I don't think you understand.
I doubt very many do!
And it's probably an idea that's not even occurred to some, much less anyone have the guts to just SAY IT.
And that would be that just maybe...
there are many many blacks AND whites who don't want to be "integrated", at least not forcibly integrated.
Desegregation simply for the sake of desegregation has done neither race any good!
There is nothing wrong with preferring to go to a "black" church or a "white" church. There is nothing wrong with preferring to associate with a specific race of people. The issue of racism only comes in when a person is refused acceptance in a circle where EVERYONE should be welcomed according to their human rights and legal rights. In a predominantly-black city, say, it's wrong to exclude whites from interacting in the job market or the city activities simply because they're white (or vice-versa; you get my drift). But if a particular person doesn't find a friendship bond with another person, or simply doesn't like their personality, or whatever, there's no reason to invite them over for a barbecue or make a point of congregating with them just 'cause they're white (or black, or whatever.)
It's the same as a man preferring, say, blondes over brunettes, or a woman preferring a tall muscular man over a slim one, or whatever.
How many blacks do we know of who invite whites into "their" churches?
Again, there's nothing wrong with having preferences on who we want to associate with!
Did I say something taboo? lol. I no longer care, since our supposedly-civil-rights-advocating-President has had the audacity to impose his own ulterior motives and horrible agenda into MY life along with the rest of American citizens.
Yes, historically, the burden of proof of NOT being racist has fallen onto the shoulders of whites, in particular white churches.
This racism issue has become so distorted by the liberal agenda that it's ridiculous.
So, no, I'm not racist.
I do prefer friends who are white, I suppose, mainly because I know they don't have a civil-rights, vengeance chip on their shoulders I'd have to deal with!
And I don't like traditionally-black music styles! It's not who sings it, it's just that I don't like that style of singing or music. I don't like rap music, just as I didn't like disco. Is it taboo to say that? I sure hope not; 'cause it's my freedom and my right to say it; because those are traditionally "black" activities (the rap music; the saggy pants, etc.)
But if I were to have the chance, these days to be friends with anyone who's black (I had some black friends during my school days), my decision would be based on whether or not I liked that person, not on their skin color, just as it was made years ago.
I despise everything Barack Obama and Colin Powell and Jesse Jackson stand for. But then, I also despise what Hilary Clinton and Bill and Nancy Pelosi stand for.
I like Sarah Palin, except that she's too soft when it comes to battling the gay agenda.
For a "leader", or maybe President, I'd still prefer her over what we have or any of the libs.
I used to like and respect Colin Powell until he showed his racism.
One preference would be Larry Elder, a black commentator who shows some common sense about today's politics, and even the race issues we face today. He's in the same category, in my view, as Glenn Beck, whom I agree with almost 98% of the time, the disagreeable 2% being his Mormon views and his tendency to put the Republican Party in the same category as the Democrat one.
Do you see what I mean?
It's not racist to have preferences!
I can't make someone like me based on me being a person with white skin.
And neither should I be forced to "like" someone simply because they have black skin.
I'm so sick of the liberal crap being shoved down our throats, even to the point of the "thought police" that's being put in place by Obama's stupid "hate crimes bill".. what a load of crap!
If we could justly prosecute someone for their "hatred", we'd have to put him in jail right away, 'cause he's shown his racism very vividly!
