    But then again, if she was in the clan..then the whole brain thing never existed in that family.

    Generally those who support the KKK have neither knowledge base nor intelligence enough to think of something like that.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    There is no right to not be offended. I would much rather be offended than silence freedom of speech.

    I'll give you insensitive...but destructive? You don't think that's just slight hyperbole?

    Agreed

    The problem is you are speaking in untrue blanket terms that simply do not apply.
    Where. I try to avoid that so if I did I misrepresented my opinion.

    This thread for instance... 9 pages? To much to search through? No one has mad such an asinine comment
    I never said they made that comment in this thread. I said they have made the comment on this forum.

    Why fight that statement anyway? I mean, are you defending friends or something?

    I never said anything about a right to be offended. What are you talking about here?

    Her name is "Black"? That's too funny.
    actually most branches of the KKK fit the description of political organizations these days. This is mainly due to them being rightfully dragged through the legal ringer for incidences like the Micheal Donald case.

    I think demeaning other people because of a physical characteristic is destructive. Yes.

    Al Qaeda may one day be light on terrorism, too. I don't know if that means the people who would join that organization would become nice guys w/o a killing and hateful philosophy, even if they are no longer caught murdering innocents on behalf of some cause.

    dude, you're citing some story about a dumb-**** in west Virginia who was seemingly universally ostracized for her decision.

    Nothing is being promoted here, besides your obvious over reaction to it
