    Stirring words from you and Buck, there. Sounds like a crusade. I agree that we should not accept racism in social constructs. I seriously doubt you can manage to change the content of the human heart.

    Great.

    Sounds like we're on the same page.

    I've been fighting this battle for a long time, and I don't plan on quitting until they put me in the ground.

    Ignoring racism will not make it go away.

    I agree that we can't put hearts in those who never had one, but we can stop them from harming others.

    Good luck with that. "The battle" was won 150 years ago. Racists are fewer and fewer and have been effectively marginalized by society. Most of us recognize bigots, realize there's absolutely nothing we can do to change what's in their hearts, roll our eyes and go on -- determined to set good examples ourselves.

    Edit: I assume you are outraged​ at Trayvon Martin calling Zimmerman a creepy-assed cracker? No? I thought not.

    Oh! And outraged that what'shername didn't perceive Creepy-assed Cracker as racist, too? No? I thought not.

    Oh! And outraged that black sports figures and entertainers make their living calling other blacks Niggers? No? Selectively outraged, I guess.

    Some people see racism everywhere. Know why? They're looking out of racist eyes
    That quote makes no sense, racists tend to be blind to racism.
    Those who are most sensitive to the ugliness of the racist mind are those who have empathy towards the victims or are on the receiving end of racism themselves...

    This from someone who describes pre-civil war reenactments of subservient slaves during white southern weddings as being "totally harmless".
    We understand who is part of the problem here and who is part of the solution.
    If you truly believe that the problem of racism was "solved 150 years ago you need to pick up a modern American history book.
    As I said those who still harbor racist sentiments are most blind to the problem of modern racism.

    No, you don't. You're just so prejudiced yourself you can't see the forest for the trees. And I'm not interested in being politically correct because I'm not running for office.

    Get over it. It was 150 years ago. Blacks who can't let it go live in the ghettos all of their lives and blame crackers. Blacks who live in today's world get terrific educations, advanced degrees and become professionals who give back to their old communities stuck in a time warp.

    Duly noted . You believe that racism was solved with the emancipation of the slaves.
    Thank you for your self indicting candor and self incriminating ignorance of American history.

    I wasn't speaking of a lack of heart. I was speaking of the propensity for humans to do things that aren't good, and that includes various unfounded prejudices. It's starting to sound like you're on a crusade to eliminate the offensive. Good luck with that.
