Several racists don't assume they're racist. Michael Shure, Steve Oh, and also Jimmy Dore, hosts of The Young Turks, talk about. Inform us just what you think in the comment section listed below.

" An advocate of Confederate statues informed press reporters on Thursday that it was unreasonable to repaint the monuments as racist– then almost right away went on a racist rant about Martin Luther King.

Spectrum News Charlotte press reporter Yoojin Cho posted a video clip meeting of Russell Walker, a local of York, South Carolina, that submitted a lawsuit demanding that Confederate flags be gone back to his community's primary court house.

In making his case for the flags to stay, Walker firmly insisted that there was absolutely nothing racist in any way about Confederacy signs, before he entirely weakened his situation by making racist statements.

" I do not think it's a sign of racism, I don't think it's an icon of slavery," claimed Walker. "Hey, I go down the road, I see Martin Luther Coon … uh, I shouldn't have stated that … Martin Luther King. I imply, ought to I rip the signs down or urge they take Martin Luther King Road down or the rest of that stuff."" *.

    White people live in an alternate reality. They love law and order, until they have to live by it. They love free speech, until a black man uses it. They love veterans, but only the white ones.

      so we are responsible for others, even though we have no control over their actions? i lean a bit to the left but thats way out there in granola-town… so now we are our brothers keepers? is this 1984?

    Are you defending that bigoted homophobe Martin Luther King TYT?
    See the problem yet with defining historical figures by a single narrow criteria?

    • Posted by SupaDr00g, at Reply

      Yeah because that’s what these silly twats are whining about isn’t it?

    • Posted by clouddavis, at Reply

      Extremely shitty and uneducated straw man argument. MLK’s mentor was openly gay and even though it conflicted with his religion ( people forget that back then Christianity and its teachings was pretty much law of the land). Hell, he still respected him. Now then, did the confederate soldiers ever respect the slaves?…

    • Posted by SupaDr00g, at Reply

      Yeah of course i’m il educated, i mean there is that annoying fact that homosexuality was illegal in every US state up until 1962 when Illinois decriminalized it in their state and it took another 41 years for it to be legalized federally so nobody was going around openly declaring they were gay in the 50’s and 60’s not unless they were so masochistic they wanted to be bashed or put in jail.
      The idea that you think a black Baptist preacher in 50’s and 60’s was pro homosexuality is laughable, you would be hard pushed to find one now let alone back then.
      This is just emblematic of the left these days, you live in a fantasy world.
      But fine how about we tear up the plans for Obama’s Presidential Center that is going to be built in Chicago because he opposed gay marriage?
      Do you see what i mean yet, are you even going to address the actual point being made?
      That a person isn’t defined by a single position they held at one specific time, especially a position they didn’t espouse but one you have assigned to them.
      There were many soldiers who fought in the South for many reasons but you and the rest of your myopic friends have decided that every one of them to a man fought because he wanted to keep black people as slaves.

      @RandomOrForgotten the democratic party shifted its stance a long time ago…clearly context and logic is not your strong suit (I’d guess you’re a “moderate republican” or a “centrist libertarian”) but hey, you might just learn something.

    • Posted by RandomOrForgotten, at Reply

      +Void The party switch has been disproven. I’ve even verified this myself. Only one of the twenty some odd representatives that were democrat switched to republican after slavery ended.

    Despite him being high key racist I kinda agree with the fact that if you wanna take down all of these racist statues you should also wanna take down Martin Luther King statues. He was *extremely* homophobic. Just ask Bayard Rustin who MLK fired because of his sexuality.

      yep especially those who try to rewrite the fact that those statues were put up in the civil rights and jim crow era as a huge middle finger, and try to change the reality of slavery and make it sound like they were just servants provided homes and food,

      or when those same people try to change the literal facts about the many interventions and offensive/unnecessary wars we’ve gone into and why, let alone already tried economics and policy ideas that have been already done or thought of by their own way before.

      there’s more but ranting against taking down net neutrality and massive science denial until a company pays them to believe a pre-made opinion on an environmental or health related matter is often a way to start a fight.

    Im from Scotland so maybe I just don’t understand why there are some nutjob racists who support these guys statues staying up. Like you guys said the generals they all represent lost so why are their statues removals being protested?! Why is there so much hate other than the obvious reason of racism?

    • Posted by Sarah Whyte, at Reply

      kleevorp os1 Wallace was a traitor against the king of England. At the time the countries were fighting for Scotland’s independence, Scotland never having been under English law and not willing to lay down to it. Wallace galvanized a sparse group of people’s and brought them together to fight as one, the clans had been bickering between themselves for generations, they had never fought a cohesive army before. That’s why England had taken so much of northern England so easily. Wallace made the English stop for a minute and reconsider their almighty governance. He is celebrated as a hero to the underling, the working class man with no shot left to lose, facing an impossible foe.

      The statue at Edinburgh castle and the few round the country to him and others in Scottish history who fought in battle or signed something etc are not worshipped or protested as in your culture. Wallace is often dressed up, especially during the Edinburgh Festival or when university starts its new term in the autumn.

    • Posted by Jon Ericson, at Reply

      Yeah, but I’d think that fighting back against injustice > seceding/starting a civil war over slavery.

    • Posted by Sarah Whyte, at Reply

      Lourenco Almada learn about the battle between Scotland and England, what happened and why etc and get back to me…

      By the way, I wouldn’t put it past Scots of the time in question (the late 12th and early 13th century fyi) we’re talking game of thrones days. I wouldn’t put it past them to be sexist and own slaves but I doubt if they were racist purely because the only people who were capable of travelling any distance were the Vikings from times past and they looked very similar (also, few people met a Viking and got away from them again to tell their take to a non-Viking)

      ….So try checking history before getting on the old high horse. This was a genuine question, I’m not taking a swing at your country.

      They have lived all their lifes in that way, they cannot understand the world in a different way, so they dont consider themselves as “racist”, because they dont realize their are being racist; they just cannot see themselves like that because they see it as normal, they have lived all their lifes in that way and they understand it as normal and as the norm. For them is the right way, the only way. You must realize they are like a horse with an obstructed view: they have their logic so messed up, that they just can see and, in consecuence understand the world in an specific way. Is their perception of reality.

    He clearly said it on purpose. Like most bigots in America, he’ll make bigoted comments and in the same breath say that he’s not a bigot. And that is how the Republican Party works, they don’t believe half of what they claim; they want to have their cake and eat it too.
