Being a creepy albino, Chris must be Virulent Racist Numero Uno

Being a creepy albino, Chris Matthews must be Virulent Racist Numero Uno.

CHIPIN time! Who wants to throw in a dollar to help fund a batch of crisp white sheets over to Chris Matthew's place, along with scissors, thread, a needle, and instructions on how to make a KKK outfit?

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

Chris Matthews is right.

In this country only white people are racist. When some black person says that "white people are this or that" it is not racist, but if a white person calls disgusting, crude, filthy mouthed black "individual" what he is then the white guy is racist. Go figure.

You may not agree with the well known belief that only white people are racist and rightfully so but the fact is that in this country and for political purposes, ONLY WHITE PEOPLE ARE RACIST. Damn white people, if they would just learn to be more black then the world would be a better place.

Frown.

Much like

The LA Times stating White Christians Are Terrorists.

Google who owns the media.

Luke 3:38

Here is the actual definition of racism

prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.

Funny. It seems Chris Matthews can't be racist against whites according to the above definition. I guess he is just prejudiced (like all media).

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

And race "baiting"...

continues to be a well worn tactic of the ptb in their efforts to keep we, the people divided.

crissy mathews is a useful and well paid idiot.

Turn him off.

Chris Matthews is an idiot.

Chris Matthews is an idiot. Racism is simply a person hating people of some race simply for being of that race. There are certainly some blacks who are racist, such as the New Black Panthers. Of course the left tries to define "racist" as something only a white person can be. Whenever I hear that, I know that leftist is himself a white hating racist, even if he's white.

Matthews is an idiot. Why does anyone listen to him?

Same with O'Reilly and Sean Hannity.

In my country there are

In my country there are several laws which scheduled castes and tribes can avail. Its called the prevention of atrocities act. If someone assaults them or abuses them, they can go to a court and invoke these laws to get the offender punished. Needless to say the penalties under this act are harsher than what a higher caste Brahmin or kshatriya could get if the offense was committed on them.

This is for historical and cultural reasons as the lower castes were oppressed for millenia by the upper castes and a certain kind of racism still exists within the country and it would be pointless for me to deny it.

So caste 'hate' crimes can only be committed by higher castes on lower castes, not higher caste on higher caste or lower caste on lower caste, or lower caste on higher caste. So put in this context I don't think what Chris Matthews says is so mystifying to be honest..

Chris Matthews knows exactly

Chris Matthews knows exactly what he's doing. He's the Lib version of Karl Rove.

Rather than second guessing

Rather than second guessing his motivation behind the statement which I cannot know without reading his mind, I'd like to focus on the validity of his words which may be controversial but holds some merit as I stated above.

No one is second guessing anything.

We, the people KNOW what he is doing, without question.

His words HAVE no validity. They are an impossibility. Are whites racist? Some whites, yes. Are blacks racist? Some blacks, yes.

Are blacks in Africa, or any other predominately black country racist? Some blacks, yes. Are whites in THOSE countries racist? Well, are they?

Comparing the experiment of Liberty in America, a place where, at one time, any thing was posssible to any person to a country such as yours, India, I suppose, a country where slum dogs could NEVER over achieve is an absolute diametric opposition. It can't compare.

You don't understand this country and it shows in your deduction of how our values, within the context of Freedom, Liberty, and opportunity work, and once worked.

This country was wiping out racism in the 1970's until the cia swooped in. Could we ever completely wipe it out? No. There will always be racists of every color but we, as a people were getting there. We overcame the assassinations of our leaders in the 1960's who sought to bring the people together against the military industrial elitists only to be snared in the drug running cia and the emerging police state that pits man against woman, white against black, young against old, neighbor against neighbor, gang against gang, anything to divide the people.

I believe you would do better to apply ONLY America to America. It doesn't mix well with Indian culture in the grand context of life, liberty, and the "caste" system where VERY FEW escape their upbringing.

Great, so you just 'know'. Awesome.

