Sadly, no one group has a monopoly on hatred...nor has anyone stated that as a point of fact
That's true. Sad, but true.

A lot of this nonsense (if not all of it) is just stuff they really want to say to folks in real life but don't have the guts to do it. So they come here on some confrontational stuff and try to air it out.

Anyway, this is grain of salt sh*t to me....i just enjoy pointing it out after i spot it.
One thing I like, but also dislike, is the anonymity the internet provides. People can go on the net and violate political correctness. When all is said and done I like that fact. It comes in handy when openly discussing topics in race, gender preference, illegal immigration, and a host of other topics. Unfortunately anonymity also allows folks to be rude, hostile and of course openly insulting. Now and then I'll say something that I'll think is insightful or who knows, maybe even intelligent. Often someone will toss back an insult for my trouble. Like most people, I've gotten accustom to those things, yet I can't help wondering what would happen if the person were sitting across a table from me and demonstrated such behavior.

In another forum there was a guy who made some valid points on a topic but yet he discussed topics in a rude manner. I told him that he had a choice, mutual respect, or be ignored. He apparently chose the ignore option. I never read another word he posted.

Oh please.
It's anti-black and anti-liberal from the words of the OP.
Then again, some people don't start threads unless they're anti-black and/or anti-liberal.

I'd really like to see some links to these "hundreds of posts" because I don't recall seeing that said on CD.
You can provide some links, can't you? After all, you made the assertion.

Yea, i know what's going on. I have no problem with the anonymity either, but i couldn't sleep at night if i said things on here that i wouldn't say to people in real life. I'm just not built that way. I realize that not everyone adheres to the same code, and that's fine. But some of this crap i read just has me scratching my head.

I was responding to the OP.

Some people are quite selective in what they read, hear, know.

How sad.
No, people with common sense have "come out in full force" to explain why the premise of your original post is (a) completely flawed and (b) an overt attempt at race-baiting. Not one single poster in this thread has stated that they approve of violence commited by one human (of any race) against another.

Where are the mods when you need them? Why do obvious race baiting threads like this never get closed?
