    Editorial: When are we going to get over it?

    December 12, 2008

    Andrew M. Manis: When are we going to get over it?

    For much of the last 40 years, ever since America "fixed" its race problem in the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts, we white people have been impatient with African-Americans who continued to blame race for their difficulties. Often we have heard whites ask, "When are African-Americans finally going to get over it?" Now I want to ask "When are we white Americans going to get over our ridiculous obsession with skin color?"

    Re: Sounds like a personal problem to me.

    Seems like he needs to work it out. I don't really care what "color" people are.

    yup, yup

    don't care about skin color, hair color, height, weight, wealth or lack thereof, or even whether they'z a southerner or yankee. As long as they're good people (good heart, good manners, etc.), then they're alright by me (reminds me of a song).

    Re: yup, yup

    All must learn to live as brothers OR we all will perish as FOOLS---- MLK

    Re: Re: yup, yup

    definitely some good words, RN!

    Re: Re: Re: yup, yup

    MLK, JFK, RFK even Malcom X after he came back from mecca, point dreamers of visions that all can live in peace are the ones who end up killed by their own or FOOLS. My satire is that satire on items which I never thought I would live long enough to see, hear, etc etc. I will not touch the fact of words of Geronimo, Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, Tecumseh, Seattle, and many others Indian Leaders who had to see and feel the coming of another culture or way of life that has brought nothing but MISERY, am I wanting to go back to the hunter and gatherer mode of life hell no. My views are of a OLD Man who was raised in a world where certain had to learn to keep their PLACE in the world, yet now all want to be indians even the breeds with papers, IE david yeagley a so called enrolled CON-manche. With all that being said it amazes me yet further to see all the uncle tomahawks or chiefs playing the role and for what EGO and MONEY. Oh well pass the popcorn or at times this is like watching WWE alot of drama but alot of BS
