    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?

    I asked Darryl that because I knew he was in Corrections, I really didn't know if it was true or not, I don't believe anything I see on TV all their sh!t is usually twisted to reflect their own views from Fox, National Geographic right down to the Democrat Left Wing MSNBC.

    Folks for the most part gather together by race, gangs or even neighbourhoods.. everyone has an angle and with all that free time on their hands, they bind together to watch each other's back..

    California is known for its blacks, whites, mexican and a whole bunch of other gangs...

    Gangs are somewhat it somewhat functional, for a lot of reasons you can watch a specific group of inmates and learn a lot about what they are up to and often get cues of something that is going to step off.. as opposed to a homogenized group of people, where it is difficult to watch; who is on the outside, who is on the inside and who is there is who is leaving.

    When the Latin Kings broke bad in the NE, we had our eyes on the ringleaders and everytime a new person was detained he would send the higher ups in the facility a letter to announce their arrival etc. Usually it was to the leaders, so we were able to easily identify who was in power in that notorious gang. We were able to use this gang intelligence to work with the local federal prosecutors in subsequent RICO cases.

    Prisoners can be very institution bright.. for the most part they have nothing to do except watch CO's and figure out how to get over..

    Well there is no "right" level of racism and there will never be.

    And, let's not be accepting of those who exploit racism for their personal, or political gain.

    I agree, but I think a lot of people who make the point you did (that racist will always exist) would disagree.


    If we apply that kind of standard on all issues involving rights, most politicians and prominent leaders of advocacy groups -- both left and right -- would be out. Maybe that would be a good thing, though...

    A Nation of Candor? by Harry Stein - City Journal

    While we're busy calling eachother a racist, nobody's addressing what's truly going on in the streets and in these people's lives, and when someone tries to they're guilty of covering up the 'real issue', which is of course 'racism'.

    An anonymous ex-gangsta rapper recently came forward with some news: the rappers were offered the opportunity to invest in....wait for it......
    The Prison Industry! So black celebrities are enticed to glorify being a gangsta to their audience, namely, young black kids! People don't have those kinds of conversations do they Eric Holder?

    If a Minority (mexican, black, mongolian) does anything wrong and you mention it "You Are A Racist" if a minority robs a bank, kills three children in the bank and then rapes a 97 year old women on the way out of the bank and a News Paper Reports It "the slobberers and ass kissers of minority's" Blame The News Paper., it is done on this forum daily.

    I call it "the shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh syndrome"

    and we're back to harry the victim :rolleyes:

    No, harry, when the only people one mentions doing something wrong are minorities, you're probably a racist. But you're right, that is done on this forum daily... by one racist (and islamophobic) poster...
