    disappear or die. It sounds hyperbolic, but look at the history of the racial/homophobic/sexist tensions in America and include all groups. If you succeed, they show up to knock you back down. If you fail to succeed at anything due to conditions, they tell you that you deserve to die--you deserve no assistance, no examining for disproportionately terrible conditions that lead a lot of people of certain groups to poverty, jail and death. Just die, starve and be quiet about it.

    Oh, you went to an Ivy League college and graduate school? Well, that's because somebody did your homework for you and gave you special privileges. You don't deserve any accolades for your "achievements". Get back down there, scrub my floors, bring my coffee. It doesn't pay enough money? Well then starve to death.

    It's hard to be legit and still pay the rent? Well, then go to jail and die there, I don't care.

    One of you became the potus and millions of you became doctors, scientists, inventors, scholars, professors, political influences and Wall Street execs and business owners? So what? I saw a black guy kill someone. You're all scum because of that one guy. You all deserve to die.

    You still contribute nothing to America even though thousands of inventions that are used and seen everyday came from black inventors.

    Every song on the radio, including country music is influenced by African rhythms and every song in the rock category was influenced by Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson and Howlin' Wolf but you people and your music SUCK! Take your hip-hop, which speaks too plainly about the ills of a racist American society and go back to Africa.

    That's the way those assholes are. They can go fuck themselves, every one. They want us all to disappear and decrease the "surplus" population including Jews, blacks, gays, "feminazis" who want choice, Native Americans who were here FIRST and Latinos who are so brown, they might darken America! They are sick, fascists that Hitler would admire.

    Matter of fact...didn't he admire the American racists? My history classes have gotten really far behind me.

      ugly as it is, and ugly as they are.
      The reality that about one third of "amerikans" think like this is saddening. The bright side is it used to be about 70%.  

      Wonder when it will be around 5%?

      I won't live to see it.

      I was talking to my bf about this the other day.  I told him, I'm young, attractive, and well-educated.  One of those crazy racists would looooove to own me.  To rape me, to beat me, to force me to bear children whose only purpose would be to increase his wealth.  It hurts their hearts to see beautiful women of color, independent, free, and with the ability to say, 'Fuck you, you racist POS' with (almost) no fear of retribution.

      Gotta love the modern era! :D

      And yes, I read that Hitler called Americans their 'little Aryan brothers'.  Considering the Birth of A Nation inspired Klan resurgence taking place at the time, I'm not at all surprised.

        The teapartiers want all the government services that tax money currently pays for like:

        roads
        education
        infrastructure
        healthcare
        defense

        but they don't want to pay the taxes that pays for them.  However there was once a way to get work done without paying for it in America.

        Yes the word I am looking for is slavery.

        Teabaggers want slavery to be legal again so they can own slaves and get wealthy without having to work for it.  Their slaves would do all the work, and the teabaggers would get all the reward.

        I was just telling somebody earlier that I grew up in a place where being afraid of people gets you no respect. Nobody is afraid of racists least of all. They dont even come within a 5 mile radius of our hood. I pop off on racists and tell them where to go and the look in their eyes is fear and something else....helplessness. Why should they look and feel "helpless"? I think they wish they could beat me down with impunity like they used to do. Make me drop my eyes like a 5 year old under the threat of physical harm or death and apologize to "sir" while dying inside. I'm a million miles from that.

        It's their fault. They should have never let us get so "gangsta" while our deferred dreams were festering in the disenfranchised and barren hood. "Gansta" is good for many things. Just ask Alan Grayson, one of the most "gangsta" Senators I've ever seen.

      you won't be the first, but soon, so very soon, the white racist republicans are going to be (already are?) irrelevant, along with their ideas.  if you have been around a few years, you can see the decline in power of these white patriarchs.  that is why they are running so scared.  it is the flame out, before they are done.  they feel it coming, and they are panicked.  why else would they ever allow someone like Failin' Palin to be on the ticket?  they are shitting bricks as my sister likes to say.

        more than likely correct. I see the same things you're seeing. They are running scared but at the same time they are trying to inflame and expand racism. The Confederate shit that Virginia governor is trying to prove, trying to make MLK Jr day into a day that honors a white gun owner in Utah etc. I cant even think of all the stuff they're trying to pull right now. The nerve of them.

        They have a clear plot to bring the Confederacy into some historically honorable position and diminish the horrors of racism as nothing. This will open the door to gawd-knows-what. Since Arizona tried to deny MLK Jr. day years ago I have not seen such disrespect for the Civil Rights Movement.

        Gawd I hope you're right and it's the flame-out before they die. America doesn't need this.
