Title: The Race(ism)/Hate Thread

A City's Changing Face
Wealth, Race Guiding Which New Orleanians Stay, and Which Never Return

By Blaine Harden
Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, May 17, 2006; A01



NEW ORLEANS -- Block by block, this city is springing back to life. Block by block, it is receding into the past tense.

With Hurricane Katrina nearly nine months gone and about 60 percent of New Orleans's pre-storm population still somewhere else, the rebirth and the wasting away are closely tracking neighborhood patterns of race and poverty.

Disparities in wealth and in the distance of evacuees from their ruined houses are dictating, in many cases, which neighborhoods will be part of the city's future and which will be consigned to its history. For a city that was two-thirds black and nearly one-third poor before the storm, the uneven pilgrimage back to New Orleans has already changed voter turnout and seems certain to transform the culture and character of the city, making it substantially whiter, richer and less populous than before.

This article, part of an occasional series about two severely flooded streets in the city, examines an affluent white and a poor black neighborhood that appear to have reached their tipping points.

That point has clearly arrived for the 6500 block of Memphis Street in Lakeview, a white neighborhood hit hard by Katrina. It is roaring back to middle-class life, and most owners on the block have committed to coming home.

Landscapers are rolling out sod for new lawns. Granite countertops and commercial-grade stainless-steel stoves are being installed in rebuilt kitchens. There is electricity, water, gas, mail service, newspaper delivery and garbage pickup. Two neighborhood banks are up and lending. A post-Katrina restaurant, Touché, serves breakfast and lunch. Two blocks away, St. Dominic Catholic church has been refurbished and is open each morning for Mass.

"Every day and every week is better, and people need to know that," said Bea Quaintance. With the help of a trailer from the Federal Emergency Management Agency that is parked in her front yard, she and her husband, Gary, and their son, Steven, were the first family back on Memphis Street. "I think this country has done a wonderful job of providing for us."

Across town, in a 98-percent-black, mostly working-class neighborhood that was also wrecked by the storm, the 2500 block of Delery Street has tipped the other way.

Like much of the Lower Ninth Ward, the block is empty and silent, with no electricity, no drinkable water, no gas, no FEMA trailers and no signs of rebuilding on a street where many families owned their homes for generations.

No nearby churches, banks or restaurants are open, and no one, not even organizers from groups demanding the reconstruction of the Lower Ninth, seems to have a list of residents with firm plans to come home. Throughout the spring, bodies were found in neighborhood houses.

A sign in the window of Daphne Jones's brick house at 2531 Delery declares: "No Bulldozing. We Are Coming Home." But Jones concedes that the sign is more wish than pledge.

College students on spring break gutted her house free of charge in April, but she says she does not have enough money to rebuild. She has been trying for months to contact and mobilize her neighbors, dropping "Rebuilding Our Own Neighborhood" fliers in their abandoned houses. But such fervent, low-tech efforts have not worked.

"A lot of them are far away, and they don't know what is going on," said Jones, 55, whose two grown daughters and entire extended family have fled the Lower Ninth, mostly for Georgia. She evacuated to a shelter in Hammond, La., filtered back to New Orleans at the beginning of the year, and lives now with a disabled friend in a FEMA trailer across town. The lack of progress in re-creating her old neighborhood leaves her baffled and sad.

"If the levees are being rebuilt stronger than before, why can't we rebuild here?" she said. "It feels strange to me."

To Return or Not?

After fleeing the storm, black residents, especially poor ones from the Lower Ninth Ward and the city's public housing projects, were much more likely than whites to end up living far out of town, according to city, state and federal studies. After long bus rides, many ended up in cities such as Houston and Atlanta.

For these African Americans, generations-old networks of kinfolk, church folk and friends have been obliterated or transplanted to another state where distance and the cost of travel undermine their ability to come home, even for short visits.

Middle-class whites fled in their own cars and tended not to go so far, according to the studies. Many of them rented apartments, bought houses, or moved in with friends or relatives in the mostly white suburbs that developed as whites fled school integration. These New Orleanians have remained close enough to get building permits, deal with insurance agents, hire contractors and bird-dog the reconstruction of their houses.

"The people from Lakeview are not poor," said the Rev. Donald Dvorak, pastor at St. Dominic, the largest church in Lakeview, which is 94 percent white. "They all had the means to leave on their own terms and a place to go -- and the means to come back. That is the difference between us and the Lower Ninth Ward."

Out of 23 houses on the 6500 block of Memphis Street, three have been refurbished and are occupied. Owners of 10 others have firm plans to demolish and rebuild. Architects are finishing drawings for new and -- in some cases -- larger houses.

The block is a work in progress. Three houses are for sale, and seven owners have yet to decide whether they are coming home. The neighborhood's storm-drainage system is damaged and clogs up after heavy rain -- a worrisome reminder of what could happen when the hurricane season starts next month.

Still, the momentum of return now seems unstoppable.

"It's not a wager, it's a sure thing," said John Pippenger, an accountant and deacon at St. Dominic. He and his wife, Linda, bought a house on Memphis Street early this year to replace one that Katrina destroyed a few blocks away.

There is a large bulletin board in the back of St. Dominic church with a computer-generated map of Lakeview. It shows that more than 1,400 families have pledged to come home. Every Sunday after Mass, worshipers wander back to the map and the pledge list grows longer.

A Toll on the Polls

The post-storm difference between the Lower Ninth and Lakeview was starkly quantified by voter turnout in the first election since Katrina, a mayoral primary held April 22.

Despite months of national publicity and an intensive effort to encourage out-of-town voting, turnout in the Lower Ninth fell 40 percent compared with the 2002 mayoral election. In the precinct that includes the 2500 block of Delery, turnout was down 50 percent. The falloff was mirrored in other black districts across the city.

In Lakeview, where most houses are also still empty, turnout dipped by only 6 percent. On the day of the primary, the neighborhood's polling center at St. Dominic became the site of a joyous homecoming party -- as cars rolled in all day long from the suburbs. In the precinct that includes the 6500 block of Memphis, turnout increased as it did in undamaged, mostly white neighborhoods such as the French Quarter and the Garden District.

Election results -- and the results of a mayoral runoff on Saturday -- will "have a big effect on what neighborhood voices are heard by city politicians," predicted John R. Logan, a sociology professor at Brown University who has begun a long-term study of demographic change in post-Katrina New Orleans.

"Lakeview is going to be an increasingly important political constituency in the future," he said. "And the Lower Ninth is almost certainly going to have less clout in coming years, and that really puts its future on the line."

The prospect of increased political power is an enticement drawing homeowners back to Lakeview, said Dvorak of St. Dominic. There is a growing certainty among returnees to the neighborhood, he said, that they will shape the future of New Orleans.

Waiting in the Suburbs

"When people don't vote, you lose your right to complain about services," said Ron Martinez, an architect who expects to move back with his family to Memphis Street by the end of the summer.

Ever since the storm, Martinez has been saying that race relations are as great a problem for New Orleans as hurricanes. But he says he can do little to redress the imbalances that have been worsened by Katrina. He and his wife, Cathy, have been preoccupied with the cost and complexities of finding a way to bring their own family back to New Orleans.

After the storm, they agonized about the financial sense and physical risks of returning to Memphis Street. It is below sea level (lower by five feet, in fact, than the Lower Ninth Ward) and just half a mile from where a levee breached along the 17th Street Canal, flooding Lakeview.

They opted last October for a holding pattern in the suburbs, buying a house in Destrehan, a 40-minute drive west of New Orleans. Since then, Ron has been commuting to his office in the Garden District. Their children, Evan, 12, and Marcelle, 11, commute to St. Dominic's School, in its temporary location about two miles from Lakeview. Ron usually takes the children in and Cathy drives them home.

On the first day of spring, they decided enough was enough. They took a financial leap that will soon take them back to Lakeview. They bought another house on Memphis Street and will use it as a base while fixing up their larger house on that street. They have not yet sold their house in the suburbs. "We weren't risk-takers before, but after Katrina, what the hell," Cathy Martinez said.

The Martinezes said they are taking the risk because their block, their church and their neighbors are all up and running. They want to be part of it without driving in from the suburbs every day. And St. Dominic School is scheduled to reopen in August in Lakeview. The kids will need to walk only two blocks to get there.

'Look and Leave'

Until last week, the city had designated the entire Lower Ninth Ward as a "look and leave" area because city water tested unsafe for drinking. That order has now been lifted, but only for about half of the neighborhood.

There is another post-storm fact of life that is even more maddening to former neighborhood residents. Just two blocks to the east of Delery Street -- where New Orleans Parish ends and St. Bernard Parish starts -- homeowners have been back for months. Their houses and their neighborhoods were ravaged by floodwaters to the same terrible degree as the Lower Ninth, but they have electricity, drinkable water and FEMA trailers.

Most of the residents across the parish line are white and, like many white residents of New Orleans, they tended not to have fled far from the metropolitan area. Many stayed with friends or relatives, and have exerted political pressure on officials in St. Bernard Parish to restore services to their ruined neighborhoods.

"I am not a conspiracy person," said William Quigley, a professor at Loyola University Law School in New Orleans and director of its Gillis Long Poverty Law Center, "but it is pretty hard to argue with the facts on the ground. If you are black in the Lower Ninth and you don't have electricity, water or a FEMA trailer and nobody is giving you a timeline when you will, that is a hell of a lot of conspiracy dots to connect."

City, state and federal officials have repeatedly said that they do indeed want residents of the Lower Ninth to come home and rebuild -- when the neighborhood is safe and when appropriate services are available.

But nearly nine months of delays in making the Lower Ninth safe and appropriate -- as similarly flood-damaged white neighborhoods are provided with a full complement of city services -- strikes Quigley as unfair.

"People in Lakeview have had the chance to decide whether to come home," he said. "People in the Lower Ninth have not yet had the choice. With every week that passes, it means they are less likely to come home. These delays are remaking the city."

Anna Valdery and her husband, David Stirgus, would like to go home to Delery Street.

They finally own their house, thanks to an $84,000 flood insurance payment that allowed them to pay off their mortgage and have $27,000 left over.

The brick house, part of what had been a highly successful project for low-income, first-time home buyers, is seven years old and, unlike most houses in the Lower Ninth, appears structurally sound.

But Stirgus, a retired truck driver, and his wife, a nursing-home aide, agree that returning is all but impossible. For one thing, their house on Delery is in the part of the Lower Ninth that remains closed to reconstruction. For another, they have only about $16,000 left in savings from the Katrina flood insurance settlement -- not nearly enough to rebuild their gutted house.

They live now in a FEMA trailer parked in a row of 52 identical white trailers lined up along a gravel road in Gonzales, La., a small town about 50 miles west of New Orleans. They arrived there after a seven-month multi-state post-Katrina evacuation that took them by helicopter, bus and airplane to Texas, Arizona and California.

In the past month, they have been back to New Orleans for a couple of short, depressing looks at their house and the moldering, abandoned neighborhood that surrounds it.

"The feeling I got when I went back to Delery Street was: Leave it alone, forget about it, go someplace else," Stirgus said.

Good article...but, you know, I don't think it's a race thing as much as it's an economic thing.  The planners and builders are going to build what will yield the most money.  And to make it worse, New Orleans has always had a huge degree of political corruption and people lining their pockets.  Is it a surprise that they're focused on building what will make the most profit?

By the way, that isn't saying that it's the right thing to do, in case anyone confused that.  But I think the reality is a little different than the article slant, and isn't all that surprising.

I don't think it's a race thing as much as it's an economic thing

except part of the race thing is making sure blacks stay poor...and what better way to do it than have a hurricane wipe them out with no hope for a return...btwn the intitial response (or lack of) and the utter lack of rebuilding of the black neighborhoods its quite obvious

best believe if a hurricane hit montery or cape cod shtein would be up and running with the quickness...and far less people would have died and suffered in its immediate aftermath as a vast and proper response would have been executed

But I really think both of those points are mostly money-driven.  Believe me, if someone could get super-rich rebuilding low-income housing over mansions...it would be done in a heartbeat.

Well, with few exceptions, the money divide is also a racial divide.  I agree, though, that the color of peoples' skin is not nearly as important to TPTB than the amount of dollars they bring to the table.

It's class discrimination, not racism... but they fall along the same lines anyway.

Absolutely...but I think the prospect of making money is the motivation.  Keeping people down is certainly more of a by-product than a goal for the powers that be.  They're following the money.

I'm not calling anyone here racist, let's get that straight first.  Now then, I think it's awful interesting that, whenever someone says that something racist is going on, stillupfront's moms come out of the woodwork to explain how what's happening isn't racist.  It's just economics, it's just ineptitude, it's just ignorance, etc.  The only way you can point out racism without people disregarding what you say is if you can point to a dixie-flag waving neo-nazi criminal with tattoos on his face and black blood on his hands.  That's just about the only brand of racism people will admit exists.

The money comment comes into play with regard to rebuilding.
But it has nothing to do with the fact that they have no water, no gas, no electricity, no FEMA trailers, no resources.
There is inequity here.
Some people want to argue that it's classism.  It's not happening because they are poor.
Some people want to argue that it's racism.  It's not happening because they are black.
How, exactly, can you separate the two?  They are feeding off each other.

Racism exists but in this instance economics are the driving force behind redevelopment, not skin color.

I mean, isn't the mayor of New Orleans black and he's the one directing the rebuilding efforts, right?

I think he understands that getting businesses back up and running is more important than bulldozing and clearing out residential neighborhoods where no one is currently residing anyway.

You fix what needs fixing first and then move on to the next challenge.  It's simple prioritization on their parts.

its mostly a federal project...in conjunction with the local govts...the problem is new orleans has no money so they are relying on the feds to provide much of the help....and you can see where that help is going

theyll end up spinning it by saying that the 9th ward residents and their like didnt want to come back...thus we didnt focus on those spots whose people didnt choose to return...when in fact they essentially are being told to not come back and are being givien no incentive or hope to return...while the white residents are getting fema trailers parked in thier FRONT YARDS to stay in while their house gets rebuilt

Last Friday, 8:20 a.m. on the corner of 8th ave. and 14th St, I witnessed a cab pass a black kid for a white kid standing not 30 feet past him, then suddenly drive away (without a fare) when the black kid, who had been waiting longer, went to take the cab.   I saw the whole scene play out as I was walking to work.  The driver might as well have been black himself..who knows, I didn't see.  What I did see was the the look of frustration on the black kid's face, and it was tough.  He was just exasperated.   It sounds gay, but my heart broke for him.  How farging infuriating it must be to go through life faced with that shtein every day.

Cue someone now to tell me that what I saw wasn't racism.  It was because black people "happen" to be poor, and poor people "happen" to  live in dangerous areas, so the cabbie who doesn't want to risk his life in those neighborhoods isn't necessarily racist, he's just looking out for himself...yeah.  Right.  Nevermind that he's bound by law to take the fare regardless of race or neighborhood.

i've seen it down there with my own eyes, and the difference between the obviously poor neighborhoods and richer neighborhoods is huge.

you see one block of row homes literally totally wiped out still, cars upside down in front of their houses, and you could tell that these people either haven't been back since the torm or have no plans to ever come back.

then 3 blocks down the road there would be a block of big nice houses that were pretty much back to normal. 

a large part of this that people don't realize is that the nice, richer houses were built on higher land to begin with, so the damage done to them was much less, add to that the fact that they have more money to begin with and of course they're going to be back sooner.  it's not like new orleans didn't know this could ever happen.  the people with money planned accordingly and therefore were hit less.

Post by: Rome on May 17, 2006, 10:07:41 AM
You guys realize that a lot of the people who got wiped out had no flood insurance, no windstorm insurance, and no catastrophic loss insurance, right?

I'm not denying there's a racist element to all of this but facts are facts.  If you don't have insurance against a loss like this, and you don't have the money to rebuild, then you're going to have large swaths of poor neighborhoods abandoned.

Every property owner has the option of insuring their properties against a total loss.  A lot of those poor folks couldn't afford the insurance, and as a result, they lost everything.  It's a tragedy to be sure but decrying racism as the cause of this is simply incorrect in this instance.

It's not like there's a line for white people to get help and a separate one for blacks down there.  It's a total fricken disaster, and again, those with money are being helped first and those without are having to wait. 

In other words, it's not about black and white, it's about green.  It always has been and always will be.

No, that was out-and-out racism.

And don't say you weren't calling Zanshin and me racists, because you were... and that's OK.  You're a racist, too.  IGY's one of the bigger racists on this board as well.  It's just a matter of how you want to direct your racism.  Are you going to sit there and say that every white Republican is a racist?  Isn't that racist in and of itself?

As I've said many times on this board and other places, the only way to absolutely and truly combat racism is to do everything in one's power to completely ignore race/color in every situation.  However, you then have the problem with people decrying the ignorance of different cultures and backgrounds.  You can't have it both ways.  The more we accuentuate our differences in heritage, the more stereotyping and profiling will continue.

P.S.  Racism isn't always a byproduct of another inherent cause.  I didn't say that.  But thanks for assuming I felt that way and tossing my opinion out in your garbage file.  Must be nice to be so enlightened like you are.

keep believeing that romey...is money a factor of course...but there is much more to this than that...

if the intitial response to the hurricane didnt make you see then i doubt what is currently going on will either...kind of reminds of how we bombed bosnia after we found some ethnic cleansing going on but we are currently on our second genocide in a decade in africa with virtually no response whatsoever...even tho more people were being killed on a daily basis for three months in rwanda than in all of bosnia for the entire conflict

so lemme get this right...the people who have lots of money and were able to protect themselves with insurance are getting all the help now...while the people who truly need help are getting none...

shouldnt the people that are most needy be the most helped...and im not saying go across the board and replace every black house with a new one...thats obviously not feasible...but could they at least make a concerted effort to lure the black residents back to town...whites are getting trailers in new orleans while blacks have to move to other parts of the country...govt money is being spent in only white neighborhoods...shouldnt it at least be equal...

but blacks were poor so what does it matter...they can just be poor somewhere else right?....even tho new orleans has been the home of their families for 100 years...

as for you talking about how new orleans has a black mayor...guess what...not for long...keep the blacks away for good and we dont have to put up with a black mayor for a long time....its the ultimate in redistricting...instead of tweaking a voting district just eliminate it...and once this political change is made then the fun will really start...say hello to mass gentrification in areas like the 9th ward and goodbye to a huge part of what new orleans was...get rid of the undesireables

We are supposed to live in a free market capitalist economy, which means that government aid is not going to be at the level where there won't be disparities in wealth.

Unfortunately, the Republicans in power would like to make the economy more geared toward a military institutionalism and are spending the many, many tax dollars creating organization to do so, while still (under-) funding many of the bureaucracies that are to provide aid to those on shaky financial ground.  Yet, if the Democrats were in power, they would like to make the economy closer to a socialist economy, where the middle class and upper-middle class take the brunt of the financial hit in order to overfund those same bureucracies that are supposed to help people get back on their feet, but ultimately just leave them dependent on the aid and still in need of even more.

In either system, the super-rich stay super-rich, and the poor are farged.  Welcome to America.

I just knew you wouldn't be able to handle that comment without taking it personally.  It was a risk I took.  So look..I'm NOT calling you racist.  I'm using your comments to point out what I consider to be a common phenomenon.  Your comments are perfectly valid and I'm not arguing with you about them.  Feel free to think otherwise if you like.

...and that's OK. You're a racist, too.
Yeah, well everyone has biases.  What's your point?? 

...Are you going to sit there and say that every white Republican is a racist?
No.  Would you like me to say that?

... Isn't that racist in and of itself?
Bigoted perhaps, but not racist.  If I were to claim that all white republicans are racists, it's different than claiming all white people are racist.  THAT would be a racist comment.  Saying all white people of a certain political persuasion are this or that is not racist.

P.S. Racism isn't always a byproduct of another inherent cause. I didn't say that. But thanks for assuming I felt that way and tossing my opinion out in your garbage file. Must be nice to be so enlightened like you are.
Calm down, Nancy.  You're reading too much into my comments.  I'm not posting about you and what you said.  I do not mean to say that FastFreddie thinks racism is purely a byproduct of other inherent causes (whatever that means).  I'm just pointing out that, these days, most everyone will explain obviously racist things away as caused by something else.

Put your money where your mouth is then.  Give handouts to people who weren't responsible enough to insure against losses to their property and person.  Where does it stop, IGY?  When do people take responsibility for their actions and stop depending on the government to solve their problems for them??

I've already stipulated that race has played a role in the response to Katrina.  I'm not blind.  I saw the people stranded and left for dead in poor neighborhoods after Katrina rolled through and was sickened by it.

I'm simply saying that those very same people put themselves in that situation.  They stayed when they were told to evacuate.  They were warned for generations that if and when a storm hit, their neighborhoods would likely be destroyed by flooding, but they CHOSE to ignore those warnings and stayed put.

I agree that we as a society should do whatever we can to help those less fortunate.  I'm hardly a cold-hearted capitalistic supply-sider.  I'm merely confirming that in any tragedy, certain priorties have to be met first and that's what's occuring in New Orleans right now.

You restore basic services to areas that are able to be restored easily and then move on from there.  That's how it's done, IGY.   The sad thing is, though, the devastation is so immense and complete that instead of taking weeks or months to rebuild, it's going to take years if not decades.

