“Yes, but we have not reached the point of no child left behind,. Recent violent attacks by youths on gays, lesbians, Blacks, Hispanics and other groups they have learned to hate reminds us that there is still a crop of haters being groomed to stand with old bigots. The hope is that young man represents the majority of our young people.”

“If you can convince the lowest white man that he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll even empty his pockets for you.” - Lyndon Johnson

Doesn't seem like too much has changed since the 1960's, huh?”

“The only value judgment you can make is with your own money. Otherwise you sound like you are minding someone else's business. I'm surprised no one taught you that. You have a pleasant day.”

“You are totally wrong. Value judgements can be made about about just about anything where judgement is exercised. If someone paid $1000 for a baloney sand which, I could make a value judgement that the purchase was unwise.”

“I was always taught if I worked for my money, I could buy whatever I damn well please. Doesn't matter if you or anyone else can make sense of it.”

“Lord wakeup, you had to be taught that. Most of us take it for granted. Off course one can buy what ever he wants with the money he earned. However that does not preclude me from making a value judgement whether you agree or not.”

“It happens all the time. Not just at Barney's. Try being black anywhere USA and use your credit card. Anytime some sales clerk under 20 thinks you shouldn't be able to purchase whatever they can't afford be prepared to prove who you are to basically a child. I have had this very thing happen too many times to count. Doesn't stop in stores either, be prepared to prove your car is your own, whenever some officer wonders why you have a luxury car and he doesn't.

This is an every day reality when you are of color in America.”
