    This is why conservatives pull the persecution card. It justifies their belief that God chose them out of the world and makes them feel morally superior.

    John 15:18“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.


    It's a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    In this context "white people" = "priviledged people", because privileged people are typically white. Now are you going to calm down or just continue to be far more insulting than that picture ever was?

    I say all this as a white person, by the way. If people would stop screaming "RACISM!" every single time they see something that references skin colour, it might actually stop being such a problem for many people. Racists justify their behaviour by pointing at posts like yours.

    I guess if I posted a picture saying something about black people it would be ok, oh wait no it wouldn't you and all the other liberals here would soon harp on me for being a racist whitie, isn't that right?

    As far as being insulting goes, what is more insulting than that picture which insults an entire group of people?

    Things like that picture, IE RACISM, are actually the things that promote racism. How you attempted to flip this on me as ME helping to justify racist behavior, I will never understand. Probably because it's a bunch of BS.

    One, generalisations are bad (i.e., "you and all the other liberals"). They're something I'd expect from a fundamentalist but I would have expected better from you. Your assumption that I am a liberal is interesting, however. Do you accuse everyone you disagree with of having different political views? No wonder your country's politics is based upon hatred of the other side.

    Two, it depends on whether you were making a racist statement with said picture or not. The presence or mention of a particular skin colour does not make something racist. For example, if you were making a comment based upon the historical fact that black people were slaves, this would not be racist; if you were saying that we should go back to having black people as slaves, that would be racist.

    Three, don't make assumptions about me or other people, especially about how someone would react in a certain situation. It makes you look stupid.

    You're creating racism and offence where none existed. Unless you are denying that white people have been historically privileged, you really have nothing to go on here.

    I'm going to drop this here because it's off-topic and isn't worth debating over. Feel free to have the last word, if you want.

    I'm not making assumptions at all, I see it every day here. I know exactly what would happen if I posted a picture with a caption that said "There's real problems, and then there's Asian problems." "You're so racist, SI!" Do you really think I am making an extraordinary claim here and I require some type of extraordinary evidence? Am I claiming to be a baker's good or something?

    Anyway, because white people may or may not be historically privileged changes nothing here.

    Who is assuming you are liberal anyway? It says in your profile, really not assuming anything. Oh, but you're not "the liberal I'm thinking of". I guess that makes you new age and hip or something.

    P.S. I consider myself pretty liberal, I'm just different from most of the ones here and I tend to call out other liberals when they say something idiotic.

    Some folks never seem to get that people just don't like them because they are rude and mean and not because of what ever religion they have.

    The Klezbians have mutilated famous Christmas songs giving us abominations such as "Silent Nacht - Jewish Bell", "It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Chanukah", "Noah El" and "Frosty the Snow Mensch".

    Was listening to classy Laura Ingrahm tonight during one of her ****** rants about Michelle Obama. Apparently she felt the use of first dog Beau as a decoration was an attack on Christmas for some crazy reason.

    Bah! What did Roger Williams know about Christmas or religious freedom.

    Naughty or Nice?

    AFA's 2011 listing of top retailers and how they recognize Christmas

    Color Code:
    GREEN: Company uses the term "Christmas" on a regular basis, we consider that company Christmas-friendly.
    YELLOW: Company refers to Christmas infrequently, or in a single advertising medium, but not in others.
    RED: Company may use "Christmas" sparingly in a single or unique product description, but as a company, does not recognize it.

    It's funny how Christians always use the term "Judeo-Christian" but throw a complete temper tantrum if anyone actually acknowledges the Jewish holiday near Christmas by saying "happy holidays." WAAAAH ONLY MENTION OOOOOUR HOLIDAY WAAAAAAAAAH.

    Nothing makes me laugh harder than people getting all up in arms over business NOT exploiting their religion for profit.
