instead of condoning it, why dont you talk about something else?
His own statements prove themselves wrong if you have any decency.

You want to prove a racist wrong? Let them keep talking.

I don't condone it, but there is certainly an ounce of truth to it.

Why not simply point out the successful black African countries?

yes, but sometimes even the village idiot can have a profound moment that everyone should respect.

the man makes a good point, i think he is trash just like the rest of the people like him, but that doesn't make it impossible for him to make a good point every once in a while.


yep, that man is hypocrite

First off I am not obsessed with race.

Second it is disingenious at the very least that mush loosebowels comments were not about race.

that big fat junkie is a bottom feeder... what do you expect?

No matter if you are talking about the mid-westerners dealing with these floods or the citizens of new Orleans after Katrina any description of them is painting with the broad brushstrokes of gross generalizations.

People are not just poor or black or middle class or white and they do not behave in stereotypical ways... each is an individual and deserves the respect given to any individual.

To do anything less is a grave misjustice.

As I understand it, beer is not only nutritious and delicious, it definitely helps in a crisis.


Seriously, I think these people were left high and dry, and got really angry about it. Look at any group that is unable to get their basic needs met because of whatever reason, including prejudice - historically the Irish, the Jewish, the Italian. They engaged in forming illegal systems (Organized Crime, the Mafia, etc.) to get what they needed and wanted that the legal system refused them. They rejected the system in favor of their own. I think certain racial and ethnic grous are now doing the same thing, through gang activity.

For those days in NO, I think the same thing happened.

what i find most disturbing about the whole race thing and people using slavery as an excuse to whine about something is this:

Blacks were most definately NOT the first, or only race to have ever been enslaved by another race. yet AFAIK they are the ONLY one to expect special treament for it.

it just annoys me sometimes that they think they have the market cornered on oppression

Ok I buy your line of reasoning. MSM is always reporting things that are not true. I wont believe any thing else I read and hear about the events in NOLA before and aftter Katrina. I will agree its all horse hockey.

Now consider for a moment this assumption. We are not to believe the stories reported about NOLA. That the MSM propogates lies. The MSM slants the story. The MSM bends the truth. The MSM propagates a hidden agenda. Which one of the two sides of this story are we to believe. It seems to me that the MSM is not in the busienss of "reporting news" anymore. The MSM makes up news. Ill agree with you.

Now try to tell me all the news from the MSM I here regarding the 08 presidental election is true! Obamas' past and motives are questioned and its racism? Mccains past and motives get questioned and Obama and progerressives / socialist are just damn good politicians for going after the tuff issues. HMMMMMMM. Let see now, we dont belive the media right? So no problem right? And how do you explain that, since its racist to draw contrast on one race vs another when it comes to factual evidence.?
Wow! I see now. Thanks for waking me up to this hidden agenda by the MSM. I only have one problem left to solve, If the all the events surrounding NOLA/Katrina are raced based, who willl be responsible if Obama is president and it happens again?

Its difficult when men stumble over the truth, but most just pick themselves up and carry on as if nothing ever happened........

The descendants of former slaves in America all have the idea that they have the market cornered on oppression! You've met them all and spoken to them about this and can assure yourself that this is an honest assessment? With all due respect, I tend to doubt that you have the information necessary to substantiate that kind of statement.

Lets say it out loud. Some do not want to believe that there is bad behavior in the Midwest because we are all nice shiny white folk up here with some genetically programmed "work ethic" (obviously not true), while the majority of the good victims of Katrina are, well, not bright, shiny, or white. That, my friend, is racism.

i don't have to have met them to know this. i know that i have seen countless african americans kicking and screaming because they didn't get the job, or they didn't get into this school or that school. and they scream for affirmative action, as if they reason they were overlooked was because of race, instead of it being based on their abilites etc...

im not sure what you mean by what you said. im not sitting here saying they ALL act like it (after re-reading the statement it was sort of a blanket one.) but then again, they generally tend to NOT act like that until they see it as an alternative to sucking it up and pushing forward.

people like jesse jackson and al sharpton prove my point. ANY time something bad happening to a african american shows up in the mass media they step in and turn it into some kind of racial battle. and they rally, and act like they are MLK (except they are doing the exact opposite of what he wanted)

i will try to find the article, but a while ago there was a pair of spanish people who were breaking into a house in Houston texas, well the next door neighbor heard and saw them and called the cops, the police were taking a long time to get there and blah blah, he ended up going outside, and as the moved towards him he fired and killed both of them with a shotgun. not more than a few days after that happened Jessie Jackson was there claiming that they were racially charged murders (even though they were from Cuba i believe) he claimed they were blacks, and painted the picture that the elderly gentlement was basically a racist xenophobe and killed them only because they were of a different color than him.

So from what I read here we have two standards... A lower moral standard for Katrina victims and a higher one for the Iowa victims... I am glad I understand now...

I will say that if you look at the unemployment rate of African-Americans, and that rate is devoted to those who are actively seeking work, you will understand that they are in fact discriminated against in the workplace and elsewhere. This would explain the need for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title VII. The fact of racism is really no longer debated by legislators - the debate is what to do about it. But I am not going to debate this. That would be pointless.

I love the extent these people go to "hide" what is a blatantly racist attitude...



i don't have to have met them to know this. i know...


Really?

You know what that means? That they know that their attitude is inherently wrong and try to hide the fact but their words betray them.

Of course mush loosebowels is a racist... hell he got fired after his first and only broadcast on ESPAN (I believe) for saying something seriously offensive about black athletes. I will look up the exact words.

Of course his response was he had been misunderstood... of course he had been perfectly clear... yet I am sure there were fools who ran to his defense.



(CNN) -- Amid a storm of controversy over his racially charged comments on a weekend TV show, conservative commentator and radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh announced on Thursday that he had resigned from his post at ESPN.

Limbaugh said on Thursday he stepped down late Wednesday from the show "Sunday NFL Countdown" to protect the network from the uproar caused by his statement that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was overrated because the media wanted to see a black quarterback succeed.

His comments were disingenuous? He didn't mention race, you did.

You have such a racial chip on your shoulder you are attempting to see racism where it doesn't exist.

You see race in everything. You are in fact obsessed with it.

Incidentally, I really hate you for making me defend him.

You consider that comment "seriously offensive"????????

Kidding right?

Are hotels racist for wanting Katrina "refugees" to leave 2 and a half years after the storm?

You may have to hate me too, because Rush specifically and repeatedly referenced race. He said:

"During Sunday's ESPN broadcast of their NFL Countdown program (9/28/03), Limbaugh was talking about Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, who is black:

Limbaugh: "I don't think he's been that good from the get-go. I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL. I think the media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. They're interested in black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well. I think there's a little hope invested in McNabb and he got a lot of credit for the performance of his team that he really didn't deserve. The defense carried this team."
