Oprah's windling Appeal Examined: NY Times outlines reaso...

Let it be known I am not an Oprah fan ... however, I believe it would be the white, racist "fans" who would turn their back on her simply because she starts to pay attention to black people  (May 27, 2008 | post #490)

Spike Lee Accuses Clint Eastwood of White-Washing World W...

It's surprising to know that Clint Eastwood is a racist. Now Barack knows not to be expecting his vote. As far as the racists on Topix - no surprise there. So Clint, you're trying to rewrite history or what?  (May 25, 2008 | post #598)

Hillary's looking like sore loser

A Different View - Do you believe that you know all of Reverend Wright's opinions because of that seconds-long clip you saw on TV ? How do you know how he feels about tribal leaders who sold blacks as slaves ? Furthermore, why do you try to distract from the truth ? America does have race issues today, and has a terrible track record as far as it's treatment of black people. I think the majority of black people know the history of America regarding it's treatment of black people, and it is not something that should ever be forgotten.  (May 22, 2008 | post #392)

Tiger victim's kin file claim against San Francisco

I agree. Your opinion was, perhaps, the only opinion on the first page not taunted with either jealousy or hatred for this family. Of the hundreds of thousands of zoos in the world, there cannot be one zoo employee that does not know of visitors to the zoo - taunting the animals. This is something to be expected, and if you cannot secure the animals, then perhaps the zoo should not be open. A snake may not attack unless it's hungry - it doesn't mean you leave a snake uncaged at a zoo, and expect the guests to know how to approach it. The zoo should have had that tiger caged and protected from it's guests. A zoo visitor should not have been able to be attacked by the animals. That is just not safe.  (May 18, 2008 | post #203)

Racism alarms Obama's backers

It's hilarious that there are people out there who think that black people are inferior to them and don't have as good (or better) jobs than them. I guess the truth will hit them like a ton of bricks. I personally never had to endure that wake up call because I know that scientifically, there's just no basis to pass that judgement.  (May 17, 2008 | post #1729)

Prison for Man With H.I.V. Who Spit on a Police Officer

How do you explain him getting convicted [of 35 years] if it isn't scientifically possible to spread it through saliva ?  (May 17, 2008 | post #15)

Records Show Sharpton Owes Overdue Taxes

Forget to answer what? I don't see a question. I wasn't the first to mention Martin Luther King 'in this thread' and that's what I was referring to. I only brought him up, to you, because you said he only fought against discrimination towards black people which is only logical.  (May 13, 2008 | post #93)

In fact, you're quite mistaken (Refer to page 3), but thanks for your opinion.  (May 13, 2008 | post #91)

Records Show Sharpton Owes Overdue Taxes

We can talk about MLK some other time but let's talk about Sharpton for a moment (since that's the topic of his thread). "Close the city down"... do you think that could mean protesting in such a way that disrupts business ? (Hence closing businesses) That is extremely similar to MLK and numerous other protests, strikes, demonstrations, etc... It's a common thing. To say he was going to actually commit some crime is reaching... he's never been arrested for such an act (that I know of) in the hundreds of times he's protested. I keep telling you it's a figure of speech - but you have the option of disliking him if you choose.  (May 12, 2008 | post #88)

Records Show Sharpton Owes Overdue Taxes

I already explained that "tearing a city down" is a metaphor. What city has Al Sharpton literally "torn" down ? What city is he literally "tearing " down? MLK fought peacefilly and was killed. By a white man. Period. I think that speaks for itself. I don't agree with everything Al Sharpton says but I don't dismiss him - especially because I know in this particular, what he is standing up for, is absolutely correct. And that is what I'm focusing on. Not his hair style, not Tawana Brawley, not MLK... The fact that an innocent young black man was killed, and Al Sharpton is there trying to help (not Bill Cosby) and you have the government trying to intimidate him from doing it and buttload of racists trying to bash him - when they could care less about that black man that died... As I'm sure they could care less about Martin Luther King when he was alive.  (May 12, 2008 | post #81)

The implied rule (that I did not create) is that being "part black" is considered black so that should answer your question. You can take the Miss Black America pageant to heart all you want but I don't share your view that if there were a "Miss White America", that black people would care. If you cared to do any research, you would know that the Miss America pageant used to consist ONLY of white contestants, which eventually led to the development of other pageants.... Just as it took America hundreds of years to notice that black people shouldn't be slaves, I guess it took America hundreds of years to realize that black women are beautiful. Now you're mad about other races recognizing their own beauty ? Get real. There's already a Miss America pageant that 'any american woman' can win.  (May 12, 2008 | post #78)
