    that article is severely flawed; it basically portrays all white people as racist when there are racists of all colors, white, black, asian, hispanic. One could also argue when are so many black people racist? or how come whenever there losing to a legitimate argument they play the race card?

    the only truly open minded people i've ever met were in the military where you could say a wide variety of racist, anti religious, and generally bigoted remarks and no one cared.

    sounds more like the writer just wants attention oh poor me, why does this happen to ME. sounds more like a YOU problem to me

    i'm not say'n, i'm just say'n

    "Note from a site editor: As of today (12/18/11), comments are closed on this piece. It’s simply gotten too tiresome to moderate subtly as well as overtly racist, anti-Black “go back to Africa/Black people are prejudiced/we’re all one race/your tone isn’t nice so I won’t hear your point/only Black people complain [so there's no racism], etc.” comments. This site has many good articles you are welcome to comment on. This one is just trollbait and we have a lot of other site work to do. Sorry."

    DoomsDayAlpaca = racist troll.

    Oh god this is great, it's like you read the entire article and then attempted to just use all the things the writer wrote against.

    Probably far more than you. Take some responsibility in your own life instead of giving it to others and blaming the world. Life is much more satisfying that way. The site editor called it right though - you are a troll.

    Oh shit a twofer!

    Really though I'm ready and willing for you to start a discussion with me on the effects of race in society. I mean you claim to know more than me, you should have no problem defending your views.

    You clearly have no understanding what it means to take responsibility of your own life. That you feel insistent these are obstacles that can't at least be overcome is indicative of the sad cycle of victimhood you continue to see yourself in. Being responsible is not to either deny that racism exists or that you are expected to take it. One day you'll figure it out... or perhaps you won't since you clearly seem bent on blaming everyone else for your problems and inability to retain a job.

    It's funny...because I haven't talked about having an inability to keep a job, or anything else you've brought up. In fact you seem to just be randomly pulling things from your ass...in fact..yes these are stereotypes thrown on black people!

    Please by all means, tell me I'm wrong and then explain how.

    I particularly liked this quote:

    They get off on seeing minorities angry and upset. That’s why they spew the bile they do online. So when you know the score and ignore them, that’s why they get pissed off because that lowly colored person just took their mighty whitey power away from them.

    Interesting.

    SA1911 saidthe only truly open minded people i've ever met were in the military where you could say a wide variety of racist, anti religious, and generally bigoted remarks and no one cared.

    I'm not sure what you mean by this. When I joined the US Army in 1969 I never heard racial remarks at all. Not sure why, but the Army was the most racially integrated organization I ever knew.

    Maybe because it was official policy, and it was enforced, no opportunity to express alternate racist views. Racism wasn't permitted, and in what was essentially an authoritarian society violations could be officially punished. Trust me, people in authority DID care about racist remarks.

    We also had a lot of Black Drill Sergeants. I shudder to think of the fate of any Private who uttered a racial slur. The First Amendment protecting free speech is greatly restricted while serving in the US military, but there is no limit to the number of push-ups you might find yourself doing.

    Furthermore as soldiers we all pretty much looked alike in our uniforms. Little opportunity to express ourselves in terms of our ethnic background, regionalism, our socio-economic standing, or anything personal about ourselves. There were times I actually did forget what the skin color of other soldiers whom I knew was, because such a distinction had no application or value in what we were doing. So I criticize this author's third point.

    At the risk of making a cliched "some of my best friends" statement, my best friend for a year at one of my assignments in 1970-71 was Black. We were inseparable off duty, not an easy accomplishment in Kentucky in that era, when restrooms and water fountains were still segregated, and Whites stared at us like we were outer space aliens. But none of my fellow White soldiers ever criticized me for it, nor even mentioned it, just taking it for granted.

    So I'm puzzled by your statement. If there are inappropriate racial remarks in the US military today then that is a great step backwards from what I encountered over 40 years ago. Before speculating as to cause, such as draft force versus volunteer, I'd like to hear others who've recently served comment on this.

    Considering the source of such a comment I think it best that it and its' originator be swept into the sewer where it is richly deserves to be.

    Merry Christmas Tiger. May the Bird of Paradise shit on your head.

    yourname2000 saidMost telling about this thread was not the topic but the date posted. If the best thing you could think to post on Christmas day was this dreck from April, Doom, you've got serious issues...you are to be pitied.

    If you absolutely must stir up the mud on racial issues (and it appears you absolutely must!), try launching this discussion in February, I think it would be better received.

    Here's hoping you had other things on your mind on Christmas than this.


    I'm sorry, all I heard was " hey could your people keep their issues in the designated area of February? kthxbye"

    And last time I checked the 26th wasn't Christmas..
