Re: ignorance at it's best

I can't believe no one has pointed out the hilarious irony of the thread title.

"It's" is a contraction (e.g. it is, it has).

"Its" is a possessive pronoun.

It is true though, this is ignorance at its (ironic) best.

So true redsk1. I think we can also say there are going to be ignorant people no matter what country there involved with. Living in southern Germany I was a little surprised how much the Turkish immigrants were reviled. Crime: everybody blamed the Turks. Weak economy: the Turks were driving down wages/incomes. Your wife cheating: she's f*ck!ng a Turk. (Ok the last one I didn't really hear from any Germans)

Seriously, bigotry and racism is a terrible but common piece of human nature. Really big when special people can help bridge the gap i.e. Ghandi and MLK Jr. Maybe Obama could be another but it's hard to say.

Seems like there's no love between the Black Community in Alaska and Palin. Not a big deal really though, everyone is entitled to do as they pleases.

Its Alaska, how many black people are really out there anyway? It'd be like me going to Montana and complaining about not catching a break.

Discrimination is wrong no matter what the circumstance but the black population out there is something like 2% or 3%... Affirmative Action really isn't gonna float too well there..

Re: ignorance at it's best

Thought I'd share a more common view of what the rural community that I'm more familiar with thinks regarding this presidential election. If you have time check more of the links on guardian.co.uk as Gary Younge, british journalist, works his way around Roanoke during the election season. Some stuff is poignant, others....not so much.

There aren't many black people there that's for sure...and no one is talking about affirmative action. I guess what I'm saying is if you don't offer an olive branch don't expect a hug.

In the article it was mentioning how some people were complaining about not getting hired because they are black. I was referring to that. But I get what you're saying.

I think the overall message is her cabinet lacks diversity, she wouldn't attend or send someone to Juneteenth celebration, and they couldn't partake in all the oil pipeline dealings. Are these legitimate issues? At ~4% of the population perhaps not but I wouldn't expect the black vote in Alaska if I were a Republican.

Most Republicans probably don't expect the black vote period. Especially not in this election.

Re: ignorance at it's best

Funny all these people are going out of their way to go to these small little towns to find these people to interview. Why are they not going into the inner cities to get their views?

I can't speak for "all these people" but the guy at Guardian gives his reasons for choosing Roanoke here.

Having grown up in the inner city, I'll tell you, many people there don't care enough about politics to even warrant an interview. And can you blame them?

Granted, not caring is a type of ignorance in itself, but being terribly misinformed is far more dangerous than not giving a damn in the first place.

Re: ignorance at it's best

I was wondering last night where has Jessie Jackson and the Ail Shaprtons of world gone durn this election? Its like they have fallen off the face of the earth. I'm just surprised they have not been on MSNBC or one of these Sunday morning shows.
