    I am so sick and tired of the minority groups in this country getting everything the want everytime they whine, it makes me wanna fuckin puke!
    Some kid gets offended at the teacher in his class reading Mark Twain because she said "THE "N" WORD". sO NOW THEY ARE CONSIDERING TAKING THE BOOK OUT OF THE SCHOOL because his Mom raised her voice..Sorry for the caps...I am so pissed!!!
    I got a message for you and your little ****** kid lady...Why don't you take your ****** boy out of class, or better yet out of school because he is disruptive and a trouble maker?.
    Why don't you go listen to his C.D. collection which I guarantee you has some RAP CRAP talking about ****** this and ****** that and killing and gangs...ETC...
    Maybe you should be more concerned with the music,(if you can call it that), he is listening to...OOOH thats right, you wouldn't want to do something that might go against your own kind (COLOR) now would you!
    THE WHITES ARE NOW THE MINORITY IN AMERICA AND IT IS TIME WE STARTED WHINING...LETS START WITH A WHITE COLLEGE FUND AND A WHITE MISS AMERICA AND FINANCIAL AID TO THE NEW MINORITY...THE WHITES!!!

    It's sad, I mean, I remember reading Huck Finn years ago and the empathy that the author had stood out a mile. He was writing in context. This sort of thing just rubs out cultural memory. Ridiculous.

    I think this issue is stupid, but your rant is a bit extreme there...

    "The Odyssey was either written by Homer or by another man with the same name." -Mark Twain

    While I agree that the rant was a bit over the top, the banning of books is by no means a stupid issue. After the books are banned, the next step would be to burn them.

    If you haven't done so, may I suggest you read Fahrenheit 451?

    I admit the rant was over the top. I am just so tired of watching our rights, our heratige, our traditions and even the "GOD" issue being striped away from us day after day one by one. It is depressing to watch as it happens.
    I did read the book and loved it. I saw a commercial today that was selling bio oil for aging skin...What's next...Soilent Green? maybe the term cracker won't be a derogatory remark anymore if that happens because we will all be crackers.
    The teacher was asked by the mother of the boy for a written appology and to do community service. The school is (for now) going to keep the book. They have removed the boy from the class.
    How much longer do we have to appologise to this race of people for what happened by our grand parents long ago. If i were that teacher, I would give no appology for reading a great piece of AMERICAN history...HUCK FIN. iN THE BOOK IT IS EVEN DISCUSSED THAT THEY SHOULD STOP USING THAT WORD. What really gets me is...You can put 4 or 5 black teenagers together and eventually one will reach out his hand to another one and say "WHAT UP ******" and call themselves ****** and that is acceptable, but for a white man to say it could mean whitie is going home with a few missing teeth. :wtf:

    I understand and agree with a lot of your post, and yes, there IS a double-standard.

    However, I would suggest the term is inappropriate for anyone to use. I don't particularly care that some blacks address each other as such ... look at which segment of the black population is doing it. Hardly anyone worth emulating.

    I agree Gunny. It is not that segment I am concerned about. It is the ones who listen to them who have power. Aren't civil rights for everyone? Why do the blacks own the rights and all the power to CIVIL rights?
    Anyway, it just made me feel good to exercise my right to freedom of speach while I still can.:eusa_think:
    To those who complain about how bad they have it in this country and are out to still complain about the slavery issue, I have this to say...GET OVER IT! We have apologized as much as we are going to!!! And the last I heard, the traffic lanes are still open to Rowanda and Ethiopia!!! Go home for awhile...I bet you won't be complaining about how bad you have it here anymore!!!!!!!!

    6. Empire

    Last night the word came down, ten dead in Chinatown.
    Innocent, their only crime was being in the wrong place, at the wrong time
    Too bad, people say what's wrong with the kids today
    Tell you right now they've got nothing to lose

    They're building EMPIRE!

    Johnny used to work after school
    at the cinema show.
    Gotta hustle if he wants an education
    he's got a long way to go.
    Now he's out on the street all day
    selling Crack to the people who pay.
    Got an AK-47 for his best friend
    business the American way.

    Eastside meets Westside downtown.
    No time, the walls fall down

    Can't you feel it coming? EMPIRE! Can't you hear it calling?
    Black man, trapped again. hold his chain in his hand.
    Brother killing brother for the profit of another,
    Game point, nobody wins. Decline, right on time.
    What happened to the dream sublime?
    Tear it all down, we'll put it up again. Another EMPIRE?

    Eastside meets Westside downtown.
    No time, no line, the walls fall down.

    Can't you feel it coming? EMPIRE!
    Can't you hear it coming EMPIRE!
    Can't someone here stop it...??!!

    I disagree with banning Mark Twain over the word ******. I disagree with banning harry potter books because of the magic involved. Let the kids read.

    I give all the credit for it to Goeff Tate. I supose I should have put that at the bottom. I, in no way take any credit for any of the lyrics that i put on this or any other site unless otherwise stated.
    3. Revolution Calling

    For a price I'd do about anything
    Except pull the trigger
    For that I'd need a pretty good cause
    Then I heard of Dr. X
    The man with the cure
    Just watch the television
    Yeah, you'll see there's something going on

    Got no love for politicians
    Or that crazy scene in D.C.
    It's just a power mad town
    But the time is ripe for changes
    There's a growing feeling
    That taking a chance on a new kind of vision is due

    I used to trust the media
    To tell me the truth, tell us the truth
    But now I've seen the payoffs
    Everywhere I look
    Who do you trust when everyone's a crook?

    Revolution calling
    Revolution calling
    Revolution calling you
    (There's a) Revolution calling
    Revolution calling
    Gotta make a change
    Gotta push, gotta push it on through

    I'm tired of all this bullshit
    They keep selling me on T.V.
    About the communist plan
    And all the shady preachers
    Begging for my cash
    Swiss bank accounts while giving their
    Secretaries the slam

    They're all in Penthouse now
    Or Playboy magazine, million dollar stories to tell
    I guess Warhol wasn't wrong
    Fame fifteen minutes long
    Everyone's using everybody, making the sale

    I used to think
    That only America's way, way was right
    But now the holy dollar rules everybody's lives
    Gotta make a million doesn't matter who dies

    Revolution calling
    Revolution calling
    Revolution calling you
    (There's a) Revolution calling
    Revolution calling
    Gotta make a change
    Gotta push, gotta push it on through

    I used to trust the media
    To tell me the truth, tell us the truth
    But now I've seen the payoffs
    Everywhere I look
    Who do you trust when everyone's a crook?

    Revolution calling
    Revolution calling
    Revolution calling you
    (There's a) Revolution calling
    Revolution calling
    Gotta make a change
    Gotta push, gotta push it on through

    oh.. i wasn't accusing you of stealing their song. It just came from nowhere and, let's face it, very few people quote queensryche.


    Hell, I had Empire on tape...
