Racism = inequality
Child molesting = inequality

The Pope is right. Inequality is the root of all evil.

Some people have this idea that racism = whites discriminating against blacks. When in reality, a person of any race can be a racist. When I was growing up I don't remember EVER having seen so many cries of "racism" as we see today. In fact, look at movies and tv shows from the 60s through the 80s. Where was the racism then? In fact, black characters in those movies and tv shows were often seen as (and treated as) regular members of society. It's as if it has become a TREND in today's world to claim that there's rampant racism against blacks.

How can you even come close to equating racism to a vicious, brutal act against defenseless children?

It is the same mindset.

I am stronger than you.

I can do/say what I want with/about you.

You have no defences, you are weaker than I.

It's bullying.

One way or another, a stronger individual getting his rocks off by abusing those he feels are "beneath" him.

I'm saying that "racists" are TREATED WORSE IN THE PUBLIC EYE than even child molesters and definetly murderers and rapists, no matter how bad they are.

And the trend gets much worse when something like Sterling happens. To the race baitors it justifies everything they've said about white people. Forget the fact that former owner jay-z, the president of the united states, and a knicks executive larry johnson, have said much more racist things than Sterling.

Who does not know that the players were sipping Courvoisier last night talking openly about all the white people who had been "schooled" whilst laughing and calling them all kinds of names.

Give me a break puhlease.

I don't know what happened historically but I do know that today blacks rape, kill, lynch whites all the time in America and no one says anything about it and the media ignores it. The president is a racist who would rather make a long statement on Donald Sterling than discuss the knockout game, where blacks randomly choose whites to sucker punch and many have died from.

If you don't believe me look at this...look at all the black on white murders that have gone on just in 2014... New Nation News - Black-on-White Crime .... won't even see a mention of any of them in any kind of media outside of the local channels that have to report every murder in the area. Nobody says anything about the lynching going on today but when one black man(trayvon or jordan davis) get killed by one man in a one on one we all say "racism isn still alive this is just like emmitt till blah blah blah). It's crazy what's going on today.
Politically Correct is fascism by another name.

The black people of this country are not the only group of people that have been enslaved, kidnapped, raped, tortured and lynched. If you go back into history you will see this has been happening since we began to walk upright. They wouldn't have found it offensive if the private conversation remained private.
You can't tell people what to say or think privately, it would be a different matter if the conversation was made in public but it wasn't.
