    Racists seem incapable of using apostrophes correctly.

    The sign should read `No more whiteys in DC.`

    "Magic Negro"....I don`t think so.

    Why is it racist to complain about racism? He might not be the most literate of people, but considering Obama`s AG announced in the last couple of days that the DoJ is now officially racist (having already acted in a racist manner since Holder was appointed) he has, at the very least, an arguable case.

    @Gerry,
    Still laughing!

    @BoredFrank,
    A whole LOT of idiots can`t use apostrophes correctly. The racists are just a small sub-group of them.

    Please remind me again how they "have overcome" and racism is still no longer a significant problem in this country....

    Racist, perhaps, but it hits mighty close to the truth, now doesn`t it. Wouldn`t be considered racist if roles were reversed, would it. But think about it. The Martin/Zimmerman case is a perfect example of racism at work. Not because of the outcome, but because of the reaction to the outcome. Zimmerman was acquitted, and several people and groups are calling racism. If Zimmerman had been convicted, and the Latino community (for those that don`t realize it, he is Latino) had protested like some groups have protested about his acquittal, they would`ve been labeled as racist. But the blacks protesting his acquittal aren`t racist. If roles were reversed and Martin had killed Zimmerman, the trial wouldn`t have even made the news. But thats not racist. Right?

    Can we just nuke the southern half of the US and be done with it? We wouldn`t lose anything worthwhile.

    "Here in Luxemburg", that guy would be brought to court and probably get about a year prison for hate crime.

    @WhoSaidWhat--I don`t think this "hits close to the truth."

    The Zimmerman case was racially charged, yes. Partially because the media hyped that aspect of the case, but what it ultimately came down to was that the only reason Zimmerman followed Martin that night was because he fit the profile for `troublemaker.` Young black male, therefore up to no good.

    This video captures the double standard

    I tried to submit this but it never went through. TL;DW--a white actor and a black actor publicly "steal" a bike. White actor is allowed to get away with it, black actor is immediately stopped and threatened.

    Some might argue that it`s `justified` based on statistics, but when a young person dies as a result, we have to stop and question.

    DrProfessor The reason your video didn`t go through (I guess you mean it did`t get approved) Is because it would have been a repost.

    Racial Profiling - Is It Exaggerated?

    HolyGod, "Please remind me again how they "have overcome" and racism is still no longer a significant problem in this country"
    I never said there wasn`t racism, just that instead of singing "We shall overcome" they should say proudly "We overcame". The average black person is middle class not, not poverty level. My neighbors, some black, some Hispanic, one Asian and a couple muslims. We all live at the same economic level, same types of jobs.

    As for racism, if anyone is waiting for universal acceptance they`re gonna be holding their breath a long time. There will always be people that don`t like someone. Gay, black, Asian, women, jews, whatever. But it is not institutional, it`s not "law" as it used to be. The low or no interest loans to personals of color give them an advantage.

    How are they held back? Where`s the blacks only drinking fountain? Don`t they enter hotels from the front now?

    Black people have a better shot at making it to prison than they do graduating college...so how exactly is the average black person middle class? They wade in the lowest of the poverty bracket--except for Native Americans who are even lower than them.

    "Black people have a better shot at making it to prison than they do graduating college...so how exactly is the average black person middle class?"
    No, young black males are more likely to go to prison than college. Trayvon Martin was middle class. He still embraced the thug culture. If he hadn`t died he`d have been caught {again} robbing or burgling. It is a part of the culture that promotes those choices. But according to US census statistics, the average black person is middle class.

    Yes it is a lower percentage than of whites who are middle class, but the point is the opportunities are there for them. Now perhaps instead of blaming others they need to examine their own culture as to why their sons go down the wrong path.

    We haven`t overcome anything other than a symbolic presidency. Obama`s bought and paid for, medical is a joke, any banking reform is a joke.
    True equality will happen when states like Florida lock up armed idiot vigilantes, when blacks stop acting like niggas, when "affirmative action" is scrapped for grade based entry into college and replaced with a system that mandates every country band have at least one black guy.
