The Devil's Greatest Trick

Again we see that racism denies historical and current facts. It, like the devil, denies its own existence. If you were born during Prohibition, I'll give you a pass on calling African-Americans "colored." But, you don't have to lynch a black person to be racist.

  1. i'm such a hermit. i try and try to limit my daily contact with non-blacks and those of us who infuriate the hell outta me... i'm on the verge of becoming a self-segregationist - the chinese in america do it, the germans, the irish... cultures typically clan together to protect their cultural aspects. no one calls chinatown or germantown a 'ghetto'. but black communities are labeled 'ghetto' in a heart beat. where's 'africatown' when we need it? i need a place to go to in private to wash off the racism when its flung at me. 'the hood' needs to become our secret signal for 'black-spa-retreat'... for 'rejuvenation'.

    "why arent we appreciative for what america has done FOR us?"

    i am. it taught me to be duplicitous when it comes to protecting my own interests and the interests of my people. i'm not a violent person, but i dont think i'd have a problem giving some daughter-of-the-confederate a thorough beat down. she can let me ike turner her; thats what america can do for me.

This isn't too complicated. If you disagree with me, I'm more than happy to have an honest discussion. I'm quite open to learning new facts and ideas. I'm dying for a conservative to explain their ideas in a sensible way.

But, I do have rules, and they also apply to those who agree with me. They just get the benefit of my already knowing the fact they'll be referring to.

So, here're the comment thread rules:

1 - Use facts.
2 - Refer to policy.
3 - Don't rely on theories and conjectures. Show me how, for example, a public health insurance option will lead to "rationing" of health care.
4 - No unfounded attacks on any entity.

If you break those rules, I will edit your comment to my own whimsical satisfaction.

Lastly, perhaps most importantly, I'm not going to entertain too much pro-white/racism-denying discussion. I want this to be a space to discuss strategies to fight racism, not space where I have to fight racism. I want anti-racists to be able to come here for a mental respite. If what you're interested in doing is attempting to demonstrate the fallacy of anti-racism by repeating the same ole comments and questions and accusations we hear all the time, please do that somewhere else.
