Jimmy, I don't think his age really matters; what matters is that he acknowledge being a liberal at first too until he discovered the truth about it all. He has said just as I have and even Herman Cain himself that progressive liberals hate black conservatives just as much as they do whites; additional we're sell outs and Uncle Toms because we don't fall in line with the 85-95 per centers. Another reason that his age doesn't matter is that Cain, Thomas Sowell and Walter E. Williams are black conservatives that saw and experienced the racism and have all put it behind and so have I. And let me correct you, institutional racism is dead in America; however we still have social racism that is promoted today by the likes of John Lewis, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Barack Obama too.
Anybody can do whatever they want to do in America 2014,they just have to stop
expecting that they can behave anyway they want to ,stop making excuses and take personal responsibility for there actions to become self sufficient. It's not your fault or Chief's or TOT's fault that racism was rampant 50 odd years ago, most or all of those people are dead. Let's move forward talk about it and resolve it. Political correctness isn't going to help!
Jimmy, personally I feel that you can call me your main nigga all you want to as a term of endearment; however your progressive liberal friends won't. That's why it's a fact that progressives keep the hatred going not conservatives. I have black friends that feel like we can do it but you can't. I tell them just like I'm telling you now that it's a double standard if we think we can go out in public or at any type of event and say it, an expect no else, especially whites not to.
John Lewis need to take a look in the mirror and move forward and affirmative action isn't needed anymore,
Jimmy, generally I agree with you. I'm just saying if blacks gonna continue to call each other this as a " term of endearment" then I say you can too!
That's the only way to be fair to everyone.
Funkentelecky, I just watched the video. I think we all need to listen carefully to every word spoken.
I believe I understand the message and I agree entirely.
Much of any history is "ugly" and best if forgiven even if not forgotten.
Most dark times have some light if individuals will look for the light.
Thank you for posting this blog.
Jimmy, well said. We have an obligation to not continue to perpetuate racial and "purism" This goes for all races though. Last time I checked whitey is no worse than other ethnicities. Change will only occur if it is a collective effort. Funk, I have a lot of respect for you because you identify yourself by who you are; not what color you are. That in it self is the first step. Good conversation all.
Jimmy, I respect your freedom to choose what you do in your life according to the facts at hand. Just some more info for your understanding that the term of endearment is pronounced nig-gah written down on paper as nigga. The hateful racial epithet is pronounced as you already know as nig-ger written down on paper as nigger. I know that I could have a personal and open discussion with you without any tension whatsoever because of what you have explained to me about yourself. I've already done so with friends of mine who are white and I have some good friends too. In 2014 and beyond we must remember to judge people individually and by the content of their character and not by our past history that they had nothing to do with.
TOT, you're welcome and I agree with you that we must look/search for the light to move forward.
HMJC, I appreciate your kind comments about me and that most of us on this site do so as we'll.
Good debate, I would like to add that when you accuse or insinuate a position; examples of it brings clarity to it.
