So you believe Obama doesn't know Sharpton is organizing rallies today?

They shared a podium. Not proof of them doing anymore than that.

What happened to this couple is, if there were such a term, beyond evil. The people who did it are monsters. We would all give anything to insure that such things could somehow be made impossible.

Three things are on my mind. First, how badly do we want to stop it? If ever there were a task so big it would seem impossible, this would be it, unless we resorted to measures that would end this society as we know it. I don't have to go into detail. We would have to abandon nearly every principle we hold dear and for whom our fighting men and women have given their lives in several wars to protect, and certainly forget about laws at every level. Like the officer in Vietnam who said "We had to destroy the village in order to save it," if we were to win in that way, it would be a Pyrrhic victory, one not worth winning.

The second is that, while black-on-white crime is awful, it is no more awful than any other kind of crime in which someone loses his life.

Third, while we rightly condemn such acts, no one ever brings up the worst crime ever committed on this continent: the crime of treating millions of people worse than you'd treat pets or livestock, murdering and torturing them out of fear and guilt, hating them for no logical reason, destroying their families, selling husbands away from wives, children away from mothers. I'd say that all-in-all, the SS and their death camps had nothing on us.

But we never talk about that. Whenever anyone brings it up, someone yells "That's all in the past!" But we've never atoned for it spiritually. Some say we should pay money to black people. That would be worse than doing nothing, and it would do nothing to atone for our sins and would insult those to whom we'd give it -- and I daresay the great majority would never take it anyway.

There is a way, the only way:

I have read of instances where an American survivor of the Pearl Harbor attack meets a Japanese fighter pilot who took part in the raid, and a wondrous thing happens. Each man weeps and embraces one another, all evil thoughts, all bitterness, washed away. I have seen video of such meetings. You cannot watch one without being profoundly moved.

This kind of reconciliation has never happened between the descendants of the whites and blacks of the slave era, or even as short a time ago as the Depression or of the Civil Rights movement years, and the effects of what happened during those times continue to affect us all. There is no such thing as "in the past." I believe the way to get it started is to create a mass consciousness, where everyone is aware that such a reconciliation is underway. It would have to be extremely powerful, more powerful even than the patriotism which has bound us together in time of war or catastrophe. It would have to have sufficient staying power to last until everyone knew -- and I believe we would know when that time was, to the hour -- that we had let it all out, had rid ourselves of the huge, horrible cyst that infects this nation with continued racial hatred from both sides.

We have had shared consciousness in this society many times. The Lincoln assassination. The Kennedys. MLK. 9/11. To a lesser extent, Hands Across America, the Murrah Building, the Texas Tower shootings.


I have seen this one-on-one racial conciliation happen. It was in a video of George Wallace and, I think it was, Dionne Warwick. She was onstage and he was in his wheelchair, put there in 1968 by would-be assassin Arthur Bremer. Wallace, in constant pain from the shooting, embraced Warwick. It was an amazing scene. Wallace had become a born-again Christian and had recanted his former racist views.

That's a lie. The Civil Rights bill was passed because of a white republican, Everett Dirkson. A larger percentage of republicans voted for the bill than Democrats. Dr. King's father was a registered Republican, and Dr. King was not registered with any political party. Challenge me on this, please.

 

I don't think I've seen this many ignorant people gathered on one site before. Fascinating.

 

No.... Mildred....Its not a lie and I did not say Republicans. I hate to get off topic but some things need to be made clear.....

 

Liberals and moderates in both parties supported the Civil Rights laws just as conservatives in both parties opposed the reforms. However the Republicans nominated rightwing Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater who voted against the Civil Rights Act in 1964. Several southern states went Republican in the 1964 Presidential Election because of Goldwater. The Goldwater Campaign was part of a revival among conservatives that led to a movement in the 1970s.

Did any of you ever read that book? It was about a White male writer who darkened his skin and went to live in the Deep South as a Black man. I think it was written in 1960. I read it many years ago. Mr. Griffin was amazed at what life was like for Black men in the South ( probably wouldn't have been much different in other parts of the USA ). He never realized how much prejudice and hatred they faced until he walked a mile in their shoes. I beleive this is what President Obama is talking about. He is trying to convey how much different everyday life is for White vs. Black men. I don't think he is trying to fan the flames of racial strife. The name of the book is "Black like me" by John Howard Griffin.

