Wait a second....
... you mean this entire thread is about a Ron Paul supporter THINKING that someone is going to take offense at the name of his street?
And this is followed by a bunch of people saying; "Yeah, the MEDIA sure brings up superficial charges..."
>> Sure there are ambulance chasers of racism. Sure the Media hypes nonsense -- are we saying that water is wet? But this is belittling real racism --
and REAL issues with Ron Paul and his son (the apple not falling far from the tree).
How about addressing REAL charges -- rather than your own straw man arguments. Maybe the Racist charges are bogus -- but this is insulting. THIS is
the kind of nonsense that actual racists conduct all the time. This topic has a "tin ear" when it comes to the slippery "I'm not a racist -- I
just hate these Urban behaviors" -- NeoRacist of today.
>> When I listen to a talk show host like Neal Bortz -- that to me is the "NeoRacist" -- this guy does nothing but harp on the petty "urban poor"
issues and anecdotal stories of "ethnic failure" ... never, ever talking about the much more prevalent corporate crimes or equivalent misdeeds of
I'm a white guy and the polar opposite of a "Bleeding Heart Liberal" -- but I have to say that Most of my "white, Conservative friends" -- are

and "welfare" -- as if these were HUGE and expensive issues of our day. Any joke about a woman's ass or a black man's behavior is much
It would be one thing if there were a bit of balance -- but no, the white-washed issues you here on the radio get magnified when in private. The New
Racism uses as much coded messages as the Evangelicals do when asking people to bring on "end times" -- it is pretty scary stuff when you figure out
what is actually meant and what is said when Evangelicals think the are amongst true believers.
So do us all a favor and talk about real issues -- not PRETEND issues. Straw-man arguments, coded speech, anecdotal crimes, and urban myths -- it is
typical of actual people who have a problem.
