The way I see it, this thread has attracted some possible Stormfront people. Chances are, they could be on Stormfront, and have come here. However, we have no possible way of proving this. We only have their words.

So what if they were from Stormfront? What then?

I've been to Stormfront just to see what kinds of things get posted there. Let's just say most people who come to city-data don't come here to see such hateful things. If we wanted it, we'd go to Stormfront. However, I'm not surprised to hear such an answer from you.

I'll bet some older folks also thought that with the invention of the color television wasn't even necessary because during basketball games, people could watch all the colored television they wanted!

It's absolutely disgusting watching two interracial people love each other.

An interracial gay couple would blow his tiny little mind.

And I'm 56 and my parents were an inter-racial couple.

Guess what - it is normal.

Well that explains a lot about your opinions. Because it is normal, that is like freaking out cause someone who is Jewish and someone who is Catholic are seen kissing.

And I think that is what scares people like him. He's having a tantrum because racist "values" like his are being tossed away for something better. He's screaming "genocide" because he can't have his way.
