  •  These people are just vile. (12+ / 0-)

    There is nothing that can be done for the hate-filled lunatics that swarm onto a video like this for the purpose of disliking it and talking it down.  The world-view of people like that is so warped and so utterly at odds with reality that the only thing that will change their opinion is the day they meet their maker. Sorry, but that's just the way it is.

    •  There are some white people who are afraid (3+ / 0-)

      and they let that fear become anger; then they take that anger and allow it to rule their thoughts. Thoughts that are dog-whistled by many right wingers.
      Right wingers of whom many are otherwise intelligent, but they were taught eugenics at a young age and grew up believing what they were taught was gospel; partly because some of that education emanated from the pulpit.
      Don't write these people off as ignorant assholes, because some of them are too smart to be believing what they do.
      White people should look around and be frightened by what their neighbor believes, not by a video asking support from a particular demographic.

        for many whites, the election of Obama to the Presidency was and still is a 9/11 like event.

          I am, because I can find no excuse and can imagine no remedy for this persistent, unending, bullshit racism, PARTICULARLY among people who are too smart to be believing the things that they do.

          Although I will say that my late step father was a nasty, unrepentant racist for as long as I ever knew him, but after 20+ years of marriage to my mother and her endless efforts to re-educate him, he actually voted for Obama not long before he died.

          So he managed to save his soul, or should I say my mother did, and for that I am happy.  Maybe I should try to hold on to that thought, huh???
