I have had an absolute gutful of phrases like: "Blacks are smarter" "Latinos are smarter" "Whites are smarter" and on and on and ON.

Bull PUCKEY. An individual's intelligence is based on WHO they are (personality), WHAT they have studied, and the individual talents that they have. Not the color of their skin, their accents, nothing. It's the same as me (white) sitting down in the supreme court chambers to take up Sotomeyer's job for a day. My head would explode. By the same token, if I plopped her down in front of my computer and told her to make this 3d item, photoshop that picture, fix (random object or my VW), and then imitate Donald Duck, HER head would explode. And if you stuck both of us in an operating room with the best Asian brain surgeon you could find- well, imagine THAT outcome for yourselves.

Somewhere on the internet, is someone who imitates William Shatner. He's DARN good- and he's black. By the same token, you listen to Maurice LaMarche (white), and there's maybe subtle ones like tonal quality, but it's THE SAME FREAKING TALENT. Doesn't make a frigging difference who's what color, or what cultural background.

Too bad there's always gonna be someone who's brain is stuck on the color setting, and will never get past that.

Like I said previous post- PROVE IT. Prove someone's smarter than me just because their skin's different, their accent's different, or they came from another country. Prove I am smarter just because of MY skin color.

This is a good post. Now this I can agree with!

Star for you!

Peace!

Exactly. And its misquoted proliferation shows you just how "biased" the media is against white males.

Personally it's about time more minorities started getting a real voice in the world, and not just in a third world hellhole like most nonwhite nations. People will just have to get over the concept of white privilege and work as hard as nonwhites do to get ahead.

I hate to say it, but this is an ever increasing problem with Latino people in general. I remember a family member of mine nearly married a Puerto Rican many years ago, and I actually liked the individual, as they seemed very cool and all. However, when my family member, a fluent speaker of Spanish who lived in Madrid before, (Lol, their Espanol was better than the PR's) overheard the PR's parents talking, they were shocked at how they forcefully and irrefutably distinguished themselves as some sort of separate race from "White People". The aforementioned family member had NEVER looked upon "Latino" as being anything different than an ethnicity, which it actually is, YET, there was this progressive attitude amongst many Latinos that instead of them being defined as White, Black, Mestizo, etc., they were all creating a new universal and separate racial identity. I have to say that it is rather disturbing, and it really only takes effect within the United States, because in Cuba, Mexico, and other Latin American countries the people are still defined largely by their skin tones, whereas here in the United States they have suddenly turned such an ethnicity into a race.

Oh yeah right i am sure they could. They can't even keep their own countries above poverty level that's why they all come here. All the places they're in charge of are mostly third world. WHat an f*ing JOKE!!!!

Just so we're clear, this is about what the CNN reporter said. Not so much Sotomayor, although I think what Soto said was racist.

The reporter definitely says, "a Latina woman can make better decisions than any white man".

How in the world could you spin this to mean anything else is beyond me. If a white guy had said this about black people, we wouldn't be here parsing the statement.



She wasn't a CNN reporter. She was a guest.

"could make a better decision" only means it's possible for a latina to make a good decision. It doesn't mean that she's making a better decision BEACAUSE she's latina. Just that, it doesn't matter if she's a latina, it's still possible for her to make a better decision than a white man. I don't see this statement as racist at all, personally.

Now if she had said "any latina would make a better decision than a white man" that would be different. I would say that would be racisit.


That distinction is exactly what Republicans and Conservatives and other neer-do-wells want you not to notice or dwell on.

Of course they will overpower your statement by YELLING CATCHPHRASES LOUDLY

DRILL BABY DRILL etc.

The current administration is in power mainly because of the RACE card. President Obama got in power not only because he promised "change", which he never explained on any interviews to his fans, but a lot of Americans also voted for him ONLY because he is black. So it is not a surprise to find that Sotomayor is being considered not only because she backs the Socialist dictatorship taking place, but because she is LATINA.

BTW, I am also a LATINO-AMERICAN, and I can tell you many latinos do not like this woman at all.

And many if not most Liberals, and Democrats are so brainwashed that they believe this woman's, and Sotomayor's statements are not racist, and such people will try to claim anything, and everyt5hing to dismiss such statements...


