    'Northern liberal elites treated me worse than the segregated South': America is too

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas told a group of college students on Tuesday that race and gender relations are worse now than when he was a kid.

    Speaking at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Florida, Thomas, the second black justice to serve on the court, lamented what he considers a society that is more 'conscious' of racial differences than it was when he grew up in segregated Georgia in the days before — and during — the civil rights era.

    The conservative justice who, among other things, has written opinions supporting limits on Affirmative Action, added that 'the worst things that have been done to me, the worst things that have been said about me, by northern liberal elites, not by the people of Savannah, Georgia.'

    'Northern liberal elites treated me worse than the segregated South': America is too sensitive about race says Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas.

    My comment.

    A racist is someone who looks at people and events thru racial eyes. So-called "liberals" who analyze every word, event and statement in racial context are the worst racists in the country at this time. Most racist messages on this forum are posted by those who identity their lean as liberal or progressive, although not exclusively.

    For example many self defined liberals and progressives foremost definite President Obama as "the black president," - that his foremost definition to THEM is his race. Therefore, since that is what is MOST important to them they assume is most important to everyone else. Therefore, those who oppose his actions and policies must be because of Obama's race - because they assume everyone shares their racial-measuring of people.

    That's not the definition of "racist."

    [rey-sist]

    a person who believes in racism, the doctrine that a certain human race is superior to any or all others.


    rac·ism
    [rey-siz-uhm]
    noun
    1.
    a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
    2.
    a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
    3.

    I agree there is a difference between racism and racialism, but democrats are more racist as a whole. They are the ones that cannot be colorblind, and insist on quota systems. The use of a quota system for example implies that blacks cannot compete on an equal playing field, and that makes it a racist idea.

    These types of arguments on the right imply that Blacks and other minorities are a bunch of idiots. Otherwise why would the vast, vast, vast majority of them always vote Democrat? If the Democrats are the real racists then obviously minorities are stupid right? Perhaps the Democrats are not the racist party after all. I don't think the Republican Party is either, but there sure as hell is a lot more confederate flag waving rednecks voting Republican than Democrat.

    I suspect that those northerners hate Thomas for what he believes and what he does, not for the color of his skin.

    People tend to vote what they perceive to be in their own best interest.

    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    What an over extension of the argument. The Democrats are the ones that perpetuate poverty, rather than reforming the programs to enable people to rise out of poverty. Many minorities have similar base values as the Republican party but feel that that GOP doesn't care about them due to the GOP's marginalizing of their situation in life as well as the Democrat's painting the GOP as evil and hateful toward minorities. This has been debated here hundreds of times, and will not be agreed upon by either of us in a way that would put it to bed tonight.
