    Three days ago I saw a racist sign while driving through Harrison, AR.

    MODS: I did not see a racism topic for this thread so i thought it might go here.

    So, boys and girls, here I am having concluded a business trip to Little Rock and had included a trip further north in AR to see a good friend.
    All well and good and I am just entering the town of Harrison, AR and see this billboard a big as day with a drawn Dad, Mom, and a boy and a girl, all white and in huge letters....White Power Radio. com at the top and at the bottom in slightly smaller font...AltRightTV.com.

    I damn near ran off the road! This was only on the 19th of this month! Making a mental note to take a photo on my way back, I found it was too dangerous to pull over there. However, if someone is skilled at google earth, all you need to do is find the junction of US Hwy 65 and AR Hwy 7. It is on the left side about one mile south of that junction.

    I tried to do a search and other billboards came up, but not this last one that I saw.

    Freedom of speech? Yes. Offensive to me? Yes. Did it make me reach back and and touch the grips of my 1911 .45 Automatic as I drove on by? Yes.

    Now, please put away that broad brush. My friend lives close to there and is very "new age", spiritual, and a kind and loving person to everyone.
    I also stayed in a motel for those "inquiring minds that want to know".
    I do sincerely hope someone gets a pic of this new sign. it is no better than the others, but says they are making a continued effort to widen the divide between the races.
    Will you work to personally PERPETUATE(30%) the political hate, or work to TERMINATE(70%) it?

    I don't know about the paid Google Earth but free Google Earth those street view pictures only update every three or four years.
    "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"

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Just wondering what your standards on what is and is not "racist" are.
    My personal standards for racist, racism, ect are saying one race is better than another.
    I would think that would be self-explanitory.
    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.

    Will you work to personally PERPETUATE(30%) the political hate, or work to TERMINATE(70%) it?

    Well, I know my neighbor told his grandkids to keep track of the playhouse he is building for them when they visit by using Google Earth.
    He told me they can see its stages. Though i know not what version they are using.

    Then we agree.

    Unfortunately though, for many it is NOT "self-explanatory;" as they allege that only one group can be truly racist, and that is the whole set containing "White people."

    I just wanted to see if you fell into that category or not.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    FACTUAL information is always better than 'kinda", and in this case you are 100% correct as to what they are pointing to with the billboard.
