The argument that liberals are hypocrites because they are intolerant of prejudiced people will never be a winning one for the bigoted people who push it.


Noone is suggesting the liberals are hypocrital because they are intolerant of prejudiced people. We are calling you liars, because everybody on the planet Earth is prejudicial in their own way. Many times these prejudices are forged by years of experience. I think everyone has that thought in their life that they would like to go back to when they were 18 or 21 and do it all over again knowing full well what they know now. They would be faced with the same situations and scenarios and act differently on instict based upon things they have learned throughout their life

Mainly because liberals feel their bigotry is good bigotry.

I completely agree with you 2F. People who don't admit they are prejudice either A) don't know what it means or B) are liars

Now that was funny. +1. But I don't believe your statement. I've spent a lot of time reading your posts ( and blog ) and I really don't think you have any 'hate' in you. Or perhaps we just define the word differently. I try to eliminate 'hate' from my life. Sometimes it's hard, but it's always valiant.
Youuuuuu MIGHT be a 'rascal' if.......(nevermind ;-)...2F

Thank you for the kind words. You are correct, I am not really a hater, certainly not of people. But a casino corporation that screws players, both AP and non-AP alike....honestly hate isn't really too strong of a word for me. I wouldn't mind one bit seeing the Evil Empire end up being broken apart and parts sold off to competitors than may or may not offer something a little better. Wouldn't mind one bit. :)

And this scenario is actually a possibility as the current bankruptcy proceeds. The empire tried to break off and hide certain 'good' assets and there is the possibility that tactic may not be allowed or be legal.

Everyone can be a racist because of some event or series of events because everyone who lives long enough experiences them, but some choose not too.

Every great person, has experienced discrimination. Great people rejected it as best they could.*** They certainly don't say, well too bad.

(***sometimes if only in comparison to those around them at the time, but I believe that counts if you're the outlier in your time period)

Anyway, no matter how you grew up or what you were taught, you should aim to teach your children a little better values. If you should do something else, I don't know why, that's for sure. Don't pass along the same crap at least.

That's not what I am getting at rx. I don't agree with racism, but I believe some stuff that is classified as racism truly isn't. For instance, i work at a car dealership, and I work with this African American gentleman, who I am great friends with outside of work BTW. I have fights with him because every time a customer doesn't like him, he claims it was because he is black. I tell him customers get mad at me and other people all the time, and it isn't because I am white and this person is Hispanic and what not. Different people have different personalities and different motivating factors and different things that speak to them. You have to identify them and work with/around them There are those that don't like him because he is black, and I don't like doing business with those guys, but for every 10 people that don't like him, the number that don't like him because he is black is between 0 and 1. A lot of my co-workers don't like working with Indians because of their reputation for being cheap. I personally like it, as many of them are my most loyal customers. They will make you work for their business but they will be loyal. Furthermore, when they bring other people with them it is a clear indication to me that they are buying or at least intending to buy. Different cultures come from different lands with different value systems. You can't treat everybody the same because most people won't respond to your particular value system. I have to be able to utilize my knowledge of many different cultures to move more product, and yes, I use stereotypes and prejudices to do so, and it works because knowledge is power in those instances. Some sales people, and I keep using Indians, and I apologize don't know how to handle the objection that they don't want to pay interest despite special financing on the car they want being 2.9% at the term they want. We offer them a buydown rate which offers them to pay the interest up front and make it look like on paper that they have a zero interest loan, nevermind that this practice puts them further in a negative equity position at the start.

--Flags

--Statues

--Schools

All have been attacked so far...we still aren't talking about racism and how to reduce it. You'll never stop it, but we can do better.

A racist terrorist killed nine people.

Once we've successfully eradicated all traces of the battle flag and all Confederate heroes (many also American heroes, but who cares) maybe we'll actually talk about racism.

Same way it's always been, keep the slaves fighting amongst themselves so the don't worry about what the master is doing. Works every time.
