    pgson,

    “Since having a white only college would be automatically racist, then having a continuing, “historic” black college in this day and age is ALSO racist.”

    Yes, having a college that is “whites-only” would be racist, but a historically black college is not “blacks only.” In fact, the undergraduate population of FSU, the school that cknapp is ranting about, is 65% black and 17.5% white. So, again, it’s not blacks only. So what are you talking about?

    How exactly is a “historically black college” racist? Historically black colleges were created so that blacks could have an opportunity for a college education when other colleges refused to admit them. Why wouldn’t a college be proud of that kind of legacy?
    The vast majority of colleges in this country are “historically white.” No, they don’t advertise it, but why would they? They were historical white because often only white people were admitted. Blacks, Asians and Latinos were often actively discriminated against. It’s a fact in many colleges’ histories, but you would be hard-pressed to find a college that wants to brag about it.

    He was a pitcher in the AL. He didn’t knock anything out of the park.

    DT,

    “maybe you should repent and look to the prince of peace.”
    And you would insist on this for Jewish immigrants as well?

  • August 7, 2016 at 9:04am

    The way they used to be? Like when the US rejected Jews fleeing from Nazi Germany?

    Just say it. Just say that the US was right to reject those who would be the victims of the Holocaust. That’s the kind of America you want. Be honest.

    Christie’s audition for AG was him appealing to a mob to condemn someone for a crime without due process? That is the definition of lynch law.

    It’s not the statistics that people are contesting, it’s the interpretation of them.

    In 2013, 13 Americans total were killed in terrorist attacks, while 2,509 white people were killed by other white people (83%). I guess that means white people shouldn’t allowed to condemn terrorism until they solve the problem of white-on-white crime.

    Your solution:
    Show them a poisoned apple, and have them assume that all apples are poisonous.

    Yes, there were some Jews who didn’t realize that the fear-mongering and scapegoating of their faith and identity would result in a loss of their civil rights and eventual mass extermination. I’m also sure that there were many Germans who strongly believed that their fear, paranoia and hatred of Jews were justified because of some vast Jewish conspiracy against Germany.

    Perhaps we can avoid repeating history by not scapegoating the faith of millions of good, loyal Americans.

    What percentage. Tell me what percentage of undocumented immigrants here are committing criminal offenses not related to their immigration status (which is not a criminal offense). Go ahead: what percentage is high enough to justify you smearing millions of men, women and children who are just here to make a better life for themselves? Tell me exactly why you are so afraid of the hard-working people that contribute and even sustain many sectors of the economy.

    I say it again: you are a coward.

    Bigun,
    And tell me where the Constitution defines who is and isn’t a legal immigrant? Tell me where in the Constitution are undocumented immigrants prohibited from earning their citizenship?
    Please, provide those citations for me.

  • [-1] June 5, 2016 at 11:26am

    And what exactly do YOU think defines an “American”?

  • [-5] June 5, 2016 at 11:25am

    There is no invading army. You’re a special kind of coward to be so afraid of men, women and children here to make a better life for themselves.

    AllPeopleFreePeople,
    I suggest that if you want to support Trump, you’ll take the MLK image off your profile. Trump is anathema to everything MLK stood for.

    And what did you do to earn YOUR citizenship?
    I have known undocumented workers that were the most kind, gentle and hardworking people I have ever met. I have known undocumented workers who just want to work hard for their families and their communities. They have sacrificed EVERYTHING to live a better life and to give their children better opportunities.

    And what have YOU done?

  • [-5] June 5, 2016 at 9:11am

    You’re full of nonsense. I wonder how many Hispanic Americans you have actually sat down with and had a conversation with. Show some empathy, and don’t just gobble up all the hate fed to you by your preferred propaganda.

  • [-2] June 5, 2016 at 9:10am

    No, Trump does not “put Americans first.” He deliberately attacks loyal, patriotic American Muslims and Hispanics to satisfy the worst, most racist impulses of SOME Americans.

  • [-7] June 5, 2016 at 9:06am

    No, you are not “at war for America.” Your fellow Americans, who have honest disagreements with you about governing philosophy, the roles of government, etc., are not your enemy. Let’s not pretend that you are some brave partisan fighting for the soul of America–I have as much right to claim America as you do. Democrats, Hispanic Americans, African Americans, liberals, and yes, even socialists, have as much a claim to America as you do.
