Do you define your political stances through your own thoughts and ideals, or do you simply take the opposite position of your opponent? I agree that liberal thought is a mess, but conservative thought is a close second. Both believe in social engineering. Just at different magnitudes and in different directions. Honestly though, I'll gladly suffer through conservative though prior to liberal thought, any day! My personal stance is that hate is not a good thing, but it happens, and sometimes is even necessary. Look at the "Irish" thread for examples of the petty nature of political and religious strife. It (hatred) can too easlily be turned into effective propaganda. Calling people like myself a liberal because we are fairly tolerant, is a huge mistake. We are far from liberals, as the term is used in politics. This toleration does not extend to our "enemies". We just choose not label anyone differing from our mold as an "enemy".

I'm comfortable with anyone who's nice enough to let me know he hates me for whatever reason to my face. It's those people who hate you behind your back you have to watch out for. Remember Ruby Ridge, and God Bless Texas...

Being "PC" shows that one is to weak to stand up for what's right in the face of peer presure. To hate someone because of their color "or to hate at all" is also a sign of weakness. Bigotry is a trained response, to remain a bigot is shows an inabilty to learn. Just my thoughts Mike "He who angers you controls you"

But if a White, Christian, Heterosexual, Male, Conservative Capitalist tries to advance his beliefs or celebrate his identity - he's shouted down as a hatefilled-racist-bigot-homophobic-oppressor and a danger to society.

Racism is the natural order in the human universe. Racism is tribalism and all humans are tribal. I have never met anyone who is not a racist. Bigotry is totally different. If you prejudge people based on their physical attributes such as height, weight, and color, you are a bigot. Bigotry is a learned response. Children don't start their lives as bigots. They are either trained as bigots or certain experiences in their lives have conditioned them to think that way. You cannot deny these experiences. I have met bigots from all walks of life. I have met bigots who are Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Mexican, Black, Greek, you name it. When someone tells me not to be racist, I have to think they are either uninformed, disingenuous, or simply stupid. However, I was raised not to prejudge people, and in my daily life, dealing with people man to man, I am not bigoted. If I see you need help pushing your stalled car out of the intersection, I'll pull over and help you. I don't care what color you are. Yet, at the same time, when I drive by the Mexican neighborhoods in San Jose and see beer cans in the gutter, am I wrong for asking myself, "What the hell is wrong with these Mexicans? Why do they throw beer cans in the street?" Or when I hear of senseless violence and death, the result of one teen "dissing" another, am I wrong to think, "Shit, can't the Black folks raise their kids properly? I never hear of White kids killing each other for 'dissing'?"

This is a perfect example of the disease that is affecting the Black community. To state "Ain't every white wrong." implies you have at one time considered that every White [b]could be wrong[/b]. The level of bigotry in the Black community is utterly amazing.

The "poverty line" = $18,100 annual income, which is equal to $8.70/hour. Lotta jobs out there that pay +/- the min. wage. Still, there are lots of people busting their hump just to make it hand-to-mouth, day-to-day. Not causing trouble, not being degenerate "gangstas", but just trying to get by. Even double or triple that income still barely allows for the nice things in life... It's not about being poor, it's character that counts, I think. Lots of rich bastards with black hearts causing this country a huge amount of trouble.

And you have while failing to make a point. jj you have painted some incredibly broad brush strokes here. I don't mean to belittle you, but I already see the point that you are feebly attempting to make. However, your logic requires me to generalize multiple points. 1. Not all blacks are poor. 2. Not all poor are black. 3. Not all poor are such as a direct result of anything within their control (I refer to many here who are laid off and literally one unemployment check away from living in a cardboard box next to some of these so-called dregs you generalize to be representative of all those living beneath the poverty level). 3. Not every poor person pumps out babies. 4. Not every poor person takes drugs. You have an impeccable ability to draw inferences from unrelated items and fabricate logic from ad hominim arguments. It doesn't mean that I don't like you. It just means that it takes extra effort on my part to debate you.
