Racism and the 2012 election

Explain how one group can be racist for voting around 60% against a man of a different racial background but another group that votes 90% against a person of a different racial background isn't racist?

Harry - Thank you for your reasonable and considered response.

NasCarNut - If the best example, or even just a mediocre example, of the residual racism existing in the South is that of a VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTER, we're making significant headway since the days of men with guns, badges, using fire hoses and dogs.

Although I'd say that most VFs across this country are honorable people, occasionally you find one that is willing to set a structure afire just to be able to respond to the alarm. Those guys are an aberration and are unlikely to become head of NASA or appear as a Retuning Champion on 'Jeopardy'.

It's more like, "But my Daddy, Billy-Joe Jim Bob, was on the fire department and I'm on the fire department too".

A volunteer firefighter from Texas was fired on Friday after congratulating the suspected terrorist for murdering nine black clergy members in Charleston, South Carolina.

Former East Texas firefighter Kurtis Cook allegedly posted the racist message onto the South Carolina newspaper’s Facebook page in response to the tragedy at Charleston Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on Wednesday night.

“He [Dylann Roof] needs to be praised for the good deed he has done,” he wrote.

K-dots, you ask, “should not the DEMOCRATIC party also be banned, and DEMOCRATS also be banned from holding political office?”

LOL. I’ve often wished that would happen. Still, it wouldn’t be desirable, nor would I advocate it.

Nor would I say the Confederate battle flag should be banned. Let people display the symbols they choose to display.

Like I told absolem, “I would never think of trying to take your Confederate battle flag. It's your right to express yourself.”

So, with that established, should not the DEMOCRATIC party also be banned, and DEMOCRATS also be banned from holding political office, since it was the DEMOCRATS that controlled the Confederacy, and rebelled in the first place? Absurd isn't it. Just as absurd as the current knee jerk reaction to label anyone who flies a Confederate battle flag a racist or treasonous, as well as the calls to ban it. True enough, for the most part the Democratic party now has a different mind set than they did back then, but you know what...the same applies to the THAT flag.

Man it can really get boring having a debate with the intellectually unarmed, like Ohwiseone here.

HARRY - You seem to have your marbles in one sock. Riddle me this.

WalMart and other merchandizers have decided to remove any product displaying the Confederate flag so as not to offend anyone. Americans who fly the flag are being called racist or treasonous. The hue and cry is mainly coming from Democrats. That flag is being depicted as a symbol of white racism and treason. Ok, let's for a moment agree with that and go down that road. The Confederate battle flag was the flag used by the Confederate army, the army of the Confederacy which DID rebel against the United States, and while it's true there were plenty of slaves in the northern union states, slavery was, primarily, a southern institution.

That's NOT what I'm hearing from the LGBT Community. They're saying that your "all tapped out".

Who am I to argue with those authorities?

NBC & MSNBC - "Lean Forward", by b!tching about the past.

Ohwiseone, you should have a solid future with them.

BTW - When you said, "University ???? I didnt know they let unethical liars in !", I laughed to the point of being short of breath.

Can I tell of the legendary story of a former university student and professor named Barack Hussein (Soetoro) Obama?

There are those that use the Cross and Battle flag to demonstrate their warped hatred agreed. Witout that flag, or cross, the hatred will not go away and to think it will is foolish. This is another concession to the PC left that will do absolutely NOTHING

If we are going to ban things that lead some to violence or hate, what about the Quran?

Try to focus fluffy, try to stay on topic as hard as that if for you. We are talking about racism and history not your fantasies about Union locals, there is another topic for that
