    If I accept, won’t you see me as a racist? Won’t it be a scary political responsibility for me to assume?

    After your following statement, don’t you want people to accept your view about NAACP being correct?

    Well, how do they define "black people", or "colored people", or whoever they claim to represent?

    Depending on the method of definition, they may or may not represent some "white people".

    I'm 99% sure there's a white person out there whose great-great-something-mother was a slave raped by her owner.

    Should the NAACP not rep them cause' they have white skin? What's the purpose of the NAACP, anyway?


    Then, when you encounter some opinion disagreeing with yours, instead of refuting with reason, you judge his opinion as “wall of rant”, and judge him as a person being politically incorrect. As to reason and logic, they are totally absent in your judgement.

    Don't you think that you have been doing something that you don't want me to do?

    I believe I am more entitled than you to say the following:

    What the hell are you talking about?

    It is apparent that you have made multiple assumptions about me, most incorrect.

    I was in no way attempting to judge you.
    I was simply commenting on what appeared to me as your obvious dislike of the NAACP.
    I had no real response to your statements, as most were outside my realm of knowledge, and which appeared to contain a certain amount of anger - so I simply acknowledged the obvious.

    Nope, as I was not aware any “judging” was taking place.

    Nope, see above. And why in the hell would your statements cause me to think you are racist?

    I never said they were correct…Where the hell did you get that idea?

    In fact, that statement was intended to be negative towards them.

    I think you may be projecting your apparent bias against the NAACP onto my statement, assuming I support them, and responding to that instead of what I was really attempting to say.

    Your opinion WAS a “wall of rant”. Your dislike and anger towards the NAACP were obvious.
    That it was and is a “wall of rant” was in no way intended as a negative statement.
    Rants can be fun.

    I chose to replace the text with the “wall of rant” statement mainly to prevent repeating what had already been said (and thus using up page space), but also as a tongue-in-cheek statement, intended to be vaguely humorous.

    Thank you for returning me a neutral comment. However, I am still unable to remove the following feeling from some of your previous comments about NAACP:
    1. You tried to present to people that NAACP has no racial bias; helping the white to get fairness in the society is one of its agendas,
    2. Nobody can successfully define people with color, therefore NAACP will not judge people with color content.

    Honestly, I have no reason to dislike NAACP until it shows to the society that it is escorting racial discrimination in the name of anti-racial discrimination. Did you ever hear of any criticism from it against those racial slurs that I quoted in the long long message? On the other hand, I did see high pressure from it when it feels some white in the Tea Party saying something it feels uncomfortable (but far less severe than "killing")?

    Incorrect.

    I was trying to say that if they truly represented "colored people", that would include everyone.

    My understanding is that they do not represent everyone.

    This may indicate racial bias, not the lack thereof.

    Not sure I understand what you're getting at here.

    I don't really pay attention to anything the NAACP says, so no, I never did hear.

    Also, not entirely sure what's you're getting at here.

    How about you take your own advice and get the hell over yourself?

    You are free to keep using the term colored and I am free to think you just may be a racist ass for doing so. OK? OK!

    I do have a feeling that the word "color" should have been applied to whites for their identification. From the point of view of physics, white color has the most chromatic components in the optical spectrum. Applying such word to non white does aggitate a feeling of inaccuracy, irritation is understandable. However, for really accurate purpose, white may have to be called "color-ful", but non white should be "color-less", "color-less-less", "color-less-less-less"...dependiing on how many chromatic components one is willing to be found showing or not showing.

    The profound influence asserted by NAACP in today's American politics has not caused your attention but you show such enthusiasm in taking part in political debate? I do feel lost here. Well, this is your personal choice and nobody can say a damn.

    I've heard a few things the NAACP has said, but not enough to have any idea when they stand for/are.

    How does my not paying attention to an entity preclude my ability to participate in a debate?

    For what? Asserting that the leading organization for the advancement of colored people refers to its members as colored people and that I shall too refer to them as colored people? What's to get over?

    You are free to keep using the term colored
    The 1st amendment thanks you.

    and I am free to think you just may be a racist ass for doing so. OK? OK!
    Becauise I use the same term that they do? How is that racist?
    Doesn't that make everone associated with the NAACP a racist, too?
