"That was very demeaning to African-American women when it made reference to African-American women as whores, and at the end it says 'watch your back,'" said Leon Jenkins of the Los Angeles NAACP.

Dear god NAACP, where do you think people might get the idea of the stereotype of the ignorant black American who can't read and who is always looking to make a quick buck off of their skin color? Would that be because of you? Yeah, I think it might.

I worked briefly (less than 7 months then I moved on for more $) in marketing for a company that makes an extremely delicious light ranch salad dressing in a jar (sold in the veggie section of the market), headquartered in the deep south. I was the admin puke with no authority or respect, so when given the very bland company newsletter, I dove in and took charge and jazzed it up. Added graphics and space fillers (trivia, news to use, etc) to fill the blanks. After the second month, the admin puke in retail (who tacked on the retail stats) decided to get creative and add something "cool" and "interesting" to her portion. She added "the origin of the term "to be fired", as in, in ancient Scotland, an undesirable group's (aka "clan's) soddy would be set aflame to chase them out (how freakin' motivational....ya' bonehead.) Anyway, it got published. The production floor, 99% black here in the deep south, read it. Some of them FLIPPED...THE.....FARK....OUT.... They saw "clan" and "fire" and the entire factory shut down. They interpreted the worst, most obscure meaning into a harmless (albeit poorly thought out)article. The blacks in the offices, the white collar employees, were not offended or outraged to my knowledge, in fact, they seemed embarrassed by the turmoil. Things did calm down, and to this day, you, the consumer, enjoy your Light Ranch dressing.

I don't mean to make any judgement or profound statement, merely an observation. Granted, the chick posting the story about the origin of "being fired" was an insensitive bonehead, to my CA-raised self, this was a dynamic that caught me off guard. It struck me as extreme hypersensitivity to an innocent faux pas. If I am wrong, I trust I will be corrected on this forum.

My mom is a CNA at a nursing home, and a reasonable portion of the staff is black. She's irritated because a coworker got canned off second shift due to a wide variety of job negligence, and then said coworker sued claiming she got fired due to her race. So now she and another girl are coming back under that guise, when in fact they got canned for not doing their freaking jobs correctly. Apparently this is why my mom works third shift... she doesn't have to put up with such crap.

Yes, because organizations like the NAACP and the UNCF which happen to be widely recognized national institutions should alter their names selected at times when "negro" and "colored" were the accepted, non-derogatory terms. Makes sense to me. I like the added touch of white victimization that you'd be on the "receiving end of a hate-crime", implying that if you called a person what is today a slur but in 1944 when the NAACP was incorporated was not, they would beat you merely and for no other reason than being white.

I read a book by the American theoretical physicist Kip Thorne back when and this story jogged my memory about it.
I dug up the info back up to post the relevant references.

Under the hoop conjunction theory by Kip Thorne black holes have no hair.
The, "black holes have no hair" phrase did raise a few eyebrows in days gone by. Many people felt it a very suggestive taboo description. Kip Thorne briefly discussed the controversy about it in his book.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_relativity
Horizons
Main articles: Horizon (general relativity), No hair theorem, and Black hole mechanics
Using global geometry, some spacetimes can be shown to contain boundaries called horizons, which demarcate one region from the rest of spacetime. The best-known examples are black holes: if mass is compressed into a sufficiently compact region of space (as specified in the hoop conjecture, the relevant length scale is the Schwarzschild radius[131]), no light from inside can escape to the outside

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hoop_conjecture
The Hoop Conjecture, proposed by Kip Thorne in 1972, states that an imploding object forms a black hole when, and only when, a circular hoop with a specific critical circumference could be placed around the object and rotated. The critical circumference is given by 2 times Pi times the Schwarzschild radius corresponding to the object's mass.

OK.. people still ARE racist. Racism is still a big problem for every visible minority, many of whom are also racist against each other. Non-blacks do and say terrible things to blacks in North America every day, just because they're black, and the black community still faces endemic social problems as the sad legacy of centuries of oppression.

