"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
"After all, you know, there are worse things in life than death. I mean, if you've ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman, you know exactly what I mean."
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
Is it just me, or is it kind of disturbing that not one conservative can step up and say "that's ****ed up" or "using a racial slur was wrong, even if it was only one person."
Anyone interested in hypocrisy only need google 'race riots in Europe'.
SMB, my good sir. What points did you even make? You suggested that Ole Miss is full of a bunch of racists. You suggested that how dare people stand around and ... I don't know what you expected fellow students to do? Fight the protesters? They called the cops and dispersed them? Racism is dying. It is not nearly as bad as you think it is. Of course there are still racists, and for years there will be some. But if you really think that white people just huddle around the baby when it's born and say "How can we make him hate others who aren't like him?" I mean is that what you think? Dude people in Mississippi are awesome and very open minded. People at Ole Miss are some of the best in the nation. South Korean's Pakistani's etc etc. Really neat campus, really loving people. I'm sorry you can't grasp this.
