    That's not correct: they don't define themselves as a separate race. However, like many African Americans and Asian Americans, a great many Hispanics are mixed race. It's really time for America, and indeed the world, to stop defining people by race and for people to stop self-identifying by race. Race is a man-made, subjective concept that has nothing to do with fact. It's all emotional.

    My point about minorities was a political one. Minorities is a social-political definition, not a racial one.

    There will always be groups. If not race then something else

    YOu ignore them, you are blinding yourself to real data.


    Obama was not just a President. He was the first black President. That made a real difference.

    For me, I consider someone like yourself a simpleton. At least some inkling of a terrorist plot is normally involved.

    According to published reports the shooter lived alone with a stack of bibles and no furniture.

    Was he nuts before finding religion, or after finding religion?

    Terrorism is defined as a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

    Then "political religion concerns governmental ideologies whose cultural and political backing is so strong that they are said to attain power equivalent to those of a state religion, with which they often exhibit significant similarities in both theory and practice?"

    Your post doesn't seem to make a final point or claim...


    Are you claiming that his having a lot of bibles means his acts were politically motivated?

    I am claiming such. Even the head snake oil salesman, Billy Graham used such tactics to move the political argument and push the religious agenda.

    Billy Graham Political Advertisement

    Here is a list of religious based laws.

    Which US states have passed religious laws?

    Religion is VERY POLITICAL.

    If American workers made a living wage they wouldn't feel the need to shop at Walmart.
