    Or, is being a racist acceptable as another diverse opinion or point of view? Those who appeal to diversity and tolerance should accept it as another view contrary to their own and move on, right?

    Like I wrote before, you can be a racist, BUT before you jump on that train, be warned, it's not the most desirable way of relating to other humans. Racism isn't just another view or opinion, it's a life choice.
    There are organizations a racist can join that would support their views and even cause a feeling of superiority. These organizations can range from the "good ol boys club" to some that are secret. They are there to make a racist feel normal and even better than normal. With their rhetoric, racism feels strong, natural, and righteous.
    But it comes with a price if we accept that we are to grow spiritually or even that we want to leave this world a bit better.

    We are stuck in a way with our attitudes. We learn from experiences by how we interpret them. We have little ability to do much about them except with a struggle.
    So why fight what we are internally. Because hate destroys us from the inside out.
    Hate is fear based.
    What would I expect from a racist as far as changing their attitude? Probably nothing because of how hard it is to overcome everything we are internally.
    Everyone that professes to not be a racist I can't always believe because it's really close to the other side of the coin. Probably a truly non-racist person might just be confused about what all the fuss is about.

    Is it OK to be an equal opportunity racist? I'm convinced almost all of us go through most days without thinking of race or racism one time. The only organized racism I have seen for several years has come from non-whites.

    I am not racist as far as I can tell. I just started this post because I have been called racist by others, I guess because I am white and that must make me racist. Or, perhaps just because I am for a controlled southern border.

    If you don't want open borders, then you must be a racist.

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Well I'll admit I was raised as Southern rebel ready to defend our segregated way of life and considered that normal at the time time.

    Went to all White schools, restrooms, water fountains, restaurants, etc. back in the day. We all (Whites) felt the same back then.

    Well things sure have changed. Never dated a Black gal nor ever would.

    I have Black friends however both men and women so I don't consider my self racist anymore.

    Yeah all gone with the wind so to speak. Yeah let's all sing "Dixie" now. LOL. Thank you, thank you very much

    Perfectly.

    FYI the legendary great actor John Wayne is under attack on twitter for what he said almost 50 years ago. The PC liberals are on a campaign to trash all our famous icons of the past.

    John Wayne’s infamous, racially charged 1971 Playboy interview, during which he observed, “I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility.”

    Your wouldn't want to hear what I was saying or thinking 50 years ago. No one is spared the attack by the rabid left zealots on their campaign to destroy our culture and morals.

    Today the Democrats are the biggest evil our country has ever seen IMHO. Thank you, thank you very much
