IF YOU'RE WHITE YOU'RE RACIST?

Black Racism White Racism

If there was a white caucus for politicians to which a black politician could not officially belong, would that be racial discrimination? Yes!

If there was a black caucus for politicians to which a white politician could not officially belong, would that be racial discrimination? No!

Stacy Campfield, state representative R-Tennessee, applied for membership in the state’s house black caucus. Campfield asked for the membership to “assist” him in representing his black constituents. The caucus refused to approve his membership. Campfield, who is "white", says it’s because of the color of his skin.

Tennessee house black caucus chairman Johnny Shaw said he thinks Campfield has other motives as he denied a white man official membership in the black caucus. So what was that the 14th amendment said again? If you’re black you can discriminate, if your white fly a kite....that doesn’t sound quite right.

Double standards. I believe there is a degree of racism amongst all races. No race is excluded. I've met the best and worst of all races.
The nice Asian neighbor that will invite you in and the nasty one at the grocery store shoving you to get her stuff on the belt.
The nice black woman who always has a compliment and the nasty one that acts like welfare is her God given right.
The white person always willing to give a helping hand or the nasty one that doesn't have a kind word for anyone.

Everyone has had experiences that may or may not be defined as racist. Unfortunately, racism is in the eye of the beholder in today's world. The accuser gets to accuse in anyway he/she decides...only there is no such thing as "Black" racism. Oh really?

I can't say I've suffered racism, except in the case of the black professor, but I know lots about religious bigotry, it pervades Cranky Liberal. He does hate religion so. But than, HATE is the main component propelling his blog.

I hear you on that. I find it harder and harder to comment over there. You speak your mind and they all come out of the woodwork ready to attack. It's like they're all brainwashed. Like a cult almost.

I see no other way to describe it.
The only religion they hate is Christianity. And we know why they hate it so much don't we?
Aren't they like an organized religion or maybe more like the KKK?
