    So, nothing to add to the conversation?

    I'll take this as a "I DiavoTheMiavo acknowledge that the definition of a racist changes based upon who it is being applied to".


    Still waiting for you to show where I claim white people have it so damned hard....
    "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.

    And considering you don't know what each individual's life experience encompasses........ What is the purpose of your statement?

    I already said it . . . and you responding to the identification also says something. I am not as comfortable using derogatory terms like you . . . apologies. I was pretty clear in my implication. Yourself and one other person seemed glad to identify yourselves . . . stop asking for what you already received. All you ever do is ask for more and more and more . . . please . . . be self sufficient and figure it out on your own. You cannot expect people to constantly give you a hand up.

    I can only go by your words . . . please re-read what I wrote, you have a serious misunderstanding of what I said. What's the matter, you don't identify any longer?

    Yes, I am sooooo scared on an Internet forum . . . and better yet, I am scared of you because of wit. You remember wit, and your cousins Nit & Half? Anyone, and I repeat, anyone who reads post 472 in this thread knows exactly what I am saying. Some people who may not understand, might be the same people who identify with the following sentence of that post: "What this thread and similar threads seem to prove to me is that there are a certain percentage of members in the forum who feel they are legitimately being subjected to racism from the black population." Go figure. Some folks might question the meaning behind words like, "in every similar thread . . . the same people, every time, find it imperative to inform the rest of us of the discrimination we as white people face everyday," but I am pretty sure most people understand the meaning.

    So, how surprised do you think I was to find out using slurs and cuss words was something that has to do with not only my manliness, but my actual courage as well? I learn something new every friggin day. Oh never mind, at least they admit who they are . . . even if it is subconscious

    Of course.... You said....

    If we are using the definition of racism, as it is applied to white people (Dislike of others of another race based upon their race..... OR (extreme PC mode) ACKNOWLEDGEMENT of difference between races), then yes... I would say there are many people who legitimately have been subjected to racism from the black population.

    Almost any race whether they be black, white, hispanic, asian, naitive american,middle eastern, polynesian, any ****ing thing else I missed........ Has experienced "racism" (as applied the term is defined when applied to whites) from others.


    Why is that so significant to you? Do you care to elaborate the purpose of making this statement?
    "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" "

    No; my point is that they do experience the consequences of "this stuff," and those consequences are both very real and very potent.

    Demonstrably untrue.

    What do you mean? I'm not African American, but it seems to directly affect me every day.

    I do not understand your point.

    See above.

    This seems almost absurdly false. Did you directly experience the American Revolution? Does the American Revolution have some effect on you? The answer is almost surely no to the first, and yes to the second.

    The same principle is at work here. No, African Americans alive today did not experience slavery directly; they do experience the continuing results.

    Now, wait a minute: I didn't see anything about Jamie Foxx saying that he hated anyone.

    No, but I am one of those people who thinks that others ought to be reasonable, and also ought to try to understand a position before they criticize it.

    No, I am saying that the massive widespread crimes of the past, which were never sufficiently redressed, have ongoing effects today, even if they are not directly experienced. Furthermore, those effects are potent, and the ongoing inequality and racial attitudes in our society amply bear out this point.

    Uhh...I am not drunk, and I said something about. I said something about it because that's the reality of the history under discussion. Before you can make any proclamations about the situation that people today face, you must deal responsibly with their history.
