I’ve seen a
lot of petty people on this site lately and the race baiting has multiplied.
Some may imply it’s mostly Conservatives or Liberals; quite frankly it’s both.
Inane questions like “What if a White person said this?” It seems people really
don’t have anything better to do; stirring the pot and racial bigotry must be
some people goal on here. If you purposely search for stories to prove how most
of a certain group is this or that; you’re pretty pathetic. If you purposely
imply a whole group of people is a certain way, because of a comment made by
one individual; you have no logic.





Just some of
the comments that have amused me on here; some people really do have a group
think mentality.





“Blacks are
really losing my support.”





“Most White
Southerners and Conservatives are bigots.”





“I wish for
the day when Blacks will become superior like Asians.”



“Most
Mexicans are illegals.”



Even the
party toting remarks are disturbing.





“Most Libs
are looking for entitlements, and are on welfare.”



“Most
Conservatives are racist bigots and heartless.”





The funny
thing is; I have yet to meet a person who is Conservative on every single issue
or Liberal on every single issue. This is the problem with group think; I’m
sure this post will fall on death ears for some.

    I have been noticing this as well. And if you reply with the fact that you think it is wrong, no matter the color of who said it, they tell you, you are missing the point.

    I don't think people in general are this petty, but I do think the Sodahead, or maybe the anonymity of the internet seems to bring out the worst in some people.

    But wait, theres another possibility; Because in the 19th century the Democrats who were Conservative and were supporters of Slavery,its the Democrats today who cause people to be ignorant and racist today especially in the South because they dont want any voters in the North anyway!?.LMAO.

    So when having to make a choice between American Africans and Hispanics you choosing Hispanic is the better option for you, thinking that will cover you up from being what you are.Well as far as I am concerned,you failed.

    You sound so race obsessed yourself that you're barely coherent.

    Why wasn't Martin defending himself when when he was attacking Zimmerman? Because he was too busy attacking Zimmerman obviously. Are you logic impaired somehow? How do you know Zimmerman was stalking Martin? Do you have all the facts of the case? You're the only one blowing your cover on your ignorance and bias.

    The South was virtually a Republican free zone throughout the Jim Crow era. The only BS is yours.

    Today's Democrats run on race baiting, affirmative action and reparations to play to minorities and guilty white liberals. Democrats are and have always been the only politicians that exploit race for political gain.

    The Democrats in the 19th century were populists who mixed popular eugenicist theories in with their traditional customs. Their ideas were a major deviation from the ideals of individual liberty that founded this nation. They had nothing to do with Conservatism.

    Typical comment reaction of a racist responding to the exposure of his racist personality when confronted by anti racist and civil rights advocates and the rest of your comments are tuned to that source.You have to live with yourself not me.Much luck.

    Unfortunately, many of the partisans on SH are guilty of race baiting on both sides. I am offended when someone assumes because I am a political conservative that I must also be a racist. I have experienced this from time to time since the late 1960s. It is always wrong, but there seems to be no way to convince those who are stirred by liberal retoric for their own purposes. It's sad, because it keeps us all from coming together to work towards solutions to our nations problems.

    Blacks have a long history here and in African nations. What many people fail to realize is blacks also had black slaves in their part of the world. They even sold them to those who came over to our country and sold them to white people here.

    Since then white people have been hating colors and have been passing it down to future generations. Makes me sick knowing these people actually believe blacks do not deserve the same respect as whites.

    That being said we also have blacks who still feel we owe them for the time slavery and segregation was around and some even feel they owed financial compensation. This in no way is a slam to the blacks but merely the truth.

    The time has past and is gone now we must forge new ground and unite as MLK wanted to show that we can be together in arms as brothers and sisters. Truly MLK was a light that was taken too soon.

    Point of this is we have a lot of growing up to do.

    SAMORY TOURE
    King of the Sudan (1830-1900)

    The ascendance of Samory Toure began when his native Bissandugu was attacked and his mother taken captive. After a persuasive appeal, Samory was allowed to take her place, but later escaped and joined the army of King Bitike Souane of Torona. Following a quick rise through the ranks of Bitike's army, Samory returned to Bissandugu where he was soon installed as king and defied French exploits in Africa by launching a conquest to unify West Africa into a single state. During the eigthteen year conflict with France, Samory continully frustrated the Europeans with his military strategy and tactics. This astute millitary prowess brought him respect world wide.

