Oh, now its 100 years ago.

Damn, and I thought it was just a couple months ago when a Louisiana Magistrate decided he wouldn't marry interracial couples.


There will always be ignorant people.....on both sides of the race issue.

I am not hating on anyone....not even KT. I have no idea what he has been though or seen in his life. He may have been the recipient of horrible racial persecution. If he was, we should all be ashamed of it.

All I am saying is that as long as we blame everything on the past, we will never move forward from it.

We need to understand what happened....learn from what happened...but also move forward from what happened.

There will always be ignorant redneck hicks who hate African Americans because of the color. There will also be ignorant and bitter African Americans who hate whites because of the past.

There is almost no help for these groups. I only hope that the rest of us find a way to move forward.

Bobcats play the Hawks tonight. Should be a good game. I look for the Cats to get one step closer to the playoffs.

I am not saying that.

I am just trying to say that everything bad that happens to you is not some conspiracy to keep the Black Man Down.

Is there racism still today....absolutely.

Is it the reason for every failure of a minority today....absolutely not.


It certainly exists and stacks the deck against them.

But I'm also one of the people that will point to the US as the major bastion of civil rights movements and radical change to an institutionalized system that has ever existed.

I can't think of many countries in the course of human history where those that were considered beneath the controlling race won their independence and status in the same way.

And using it as a crutch only makes the situation worse for everyone involved, absolutely.

But I know for a fact there are businesses operating in Charlotte, NC where certain minorities will not ever be considered for employment under any circumstances.

Not major corporations, that would be illegal. They have to keep their employee base small to circumvent the laws.

Yeah, there's a thread about that somewhere around here. But this is about the mod change and the reason behind it.

So stop trying to hijack threads with your one liners. :mad:

Well, if I knew who that businesses were...I would be at the front of the line picketing their asses.

You're almost there. Just a little more.

Now imagine if you asked your parents or grandparents and they broke down crying because 45 years ago they found their brother/son/uncle hanging in the front yard or a f**king cross burning in their yard.

But now I'm being a little too real fo yall.


This reminds me of a childhood story most people find amusing looking back.

For 4 years (ages 5-9) my family shared a duplex with a black family, the Heaths. I have two older sisters and the Heaths had two children, a boy and a girl. Both fathers and my mother worked, leaving Mrs. Heath to watch us 5 kids all day. She is a great woman and mother and cared deeply about all of us.

We had a group pet Rabbit, we all took care of him and we all chipped in to buy his food. One day he died of old age, and we decided to bury him properly in the back yard. After burying him we decided we needed a cross to place on the grave. The only thing we could think of to use were split rails from the neighbors split rail fence. Somehow (and to this day I can't remember how we managed this) we were able to make a cross, only it was about 5 foot high and very large.

We all went about our business and were playing in the yard together when we saw about 5 police cars come flying up to the house. Mrs. Heath had seen the cross from the kitchen window, assumed the worst, and called the cops.

We were convinced that the 5 of us were going to jail for stealing split rail fence. They had to explain to us what she thought it meant. Everyone had a good laugh, especially Mrs. Heath.

Just pay attention to small businesses that do not employee women or minorities.

The problem is when members of said groups are put into positions of power or authority.

All too often, they use it to project their hate, and influence policy against any member of the group their hate is for. Ex. Locking threads, moving threads, or calling people trolls and racists who aren't even posting at the time.

Small businesses with only white males working in them. They're not hard to find.

The ones I know of for sure I've worked for, but I don't disclose personal information over the internet to a group of strangers.

They're out there. They're not hard to find.

Okay on that note I'm done with this thread....

So all the cards are stacked against me my family and friends....

Wow how the hell did I make it here???? Must have been a F-ing Miracle!! I don't even know how I've been hired at some of these places I worked or interned!!!

I don't know how my friends/classmates got funding for their business. It wasn't their education, teaching, time, research, or excellent business plan they put together.

Your right!!! I need to say kill whitey for everything their ancestors did to mines!! They are not their own person, and they will not judge me as my own person. I need to be so worried about what happened to my family everyday that I cannot enjoy my life because some white man is always out to keep me down.

F-you, don’t worry… one less person you have to worry about responding to your ignorant poo.
