It's depressing to watch you continually fail at gathering simple facts together and creating a concise and well thought out conclusion out of them.

    I don't know. But I'm convinced that when he does he'll have a better grasp of statistics than you do. Hell, he'll probably just know what they are. Which is more than what we could say for you after your complete self ownage.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Newest Michigan museum showcases racist artifacts [W:103]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.

    Conservatives generally follow the rules set by their culture. I was in Mississippi Aug 68 - May 69, and there were a lot of conservative Democrats to be cautious of there. Most of the locals were not themselves dangerous. But all the locals were following the rules of their culture. So where have you been looking, in the mirror?

    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.

    I don't think that the display of our more dark periods are what is being objected to, but rather whom the tale behind the artifacts depicts as villainous.

    Let's get one thing straight about calling a black a "nigger".

    Its OK.

    If you are black.

    Which only further demonstrates the hypocrisy of black culture in the US.

    And the BS of liberals.
