    So is South America but we generally don't refer to them as "The South" when taking about regional areas of the U.S.

    You've a history of advancing the belief that affirmative action and entitlement programs that favor minorities are reverse racism. I wasn't referring to this thread specifically, although neither were you since you were descibing a perceived general quality of liberals.

    That is a lie and I challenge you to provide the direct quote where I ever said that.

    Ah. So you don't believe that affirmative action and entitlement programs that advantage minorities are racism? That a more qualified white person losing a job to a less qualified black person isn't racist?

    If so, I will retract my statement and carefully record this for use in future debates.

    No no. You don't get to put requirements on your retraction. You made an accusation and I am demanding you to provide the quote where I said "affirmative programs are reverse racism". so go ahead.

    I'll wait.

    Either admit you were talking our of your ass or provide the quote.

    Some people love to demonize "The South" when they get the chance and even when it isn't "The South" toss it in anyway.

    After all we're just a bunch of racist inbred rednecks.

    Your unwillingness to answer the question suggests you believe it is racism.

    Since you made the accusations first, I want you to compile a catalogue of threads of at least ten liberals on this site advancing arguments of which a fundamental precept is the idea conservatives in general are racists. Should be easy, since it is our auto-pilot argument. Then I will undergo a similar effort.

    Your inability to quote me after accusing me of saying something shows you can't support your own claims.

    Continuing to lie won't get you out of this. You made the first accusation. Either support it with a quote or retract it.

    Yeah, they teach it correctly where I'm from. I'm not sure what they do where you come from, though.

    First, if we make racism in Alabama = X and racism in Maryland = Y We get:

    Y = 3X

    If X = 1, then Y = 3.

    So if we break it down to racism per year in each location, we get:

    Alabama = 1/3 (or about 0.33 racism units per year)

    Maryland = 3/13 (or about 0.23 racism units per year)

    0.23 < 0.33 so Alabama would be "slightly more racist" as I said.

    Doing the same for Arizona (This time racism in Arizona = X):

    We still have Y = 3X which means that if X = 1, Y = 3

    Racism per year:

    Maryland is still 3/13 or 0.23

    Arizona is 1/25 or .04

    .23/0.04 = 5.75 or as I put it "It would also mean that Arizona would be about 6 times less racist than Maryland."


    More importantly, I was having fun with your made-up numbers.
