I wasn't saying if I thought it was okay or not.Fri Jul 6, 2012 9:50am184.108.40.206I may have disagreed with SES about one thing, then agreed with another point. Sometimes I post to people without saying whether or not I agree with them.
I think discrimination by the government is bad.
I think discrimination by churches is bad because they are tax exempt, and that makes the government linked to the discrimination.
I think it's okay for private citizens to discriminate in their personal lives and choose friends who are the same race as them. Private groups of friends should also be allowed to discriminate, even if they are all helping each other in some way.
Some groups are in between, and I'm unsure about all the in between groups.
- "WHITES CHRISTIANS ONLY CONFERENCE" Gateway, Thu Jul 5 12:12pmThis is not a hate group even with a strong kkk presence. Of course we should believe them. They are white christians with no reason to lie, distort or mislead us in any way. All they are looking for ... more
- Yep they never left, they're only just starting to get it Διός, Sun Jul 8 12:00amout in the open again and all the bigots and rednecks will be rejoicing themselves again with vigour. Διός
- Since when has the KKK not been an hate group ChristopherBlackwell, Thu Jul 5 7:21pmGateway, I think I missed that part of the Bible where God stated that the White Race was the chosen Race. Last I heard it was still the Jewish people.That might upset the KKK. If the only thing a... more
- If these douchebags wanted 'equal treatment' greenman, Thu Jul 5 4:46pm...they'd integrate and stop being racists.
- Yes.... Sprout, Fri Jul 6 8:42amThe Congressional Black Caucus probably should integrate...
- Racist! greenman, Fri Jul 6 8:00pmYour first impulse is to find black Americans to blame, that's why.
- Liar... (nm) Sprout, Sun Jul 8 4:25pm
- Eat me (nm) greenman, Sun Jul 8 6:50pm
- You know what always come to the top in a cooking pot, the Διός, Sat Jul 7 11:52pmchef will have to remove the floating scum himself. Finally we get to see the real racist in here it only took a while. Διός
- Good for them. B, Thu Jul 5 2:57pmI think it's funny when liberals get all whipped up into a frenzy and froth at the mouth when white people do something that involves only white people. In a liberals mind it's O.K for people with... more
- Translation greenman, Thu Jul 5 5:00pm'Racism is cool if it upsets them durn lib'ruls!' Up yours.
- Why point out liberals? Gateway, Thu Jul 5 4:01pmDon't you think that they also can be racist? However, that is not the point. What should be the concern when speaking of god is the theory of god's philosophy of equality. At least that is what I... more
- You really don't know that? Sprout, Fri Jul 6 8:44amIt is the liberals who run the double standard of saying that it is OK for CERTAIN raical groups to have racially limited organizations, but that it is NOT OK for OTHER racial groups to have racially ... more
- Because... B, Thu Jul 5 5:06pm... the gist of the entire article is about labeling this group as racist because it’s white only not because it’s a Christian group. I didn’t see anything about “businesses” and “residents” being... more
- Yet a Black Southern Baptist conference is OK? (nm) Sprout, Thu Jul 5 12:43pm
- the Black Southern Baptist Heathen57, Thu Jul 5 11:06pmconference never allowed, endorsed, or called for the lynching and harassment and destruction of the white man. The KKK has been convicted of all those things and more. Matter of fact, none of the... more
- So what? the group you are opposing isn't the KKK? (nm) Sprout, Fri Jul 6 8:34am
- Blues brothers in a black church: Ken C, Thu Jul 5 10:09pmI think black churches have mostly black people, but allow other races too. Like this, but without all the dancing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZVhzVTBDvA&feature=related
- It's so tiresome greenman, Thu Jul 5 4:45pm...to continue to see, at this point in our history, white people who are STILL unaware of 300 years of slavery and racism. I mean, f--k, man...
- I think it's okay if it's not "blacks only". Ken C, Thu Jul 5 12:57pmSee my reply and all the links I posted to SES below.
- How about the National Association for the Advancement of Sprout, Thu Jul 5 12:59pmColored People... Try creating a National Association for the Advancement of White People, and see if folks think that is equally acceptable.
- Thanks for the example. Ken C, Thu Jul 5 10:05pmTrying to advance one race might not be as bad as disallowing a race like in the original post. A National Association for the Advancement of White People might not be as bad as the KKK is.
- The NAAWP would be potrayed as being Sprout, Fri Jul 6 5:46amIDENTICAL to the KKK by the same folks who currently protect the NAACP.
- There is certainly a point in time at which PureStevil, Thu Jul 5 1:08pmgroups like this do more to keep racism alive then to mitigate damage from the past. Are we there yet? I'm not certain. But it's not far off if it isn't already here.
- doh. "Than", not "then" (nm) PureStevil, Thu Jul 5 1:09pm
- And a Blacks Only Caucus in DC. (nm) SES, Thu Jul 5 12:47pm
- If they were Repubs, they'd be OK greenman, Thu Jul 5 4:45pmDon't lie and try to pretend otherwise, either. We all remember Unca Clarence and the 'black seat' on the Supreme Court.
- Do you have any evidence of such a thing? Ken C, Thu Jul 5 12:56pmI already did some searching, I can't find any Blacks Only churches. It looks like black churches started as a result of discrimination by whites, and now those churches allow all races.... more
- Huh? Do a search on "Black Caucus", I guess. SES, Thu Jul 5 1:17pmYou've never heard of the Congressional Black Caucus?
- Oh, I thought we were talking about churches. Ken C, Thu Jul 5 5:10pmThe original post was about a church. I see there is a Black Caucus. They are politically nonpartisan, but they try to "advance the global black community". http://www.cbcfinc.org/aboutus.html
- OK.... So, it's not OK to have a one race only church... Sprout, Fri Jul 6 9:05amBut it's OK to have a one race only political organization?
- Cough-cough greenman, Sat Jul 7 6:23pmAll the straw in the room is making it hard to breathe.
- I wasn't saying if I thought it was okay or not. Ken C, Fri Jul 6 9:50am
- Black Caucus is an all-black organization. Ken C, Thu Jul 5 5:17pmhttp://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2006/sep/8/20060908-123054-1413r/ It is “critical” that the Congressional Black Caucus remain an all-black organization, one of the CBC’s founders has said in a... more
- And a Blacks Only Business Association. (nm) SES, Thu Jul 5 12:48pm
