First and foremost, when i looked at the post, i thought,, cool- a pooch having fun in the snow. No i didnt think a BLACK dog in front of the whitehouse meant ANYTHING whatsoever, and my favorite dogs are BLACK LABS.

But when you see Obama do you think BLACK PRESIDENT? Nobody accused you of being biased in regards to the color of a dog's coat.

Sigh - it really isn't a matter of what you'll 'accept'. Dude, you seriously need to move somewhere whitey'er, you know like northern New Hampshire.

Inept compared to Snatch or Romney? hahahahaaaaa... Ron, I hope we never meet... I enjoy the mental picture I have of you as a good ol' desert rat who just says stuff to get people riled up but has way too much experience to honestly believe that crap.

inept

 1. without skill or aptitude for a particular task or assignment; maladroit: He is inept at mechanical tasks. She is inept at dealing with people.
2. generally awkward or clumsy; haplessly incompetent.
3. inappropriate; unsuitable; out of place.
4. absurd or foolish: an inept remark.

 tell me this isn't your view of all non-white folks.

If you were at all critical you'd know that this president is magnitudes more equipped for the job than anyone in the buche administration.

It takes a real troll to post up this thread.

When we invite throngs from third world countries, many of those habits come with them. The degradation of many a neighborhood has been the result.

Kinda like when all them dirty wops piled into New York. Or the polacks and krauts dirtying up Chicago. Yup, those disgusting subhumans sure did wreck every place they invaded, didn't they?

They brought their criminal gangs with them, and filled the headlines with murders. And not only that, they smelled bad, ate weird food, crowded into rundown tenements...

Why else do you think the bay area has a NIGHTLY tally of killings.???

uh, cuz its a highly populated area in the US, where guns are easier to come by than food stamps?

Why do YOU think complete areas in carson are now known as the local barrios?

Because barrio is Spanish for neighborhood?

Don't get me wrong... I enjoy interacting with you. I just prefer to believe your perspective is broader than you let on.

I am sure that many a Chippewa, Sioux, Navajo, and the multitudes of other neighborhood tribes would agree with that!

Poverty and the culture surrounding it seems to have many of the same traits throughout human experience regardless of race geographic location.

Overcrowded and low quality housing. Substance abuse, depression, low sanitation. High levels of violent crime. high pregnancy rates.

You can find these slum environments in every nation on earth and among ALL races.

this is just observational fact. Why it is so and how to help is among the deepest of issues to contemplate.

Racist sentiment is something else entirely. It seems to be a deeply embedded genetic predilection. One that can be reinforced or overcome depending on the individual. Something to do with the tribalistic nature of humanity. It also is found in every race and geography on earth. But it is also found among every socio economic strata of every society on earth.

It is a sickening trait in a modern society. It is common and I enjoy stomping on it every chance I get.

I have never called or considered Ron Racist however.

I do suspect TGT is.

If you get over stressing the PC crap, Ron has a point. Here in VT we have a culture problem as well that comes from the cities south of us. We get the drug gangs from Albany NY , Springfield MA and Hartford CT. They come to VT and try to live the same way here that they lived in the city. It's turning some of our small citys and towns into shitholes. Don't know what the right answers or solutions Are. I do know that there is no need to bring that crap to such a beautifull and peacefull place.

Ron isn't talking about "the drug gangs" he is talking about "the Mexicans" and "the Blacks." There is a big difference. He almost acknowledges the difference with his trite "I have MANY Mexican friends" comments, but continues to lump based on race rather than economic status, social mobility, income, etc. What is the definition of racism again?

Here's a tale of two cities - Seattle and San Bernardino.

San Bernardino has had twice as many murders this year than Seattle, yet Seattle has three times the population as San Bernardino.

What would explain that huge difference, besides demographics?

I guess it's easier to work in some range time down here, where we see 300+ sunny days a year.

Same ol story.

Every generation, there is a new group of immigrants to bash.

It's a theme that is as American as apple pie.

Irish and Italian immigrants, back in the day, were heavily involved in gang activity of their own.

Is something wrong with their culture?

American settlers killed, raped, pillaged, and wrongfully imprisoned Native Americans by the tens of thousands.

Millions of Africans were enslaved by Americans.

Is something wrong with American culture?

I am planing to move to Nevada and you and I will be neighbors. I am Polish. Our culture is different than yours, i.e. we don't have the right to keep and bear arms. Please don't shoot me.
