    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    "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"

What is it about a black guy graduating from a top university that makes some whites question whether he got there on his own or not? I guess when you see a black guy achieve more than you in life he couldn't have possibly done on it on his own.

    I'm in the group that you stereotyped. America is definitely not as racist as it once was.

    No, it might have been at one time but the word has taken on many different meanings since it's first definition.

    Re: Racism in America

    I think America is becoming more racist. More Democrats are using the race card and throwing race into every single policy that they disagree with. There is a larger racial and political divide in the country and it's due to the tactics and criticisms that the Democrat party makes.

    How about this for a poll option (the one I would have voted for): "America is less racist now than in the past, and racism is steadily lessening. However, as racism wanes, those who hold to their racist views become more vocal."

    Re: Racism in America

    Only white folks can be racist's. Or haven't y'all heard?

    Here in America, we're even racist about who gets to be racist.
