we are tired, we are fed up and we are not taking it anymore

I don't know who pulled YOUR string, but I for one feel exactly the same, but I'm white. How are we going to resolve this?

There were all kinds of images on this quilt, and NONE of them are offensive.

“If we could only go back and tell them lazy assed plantation owners, huh?”

Obviously those who whine about everything would rather be back in Africa where famine is wide-spread...as is diseases...and on any given day a gang may come in and rape you or chop your arms off cuz they feel like it. Oh...and nothing is FREE. Yup...all the complainers would rather be there and I’d rather they were still there as well.

The racial divide in this country is only going to get worse. It’s beyond the point of no return.

Dear children,

Some people believe that blacks can not be racist. This gives them free reign to spout the most racist tripe you can imagine. They excuse their racism by pointing to some other perceived racism. They do this to such an extent that they literally believe they are not being racist. They consider themselves to be assaulted on every side by white privilege.

Stay away from these black people. Race is all they think of from morning until night. When they read the paper they see racism. When they watch TV they see racism. When they buy gasoline they see racism. When they park their car in a parking lot they see racism. When they buy groceries they see racism. They are poisoned. You can not change them.

For some of you this may have been your first such experience. That is unfortunate but it’s better you learn now before you get out into the real world.

“I’m failing to see how a quilt can offend anyone.”

Oh I don’t know, I understand that “the Reverends” (That would be Jessie and Al) have threatened to sue Sears because all the washing machines they sell are white. Sears has countered that while that is true, it’s mitigated because inside the machines, all the agitators are black!

Back in the late 80’s there was another fine pos that was on the council or something (a fat guy), cannot recall him but he and JWP were on the same wavelength.

lord what an ugly harridan

we have a huge generation of black politicians projecting their own ignorance and self hatred on our country...largely

seriously her way of thinking is not the exception...it’s the rule

they say “I’m offened” and white folks...especially up north roll over paws up like a submissive dog

she is likely hateful from being left with too many babies by her string of sires and watching Django over and over

Black communities in America seem to gleefully elect thugs, idiots, racists and criminals to represent them, never caring what an negative representation of their communities these antisocials display to the rest of the nation.

Ain't that the sad truth!

I can recall a couple of notable examples. When Rep. Charles Diggs (D-Mich.), who represented a black district in Detroit, was forced out of Congress due to corruption charges that later sent him to prison, the voters replaced him with George Crockett, a hard-core Communist who had defended Communist Party leaders in the notorious Smith Act trial of 1949. And earlier, voters in a Harlem, NY district replaced the corrupt playboy Rep. Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. (D-Ny) with our dear friend Charlie Rangel.

I saw it. But, it only takes the color “black” to set off racist tripe. I think this lady watched that episode of South Park where Chef got pissed off about the Town Flag....
(black stick figures of “hangman”.) Screw her. I’d listen to her and then go on and ask to see what the School Lunch menu is if I were a member of the council.

Ask yourself “why”. Could it be that thugs, idiots, racists, and criminals actually ARE representative of the community?

Therein lies the larger problem.

It doesn’t matter what the geographic region that the government person represents - you have to consider that they are supposed to be the “best and brightest” of that region.

They take pride in them,,,thats why they elect them over and over and over. They don’t view them as thugs, idiots, racists and criminals. They see them as standing up to whitey.

Yup...and IMO most of all so she can have all those 501C donation for herself...tax free!!!

I think that cancelling the entirety of section 501 may have net benefits to the US (although it would produce screams from the Elites and the scammers who benefit from it).

OK, any color other than what she was. Since it was supposed to represent the emptiness they had without that knowledge, just an outline probably would have been more appropriate.

With her attitude it looks like she could easily fill Obama’s shoes.

Or slip into one of the spots held by our many dumb, arrogant, or surly blacks in congress or the senate.

I can’t remember his name either but do you all remember Diane Ragsdale? Wow, what a piece of work she was. I think she was on the council in the 70’s though. Wonder what ever happened to her. JWP is a total fool though.

This reminds me of a workplace incident. I was i a group having lunch and mentioned that it was cotton harvesting season in my agricultural town and that the smell of the defoliant gave me a headache. A black gentleman, just a regular city guy, expressed surprise that they used defoliant to harvest the cotton. An uber lib white guy said, what, you don’t know about picking cotton. He later chastised me for being insensitive to the black colleague. Racist blacks and liberals simply will not let us get over racism and slavery.

“Stay away from these black people.”

I agree. One day I was asked by a black lady here at work, “would you ever date a black girl?”

I responded, “absolutely not!”

She gasped and asked, “WHY?”

I told her, “Because I wouldn’t want to deal with the rascists that seem to dominate the black community.”

She further inquired, “What do you know about rascists in the black community?”

I answered, “If one is willing to look, then there is plenty to see. There are many, if not most, in the black community that despise me because I am white and their rascist ‘leaders’ have told them to hate me. No thanks, I’m not willing to play that game and date any black girl.”

She shut up pretty quickly.

Omg PLEASE tell me where Hag...I mean Hodge was in the news every night for her 501C thing. When I found she was “founder” of that thing I knew it had to be a scam. Please do tell so I can forward it to the local news and post it all over the place. I did notice the address was a post office box in OHIO...and she’s here in Martinsville, VA.

Oh less fraud in gov’t is better than one still in there.
