You know what? Come on, man, I know some bigots traditionally say "Some of my best friends are black", but seriously, you expect us to believe you?

Why do we insist on feeding the troll? Why?!
9/28/2008 4:04:53 AM
I've noticed that lately the trolls seem to be turning on one another. Maybe they'll kill each other off?

I really, really wish it were a possibility, Mortok, but I doubt it.
9/28/2008 6:19:46 AM
Don't knock it, they haven't figured out yet that we find their bigotry to be funny... I mean, we might as well be amused by people so willingly stupid.

Ah, but they'll be pure-bred Nordic trolls. All pasty white from lurking under bridges and avoiding sunlight. Or enlightenment of any description.

This quote is taken out of context.

/I know more than a few blacks who say that their lives were better before the civil rights movement./
No, no, I think you're referring to the economic crisis faced by black South Africans today which is worse than the one they faced in apartheid South Africa. But that still does not justify treating blacks like third-class citizens. They are PEOPLE, plain and simple. And as such, they deserve to be treated like human beings.

Patronising bastard. Folks should know their place in society, should they? Then get your redneck ass out of this democracy and find yourself a feudal state to live in. And I hope you're the serf who's born to shovel shit all his life.

Life was a lot simpler for black folks, then, because they knew their place in society, and if they forgot, they were reminded. Brutally. Black folks would raise their families, go to church on Sunday, get lynched for looking at white women the wrong way and spend time with their kids during the holidays. They didn't have any of these complex issues to deal with that that we've forced on them today. Our society has placed the black American in an impossible situation, and I know more than a few blacks who say that their lives were better before the civil rights movement.
Just pointing out a few of the things you forgot to include in your post.

I would love to see how a quote that begins with the sentence "I agree with Bigot" could possibly be out of context.

@American Minute Man
The quote is taken out of context? It's the entirety of the comment you made. Or do you mean it's taken out of context of all the other racist bullshit you spew here?

Well, they were arrested without reason, treated as second class citizens and employed in the worst tasks. But what the hell!, they were happy doing tasks you'd never do for love or money.

"I know more than a few blacks who say that their lives were better before the civil rights movement."
I'm willing to bet they don't know a single black person.
9/29/2008 5:24:55 PM
Quote taken out of context, meaning, I said royal bullshit and I tried to make it right. Like "I know there are more than a few blacks that say that their lives were better before the civil rights movement". Well, maybe in a BDSM club.

"Bigot" is the name of another poster that I was responding to. This quote has been taken out of context, because, you are using it in an attempt to portray me as a racist.
9/29/2008 8:44:40 PM
When you talk about people "knowing their place" you are at the very least prejudiced, most likely racist.
Active or not in your actions, actively stating that things are better when a group of people are persecuted is downright wrong.
9/29/2008 10:59:00 PM
AMM, you ARE a racist. And we don't need this post to tell us so. There are a million others.
If you don't want to be portrayed as racist, quit trolling this board, and find one that supports your narrow world-view.

Actually, if I recall correctly, American MinuteMan was the same jackass a few months ago who was ragging on Hispanics. He even made a shitty poem about it, too. I think it was last month, so some of you might have to go back a few in the archives to find it, but the proof's there.
9/30/2008 1:50:46 AM
I remember this quote and the context it was posted in does not change its nature. It was just as racist then, within context, as it is now. But, I honestly believe you cannot see this, which is what is so amazing and disturbing.
9/30/2008 4:07:03 AM
Clearly AMM doesn't know his place. GET OFF THE COMPUTER AND BACK TO RAISIN' THEM CHICKENS, YOU INBRED SOUTHERN HICK!
9/30/2008 3:06:38 PM
Yes, you asume that people have to "know their place" and it's not racist. I wonder how you'd react if the one to "know his place" is you.
9/30/2008 7:38:46 PM
In this context, a racist would be someone who actively hates or seeks to persecute black Americans. I am advocating just the opposite. I care deeply for our black neighbors, and that's why I'm pointing out an area in which I believe our society has failed them.
Yes, segregation had its problems. "Seperate but equal" was an ideal that was never fully realized. But, with some modification, I believe the system could have been retooled to allow blacks to thrive in their own communities, without being burdened by the complexities of white American society. Today, black Americans are being forced into ghettos, where they live with drugs, disease, and rampant crime. Had blacks been allowed to develop and thrive as an independent American community, they would have had the opportunity to develop their own culture without being thrown out into white American society without the education and financial freedom necessary to succeed.
