    Breaking my own statement of dropping this. There was no analogy. The KKK isn't well known for their persecution of Christians, are they? They weren't set up to promote non-Catholic ideals and oppose Catholicism.

    You mean like this black business woman? (She's either in the heroin distribution business of she has one hell of an addiction). And no doubt the white privileged are paying for her toddler's day care.

    By the way, go to any mixed neighborhood and stand on the street corner for a few minutes and chances are good you with see a non-black get sucker-punched by a black teenager (or early 20s) "playing" the knockout game. And it's free of charge...unless you happen to be the victim.

    Go to one? Please, I live in one and have never seen anything like that. You would probably wet your panties if you came in my neighborhood yet it's mostly just hardworking families just trying to live.

    No where in the first comment was anything being said about whites, yet someone chose to respond without really considering what was said...... It is hogwash, really.
    The whole damned poll subject and resulting comments, of which this is PAGE 26 is about WHITE Privilege. What the hell are you talking about upsidedownguy?

    No I was talking about this black guy who saved a car full of children some white women drove into a river.
