“I'm tired of this story, this man was low hanging fruit and everyone is cool hopping on the outrage bandwagon because it's such a blatant example. Dude's been saying and doing things like this for years but now it's a big deal, not then.

The hypocrisy is astounding. The true nature and danger of today's racism is that it's quiet, it's nurtured by silence and ignorance and neglect. I want to see a complete nationwide uproar the next time racial comments are made and it doesn't involve famous people. Like that teacher in Ohio who told his student that we don't need another black president. That registered ONE article and as far as I saw didn't make any major news”

“I'm a democrat, quite liberal, but seriously if you're going to donate money you should probably read where it's going...but hey my friend in Nigeria could use a loan if you want to send me some and I'll get it to him...”

maninthebooth on Feb 8, 2014 at 11:30:45

“If you are "a democrat, quite liberal", then why do you blame the victim instead of the perpetrator of the fraudulent political ad? Aren't doctors quite busy? Aren't senior citizens vulnerable to this kind of deception that preys on the good citizenship of Americans? And how many Democratic supporters will never give another penny to
their Party because of this bad experience?

The Republicans know that most people, like you and me, will read the small print. They also know that some people aren't as careful as they should be. That is why deception exists.

But, one would think that a major American political Party would be more trustworthy than Nigerian fraud factories. And that's not at all funny, as you suggest. It's very sad.”

“Your first sentence is spot on and I totally agree. I also agree that white men and women are the subject of prejudice on many occasions, which I know because I am a white man and I grew up on the South Side of Chicago.

I can't argue with your personal statement that in your experience the most prejudiced people you have met are not white, I'll validate that because it's what you've experienced. But you are 1 person in a country of 300+ million, and history along with statistics do not bear your comment out. Just because it's snowing where you live doesn't mean global climate change isn't happening...see where I'm going with that?”

Unpartisan on Jan 27, 2014 at 16:12:44

“No it is definitely a personal experience, and I have found it is different in different parts of the country. I find racial tensions worse in the north east and mid west than in the south east. I don't know if that is a result of the history of the south east and the segregation, racism, and prejudice being in the open and dealt with, or not. But again it is my observation.

I do draw a big line between out and out racism, and prejudices and stereo types. Racism is believing your race is superior to all others, or that another race is inferior to all others (my definition, not Webster's). I find more open minds among white men of my generation (born 1976) than black men. Again it isn't racism, just an expectation (prejudice) based on race. After someone knows me, that expectation completely disappears for the individual, but the prejudices remain for others.

I know 0 black people that are racists. I have ran across a few white racists, people that actually think that other races are inferior. If you read some of Lincoln's Presidential Primary speeches he was an out and out racist, which was the norm of the time. For racism, there are more white racists than any other race. But for prejudice and stereo typing, it is a much closer match among all other races.”

“Very much agree, EXCEPT, we can't allow people to operate as though the past never happened. Mrs. Palin wants to extol on the merits of the founding fathers of this nation, but they were slave owners. They said black men only counted as 3/5s of a person. So do we celebrate them and just gloss over that? Or do we accept the truth, that they were imperfect beings, trying to increase their rights but they made a lot of mistakes along the way that we should try to learn from and not repeat. It's really a hard question and probably an exercise in futility because both sides want their voices heard but polar opposites in this matter have a hard time coming together. Good comment!”

“So the part where you were bullied by racist people because your mother was dating a Cuban man kind of makes my point. Mrs. Palin would say that you are playing the race card, so your argument doesn't count. I on the other hand think you have had a difficult upbringing and whatever gains you have made in life are a testament to your hard work and your mother. Second class citizen does not just denote race, people in poor and rural areas suffer from political and economic neglect simply because you offer less votes than the urban areas so politicians who make those decisions don't really care about you.”

“I'm glad that you have black friends, that in no way has any bearing on what I'm saying except to maybe make you feel more secure? That's like a politician coming out against same-sex equality, but it's ok because he/she has friends that are gay.

I have just as much freedom as anyone, in fact more, because I am a white man. I am at the top of the food chain in this country because of the way power and wealth are dispersed and concentrated. I don't have the background or experiences to tell someone to stop playing the race card because I have never been discriminated against because of my skin color and neither has Mrs. Palin. That was my point. Tell your black friends I say hi.”

We have all been discriminated against one time or another even us white guys and even you.Have you ever been turned down for a job even though you were more quilified than the person they hired?I have many times but that is life and it go's on.I am sure Palin has been discriminated against because of her gender right wrong or indifferent that is the way of life here but it was getting better.We can only hope and pray it does again.”

