"Cannot swords be turned to plowshares? Can we and all nations not live in peace? In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world."
- Ronald Reagen
Address to United Nations General Assembly, (21 September 1987)

Frankly, I hope the human race is better than this, and that we can find peace (without an outside influence) with all of our brothers and sisters.

Have to say to OP that I don't think that your confrontation approach towards people you disagree with do you, or race relations any good, instead it just stirs things up - which is after all what I thought you were against.

My own opinion is that the fault lies on both sides, both on those dependent on using their skin colour as an excuse for lack of achievement and on those that harbour racist views.

I hope that anybody with an ounce of dignity, no matter how angry at their 'own', would not stand for racism, or justify the views of racists because of the behaviour or a minority that share their skin colour.

I hate that just cause I'm white, black people assume I'm racist. I mean, I worked hard and got to a higher position, but majority I come in contact with (at work) won't follow my directives and think when I use the term "people," its a derogative statement directed at their race, when in actuality, its a term that describes any group of human beings. If you expect a racist comment from an individual before you have a conversation with them, you, in turn, are Racist. Theres a lot of things I'm sure everyone can say they hate eventually. Just ignore it and be a better person and move on and extend a bridge. Don't be a hater.

I'm tired of hearing how conservatives want to keep the black man down, when in fact I find the exact opposite.

Why is it that liberals will deny the fact that Martin Luther King was a God-fearing conservative?

Why is it that these people are totally unaware that Mary Sanger promoted abortion to keep the "undesirable population of Harlem under control?


My brothers and sisters need to open their eyes and see this grotesque manipulation for what it is - a perpetuation of racism!

Seriously? you claim that the liberals want to "keep the black man down"? if I read that correctly. Yet, If our nations government whether right or left, really wanted to "keep the black man down" then how would hip-hop be so popular? why would there be so many famous and skilled black athletes in sports? how would any black individual have a decent paying job?

You need to open your eyes, stop whining about racism when all anybody has to do these days to get someone in trouble is pull the racism card. People can get fired for that, and you don't actually need proof, all you need is a CEO who would rather ere on the safe side. Your rant is about as ridiculous as the idea of reparations.

Come back when you open your mind a bit, or at the very least, your eyes.
Hip-hop is popular for EXACTLY the reasons the OP states. Things like welfare, food stamps, medicare etc... are designed to keep poor people subservient to the state. The majority of black people are poor. It perpetuates itself, by design.

Benjamin Franklin once stated, "When people realize that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the Republic. Guess what people realize? Guess where this country is headed...

Typical East Coast Liberals for you. The American liberal is a grotesque and hypocritical beast, usually filled with smug arrogance. The East Coast Liberal also hates the white working class, especially in the South.

Look at guys like Bill Maher, you can see the ugliness and hatred.

This thread doesn't help the matter.

Racism is like a cat begging for food...if we all would just stop paying attention to it it would go away. But for TPTB, they love anything that seperates us as humans. And unfortunately we have people that buy into racism and classism.

Like many I am fed up of the race card, I'm not saying it does not happen and from my view as a UK person looking at the states it definitely does happen there BUT to what extent is it genuine ie how much is 100% racism and how much is it just the race card being played.

Here in the UK the white vs black thing is much less of an issue, we do have race issues but less so between whites and blacks, normally its towards certain economic migrants to here.

But still its tried from time to time, we have a black girl with two young children just moved in, she has a sister who visits also with 2 young kids, now these two refuse to show the other tenants the same respect they want, they have loud parties, the kids scream in the block at all times of the day and night and they like to row with people.

But in the midst of a row the other night the sisters decided to play the race card, "do you have a problem with colour" was screamed at one tenant, at no point had race, colour or creed been mentioned but the card was played, at which point I laughed at her and said "are you seriously trying that one?"

The reply, "well you can ##SNIP## white boy"

Oh the irony...

The card was also played by many thugs during the riots here a few weeks ago, apparently these young thugs who were better dressed than me, sporting gold and watches I could never afford were "hard done by", "oppressed" and various other get out claims rather than admit to being lazy vandals and common criminals.

