    Apparently, black cops, guards, etc. are believed to be immune from charges of racist injuries to black civilians EVEN IF they are inflicting an injury on blacks only.

    Kinda like how, after Obama, black Americans' complaints about racism magically became completely baseless.

All summer, every summer, anyone who enforces rules are called racist for doing so.

    You are only asking for my card because I am black'. 'You are only saying I can't have these guests because I am black'. I've had black neighbor friends tell me directly to my face that management is racist. One of them had a Chow dog (against the rules) and let it go around off leash (another rule broken) and he was a very nice guy. My best dog walking buddy at the time. He said he was hassled because they are racist, I was like no it's because Chows are a banned breed, not black people!
    I see, you don't believe your "black neighbor friends" when they tell you something like that?

    There are several possibilities.

    1) Chow owner sincerely believes white homeowners freely keep banned dog breeds without getting hassled.

    2) White HOA officials sincerely believe Chow owner mentions racism only so as to evade the rule.

    3) Chow owner was, in fact, singled out for harsher treatment by racists in the HOA.

    4) This kerfuffle is the result of a dispute between neighbors, and both are assholes.

    Etc.

    Maybe if you tried enforcing them on the white people too they wouldn't be called racist?

    They cannot look around and see white people in violation.
    Of course, it's always the black people breaking the rules isn't it?

    Every summer all summer for 13 years now, these people do not consistently feel racism is in play for simply asking rules to be followed.
    These people? I guess if they don't "consistently" feel racism is at play it's just most of the time?

    When these rules are enforced on white people, they might get agitated and argue, but when enforced for black people, there is the additional accusation of racism.

    Our guards ARE black. It doesn't make a difference. It's made up BS to have a bigger argument.

    I know a black owner here who will not rent his unit to other black people. Because they always use the black thing when they are late on rent or whatever problem there is. 'come on, help a brother out'. This is from his mouth, not mine. I was appalled and sort of argued with him over that (it is against the law, yanno), and he just shook his head, no, he said he has been owning units and renting them for decades, and this is his experience, so no more black tenants.

    Only ONE side of racism is ever discussed, never the other.
    Maybe this attitude would be better addressed by people not always assuming in advance that people are going to act a certain way because of their race. That would apply to both whites and blacks.

    For all you know the "you're a racist" attitude comes from experiencing it, just like your cynicism about people "playing the race card" comes from having experienced it.

    I think the current climate and epidemic of passive aggression by hostile people is making everything worse. Try to take people at face value and deal with them honestly and respectfully and don't make assumptions about them that you don't want made about you.

    Not the one with the Chow dog that was hassled for having a Chow dog, and for letting it run around off leash, no. If they did not also enforce white people having pits and whatnot I would have agreed with him and even fought for his dog regarding 'selective enforcement' but that was not the case. I had nothing to help him with other than advise to walk the dog on a leash at night like everyone else with an illegal dog did. At night there was a sea of large dog walkers who were hiding from this enforcement, 99% white people. One (white) guy was smuggling his dog in and out everyday in a laundry sack - they were coming for all the dogs they could see, having nothing to do with the color of the people.

    It was horrible, but there was nothing racist about it.

    I believe you broke my irony meter with this post.

    BTW, condemning racism has fuckall to do with "condemning whites".

    Jesus Fucking Christ. This extreme lust SOME white male Christians have for a victim card marked "race" is just astonishing.
    MELTDOWN when the truth is thrown in some people faces. The result of years of CNN, MSNBC, WashingtonPost, etc. conditioning, with little or no input from conservative (aka TRUTH) sources,... thereby sailing along in Ludicrous River.

    Just another case of racial discrimination is perfectly OK as long as blacks are the beneficiaries and whites are the victims. Chalk up one more applecart overturned.

    BTW - "white male Christians" ? What's this ? > racism, sexism, religion bigotry, all 3 wrapped up in one neat little package ? Strike 1. Strike 2. Strike 3.

    Sure! Because job hiring, job promotions, college admissions, college financial aid, business loans, and about 100 other things, are all going in favor of whites by way of Affirmative Action programs, right ? But of course.

    Is there a doctor (deprogrammer) in the house ? I mean really.

    In the perspective of the left, about anything short of bowing down to blacks, handing them jobs & money (regardless of qualification), and standing when they enter a room..........is RACIST. Perhaps we could all save time and effort if all libs would just wear T-shirts that say "YOU ARE RACIST", and then have everyone explain how they're not. roll eyes.jpg