Which is why I'm not sure why the NAACP are wasting their time on crap like this, but I assume it probably boils down to one or a few people (ie this Leon Jenkins guy) getting their HULK RAGE on without sitting back and thinking "wait... Hallmark would obviously not make a grad card with a reference to 'black whores' in it".

"There's a lot of racism going on. Who's more racist, black people or white people? It's black people! You know why? Because we hate black people too! Everything white people don't like about black people, black people really don't like about black people" -Chris Rock, 1996

I have a somewhat skewed take on race issues because I don't have to leave my house to hang out with black people. They live here. We laugh about most of this sh*t. We need more of that.

Black people and brown people are allowed to be racists. Women are allowed to be misandric sexists. You hear that "kaching"? That's the registers ringing as the "keeping people convinced that the black /white /brown / yellow / male / female person up the road is keeping them DOWN, man" industry keeps harvesting the gullible. Don't worry, though. All of that mistreatment, real or imagined, shall soon even out as white men just walk away from all the things they built - so as not to offend - and put on the official cloak of shame and the oppressed are doing the happy happy dance in the streets as the bells of equality peal like new year's day. We're all just one unintelligible, coin cell powered greeting card away from the promised land, y'all.

A special meeting about Dallas County traffic tickets turned tense and bizarre this afternoon.
County commissioners were discussing problems with the central collections office that is used to process traffic ticket payments and handle other paperwork normally done by the JP Courts.
Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, said it seemed that central collections "has become a black hole" because paperwork reportedly has become lost in the office.
Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black, interrupted him with a loud "Excuse me!" He then corrected his colleague, saying the office has become a "white hole."
That prompted Judge Thomas Jones, who is black, to demand an apology from Mayfield for his racially insensitive analogy.
Mayfield shot back that it was a figure of speech and a science term. A black hole, according to Webster's, is perhaps "the invisible remains of a collapsed star, with an intense gravitational field from which neither light nor matter can escape."
Other county officials quickly interceded to break it up and get the meeting back on track. TV news cameras were rolling, after all.

You say all that like it is proven, but I am not so sure just how much endemic racism still exists. Sure you can find some ignorant convenience store clerk who belongs to the Klan, but that tard has no power or influence.

How much of the ills of Black society are from racism and how much are from an attitude of petty criminality, trying to game the system, and always looking to government instead of relying on yourself?

bingethinker: I suppose if you can't speak proper English, ho and hole sound the same.

Funny you mention that, because there are some people who say that Blacks in the U.S. don't speak English.

NephilimNexus: ... in a world without racism the people working in the NAACP would be out of their jobs, so I suppose it's in their own best interest to look under every nook & cranny to find racism wherever it still exists... and even make it up in places it doesn't.

The NAACP has become so irrelevant that they are resorting to guilt-tripping professional Blacks into joining because not even professional Blacks want to join. The blue-collar Blacks don't care about the NAACP either unless they live in an area where people are afraid of the NAACP (read: the "deep South").

srhp29: How many rap albums have the NAACP had pulled due to their cutting remarks against black (and any other color) women?

The NAACP is at the level of the KKK when it comes to being a racist organization.


I was hoping to say both of these, but I've been beaten to it... so THESE.

A lot of Blacks are hypocrites about racism: it's racism when it happens to them, NOT when THEY do it.

The fact that they misheard it is annoying enough, but what really gets me is their insinuation that we can't refer to black whores. Look, some whores are black, and some black women are whores--that is an undeniable truism.

To refer to black whores refers to a cross section of whores, it doesn't lump ALL black women in that category.

There are also white women who are whores, who we refer to as white ho's, there are also some mexican women who are mexican ho's and there are asian ho's and german ho's and jewish ho's and even muslim ho's.

It is not racist to refer to a subclass of whores.

No kidding! If I called an African American "colored" these days, i'd find myself on the receiving end of a hate-crime.

