Secondly, they might be white punks. Who knows?
Thirdly, I know that you accept racism and gladly embrace it. I have no time for such racists and bigots
The tragedy is not that things are broken. The tragedy is that things are not mended again. - Alan Paton
Bach is the beginning and end of all music - Max Reger
It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It's us. Only us - Rorschach
First, I was born in Dixie and moved back as soon my husband retired from the military. Dixie solution's drivel does not represent the thinking of the majority of us rebels. I do wish you guys wouldn't quote him/her.
Playing the race card is not evidence of racism. It is pointing out that someone is feeling that they are being treated differently because of their race or pointing out racism within a group. Alas, racism is alive and well in the US. Just look at assumptions by several that most Hispanics are here illegally and therefore criminals in discussions of immigration. Look the many negative references to 'rag-heads' on this forum.
I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.
Playing the race card for selfish/insincere reasons is racist. It is not always "pointing out that someone is feeling that they are being treated differently because of their race or pointing out racism within a group." Perhaps you don't think blacks can use the race card to further their own selfish ends, or because they despise the white folk? My cousins are just one example, and since they're family and in close proximity to my, I can easily reason that there are quite a bit others that do so as well. Racism is alive and well. Not only your views of racism, but the racism you can't see, such as affirmative action and other such "more fair" institutions.
As for illegal immigrants, they ARE breaking the law. How about China? They racist for not allowing undocumented/illegal immigrants from surrounding nations? It's not racism if people want to uphold the law. You think it's racist to be against illegal mimmigration then you'd better think borders and documentation for all nations must cease to exist.