We must deal with serious racism where it happens but we must stamp out the culture of using the race card, for me "is it because I'm black, white, Mexican, African etc etc" cuts no weight for me.

Boy are you a sad little man.

Actually he is a classic example of what you are trying to point out.

The liberals think they OWN the minorities because they BOUGHT them with political handouts. If a black or minority "leaves the herd" he is met with venomous attacks. "How dare you leave the cages we built for you!"

That attitude shows that they do not consider you a thinking independent human being but as a "Cattle/Chattel" to be herded and controlled.

Here is more evidence of that cold blooded point of view from a democratic think tank, the Blair-Rockefeller Poll (and yes Winthrop Rockefeller was a brother of David Rockefeller)

2012 Battlefield

Overall, the results of this survey indicate that the traditional base of support among older voters that Democrats have relied upon since the partisan realignment following the New Deal continues to weaken. While older voters continue to vote in high percentages, compared to younger cohorts, clear support for the Democratic Party is confined largely to African Americans. While older Hispanics generally favored the Democratic Party, they showed substantial willingness to vote for Republican Senatorial candidates in the 2010 midterm election.

Further, the traditional Democratic support among older Caucasians continues to decline, particularly among older Caucasians living in the South. If these trends continue, the 2012 presidential election will require the Democratic Party to continue to bring young, and often unreliable, voters to the polls. Further, the Democratic Party must continue to make inroads into the growing Latino/Hispanic population. If the GOP is able to maintain its grip on older voters in the South, that tend to not only vote at high rates, but are also overwhelmingly conservative, Republican and willing to support GOP candidates the Democratic presidential campaign strategy will be forced to continue building winning coalitions without the assistance of most of the southern states. With growing populations and over one-third of the Electoral College votes needed to win the Electoral College, losing support among the elderly is an important trend that scholars must continue to monitor....

The Blair-Rockefeller poll also uses trick questions with the words "FEDERAL GOVERNMENT" to characterize the Tea Party as being "Racists"

he Tea Party was called "Racist" because of their response to questions beginning with "Do you think it is the responsibility of the federal government to make sure that..." Poll

Maxwell’s report, based on the poll titled “Tea Party Distinguished by Racial Views and Fear of the Future" even characterize Tea Party Members as "politically sophisticated" and "over 45" with "more education".

Given what is happening in the political arena if you are "politically sophisticated" and "over 45" with "more education". Of course you can see the SHTF on the horizon.
Even my very optimist Hubby is seeing TSHTF and that it is caused by government/Corporate/Banker collusion.

However the liberals will continue to muddy the waters by screaming racist and we must have "entitlements" instead of joining with conservatives to attack the REAL villains, half of whom are sitting in the Democratic Party.

...Given that we do all bleed red at the end of the day, I do have to say that most (not all) african americans do pull the race card quite frequently.

Of course they, do especially if it gives them an advantage in getting a job or getting out of trouble or getting out of doing hard work. When you hand someone a critical advantage in life you expect them NOT to use it???

In this day and age if a black man were to move into the deep south he would more than likely be made to feel at home, however if a white family decided to move into south central they would likely be murdered.

I agree with you based on living in the "Combat Zone" in Boston and in the South. I see a heck of a lot less racism and a lot more friendliness and good manners here in the South.

edit to add. Boston is the home of really rabid socialist/communist/liberals and the most unfriendly people I have ever met. So much for the "Sweetness and Light" and "We are all brothers" crap. Nasty and narrow minded is a better characterization. And no I am not a bible toting Christian Conservative, but an Agnostic

I can agree to disagree with this threads subject matter, but while many always blame some other group for their plight in life, I ask myself as others do why the black race has allowed itself to be the race that so many dislike or disapprove of?

When I say dislike or disapprove of, I refer to how the black race has willingly and whole hog embraced a life style that is called hip hop, with baggy pants and a gangster look with gold chains and hats that are always worn differently. Everyone wants to be a rap star or a basketball legend and yet this limitation is never complained about by the black race because of course it profits those that support it and that is how the slave mentality begins.

The black music industry is intended to keep blacks separate but not equal. It is a slave mentality that has kept the black race appearing as the negative blight of America that blacks seem to accept while they blame whitey for all their folly in life.

