Racism is defined as the belief that those of a certain race are superior to those of another race simply by virtue of their race.
Many things that are commonly called racist don't fit that definition.
Yes 96% of the black vote going to the Six Trillion Dollar Man is clearly racism at it's core. More importantly, it's extremely naive and short-sided based on Obama's inability to govern or address the national debt.
Under Obama, the national debt has increased from $10.6 trillion to $16.7 trillion, an increase of 57% in just 4 years. More than any other President in history!
Did somebody get obnubilated? Is obnubilation covered under Medicare, Part O...?
cait48 I'll reference Orville Faubus, Ross Barnett, George Wallace, Strom Thurmond,
and Jesse Helms for you to make it right. I'm the former grandson of a almost
90 year old White/Choctaw Dixiecrat who went GOP with Reagan. He is
the patriarch from "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" wrecking his family with Southern
Patriarchy in style. His culture didn't value my late mother's college education
and it upended their narrow mindedness which is why southerners pretty
much always assail intellectuals as the people who upset their apple carts
of keeping things the same much as the 1960's and Civil Rights did.
Look at how they treated Willaim Faulkner and William Fulbright not
to forget Jimmy Carter. They like locked in step standard bearers
who fight to keep their way of life alive at the expense of all of us.
This is the fight occurring as we speak in DC and Cyberspace.
They are trying to rewrite history that they've lost and we should not
if you're not racist and you don't like being associated with historic racist attitudes
do something about the people responsible for giving good conservatives a bad
name. Don't blame the target of said bad behavior for speaking openly about
these bad people. Fifty years ago Good Democrats passed the Civil Rights Act
and Voting Rights Act and pushed the bad Democrats or Dixiecrats out. Between
1967 and 1982 or between George Wallace, Richard Nixon, and Ronald Reagan
these racist Dixiecrats became Republicans. This was crazy to witness as I grew
up in Louisiana and Mississippi from the early 1970's to the early 1980's.
The GOP was a carpetbagger party during Civil War Reconstruction and for
these southerners to go GOP was like watching a vampire go willingly
into the sunlight. They did so because good Democrats told them to leave
and they became right wing Republicans. I'm 42 years old and I witnessed
this firsthand in Moss Bluff, Louisiana between the 1976 and 1980 presidential
elections. Witnessed history trumps gop mythology and claims of reverse
I am stunned to see how so many posters on this forum disclaim any racism, but then make derogatory generalizations about persons who aren't white.
See these examples of racist thinking posted above: "a stupid and increasingly 'brown' America" "who gives a flying fig for your stupid 150 year old indian gripes" "96% of black vote going to Obama is not rasism, is it? Nooooooo!" "Until they step it up, as a whole, the problem will persist". "When we can watch a sporting event and learn of the young man's parents instead of just his mom a majority of the time" Also, the readiness to condemn black leaders as "racist" and blacks who don't make vituperative condemnation of them their first priority as equally guilty, as though every black is responsible for what every other black says.
The prevalence of such attitudes even in "liberal" Lawrence, Kansas, indicates to me that they are likely to be even more prevalent elsewhere. And also that such attitudes are likely to affect access to voting. Consequently, Leonard Pitts is right to be worried about the termination of the Voting Rights Act. We all should be.
Is it racist to mention someone is Black, Hispanic, Latino.... No
I don't know how many times I have to say it's not his color, it's his ideology. However, being as he's black, he's out to strip white, working, successful suburbanites of any and all cash possible. He sees them as the white devil, just like Wright drummed into his and Moochelles ear every Sunday for 20 years. He has a score to settle in other words. His color is of no consequence to me, just his manner of governing and I use governing loosely. Summary: He Sucks as a president. But a stupid and increasingly "brown" America has to have him. They are the racists, not me.
pork ribs making a repeated arguement in denial of reality and the acceptance
of the horrors of the past makes one a racist or a bigot. I love watching
said people do the sidestep around the issue knowing full well
that the bluff of reality they to accomplish fools no one. you don't
fool me. maybe you are what you are. the other equasion here
is the counties in South Dakota where there's a historical
Lakota Indian majority being gerrymandered out of power
and profiled into submission by a wascichu (White)
minority to the point where the US Justice Department
intervened there or the denial of voting rights for Dine,
Pueblo, Hopi, Zuni, Apache, and other Indians of New
Mexico until 1951 when Native Americans received
the right to vote with the Snyder Act of 1924 and yet
White people fearful of the consequences of
exclusion were forced to let these Indians vote
27 years after a federal law passed. Call uninformed
people out and set the record straight. Don't
tolerate willful and billegerent ignorance
which I don't. If someone acts a certain way
the perception doesn't lie.
Racist/Bigot = A conservative who has just won an argument with a liberal.
Many of the folks who opposed the civil rights act in the Jim Crow south are still alive and still in positions of power. It was not so long ago.
Cain killed Abel (or so the story goes) so should all first born males be suspect and placed on special monitoring programs forever. Surely there must be an end to punishment for crimes committed generations ago??!!
Standard Pitts formula. Standard Pitts article. Nothing new here
Americans have been soaked for $15 trillion since the Civil Rights Act and maybe Leonard is just teed off that it has not only not helped the plight of the black man, but the black community is more dismal than ever. But also, that's why Leonard has a paycheck---he's here to tell us all it's ALL the white man's fault and always will be end of story. And his dreamy prez has increased welfare at an unprecedented rate, whether intentional or by clumsy leadership---of which we've seen a heapin' helpin'.
I have only one thing to say to Race Baiter Extraordinaire, Leonard Pitts:
CRY ME A RIVER!
When will Pitts write an article about Louis Farrakhan, Khallid Abdul Muhammad, the New Black Panthers, Jeremiah Wright and others of this ilk. You know...the Black KKK of contemporary America.
96% of black vote going to Obama is not rasism, is it? Nooooooo!
They don't want to stop them from voting because they are BLACK. They want to stop them from voting Democrat. I thought everybody knew this is "post-racial" America. Has been since Obama got elected.Racism died November of 2008. I thought you knew.
pork ribs, another all white meat.
Voting is not an "entitlement", it is a right. Scalia, at the very least, needs to recuse himself and probably should be impeached for that kind of remark. I personally believe it's his incipient Alzheimers. He needs to retire and stop holding on to the office in a desperate attempt to keep Obama from appointing his successor. Clarence Thomas can go with him.
porkribs sounds the sign of desparation....get the federal government that stopped
Little Rock in 1957 out of the way.....the forces that went to Ole Miss and Philadelphia,
Mississippi out of the way.....convince conservatives who've benefitted from
white priviledge for a century and a half that they want to go back in time....
to what? more racism? not playing the race card......I'm playing the history
card.....which conservatives fail at.....including scotus judges.
Pork ribs from which dictionary did you get those two (non) definitions? Here is what the world English dictionary says
racism or racialism (ˈreɪsɪzəm, ˈreɪʃəˌlɪzəm)
1. the belief that races have distinctive cultural characteristics determined by hereditary factors and that this endows some races with an intrinsic superiority over others
2. abusive or aggressive behaviour towards members of another race on the basis of such a belief
If you want or expect something from others or the government because of your race...you are the racist.
If in every situation you are confronted with you play the race card...you are the racist.
You want to end racism? Help out a black man. Until they step it up, as a whole, the problem will persist. When we can watch a sporting event and learn of the young man's parents instead of just his mom a majority of the time...that's when we'll know we're on the right track. Keep following race baiters like Leonard Pitts and things will only get worse.