Keep trying to bury the truth baby!!

Wonderful.

If a white person is in the media making foolish racist statements that offend people, whites are castigated as filthy racists and attacked.

If a white person complains about being racially discriminated against, whites are castigated as filthy racists and told to get over it.

Anyone see the trend?

I'd have voted for a popped whoopi cushion before I voted for anyone that supported Bush 95% of the time over his nightmarish 8 years.

(Note to Conservatives... that was McCain.)

Every Judge, especially on an appellate court is very accustomed to public speaking. This is what they do. These people have a JD and I can guarantee you as sure as the nose is on your face that they have had more than one public speaking course in college.

That statement being made;

This was no accident, not something taken out of context, or any other excuse anyone wishes to assign to it.

This was a blatantly racist statement from an obviously racist woman.

None the less, we all know how this will play out.

The media will lay their spin, and the American people will eat it up like its this morning's egg sandwich.

What happened to objectivity? Okay, lets see, we have three liberals lambasting the Republican response to Sotomayor. This is prime-time news? I think of this as a one sided carnival side show full of circus freaks. These people can actually call themselves journalist? Now if I where that show's producer, I would have gone out of my way to at least get a Republican guest to off-set that one sided tirade.

Outrageous, I really think most of the drones in this country are as dense as I have always thought. Why would they settle for this drivel and accept it as news of the day. I like to think of modern era journalism as a bunch of mini-Joseph Goebbels propagandizing their readers, listeners, and viewers. This what the communists used to call indoctrination. Mainstream America needs to stop smelling the paint and get informed.

Are we really bigots ? Aren't we allowed to have our countries for our own people?. You say we're bigots but really we're )ust embodying the same sentiments that the Africans held when they were being colonised, That the American indians had when they were being colonised, the indians and asians , the indonesians etc etc. Now its the western (white/European) countries being colonised (and yes it is colonising) by immigrants and yet we're not allowed to be against this ? Somehow because we're white we're expected to allow this ? It is nothing but pure hypocritical nonsense.

You say that your people are so hard done by, by slavery and everything, well first and foremost, you now are about 100 times better off then your brethren in Africa, so you should be thankful that your ancestors were brought over here.
Secondly, Europeans have bore witnessed to far worse things. The romans enslaved over 100 million europeans during the period of the roman empire. 60 million europeans were slaughtered by the mongols, millions more by the huns. Muslims killed and enslaved many millions aswell. 2 world wars killed untold millions of Europeans.
The fact is that you put the blame on slavery on the white man, well i hve news for you. The muslims have enslaved more africans then the europeans have. African tribes enslaved millions more, and then sold them to the Europeans and Americans so if you want someone to blame, blame your brethren in Africa.

Another thing, the vandalisation of our language to accomodate the minority peoples. Examples, First the term was Negro --> Black --> African American(To avoid offending Negro's). Then we have Mankind --> Humankind (To avoid offending Women). Midget --> Dwarf --> Vertically challenged (To avoid offending small people). Cripple --> Handicapped --> Disabled --> Physically Challenged. English Language is being vandalised out of petty fear of offending someone.

We are intellectually chained, for example with the notion of all humans are equal. Now this may be a nice thought but the reality sadly is quite different, nothing in nature is equal. It like saying a German Shepard and a sausage dog have an equal chance in a fight against each other, have an equal chance in a running race or an equal chance to survive in the cold. It is simply utter nonsense but we are indoctrinated in our schools to believe it as fact. The slogan "Strength through Diversity" is thrown at as all the time where in fact the truth is "Strength through Unity" .

Another point I would like to make is where rights go. The western world is the only place in the world where the minority groups get more rights, preferential treatment and greater benefits then the ma)ority, and in the most case indigenous groups. In England for example the minority people use to get put in front of the list for housing, Gypsies can skip the line in doctors surgeries and don't have to even make appoinments. The also have to be picked over local and otherwise deserving students in school selection because they are gypsies"Travellers". Also another outright rediculous system is affirmative action which gives beneficial treatment because of race and not merits.