Ask a black person who they fear most when they go to an ATM after dark? Does fear come to mind if they see a white man in a suit and tie or is it the black street thugs that prey on innocent victims? Most honest black people will tell you they fear their own race more than whitey and I say that is part of the bigger problem that blacks refuse to tackle and deal with within black communities.

This problem will come home to roost as soon as civil and social barriers break down after some national disaster. This is when black on black violence will become the very first victims to social chaos, long before they go after whitey. First they will rape and murder other blacks in black communities like the immoral animals they will be acting like and only when they go to fight whitey will they find out that its not going to be like in the movies.

Black culture today appears to promote a complete lack of any self discipline, a complete lack of desire for any real education, a lack of promoting learning and using proper English as a language, a lack of moral understanding of right and wrong, a lack of wanting to do anything in life except complain and ask for hand outs is not what the black race should be about, but yet society has allowed the gangster music and gangster life style to permeate through out all black communities without anyone in the black community trying to put a stop to the madness that blacks willingly participate in every day of their lives.

Zionist Hollywood types and Zionist Music Companies get rich off the black musicians even though most rappers cant play an instrument. They are built up, promoted and used to make money. Nothing more. That is what rap music is all about and while the music industry pays millions of dollars to talentless phony stars, the black community is brainwashed into believing that every young boy or young girl should grow up to be a rap star or hip hop gangster while spewing obscenities about whitey and the slave masters. What a joke that really is on the black community.

Blacks want the easy lifestyle of the rich and famous, yet every segment of our society where blacks are promoted are all controlled by white Zionist. Football, Basketball, Boxing, Track and Field, are all sports endeavors and most know that professional sports is just another slave industry where blacks are exploited for money by whites and even black managers and owners.

Since they pay their slaves handsomely, most blacks go along to get rich while caring less that they are supporting a slave system intended to keep blacks in their place and to keep blacks from ever achieving self excellence in a society that uses self discipline and excellence as a measure of a persons worth.

This is why when a black sports legend or music star is created, they destroy them with drugs, they expose the spouse abuse to their white wives and get them involved in criminal gangster enterprises like dog fighting for big dollars. Is it any wonder society sees blacks as promoted failures that are encouraged to be as ignorant as they want to be? Why is there no outcry in the black community over such tactics? Why indeed.

Where is the focus on blacks helping to better their race instead of destroying it for a few dollars? Nowhere and that is just another example of why blacks are perceived as a different race, foreign to what America stands for.

It is this negative racial perception that feeds the color distinction and those that are honest with themselves will see it. I personally don't like it myself, but I see it and understand it for what it is.

Yes, I can agree that we should not judge others by the color of their skin, but you see, its much more than just skin color. Its about attitude, and believing that self discipline and self achievement matters. Without it, any race is going to be frustrated with the solutions that supposedly come from politicians and from community organizers who openly promote a separate nation for blacks all together while never discussing the hard issues that bring down the black communities.

While white people may be the white devils that most black people talk about, the black race should look at itself and realize that the black race is filled with those that appear worse at times and no better than whites.

There are even racists among blacks who judge other blacks who are lighter or darker and that is a known fact, so no race is above the ignorance of such behavior.

It is time to see that being a willing slave to a system of exploitation can never be ceased or corrected until blacks see that they have a lot of work to do within the black community, long before they should go tell the white man how badly they feel they have been abused by the white system of racism that has become a permanent fixture in our society.

Not until blacks take some pride in America as Americans will there ever be a changing of attitudes. Until then, all I can say is that yes, blacks should not be judged by the color of their skin, but something tells me its a lot more than just skin color and anyone who does not acknowledge the other negatives that the black race promotes and lives by will there ever be an acceptance of blacks as equals. because so far, blacks have only proven they want to be separate and not part of anything that might require self discipline or self excellence in achievements other that rap music and dressing like gangsters to the world.

By the way, I am not white, so if you give me your typical black anger, then it would only go to show how correct I am about unneeded black behavior and the lack of complete understanding about what is really the cause of blacks being judged so harshly in our society.

