It means that all too often, people make overall judgements with the information they have...but the information they're working with is much less than is necessary to make that judgement...and is far less information than those people think is necessary.

    And from a lifetime of experience in the South, from the experience of having been raised as a racist to unlearning the same, I know better than most whites just how prevalent, just how deeply rooted it is. And anyone, absolutely anyone who claims that racism by blacks is anywhere close to that by whites is speaking from a position of utter ignorance.

    Why? You would agree that there's racism in all cultures and all nations, right? Of course you would. But there's a common thread in all such situations: the racism by the more powerful in a culture is always, always more egregious than the racism by the less powerful. I can give you example after example of this all over the planet. The more powerful race (or ethnicity or religion) in a culture always, always, ALWAYS commits more egregious acts of racism, much more often, than what is committed by the less powerful race.

    That, sir, is reality. You can try to deny it if you like, but you have far less first-hand knowledge of racism in America than you seem to believe.
    No. You are still wrong. Racism is racism. There is no difference between a white person who is racist, a black person. a hispanic or anyone else. Racism is racism. You can think only white racism matters, but you are wrong.

    In other words, the racism - okay, ethnicism, but it's really the same thing - of the Nazis against the Jews was no worse than the racism of the Jews against the non-Jews.

    And the racism of Americans of European descent against the Native Americans was no worse than the racism of the Native Americans against the Americans of European descent.

    And the racism of the Han Chinese against the Tibetans is no worse than that of the Tibetans against the Han Chinese.

    I can go on all day with such examples. In every case, it's the more powerful against the less powerful - always has been, always will be. Your claim that one side is no worse than the other is nothing more than a false equivalence, an attempt to pretend the molehill of racism by one side justifies the mountain of racism by the other side.

How anyone can think that's somehow "business as usual" is beyond me.
    You don't think maybe it has to do with the kind of people Obama wants to nominate do you? It has to be all one sided right?

    Some dads would...but only if they felt outnumbered.
    I don't get what that has to do with what was being discussed.

    So...do you really, truly think that Obama was nominating people SO far to the wingnut left that it justified nearly half of ALL filibusters in all of American history? Do you really?

    LOL.. Yeah, and Obama has kept flushing it further down.
