Recently, DIGG, a social bookmarking site, banned RFD America
for racist content. The post, "There Are No Cowards Here,"
caught the eye of some sensitive type, and without any discussion, we were banned. When someone calls you a racist, it stops you in your tracks. I was hurt, and frankly, frightened. Am I a racist? The reaction to being labeled something you're not is universal, and those who pin labels on others know it. But after some intense soul-searching, I've once come up with a clear conscious--I'm not a racist. I've never been mean to someone because of their color or religion, ever. But I have serious questions about the state of race relations in this country. I love my country, and if we don't have this conversation, we run the risk of tearing the fabric of our Nation beyond repair.
So, I'll start off the dialogue. I think affirmative action and other race-based Government programs are wrong. They breed contempt among groups that are, well, discriminated against. I think the anti-white rhetoric, especially that aimed at white males, is not only wrong, but dangerous. I think black leaders like Al Sharpton are dangerous bigots; I think the Obama Administration is full of smiling bigots.
I am willing to have a discussion about race with anyone of any color. I understand that feelings might get hurt, and things might get heated. But if don't engage in honest dialogue, we will certainly meet the same fate as South Africa. So, let's talk about race. NO CRY BABIES!
