    I wouldn't want to crash the IQ of the courts, so I wouldn't support your tenure.

    So, you do agree with the above quoted statement?
    -------------

    No.
    But it's coming from Ann-my-hair's-on-fire-buy-my-book-Coulter.
    You didn't expect much better, did you?
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    I could hope. Attacking her is taking the easy route. I was hoping people would actually go for substance.

    Re: Do You Agree With This Statement?

    I chose "do not agree".

    But then I read the story, and in context, I am tempted to agree - not that black persons have no volition, but rather that at times they seemingly are portrayed as having none, intentionally or unintentionally, by media stories...

    Your concern for the public welfare is commendable. I'm only following your lead.

    2: So far this thread has been pretty good about avoiding the race baiting, high rhetoric/low content type postings. Thank you for that, let's try and continue with that.

    3: I would appreciate if people could explain there thoughts in more depth towards the comment itself. Thank you in advance if you can do that.
    Out of context, the comment sounds like it could have been made by a racist from an earlier time (or current time, if most of the racists weren't far too careful for such because they know they'll get excoriated for saying such a thing).

    In context, it makes a kind of sense...often it seems to me that black persons (among others) are portrayed as incapable of volition, by various media outlets...
    But at the same time it seems obviously placed to get response from people who don't see the context (this became much clearer once I noted that someone had realized Coulter wrote it...I didn't actually see who the author was).

    Hell, the statement is even it's own paragraph...or something like that...
