I guess some people live in boxes or shells. How can you really not see these things or know about them or believe them???? Because it's easier to pretend in fantasy land that none of it still happens??!!
I didn't have to "look for bad treatment" it was right there in front of me every day.
Blacks & whites are treated the same, money is money. Really. Go into Washington, DC or Baltimore or Dallas. Try to get a cab driver to take you to certain parts of town. Won't happen. Even if you have a wad of dollar bills in your hand.
You just admitted in your own statement that YOU treat people differently based on race. So, see there IS a difference isn't there? Even though you probably don't even realize you are doing it.
It must be very dark there --- with your head all the way up your ass!
And all these kids wanted to do was swim for a few hours!
one more thing, wasnt this swim club "private"?

That's what I thought. No sense denying the obvious truth is there.

Who's proposing we do that? And what does the government have to do with this pool?
BTW-- the fact that you "haven't seen" a double standard in the way stores treat blacks and whites is meaningless. Why WOULD you have noticed such a thing?? You're white.
Here's some homework for you. Find 5 black people, and ask THEM about their experiences shopping, and whether they feel they're treated differently than whites.
LOL....Oh I'm sure they'll tell everyone that they were treated differently because that's what they do best ! They are nothing more then crybabies who look for things to complain about. In the last two weeks there have been several blacks crying racism and it's never going to stop, they're looking for pay outs and we're their easy ticket.

Finally, the truth comes out! "I'll be white for the rest of my life." So you admit there are advantages and it's not all just a bunch of crap and people using the race card. I knew someone (some white loud mouth smart ass) would finally admit what everyone already knew! Thanks!

It's time to take away their charter and close the club if they continue to break the law and remain a racist entity.
Be honest and admit that you are a bunch of racists.
Stop the bull crack racism. We american whites are sick and tired of hearing about it. THat was hundreds and hundreds years ago. Let go you weren't even alive. Has nothing to do with the white people today. Christ you see more white women today with black men? I guess there is no racism??????????

Im sick of racism too! Us dumb white boys can get any coochie anymore, all the white hoochies gone to da' BBC man. WTF is up with that anyway? And what do the black girls have to settle for these days. It seems 7 out of 10 black guys are with white girls. I betcha porn shops biggest sex toy buyers are black girls these days.. Blacks truly arent as big as women think, for real though. Then the white girls end up getting their lives screwed up by going thru that black lovin phase and finding out they arent as huge as the myth states. I feel sorry for some of the white girls though. Others though I dont, they think they are 'cool' by getting with a black guy due to hip hop and gangsta culture being the 'in' crowd these days. The meek will truly soon inherit the earth. the meek, stinking, hustlin' and lazy that is.

It's really weird. For the longest time I had assumed all black people were angry towards and hated whites. That is until I started meeting more blacks and going to events where there were predominantly black people. I was shocked that I wasn't looked at funny or called names or anything like that. On the contrary, I felt very much welcome and included. Or maybe they just hold their opinion until I'm not in the room.

Regardless, I have witnessed numerous anger and offenses directed towards black people openly. It's baffling to me how anyone could behave like this??? These are just my personal experiences.

Everything seems to becoming a racial issue?
What is this world coming to?
How can you honestly judge someone because of their color of skin?
Im a white 14 year old girl, and have many black friends. There for i will speak about racial issues, i'm totally against it, and i really do not understand how a color of skin can cause so much hate. It's stupid, and dumb, and completely makes you look like an ass. Blacks are equal with whites, the only thing different, is skin color, and did you know that's the largest organ on your body? So they are living with the same organs as us, they have feelings, and they think the same. For gods sake we have a black president! I DO NOT SEE THE PROBLEM! if you have a problem, explain!

You are right about Pensacola. It is so heartbreaking how racist it is there. I had lived there and a white neighbor started stalking me before my moving truck was finished unloading it. I told him to get the hell off my yard, and stay away from me, no negotiating. He was angry because we are biracial and of course we should have been accommodating to the white man. So he started calling the police in the middle of most nights claiming we had drug activities going on. Of course we were just in there sleeping with my two terrified daughters 3 and 5 years old next to me. The deputies were clearly, and did not try to hide it, in the KKK, and were happy to come banging on my door at 2 am each night.
I finally took them to court and tried to get a restraining order, but the black judge fell asleep on the stand. I could not believe it. I was not even able to get a restraining order against this guy. The guy said he was just trying to get the N's out of the neighborhood, and the judge did not take offense to him.
I moved of course. But it is not fair at all. I miss the beach so much and it is so pretty there. It is so sad what a pitiful place it is there!! I hope that the blacks there will soon grow tired of such sick behavior and fight back!! They act like they were just freed from slavery and don't quite realize they have rights. So sad, so far behind the times. I wonder if they don't notice the president is black??