Before you criticize a whole population maybe you can look at former president APJ Abdul Kalam and see where he came from. Affirmative action disadvantages me directly, but I'm willing to tolerate that so more people can get a chance to prosper.

Racism is a scientific phenomenon, but we do better when we overcome our primitive natures. The racism, he refers to is a cultural phenomenon due to which whites considered themselves superior to the negroid race they forced to be their slaves. If that is lost on you then I would suggest its time for you to step out of your cave.

History is lost to some, but

History is lost to some, but not forgotten by all. The first slaves in America were, in fact, white. Those academics who insist that slavery is an exclusively Black racial condition forget or deliberately omit the fact that the word slave originally was a reference to Whites of East European origin - "Slavs." The terms, white trash, rednecks, cracker, and hillbillies were coined to describe white slaves.

The history of white slavery is just as shameful as black slavery. Slavery was not racist, it was classist.

"Negro slavery was efficiently established in colonial America because Black slaves were governed, organized and controlled by the structures and organization that were first used to enslave and control Whites. Black slaves were 'late comers fitted into a system already developed.'" (Michael Hoffman, They Were White and They Were Slaves and Ulrich B. Phillips, Life and Labor in the Old South, pp. 25, 26)

That's interesting. Can you

That's interesting. Can you give me an approximate ratio of white slaves throughout American history to black slaves?

There were 4 white slaves for every black 1 in the American colonies - "White Cargo: The Forgotten History of Britain's White Slaves in America" by Don Jordan and Michael Walsh; "Eighteenth-Century White Slaves: Fugitive Notices; Volume I, Pennsylvania, 1729-1760 (Documentary Reference Collections)" by Daniel Meaders

Not at a particular point of time. In total.

Also can you link an online source as I don't have this book available.

"Willing to tolerate so more

"Willing to tolerate so more people can get a chance to prosper," really? That sounds like socialism to me. On a side note when you say things like "step out of your cave" just because you don't agree with someone is attacking them personally and it's silly.

Yeah, bring out your

Yeah, bring out your bogeyman. You may hate collectivism, but it has helped advance us to the point that we can communicate though we're halfway round the world.

Yes, rather than calling him an idiot or moron I made a joke about his ignorance being similar to that of a man who has been living in a cave. Why? Because I felt insulted by his remarks about my country, which were as uninformed as the rest of his drivel.

You are implying that the

You are implying that the internet is a result of collectivism and that could not be further from the truth. The internet is a direct result of the free market and individualism in action, there is nothing collectivist about it. Collectivism only harms, never helps, the same as affirmative action which can only breed resentment and exacerbate the problem. You say you are willing to put up with affirmative action because it helps some people? What about the rights of those you trample by doing so? Instead of inflicting racism on one group you chose to instead inflict it on another? If the law(and punishment) isnt the same for both groups, it is a collectivist law that violates the rights of one group in favor of the other, I dont care how well intentioned it is. If you dont understand that you dont understand the whole concept of liberty.

The internet is a result of

The internet is a result of military research done by a group of people who decided to come to together based on their geographical location.

I did resent affirmative action, but a whole population that is forever doomed to be poor does not do anyone good.

Let me ask you a question. How important is liberty to you? Do you rank it above family?comfort?safety? What exactly are you being stopped from doing right now that you are whining about liberty?

Pop 'n' Fresh, The Pilsbury Doughboy

and Ed Shultz say things that seem racist to me. It's the Liberal racism. Liberal racism is when they think they are better than blacks, but want to see black people get ahead and have equal opportunities, but they think they should tell them what they should want and know the best ways for them to succeed. It's called Pity Racism. They want to help them because they THINK they are superior to Blacks and feel guilty about it.

What??

Only the Gringos?

The premise is complete BS

sorry I down-voted, but why should we give propagandist Matthews any air time.

Is there more to this

It seems to cut out rather fast. That guy is a big a hole but seems like it was edited literally right after his comment. And even if he didn't say anything else I don't take his statement to believe that he only believes whites are racists. More that he is a lazy biased journalist.

Racists

The Democrats dream of a race war. They won't be happy till they get one.
