    Pointing out racism or perceived racism, as something that's racist and offensive in and of itself?

    Especially being that, often times, these same folks also tend to have very tepid responses to actual racist acts.

    What is racist in your eyes?

    When is it OK to talk about racism?

    When is OK to speak out and/or be outraged about racism?

    Does someone have to have a sign on their back and a KKK uniform on for you to begin to say or see that is wrong?

    I'd really like to know here, because this stuff is getting ridiculous now.

    Let's put it this way: the shepherd boy has called "Wolf!" once too many times.

    The problem is people like Truth Matter who call everyone racist 24/7, they wash down the word and when real racism occurs people don't believe it, thats the case on this board anyways.:doubt:

    Because Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have ruined the race card. They put it in the spoke of their bicycle tire and wore it out. Therefore, when they're the first on the scene of a racist event, it instantly gets watered down and people are skeptical as to whether there was racism or not.

    Unfortunately, for everyone, not just you and your argument, they're almost always the first on the scene.

    Seriously Marc??
    This whole Trayvon thing has shown me who you really are.
    A racist.
    Why? Because you made about a hundred threads on it but I am more than willing to bet it would never occur to you to make a thread about blacks killing blacks, you wouldn't dream about getting all fired up about a black killing a white.
    And this makes you a racist.

    A lot of your threads seem to be about race.

    If one group of the population makes up 12% ?

    And that one group ( happens to be the majority in all 10 of the highest crime and most dangerous cities in america ? ) (( all 10 ))

    and that one 12% group fills 50% of the entire prison system in the country ?

    And that one 12% group anually makes up 49% of (( every murder )) nationally ?

    And that one 12% group ( is the only group ) that has a 70% illegitimacy rate ?

    To realize thers as facts it does not take racist !

    It takes a realist ?

    To ignore the facts takes sheer ignorance

    why did obamas own grandmother fear young black males !

    Because she had common sense !

    Freud said "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar."

    But some folks see everything as racist.

    Perhaps they don't have a valid excuse for their own behavior and use that race card as a get out of jail free card of sorts.

    Perhaps they are too racist themselves to see real racism when it occurs.

    Perhaps they think that blaming racism is a valid default position.

    Anyway it happens, it makes genuine racism disappear in a cloud of suspicion and doubt.
