I'm not trying to ignite a flame war or anything, it's just a simple question.

The KKK. They hate Jews. But worship Jesus. Jesus was a Jew. I'm confused.

Is this just a case of Hollywood not getting their facts right? Obviously, I've never met a KKK "member" in person before.

I bet when Schneider turns 38, he will have broken all of Luongo's records.

I could explain it to you but it would certainly ignite a sh&t storm and I just don't have the energy for it.

Exactly. Any one or group who promotes hate towards someone or something else doesn't even deserve recognition and should be treated with the utmost disrespect.

OP: Hate in general is stupid and doesn't make sense.

I'm closely related to someone who was a career-long Bruins player, but I still hate the Bruins.
Hate is stupid and unreasonable.

Plain and simple, racists suck.

Think of all the wonderful people that you wouldn't meet or associate with just because you dislike the color of their skin. Racists are a bunch o' douchebags.

So racists are stupid, basically. :lol: Makes sense.

I find in my personal experience, hating is way too hard. Being mean is hard. Smiling and being nice is easier and my lazy ass is always looking for the easy way out. You could stab me in the back (figuratively, not literally) and after like 4 hours I'll be nice again.

You could literally stab me in the back and 4 hours later I'll be nice again. In fact one of my best friends cut my hand open with a machete and I was just like: Dude! ... Take a picture!

He never did take a picture.

Agreed, but I'll also use my freedom of speech to criticize the hell out of their racist views.

"Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens & the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We (Allah) parted them? And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?" (Qur'an 21:30)

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” (David Rockefeller)

The kkk was pretty much a "white" response to the usa's goal of reconstruction after the civil war. non-african members of society responded to land being removed from them and being given to freed slaves.
the religious b.s. was added on as time went by. there is a PBS 'American Experience' two-part episode called "Reconstruction" which covers, in part, a bit of the birth and growth of the kkk and racial fanaticism in that era.

however, racism in any form is particularly ugly and uneccesary. "we are all the same color underneath" to quote hip hop artist Paris. imo religion only helps to maintain racist philosophy and gives racists a reason to hate. for others its just lack of ability to accept cultures unknown or foreign to them.

Racists are just plain lazy, if you want to hate someone take the time to talk to them and get to know them, you will probably find a much more legitimate reason to dislike them.

I dislike America but I don't hate Americans (the ones I've gotten to know anyway) does that make me a racist?
