    You have demonstrated you don't have clue one where it comes to what the Bible says or what it teaches and now you babble on about something you have no knowledge but hate anyway.

I was held at gunpoint several times, but mostly it was people from Wolfson HS just ****ing with us. I hear that Wolfson has become one of the best schools in the area due to selective enrollment. I went to Forrest my sophomore year. Decent school back then...they bussed black kids in, played sports with them...didnt have a problem.

    Jacksonville is one of the largest cities in the country by area. Parts of the city are great. Other parts...not so much. I lived in Sweetwater. People were living in half finished houses and trailers. As scary as downtown Jacksonville was, I can tell you race was a zero on our givea****ometer where I lived. In Macon...it was all backwoods. My friends dad owned a construction business and made and sold white lightning. We worked for him during the summers and long weekends cleaning sites. I'm sure some folk out there were racist, but there were blacks, whites, and Cubans that worked for him and there was never any static.

    I went back to Jacksonville for a conference last year. Sealed it for me. Never have a need or reason to go back.
    I felt that way about Jacksonville since I left in 70s. But you describe the place I grew up in. Today I speak to students about busing every MLK day here. I actually have a story some enjoy.

    But I think the point is blacks were not happier.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Blacks in general were certainly not and anyone that thinks there was not significant problems would be a fool. But in the context that this is all being discussed...Robertsons comments were not that there were no racial conflict or strife...merely that where he was he didnt see it. Thats realistic. Hell, you can talk to people in inner cities today and their perspective will be radically different from others.

    I find it hypocritical when an individual is outraged over one person receiving a consequence for his actions, while having been outraged by basically the same actions of other people, and insisting that they receive the same consequence they find unacceptable when applied to someone they agree with.

    It isn't impossible for them to have signed such a contract, nor is it impossible this whole thing has been staged to increase public viewing. All of it is really speculation though as noone is showing the contract they signed. It's almost a gurantee that there is a contract of some sorts because A&E and the Robertson's are not stupid enough to not do a show without a contract of some sorts.
    Many of those things are for the respective attorneys to hash out....If A&E keeps the series name Duck Dynasty, oh well, maybe they name the show something else, and carry on.... But saying they can't do something because they have a contract, really means little if someone is willing to absorb the cost of litigation.

    I think it to be very hypocritical too. However if it reaches the point of unfounded slander of an individual, we have laws to deal with that. I am a real big supporter of free speech. Because I find it offensive isn't enough to jump on a bandwagon to have it banned. On the contrary, it should be countered with even more free speech!
