    100% Agree.

    The great "Race Relationship Problem" is a bullshit meme for Professional Elitist Politicians, their Paid Political Pundits and a few ignorant radicals.

    I would walk across the street to shake Thomas' hand and in the same token, I would walk across the street to avoid shaking Obamas or Pelosi's hand. Quality of character make all the difference.

    Sadly, what was once used as a legitimate and honest argument...Now is just used by race hustlers and con artists to line their own pockets, fool anyone they can, and to gain position of power. Yes I'm talking to you Jesse, Al and anyone else close.

    @drpeeper
    I can agree with thomas to a certain extent.

    Blacks have come a LONG way from the days of dred scott to right now. But there are SOME who use past racial atrocities as an excuse to NOT be the best they can be.

    There are WAY MORE opportunities for blacks to take advantage of to make something of themselves. But it takes WORK. HARD WORK.

    Some are NOT willing to do the work that it takes to succeed. Others are.

    I'm not a die hard fan of Thomas from a JUDICIAL standpoint but he DID do what was necessary to succeed.

    There are many stories of blacks who made it during way more ROUGHER racial times than these.

    Even Obama can be an influence. If he can become president then there can be NO MORE EXCUSES for other blacks not to be successful.

    In Louisiana we celebrate everything and nothing at all. We have a lot of "festivals". One of the things we do a lot of is dance to Cajun and Zydeco music. Our street dances are a big deal. Blacks and Whites dance together. We socialize together. We eat, party and work, together. There are the few instances when there are clashes, but on the whole it's just a normal life with people who make up a variety of skin color, traditions, celebrations, food and music. It's not about race, it's about family and it's about people.

    White middle and upper-class Liberals who have never lived around blacks or any other minorities for that matter are easily the most sensitive group when it comes to matters of race.

    Racism and tolerance can't be split by color, gender, political preference, region or any other demographic, from my experience. In the end, people are people and you find all kinds out there.

    Every place I worked there were non whites working. They ranged from people that were my peers, my Supervisors & people I supervised. Just like whites I worked with some were great employees, some were just OK and some were terrible.

    Yes, the USA has rubbed it's skin way too thin.
    "Thomas went on to say that the worst racism he's ever endured was among "northern liberals," not folks in the South."
    Yep, take note of that comment. It is so true..........

    People who don't live in the south are used to stereotypes they've heard all their lives, they would be surprised at how little racism there is down here.

    Yep, it's always the Liberals and the gangsta wannabe's in our area who cry race all the time...the normal folks don't really give a crap about skin color at all...just character!

    @BravoJuliet Absolutely agree. I often go into "older" areas of many towns. Many of the middle/older people of color talk to me, wave at me, shake my hand and know me. It's called mutual respect.
    The wannabes usually give me a "odd" stare. I give them one back......

    It has gotten much work since January 2009. Our government is racist and generates racial discord. The president poisoned the well. The attorney general then dumped gasoline in the well and threw a lit match in it. Great job, you two.
    The sad part is Obama was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for not being George Bush. If only they could rescind it. I am sure Alfred Nobel is spinning in his grave.

    Given that the outrage started before he'd even been sworn in and thus didn't yet HAVE any actions and policies as president, no.

    Don't forget who pulled the race card on Hillary to smoke her in the primaries. The democrats wanted a first to "make history". Obama saw an advantage and took it. Why be shocked when he takes other racial advantages. However, he's not concerned with building up black Americans at all. Only knocking whites down.

    @Cal Not what I remember. The outrage did not really start until Obamacare was passed into law without a single republican vote. His approval ratings were high until he was proven to be a liar. Since then they have been dropping.

    Sure it is. It's because of the Tea Party. I remember your ignorant ass signs about Obama and Michelle depicted as monkeys. Your racism is blatant when you want it to be. And you have also became adept at masking it. But every once and awhile, something happens and just like the Sje-hulk you simply can't hide it any longer and your racism takes control.