“I'm a white man born in the 80s, clearly I have no idea what it's like to be treated as anything but a 1st class citizen. My comment in no way was a declaration that I was being treated as such, but rather directed at Mrs. Palin because she enjoys a privilege that the people she is calling out do not, and telling someone not to stand up to an injustice they feel or experience when her frame of reference is absent from that is, much like Mrs. Palin, ignorant.

Also, if you think that all we suffer from now is just a mild case of racism, you must not be paying attention.”

“Why would you not be allowed to hit them back if they hit you first? Also, many people, regardless of race/ethnicity are picked on by members of their peer or age group. What am I discussing is more of a systemic problem ie a young white man walking down the street is less likely to be a person of suspicion than a young black/hispanic man. I do think it is terrible that you were subjected to physical and verbal abuse at the hands of anyone at all, but do you feel that they were targeting you because of your race or for a different reason? Just because you are in the minority percentage-wise in a specific area does not make you a minority. I grew up on the South Side of Chicago, meaning I was one of the few white kids in my neighborhood. But that didn't make me a minority. I'm positive I still enjoyed the benefits of that white privilege, ESPECIALLY because I was one of the few white people in that neighborhood and that made me stand out. While a majority of the power rests in the hands of predominantly white men, they will continue to elevate issues and agendas that serve their interests. Not all of them are nefarious in nature, but there are some who certainly don't wish to see their influence usurped by men and women of a different ethnic persuasion.”

Josh Kingston on Jan 23, 2014 at 18:38:18

“In relation to other areas of your post. I am curious. What are the white privileges from your perspective? People talk about "white males being in power" etc. At which point does the power held by the white upper class male lose the potential to make middle/lower class males/whites able to be punished for it by middle class minority members? When does the behavior dubbed "acceptable for this reason" become an irrational response on the part of those exhibiting it? Also, you have suggested, "they will continue to elevate issues and agendas that serve their interests". Certainly. However, at which point do we admit that these mannerisms/behaviors are an aspect of human behavior rather than of the particular group in question? Would we find black females exhibiting different behavior if they were the majority and in power? The more I hear about many of these things, the more it seems as if an unfortunate number of people are simply ignorant as to the mechanisms etc. of human behavior.”

Josh Kingston on Jan 23, 2014 at 18:23:11

“It is difficult to determine which variable was primary and those that would be considered secondary in the midst of some interaction(s). For instance, a white girl was not picking on me for being white. However, it is difficult to determine whether it was based on my disabilities, being male, or something else. One of the black girls that always picked on or hit me was found referencing my presence as "white boy" (usually in anger/frustration etc.). One of the events that stuck in my memory was when we were standing outside waiting for the bus and her little brother (half my age) started picking on me. A five year old boy decided it was okay to punch me in the balls repetitively. When I tried to stop him from doing so his older sister would hit me in the head and tell me that her little brother could hit me in the balls if he wanted to. In relation to "why I would not be allowed to hit them back", I was punished for doing so. The children hitting me were not punished for doing so. However, when the teacher saw me hit them back I was sent to the office. Some of it was the fact that I was not "sneaky" about it. What I never quite understood is why their behavior was not attended to.”

“You don't have to be a specific race or gender to be treated like a second class citizen. I have found myself the victim of prejudice and bigotry being the only white male on a team in my job, living in the projects for a short period of time, etc. You deal with it, and when you don't back down people accept you for who you are. Having been in long term engagements and living with those of another race, It is my observation that the most prejudiced and bigoted people in America are not white. Note I didn't say racist, just prejudiced.

If you knew anything about MLK you would know that he wanted race to not be an issue at all. Playing the race card is the exact opposite of his dream. Certain parts of the black community has a hard time moving beyond race and wants to blame that for everything. That is keeping racism alive more than anything else. Don't use race as an excuse for anything. Yes there are racists in the world of all shapes and colors. They are a very small minority. We all have prejudices, and an open allows us to realize that categorizing people by race/sex and then setting expectations based on that categorizing is just ignorant. The prejudices and stereo types will continue to exist, that is human nature, it is not racism.”

They keep clinging to this deficit-reduction will save the economy nonsense, and no one in the real world actually believes that's a working economic principle. While this budget doesn't sound like the worst thing in the world, it definitely is lacking a lot of things that Democrats could have pushed for, at the very least unemployment benefits. Or maybe we want to celebrate unemployment dropping to 7% by cutting benefits so people lose their homes and costing more people their jobs”
