    Agreed, because the dark scares us. In the light of day, we are very aware of our surrounding, as we can see for long distances in any direction if the ground is flat and no obstacles are present. But, absent any light, we are far more helpless and no longer have control of our safety.

    Embracing the light and fearing the dark is a natural human response and trying to portray as racist that which we naturally feel is silly.

    Not to mention the "black riders".
    I figured it would be understood that I was referencing the main non-monstrosity humanoid races - green skins are not among them (ohh crap.. is it racist that I called them green skins?)

    See....thats just typical of black folk. Dood was the governor of an entire city and a successful mining business...and based on the fact that he didnt drive a low (looooooow) rider like Lukes speeder with hydraulics and a sweet base system, and he wears jerri curls, you want to make the successful black man out to be a pimp. And he sold out to the man...which makes him a tom to boot.

    I don't think this thread went how Canell wanted.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    No, they don't. They encourage people to vote which they might not do if the poll wasn't anonymous.

    Given your history of polls/threads on race, some bashing on PC stances and complaining about how nobody likes racists.
