    Don't disagree but you said it with "by todays social standards." Hell by todays standards to say blacks live in poverty and need to do something about it gets you called a racist. It has no real meaning for me anymore.
    I agree the word is watered down I said that atleast twice earlier but I dont think the example you just said is anytype of parralle at all, dont know if you meant it to be, maybe it was just an example but they are totally different.

    Someone that gets on radio, of tv or infront of 80000 people and says the whiteman is the devil and inferior and the black man needs to take over and get revenge and stuff like that EARNS you the racist label even if in reality you arent, you are a fraud. I mean even if you are FAKING it, well that kinda makes you one in this case. Just saying

    Everybody has some level of bigotry towards others.

    All of these people have had high moments and low moments.

    Agreed. It's just one human failing, among several.

    Everyone has high and low moments. Most of the guys listed in the poll express their low moments well.

    I hardly think Al Sharpton walks around these days feeling hate and distrust for all white people.

    Maybe I'm missing something but I don't see where it matters to me personally. Give me any race or religion or nationality and I'll give you racists, zealots and self aggrandizing buttheads. Why is it that I need to spend my time trying to define and categorize any of them?

    I'm not black, but I have to ask what is the purpose of the OP? Why is it that a white guy starts a thread asking addressing the intent of selected black leaders? It is my opinion that the question itself is racist.

    Well, the funny thing is there are thousands of whites that are branded as racist just based upon simple comments about people, even when its a comment about an INDIVIDUAL person and that person happens to be black.

    Its strange how quick some folks are to brand whites as racist, but defend the use of the term when applied to blacks because "They don't think their race is superior"

    For example: Calling a SPECIFIC group of girls "nappy headed hoes" does not somehow imply that WHITES are SUPERIOR to BLACKS.... does it?

    Why the double standard?
    "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.

    It's also strange how quick some folks are quick to brand blacks as racist, but object to the use of the term when applied to whites because "liberals and blacks pull the race card to often". Why the double standard?

    The fact is a lot of people don't understand what racism means and they only see it within their partisan lines.

    I dont think sharpton hates whites either, no in general as a whole as you state it. He is knee jerk about white culture but I dont think he hates whites but again im only basing that on the vast amounts of white he consorts with and how they seem to be really close to him :shurg:

    not personally knowing these men makes it tough to say absolutely but the first two dont seem to have enough to deem straight racist.

    the second two, im sold on, they are racist.
    I find it interesting that folks who have a "knee jerk" about black culture (Hip Hop, Basketball, etc) are called racists just because they don't like it.

    Notwithstanding, I can't stand hip-hop music, but I love Darius Rucker's music..... I must be a racist who is a traitor towards the ways of the racist man....

    So, you aren't going to address my point your just going to deflect/divert to some partisan bickering?

    Thanks for conceeding.....
