  • Mizzou's Harvey resorts to the race card

    “It's hard for me being an opinionated, young black man in a town like Columbia,” said Harvey, “with all these people throwing (stuff) in my face.”

    Thanks to people like Jesse and Al, it's easier to blame others than accept responsibility for your actions.
    Asked what he would do differently in Iraq, Kerry said, "Right now, what I would do differently is, I mean, look, I'm not the president, and I didn't create this mess so I don't want to acknowledge a mistake that I haven't made."

          Hell, he has a job that many of us would love to have, paying him over 100 g's a year.

          I cant imagine a country in the world where blacks could be any better off than they are in America.
          “I’ve always stated, ‘I’m a Missouri Tiger,’” Anderson said March 13 after Arkansas fired John Pelphrey, adding, “I’m excited about what’s taking place here.”

          Asked then if he would talk to his players about the situation, he said, “They know me, and that’s where the trust comes in.

            Bullshit Razz.

            Why do you say that, because we give them access to the trappings of American grandiose wealth?

            I am sure there are many other countries, where "black" people or any peope of color are perfectly content with their lives.

            Where they do not have to deal with the pomposity of American society.

              You might be right. I was thinking just in materialistic terms.

                What did he say that's not true?

                I can relate. It's fine and dandy to have other folks mention racial issues, but, if I even mention it in passing, I'm playing a race card.

                    A person's personal wealth has nothing to do with it. I see a unwritten double standard still in place. When a black person speaks out on issues, he/she is either playing a "race card" or is stirring up trouble. If my white counterparts do the same thing, they're looked at as being go-getters and aggresive.

                        Those darned collard greens and fried chicken I ate last night must have put me back in touch with my black side

                        Anyway, I do believe location does play into the matter. Put Harvey in say, Ann Arbor Michigan, Columbus Ohio, or alot of other campuses, and he would be given alot more room to vocalize his thoughts.

                          Would have to go along with that. Columbia remains a bit backwards.

                          Its a work in progress.

                          The move to hire Floyd as the university president could have helped move things in the right direction but those tapes with his wife and Amy Stewart were not helpful...at all.

                            Kev,

                            Thats not accurate in my opinion. It seems like one of the reasons we can never move past the horrors of segragation, is because one party(not political) can never address issues for fear of being labeled a "racist". Thus the immediate turn about of "race card".

                            In my opinion, if a black and a white were to bring up issues reagrding race, both would be labeled. One a racist, the other playing the race card.

                            Just as other tough topics, people exploit sensitivities to avoid discussion.
