    Its historical.........

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    It's good that it's there. It should stay there. If we don't remember history, we're doomed to repeat it.

    Re: Want to be class president? Not if you're black, in one Miss. school

    I thought Breaking News Thread Titles had to mimic their Article title?

    The title of the article in the OP is "Miss-School drops race based rules for student elections."

    So why is the thread titled "Want to be class president? not if your black, in one Miss. school"
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "

    It was the original headline. Obviously, someone discovered that the headline writer didn't understand the story.

    I agree, should be in the "Bias in the Media" section.

    Lol no were not. No one is going to wake up one day and be like "You know what would be swell? If we could keep move all the whites one way, and then make a brown town."

    Anyways, my understanding and the NAACP's understanding of it is that it would alternate but seriously why do people act surprised that they did this? This isn't a normal state were talking about it's good ole Mississippi where the racism is so great, you can taste it in the food.
