There’s a fairly large segment of Alabama, which moved on. I left there in 1977, and when I go back these days...I’m amazed at the decline of inner-city areas (Birmingham and Huntsville)...significant growth of the middle class leaving urban areas....and job creation. It’s a totally place compared to thirty-five years ago.

"In addition to welshing welching on his lost bet, Holmes refuses to apologize for his racist comments. “What do you want me to apologize for?”"

Never mind. Your stupidity speaks volumes. Here's a friendly tip - don't go to Vegas.

They definitely need to hold him to his word.
He made such a vehement accusation, and said what he’d do, he needs to do it.

He needs to cough up $100k. The families can decide what to do with it.

I'm surprised at the number of bi-racial kids I see in the stores here (Mobile).

Mostly White women with half-Black kids.

Every Democrat got the 'memo' to stir the racial pot before this coming election....he's stupid but is trying to do his duty.

“Others in attendance expressed disbelief and disappointment in Holmes’s comments, saying they are anachronistic in contemporary Alabama.”

Wrong. They are contemporary reality among leftists, democrats and disaffected black Americans. Welcome to today’s ugly racists.

Democrats - STILL the party of racism and proud of it!

How about calling him a lying racist sack of crap instead of engaging in ephemerals?

RE: “I will bring you $100,000 cash tomorrow if you show me a whole bunch of whites that adopted blacks in Alabama,” Holmes said.

So, how many families does Holmes have to give $100,000 to?

The families should show a little compassion and go easy on him. In spite of his stupid statements the families should allow him to pay in $50’s and $100’s if it makes the payments easier to carry.

Has anyone called and asked this GENIUS if he kept his promise?? From the Alabama state legislature web site:

Been there since 1974, eh? 40 years...

I don’t care if he only gives the whole lot of them $100k,
as long as he coughs it up.

Leftist racism needs to have consequences.

he stated that “99 percent” of Republicans in the Yellowhammer State would order their daughters to get abortions if they were impregnated by black men.

To be fair, he's probably correct on this one.

Is “impregnated” the same thing as “raped”? Just asking.

I’ve seen examples of whites adopting black babies, but not the other way around. I wonder why?
