I like how you automatically assume that the media affects my decision about anything.

I am one of those people who does NOT live and die by the television.


Clarification, ' media ' in my statement includes TV, radio, print, internet, anything of which there is record.

This is a tricky spot, because if you claim you never allow records to influence you, than we would know that is untrue because it is nearly impossible.

So really a balanced position is most favorable.

The media influences us all, even me, to an extent. To what extent is the question. So of course I can safely assume media influences you, as it does us all.

Your ex sounds like a strange woman, and, as you said, immature. In my mind, a freeloader...But the oddest thing is her being on Creflo's bandwagon. A strange combination. There sure does seem to be some white guilt going on with her.

Race is definitely an issue for some, on both sides of the fence. To pretend it isn't is to live in Fantasy Land.

Having said that, color isn't an issue with me. Truth and history are. To continue to play the democrat / republican game, going back and forth every four years because you're disappointed, or stubbornly holding on to a party affiliation despite the sad truth that they aren't doing anything for this country and the electorate, is why we're in the mess we are now.

People will vote for the "lesser of two evils" based on the dumbest things. They like the guy, they could sit down and have a beer with him. They believe the lies these idiots spout out, not remembering that every politician back to Andrew Jackson has been a damned liar. They like the way they look (how many guys went gaga over Sarah Palin, and voted that ticket 4 years ago based on her looks?). They hate the other guy and want him out. They let their religious beliefs lead them to the candidate that panders to their "morals".

People are, as a rule, petty, and they think small. Is race still an issue? Yep. Until we further evolve and all become the same color, race will matter to some people, and they will base their vote on that.

The psychology of it will give you an aneurysm.

Let's see if Race is an issue for
Newt Gingrich or John Sununu.
www.youtube.com...

In two minutes Newt says Obama is "Lazy" needs to play "basketball"
and has a different "Rhythym" than the rest of them.

It's what this election is about for many many people .
No one, since modern polling, has had a higher percentage
of the white male vote than Romney.
That's FOX and AM radio at work.

Heff, THANK GOD SHE IS AN EX!

Yeah, folks are still racist, moreso than ever, and SHE is a racist. to like or dislike someone DUE TO RACE ALONE.. is a racist. We get the racist crap all the time. You have those that spout absolute lies about casinos, taxes, special treatment.. and then those who try to be overly pandering and stick their head as far up your ass as youll let them. BOTH are racists and both are sick. Heff, have I ever toldja about "rez crawlers"??
WHen she is done fawning all over the blacks, she might move on to the rez. I already have an official ndn name for her just in case.. little-brown-nose-who-hates-her-own-skin.

Yes, the presidential race seems to be a big issue for many.

LOL

Yeah, she is an ex, thankfully. Oddly and ironically though... it wasn't because of this issue. It's because she actually is a rich little snob.

Whats Race? Im just another man of African decent. It really sucks that some people are so easily manipulated. Ask anyone whos "racist" why they think that way...They will just give the same old generic answer
which would probably be based off of their parents/family member views, or something they have seen on tv.

It will never be based off their personal experience with other "races", becaues if that were the case they obviously wouldnt believe in "race".

I also dont agree with people voting for Obama because hes "black", but Im sure most of you understand why someone would do that.

Not necessarily.. so lets keep it real.


Most racism is either ignorance or hatefulness.. take your pick.Racists get SOMETHING psychologically out of the hate.. and hate covered with "understanding". They are deficient. Ive never had the violent racism toward me or my kids ( half white) other than from blacks, WHen you have several black "youths jump you in a grocery store parking lot and call you white bitch.. i call that racism. That didnt come from misconceptions or parents. I dont hate "blacks" due to it, but there is a definite cultural issue and deep ignorance.. mainly since Im not white

White people have a whole other kind of racism toward me.. they stick the head so far up my ass it squeaks type of pandering racism. which I actually hate more than the violent kind. The best is being mistaken for a "spic" or a "raghead".

