    Thread is a reach ... the entrepreneur is acting classless and tasteless but to say they are a racist when they are in fact unidentified at this point is a huge reach Mrs. PF. Especially by you who always goes the extra mile to get the facts. The guy is a piece of crap by normal decency standards but for all we know he or she could be black also.

    Remember the Movie they made showing GW Bush being asassinated while he was still in office, The Loon Community called it "freedom" and "artistic"

    When I was younger we lumped them into the category of 'stoners' ... but now with the internet they are much dumber and way more dangerous - cops don't get paid enough to deal with these idiots.

    There will always be racism as long as people look different and some occupy this earth with damaged brains. That is just a fact of life.

    Growing up in the 50's and 60's, there is certainly a small fraction of racism now as compare to then. Let's not keep giving total and complete evil idiots the attention that they crave.

    That's all true, but let's also not be satisfied that we've attained the "right" level of racism or pretend that racism isn't an issue anymore.

    I think the rise of the Tea Party is the rise of whites as a minority. They (we) of course are not yet a minority, but it's not uncommon for even intelligent conservatives to lament the low birth rates of Europeans (which is a racist lamentation), to identify Obama as a foreigner (Kenyan, Muslim, nonAmerican) despite massive evidence to the contrary, and to pass laws or repeal laws to the detriment of nonwhites and other minorities. These Trayvon Martin targets are simply a manifestation of the rise of the white right in America, and if we look at history, there is no group with a more horrific and violent legacy than the white right, from slavery, to Colonialism, to Fascism, to Nazi-ism.

    Of course the rise of Tea PArty politicians like Allen West and Mia show that the Tea Party focus on smaller government and not left win fantasies about race.

    How has allen west "risen"? He couldn't win anything outside of his district of mental midgets. If he ever was foolish enough to run for statewide- not to mention national - office, he would be sent packing by any normal human candidate. He's a mindless animal posing as a person. He has found his small pond to swim in and should stay there.

    You can't be serious about that sociopath.

    Darryl, is it true what leaks out every so often that in all the large prisons Racism Rules and prisoners form little groups of "their own kind" I saw this on TV the other night on a program about the Pelican Bay Prison?
