"Make America White Again". Agree or Disagree? Is that statement racist or not?
What do you think motivated Tennessee Congressional candidate,Rick Tyler, to put that message on a billboard?
I definitely think that racism is the message when it comes to this sign (and others like it). The message was simply made more clear than where he took 75% of his message from. I wonder why the very existence of people that may have differing backgrounds, looks, beliefs, is so frightening for some people that they (there have been a few others to make the news) would resort to this and other insulting things. Surely their time, efforts, etc. are better spent elsewhere.
As for what motivated him to do this, I could not tell, but this action shows that he is threatened by all that is not "white." I find this to be very sad.
Some folk are just plain Looney Tunes. The guy actually tied it into the days of Ozzie and Harriet. Brains are complicated things. Just one misfiring neuron and you can get a moron. We note that it was taken down rather quickly. I kind of wonder why it was not shot to pieces even faster.
One rather horrible concept brought on by mainstream media -- was that it was Trump inspired. I wonder if the radical destructive arm of BLM is inspired by Obama? Does the Pope inspire people to hate Muslims?
Nope to it all -- crazy people are just crazy people.
God I hope they don't make America White Again -- what would happen to my minority wife and child?
The liberals who altered immigration law in the 1960s to say we want anyone as far away from European Christian as possible in preference for immigration.
And we get insane rules today such that so called Syrian refugees who are Muslim get preference in immigration as refugees but not the Christians fleeing ISIS persecution. The preferences that say Boer farmers can't immigrate here, but unskilled Somali immigrants whose sons are joining Al Shabab can.
Does European include the Irish or Italians? Are Catholics considered Christian? Everybody has different perceptions of 'white'. At 1 point GB declared the Irish 'nonwhite' - yup the lightest skinned people on earth deemed nonwhite.
Please enlighten me by pointing me in the direction of the 'rules' that say Muslims get preference over Christian fleeing ISIS persecution. Your comments do not stand up to scrutiny!
Of course, the statement is racist. There are some people who strongly maintain that in the good old days there was predominant Caucasian hegemony, America was supposedly a much better nation. They maintain that now with more non-Caucasian immigrants in America & with Blacks & other non-Caucasians in positions of power & authority, America is more of a foreboding place. They want Caucasians to have all the powerful positions & privilege while non-Caucasians & Blacks are put in subordinate positions like they were in the past.
Congressional candidate Rick Tyler want America to be a safer, more homogenous place. Mr. Tyler see multiculturalism as a problem in American society. He contend that as a result of America being a multicultural society, the quality of America life has worsened, with rising crime, more monies going to social services, worsening education standards, & the deterioration of neighborhoods & communities. Mr. Tyler wants an America with a large Caucasian majority & immigrants with a drastic reduction of or no immigrants of non-Caucasian origin. He further contend that when America had Western values, it was a much better country as opposed to now that America has embraced, even welcomed & encouraged multicultural i.e. non-Western values.
Everyone knows that sounds racist, and yes whites are the ones that can actually be racist, since their ancestors owned slaves. Before America was white it was Brown with the Indians, it's their land, that's what the word native comes from, America was their home. Many Black people have a high percent of Indian DNA, due to Native Indians and Negro slave mixing.
These days there is no one any more racist than the black groups such as BLM and Black Panthers. They aren't any different than KKK or the Nazi followers. Just my opinion, Greg.
I think that the answer here is racist. To imply, suggest or state that only whites can be racist is in fact racist which proves Greg's comment.
Yes, America was brown before white people came (with their black slaves). Lots of people are part black or American Indian. Also I know a black man who identifies with his Irish grandmother.
"Make America White Again" is an insane statement. It derides the actual fact that the President of the U.S. is black.
It implies that it's OK to discriminate against others. And in doing so the U.S. will go back to Jim Crow. It denies the rights off 25% of all Americans.
It says that pre-Civil War values are best. And that hatred is a family value.
Disagree-its actually sad to see people trying to go back in time instead of forward. We can't stay in the past forever.
He ought to have his own DNA tested- he just might be surprised.

What are your feelings about racial/ethnic births surpassing Caucasians births in the U.S.?According to 2011 estimates by the Census, for the first time, racial and ethnic births make up more than 50% of all births in the United States. How will this impact the U.S. in the next 20 years?

God said, "I will put enmity between thy seed and her seed. Thy shall bruise his heel and she shall bruise thy head."Many believers thought this prophecy was talking about Cain and his offspring, against Eve' offspring but that's contradictory in nature. Cain is also of Eve's offspring...

We're all racist in some ways. But racism by white people seems to be more newsworthy and gets more attention than racism by others. There are many people who work hard to not do anything to offend their fellow human, but it's impossible to escape prejudice - it's hardwired into our...
