  •  I think that you mean well but I hate (12+ / 0-)

    these comments that go to the stereotype that Black people are out of control and violent. I read them on Daily Kos all the time.

    For example- wishing that some political enemy of ours like Dick Cheney gets put in a jail cell with a big Black guy so that he'll get raped or something.

    Another example- wishing that all these Black folks would mob Glen Beck and his supporters when they hold their DC rally on the anniversary of MLK's speech.

    Another- people sure that there would be rioting in the streets if the whole super delegate strategy by Hillary Clinton denied Barack Obama the nomination of the Democratic Party.

    Still another- support for the media's breathless anticipation of out of control behavior by the Haitian people after the earthquake.

    People around here need to do a little self-examination and wonder why that stereotype works so well for them.

    We've been taught since birth to view Black people as being overly emotional and prone to violence. We need to recognize the propaganda that we've all absorbed in this racist society.

    Why can't they say that hate is 10 zillion light years away- Stevie Wonder
