How many times do you see
someone that makes a lot of sense about a subject, then they are
called a racist?
Now it is being used against the
people that want to make sure our borders are secure.
It is not always about
race. Most of the time it isn't about race. But the
people who speak for some minorities sure do try to make it about
The sure way not to have to talk
about the REAL issues is to call someone a racist. Then the
conversion is changed from the real issues and what to do about them
to is that person a racist or not.
Is there racism in
America? Sure there is and it is in all races not just
one. When people stop thinking that they are the only ones
that have a problem with racist people then maybe they will finally
understand, some people are just that way, but not all people
are. Should you not get a job just because you are black or
brown. NO, but then neither should you not get a job just
because you are white. There are jerks and bad people in all
races. There are racists in all races.
The most wronged people in this
country is the Native Americans. We came to their land and
country and took it away from them. The talk of restitution is
such a joke, yet there are people, even elected officials talking
about it. You have got to be kidding me that people are even
taking this seriously. From the looks of things in Africa it
looks like it would be better to be in this country even if you
don't have the greatest life. You should thing God that you
was born in this country. You have the chance to make a good
life for yourself, but you have to do something with that
chance. You can't put all of your energy in to how wronged you
are just because of what color you are. You are responsible
for your own success or failure.
Look at people like Clarence
Thomas, Colin Powell, or Condi Rice. Three very powerful
people that have made it, they should be an inspiration to people of
any race or color.
There is a
program on tv this summer called Rock Star INXS. The group is
looking for a new lead singer to replace the lead singer that killed
himself. It started out with 15 or 16 singers from around the
world. America votes and the bottom three each week goes on
the block and the Band cuts one of them.
In the last
week of August 2oo5 the person that was sent home was black.
He was very talented, good looking, a good performer, and appeared
to be intelligent. This week was the third time he had been in
the bottom three. When people are cut they have a chance to
whose name is TY, went on about how the reason he was gong home was
that people weren't accepting of him because of his color.
Like I said he appeared to be intelligent and maybe he is, but this
was an outrageous statement. What is really sad is that people
are brought up and encouraged to think such things. Maybe at
certain times and cases this is true, BUT it isn't here in this
First Ty may
have a bigger appreciation of his talent the;n what others
his statement he appears to have the mine set that he is the most
talented person in the world and if he doesn't succeed or make it,
it is not because of his talent level, but ONLY because he is
black. That was and is an insult to all the people who were
voting in this.
never started showing up in the bottom 3 until some of the less
talented people were cut from the show. After that then he
started showing up. But there is people there just as talented
if not more then Ty.
there was a reason people didn't connect with him it wasn't the
color of his skin, but his silly haircut. He had a mohawk that
was spiked. Very few will relate to that much less like
it. The band even made comments about it early on but he went
back to it. If he wants to blame anybody or thing for him
getting voted off, he can blame his haircut.
He needs to watch the 2nd and 3rd season of American Idol. A
black person won both of those seasons. For him to make
statements like that in something like this is so off base, but will
any one call him on it? Doubtful. This is just another
example of how screwed up peoples way of looking at things
