    I don't recall I have ever said that.

    Just because I acknowledge BOTH blacks and whites...... as well as hispanic folks deal with problems from prejudices does not mean that I am jumping on the "White men are the most persecuted people alive" bandwagon. I am allowed to acknowledge that whites are also treated unfairly due to race without believing such a flawed philosophy.

    I swear some people around here think that because one number is larger than another, we ignore the smaller number as if it doesn't exist.

    (If you can't get the analogy, because blacks are discriminated against more often than whites we have to ignore the discrimination against whites as if he doesn't exist).

    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.

    I don't run plates of speeders before pulling them over.... policy dictates if I go over the speed limit I must use lights and sirens. If I am to catch a speeder I must exceed their speed, thus I have already activated lights and sirens to pull someone over before having the opportunity to run their plate.........

    Now you are just being stupid.

    Yes, blacks have been disadvantages..... yes... we all ****ing get it.

    Now what we want people to do is quit hiding behind their race and get out and do something. This isn't the 1950s... 60s.... or even 80s...... Yes blacks are going to get slighted by some individual somewhere. Focusing on that level of paranoia isn't healthy.

    Successful black men and women have not made it to where they are by getting offended at every turn by what they perceive may or may not be some individual discriminating against them due to their skin color.



    And, as far as I am concerned, I am sick of giving those who complain of racism in every little word the respect and attention... and in some cases pity.... that they think they deserve.

    Re: 'As a black person it's always racial': Django Unchained star Jamie Foxx explains

    This is what stood out to me in the OP

    "Super stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington and Jamie spoke to Vibe magazine
    'I come into this place to do a photo shoot and they got Ritz crackers and cheese.

    'I'll be like, ain't this a b***h. Y'all didn't know black people was coming.'

    In the same vein he explained that if he turned up to the photo shoot and there was fried chicken and watermelon, he would also be annoyed at the stereotype."

    It seems that Jaime would not be happy with ritz crackers but if there was a more ethnic meal he would be offended as well, so I say ignore him and his hypersensativity.

    It is 100% his problem and a very sad way to live a life.

    I'm sure black people everywhere will study your words and alter their behavior to comply with the right wing libertarian view of the world.

    White people in Ireland were being persecuted by members of different race?

    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.
    I call bullstuff onthis.

    The fact that I am Jewish never entered into my daily life in any way shape or form.

    I was never denied nor granted anything because I was Jewish.

    Please show me where all these groups live every day saying I am _____________ (enter ethnic groups here) first and then living their day accordingly.
