    I didn't write the sentence, clearly you might need to work on reading comprehension.

    FWIW, there's also nothing wrong with the structure of the sentence.

    The rest of the sentence obviously softens the blow, but the statement taken as a whole is very cracist.

    Why in the world is ok for minorities to compound the racist history of America by using it as "payback".

    Statements like RGIII made are what progress this society beyond it's past. Stop singling out ethnic groups and they will stop being discriminated against.

    It's quite sad that the most likely "cure" for this is a few generations of mixed ethnicity children LITERALLY blurring the lines between ethnic groups making the process of seperating them more difficult.

    You didn't write what sentence? I just cut off your quote. It doesn't matter because I'm done with this stupid thread. I didn't think Irvins comment was racist myself but I understand that racism only goes one way in this country as evidenced by several commenters, including yourself. I have not the time or energy to get into this debate and I just took exception with your original claim based on textbooks.

    ETA: In response to the poster who said there's nothing wrong with the sentient structure.---

    Oh you're right. I just find it amusing that he doubled down on not understanding the sentence by advising someone who didn't write it to improve on their writing.

    Probbaly could have been split into two sentences, but yes, it reads correctly.

    It WASN'T MY QUOTE. Now you're tripling down on your poor reading comprehension.

    So the last thing we need right now is white people pointing out hypocrisy when it clearly is occurring? If you can't see the irony in that statement in the context of race then you shouldn't be participating in this discussion.

    So the color of a persons skin still has bearing not the content of their character. Got. It. The next paragraph in your response says all anyone needs to know I guess....

    4G63, again you are attributing AkashiaRecorder's words to ActualSpamBot... I think that is part of what you are missing...
