Ku-klux-klan growing

Ku-klux-klan is apparently planning on capitalising on the rising tide xenophobia and ethnic/religious intolerance in US to grow membership and influence.

Does that include free sheets? Backstage passes to Trump rallies?

Are you kidding? Times are tough, we have to supply our own sheets, sadly I went one year with Flannel.

Curious, does anyone else live in a city/ town with sizable African populations? As in immigrated here from Africa in the last 20 years or so? We do, and there is a power struggle down here it seems, between those Africans who immigrated here, and african- americans.. My Mother n law goes to an African church and we go there with her on special occasions and such.. I will say They have their priorities straight. Education (the pastor is working on his doctorate and his mother who came here (legally) 5 years ago is set to receive her masters degree in a year at the age of 70 i think?) the whole community pulls together like many other African American communities However they admonish the kids for bad behavior, work as hard as necessary to move ahead, not just survive..etc and are generally some of the absolute nicest people I have met..There is a struggle however because we have minorities down here who claim they get pulled over disproportionately , cant find work, try to justify bad behavior etc and these Africans wont jump on the band wagon with them and it creates tension..Just curious if its like that anywhere else?

As a general rule you have to pass a pretty high standard to be accepted for an immigration visa to come to Canada to live and I would expect the same in the US. Way, way more people apply than ever get accepted. As such most immigrants are the cream of the crop of their country and often outperform the many native born people when they get here.

I was a supervisor for a company in Texas. We had a handful of workers from Africa. Several in my department. The one thing they all had in common was that they could not stand African-Americans. They looked down on them and said they were lazy,un-trustworthy and made it hard on them because people would group them all together. My guys were honest hard working and always willing to do extra work or learn something new to further themselves in their careers.

Interesting take, never thought of it that way.

My mother in law got scammed by a Nigerian. I once worked with an African woman and bought some wooden elephants and a necklace from her. Her name was Mmboney.
I was thinking about getting the wife a bone to put thru her nose so I could pull her along if she got to window shopping. I think it would have been too hard to fit in her helmet though, so I went with just the necklace.
I like fried chicken.

Having lots of money to invest when you get here helps with the immigration process too.

I really can't decide if Saddlebags post is funny or racist or both???
Not that I label most white people with our new tag that is used so widely by black people!
I do think the KKK should rename itself if it wants to carry on doing whatever it's supposed to be doing, because they may as well call themselves the Gestapo or the SS for all the good that name is doing for their organisation!

The topic of good & bad black people can go on forever without reaching a conclusion, but I really don't see why the media & the blacks need to separate themselves from mainstream USA by calling themselves African-American, because do all the European immigrants who built this country call themselves Irish-American or Italian-American or European-American?????

Turd polishing is a pastime l'm not familiar with but do they not have as much right to protest & put forward their beliefs as much as placard holding "I hate white cops" minority sections of the population?

I have zero issue with anyone protesting anything, Until that time at which it becomes violent / destructive to innocents. If you are white and want to protest against black, then by all means do it, just dont kill someone to do it.. If your black and hate white cops, then by all means, protest it, hold signs, make your voice heard, just dont shoot an innocent cop to do it, etc.
It seems that we no longer can have civil discussions about differences of opinions. Name calling abounds, for example if you don't like our president you are a racist, if you support gun control, you are a traitor, etc..simply having an argument based on the merits of the argument seems out the window and someone usually ends up getting hurt now days.. Sad.

Interesting how people keep throwing the "xenophobia" bomb out there. Maybe Canadian's would feel different if they had a border with Mexico instead of us. Maybe the US should deport the illegal Mexicans to Canada instead of sending them back where they came from. I'd rather send them to Afganistan, but Canada would do fine for me..
As for ethnic/religious intolerance, yes your right it is a shame how everything is blamed on the white Christians anymore when we all know who the real ethnic/religious problem people are....

I never said anything about rights... I didn't even hint at anything that could be interpreted as having to do with rights...

The KKK isn't someone's opinion, its a right wing extremist group that pushes for segregation, removal of rights or violence against other groups of people based on race.

I don't care if its pro/anti black/white/muslim/christian. In my opinion, if you're group is advocating segregation or encouraging violence against other people based on race or religion your group is ****. That applies to jihadist Muslims as much as neo-nazi Christians.

No matter how much you polish that turd, its still ****...

Before anyone jumps on me, I'm not saying there aren't cultural problems, but I sure as hell get a kick out of listening to white people describe the ills of black american culture when they could be describing my distantly related white trailer trash family.

Disdain for education, the never ending stream of drug and alcohol problems, the inability to find or keep (if they do find) jobs, hatred of cops and the government in general, violence and trying to form white gangs or groups, lack of reliability or trustworthiness. They're all white, they're all from English backgrounds, but **** if they don't meet nearly every stereotype I see people associate with Black people in the US.

You are saying l'm sympathizing with the KKK?
Then you also blame the English for all the problems???


I'm thinking someone needs to have a quiet word in your ear sonny!
