That poster doesn't sound like a liberal. Can we stop with this "liberals are the real racists" nonsense?

This.

I'm a Black female who grew up in South Central, Los Angeles, and my siblings and I have manners. Surprise, surprise.

Probably grew up in broken homes - mom had children by different men - lots of drugs involved - mom has been on welfare for a long time and how do the kids have a real chance at anything? I believe there is a huge difference between AA of California as opposed to AA in the south. I think the ones who come from the south are raised with manners and respect for their elders. If I am wrong I am sure someone will let me know. It's my observation-my opinion.

By the way, Iterease, welcome to California.

You're wrong.

Ah, yes the South. Where they say "well bless your heart", which is the same thing as "go f**k yourself" in NYC.

I would rather hear it direct thank you.

As has been already said, manners come from the home and the parents.

Knowledge is power.

Also, you must be watching movies with that southern elder respect nonsense. I'm pretty much done with this but I really hope you open your eyes and get past your prejudices especially if you have never lived in the south like I have.
My sister has lived in Memphis for years and I have heard her say that the Blacks she knows are very respectful - kind w/ good manners. Of course many of them went to school with her kids..and became good friends. I should not have said that Los Angeles AA have no manners because that isn't true. My grandson's nurses have all been WONDERFUL and are African American and I assume they are from L.A. I shouldn't assume anything ...

I hate these threads and they are getting old actually. Bottom line, I like everyone as long as you are respectful and kind. I don't care what color you are. You can be green-black-brown-red- or gray but if you are nice to me - you will get it in return big time.

How about these racial threads be gone? Don't we have enough hate in the world? We are AMERICANS!!

I apologize if I offended anyone. One thing I am not is someones sheep. I think for myself and what I have observed myself. We are going backwards and that is not good for any of us.. Peace!

With the Chris Brown situation, it seems like mostly rich black men in Los Angeles are being targeted by racist gold diggers and false accusers.

I don't consider CB to be Black anymore. His Brother card is now revoked.
