Civility means we "suck" and IEDs.


Wow, talk about "sour grapes". As I mentioned a few weeks ago, Glen Beckkk was kicked off the radio here in Philly. Well, as is to be expected from folks like Mr. Beckkk, my man is not going quietly. He took some shots at my beloved city while yapping it up with his side kicks today.

"While talking about Camden’s massive police layoffs on his radio show Tuesday, controversial commentator Glenn Beck inexplicably decided to take some pot shots at the city across the river.

Beck calls the area around Philadelphia's Independence Hall “the killing streets” and challenges his executive producer Steve “Stu” Burguiere to wear a hidden camera and walk around Independence Hall at the extremely dangerous time of 6 p.m.

While Burguiere disagrees with Beck’s bizarre assessment of Old City’s danger level, Beck keeps pushing his groundless opinion.

“The killing streets known as right there in front of Independence Hall in Philadelphia -- you know how Philadelphia is not a place you want to be,” Beck says.

“You feel really comfortable,” he says in a sarcastic tone of voice.

Burguiere continues to say that he’s never felt like he was in danger around Independence Hall or “downtown” Philadelphia.

“Don’t listen to Stu. Philadelphia sucks,” Beck says.

According to The Philly Post, Beck unleashed this tirade a day after his radio program stopped being broadcast in Philadelphia and New York City.
"

Poor Glenn, I actually feel sorry for the guy. Don't worry Glenn, at some point in our lives we have all been there: The girl who dumped us in high school wasn't all that pretty to begin with. It's called "sour grapes", and you happen to have a mouth full of it.

Sorry to break it to you Glenn, but I have lived and traveled all over the world; and Philly is right there with all of your -so called- world class cities. Great arts and culture? Check. Great access to places like New York and D.C.? Check. Access to the beach? Check. (Just an hour) Access to the mountains and skiing? Check. World class international airport? Check. Affordable housing? Check. Sport teams? Check. Great restaurants? Check......I could go on, but I think you get the idea.

Does Philly have its warts such as crime and all the other urban ills that plagues a major city? Of course it does. But so does London, Paris, New York, Madrid, and Los Angeles.

Yes I rip Philly for our murders, but I am allowed; I live here. Glenn you haven't earned the right to say s&*t about my city.--- Even though, if I am not mistaken, you got your big breakthrough in radio here. And your special needs child was given great care by our medical professionals in this city that you say "suck" while you lived here.--- But that's OK, enjoy your move to Texas. I just hope that all of your fans here remember how you gave them your ass to kiss on your way out the door. Good riddance! And may you fall off a steer and break your neck.
It's nice to see that the national media is finally catching up to the Phylicia Barnes story. (See my sidebar) She was featured on NBC World News tonight and it's about time. Phylicia is an honor student from North Carolina who went missing in Baltimore, recently. -Hmmmm, let's trade Baltimore for Aruba and we have some similarities to another case that grabbed the nations attention.- Unfortunately, the police suspect foul play, but we are all hoping that her story has a happy ending.

All I can say is thank goodness for Anthony Guglielmi of the Baltimore PD who says that race might have been a factor in the Phylicia Barnes case not getting the publicity it deserves. Better you say it than me Mr. Guglielmi. I am just a racism chaser, what do I know?

Finally, speaking of racism chasing; I see that some folks up in the great Northwest had their own little celebration planned for MLK Day:

"SPOKANE, Wash. — A backpack discovered along the route of the Martin Luther King Jr. march in Spokane contained a bomb "capable of inflicting multiple casualties," the FBI said Tuesday.

The FBI said a suspicious backpack was found about 9:25 a.m. PST on Monday on a bench at the northeast corner of North Washington Street and West Main Avenue in downtown Spokane.

A bomb disposal unit was called in and neutralized the device. The FBI said in a statement on Tuesday that "the backpack contained a potentially deadly destructive device, likely capable of inflicting multiple casualties."

The FBI has refused to discuss how the bomb was constructed.

'Suffice it to say it was of grave concern,' Frank Harrill, special agent in the charge of the Spokane FBI office, told NBC News.

"You could describe it as an improvised destructive device ... or improvised explosive device," Harrill said.

Area workers initially reported the suspicious package to Spokane police. The march was slightly re-routed and delayed because of the bomb scare.

