    Do you deny that?
    For the Third time....

    Yes..


    Now it is your job to prove it beyond just stating it.... Joe Dirt's dad.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Aw, did your feelings get hurt when someone called you a cracker? Poor baby.

    At least that word isn't used to dehumanize you like the n-word is to black people.

    What? Did you quote the right post?

    Did you know that white people were also slaves Eco? Slavery isn't exclusive to "minorities." These people are only "minorities" in certain countries. In other countries, white people are the minorities.

    The success of it's implementation might, but the underlying idea must exist to even get to that point.

    No... My feeling did not get hurt from someone calling me a cracker.

    And yes, the use of the term has the EXACT SAME MEANING as the use of the word nigger.

    For example, in Saddam's Iraq the minority was capable a 'religionism' (for lack of a better term in context) due to institutional power despite being a minority.

    But let's keep context. In the US, only a white's words of racial bigotry carry societal implications for those derided.

    Yes. This is exactly what I'm implying. [eyerolls into the void]

    This is silly.
    No. He's arguing that the only definition of racism that matters is that which is in the dictionary.

    And don't take things to their absurd extremes.

    Without getting to that point, it's common bigotry. It only becomes an ism when the state, 'the man', has got ones back.

    Racism is the belief that other races are inferior to yours, policies based on that and if discrimination and prejudice towards others is based on racist views.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    is there a difference in treatment between Paula Deen, and state Rep. Ryan Winkler......?
