  •  I read the diary. (0+ / 0-)

    And I notice you comment here and not where I directly comment to you.

    So I'll ask you again:

    Charlie Rangel used 'definitively racist' language when he referred to Southern White Segregationists of the Civil Rights Era as 'white crackers'?

    Still waiting for an answer to that question.

    Not holding my breath, however.

    Do you even know, without going to Wikipedia or a dictionary, what racism is?  You do realize that African Americans can NOT be racist towards white people, don't you?   And by extension, can NOT engage in 'definitively racist' language, right?

    I think you lack a basic understanding of what racism is, and also lack any historical perspective concerning Rangel's comment.

    You may ignore this comment all you like -- and you can also reply to someone else regarding how you're simply not feeding 'it', but you can't hide from the comments you make, GoGoGoEverton.

    all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
