You want my honest opinion. The bum should have to undergo drug and psyhcological testing. I have to agree, this isn't about race. It's about plain and simple stupidity in it's purest form. A man like that has no business looking after the educational needs of children. If anyone had ever said something along those lines to one of my kids, I would have decked him with all the strength I could muster. What the HE!! was he NOT thinking........gfp

i think you should reread the whole article , the real mistake was made by what was said to the little girl, no matter what race she is, she,s a child and why would a supposely adult say something like that to a child , as for the other fellow and his attentions, he was only looking to further his policital ambitions at the expense of anybody even a child , so what,s new? a policition will stoop to any level no matter what stripe, they are all lower than a gutter rat and when the public starts seeing them for what they really are and demading better or get involved themselves will things hopefully improve.until then we are stuck with this kind of trash .

I'm not defending this Riordan guy, not in the least. But when the NAACP suddenly finds out that this little girl is white, they drop her like a hot potato. She's no longer worth anything to them. And they wonder why they have no credibility.

Tha back back sliding is a real sign of a bigot.

Don't "white" children have rights that can be violated? Why wan't the demostration held just because? A "citizen" was insulted? This is why the blacks and other groups are still fighting discrimination, they seem to separate themselves from other ethnic groups instead of trying to disolve the race lines.

My point precisely. Any time you start looking at people as groups instead of individuals, whatever kind of group it may be, you make things worse. I'd rather take each person and each case separately.

In a perfect world...

In the USA we would all be Americans
or people working toward becoming Americans
(not African, Asian, or Latin-Americans).

All men regardless of race or color would be men.

The same would be true for women, teenagers and children.

That would be how a perfect world would be.

Ethnic divisions and labels just tend to seperate us
into divided groups instead of being the United States of Americans.

As the commercial goes "We dont live in Perfect.....
..and we wont as long as there are groups
and agencies that derive their very existance
from division.

same here lenore , they come to canada seeking a better way of life for themselves and their families but then they can,t seem to leave their old country behind , they become indian canadians, chinese canadians, mulisum canadians, etc. and they seem to want to change canada into what they left behind, seems they could of just saved themselves a whole bunch of money and time by just staying put and putting little effort into making what they wanted where they were.the one thing that does seem to be happening to a small degree up here is the kids born here are growing up to be for the most part , (i hope ) to be proud to be canadian and are not always embracing the old ways that their parents left behind, but then some of course are and we are haveing quite a bit of problems in the big cities where different groups form their on societies.

just reread my post up above to lenore, and it seems to me to be a bit racists, i don,t think i am, i may be , i didn,t intend for that post to be thats for sure, what i was trying to say when folks come here they don,t seem to want to assimilate into the canadian culture , it,s fine to keep their culture and hertiage alive, but they should not expect their chosen country to change for them and often they do , it seems to me any way.i still maintain the real minority in this country is the tractor loving male.we need rights too lol.

That first "racist" post was by some imposter named "toolmen" LOL.

Toolman, I understand your statement and it is not racist. I believe most imigrants would assimilate into the country if they were just left alone by agitators. These groups and organizations live off of the unrest they cause. Like I said they derive their very existance and money by dividing people into seperate and unhappy complainers instead of hardworking successful achievers.