Everyone (almost) was forced out of the city those who were too poor to rent/buy another house were sent to other cities, why is that bad? Some have decided to stay in those cities due to the fact that they actually have a chance to do something. I know there were a couple of families displaced to the city I workin just south of Chicago, those kids have stayed in the district since then. And yes govt. money should be spent equally, if it is the govt money, there maybe people who had flood or other insurance that have been rebuilding.

as for you talking about how new orleans has a black mayor...

How in the heck does this guy get a pass in this whole mess? the fed gov is taking it's share of blame and bashing as they should, but this moron doesn't act inthe best interest of his people before during or after this storm, makes a clear as day racist comment when he said "New Orleans will be a chocolate city again" and nobody will throw blame on this guy. If Mayor Daley said Chicago will always be a "Vanilla town" Jesse Jackson/ Al Sharpton and others would have Heart Attacks. It's mind blowing that a city/state govt. in place for many many years that has done nothing for the poor of the city gets a pass in this mess and it all gets thrown on the fed's.

I'm using your comments to point out what I consider to be a common phenomenon.  Your comments are perfectly valid and I'm not arguing with you about them.  Feel free to think otherwise if you like.

I'm simply saying that said *phenomenon* is not just a pile of bull in this case.  It's the truth.  If you actually agreed with that point, why did you start an argument/dialogue about it?  That strikes me as being argumentative for the sake of argument, not for the sake of increased awareness or enlightenment.  Sounds like the U.S. government.

To be clear:  What I intend to accomplish by saying that your comments are valid is to acknowledge your right to them and move on without engaging you in debate over them.  In short, I'm trying to be civil with you.  Acknowledge your point and give mine, without having to argue them to death, that kind of thing.

It just so happens that I don't think it's "the truth" that racism has little to do with what's happening in New Orleans.  I don't think it's just economics, or mostly economics.  I think race is a huge factor.  But I don't care to tell you about my thoughts on the subject, and I don't care to hear yours.  It's not interesting to me.  The discussion bores me. 

The predictable pattern of the discussion is however very interesting to me.  So what I'm doing is pointing out that in these days of ours, most people are eager to say it's not racism.  Whether "it" is the situation in New Orleans, the dearth of black NYC firefighters, or the insanely high amount of blacks in prison.  The standard argument is that it's not racism "in this case," and I don't buy that.

We can agree to disagree and move on if that's alright with you.

Half-true.  Aside from those who take advantage of the system, there is a much larger percentage of people that are deserving of the assistance, but also trapped into it more than they should or want to be.  The bureaucracy perpetuates itself, because all of the government workers that work for welfare only want their jobs and their realm to grow... meaning that the only good way to run welfare is to make every effort to shrink the bureaucracy from one year to the next.  Since that will never happen, we either have to accept that those working for the government in the system are lining their pockets much more than those the system is supposed to help, or that the whole system needs to be scrapped and redone.

believe this.... there are far more people practicing racism than there are those claiming false racism and its not even close

Yes, I believe that.  I also believe that you and others with similar viewpoints and courses of action are perpetuating the problem far more than alleviating it, because you continue to accentuate and inflate the racial divide.

Racism permeates our society in many ways. Any endeavor undertaken is a microcosm of the nation’s attitudes in general. Rebuilding New Orleans will have all the same problems experienced on the whole.
Title: Re: institutional racism is alive and well in america
Post by: DutchBird on May 17, 2006, 03:52:08 PM
Racsim permeats any society, unfortunately. It is an almost natural phenomen  as part of the "us vs them" idea. A community feeling threatened by change. What makes the difference is how we act upon that...

 And as far as racism towards New Orleans goes, it certainly was and is there. The fact that there was some semi serious talk about relocating large parts of the city is proof enough. I have never ever heared similar talk or even th notion of it when the umpteenth hurricane devatstaed Florida, or another earthquake flattened parts of southern California.

 In many ways the whole "economic" argument is IMHO as much valid as it is a cover for the real motive, ignorance because of (hidden) racism. We do not care, because they (in this case the poor) are not easily identified with, plus the fact that they confront us with the darker aspects of our society and the American capitalist model in particular.

 The difference in response for the Pakistan earthquake vs the boxing day tsunami last year is a remarcable parallel. Part of the reason why so much money was raised was because it was easily identified with (white toursist and d-list celebs got hit). I would not be surprised (am almost convinced) that a disproportionate share of the relief went to Thailand, because that is where the toursists were, rather then the equally if not much harder hit shores of Indonesia and Sri Lanka (what got most media attention?). Whole carrier groups were sent to aid the relief effort.

The Pakistan earthquake might in the end have killed even more people (due to the onset of winter) might have killed more people then the tsunami. Only a fraction of the tsunami relief money was raised. There was a chronic shortage of helicopters and pilots. But then, we did not care, as no tourists were hit, and the locals were just a bunch of semi-Taliban rag-clothed hill tribe half savages (for those who do not see it, this was a sarcastic hyperbole). As one of the British newspapers remarked: The best thing for high risk third world countries is to make sure that at all times you have some tourists and D-list celebrities in potential disaster areas.
 
 And what was New Orleans? A largely black, poor city with a reputation for corruption (though I seriously doubt that it is that much worse then say Miami, LA, Detroit, Baltimore, DC and such). So no great loss there. Look at the crime and judicial statistics (both arrests, prison populations and sentences and (wrongful) convictions. Look at say Rodney King, and many of the (suspected) excessive use of violence and mistaken/questionable shootings by the police, I am not sure if statistics proof me right, but my impression is that a disproportiante number of the victims is non-white. They scream institutionalized racism. In fact, it was one of the chief arguments why the previous governor of Illinois put a moratorium on the death penalty. I am not sure, but one of the likely innocents executed under Bush's watch when governor of Texas might have been a victim of this as well.
 
 And before people start accusing me of just going of against American society and not looking at my own. I see similar patterns (though not as extreme) in the Netherlands. Here are a few examples. There seems to be a (hidden) racism by the cops at times (concerning checking for ID's). I know for a fact someone who was of mixed decent but a Dutch national always was picked out of line-ups at the airport for full baggage check (even though he as a businessman travelled regularly abroad). Whenever a non-white person is involved in some crime, the clamor for punishment seems to be much puder then when a white person is. Whenever there is a crime, if possible often fingers are pointed at foreigners before anything else. In my opinion the (newly) instituted immigration and refugee policies by this government and their application is broderline if not outright racist. The Brazilian shot in the aftermath of the London bombings is in many respects similar, IMHO (I doubt the cops would have shot so easily if he had been white). A huge factor in the Paris riots was laten racism which is similar (IMHOabout as much the same as possible) as what can be encountered in American cities.

 Ironically, groups being dicriminated against (at present or in the past) tend to produce their own racism as well.

 Unfortunately, racsim is a natural human trait. Anyone who states that he/she has never had racist thought is a liar. The big question is how one acts and reacts when such thoughts occur.

 Just my euro 0.02, of someone who has less and less faith in human society and politics in general.

so lemme get this right...the people who have lots of money and were able to protect themselves with insurance are getting all the help now...while the people who truly need help are getting none...
Yes, the richer neighborhoods are getting rebuilt faster, but as has been pointed out, those neighborhoods have the benefit of being built in more protected areas of town, and have the benefit of residents who had insurance.  Where is the evidence of impropriety?

Quote
but could they at least make a concerted effort to lure the black residents back to town
Why?  Why should black people get more attention than anyone else?

Quote
...whites are getting trailers in new orleans while blacks have to move to other parts of the country...govt money is being spent in only white neighborhoods...shouldnt it at least be equal...
That is your claim, but this article isn't about what you are talking about:

Quote
Disparities in wealth and in the distance of evacuees from their ruined houses are dictating, in many cases, which neighborhoods will be part of the city's future and which will be consigned to its history.
Disparities in wealth: got mo money
Distance of evacuees: rich folk could pay to stay in more expensive, local establishments.  Poor folk had to go where the government could find places for them.

Quote
"Every day and every week is better, and people need to know that," said Bea Quaintance. With the help of a trailer from the Federal Emergency Management Agency that is parked in her front yard, she and her husband, Gary, and their son, Steven, were the first family back on Memphis Street. "I think this country has done a wonderful job of providing for us."
You may have a point here, but the question is, where should FEMA spend their efforts - help in the neighborhoods where people are returning and rebuilding, or in the areas which have been abandoned?  Do you restore utilities and critical services in the neighborhoods where homes are being rebuilt, or to the areas where people can't afford to return?

Quote
but blacks were poor so what does it matter...they can just be poor somewhere else right?
Don't confuse the issue - is this about economics, or race?  Are you telling me that there are no black people rebuilding in those rich neighborhoods?  No white people displaced with no hope of return?

The bottom line is that all the differences described in this article are about economics.  Show me where it says that a poor white neighborhood is being rebuilt while a poor black neighborhood is not.  Show me where it says that a rich black family didn't have their power restored when their rich white neighbor did.  This article is full of racism...

Quote
...black residents, especially poor ones from the Lower Ninth Ward and the city's public housing projects, were much more likely than whites to end up living far out of town, according to city, state and federal studies.
So, no middle class blacks stayed near NO?

Quote
... Middle-class whites fled in their own cars and tended not to go so far,
I see, no middle class blacks in New Orleans...and if there were, they sure as hell didn't own cars.

Assumptions made by this article (and you):
1) the poor are not being treated as well as the rich
2) All poor people in NO are black
3) All rich people in NO are white
4) Therefore, white people are being treated better than black people - must be racism.

This is the same crap that happens all the time in the media.  There was a building with a cell tower on top, and 7 people in the building got cancer (http://www.theage.com.au/news/national/phone-tower-cancer-fears/2006/05/11/1146940676777.html).  Must be the cell tower.  Let's ignore the fact that there are thousands of buildings with cell towers that don't have similar cancer rates.  Let's ignore the fact that there may be other risk factors that these people have in common.  Let's ignore the fact that they don't even have the same kind of cancer...  The circumstances suit our agenda, so let's use correlation and assume causality.

Utter bullshtein.

Look, if you want to complain about why there are more poor blacks than poor whites, that's great.  If you want to show how instutional racism is keeping the black man in low income jobs, go for it.  But stop looking for racism where it isn't, and focus your efforts where you can have some hope of solving the problem.

I hate it when white folks look at black folks in a different light because of their skin color. And I hate it when blacks assume that all whites are racist. It angers me big time when both happen.

And while the white on black stuff happens more frequently, the black on white stuff is just as bad too. This is a touchy subject but it is something that is still going on. It's not 1950's and 60's bad, but its still there. And its sad to see.

West oak lane can't get a patrol because things have gotten so bad they don't want to get shot at, and then accused of police brutality when they fire back... It's kind of lose lose for everyone.

There are bad people in it for the wrong reasons in all 'institutions' because they are just a cross section of society and anything in our society that is a problem, like racism, will be a problem in the institution. It's made up of the same people.

A buddy of mine works on a local drug task force. I'm blown away by some of the stories he tells. You could stake out ANY hotel from Philly to California and make a drug bust within a week. Trafficking is absolutly HUGE! These guys seize millions of dollars in cash money and it doesn't even put a dent in the traffickers business. I'm afraid that drugs has become big business and there is no way to know how much the market is actually worth. Any business illegal or not with that kind of money behind it has a way of getting a pass through Government for all the wrong reasons. People are easily corruptable I'm afraid. I'm kind of amazed that it all stays together sometimes.

You want to talk about the real problem with the borders? I don't think it has anything to do with immigration and everything to do with drug trafficking.
Title: Re: institutional racism is alive and well in america

If you are asking for military force to be used on the home soil that sets a dangerous and completely new president. It is not one I would want to see here in the United States, however I think the right answer would be to invest more tax $$ into law enforcement and encourage local representation somehow, though I don’t agree with mandating that. If someone is willing to do the job I wouldn’t discourage them. The other thing is that you don’t want poor people to live in a “police” state. That has equally bad and racial ramifications. No easy answers really.

Didn’t Camden almost call in the National Guard at one point, but instead opted with the State Police? Wasn’t the local police force totally corrupt and useless thus causing the city to have the highest murder rate in the country or something? I don’t remember the details.

Unfortunately local government representation in poor neighborhoods will be even more susceptible to corruption. In the end human nature always gets in the way.

That was some funny ass shtein. 

As far as the rest of the thread goes I agree that racism is live and well across the board.  But to me saying that it is still as bad as 40 years ago is ridiculous.  It is not good but you can't tell me that it is nearly that bad, just look at interracial relationships you think that would fly back then as it does today?

Bush Wants Newcomers to Know English

By SUZANNE GAMBOA, Associated Press Writer 40 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - The White House took both sides in a dispute over English being the national language Friday as a broad immigration bill moved toward a final Senate vote next week with one conservative predicting it will never become law.

Bush's support for the dueling sides doesn't stray from his long-held view on learning English, said White House press secretary Tony Snow.

"What the president has said all along is that he wants to make sure that people who become American citizens have a command of the English language," Snow said. "It's as simple as that."

The Senate on Thursday approved an amendment sponsored by Sen. James Inhofe (news, bio, voting record), R-Okla., that would declare English the national language. But it also approved an alternative proposal sponsored by Sen. Ken Salazar, D-Colo., designating English the nation's "common and unifying language." Before the vote on the alternative, Inhofe warned his colleagues, "You can't have it both ways."

The White House seemed to. "We have supported both of these," Snow said of the two amendments.

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, speaking Friday in Houston, added to the confusion.

"The president has never supported making English the national language," Gonzales said, adding, "I don't see the need to have legislation or a law that says English is going to be the national language."


As governor of Texas and a presidential candidate in 2000, Bush supported bilingual education programs. He sprinkles Spanish into his presidential speeches and has released political commercials in Spanish. But he also has said the national anthem should be sung in English.

The president plans to address immigration reform in his weekly radio address Saturday. He has generally favored a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants and a guest worker program that would bring more foreigners to the U.S. to fill jobs. Both are central elements of the bill before the Senate.

Sen. Jeff Sessions (news, bio, voting record), R-Ala., an ardent opponent of the bill conceded Friday it is likely to pass next week. "The Senate should be ashamed of itself," he said. But he also predicted to reporters that it won't become law unless House and Senate negotiators rewrite it.

The adoption of Inhofe's amendment drew a heated protest Friday from Latinos.

John Trasvina, president and general counsel of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, said the amendment could be misinterpreted and lead to a cutback in services for those not proficient in English.

"Latinos don't need a law passed to say we ought to learn English. There are long waiting lists for adult English classes," Trasvina said. "It's false patriotism to pass an amendment to say you ought to learn English and not fulfill your responsibility of providing the opportunities."

New Mexico Sen. Pete Domenici (news, bio, voting record), the only Republican to reject the Inhofe proposal, said the country should "move beyond the notion that English, and English only, will ensure the future of the United States.

 :-D

As if enacting a "national" or "official" language in this country will have any effect on immigration problems.

Just more self-serving, xenophobic, patronizing stupidity from the clueless, bumbling fargtards in Washington.   :-D :-D

Not saying that I approve of making English an "official" language, but here is my opinion:

I have taught many students, living in Florida, that are dropped off at school and placed in my 8th grade U.S. History class.  I've had students that are fresh from their home country, whether Mexico, in Central or South America, or any other country (I've had one from the Czech Republic) dropped in my class because of their age.  These students don't know a smidge of English, and I don't speak their language, either (I have some elementary "get by" Spanish, but not enough to effectively teach a Spanish-speaking student).

These children should be getting basic English classes, but because of the way the law is written (called the "least restrictive environment" law), it is actually illegal to separate students merely on the basis of language.  I'm not saying take them out of all their classes, but taking them out of Social Studies (or another subject, such as computers or the such) in order to learn the language would be to me a better use of school time for these students.

Their parents should also be getting basic English lesson.  It's quite obvious that it would be extremely important.  Even thogh English isn't the official language, it is necessary to succeed in the United States to at least have a basic command of English.  Some way, some how everyone in the U.S. should learn to speak English, but it is qutie obvious that isn't happening.

Proposed Miss. license plate to honor KKK leader

EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS
The Associated Press

JACKSON, Miss. - A fight is brewing in Mississippi over a proposal to issue specialty license plates honoring Confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest, who was an early leader of the Ku Klux Klan.

The Mississippi Division of Sons of Confederate Veterans says it wants to sponsor a series of state-issued license plates to mark the 150th anniversary of what it calls the "War Between the States." The group proposes a different design each year between now and 2015, with Forrest slated for 2014.

"Seriously?" state NAACP president Derrick Johnson said when he was told about the Forrest plate. "Wow."

Forrest, a Tennessee native, is revered by some as a military genius and reviled by others for leading the 1864 massacre of black Union troops at Fort Pillow, Tenn. Forrest was a Klan grand wizard in Tennessee after the war.

Sons of Confederate Veterans member Greg Stewart said he believes Forrest distanced himself from the Klan later in life. It's a point many historians agree upon, though some believe it was too little, too late, because the Klan had already turned violent before Forrest left.

"If Christian redemption means anything , and we all want redemption, I think , he redeemed himself in his own time, in his own actions, in his own words," Stewart said. "We should respect that."

State Department of Revenue spokeswoman Kathy Waterbury said legislators would have to approve a series of Civil War license plates. She said if every group that has a specialty license plate wanted a redesign every year, it would take an inordinate amount time from Department of Revenue employees who have other duties.

SCV has not decided what the Forrest license plate would look like, Stewart said. Opponents are using their imagination.

A Facebook group called "Mississippians Against The Commemoration Of Grand Wizard Nathan Forrest" features a drawing of a hooded klansman in the center of a regular Mississippi car tag.

Robert McElvaine, director of history department at the private Millsaps College in Jackson, joined the Facebook group. McElvaine said Forrest's role at Fort Pillow and involvement in the Klan make him unworthy of being honored, even on the bumpers of cars.

"The idea of celebrating such a person, whatever his accomplishments in other areas may have been, seems like a very poor idea," McElvaine told The Associated Press.

Mississippi lawmakers have shown a decidedly laissez-faire attitude toward allowing a wide variety groups to have speciality license plates, which usually sell for an extra $30 to $50 a year. The state sells more than 100 specialty plates for everything from wildlife conservation to breast cancer awareness. One design says "God Bless America," another depicts Elvis Presley. Among the biggest sellers are NASCAR designs and one with the slogan "Choose Life."

The Mississippi Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans has had a state-issued specialty license plate since 2003 to raise money for restoration of Civil War-era flags. From 2003 through 2010, the design featured a small Confederate battle flag.

The Department of Revenue allowed the group to revise the license plate this year for the first of the Civil War sesquicentennial designs. The 2011 plate, now on sale, depicts the Beauvoir mansion in Biloxi, Miss., the final home of Jefferson Davis, the Confederate president.

SCV wants license plates to feature Civil War battles that took place in Mississippi. It proposes a Battle of Corinth design for 2012 and Siege of Vicksburg design for 2013. Stewart said the 2015 plate would be a tribute to Confederate veterans.

Johnson, with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said he's not bothered by Civil War commemorative license plates generally. But he said Mississippi shouldn't honor Forrest, who was an early leader of what he calls "a terrorist group."

"He should be viewed in the same light that we view Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden," Johnson said of Forrest. "The state of Mississippi should deny any vanity tags which would highlight racial hatred in this state."

Democratic Rep. Willie Bailey, who handles license plate requests in the House, said he has no problem with SCV seeking any design it wants.

"If they want a tag commemorating veterans of the Confederacy, I don't have a problem with it," said Bailey, who is black. "They have that right. We'll look at it. As long as it's not offensive to anybody, then they have the same rights as anybody else has."

Human beings who are getting farged aren't the best at getting themselves unfarged.  They all want to stop getting farged, sure.  Some of them even know who's farging them and how, and they want revenge, or better still, justice.  Most just want a Lexus.

I'm sure old black folk in Mississippi know something more about racism than I do, but frankly that's irrelevant.  Not every black person knows better than every white person who is farging the black people and how.   Even a white swamp yankee can see that real racism, which affects lives much more directly than a dude's name on a license plate, is alive and well. 

To expend energy chasing after every vague whiff of racism is foolish.  So yeah, maybe after a fight you'll prevent the plates from being issued.  Big farging deal.

Meanwhile we have ample proof that drug arrests discriminate against black men, and that black renters continue to be subject to prejudice because of race, to name two far greater examples of racism at work which affect real people in real life. 

But, No.  We gotta worry about these license plates.  Or what Imus said.  Or...or...

It's a bullshtein distraction from the real deal. 

I make no apologies for my position. I'd gladly discuss it with black people, but since I'm a white person from Connecticut I'm not fortunate enough to know any of them.  Luckily, I've got you to speak on their behalf, igy.

  An e-mail from a Cherry Hill schools official that has been interpreted as containing racially charged wording has prompted an internal investigation and sparked outrage.

The e-mail from school operations director Kevin Larson, sent after a snowstorm last month, was to tell an elementary school principal why workers from the township Public Works Department would not be available to clear school grounds.

"All of my polar bears, trained seals and the two silver back mountain gorillas on loan from the Township DPW (you should see them with a snow blower that has a banana tied to the front of it, they go through a blizzard like nothing you have ever seen . . .) are already strategically reassigned. Sorry," the e-mail reads.

Larson did not return a phone call for comment.

News of the e-mail, and its perceived racial undertones, has quickly spread around the township since it was first reported Saturday. Mayor Bernie Platt has been vocal since the e-mail was forwarded to the township Thursday.

