My grandfather was a WWiI vet ad pow, he spent 18 month in Hilter's Halton, a term for POW camp. He always said the German (true German) were fine people. It was the Nazi's that were the problem.

Don't argue with fools people can't tell who's the fool I have a problem with racist, and with people who feel they should get specail treatment for somethng that happen 140+ years ago, or any other group getting specail treatment for being this or that only. Groups like Vets, I have no problems with them getting some specail treatment, this don't mean a blank check to break of this nation laws, but I think you know what I mean.

I hold the Confedate Flag as a symbol of my heritage, not hate. Hate Groups that use it as such, really tick me off. In my mind, I am honoring the courage and duty to the men who served the cause.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

My 100% German grandfather fought in WW2 and was on the beach at Normandy.

You can't argue with idiots...they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Racism sucks, I agree with you there.
I have delt with it most my life.
I even went as far as going to the top at my last job. Lady made a comment and it went right through me. They learned, just cause you see one color dosnt mean there arent other colors in the family.
And God loves us all, color or race, so those so called christians, need to read the most important rule, which is Love.

Here ya go Small_Town_Girl... for the next time you talk to those .. "people" ... here's a gift for their gene pool.

the very said part is that most of us are prejudiced to some degree.No- wait a sec. It doesn't mean that you hate a certain group. It does mean that you prefer others. Life experience teaches us lessons. Some are subtle. For example, why do you prefer one color hair over another??? Doesn't your preference make you prejudiced ? More obvious would be like ...When I went to Vegas it was packed with oriental people that day. Now, I am no fan of large crowds and after several hours was thoroughly pissed off and DONE with being brushed against ( no excuse me), bumped, pushed etc and I walked away from that with a dislike of oriental people. ( or maybe just Oriental people who gamble. Or maybe more so crowds.) But does that mean I think oriental people who like to gamble and have different manners want world dominate?? maaaaaaaaaaaaybe.
