*SNIP* Sorry, that was unfair of me.
This country is getting very liberal very fast, and it's getting kind of scary to sit back and watch. As our country's REAL problems (hello, oil spill in the Gulf, people in New Orleans still suffering from Hurricane Katrina from a hurricane SIX YEARS AGO, our economy...) but no, everyone's too concerned with offending someone else. It's getting bad where saying "Bless You" when you sneeze is considered offensive. Are you kidding me? It's a simple expression of politeness when someone sneezes. It's not "ZOMG YOU SNEEZED GET ON YER KNEES AND BE BLESSED BY GOD". As well as the "African American" issue. White people are white, black people are black -- but no, that's too "racist". It's also sickening that it's socially accepted for Black people to constantly rag on White people while White people can't call black people "black" without being labeled a racist and being shunned from the community.
I live in a pretty ghetto community. I'm white, one of a total of SEVEN in my ENTIRE school district. Me, my siblings, and my white friends are all CONSTANTLY busted on for the simple fact that we're white. Is this not as racist as white people hating on black people?
I'm not a racist by any means - it's just that as black people don't like getting nailed by white people for being black, we don't like it vice versa either. But one isn't socially accepted, the other is. BOTH shouldn't be socially accepted!
We need to think about MAIN issues. Our own people are starving, jobless, and families are falling apart. Businesses are crumbling and our economy is in the toilet. Illegal aliens are running ramped (oh, I'm sorry, I'm not allowed to talk about that either without being "racist") while hard-working citizens are scrapping for food, while aliens get welfare for their children and are able to live comfortably in a country they don't belong in without giving ANYTHING back. And yet our own citizens are paying for them to live this way. But no one sees any problem with this in the White House.
We need to start thinking about our citizens instead of foreign affairs and pleasing everyone else. The whole egotistical attitude this country has towards being the "world police" for the planet is ridiculous. Take a step back, America, and take a look at the big picture. The world looks at you in disgust. Maybe that's why 2/3rd of them don't like you (us).
Who knows. Maybe it's about time we have another revolution. Afterall, the founding fathers of our nation set the example where if a government is unfit to govern properly and efficiently, the governed have the right to overthrow the government.
Oh, wait, I guess I'm not allowed to say that either, right?
