Your Say

The vilification of 'whites' is an incredible subversion of truth.

As is many, many other subversion (Capitalism-bad/Socialism-Good, Christianity-bad/Islam-good, etc...)

Future Historians (If Western Civ survives intact this crisis), I would think, would consider the 'Dawning of the Information Age' (radio, Broadcast TV, Movies, Mass Transit, Air Travel) as a time of a great perversion/exploitation of good solid truths by those who craved power.

I would think a perfect, and compact way to sum it up would be to call them the "Isaiah 5:20 years":

Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.

One more thing to add. A quote from Mark Twain that seems to fold in nicely with this thought of turning obvious truth on its head:

“A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”

Not gods. Just using their God-given talents, which are not exclusive to White people.

I do wonder what would have happened if Blacks had somehow gained control. Judging from their performance lately we might still be using outhouses.

Amen Chas.

Perfect example of cultural Group-think being detrimental to the individuals within.

It'd probably be better if those who self-identified as being 'black' would strike out on their own and cast off that culture and MAKE their own from the parts of other successful cultures. You know - like what our founding fathers did.

Probably start to prosper, too.

Happy Acres lifted your quote from Fred Reid.
