Judging someone based upon the color of their skin is wrong!

No sh!t Sherlock?

Nope I didn't miss the point. You are implying that I am so scared because of the possibility that people might be racist.

Not possibility or might.

There ARE racists out there in the world. Plenty of them. But none of them justify raising the next generation to also be racist because of it.

I meant the possibility that people I meet might be racist.
Anyway of course I agree with your statement. There are racists and it's wrong. I kept saying that over and over again here in this thread.

You also said what the OP of the article said wasn't racist, which it obviously is.

If people can't even agree on the obvious examples of racial prejudicial views, what chance is there really to improve it?

The author of that article is a piece of garbage, who is doing his kids no favors by asking such an incredibly STUPID question. His kids will be racist, just as he is.

When my kids were growing up, I told them to choose their friends based solely on their character and how much fun they had together playing. That worked out really well.

What is happening now is the continual push for a race war, and they will continue to print and put out this steaming pile of crud until people start to snap en masse. It's sad, really. We were doing so well, and then we elected a racist traitor. Not Trump. Obama. He brought all the hate and superficial judgement based on skin color, and for that, there should be a special place in hell for him.

The way I see it is that he wanted his children to be wary of racists, especially the white supremacists.
Parents teach their children all kinds of crap and nobody bats an eye. I'm sure many paranoid posters here teach their children to be paranoid of others. Fundies teach all kind of crap to their children as well. Nobody bats an eye.

Now who's the paranoid one?

Here you are making all kinds of accusations about how people here are without any real proof of anything except your own feelings on the matter.

You are right about one thing. That is paranoia. Your own.

I think you read my comment wrong. I didn't make any accusation. I merely said that I was sure due to the nature of this site. We do have paranoid posters here.

Then why are you making excuses and spent how many pages defending the POS who wrote this racist opinion piece?

That's not what he said. Read it again.

They sure do. There are assholes in all colors. And as soon as they move from being a parent in their own home to being an op-ed writer for a paper with a circulation of millions people will call them out on it, too.

Because I don't read the article that way. So no excuses. As I have stated repeatedly I see your point and view and I agree with you. Why is that so hard to understand?

But even a child’s joy is not immune to this ominous political period. This summer’s images of violence in Charlottesville, Va., prompted an array of questions.

That is in the very first paragraph. Do you disagree with that? Aren't children allowed to make questions?

What a C word.

Really, what do her kids have to do with her self justified hatred of an entire people she never met?

Racist garbage.

Make questions, or ask them? You're allowed to do your thing in ATS threads, much as children who make messes, and we put up with it. Especially beating a dead horse into dust, that one NEVER gets old.

White Supremacists? Nazis? What the......seriously. Like flies at a picnic. It's a sad article, you're the only one defending it. That should tell you a lot....um, well it tells us what we already know.

They asked question after someone mows people down with a car and gets out yelling Allah Snackbar too. Would it have been fair for me to start teaching my kid to be wary of the little Muslim children on the bus because of that?

I mean, kids ask questions ... right?
