    Your also not 12/13 years old acting like an animal and being defended by people that have done nothing but go to school and write books that have no basis in reality

    Just the opposite is what is true.
    Nobody that is white and has a brain, looks to verbally attack someone who is black. That's typically a losing proposition.

    It's called playing the race card. We've seen it for decades now, and it's really ran it's course. Sheila Jackson Lee looks like the asshat for what she did, so she flopped down the race card as her defense.

    That is her only defense
    Act like an asshat
    Get called out on it
    Cry racism

    They have cried wolf so much that when real wolves show up its ignored
    (Wolves representing racism not a attack on wolves or the wolf population)

    People like this Lee woman view view us as their subjects not American citizens.
    I despise that attitude in politicians but I guess that’s probably racist too.

    It doesn't matter what a POS like Sheila Jackson Lee does, the useful idiots in their party will still defend her actions. (That's why :shit: bags like her operate the way they do.)

    I would tend to disagree.

    Although I admit I do still have some racist feeling, as I believe most people do.

    For example, there was a recent mass murder in upstate NY recently. Based on the details, I wasn't surprised at all when they arrested two Black ex-cons for the crime.

    If I truly was void of all racism, I wouldn't presuppose the race of the assailants.

    Another example is when I find myself in a largely Black neighborhood, I find myself assuming that the reason there are so many people on the street in the daytime is that they don't want to work. In a White neighborhood, I'm more likely to assume people on the street are working in some capacity, or are employed on a night shift.

    One more, I was recently in the apartment of a Black woman (no hanky panky). She was listening to Joan Jett on the radio. I would have assumed she preferred Beyonce, based only on the color of her skin.

    Although I do have these racist tendencies, I do my absolute best not the let them interfere with the way I interact with minorities. I try to treat everyone equally.

    I think that we all try to treat people equally. I don't acknowledge the skin color so much, I acknowledge the behaviors.
    If the democrats would stop with the racebaiting crap all of the time, some of those obvious prejudices could dissolve quicker. But divisive politics is all they really have left, so they never will.
    The Democrats are the only ones that fuel the racial divide.

    Yep. Same here.
    When they bust out the race card you know that they've been busted because they have no other defense for their actions.

    It seems to help their un-informed constituents keep voting for them...

    It's definitely exaggerated, that's true, in my opinion.

    But that doesn't mean it's nonexistent.

    No, the odds are that it would have been a White man.

    White men commit the majority of the violent crime in this country (although Blacks do commit a disproportionate amount), especially mass murders.

    It was my prejudicial thinking that made me assume it was a Black man.

    We all agree that there more than enough examples of true racism, but flopping down the race card when an issue has nothing to do with race has devalued the real cases of racism, so now nobody listens to any of those claims.

    Claiming racism when it isn't, is never cool either.
    And most of us are sick of it.
