    Good. We can't have coaches who are not sensitive to the feelings of overly sensitive people.

    (I agree with @Scarlett O. , it was a stupid thing to say....but I'm sure he was not thinking about "plantation" being racist).

    Scarlet - got to disagree with you on this

    Plantation is NOT a racist term.
    If that is the case - then we should not use the words "cotton", "Master", "Servant", "Terrorize", "Whipping","Rope" ....

    Where will this all end!

    "People working" is offensive.

    Some whiners have also found one of John Newton's old hymns racially insensitive --

    Saviour, visit thy plantation,
    Grant us, Lord, a gracious rain.
    All will come to desolation,
    Unless thou return again.

    We haven't quit singing it.

    The sports world has become too political these days. Colleges and universities should drop all sports and let the pros form their own proving ground for future professional athletes.

    It won't end. As I have said before, blacks have the goose that laid the golden egg. It makes hay. All they have to do is shout racism and everyone must hang their head in guilt and give them what they want. NAACP knows it. SPLC knows it. NFL knows it.

    It is the negrofication of America. Removing the white foundation and influence in America and replacing it with the black influence. Changing the names of your streets. Pulling down your statues and flags. Removing people from their job just because they say something not liked. Changing the pictures on your dollar to reflect the black culture.

    And if you protest...God forbid....your a white supremacist hate monger.

    No, better get used to it. It won't end. But now all know exactly how the South felt just before the War Between the States. No matter what they did or said, all anyone had to do is holler slavery and that was the end of it.

    And the LORD GOD planted a garden in EDEN

    8 The Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. 9 And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

    10 Now a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it parted and became four riverheads. 11 The name of the first is Pishon; it is the one which skirts the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 And the gold of that land is good. Bdellium and the onyx stone are there. 13 The name of the second river is Gihon; it is the one which goes around the whole land of Cush. 14 The name of the third river is Hiddekel; it is the one which goes toward the east of Assyria. The fourth river is the Euphrates.

    15 Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.

    God intended Adam and Eve to work in the garden naked as they were born
    25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

    • Black Population by State 2021
    According to the 2018 United States Census estimates, the United States population is approximately 14.6% Black or African American, which equals 47.8 million people. The Black-only population is 13.4%. Since 1980, the Black immigrant population has increased fivefold.

    Between 1500 and 1820, 12.5 million African men, women, and children were taken from Africa and sold to various slave trades around the world. About 410,000 were brought to the United States, mostly landing in ports in Charleston, Baltimore, and other parts of Maryland, Virginia, and New Orleans. The first U.S. Census in 1790 accounted for 757,208 African Americas, 92% of which were slaves. The 1860 Census counted 4,441,830 African Americas, 89% of which were slaves. This was the last Census during slavery. By 1900 the Black population was 8 million, and then rose rapidly over the next century or so to hit 42 million in 2010.

    States with the Highest Black Population
    Roughly 55% of the Black population lives in the south and southeast regions of the United States. A majority of the top ten states are located in this region. The rest of the Black population is split into 18% in the Midwest, 17% in the Northeast, and 10% in the West.

    Texas has the highest Black population in the United States of 3,936,669, about 14% of Texas's total population. Texas is the second-most diverse state in the U.S. Following Texas is Florida with 3,867,495 (18%), New York with 3,763,977 (19%), and Georgia with 3,549,349 (34%).

    The state with the highest relative population of Black Americans in the United States is the District of Columbia with 48%, followed by Mississippi with 39%, Georgia and Louisiana with 34% each, and Maryland with 33%.

    States with the Lowest Black Population
    Wyoming has the lowest Black population of 11,306 (2%), followed by Montana with 12,007 (1%), and Vermont with 12,936 (2%).

    [​IMG]
    Twelve states have a Black population comprising less than 5% of their total population. Wyoming and Idaho's Black population comprise only 1% of their respective populations; Wyoming, Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, and Utah's are only 2%; South Dakota, New Mexico, and Oregon's are 3%; and North Dakota and Hawaii's are 4%.

    Here are the 10 states with the highest percentage of black residents:

    1. Mississippi (38.71%)
    2. Louisiana (33.63%)
    3. Georgia (31.73%)
    4. Maryland (31.60%)
    5. Alabama (27.18%)
    6. South Carolina (26.72%)
    7. Delaware (23.20%)
    8. North Carolina (22.06%)
    9. Virginia (20.72%)
    10. New York (17.51%)
    Highest Rate
    Mississippi (38.71%)

    So.......13.4% black, with mixed race 14.6%. Now watch a dozen commercials & tell me how many included mixed race couples & resulting mixed race children. Based on %’s of these commercials one might believe that at least half or more of the country is already mixed. Is this the desired outcome? Or the companies paying for the advertising just being proactively PC? I believe it is the desired outcome to break down the ‘whiteness’ of our country. We have all been barraged with white is bad propaganda. A white congressman just said he was embarrassed by his skin, alrighty then.

    Would anyone like to extrapolate this into just how many trans people there are as a %, where we must change everything to suit them? Kill incentive for women to excel in any physical endeavor? Force shared bathrooms, maybe while you have your children with you? Sounds great to a leftist, but NOT to me. Liberalism is indeed a mental disorder. Anyone who supports it? They are afflicted as well.

    Americans Still Greatly Overestimate U.S. Gay Population

    Here are the #’s. Americans estimate the number of LGBTQ at 4 times the actual level. This is due to the indoctrination of media, whether social, or orchestrated programs on TV, news ‘coverage’, or the biggie...education, which is responsible for getting to the kids early.

    Megan Kelly just removed her kids from school & said the school was using their ‘curriculum’ to drive the children into being LGBTQ, & it’s working:
    Thirty Percent of Young Liberals Now Identify as LGBT | The American Spectator | USA News and PoliticsThe American Spectator | USA News and Politics

    I am not trying to hijack the thread, just expounding on my last post. Thanks.
