empathy and sympathy have nothing to do with understanding others views

and we are not forcing our way of government around the world, we are giving people the choice to rule themselves in the way they want.
I truly doubt any country we liberate will have a similar government to us
other than the people were involved in creating it, and the people vote

and once again, it looks like the New Kids On The Block are left to clean up the messes of other countries, ie. Britains, Frances, etc....
It is their Empires that has the Muslims against us. The fact that America is the leader and the strongest of the Western World, is why we are the target of their rage and hatred
theres my

Of course, after Britain, the US was heavily involved for national interest in the region as well. IN the last century, our presence there isn't out of benevolence (an extremely naiive thing to believe). IT is purely for oil and strategic interest. its the same reason Britain was there and France was there. This presence is what got Muslims to hate us. Muslims for example hate the Saudi Government with a passion. They see us supportin them. They hate us. Do i blame them? No. If I lived in a dictatorship, and was surrounded by muslim extremist leaders, and then saw the US (who propogatess freedom and democracy) supporting this dictatorship, I would ahte the US as well.

One story that bothered me was one of which a small group maybe 4 or less of English and Australian whites had to be POLICE ESCOURTED out of the Superdome because thier lives were being threatened just because they were white.
I'll see if I can find a link to support it, but...
If your a white guy who has ever been in a room full of blacks you always notice how you suddenly get treated a lot less respectul than if there was a racially diverse crowd.

Dont know but it has since been reported that most of that was made up...Are you saying that all Blacks do this?Are you saying that Whites are above that sort of behavior?.......Are you really sure that you dont idolize those Slavemasters?

Of course all blacks don't behave like that. But it disgusts me how the majority think that we owe them something. Reparations or something. If anything, they should be thanking us for bringing them over here from that disgusting, murky, primitive, tribe-like continent they call Africa.

Enslaved African labor was necessary for the survival of European colonial economies in the Americas from the 16th through the 19th centuries......But this is off topic and you can open another thread in which I will gladly tell you of the Black contribution to this society

So you were to think that if a black woman were sitting in a room in, lets say, San Francisco, in a room full of queer white men, they would steal her purse and run off somewhere?

Get real dude.
That was an ignorant claim.

Whats ignorant is you using extremes like that......unless you are saying that a white woman would have something to fear sitting in a room full of gay Black men....is that what you are saying?....Dont talk to me about racism untill you are Black and have to listen to an Affirmative Action lecture every year telling you that White people are required by law to treat you like an equal (skillfully making yourself the yardstick to be measured by)

Sarcasm is hard to tell without tone of voice.
