    It is predictable that many whites will absolute agree that people should stick to their own race, back up their own race, and that other races are the enemy. And that is happening around here. This is old KKK country in very real ways. The only remainder of it was a few goofy guys out in the sticks who maybe put on their costumes once a month in one of their living rooms.

    Now, every day and usually many times, I see old 4X4s driving around flying large confederate flags, and in the more remote and outlying areas it has become an ocean of confederate flags, with a quick increase in "Don't ReNig" bumper stickers.

    Via the Zimmerman-Martin matter, the "left," Democrats and African-American voices declared that racism is politically correct for African-Americans. It is predictable what many whites would agree from their own perspectives too.

    if you are black and proud and talk bad about whites, it is politically correct
    if you are white and proud and talk bad about blacks, you are called a racist

    I fail to see any difference in the two. If one is a racist then both are a racist

    It would depend on what you are talking about. If for example you are talking about the NBPP and what idiots they are as a white man, that is not racist. Same if a black man is talking about the KKK negatively. The problem is at times such a thin line is drawn, and people have such thin skin things that are not racist are considered such.

    I think you are correct. the big problem with the whole racism issue is that it is loaded with 200+ years of baggage. people hold grudges and don't want to let go of the past and people on both sides see bad behavior on the part of a few individuals of the other side and go "ah ha, I told you so". people like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Louis Farrkhan do more to harm race relations than anything else. They should just STFU and go away. If any white dude said publically the things about blacks that Farrakhan has said about whites, he'd be shouted down by both whites and blacks alike.

    Farrakhan is a non-player. Mentioning him at all, or his views, as if they have some sort of significance or influence, is a red herring.

    Then you have an axe to grind with yourself, and not me. My statement stands - because you read something else into it is your problem.
    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.

    of course you are not, because their existance undermines your position. most people tend to not concern themselves with facts that contradict their position

    they don't represent Black-Americans by any stretch of the imagination. They are a fringe of society, with maybe 50,000 official members.

    saying they represent African-Americans is like saying anti-Zionist Hasidim represent Jewish-Americans.

    oh please, Farrakhan is a self-appointed black leader on the same par as Jackson and Sharpton. he has just as much influnce as either of them. which at any level above zeero is far too much.