Look me up on FB under advantage ats.. Im darker than some blacks, yet we were at an art fair and these few black kids were standing there and called me( red/brown) a little stream of stupid ( pinkie, vampire whitey.. blah blah) and I turned to him and said " REALLY?? YOU THINK IM WHITE! AWESOME!!! **thumbs up** I doubt he even understood my sarcasm or understood how far his blind hatred was since he hates anything thats NOT black.. regardless of what the person might be.
I work with what folks here call "inner city youth" and live a town over from East St Louis. Yes, Im in the 618. Im learning WHY there is racism and whites dont have the corner of the market on it. The blacks have a solid case for hard feelings as much as the whites... because its a lot more than TV or parental influence. Its BS people DO and SAY and BELIEVE. If we get off of PC obsessions and call it like it is... we might get somewhere. TO deny that means you deny the real problem that is ripping us all apart. Besides, one day both you blacks and you whites will figure out you arent the only 2 skin colors on the planet.. one day.. maybe,

I personally believe that culture is important. VERY. I want the blacks to maintain a culture.. just not this hatefulness. I want whites to get off their pedestals of assuming blacks REQUIRE their almighty white hand up.. an the blacks quit whining for it. My most happy day will be when blacks shrug off the victim mentality and raise THEMSELVES up.. deny white pity party involvement. WHites say.. hey, youre human beings.. do it yourselves. If you dont, my friend.. welcome to the rez, hope ya like the complementary commodity cheese at the concentration camp

Then read it real slow sometime.. when youre done frothing at the mouth. You know, when youre done following me around ats, post after post, thread after thread... posting BS and showing your idiocy and hatefulness. Get a new hobby.. or perhaps work on reading comprehension,

The comprehension issue isn't on my end. Very sad. But you tried to look cool doing it. That's what counts, isn't it?

Nope. I am for outting real racists and the reasons for racism and getting over it. Its really unfortunate you are all for keeping it in the closet. If you want to keep black folks in the ghetto and maintaining divisions according to color alone, you have more problems than reading comprehension,

I have just voted. The entire voting thing has become a big media circus in which race has become a big issue. Sorry but we live in a media - driven soundbit society. Race gives a circle code as to who is good and who is bad and it often s**ks because it is a stereotype.

Heff sorry to say you r Ex was an idiot. Trust me. Black people are not a homogenous bunch. It is deeply racist or naieve to say that all black are good or all or bad. The same applies to all races.

PS I predict an Obama win and a legal complication surfacing but not the birther issue!

The only people keeping blacks in the ghetto are the blacks themselves. They need to clean up gangland so their youth can get an education in peace.

i find it hard to believe myself that it's still as prevalent. when i hear someone mention race, of any color, i kind have to think for a minute what their even talking about before it sinks in.

Nope. Like I said.. read my post again.. real real real slowly without injecting your own spin of hate into it. Now, Im going to go to another thread as I dont want to destroy Heffs thread with your constant trolling of me. Have a great time figuring it all out tho. Hint: there is a lot more to this than gangs and education.. and blacks arent all in gangs nor uneducated.. who are living in poverty. Its also amazing how you focused on blacks, since I mentioned idiotic whites as well.. that musta been the disgusting part, eh?

I'm the same. It usually takes me a few sentences before I even begin to catch on to the concept - and once I do I find myself nearly unable to find words.

That's why the postings on FB took me aback enough to post this thread. I'd read countless accusations about this on ATS and dismissed them all as rhetoric. But was shocked to actually see it in my own world. Isolated as my ex's behavior may or may not be... It filled me with a desire to open a dialogue.

If we do not live in a post racial world - as I would hope... Well then we need to start the process once and for all. The color of a persons skin or their heritage is wonderful in regards to self identity - but irrelevant in all other aspects of life.

I'm half Irish and half Native American. Both things I take pride in. But only in how I view my own culture - not something I want others judging.

If any of that makes sense....

Walking home from work today, a bunch of black kids on the street were shouting, "Vote for the black guy!"
I almost stopped to ask them what the president's agenda was, but I figured it'd be a waste of time.