Yes, because organizations like the NAACP and the UNCF which happen to be widely recognized national institutions should alter their names selected at times when "negro" and "colored" were the accepted, non-derogatory terms. Makes sense to me. I like the added touch of white victimization that you'd be on the "receiving end of a hate-crime", implying that if you called a person what is today a slur but in 1944 when the NAACP was incorporated was not, they would beat you merely and for no other reason than being white.

Yeah, that's pretty much right. Thanks for clarifying that for the rest of the class. Now perhaps you would like to engage your sense of humor and reinterpret my comment in the context it was intended.

"There's a lot of racism going on. Who's more racist, black people or white people? It's black people! You know why? Because we hate black people too! Everything white people don't like about black people, black people really don't like about black people" -Chris Rock, 1996

I have a somewhat skewed take on race issues because I don't have to leave my house to hang out with black people. They live here. We laugh about most of this sh*t. We need more of that.

Black people and brown people are allowed to be racists. Women are allowed to be misandric sexists. You hear that "kaching"? That's the registers ringing as the "keeping people convinced that the black /white /brown / yellow / male / female person up the road is keeping them DOWN, man" industry keeps harvesting the gullible. Don't worry, though. All of that mistreatment, real or imagined, shall soon even out as white men just walk away from all the things they built - so as not to offend - and put on the official cloak of shame and the oppressed are doing the happy happy dance in the streets as the bells of equality peal like new year's day. We're all just one unintelligible, coin cell powered greeting card away from the promised land, y'all.

Suckers.


Mmmm. The Kipling is good today. A bit on the tart side, but that can be refreshing.

Of course, since there's nothing exceptional about white folks as compared to other races, I promise you that if white men (myself included) walked away from "all we have built", things would go on functioning pretty much the same way.

Go read "Savage Inequality" by Jonathan Kozol for a good overview. The only reason Bill Gates created what he did was because of the educational and economic opportunities he had by dint of being a wealthy white guy. Unless you're claiming (erroneously) that an above-average intelligence black person with the same opportunities (and Gates had a shiat-ton) wouldn't have accomplished as much, back off the White Man's Burden stuff, okay?

freetomato: I worked briefly (less than 7 months then I moved on for more $) in marketing for a company that makes an extremely delicious light ranch salad dressing in a jar (sold in the veggie section of the market), headquartered in the deep south. I was the admin puke with no authority or respect, so when given the very bland company newsletter, I dove in and took charge and jazzed it up. Added graphics and space fillers (trivia, news to use, etc) to fill the blanks. After the second month, the admin puke in retail (who tacked on the retail stats) decided to get creative and add something "cool" and "interesting" to her portion. She added "the origin of the term "to be fired", as in, in ancient Scotland, an undesirable group's (aka "clan's) soddy would be set aflame to chase them out (how freakin' motivational....ya' bonehead.) Anyway, it got published. The production floor, 99% black here in the deep south, read it. Some of them FLIPPED...THE.....FARK....OUT.... They saw "clan" and "fire" and the entire factory shut down. They interpreted the worst, most obscure meaning into a harmless (albeit poorly thought out)article. The blacks in the offices, the white collar employees, were not offended or outraged to my knowledge, in fact, they seemed embarrassed by the turmoil. Things did calm down, and to this day, you, the consumer, enjoy your Light Ranch dressing.

I don't mean to make any judgement or profound statement, merely an observation. Granted, the chick posting the story about the origin of "being fired" was an insensitive bonehead, to my CA-raised self, this was a dynamic that caught me off guard. It struck me as extreme hypersensitivity to an innocent faux pas. If I am wrong, I trust I will be corrected on this forum.

OK.. people still ARE racist. Racism is still a big problem for every visible minority, many of whom are also racist against each other. Non-blacks do and say terrible things to blacks in North America every day, just because they're black, and the black community still faces endemic social problems as the sad legacy of centuries of oppression.

You say all that like it is proven, but I am not so sure just how much endemic racism still exists. Sure you can find some ignorant convenience store clerk who belongs to the Klan, but that tard has no power or influence.

