Examples include a person thinking or stating the sum of:

"My sociopolitical group is Latino, and I see this group as being disadvantaged in ways x, y, and z".

"My sociopolitical group is Jewish, and I see this group as being disadvantaged in ways x, y, and z".

etc. The group is utterly interchangeable. You could insert any group in this statement, the world over, to give an example of the format of an "ethno-political concern" for that group.

Generally, this is followed up by thoughts or statements on possible solutions. Often, these solutions are the same or even more inward looking than a "WN" might suggest.

PS. I don't know what your "asking for a friend" caveat is supposed to have relevance to or communicate.

That isn't what she said. She said terror won't stop unless they reform their aggressive cult, or they simply are eradicated from the face of the earth. That is a totally true and legit statement. Those are the only conditions under which it is likely there will not be muslim terror, because it comes from their beliefs, which are dictated by their religious text.

Also, how could that comment be "Racist" when muslim is not a race?

So you have to be fine with Islam to even work in your own homeland in America? How many incompatible global cultures do Americans have to assimilate to and tolerate no matter how intolerable? I don't care if muslims reform themselves or go extinct, just as long as they stay where they are and are not allowed to come here.

That would be illegal. The government can't fire people for political beliefs.

They can't? Ask Karen Fitzgibbons about that and get back to me. Then after you get her opinion, ask Cammie Rone what she thinks.

Personally, it bothers me a little when racists are fired, not because they shouldn't be, but because this has the effect of sending so many of them back under the woodwork; and I would prefer that they stay out in the open where everyone can see them and know what they are.

Yes, I see racism everywhere, that's why other people are publishing articles about what "I see."
And yes, this teacher is now under investigation, obviously because of what "I see."

This is a poor response when you have been shown to be wrong. Sad.

Never heard any black, latino or asian nationalists or supremacists in the USA, even yet in the school system. Care to provide a quote, a cite, a source, anything ?
