Of course they are... But we mustn't call them that, or WE'LL be the racists! The double standard is astounding.
I'll take the CBC seriously when they start admitting white people. Imagine if there were a Congressional White Caucus that did the reverse of this:http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0107/2389.html
From black friends of mine, I found out how truly racist some blacks are... even against other blacks.It would be a great story, but I doubt that any current "journalist" would attempt to tell the real story.
I bet if it was Herman Cain in the WH, they'd be all over it.
Brooke, correctBrooke, I have always said that. The real test for any race-based group is to replace the race with white. If it is okay for it be for whites only, it's okay for it to be for anyone else. Cube, black racism against orientals or Jews is been common placeLA, good point but then they don't see him as black.
Black supremacism, which is another term for racism.
I remember when Cleaver was just a pastor in Kansas City. I was acquainted with one of his co-pastors. Cleaver was pretty liberal back then, but he still seemed like a decent, honorable man. Then he became a council member, mayor and of course moved into national politics. As he advanced, to me he seemed to move further left and adopt more strident positions. I do think that the political culture often corrupts those who get into it.
Cube's right; a black girlfriend told me "you don't know racism until you're in a black barber shop or beauty shop" Sad, isn't it.And yes, the double standard is astounding and these people are the most divisive bunch around, Chuck. Then they blame those of us who'd vote for Allan West YESTERDAY for president for being RACIST? WHAT?
AOW, good pointAlligator, I wonder if most of them even believe it. Maybe it's just for the masses?Z, agreed
If numbnuts hussein wasn't president you probably wouldn't need to march on the white house.
MK, very good point
Seriously, if you don't have black friends, you won't see the extent of this racism from the left. It's big, and it's bad.
I've been around some inner city black kids. I'm not naive and I've been exposed to a lot in life, but the way some of those kids talked to each other made me blush - boys and girls. In worst case scenarios, the language led to physical altercations. I've been in the presence of white guys who have made disparaging remarks about blacks, but it seemed mild in comparison to what some of these kids said to each other. I don't even really think its a "black thing" I think it is an urban mentality, framed in broken social order and tinged with the racial component. Of course for the Left, they only see and squawk about the racial component of a really much larger and complex social problem.
Cube, I agree. Alligator, I work with inner city youth. I think it is a cultural inner city attitude and not race.
Interesting Chuck. Some urban kids I've seen were tougher than nails street wise. When we got them out in the woods on a camping trip break down, are terrified of the natural world having never been exposed to it. Some of them become children again and are teachable once their out of their element. It's great when they realize there is a whole world beyond "the hood" and start taking an interest in it. I grew up in the city but left int in prehistoric times. Whenever I go back now, I am very uncomfortable. Glad I don't live there anymore.
Alligator, I talk to a lot of these kids in the ER. Once you get them one on one they are usually a different person. They listen to what we are telling them. I realize that most of them still leave and continue their risky behavior but I take comfort in two things-if we get through to just a few kids, it is worth my time-the more we tell them, the higher the chance they will eventually settle down.
