    Re: Tenn. trooper suspended over white pride e-mail

    My question is, did this yahoo actually use the term "white pride", or was that added by the writer of the article? The use of that term by the trooper would include him in some very unsavory company, the adding of it by the writer would be a biased escalation of the issue.

    Does it matter? He's white. It was clearly demeaning to black people (They have feelings too, you know!) What more is there to know. This guy is lucky some Civil Rights lynch mob isn't after him.

    So the trooper is a hardcore racist. He should not be in a profession where he is serving justice to minorities. Here is the original email, a chain letter for bigots:

    You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction.
    You call me "Cracker", "Honkey", "Whitey" and even "The Man" and you think
    it's OK.
    But when I call you, "Nigger", "Kike", "Towelhead", "Sand-Nigger", "Camel
    Jockey", "Beaner" or "Chink" you call me a racist.

    You say that you want to make a change in this country.
    How? By protesting everything that we believe in? By trying to change
    everything that has made this country run fine for centuries?


    You have Martin Luther King Day.
    You have Cesar Chavez Day.
    You have Yom Hashoah
    You have Cinco de Mayo
    You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi
    You have BET.


    If we had WET(white entertainment television) we'd be racists.


    If we had a White Pride Day you would call us racists.


    If we had white history month, we'd be racists.


    In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race
    and rights.
    If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us the KKK.


    You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're not afraid
    to announce it.
    But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.


    You call each other "niggas", but when we call you that, you call us
    racists.


    You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us.
    But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a
    black drug-dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you
    call him a racist.


    When was the last time you saw Jessie Jackson involved with anything to do
    with white people.


    We work hard to perserve our history.
    You come along and try to re-write it.


    We want a safe environment for our families and children.
    You want to bring the ghetto to our neighborhoods.


    I am white.
    I am proud.
    I am an American.


    But, you call me a racist.
    Why is it that only whites can be racists?
    Don't do reverse discrimination, take your own advice.


    Everyone is a racist to some degree. Whether you're black, white, asian, or
    green for all I care. This is a neverending fight.....people will always be
    racist. So learn to live with it.

    Could you point out the language, ideas, policies, or behavior that you believe seeks to minimize a social offense in a gender, racial, cultural, sexual orientation, handicap or age-related context?

    "The e-mail from Trooper Brent Gobbell states, in part, "You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member ... you call him a racist." It also includes a list of racist epithets."
    Progress ?
    Fifty years ago, this was standard fare, and any "misbehaving" black man would be lynched.
    Several hundred years to eradicate racism, lets start now...or a hundred years from now, then by 2500 this will be an unpleasant memory.
    And, the so-called "Black Americans" do have their work cut out, as well.

    White Trooper suspended for E-mail regarding Minorities in a less-than-polite manner.


    The situation speaks for itself...
