But for you to single out white people as the main reason for Mississippi's lagging economic standing is way off base.

Speaking of, Baltimore is an example of childish liberalism-socialism run amok. It is a failed city, run not by whites. Whites have abandoned it. It is a once great city that is now run by reactionary public opinion. Basically, justice by Facebook and Twitter feeds. Welcome to the liberal future.
First off the bat have you ever even been to Baltimore Maryland.... teakboat yea or nay yes or no??/!!

Well yes I have teakboat and let a MAN who have actually been there tell you a bit about Baltimore.

The Majority of Baltimore has gone down the toilet , but the Minority which is left behind is still enough
to make BALTIMORE A WORLD CLASS CITY....Oklahoma City is NOT A WORLD CLASS CITY neither is
TULSA OKLAHOMA and to add insult to pain you can not find me a single city in MIS........... that would
be classified as a world class city now can you(?)....

I'm passive aggressive against the great state of MIS.................. because it is the most conservative
and racist state in the union , however when I lived there I never had a racist encounter or act directed
toward me. That bodes good for the state as far as howest2008 is concern , but not so good for the other
great AA of MIS............. who live and work there every day and love it with all of theirs heart. The (AA)
African American who actually live in MIS........... are the Salt of the Earth they actually Love Whites Who Murder Family Members because of the color of theirs skin and are in constant Denial of allowing them all of theirs Civil Rights. Mr. Teakboat how many time have you seen African American Riot in the great state of MIS.................... I'm waiting for a answer???!!!!

I singled out Mississippi because of a internet poster who stated that liberal locates are dumps , and that conservative locates are all located in the land of milk and honey , well then MISSISSIPPI should be HEAVEN then , right Mr. Teakboat agreed let's bury the battle axe okie dokie???!!!!

I wonder if I ever heard someone from the great state of Mississippi say that the only thing holding Mississippi back were AA hummmmmmmmmmmm.

LOL!

OMG! See Howest? Let that be a lesson to you. When a city or country is run by whites everything is right in the world.

I agree with teakboat and many others of all races that the inexcusable behavior of the majority of the rioters in Baltimore who looted, burned, were in general idiots! Criminals who saw an opportunity to rob, steal, and destroy other people's property. But the core reason for rioting in the first place was due to generations of oppression.

Am I excusing the behavior or minimizing it? No. But I have an insight that teakboat doesn't have and that is my own personal experience with bigotry.

My parents and grandparents are hard working christians who don't drink, worked hard all their lives and never broke the laws. Yet I watched them get treated like SH*T by the majority of white folks in town, every time we went to town. The bank, the grocery store, the laundry mat, every where we went, it was this horrible contempt aimed at us. Why? Simply because we are Native American. Thank my blue-eyed god there was one store on the edge of town that was owned by a white man who did not treat NDN's like SH*T.

Try living through that treatment year after year after year, generation after generation. And it is NOT in the past. I have been denied service twice in my life. Sad, but true. OMG, and it was in a town run by whites!!! <sarcasm>

Protesting against a long history of blatant racism may be childish liberalism socialism to you, but in my opinion if you have a country that has a long history of treating people like SH due to their race, then you reap what you sow.

And no, I am not defending wanton destruction or looting.

It reminds me of a story where an advertisement showed a black woman in a swimming pool. After the ad photographs were taken, the whites drained the pool. Does it happen now? No! NEVER!
https://www.washingtonpost.com/poste...acist-history/

http://www.omgfacts.com/lists/12534/...-black-ab630-0

It pretty sad when humans hate other humans so bad, they insist upon changing the water in a swimming pool because one person from another race was in it for a few minutes! That is a microcosm of a horrible mindset.

And yes, Teakboat, I have lots of white friends. That may be a tired line to you, but it is how my life is, so sorry if that "tired old line" offends you.

Well, since I guess since we're are not being cynical about it, I have lots of black friends. And as a business owner, I would hire any black man who I believed would help me make money. No actual racism here up to a point. But I have noticed that it seems to be cool and automatic to mock or hate on white people these days. I am tired of seeing it.

I deal mainly with white people in my day to day life. And I hear almost zero, candid racist remarks from any of them. So there is no giant white conspiracy against black people as far as I am aware. Or at least I did not receive that fax memo from the white race headquarters.

Sorry, I could not find my source.

Oh well. The point I was making was some people seem unable or unwilling to understand where so much anger comes from that incites a riot. When people are unable to right what they feel is wrong for so many years, rioting is their perceived way to express that anger and frustration, etc. It is not a cop out, because many try and use legal means to right perceived wrongs (racism). When that fails, you get riots. Maybe the 1776 rebellion against the mother country rings a bell?

"Cole learned his lesson the night a Strip doorman turned him away. “But that’s Nat King Cole,” his white companion said.

“I don’t care if he’s Jesus Christ,” said the doorman. “He’s a n-----, and he stays out.”

Lena Horne was the exception who proved the rule. A favorite of Bugsy Siegel, the gorgeous torch singer was allowed to stay at the Flamingo as long as she steered clear of the casino, restaurants and other public areas. When she checked out, her bedsheets and towels were burned."

These are historical examples, but the hatred for blacks is still here in America. And it has gotten old.

News flash. People did not just wake up one day and say, hey-let's mock or hate on whitey today!!



There is a REASON, a justifiable reason for the mocking and hatred. Am I getting through to you at all? Some folks do not hate other races and sadly, they are in the minority.

Try reading a book called Black Like Me. It's about a white man who made himself look black and then took a bus across the south. Read it, for it is enlightening.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Like_Me

The reverse is also true, so don't think I am saying there is no racism amongst all other races. <I knew you were going there next!>

Personally, I think it is the human brain that categorizes everything into black/white, good/bad, us/them, liberal/conservative. I just think some people never rise above that. Mea culpa. I have to admit, I am included. I just try and stop myself when I feel hatred for no reason.

Here is an excerpt. Please read this short excerpt and then ask yourself, like the author did, why have they (bigoted people) dehumanized themselves?

It's ironic that you see "that it seems to be cool and automatic to mock or hate on white people these days" when a lot of black people are accused of "seeing racism when racism isn't there"

I certainly don't see any mocking or hating on white people from my view.

And as far as your black friends. Have you ever asked them about their experiences regarding racism?

I've read many books in my life and Black Like Me is one of the most memorable.
