    Do I need to make a clever reference to your avatar about the strawman you just made, or do you want to have a silent understanding over it?
    Did you or did you not say in that white privilege thread that white people are DISadvantaged compared to black people? Your posts don't exist in a vacuum, you know.

    You are right about that. But there are a lot of black posters here also making racist comments towards the Obama's because of their race.

    In very many ways they are. In some ways, whites have the advantage. Overall, I think in many aspects there is a clear disadvantage to being a white male - at least any aspect concerning government. Now in social circles, it probably gets evened up. That doesn't change the fact that being a minority gets many luxuries afforded to you.

    I still stand by what I said though - to insinuate that I'm a racist based on acknowledgement that being a minority in America carries distinct privilege in many ways is a massive strawman.

    Also, whether threatening to kill someone is crime or not is vague and varies. For instance, many people threaten bodily harm to athletes and their families all the time. You never hear of any of those people being prosecuted.
    It is against the friggin' law to threaten to kill the President. A specific Federal Law. There's nothing vague about it. Stick to tea party stuff, and leave the law to people who know what they are talking about.