There is a culture also that white man is always guilty, his responsible for all past ills and should make up for them. If a white man commits a crime against some one of colour it is a hate crime and down right racist, if it is a person of colour doing it to the white then it is just a case of circumstance and wrong place wrong time. This is why that soyotoma comments were considered acceptable. The UN an organisation who is against racism lets thousands of white people perish in the racist onslaught that they suffer from in Africa simply because of the colour of their skin, the other sick thing is our governments who are suppose to protect us are very quiet on this subject.

Africans have a habit of pushing the blame on Africa's misfortune and sorry state on at the moment on the Europeans, claiming it is because of colonialism and slavery. Well the evidence contradicts this statement placing the fault entirely on the Africans for their sorry state. Rhodesia "Zimbabwee" and South Africa for example were very successful nations, with peace and order and good national growth. But when they got self rule, their nations have simply gone down.

My second last point is the racism against whites in America with the Jena 6 case. This was a clear case of an unprovoked pack attack on a completely innocent boy who had no involvment at all with those animals, and they savagely beat him up, hospitalising him. This outrageous attack could have killed this poor boy, and the perpetrators should have recieved the harshest of punishments. In a case which should have been clear to the American public as a group of discusting criminals against an honest citisen was distorted and transformed. So instead of being viewed as criminals, they were seen as victims against an institutionally racist American legal system. A case of Black vs White, and you can tell which side the vast majority chose. So while this poor boy was brutalised by these thugs, everyone chose to side with them, and in a grose misuse of celebrity and power rappers, celebrities and rights groups band together to raise money and get these criminals off. Now you can be absolutely guaranteed that if it was 6 white boy's who brutalised a black youth the public and celebrities and rights groups would have screamed bloody murder, and the white thugs would have gotten years upon years in gaol. Which suffice to say is incredibly racist in itself and absolutely unjust and abhorred.

The last point I would like to make is statisticly speaking Europeans and people of European descent will become minorities in every single western country (Even those they are indiginous too) within 50 years, and within a centuary will make up less the 0.9% of the worlds population, which suffice to say is quite damning as in 1900 we made up 33%. I think it's about time to wake up and look at what is happening, if we don't do something we WILL die out. The time for change is now... For if we don't we will be cursed to walk the halls of oblivion for eternity!!!

There can be a black pride, an asian pride, a mexican pride, even a gay pride.BUT as soon as anyone yells White Pride, then everyone yells racist and crusifies them. Just goes to show how equal our society is

Being born with white skin is the biggest curse a person can be born with in this day and age.

Why judge a whole race by the actions of a few?

Makes no sense to me.

There is bigots in every race. I dont like black bigots, I dont like white bigots. I like NO bigots.

We are ALL equal.

And I'm sorry but I am half white and my skin is white and I CERTAINLY do not feel cursed to have white skin. That is rediculous. No one is holding me back from doing what I want.

WE ARE ALL EQUAL!

When the only source for your surveys or studies is The National Review, you're going to have a difficult time finding any information that contradicts your opinion.

The study you cite was conducted by the Media Research Center (MRC), which is a conservative content analysis organization based in Alexandria, Virginia, founded in 1987 by L. Brent Bozell III. Its stated mission, according to its website, is "to bring balance and responsibility to the news media", and the MRC catalogs and reports on what it asserts to be widespread liberal media bias in the United States press.

So, you argue this organization can be trusted as a disinterested and independent source of information? Their own mission statement includes a preconceived notion that that the media is biased against them and this merely needs to be proved.

We have no idea how they set their standards or how they measured whether those standards had been satisfied or not satisfied.

A lion and a Flea are both animals, but they are in no way the same. If humans were the same Europeans would not have been able to conquer 97% of the planet. The British would not have been responsible for 60% of the inventions.
Nature is not equal and neither are humans. The sooner you realise that the sooner you will be able to set yourself free.

Thats nice. Thats your opionon and I don't care about it.

Am I not equal with you because I am half black?

Thats rediculous and most people don't think like you.

How DARE you say me, my children and wife arent equal because we are different. You are SCUM.

Tell me what have you accomplished in life thats so great? Have you served your country in war? Do you work hard to support a family? Have you overcome countless obstacles to get to the point in life you are now? Because I have done all of those.
