Part II The fact is you merely hate only to hate. There is nothing new about you or your hatred. Tommy Boy, you don't need a story to hate blacks, you just hate them. You are a slave to your own mind, as well as me, because I know how you think. In other words Oh Tommy Boy, I am your master and I own you, you silly child. Nothing anyone says or writes will change your thinking, but just remember what you say and write, no one believes. You will always be looked upon as a small man and of no worth to society. Just like you view other ye will be viewed. Sorry Oh Tommy Boy, it’s the way it is. Good luck finding yourself.

PS Also this guy name Hitler did some really bad stuff back in the 20's, 30's and 40's. You may have read about it. I think he was white also. Think "Oh Tommy Boy" before you write your thoughts. Some of us out here, other than yourself, know history and current events. Never believe you are the smartest thing going, and yes I await your rebuttal. Oh, rebuttal, here, means your counter reply or argument to my postings. Did that make things easier? Because we all know how no one argues gooder than you. That was sarcasm. Sorry I could not resist.

Damn it, insignificant was the word I was looking for to describe you Oh Tommy Boy. Oh well, next time.

First off being sarcastic and condescending toward Thomas doesn't make you look any better than you think he is. You, Frank, are the only one arguing with yourself now for the better part of 4 posts yet you go on and on. Thomas DID mention in a post to me that he doesn't know how he would feel if white men would have been the perpetrators in the crimes against his family, and that he doesn't trust white people much more than black people. I do think he is mixed up and is obviously channeling his hate and anger at a group of people rather than the actual criminals, but you seem to be hell bent on being just as nasty ot him as you claim him to be to blacks. You also seem to have some misguided anger. Thomas isn't your punching bag, nor is he your 'pet' to kick around verbally. He has his views, albeit skewed, and you don't even seem to have a view other than to knock Thomas around. Why not give it a rest? At the very least, it is getting tedious and at the very most, your posts aren't very well thought out and don't make for much of a point other than the obvious dislike for someone you don't know on the other end of a computer screen.

Wow Frank Moore, if it were not for me assuming you were white I would now put you as a man of color who hates racist and might as well say gays too, not that I am. I'm betting your a man of mixed race maybe between white and black? But anyhow your the one confused and acting like a really mixed up child. Again I said what I said. Im a product of the atmosphere I grew up in and dealt with on a daily bases. Me being this doesn't let me discriminate against any certain race. Deep seeded in every person no matter what race is a form of hate against people of color,gays lesbians and the list goes on. I unlike most choose to voice mine when an occaision comes when there is violence involved against whites by blacks. That is my forte as you would say. Now some folks go off on violence on gays or voilence on blacks by radical rednecks like the James Byrd inncident in Texas, I was there for that. Pretty ugly thing too, and it was a long time before a black man jumped in a truck to sell dope to 2 white boys sleeved in swaticas and other hate symbles, duh??? But anyhow hate and racisim is in each and everyone of us some choose to leave it and some choose to express it. Angel thanks hun for your support and your right on the money about me. Your comments are welcomed and inspiring. In short I grew up in the south, me and my family were victoms of many crimes by black people so really thats why I am what I am towards one certain race. Now albiet I can hate equally when neccassary. LOL