    I'm a southern boy. I know hate when I see it.

    @Laradian The real hate is promulgated by the race peddlers...Sharpton, Jackson, and their white-guilt liberal counterparts like Chris "thrill up my leg" Matthews.

    Then, we have people like you, who throw out accusations like the one you just wrote.

    Thomas is an individual who thinks as an individual and often this offends group agenda. There will always be things in this life that we as individuals will not like or agree with. As I believe Thomas is suggesting, it is high time we learn to live with those differences and stop trying to insult those we do not agree with. I wish us all luck but make no promises. oh yea, I think Thomas is a good man and a responsible justice.
  • #273

    Thomas is the most ideological vote on the court. He often goes further then even Scalia does. I've never met him so I have no idea if he's a good man or not. I find him a Court Justice who comes to every case with his mind made up. I agree we shouldn't just insult each other constantly. Ready to start with Obama? If you are then I'll not insult the next GOP POTUS.

    It's not that America is too sensitive. It's that Democrats use it as their political battering ram against the GOP. They purposely paint anyone who is running against them as racist, or hating women, etc. The Democrats must maintain their stranglehold with the Black vote. They must make every Black person believe that they are victims of the white man. This is truly hideous but the Democrats understand it has worked for them for decades with the Liberal media's support. If you ever sit back and ask yourself what has the Democrat party done for Black families all these decades, your only answer can be..... keeping them tied to the welfare roles by constantly drilling it in their heads that they are victims & will never get head as long as the White men in the GOP hold them back. It is truly sickening what Democrats have done to the black family.

    Guess you missed the GOP plan to have a Southern Strategy. It's a popular myth that Blacks are the people on welfare. Actually the majority are whites and the predominate age group are the elderly not mothers
  • #282

    @Frosty45 Do you understand the % of white & Black people in America? There are millions more white people in America so if you go by numbers there will always be more white people in any place. Now try getting the real numbers by telling us the % of people on welfare, not the actual numbers. If you actually think that Black people are doing better by Democrat policies by getting ahead & getting good jobs, I have a bridge to sell you.
  • #319

    Actually given that Blacks have less money they will be more likely to be on welfare but they are a minority of the total yet they are always the example that posters use. Fact is in there are welfare people in rural America white as I am. We have had had as many years of GOP POTUS as Democrats and I've noticed no change in how Blacks fare.

    Those that want to build a new Amerika must first divide the old America wether by race ,social economics,gender or political views.obamas socialist professors he so admired taught him well.

    The GOOD OLD America" was one of segregation, abuse of minorities of every ethnic group and White males in charge of the government. I recognize the insecure people have to attack professors as Socialists or realize they are lacking knowledge. I went to college and discovered my college profs were as diverse as the rest of America.

    "I noticed this too when I lived in the North - a coldness between black and white in public interaction that we just don't have down South. It's perfectly normal for black folks and white folks to talk to each other in public, and to treat each other with courtesy, even though the private opinions they have of each other might be racist."

    I've noticed this also. It's funny and quite a bit insulting to me that the south gets such a bad wrap for STILL being racist when this is the case.

    @Cal Obviously, a black man can't have a thought of his own in his mind. Must have been his rich white southern masters that put him up there on that pedestal to say that.

    So because he's black, I'm supposed to pretend he's telling the truth even though he's not?

    @Cal wait, are you talking about Justice Thomas, or President Obama?? we are clearly (per the 'elites' and Democrat politicians) supposed to believe every lie he has told us (and there have been many over the last 6 years) because he's black. the truest evidence that America has gotten past racial sensitivities would have been his failure of reelection in 2012 - it would have shown that liberals would acknowledge his failures of leadership, ethics, and policy, and not voted for him simply because they could not bear to vote against the first black President for fear of seeming racist, if only to themselves ...

    Most blacks don't like Justice Clarence Thomas because he tends to call the kettle black and he's a Republican. But they love Al that does blacks by far more harm than good.

