    Not like that was a difficult outcome to foresee.

    So, if I go by what the numbers and data shows me, am I sterotyping? If so, then strike me down Lord, for I am sterotyping.
    The kind of data I worked with allowed me to say that racism is alive and well in the institutions of banking, law, real estate and the criminal justice system in Greater Cleveland. Nowhere in those previous discussions did I use the term "typical", point fingers, or use the word "them". I offered facts and probabilities based on those facts. You are definitely stereotyping with your conception of a "typical" (read "white") citizen. You offer some pretty sweeping generalizations. That's a prime recipe for stereotyping. I suppose you reinforce these (IMO) misguided views continually/repeatedly by teaching them.

    Am I a typical Amercan? I think so. Yet I measure up (or is it measure down?) in only two of your four categories. I question affimative action. I felt all along that Obama was too inexperienced for the office. BUT, I also felt McCain was much too hypocritical. That why I voted for Ralph Nader who at least spoke for me on a couple of issues of importance to me (like the dangers of large corporations). I wonder how this BP thing would have gone down if Nader was president.

    Sincerely,

    LkwdSteve, typical American citizen.

    I intentionally refused to use the word reverend in the thread title, and not becuase I doubt if that word is "religiously" accurate. No, my decision was based on NOT wanting to appear like one of those right wing talkers that abound on the airwaves. The national guys and the local guys use the word "reverend" in a disrespectful fashion when his name is said. They have said it so much it is expected. I had something else to say.

    One local writer who really hammered Jackson in print was Plain Dealer columnist Phillip Morris. Here is what he wrote in yesterday's Plain Dealer (Metro Section) in part:

    "Ever since he whispered into an open campaign microphone in 2008 that he wanted to lynch then candidate Barack Obama by cutting off his testicles, Jackson has been completely exposed as nothing more than a horrible absecessed mouth. He is light-years past he point where he should simply be seen and not heard*."

    Strong words. I guess Mr. Morris has earned the pejoration "A typical American" (even if he is black).



    *Begging the question why the media prints his words, if not seeking him out.

    "Keep in mind, people have been saying that about him LONG before Lebron james was even on this earth."

    That's nice. I will not take responsibility for what others have said in the past.

    I started this thead about THIS case. Jackson was right or wrong in his assertion. If right, why? If wrong, why?

    If he had talked about lack of black ownership of professional sports franchises he would have been on firmer footing.
    And there the NBA was the first (Bob Johnson and Michael Jordan, Charlotte) even if it took too long to get there.

    In the interest of super-equality, you should edit your own post where you call Jackson a jack___

    lol... I'd be more concerned with the people who openly admit to being racist than some TV personalities that may or may not pretend it doesn't exist. Its like saying you're more worried about people who pretend the holocaust didn't exist than the guys who actually ran the camps.
