needs this conversation.

At the same time, maybe we should do away with the African American Parents Association, since it furthers race division in Toledo. By only defending one segment of the population, this group plays into this so-called racial divide in Toledo.

Organizations to help and support Black people began because of the racism inposed on Blacks by Euro's. Many organizations have been formed with varying success. In this modern age many Euro's want these organizations abandoned so they can completely go back to the Jim Crow way of doing things.

Oh get over yourself. I think everyone on here is about done with your "whites fuck everything up" attitude. Racism goes both ways, and the actions of black organizations further the racial divide more than anything these days!

We do, and the first thing we do is point the finger at the victims. As far as Blacks widening the racial divide, they have to because us Euro's have demonstarted over and over we can't be trusted by anyone who is non-Euro. It appears the truth has a sting to it.

"Toledo really needs this conversation."

You can't have a conversation with people who refuse to listen.

And by 'people who refuse to listen' I'm talking about people like you.

There is no such thing as "White privilege". That's an invention by the Liberals. There's no privilege whatsoever in going to work every day to pay the taxes that just get wasted in supporting Toledo's layabouts with their Section 8, food stamps, SSDI, HEAP and a host of other poverty-enrichment welfare programs.

I'm tired as hell hearing all this stupid shit from the Liberal side, which is so morally abhorrent and devoid of application, that it plays the race card constantly. Liberalism is dying off, and it's not going quietly. That's what this is all about.

People who benefit from White Priviledge don't think anything is wrong. Just like you. You don't think anything is wrong.

Of course we think something's wrong. And we even outlined it: Being taxed to support Toledo's layabouts with their Section 8, food stamps, SSDI, HEAP and a host of other poverty-enrichment welfare programs.

Should I use a larger type font, Zey? Is English your primary language?

I don't think anything's wrong either. Except maybe for a couple semi-literate trolls that need to keep going to Harbour.

They do it for the halibut. Salmon should stop them.

I agree with ZC. Nothing is wrong.

MikeyA

obviously you only know what you have been told. AAPA, we not only defend we also advocate. We advocate for white, black, Hispanic, Asian parents, students and teachers. How could you do away with our organization? The racial divided was here before we organized and it be here until people like you come to terms with the actuality that white privilege is a real phenomenon.

You go get em, Purnhrt! Things will not change until the Euro rascals accept the truth. It's interesting how us Euro's feel that all races are expected to defend this Country, but should not expect equality.

When I hear the word racist one thing comes to mind:

I think WSPD Fred should be in the front row on everyone of these forums.
Forums intend to spark discussion about race in Toledo

I'm surprised the article didn't touch on the racist hate radio station WSPD 1370. A bastion of white privilege from years of segregation in the Toledo area.

About the forum, one comment stands out from Pastor Shepler who stated that, "Toledo is a very white privileged community." I say "Amen" to that!

Keep laying it out for them, Purnhrt.

She's laid out nothing. She made a claim that she can't or won't back up with facts.

Every fact she could present those of us who she claims support white privilege can show where we have attempted to stop it by the people the black community keep electing keep the same devastating policies.

There you go again, MikeyA, blaming the victims. Out of 300,000 residents in Toledo there are between 40,000 and 50,000 Black in Toledo or about 15% of the population. Who are the other 85% voting for?

When that 15% votes at an 89% reliability rate for one party that means just by having a (D) next to the name the candidate takes 13% of the vote. If the rest of the electorate are split 50/50 the Dem wins 56-43. So, for the Euro's to stop the entitlements that are keeping the black population down they must win with over a 13% advantage over every other demographic. Very difficult to do.

This is a fact. It is simple math and ratios. This is how one "lays it out" by displaying a series of facts, not just making a random unsupported claim.

MikeyA

Sounds like us Euro's need to got out and vote

Turnout doesn't matter if the electorate doesn't have a 13% advantage.

MikeyA

Zey, can't you get even the most basic facts straight?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toledo,_Ohio#2010_census

"As of the census of 2010, there were 287,208 people [...] residing in the city. [...] The racial makeup of the city was 64.8% White, 27.2% African American, 0.4% Native American, 1.1% Asian, 2.6% from other races, and 3.9% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 7.4% of the population."

In otherwords we have 64.8% of the voting power. Why don't we vote?

synapses...and, none of the other local black politicians either ?!
I see that they have done less than nothing for Toledo, kind of like the white pols ?!

Sad, that you inbred racists play the race card as easily as I play stud poker...

Of course you would say that Poonfart. Which is why you're the majority of the problem.

a Federal Jury last month , all because her black boss Rob Carmona-who owned a black employment agency in NY, often went into "4 minute nigger tirades", against her, her dress, and her attitudes?!

Brandi-is also black.

The Federal Jury- stated that when blacks use the word nigger, it is as hostile as if anyone else said it and it is not a word of endearment, at all who ever uses it ?!

Blacks getting money from other blacks who called them nigger ?!

The Litigation Lotto-is brilliant in its pathetic current State !

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

I didn't say it, the white female minister Shepler said it......Can't read or understand? Poonfart,,,,,

What I was saying was I was not surprised you felt the need to repeat it. Your race-bait mind immediately goes to blaming whitey. Get over yourself Twila.... You're a washed up hag. Everyone's done with your shit!

I hearby opt out of any further discussions about race. It's not my problem. I have nothing to gain by it.

G-Man, high tail your noodle spine somewher where you don't have to deal with the truth. Typical Euro demeaner. Hide and it doesn't exist.

What doesn't exist?
