    Talk is cheap. You're thundering around this forum judging people and declaring them racists. You're like a Fundie preacher proclaiming people to be sinners!!!!!

    I want to see if you live by the code you profess. Have you sought out a neighborhood with supremely high diversity so that you can fully enjoy that anti-racist environment?

    I moved into my house because it was close to my stepdaughter father's house and we could be more near her.
    But if anti-racism is so important then shouldn't that value come before the value of living close to your stepdaughter's residence? You're firing salvos at people who value liberty higher than anti-racism and declaring that they're wrong for valuing liberty so highly, that they should jettison their support for liberty and adopt "anti-racism at all costs" as their highest value. Well, if you're calling on them to adopt "anti-racism as the highest value" then shouldn't you be doing the same? Move to the most diverse neighborhood you can find even if it means moving away from your stepdaughter because you've told us all that no value can be higher than anti-racism.

    For such a brave fighter, you sure are doing everything you can to not answer a simple question:

    How is letting businesses exclude blacks not racism?

    I'm done being trolled. Either you get it and you're egging this on, or I need flash cards I don't currently have on me. Have a nice night.

    I claimed that BUSINESSES and SCHOOLS should not be able to kick out blacks. YOU are in support of them being able to. Please tell me again where I live at has WHAT to do with racism? Am I kicking people out from where I live? NO. do you support kicking out blacks from schools and businesses? YES. Nuff said on who supports racism. YOU do.

    So, treating people like crap doesn't matter unless they do the crappier thing?
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Tomboy pressured to leave Christian school [W: 87]Quit discussing each other and get back to discussing the topic.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I pointed out how letting businesses exclude blacks is racism, and you said that it sounded stupid.

    So why won't you explain how it's not racism to let businesses exclude blacks?

    Is it because you know it is racism (which is why you wouldn't do that yourself), and that by supporting it, you are supporting racism?

    You know, there's a word for people who support racism, don't you?

    BTW, if you had a business why wouldn't you exclude blacks?

    Okay, listen really, really carefully. I mean really carefully.

    If I have a business and I personally forbid blacks, I am a racist.

    If someone ELSE has a business that refuses to serve blacks, but I refuse to actively destroy it, I am not racist.

    Tell me how I hate gays because I ate lunch at a Chick-Fil-A yesterday.

    I never claimed anything, I just jumped into a discussion that was already taking place. My position is that public schools have no business in racially discriminating. They should operate on an all-comers basis. Businesses are not government, they're private and they should have the right to discriminate as they please, just like you're not government and should have the freedom to live where you please and associate with whomever you please.

    Please tell me again where I live at has WHAT to do with racism?
    Tell you again? Why, are you "hard of reading?" I can understand someone who is near deaf asking for a person to repeat what they said, but why do I need to repeat what I wrote, why can't you just read what I wrote again and again and again until you understand it?

    Let me help you out because I don't want anyone to charge that I'm picking on an invalid. I think that you're all talk, I want to see if you put anti-racism as the highest value in your life. The best way to do that is to see where you've chosen to live and where you've chosen to send your stepdaughter to school. After all, if anti-racism is so great and diversity is so great, then why would you want to deny your stepdaughter the pleasure, joy and enriching experience of experiencing diversity in its full glory in the middle of a ghetto.

    Now to be honest with you, I do understand why you're fighting so hard to not reveal your zip code, you don't want to be publicly exposed as hypocrite. You're kind of like Senator Larry Craig shooting off his mouth about the evils of homosexuality and then cruising public restrooms with his "wide stance" in search of some hot homosexual restroom sex.
