SORT BY Relevancy
Shirley Sherrod was forced to resign from the USDA for perceived racist comments at a NAACP event. In South Carolina a white man killed a black man and dragged his body behind a pickup truck. A member of the New Black Panther Party makes statements of killing white babies. A white man kills a black woman and drags her body behind his truck. Is racism on the rise? Do the scriptures give guidance on racism? Please feel free to phone into the Virtual Living room with your comments or questions.

Racism and ethnic discrimination in the United States has been a major issue since the colonial era and the slave era. Legally sanctioned racism sanctioned privileges and rights for White Americans not granted to Native Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans, and Latin Americans. European Americans (particularly Anglo Americans) were privileged by law in matters of education, immigration, voting rights, citizenship, land acquisition, and criminal procedure over periods of time extending from the 17th century to the 1960s. At the time, many non-Protestant groups immigrating from Europe - particularly Jews, Irish people, Poles and Italians - suffered xenophobic exclusion and other forms of ethnicity-based discrimination in the American society.
Major racially and ethnically structured institutions included slavery, Indian Wars, Native American reservations, segregation, residential schools for Native Americans, and internment camps. Formal racial discrimination was largely banned in the mid-20th century, and came to be perceived as socially unacceptable and/or morally repugnant as well.
Racial politics remains a major phenomenon. Racism continues to be reflected in socioeconomic inequality,and has taken on more modern, indirect forms of expression, most prevalently symbolic racism. Racial stratification continues to occur in employment, housing, education, lending, and government.
Websters – “Plague” – troublesome, fatal disease.
Causes: Media, Politics (Democrats mostly), Witnesses-biased and not reliable about 75% of the time, “Rednecks” of all colors and mostly Race hustlers/baiters- Al and Jessie, etc .
Normal Americans, who are in the majority, are not the problem. And we are the answer. We have to realize that we are the majority and act like it. We all must and should believe in ourselves and who we are. WE ARE NOT the sharptons and the jacksons.
What needs to be discussed is not what we know has been going on for too many years, but how to start combatting racism.
I have some thoughts on this and would like to discuss them “live’ On Sister Thunder Radio.
"Racism is as American as apple pie" is the highly publicized quote from student activist Stokely Carmichael (later Kwame Toure) during the 1960s protest movement. As supporters of white police officer Darren Wilson collect money for his defense in the killing of unarmed black teen Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri, members of a white supremist hate group send out a message referring to Michael Brown as a "N-----r Thug" and praise the work of the Ferguson police department in killing him. For them, Darren Wilson is a hero. Racial hatred is as American as apple pie. But is it also a reflection of serious mental instability, an irrational fear that could prompt people to commit violent acts? Is it a condition to be isolated and treated, the way one treats those who suffer from schizoprenia or dementia, or any other mental illness that produces delusional thinking? Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. referred to the racist whites that threatened his life as "our sick white brethren." Those who are treated badly by sick racists often spend a lot of time trying to convince themselves that they are worthy of respect, rather than recognizing that the illness is within those who do not know how to respect others. A healthy mind has the capacity to recognize the good in others. A sick mind does not. Would you vote someone into office who suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and might become a serial killer? Then why allow those with the mental illness of racism to continue to get elected as mayors, appointed as police chiefs, or sit in courtrooms as judges? Should racism be identified and treated like a mental illness? If so, shouldn't the responsibility for removing mentally sick people from positions of authority rest on those who are mentally well?
The events of the past few days reminded me that racism and prejudices are still alive and well in America.
Some of the conversations I have heard makes me wonder if we have made any headway in this centuries old battle, or should I say curse. It seems everytime I think we are making the turn in the right direction another "Ferguson" pops up and ruins the parade.
This morning we are going to have a discussion on racism/prejudices in America.
Do I expect to solve the issue in just ninety minutes? I wish! However, perhaps we can better expain where and why they exist and then go about our day with a little hope.
I hope you will join me "In the Pickle Barrel" at 7AM-8:30AM as we make an attempt to face some realities.
