So what would create the NEW polirization? Answer....the same thing that creates the OLD polirization.....the mindset of whites.
Your concluding sentence (even with the word 'polarization' spelled wrong) indicates that whites aren't the only ones carrying around mindsets. That goes two ways, which you've just proved magnificently.

People don't believe that TRUTH is a negative and hence they feel these things that whites say about blacks are just truths....which exempt them from being racist. Hence, whites don't attack people like you and your OBSERVATIONS because they agree with it as being truths.
Sub Forum guidelines dictates that posts that are flaming, one lined replies or attacks on poster or other shall be reported.

That has been done in abundance in this thread, so I find your generalizing statement quite offensive.

It is statements such as the one in italic above that leads people to label you as hateful and racist. You may not agree, but it's an example of such behavior. Another would be the prejudice, rude and condescending tone in several of your relies to me.

Again no need to agree, but there's your examples. That said, there's several other posters in here who's way out of line, all of which have been reported at least once.

I'm not any more responsible for denouncing JBMallorys post, than you are for officially speak up against a random black criminal or racist. I've reported posts, according to guideline, as you should do too.

That said, I fully expect this post to be deleted as well (if there ever is a cleanup in this thread) as it doesn't deal with the original topic.

and what is the significance of the word not being spelled correctly?

All majority black major cities were once majority white. Our "Mindset" was integration....your mindset was evacuation. This phenomenon of segregation in no way works both ways.....in degree...but only in kind. History clearly demonstrates this.

This thread should have never made it past page one, and talking about mods and what they should and shouldn't do is also against the TOS, but it doesn't help the point of what IS is on this board to do. He has succeeded.

No...I am not talking about HIDDEN dissaproval. I am talking about people POSTING displeasure in what they are saying. Why do you have to HIDE your dissproval? Why can't you report it and WRITE it.....like I am sure is done against what I write. I NEVER report anything anyone says....I am not into censorship. I want to KNOW what people really think and I cannot do that by attempting to condemn that which I don't like to here.

Yes...but threads that attack blacks can go on and on.....forever....and you will rarely, if ever, read another white poster condemn them. The condemnation ONLY starts when a black person comes in to defend black folks....by demonstrating the history of white folks.....then, and only then, you want the topic to be closed! People in hiding don't like being exposed. It makes them angry.

When the moderators fail to do the job they're set to do, I don't have any problem voicing my concern about that, if that's a problem I'm more than happy to discuss it with the (atm) one functioning (or lack thereof) moderator of Great Debates.

As for your comments about the thread, I disagree, I think it's an interesting issue, how it's being presented leaves something to be desired at times.

It maintained a certain level of focus for an impressive amount of time, considering some of the posts in here.

I don't hide my disapproval, again, you jump to conclusions based on things I haven't written.

I report it, according to the guidelines of this sub forum. I'm not into censorship myself, but the point of this sub forum is to maintain a higher level than for instance Politics and Controversies.

Getting into petty fights with posters who has nothing to contribute other than ignorance, personal attacks and other flaming statements with no relevance to the original topic is something I don't see much point in.

The only reason I said anything about you is because you specifically asked for it. Other than that I find that my descriptions of you nor other posters been held to a minimum. (I am aware I've mentioned your posting attitude earlier in the thread, but only because I felt it relevant to the debate).

I'm not responsible for other posters opinions or posts, I'd ask you to show me enough respect to honor that.

I've never asked for thread closure.

It is because most white people know the truth that blacks refuse to accept.

If you want me to respect you....direct me to the post where you or other whites are condemning what whites are saying about blacks...you butted into an assertion to that intent. So if you want my respect then you need to demonstrate a repudiation of my claim. Show me where another white poster has been jumped and condemened for what they imply or say about blacks....relative to how I have been condemened. furthermore, demonstrate my TONE. How do you know what my tone is? Do you suspect that there might be a cultural difference here between us? I am hardly angry or mad or anything of the sort......so what makes people glean such?