How much of the ills of Black society are from racism and how much are from an attitude of petty criminality, trying to game the system, and always looking to government instead of relying on yourself?


Wow. I'm sorry, man, but you're full of crap. There are self-avowed members of the KKK in the Republican party. Hell Robert Byrd (the longest-serving U.S Senator) once ran an entire chapter of the KKK in Virginia.

Beyond that, there are any number of studies which show that even in an era lacking in overt racism, racism still exists when it comes to subtle choices, and times when an employer can choose to hire a white guy or black guy of equal qualifications. One need only check out a random sampling of EEOC complaints to see racism alive and well in economic environments.

I'll ignore the whole "rugged individualist" shtick, because frankly if everyone can't see through that we're idiots. We're all the product of the environment around us. Bill Gates was successful due to the opportunities afforded to him by wealthy parents and a privileged upbringing. But, even if we accept that there are lazy, greedy, blacks who are trying to get their money for nothing (and their chicks for free), I'm going to doubt it's a racial thing as much as a "some people are like that" thing.

A special meeting about Dallas County traffic tickets turned tense and bizarre this afternoon.
County commissioners were discussing problems with the central collections office that is used to process traffic ticket payments and handle other paperwork normally done by the JP Courts.
Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, said it seemed that central collections "has become a black hole" because paperwork reportedly has become lost in the office.
Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black, interrupted him with a loud "Excuse me!" He then corrected his colleague, saying the office has become a "white hole."
That prompted Judge Thomas Jones, who is black, to demand an apology from Mayfield for his racially insensitive analogy.
Mayfield shot back that it was a figure of speech and a science term. A black hole, according to Webster's, is perhaps "the invisible remains of a collapsed star, with an intense gravitational field from which neither light nor matter can escape."
Other county officials quickly interceded to break it up and get the meeting back on track. TV news cameras were rolling, after all.

Part 2:

Have you read more about the guy? He's a total crook and has threatened violence against anyone who dares oppose him, including reporters and government officials. In fact, people who oppose him often find themselves in potential danger, but of course that's just a coincidence. If anyone opposes something he supports, they will be labeled a racist.

He's currently trying to close down local businesses in the community so they can be torn down and replaced by developments owned by some very wealthy, very high profile, white investors. The owners of the businesses aren't going to be paid anywhere near what it would cost to relocate. The developments, if successful, would guarantee that the residents of the area would not be able to afford to stay, and you would see large scale gentrification.

But, of course, he's just out to protect his black constituents.

Dear stupid Knee-grows,
YOU ARE HURTING YOUR OWN CAUSE BY GETTING UPSET ABOUT SOMETHING THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN!!!! YOU NOW LOOK STUPID. Why aren't you up in arms about East Timur or some other cause relavant to what you stand for? Oh, that's right you haven't been relavent since the 70's. The NAACP is about as timely and important as the musket makers union. While we are at it, Al Sharpton, PLEASE STOP PROFITING OFF OF FAKE ANGER AND MADE UP CAUSES. YOU ARE IN FACT SETTING YOUR RACE BACK 200 YEARS BY BEING A TAP DANCING MONKEY FOR A PRETEND CAUSE. Being heard isn't being right or just it's just being loud for no reason. It's just like when everyone in San Diego was so upset that some college students were advertising a "Compton Cookout" and all the minority students got up in arms, stormed the deans office and demanded free tutoring and free this and free that. Then it was discovered that the party was being hosted by a BLACK student that calls himself ni**er Bob or some stupid shiat like that. Not one of you was a slave not one of you was dragged from your homeland and sold to the highest bidder and no one is holding you back but your selves. Yes there are racist organizations but they wield no real power. I am pretty sure there are a few black doctors, lawyers and successful black businessmen and possibly a black man holding one of the most powerful positions on the planet and everyone of them that reads this story is shaking their heads and saying to themselves "Oh no, not this shiat again." STOP MAKING YOURSELVES LOOK STUPID AND STOP BLAMING EVERYONE ELSE FOR YOUR OWN PERSONAL INADAQUACIES. STOP BLAMING SOCIETY FOR YOUR OWN PROBLEMS. Not everything is a racial issue sometimes you are just a lazy worthless piece of shiat, just like Redneck trailer trash white people that blame minorities for taking their jobs are lazy pieces of shiat. It's called accountability and responsibility. It's called picking your battles and not getting butt hurt about every little thing, especially things that don't exist.

