Re: “Those criticizing Michael Phelps must be stoned

I was appalled when i heard about this story. Not that Phelps was seen toking up, but that people were angry with him for it. The fact is people - this kid just won HOW many gold medals for the united states? I think if anyone in America has ever earned the right to light one up - it was this kid.

Re: “Now is not the time for African Americans to take a seat

Racist behavior according to Webster is a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race. I've met many people of many different "races" who felt theirs was superior. Is this not racism? I'm just concerned that organizations like the NAACP are only concerned with one group of people, instead of all struggling people. Just because someone is not a minority does not mean life comes easy. I also believe that to "level the playing field" you should do away with unconstitutional acts such as affirmative action. As you know, gives minority's an upper hand regardless if they are a less qualified candidate. And also to think that sexism, racism and discrimination will one day stop, is nothing more than a pipe dream. There will always be people out there, regardless of being white, black, Latino, whatever - that will discriminate against someone of another race for no reason. It is human nature. This doesn't make it right, but it will happen as history repeats itself. I was also wondering what is considered by you, or these organizations, a discriminatory act? I also believe that to blame ones own short comings upon things as irrelevant as race, is ignorance. For example: I have worked along side many people of different races, and none of them held guns to anyone's head to get the job. I firmly believe that in America, today - if you conduct yourself as a human being you will be treated as one. I'm not saying everyone will like you, but consider the job market: If you cannot appropriately dress yourself, or properly and clearly speak the English language, then do not be surprised when you don't get that return call for the job. If you show up for the interview dressed cleanly and speak firm and clear, I guarantee you will have better results. Of course, maybe not right now with the whole economy exploding ordeal.
I would love to see a day where no one at all cared about race, where we put our differences aside and treated everyone equal, but to nickel and dime everything you can out of the government, and give away as much as you can, will only hold people back as a whole. I'll end with these cliche "words of wisdom": give a man a fish he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish he will eat for a life time.