'The three contract workers in the area who were there are unsung heroes,' the FBI spokesman said. " [Source]
I know, I know Sarah, it isn't political.

Hey, isn't Glen Beckkk from Spokane?

Beck is more of a "west cost" thing and his time slot replacement is just a local conservative that might be in the long run better for the Phila area, you know "local" radio. Even with HD radio, the internet and the Glenn Beck home page itself if you want your Beck then you can get it however before you all start giggling with glee you can still pick up Beck with in the Phila area however if your west of the Mississippi you turn on AM radio between 0900 to 1200 its most like going to be Beck (and at 1800 to 2100 you'll get Savage)

FYI: Philly isn't close to being a world class city. That is simply bullshit that you are trying to feed people who don't know.

I lived in Philly for years when the most ruthless depraved Police Chief EVER! killed, maimed, and mistreated as many Blacks as he could- and got away with it. NO ONE, and I mean NOBODY, stopped him from such abuse. AND, because he was so good at torturing, abusing and terrorizing Blacks, the Jews and Whites later elected him Mayor! His name is famous in Philly and across the nation: RIZZO.

Philadelphia is an ugly town with ugly racists combined with a sorry lot of Blacks who won't stand up for themselves politically, and as human beings deserving of respect.

The City of Brotherly Love is for Jews and Whites only, and you know it. For Blacks, it is the City of Hate and Fear.

Beck is right. That town you live in SUCKS-especially for Blacks.

But if you come from Jamaica, maybe any town in A-merry-ca looks world class to you?

The range is mostly located in the United States but extends into southeastern Canada, forming a zone from 100 to 300 miles (160 to 480 km) wide, running from the island of Newfoundland 1,500 miles (2,400 km) south-westward to central Alabama in the United States. The system is divided into a series of ranges, with the individual mountains averaging around 3,000 ft (900 m). The highest of the group is Mount Mitchell in North Carolina at 6,684 feet (2,037 m), which is the highest point in the United States east of the Mississippi River.

This change is clearly driven by radio economics. The replacements cost less than Hannity and Beck, but they also produce less ad revenue than Hannity and Beck.

Will the new arrangement at The Big Talker work? Time will tell. But most likely this move is nothing more than an attempt to forestall the sale of the station to a national network.

Meanwhile, if Philadelpia's radio market is ripe enough, Hannity and Beck will reappear on another station. That's radio.

Philadelphia's 'Big Talker' Drops Beck and Hannity for More Local Focus

WPHT/Philadelphia - The Big Talker 1210 AM - has announced a major shakeup in its programming day. The syndicated Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck officially lose their place in the station's lineup as of January 3rd.

1210 AM is importing Chris Stigall from a news-talk station in Kansas City (KCMO-AM) to do mornings from 5:30 - 9:00 a.m.

Michael Smerconish is leaving mornings to focus on his own syndicated show but will be heard later in the day.

Dom Giordano will be on from 9:00 a.m. - 12 Noon followed by Rush Limbaugh, Noon until 3 p.m.

Phylicia was last heard from Dec.28 via Facebook when she posted a note saying she was at her sister's apartment with her sister's boyfriend.

Case closed.

Congressmen Elijah Cummings of Maryland and Larry Kissell of North Carolina issued a joint statement Friday asking the public to contact Baltimore police immediately with any information about Barnes' whereabouts.

field, I thought you said the effort to find her was falling short?

"I (her mother) encouraged her to go on Facebook to look for them because she hadn't heard from that side of her family, from her father, in over eight years. And I, as a mother, didn't want my daughter not knowing who her other side of her DNA is.

Mom of the year.

I didn't want her going from man to man looking for her father in relationships, so I encouraged her to look for her half-sisters online and maybe she could find her father that way because she had't heard from him in over eight years," said Sallis.

Ah. One black woman's perspective on the impact of fatherlessness.

Her father, Russell Barnes... “I’m not ever gonna stop until I find my child,” he said. “This is the work of the devil, so we know we want the devil to release our child and bring her back to our family, and when I say our family I mean everyone, all the community.”

It takes a village...

Search for teen now includes I-95 billboards

Authorities are taking the search for a missing Monroe teen to a major interstate highway, posting the girl's photo on billboards along a heavily traveled corridor along the East Coast.

Police say billboards on Interstate 95 between Baltimore and New York City will display a photo of Phylicia Barnes

The FBI has joined the search for a 16-year-old girl who went missing while visiting family in Baltimore, police said Tuesday.

Is there any agency NOT looking for this girl?

Yes, New York City went through that phase. Dinkins was mayor and Lee Brown was police commissioner during the worst years of NY City's murder spike. Ben Ward was police commissioner before Brown.

uptownsteve said...

No slappy

You're lying again fool and I never get tired of exposing you.

The crime rate reached a peak under Koch and actually started to decline under Dinkins.

As a matter of fact a white Mayor with Dinkins accomplishments would have been reelected easily but Giuliani was able to demogogue the Crown Hts riots and scare white NY into voting for him..

"The facts are that New York homicide rates soared in the sixties from 5 per 100,000 to a peak of 30 per 100,000 in 1990. This was a upward sloping graph which had nothing to do with Dinkins. From 1960 through 1972/3 the homicide rate in New York City increased every year when Robert Wagner (1954 - 1965) and John Lindsay (1966 - 1973) were mayors, from 5 to approximately 23 per 100,000. During Mayor
Abraham Beame's term (1974 - 1977) the rate stabilised, fell slightly and rose to the levels of
his first term. But it was under Mayor Ed Koch (1978 - 1989) that the rate ran up to 26, fell back below
20, and then took off like a rocket up to 30 per 100,000 in 1990. In effect Dinkins, (1990 to 1993)
inherited a rapidly rising homocide rate and turned it around in less than one year."

Seems you misunderstood the meaning of his comment.

What's the connection between this crime and publicity? Let's pretend for a moment that there are no billboards along I-95, that two Congressmen made no public pleas, that the FBI is ignoring the case and the local law enforcement was occupied with other matters. Let's pretend. Then what?

The chief suspect is the half- sister's "boyfriend". Where is he? Why were they alone together?

This case looks like the standard murder case stemming from a fight with the "boyfriend" over sex. She refused and he killed her. Where did he dump the body? Good question.

Does anyone, including the police, believe she ran away by herself and is hiding somewhere far from home? Or that she ran off with the "boyfriend" and they are together someewhere? Or that she was abducted by a total stranger and is alive and being held against her will in some dingy basement?

Did "publicity" have any impact on the Natalie Hollaway case? She was dead hours after meeting her killer and her body has never been found. But her murderer is locked up, all as a result of police work made more complicated by the fact that her murder occurred outside the US. The fact that Hollaway's case was in the news had no bearing on the capture, prosecution and incaceration of her killer.

Meanwhile, publicity for Barnes means ONLY that the public will get another story of a young black person person murdered by another young black person.

And when the black killer is caught, the black community will ignore the latest addition to black murder statistics.

In 1990, murders in NY City peaked at 2,250, the first year of the Dinkins administration. The numbers began to drop in 1991.

If you want to claim Dinkins bears no responsibility for murders occurring on his watch, then no mayor is responsible for anything that happens while he's in office.

But let's get serious. The crime rate in NY City was driven down by a big expansion of the NYC police force and the appointments of two tough police commissioners -- Bill Bratton and Ray Kelly.

If you want to argue that Dinkins took a step in the right direction, well, okay.

But, no matter what, those of us who deal in the facts of crime know that over 90% of violent crime in NY City is committed by blacks and hispanics.

Therefore the biggest beneficiaries of lower crime rates are blacks and hispanics.

My dear Slappo, your forte is taking facts and fucking with them to match your own desired outcome. Rebutting most of the garbage you put out would take page upon page to do. I'd rather have my morning coffee.

Seriously, Slappo?

A well-to-do, photogenic young blonde-haired white girl goes missing in an exotic locale. The media lept on that and clung on for dear life. Nancy Grace milked Holloway's disappearance for all it was worth. People all over the U.S. learned her name and saw her face.

Years earlier, Jon Benet Ramsey. Photogenic young white girl with well-to-do parents goes missing. Combine that with the added urgency of her falling prey to a sex offender and the media had a ratings bonanza. People all over the U.S. learned her name and saw her face.

Phylicia Barnes, a young black woman, goes missing. I bet you 85% to 95% of the country did not know who the fuck she is or that she's missing. The media wasn't interested in jumping on the story until the blogosphere kept putting it out there little by little.

