    He was nice and friendly to everyone but me. Everyone else was white. What does this tell you? I was not the only male in the class. I was however the only black male in the class. He went out of his way to stay away from me to the point that other people noticed. What does this tell you?

    I was a cop, so don't play that doing his job **** with me. If I was white, I would not have been stopped. If I was white, I would not have been pulled over so many times in the town a Matteson, Illinois I had to threaten a lawsuit. What does this tell you?



    I was a cop. Yes I know. I also had to threaten a lawsuit and they stopped. This was in what? 87? Don't act like I am some kind of moron, please.



    I was not breaking any law, I WAS A COP.



    I WAS NOT SPEEDING, I WAS A COP.

    I love Cain, I really do. This is however a perfect example of how conservatives try so hard to deny racism exists.

    Im not denying racism exists....

    Im just asking..... just please..... begging even...... for your own sanity and well being....... consider there are reasons outside of your race why people are doing some things first, unless they PROVE to you that it is because of your race.

    Everytime a black woman with a ****ty attitude snubs me... I don't assume its because I am white. I assume she is just having a ****ty attitude day, or its just how she acts.

    When I don't get what I want, its not because I think the black person refusing to give it to me is racist, its because maybe, just maybe, they CAN'T give me that of which I am asking for.



    All I ask is that black people take OTHER things into consideration before claiming it is racism.



    PS. As for the dude stopping you walking down the street. Maybe you were called on because you were black........... We get that alot in the Polease world.... but you should know that.... I call them "Minority in my Neighborhood" calls.
    "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" "
    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.

    Actually I miss typed. I agree with Mr. Foxx.

    I don't know if I passed them or they saw me from behind or the front. I just know I never got a ticket and had to threaten a law suite. Comprende?
    How does a lie or exaggeration prove racism exists? It would seem to me it proves just the opposite. It also tells me that you would lie about a white person just to get him. You should NOT be in law enforcement.

    Yeah, and they stop me because I'm a redhead.
    Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.

    Nothing racist in what he said.
    The last one I saw?
    Probably Men in Black 3

    but I don't see a lot of movies....

    Ah, okay. I was with you and then that part of those post took a 180 and I was like, "Well, where did that come from?"

    Exactly. I agree with his point in the OP, but other than that, I just think of him as another arrogant celebrity who I would kindly like to stfu most of the time.

    Without any evidence, its just as valid for Maenad to claim she was stopped for being a redhead as Blackdog claiming he was stopped for being black.

    They just were! is not good enough for me.... sorry...... I need a REASON to potentially harm someone's career or life more than just paranoid insecurity on the part of the wronged or allegedly wronged person.

    Caine, in all seriousness, you know I don't like people who scream racism at the drop of a hat. I did however grow up in one of the most racist towns in the Midwest, Chicago. I was run out of Bridgeport Illinois because I was black (we got lost) no need to guess we got the hell out of there. We were chased by a mob that came OPUT OF THE BAR TO GET US. I have story's about not being served in a Shell station in Frankfort Illinois etc. Now most of this was in the 80's. What can I say, for the most part I know the difference.

    Please, you have given me no indication you are racist and I have not assumed such.

    I agree, which is why I used very specific story's. I have plenty more to. I don't think you realize how often it happens. I know sometimes I have been wrong or was just not certain.

    As for the last one, that is possible and exactly my point. If I was a white man, do you honestly think the police would have been called?

    Oh, my God. Come up with something better than "you're so stupid and I'm educated on this topic", will you please. Your comments are about as baseless as the claims that racism is why Republicans didn't want Rice nominated for Secretary of State.