"It was reprehensible and discriminatory. I couldn't believe an employee of the school district would make statements like that," he said Monday.

Township Council President Dave Fleisher said he was approached at a youth softball tryout Saturday afternoon by three or four parents asking about the e-mail.

"They found it offensive and said they felt a high degree of empathy for the workers," Fleisher said.

The school district apologized for Larson's e-mail in a statement Monday and said an internal investigation was under way.

Colandus "Kelly" Francis, president of the NAACP's Camden County branch, said people should not be too quick to judge.

"It wasn't clear to me who the parties [he was] referring to were," said Francis, who read the e-mail in the Camden Courier-Post over the weekend. "The workers, they were referred to by these characterizations, but it wasn't clear to me what race they were."

But the fact that two of the township's 52 public works employees are African American leaves little doubt in the minds of critics.

Fleisher met with public works employees Monday afternoon as they were preparing for more snow.

"Some of them spoke up, and they all found it offensive," he said. "They felt they have not received an adequate apology yet."

Platt declined to say whether he wanted to see Larson fired, saying that was the school board's decision. But the mayor said he did not plan to drop the issue.

If Larson stays with the school district, "the relationship will be a strained relationship to begin with," he said. "But I can't make that call."

School Board President Seth Klukoff referred questions to the school district.

In the NFL, I was ostracized from Day One — not by my teammates but by my defensive coordinator. I was drafted by the Bears in 1983. My first day walking into Halas Hall, I met Buddy Ryan. He knew I'd gone to Notre Dame, and he asked me if I was one of those doctors or lawyers. I said, "Yes, sir." He said, "Well, you won't be here too long, because I don't like smart stillupfronts."

I worked for Buddy for three years, and there was not a day that he did not remind me that I was not his draft pick, that he did not want me there or something to that effect: "You won't be here too long because I'm trying my best to get you out of here." That kind of thing. And so it was a very lonely feeling in that regard.

It was not motivational at all. The guy simply hated my guts, without question.

The way the article was written the author makes it sound plausible, but it's just hard to believe. Buddy was as beloved by his players as any coach I know. I guess there were exceptions with players he didn't like. Still, even back then, hard to believe.


edit: "stillupfronts" is the N-bomb (I didn't know that before).

That's my take, former players are coming out in Buddy's defense now. If it was true you'd think Duerson would have told somebody back then who would corroborate it now, and it might have been the end of Buddy's career back then, which Buddy would also have realized.

OGLETHORPE COUNTY, Ga. -- A Georgia Republican says he was stunned when a constituent at a town hall meeting asked about assassinating President Barack Obama.

Broun said he moved onto the next person with a question to not dignify the shooting question with an answer. He also said he alerted the Secret Service.

After initial reports of the exchange had gained national attention by Friday, Broun issued a statement calling the question "abhorrent."

Are whites racially oppressed?

(CNN) -- They marched on Washington to reclaim civil rights.

They complained of voter intimidation at the polls.

They called for ethnic studies programs to promote racial pride.

They are, some say, the new face of racial oppression in this nation -- and their faces are white.

"We went from being a privileged group to all of a sudden becoming whites, the new victims,'' says Charles Gallagher, a sociologist at La Salle University in Pennsylvania who researches white racial attitudes and was baffled to find that whites see themselves as a minority.

"You have this perception out there that whites are no longer in control or the majority. Whites are the new minority group."

Call it racial jujitsu: A growing number of white Americans are acting like a racially oppressed majority. They are adopting the language and protest tactics of an embattled minority group, scholars and commentators say.

They point to these signs of racial anxiety:

• A recent Public Religion Research Institute poll found 44% of Americans surveyed identify discrimination against whites as being just as big as bigotry aimed at blacks and other minorities. The poll found 61% of those identifying with the Tea Party held that view, as did 56% of Republicans and 57% of white evangelicals.

• More colleges are offering courses in "Whiteness Studies" as white Americans cope with becoming what one commentator calls a "dispossessed majority group."

• A Texas group recently formed the "Former Majority Association for Equality" to offer college scholarships to needy white men. Colby Bohannan, the group's president, says white men don't have scholarship options available to minorities. "White males are definitely not a majority" anymore, he says.

• U.S. Census Bureau projections that whites will become a minority by 2050 are fueling fears that whiteness no longer represents the norm. This fear has been compounded by the recent recession, which hit whites hard.

• Conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh argued in a radio show that Republicans are an "oppressed minority" in need of a "civil rights movement" because its members willingly sit in the "back of the bus" and "are afraid of the fire hoses and the dogs."

• Fox talk-show host Glenn Beck led a march on Washington (attended primarily by white people) to "restore honor," and once called President Obama a racist with a "deep-seated hatred for white people and white culture." He later said he regretted making that comment.

• Conservative news outlets ran a number of stories last summer highlighting an incident from the 2008 elections, in which activists from the New Black Panther Party appeared to be intimidating voters at a polling place. Those claims were never proven.

Mass rallies in Washington, voter intimidation at the polls, creating ethnic studies programs at colleges to promote racial self-awareness -- it sounds like a script from a civil rights documentary.

But not everyone buys that script. Mona Charen, a conservative columnist for the National Review, challenges that view with this question: If more white Americans feel like an embattled minority, why did they elect President Barack Obama?

"Did they become racist after electing the first black president?" she asks.

Charen says the United States today is "incredibly tolerant and open."

Sure, she says, there are individuals who nurture racial animosity, but most Americans deserve praise for looking past race.

The proof, she says, isn't just in the fact that the nation elected its first black president. She cites the rise of more interracial couples.

"When I grew up, it was incredibly rare to see interracial couples," she says. "People would turn their heads on the streets. Now it's so common that no one notices it anymore."

When white is no longer the norm

The notion that many white Americans feel anxious about their race is not new. Today, however, economic anxieties are feeding those racial fears, says Tim Wise, author of "White Like Me."

Wise says the recession hit blue-collar, white Americans hard, financially and psychologically.

Many white Americans have lived under the assumption that if they worked hard, they would be rewarded. Now more white Americans are sharing unemployment lines with "those people" -- black and brown, Wise says.

"For the first time since the Great Depression, white Americans have been confronted with a level of economic insecurity that we're not used to," he says. "It's not so new for black and brown folks, but for white folks, this is something we haven't seen since the Depression."

Economic insecurity is what Colby Bohannan says convinced him to form the "Former Majority Association for Equality." The association is awarding $500 scholarships to five deserving white men because they aren't eligible for scholarships reserved for women and minorities, he says.

"Living in America, you hear about this minority or that minority, but it's never been used in the same sense for Caucasian Americans," Bohannan says. "There was no one for white males until we came around."

Bohannan says the formation of his group was not motivated by racism, nor will it accept donations from hate groups.

"We're not trying to promote racial bigotry," Bohannan says. "All we're about is helping college students trying to better their lives who happen to be white males."

Some white Americans not only feel ignored in higher education; they feel excluded by popular culture.

The face of America is changing, says Wise, author of "White Like Me." American culture has become so multicultural that many of the nation's icons -- including celebrities, sports heroes, and other leaders -- are people of color.

"The very definition of being an American is going through a profound change," Wise says. "We can no longer take it for granted that we (whites) are the dictionary definition of an American."

This racial unease is more pronounced among older white Americans, who grew up in an era where America's icons were virtually all white, Wise says.

"The idea that we're losing our country is something that's not going to have a lot of resonance for someone under 30," Wise says. "These are white folks who don't remember the country that their parents are talking about."

With white no longer the norm, more white Americans are hitting the books to ask a question that few felt a need to ask before: What does it mean to be white?

"Whiteness Studies" began popping up in a few isolated academic institutions in the 1990s. Now such programs can be found in places such as the University of Wisconsin and the University of Utah. These courses examine what whiteness has meant during different periods of American history.

For many decades, white people saw themselves as individuals, not as members of a race, says Matt Wray, a sociologist at Temple University in Pennsylvania, who writes books about white studies.

"We are often offended if someone calls attention to our race as shaping how we view the world," says Wray, author of "Not Quite White." "We don't like to be pigeon-holed that way. Non-white Americans are seldom afforded this luxury of seeing themselves as individuals, disconnected from any race."

Still, Wray says anxiety among whites over their place in America is nothing new. Some 19th century whites worried about slave revolts. During segregation. some worried about blacks they labeled as "uppity Negroes."

"Whites have never really felt terribly secure in their majority status," he says. "It's often said that it is lonely at the top, but it's also an anxious place to be, because you live in constant fear of falling."

'Diversity is not strength'

Some white commentators are unapologetic about this racial anxiety.

Peter Brimelow, author of "Alien Nation: Common Sense About America's Immigration Disaster," asserts that much of white America's anxiety derives from living under a black president and changing demographics.

Diversity, he says, "is not strength."

Brimelow's website, VDARE.COM, has been described as a hate site by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a group that tracks extremist groups in the U.S.

Some may see him as extreme, but Brimelow argues in his columns that more white Americans are moving toward his stance on immigration and other issues.

He cites as proof the rise of the Tea Party movement and the racial makeup of Beck's march on Washington. He says more whites recognize, even if it's only on a subliminal level, that they have common interests to defend.

"Of course, they would deny this, quite sincerely, if you put it to them because the idea of whites defending their interests as whites is quite new," he says. "Americans are trained to think that any explicit defense of white interests is 'racist.' "

James Edwards, host of the "Political Cesspool" radio show, isn't shy about naming those interests. He says white Americans have become the "dispossessed majority" and that coming demographic changes may turn the United States into a "Third-World flop-house."

Edwards, who is considered a white nationalist by the Southern Poverty Law Center, says whites must organize like other stigmatized groups.

"There is nothing wrong for Jewish organizations to promote the self-interest of Jews or black organizations to promote the interest of blacks," he says. "There is no organization to stand up to advance the interests of the dispossessed majority."

Those white interests have been compromised by what he sees as the "preferential treatment" blacks have received in the job market to compensate for slavery, Edwards says.

"Whatever mistakes might have been made in our pasts, they have not only been corrected, but they've been overcompensated for," he says.

Now whites are victims of pervasive racism, Edwards says.

"They're the victims of it every day. Anything a white conservative does that a liberal doesn't like is called racism."

Both Brimelow and Edwards reject outright the Southern Poverty Law Center's description of their organizations as extremist.

'It's not a race issue, it's a principle'

Ginger Howard is a white Southerner who doesn't feel dispossessed. She attended Beck's rally last summer and described it as a religious event, not a political one.

"It was such an amazing event to be with such like-minded people," she says.

Beck says he held the rally to reclaim the civil rights movement "from politics." He held the rally on the anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington, where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have Dream Speech."

Howard says she attended because she wanted to raise money for U.S. troops and protest against government dependency.

"It's not a race issue, it's a principle issue," says Howard, owner of the Ginger Howard Selections clothing store in Atlanta, Georgia.

Chris Plante, a conservative talk show host, says white racial anxiety isn't a race issue but a smokescreen by leftists. Plante says they yell racism to avoid talking about Obama's "unpopular liberal expansion" of the federal government.

Plante, who says he grew up in a Chicago home with a picture of Martin Luther King Jr. on the wall, attended both Beck's rally and a follow-up rally by Jon Stewart, host of the Daily Show.

Stewart and fellow Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert held their "March to Keep Fear Alive" on the National Mall two months after Beck's rally. Stewart said he held the rally for people tired of the media portraying America as a divided country.

"The Beck crowd was no more white than the Jon Stewart rally, but nobody in the news media described the Stewart crowd as overwhelmingly white," Plante says.

'Hunkering down'

One prominent observer of American culture suggests all Americans -- white, black and every other minority -- should be concerned about the future.

Robert Putnam, author of the celebrated book, "Bowling Alone," says his studies of multiracial neighborhoods in America suggest that more diversity doesn't initially create more tolerance. It can erode community.

In his 2007 book, "E Pluribus Unum: Diversity and Community in the Twenty-first Century," Putnam says his studies of diverse communities show that in the short run, its members tend to expect the worst, distrust neighbors and withdraw.

"Residents of all races tend to 'hunker down,' '' Putnam writes. "Trust (even of one's own race) is lower, altruism and community cooperation rarer, friends fewer."

Is this America's future?

Dueling mass rallies in Washington? Dueling complaints of racial persecution? Dueling versions of ethnic history?

It doesn't have to be, says Gallagher, the La Salle University sociologist.

Gallagher points out that the United States has accommodated massive change before. Women were once thought too emotional to vote, interracial couples were outlawed, blacks enslaved.

He says his children won't see race the same way that he or other generations did. They won't see diversity as a weakness.

It'll just be a way of life.

"Like it or not, the country is going to look more like it should -- more brown folks, more yellow folks, more gay folks, more mixed folks," he says.

It's easy to be pessimistic, he says, but his profession teaches him to look past the headlines.

"When you take the long view of human history, change is slow, but change happens."

Proposed Texas immigration law contains convenient loophole for ‘the help’
By Brett Michael Dykes

Texas has long been a hotbed of controversy on immigration issues. And a proposed immigration bill in the Texas state House is sure to raise more than a few eyebrows. The bill would make hiring an "unauthorized alien" a crime punishable by up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine, unless that is, they are hired to do household chores.

Yes, under the House Bill 2012 introduced by a tea party favorite state Rep. Debbie Riddle -- who's been saying for some time that she'd like to see Texas institute an Arizona-style immigration law -- hiring an undocumented maid, caretaker, lawnworker or any type of houseworker would be allowed. Why? As Texas state Rep. Aaron Pena, also a Republican, told CNN, without the exemption, "a large segment of the Texas population" would wind up in prison if the bill became law.

"When it comes to household employees or yard workers it is extremely common for Texans to hire people who are likely undocumented workers," Pena told the news giant. "It is so common it is overlooked."

Jon English, Rep. Riddle's chief of staff explained that the exemption was an attempt to avoid "stifling the economic engine" in Texas, which today is, somewhat ironically, celebrating its declaring independence from Mexico in 1836.

"Excepting household workers from a anti-immigration laws renders the law impotent and self-contradictory, just like the current U.S. immigration policy, of which it is almost a perfect microcosm," legal ethics writer Jack Marshall wrote on his blog. "It guarantees a measure without integrity that sends a mixed enforcement message and does nothing to stop the long-standing deplorable 'we don't want you but somebody has to do those menial jobs' attitude that has paralyzed our immigration policy for decades."

Rep. Riddle made headlines last year when she claimed unnamed FBI officials had told her that pregnant women from the Middle East were traveling to America as tourists to give birth, and then raising their children to be terrorists who could later enter the U.S. freely as citizens -- so-called "terror babies," a devious offshoot of "anchor babies." She became somewhat infamous on the web when she stumbled repeatedly in a CNN interview about the claims, complaining later that host Anderson Cooper's line of questioning was more intense than she had prepared for.

"They did not tell me you were going to grill me on specific information that I was not ready to give to you tonight," Riddle said when Cooper pressed her for more details. "They did not tell me that, sir."

so its ok for rich white texans to keep their slaves but all other illegals gotta go and if you hire any of them you are going to jail

I know he's a god to you, so this is for anyone else who might not have read it.  David Simon's statement on the arrest is on point:

Quote
First of all, Felicia's entitled to the presumption of innocence. And I would note that a previous, but recent drug arrest that targeted her was later found to be unwarranted and the charges were dropped. Nonetheless, I'm certainly sad at the news today. This young lady has, from her earliest moments, had one of the hardest lives imaginable. And whatever good fortune came from her role in 'The Wire' seems, in retrospect, limited to that project. She worked hard as an actor and was entirely professional, but the entertainment industry as a whole does not offer a great many roles for those who can portray people from the other America. There are, in fact, relatively few stories told about the other America.

Beyond that, I am waiting to see whether the charges against Felicia relate to heroin or marijuana. Obviously, the former would be, to my mind, a far more serious matter. And further, I am waiting to see if the charges or statement of facts offered by the government reflect any involvement with acts of violence, which would of course be of much greater concern.

In an essay published two years ago in Time Magazine, the writers of 'The Wire' made the argument that we believe the war on drugs has devolved into a war on the underclass, that in places like West and East Baltimore, where the drug economy is now the only factory still hiring and where the educational system is so crippled that the vast majority of children are trained only for the corners, a legal campaign to imprison our most vulnerable and damaged citizens is little more than amoral. And we said then that if asked to serve on any jury considering a non-violent drug offense, we would move to nullify that jury's verdict and vote to acquit. Regardless of the defendant, I still believe such a course of action would be just in any case in which drug offenses -- absent proof of violent acts -- are alleged.

Both our Constitution and our common law guaranty that we will be judged by our peers. But in truth, there are now two Americas, politically and economically distinct. I, for one, do not qualify as a peer to Felicia Pearson. The opportunities and experiences of her life do not correspond in any way with my own, and her America is different from my own. I am therefore ill-equipped to be her judge in this matter.

You guys have called me a racist in the past for some reason. Let me let you in on something, you people have no idea what racism is. I moved to South Carolina for work a few months ago and WOW, there are some REAL RACIST people here. It's wrong to generalize so I won't. For the most part everyone is very tolerant and race neutral, but when you run into a racist, they are not shy about it. I used to like a good racist, sexist, or religious joke. but now, it really makes me cringe. Some of these people actually believe the stereotypes! I was here for the Ft Sumter re-enactment that many black groups found offensive. The reallity is that most of the people don't yearn for the return of slavery (afterall all former slave owners are dead) but they do yearn for the old days of an agricultural economy that made the south so prosperous.

my fax machine went down at work yesterday so I call verizon to come check the lines..about an hour or so later, a guy (middle age, white guy) walks in and fixes the line for us. As I'm signing his paperwork, he asks me if I've seen a picture of the new West Point Commandant, which was officially announced the day before. Seeing as no one I work with had seen any pics yet, I should have known the guy was setting me up - he opened his newspaper and turned to a picture of a black guy on a podium speaking at a local school budget meeting. He tells me thats the new comm and proceeds with "uh, hello there students - this be your new comm, etc... Could you imagine if THAT GUY was in charge of the cadets??"

Meh..teacher could well have been trying to call out how awful slavery was by running some of the numbers home to his/her pupils.  Slavery was real.  Plenty of Fredericks got beat twice a day.

I really don't care.  Crap like this is a diversion of attention from actual racism.  Highway pull-over rates.  Drug arrest rates.  Drug sentencing.  Denial of equal housing.

White Men Rule

So why do so many of them whine about how tough it is to be a white man?
     
I have been a white male all my life and to tell you the truth, I have found it to be a pretty sweet deal. If you doubt me and would like to see a demonstration of just how sweet it is to be a white guy in modern day America – just come with me and stand in the visitor’s gallery of the U.S. Senate sometime when they are all gathered for a vote and look down upon that fleshy sea of men. Of the 100 members of the U.S. Senate, just 17 are women. And in the entire history of our country, only six African American have served in the Senate. White men rule.

It’s the same in the U.S. House of Representatives, where women make up just 17 percent of the current membership. It’s the men who rule.

In the 220 year history of the Supreme Court, only four women justices have ever served. And three of those women are on the court right now. In the entire history of the nation, there have only been two African American Justices. So half of all the African Americans who have ever served are on the court right now: Clarence Thomas. Again, white men rule.

Of the Fortune 500 companies in 2011, just 12 of America’s biggest companies were run by women. And there are currently just eight African American CEOs. You guessed it: White men rule.

Wherever you look and by almost any metric, any statistic, it works out to be a pretty sweet deal to start out life as a white male. And if I ever become deranged and suddenly start to kill all of the people who annoy me on Facebook with a potato peeler, I have the comfort of knowing I will stand a lower chance of being executed for my crimes just because I am white. If you’ve seen Facebook these days, you know what a relief that can be.

So I cannot, for the life of me, understand why so many white men like me can be found whining about how tough it is to be a white man. It’s a mystery to me how they came to feel so beset on every side by feminists, minorities, and “the system.” When in fact, the system is so stacked in our favor, it’s almost embarrassing. It’s like our mothers set up the world for us. For white men, life is almost like T-ball. We are almost guaranteed to get on base. But lately, some of us seem to be having issues with self-esteem.

So it’s especially strange to see white men like Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and various “Men’s Rights” groups complaining bitterly about the re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which may come up for a vote this week. Grassley and the far right don’t want to see it pass in its current form because it extends some of its protections to LGBT victims, Native American victims, and some illegal immigrants. Because of what? Because it should be OK to brutalize them?

For the first time since the law was passed, it has become politicized. And in a move to make up for voting for the awful anti-women Blunt amendment, Senator Scott Brown says he’s for it.

The passage of the bill has also been muddied by — well — mud. Stuff crazy people make up and throw out there to make it seem like it’s somehow a radical or controversial idea to try to stop people from beating up women. The Southern Poverty Law Center, which, among other things, tracks hate groups, has now started paying attention to some “Men’s Rights” groups that seem to just flat-out hate women. One of the things these groups like to do is generate baloney statistics about how men are the “real victims” of domestic violence.

