    Lumping all people with dark skin under one heading. That single phrase prefacing his speech may be the most racist thing he said that day.
    This kind of language is so common among racists and bigots they see nothing wrong with it.

    Your opinion of what he said is just absurdly wrong.

    It's all about cost? What happened to rule of law? You guys used to make a big deal of that but now? I guess it is all a matter of WHO is enforcing the law not the laws themselves. The Govt. acted correctly and competently. I suppose you would have rather had a shoot out so you could bitch about it like Ruby Ridge.

    unless he was reading a line from a movie or something, I cant imagine what context would help.

    Re: Bundy questioned whether blacks were better off as slaves

    It seems the arguement is on "degrees" of racism. This of course is based solely outward expression.

    What usually festers to the surface is an indication of the putrid goings on inside.

    Call me nuts but I WANT the Clippers to win the NBA Finals, or at least get to the Finals. Here's my take: The best way to keep this controversy from being swept under the rug is to put the spotlight on the Clippers. Imagine the NBA finals with an empty stadium. Imagine the news that would create. Globally. I think a lot of people harbor racist attitudes deep down but usually shut up about it. I think its a problem in the US but especially internationally and much if not most of the globe looks to America as its social, political and cultural leader. This helps bring it out in the open to be addressed.

    You DO get that I wasnt the one that OFFERED the hypothetical in the first place...right? Funny how you both missed that part.
    But YOU are the one who kindly told us how we'd feel about it.
