Re: Tseneau - "And here I though that Don Black was convicted for being a violent racist raising private armies to overthrow governments. Exactly how many acts of terrorism are the StormFront crew supposed to get a free pass on by calling it 'freedom of speech'?"....I don't know how many acts of "terrorism" it will take. Maybe you should ask Bush; he seems to have a few overthrown governments under his belt. Better yet, why not ask the new President. He seems to know a thing or two about being around convicted felons and terrorists that actually blew things up, like the Pentagon. Hell, maybe if Don Black smoked some crack with a hooker he too could be the mayor of a major American city. Provided that city was mostly black, of course.
I haven't been west of the TN river in about 2 years. Most (White)people living in that city hate it. I almost never came across anyone that moved to Memphis from some other city and didn't hate it there a year or two later. The rare exceptions are usually the midtown faux intellectuals that moved there from the burbs thinking they're "cultured" by being in midtown(or even downtown now). Cultured in midtown is kind of like being the guy that can spell elephant in a retarded kids Spelling Bee - it might impress they crowd there, they may clap, but the real world laughs inside and just feels sorry for you......... Go do a Google search for 'Memphis sucks' or 'I hate Memphis'. Normal, non self-absorbed human beings hate Memphis now, and for a good reason.
sbanbury..... North Memphis? Nobody wants to go anywhere near Frayser. You should be ashamed of yourself trying to fool people into going anywhere near that place. I'm 200 miles away now and I still make fun of Frayser. This "whitey" used to live near Ketchum and Airways. So your neighborhood doesn't really scare me. You want to see scared? Ask one of your fellow North Memphians(especially the Frayserites) to go to the library.
Veni, Vidi, Vici!
No, Packrat. You're not necessarily a self-hating socially liberal white guy. You just have low expectations. Nothing to be ashamed of really. You live in "Mempho" and probably have an easier time convincing people how smart you are in that city. You have to admit, it's pretty easy to be the 'smart one' in Memphis. Unfettered truth is like kryptonite to you people. So, self-hating? Nah, not really. It's just that you haven't grown up yet and probably still believe catch phrases like "world peace" actually mean something. Go smoke a bowl and tell me what world peace means to you.
Here are a couple of quotes......"Earlier in my college career, there was no doubt in my mind that as a member of the Black community I was somehow obligated to this community and would utilize all of my present and future resources to benefit this community first and foremost."..."To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists."
..........Why is it OK for the possible future President and first lady of the United States to make comments like this, but when David Duke makes somewhat similar statements, it's somehow hateful and racist? Ah yes, the average American liberal mind at work --- Amazingly painful to watch isn't it? Wait, who am I kidding? There's not much difference between liberal and conservative nowadays. You're screwed either way. The only real differnce being that one just doesn't mind if they have to use a little lube.
Actually, it is. I was named after my great grandfather, Forrest Humpumus Maximus. He was a famous man-whore back in the old country where names are derived from your profession. He just never changed his name when he arrived here.