I know this sounds a little crazy. But just take a look on the web. Watch this YouTube clip from some guy who looks kind of normal and then he goes on about how feminism is a form of stealth genocide and how feminism and the courts have criminalized fatherhood. He claims that the system is ready to put most men in jail. But for people in the lower class who don’t really care — because they spend most of their time there anyway — so it’s like a second home to them. If this doesn’t seem crazy to you, I suggest you seek professional help.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GB2C-2dhcsE&feature=player_embedded

In a piece titled Men’s Rights Movement Spreads False Claims about Women the SPLC points out that a 2005 Department of Justice study also found that between 1998 and 2002, 84 percent of spousal abuse victims were female, as were 86 percent of victims of abuse at the hands of a dating partner. Males made up 83 percent of all spouse murderers and 75 percent of dating partner murderers. If you really really don’t want to get beat up, killed, or thrown in jail, my suggestion to you would be to become a white male

These men’s rights groups also, I am told, hate relatively normal men like me who generally find women to be good company. They call us “Manginas.” Cool. I think I may just get a button with that on it.

Wells Fargo's disgraceful discrimination scandal: A guide

The bank ponies up $175 million to settle accusations that it charged blacks and Latinos higher interest rates and fees on their mortgages
posted on July 13, 2012, at 4:24 PM


This week, Wells Fargo agreed to pay $175 million to settle charges that it discriminated against thousands of blacks, Latinos, and other minority borrowers between 2004 and 2009. The Justice Department had accused Wells Fargo, the country's largest mortgage lender, of charging minority borrowers higher interest rates and fees on home loans than it charged white borrowers with similar credit ratings. Thomas Perez, an assistant attorney general at the department, slammed Wells Fargo for levying the equivalent of a "racial surtax." People "should be judged by the content of their creditworthiness and not the color of their skin," he said. Here, a guide to the case:

What exactly did Wells Fargo do?
The Justice Department says Wells Fargo engaged in a pattern of "systemic discrimination" in which some 30,000 minority borrowers across 36 states were charged higher fees and interest rates than their white counterparts. A black borrower in Chicago, for example, paid an average of nearly $3,000 more in fees than a white applicant who had the same credit rating. A Latino borrower paid more than $2,000 extra. The average "surtax" for a black borrower in the Miami area in 2007 was $3,657. In addition, Wells Fargo steered some 4,000 minority borrowers with good credit toward subprime loans — which are usually reserved for those with shaky credit, and have interest rates that often spike after several years.

What does Wells Fargo say now?
Though it's coughing up a massive settlement, the bank did not officially admit wrongdoing, and claims that it settled the case "solely for the purpose of avoiding contested litigation" with the government. The bank stopped issuing subprime loans in 2008.

Why were minority borrowers treated differently?
The case was part of a recent phenomenon that civil rights groups call "reverse redlining," in which banks flooded poor, minority communities with predatory loans that contained hidden fees and interest rates. (Redlining in its original form dates to the days of segregation, when banks refused to give home loans to blacks.) The trend was spurred by financial innovations on Wall Street that made subprime loans profitable to investors — "and blacks were one of the largest untapped markets," says Ylan Q. Mui at The Washington Post. Reverse redlining played a significant role in the housing boom that preceded the 2008 financial crisis.

How has it affected minority communities?
The bust in the subprime market has had a disproportionate impact on blacks. The fallout has "left a scar on the finances of black Americans," says Mui, "one that not only has wiped out a generation of economic progress but could leave them at a financial disadvantage for decades." The Justice Department's case against Wells Fargo stems from a lawsuit filed by the city of Baltimore, which found that its minority communities were decimated by the housing crisis. In late 2011, Bank of America settled a similar discrimination lawsuit in which it paid out $335 million.

What happens to the settlement money?
Wells Fargo will use $125 million to compensate affected borrowers. The remaining $50 million will go toward helping people in eight metropolitan areas' minority communities, including Baltimore's, make down payments or improve their homes.

The word can be used as a derogatory term for blacks, and is often associated with Mondays being one of the most-hated days of the week, such as in the common phrase, "I hate Mondays."

I joined my local VFW over the weekend. While sitting at a table with a few people I casually know, some dude joins comes over and sits with us.  He's introduced to me and asks if I like basketball (was wearing the free t shirt the 6ers gave out opening day) and I said yes. He then says that he doesn't like it because there are too many darkies. A few people chuckled and I said "too many what?" and he repeated himself. I got in his shtein and he came back with the typical "I have black friends" crap. Asked him if he ever used the term "darkies" in front of them and naturally he avoided the question.  He walks over to me and tried to make nice and says "Well let me tell you about gays..." and I was like dude, you really don't want to go there. Finished my drink and left.  I could just ignore it and not go back but I love cheap drinks and there are some really good people in there. So instead I think I'll put my some of my free time to good use and start going to the monthly meetings and bitch up a storm about it.  Doubt it'll do any good but there are a few black members at this post so if nothing else, I'm sure they'd appreciate knowing who the closet racists are.

Yet those same resisters—most glaringly, Tea Partiers—cherish the entitlements and benefits provided by "Big Government." Their objections come when outsider groups ask for consideration, too. Even recent immigrants to this country sense the "hidden hand" of Calhoun's style of dissent, the extended lineage of rearguard politics, with its aggrieved call, heard so often today, "to take back America"—that is, to take America back to the "better" place it used to be. Today's conservatives have fully embraced this tradition, enshrining it as their own "Lost cause," redolent with the moral consolations of noble defeat.

Oberlin College canceled classes on Monday and convened a “day of solidarity” instead, after a person wearing a robe and hood appeared near its Afrikan Heritage House early Monday morning, the latest in a string of what it described as hate-related incidents and vandalism in the last month.

That event and a number of others are being investigated by the college’s security staff and the Oberlin city police.

The sighting of the person on Monday, “in addition to the series of other hate-related incidents on campus, has precipitated our decision to suspend formal classes and all nonessential activities for today, Monday, March 4, 2013, and gather for a series of discussions of the challenging issues that have faced our community in recent weeks,” according to a statement issued by Marvin Krislov, Oberlin’s president, and three college deans.

In the last month, a number of racist and antigay messages have been left around campus, a jarring incongruity in a place with the liberal political leanings and traditions of Oberlin, a school of 2,800 students in Ohio, about 30 miles southwest of Cleveland. Guides to colleges routinely list it as among the most liberal, activist and gay-friendly schools in the country.

“I’m not sure why anyone is doing it, but those actions have made people uneasy and say we need to come together and discuss this,” said Scott Wargo, an Oberlin spokesman.

Founded in 1833, Oberlin was one of the first colleges in the nation to educate women and men together, and one of the first to admit black students. Before the Civil War, it was an abolitionist hotbed and an important stop on the underground railroad.

The comments directed at that woman are indeed repulsive.  That said, none of them involved threats, only deranged wishes (as in, I hope you get raped or killed or whatever).   

Prosecuting people for their thoughts or wishes is equally repulsive.  I mean, what's next - re-education camps for people who express negative thoughts?

As much as I'd like to be in support of that, I'm not.  Hating a person based on race or gender or religion or orientation is awful.  We all know this.  But it's absolutely inconceivable for a person's thoughts or opinions on anything to be criminal.  If someone wants to waste their life being hateful towards others, fine by me.  I've got more important shtein to do.

No, seriously, I think the cop shouldn't start with a strangle hold when the guy hasn't touched him or appeared to be violent.  Once the guy started resisting arrest, then I can understand the increased force.

I thought the Being White in Philly was interesting.  I don't live there but I can understand the viewpoint.

new nra president seems like a swell guy....

Quote
HOUSTON — It seems new National Rifle Association President (NRA) president Jim Porter may have found himself in a bit of hot water. Not long ago he made his feelings about the Civil War known when he referred to it as the “War of Northern Aggression.” In that same speech he referred to President Obama as a “fake president” and Attorney General Eric Holder as “rabidly un-American.” However none of those remarks that anyone could deem as racist compare to his remarks made at a recent press conference discussing his new leadership role at the NRA.
 
“I’m very proud to be taking the lead here at the NRA. We need to really buckle down and strap on our best arguments to defend what is our God-given rights. No more northern folk tryin’ take away what is rightfully ours. I will not stand by and let some liberal-elitists try to ruin what has made this country great, especially a liberal of, you know, a different breed.”
 
When asked to clarify Porter said,

“I don’t have to clarify. You know gall darn well what I mean. In fact, it’s only a matter of time before we can own colored people again. They sure as hell won’t be our leaders. It’s out-right embarrassing. The War of Northern Aggression made it all possible, and you be best to know it’s all gonna change back. I’ll be on the front lines making sure it happens. I don’t want my grandkids growing up taking orders from a colored man. It’s our God-given right to keep them as property and keep them in line.”

I don't want to think you're this obtuse, SD but you aren't helping.  People do "bat an eye" when such things are said, though to be fair the greasy wops have been so long out of the ghettos that they don't often suffer slurs of that kind anymore.  Latinos however, they get that treatment all the time and while people like you may think it's cool to call them Paco and Taco, the rest of us understand that it's insulting.  You and Sergio are of course free to be insulting, though.  Ignorance may be disgusting, but it's not illegal.

You don't say.  The Navy, huh?  Well shtein, if the professional killers of the water, known around the world for progressive thoughtful policy, mark the birth of one of the world's most admired and celebrated peacemakers by serving soul food, then that must be a respectful homage to his legacy, and an appropriate way to honor all colored folk.  What did they do for Mother's day?  Hand out free tampons and aprons?

And when asked if she wanted black men to play the role of slaves at a wedding she explained she got the idea from a restaurant her husband and her had dined at saying, “The whole entire waiter staff was middle-aged black men, and they had on beautiful white jackets with a black bow tie.
 
“I mean, it was really impressive. That restaurant represented a certain era in America … after the Civil War, during the Civil War, before the Civil War…It was not only black men, it was black women … I would say they were slaves.”

The 100-plus members of Tsagaan Khass have recently shifted their focus from activities such as attacks on women it accuses of consorting with foreign men to environmental issues. The group is rebranding itself now as an environmentalist organization fighting pollution by foreign-owned mines, seeking legitimacy as it sends Swastika-wearing members to check mining permits.

Just re-read the article, and see nothing that says Flutie is Muslim.  Here's the only paragraph that Flutie's name appears in:

Quote
There is nothing more mainstream in American culture than sports. Of course Arab and Muslim Americans have been making their mark on sports for decades. Muhammad Ali and Kareem Abdul Jabbar were Americans who embraced Islam and revolutionized their respective sports, helping to introduce a religion that was foreign to the average American. Doug Flutie, of Boston College-Hail Mary fame, is an Arab American who left an indelible mark on college football. A young cadre of Arab-American stars are also rising in the NHL (yes, Arabs on Ice!), including Nazem Kadri of the Maple Leafs, Justin Abdelkader of Detroit and newly minted Stanly Cup Champion Brandon Saad of the Chicago Blackhawks.

Unless in my tiredness from driving down the coast I am completely lacking in reading comprehension, I still see nothing that actually ties in Flutie to the Islamic faith, but just referring to his "Arab" (in Flutie's case, Lebanese) heritage.  This, in my estimation (warning:  this is my speculation) actually suggests that Flutie is NOT Muslim.  It seems to me that if the author had any knowledge of Flutie being Islamic, he would have stated it in the article, as it would have helped his case.

The jury decided properly.  There was no case against Zimmerman.  The prosecution offered some circumstantial evidence and that's about it.  The standard to convict is exceptionally high, as it should be, and I commend the jury for hewing to the law.

Obviously, Zimmerman is a terrible person, but that's neither here nor there.  According to the law and the available evidence, the man is not guilty.  Deal with it.

Zimmerman stalked Martin.  Zimmerman confronted Martin.  Zimmerman pulled a gun out and shot a teenage boy in cold blood.   If Zimmerman wasn't acting like a wannabe cop in the first place and had not provoked the incident he wouldn't have been put on trial for murder and Trayvon Martin would still be alive. 

Bottom line is Zimmerman got away with murder and Martin's family received old school southern stillupfront "justice."

You aren't thinking very clearly.  According to Florida law, all Zimmerman had to do was establish a reasonable scenario by which he felt his life was in danger. 

It's perfectly imaginable that because Zimmerman was following Martin, Martin struck him, and that once a fight was begun, Zimmerman was scared for his life and shot.  There is in fact real evidence disputed by no one that a fight took place.  Who started it, only Zimmerman knows and there is no way to prove that.  Yay Florida law.

The burden on the jury is very clear: in order to return a conviction they must be convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman did not shoot in self defense.  Think about it...the prosecutor has to prove a negative to get a conviction.  Impossible without video of Zimmerman striking first, etc.

It's true that none of this would have happened if Zimmerman weren't a terrible human being who make awful decisions.  It's also true that Florida law allows people like Zimmerman do goad people into situations from which they can claim the right to kill.  But none of that has any bearing on the actual case.

Exactly.  If you want to run around Florida with a gun trolling people into fighting you and then shooting them claiming self defense, you can.  If you can prove they struck first, you walk automatically.  If it can't be proved who struck first, you walk.

Post by: Rome on July 14, 2013, 11:15:36 AM
Exactly right, Munson.   Did Zimmerman break the law?  I guess not.  He still killed a kid who he provoked and when he got the shtein kicked out of himself he pulled a gun and blew the kid away.  Again, for the millionth farging time, if Zimmerman had not provoked the incident Martin would be alive today.  It's not like Martin broke into his house and got capped.  He was walking home from the 7-11 armed to the teeth with a bag of Skittles and an iced tea.  The Horror!

And for the record, I actually support Stand Your Ground laws if your life is threatened.  If someone breaks into my house I'll drill them until there's nothing left to do but sweep up the mess.  But this is different.  Zimmerman went out as a vigilante and got away with his reckless actions.  For now that is.

What the verdict says, to the astonishment of tens of millions of us, is that you can go looking for trouble in Florida, with a gun and a great deal of racial bias, and you can find that trouble, and you can act upon that trouble in a way that leaves a young man dead, and none of it guarantees that you will be convicted of a crime. But this curious result says as much about Florida's judicial and legislative sensibilities as it does about Zimmerman's conduct that night. This verdict would not have occurred in every state. It might not even have occurred in any other state. But it occurred here, a tragic confluence that leaves a young man's untimely death unrequited under state law. Don't like it? Lobby to change Florida's laws.

I essentially agree with this.  The shooting was definitely an avoidable tragedy, and Zimmerman will have to live with his actions for the rest of his life.  Unfortunately, Martin won't have that chance.  But from everything I've read (didn't watch any of the "coverage" of the trial), it seems that the prosecution failed to prove within reasonable doubt that Zimmerman was guilty of what he was accused of doing.  They had contradictory witnesses, experts that basically said Zimmerman was telling the truth, and no substantive evidence to prove that Zimmerman was not acting in defense.

Either the case was too weak to win, or the prosecution botched it up.  Either way, it seems to be that the jury was correct.

Dio is right in one aspect... the prosecution failed to make its case.   Not shocking because the burden of proof lies with them, but still, they were pimp-slapped by the defense.  The jury really had no choice but to find him not guilty even though he was 100% at fault.  All he had to do was get his fat ass back in the truck and let the pigs handle it.  He didn't and another black child is dead.

i agree with this if you are talking murder....its hard to prove what his intention was...even tho he said that night "they arent going to get away with this again" and stalked trayvon.....but as far as manslaughter goes there was way more than enough for that conviction

Reality check folks.

The jury decided properly.  There was no case against Zimmerman.  The prosecution offered some circumstantial evidence and that's about it.  The standard to convict is exceptionally high, as it should be, and I commend the jury for hewing to the law.

Obviously, Zimmerman is a terrible person, but that's neither here nor there.  According to the law and the available evidence, the man is not guilty.  Deal with it.

I agree with this.  The problem is that the prosecution went for manslaughter instead of involuntary manslaughter.  Manslaughter can be simply defined as "The unjustifiable, inexcusable, and intentional killing of a human being without deliberation, premeditation, and malice."

Intentional is the key here because in order to get a manslaughter conviction you have to be able to prove intent.  As much of a scum bag as I think Zimmerman is, there simply wasn't anywhere near enough evidence to convince me that he had any intentions of actually killing Martin. 

Involuntary Manslaughter would have been the more winnable case and probably the most justified charge to take into court.  Problem is that in Florida, IM comes with an 18 month max penalty, and if convicted, Zimmerman would be free within a few months once you factor in time served, not to mention that I don't even know if he'd receive the maximum punishment.  So you'd have this big public spectacle of a trial and finish up with maybe a 3-6 months sentence?  The prosecution would actually have come off looking dumber than they already do, the "punishment" would be a slap in the face and would probably incite more riots and civil unrest than came with the not guilty verdict.

George Zimmerman to Get His Gun Back (http://abcnews.go.com/US/george-zimmerman-gun-back/story?id=19663922#.UeMiB432YRN)

Quote
George Zimmerman will get his gun back now that he has been cleared of murder and his lawyer said today that Zimmerman needs the weapon "even more" than before.

Zimmerman's lawyer Mark O'Mara also practically dared the family of Trayvon Martin to file a widely expected civil suit against him, but said that Zimmerman might be filing lawsuits of his own.

O'Mara, in an exclusive interview with ABC News, suggested that Zimmerman has no regrets about carrying a gun on Feb. 26, 2012, the night he killed Martin, a teenager.

No legal reason not to.  He's been cleared of the crime.

Zimmerman's legal team may want to tone down the rhetoric, though.  It's a lot easier to win a civil suit than it is a criminal one.

Jimmy Carter's take on the Zimmerman decision (http://news.yahoo.com/jimmy-carter-george-zimmerman-verdict-decision-215053026--abc-news-politics.html)

Quote
I think the jury made the right decision based on the evidence presented, because the prosecution inadvertently set the standard so high that the jury had to be convinced that it was a deliberate act by Zimmerman, that he was not at all defending himself...

It's not a moral question, it was a legal question, and the American law requires that the jury listen to the evidence presented," Carter said. "The action that was taken in the courtroom was not to bring in the race issue at all. The prosecution avoided that subject quite clearly.

Obama rodeo clown incident illustrates nation’s continued racial divide
By Philip Rucker, Washington Post
August 15

SEDALIA, Mo. — As some people at the Missouri State Fair see it, the rodeo incident last weekend in which a ringleader taunted a clown wearing a mask of President Obama and played with his lips as a bull charged after him was neither racist nor disrespectful.

It was a joke, they said, overblown by a news media that’s hypersensitive to any possible slight against the nation’s first black president. They said the hooting and hollering from the crowd that night was because of a fundamental dislike of the president.

“I’ve got no respect for him,” said Virgil Henke, 65, a livestock farmer who explained his distaste for Obama with several falsehoods about his background: “Why, he’s destroyed this country. How much freedom have we lost? I don’t care whether it’s a black man in office, but we have to have a true-blooded American. I think he is Muslim and trying to destroy the country, catering to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.”

The rodeo incident and the clown at the center of it have become the latest illustration of racial divisions that continue to surface nearly five years into Obama’s presidency.

A three-minute amateur video of the rodeo act was picked up by news outlets worldwide. Democratic and Republican elected officials in Missouri quickly condemned the incident, saying it was offensive and inappropriate at a taxpayer-funded event with children in attendance. Asked about it Wednesday, a White House spokesman said that it was not one of Missouri’s “finer moments.”

But there has also been a backlash on the right, with conservative radio talk show hosts and writers dismissing the act as a joke no different from jabs aimed at other presidents. Moreover, they said, the president’s supporters ought to learn how to take a joke rather than seeing everything as racially motivated. Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Tex.), who tweeted that liberals are “thin-skinned and totalitarian,” has invited the clown to perform at rodeos in Texas.

There is a long history of mocking politicians at rodeos, and clowns have donned masks of other presidents as part of their acts. But James Staab, a political science professor at the University of Central Missouri, said last week’s incident “goes beyond the pale — they’re talking about physical injury and racial stereotypes.”

Whether the scene at the state fair was meant merely as mockery or something more sinister, there was no room for nuance among a dozen fairgoers interviewed Wednesday. There was near universal agreement that the incident was all in good fun, and disapproval of the president crossed into a deep, personal hatred, often tinted in racial terms.

“I was raised to think the blacks were bad; I’m not gonna lie. We lived on one side of the tracks, and they lived on the other,” said Margaret Abercrombie, 68, who is white and grew up along the Mississippi River in Sikeston, Mo.

Abercrombie said she voted twice for Obama but didn’t find anything wrong with the rodeo act. As she rode her motorized wheelchair to the grandstands at the rodeo arena, which on this day hosted tractor pull races, Abercrombie said the anti-Obama sentiments she encounters are based on race.

“You hear the farmers here, they just don’t like him because he’s black,” Abercrombie said. Pointing across the fairgrounds to the cattle barns, she added, “I’m surprised they ain’t got a cow over there named Obama.”

The Wednesday crowd at the fair, which lasts 11 days in remote Sedalia, was overwhelmingly white. Some vendors played right-wing talk radio from boom boxes at their tents. One vendor sold “rebel pride” hats emblazoned with Confederate flags for $8 each. Another, who would only be identified as “Dennis the Sticker Dude” because he was afraid of government retaliation, hawked car decal stickers featuring a cartoon boy urinating on Obama.

Henke hesitated at first to provide his name, fearing that if he publicly criticized Obama the Internal Revenue Service would “be up my [backside] and at my door.”

Henke said he sometimes surfs the Internet for Web sites making fun of Obama and his family. For instance, he said, one site he looks at compares “Obama’s wife to a monkey — they have the same expression. The media makes it all hate. I don’t hate a black person. It’s just funny.”

