    You mean to tell me that a small GA town of about 1200, many of who's own residents were opposed to this, is proof that SC is the most racist state in the country. Well I guess you got me there. If that isn't iron clad I dont know what is.

    I live here. You know not whereof you speak... you're just spewing ignorant bigotry and mindless hate exactly like Dylann Roof and the Klan.


    And that's the nicest thing I can manage to say in response to your mindless drivel.

    You're referring to the outcome of this guy's trial, in which he will almost certainly be found guilty.

    That's because the prosecutor in this case will be extremely careful to specifically select members of the jury who aren't racist, during the voir dire process. Despite SC being racist, state officials know better than to let that racism be unnecessarily exposed nationwide.

    They key word there is unnecessarily. It's not going to cut it, because the trial of the White cop who shot Walter Scott will have the opposite outcome--he'll be found not guilty of murder since, unlike the trial of this perp who shot dead all these church members, the prosecutor will be obligated to side w/the defendant (a cop) in picking jury members.

    And then SC's reputation will become very clear to the rest of the county, if it hasn't already hasn't

    I've been talking to lots of people here in SC. Everyone is appalled and heartbroken. Not one person, not even the scruffiest redneck, has said one word of affirmation of Roof or his actions in my hearing.



    That some people are using this tragedy to push their ignorant and bigoted view of white southerners is sick.

    Are you just trolling this thread? Seriously. Are you?

    Walter Scott has nothing to do with any of this. But along those lines the idea that the prosecution is siding with the defendant is rediculous. The prosecutor is going to try and likely succeed at convicting that cop. The prosecutor charged him with first degree murder, and he has no bail. The only difference between the cop and this kid is the number of charges as far as prosecution is going to be concerned.

    We can all come up with "good examples" of everything. The Westboro Baptists aren't representative of Baptists. Susan Smith isn't representative of mothers. Ted Bundy wasn't representative of northwest law students. Charles Manson wasn't representative of song writing hippies.

    There are racists in this country. There are also sexists, ageists, and on and on and on. No ****. You think anyone thinks otherwise?

    Glen habitually and repeatedly says the south is racist. There are racists in the south. To anyone with half of a functioning brain that does not mean the south is racist.
    What he says is there is a large racist element of racism, which is a holdover from centuries of state enforced racism that wasn't officially over until after I was born, and that the South is a relative holdout compared to the rest of the country. I don't have any doubt that's true.

    I'm not sure why it's at all controversial to point out that the South is different (i.e. racism is more widespread) than the NE or the Mountain West. It just is, and for reasons that are simple to identify. Anyone born in the South pre-1970 or so had parents (on average) who fought like heck to preserve Jim Crow in this region. That just affects lifetime attitudes for millions living and voting right now.

    Quite right. They may not have the gun in their hand but they are encouraging hatreds as certain as whoever had this influence on Roof.

    Here's a list of the most segregated cities in the country.

    Sorry, demographic segregation, which may have historical roots in racism, is not evidence of current institutional racism, since it's not forced,

    as opposed to sanctioned segregation--the case of the prom cited above, which is.

    Can you cite other areas of the country not in South where there are still segregated proms?

The claim that this guy is being worshipped by the whites in SC because all or most of the whites in SC are racist is about as ignorant as anything Ive seen on DP, and I've seen quite a bit of ignorance on here.

    Congrats again. You managed to post an even more disgusting comment with no basis in fact.

    I feel sorry for people like you.
