If he's lasted through 3000 posts, I seriously doubt that he feels threatened by my nuke. If I know Giles at all, he's probably more pissed off that you feel the need to rush to his defense.

I liked the way Giles said it, but I'm not an expert on how to make it happen. I know this much -- it's not a matter of blacks forgiving whites for slavery; it's a matter of whites forgiving themselves for slavery. Blacks didn't put into place the Jim Crow laws that governed society, especially in the south, for nearly 100 years after the Civil War; whites did. Blacks didn't enact the Civil Rights Act or any of the other crap that has tilted our playing field so radically the other way for 50 years; whites did. Blacks didn't create the welfare structure that has systematically destroyed black culture; whites did. Guilt-ridden overreaction is the realm of whites, not blacks, and that's what still powers our racial discourse and PC language today. This is why whites are scared literally shitless of being seen as even mildly racist, or of making a boo-boo comment that might lead the easily-led to believe -- under the ever-present guiding hand of the MSM -- that they're racist at heart. This is why ONLY blacks get an absolutely free pass when it comes to racism, a rather bizarre principle that is being put into force by Eric Holder's Department of Justice. See the nice men at the polling place? (I especially like the fellow with the billy club.)A plainer, clearer case of voter intimidation has never been presented to the Federal Elections Commission or the Department of Justice, yet the case was dismissed -- after it had been won, and was in the sentencing phase -- by Dear Leader's DoJ. No other case of any sort has been so dismissed. AG Holder has referred to "my people" when talking about his legal philosophy, and clearly "his people" were protected in this case. Former DoJ attorneys have testified that, simply stated, the DoJ under Holder and Dear Leader will not prosecute a black person in a voter rights case, period.It's not hard to figure out who's the racist in this story. (I wish it were a story.) But this sort of shit passes and happens precisely because white America has not forgiven itself for slavery, and because there are plenty of folks still crawling around on Earth who make their living performing CPR on slavery.
