    Again I ask. Provide me a quote, or even something arguably similar, of the CBC stating that the black race is the "Chosen People"

    Of ocusre you won't provide such a thing, you'll just continue to try and ignore the topic, continue to refrain from saying even a mild word of rebuke towards the group that's ACTUALLY being discussed in the OP, refused to actually take even CLOSE to the similar stand in terms of accusations of that group as you do to liberals in general, the CBC, or other "left" groups, and then continue to act all offended and shocked when people suggest that there is tacit approval or at the very least acceptance by some in this thread of the KKK and OBVIOUS racism and suggest that you're attempting to distract by childish whining of "BUT BUT...LIBERALS ARE BAD!" while trying to defend and/or excuse the grou pi nthe OP

    First....I really hope you stick around and post more. Seem to be rather sensable and take the time to put thought into replies.

    Secondly....amen. This goes back to a discussion Tucker and I had in the "white privledge" thread. One can think that blacks have been given a bad hand due to their race and treated horribly while at the same time thinking that such a thing does not somehow mean that it justifies wrong perpetrated by a black man. Two wrong's don't make a right. Racism, Prejudice, and Bigotry are Racism, Prejudice, and Bigotry regardless of color and is not a good thing in general regardless of the individuals color. While perhaps at some points it may be more "understandable" that it occurs...and even that could be said at times for a white person....something being "understandable" doesn't make it "correct. Racial based prejudice of blacks against whites is no less morally or ethically objectionable than the other way around. Perhaps a bit more "understandable", but not less objectionable.

    Re: Alabama Pastor holds 'whites only' conference

    There are a few different groups I seem to notice when it comes to these types of scenarios.

    1. Some people think that it is wrong for anyone to be excluded from a group/event/club/whatever based on the color of their skin regardless of what color they are.

    2. Some people think that it is wrong to exclude minorities from a group/event/club/whatever based on the color of their skin.

    3. Some people think that it is wrong to exclude whites from a group/event/club/whatever based on the color of their skin.

    4. Some people think people should be allowed to do what they want.

    If you fall in to group 2 or 3, you are a racist. You should accept that.

    They have every right to do whatever they want. I have yet to see anybody say otherwise. As Misterveritis pointed out, we'll let what they say and do be the measure of who they are.

    They said they believe whites are superior, and they will be burning a cross. Go ahead and make your own judgement of who they are based on that.

    So we're both a racist and an overly politically correct nation simultaneously?

    As long as it belongs to you burn it or keep it.

    Nobody's saying it should be "illegal." But we are calling this out for what it is - a bunch of prejudiced white guys burning a cross. Which sounds exactly like a KKK meeting to me.
    What would be different if they have real grievances? Isn't that why they held their meeting? By the way, what happened? Did anything bad happen?

    "real grievances" or imagined ones. The threat remains even when nothing has happened so far.

    I believe there is a technical phrase that covers it. "Getting-even-with-ism".

    Possibly, but this has nothing to do with the charge of racism.

    so by your own admission, the CBC isn't racist.
    of course they aren't racist... we all know that the color of your skin determines how effectively you can govern your constituency... ain't that right, Thunder?
