    Came across this rather volatile blog where the writer's opinion about whites is made very clear. Not sure that the tone is helpful, though. Even though there are some valid points made, I think the writer is a little too biased toward stereotypes.

    What do you think?

    I suppose it's refreshing to see black racism frankly presented.

    Yes, the person does draw upon well-known facts to articulate their argument. However, this is spin, and uses the same tactics that those on the opposition use to make their case. I personally think that this blog writer's opinions are rooted in the racism they've seen and/or endured, which is tragic. However, hate can't be fought with hate. It has to be fought with love.

    Yes, i'm surprised. I'm shocked and awed. Black people with profound prejudice against white people. I didn't think it was possible.

    *yawn*

    Come back when you got something that's actual news.

    I think he painted white people with too broad a brush..........His opinions would have made more sense if he said SOME white people.

    Is this serious?

    There should be a blog devoted to stupid people in general. Race, socioeconomic status and gender aside.

    I actually read a good chunk of this and it's actually quite funny:

    It's very much tongue-in-cheek and directed to ignorant and self-righteous white people with whom non-idiot white people have problems with. Like good political satire, the humor does a good job of describing the truth. The brush may be a little broad, but it is accurate, insightful, and delivered with a wry grin.

    One of the links on the page is to another blog I'd forgotten about but find really funny: Stuff White People Like.

    Another one also linked has some great motivational-poster style art.

    Very well said, kind of along the lines of that MLK quote about how violence is immoral due to its roots in hate, etc.

    I just think this person is blowing off steam, kind of like Glenn Beck when he cries or pours gasoline on someone.

    Forgot the ones who think Obama is Muslim, or isn't a USA citizen...

    I knew a black man who said he wasn't racist 'cause he was black. He just hated white people.

    There is no "backlash" against white people.
    As a minority, we are not trying to take over your suburbs.

    We're not trying to change your traditions. We're not trying to replace Apple Pie & Turkey with Sweet Potato Pie & Chitterlings as the food of choice for Thanksgiving. We're not trying to replace Santa Claus with Kwanzaa-Man. We're not pushing an agenda for Jay-Z to remix the National Anthem. We're not trying to turn your daughters into Welfare moms.

    Anything else? Oh yeah... We're not all drug dealers or thugs. We're not all on government assistance. We're all not lazy, good for nothings that don't know how to work hard. We all don't get our jobs through Affirmative Action, nor are we going to use it to take jobs away from you.

    But we will apologize for the Electric Slide and the Jherri Curl. :biggrin:

    I particularly like the company of fat black women. If I can't speak my mind, I know I can get one who will speak on my behalf. Just love'em! I'd like a few to come to my little rural town and put some people in their place.:biggrin1:

    I couldn't read all of them, they were just to hateful and negative for me. I'm a sensitive soul. :redface: The overall tone reminded me of the putz Stronzo encountered at that gas station a week ago. :yup: In some ways I think the bias was intentionally heavy handed to prove a point.

    Really? Why? :confused: It's not like it's a secret or a mystery that some blacks don't like, some whites based solely on the color of their skin.
