there are racists everywhere. we all know it. you should look for people like omega ohm in anti-france threads: he's a quite violent xenophobe. of course, judging a person on the color of their skin is so obviously flawed, and stupid, that many try to deny they are racist, but we know they are. perhaps they try to deny it because their argument would be shot down directly, perhaps because they don't really have the clarity of mind to see that they are racists. i don't know

this one now moaning on about students cheering oj. well, firstly i'm sure there were many sportspeople or others for whom oj was a hero who cheered for him. many others didn't understand that he was guilty, as his defense sold the whole pitch on it being a racially motivated prosecution. if it fooled a jury, why wouldn't it fool members of the public? but no, this character here trots it out in defense of his perverted view. glibly ignoring the decades of lynchings cheered on by damn near one and all.

i don't know if you ever frequent the sort of bars that exist outside of well-integrated society. if you do, you'll find racism alive and well in its full drunken, shouting, physical beauty. we know that it is only the most revolting thugs who admit publicly to their racism when asked, but there are many, many more who are racist, who deny it, and who try to muddy the waters at every chance. that's life. it's sad, but it's true

I went to a ghetto middle school (it also had a 70/30 B/W ratio). I was harrassed, attacked, hit with rocks (big ones), even shot with a farking firecracker. I was a small kid at the time, not a threat; a gentle soul more interested in studying than in race wars. I guess I had it coming, though, because I was white?


I NEVER said that.

Again:

All racism is irrational and ultimately, unjustified.

Anti-white racism was created by whites, in their maltreatment of blacks. Anti-black racism was created by whites, in their justification of their maltreatment of blacks.


You ever heard of eating crow? Well, there is also eating Jim Crow.

What's even scarier is that I think about 70% of the racists don't even UNDERSTAND that they are racist.

Everyone's a little bit racist.
 
2004-12-14 02:02:26 PM
oh and he (DrunkenBuzzsaw) said this

**... are you serious... mabey if white people had been oppresed by blacks for many years stolen from their homeland and forced to pick cotton, being whipped all the while being called cracker... then mabey it would be as offensive.

being called cracker is about as offensive as calling elmo fuzzy or furry...**


I can see your point Mattybdogeater...and you're right, white people weren't the ones that suffered through all of that.

But that doesn't mean that I was the one who did it. Our ancestors? Sure, it's obvious that they did.

But why should I have to suck it up when called a cracker...when I wasn't the one that had the whip in my hand, doing all of that??

Offensive is offensive. Period.

Be sure and let us know when some Romans are found guilty of dragging an Irishman down a highway with a log chain.

The Romans would laugh at that. Read some history. Read about Bodacea. Read about Carthage. That log chain pales in comparison...which is a scary thought.



He was talking about today, moran. The point was that the black/white bigotry is prety much extant, including hate crimes against blacks. whereas the Irish / Roman is quite extinct.

Everyone's a little bit racist.

Perhaps true. It's a biological mechanism to learn to prejudge to avoid some pain (IE you see a snake in the jungle with a yellow head coloring and it bites you, you avoid the next one. Perhaps that first one was just really enraged because another human has smashed it's eggs. Perhaps it would be a wonderful food source, and there are multitudes of them in the area. Now you'll never know because you avoid it.)


What matters is not the prejudices you learned as a child, but what you do with them. I definetly have some innate learned hatred, but I make a concious effort to never act upon them.

Hey, what if he said he was dressed as O.J., had our justice system put the murderer behind bars as it should have? That would be a perfectly acceptable costume for a judge in my opinion. A funny costume, with a sort of political statement.

Now...it would have been undeniably racist had he painted his face black, worn an afro, put on big-ass fake lips, tied a bucket of KFC to his waist, kept a wedge of watermelon hanging out of his pocket, put together some "bling", and dribbled a basket ball wherever he went.

But please...he dressed up as a black prisoner, big deal.

That is a verifiably untrue statement. Own up to it, please. It will take me 3 seconds to find a murderously racist quote from any hundred prominent white folks from the time, and all of them would surpass the most incindiery thing Malcom X ever said.



Ok, I might have been a bit over the top with saying as bad as the worst, but at least admit that Malcom X did not like white people very much at all.

Don't forget the 3 Mile Chain Drag.

You know, you're right. There was an instance of 3 monsters committing a heinous act against a black man.

But no white folks were cheering for those 3...

/I'll see your black-man-dragged-by-three-whites and raise you a Wichita Massacre

//oh, what's that? You never heard of the Wichita Massacre?


Now suddenly, the crimes of two black men are equated to a centuries old enslavement and oppression of blacks? A systematic destruction of any form of self-organization they have ever tried? The refusal to let them vote, because they are "mud people"?

I can't imagine why an uneducated black criminal would think that whites were evil.

Again:
Anti-white racism was created by whites, in their maltreatment of blacks. Anti-black racism was created by whites, in their justification for their maltreatment of blacks.

See, whites get to own both flavors, which is why Chappelle can do what he does and why your leader Rush Limbaugh gets fired from ESPN in five minutes flat. That stupid Limbaugh actually believed his own press enough to think that the ESPN audience was as "enlightened" as his radio audience. Pwnd fatty, go take an Oxycontin and blame it on the NAACP.

