I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
Moderator's Warning: Before any more infractions are issued, I'd recommend that everyone knock it off with the personal attacks, insults and the other off-topic bs that has already taken place.
Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
I see nothing wrong in displaying racist artifacts. Any museum with a half-decent Buddhist collection will have swastikas. Holocaust Museums, founded and sponsored by Jews no less, include anti-Semitic exhibits. Almost any Museum of Fine Arts includes a collection of violent imagery from Christianity's days of forced conversions and indigenous genocides. Southern heritage museums, such as the Levine Museum of the New South in Charlotte, a very progressive institution that takes pride in racial harmony, features display cases of Ku Klux Klan hoods and regalia, as well as photographs of lynchings. History is rife with racism and tragedy. To not include anything offensive would defeat the educational purpose that museums serve. The mere presence of racist iconography ought not be prohibited. The context in which such items are displayed should be all that matters.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Sounds like these "racist artifacts" demonstrate racism and bigotry by non-blacks against blacks.
What a friggin shock
Where's the black crime museum ?
Let's get one thing straight about calling a black a "nigger".
If you are black.
Which only further demonstrates the hypocrisy of black culture in the US.
And the BS of liberals.
