    in the facts... unless you are admitting to being a card carrying member of the Tea Party... which, if that is the case... carry on... at your own risk.

    Funny how you never got your dander up for any of the Don Lemon "these are the problems with the black community" diaries as "rubbing our face in it"... or is it ok in your estimation that "those people" have their face rubbed in it but when it's white people's failings then that's just wrong...

    Fear doesn't just breed incomprehension. It also breeds a spiteful, resentful hate of anyone and everyone who is in any way different from you.

      first, how do you know I did not get my dander up? problems in the black community, white people's failings... give me a break.

      seriously. this doesn't solve anything. in fact, it maintains the status quo imo. but that is a comfortable place to be, right? it means we get to hold onto what we think we know about each other. and obviously, we know so little.

      but hey, you keep at it.

        I will concede that it is entirely possible that you did so elsewhere...

        Possible but not probable seeing that you cannot see how your persistent state of denial "maintains the status quo" while you try to shut down discussions of the status quo by alleging they only maintain it.

        if you don't want people to talk about it, here's an idea... don't post it in a public forum. then you won't even have to go through this exercise in kabuki theater where you act as if you are oh so put upon by a tangent you made an unsolicited and uncoerced decision to launch.
