So if an older white minister or politician made a statement that contained what was considered "something from his time period" and blacks, asians, or whoever felt it was offensive, would that be OK then too?

I'm just telling you it isn't a racist comment, you percieve it to be one and it isn't.

"for white to embrace what is right" isn't racist ........

to compare those statements without context is bullsh*t. To say that white existence in this country is historically the same as minority existence in this country is bullsh*t, therefor you must apply different gauges to what can be deemed racist. Sorry, i know it doesn't seem fair, but it's true. you can't address subjective judgments on statements without allowing for context and background.

I thought it was uneccesary for the occasion to say "and when white will embrace what is right." That is lumping me in with all other white people saying that white's don't currently embrace what is right. Anyway my point is that if a white man had said something similar, be it "from his time period" or whatever, people would be offended and there wouldn't be an excuse like that for him.

Sorry you said offensive in the arena of race, usually means racist,

uh yeah just like how all the white people on this board are getting flustered.

But then we would have to explain to black folks that it is only percieved as racist, but in America there isn't any racism directed at whites. (sarcasm)

Look i'm not playing devil's advocate or anything, i'm just telling my wife who is black has heard the saying before and it's not a racist intent, if some old white dude got up there and said something like that that's relative to white culture i'm pretty sure some people would throw up the offensive flag i'm just being straight forward.
