The irony is that calling someone a red neck is not considered racist when it is obviously someone feeling superior to a white southern rural worker. The same goes for the term hillbilly - yes we are superior, let's make fun of them openly and repeatedly depict them as inbreeders on TV. Wait - maybe they are an inferior race - all that inbreeding.....

And actually, I am not referring to a fear of being a minority, it is not being comfortable/fearful when you are surround by others such that you are in the minority. If I was not prejudice why would I be fearful/uncomfortable when in the minority around whites, blacks, hispanic, jews, etc? They are all my bothers.

"They are all my bothers." LOL

Not racist but love the funny keystrokes we all make.
Bullying of any kind is just wrong.

There were numerous news reports during the campaign that even elementary school kids were using Trump's behavior as a cue to bully their classmates and taunt them that they would be deported soon. Hatred that had been kept under wraps has been uncorked thanks to our Bully in Chief and his mean-spirited followers. Not all Trump supporters are hateful, but Trump does appeal to the racist and misogynist segments of our society, and now they're proudly pouring out of the woodwork. Whenever religious groups start being targeted for scape-goating, Jews are always part of it. Trump appointing a neo-nazi as his top advisor certainly hasn't helped.


SMDH...

Hypocrite much?


Wow - no kidding! :roll:

Interesting how quickly you forgot that the Obama administration targeted conservative and religious organizations using the FBI? Yep and you label Trump supporters mean-spirited? All I can say is wow.

What is happening at West Jeff was occurring long before either Obama or Trump. When my kids were at WJ (they are in their late 20's and 30's) this anti-semitic crap was going on. It wasn't quite as blatant, but my son was targeted because of our last name, which is English, and his looks. The intolerance has been there all along, but as a community you would think we would try to do better, not worse.

Yep, I can and do. It is my observation (being outside the political sphere) that all political supporters are mean-spirited towards those that oppose them. It is the one trait that seems to unify all supporters of politicians regardless of stripe. I am sure that is just as much an unfair rationalization as most such observations ... but in so far as it applies, it applies to BOTH sides of the aisle.

Ok, so that's life you get teased. The reason or nature does not count. Why don't you just punch the person in the mouth. I know I'm a red neck or bum whatever, but I grew up fighting enough said

Because, now, that person might just happen to have a gun at ready access. I think it is becoming more and more true that fighting is NOT the end result.