Goddammit I am hung over and pissed off. This story has been in the news for a few days here and every time I hear/read it, it pisses me off to no end.

Sorry for any and all spelling and grammatical errors. I just don't care about that shiat right now.

"There's a lot of racism going on. Who's more racist, black people or white people? It's black people! You know why? Because we hate black people too! Everything white people don't like about black people, black people really don't like about black people" -Chris Rock, 1996

I have a somewhat skewed take on race issues because I don't have to leave my house to hang out with black people. They live here. We laugh about most of this sh*t. We need more of that.

Black people and brown people are allowed to be racists. Women are allowed to be misandric sexists. You hear that "kaching"? That's the registers ringing as the "keeping people convinced that the black /white /brown / yellow / male / female person up the road is keeping them DOWN, man" industry keeps harvesting the gullible. Don't worry, though. All of that mistreatment, real or imagined, shall soon even out as white men just walk away from all the things they built - so as not to offend - and put on the official cloak of shame and the oppressed are doing the happy happy dance in the streets as the bells of equality peal like new year's day. We're all just one unintelligible, coin cell powered greeting card away from the promised land, y'all.

Suckers.

Mmmm. The Kipling is good today. A bit on the tart side, but that can be refreshing.

Of course, since there's nothing exceptional about white folks as compared to other races, I promise you that if white men (myself included) walked away from "all we have built", things would go on functioning pretty much the same way.

Go read "Savage Inequality" by Jonathan Kozol for a good overview. The only reason Bill Gates created what he did was because of the educational and economic opportunities he had by dint of being a wealthy white guy. Unless you're claiming (erroneously) that an above-average intelligence black person with the same opportunities (and Gates had a shiat-ton) wouldn't have accomplished as much, back off the White Man's Burden stuff, okay?

It's stuff like this which screws up my wanting to 100% happily support and help fight for the rights of what MLK talked about - and just completely quit in disgust.

MLK said "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

I don't think he ever foresaw a world where a certain subset of people would use their own skin tone as a way to completely duck the whole "content of their character" part of the deal.

We have seen too many instances where some #$%! used the race card to completely duck the fact that maybe the problem wasn't their skintone, it was their BEHAVIOR.

But no... all they have to do is scream at you "RACIST!" (if you happen to have a lighter skin tone than them) to try to make you shut up and blame you instead. That way they can keep their excuse to duck their own adult responsibility to be a better person in the situation.

There's no excuse for this crap.

I personally don't give a rip about the amount of melanin (skin tone stuff) in another person's skin. I wanna know what kind of HUMAN you are, not based upon your appearance.

If you are cool, if you believe in bettering yourself by educating yourself about the world and it's possibilities; if you have a positive and curious open mind, hey, let's happily hang out and talk. You could be someone who looks like some sort of strange I-don't-know-what for all I know, I don't care about that. Just be a person I can admire for caring about the whole idea of ethical character and becoming a better person in the first place. :)

However... if it turns out that the human who I am dealing is full-on bent on using their skin tone as an excuse to try to blame and control other people... if they get pissed and yell "RACIST!" and play "i'm such a victim" in order to duck someone else daring to call them on the content of their character and/or behavior... THEN I get pissed.

I just want to scream: "Knock off that victim crap! Try to actually OUTCLASS those you oppose! Hit the books and get yourself educated! Libraries are free! Learn what "introspection" and "take responsibility for your own actions" both mean! Quit using your skintone to give yourself a blanket excuse to act like such an ignorant jerk!"

When I read shiat like this I picture MLK having a John McEnroe level meltdown up in heaven. Just screaming at the top of his lungs, jumping up and down and throwing shiat until Abe Lincoln comes over, puts his arm around him and in a soft and calming tone whispers " We've done all we can now it's their turn not to fark this up. Now you wanna tag team Anna Nicole Smith again?" And MLK takes a deep soothing breath slumps his shoulders in emotional surrender and sighs a very quiet "Yes Abe I would like that very much."

The Redneck Bubbas in Bedsheets couldn't kill this many blacks with all the rope in the old English navy, but the NAACP will get its colon in a knot over some stupid graduation card because one of their members with black-eyed peas in his ears thinks they heard an insult. Jeez-Louise! All of those cards sound like Charlie Brown's teacher.

Get this through your stupid, thick heads... sometimes people don't like you because you are an idiot and it has nothing to do with the color of your skin! The reality is, 99% of white America doesn't care about your color. If we avoid you, it is because you are obnoxious, loud, and annoying. It might also be because of your well-earned reputation for going-off at the drop of a hat, pulling out a gun and shooting indiscriminately. In Indianapolis, I know that Black Expo and Circle City Classic will each have at least ONE story of some knuckleheads having a disagreement because someone bumped into someone else or "dissed" someone and out come the 9mm's and POP-POP-POP!

I am so sick and tired of the "Knife & Gun Club" in the Emergency Department. That is the biggest threat to the African American community and it has nothing to do with racism.

freetomato: I worked briefly (less than 7 months then I moved on for more $) in marketing for a company that makes an extremely delicious light ranch salad dressing in a jar (sold in the veggie section of the market), headquartered in the deep south. I was the admin puke with no authority or respect, so when given the very bland company newsletter, I dove in and took charge and jazzed it up. Added graphics and space fillers (trivia, news to use, etc) to fill the blanks. After the second month, the admin puke in retail (who tacked on the retail stats) decided to get creative and add something "cool" and "interesting" to her portion. She added "the origin of the term "to be fired", as in, in ancient Scotland, an undesirable group's (aka "clan's) soddy would be set aflame to chase them out (how freakin' motivational....ya' bonehead.) Anyway, it got published. The production floor, 99% black here in the deep south, read it. Some of them FLIPPED...THE.....FARK....OUT.... They saw "clan" and "fire" and the entire factory shut down. They interpreted the worst, most obscure meaning into a harmless (albeit poorly thought out)article. The blacks in the offices, the white collar employees, were not offended or outraged to my knowledge, in fact, they seemed embarrassed by the turmoil. Things did calm down, and to this day, you, the consumer, enjoy your Light Ranch dressing.

Yeah, but I bet they spit in it.


I don't mean to make any judgement or profound statement, merely an observation. Granted, the chick posting the story about the origin of "being fired" was an insensitive bonehead, to my CA-raised self, this was a dynamic that caught me off guard. It struck me as extreme hypersensitivity to an innocent faux pas. If I am wrong, I trust I will be corrected on this forum.

That was neither boneheaded nor a faux pas, that was overestimating the intelligence of one's audience. If I owned the company and was inclined to set fire to my money, I'd be tempted to apologize profusely, tell them that as an act of penance I'd be shutting down production for a couple of months, that I hoped everyone enjoyed their unpaid vacation, and that if any future insensitivity disrupted company harmony that I'd close the company permanently rather than risk offending anyone else.

FYI: It's Ku Klux Klan. Notice there is no "C" in it. Oh yeah, they're idiots.

We had a case at IUPUI in Indianapolis of a custodian who was also taking college classes reading a book about the rise and fall of KKK as background for one of his classes. It was a historical look at the Klan in Indiana, how it grew to almost control the State's government and how it was eventually destroyed because of the excesses of its leader.

