    I know somw will call me a racist for posting this, but it does ask some good questions.
    You really have too think about those questions. I'm not trying too start a fight. Those are not my words. But it did make me think.

    I just don't worry about it. I've got way too much sh*t to do.

    I'm not a racist either, there's definitely trash in any race. I do like the fact that some states are putting a bill up to make english the official language of the state though. If your going to live here accept our country, not try to change it to suit yourself.

    Personally, I think too be in this country legally, one should be required too speak english. Now if the police come in contact with anyone who can not speak english, they should be arrested on the spot and held till INS come too investigate them. I think it's a complete waste of our tax dollors too have spanish translators. I'd like too hear the opinions on that from our brethren LEO's.

    I gotta say, not in an offensive way, that you've gotta learn the difference between "to" and "too" when you are spelling your words. Its driving me nuts. :doah: :haha:

    I wonder about those things all of the time. here at my school they have what they call "African Amercian Dinner." once a month they take all of the African Americans out to eat anywhere they want to got. They also offer full scholarships to any central american that wants to come to school here. They only offer a limited amout of scholarship money to regular americans. Many people call me racist but if I am racist then I am racist against everybody because like what was mentioned earlier there is trash in all races. I have friends that are african american and central american at this school but there are also many that I cannot stand. along with that there are many white people here that I do not like. If we were all created equal like we are suppose to be then there would not be and african american dinner or free scholarships to central americans but then we would be racist.

    Paul, I edited your post to eliminate some of the more provocative racist slang. Just for the record, the "N" word is not allowed here in the Lounge.

    And, FWIW, let's not forget that there is a fine line between being proud of your white/Anglo Saxon heritage, and being a White Supremacist. Also, there is nothing wrong with being upset by the anti-White slang out there, but using that as a justification to throw around other racist terms is plain silly.

    Just so everyone knows, I'm gonna let this one stand for a little while, but I'll be keeping a close eye on it. Let's try to avoid getting this one locked, okay?

    To Me this is not something that happens everyday. The only time I ever had a problem with a black person was a guy I worked with. The company I worked for was giving out promotions and raises. I got both and He got nothing due to His attendance record. So later that day I was at the gas station I was getting some gas and He came up to Me and started calling Me racial slurs and saying how I stole His position. I let Him go on cause I knew He was pissed and I really didn't give a rats ass. Then to impress His two buddy's He shoved Me witch led to Him getting a beat down and His mouth split open to the middle of His cheek and the back of His head getting split open from His head getting bounced off the pavement due to the blows His face was taking. I got up and Told Him I would see Him at work on Monday and asked if His two buddy's had a problem, which neither of them did at that point.
    Point of the story is I could care less that the guy called Me names, but when He touched Me that was crossing the line in My book. Getting all anal over words is pretty lame.
    Other than getting a day off for MLK Day None of this has ever changed My life nor does it even come in to the scope of My daily thoughts.

    most of he black guys at my school talk a lot but none of them will ever do anything. talkin doesnt bother me and they are huge so I dont want to start anything but I wouldnt back down. most of them come in groups though so if you pick a fight with one you pick a fight with at least 4 and they see no shame in beating the snot out of one guy with the whole gang.

    Theres the problem right there with black guys: they always seem to stick together in a group.
    One black guy can't defend himself. They go in a group to protect each other. Just cowardism, IMO.

    All I did was copy and paste. Sorry for any offence. But I do have too agree, "Cracker" and "Honkey" are no different then the "N" word. it's ment as a racist remark to dissrespect. I understand the big taboo about the "N" word. In this Politicly Correct world, everybody has too walk on egg shells. I just wish, .... ah hell with it, doesn't matter. There never will be equal rights for everybody as long as any group can cry racist if they don't get thier way.

    I don't, I don't. I just see it as a double standard. White people dare not say the "N" word, but turn your TV to BET and the blacks are constantly refering to whites as peckerwood, cracker, honkey, white-boy, white-bread, whitey, ...ect. Doesn't bother me one bit, well, I should say those words don't bother me, what does, is they can call whites any racist slur they can think of, but white people don't dare say that "N" word. I believe in respecting other people, I just find it hard too do when someone won't respect me or my family.

    You know Paul, those things annoy me too. This will all change when "IT" comes, and I don't mean a race war like the supremacists/national socialists do. "IT" is going to be a societal shift when the majority of self respecting black people, and hispanics say "Hey, wait a minute; we don't need any fockin special treatment, we are just as capable of succeeding as anyone else". The majority of them will come to a realization that being a "protected class" automatically stigmatizes them as weak and does exactly the opposite that it was designed to: it creates a second class citizenship.

    In a way, I feel sorry for those folks claiming "the man is keeping them down" because in a sense they are correct. Our society IS keeping them down by offering handouts, special programs and special treatment, this in turn lowers their drive to succeed and their expectations of success.

    I for one have no problem with anyone, regardless of skin color, who bases their self-worth on the merits of their own actions and the life they live.

    Spending 3 weeks in India last month opened my eyes to how the rest of the world does things, and why we need to change how we do things. For example language, India has 17 Official languages plus english. Yeah 17! So the idea is they are supposed to learn their native tongue and english as well. So I am really in favor of a law that calls for english to be the official language here. Learn it or leave. rant off...........

    Personally, skin color doesn't matter to me, you are either decent, or a jackass. I admit the double standards do kind of irk me, what if fair for one race, should be fair for the others. I doubt anything will change in my lifetime.
