Yes, racists come in all colors but as corny as it sounds two wrongs don't make a right. There is no way racist remarks can be justified because someone of another color makes racist remarks. One thing is certain, we can't defeat racism with racism.
. .. Well said, my thoughts are so what? Racism to me means total hate, thats not there. People, birds, mammals,lizards, are weary of another not like themselves. Is that racist?

Forrest, they would have booed regardless. Sports bring this kind of zealot to the stands.
If you’ve played organized sports and know what it is like to compete for a common goal, then you know your teammates are like your brothers/family. You’ll have their backs regardless of skin color. The boos aren’t part of the problem because boos are part of the game especially as a fan. I’ve booed with the best of them to show support for my team, but racial slurs are just not part of any logical sporting gestures. It’s pure ignorance no matter the originator’s skin color. What I find “disgusting” and offended by is at a time to be a celebratory moment for this young man and his teammates turned into hate of a person/race and not the game or team. This is a sport, a game, entertainment, or a competition of physical and mental wills for Christ’s sake; not a life or death or a political situation. It’s a bloody game for crying out loud. I’m sorry it just doesn’t fit, and I personally don’t subscribe. As for the Panthers and the likes, they are just as wrong without any regards to human decency when they resort to the same idiotic tactics. Boos aren’t part of the problem; it’s the silly silly clowns who think it’s all good and fun to dish verbal ignorance. It's just the way I feel about the situation; right or wrong.

That's mighty arrogant even for a God fearing angel like yourself...don't you think?
No Forrest, arrogance would be what we have been watching in the White House and since I don't know when on Capitol Hill. Arrogance is what I have watched this White House group of whatever it is... the most boldly antiAmerican, anti-good relationships of any kind except with everything that is our collective enemy. Now that is arrogance. Me? No angel and never claimed to be... but I do love the truth and I HATE hypocrisy and the art of liars. So if you want to define that as arrogance, well that's your call. I call it telling the bold truth - my idea of the audacity of hope where its REALLY found. At any rate, I will not tolerate racism in any form no matter who is flinging it. I am intolerant of people that are guilty as they accuse and seeking to remake this country into just another sad tale of evil and lostness. You want some more real arrogance? Knock on the Democrat's door, because there is the truest animal of the sort. I have watched what liberals have done to get their way and all its nasty effects? I only find a certain sick disgust at this point. There is no conscience in them at all. Not at all.

Maybe the best thing to call racism is to call it what it is, misanthropy.

Wow! I’m really saddened to witness this WK5. Don’t let them take your soul my sister; it’s truly not worth it.

Chirpstory.com collected the offensive tweets, almost all which used NSFW language and heavy use of racist terms. You will also note that the total list includes a signifant greater number of tweets that condemn the racist ones. Why weren't they mentioned in your thread? Link: http://chirpstory.com/li/6781

TPTB.............the "elite"......they take every opportunity to promote ignorance and misguided thinking.. That includes nurturing the idea of "race"... There is only one race. The Human race. Point of fact.....we can all interbreed. Thus, from a biological perspective....race does not exist. No more than calling a chesnut horse a different race than a black horse. Divide and CONquer. That's their m.o. Race is a great straw man to distract us from the real issue....money, power, and education....ie....class.
Mikey likey.........beary well put.........and succinct........I shall attempt same......... Race does not exist- hammer/nail.........It is indeed man made.......Skin color merely a benign characteristic........Racism is to presume superiority of one color over another...........Sounds silly, but some folks still believe it.........Thankfully, not many...........Another example of racism, or racial bias, is the belief that certain behavior is caused by your skin color.........Utterly absurd, never proven in any study, but nonetheless still held by a few non-thinking modern citizens........... Big government provokes and fuels racial issues to benefit Sam..........The downtrodden need protection, after all..........And food and shelter, of course...........So the so called war on poverty results in billions/trillions of dollars in wealth redistribution and forty plus years later here we are..........with mo po den befo......... The answer is simple..........If the poor class is to shrink it must shrink itself........STOP PROCREATING if you're poor..........Makes sense to Mike13...........Why should poor people be having babies they can't afford to raise? It's idiotic........Maybe child neglect or abuse......... Why not offer incentives to welfare recipients not to have kids? Probably cost a lot less to buy em off than to pay for their children.........We could win this war on poverty by spending less and getting better results........... Too harsh you say? I think not...........The alternative is kids starving in the streets when mega shock occurs............The swelling poverty class will feel the pain when government runs out of money to feed them........The numbers say it is inevitable..........

The fact that many (happily so) deplore a shameful act does not exonerate the perpetrators nor does it cancel out the very real fact that racism is alive and well in the world despite the efforts of many to claim that it is a mythological beast conjured up almost single-handedly by Rev. Sharpton and Mr. Jackson.
