You are the latter.

    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.
    So you admit that it is okay to assume that someone did something because they were racist without one shred of proof.

    I rest my case. I hope one day you don't have to tell a whiney black person, "No" to some type of request they make in the workplace which is then followed by you being accused of racism and losing your job over the baseless accusation.

    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.

    Hate to tell you, but all races are not equal. Some are far more equal than others in terms of certain skills. And some are far more compromised in terms of illnesses and disease, example sickle cell anemia.

    Not everything on the Internets is so serious. But of course, my humor isn't always humorous.

    Well I think we just figured you out.

    Have a nice day.

    1. Your eyes are not unclouded. You speak through unacknowledged white privilege. As for your conclusions as to who/what I am, you couldn't have come to a conclusion farther from the truth which is not at all surprising given your stubborn ignorance.

    2. I didn't say that.

    3. I hope nothing for you. You've already shown yourself to be far beyond that.

    Please. I made a post about mental illness and SSI/welfare and was accused here of being a racist when it had nothing to do with race in any way, shape, or form. When people are so quick to throw that term around, do not be shocked that some people don't take it seriously. It is the Little Boy Who Cried Wolf syndrome. There are some horrible statistics out there indicating some serious issues with the black community, most of which are economic and the lingering result of segregation compounded by welfare dependency. How can we ever have a serious discussion when the left accuses every republican or anybody else who did not vote for Obama a racist, or the mere mention of public benefits is racist? When people are ready to step-off their victim high-horse, there are people willing to have those serious discussions. Until then, this is the bed that has been made.

    Oh, let me guess.

    "You are uneducated and I, the play drive, are the elite and supreme master of knowledge in the universe!"

    That is pretty much what your discussion in this thread amounts to.
    "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" "

    Please, everytime the issue comes up you're one of the first ones jumping on the "White men are the most persecuted people alive" bandwagon.

    When a cop runs a license plate for wants/warrants, he automatically finds out all he needs about the registered owner of the car. He doesn't have to find out that a black man is driving the car to pull him over - he already found out when he ran his plates.

    I love Jamie Foxx, and think he's a great actor, a great singer and a great piano player. He's also very funny. I just wish he wouldn't turn everything into race. Reminds me kind of a little like that Samuel L. Jackson character in Die Hard with a Vengeance. Dooood, not everything is about race.
    I just don't understand this obsession black people have with race. It's not as though race has ever been a factor in the social and political structure of america. They act as though being black has been a disadvantage in this country! I mean look at us white folks - do we obsess or whine about about being white? Of course not!
