    AA doesn't necessarily have to be dividing. In some cases it has been uniting in that it has brought together people who would otherwise not have been together in the first place, that become friends.

    What has been dividing is some Republican politicians and political commentators who have deliberately used AA, to exploit the racist tendencies in some whites. That has been the major source of the divide.

    Yes, the word "Negro" - the one I copied from your post.

    Let's not forget the Congressional Black Caucus. Even the politicians draw lines.

    Either we're a society of equals without color, or we're a society of different races. We can't have it both ways.

    What? You can't be serious.

    Millions of Jews were exterminated for being inferior 70 short years ago. At the same time, the American government was rounding up Americans of Asian descent, stealing all of their worldly belongings - including their names - and sending them to work camps.

    What an extremely disingenuous comment.

    You are trying to pretend the word is racist, it is the meaning of Bundy's words when comined into a sentence and their meanings. As Rush says, words have meanings.

    So if "Negro" isn't a racist word, then what was your point in using it in that post?

    I am not going back and looking for it, the sum of what he said is racist, not a single word. Try again.

    That is called a phrase not a single word. Were you focusing on the word so you could pretend anyone who uses it is a racist? thus making Bundy no more racist than anyone else that uses it?
