    Re: Racist or not Racist.

    Of course you can't say that "every black person is homophobic", nevertheless I find that the black religious establishment, the linchpin of the black civil rights movement, is behaving pretty much identically to the white evangelical religious establishment regarding gay rights issues.

    And seriously, black racism is vicious. White's generally hide their racism because they're embarrassed of it (or at least don't want to be socially censured for it) but I've seen little hesitation among the black community to be quite explicit with their racism, usually framing it as a criticism of some historical injustice.

    I also resent that when blacks organize along race lines it's considered normal but when white's do it it's a big deal.

    There's plenty of black only gangs that are overtly hostile towards white people. They're considered normal urban gangs.

    If white's form a white only gang that's overtly hostile towards black people they're a "hate group".

    I'm not defending white power skinheads or the Klan, however, I'd like to see black race groups treated the same as white race groups.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    they weren't necessarily responsible for it passing, but ethnic-minorities were notable in their overwhelming support of it.

    I don't think it was so much that they were the only ones responsible, but they went majority against it and many people seemed to feel betrayed. I suppose because they expected black people to actually support equal rights for a minority or because of the overwhelming vote for democrats who are seen as at the more gay friendly party of the two we're stuck with.

    Did you see the cartoon of Obama portrayed as a lawn jockey with giant lips, sputtering sentence fragments, under the heading, "House Nigger?"

    Sort of like this one:

    Yeah, that's really uncomplimentary to Zira. She was never a bigot.

    Ergo, to claim that white people have not been compared to monkeys is simply a false statement.

    By your own admission.

    Re: Racist or not Racist.

    I think what every one is forgetting is that the Left is the self-proclaimed judge of what is racist and what isn't.

    Thus, it's racist to legimiately compare an incompetent disaster of a president to a successful primate, if that president has the middle name Hussein.

    It's not racist to say that black people aren't good enough to succeed on their own merits, so the government has to mandate racial quotas and set asides, known as Affirmative Action and other policies, the deny equally qualified white people an equal opportunity for employment.

    Just ask any Lefty.

    White people as a race have not been compared to monkeys. There have been individuals who are white who were compared to monkeys. There is a difference between the two, don't be obtuse.

    Complete b.s.

    Humans (all of em) have been compared to apes, monkeys, chimps what have you since damn near forever. Kids are routinely called monkeys by parents, grandparents, etc. Chimps are our closest relative for Gods sake.