    DAHIA-AL KAHINA
    QUEEN KAHINA

    She fought against the Arab incursion in North Africa where under her leadership Africans fought back fiercely and drove the Arab army northward into Tripolitania. Queen Kahina was of the Hebrew faith and she never abandoned her religion. Her opposition to the Arab incursion was purely nationalistic, since she favored neither Christians nor Moslems. Her death in 705 A.D by Hassen-ben-Numam ended one of the most violet attempts to save Africa for the Africans. She prevented Islam's southward spread into the Western Sudan.

After her death the Arabs began to change their strategy in advancing their faith and their power in Africa. The resistance to the southward spread of Islam was so great in some areas that some of the wives of African kings committed suicide to avoid falling into the hands of the Berbers and Arabs who showed no mercy to the people who would not be converted to Islam.

    NEHANDA
    MBUYA(Grandmother) OF ZIMBABWE

    When the English invaded Zimbabwe in 1896 and began confiscating land and cattle, Nehanda and other leaders declared war. Nehanda also displayed remarkable leadership and organizational skills at a young age. Though dead for nearly a hundred years, Nehanda remains what she was when alive, the single most important person in the modern history of Zimbabwe. She is still referred to as Mbuya (Grandmother) Nehanda by Zimbabwean patriots.

    NZINGHA
    AMAZON QUEEN OF MATAMBA WEST AFRICA (1582-1663)
    A very good military leader who waged war against the slave-hunting Europeans. This war lasted for more than thirty years. Nzingha was of Angoloan descent and is known as a symbol of inspiration for people everywhere. Queen Nzingha is also known by some as Jinga by others as Ginga. She was a member of the ethnic Jagas a militant group that formed a human shield against the Portuguese slave traders. As a visionary political leader, competent, and self sacrificing she was completely devoted to the resistance movement. She formed alliances with other foreign powers pitting them against one another to free Angola of European influence. She possessed both masculine hardness and feminine charm and used them both depending on the situation. She even used religion as a political tool when it suited her. Her death on December 17, 1663 helped open the door for the massive Portuguese slave trade. Yet her struggle helped awaken others that followed her and forced them to mount offensives against the invaders. These include Madame Tinubu of Nigeria; Nandi, the mother of the great Zulu warrior Chaka; Kaipkire of the Herero people of South West Africa; and the female army that followed the Dahomian King, Behanzin Bowelle.

    This goes on and on; Black Africans had to fight against the Arabs as well. In the old world, before the invasion of the Middle East and Europe; Africans had peasants, just like everyone else. They had their monarchies and a class system. In this class system; just like in other kingdoms on other continents, color didn't come into play until the New World. The Arabs made it about religious discrimination as the Europeans made it racial.

    During the Egyptian, Roman and Greek era; race was never an issue. That was according to the Old World doctrine. In the New World, it went from class to race. Now if you were Black, you were considered lower class by birth. The Western world also brought in Eugenics and pseudo Science/Religion. The Arabs in Swahili as well; they overran the natives, forced them to convert, then laid claim to their land. In addition to trying to claim the natives works of art as their and slavery according to color not class.

    But the past and is in the past and we have to come together in order to survive the future.

    I can't explain it. If you look at the '50, it seems like race relations have come a long way. There is no race doubt issues still exist today, as this site shows. But I've lived in Maryland, Florida, Texas, and California. NO DOUBT all of those states had racists, especially Texas. But in my workplace and the places I go blacks and whites seem to get along.

    There is the same relationships that exists with other groups, Liberal vs Conservative, Democrats vs Republicans and maybe other groups As the question, states people seem to generalize about groups of people far too much. We are all people and there are good and bad people, and some of those that may be considered as bad, it maybe no fault of their own. Lots of people have problems, and they may not air them in public. People coming together, giving,caring, sharing and compassion seems to me a good place to start. Getting there seems to be the the elusive detail

    It's election season, for one thing. Also, Hegel pretty much calls for this type thing to occur, as "change" can only come from "chaos" or crisis, in his opinion. Also consider the possibility of martial law if they can gin up enough hatred to start an actual race war, now that neo-nazis are marching around again. How many hundreds of millions of 40 mm ammo did DHS just order? 1.25 rounds for each man, woman and child in "America"?

    It's not just race either I think there are almost as many Muslim Bashing sites as race bashing sites.
    A lot of it is the media they are stirring people up to get ratings. But we cannot put all the blame on them because if people did not watch the hatemongering thier ratings would fall and they would be forced to move on to something else.
