Better watch, you might offend their feelings. Then everyone from Obama, Sharpton and the local NAACP will start yelling and screaming about racism. Geez, too bad we can't pull out a magic card like that.

Wineguy51, To your remarks, "offended'..as if you have had 200 years of hate directed at you!...too bad none of you were slaves...or were lynched for you color...or treated live sub humans..." . You haven't had those things happen to you neither or 98% of Blacks in this country. ( I give a 2% for those that might still be living that did go through some of the atrocities in their lives) What was written by the others is not racism but as a liberal you scream racism to silent dissent to the actual racist policies, organizations and groups from the left. An excerpt from an article I wrote that seems appropriate here. "When anti-discrimination laws were passed the vast majority of whites supported people being treated equally. After finding out that their kids may not get into college because of the color of someone else's skin with lesser qualifications, whites lost some of the passion. After their kids lost jobs because of the color of someone else's skin with lesser qualifications, more passion was lost. The idea was suppose to be no discrimination not discriminate against me. Whites as a whole have tired of this unfair ideology. Blacks on the other hand are resentful of whites because blacks and other minorities that were in college and had good jobs were never thought of has having earned it, so the respect that usually accompanied such positions never came. Unlike before the time of affirmative action policies when a black or other minority held their position, they not only where respected because they had earned their place, but had to overcome discrimination to get there. This also is unfair to all those minorities that did work hard and earned all the awards and rewards that accompany such industry." http://herndon.patch.com/groups/opinion/p/liberalism