At the rodeo here last Saturday night, a clown wearing an Obama mask stood on the arena’s dirt floor, propped up like a straw man with the appearance that a broom stick was going up his backside. A second clown called him “ya big goober.” Before letting the bull loose to charge at the clown with the Obama mask, the second clown provided live narration over the loudspeakers:

“Obama, they’re coming for you this time.”

“He’s going to getcha, getcha, getcha.”

“Yahoo! We’re gonna smoke Obama.”

In the stands, Perry Beam was so sickened by the scene he began recording it.

“It reminded me of a [Ku Klux] Klan rally,” Beam said. “It had that hateful aspect. It was the way they cheered, the anger in it. . . . You can disagree with a government policy, but that doesn’t prompt you to put a stick up his [backside] and incite the crowd to say how many of you want to see him be trampled by a bull. To wish that on somebody is hateful.”

Beam’s video led Missouri’s elected officials to strongly condemn the act. Mark Ficken, the rodeo announcer, resigned as president of the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association — although Ficken’s lawyer, Albert Watkins, said it was actually the ringleader clown, Tuffy Gessling, who made the inflammatory remarks.

“Sort of like Madonna, he wears a little headset with a live microphone,” Watkins said of Gessling. “What was funny and cute morphed into an off-color and inappropriate series of comments that basically everybody who has a room temperature IQ and above will agree were inappropriate and racist.”

Missouri State Fair officials permanently banned Gessling from future performances. On Wednesday, an apology was issued on a Twitter account that appeared to be from Gessling, saying, “Thank you to the folks that are in support of what I did, and to those I have offended I am sorry I never ment [sic] any harm.”

Gessling could not be reached for comment, but one of his cousins, Dennis Gessling, defended him in an interview. “They’re just blowing it way out of proportion — the mainstream media, the leftists, you name it,” he said. “He doesn’t mean any disrespect. . . . He is a comedian for the rodeo, and he was there to entertain the crowd. It is no different than a Jay Leno, a Jimmy Fallon, a Conan O’Brien.”

On Facebook, fans began a support group for Gessling. It had more than 60,000 “likes” by late Thursday. One organizer posted that Gessling is grateful for the support and is trying to arrange some public appearances.

The incident has been a flash point for Obama’s supporters as well. Ficken, who is superintendent of the nearby Boonville School District, has received several threats, some extremely violent and personal, his lawyer said.

To Beam, the racist element of the rodeo act was obvious. “If you’re a white man in a black mask in a former slaveholding state with a broom lodged in your rectum and you’re playing with your lips, you will be confused with a racist,” Beam said. “Had I been black, I would’ve been scared for my life.”

Kenneth Robinson, 58, a hospital clerical worker, was among the many fairgoers who leapt to Gessling’s defense.

“It was just a guy making fun of the president, like everybody else does,” Robinson said. “Whether he’s black, white, green or purple, he’s the president, and he’s got to know when he goes in that position people are gonna make fun of him.”

Bernadette Brock, 67, who was square-dancing at the fair, said the rodeo incident was nothing compared with anti-Obama displays at lower-profile events.

“Honey,” Brock said, “if you had been in some of our counties down here, this was mild.”

There is this stupid overblown story from my hometown last week were the borough rented out the pool to a party supposedly hosted by Dione Waiters and it was supposed to be 100 people and no alcohol.  800 people later it was an obvious shteinshow and the cops had to be called in.  Of course small town idiots think it's the end of their quaint town and this is the worst thing to happen since the Detroit riots...  Here is a link to the story, yeah it's an issue but whatever. http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/Borough-Residents-Outraged-by-Party-at-Town-Pool-220297771.html

All this leads me to read the above article and then the comments below and I read this...

I notice there was a fence around the pool. So what's the problem? Sell tickets and call it a zoo. If "they" want to act like animals- let's treat "them" like animals (except my dog is better behaved than them people.) But then, what do you expect from "those kind of people."

800 is such a random number...i have no clue how they came up with it or did a headcount

it was probably a lot, more than "capacity," but these types of things are always overblown by the media. next week itll be reported as 1000 then in 10 years itll be 5000.

i cant believe they want the council chairman to resign over it...when one of their kids has a party with alcohol do they have to resign as parents??....these are they exact same people who go crazy when they watch the news and black people are wildin out....they are all out of control animals....this is why they cant have things like big get togethers....so this time they have a big pool party by all accounts not a single thing happened....yet they are having town hall meetings over it?

basically the town folk would have rather had this party been an ok corral type shootout at the west philly Y than they would a peaceful pool party in perkasie

the people are absolutely overreacting.  they talk about participants urinating in their yards, and trash left on the streets and on the their properties.  the dumb part is, that while perkasie is a nice town in areas, the areas by the pool are a lot of lower income apartment housing that isn't the greatest area in the world.

i'd be willing to bet that at least half of the people complaining weren't close to the area, and are bored housewives who see a local cause to take up.

Wounded Victim of Racist Serial Killer Recounts Nightmare as Execution Nears
Don Terry on October 21, 2013
 
Before Joseph Paul Franklin, the prolific racist serial killer, is executed, Terry Jackson-Mitchell wants to look the condemned man in the eye and tell him she forgives him for the nightmares and flashbacks that crashed into her life on a summer night in Utah 33 years ago.
 
That’s when Franklin wounded Jackson-Mitchell, then 15, and shot and killed her two black friends, jogging a few feet from her in a Salt Lake City park.
 
“I believe in the old saying, forgiveness is a gift you give yourself,” Jackson-Mitchell, now 49, told Hatewatch in a telephone interview Sunday evening.  “I forgive him based on what I’ve read about his horrific childhood. And I forgive him because I refuse to allow that night to define me.”
 
But her forgiveness only goes so far.
 
“I honestly wrestle with it, but I think he should be executed,” Jackson-Mitchell said. “I think he’s like a rabid dog. He’s suffered his whole life from cradle to grave. It just seems more humane to put him to death rather than let him live and suffer any longer.”
 
Franklin’s execution by lethal injection is set for Nov. 20 in Missouri. An 11th-hour  legal challenge could, however, delay his trip to the death chamber.
 
While Jackson-Mitchell wants the sentence to be carried out as soon possible, Hustler publisher Larry Flynt – whom Franklin has confessed to shooting, as well as then-civil rights leader Vernon Jordan – does not want Franklin executed. Even so, as he wrote last week in the Hollywood Reporter, he would “love an hour in a room with him and a pair of wire-cutters and pliers, so I could inflict the same damage on him that he inflicted on me.”

Franklin has confessed to shooting Flynt in 1978 in Georgia because Flynt had featured a white woman and a black man in his magazine. Flynt was left paralyzed and in a wheelchair.
 
“I have had many years in this wheelchair to think about this very topic,” Flynt wrote. “As I see it, the sole motivating factor behind the death penalty is vengeance, not justice, and I firmly believe that a government that forbids killing among its citizens should not be in the business of killing people itself.”
 
A KILLER RECANTS
 
Last week, in a series of telephone interviews with Hatewatch from the condemned unit at the Potosi Correctional Center in Missouri, Franklin, now a 63-year-old grandfather, apologized to his victims and purported to renounce his racist past and extremist beliefs.
 
But Jackson-Mitchell said when she read the Hatewatch interview with the former Klansman and neo-Nazi she was stunned and skeptical.
 
“It’s hard to believe that he’s completely denouncing his racism and wants to ask for forgiveness from his victims,” she said.
 
Her skepticism is steeped in blood.
 
On the night of Aug. 20, 1980, Jackson-Mitchell, who is white, was a high school cheerleader and honor roll student out for a jog with another white teenage girl, who does not want her name known. They were joined by two black friends, David Martin, 18, a recent high school graduate, and his buddy, Ted Fields, 20, a college student and minister’s son.
 
Franklin was 30 and nearing the end of a lone-wolf campaign of murder and mayhem that began in the summer of 1977 with the killing of an interracial couple of Madison, Wis. His goal was to spark a race war as he drifted across the country, robbing banks and gunning down blacks, Jews and interracial couples – in broad daylight at point-blank range in Wisconsin and from the tall weeds and distant shadows in Utah.
 
Franklin was obsessed with “miscegenation.”
 
“I still don’t like it,” he told Hatewatch. “But now I know it’s none of my business.”
 
IT WAS SURREAL
 
It was close to 9 p.m. when Jackson-Mitchell and her friends began to jog around Liberty Park. It was Jackson-Mitchell’s first time jogging, and she and her girlfriend lagged behind the young men, who did everything together, from playing sports to going to church.
 
A car pulled up alongside the girls. The driver asked them if they wanted a ride.
 
“He said he just wanted to talk,” Jackson-Mitchell said. “I just knew this man was scary.”
 
The man was Joseph Paul Franklin.
 
The girls said no and ran to catch up with the young men. Franklin drove off into the night.
 
After finishing their jog, the four friends headed out of the park. They were crossing a street when Jackson-Mitchell felt something hot strike her arm. She thought someone had thrown a burning a firecracker that hit her.
 
“My arm was immediately on fire,” she said. “Dave looked at me and said, ‘They got me.’ I thought he was joking. It was surreal.”
 
Franklin was shooting from the four-foot-high weeds in a nearby vacant lot. His first shot hit David Martin and apparently passed through his body. Jackson-Mitchell said she was wounded by fragments when the bullet hit the street.
 
“Dave turned and fell,” Jackson-Mitchell said. “We all caught him. The shots just kept coming.”
 
Franklin fired a half dozen times, hitting Ted Fields, “who told me to run,” Jackson-Mitchell said.
 
In a panic, she looked around for cover, some place to hide. She dashed toward the tall grass across the street.
 
She was running directly toward Franklin.
 
“I was five or 10 feet away from him,” Jackson-Mitchell said. “I can’t believe he didn’t kill me, too.”
 
The girls survived. The young men did not. Franklin vanished.
 
“Their families blamed us,” Jackson-Mitchell said. “I wasn’t allowed to go to the funeral. I was alive and they were dead.”
 
There were whispers around town that the white girls had set up Ted and Dave. Jackson-Mitchell’s father was the president of a motorcycle club. Fingers were pointed at him, too. Jackson-Mitchell said white people asked her point blank, why was a pretty white girl like her hanging out with black boys? They warned her she was ruining her chances of finding a good white husband.
 
“Given the times,” writes Salt Lake City journalist Peg McEntee, “the racial divide was as deep here in Salt Lake City as anywhere in the nation.”
 
There were threats and strangers slowly driving past Jackson-Mitchell’s family home. The sniper was still on the loose.
 
“We couldn’t stand by the window,” she said. “It was pure hell.”
 
For her safety, Jackson-Mitchell’s parents moved her out of state to live with her grandparents.
 
“I lost a lot of friends,” she said.
 
The nightmares followed her.
 
SUFFERING IN SILENCE
 
Franklin has been convicted of killing eight people in his terrorist assassination campaign from 1977 to 1980, including Jackson-Mitchell’s friends. “Both of them, they were a joy,” Jackson-Mitchell said. “Dave was hysterically funny. You know that person in high school you can’t wait to see because you’re going to be laughing all day. He was just a light.”
 
Jackson-Mitchell testified at Franklin’s trials in federal and then in state court, where he received two life sentences. As she testified, she said she never took her eyes off of Franklin. He locked eyes with her only once.
 
All told, authorities believe Franklin may have murdered as many as 20 people across the country. But he has received only one death sentence. That was for the sniper killing of a 42-year-old Jewish man, Gerald Gordon, who was coming out of a synagogue in suburban St. Louis when he was shot and killed in 1977.
 
Jackson-Mitchell suffered in silence for years. She kept her past a secret. “I never told anybody,” she said, “that I was the girl shot for race mixing.”
 
She sought counseling and was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. She fought hard to be a survivor, not a victim. Jackson-Mitchell has also been speaking out more and more about the evils of racism. She and the families of her murdered friends made up.
 
Every year she returned to the park on the anniversary of the shooting to say a prayer for her friends. A successful real estate agent, two years ago, Jackson-Mitchell went back to school and discovered the healing power of making art. She made a mask out of old newspaper clippings from that terrible night. The mask represented what she had been hiding from so long.
 
“I went back to where we were shot on the anniversary again this year and I didn’t feel sad,” she said. “I felt healed. I didn’t have the flashbacks I normally have. I think the art helps me find the voice of that 15-year-old girl I tried to bury alive. I think the art helped her be heard.”
 
The newspaper clippings she has left over from her mask project she plans to burn in the mountains, the night before Joseph Paul Franklin is put to death.

Congressman calls Obama a "tar baby"
Posted by: CNN White House Producer Becky Brittain

WASHINGTON (CNN) - In the heat of the political debate over the debt ceiling last week, Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO) may have crossed the line when he said that being associated with President Obama would be similar to touching a “tar baby”.

“Even if some people say, well the Republicans should have done this or they should have done that, they will hold the President responsible,” said Lamborn said Friday during an interview on a Denver radio station. “Now I don’t want to even have to be associated with him. It’s like touching a tar baby and you get, you get it, you know… you are stuck and you are part of the problem now and you can’t get away.”

Now critics are questioning his use of that term and are calling it highly offensive to the president.

The term “tar baby” is a reference to 19th-century Uncle Remus stories about Br’er Rabbit but has taken on a negative connotation towards African-Americans.

Lamborn spokeswoman Catherine Mortensen said the comments were a misunderstanding and he apologizes.

“Congressman Lamborn regrets any misunderstanding. He simply meant to refer to a sticky situation or quagmire,” she said.

Pretty much.  There are dozens of words and phrases that could have been used to deliver the same message that don't have racist ties to them.....such as, oh I dunno....sticky situation or quagmire. 

It's laughable that off all the options out there these farg tards keep "accidentally" using words and phrases with racial/racist ties.  This isn't the 1st time someone from the GOP has made this "mistake."

overheard on the job:

a sub talking to another sub about how he fixed something:

"I coulda been a stillupfront about it and just pinned it over there, but instead I did it right, took it apart, etc."

when i'm running jobs, some things are going to change.

as an aside:  one of those changes will be that no, no it is not alright to leave your farging cigarette butts in the driveways and gardens of my clients.  I don't care if you are roughneck roofers and drywall monkeys.  that shtein is not farging acceptable.

The Phillies always seem to have a lot of black players and I think Jimmy has had a lot of influence on that with him pushing the inner city initiative. I like that about the organization and I hope they continue to push that when he's gone.
Title: Re: The Race(ism)/Hate Thread
Post by: hbionic on April 15, 2014, 12:21:01 AM
That is pretty cool of Jimmy.

Dodgers have been diverse since I've known them. I grew up in the Fernando Valenzuela/Pedro Guerrero era.

Korean, Mexican, Dominican, Cuban, Japanese (Typical non-U.S. baseball countries).

The black guys on the squad that I know remember are:

Matt Kemp (hottie)
Dee Gordon
Carl Crawford
Chone Figgins

I think that's it as far as black (American black) players go.

I think playing serious sports as a kid/adolecent/teen is so farging expensive. I talk to parents all the time...and honestly...inner city families don't have that kind of cash. It's good that baseball has the initiative, which I know nothing about, but if that initiative includes paying for or covering expenses, then I think they can get more kids to play. *Note, I say inner city because I'm stereotyping. There are black kids in other middle and upper class neighborhoods. Just seems like the % is higher for inner-city than suburbia.
Title: Re: The Race(ism)/Hate Thread
Post by: PhillyPhreak54 on April 15, 2014, 12:36:15 AM
It's a real problem for baseball (and hockey) where equipment is needed and expensive. Football needs expensive equipment but the schools provide that. You don't need to have a full ensemble to go throw the ball around or play touch in the park (but the again, when's the last time you saw a game of touch or kids playing outside?).

Baseball has become so specialized now where parents pay shtein tons of money to send little Garrett or Kody to academies. I have one by my house and it's a non stop parade of 50k trucks and SUVs in and out of there. Gone are the days of the farging Tom Emanski drills videos.

The Dodgers have always been diverse and I like that. The tone was set with Jackie and that organization always was ahead of their times. They pretty much began the run on scouting Latin America.

Baseball does an overall poor job of marketing the sport. With 81 home games a year and stadiums barely filled they should be giving tix away to kids, schools, boys and girls clubs and any other organization that can help young bucks latch onto the game. All it takes is one afternoon for a kid to get hooked at the ballpark.

Baseball has problems on several fronts that even impact pasty white kids in the burbs. It's a slow game and the world moves fast. Basketball barely stops during the first 46 minutes. Football has time limits between plays. Even hockey, as awful as it is, keeps moving.

Baseball is an expensive sport.  You need a lot big enough for the field. You need grass. You need bases. You need fences. You need a mound and landscaping.  You need 18 kids. You need bats, balls and gloves.

Basketball needs 2 hoops, some leftover asphalt, and a couple gallons of paint and you've got a court that will last 10 years.  Now you just need a few kids and a $10 ball.

Which one is a poor neighborhood more likely to foot the bill for?

Baseball diamonds don't litter the urban landscape.  Also, as noted above, it's expensive to compete at the highest levels of youth baseball.  You gotta do a lot of long distance travelling, the special camps are expensive (even if they do have a few need-based scholarship slots), etc.

we are only into the first or second generation of people who dont look at baseball as king because they have other options now

Racists Express Support for Frazier Glenn Miller, Suspect in Deadly Kansas Shooting, on White Supremacist Forum
By Don Terry on April 15, 2014

Get ready to take a long hot shower after reading the comments of support on Vanguard News Network (VNN) for neo-Nazi Frazier Glenn Miller, who was arrested at the scene minutes after the Sunday afternoon shooting spree at two Jewish community centers in suburban Kansas City that left three people dead, including a grandfather and his 14-year-old grandson.
 
“3 ain’t bad,” wrote “John from Canada.” “Heil Hitler brother!!”
 
“Happy April 20th,” “James Hawthorne,” a senior member of the VNN Forum added, referring to Adolf Hitler’s birthday, still the most important date on the neo-Nazi calendar.
 
“Dan Hadaway,” also a senior member, lamented that Miller “needed to go on a more crowded day” and that the attack didn’t “sound like it was too well thought out.”
 
“Thank God people are finally fighting back against these vicious demonic parasites,” “H.B.,” another senior member said. “The jews (sic) are so evil. It is shocking that most people still don’t have a clue despite the fact that the Internet has given total transparency to their incredible and innumerable crimes.”
 
“313Chris” wrote, “Despite the thousands of years of destruction the Jew has repeatedly visited on the Aryan race, when someone finally gives a few of them a little lead karma, it’s not just murder, but a hate crime.”
 
“Crowe” wrote, “If he killed a single white person then he is a farging scumbag. If they were kikes, then he gets a round of applause.”
 
As it turns out, none of the dead – William Corporon, 69, a physician, his grandson, Reat Underwood, 14, and Terri LaManno, 53 – were Jewish.
 
Dr. Coroporon and his grandson were killed in the parking lot of the Jewish Community of Greater Kansas City. They were at the center located in Overland Park, Kansas, so Reat could audition for a singing contest.
 
LaManno was gunned down at a nearby Jewish retirement home, visiting her mother. LaManno was Catholic.
 
“One thing is for sure: the Jews are celebrating right now,” “John Evans: Christian Anti-Semite,” wrote. “Three white Christians dead, a Jew-hater in custody and headed for the gas chamber, and most people totally alienated against WNs” – white nationalists.
 
“Miller’s motives,” he added, “were pure, but his execution was disastrous.”
 
The 73-year-old Miller, also know as Frazier Glenn Cross, posted more than 12,000 times to VNN over the years. His screen name was “Rounder.”
 
“It’s so terrible that he was apprehended,” senior member “N.B. Forrest,” wrote.

At the time of the shooting, the Jewish Community Center was packed with hundreds of teenagers, like Reat Underwood, trying out for the singing contest. Others were auditioning for a production of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” a play that apparently enrages white supremacists, judging by the comments on VNN.
 
“Drunk, sober, smart or dumb,” “Jimmy Marr,” wrote, “Miller selected targets rich in symbolic meaning: A jew institution and an anti-White propaganda production (To Kill a Mockingbird).”
 
“I’m just taking a wild guess,” “Tom Sanders” commented, “those kids were gonna grow up to be stillupfront lovin’ pansies, jew enablers. Future traitors. Glenn did them a favor. He was like a real father to them, teaching them right from wrong.”
 
“Serbian,” a senior member, wrote the “ultimate responsibility for this unfortunate little episode lies solely with the System which has created the conditions that could potentially force a certain type to do something like this.
 
“I am sad for Glenn/Rounder and his family. Sure some of his posts here may have been a little offensive and aggressive at times but at least the man seemed to have heart and spirit.”
 
Talk about sympathy for the Devil.

“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, “and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids — and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch — they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do.

“And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?” he asked. “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”

Northern Maine hates Miceholes more than any of us could fathom.  They also hate canadians for buying all of their chicken and milk on weekends. 

Northern Maine is odd, they love for you to spend money so long as you leave.  Locals all seemingly liked my inlaws for the previous 20 years they owned land or a cabin.  The second that their dream cabin was under construction, they had nothing but issues from local govts, disproportionate tax increases, and insurance/building code requirements that amounted to nothing more than a money grab.  There is still two feet of snow in the driveway of their place.

Planning a cross country roadtrip at some point in the next 3 years, and northern Maine and/or just the wilderness of Maine is something I want to do if we end up including New England in that trip, or will otherwise do if we decide to do New England on it's own at a different time. Camp in a state park somewhere in the woods of northern Maine and hope to see some Moose.

