What is that huge racism problem? That some people don't want to follow the rules and do what it takes to get ahead in society?

This is not the Soviet Union. Nobody is stopping any of you from leaving and going somewhere more to your liking or more hospitable to you.

Makes you wonder if we aren't the evil empire. We certainly are these days.

You really should read more or something.
A tiny, completely irrelevant communist party existing in America doesn't make the US communist or that it has a communist system, and I can't believe I have to say as much. There are tons of parties like that. Did you know, for example, that there is a Prohibition Party still? How big and influential is the prohibition movement in America 90 years after it ended?

You still haven't given any specific examples of how the actual system in place is communist. Fearmongering about immigrants is not an example of that.

Thinking only non-white people commit crime or that skin color makes people more violent is certainly racist. So is fearmongering about immigrants.

So what if I'm racist? Who are you to decide what is and isn't a thought crime? If I want to live in a white neighborhood with other whites, that's my business, isn't it? If too many blacks move into my neighborhood and I want to move 20 miles further out where I can live among my own kind and where I can feel comfortable and at home, why shouldn't I be able to?

And once POC's move into an area and crime goes through the roof, you're not going to shut me up when it comes to pointing out the cause and effect. That crime wasn't there when whites were in the area and it practically always goes up when POC's move in. The statistics are irrefutable.

It's not a crime to be racist, thought or otherwise. It is an indication of a person's poor moral character and lack of ability to logically reason. After all, you're literally arguing that superficial characteristics like skin color- which is essentially only a genetic level of melanin- determine whether a person is more dangerous or more prone to criminality. It's irrational and embarrassing to hold such views, at best, especially in an age where we absolutely know better. It's like if I thought all white people were genetically prone to welfare (most US citizens on welfare are white, after all), being Karens, and liking Jimmy Buffet. It's such a stupid, worthless way to live and think.

They're actually quite refutable. Economic status and education are the main determiners in one's likelihood for criminal behavior, not race.

Statistics don't lie, Jack. Blacks are 13% of the population and commit 52% of murders! You're actually pretty stupid if you don't act on information that is readily available.

It's not my job to sacrifice myself for my family or the things I work hard for just because certain people have this warp notion of kumbaya.

That's all very ecumenical and open-minded and all, but it's not reality. The reality is that white flight is caused by the quality of life going down where you live now.

I was at the Reynoldsburg Library this evening just to check out the new building. Kids running around, everybody talking, loud in there. Yes, it was a predominantly black crowd. Does anybody teach these people appropriate behavior?

That was the first and it will be the last time I ever go there.

I don't know if I'm racist or not, but I do know what annoys me and little kids running around screaming in a library is one of them. I don't see this at the Gahanna branch.
