3. Is the last option supposed to be ironic?
Enforcing the stereotype that the area heavily populated by african americans will resort to physical violence?

10. Oh right, you mean drop Bill Bennet off for tea and cakes then...
Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 08:51 AM by SemiCharmedQuark
at...night...

Or perhaps a friendly chat?

at...night...

Even if physical violence is not what you meant, I guarantee that many of the people choosing that option are thinking that.

On Edit: If this were a comment against white people, you wouldn't say

"Drop him off at the hamptons...at night"

I don't try to read people's minds, and don't expect them to read mine.

If this offends you, I'm sorry. I'm pissed off, and this is an emotional issue.

19. I'll agree with you on that one Darth
For anyone concerned about the issue with Bill Bennett's comments, I would think the last choice about Harlem would be the pot calling the kettle black.

Basically in the same vein of what Bennett said.

35. Probably not. But a better choice here would have been to put him
at an NAACP meeting or something. The equating of Harlem with a "punishment" as this choice suggests seems not quite right given the topic.

36. Ok, let's see an NAACP meeting..

Because you think he would be educated there?

I really think there are a lot of white supremacists in our government now.



Thinking about when the Allies reached the death camps in German, Poland, etc. There are stories about them letting the prisoners have at it with some of the guards, and yes there was violence. When people are beat down and abused it's natural to want "revenge," or justice. I don't think it has anything to do with the color of anyone's skin. AND I think we are all quite suseptible to making assumptions when the discussion of race comes up.

Sorry. The Harlem image just seems to perpetuate the "black crime" myth that we are already so upset about with Bennett's comments.

Did you see "Mississippi Burning?" WHen Gene Hackman dropped off one of those racist lawmen in the middle of the poor black community? He was scared and had to face the very people he'd offended.

lead based paint off the walls in old buildings and eating it. Prolly been the same ones chowing down asbestos, making trouble for Johns-Manville and Dow Chem. See -- they just can't wait to get big enough to star on a 'Cops' episode.

45. Strike Two for KSKY 660AM in Dallas...
They carry Bill Bennett's radio program.

Back in the early to mid 90's, however, they also carried the National Alliance program American Dissident Voices. These guys are white supremacists based in West Virginia, and some of their members got involved in a terrorist network that robbed armored cars, assassinated talk radio host Alan Berg, and were setting up a guerilla training center for some future race war.

50. Fortunately, "The Order" is now history
But it's still got plenty of sympathizers out there, and a few copycats.

Robert Mathews, the guy who founded The Order, is revered as a folk hero by white supremacists. A completely objective look at this guy reveals an earnest if somewhat naive man who selflessly gave his time and money to those who needed a leg up. His favorite meal was apple pie washed down with milk. He drove a Chevrolet. He loved Scottish folk music. His dream was to settle his family on his own farm in rural Washington. On the outside, Mathews looked like an all-American boy.

But Mathews also wanted to rid America of Jews and non-white ethnicities. His followers included Klansmen, neo-Nazis, counterfeiters, survivalists, military veterans, and ex-cons. His favorite books were Which Way Western Man?, written by a disillusioned integrationist and labor activist who embraced the white supremacist message, and The Turner Diaries, a novel of a fictional race war that some considered to be a secret blueprint for assassination and bomb-making. His dreamworld was held together with a network of fragile truces, collective paranoia, and outright lies.

I recommend reading The Silent Brotherhood if you can find it at your local bookstore; it's a great synopsis of the history of The Order and a look at white racialists in America during the 80's. Disturbing at times, but well worth the read.
