    It was a typo. "Defines" not "definite."

    If you think there aren't people that hate Obama because he is black you are living in a dream world. I don't think the overall majority are racist but there are some. And there are some racists that are for blacks and against whites as well.

    Personally in today's time, I think it is more acceptable for blacks to be against whites than it is for whites to be against blacks. That's not a good thing, only what I have seen.
    What about people who support him because he's black? Is that equally racism?

    And then there are those on this thread ("liberal/progressive") arguing that since there is no claiming of racial inferiority, it isn't racism at all.

    Yes, there is racism in the country. No, I do not think it is 1/10th what the media and press try to make it to be.

    They are talking about two provisions of the civil rights act, not the entire thing.

    Wow! That changes everything! Because we all know if your employee discriminates you against the basis of race that is totally a "equal playing field"

    The words equal playing field are your words not mine.

    What I think Thomas is saying that I agree with is the hyper-sensitivity about racism has not been beneficial as much as it has been harmful.

    Too many people believe that if they can show they are in some victim role they should get something out of it, that others somehow owe them or that such excuses - even if accurate - are worth anything.

    There are other topics Republicans play the hyper sensitive game - and BOTH parties do it about women. I think doing so is not helpful, and it distracts from REAL instances of racism and bigotries.
    I'm no lover of the Democratic party either, which has nothing to do with the thread topic really. I was just explaining my personal stance of racism and bigotry and why I am more accepting of one type vs another. Do with it what you will. Suggesting somehow that minding my manners is the best way out of inequality is very .... telling.

    While I totally, even vehemently, disagree with him in terms of commercial property owner's rights, to claim he wants to repeal the Civil Rights Act is a lie. He wants part of it repealed. There laws Obama wants changed. Therefore I could post the Obama wants the USC repealed. Equally false. But it is a Democrat race-baiting talking point and it is your role to repeat it - so carry on.