If your kid happens to be a photogenic young white girl who's missing, your chances of her picture hitting the big media outlets goes up 100-fold. If your kid happens to be black, well...unless the story is particularly heinous or if the kid happens to appear "white" enough to pass muster on the "photogenic" end, you can forget about it.

You must be a wealthy man selling all that fertilizer, Slappo, because the only thing that comes out of your mouth is bullshit.

Hold on....I thought Blacks and Hispanics' "lack of moral character" was responsible for their preponderance of criminal activity, not poverty or lack of opportunity.

mack lyons,

Natalie Hollaway was dead before anyone knew she was missing. Unless you believe "publicity" can raise the dead, your obsession with this meaningless aftermath of the crime is dumb, even for you.

Like we know OJ killed his ex-wife and Ron Goldman, we also know someone in Jon Benet Ramsay's family killed her. Either her mother or her brother. The police investigation did not eliminate them as possible killers.

In fact, in that case, if "publicity" had any impact, its impact was that it got in the way of a thorough investigation. The police were tripping over themselves dealing with the national media, a complication that benefited the killer.

The crime scene was compromised by the father who moved the girl's body. Thus, I have no doubt he knows who killed his daughter, and he had a motive to protect the two most obvious suspects.

Inasmuch as there have always been some Jewish criminals, we can say there were a few around when Jews were the leading occupants of the Lower East Side.

However, as usual, you do your Boy Scout best to prove you are determined to live in ignorance.

For whatever it's worth my paternal great-grandfather was one of those Lower East Side Jews. As informed people know, the violent crime problems within the Irish and Italian communities of NY City in the late 1800s were serious. Among Jews -- not serious.

Meanwhile, the Irish had cut a path into civil service, which included getting the teaching jobs in the city. Jews picked up on that opportunity in a hurry, going in that direction rather than into the Fire and Police departments.

Have you ever noticed there are no black graduates of NY City public schools who are today recognized as leading academics?

Anyway, inasmuch as you're desperate to find some bad Jews, you should look into the US history for a few examples.

What will you find? Murderers? A handful. Financial schemers? A bunch.

IN any case, when you argue about current issues but all the facts put you in a losing position, you do the usual black thing of getting in your time machine so you can say "Yeah, well, your guys were the bad guys 125 years ago."

Ahh. Birmingham, Another classic example of what happens to a city when Blacks are the majority and become leaders.

Birmingham is a city that once had a thriving business sector, though almost all Fortune 500 companies have moved their company headquarters out of the town. The city school system, nearly 100 percent Black, faces a $30 million budget shortfall.

The Civil Rights victory signaled the abandonment of Birmingham to the victors. The spoils were short lived.

I sometimes wonder if other morons like Rodney get the idea that they too might win at Cop Lotto. Take a punch. Collect $3 million.

The Crouches’ perfect batting average represents a first for Yale — the first time in anyone’s memory that it has offered admission to quadruplets. It is also, of course, no small milestone for the siblings, who were born more than two months premature. (Ray was the last to be released from the neonatal unit, more than four months later.)

They made up for that rough start. Their class rankings range from 13 out of a class of 632 (Kenny) to 46 (Martina) — and they have sky-high SAT scores (including Carol’s perfect 800 on the verbal part of that exam).

OJ only guilty if you beleeve. Time frame was off...city driving and all. What about Ron G's 'friends' in the drug biz? How did a very injured NFL star take out two adults? OJ was the meal ticket for the wife's family...and some reports indicated that free money was soon to end.
Why must it be the butler/Jew/AfAm that is guilty?

UTS, the jury looked at evidence and acquitted. Maybe it was Rodney's driving...or his resisting arrest...or that the entire recording was shown.

Hollaway's killer didn't have daddykins to cover up the evidence anymore.
Ramsey case makes me think of the creep who kidnapped the 14 yo child and then faked crazy to avoid punishment.

You've identified five smart black kids. Hardly matters. And Yale, like every Ivy League school, can admit students on any basis it likes, which means the school can decide to get cutely whimsical and admit all four of the the quadruplets because it knows the act will remain in the public sphere forever.

The issue with blacks and formal education is the fact that so few blacks get one.

You're like every other nitwit who claims that four blacks going to Yale is as significant as every black graduating from high school. Actually, your concern for this aberration suggests you think it's MORE important than the academic fortunes of all other blacks.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the "evidence" was a beating on videotape.

Somehow we didn't hear shit about "jury nullification" or "white solidarity" with the Simi Valley jury.

"And despite the fact that Rodney's injuries were relatively minor (broken nose and other non-serious injuries) blacks went into a full-scale riot and destroyed South Central, a rampage that led to a number of deaths and the near-fatal beating of Reginald Denny."

More latinos were arrested for the 1992 riots than blacks.

Khadijah Williams stepped into chemistry class and instantly tuned out the commotion.

She walked past students laughing, gossiping, napping and combing one another's hair. Past a cellphone blaring rap songs. And past a substitute teacher sitting in a near-daze.

Quietly, the 18-year-old settled into an empty table, flipped open her physics book and focused. Nothing mattered now except homework.



"No wonder you're going to Harvard," a girl teased her.

Around here, Khadijah is known as "Harvard girl," the "smart girl" and the girl with the contagious smile who landed at Jefferson High School only 18 months ago.

AB, dont you get it? You have to keep pulling out exceptions to the rule. Of course with millions of U.S. advantaged Blacks, some will get an education and few tokens who "act white" and study, make it.

What I find ridiculous and even sadder testimony to the state of Blacks in the U.S, is how with all the programs and funding and hedged points and admittance waivers, there aren't more and more educated Blacks. Well, unfortunately a HS dropout rate ranging from 40-52% in some cases will cut short an educational run.

When one of these Blacks actually turns into a leader and revives one of the cities that became decrepit once handed over to Black Run Leadership. Then I will be impressed. Until then, we continue to have decline wherever Blacks become the majority. That is a fact.

UTS, the Rodney King tape showed a person resisting arrest. Just because the MSM did an edit job that pretended he was getting a 'beat down' is no reason to assume the Simi Valley jury gave the police a pass on violence.
The MSM tape looks like the police pulled a DWB motorist over and began beating him. The entire tape shows another story.
Oh, I have seen the police use wire-wrapped truncheons on white college boys...so it isn't 'a Black thing'.

What up Field you know I really like Philly for some of the reasons you mentioned. But my praise for any US city or city under Imperialism is tempered by the conditions of the poor in those cities.

From what I can tell there are two Phillys a poor one and a middle class to upper class one. And there are two black Phillys the one where you live and where many Blacks flourish and the neighborhoods where folks aren't doing so well and where you can get shot for a dollar or disrespecting some poor cat who feels like respect is all he has in the world.

Field I am reading some amazing history about the Sharecroppers Union and the Souther Tenant Farmers Union. This history tells of how poor black and white sharecroppers tried to organize to better their conditions.

Check out the "Elaine Massacre" in Arkansas (they are still embarassed about this one) and the Claude Neal incident in Marianna Florida around 1919. Just google them its guaranteed to make your hair stand on end. These pieces of US history are just horrific.

The terror and hatred visited upon both groups is a documented but well hidden history. Workers were murdered for union organizing. Sometimes workers who tried to strike were locked up for vagrancy or even lead back into the fields at gun point.

What we know as modern America was bought at a horrific and bloody price. And that continues to some extent to this day in the relationship of the undeveloped(physically,economically) and the developed (physically, econcomically) world.

And whoever keeps saying that the history of workers and blacks is told in history books is just lying. I have looked at many and they seldom tell the story of the re-enslavement of blacks at the turn of the 19th century and early 20th century and the attempts to enslave white sharecroppers and farmers.

Steve you probably figured out that arguing with folks who think that you and everyone who looks like you is a waste of time, and time is precious my friend.

In an earlier thread you tried unsuccessfully to point out that the way Jews were able to escape the extreme hatred that many American whites had for them was by pretending to be white.


The Jewish fella played you off but you were exactly right many Jews changed their sir names and many others simply denied their heritage when they could and found it convenient to check the white box.

Truth is most folks don't know a Jew from a Caucasion. I noticed that many black folks definitely don't distinguish because unfortunately too many of them are indifferent to the plight of black folks and other people of color and some of them actively discriminate and denigrate blacks and people of color.

Anyway Steve you got to read "How the Irish became White by Noel Ignatiev. It explains how every immigrant group escaped its second class status by joining in with anti-black prejudice.

This book puts to rest many of the silly and misguided conversations that occur on this blog.

And David Roedigers, "Working toward Whiteness;HOw America's Immigrants became White:The Strange Journey from Ellis Island to the Suburbs" will also blow your mind.