Why is it so difficult for people to understand that it not only is offensive and "wrong" for what the judge did, but also his right under the 1st Amendment?
Do you beleive that free speech is allowed to call for the overthrow of the government, but not allowed to say or do anything that makes somebody feel bad? Riiiiight. That's consistent.
Why are the only two arguments that he's not "allowed" to do this or what he did is "OK"? (Both arguments are wrong, IMO).

p.s. - I noticed handfuls of completely irrelevant references to both "Bush" and "Christians". Why is that narrow bigots have such a one track mind? This thread could be about nothing but Jell-O brand pudding, and the same jerkoffs would somehow reach deep up into their ass and pull out some kind of correlation to Bush or Christians. Why not just tattoo "IQ less than 100" on your forehead and voluntarily suspend your own keyboard privileges?

I saw sort of the same thing. I attended Northwest High School in Omaha NE during the 80's. I was very active in JROTC. Something happened in my junior year, and the whole school "flipped" from 80/20 W/B to 40/60 W/B. Suddenly, most of the kids in JROTC who outranked me were blacks from predominantly black schools. And they had a field day venting their rage on us whites. Many of us quit. Do you hear me Faustine Pankney, you biatch?

I don't think that was right, it was downright mean, but it did kind of give me an inkling of what a black person might feel if, say, he were interviewing for a job with LoveInAction.

In Louisiana judges are elected officials; no one supposes that a member of the Legislature could be constitutionally disciplined or removed from office, even for the most vile racial jokes or proven animus. Why then must judges, who raise money like politicians and run for office like politicians, have their right to be dumbass morons subject to monitoring?

The W.E.T. channel only have Little House on the Prairie, All in the Family, and The Honeymooners on 24-7. That is why there is not a W.E.T. channel. =P

That said, I have no problem if you want to have an exclusively white organization. As long as the organization is not publicly funded, that is their right to be discriminatory. Just like I don't have a problem with the WNBA not letting men play. Or MENSA letting Cletus the Slack-jawed Yokel in. Or the NAACP not providing scholarships to poor white teens. Private organizations have every right to be do discriminate.

And I have every right to protest them, speak ill of them, and not patron any of them.

As far as the judge... he should know better. He has the right to free speech, but all rights bear responsibility. It calls into question any sentence he has made against a black person. Now, if he had dressed up like O.J. or a specific black person, that would be a different story. Making fun of a person=OK. Making fun of a race=bad. If this was a black judge dressing up as a white convict, I would have the same problem.

Comedians can make fun of whomever they like. You don't like it? Protest. Boycott. They are not public employees.

Yes, but to make up for it they live less that white people (blacks die 10 years earlier, on the average), their babies die more upon birth (18/1000 DOBs as opposed to 6/1000 national)

So because a bunch of black mothers screw over their children with crack, I should cry them a river?

No, you're right, it is a serious problem, and we should do something about it. So here's my idea: Mandatory hysterectomy after crack baby #1. Or hell, after crack conviction number one. Dock their welfare payments for a few years to cover the cost too.

You are an asshat on so many levels, it's hard to know where to start.

Can't argue with you. But it's nice to be right.

Excellent point, mama's_tasty_foods. I think he had a right to do what he did. But he certainly doesn't have a right to remain free from criticism or even have a right to not lose support and votes for his dumb decision.

Why is it so difficult for people to understand that it not only is offensive and "wrong" for what the judge did, but also his right under the 1st Amendment?


It is. But it also shows that he is not a fair and impartial person which a judge is supposed to be. The first amendment does not guarantee that you cannot suffer retributions for exercising your free speech right, only that congress cannot limit them by law.

So he did not commit any kind of crime, and was never charged with one. He did receive proffessional retribution for conduct unbecoming.

Here is the Right Wing Reactionary Religio-Racist mind at work. When an issue you can't defend comes up, attack somebody, don't go near the issue.

Gun Control - Michael Moore is fat.

Intelligent Design - Liberal educators r teh gay.

Iraq-mire - Kofi and Clinton made it come to this.

Race - They can say it, I can't - they are bigger racists.

Dinner is served - Liberals want to tell you what to do.

2004-12-14 02:37:31 PM
Maybe this will explain best how I see it, that the judge
has and had, no reason to be suspended, period:

Nothing over the years that racists, out and out racists have
said, has EVER made me suspect that there was any reason to
not see Bill Cosby as anything but a great guy.

Nothing over the years where teachers, TV, etc... have
tried to tell me that racism is bad and I should try my best
to always see others as equal, has EVER made me suspect that
there was any reason to not see Bill Cosby as anything but
a great guy.

This judge here, at the party, him painting his face black
and the rest of his costume, it in no way, EVER will make
me suspect that there is any reason to not see Bill Cosby
as anything but a great guy.

In all three cases, the racism, vacination against racism,
nor someone joking around, none of those cases did anything
to change my thoughts about Bill Cosby.

Bill Cosby is black. Him being black didn't stop me from
liking him as a person, nor made me feel anything adverse
against him. Him being himself, that's what made him a
great guy... and it didn't depend on racists, vacinations
against racism, nor some joker painting his face at a party.

Same could be said about Oprah and others. Color just
doesn't matter... unless you're a PC'er and find color
offensive and have to cover color up so as to not offend
people.

I don't believe in any of this "history" of racism BS. Get me behind the wheel, and I can tell you exactly what color someone is just by the way they drive. You can tint the windows on 5-7 identical cars, and they will all show their true identity more than any stereotyping of color can even come close to.

Hmmm...who drives the fastest? Who swerves the most? Who drives the slowest? Who has no clue?
