    It doesn't, that's my point. I am 50 years old lady, I got no reason to lie.

    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.
    Obviously we can't trust their judgement. No wonder we don't let them serve on a jury.

    Nobody has to prove anything to you so your needs are irrelevant. You have the luxury of not having to see what you don't want to see when it comes to racism and it's become fairly clear over the course of several threads that you've taken full advantage of that privilege. Stop pretending that there is actually something that could convince you that something other than blatant racism like lynching a black man in 1945 is racism. Hell, the way you're going, if this forum existed in 1945, you'd probably be the one guy saying, "how do you KNOW they lynched him because he was black?" I'm over your BS.

    Don't tell me what to do. If you're so concerned with the quality of posting around here, maybe you should deal with the BS I responded to or people like johnny_rebson posting purposely racist nonsense. But I guess that kind of stuff doesn't warrant the same criticism? You agree with it?

    I technically wouldn't call it racism I guess, but it's in the same ballpark.

    I honestly thinks it's wrong to recognize race at all, because it's just not appropriate and isn't something that is proven to physically exist...

    If I support any kind of political correctness, I would support that it isn't right to call someone white or black, etc... I admit I do at times, but it doesn't cross my mind with everything I do like it does for a lot of black people, all people are guilty of this obviously but Im just focusing on this cause of the OP.

    When people say, "Im Black"... they arn't referring to their skin color... they are referring to a common alternate American culture that exists... but the word itself is prejudice, because it names a culture based on race and skin color, so it is used as a tool to group and label an entire population of African decented people against their will. These very labels keeps the prejudices alive and it keeps populations separate and foreign from each other as if they literally belong to different groups and don't belong with each other.

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?
    It is possible, depending on the person.

    Some people are just paranoid of anything that moves in the night.... you said it was early morning..... if it was early morning enough for it to still be dark out... then it could be because you were black, it could be because that person was paranoid at anything that moves in the night.

    I've seen calls come in when NOT black people but DIFFERENT people.

    One guy called in on a "suspicious person" because there were two teenaged white kids walking around the neighborhood at 11:30pm on a Friday night... one of them had a green mohawk.

    THEY MUST BE UP TO NO GOOD!!!!
    "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.

    All valid points man. You could be correct in that case. And yes it was early morning. Really though you know how I feel about the thin skinned crying of racism. I would not say it was so unless I was pretty certain man.

    So clearly you believe that it is feasable to prove racism by lying.
    Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.

    Like I said before, these people don't understand that racism no longer exists.
