    that's true in my case as well....but only on the matter of violent defense.
    i've never been one to promote or support racial superiority, and i don't imagine i would if i were black in the 50's either.

    Yes, but obviously you're not, because simply mentioning Mein Kampf doesn't apply.

    Actually, a little of both. Good in some respects, bad in others.
    "God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."

    It is hard to be patriotic when your country treats you as less than human.

    Stepping completely away from religion is a tall order. I don't hold it against those who who cling to it.

    Maybe he should have moved to The Soviet Union? See how they treated him.
