OK, I suppose you expect me to try to pull out a sentence in that "essay"
which is either false or unduly disparaging of blacks. Well I grant you the
post didn't contain anything on the order of: "All niggers are shiftless,
lazy, criminals who have made no worthwhile contribution to society" or "The
only good nigger is a dead nigger."

But, how about this:

>People in, say, Switzerland can walk their streets after dark. We can't.
>What have we got that they don't, that might cause fear?
>Elvis impersonators, Johnny. Yep. Switzerland doesn't have any Elvis
>impersonators. Check for yourself.

The clear implication (granted while made with tongue in cheek) is that the
Swiss are safe after dark because, unlike we woeful Americans, they don't
have blacks to deal with. The unspoken suggestion is that if we were to
ship all the blacks back to Africa the good white folks of this great
country could take all the locks off their doors and live in peace and

With that, please accept my exit from this thread. It no longer has
anything of value to offer.
