Though I guess even if it's just a remnant or "the loud minority", it IS easier to turn into sensational news, that's how it works.

She was a badass. Frankly in line with Muhammad's taste for strong, independent women.

CPAC had numerous displays of outright racism this year, this video is only but one example.

'Panda porn' puts giant panda in mood to mate

Quote:
Call it panda porn.

Researchers at Chinaís breeding center for giant pandas were concerned over the way Ke Lin repeatedly rebuffed her male companion, Yong Yong, every time he tried to mate.

You know...there is a fundimental problem with their thinking. They are looking for groups and regions. They forgot something. We are Americans. All of us in the 50 states and the territories. We aren't "Something hyphen Americans", We are American, period.

That is what matters really.

(I say, if you want to get regional, go for the biggest region you got...though in most respects that is Nationalism...but for politics, you sort of want nationalism over regionalism and racism, as nationalism keeps the country together).

That and they won't go for the larger scale and say We are Human, cause we still got social-policial, economic, and cultural problems with other countries. Plus language barriers far greater than the accent difference between Boston and Altanta.

Plus you never know when the Klingons and Vulcans will protest that they aren't human.

And I thought this was an isolated incident; it's not that I don't know that racism was alive and well, but I think something to this extreme wouldn't really be seen much, if at all. (People don't usually say that they are okay with slavery or segregation in public, even though they might be thinking about it.)

Alas, if this is the new normal, I don't know what to say anymore...

Move the pro-slave owners to Missisippi and wall off that area.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

And let them have their asses handed back to them again. And this time, feign defeat and when pushed back North, take over and annex Canada, then drive them all the way down to Mexico then completely eliminate them.

There! You have a complete domination of the American continent!

Get the Texans to help you take that. Fight cowboys with cowboys, outlaws with outlaws.

Well back then it was 50% of the territory...1% of the population. However a larger percentage has moved in since then.

The Old South went back to their old ways after Reconstruction for the most part. They didn't have "slaves" anymore, but they got a lot of people that were essentially indentured servants backlash against the Northern supported black officials didn't help the matter either. There were states in the south that had some fine black politicians before the Old South raised its head again and stated the various voter blocks, poll taxes, and heavily enforced segrigation.

It isn't all that surprising if you watch old Hollywood and others films from the 30s and if you see black people at all in a modern setting, they will be servants, or possibly just poor in shanty like areas of town. Usually happy poor if shown that way. The happy go lucky types aways singing and dancing. Swing usually. You'd rarely see any blacks in films set in a northern modern setting (New York) save maybe as a bell hop or driver. You might see some in a Western setting, but that was usually reserved for Chinese or Mexicans instead.

Segregation lasted until it was abandoned in the military as a result of World War II. After that it took time and a crapton of effort to get the idea down to the rest of the country. And it seems it either didn't work entirely, or the whites in some of the Southern state are starting to realize they are the minority in the state and losing the power they once had via segrigation and other laws.

Being poor states looking for someone to blame doesn't help either.

As for why there are Black Republicans. There are a lot of Baptist churches, thus a lot of religious black conservative families. That the Republicans in some regions have drawn in racists still doesn't mean they aren't conservatives. The other parties are generally considered a jole in most states outside of some small ones and California were we still think they are a joke, but run them anyway.

That's a nice story. And it was good for the officer to not charged the parents since it was a real emergency.