I wanted to get to the furthest point north in Maine just to say I was at the furthest point north on the East Coast, but that would be a little time consuming. Definitely planning on hitting Quoddy Head Light House. Heard great things about Acadia too.

Look at that goofball motherfarger Karl Rove trying to incite the masses against Hilary by "asking" about her health. I mean he said something about her wearing glasses designed for traumatic brain injury sufferers after her fall.

the overall problem is that what ultimately happens in every conspiracy is that it comes back to the federal government being anywhere from untrustworthy to being a criminal organization...and once that belief permeates the population to a certain degree it renders the govt and the country useless...the electorate has shown to not be smart enough so its the pols themselves have to be more responsible and not feed this anger....but whats happened in the last decade with the tea party and other crazies like that on the right is that they are producing people who are actually running for office and winning

While many are calling the incident a hate crime, Action News has learned that even after the suspects are caught, the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office says the incident cannot be prosecuted as a hate crime.

That's because sexual orientation is not on the list of hate crimes in Pennsylvania.

The state did pass a hate crime law in 2002 that covered the LGBT community but the Pennsylvania Supreme Court struck it down on a technicality.

Legislation was re-introduced in 2009 but failed to make it out of committee.

Not surprised by this. At the federal level, homosexuals are not considered a "protected class."  When the military allowed soldiers to openly identify as gay, they were still not given all the same benefits as straight soldiers. They are also not protected under EEO policies. So while it's unacceptable for a soldier to use a racial slur towards minorities or to use a sexual slur towards women, there are literally no repercussions for openly discriminating against a gay soldier.

So in order for a hate crime to exist,  homosexuals have to be in the same protected class as minorities or handicapped, and I don't think very many states have done that.

It's unfortunate because it's a righteous issue that deserves attention but I don't think these set of facts really are the ideal ones to make the necessary case.

Isn't just the fact that he was shot 6 times so far away from the car (over a hundred feet, according to more recent stories) be enough to have a trial and at least try him on something?

Seems like those two facts alone would at least make an indictment easy, even if there wouldn't be enough evidence to convict on murder.

I'm hardly a legal expert so don't do that, just giving my opinion from my understanding of the autopsy. 

My take is the searing of the finger gives credibility to the officers story that Brown was reaching for the gun.  I would have to look at a complete police report and both autopsys but when you have an autopsy that comes back like that, especially given the deference often paid to police in those situations, I'm doubting the grand jury indicts.
Title: Re: The Race(ism)/Hate Thread
Post by: PhillyPhreak54 on November 24, 2014, 07:24:20 PM
Yeah the searing is troublesome. But to sear it has to be hot and if his gun hadn't shot a round(s) then it wouldn't be hot. So he prematurely draws his weapon and fired and then Brown reaches for it?
Title: Re: The Race(ism)/Hate Thread
Post by: Munson on November 24, 2014, 07:30:46 PM
Or the gun goes off in the struggle, which is what I think probably happened. And had he been shot and killed right there, I'd actually be on Wilson's side in this.

But the fact that Brown then ran away and was shot 6 times, many many feet away from the car, is too much for me.

National Bar Association Calls for Federal Charges Against Darren Wilson (http://www.complex.com/pop-culture/2014/11/national-bar-association-calls-for-federal-charges-against-darren-wilson)

Quote
WASHINGTON, DC – The National Bar Association is questioning how the Grand Jury, considering the evidence before them, could reach the conclusion that Darren Wilson should not be indicted and tried for the shooting death of Michael Brown. National Bar Association President Pamela J. Meanes expresses her sincere disappointment with the outcome of the Grand Jury’s decision but has made it abundantly clear that the National Bar Association stands firm and will be calling on the U.S. Department of Justice to pursue federal charges against officer Darren Wilson. “We will not rest until Michael Brown and his family has justice” states Pamela Meanes, President of the National Bar Association.

Title: Re: The Race(ism)/Hate Thread
Post by: Sgt PSN on November 26, 2014, 12:25:43 AM
I heard recently (within the last week or so) that the head shot took place with Brown about 10 feet away from Wilson.  I'm not changing my mind based on that interview, but what he said was pretty damn similar to the stories I've been getting from Squaw's cop buddies. 

I still believe he should have stood trial.  I think that's the best way to get all of the information, witness accounts, testimonies, and evidence out there for all to see. 

That said, if it went down any way even remotely close to what I've heard/what he said in that interview, then I'd be inclined to say that he may in fact have been justified.

A spokesman for the police officers association, Jeff Roorda, made clear that the group would continue to speak up. In his statement, he said that “cops have first amendment rights, too, and we plan to exercise ours. I’d remind the N.F.L. and their players that it is not the violent thugs burning down buildings that buy their advertisers’ products. It’s cops and the good people of St. Louis and other N.F.L. towns that do. Somebody needs to throw a flag on this play. If it’s not the N.F.L. and the Rams, then it’ll be cops and their supporters.”

People like to toss around the freedom of speech thing and are wrong about it most of the time. However this time it is true - the cops are government and we have the freedom to speak up. Their job is to protect and administer the laws not threaten like some chumps.

The people who respond in comments to just obey the police and this wouldn't have happened farging infuriate me. 

Committing a crime does not allow the police to issue a death sentence.  It's not, obey the police or be shot.  They can only use deadly force if you possess a legitimate risk of serious harm to them, or if you just committed/are committing/or are about to commit a violent felony and are attempting to evade arrest. 

Selling cigarettes does not quite qualify as a violent felony.

Pretty much.

And I'm pretty damn sure that selling smokes on the corner doesn't meet the criteria for use of deadly force. And for arguments same let's said he was resisting, which he wasn't, that also doesn't mean an officer can use deadly force.

Their biggest problem is they get pissy when someone doesn't want to obey their every command. The general public needs to educate itself better on their rights, and Cops need to be re-educated on the limits of the law.

Many times the cops escalate the situations becUse of their ego and power trips. Like you said they cannot stand when someone doesn't do what they say when they say.

Think back to those videos where the dashcams show some officer berating a grandma on the side of a highway because she didn't pull over quick enough. Or when video shows them pepper spraying a person or group because they believed they needed to and all that happened was the person didn't immediately comply.

They have a tough job. And they're making it harder on themselves with incidences like this. The scumbags and iceholes are ruining it.

New high school course: ‘How to deal with cops’ (http://nypost.com/2014/11/23/new-hs-class-teaches-kids-how-to-deal-with-cops/)

Quote
But some law enforcement experts say the NYCLU is going beyond civics lessons and doling out criminal-defense advice.

Eugene O’Donnell, a former police officer and professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, said the literature implies cops are “public enemy No. 1.”

“It’s unlikely that a high school student would come away with any other conclusion than the police are a fearful group to be avoided at all costs,” he said.

Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, said, “Education is the key, but are Civil Liberties going in with an agenda or to educate? I think we deserve equal time and should have the opportunity to follow up with the same platform to explain exactly what police do and what we think is the best way to deal with the police.”

Sure, it's not the same as shooting him, which is why a murder charge probably wouldn't have gone anywhere (you're missing the intent element), but it looks to me like you definitely could've gotten a conviction on reckless endangerment or involuntary manslaughter, especially when you consider the chokehold is supposedly not permitted by the NYPD.

Post by: Seabiscuit36 on December 04, 2014, 09:29:41 AM
I guess I missed a good portion of this one, because I thought the Indictment was if he murdered him.  Was the indictment just to proceed?  And are Grand Jury's commonplace when it comes to police involved death?  Seems like the DA in both the Ferguson and NY case were worried about putting their name on hotbutton decisions. 
Title: Re: The Race(ism)/Hate Thread
Post by: Eagles_Legendz on December 04, 2014, 09:47:28 AM
I don't have experience enough to know whether they're commonplace.  I do know that they're not a death knell to the case, so the prosecutor could still move forward in theory even absent a GJ indictment.

I believe from what I've seen the grand jury could've brought back a charge for murder, reckless endangerment, or involuntary manslaughter, and instead failed to indict.  I understand not indicting on murder because you'd have to find that he intended to kill the man (which he probably didn't) but there certainly seems enough to me to at the very least charge him with something like involuntary manslaughter.
Title: Re: The Race(ism)/Hate Thread
Post by: Eagles_Legendz on December 04, 2014, 09:52:26 AM
Actually looks like it was criminally negligent homicide instead of murder which was the other charge.  I think you could've gotten him on that too. 

Statute in NY is --
criminally negligent homicide.
  A person is guilty of criminally negligent homicide when, with
criminal negligence, he causes the death of another person.
  Criminally negligent homicide is a class E felony.


Certainly seems like this is criminal negligence.

The way I am understanding these Grand Jury referrals is that the prosecutors are using them as a crutch. They don't want to go out on a limb and against their police and pursue the charges so they refer to the Grand Jury and wash their hands of it in a "see we tried to indict but they said no"

The other reason it pisses me off is people are using such a large umbrella for government overstepping its bounds. 

Basically all of these sentences like - well if there weren't cigarette taxes AND stop and frisk this wouldn't be a problem!

Cigarette taxes and stop and frisk policies are not remotely the same regarding their impact of minority communities and this has given occasion for people to just group it all in the same tent which is disingenuous.

We DO need to deal with things like stop and frisk.  It trivializes real problems like that by linking taxation to the issue.

Yup.

If people on the left were using this event and pointing to the oft used excuse that has been spit out by some pundits "How could they know if he was armed or not? For all they know, he has a gun in his back pocket!" as a chance to say "Well, if we're at the point where we think it's okay for cops to just assume everyone is armed, locked and loaded, and that assumption is getting people killed perhaps it's time we step back and take a look at the extreme availability of guns in our country as the "root problem"".....FoxNews and right wing pundits would be having a conniption, accusing the left and Obama and whoever else of using the tragedy to further their own policy goals.

Ferguson protesters win injunction to stop cops using tear gas (http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/ferguson-protesters-win-injunction-stop-cops-using-tear-gas)

Quote
FERGUSON, Missouri – A federal judge ruled Thursday that police can no longer use tear gas on protesters without declaring an illegal assembly, giving them fair warning and time to vacate the area.

The temporary restraining order comes just weeks after the last rounds of heavy protest in Ferguson in response to a St. Louis County grand jury’s decision not to indict the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown Jr. A group of protesters had filed the lawsuit asking for a restriction on police use of tear gas and excessive force during demonstrations.

Minority congressional staffers plan walkout in wake of Brown, Garner decisions (http://www.cnn.com/2014/12/11/politics/walkout-planned-for-congress/index.html)

Washington (CNN) -- Congressional staffers plan to walk off their jobs Thursday afternoon to show their support for the families of Michael Brown and Eric Garner in the wake of the decision by two grand juries not to indict the police officers responsible for their deaths, according to three staffers who plan to participate in the event.
The planned walkout comes after days of protests across the country, including in Washington, D.C., where demonstrators have marched through downtown, blocking roads and bridges on an almost nightly basis since last Wednesday's decision by a grand jury in Staten Island not to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the chokehold death of Garner.

So I've been doing some research into the land my wife and I bought and come across articles like this in 1886.

Quote
- Margaret Hindman, a well known colored woman, of this town, died very
suddenly at the home of her son on Milburn street, on Saturday afternoon
last, of heart disease.  She was 66 years of age and leaves several sons, one
of them, Perry Biddle, being only thirteen years younger than herself.  She
was raised a slave in the family of the late Mrs. Sophia Ford, in Elk Neck. 
A rumor that she was poisoned was circulated among the colored people of the
town.  There is not believed to be any foundation for this, however, and it
is suppsed to have been formed in the imagination of some ignorant negroes
who believe that all persons who died suddenly have been poisoned.

NYPD has been up on a pedestal for like 13 years now because of 9/11 (along with every other PD in the country to a lesser extent).  What did you think would happen?  I mean, NYPD baseball hats have been somewhat of a fashion trend for well over a decade for fargs sake. They've had their egos stroked and been told over and over again that they're heroes and the bestest people ever.  Here's the thing though...a hero doesn't need to be told he's a hero....at least not excessively.  It breeds arrogance and a sense of entitlement. 

I see it with the officers in squaw's department.  Hell, I even see it a little bit with squaw since she got back into it.  Seemingly cool people until they start talking cop shtein.  Far more concerned with their safety than the safety of the community they're entrusted to protect.  They don't care about the fact that dressing like a farging SWAT team just to go out on their normal patrol makes people uncomfortable when passing them on the street.  They see it as protect themselves first, everyone else second.  Sad but true.  I dressed like these dudes every day for 17 years.  I should feel very comfortable around them, but whenever I stop by the station to say hi to squaw and drop off a cup of coffee or something, I get extremely uncomfortable seeing them dressed like that.  In the military we dress like that and have the gear because we were prepping for farging war, not to walk or drive around town for 10 hours.  And this is just some rag tag podunk department with 8 or 9 cops, so I don't even want to imagine what it's like on a large metro PD, let alone the "pig mecca" that is the NYPD.

between the mass militarization of the country that started after 9/11 and then the subsequent decade + years of war there is so much much excess military equipment sitting in stock yards and warehouses around the country we didn't/don't know what to do with....so we started giving it to police departments around the country....and like sarge said not just in high value targets but any rag tag dept in the country who would take it....now you have these tiny departments whose members probably weren't overly proficient and possibly undertrained even with a hand gun now have control of military equipment.....its farging scary

Something I probably should have included......the cops in squaw's dept are, by all accounts, good cops.  These aren't people who go around bullying the public.  They all seem pretty content to work within the confines of the law, even though many of those laws makes their job harder.  Problem is they all buy into that "thin blue line" bullshtein.  None of them will ever publicly speak out against the cops who are overzealous or the ones who clearly violate the law or the ones who violate civil rights.  They won't condemn Darren Wilson or the cop who choked Eric Garner or the pig who shot up that 12 yr old kid in Cleveland.  Don't you dare cross that thin blue line.  I suspect that there's quite a few who would like to, but very rarely does someone actually have the balls to do it. 

And on the rare occasion that a cop does cross the blue line?  Well......

Oh, definitely.  The type of equipment that's been made available to nearly every PD across the country is mind blowing.  We have small town PDs that are better equipped than some countries' military forces.  And the level of training they get is definitely substandard.  I'm learning a lot about how PDs operate now that squaw is back on duty.  Her small town PD naturally has a small town budget.  She's been with them for almost a year now and other than having to qualify with her service weapon when she was hired, she hasn't been back to the range since.  No one in her dept has as far as I know.  And there's 1 guy who hasn't been to the range for like 5 years.  That's amazing to me.  And by amazing I really mean shtein my pants frightening.  They say that they just don't have the training budget to get range time. 

That's not to say they don't practice with their weapons.  They do.  A local gun club lets cops come in and shoot for free, but the cops still have to provide their own ammo.  But the fact that there's no formal weapons training and annual reinforcement of weapons training is just mind blowing.  Not the cops' fault.  They're doing the best they can with what they've got.  But again, if small town PDs like this aren't able to properly train their cops with just the basic weapons, I can't fathom how bad the training is for the smaller PDs around the country who have been given access to military grade equipment.

Post by: Sgt PSN on January 03, 2015, 12:27:32 PM
Exactly.  This is one of the few things I've actually gotten squaw to completely agree with me on.  PDs don't need tanks or urban assault vehicles.  Not even large cities like NY or LA.  If shtein gets that real, then call in the Nat'l Guard.  They have tanks and they've actually been trained on how to use them.    Jon Oliver did a great segment on this a while back right after Ferguson.  It was probably posted in here before but I'll post it again in case anyone missed it.  FF to about the 7 min mark.  Truly great shtein.

Agreed with both of ya.

There's no need to have departments outfitted with full blown military equipment. It is intimidating to see officers in those outfits. Combine that with jumpy trigger fingers and the attitudes that many possess and you've got a bad recipe.

Yes there should be swat teams. Yes there should be equipment on hand to be used when needed. But a cop on crowd duty doesn't need to be standing next to an armored vehicle wearing fatigues with a handgun strapped to each thigh and an ar-15 slung across their chest.

This dude I've been friends with for like 30 years now is a small time actor....he's had small parts in a couple soap operas, was one of Denzel's henchmen in American Gangster, and was also a uniformed cop who arrested Bodie in The Wire (igyfap).  He's also done a bunch of commercials, but he primarily writes and acts in small black-themed plays and short films. He also played football for Temple back in the late 90s (toddfap).

Anyway, dude is easily one of the 5 nicest people I've ever met. There was a shooting in his neighborhood the other day so cops are door knocking to see if anyone knows anything. He answers the door and I guess since he's kind of a big dude, pigs immediately draw their guns on him and put him on the ground.

Unfarging real. Black dudes aren't even safe in their own homes I guess.

Not surprisingly, response to Deeb's question has been mixed. But after thousands of tweets about the controversy, the casino has issued a statement from Borgata senior vice-president Joe Lupo.

"Our general manager of the restaurant is an African American female who wanted to come up with the menu to celebrate and honor Dr. King," Lupo says. "We allow our managers to run their restaurants. She did research and came up with an authentic recipe. It's very clear that these were his favorite foods."

The Borgata also points out that some of its restaurants offer other holiday-specific menus, like Mexican food on Cinco de Mayo, Irish food for St. Patrick's Day and Mexican fare on Cinco de Mayo.

I'm almost convinced that the powers that be are purposely implementing divisive policies to drive a wedge further into global cooperation and peace.  This is the type of shtein the conservatives eat up.  I'd prefer they just repeal all holidays which are based on religious means, to level the playing field. 

Locally, there was a double murder in a really nice neighborhood that my wife and I nearly bought a home in.  Great community, really close nit for its size.

http://www.cecildaily.com/news/local_news/article_ca17f786-a3d0-5655-8e94-7ae53e5fbed6.html

A husband and wife were found strangled to death 3 days after the deed was done in their home on the DE/PA/MD line.  The couple were in their mid and late 70's, knew the main suspect as he was a former boyfriend of their drug addict granddaughter.  He bragged that he had been planning this robbery for over 10 years.  Stole a bunch of guns, sold them they think in Dundalk/Trenton.  The defendants all were previously involved in other robberies of elderly victims, and per usual, they got off because the lazy judges in this county would rather take a plea than have a trial. 

The comments on Facebook about the murder and the suspects were over the top  I swear every 3 posts i saw mentioned hanging the suspects from the trees.  One guy even suggested that they hang all the Muslims while they're at it.  I just don't get the psyche where its acceptable to think lynching is an option in 2015, and that it's perfectly acceptable to put that in writing.  The moron suggesting a holy war should be fought while we're hanging people without a judge or jury gives you an idea of the bohemian minds in the area.  Needless to say, the grammar was a treat. 

Might be time to rid myself of social media, because reading the crap that is out there is just infuriating.

Obviously, Kobach isn’t responsible for comments raised by those who call into his show. But Kansas’ Secretary of State, a notorious national figure for his anti-immigration and voter-suppression efforts, is responsible for how he responded to this caller’s concerns.
 
And in this case, Kobach responded ridiculously, falsely arguing that Attorney General Eric Holder “basically made it clear….that the civil rights laws were only to protect minority races, and he was not going to be enforcing them to the benefit of white people who were discriminated against on the basis of their race. So, that’s basically what you’ve described.”
 
When the caller predicted that “there just won’t be any prosecutions of black criminals,” Kobach told his audience, “Well, it’s already happened more or less in the case of civil rights laws. So I guess it’s not a huge jump, I think it’s unlikely, but you know I’ve learned to say with this president, never say never.”

You'd think a guy with beliefs like these would be drummed out of office once they were made public but Kansas overwhelmingly re-elected him in November.   It's incredible, really, but the entire midsection of this country is exactly like that.  I think it's an absence of salt air that causes this sort of lunacy.  That's my theory, anyway.

The racism and bigotry is out of control. Social media is the perfect spot for those iceholes because it's relatively anonymous.

I love when people get called out like what Schilling did or when fs09 exposes the racists.

Politicians are equally disgusting but the only reason they have an audience is because the iceholes who vote them in. The amount of people who support this saddens me.

My favorite is when some white racist redneck dude down here thinks that because I'm white I'm cool with their racist shtein. No sir. I enjoy the look on their faces when I tell then to farg off

Title: Re: The Race(ism)/Hate Thread
Post by: Diomedes on March 17, 2015, 05:57:26 PM
By the standard definition of what makes a cop a hero--putting themselves between criminals and innocent civilians, etc.--he is a hero.   Any other cop who did what he did would be called a hero.  Criminal robs people, is confronted by cop, attacks cop, attempts to take cops gun, is then killed.  Cop is a hero.  That's standard shtein.

I've been saying this here for a while.  It is possible that a.) Brown got what he deserved and also b.) Cops mistreat black folks.

Now, we know that I was right:

Brown did not have his hands up.
Brown was charging Wilson when shot.
Brown did fight Wilson for his gun inside the officer's vehicle.
No evidence was found to contradict Wilson's account, or to support the account held up by protestors.

Wilson was justified. 

This (black, liberal) guy has the right of it:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-partisan/wp/2015/03/16/lesson-learned-from-the-shooting-of-michael-brown/

You have got to slow down and think for yourself.

Finally..I am also appalled by the praise, but for different reasons.  I'm disgusted because most of those people cheering are just as ignorant and non-thinking as the people who think Brown was some kind of goddamn saint.  To them, he's a dead stillupfront and that's great.  Disgusting.  That Wilson would entertain them/attend their parties, etc., is disappointing and shameful.

