Just to set the stage, I'm an atheist who is extremely liberal/libertarian.


That said who ever decided that being a racist was the worst thing you could be?


How is being a nonviolent racist worse then being a wife beater, child abuser, drug addict, theif, hell even a murderer in most cases?

How does that make any sense?


How is having an admittedly horrible world view worse then people who actually physically hurt and kill people?

Is a racist who loves his wife and child and spends his life taking care of them, worse then a liberal who cheats on his wife and ignores his children?


Even from my anti conservative world view this is ridiculous. It seems like any crime besides child molestation and racism is forgivable, but a racist is a racist for life. Completely forgetting almost everyone's grand parents were horrible people by today's standards.


Thoughts?

They are all bad, but can't really be compared.

Who told you that being a nonviolent racist was worse than being a wife beater, child abuser, drug addict, thief, or a murderer and why did you believe them?

Society bro. Look at the news. It's not hard to see you have to have blinders on to not see that. bet you a neighbor with a white pride ttattoo will make news before a rapist moving into the neighborhood does.

I don't have cable does that count?

I see your edit>>


If that does count then an easy solution for you would be to drop cable and live happier.

Racism is all about pointing the finger at "Whitey" and laying blame, if I went to Court and laid charges on someone of non white colour with racism it would get laughed out of there. So were is the fairness here ? racism is a word that means accusing a "White" of racial bigotry, the reverse is ok and condoned by the system.

Until a different race is burning down my business and house because of what someone else did. Which in case you didn't notice with no cable necessary is running rampant people thinking they have claims over others.

You're right I haven't noticed.

Like I said I don't have cable(it is a choice) so the talking heads opinions have no sway over me.

If you don't like what they are saying then simply turn it off.


Seems pretty simple to me.

All of those other things already generate money via the justice system. They are working towards making anything that could be considered racist illegal to generate more slave labor via prison, and more tax money via courts. After they do that they will add sexism, agism, weight-ism, etc. Soon free speech will be completely abolished, and afterwards free thought will be assaulted.

How so, aren't sex offenders often forced to register?

I've known people with white pride tatto's that never made the news.

Seems like you've tried to bundle racists into a "loving and non violent" box...


Guffaw!!!



I want to tear into your post, with a stupendous amount of logic...

But logic is kinda dictating that you deserve no response to such a bait of a thread!




I will say this...


My dad cheated, split from my mum from an early age, didn't really see him too often...


& yet I still respect him more than I would if he'd stuck around to indoctrinate me with hatred and a superiority complex towards another race...



So you can keep your hypothetical loving racist father...

I'll stick with mine...
Who despite being almost non existent... at least taught me racism is disgusting.


& I've never heard anyone say that racism is "worse" than murder or rape or any other hyperbolic example you come up with...


Ciao!

So, because I don't watch cable news and let them get me worked up over irrelevant crap at their whim you say I am sticking my head in the sand.

HAHA so be it then. At least I am able to live my life without being told how I should feel about it by people who couldn't care less that I even exist(i.e. tv personalities).


Have fun with your cable news that seems to be working great for you. Don't worry tomorrow they will give you another opinion.

It's not about cable television. I don't have that, haven't had cable for twelve years now. And I see clearly what the OP is referencing. It's not about talking heads either.

It's about an agenda. Pure and simple.

Race is the best way a true racist has to divide the people.

You could be fired from your job and shunned by your community. If a CEO makes racist statements it's news worthy. If the same guy beats his kids. No one cares.


Off subject... But I think the problem in society is that we glorify the good buisness person. While ignoring the good father. If a guy or girl is bad at the 9 to 5 thing but are excellent parents, they are bums and worthless. But if your good with money, but a crap husband, father and friend. Your an upstanding member of society.

Like I said I don't know what you guys are even talking about.

I guess I didn't answer my door or phone when they came a knockin' or calling to stir me up with some agenda.

I missed out on it, but I am glad I did.

my mom is a rather ignorant racist. She is a very lovely mother, but it was not hard for me to see by middle school how ignorant of a racist she was. Funny she likes to accuse an entire people based on their skin color who she never even socializes with of rampant criminal behavior, but the only two times my mother was a victim of a crime was by light skinned Americans.

Rather funny. I actually have friends who are rather racist, they are light skinned Americans of European ancestry. I dont hate them because they are racist. In fact their ignorance is rather entertaining even as I point it out to them. And the funny truth, many racists actually have really good friends that are of the race they claim the harbor ill will towards. Such is life.

I wont refuse to chill with a person if they are racist, but I would hardly take anything they say seriously.

I think I may actually be coming around to bringing my mother to the light, but she is a stubborn lady I tell you.

That's just the opposite side of the same coin. Saying people who play the race card are the real racists. When playing the race card when unrelated is a scam. Not some strange way they are being racist in return.
