      are you looking at? And when you call the South "deep shit," you are engaging in racism yourself. The percentage of blacks is higher in the South than the rest of the country. You've decided that all of them are "deep shits," I guess?

        You guess wrong , so very very wrong it could only be intentional on your part , what does that say about you ?
        "deep shits,"
        You put quote marks around "deep shits," but you added an s to "deep shit" to change it into "deep shits," , you have changed it into something you can play with , that's a game for children .
        Nevada is the Deep South? What map
        are you looking at?
        The one in bundy's head .
        And when you call the South "deep shit," you are engaging in racism yourself.
        I didn't call the south deep shit . Do try again .
        The percentage of blacks is higher in the South than the rest of the country.
        and that will fix the problem in bundy's head ? That will keep racists like bundy from believing in the deep south bullshit ?

        Sheriff Joe Arpaio Orders Deputies to Carry AR-15 Style Rifles and Remain Armed Off Duty
           Arizona is the deep south and dont forget it.

        Aye; and the deep-shit South at that.
        It's setting a new standard for state-sponsored mean-spiritedness and overt racism, which is quite an achievement.

      •  indycam was so outraged that I hit recommend (0+ / 0-)

        on samanthab's comment that he sent me two messages.  These are the responses I sent to him.

        Response 1:
        I do not remember exactly what your original comment said. I strongly agreed with samanthab that Nevada is not in the deep South. There are strong political and cultural differences.
        In addition, the worst racism I have seen has been in northern cities. Constantly expressing hostility toward all Southerners is not likely to make moderate white Southerners vote for the candidates you think they should prefer. Many Southern communities have elected African Americans. I did not agree with the strength of samanthab's comment, but her observations on geography and demographics are accurate.

        Response 2:
        The problem with your comment was a matter of regionalism.  Samanthab may have been bothered by the perception that you believe African American people in the South do not stand up for themselves.  
        I was also bothered by the perception that you feel all white people currently living in the South are racists just as Bundy is. Look at photos of some of the Moral Monday protests in North Carolina and similar protests.  Coalitions of reasonable whites and minority groups could change some states below the Mason-Dixon line into blue states.  Suggestions that southern whites are all bigots encourages them to vote for Republicans.  It was Southern Democrats who ran the Jim Crow system.
        I do not perceive you to be racist toward African Americans.  It was the wording of your comment that I disagreed with and your assumptions about the southern US.
        I am going to post my replies to you on the original thread.  This is an issue that could make a difference in several close races next fall.

        •  "outraged" ? (0+ / 0-)

          Did I say I was "outraged" ?
          Or did you just pull that bullshit out of your nether regions ?

          You remind me of that many times over banned troll hubbard squash . You talk just like him , imho .
