“Why am I reminded of “moderate” Muslims failing to condemn the terrorists of their own religion?”

I remember another Freeper posting that the Muslim culture kept any Muslim from being truly “moderate”...as long as they financially supported terrorist charities and violent mullahs and refused to speak out against their most radical, murderous elements, they were simply support units for terrorists.

A candid mind does perceive a pattern.

In the US military, only 10% of personnel have jobs involving actual fighting. The other 90% are occupied with providing food, shelter, transport, supply, training, pay, etc for the trigger-pullers. Yet if somebody tried talking to you about making a distinction that the 90% were "moderate" military while the trigger-pullers were "extremist" military, you would probably look at him like he's crazy or stupid.

Don't assume that basic attitudes were different before. It was probably just that some people felt it unwise to let people who were not of their group know how they really felt.

I have gradually come to understand that. During Rev Wright I spoke about this with my one of my son's closest friends (black) who he's known since grade school and he educated me. Afterwards he said he had a choice at some point..and he decided to leave the "hood" behind..but fully understood how seductive and easy and simple it would have been to stay. He's confused too which is no consolation- but it's illustrative.

Do they not undertsand that they are forcing people such as myself, who worked long and hard to not be racist, to respond to any group of blacks with defensive gunfire at the slightest provocation?

Does the black race in America really want to be eradicted as vermin?

They control their own destiny. They can either behave like civilized human beings and be accepted into society, or they can behave like rabid animals running in packs and be eliminated.

So far most of them have chosen to act like animals.

Thanks for the book info.

I’m struck again by the CHOICE we make to be American- or make NOT to be.

Whatever our family origins it has always taken a few generations for “tribes” to become assimilated into the glorious mix that is distinctly AMERICAN. “Diversity” was a part of us whereas now it’s the thing to be valued above us, above being American. Making that choice is our undoing- the thread that binds us is unraveling into separateness. I’m homesick.

This is the SECOND article in a couple days about Blacks going Tribal and beating or killing a White Person with the 'This Is For Trayvon' bulls**t.

So ... where the (blank) is Eric 'My People' Holder and his DOJ civil rights investigation? Where are the Rev's Al and Jesse and their protests for 'justice'? And where the flock is OBAMA! Would 'his son' look like Matthew Owens?

Dammit to hell. If these ghetto rats want a Race War then bring it on homeboy, enough is enough. Just keep in mind who has most of the firearms and knows how to properly aim them -- ammo is a precious thing in a firefight. And that when push comes to shove 'your homies' in DC won't be there to protect you.

Bullet Proof you ain't.

I'm going to guess that the little darlings playing basketball were cursing and screaming at each other at the top of their lungs, and probably engaging in underage drinking, and felt disrespected when the guy asked them to tone it down.

Could these kids be the result of the Rev Wright type Churches? I mean they dance and lift their hands to the Lord on Sunday, then go out of the Church to vote for infanticide, homosexual agenda,liberal Supreme Court etc.

Maybe something is missing? Just saying

I hear you.
My maternal grandmother was from an active abolitionist family. Still have her copy of UNCLE TOM.

My parents worked hard to make sure we were not prejudice. Dad had worked on research for a case against the Klan when he clerked in the federal system and they never forgot.
He was the lawyer in town that people of color contacted when they wanted legal representation, often going to their homes so they weren't seen going into a lawyers office.

Our small above ground pool was opened when the city pool refused to allow kids to swim while visiting our community.

When BO was elected we were discussing him being “the first black president” and dad said he would also be the last. Not because of the American people, but because of Obama’s basic foundation. His presidency will humiliate so many when he is exposed that any progress our families have made toward equality and acceptance will be destroyed.

Few months back, BO had done something yet again, could hear dad yelling from the other side of the house. Went to see if he was alright...out of his mouth...through his tears came in a stuttering voice: “THAT D...Ni....!” Never heard it before, never thought I'd hear it from my father's mouth.

I grieve for my father, I grieve for families who have striven to improve race relationship. I grieve for America.

Good to see you HM:)

The loss for your family and for so many others of all colors is poignant- the undoing of decades of evil bigotry and hatred was slow but steady. It would appear there were always some on both sides that never really wanted the fear and hate to dissipate. The kkk types and the black panther types have been hovering in the background, ready to pounce.

