When did it become popular to post asinine arguments in defense of random bigots whenever one of these jerks is called out for making offensive
remarks publicly? (2008?) It never fails, some prominent ahole or one of his staffers tweets a bigoted sentiment or goes on some hare-brain tirade and
as soon as there is a post about it, a flood of deniers rush in with the same tired arguments and fake outrage.
"Why is it fair that black people can call white people 'cracker' or 'honky' !?"
When exactly was the time when white folks where the victim of oppression at the hands of minorities in America? Where's the history of
institutionalized racism against white people? When were we, as a race, disenfranchised in this country? Forbidden from owning land? When did white
people have to fight against racists for their civil rights?
When was the last time a white person called a "honky" let alone offended by being called one? Oh no, please don't call me a "cracker" that might lead
to cops harassing me for my skin color! I might be denied a loan! My affluent neighbors may see "whitey" move in next door and lament to themselves,
"oh great, there goes the neighborhood!"
STOP PRETENDING THAT WHITE PEOPLE ARE PERSECUTED
What a bunch of disingenuous whiners!
While I'm at it, let me extend this rant to some other unjustified blabbering:
It's now all the rage for Christians to claim that they are being persecuted and to say indefensibly stupid things like, "Muslims have an elevated
status in this country." Who the hell honestly believes that?
The gay agenda perpetrated by "militant gays"? It doesn't freakin' exist. It's called people fighting for their civil rights and the ability to be who
they are without fear of reprisal. Not being allowed to discriminate against the gay people in society is NOT a form of persecution. Being suspended
from your reality TV show or fired for tweeting stupid bigoted things is NOT persecution — it's called a morals clause.
Is there a white TV network? If there were, would it be considered by all mainstream media to be racist?
Is there a united white college fund? There actually was a few years back, it got canned for being racist, was even denied government funding for
being racist, but the UNCF(united negro college fund) isnt....very telling.
Is there a NAAWP? No, even if there were, it would be racist.
Is there ever aloud in modern America to be a "White only neighborhood"?, There are "black only" communities all over the country.
It is racist if there is preferential treatment of any race over another at any time for any reason ever.
Blacks were not treated worse than any other race throughout history. Irish were treated way worse even when slavery existed in America than slaves
were. They arent whining. They arent the source of most crimes and murders.
Blacks culture the world over is a fail. I dont know exactly what turned one of the earliest advanced cultures on the planet into the current state of
affairs for them, but black culture the entire planet over is self destructive, and criminal by the laws of most countries.
White culture the world over has flourished. Even when they send their criminals to a barren island, they turned it into a modern day global power in
Australia. They also currently hold the reins of power for the entire world, having created and championed its greatest creation, democracy.
Asians, this group isnt so easy to compress into a single unit, they have a very widely ranged and diverse history. Suffice to say they are great at
solving problems, even threw extreme sacrifice and turmoil, just look at the great wall of China. They have one of the oldest and most noble cultures
on earth. There is simply too much from too many differing cultures in this group to get into, I will simply say, they will not ever fail as a
culture, because the harder their times, the harder their people always become.
Latin Americans/American Indians have a very rich heritage. They all value family, almost to the extreme by some cultural standards. This is to be
commended and celebrated in my oppinion. They have a very spiritual culture, even to this day, despite the white cultures attempted, and near
successful destruction of it.
Arabs/Middle Eastern culture....just blah... They were at one point by far the most advanced civilization on the planet, being one of the first to
quantify ZERO. Discovering the magnifying powers of the convex and concave lens.....they learned so much so fast so early, only to lose it and adopt
religious zealotry over the science that originally propelled them to such great and early heights.....I hold them to the same standard as the Black
cultures of the world. Backward, self destructive, useless in carrying man forward into the future.
Indians( the real ones not the American Indians)....just WOW, these guys have such an old and amazing culture, I have plenty of complaints, but they
are working them out at present very well. Not as fast as I may like, but still fast as the world works. Great in the sciences, great culture, great
in religious practices. I wish more cultures would take some of their better aspects to heart( minus the cast system that still exists despite laws
In short, I may sound racist, but could one tell what race? I named and emulated many traits I see as positive in many cultures. I also denounced some
because of their obvious shortcomings. Is this racist or just reality?
It is a reality that in America Black culture is mirroring African black culture. These were at one time the best and brightest on the
The arabs.....basically the same thing, they were at one point the top of the pile.......what happened?