But it doesn't make him any less innocent of murder.

Again, read that link.  Dude gets it.

I don't mean pay off the fines I mean they wouldn't represent an individual who was slapped with that many tickets...even if it was bogus....they would look for an angle to get in and change the system....when they take on individual cases its normally a hate crime...or a prisoner getting abused...etc

Militant atheists are nearly as awful as militant religious nuts.  Both groups are filled with strident, annoying, self-important douchebags who are sure they're unflinchingly right about their beliefs, when the truth is, none of us know a farging thing.  We're amoeba in the grand scheme of the universe and that's being generous to us and terribly insulting to amoeba.

maher ranted about this in his closing monlogue last week.

no he didn't....he was ranting about political correctness gone wild....he would laugh romeys reasoning off the globe

perfect example of what maher was really talking about....this is so ridiculous that it makes even me mad

Valencia was wanted for a series of crimes committed in Marana and nearby Tucson that day including stealing a rifle from Walmart, robbing a 7-Eleven, setting fire to a church and breaking into a home, according to a local NBC-affiliate. He also allegedly stole a car and threatened to shoot himself when confronted by police earlier that day.

The cop should have done what instead?  Let the armed man continue shooting?

Hundreds of black men killed (by black men) each year in Baltimore alone....not a peep from the community.  The mother or the pastor, or whoever, is quoted "when will the madness stop?," if the murder even garners an article at all.  Maybe some soggy teddy bears on light posts and then, business as usual.  Which means, more shooting.

No mass marches on City Hall.  No blocked traffic downtown.  No sexy hashtags. 

One black dude killed by cops (maybe):   "BLACK LIVES MATTER!"

the systematic slavery in inner cities...no jobs...etc.....let a couple white kids in the suburbs OD on molly and its a national disgrace....imagine an open air molly corner near a cul de sac....never happen

black communities constantly are holding community meetings and organizing to stop the violence....but your white news doesnt cover that...they only cover the "mobs" of "animals" protesting the cops....cops who are piling on what is already an untenable situation these communties are put in....why the farg would they shut an intersection down over a black on black killing....it would give creedence to people like you who wanna blame the victims..."see even their own kind know what savages they are" is what youd hear from crackers if they did that

I understand what you're saying re:outrage, but one is controllable (in theory) and one isn't.  Mass protests aren't going to stop illicit activity.  Are protests in the streets going to stop a busted drug deal which results in a body from happening?  I don't see how it would have any real impact.  And this is of course ignoring the fact that what you're talking about is less of a racial issue and more of a poverty issue.  What it should read, IMO, is poor person kills poor person and not black male kills black male.  You put dirt poor white people in the inner city in such large percentages, with the same resources for schools etc and the same chance to 'escape' and I feel confident you would end up with the same murder rates.   What you don't need is the police, who are supposed to be there to protect and serve, exacerbating the situation. 

I think most police are good people (like any other profession) but a lot of the numbers are abominable when you really dig into targeting communities, incarceration rates, etc.  As an example...

"Nearly 20 percent of whites have used cocaine, compared with 10 percent of blacks and Latinos, according to a 2011 survey from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration -- the most recent data available.

Higher percentages of whites have also tried hallucinogens, marijuana, pain relievers like OxyContin, and stimulants like methamphetamine, according to the survey. Crack is more popular among blacks than whites, but not by much.

Still, blacks are arrested for drug possession more than three times as often as whites, according to a 2009 report from the advocacy group Human Rights Watch.

Of the 225,242 people who were serving time in state prisons for drug offenses in 2011, blacks made up 45 percent and whites comprised just 30 percent, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics."   

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/17/racial-disparity-drug-use_n_3941346.html

And that's not even getting into the disproportionate racial character of things like stop and frisk, and the crazy sentencing disparity which existed forever between crack and powdered cocaine used to insulate rich white people from significant jail time.  A lot of the anger in these communities, to me, is more about the societal structure and criminal justice system taking a shtein on black people and less about the one person who is killed.  The death is just symbolic of the larger problem.

It's a valid distinction.  Clearly, police misconduct should not be accepted.  And it is, I think, actually somewhat controllable, whereas the behavior of citizens is clearly not controllable.

I don't accept the disparity in reaction however.  On the one hand you've got a farging holocaust and on the other, by comparison, a few unjust killings.  The fact that the latter garners mass action on a "shut this city down" scale, while the much greater problem garners no mass action at all is troubling.

Most of the folks taking action today don't give a shtein about black lives, or at least no more than most who stayed at home.  They care about joining in and being a part of something, get some selfies from the big show, etc.   

I've marched enough to know that most of these things are utter bullshtein.

What good did it do us to march for Sean Bell?  I was there.  Nothing.  Cops still killing.  Cops gonna keep killing too.   And by the numbers, they aren't the problem. 

We are.

I sincerely hope you and your family are safe.  If not, get the farg out of that hell hole as soon as it's safe to do so.

Thanks.  I don't think we're in any real danger.  No stores nearby to draw crowds, etc.  We briefly considered running over to my Mom's house, so she and my Aunt aren't alone, but we all agreed that it makes zero sense to venture out.  Far greater risk of running into trouble if we're on the move.

Smart.  Two of my friends from Bama moved up to Baltimore and are about 5 blocks from where the huge building is engulfed in flames now.  I don't think venturing out is smart right now even though obviously most of it is peaceful.

I've been reading quite a bit of coverage of this and I'm not the least bit surprised at the anger on display.  It's farged up to be looting shtein, no doubt, but when this sort of rage builds up, it's like a volcanic eruption waiting to happen.  Sooner or later the lid's gonna blow off.

I'm also not surprised by the reactions I've read on Facebook by "whitey."  Lots of astoundingly tone deaf responses to the violence out there.

Good call in staying inside, Dio. Going out is too much of a risk to get caught up in something. Pour a strong one on the rocks and stay safe.

Agreed on the pent up rage too. I believe this is counterproductive and the looting will never make sense to me. But the authorities are to blame here for inciting this and causing the dam to break.

Post by: PhillyPhreak54 on April 27, 2015, 09:54:08 PM
Big picture, yes. Locally speaking this could've been quelled with the appropriate response by police and city leaders.

First is don't rough someone up and especially not bad enough to cause serious injury or death. Especially when the police vs the public has been well documented recently. The tidal wave started building with Ferguson and every incident thereafter has caused more build up.

Second is when you have an incident don't sweep it under the rug with a prolonged and likely empty investigation. Identify the officers who caused his death and dismiss then and file appropriate charges. Aka take action. By letting it linger the rage builds.

Thirdly if the police union balks at punishment then one of the pols needs to stand up to them so the public can see the system working and making as much right as possible from a horrible wrong.

Nation of Islam did do that.  Mad e a line between cops and rioters.  Advanced towards rioters, who backed, cops moved too...this went on enough to allow firemen in to do their job. 

They also killed Malcolm X.  So, yeah.

regarding Crips, I don't know about that.  They aint' much in town.  BGF owns Baltimore.

The gang news I've noticed as that they are supposedly targeting cops, with Crips and Bloods:

Oh man, he came from Oakland?  Oh shtein.  Had no idea. 

Quote
In Oakland, however, he struggled to satisfy a monitor and federal judge who were threatening a department takeover because of a lack of compliance with court-ordered reforms over the framing and beating of suspects.
 
Crime rose. Budgets shrank. When he left two years into his three-year contract he had 150 fewer officers than the 796 when he signed on. He cited poor resources and excessive bureaucracy, but those close to him said he also chafed at micromanagement by Mayor Jean Quan, who took office in January 2011.

He was definitely taken for "A Ride", but there's been reports he was involved in an ATV accident prior to the arrest, all unsubstantiated at this point.  Again with any of these cases, you need to go thru the motions, gather all evidence.  Society in general has this instant gratification need.  Trust the process, and if its a BS outcome like the officers in the rodney king case, then shtein like this is a little more justified.

From a political standpoint I'm actually liking Hogan's reactions so far.  He's 3 months in, seems to be handling the coordination duties with external agencies very well.  Didn't play games about what was occurring and wanted to reinforce that the president was in contact with him.  SRB just doesn't come across well in press conferences, she just perpetually looks annoyed.  And it looks like MOM's campaign is over two weeks in, can't say I'm sad to see that. O'malley bailed out of state politics just after the changes to the gun laws, and set his eyes on the next level.

correct its not an excuse.....its a reason.....living conditions that lead to a lack of civil or human rights justifys an uprising....whether it was a slave rebellion in 1860....irish immigrants rioting in the early 1900's....or ferguson now

you arent allowed to be appalled at a violent protest if you didnt give a shtein about the conditions that led up to it....the black clergy can scold the rioters...the mayor can call them thugs....however you or anyone else who couldnt give a flying farg about the state of west baltimore last week  year or century are not allowed to tell them how to act or judge them

By extension you seem to be saying that poor communities don't do hard work. That they laze about and are fully responsible for their own situation. Which by extension means that nothing really needs to be done other than poor people deciding not to be poor any more. How convenient for the rest of us.

Rioting and looting are not acceptable, and I'm not trying to say that they are. But to simply point a finger at the communities involved in a vacuum is ridiculous and simplistic. There are reasons that communities lash out when shtein like this happens and those reasons are legit.

Protesting about injustice: cool. Looting and beatings: not cool. And I say that regardless of color or any other differentiator. Especially when it plays into stereotypes. You can't changes minds and have people take you seriously while reinforcing negative stereotypes. I get that kids do stupid shtein, but if I were a leader in the community that's being somehow oppressed, I'd be farging outraged-- kids, you're not helping.

Disenfranchisement and frustration doesn't have to mean doing clearly the wrong thing.

so "thug" is equivalent to calling someone the "n word"

definitely is code....depending on who is saying it....if its a white person commenting on riots with black people you can be pretty sure its the n word they normally would say or would like to say

put it this way.....i never hear the word thug when west virginia or kentucky students or canucks are burning and smashing shtein up when their sports teams win/lose a big game

I think when the Mayor was the first to offer that term, "it's being taken out of context". 

Personally, i don't see the need for PC in this situation.  You are setting fire to structures, looting for tampons, you don't deserve to be called anything other than a lawbreaker.  The entire "Thug" conversation is pointless imo and just a weak attempt to shift the conversation back to the original reason this was a national story. 

Anyone see the activist get snatched up on CNN last night?  (https://media.giphy.com/media/l41m59IxLsLz4JW3C/giphy.gif)http://mashable.com/2015/04/29/baltimore-joseph-kent/

I don't use "thug" for anything, but when I think of it, the connotation is more about someone who bullies or hurts other people. Not a color thing, or even about breaking or burning things. I think of it more in terms of mob thugs.
Title: Re: The Race(ism)/Hate Thread
Post by: hunt on April 29, 2015, 08:57:43 AM
to me, "thug" describes the behavior, not the color of the people committing the acts....but if it's being interpreted otherwise, maybe barry shouldn't be throwing out the "t word".
but yeah...it's turned into something for the media to talk about.  that's what they do...sensationalize.


they should be talking more about the real issues....like the girl who was speaking out that the school books she's using were printed in the 1970's.  that ish is crazy.

SRB used it first and yes both her and barry should know better....SRB got scolded hard by the black clergy in baltimore for using it...we know the context they are using it in so its not a huge deal with them...but when they use it it just emboldens the MA whites around the country to say see i told you so...them thugs (stillupfronts) are out of control and should all be exterminated

again when white people start getting called thugs all the time by these same people who wanna go at black poeople so hard with the word then we are all good...but i dont hear that from MA

How many mafiosi were called thugs?  This whole thing just detracts from the real issues at hand within the community.  On WBAL Monday there were some great interviews with young kids within the neighborhoods who explained that the cuts to the schools, the after school programs are one everyones minds.  Still amazes me how the Wire already covered this 10 years ago. 

Also, O'malley came home yesterday from a speaking engagement in Europe.  Fenton reported he might have been in the crowd less than 5 minutes before he was getting yelled at for causing the cuts.

The origin of the word is actually Indian.  It was used to describe professional criminals who strangled their victims.  It's been used subsequently to describe any vicious criminal or group of criminals.  Take Nazi brownshirts, for example.  Can't get any whiter than those motherfargers.  Thugs, one and all.

Trying to pretend that thugs doesn't have a racial connotation to it in the way its uses these days because it,at one point in time, didn't, is silly. Its really not that hard to see who's using the word 'thug' these days and when. As IGY said, you didnt hear 'thug' to describe the Kentucky rioters...hell, you didn't even hear 'rioters', you heard fans, teens, students, etc.

shtein, you didn't even hear 'thug' when the Occupy Wall Street protests got out of hand towards the end. I think it may have got thrown around once or twice on fox, but that's nothing compared to the very liberal use of it whenever black people are protesting.

youve never heard heard it period when talking about white people...it goes beyond rioting....the word is used consistently when talking about crimes committed by blacks....when black people do heinous things the perpetrator is the one cited as being agregious ("hes an animal or a thug") whereas when white people committ crimes its the act that is more often cited ("man what a horrible tragedy")

So this was in use way before it started becoming an aka for the n-word.

First, running from the police isn't a crime.   It doesn't even establish probable cause for an arrest unless there are other circumstances present.  Second, even if you commit a crime it doesn't give the police the go ahead to murder you.  The circumstances where police can use deadly force is really really limited and it blows my mind the number of people who justify death-by-cop just because someone doesn't cooperate with the police or committed some random crime.

Wasn't there just a ruling that searches of vehicles by drug dogs is illegal without a signed warrant?  Basically if you refused, the officers are not supposed to be able to get a drug dog to arbitrarily search the exterior of your vehicle without a judge signing off. 

I know someone who knows someone, who was stopped in one of the MA states while holding a large amount of cash driving to the west coast.  DEA and local officers pulled him over for having out of state tags, took him to a warehouse and interrogated him for over 9 hours without so much as a charge.  He was released, but they kept the funds, and when it came time that the funds had to be reported, the agencies rushed a case together that had so many holes in it that it was an abomination.  Not surprisingly, they still have the funds and haven't relinquished any amount. 

Moral of the story is, don't let anyone use intimidation and fear to hand over your civil liberties.  You don't have to answer as a prick as many of the youtube videos show, but ask the simple question like Am I being Charged or detained.  No matter your race, if you are perceived as being guilty by an officer they will try every trick in the book to facilitate self incrimination.  It's a whole lot easier than doing actual policework.

So why do some cops bring in huge drug hauls so easily while you struggle to find a dime bag?

What if there was a way you could find 10lbs, 50lbs, or even 400lbs of dope?

Are you a cop who eats, sleeps, and breathes highway drug interdiction or aspire to be an interdiction officer?

Are you the cop that never, ever, gets off the highway in fear of missing that mother load that may drive by?

Do you even take a sack lunch with you so you don't have to get off the highway to eat?

I don't know everything that went down but my understanding is he eventually responded with a yes when they asked if he had money in the vehicle.  Once that admission happened, game on for the narcs.

Yeah I've read a couple stories like that where they jack people up and keep their cash. One was a Chinese dude going to Louisiana from Florida with cash to open a restaurant. They kept his money.

Here in SE Texas highway 59 is a major drug corridor. Get stopped on that road with cash and they're going to take it. Especially in a small town to hopefully boost their coffers so they can buy snazzy military equipment.

On a side not and somewhat related...the government took a couple million from a dude and his family in Vegas saying he was running an illegal bookmaking operation or something along those lines. They filed it in the super secret court to take the cash and the judge smacked them down a bit for trying to be secretive about it.

They released him, he returned to his home state.  And when he flew south to visit family, they executed a raid/warrant on his house in PA.  Didn't find anything, but they basically released him, then searched him again.  At which time he was told he had to go to MA to face charges.  Got there, and the prosecutor evidently realized it was a mess, so he avoided charges, but again they have the funds. 

I read that article before I found out about this and its just a farged up system.

I can see it now

"Mind if we search your truck to make sure you don't have anything illegal?"

"Yes I do mind. No you may not search"

Calls dogs in

"Sir we have a hit and that gives us probable cause to search the vehicle"


Wasn't there just a ruling that searches of vehicles by drug dogs is illegal without a signed warrant?  Basically if you refused, the officers are not supposed to be able to get a drug dog to arbitrarily search the exterior of your vehicle without a judge signing off. 
 

No and yes.  Before, it was a state issue to an extent.  Perhaps unsurprisingly, in Alabama you had fewer rights regarding k9 searches than in Pennsylvania.

A K-9 unit cannot arbitrarily, as you say, be called for a traffic stop.  However, you don't need a warrant - all you need is "reasonable suspicion."   A cop can usually argue for reasonable suspicion if pressed in court, so it isn't a groundbreaking change.

Remember this when it comes to searches and their legality - you have no privacy rights to something that is visible to others (generally speaking).  This is the plain sight/touch rule.  If a cop can see heroin in your passenger seat, it's not illegal for you to be arrested then even if you didn't do anything.  The heroin is within plain view.  You lose. 

Cops also use this reasonable suspicion standard to skirt the law with Terry stops.  Meaning a cop can pat you down for weapons if they have a reasonable suspicion that you're going to commit some violent crime etc.  But what happens is a lot of times this is a pretext for a drug search.  They say they're patting you down for weapons (because they need PC to do a drug search) and they "feel" drugs on you at which point it comes in via plain feel.  If the stop is legal, and they "feel" drugs, that comes in against you even though they didn't have cause to search you for drugs in the first place.

An NAACP leader and prominent civil rights activist in Washington state has been pretending to be black for years, her parents admitted local media Thursday.

Rachel Dolezal, who heads Spokane’s NAACP chapter and teaches Africana studies at Eastern Washington University, refused to directly answers any questions about her alleged racial ruse after it was exposed.

A KXLY reporter bluntly asked her, “Are you African American?”

After a stunned pause, she replied: "“I don’t understand the question."

The question of her race "is not as easy as it seems," Dolezal told the Spokane Spokesman-Review.

"We're all from the African continent," she added.

Dolezal’s parents, who are both white, provided a birth certificate and childhood pictures of their daughter to the Coeur d’Alene Press to back up their claims she has been grossly misrepresenting herself.

The birth certificate confirmed she was born to the white couple, and the pictures show Dolezal as a pasty, blonde child — a complete contrast the darker skin and curly brown hair she has now.

he recently had been going off about Trayvon martin and that blacks were trying to take over the world

was rocking racist Rhodesian and south african flags on his facebook page

Definitely for the Fox news crowd.  You've also had some very polarizing cases Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Eric Gardner, Freddie Gray.  The latter 3 which resulted in eventual riot like situations.  You also have the social media and internet age which puts everyone's awful views right out there for all to see.  In the end I blame all media on the Left and Right.  Outside of Al Jazeera and Vice which imo try to tell the real story, the news the everyday American is exposed to is nothing more than sensationalist shteinburgers.  Based off Facebook alone and the viral vitriolic hate articles which are funded by groups on either side, I'm not exactly living in a state of bliss. 

Everything still has that feel that it's going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better. 

And I totally agree with IGY and the fact that the representation in both congress and the senate by Republicans is nauseating.

Not "hate", but an emotion we've no word for, that other languages may well have had. A word for the pleasure of owning other humans. The pleasure of growing rich on their backs. Controlling them utterly, through the threat of torture or death. Selling their offspring and growing richer still. With maybe a prefix for the rage that comes with the frustration of that pleasure. It's that. The memory of that, across not so many generations at all.

Maine's Truth and Reconciliation Commission finds 'evidence of cultural genocide' (http://www.cbc.ca/m/news/canada/manitoba/maine-s-truth-and-reconciliation-commission-finds-evidence-of-cultural-genocide-1.3119567)

Quote
In 2013, the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission was launched, tasked with investigating why so many Wabanaki children ended up in child welfare.

Although the Wabanaki are just four tribes with around 8,000 members, it was found that Wabanaki children are five times more likely to be apprehended by child welfare agencies than other children in the state.

While Canada's Sixties Scoop is considered to have lasted from the 1960s to the 1980s (some believe it started as early as the 1950s) - the Wabanaki TRC investigated the relationship with state child welfare between 1978 right up until 2013.

Bacon said the sheer amount of apprehensions had the same effect that residential schools had on indigenous children in Canada - many Wabanaki children were sexually or physically abused. They also lost their language and culture.

So the whole stars and bars thing has really stirred up some white impotent racist rage in this country, and as usual, it's reared its ugly farging head on Facebook this past week.   I live in the south, obviously, so I expect a lot of rationalizing responses from these dipshteins down here, but what's really disturbed me are the number of comments I've read from people up north defending this hideous rag.  Since when do people from Philly and South Jersey line up to defend a hideous symbol of southern brutality, sedition and outright farging treason?   It's mind-boggling to me, but then again, so is the outright willful stupidity of 99.99999% of the species.

We had a great week as progressives with the supreme court's affirmation on health care, gay marriage, et al, and now it seems as though the "silent majority" of poor, put-upon white evangelical racist corksuckers in this hell hole of a country are "fixin" to fight back.   And they've chosen the confederate battle flag as their symbol of patriotic rebellion against, what, freedom... democracy... or is it just a plain aversion to basic human decency they're upset over?

I admit I'm a little sensitive right now with some things going on in my private life that I won't get into here, but just when I thought the people in this country were starting to get it, this shtein comes up to pimp slap me across the face and remind me just how soul-crushing the beliefs and attitudes of people are in America in 2015.

Anyway, rant over... just needed to vent a little.

