My point? It really doesn't matter what race you are. Lower class habits are lower class habits. And that transcends race.
Yes, it does transcend race. Absolutely.

Trashy behavior is trashy behavior, no matter what you look like.

And yes, everyone with the means to do so is trying to distance themselves from trashy behavior, or worse, criminal behavior. Regardless of your ethic background.

The only problem is that she is a racist!

Yet all forms of mainstream media and entertainment tends to lump all blacks and a few other minorities together - as all trashy and all criminals. Anyone not trashy or criminal but higher income is portrayed as intimidating, egregious, lewd, or some other sort of sensational and unlikable character flaw. The minority as 'just a regular guy like you and me' never comes to the table. People believe what they see.

The old lady in Marysville was most likely saying what will get her votes in her town. Glad our presidents don't do that.

Diversity doesn't work. Integration doesn't work. Segregation doesn't work.

Live in an white town = they all fight among themselves. White kids all fight other white kids and steal from old white people.

Live in all black town = they all fight among themselves. Black kids all fight other black kids and steal from old black people.

Brown people - yellow people - red people - what else we got ?

Mixed town - not going to type it out... (same as above)

I don't think it is a racial thing. That's just a convenient excuse. I'm convinced it's more like a Human thing.

Maybe some day in the future, far, far away in some distant galaxy. But after reading through these posts. It looks like it will be awhile.

Until the left starts making a stink against the anti-gentrification cries (which are pretty openly anti-white gentrification cries) or until the left starts complaining about racially segregated dormitories for black and Latino students on college campuses, don't come to me about anything else. I'm tired of the hypocrisy.

Why is everyone speaking in generalities? There are some White people I wouldn't want for neighbors, and there are some Black people I wouldn't want for neighbors. We've had both races living next to us at various times in our lives. Our preference is having an older couple of any race living next to us, vs. some young drug addicts of any race.

Default City council canidate says "keep city as white as possible"

She also made comments concerning inter-racial dating. This way of thinking is nothing new. What NEW is the fact that she free expressed it in this era......AND.......here is the kicker. She does not see herself as a "racist"!!!!


The right will narrate that the term racism and racist gets falsely applied. However, they ignore that that its just as common for the label racism and racist is falsely denied. Almost no one will self describe themselves or admit that their motive was racist.

Absolutely, the maniac’s campaign to keep the country as white as possible has allowed people with sentiments like this to feel comfortable expressing them. This is the lasting harm we will feel from the maniac’s term even after he is gone.

How is she any different than all the libs who say that some candidates are "too white" or talk about "white supremacism"?

Racism has always been around. Why do you think people move to where there are "the same" and like minded? Every city has hoods with people that speak the same language and look closely alike. They are free to do it to. This isn't news unless you just came out of a coma.
