I don't report my posts to you. However, if I see a racist statement I usually respond.



Glad you finally see my point.

I don't know the reason why Nancy the reader posted her story of good will.
However it was a good story regardless.
As I stated I don't necessarily like the illegal situation than any other and do feel they should be deported.
That being stated, I felt the original OP was a relevant story and certainly as relevant as the van driver who was illegal hits bus and kills kids, thread.
Further, I notice the constant throwing of the term Raciest around this board like candy thrown to kids at a parade.
Seriously, I don't think most of you would know a true raciest from a closet queen until they slipped the rope over your neck, Ive met them and they are really really scary to the point of being mental.
A true raciest doesn't just call people names. Most people do have a certain disposition of distrust towards those of another race until they get to know them.
Heck most people distrust members of the same race till they get to know them. Thats human nature. We are hard wired to be distrustful of others. Dont knock it unless ya wanna be awarded the Darwin award.
Cut the poster some slack as she has refrained from posting her opinion in other thread about this section.
I kinda like her.

Yes, and some don't realize they are making a racist statement until it's pointed out. Saying an entire race is humble and respectful is the same as saying an entire race likes watermelon.


Can't compare the van-driving murderer with the OP here. The van driver was an illegal, a criminal...and "roasted" as such.


Now as to who's the raciest closet queen....sorry, don't know many

Mexicans are not a race. Mexico is a country.

nancy thereader,
You're post was a nice change, and you were talking about an individual. I have met many that were warm and caring and with any group of people, you get the good with the bad. I never judge a whole group of people by one person, but I try to see the best in anyone unless they prove different.
Thanks Again,
Sassy

True:

A friend of mine; born and raised SOB along with both of his parents, is a Mexican and considers himself Hispanic----despite all four of his (White) grandparents immigrating from Eastern Europe many years ago.

An illegal alien can be an immigrant but is not neccessarily one.
And you typed all of that to say absolutely nothing.

Not surprised at your view. What took so long?

Language is hard. Stick to it and it will come.

If that wasn't condescending/insulting/borderline personal attack then I'm not sure what is. But something tells me from what has been allowed and not allowed as of late on this forum, attacks against anti illegals will be tolerated.
