Quote
Paul Craig Cobb wants to transform Leith, population 24, into a community that mirrors his white supremacist views.

This weekend, white supremacists and others are expected to descend on the town in a show of support for him.

Cobb said he envisions Leith as a place where white nationalist banners will be flown, where white culture would be celebrated, and where minorities would not be welcome.



Just amazing that there are still A-Holes like this.

I was sure hoping we'd be past this sort of nonsense by now....come on! Explain to me why one race would be superior to another because of skin color. And don't give me some biblical quotes because you should know better. Besides,I myself am in a "mixed" marriage and have never been happier. I have known poopheads of many races so you're proving nothing.

     The very mind-set of such individuals puts the lie to thier alleged "supremacy".

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

While not common, it is not unknown for one group or another to take over a town or try to take over a town, so they can espouse their beliefs, whatever they may be. A number of years ago--and I can no longer remember the time, the exact place, nor the exact group, but maybe someone else can--an eastern religious cult took over a small town in Oregon, and there was not much the original inhabitants could do, as they were  badly outnumbered by the newly arrived cultees. The cult only came a cropper when they also tried to take over the county, where the town was located. There being far more county residents, then original townees.

The ones I feel sorry for are the 24 residents of Leith, as they most probably do not share all the views of the people who want to take over their town. Though, if they are outnumbered, I doubt if there is much they can do to stop the takeover of their town. My interest also lies in the story, because I still have family members, from my father's side of the family, who still live in North Dakota. Though, I don't know whether there are any in Leith or near Leith.

If I was there and couldn't make them go away then I'd move. Racism makes me so mad.

Pretty sure any member of a white supremacist is a moron, and all of them must be compensating for something (with guys, /cough small penis/cough)

White person: Is there something wrong with wanting to be around your own race, supporting your own race and actively searching out ways to better your own race, as long as it's not at the expense of harming other races? Just a general question.

I don't mind being around other races, I don't really mind being around homosexuals either, but I'd rather hang out with my own race and not hang out at all with homosexuals. Does this make me a racist bigot, maybe, but I wish no ill will towards any man or women, regardless of their race or sexual orientation. I just feel more comfortable with those like me.

In your hypotheticals, the people involved are only hurting themselves. But we should still mock such attitudes for their superficiality. Life isn't about being comfortable by only hanging out with people who are just like us. A life worth living requires being occasionally uncomfortable by voluntarily exposing ourselves to different ideas and perspectives.

So, yeah, there's definitely "something wrong with wanting to be around your own race, supporting your own race and actively searching out ways to better your own race." It cheapens the definition of what it means to be human.

So you think we should mock people because they want to feel comfortable, or because you don't like the way they feel comfortable about themselves?

You argue from a place of authority where none actually exist, outside of your own bias. That's conjunction, but if it's what makes you comfortable then who am I, or anyone else to judge your happiness by it?

Sorry, I won't bite. I stated my principles but I have no wish to get dragged into a fruitless argument with you.

It wouldn't have been fruitless nor an argument, these question weren't even meant to be literal per se. I never once said how I actually felt about it, but clearly you think you already know.  Cheers No hard feeling, boss.

      There actually is no scientific or Biblical basis for the concept of "race"; there are merely genetic variatiions in one species, Homo sapiens sapiens. Even if there were, the past several centuries of people basically hooking up with whomever tends to make the concept of a "pure race " nonsencical, at best.





     Besides, who can argue with the results?