I understand what I know because I have lived a life that has taught me that self discipline and self achievement was all it took to get respect from white people. While some never gave it, they were the hard core whites that don't like anyone who isn't white and yet I found over time that these negative types were in the minority and as such, most whites accepted me for what I could do and how I could contribute.

Without being able to contribute to the society we live in, we will always be blaming someone else when that blame should begin at home. That's how I see it and if anyone disagrees with me, so be it. I don't live for others approval of anything I do, so it will have to be referred to as just one mans opinion and nothing more.

Thanks for the thread and thank you for considering these personal thoughts on the subject matter of a persons skin color.

What an astounding lie. Conservatives want nothing more than to keep minorities down. Why do you think they keep passing all of these Jim Crow, draconian, voting laws?

You are either not a minority or you are clueless ... and dangerously so. Just because you say something doesn't make it so. Conservatism feeds on, and promotes, bigotry. It is an evil that is about ready to die which is why it is screaming so loudly.

Conservatism = bigotry. And you are white.

Political status,finical status,social status,marital status,employment status,etc...and race.

The Op should just get over himself, suffering from tall poppy syndrome.

Go to Africa and in many African nations Caucasians are targets for racial slur & kidnapping; go to Islamic nations and non-Arab and Christians are targets; go to Caucasian nations and blacks are targets (but then so are teen boys of all racial denomination by Police); go to South America and non-hispanics are targets. The list goes on and on.

As for Afro-Americans; a majority are law abiding citizens however the prisons have a majority of Afro-American "residents" from low soci-ecnomic backgrounds. By saying this, those from low soci-ecnomic backgrounds regardless of their racial denomination think it's their God given right to steal, profit from illegal drugs, and murder rather than stay at school and get a basic education, trade, or respectable job because it means they have to actually work for it. By committing crime, they dishonour themselves, their families, their communities and their nation.

Respect is not demanded, it's earned!

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding the OP, but this thread isn't really about stopping racism.

It's about people using race and the assumption of racism to slander an entire viewpoint, in this case conservatism.

Generalities such as "The Tea Party hates black people" are designed to intimidate and mis-inform people and are a shortcut to real discussion and thinking.

It's also very interesting that the tea party are often avid gun toters. If hell broke out on the street because of the collapsing system and impoverished minorities starting looting and rioting, average citizen would start taking matters into their own hands because we are just crazy americans like that. we don't chop your hands off for stealing but we also don't stop you from protecting your own stuff. makes an interesting combination and in my opinion is the reason why some politicians actually try to speak of tougher gun control in america even though they know it's way too late.

it's because a lot of people saw this coming. in vain they wanted to try to get guns off the streets before TSHTF but it's not going to happen. that is why people need to drop all this racist stuff and realize that we are all in the same boat headed down # creek and we really need to get past our differences right now. race IS a political tool, don't fall for it.

You have hit the nail right on the head!

It's encouraging to me to see that some people actually share my views on this subject because as you can read I've been called a trader, a white republican, and un American... all because I don't think like them. THANK GOD!

My street has Blacks/Whites/Hispanics and who knows what else. If TSHTF you can bet your boots we will all band together. We have done it during hurricanes and blizzards so it is nothing new to us.

It is the city folk who do not know each other and have not formed a "Community" who are going to really be hurting. If you do not think the divisions were done on purpose read this well researched Article It documents the intentional smashing of American culture by the Elite starting just after WWII and the formation of the United Nations.

"Global Governance" has been on the drawing boards for a LONG LONG time and the "Race Card" is just one of the weapons the Elite have used against us. They HAVE to take out the USA from within and if you open your eyes you can see that has been the political agenda since before 1913 and the Federal Reserve Act.

"Socialism" and "Communism" are just more weapons as is stirring up all the "religious" crap.

Indeed I am... going of 52 as a matter of fact. But I was a child in the 60's... having fun with my friends, who were black and white and latino, playing baseball and riding out bikes.

I'm talking about now... about the very people in this thread calling me a "white republican" and a "trader" because I don't buy their crap anymore.

I am their worst nightmare.

Sorry, bro. You are no one's worst nightmare except to anyone who doesn't agree with you. Throughout this thread you keep picking fights with everyone who has a different point. Discuss. Don't call people names, BRO.
