Bizarre interpretation of the original post in its entirety? Of course it is. Try reading it. It's pretty much a no brainer as to what the intent was. Post #70 sums it up quite nicely.

In fact, it's the opposite with affirmative action, quotas, racial preferences, bonus SAT points for college admision.

Now, which races hate which races? Would hate crime data be an indication? What about interracial crime?
In the FBI’s 2017 hate crimes report, blacks are overrepresented as offenders. They account for 26.1 percent of those cases in which the race of the perpetrator was known, meaning that blacks were 2.4 times more likely than non-blacks to commit hate crimes.
Of the approximately 1,700,000 interracial crimes of violence involving blacks and whites, 90 percent are committed by blacks against whites.
Blacks are therefore up to 250 times more likely to do criminal violence to whites than the reverse.
Hispanics commit violent crimes at approximately three times the white rate. Hispanics are a hate crime victim category but not a perpetrator category. Hispanic offenders are classified as whites, which inflates the white offense rate and gives the impression that Hispanics commit no hate crimes.
Please stop it, this is just more racist screed. Whether or not you are a racist is not for me to decide but you manage to insert many fabricated or exaggerated statistics into nearly all of your posts to show that ethnic minorities are not as smart, clever, honest or special as white folk. (you even admitted using fake metrics several days ago, remember?

You post FBI statistics and then misquote them, claiming that it says that 26.1% of the perpetrators of hate crimes were black when the link clearly shows that number to be 21.3%. Why lie about something that you posted a link to? Not to mention how curious it is that you failed to mention that 48.6% of all hate crimes are perpetrated by offenders with an anti-black bias.

Then in the same paragraph you quote some nonsense bout 90% of interracial crimes being committed by blacks, it's clear that you were trying to make people think that data was from the FBI, but it's actually a cut /paste from a 1999 publication put out by the "New Century Foundation" a racist organization Founded by Jared Taylor who in 2005 said:

“Blacks and whites are different. When blacks are left entirely to their own devices, Western civilization — any kind of civilization — disappears.”

It seems that the last two 'tidbits' of information also came from the same source, the "New Century Foundation" No source for it in their magazine, just foul made up crap designed to stir up racial animus.

You sir should be ashamed.
Charges of racism are not a form of debate; they are meant to silence debate. Accusations of racism are often transparent attempts to choke off honest discussion.

It's not racist if it is fact based. All those data points are legitimate.

No sir, they are not legitimate, and I was very careful to make that clear. And I don't think there should be any place in these forums for racism and apparently the moderators of this forum agree with me:

They can, and many are, but almost always to their disadvantage in the end. On the other side of color line, the practice of racism by a racist can work very well in one's favor as long as they are clever in going about it.

Screenwriter, I'm in Kentucky and have never been to California, but saw your thread posted on the main page. There is a man who lived here in Kentucky, moved to California, but kept posting on Kentucky berating just about everything that anything mentioned. He's nothing but the poster child for Preparation H. It wouldn't surprise me if this is the same person you're talking about. He changed his name 2 or 3 times in the Kentucky threads. If it's the same person, you have my sympathies, but we don't want him back!

Where in the heck did you get that idea or meaning of racism? It certainly was not from the dictionary. Racism to most of us, is any group of one person who thinks another group or one person is below them or should not have the same rights as they have. I have known many minority people who are every bit as racist as majority groups of people. When you judge someone based on their color, religion, sexual orientation or gender you are a racist or bigot if you would rather use another term.

I will add however, this post has sure taken on new meaning from what the OP posted. BTW where is the OP looks like they have vanished. Well not vanished but vanished from the thread. They are posting elsewhere

I post here because we're relocating to the area and want more information before we make the big move. I often post to other forums in states I'd once considered but rarely to my home state.
Because many of us still have friends and/or family there and have an interest in the state. Some have property.
