I don't think I'd even vote for a black Republican candidate even though he would probably be 10000 times more educated. Needless to say, a black Democrat would turn the country into socialism.

No blacks in my life time.
Wow. Just when I think that kids of the current generation are able to move beyond using racist phrases like Negro and making idiotic statements like this, you go ahead an prove me wrong.

No doubt that Kamil is a racist, but is the word Negro racist? I thought is was an accepted term.

It's a declasse term, but then again, context is everything. I have no doubt our young dolt chose to use the term with the explicit intent to highlight his racist sentiments.

He's an abberration. If there is one thing I have enjoyed about being a dad who has watched three of his five sons grow to adulthood, it is seeing the huge change from when I was in high school in the attitude of the young on race. My sons have wonderful black friends who are always welcome in my home. It's happening all over the country, most young adults would think Kamil is a piece of shit.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

You are correct, when, like Zeitgeist said, it is used in proper scholarly or historic context, (For example, a documentary where, say Alex Haley or the (white) grandson of some plantation owner talks about the plight of the Negro back then and the arrival of the Negro today). It is not when used in modern times to refer present current blacks.

True, and the rest of them would *know* he was.

Yep. It's hard to believe it's the same country as when I was a boy. It's gotten enough inertia now that the change is unstoppable, IMO. But for color-blindness in totality, my generation and apparently some of Kuntmill's have to die-off.

I think it is far superior to "colored people"--as in NAACP! Don't you?

Don't believe everything you think
