    More BS I see. Kind of sad you believe it.

    Oh sorry, you've just got a bunch of posts arguing with people who think he was wrong. Do you even know what the thread is about?

    For real apdst - putting lefties, politics, and any other bull**** aside do you think what this guy said was racist or not? If not, why not?
    It depends on his intent. Does he hate black folks? I mean, black folks call each other nigger all the time and it isn't considered racist, and spare me the, "but, that's different", bull****.

    I believe racism exists in action, not words. Some people grew up hearing, "nigger", and just don't know any better. Some people really believe that there's a difference between black folks and niggers and those same people believe that you don't have to be black to be a nigger. This dude is 80! When he was a teenager, nigger was probably an accepted, or at least tolerated word.

    Now, because he called Obama a nigger does that make him a racist? Does it mean, absolutely, that he hates black folks? We have no way of knowing. He could possibly treat black people better than the biggest do-gooder Libbo in the world. He might be extremely well liked and respected among the black folks that live near him. I find it extremely small minded to label this man a full-blown racist because he said nigger, especially in light of the same people who are condemning him are the same ones who defend the use--and use the terms themselves--of afore mentioned racial slurs.

    The only writhing has been his apologists and people pretending they don't care while posting about it.

    Very good. You showed the effect of conditioning, how most white Americans make at least some decisions based on race, and that this is often a matter not of deliberation, but of reflex. Now, did you disprove what I pointed out in reply #103? No, you did not.

    Understand that while there are still so many white Americans that are racist, most white Americans are trying their level best to not be racist. Will we as a whole become "not racist" in this generation? Of course not. But with each generation, we will become less and less racist. It takes more time and patience than you and I will have in our lifetimes, but that time will come. Have faith, and do not hate.

    Overall, most white Americans - most AMERICANS - are trying their level best to not be racist, to correct their behavior. Likely none of them will be 100% successful...but the important thing is not the 100% success, but the earnest effort to reach that point.

    Again, guy, you need to learn not to hate, learn not to make sweeping judgments of others based on their race (because you certainly did just that) - because when you do, in the eyes of racists you're only justifying the hatred they have of you. You have to be better and rise above. When you return spite for spite, all they'll give you in return is spite - it's the same reason why someone who wants to take revenge on another man should dig two graves. But if you return spite with dignity and courtesy and kindness, many of them will still hate you for what you are...but some will see the spiteful image of their fellows and compare it to what they see in you, and they will change their ways. If you want to diminish racism by others, that is how to do so.

    Well, not hate alone.
