    At least you're learning. This is as exciting as watching monkies learn to use tools.

    You can't make up your mind which lie you want to promote: the one where I'm really white, or the one where I'm really black and erroneously believe that I think the wrong side won the Civil War.

    Hard to keep the lies straight, huh?

    He does live in Louisiana, a state which kept it's "One Drop Rule" on the books until 1983
    Susie Guillory Phipps, The State of Louisiana, and the One-Drop Rule | 1ne Drop

    In 1977, Susie Guillory Phipps and her husband began planning a vacation to South America. In order to travel, they would need current passports; and in order to apply for passports, they would need official copies of their birth certificates. <snip> At the age of 48, she discovered something about herself that would make her physically ill for the three days that followed – she was “Colored.”

    Susie Guillory Phipps had 3/32 Negro blood – her great-great-great-great grandmother was an enslaved African woman by the name of Marguerite.

    In the end, the State of Louisiana upheld the “one-drop rule” and Susie Guillory Phipps lost her case.

    The State of Louisiana repealed its law on racial classification 6 years later in 1983, but because the repeal was not retroactive, to date, Susie Guillory Phipps remains Black by law.

    Just a note....In reading this thread, I find it simply amazing that in this thread where the perpetrators are are described as from a fraternity that touts its "diversity, and support of equal rights", so immediately the conversation starting out was one of how the leftist members didn't think it was meant to be a "racist action" or that it was just "a joke in bad taste".....Where as the same OP starter in another thread takes a mention of militia in a plot, and immediately the perps are "RIGHT WING!!!!!"

    How easily some are just plain duped.

    You probably didn't notice that I put the word 'black' in quotation marks when referring to you. I think you are as black as Casper the Friendly Ghost.

    I think there's a point you are trying to make here, but it eludes me. Of course, I'm one of those dreaded 'libbos', so maybe I just don't understand conservative speak.

    How do you know I'm not black?

    Are you that much of a closetted racist that it matters either way? Are you now some sort of expert about the opinions of all black people? Better you should give the NAACP a call, I'm sure they would find someone with such a talent useful.

    How do I know you are? Because you claim to be? We all make judgments about posters based on our experiences with them. I've made mine on you.

    Thanks for participating. Now, shouldn't you get back to supporting whatever Far Right cause is near and dear to you this week?

    Where did a "leftist" member of this forum argue that this case wasn't a racist action or that it was "just a joke"?
