Newest Michigan museum showcases racist artifacts...ok, which room has the Farakahn artifacts?

The objects displayed in Michigan's newest museum range from the ordinary, such as simple ashtrays and fishing lures, to the grotesque — a full-size replica of a lynching tree. But all are united by a common theme: They are steeped in racism so intense that it makes visitors cringe. That's the idea behind the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia, which says it has amassed the nation's largest public collection of artifacts spanning the segregation era, from Reconstruction until the civil rights movement, and beyond. The museum in a gleaming new exhibit hall at Ferris State University "is all about teaching, not a shrine to racism," said David Pilgrim, the founder and curator who started building the collection as a teenager.

The “African-American” segment of our population(about 13%) has done a commendable job of daily proving their African hertigae and roots—tribalism, savagery and violence. Either they step up to the plate as AMERICANS, or go back to their ancestral roots and start their own country.

Well, the liberal view is that the southern Democrats who passed Jim Crow laws were out of the mainstream of the Democrat party.

And then the liberals talk about how Strom Thurmond and other old southern Democrats became Republicans in big numbers after the civil rights movement. In the liberal mind, this proves that they weren’t really good Democrats to start with.

I have come to the inevitable conclusion that there are far worse things in the world than racism...but try telling that to a liberal racist!

Definitely not at the top of my “What to do in Michigan” list.
If I would ever get there it would be to see how many lakes I could hit in two weeks with my fishing boat.

I want to see the mummy of Bill Clinton’s real father, Byrd’s hood and robe and Woodrow Wilson’s diary.

Forced diversity is one of those things.

People are often shocked when I say that a business should be able to refuse service based on race, sex religion etc. The simple fact is that most businesses that imposed such policies would fail because of them and even if they thrived, who cares? Others would open businesses that catered to the customers banned from other places.

Our Michigan ban on smoking in bars is a beautiful example of how wrong it is. Instead of letting bar owners decide whether to cater to one clientele or another they forced all bar owners to ban something as common as drinking in their establishments.

You should write to our governor and tell him that. Instead we waste millions on the "Pure Michigan" campaign to tell people about golf courses, resorts and museums. Out door type recreational things are the primary tourist draw to Michigan.

“Forced diversity is one of those things.”

If you mean multi-culturalism and how public education institutions and other liberal meccas espouse it the way they do...and what the reality of it amounts to socially then yeah, that’s what I’m talking about.

Multiculturalism practically guarantees that ethnicity and race are first and foremost in the minds of those who willingly participate. It’s racism but not in classic sense.

As somebody who doesn’t willingly “participate”, I’m labeled a racist and a hater of people different than me by people who don’t care to look beyond the color of my skin. They say, “Don’t hate, participate”.

I hate it when they do that.

Save their gas and just have them watch the closing credits of Spike Lee’s “Bamboozled.”

I don’t know how large the “Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia” is, but if the knucklehead founder wants to broaden his scope to cover racism in general, he will have to have multiple wings to cover the racism coming from “Rev.” Jeremiah Wright, Van Jones, Eric Holder, Cynthia McKinney, Sheila Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, most of the rest of the Congressional Black Caucus, “Rev.” Al Sharpton, “Rev.” Jessee Jackson, New Black Panthers, blacks who admit they will vote for Zero in numbers approaching 95% simply because he’s black, National Negro College Fund, BET, etc., etc., ad nauseum.

How ‘bout getting back to me on that, David Pilgrim?

More blacks were killed by fellow blacks LAST YEAR than by all the lynchings from the civil war to the present. The museum is a monument to victim-hood - a non-stop pity party. Yes, what happened to blacks back then was WRONG. Evil. We all know that... But, if these folks really cared about the senseless deaths of blacks, they would STOP the slaughter in their own neighborhoods today.

The Jim Crow laws in America are not without parallel but they were certainly fairly unique to American History. This seems like a topic worthy of a museum. It doesn’t have to be America hating any more than our local Holocaust Museum should be equated with “Why We Hate Germany”.

OTOH, I’ve also been to the Funeral Museum, The Doc Porter Museum of Telephone History, The Museum of Girl Scout History, and the Fie House Museum. That’s just what’s in the Houston area so I’m fairly certain that I attend Museu s a lot of other people would find deadly dull.

I’d like to see the hyperlink to this thread show up in the museum e-mail’s inbox.

Any takers? If not, I’ll do it myself...Fair, balanced and unafraid!

Jim Crow laws were put in place by DEMOCRATS.

Bull Conner was a Democrat.

George Wallace was a Democrat.

The only serving member of the Senate who was ALSO a member of the KKK was Robert Byrd - a Democrat.

The Governor who put the confederate battle flag on the State Flag of South Carolina - in the 60's - and served many many more years WAS A DEMOCRAT.

Blacks need to wake up to reality... The only democrat politician who switched parties and became Republican was Maddox. The rest of them stayed Democrat...

Democrats were also the people to come up with the first 'gun control' laws - aimed at keeping black people from having guns.

Oh, and yeah - Lincoln was a Republican.

Uh. OK. I was responding to the first post on the subject. The one about someone having too much time on their hands and asking why not just build a Why I Hate America museum. Your comment doesn't seem to be responding to the original or my response at all. I didn't say partisan comment one.

Is there a new black pamper wing?

We could blow up the wanted posters for zimmerman and use it as wallpaper.
