    When it becomes racism (and wrong) is when that belief turns to the belief that some races are superior or inferior and should be treated differently.

    Black men soap their hands before they get them wet and white men wet their hands before they soap them. Never could figure that one out.

    I think it's more because there are some of us who have spent more time out in the real world than others.

    The where they live sheltered lives and don't understand the realities of what actually goes on in the world and how people interact.

    jr602 might be mr. PC today and all tolerant and demanding diversity, everybody love everybody, but if a black man stole his wallet, or raped his daughter he wouldn't be quite so PC any longer.

    Some of us are expereienced enough to know that we're all different because of race, creed, color, gender, religion and national origin and therefore develop preconcieved notions based upon those differences. Anyone that says they don't, is either a liar, stupid, or lives in a sterile environment in their home and never go outside.

    If they, or anyone else, wants to try to refute science with superstition, we will pick on them.

    and that counts for all of us, not just the "libbos".

    Last time I checked, Catholics are Christians.

    Are you justas eager to pick on Black Christians who ignore scientific fact and tel us that whites are inferiror to blacks? Something tells me you don't. But, I'm just guessing.


    that the modern science of genetics is wrong about there being more variation between individuals than between the races.
    You've enver mingled outside your race, have you? Please, don't claim thatyou ahve all these black, red, yellow and brown friends, because if you did, you wouldn't have made that statement.

    So, the answer to my question is yes.

    The answer is yes. Don't listen to those "somethings" that tell you things, they just might be the voices in your head.

    Our town would be a ghost town were everyone but the whites to leave. I am a member of a minority group, at least here. Nevertheless, the assertion that if I had "mingled outside my race", I would not have said, "If they, or anyone else, wants to try to refute science with superstition, we will pick on them.

    and that counts for all of us, not just the "libbos"."

    sorry, but your own last statement makes no sense at all.

    Well - after a few days of this poll going our current % return is
    78% think YES - it's wrong
    21% think NO - it's not wrong
    0% think there's no such thing

    On the other forum
    72% think YES
    25% think NO
    2.3% (just one person) thinks there's no such thing
