Although I may not agree with the way that the OP went about making his point, the issue he raises is a valid one. There is an extremely disturbing trend taking hold in America: Underducated-White-Right-Wing-Ethnocentrists who get all of their news from Glen Beck or Sean Hannity and swallow it hook, line, and sinker. Masses of brainwashed voters:

Are any of you good ole boys on the "black thug culture is destroying the black race" thread decrying the sterotyping over there???


Of course not! You're hypocrites as well!
For one, I ain't black, so that thread ain't any of my business. How can I speak on a subject that I cannot be personally acquainted with?

No, it's those political and social viewpoints of Rural and Southern whites that are destroying the white culture much like the Thug Culture is destroying the black culture.

He's telling you like it is. This anti-intellectualism fad on the part of the Right is killing you.

Barry Goldwater and William F Buckley tried to warn you.

I agree wholeheartedly with your point and the example you showed. It's a disturbing and destructive trend that is continuing to grow. It's the White version of a thug or street culture.

How is that prejudice? This is a socioeconomic phenomeonon. The thug and ghetto culture is affecting African Americans and many African Americans will attest to that and admit it. Thug and ghetto is not the same as hip hop culture. Nonetheless, it was a nice attempt at trying to discredit me but proved weak nonetheless. Likewise many whites feel that this ultra right wing White conservative culture is radical and is mostly found in the South and rural areas all over the country

I love the double standard. So you aren't being racist when you criticize African Americans for their socieconomic ills and mindset affilated with the street or thug culture. Yet when the same is applied to Rural and Southern Whites and their similarly destructive views, you claim to be discriminated against.
