    After living in the South. Yeah. I see the down side to being Black. I wouldn't want to be driving while Black in rural Alabama, for example.



    I can walk the street at night, without fear of being arrested to. However, what it all boils down to, is what street you're on. Go to da hood in the middle of the night and see how long it takes for your white butt to get picked up for buying drugs.
    So what? I get picked up and then let go. I'm white. They probably give me a ride home.

    You worte exactly what I responded to and this post confirms it. Claiming that all white people are to blame for racism is hate speech in itself.

    What I find most shocking, is how some folks think that black people are so weak minded, that a simple thing like racism will keep them down.

    I grew up in rural Louisiana. I didn't have that much trouble. I get along with southern whites better than I do northern whites, actually. I'm the only black person at my job, working with whites, Mexicans and one El Salvadoran. I have more trouble with the Mexicans than anyone else.

    Uh, yeah! Believe that!

    I bet you would trade laces with Denzel Washington. Oh wait, he's very Conservative; maybe you wouldn't. You wouldn't want your Libbo pards calling you 'Uncle Tom'.

    Interesting bit of information. THanks.

    Experienced it, more than once. Fifteen or so arrests, no convictions.

    I would trade with a young Michael Jordan. Mostly because I'd love to be able to fly. The MJ of today, not so much though.

    Why is this not a surprise.

    I think I might have been misunderstood. I didn't mean to imply the failure of the ERA to be ratified was humorous but rather the doing on 150 years it took for Mississippi to ratify the 13th long after it didnt matter anymore in any practical sense.

    Question, what rights in 2013 do you believe women are being deprived? I think of myself as an advocate for women and the only things in 2013 that I can think of are issues having to do with special protection. For example women are prohibited from joining the NFL and get their own ladies only restrooms and fitness center shower and dressing facilities. Other than things like that I can't think of anything. Do we at this point need a constitutional amendment to ensure rights that aren't being deprived? I for example don't think we need a constitutional amendment to ensure the right for me to have a pet, go on vacation at my own expense or watch TV because these are things I already can do without hindrance.

    Excellent point, apartheid was well publicized and has been used as an example to civil rights causes all over the world.

    Edi Amin, Robert Mugabe, Charles Taylor or General Abacha, true dictators and the architects of mass killing are not worth mentioninng because their tyranny cant be used to advance a cause.......well other than the cause to rid the world of evil African Dictators.....

    Hey wait, Obama's taking up that cause. He's heading up The Cause To Oust NORTH African Dictators To Enable The Installation Of Islamic Theocracies.

    You know, T.C.T.O.N.A.D.T.E.T.I.O.I.T.

    Just rolls of the tongue doesn't it ?

    So who's next on his list ? Mugabe ?
