I'm not a jerk. You are stereotyping Texans as racists. You are the jerk. I am open minded and realistic. I think there is a greater degree of prejudice in Texas, though less than the Deep South and more than in a place like California. Yes I'm extrapolating your race based on your comments that lead me to believe you are a black man. Only since you mention racial profiling and several other comments.
I am not a racist and rail against it whenever it crosses my path. I think it is more of a generational and socio-economic issue, with older and poorer, rural people being more racist. Like I said I voted for Obama. My first job out of college was working with gangs and starting Midnight Basketball in San Francisco and Long Beach.
You should check out my posts. I fight racism and anti-Semitism on this board almost daily. Because of that, I won't be lobbed into any stereotypical minority, racist comments about Texas. Like I said, if you want to experience racism, go to Mississippi or Alabama. Stereotypic beliefs are major tenants of racism and reverse racism. You show your true colors, no pun intended, by espousing these narrow minded, discriminatory beliefs. If you are pro-equality and against racism, you need to rise above your own inherent prejudices and not use the tenants of what you despise. Failure to do so, lessens the effectiveness of your message and will have a detrimental effect on your cause.
Moron?.. Who's the moron here?... Who taught the 'first' racist to be racist?... No, my friend,... It's a human characteristic that has been part of our nomenclature from the very beginning.
I get the feeling that you think you are as pure as the driven snow. Am I not right... You are the furthest from being pure and non-racist. You just have a better ability to control your racist feelings when the arise. We are all created equally with the "racist" card in our back pocket.
You're a moron. Slant refered to a political or motivational leaning. Give me a break. You are a small man without humor, as suspected. You must be some kind of lawyer or something, since you have to get the last word in. You can have the last word from this point on. You're a bore.
No, I wouldn't agree. There is not one person here that has any "meaning" in my life. This is anonymous banter, nothing more. Whether or not you accept that, it is the truth. The complete disappearance of any given poster would have zero affect on your life or mine. To some extent, we're all equally ephemeral. For all you know, I really am a big beautiful black woman! What do you really know but the electrons on a screen?
