Bill is a funny comedian and I love his show, I find it to be hilarious most times even when they discuss topics I don't agree with.
For someone to state that a group of people is more racist is generally a racist/prejudiced statement in itself. Also, the whole idea of creating diversity for the sake of diversity is racist, AHEM....affirmitive action. Now I don't think Bill is racist, far from it but he is on HBO and he doesn't really have to be that accountable to what really goes on, his show is news-comedy or should I say comedy-news.
Oh yeah? What about La Raza?
i agree with juliusbragg down at the bottom.
everyone has prejudices - to believe that there is someone in the world that exists today that doesnt is foolish nonsense. Even if you think you hold no prejudices, your subconsicous wouldnt agree with you. For most people these extend into how we perceive other people naturally - perhaps a 'racist' is more vocal about their beliefs than those taught it is socially unaccepted to speak of it and fear the consequences of exhibiting their feelings.
I wouldnt say racism is right or good, but it is definitely for anyone ive ever met, unavoidable, and deeply seeded. to think that one political spectrum is less 'racist' in a true sense than the other is just laughable heresay/speculation.
further-Is it possible that what people call "racism" was essentially created or at least promoted/fed for a purpose.
If you took three people(one each light/medium/dark skin tone) that had lived their lives in isolation from contact w/ other humans and had no knowledge of history nor exposure to mass communication the they all were placed on the same island together what would happen?
Do you think they would get along as well as most humans get along or would skin tone clearly affect their how they interact w/ one another?
Does constantly interjecting and harping on the concept of "race" create "racism". What constitutes a "race" anyway?
Related-I wonder what Mahers neighborhood is like, diversity wise?

slice and dice/divide and conquer Megaphone(rather relatively miniphone). Thanks PR, you are doing great service keeping humans pitted against each other based on superficial and hyped differences/labels.
Glad the destructive echo chamber has reached our little oasis. It was seeming for a while that we were making some small progress toward eliminating that manipulation and control tool from the PTB bag o tricks.
Keepin it collectivist, Keepin it real-

[just a quick youtube search of 'racist']
Democrats didn't want blacks to be free, Democrats supported Jim Crow laws, Democrats founded the Ku Klux Klan, Democrats voted against the Civil Rights Act, Democrats locked the Japanese up in concentration camps during WWII, Democrats didn't offer to take Jewish refugees from Germany when Hitler wanted them out (thanks, FDR, for the shoa), Democrats dropped the atomic bomb on Japan, twice and tried to justify it with evil dehumanizing propaganda, and until Obama came along, the Democrats were controlled by rich white people.
Cut the shit, Maher!
I could write a list a mile long of Democrat crimes against humanity that Republicans couldn't even hope to rival in their dreams!
I am out of touch with most Americans precisely because I am not out of touch with reality.
I was in hotel and caught part of Bill Maher with Chris Rock. It was a schmooze fest and Maher kept pushing racial crap. He can be funny, but he is way to far left for me. Plus him distancing himself after having Paul on his show and saying 'He is my new hero.'
'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul
Maher cave and shrivel down every time George Will spoke. Even though they spent the whole program talking down George Will.
Yeah Maher is tough, until you stand in front on him. He aint so tough when he doesn't have security throwing out people who disagree with him.
What a coward! He's been neutered since they pulled his last show off ABC. He's been nothing but a corporate lackey since. Pure SCUM!
Racists are more likely to be politicians, or their stooges. Racism is about creating hatred, and using it to control people.
Here are a few examples: Hitler and the Jews, Saddam and the "Persians" (Iranians), US Liberals and "old,white men", NeoCons and Arabs-Muslims.
The hatred is not always based on "race". Some groups like the Department of Homeland Terrorism use criteria like returning veterans from Iraq, Ron Paul supporters, or even Americans who are pro-life or pro-Second Amendment.
Professional hate groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center exist to smear patriotic Americans and groups and associate them with real racist and anti-Semitic groups. Their hate propaganda is used to validate power grabs by criminal politicians.
Politicians have used hatred for centuries to control people. Our's are no different.
I think this is a true statement if he is referring to 'general racism' against blacks...call me crazy...however, people that are racists against whites are more likely to be democrats.
I cant stand when true statements are made to be controversial.
Other factual, yet somehow controversial statements:
If you are poor, you are probably a democrat.
If you are a christian, you are more likely to be a republican.
If you're a republican, you are more likely to be white.
I say we stop dividing ourselves between white and black, and democrat and republican, and join on the common ground of freedom!