If I may, I wish to concur in the angst you have expressed. My father was also one who worked hard to help the black community. He was a teacher and principal in a Chicago high school on the south side, rough area. (BTW, despite his claims to the contrary, Obama absolutely does not “feel” like a south-sider to me, but I digress). Dad had worked on a two-tier advanced studies program that allowed strong students to excel. These students were creating a steady stream of successful undergraduate and graduate students for nearby colleges and universities. The dream was coming true for these people, escape from the ghetto, escape from poverty, escape from the spiral-down culture of the hood.

Do you know who stopped it all? The parents of the kids who didn’t make it into the advanced study classes. Their kids were not becoming doctors and lawyers like the smart kids, so it just wasn’t fair. Enter Jesse Jackson. Yes, my dad had a personal run-in with Jesse himself. In a face to face meeting with him, my dad was told he was the wrong color to be principal of a black school. With the support of the elder Mayor Daley, Jesse had my dad removed from his principalship and sent downtown to do some crappy budget work for the rest of his career. Dad was a good-tempered man, but after that a broken man, too, with ulcers and no clear vision of why he spent his life on such a good mission, only to be deep-sixed by, well, what do you call people who do such things?

My dad also predicted a race war, based on his in-person observations. Contrary to popular belief, the resentment is not universal, but where it exists it is a deep and focused rage, a spirit of revenge. He spoke of one encounter where a woman told him “you had us in slavery for hundreds of years and we’re going to have you in slavery for hundreds of years.” This is the rage that JJ and the other race-baiters know is there, that provides them with their base of power, prestige and wealth. *They* are the new plantation owners, along with their white enablers. Would to God that God would send these people a new Moses to set them free from the spiritual darkness that holds them. It is the only way out. A true race war, once it starts in earnest, will never end.

I said at the beginning of the Martin/Zimmerman episode that the Martin family needed council from a good Reverend. Unfortunately they got Al and Jesse with a Rev Wright attitude.

No, plain black for me. It’s...intimating. Too big, of course, for a carry weapon. I figure I’ll use the LCP to keep their heads down while I get the real gun. I’m not really much a shooter, but I have a friend who shoots competitive .45. He frequently shoots the XDm over any of his very expensive 1911s. Mine was right at $600 at a gun show. I shamelessly got a couple of vendors competing with other.

Excellent quote. That is wisodom, no doubt.

Considering my arms, I can say that I feel very able to defend myself and my loved ones if need be. I know I said that I am fearful of black people at this time, but I have to qualify that statement. I’m not afraid of all of them. I’d say it’s a specific age range of males, and I’ll estimate it @ 15-45.

I list 15 because back in new orleans I saw three black yutes of this approximate age ride by a house on their bikes and emptied three pistols into the broad side of a home that contained two children and a baby. The yutes were hitting on one of the female children there, and they were told to leave by an adult. They came back and did their bike by, which I witnessed from a school roof across the street on which I was working. No one was hurt in this cowardly attack, thank God.

Black children of the age of 15 are a deadly serious threat.

But what I am most fearful of in this situation is not the potential race war we now face, but the reaction of our psychotic federal government once it starts and once citizens are then forced to defend themselves from attack.

I definitely believe that communist radicals in our federal government, including Hussein Obama and Eric the Red, are seeking to create a bottom up-top down-inside out revolutionary scenario.

The sentence in italics above is from the article(I put the crucial part in bold for you). Maybe your glasses need to be updated to a new prescription?

He's right, that's what you are. Yes, you pointed out an error, which is an understandable error considering that two versions of the same article exist, one lacking any reference to race. Then you made the bolded smart ass comment to boot. That smart ass comment not only assumes the target of it wears glasses, but that they are also out of date. That is why you accurately got called a smart ass.

...when Obama is voted out of office in November. That’s my prediction... they just want a reason to riot.

Even if he is voted back in (between fraud and Mitt, a possibility) the celebratory rioting because his reelection will be seen as some sort of 'mandate' to suppress others, could outstrip the voted out riots. I doubt many who cower from the possibility of violence have considered that it may well come, either way.

It is going to get worse, unless/until the black community says 'enough!'

I don't hate anyone. But I will dispassionately use lethal force against anyone who is trying to cause me or mine serious bodily harm or death.

It is sad it may come to that, but I'm not going to be a victim. I have been through this during race riots in High School, I have seen this pattern of behaviour before, and it is one of people who think there will be no consequences for their actions.

Holder, the DOJ, the media have fostered this impression on the miscreants in this case, and before the phase passes where some people think they are protected in their misdeeds, some people are going to die as a result.
