    Because people like you would like us to belive racism do not exist and if want it hidden, forgotten and not talked about. Called White Guilt. Racism in American is alive and well and growing.

    lol... if it weren't for folks like LOL, the word "stupid" might never have been put together with the term "opinionated people"... :eusa_angel:


    eta: considering LOL, I probably should have created another, more specifically entitled, thread... I'll leave it to others to name what that thread might be called...

    'k... I'm gonna back off a bit and (conditionally) apologize to LOL...

    but I gotta say that anybody who refuses (for what ever reason) to give a fair hearing to both sides of an issue is blinding themselves... and makes it less likely that their opinions are taken seriously in the public square...

    Some issues have only one side, racism is one of those. There is no excuse for racism, only an explanation: Ignorance.

    so I imagine that, in that cloud-filled ethereal universe in which you apparently live, you've never had a negative knee-jerk reaction whenever you've read or heard the terms "redneck", "southern white man", "GOP", etc...

    Race is being used for political advantage by this administration. This administration needs to be removed.
