    Then what are you even talking about?

    It's as if you're totally changing the topic from my initial statement.

    My message is that people need to be treated fairly. If a white man would be lambasted for saying/doing the same racial things that Al does, it's wrong and it needs to stop.

    I'm not going to overlook Al's racism, all while trying to make certain white people look like racists.

    People need to be judged equally, imo.
    Wait, if these white men and Al Sharpton are saying the same things, then why are you calling Sharpton a racist and saying we should not call the white men racists?

    My point is this. Racial prejudice and stereotyping, problematic though they are, are not the same thing as racism.
    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.

    So you seem to be implying that if a white man were to get pissed at the racial hypocrisy and the blind eyes, that he's suffering from "angry white man syndrome??

    How about "angry black man syndrome," like Al Sharpton?

    What about it? "Angry white man" syndrome usually has nothing to do with hypocrisy or anger at anything legitimate, but rather based on ignorance. The same goes for angry black man syndrome.

    You still have not shown how Sharpton is a racist. Hint: look at definitions of the word, then try and apply it.

    Well, one of the dictionary definitions of racism is "racial prejudice".

    Earlier I said if the white man did the same as Al, but demonized black people, like Al does white people.

    If a white man said that America is infested with hateful black people, guess who gets called a racist? Yet if Jesse or Al say the same about white people, well, we'll just sweep that under the rug because that's acceptable.

    What white man is saying things like Al Sharpton? Point to an example? Or are you assuming?

    I haven't seen that definition, but if that were the case about 99% of the non-blind population would be racists.
