Oh, and I have many heroes. When it comes to my intellectual heroes, I don't pay attention to their political beliefs. Unlike you, I actually read about all viewpoints and come to my conclusions of views without typecasting. I realize you prefer the intellectual shortcut by reading The Heritage Foundation so you know how to think.
You should watch Mississippi Burning, especially the scene where Gene Hackman is talking about his dad..you know, the one who shot his black neighbors mule because of jealousy.
Jealousy of others who are different because of your lack of success is simply just another way of defining hatred, bigotry, and prejudice.
Noticed in my text that I rightfully acknowledged the police dogs and water hoses that Dr. King endured was a courageous and admirable act.
Also noticed that you couldn’t bring yourself to honor the hundreds of thousands of Americans who died for such a noble cause.
You’re hatred for white people reveals itself more by what you won’t say, than by what you will.
