theknuckler_33: STFU Matthews.
Tyee: Chris Mathews doesn't speak for me, please people, whether your black, white, purple, green, orange (NJ.), red, polka-dotted, whatever... Chris Mathews does not speak for me and never has or will. I'll speak for myself.
BMulligan: I suggest you learn the difference between "your" and "you're."
Tyee: BMulligan: I suggest you learn the difference between "your" and "you're."Thanks, I saw that mistake after I posted. You should also chastise me for not using the always available preview function.And thank you for helping me to realize what people will or might possibly be thinking about me because my sloppiness in written language.You really should wear tights and a cape, maybe with a big "G" on your chest for grammar. Then again, maybe you do.
phaseolus: Silly old man.As for myself, maybe I have a fine mind and a good heart. Maybe I don't. I like to think I do, but that's for others to judge.I believe everyone's due a certain base level of respect and good manners upon first meeting, so I give everyone that. I try to speak and act with the knowledge that I don't *know* anyone else's history and experiences, because one thing I *do* know is that if I whitemansplain to someone that the world works a certain way when they probably know for a fact that the world most certainly works some other way, I'll rightly be judged an arrogant idiot. I don't worry about making faux pas, if they have good hearts and fine minds they'll a.) let it slide and b.) I'll probably learn something interesting and I'll know enough not to make it again.This strategy seems to work pretty well.I've assumed for the last few decades that if I go around apologizing for all my fellow white people all the time, people will judge me to be a patronizing twit. The only white person I can really represent is myself.
Frank N Stein: White guilt is one of the favorite hobbies of the liberal.
Facetious_Speciest: Frank N SteinAre those people farking serious?
Pants full of macaroni!!: Facetious_Speciest: Frank N SteinAre those people farking serious?Yes, and since Liberals are a hivemind, they are representative of ALL Liberals.

markfara: theknuckler_33: STFU Matthews.Interesting. That tends to be the reaction in my household within the first three minutes of any Matthews-conducted "interview".
captmingus: On behalf of the more than 50% of white Americans whose ancestors arrived in the US after the civil war I wish to thank you Mr Mathews!.....still don't feel a lick of guilt though
buckler: Facetious_Speciest: Frank N SteinAre those people farking serious?I can sort of understand the impetus behind it (gaining perspective and empathy and whatnot), but that still seems a bit bizarre. It reminded me of an incident several years ago, in which Colonial Williamsburg decided to hold a reenactment of a slave auction. Certain members of the black community were up in arms (as well as some whites), saying that it was a tawdry bit of exploitation for tourist cash. The detractors were all invited to attend and monitor the event, and they all walked away with minds changed; apparently the performers pulled no punches in the reenactment, and showed it for the horror it was. As I recall, a good number of the audience were weeping while watching it, and gained a bit of new-found understanding. A much better approach if you ask me.
Johnny_Whistle: captmingus: On behalf of the more than 50% of white Americans whose ancestors arrived in the US after the civil war I wish to thank you Mr Mathews!.....still don't feel a lick of guilt thoughBecause, as we all know, the civil war signaled THE END OF ALL RACISM, BIGOTRY, AND OPPRESSION.
Rann Xerox: 1. Build a spaceship.2. Tie Chris Matthews and Bill O'Reilly into the cockpit seats with ballgags on their faces.3. Set the controls for the heart of the sun.4. The whole f*cking planet profits!Newsbusters still sucks.
