They're pulling the race card on this issues?
Fuck them. They need to get their asses back to Africa.
I keep saying Rand Paul needs to be the next POTUS.
I told you, just more of the same. And after calling Obama every name in the book, they now settle for calling him a king.
You can't script this shiite any better, oh the humanity!
and this is for you DOMS right from the words of Ayn Rand herself:
"The overwhelming majority of racists are men who have earned no sense of personal identity, who can claim no individual achievement or distinction, and who seek the illusion of a "tribal self-esteem" by alleging the inferiority of some other tribe."
"The American Psychiatric Association has never officially recognized extreme racism (as opposed to ordinary prejudice) as a mental health problem, although the issue was raised more than 30 years ago. After several racist killings in the civil rights era, a group of black psychiatrists sought to have extreme bigotry classified as a mental disorder. The association's officials rejected the recommendation, arguing that because so many Americans are racist, even extreme racism in this country is normative?a cultural problem rather than an indication of psychopathology.
The psychiatric profession's primary index for diagnosing psychiatric symptoms, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), does not include racism, prejudice, or bigotry in its text or index.1 Therefore, there is currently no support for including extreme racism under any diagnostic category. This leads psychiatrists to think that it cannot and should not be treated in their patients.
To continue perceiving extreme racism as normative and not pathologic is to lend it legitimacy. Clearly, anyone who scapegoats a whole group of people and seeks to eliminate them to resolve his or her internal conflicts meets criteria for a delusional disorder, a major psychiatric illness.
Extreme racists' violence should be considered in the context of behavior described by Allport in The Nature of Prejudice.2 Allport's 5-point scale categorizes increasingly dangerous acts. It begins with verbal expression of antagonism, progresses to avoidance of members of disliked groups, then to active discrimination against them, to physical attack, and finally to extermination (lynchings, massacres, genocide). That fifth point on the scale, the acting out of extermination fantasies, is readily classifiable as delusional behavior.
More recently, Sullaway and Dunbar used a prejudice rating scale to assess and describe levels of prejudice.3 They found associations between highly prejudiced people and other indicators of psychopathology. The subtype at the extreme end of their scale is a paranoid/delusional prejudice disorder.
Using the DSM's structure of diagnostic criteria for delusional disorder,4(p329) I suggest the following subtype:
Prejudice type: A delusion whose theme is that a group of individuals, who share a defining characteristic, in one's environment have a particular and unusual significance. These delusions are usually of a negative or pejorative nature, but also may be grandiose in content. When these delusions are extreme, the person may act out by attempting to harm, and even murder, members of the despised group(s).
Extreme racist delusions can also occur as a major symptom in other psychotic disorders, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Persons suffering delusions usually have serious social dysfunction that impairs their ability to work with others and maintain employment.
As a clinical psychiatrist, I have treated several patients who projected their own unacceptable behavior and fears onto ethnic minorities, scapegoating them for society's problems. Their strong racist feelings, which were tied to fixed belief systems impervious to reality checks, were symptoms of serious mental dysfunction. When these patients became more aware of their own problems, they grew less paranoid?and less prejudiced.
It is time for the American Psychiatric Association to designate extreme racism as a mental health problem by recognizing it as a delusional psychotic symptom. Persons afflicted with such psychopathology represent an immediate danger to themselves and others. Clinicians need guidelines for recognizing delusional racism in all its forms so that they can provide appropriate treatment. Otherwise, extreme delusional racists will continue to fall through the cracks of the mental health system, and we can expect more of them to explode and act out their deadly delusions."

Is Extreme Racism a Mental Illness?
Blacks account for 12.3% of the population and responsible for ~50% (over 4x per capita) of all known murders and ~25% (over 2x per capita) of know burglaries.
And like this...
But hey, when the facts are so fundamentally against your self image, go ahead and pretend that everyone is equal.
knife which can inject a ball of compressed gas into its victim that instantly freezes internal organs.
The 'wasp knife', which can deliver a ball of compressed gas capable of killing its victim at the press of a button, may be heading for Britain, the Metropolitan Police fear.
A needle in the tip of the blade shoots out the frozen ball of gas which instantly balloons to the size of a basketball, freezing organs.
the two things I despise the most in this world is intentional ignorance and racism/bigotry.
Also, do I also really need to trot out your racist posts again?
Enjoy that denial and the "moral high ground" that comes with it.
LAM is the biggest racist on this forum. :coffee:
I was going to disagree with your statement, but then I though, who's the bigger racist? The person that openly professes it, or the person that denies it and accuses?
My understanding of racism is that it's a fundamental belief that a persons personality/intelligence/morals are determined by skin color. You're just pointing out that black American culture is fucked up, but not all blacks are bad.
The kkk and others on this forum are actually racists, you're just being real and objective.
Racism has become currency to purchase emotional thinkers.
blacks and hispanics make up the largest offenders of street crime, etc. in the US which they clearly do. they also comprise the largest percentage of those in the lowest income quintiles. study after study has shown inside and outside the US that street crimes are a function of concentrated rural poverty and not that of race. country's that do not have multicultural diversity in their populations also show that those in the lowest income quintiles commit the vast majority of street crimes, etc. clearly objective evidence that proves street crime has nothing at all to do with race/ethnicity.
country's that have much lower levels of street crime and poverty also spend substantially more on social protections then the US which spends the 3rd lowest amount as a percentage of GDP in the OECD. they also have lower levels of low paid workers in the lowest income quintile. aka..they have lower levels of concentrated rural poverty, hence lower levels of street crimes. on the other hand the US has the highest percentage of low paid workers out of all the wealthy industrialized country's in the OECD at 25% of the total labor force.
over the years latin american country's have reduced violent crime by increasing wages. in PR when the Navy bases were closed years ago and the economy went to shit, do you know what happened crime increased.
wow..who would have thought that there is a clear direct correlation between street crime and income....:hmmm:
