As I’ve blogged about before, Facebook provides a great platform for debate about a lot of things. You also get to “see” a diverse group of people, and you get to “hear” what they really think.
Remember that according to the MSM (main stream media), we conservatives are supposed to be the racial bigots. We are the ones full of antipathy and clinging to our guns. Well, part of that is true. We always cling to our guns.
Calvin Lester started a wall post about 2 of Glover’s recent endorsements from a couple of local Republicans. The conversation went downhill from there.
It really just goes to show you who the real racists are. A lot of people still have a chip on their shoulder and see life ONLY in terms of race. Fortunately, the majority of us out here do not. We look at the character of a person.
EDIT 11-1-2010: Apparently, Mayor Cedric Glover thinks highly of racial morons as well.
It is my honor to introduce him, because he’s an outstanding young man who is without question, one of Shreveport’s very best and very brightest. — Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover, City Council Meeting, April 27, 2010

Apparently, the ACLU of Louisiana likes Steven Jackson’s version of civil rights also. He is the Field Organizer for the Shreveport area.
Having a staff presence in Shreveport will help the ACLU respond to civil liberties concerns in that part of the state. Steven is a great asset to the Shreveport area and to the ACLU and will make us more responsive problems arise in the Northwest corner of the state. — Marjorie Esman, Executive Director of the ACLU of Louisiana
Civil liberties concerns? I guess that means as long as you agree with Steven’s political and racist views.
