Racism, bigotry of any type is alive and well in America.  And it isn't going away soon.  We have over 300 million diverse people.  When the Irish immigrated to the USA, they were segregated and subjected to bias by the Germans and English who came before them.  When the Italians arrived, they, too, were subjected to bias even by the Irish who experienced the same thing.  When the Poles arrived............   When the Hispanics arrived.......  When the Hungarians arrived..........When the Jews arrived.........And so goes our history.  Now these groups had one advantage.  THEY WERE WHITE.  The blacks who do not have the advantage of the color of their skin, had a much harder road to travel.  Have we conquered segregation of the races?  No!  Have we provided sufficient employment to our black youth?  No!  How many whites wouldn't think twice if their child came home with a black boyfriend or girlfriend?  And how many blacks would feel the same if their child came home with a white?  The group du jour to hate is now the Muslims followed by illegal Hispanics.  The reality is that racism and bigotry will be with us for many years if not forever.  The best we can do is insure that our laws protect everyone from bias in areas to which they have a right under law.  Housing, schooling, jobs, speech, etc.  For those who believe that education will eliminate bias, we've just had the shame of the UK fraternity racial chant and other instances at our schools of "Higher" education.

Really?  Your views are at the lowest 1%?  C'mon....Get real.

 

Give me Duck Dynasty any day and you get the real America.

 

Have at it.  Sad that you Cons embrace the lowest common denominator.  Like "rk" say's "lower expectations".

Well sure - considering that the Duck Douchbags are about a dozen steps below the Three Stooges - the appeal to conservatives and Fox viewers is obvious.

Listen to Dixon D. White - and compare it with the majority of rk9152's posts - and decide for yourselves which one of them sounds to you much more like the disingenuous character "Wormtongue" in Lord of the Rings.


Usually I lurk and read.

Wormtongue

That's scary accurate.

Thanks for the video and comments.


Cool avatar, Sneadhearn.


I found it on "strangecosmos" about ten or so years ago.

AP, "Wormtongue" is a good comparison for those who read or watched Lord of the Rings. Makes me chuckle a bit. You can draw your own conclusions as to which one of the two reminds me of Wormtongue.

 

Thanks for the video.
