Well, boy howdy, here's something sure to curl the toes of those crushed by Dorothy's house after we've removed their sequined slippers. And according to It's Only Natural, "A new study now confirms this hypothesis."

Click here for the pedestrian overview: Racism is linked to Religious dogmatism | Center for Inquiry


And if you're guyjin or possibly qua, you can find a quick abstract of the original article at http://psr.sagepub.com/cgi/content/abstract/14/1/126 and from there you can also download the original PDF file. But it's a subscription site. My "individual" subscription (with no back file search option) cost $114 on my AmEx card. But I've had previous subscriptions to SAGE before, but they were always work-related and tax-deductible. This time I just figured it was a more worth while subscription that "Wet sloppy multiple cream pies." :smile: But I'll get back to you all on that. :smile: :smile:

As for me, I've always been a good boy and recycled The Watch Towers, Three Answers to Questions About mormons You Should Know and those newvangelical pamplets the glassy-eyed force into my hands when I'm otherwise distracted while window shopping. They're perfect for starting cozy wood fires in my fire place. :biggrin1:

Perhaps the mods can add another forum named, "Racism."

There - people can examine the millions of cases of racism everyday and micro analyze each and every word that is uttered or printed by the right wing - and link it to racism.

And the rest of us can continue to discuss politics in the politics section.

This will foster an environment where policial issues can be addressed and debated in the politics forum, without each and every thread being taken on a tangent of racism.

If only the "rest of us" were actually discussing politics...in the politics section. It doesn't seem to be a lot of actual discussing but rather a bunch of talking points and high school cafeteria bickering. As someone who loves to observe and participate in informative debates, this fact is quite disheartening...:rolleyes:

Guess one can only wish that adults would act like...well...adults.*sigh*

Star, no matter how you want to deny it or wish it weren't so race is a part of the political landscape. It became a big part of the Republican plan. Do you recall the Willie Horton campaign ads? How about the politicians who railed against the "welfare queens" all the while showing images of the inner cities where shockingly a lot of black folks lived?

I'm just gonna sit back and watch this one play out for now. Because I'm sure in a matter of moments, the usual suspects of socialized bigotry and ignorance will flock to this thread and try to write it off as everyday partisan rants. Can't wait to see just how vile some of the talk gets on this one.

Someone find me the popcorn... :biggrin:

Because I know the typical rhetorical dismissals of "Kool-Aid drinking" will be uttered at least a thousand times or more as this thread progresses. But little do they know, even Kool-Aid can quench your thirst if you know how to taste it in moderation. :wink:

Gosh, I don't like watermelon. Does this mean I'm not black?Does the fact that I said gosh also diminish my blackness?

Racism IS politics, and it is THE political issue.

Racism is a belief or perception or doctrine. Politics is the science of political government. Political government as it relates to governing/foreign policy/elections, etc.

Racism is a cultural/ethnic phenomenon that, at times, is present - but far from a definition of politics.

While I am not dismissing that racism exists, I am stipulating that it does not need to be involved in each and every issue and discussion within the Poli forum.

Let's give up racism in Poli for Lent. After all, we do have a black president. Racism can't be that big of a force nowadays.

FYI, RNC chairman is black.

I don't like watermelon either and I'm black and from the south. Go figure.

I will, however, gladly nibble your "pie". 2 slices, please :cool:

One of my closest friends in college loved playing basketball, rap music, women with big butts, watermelon, and soul food. I wasn't into any of that. He is white and I am black. Everyone used to say that our souls were switched at birth.

2 slices huh? I'm always down with those with healthy "appetites":cool22:

It's because we have a black President that racism is more visible nowadays.
As for Michael Steele, IMO he was made chairman because it's easier to hide behind him when cries of racism are leveled at the RNC.

Sweet potato pie, hmmmm . . . . Stormfront, is it a "chiffon" sweet potato pie? Actually, it really doesn't matter. I like all forms of sweet potato pie. But I'll need at least two pieces (one to eat and a second one to eat off of someone). I'll chip in for more pies. And maybe we need some dry-rub-style barbecue (both ribs and tenderloin)?

I can relate to that. Well, I actually do love soul food and hip hop (not rap)but I digress. Now, about this alleged pie...:tongue:

I've always seen Michael Steele's ascension to the head of the RNC as a bit suspect. Had Obama not been elected as President, would the RNC even had considered putting him in that position? Personally, I put it up there with the Sarah Palin being chosen as the VP candidate after it was revealed that Obama didn't choose Clinton. Seems like pandering, if you ask me. Too bad it didn't work. So, I won't tell you what I think Mr. Steele really is...

All I can say is that it is sweet, warm, and might appetizing:mischievous:

What could Mr. Steele be?
1) A character from South Park
2)Aunt Sarah's husband Thomas
3)Both one an two

I'm going to disagree. Yes we have a Black President but I think overt racism is even more prevalent now. It was always there just under the surface. The election of a Black President has ripped the band-aid off and the festering wound of racism in this country has been exposed.

Okay - then there is no way to win. If the chair was white - the RNC would be racist because it doesn't have black leadership.

Since it does have black leadership, it is simply a smoke and mirror act to hid behind him since the RNC is racist.

They can't win. Either way, they are racists.

I choose 4) None of the above.

He's a puppet who doesn't know he's being used. Or maybe he does.

Regardless, I'll bet he also likes "pie". A lotta Republicans seem to like it. So much that they go to gay bars, get drunk, search for some "pie" and try to drive back home to their wives but get arrested in the process. All after voting for anti-gay legislation.

Looks like a man could lose his mind over pie...:biggrin1:

No, it was racist long before it had black leadership, is still racist under black leadership, and in neither case is its racism deducible from the skin color of its chairman.

Since it does have black leadership, it is simply a smoke and mirror act to hid behind him since the RNC is racist.

Until such time as they abandon racially polarizing talking points and strategy. Regardless of the chairman's race at the time this occurs.

Ahh, but the real clincher is do you have an uber-normous alabaster penis?

And "heck" and "frick" are euphemsisms for Hell and Fuck. Still, I tried to avoid the euphemisms and just use the word instead of the one cosmetically accepted. Oh, and do you like pie? :biggrin1:
