    5.) yep its gonna be around while past our lives and our kids lives
    6.) I agree with this 100% too. Equal rights does help and has proven itself
    7.) Agree and it has not as fast as it should but it has
    4.) That's the big one. Passing down cultural/social bad habits by example. And I agree with you that over compensating doesn't, necessarily, put things back in order.

    I see these science fiction movies/tv shows, where everyone is treated pretty much the same, though there is still animosity where differences exist. Some of our competitive, violent tendencies are almost biological in origin and won't be sufficiently suppressed for many generations.

    Ill stick with rights and the law. If the public join in a legal fashion and help, thats awesome too.
    I believe this is the most important aspect in allowing society to have enough freedom to express itself, even with bad behavior, without being oppressed by gov't.

    The Law is meant to be a blunt tool for correction and to keep society civil, without too much constriction. We seem to do better as a whole, when there's more of a "live and let live" atmosphere than a mob like political scene.

    agreed and it wont, out natural current culture wont let it

    with ignorant teachings and history books, movies and all types of media and propaganda it isnt going anywhere.

    We can only hope to minimize it and on many issues we have, on some we have not but we are making progress thankfully.

    This is why Im always amazed by my parents
    I tell the sroty a lot but i have no idea how they didnt have chips on thier shoulders. There were an interracial couple when it was basically illegal. they lost "friends" family jobs got kicked out of places for it etc etc.

    Hell my uncle lost and eye and was nearly killed simply because he choose to walk home from school a different way.
    My aunt was kidnapped and my grandfather caught the guy and began to beat him up. Luckily some OK cops showed up and ler my uncle (you know the dad of the girl being kidnapped) go. No charges just everybody go your own way.

    thats CRAZY to think about.

    Im cool and collective and happy almost all the time but i cant help but wonder if i grew up in that world . . . . would I be?

    Im so thankful for the role model they bother were and what they taught me. Race was never taught to be an excuse nor was racism ever taught . . obviously since they were an interracial couple lol

    Excellent story of example for others to hear. I actually grew up in a very racist setting back in the 70's south, but it was more like just stupid names and avoidance than active confrontation. My parents though, were not racist at all, which was almost peculiar considering my father was originally a hillbilly. They treated everybody pretty much the same way and never taught me to hate. My friends were the worst source of ignorance, but as I finally matured, none of that stuff I heard stuck.

    It really never did compute for me to dislike anyone for something they have no choice over. Like in school, the worst thing you could call someone back then was gay, and I really never knew why. By my early 20's, in the 1980's, I had a room mate who turned out to be homosexual and was terrified I'd 'out him'. Back then he would've lost his job and possible career, especially being a teacher. I told him there was no reason for me to tell anyone, it was his business.

    It is amazing how much things have changed.

    BTW, very glad to hear your recent health scare wasn't anything too significant.

    I agree but a secondary issue is people dont agree what "live and let live" means

    any government intervention even when they are doing thier job and protecting rights is not live and let live by some people's standards

    yep life is too short for people to judge on such silly premises and its good to know your parents and mine seem to be cut from the same cloth on that front.

    also thanks about the health scare it was quite the scare actually, Easily the longest month of my life.

    I believe it means be tolerant of others rights, freedom to say dumb things and try to live by example. You can't force a society of 300 million individuals to all be alike, they're going to dance to the beat of their own drummers. We need enough law to force equal rights and treatment but enough freedom to reach our individual potential. I wouldn't be the person I am today, without learning from my errors.

    We got real lucky to have such good role models. It's a part of what's wrong today.


    The fear of the ailment is often worse than the reality or at least it doesn't help. I'm getting to that age, where lots of little things are happenin, and I'm just hoping to stave off anything major for awhile longer.

    THis is why i have ZERO issues with anybody thinking same sex marriage is wrong but i do have a problem with those that actively try to stop it

    2.) I like this, this is worded very good and I agree 100%
    3.) working with youths 5-18 I couldnt agree more!
    parenting and models is a HUGE problem today

    4.) haha well i wish you much lick in that department!

    I'm using the word as it is.

    rac·ism [rey-siz-uhm] Show IPA
    noun
    1.
    a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
    2.
    a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
    3.
    hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.
    Minorities are capable of 1 and 3. So, by definition, minorities can be racist. You can't say someone is using the word wrong when they use a definition of it.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    You forgot about #2. Is it so difficult to consider the entire dictionary definition? Really, the dictionary serves as an introduction to the concept, and you can't even manage to understand the entire abstract?

    LMAO wrong again
    #2 doesnt change anything it doesnt NEGATE 1 and 3

    want factual proof of how mentally retarded and factually wrong statement is.

    Here it the definition of blue:

    1: of the color blue
    2a : bluish <the blue haze of tobacco smoke>
    b : discolored by or as if by bruising <blue with cold>
    c : bluish gray <a blue cat>
    3a : low in spirits : melancholy
    b : marked by low spirits : depressing <a blue funk> <things looked blue>
    4: wearing blue
    5: of a woman : learned, intellectual
    6: puritanical
    7a : profane, indecent <blue movie>
    b : off-color, risqué <blue jokes>
    8: of, relating to, or used in blues <a blue song>
    9: tending to support Democrats in a general election <blue states>

    according to your factually wrong theory a car couldn't be blue, why?

    because a car isnt bruises, doesnt have low spirits, isnt music and doesnt support democrats. You know because you wrong think your OPINION of the whole definition must apply LMAO

    Your posts gets destroyed and facts win again lol

    every time you repost and repeat your lie I will point out that its factually wrong lol
