    They do need to get over it.

    And there you have it. The leftwing hero is a bonafide modern day racist.
    Spoken like someone who will never experience what it is to be oppressed, to see signs every day that society values you less. It is inescapable. It never goes away. Every black American experiences this, every Hispanic, every Jew, every Muslim, every atheist, every woman, every homosexual, every Indian (Hindu or American), every Asian, and everyone who isn't the supposed "default" heterosexual white Christian male in this country. It comes up literally every day of your life that society treats you as inferior.

    Jamie Fox does not have to be color blind. In fact, it is encouraged and accepted for him to take race into account in every single thing that he does.

    My only point in this whole "race discussion" is that an honest discussion cannot be had if one side is too afraid to speak on the issue for being labeled a racist while the other controls the discussion.
    No, you don't get it. You probably never will. And no, no one expects you to be color-blind. No one expects anyone to be color-blind. But you have the option not to be. Jamie Fox doesn't. And color-blindness isn't the issue. It's bigotry that is. It's viewing races as in competition with each other. It's assuming that a person's race necessarily affects their character, rather than understanding that character comes from background which is affected by the way we treat different races.

    I'm not color-blind and no one has ever accused me of being racist.

    And they will . . . as I said earlier, when enough people have enough sex with enough people . . . we will all end up looking like Filipinos, then we will only discriminate against lip size.

    No no no. If A B C D E F and all those are true, then racism is part and parcel of human nature. If you diminish it, you diminish humanity because despite all the ideology in the world and in the most ideologically infused places, it still rises to the surface. It like a natural, normal response of human beings to have. Like all other natural responses to the environment. Like reaction to hunger, cold, hot, etc.

    A) There are prominent blacks in all aspects of public life (government, congress, etc)
    B) There are prominent blacks in all aspect of intellectual life (thomas sowell, Neil degrasse tyson, the most popular ones)
    C) There are prominent blacks in sports (you name it)
    D) There are prominent blacks in business (CEO of Mcdonalds and Xerox-> its even a black woman)
    E) There are prominent blacks in showbis, the most liberal environemnt in the world.
    F) Everywhere in general... you can find prominent blacks

    Again. if all these are true... and they are... because they are facts... then there is no way around it. To be a racist is to be a human being and diminishing it will diminish you as a human being.

    Or you can choose to accept that many of the ones who complain about racism are actually full of ****. Especially the big holywood stars and other prominent blacks.

Be thankful for that instead of denigrating people who don't have that luxury.
    It is cheap and whiny when no such evidence exists. This guy was complaining about Ritz crackers and cheese being racist. Was it the 'cracker' part that got to him?

    I'm not denying that racism, sexism or homophobia doesn't exist, I'm only saying that sometimes people just do something rude or unthoughtful that has nothing to do with race. Rudeness and ignorance happens to all people.

    Conservatives don't really understand the term 'generational effects'. They feel that if one guy can make it out of poverty, so can everyone else and the rest is moot. 300 years of slavery, Jim Crow and government imposed poverty done away with in 1964. Lolz.

    That's hilarious.

    Just because there are prominent black people in these positions does not automatically erase racism.

    Or you can choose to accept that many of the ones who complain about racism are actually full of ****. Especially the big holywood stars and other prominent blacks.
    I didn't know that Hollywood stars speak for entire peoples.