You guessed it, one of the other custodians, African American, "flipped the FARK out" (I like that expression), and complained to the supervisor. The student/custodian was reprimanded for being "insensitive" and banned from reading or bringing any books with him to read on his breaks. Eventually, higher administration told the complainer that his complaint was not valid, to shut up and get back to work... or something along those lines.

The biggest problem with these racism attention whores is that when REAL cases of racism happen, they won't be addressed because people will think it's just another "cry wolf" moment. The biggest enemy of African Americans is the damage done to them by the race-baiters and attention hounds who claim to be their "leaders."

The two party system allows for a few things.

1. - It lets the fringe elements of the two ostensibly disparate philosophies to define themselves by giving them a defined, philosophical environment with walls to bounce off of.

2. - It keeps the delusion that you have concrete choice. It's like going to the town's only ice cream parlour and they got vanilla and vanilla with sprinkles and signs are everywhere extolling the virtues of each and you can have vanilla, vanilla with sprinkles, vanilla with sprinkles, hold the sprinkles, sprinkles or vanilla with sprinkle layers, but you are f*cking well getting your ice cream here.

3. - It allows each party to put their dog on their ponies without losing anybody's interest because "there's something going on with THAT dog and pony", which, obviously, is not like the OTHER dog and pony.

It's not easy to create an artificial socio-econonmic environment for the masses that will keep them engaged while you skim off all the cream.

Imagine what a relief it was for the ruling class when we all started pointing at any shmuck who could afford a suit and a nameplate and saying "Well, I guess they're the government!", and started doing it for them.

Sounding intelligent, and being intelligent are two different things. The NAACP rep sounds neither and is doing the black community a disservice.

I don't understand why the NAACP hasn't dissolved. pack it in, shut down. prop of their feet and kick back for a while. they won - they've got a black man into the white house. why are they still around?

'Cause they're jus equal. They want to be MORE equal.


Many believe they are less than equal, thou they are not, but spend a lot of time thinking that. It's self repression I've seen it over and over. I also hear many being deviously racist against a lot of other races, and thinking that's acceptable, but if you call them out, you catch hell like you just did all the name calling you're self to them and the others.. Most are Especially racist to Hispanics in Chicago. You also hear a lot of N'ga this and N'ga that, but some how that's ok to call each other it. It's a perpetuated issue among most blacks to just tear each other down and hate on others like they we're the cause of their own repressed senses. I do however know a few good people that got their head out of their arse, and won't tolerate that mode of thought.

I think everyone's equal until they prove to treat you unequal or behave with intolerance to anyone else.

A special meeting about Dallas County traffic tickets turned tense and bizarre this afternoon.
County commissioners were discussing problems with the central collections office that is used to process traffic ticket payments and handle other paperwork normally done by the JP Courts.
Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, said it seemed that central collections "has become a black hole" because paperwork reportedly has become lost in the office.
Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black, interrupted him with a loud "Excuse me!" He then corrected his colleague, saying the office has become a "white hole."
That prompted Judge Thomas Jones, who is black, to demand an apology from Mayfield for his racially insensitive analogy.
Mayfield shot back that it was a figure of speech and a science term. A black hole, according to Webster's, is perhaps "the invisible remains of a collapsed star, with an intense gravitational field from which neither light nor matter can escape."
Other county officials quickly interceded to break it up and get the meeting back on track. TV news cameras were rolling, after all.

BolshevikMuppet: Beyond that, there are any number of studies which show that even in an era lacking in overt racism, racism still exists when it comes to subtle choices, and times when an employer can choose to hire a white guy or black guy of equal qualifications. One need only check out a random sampling of EEOC complaints to see racism alive and well in economic environments.

Keep in mind that the cases the EEOC speaks of publicly (read: when the EEOC releases press releases) are the most blatant and extreme examples of discrimination on the basis that they cover... including race. Don't just Google 'EEOC race lawsuit' because you're going to find people who has called a press conference to announce their intention to file an EEOC Complaint... and, in the process, have alerted their employers very publicly of their intentions to do so.