    I suspect part of Thomas's problem with Blacks comes from having benefited from Affirmative action now he opposes it.

    I suspect eople will like them better when only Asians are admitted to top Universities. Afirmative Action laws give people a chance where non exists without them. Don't worry we have a court now that will keep those minorities out of whites way.

    Quoting viniketa in the thread FELONS SHOULD BE ABLE TO VOTE AFTER THEY HAVE SERVED THEIR TIME, HOLDER SAYS (post 48):

    "It is one thing to think in a racist way, but quite another to discriminate (act upon) on the basis of race in a manner that excludes or deprives certain races of rights afforded to others."

    Perhaps this explains the problem among liberals to which Justice Thomas is referring.

    I have no problem with felons voting after they serve their time. Why should I? Justice has been served and they should get a fresh start.

    There is too much attention given whenever a black person even thinks they have been slighted by a white person. White people are expected to walk on eggshells as to not offend a black person. A big problem is that that is not true of the opposite. Just look at stand up comedy acts. Blacks can say whatever they want about either race, but a white person cannot even hint at the opposite! This problem of blacks looking for a way a white person has offended them is not anywhere nearly as bad in the south from the stories I have read, seen or heard in the north. Perhaps northern white people do not interact with blacks is because they are afraid they might accidentally, somehow offend a black person. Then comes the bandwagon with Al Sharpton leading the way! Jesse Jackson has gotten race relations down much better. Clarence Thomas has it right. Just look where he is. He is a lifetime justice on the Supreme Court! I believe coming from where he did to where he is should be a huge life lesson. If you take your life at looking for how "The Man" has kept you back, you will never move forward. Today there is no "The Man" holding anyone back. I wonder if I would have done so well had I grown up in the north?

    Just my crazy way of thinking while all you open minded and egalitarian whites people are telling blacks how to think and respond on this issue........I think most blacks are less concerned about being slighted as they are about being shot because some white guy with a gun declared open season on them. Egg shells you say...I feel for you but i can't find ya.
  • #291

    I suspect there would be a lot less Black-White problems if Blacks were hired without with prejudice, if people stopped claiming blacks were getting the goodies of welfare and always the people used as examples of welfare recipients. You are having a crazy generalization if you think Northern white people don't have contact with Blacks. That would be the same as me saying all Southern whites hate Blacks. I have worked with all minorities and found them no different then the white people I worked with. When I got my Cancer diagnosis the first person I called was a friend I knew was my closest peer who had cancer before me. Like me she worked in mental health, grew up a Baptist, was a totally dependable backup when dealing with dangerous patients & one of the best when it came to making assessments. We had only too obvious differences. she was a she & I'm a he and she was darker skin.

    Thomas had been very successful having the opportunity of Affirmative action to get an Ivy Law degree which lead to being on the USSC. I've noticed that ALL 9 judges have Ivy Law degrees.

    Far too often I've seen Minorities being held to higher standards when applying for a job and too many supervisors coming to the table with stereotypes about them. And pretending this never happens is denying reality.

    I grew up in an area that had all sorts of people- all races, creeds, colors, religions and nationalities. I've gone to school with, worked with, and have friends from all sorts of groups. But I think when you come down to it, when you're hanging out watching a movie, or working on a project with a tight deadline, the vast majority of average, everyday people really are color blind these days.

    The problem, IMHO is the media and certain mouthpieces claiming to be spokespersons or "Leaders" for members of their individual groups, cough*DeyRaysissAlSharpton*cou gh, beating the dead horse and his grave when a racially motivated event, or one that can be spun that way, does occur. Adding fuel to the fire, stirring the turd pot, etc. Til we as a collective stand up and say "Hey, we've had enough of this garbage", racism will be alive and well.
  • #292

    Depends on Where & who you are working with. I've worked in color blind settings and other places where slurs were obvious. I confront whites about the second and remind blacks of the other.

    Trying to claim either always happen is naive and dishonest.
