The condescending tones, vitriol, and overall ignorance are extreme buzz-kills. They must come here to C-D because no one else can stand to be in a room with them. Poor bastards.
Seriously. You demonstrate it perfectly.

Your retort exhibits condescending tone and a lot of vitriol. While I won't go as far as adding display of extreme ignorance, it is a perfect display of being unable to handle uncomfortable conversations in an adult like manner and hence the tactic of attacking the messenger instead of the message. Of course dropping the R-word says quite a bit as well.

Maybe your post is satire, but sadly I'm thinking not.

It amazes me that some of these threads are still going. And what's amazing is the fact that people will say "Well, people like to use one example of caucasians acting a certain way to paint a picture for their whole race!" But there's a huuuuuge difference.

No one was lynched, enslaved, or just generally disliked (to the point of death threats and actual murder) for simply being "lighter skinned". A whole culture and way of life was not based around keeping these same "lighter skinned" folks down and in a slave-like mentality using religion, laws and whole policies, for years. Ever since they were brought to a new country and torn from their families and their culture removed, which passed down from line to line. That's the difference.

And it's like they want to ignore that, up until the 50's, blacks and whites couldn't even use the same bathroom or be in the same spaces together! It wasn't THAT long ago, people. You think those emotions/feelings/sentiments just disappeared? By thinking they did, you are only adding to the problem. And all you want people to do is understand, but they don't. In other countries they've got it right. In America? Fuggetaboutit.
But...immigrants fro non-white countries have never ever used the same facilities as white Americans before they arrive and yet, many, especially the East Asians, now succeed and have a far higher family income than even the whites. How is it that the black and hispanics are still bringing up the rear? I notice that the anger of these ignorant jerks are directed at whites, Jews and Asians....all more successful than they are. Sour grape fermented into racial hatred.

This country is great and free. There is public education, even for the poorest (with free breakfast and lunches if you qualify, courtesy of middle class tax payers like me and millions of others). If you choose to study, work hard and learn, you can acquire the skills necessary to get out of poverty. The operative verb is "to choose." If you choose to go into gangs like many young black and hispanic men do, then your fate in life is sealed.

When you die and if there is a heaven you can complain to your ancestors for importing African slaves.

All of those losers looked way to young to have grown up in a time you reference. Instead they likely were raised with racial chips on their shoulders, put there by either their parent/s and/or the liberal school system, which only teaches PC history now days.
Just as a little white kid in a KKK outfit is being poisoned by his parents, so too are little black kids. To think otherwise is to ignore reality.

As to your last comment, what other countries have it right in your view, and in what specific way

interesting how a story about militant blacks yelling about killing white people inspires C-D's resident black posters not to condemn them, but rather to rant and squeal about white people themselves

Isn't that the truth, easy money says, the ass clowns would say "nothing" to the Hardee Boys. " The Quite Professionals"

Tier-1, Delta and Green Beret Operators. Slam Dunk say's > the big mouths roll out gingerly with their tails neatly tucked away.

That would be a sight to see. Like another poster said, the cupcakes only prey on the weak..

While I think the message they send is hateful at best, I support their right to say it. I also support them suffering the consequences of saying those things. I don't advocate violence or wish them harm, but if they did that in the wrong place the consequences would present themselves swiftly.

As far as calling these people Christians, that's like me quoting the Koran and calling myself a Muslim, or using any other religion in its place.

These guys are attention-seekers and bring nothing to the table. They only serve to further divide the country on religious and racial issues. Thank goodness they're probably just a flash in the pan group of fools, and they'll quickly go away.

I also do think they were definitely in the realm of hate speech and the police probably could have been justified putting that nonsense to a stop.

You noticed that, too? Ugly is ugly no matter which side. For some reason, there are those who think they get a pass to be nasty with the insults. Talk of sheets fitting.
