    Which is the racist position?

    From a denuded discussion about the prank in NJ calling for all black people to leave, 1069 believes the black people in the store are poor victims, having to suffer the embarrassment of being black and picked on. I think they are amde of sterner stuff and have every right to be offended but are not victims. From that this poll. Please explain yourself...

    ****, I missed the poll. Ahh, found it.

    I think making minorities (in this case Blacks) the "oppressed" or the "victimized" makes racism even more powerful. The more we talk about it, the bigger a problem it becomes. Like Swine Flu.

    And then of course there's the notion that "racism" automatically means Whites victimizing Blacks.

    Re: Which is the racist position?

    I voted "neither".

    But It's actually sort of both.

    Some black persons (and, indeed, people in general), are victims (which ones these are depends on what you define a victim as).

    And some are not.

    As with all things, there are no absolutes.

    Except that one.
    Education.

    Being offended does not make you a victim.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Maybe extremely pissed off, but not a victim (sorry, had to get that stab in).

    Somebody made a stupid racial joke using the Walmart PA. Big deal.


    I hear black comedians on TV making jokes about stupid white people all the time. Apparently that isn't a problem... so, whatever. GTF over it.
