or just an older man who's been fighting his entire life and not getting anywhere? bitterness of failure is not racism imho.
He has made directly racist statements and supports affirmative action which is the nothing more than the practice of making a decision based on race.
Faolan has never been to the South, or met black people from there.
You obviously didn't read my post. I stated the the Church has at least historically been an intrical part of the Black community which is a direct implication that Blacks very much do go to church, and in numbers that are higher in proportion to that of whites. Also, I've lived 22 years in the south, mostly in Tallahassee but also in smaller towns as well and I can tell you over the last ten years Black culture has pretty much been homogenized by the mainstream media, but so has the rest of the nation for the most part.
Also, watching that video was just painful. I feel like a part of me has been raped. I'm so lucky I do not own a TV.
no s***? i had no idea.
you mean like Nation of Islam? Or the 5%ers? or what exactly are you talking about and can I get some of that.
Nation of Islam is a such a small group in the reality of schemes and are generally considered to be a bunch of fringe looneys. They only get a lot of airtime because they are so vocal.
I have no sense of "white guilt" because I don't think I should have to apologize for something that even my ancestors were not a part of. In fact, being of Irish origin, my people know what it is like to be dominated and enslaved by another culture and even still today my motherland remains occupied by the Crown. These people are fretting and angry over things that are history. It would be best they learn to forgive as their own Church teaches, but that seems to be asking too much.
If every culture were to be punished and weighed down by the transgressions of their forefathers, societies would never advance. It would simple be a constant cycle of pain and misery for everyone. There comes a time where we have to learn to let it go.
