I personally feel that gophers are hard working animals. But some animals are lazy and looking for handouts, like dogs and cats. I personally feel that parakeets are hard working birds. I don't have that overall feeling towards some other birds, which I will not mention because you will think I'm a twit, or a bigot, or gigantic doofus, for "duffus".

Yes, um, that's what I think, when I'm thinking real hard, or hardly thinking, or something like that, ya' know what I mean.

Like, I'm really not prejudiced or anything, man.

Some groups of immigrants are more known for being lazy or looking for handouts than others. I personally feel that many Hispanics are hard-working people. I don't have that overall feeling towards some other races, which I will not mention. I don't think that feeling towards certain groups are always taught, but often observed.

In the end, if someone wants to live and stay in the US, they need to pursue citizenship, learn the language and assimilate, while still holding their culture and traditions as important. Our ancestors did it.

Ring2003: I think our uppity President is doing a good job considering, you know... Not that there is anything wrong with his being Black and everything, but still... I mean, like, he's doing as good a job as can be expected since he...uh...hmmmm.

"He just doesn't love our country enough", to quote several brilliant posters on this fine site.

New Ulm, Alabama.

Has a nice ring to it.

Yes, MIT, whites are the only bigots. The bad, bad press picks on the nice, nice whites all the time. Probably because everyone in the press is a dang liberal. In fact, the whole world is against whites, and the whole world is especially against YOU.

If I were you I'd only watch Fox TV and go out only at night, fully armed.

Young people are taught. They are not born with bigotry ingrained. Look to the parents. Also look to society that tolerates this on many levels. Certain comments about our president are a prime example.
