    I just wanted to see if you fell into that category or not.
    You have no idea how prophetic your post was and is.
    I had this very discussion with my lady friend, and one of her group said ONLY...only... white people can be racist.
    That got a huge eye roll for almost everyone present. (8 people).
    Will you work to personally PERPETUATE(30%) the political hate, or work to TERMINATE(70%) it?

    Ya I know and DP is awesome but I live in a world where speaking Truth is no longer a GET OUT OF JAIL CARD when one is charged with a speech crime.

    I tend to get a little twitchy.

    When society throws away the Truth Tellers prepare for the worst, for it is surely coming.
    Open your eyes and your mind and then speak truth..........That is the only way forwards.

    That is the beauty of the internet though.
    It has no real effect on your real life.

    The terms "white power", "black power" or of that type I do not like and also consider racist IF...IF...they are advocating one race being better than another.
    Now, lets see how many focus on the first part and ignore the second part of what i just said?

    but my personal views have nothing to do with anything.
    I thought the billboard was a bit over the top and only made this thread to let each person decide for them self.

    I agree that the billboard, if it was similar to the one posted above, would be over-the-top for my tastes as well, but I think it's more important to figure out what's causing this rather than focusing solely on the recent increase in these types of groups.

    What you saw was a visible reaction to a certain sect of society that has been trying to shove whites into a closet of shame for the past few years. You're seeing greater racial division and you're seeing a response to what those people feel is being unfairly targeted.

    Until we deal with the catalyst, we're not going to be able to deal with the fallout. But, yeah, I think that sign went too far.

    Just wondering what your standards on what is and is not "racist" are.
    Good point as usual.

    Good counter point.

    While both I and the dictionary agree with you on the definition of racism it seems in popular usage today it's been largely redefined to mean oppression by a dominant racial group - i.e. racism today means what "institutionalized racism" used to mean. Leaves us without a word for what racism used to mean - the belief that one race is inherently superior to another.

    It seems that updates are done when the latest satellite image is sufficiently clear. I also noticed that I could tell when the image of my address was captured since I was moving several 16x16x4 blocks from the yard to place them under the piers supporting my mobile home during the process of re-leveling it.

    I consider that sign racist since loving your people appears to exclude those people do not that share your race as being worthy of love. While it did not go so far as to say don't love people of other races it certainly celebrates racial preference.

    I grew up on BLACK PRIDE and WOMEN ARE WONDERFUL and THE FUTURE IS WOMEN so that does not bother me.

    We gotta have some consistency.
