Lets be HONEST – Not JUST “clear,” but HONEST
Blacks have used their “minority” status to skirmish laws and policies that would otherwise apply to everyone.
This is not to says that the black community doesn’t have problems, but the truth is ALL communities have PROBLEMS. They may be different problems but they are still problems.
I’m white. I am an immigrant. Yet, I never had ANY of the privileges that accompany other races. I also, never DID anything that deserved the PUNISHMENTS that I get as a result.
My black counterparts have risen in their jobs, even the MALES. You hear about affirmative action for females, well not for a female who is white. The only position thats worse, I believe would be a white MALE. They are, now the MOST, disfranchised section of society. Wait ’till you see what comes of that.
Meanwhile, you have this garbage that was VOTED in or appointed in to his position.
THIS is a racist pig.
If a white male had said anything remotely this racist, he could have been physically removed and imprisoned on whatever drummed up charge they could think of.
I would like to ask this male what he thinks of Reverend Wright?
Would he find him repulsive? Or does he find the Wrights words ring true to him?
Where is the mainstream media on this one?

Racial and political tensions flared at a public meeting in Dallas County on Tuesday when the city’s Commissioner yelled to several citizens ‘all of you are white – go to hell!,’ after being referred to as ‘Chief Mulllah’ by a local tea party member.
The scene that saw Commissioner John Wiley Price storm out of the court room and challenging his critics to follow him into the street to argue took place in Dallas County Commissioner’s Court during the public question portion of the meeting.
Dallas lawyer and tea party member Jeff Turner was the last to take to the podium to address the floor. While speaking to the room, Turner referred to Price as Dallas County’s ‘Chief Mullah’ and used the word ‘tribal.’
The repeated jabs and references to ‘Mullah’ – a term Merriam-Webster defines as ‘an educated Muslim trained in religious law and doctrine and usually holding an official post’ – triggered Price’s well-known temper. As Turner spoke, Price replied ‘don’t call me Chief Mulllah’ and “call me by my name.’
Turner’s provocations came at the end the meeting’s string of citizen speakers, all of whom referred to last month’s controversial ousting of long-time Elections Administrator Bruce Sherbet.
Sherbet, who was Dallas’ Elections Administrator since 1987, has said he felt that he was forced out of office by County Judge Clay Jenkins and Commissioner Price. Both Jenkins and Price have denied Sherbet’s accusations.
As Price protested Turner’s language the court erupted in shouts directed at the Commissioner. At one point Price asked ‘why are all of the speakers white?’
Jenkins, who was the judge presiding over the meeting, quickly banged his gavel to call an adjournment and told the court to have their personal discussions outside. This egged the crowd on further and they continued to yell at an indignant Price.
‘You’ve asked respect of us. We demand respect from you,’ an audience member yelled.
As Price stood to leave, he looked at Turner and the five other citizens who addressed the court, saying to them, ‘All of you are white. Go to hell!’ He repeated the phrase ‘go to hell!’ several more times to the onlookers.
As he exited the court, an unknown member of the audience said, ‘you should be ashamed!’ to which Price replied ‘I’m not ashamed! Go to hell!’
Price then stood by a side exit to the court and challenged his critics to speak to him outside.
‘You, too, fat boy,’ Price said to the Reverend Bill Lovell, a Republican election judge and a critic of Price’s conduct.
After Price exited the court, the county’s chief of security and officers blocked the exit so Lovell could not follow him, and directed the reverend to another exit. They then turned down the lights and asked everyone to leave.
‘I’ve never been so disappointed in county government,’ Lovell said to the press after the heated meeting.
Turner was equally aghast at the Commissioner’s language and conduct.
‘I’ve never heard such behaviour,’ Turner said. ‘He completely lost it.’
Speaking to CBS News in Dallas-Fort Worth, Turner explained why he used the term Chief Mullah to refer to Price.
HERE’s SOME MORE HISTORY OF THIS RACIST BLACK MALEVodpod videos no longer available.
‘I used the world Chief Mullah simply because…we’re talking about people or men who control a particular area and nothing gets done without their knowledge and approval. And that’s how I see Price. He’s the man behind the scenes running everything, and I don’t want that for Dallas County,’ Turner said.
Price said to Dallas News that Turner referring to him as ‘Mullah’ is ‘racist as hell,’ and later released a written statement reacting to the incident.
‘The comments were bad enough, but to have them hurled by a member of the Tea Party, known for their racial insensitivity, was more than I plan to absorb,’ Price wrote.
‘This is in no way an attempt to apologize to those with who felt the need to infuse race into an otherwise orderly meeting. But all of my friends, black, white and brown alike, are well aware that I am always willing to debate, but never at the expense of my race and my heritage,’ he added.
