    Re: Racism in America

    Those who claim blacks are becoming more racist, what evidence would you point to for this?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    I don't recall anybody saying anything about blacks being "more" racist.

    This is primarily due to integration and in the case of whites, working with capable blacks. It is slowed by affirmative action, as often incapable blacks are promoted. Movies also have a lot to do with our perceptions and having more main actor roles played by quality actors who are black helps.

    It is good to be an American.

    Re: Racism in America

    I never made claims about racism from blacks. I made claims of political race bating and false accusations by the Democrat party regarding people and policy they disagree with.

    My mistake then. Technically, isn't accusing people of being racist different than being racist?

    Sorry but I don't read them as racist comments at all. I was looking for the phrase "more racist". Sounded like opinions to me

    They were accusing blacks of becoming 'embolded' or 'more racist' and I'm asking them to discuss why they think that is.

    You know, I'm not sure if it falls under the category of racism or not, but in 2010 it is much safer for a black man to walk down my street than it is for me to walk down MLK Blvd. I would say that's measurable progress, hey? At least, for whitey, it is. But, for my brutha's in da hood, I wouldn't exactly call them "racist" for me being unable to safely walk down MLK, (especially after dark in the summer,) because statistics show that it's twice as dangerous for a black man to walk down that same street.

    Some might say that me even pointing this out is "racist." But how can one discuss the races without commenting on races, thus being labeled racist?

    Fat Tire Friday. If I don't make sense, I apologize in advance.

    I don't feel the need to explain this.
    If you can't see it, you lack attention to detail.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
