So I am automatically considered a member of the “club” where these comments are not edited. It’s like the white supremacists are probing how far can they can go with their comments before I shut them down. I make it clear I will not tolerate their comments. Yes, I personally know white supremacists but they are not wearing sheets. Most are polo shirt wearing cowards biding their time and having their chats at a backyard BBQ, or parking lot at a little league game, or wherever they can quietly find a mutual endorsement of their hate.

But make no mistake, the white supremacists I know would jump on the bandwagon in a heartbeat if the majority of Americans of all races did not resist them. Right now...They are starting to peek out from under that rock. I wonder what makes that possible?
Are you like new in America or young or something? Free speech, freedom of thought and consciousness are original and fundamental principles. For better or worse, like it or not, if speech and thoughts were being suppressed maybe during the Obama era and start to bubble out now, it was un-American if it were for them to be suppressed.

That said not every thought or speech needs to be expressed everywhere. I'm referring more to suppressing and labeling wrong-think and guilt by association.

Why would I want to be around someone who feels that they are better than me because they're White and I'm Black?

And based on history, white supremacy has led to some very bad things happening. I shouldn't have a problem with this because?

Nah, I guess if you know YOUR place, you are okay. (your place is: don't assume you know what is in everybody's heart.)


I just don't let other people's opinions bother me because they don't.
Including yours.

Look, nobody on this earth really knows what others say behind your back. As long as they respect me in front of my face, we are going to be okay. And guess what? They do. So my question is: why should I have a problem with them if they just believe white people should be the majority in this country? Truth be told: I don't have a problem with a black person who believes black is better than others either. I don't have a problem with an Asian who claims he/she is better than a mixed person, either. Everybody has an opinion. Where I draw the line? How they treat me. As long as they can stay civil in front of my face, we are going to be okay. Plus, You (the general term) can be the biggest racist who wants everybody who doesn't look like you to die, How am I going to know you are not just because you've never said any questionable things ? Come on, don't be that naive.

Quite frankly, I've heard many Asians say the same thing behind their own closed doors. Example: " I am here to be close to white people, not black." LOL I certainly don't share this stupid view point, but their opinions don't bother me either. I let people be.

It is not my place to police other people's thoughts. It is my responsibility to behave in a certain way I want to behave. Period.

Once you (the general term) TRULY believe everybody is your equal, you will stop this stupid ass "your place" non-sense. What a dorky way of interacting with others.

Wow, if over 40 people here know a true-blue WS, imagine how many there must be?

Let alone all the "unidentified" monsters still hanging in mom's basement (like the El Paso shooter).....

These days it's just a matter of when the next Right Wing Extremist decides to "save their race".

as we’ve seen, leftists now think that labeling someone a clown is a sure sign of ‘white supremacy’ so you might want to check your salivary glands before you get too giddy over these anonymous forum poll results.

I think the vast majority of people that some would label as White supremacists are really just White people that feel that they don't have a place in today's globalized world. There are very few actual White supremacists in this country.

You know, that's a really good point, and it isn't made very often (if at all).

Could you please ask them to stop?

He's a white person, I'm addressing him. Not you. If you're a Black I can see why you'd reflexively not want to be around White Supremacist types.

And many ideologies taken to their extremes have led to bad things. Socialism has produced Pol Pot, Stalin and other regimes that killed many people. At its heart, socialism is about the equality of man. Sounds lovely, but produced many deaths. Religions have resulted in many deaths as well even when Christ says "love thy neighbor."

The active denigration of others by white supremacists is not ďopinionĒ. And they are not good people. Period.
