I think I've had enough of this. I hope the mods do something about this blatant racial attack.

Here is a link to educate you in case you "didn't know" and it was an "honest mistake"

The Coon Caricature
Get out of here!

He made a good point, and all you guys can do is stress one word he used, and flip it to use the race card?

Give me a freakin break.

Isn't that what both of you perpetually do with everything that I post simply because the source of the majority of the criminal activity is perpetrated by illegal aliens from Mexico? Not to worry we'll let Synopsis decide.

i dont condone the behaviour of the smuggler. but what threat did he pose?

whenever a peace officer discharges their gun, it must be reported. when they pull their batton it must be reported (which is incidentally why its common practice to use fists and elbows. you dont have to include that in a report).

these guys should have covered there buttocks.

they didnt. they shot some thug. the thug lived to tell. and now they are suffering the consequnces.

the law figured out what to do. you guys just dont agree with it.

no problem here.

considering the main source of articles...I didnt expect anything of substance either.

Some people are like coons in the night, you can't see them and thus it's better to pretend you can't hear them rattling the garbage cans.
They shoulda dug a hole.. then shot'em... one less illegal lowlife to house at tax payers expense!

but if it makes everyone feel better i will change it to possums.

i got plenty of those around here.

and i apologize in advance if i have offended anyone who has been compared to a possum. or has possum relatives.
First you insult, then you patronize. Well, be sure to say hi to sassy and amc when you join them on my ignore list

Be blessed.

otherwise i aint worried about that.

if i had you face to face, then of course i wouldnt use those words as i understand that they have historical racial connotations. i wouldnt try to offend you. thats not good debate.

since we are for the most part anonymous, then trust that it is not meant with malicious intent.

ive erroneously assumed people were white or male. ive been corrected before and now i stand corrected.

thus, my analogy now deals with possums and not coons.

In all fairness to The one, I myself did not know JDubsMom was black and I have commented on a lot of her threads. Also in fairness I cannot say weather or not the coon comment was meant to be racially charged. I can say I get the analogy and it works with raccoons or possums. I think the one should just try and be a little more careful with his/her posts. Things are easily misconstrued on the forum sometimes, especially when it seems the poster has past links to racial remarks. On the other hand, had the one simply used the proper form of the word coon, which would be raccoon I don't think there would have been the slightest problem. So while I can't speak for this poster I am willing to give the benefit of the doubt that it was simply an analogy and nothing more. So don't make me a liar later on down the road the one, I sort of went to bat for you here. And for anyone who was offended by that comment, don't let it get to you to much. Just keep in mind that it very well may have been an honest mistake and not meant to have racial undertones. Just a bad choice of words.

PS Using words like homegirl is not helping my case here!

I never play the victim. I wouldn't dream of taking your job. Besides you're so good at it.


As for what I do? I provide valuable information that pertains to this illegal alien invasion to my fellow Americans. Just ask them, I guarantee you the odds are they will concur.

Valuable information? LOL. Take yourself a little too seriously, dont you?
