We are way too generous when we describe as simply ignorant those individuals who are virulently racist and who seek to reinterpret history in order to spread their own hatred.

Regardless of party, these racists were mostly too young to have been there to curse and to spit at these courageous students when they took their stand decades ago, so today they settle for doing so symbolically in safe and easy places like this comments section.

mo, just read some actual history texts and scholarly articles on things like the civil rights movement and politics, Nixon's southern strategy, etc. Most southern democrats turned to the republican party, as the northern democrats were pushing civil and voting rights for blacks. You are the one misinformed (as I would not stoop to calling you a liar), and all your posting on this comes from the revisionist history of the Fox Opinion Channel.

When I start seeing the same percentage of pictures of violent thugs in this paper as the percentage of the white population in Little Rock I'll quit associating race with violent crime.

When I start reading of white Little Rock neighborhoods with shootings and white residents refusing to co-operating with police I may change my mind.

When I start reading about Black "eye witnesses" who can give testimony in cops shooting Blacks that agrees with forensic evidence,I might change my mind.

When Black athletes and Black politicians chant " hands up. don't shoot" and know it was based on a lie, it solidifies my belief that many Blacks, including Barack HUSSEIN Obama , are some of the most racist people on earth !

And the resident racist has spoken. More a part of the problem than the solution. They always are.
