O'Brien must be a racist. Remember when Glenn Beck said, "Okay, black person, you're clearly uncomfortable...."

What we have here is another foolish woman stuck in the past. She is overlooking the lion in the room, the ever growing Hispanic population, and the combinations and permutations among black, white, and Hispanic peoples, not to mention the Muslims.

She (like many others) earns a living from the “racial grievance industry”; in the new economy, all of the job growth is in this sector, along with the “poverty industry” and “public education industry”.

Jesse Jackson used to be frank about race; he called abortion “genocide” and said he felt safer if the people walking towards him on a city street were white. I’ve never met whites afraid of taking about race; they were simply afraid of being punished for being honest about it.

I had no idea who she was so I Googled her. Uhhh. If I was asked to describe this woman to a police officer, I would have said "looks like Katie Couric's younger brunette sister."

But hey, if Elizabeth Warren gets to be an American Indian then I guess O'Brien can be black, mexican, spanish... whatever.

I have found it is difficult for some Black and other people to admit, much less give gratitude, to the fact that during the Civil War 330,000 White Union military KNOWINGLY fought and died in pursuit of their government directives to free the slaves. The 330,000 equated to one free White’s death for every Black slave freed in the Confederate states.
Doubt that it will be mentioned by Whites or Blacks this Memorial Day. Screw up the “YOU OWE ME!!” theme.

With all of Soledad’s race specials on CNN, does anyone know if she has ever focused on the exorbitant number of black abortions in this country every day? Estimates range from 800 to 1500 daily. This sets women up for Post-Abortion Syndrome, drug and alcohol abuse, depression, neglected children and more dysfunctional, out-of-wedlock births.

Soledad O'Brien: 'OK, white person, this is a conversation you clearly are uncomfortable with'

Ok, you ignorant, racist tart, here's some facts that are clearly going to shatter your world. It's not about race.

We're beyond that. It's about freedom, the same stuff you'd willingly squander. We think you're stupid, and you keep proving it to the point where we've washed our hands of you.

So go ahead and kick and scream about race. We'll continue to live our lives and surround ourselves with friends who reflect our values regardless of race or culture. It's content of character, not wallet that motivates us, you wouldn't understand, it's an integrity thing.

So go ahead and live your pathetic lives. You are less than nothing to us and when push comes to shove, we have something worth pushing back for. In the end, you'll crawl back under your rock, perhaps a little wiser for the error of your ways.

But I doubt it. Begone, worm!

” The 330,000 equated to one free White’s death for every Black slave freed in the Confederate states.”

Interesting point. I’ve read that the slave population in the south in 1860 was around 4 million. Where do you get the 330,000 figure?

All that needs to be said is,
Ok Black person. That's all, and the attacks would be frothing.

Promoting Blacks to hate Whites constantly is hate speech according to their rules.
But since when do Leftist rules apply to the dogma of the lunatic left, never does.

Us Crackers are fully aware of the division, because the Leftist media

O'Brien added: "I was like, again, 'OK, white person, this is a conversation you clearly are uncomfortable with, and I have no problem seeing race, and I think we should talk about race."

OK, valley girl, it's like this: in the US, conversations about race are generally one-sided, with the black/liberal side lecturing whites about what they should believe.

Any public disagreement by any white person with the politically-correct position, will get the white person labeled "racist" and hounded out of his job. Especially if the job is in media.

THAT is why white people are uncomfortable having such conversations.

My favorite is the ‘dialog on race’ bs.

The word ‘dialog’ normally implies a two-way conversation but not when used with the word ‘race.’

‘Dialog on race’ means ‘let’s list all the various reasons we think white people should be ashamed of themselves.’

“A lot of them were drafted and rich people could buy themselves out of the draft. Just saying I can excuse a lot of them for that reason.”
I’ve heard that argument from some people who also added “The War was to save the Union, not free slaves.”
1) if you are drafted and died following the directives of your government, you are as dead as if you volunteered....e.g., WW II;
2)the people who bought their way out of the draft, not necessarily rich, did not die or even serve.
I did not say they were happy to die, or even liked Blacks, but DIE they did in pursuit of freeing them and even voted for those men who directed them to fight, die and free the slaves.

From the 1860 census excluding border states like Maryland, Kentucky, etc. Slaves in those states had to wait for their freedom.
The Emancipation Proclamation applied only to Confederate states. The Radical Republicans (Anti-slavers) controlled Congress throughout the Civil War and stiffened Lincoln’s position to make the War about Slavery rather than Union alone.

I still hear the echo of sunday school:

I don’t judge people by outward things but I am a real bigot when it comes to behavior. Unfortunately, homos ARE the behavior and many people ARE the behavior.

When O’Brien reports the daily black on white crimes the same as they would had they been white on black, that is when we can have a real conversation on racial issues.

Soledad lost her news job because she’s a nasty little racist.

She claims to want a “conversation” on race with white people but she’d pop her cork if white people matched her racial aggression, scapegoating and nasty attitude in a “conversation.” It would be more like a screaming match on the way to a brawl.

What she wants is preferences for blacks, without regard to merit, instituted across the board. And she wants whites totally excluded from opportunity regardless of merit across the board.
