    He was being mean to my daughter so she wouldn't let him play with her to which he responded "You are racist, You just won't play with me because I am black, you are a racist"
    urgggg......
    These kids are raised to believe this and learn the junk from their parents. it will never go away.

I grew up in a mostly white neighborhood and live now in a mostly white neighborhood. Does that make me a racist too because of it? I hope not.
    You live where you feel comfortable and no, it doesn't make you a racist. If there are those with problems with that, then they obviously feel uncomfortable with their own feelings and want everyone else to feel a collective sense of guilt to assuage those feelings.

    I agree.
    While I was born in the Philippines, I have a strong Iberian heritage( two of my granduncles fought on the republican side in the Spanish Civil War in 1936)but it was my father's desire when we came here in the early 50's to set aside the old heritage and start a new tradition in this country. Hence he forbade use of the old language and we fervently learned English as our primary tongue.
    Though my siblings and I have learned several languages in the interim, we think not of ourselves as hyphenated, but as Americans alone. The only times national origin comes up is when others bring it up, some not so diplomatically.
    I am sad for what is happening in the old country, but I am more concerned with what happens here. This is where I live, and it is more important to me that we repair what needs fixing here before we go out in the world to "rectify" things . To me, it is just an inane excuse not to make things proper for all Americans , not just a chosen few.

    When I brought my first house, I was out mowing the lawn, when a black person came up to me and asked to talk to the owner of the house. When I responded that I was, he looked at me sheepishly and then said" Sorry, I thought you were just the grounds keeper".
    Yes, I was offended, but considered the source.
    I hope your daughter is well, but unfortunately, this is a hard scrabble lesson she had to learn.

    Not all blacks fit this category. I've known quite a few that are hardworking people that I have no problem calling my friends. One of my best friends is black. But you've basically hit the nail right on the head. Too many of them are being raised to blame the white guy, milk the system, etc.
    Liberals Suck!

    I think we need a sub-forum (i.e. Chit Chat, Meet and Greet) called 'Stormfront'
