    No you do not dislike the hypocricy. A poster who is a major race baiter here makes a thread claiming some one else is racist(pay attention to that, it's important), and do you call him out for hypocricy? No, you go after those who do actually do what you are now claiming every one should do.

    Answer: It doesn't.
    Why doesn't it? Explain....
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Re: Is the Rev. Al Sharpton a racist?

    Let's see - -during the fabricated Tawana Brawly fiasco, he said "We’re building a movement. This is the perfect issue. Because you’ve got whites on blacks. That’s an easy way to stir up all the deprived people, who would want to believe and who would believe—and all [you’ve] got to do is convince them—that all white people are bad. Then you’ve got a movement."

    thus taking on a role as provocateur for the express purpose of whipping up racial hatred.

    During the case of a white female jogger who WAS raped, he supported the black rapists most vehemently, claiming they were actually the victims of a racist justice system.

    During the antisemitic crown heights riots, he stirred up hatred against Jews challenging the "diamond merchants" to “pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house” to settle the score after stirring up his followers to go on a rampage screaming "Jew, Jew!", he then defended them by saying "We must not reprimand our children for outrage" a few years later he organized an attack on a Jewish-owned business calling them "crackers" and saying "Keep [going] right on past Freddy’s, he’s one of the greedy Jew bastards killing our [black] people. Don’t give the Jew a dime"

    Is he a racist? Not only is he a racist, but he is intentionally stirring up his followers to follow suit.

    which is of course, an example of hypocrisy. to only call out liberal racists & race-baiters, but lend a blind eye to Conservatives who do it, is pathetic hypocrisy.

    Answer: It doesn't.

    Got it yet? You continue to define racist as whether or not a white person would be called racist for saying the same thing. That's not the definition of racist. If you want to know if Sharpton is a racist, you go to the dictionary, find the definition of racism and see if it applies to him. You don't find out by asking whether or not people would call a white man racist for saying the same thing.
    I disagree.

    If Al Sharpton said the white media is evil and isn't deemed a racist, while a white man says the black media is evil and is deemed a racist, you know there's a problem.

    You are probably right, but we cannot change the way the population thinks from this little internet message board. You are ranting and fuming about things we (you and I) have no control over except for ourselves. That is the best we can do.

    I don't get your line of reasoning.

    I don't care who the OP is; I'm focused on the issue at hand.

    You seem to be saying that ANYONE who accuses/questions/muses on the basis of race is a race-baiter, INCLUDING those who call out those people.

    Actually, this sort of litmus test gets one much closer to the truth than the politically correct denials of those determined to defend him.

    You can't disagree because what I have stated is a fact.

    1. Racism has a definition.
    2. That definition is not, "If a white man said it, it would be racist."

    The end. Jesus ****ing Christ.

    You just contradicted yourself in two lines. Congrats.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
