This Deserved its own thread:
I totally appreciate the stern tone of this post.
But I don't think this is the whole story.
Blacks, in my view, have the problems they do because they're "differently evolved": they've got shorter time horizons, lower IQ's, hair-trigger responses -- in other words, a totally different way of living than whites.
They can correctly claim that enslavement was more of an injustice than anything the Irish in America faced.
They faced that AS A GROUP.
Today, whites -- AS A GROUP -- face injustice.
Look at this:
Lawsuit alleges discrimination against white officers by L.A. Airport Police - latimes.com
Are these whites "whining"?
Well, yes... but they have a right to.
They really are getting screwed AS A GROUP.
Telling a cop who got rejected for promotion because he's white that he needs to stop whining about being a victim and "do for himself" IS NOT GOING TO CUT IT.
Rhet was one of the biggest assholes at Hannity. Brutally racist. Not scarey just unenlightened and louder than most. I get about two sentences into one of her postings and my eyes glaze over.
What she deserves is her own padded room, not her own thread..

Holy shit yeah. I knew she was an always angry, overly wordy bitch, but maybe because I almost never bothered to read most of her 10 page screaming rants , I was unaware of what a racist she is.
She'll get along great with the white supremacists here.
I like this dude!
What he says is true, and he says it as though he's HAD IT with the stoopidity,
as haven't we all?
I'm tired of hearing about black suffering, too.
I don't make anyone suffer, and would take some of their burden if I saw it happening.
I love folks, and know that we're ALL just peeps on God's green earth,
with our wants and needs, we're all the same: MAN.
You're on a roll, Sam ~ all of teh funneh posts about Si, and they were EPIC
and now this?
WTF ARE you, dude?
I'd like to know you better, and if that's not possible?
Then I'd just like for you to know that I value your input
(that sounds SO ... )
and the way your mind WORKS, 'cuz the fact that it's WORKING? Should be obvious to all of us.
Thank you, sweetie.
I've read stuff about this:
Black folks ARE different from white folks, scientific studies that I didn't really know WHAT to make of, the differences that are sort of like the differences between men and women, muscle mass, basic build, brain function, etc.
I worried that if I believed THAT,
for sure FACTS that stared me in the face,
I was a racist.
Now, I'm just not so sure that all of us weren't built differently, for different purposes:
men; women; black folks; white folks; asian folks.
I'm pretty sad that we can't even BEGIN to explore any of the differences without being called asshat racists, but there ARE differences between us.

Sarah, I actually read the post without preconception (I've never been a member "at Hannity"), and didn't find anything except the opposite of "brutal racism."
Well, don't you know PPV that Blacks are a bunch of whiney crybabies. Just because we enslaved them, hung them from the highest tree, bought and traded them like animals doesn't mean they get any respect from Rhet.
They have to earn her respect! Damn right!
If it makes you feel any better, you've earned MY respect.