Happy birthday, America.   Let's try and not be quite so awful to each other in this new year.

Stop saying "confederate." in regards to the Civil War.  Say "Slaver."  Because that's the goddamn fundamental cause.  Lee was a slaver general.  The cause was slavery. 

I'm done with the word.  You meet me in a party, I call them the slaver army, and if you and I can't agree on the fundamental fact that the South fought for slavery, that the battle flag of recent acclaim was a forgotten relic before it was resurrected only fifty or so years ago...etc.

God damn it there is a time to say that tolerance only goes so far and then rebuke or resistance only are appropriate.  This bullshtein about "erasing" history with the removal of flags or statues honoring traitorous slavers is demagoguery by definition.  It is literally impossible for the rest of eternity that the Civil War, and with it Stonewall Jackson, be forgotten, unless all humanity is obliterated as well.

http://www.wbaltv.com/news/state-police-trooper-shot-man-after-fight-in-north-east/34890244

So this shooting happened up the road from me last weekend.  State Trooper was on his way to another call when he saw the deceased at Walmart.  The deceased apparently was forbidden from being on the premises since he had been caught stealing so many times from there.  Dude was supposed to turn himself in 3 days earlier, tried to fight with the cop and attempted to flee.  Officer shot him twice in a close struggle with the wife supposedly in the car. 

Locally, the family is trying to say he's an innocent guy who was changing his life, and he was murdered in cold blood by the trooper.  When I look at the circumstances, I see a 30 year old guy with 32 cases on him in the Maryland Judiciary Case Search, an outstanding warrant, and a history of assault and multiple incarcerations.  Not to mention a charge of Assaulting a DOC Employee with fecal matter, one of Phreaks favorites.  If he had turned himself in, then he would be in a different situation today. 

In this case, I'll go ahead and assume the officer didn't wake up and decide he was going to take a guy out in a crowded Walmart parking lot.

A few years ago when TO went to the Cowboys my cousins neighbor had this huge Cowboys flag outside his house. The night before the game we soaked it with gasoline and burnt it. Don't fly that shtein in my city.

I'm driving down my street this morning and a guy a few streets over has a huge flagpole with an American flag and a Confederate flag flying underneath it. It's getting the gasoline treatment. I'm thinking mischief night but they might be on high alert so I may wait a few more days but it's definitely happening. At worst I get caught and I owe the dude a flag, but farg that shtein in my neighborhood.

I have a black skull cap, black sweats, a black hoodie etc. it's at the end of the street but I'm thinking once I light it I can go the opposite way then cut through some yards. Not the type of shtein I should be doing as a home owner who's almost 40 and has a kid but farg flying that shtein openly without repercussions.

I would vote for Trump a million goddamn times before I'd vote for Cruz.  Cruz is beyond awful.  He's the sort that would start launching nukes because Jesus told him to.  Trump is just a farging dancing monkey doing and saying anything that comes into his pea brain at any given moment.  Yes, he's a greedy, racist, chauvinistic, bigoted piece of shtein and the country would be a hideous place to live with him in power, but at least it would still be here.  Cruz is just that spooky to me.  Every time I hear him speak I think of Greg Stillson from "The Dead Zone."

Trump has no ideology past "win."  If he thinks he's got to be pro-life to win, then he's pro-life.  If that changes, so will his position.  This makes him very dangerous in power, of course.

Cruz is a major mullah in the American Taliban.  He is the opposite of Trump insofar as for Cruz, ideology is everything.  He would never change a position to get a vote.  Vested with power, he would be a very dangerous President.

trump is a blatant racist who would be put in the white house by the scum of this country....you cant have a racist american president in 2016...not a good look....plus it would massively embolden the white supremeist and militia movements in this country as they would see their guy in the white house

on top of that trumps ego is such that when you are a carnival barker like him you are constantly trying to top yourself...so when trump says hes going to bomb the shtein out of the middle east for example whether he truly believes it or not he almost forces himself to do it so that he looks as tough or tougher than he did running for president...I suspect this goes for most issues...he probably doesn't 100% believe in defunding planned parenthood but he will definitely double down on all the things he said during the campaign and try to do it...to him that's winning as much as winning the election is winning....he would love to say see I told you so about pretty much anything

at its root it will never completely stop until cops and really people in general stop looking at black men as criminals and start looking at them as human beings...of course that is not stopping in any of our lifetimes...in the immediate one thing that could happen would be for maybe just a few of these cops to actually farging be prosecuted and found guilty of murder...I don't know if that would deter the individual cop on the street but it certainly would wake up departments and initiate change in training and discipline...also body cameras need to be on every cop in country today....make it a federal mandate even for local and state police....have congress pass a bill to fund the project and get it done

cameras aren't a hypothetical like what would be the outcome if I did shoot and kill a suspect...what will the consequences be...just like the death penalty isn't a deterrent to murder convicting a few cops wont change the mindset of the average beat cop...but a body camera is REAL...its literally looking at you at all times...theres no way that wont change behavior
Title: Re: The Race(ism)/Hate Thread
Post by: PhillyPhreak54 on July 07, 2016, 10:34:21 AM
Body cams should be federally mandated. If a department refuses then whatever fed money they get is yanked.

But yes until these guys are convicted of murder it's not changing.

Shootings like this also need to be DOJ only investigations. Local prosecutors shouldn't be involved.

Most people on FB use their real name, but there's quite a few out there who don't and use something more like a screen name.  But most still have a gazillion pics attached to their profile so even with a fake name, the chances of remaining anonymous on FB are pretty slim.

Quote
I am a white american male. I’m married to a beautiful blond-haired green-eyed woman and have two amazing blond-haired blue-eyed boys.  I was a blond-haired blue-eyed child who grew up in suburban New Jersey in a solid family with a mother, a father, a brother and two dogs. I lived a life marked by opportunity and forgiveness; and while I may not have always had “much”, I have always had the benefit of the doubt.  I was raised to treat everyone equally, regardless of race, or any other demographic for that matter. And while my town may have been predominantly white, I certainly didn’t grow up isolated from other races and cultures.  But even with the upbringing and exposure I was blessed with, I’m probably still a racist.  I don’t mean racist like a hate filled bigot who dehumanizes and devalues the lives of others based on skin color.  I mean that I am uncomfortable with, ignorant of and distant from racial inequalities that exist in my country. It is okay for me to admit this.  It doesn’t make me evil, it makes me ready for change.  This admission took two things: research and honesty.  Over the last couple of years I have read, watched, listened to and participated in countless discussions on the topic coming from a broad range of sources.  Through this process I was able to realize the aforementioned realities. Which is great for me, but for purposes of this post, let’s unpack them a little.

I am uncomfortable with racial inequalities that exist in my country. I live my life day in and day out and only rarely am I forced to confront these realities. Certainly the media, social and otherwise, shine a light on the issue, but that is not what I mean.  Reading a powerful blog post or an inspiring tweet does not constitute confronting anything.  What I mean is that when I get pulled over, shop in a store, go for a job interview, meet a new person for the first time, etc… I expect to be judged by who I am.  Yes, I am tattooed and bearded so I’m sure that on occasion someone generalizes about me, but I don’t worry about it because I know that once they get to know me they will move beyond those judgements. And I assume that they will eventually get to know me, because even with their judgement, they will give me the benefit of the doubt.  I live my life benefiting from other people’s glass walls.  That is simply not true for people of color.  They are forced to confront it every single day.  Perhaps not in an overtly bigoted and hateful way (although I’m sure that happens too), but in the “deficit of the doubt.”  The security guard that makes a mental note that they are there, the woman who locks her car door as they walk by, and yes, the times they get pulled over for driving while black. (No matter how much or how little you think that happens, we all know it happens.)  So you see, while I am very uncomfortable when forced to confront a terrible reality that I can generally avoid, my friends and neighbors of color are forced to confront it every day.  Consequently, they have formed a thicker skin to the subject and are more free to discuss it.  This can easily be misunderstood as being rash or aggressive because it creates an uneasy feeling in me. Let me put it this way: we all have that person in our lives who always manages to say the one thing that makes everyone in the room uncomfortable. Maybe it’s a friend or coworker, maybe it’s your cousin or your sister-in-law; whoever it is, our attitude is generally that it is their problem.  We feel like they are doing something to us, because we are feeling uncomfortable with what they are saying or doing, rather than taking responsibility for our own feelings.  Until I can acknowledge that I feel more uncomfortable talking about racial inequality than people who have been forced to deal with it every single day of their lives, I will never be able to get over myself enough to be a part of the solution.  And if I’m not a part of the solution, I’m a part of the problem.

I am ignorant of the racial inequalities that exist in my country.  I was recently watching a Sunday service from North Point Church.  In the service the lead pastor, Andy Stanley, invited two African American men who were also christian leaders to be a part of a discussion about recent events and racism in general in this country.  They both explained the reality that they were taught how to behave if they ever got pulled over by the police. wallet They talked about it as if it was just another part of growing up.  An obvious lesson like don’t drink and drive or always pay your bills.  This may not seem so strange until they described exactly what they meant by “how to behave if you ever get pulled over”.  One of men relayed that he was taught that you never reach for your wallet.  Now, I understand that if you are being addressed by a police officer you don’t want to be erratic or make any sudden moves, but the degree to which this lesson was ingrained in him as an African American young man was startling.  It ran so deep in his heart that when he heard about recent events he admitted that there was a part of him the thought to himself, “Why’d you reach for your wallet? You know you’re not supposed to reach for your wallet.”  I will teach my boys to always be respectful of police. I will teach them not to resist or run if addressed by police and to always be upfront and honest, but I will not have to teach them not to reach for their wallet.  I cannot imagine feeling like I have to teach my children how to protect themselves from the people who are meant to protect them.  If ignorance is defined as lack of knowledge, education or awareness then I most certainly ignorant of the racial inequalities that exist in our country.  The beautiful thing about ignorance, though, is that it is easily remedied; but not without willingness and intention.  There is a video that has been circulating recently showing several people sitting in a diner, all of whom are white except one.  The waitress comes out and brings all the white patrons pie.  The African American man then asks the waitress, “Where’s my pie?” to which the other patrons respond, “Why are you making such a big deal? All pie matters.”  It is meant to illustrate the tension between #blacklivesmatter & #alllivesmatter.  I think it is an excellent illustration except that it misses one of the most important factors.  It would have been for more accurate if the white guys who had received their pie were blind-folded.  Because whether or not we mean to, most of us are blind-folded to the things that people of color deal with every day.  That is not our fault, but whether or not we stay that way is on us.

My discomfort and my ignorance can be attributed primarily to one thing: I am distant from the racial inequalities that exist in my country.  I live in New Jersey.  I am not someone who has gone their whole life without interacting with people of color.  I am not someone who is solely informed by the media in regard to cultures and races outside my own.  I have friends, coworkers, neighbors, mentors and family members who are people of color but I am still distant from the racial inequalities that mark their lives.  I have never made it a secret that I was a “rebellious youth”.  And by that I mean that I was a criminal.  I made very bad decisions and did a lot of awful things.  Some things that I will never be able to fully make amends for.  I have, however, never spent more than a weekend in jail.  I have always attributed the reality that I am a free man to God protecting me and allowing me to learn my lesson without prison time.  I still absolutely know that to be true.  However, I have to acknowledge that my “get out of jail free cards ” came, at least in part, due to my ability to catch a good sunburn in 15 minutes.  I also regularly share with people how grateful I am for all of the opportunities I have been given to do things I really wasn’t qualified for.  I have been allowed behind the scenes in a lot of situations that shaped who I am and developed me in my field with no explainable reason.  While I will never really know for sure, I have to wonder if my experience would have looked the same way if I didn’t.  The “deficit of the doubt” that people of color experience throughout their lives is something that I am only beginning to understand.  And that understanding is really only an intellectual one.  It is often said that the greatest distance in the world is 18″, the distance from your head to your heart.  I will always remain distant from the deficit of the doubt until I allow it be hit close to my heart.  The question then is: How?

Know someone.

I don’t mean know someone in that way that white people tend to reference when racism comes up in conversation.  That, “One of my best friends is black” way.  I mean I have to enter in.  I have to make it my business to overcome my uncomfortability;  I have to be intentional about educating myself and raising my awareness so that my ignorance can diminish; and I have make it personal.  I need to let my heart break at the fact that there are people in this country who do not receive the benefit of the doubt, ever.  I need to care enough to do something.  Something more than just write a blog post or share a powerful video clip.  I have to build genuine relationships with people of color and stop the whole ridiculous “I don’t see color” BS.  I need to see color and learn to appreciate it for what it is.  I need to allow myself to participate in and grow from and enjoy a culture that is not my own.  One that has its pluses and minuses like all others.  I need to be willing to get close enough to applaud when there is a victory, mourn when there is a loss and call it out when there is a shortcoming. I need to actually see my brothers and sisters of color as family.   I have a certain degree of power and privilege because of my skin color.  That is not something I need to feel guilty about.  I didn’t ask for it or seek it out, but I have it.  The responsibility for having it isn’t on me; but the responsibility for what I do with it is.

Pretty insightful piece.  I don't necessarily think the guy is a racist because of the reasons he stated, but I won't argue with his premise.  Takes balls to admit the shtein he has in this essay.

1. Disgusting

2. Confederate flags in Massachusetts?

3. So much for the argument that the stars and bars isn't a racist symbol eh? So much for the "celebrating southern heritage" shtein. It's akin to the nazi flag and definitely something used by the ignorant kkk idiots.

4. These are the Trumpers. He empowers pigs like this to feel this shtein is ok.

one of the comments -
A few months ago, white people were praising Muhammad Ali (in death) for the same stand they are condemning Colin Kaepernick for (in life).

true comment but lets not forget what ali went through, at the time. seems some things haven't changed.

no debate from me about what he is speaking out against in this country, but wearing a shirt of a guy who oppressed his people, including many blacks, is hypocritical.

my wife is Cuban, she has relatives that spent time in jail because they spoke out against castro and his government, and others who suddenly just, disappeared.

IMO, ignorant decision on his part.

The t-shirt he donned shows Malcolm X and Cuban dictator Fidel Castro with the caption “Like Minds Think Alike.”

dumb, does he have any idea about that meeting that happened only a year into castro's rule ? would Malcolm have met him later in life had he lived long enough to really see what fidel did to Cubans ?


again, im with kaep on his stance about America 100%, but he probably should've worn a different shirt. like maybe one with just Malcolm on it.

Because so many people are racist and they support his bullshtein. His dialogue and the media giving him the farging platform to spread it have poisoned people.

So why don't his scandals get the play that Hillary's do? Because he's driving ratings on the networks and clicks on websites. People don't give a farg what he does because he hates minorities.

Also, how's this for racism in 'Murica?

Cliven Bundy's wacko friends and family take over federal property armed to the teeth and the cops just sit around watching them for weeks.  Meanwhile, in Standing Rock, ND, Native Americans protesting the latest and greatest pipeline were met by cops and private security who unleashed attack dogs.  Cell signal is being blocked so that protestors can't upload photos or video to the www or post live videos on social media.  The ND governor called up the state Nat'l Guard despite the fact that the protest demonstrations have been peaceful and weapons aren't present.  This has barely been touched on by national media even though it's been going on well over a month now.

Oh, most definitely.  I probably wouldn't have a clue what was going on right now, let alone how natives have been treated just during my own lifetime if it weren't for the fact that I've been with my squaw for like 8 years now.  She keeps me up to speed on this stuff.  Just saw a report this morning that said back in 2007 the UN had a vote on a policy to help protect and preserve the indigenous people of the world.  Only 4 countries voted against this proposal.  1 of them was the US.  After Obama was elected, he sent a new US representative to the UN to change the US vote.  Good job, Barry. 

Anyway, the way these people are still being treated is deplorable.  And the fact that it gets practically no media attention is astonishing.  MSNBC and Democracy Now are about the only 2 outlets that are providing any kind of coverage for it.

Race issue aside, I'm not hearing enough people talking about the role guns play here.  Can you really expect cops not to shoot first when everyone is armed at least as well as they are?  These cops know damn well that every single motherfarger they engage could be packing, and if they shoot first too often, well maybe that's a consequence of reasonable fear?  You can't police people who are better armed than you are.

That's a major problem for sure. Theyre trigger happy because everyone in their mother has a gun. The stupid farging open carry laws make it worse. You could have some unhinged farg legally carrying an ar15 on his shoulder and just decide he doesn't like someone and shoot them.

North Carolina is open carry so even if the deceased guy did have a gun he was within his rights. It makes it easy for the cops to say he twitched or moved it towards them.

It's a problem and will only get worse. Trigger happy cops are a byproduct of everyone being armed. Toss in the racism and here we are.

it should be noted and i im not criticizing the movement in any way and police were murdering black men long before BLM but the black lives matters movement and the anti police rhetoric that is so prevalent now mixed with of course the police killings in dallas have cops closer to the edge than ever...it cannot be easy for any cop racist or not these days...so imagine the racist ones getting that pressure thrown on top of the already existing hate and paranoia inside them

And on Tulsa...amazing how many people in this country now think that cops are free to shoot whenever they want. Car broke down and dude is acting off his rocker? Shoot.

Even if the car was fine and the guy was blown out of his mind on PCP...no reason to use lethal force.

Back off or if you feel he needs to be subdued the taser is there or God forbid you use hands. Four officers can put a guy down.

I agree with that.

Unfortunately the ever increasing bad eggs have ruined it for the ones who do the job for really helping people and bettering the community. There have been way way way too many instances of police aggression and shootings to think otherwise. It is painting with a broad brush but the evidence supports the trend.

I know many cops and my grandpop was one...but people need to see (same as the military btw) that there are bad people in those uniforms.

Cops are almost all arrogant macho iceholes.  They're brainwashed into believing they're superior to those they supposedly serve from the second they enter the academy.  I know this for a fact having family and friends in law enforcement.  The "training" they receive has nothing to do with actually protecting the people.  It's all about enforcing whatever laws are on the books at any given moment.  I'm sorry but I don't support them at all anymore.

Also, how's this for racism in 'Murica?

Cliven Bundy's wacko friends and family take over federal property armed to the teeth and the cops just sit around watching them for weeks.  Meanwhile, in Standing Rock, ND, Native Americans protesting the latest and greatest pipeline were met by cops and private security who unleashed attack dogs.  Cell signal is being blocked so that protestors can't upload photos or video to the www or post live videos on social media.  The ND governor called up the state Nat'l Guard despite the fact that the protest demonstrations have been peaceful and weapons aren't present.  This has barely been touched on by national media even though it's been going on well over a month now.

Quote
Three men were arrested on Friday for threatening to attack an apartment complex and mosque in Garden City.

Acting U.S. Attorney Tom Beall says Curtis Allen, 49, Gavin Wright, 51, and Patrick Stein were all charged with domestic terrorism.

Beall said the three were planning to bomb an apartment complex and mosque in Garden City occupied by a Muslim community of about 120 Somali refugees.

Beall said the men planned to carry out the attack on Nov. 9, the day after Election Day.

In March, writer Bethany Mandel related her own experience. After tweeting about Trump’s anti-Semitic followers, she was called “slimy Jewess” and told that she “deserves the oven.” It got worse:

Not only was the anti-Semitic deluge scary and graphic, it got personal. Trump fans began to “dox” me — a term for adversaries’ attempt to ferret out private or identifying information online with malicious intent. My conversion to Judaism was used as a weapon against me, and I received death threats in my private Facebook mailbox, prompting me to file a police report.

Yeah, pretty sure the pissed off hippies are painting that.  A real racist would have misspelled Sieg Heil

I was thinking the same thing.  That graffiti could have come from either end of the spectrum.

Whoever did that deserves the book to be throw at them.  But to me (without seeing any clues to the ID of the perpetrators), that could have been just as easily someone using the graffiti to take pot shots at Trump (in the pictures) as anything else.  Or, yes, it could be Trump fascist fanatics.  From the article, I have no idea.  Either way, put them away for the common good.

The people I know have been eerily quiet around me.   Especially my co-workers.  I never push my beliefs on them, especially since I was promoted into management, but I have to say, I'm pleasantly surprised so far.   

As for the rest of humanity, farg em.   I hope the poor saps who voted for that motherfarger get reamed so hard their ancestors feel it.

To back up my previous statement about a lot of left people painting racist things and blaming it on "Trump America"
Keep in mind, I've been a Democrat my whole life including this election, but if these crybabies out in the street is what my party now represents, I'm going to have to do some serious rethinking.

That's how you get Republicans. You get older and you get disgusted by the things kids say and do because you don't remember what fargups you and your friends were at that age.

I'm working in a school that's about 70% black and 15% Latino, and a senior student was shot and killed on Tuesday....between that and the election yesterday was pretty farging grim at work. One SS teacher who's class I sit in on with my students tried to 'remain neutral' and act like there's good and bad about Trump and his campaign wasn't totally racist...but one female Latino student wasn't having it. She called out Trump and his followers and it was awesome.

The manager violated the Americans With Disabilities Act.  Of course, this being Trump's America, he'll probably get an Iron Cross as a reward.

There wasn't rampant racism before Trump won the presidency? And here I thought black people were getting shot by the police almost every time they got pulled over for not violating the law.

Oh it was bad before. But it'll be worse now.

And the police killings will continue. But now instead of our president having a press conference and condemning the police actions we'll have a president who either will pretend they didn't happen or he will blame the victim and praise the popo's.
