    'I don't think being a minority
    makes you a victim of anything except numbers. The
    only things I can think of that are truly
    discriminatory are things like the United Negro
    College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black Entertainment
    Television, and Miss Black America. Try to have
    things like the United Caucasian College Fund, Cloud
    Magazine, White Entertainment Television, or Miss
    White America ; and see what happens...Jesse Jackson
    will be knocking down your door.


    Guns do not make you a killer. I
    think killing makes you a killer. You can kill
    someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is
    trying to ban you from driving to the ball game.


    I believe they are called the
    Boy Scouts for a reason, which is why there are no
    girls allowed. Girls belong in the Girl Scouts! ARE
    YOU LISTENING MARTHA BURKE ?

    I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is
    not a phobia, it is an
    opinion.


    I have the right 'NOT' to be
    tolerant of others because they are different,
    weird, or tick me off.

    When 70%
    of the people who get arrested are black, in cities
    where 70% of the population is black, that is not
    racial profiling; it is the Law of Probability.


    I believe that if you are
    selling me a milkshake, a pack of cigarettes, a
    newspaper or a hotel room, you must do it in
    English! As a matter of fact, if you want to
    be an American citizen, you should have to speak
    English!

    My father and
    grandfather didn't die in vain so you can leave the
    countries you were born in to come over and
    disrespect ours.

    I think the
    police should have every right to shoot you if you
    threaten them after they tell you to stop. If you
    can't understand the word 'freeze' or 'stop' in
    English, see the above lines..

    I don't think just because you were not born in this
    country, you are qualified for any special loan
    programs, government sponsored bank loans or tax
    breaks, etc., so you can open a hotel, coffee shop,
    trinket store, or any other business.


    We did not go to the aid of
    certain foreign countries and risk our lives in wars
    to defend their freedoms, so that decades later they
    could come over here and tell us our constitution is
    a living document and open to their
    interpretations.

    I don't hate
    the rich; I don't pity the poor.

    I know pro wrestling is fake, but so are movies and
    television. That doesn't stop you from watching
    them.

    I think Bill Gates has
    every right to keep every penny he made and continue
    to make more. If it ticks you off, go and
    invent the next operating system that's better, and
    put your name on the building.


    It doesn't take a whole village
    to raise a child right, but it does take a parent to
    stand up to the kid
    and say 'NO!' when necessary.

    I think tattoos and piercings are fine if you want
    them, but please don't pretend they are a political
    statement. And, please, stay home until that new lip
    ring heals. I don't want to look at your ugly
    infected mouth as you serve me French fries!

    I am sick of 'Political
    Correctness.' I know a lot of black people, and not
    a single one of them was born in Africa ,
    so how can they be 'African-Americans'?
    Besides, Africa
    is a continent. I don't go around saying I am a
    European-American because my great, great, great,
    great, great, great grandfather was
    from
    Europe .
    I am proud to be from America
    and nowhere else.

    And if you
    don't like my point of view, tough.