Anyone who wants real answers about how their particular European immigrant group escaped second class status and prejudice has to read this book.

It also helps one understand why capitalism has to have racism or scapegoats.

Yeah Steve it ain't all about race its also about class. That's another discussion.

uptownsteve said...

"Anyway Steve you got to read "How the Irish became White by Noel Ignatiev. It explains how every immigrant group escaped its second class status by joining in with anti-black prejudice."

Already did, about 10 years ago.

You should also read "When Affirmative Action was White" and "Broken Rear Windows" which detail how the white urban ethnic and the southern white had their skids greased by the US Government to middle class status with 0% interest housing and education loans after WWII that were unavailable to black folks.

"It explains how every immigrant group escaped its second class status by joining in with anti-black prejudice"


Every immigrant group escaped second class status by joining in the larger culture. Even though blacks had a large part in creating that culture, they were denied full membership until the 1960's.

What are the barriers today? Yes there are still whites who don't want to be around blacks, but there is also a strong negative influence from liberal multiculturalism and black separatism that encourages blacks to hold back. There is a very strong cultural insularity in American blacks. Once blacks internalize the concept that they are Americans of African descent instead of African Americans, the self-imposed barriers will fall away.

The Jewish fella played you off but you were exactly right many Jews changed their sir names and many others simply denied their heritage when they could and found it convenient to check the white box.

Yeah. You're a genius.

Truth is most folks don't know a Jew from a Caucasion.

What are the signs? How can you tell a Jew from a Caucasion?

Good question Jim but as a person who sees himself as Black long before I identify myself as an American I have done quite well for myself as have many of my Black friends and family. This whole trying to mainstream Black people or paint us as other has been going on for years. We act as though all whites are PhD's with six fugure salaries. See the example our resident troll created as if there are no academics from the NYC public school system. None? i'm sure a call or google search would produce evidence of such.
Sorry Jim but your hypothesis contains some obvious flaws. Black people have been in the mainstream of Amerikkka for years and many of our efforts have been damaged by institutional racism. Google reconstruction and the Tulsa riots for evidence of such actions and also look at Steve's post that outlines the 0% interest loans and government help given to whites and with held from people of color and we still made progress despite these obstacles. We have to ask ourselves where would this country be if white's had the same resistance we faced and if we faced the same benelovence white people got in the past.

For examples of Black scholarship we need only to look at the thousands of Black college grads every year. Our HBCU's and non-HBCU's produce doctors, lawyers, engineers, teachers, pilots, ect. We only see what we focus on. If someone doesn't want to see Black achievement they won't plain and simply.

"Hey, isn't Glen Beckkk from Spokane?"

No. Fuck no. He grew up in Mount Vernon, a nice little(ish) town between Seattle and Bellingham. Spokane's on the other side of the state, near the Idaho border. We "dry sider's" (i.e. east of the Cascade Mountains, aka redneckistan) have enough to contend with and certainly make no claim to that no talent ass clown.

@ Steve, I have to check out those books. It is important that we understand what influence white AA has had on this country. In my industry it was abundantly clear how this game worked, for decades people of color were excluded from certain jobs while only white males were hired. This meant that 100% of white males were hired while 100% of people of color and women were excluded. Fast forward a few decades when there was a push to encourage more diversity but 85% of people being hired were white males and they screamed bloody murder that somehow they were being somehow discriminated against. That is some real hutzpah (sp?.

The Baltimore Police spokesperson also stated that he and the homicide commander were set to go on Nancy Grace and then were bumped off the show for an hour long report on the white cheerleader in Texas who is missing. I decided to check the transcripts of Nancy Graces show and she did no less than seven reports on the same Texas teen and did not reschedule anyone to discuss Phylicia Barnes who is from my neck of the woods in North Carolina.

You know slappy, you really crack me up.

I should'nt allow myself to get into these Jews vs black spats with you because growing up most of my white friends were Jewish.

They were generally the coolest and most non racist white folks I knew.

But guys like you are the ones who give Farrakhan and Quannell X fodder for their anti-semitic diatribes.

You are obviously trying to get your "white guy" card punched with you incessant demonization of blacks.

The Jews I knew and befriend identified with being unfairly stereotyped because of their history.

You run away from that nobility by being a petty racist.

Shame.