Hahahaha BULLSHIT.

Robert Byrd, who Democrats kept reelecting to the Senate over and over, and was held in the highest esteem by all Democrats until his death, was a former member of the KKK who not only voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964, but conducted the longest filibuster in history to that time in an effort to stop it. And in 2000 he uttered the N-word on live TV and Democrats said NOTHING.

 

And Byrd wasn't the only Democrat to fight the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act.

 

Far more Democrats voted against them than Republicans.

 

The father of Al Gore was one of them. And you Democrats still nominated his son. So get off that high horse.

I don't see why Obama would check on Sharpton's calendar. I have enough common sense to know that Obama is kept busy by a room full of assistants and cabinet members. I have even more common sense to know that you're full of crap.

When in the world will some people learn that Democrats at that time were mainly Southerners, many of them racist, and that Republicans at that time would be considered communists by today's Tea Party? Have you not read the history of your own country? This is unbelievable.

LOL! So which party kept reelecting Robert Byrd? Fact is, almost all of the Democrats who voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964 remained Democrats in good standing for years and years and years. Yours is a dishonest meme promoted by a dishonest leftist media and called "history". You are a fool for believing everything they tell you, Lisa. Just like in the Trayvon case.

It was awful yes, but it's time for blacks to get over it. They need to emulate Japanese Americans after WW2.

Japanese Americans did a great job building back their own country with major help from America. Japanese were wrongly interned in this country for a short period of time, and like all minorities were unfairly treated. They were how ever not dragged from their native country and made into slaves. If after the civil war white people said "ok Lincoln freed the slaves, lets treat them with the dignity and respect we treat our fellow white citizens" I may agree with you, but for most blacks and whites it was business as usual without the slave ownership involved, It was really only until the 60's that laws were passed ending state and country discrimination. Of course passing Laws are great but you cannot pass a law that will change the bigots heart. I think as the older white people die off and younger progressive people come into play that will help black people "get over it". The President said a very wise thing, a statement that smart parents tell their children. You cannot know how a man thinks or acts until you put yourself in his shoes.

Japanese Americans were interned, not Japanese.

Blacks weren't slaves in 1964.

 

Get over it.

 

After WW2 the situation of Japanese Americans was every bit as bad as blacks.

 

They had everything taken from them.

 

They were hated.

 

But in twenty years they were the wealthiest group in the US.

 

And they did it without trillions in handouts.

 

Instead of whining about the black condition, why don't you look how they did it.

No holds barred chat

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach. 


  • By pmurT

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now. 



  • Hey kfools, did you lose your securtiy cert? On my browser it is saying your site is not secure?


  • Mine too. I'm looking into it.


  • Mine too. 


  • I thought it was my location.. 


  • Just gave to renew the security cert. No big deal I'll do it tonight


  • OK thanks

     



  • Happy Anniversary, America... on your Civil Union.


  • All lives matter.


  • Double post deleted.


  • By teacher

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me. 


  • By teacher

    Being offended does not make one correct. 


  • By teacher

    Some few days before the next election Mr. Fools is gonna pin my horse thread. it's gonna be horrible, I shall endevour every day to bring some some fresh. 

     

    I still own this cat box.

    "I'm coming to you for ask a quick favor."

    Just click the no holds barred to collapse it.

    diddle dee dee


  • By teacher

    Like Jesse Ventura said to all that would not take a chew in the movie "Predator." LF.org is a political debate forum. This chatbox just ups the opportunity to go at it. Ya'll have your political views, seems to me that ya'll should have thought these things out and be ready to battle. 


  • By teacher

    Is real time political debate a thing ya'll hide from? What do you morons do if you happen to run into some one with opposing political views on the street? 


  • By teacher

    I've never ran into anyone, in real life,  that said Obama lied. I run into folks that tell me Trump lies. I'm at work. I didn't bring it up. I don't reply, I'm representing a company. Not my place. 


  • By teacher

    Lookie there, all I have to do is get out and come back. Why is it that liberals, when they have a company man before them decide they that is the time they go off? Why would ya'll put a company man into that position? 


  • By teacher

    Chatbox is mine.
