arma virumque cano (et alia)
All this talk of racism got me thinking about this little ditty that got a guy fired from his job.http://takimag.com/article/the_talk_nonblack_version_john_derbyshire/print#axzz1rwRDSGA5Even though I idolized Michael Jordon, think Chris Rock is a comic genius, and consider Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell brilliant in their respective fields, I must be a racist because I detest Holder, Sharpton, Jackson who are in fact racists.I guess this makes me a racist who detests racists. orlin sellers
John Derbyshire is a racist P.O.S. He finally got so far off the reservation that National Review shitcanned him last week. Thomas Sowell is a self-hating "Uncle Tom" (or a calculating liar, which is worse). Walter Williams is a useful idiot who gives the white racists (your tribe, orlin, ol' pal) cover, simply because they can point at him and say, "See, he thinks the same thing we do!".It's possible that you're too stupid to know that you're a racist, but I doubt it. Sharpton and Jackson are tireless self-promoters and conmen but they don't hate themselves or their fellow non-whites.
Tell us about the last Kanye West performance you attended and the last Tyler Perry movie you saw. orlin sellers
orlin, honey, I know it's hard for you to understand,Kanye West and Tyler Perry (neither of whom I waste any of my time paying attention to) are NOT the equivalent of ALEC, the NRA, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Richard Land, John Derbyshire, John Hagee and other people or groups that LOBBY congress and various states to push their agenda. Do you wake up completely brainless every morning or is it some sort of process that continues throughout the day?

"Walter Williams is a useful idiot who gives the white racists (your tribe, orlin, ol' pal) cover, simply because they can point at him and say, "See, he thinks the same thing we do!"."If spewing fecal matter out of your mouth were an olympic event, you would be a gold medalist. It's obvious that you're not here to share info or ideas. You would rather just start arguments, and that's cool. The above statement however, is the most retarded thing I've ever read on this blog. You must not know too much about Dr. Williams, but I assure you, you are nowhere near his intellect. An idiot? You do know that he put himself through school, receiving his Ph.D. from UCLA? The guy has been an Economic Professor as GMU since 1980. At least you didn't call him an "Uncle Tom". Walter Williams is a man that anyone could look up to. No matter what race, religion, or gender. Now, go ahead and reply with some sort of insult, replacing the letter S with Z. Show me how much more educated you are. Tantalize me with your wisdom. Mike- The t-shirt is a tad ridiculous, but at least he comes out and announces his racist views. Not like the closet bigots, as I like to call them.
Actually I don't know which is worse, the guy who admits his racism or the guy who hides it.
only Racist talk about racism
Google "Walter Williams, economist". My first "hit" was freerepublic. If somone's "respected" by those asswipes, his cred with me is "0". Williams, Clarence Thomas, Herman Cain, Michael Steeld and a handful of other non-whites are darlings of the reiKKKwing because of their being "useful idiots". They also make a fairly common mistake of assuming that they are "smarter" than their lesser brethren when the reality is that they have more drive, had better opportunities or were able to leverage some other advantage in their advancement. That they blame the average non-white for his socio-economic status is the worst sort of "Uncle Tom" thinking--and not justification for their warped views.There are lots of "geniuses" out there who are "experts" on some subject and not others. So, are you as big a fan of Thomas Sowell and the rest of those asswipez I mentioned. Howzabout Derbyshire? I noticed that the only one you mentioned was Williams. Yeah, I actually do read the stuff you folks write here.orlin sellers drools"'I'm guessing you live in the whitest state in the union for a reason.btw, when your IQ rises to 28, SELL!""The 10 Whitest States In all, 10 states are more than 90 percent white, including the three northern New England states, West Virginia, Iowa, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Kentucky and North Dakota. Maine tops the nation with 96.9 percent of its population described as white, while 96.7 percent of Vermont and 96 percent of New Hampshire are white, according to the census. All three were at least 98 percent white in the 1990 census. Hawaii, Mississippi, Louisiana, Maryland and Georgia had the smallest percentage of whites, according to the census." (http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=93608&page=1)I don't live in ANY of those states, orlin, do pay attention. Here's a suggestion; don't play with your gunz while you're ranting.
Finally, Democommie speaks on a subject about which he's an expert when he gives advice on ranting.
DC said in an earlier post :Greenland,NH a few miles from about 6 towns that I've lived in between 1973 and 2006. Perhaps your current address is MLK Drive, but it isn't too far-fetched to think you might still live in New England, ...er, the white states.orlin sellers
Commie- I am not a big fan of any of the other names you asked about. I had to read a few books, and write a paper on Dr. Williams for school. I've heard the other names, but never bothered to research them. First- I am familiar with Freerepublic.com. I did 5 minutes of research and found, not 1 single original article written on that site by Dr. Williams. It seems they take articles by him from other publications, and paste them. Not sure if it matters to you.Second- " Williams, Clarence Thomas, Herman Cain, Michael Steeld and a handful of other non-whites are darlings of the reiKKKwing because of their being "useful idiots"." Since you actually replied to me with a sort of respectful manner, I will do the same. In regards to your statement above, I am assuming that you mean Williams is a poster child for groups with racist views. This is just not true. It would be the same as saying Jesse Jackson is a darling of the White Supremacist movement, since they both hate Jews. If a group of jerk-offs takes Williams' writings as some sort of hatred for the black race, you can't fault Williams for that. He preaches no such thing.Third- "They also make a fairly common mistake of assuming that they are "smarter" than their lesser brethren when the reality is that they have more drive, had better opportunities or were able to leverage some other advantage in their advancement."This statement, in regards to Williams, is 100% not true. He grew up in a Philadelphia housing project. He had no Father growing up. Dr. Williams had no advantage what so ever in his childhood. In fact, his early years would mirror that of a young black kid in the projects today. Minus any gang problems though, I think. I wasn't alive in the 50's."That they blame the average non-white for his socio-economic status is the worst sort of "Uncle Tom" thinking--and not justification for their warped views."You can not be serious. I will inform you that Dr. Williams was drafted into the service in the early 60's. He proceeded to fight against the "Jim Crow" laws that were in place back then. I think he was even dishonorably discharged because of it. I don't think the term Uncle Tom fits him too well.I hope this helps, probably won't, but I do respect Dr. Williams very much. The other ones? I could give a shit. I never had to read their books. :)