While you're at it, look at the EEOC's Enforcement Statistics On Race-Related Charges... and realize that over 60% of the complaints of discrimination filed with the EEOC on the grounds of Race and Color are dismissed for either insufficient evidence or flat-out lying from the people who file them...

... and, by pure sheer coincidence, over 60% of the complaints for Race and Color discrimination filed with the EEOC are filed by Blacks (I can't give you the source for THIS bit of information because I'm not at work).

Oh, and those people who call press conferences to say that they're going to complain to the EEOC about their employers? EVERY SINGLE ONE THAT I'VE FOUND has been Black.

If you are using the term for a useful item in a derogatory manner; You & I are in agreement - it is a tough call (tie?).

Sorry, clown makeup and chin spinach goatees trump clunky European glasses and berets.

BolshevikMuppet: Impudent Domain: No Such Agency Quote 2010-06-12 05:25:54 AM
OK.. people still ARE racist. Racism is still a big problem for every visible minority, many of whom are also racist against each other. Non-blacks do and say terrible things to blacks in North America every day, just because they're black, and the black community still faces endemic social problems as the sad legacy of centuries of oppression.

You say all that like it is proven, but I am not so sure just how much endemic racism still exists. Sure you can find some ignorant convenience store clerk who belongs to the Klan, but that tard has no power or influence.

How much of the ills of Black society are from racism and how much are from an attitude of petty criminality, trying to game the system, and always looking to government instead of relying on yourself?

Wow. I'm sorry, man, but you're full of crap. There are self-avowed members of the KKK in the Republican party. Hell Robert Byrd (the longest-serving U.S Senator) once ran an entire chapter of the KKK in Virginia.

Beyond that, there are any number of studies which show that even in an era lacking in overt racism, racism still exists when it comes to subtle choices, and times when an employer can choose to hire a white guy or black guy of equal qualifications. One need only check out a random sampling of EEOC complaints to see racism alive and well in economic environments.

I'll ignore the whole "rugged individualist" shtick, because frankly if everyone can't see through that we're idiots. We're all the product of the environment around us. Bill Gates was successful due to the opportunities afforded to him by wealthy parents and a privileged upbringing. But, even if we accept that there are lazy, greedy, blacks who are trying to get their money for nothing (and their chicks for free), I'm going to doubt it's a racial thing as much as a "some people are like that" thing.

The whole welfare queens argument wasn't even true when Regan was pulling that bullshiat; it's certainly no more true now.


Byrd is a Democrat, there Einstein.

these minority communities need to start teaching their children to want to succeed in life instead of glorifying entertainers and criminal gang members. There is no literal translation of the phrase Uncle Tom in Hebrew or Chinese

srhp29: How many rap albums have the NAACP had pulled due to their cutting remarks against black (and any other color) women?

The NAACP is at the level of the KKK when it comes to being a racist organization.


Yes to #1, no to #2. Batting .500, still HOF eligible.

I agree. I also think that farktard is the furthest extreme of doucheyness possible.

The culture that gave us Ebonics is complaining about an innocent greeting card? The NAACP still associates itself with the word 'colored' but biatches about a greeting card? Shut the 'F' up.

Dr. Mojo PhD: Yes, because organizations like the NAACP and the UNCF which happen to be widely recognized national institutions should alter their names selected at times when "negro" and "colored" were the accepted, non-derogatory terms. Makes sense to me. I like the added touch of white victimization that you'd be on the "receiving end of a hate-crime", implying that if you called a person what is today a slur but in 1944 when the NAACP was incorporated was not, they would beat you merely and for no other reason than being white.

Has anyone pointed out that the name is racist and it epitomizes hypocrisy yet ? cool, glad of it.

when the NAACP does things like this, it severely lessens their credibility. so i like to see it.

I HATE racism, but I hate inane NAACP/Jesse/Sharpton reactionary shennanigans just as much. Both forces are working together to keep everything just as screwed up as it is today.
