NPR Hate speech

In trying to defend the crooked ACORN, they say minorities can't help being criminals; It's just the way those people are
"It's also important to keep in mind that ACORN's workers are coming from the same low-income neighborhoods the organization serves, with all that entails -- poor schools, high crime and the sorts of social problems that have been documented for decades.

So the flaws conservatives are pointing out about ACORN are not so much problems associated with that organization per se but more about the problems of being poor and minority in urban America.

If it's not hate speech it sure is bigotry and "stereotyping".

Jon, you left one word out. True. ACORN's local chapters (cells) are run by local people, who bring their local "habits" with them, not just to acorn, but everywhere they go.

Is that a racist statement? No. A fact can not be racist.

It is bigotry and stereotyping, can we really assume that all poor people from bad neighborhoods support child prostitution? Can we assume that all poor people are looking for ways to cheat the system and helping others commit crimes?

This is not the first time liberals excuse bad behavior from poor and minorities, yet when Rush Limbaugh had was caught with a few Oxy-Contin pills, they cried bloody murder.

Twice as many white people are poor than black yet blacks top the homicide rate at 52pct of all murders even though having only 11pct of the population.

WORD OF THE DAY
ACORN, n.


A rancid nut which took root from sea to shining sea, including the Windy City, where its most memorable assault on liberty is a Dumbo-eared, America hating Marxist Messiah named Barry.

The employees of Acorn knowingly decided to provide help to people who were planning to break the law, it was a choice they made because they could have also chosen to send the law-breakers packing.

These are the people who are MAKING their communities and children into failures. They should never be excused and anyone making excuses for them is only part of the problem.

The head of ACORN of course denies any responsibility. I'm sorry, but if you are the head of an organization, you ARE responsible for what goes on. If things happen on that large of a scale in several cities, it is obvious there is zero oversight.

I agree. Except for the crimes committed by the Bush regime.

I just had an epiphany.

Am I the only one who finds it ironic that the leader of ACORN, a mostly minority (i.e. black) organization is white?

The executive directory is Steve Kest and he is white.

Maybe blacks should look to their "leaders" for the root of the problems.
