Do you consider yourself a civil rights activist?

If so, please explain.
Some will die in hot pursuit
And fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit
While sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life
And drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche
Coming down the mountain

    Yes.  I'm a strict Constitutionalist.  Commies and socialist should not be allowed in public office, if they want that form of gubernment they should pack up and leave for the turd world crap hole of their choice.

    All gun laws are unconstitutional period. Punish criminals for committing crimes.

    Anyone wanting to be treated as equals should conduct themselves as equals not just by demanding it.

    getting damn fed up with our judicial systems favoring the perps and dribbling out lenient sentences....it is dead wrong to allow a vicious killer 20-25 years of playing the system and laughing at victims family and friends while demanding "rights"

     The system has civil rights to give the opportunity to all peoples however after required schooling with proper degrees the discrimination begins. Now if you can invent without or with the degrees be very cautious ,the system players will try to steal it or worst.
    Most college educated government workers are just minions who can memorized data and act like they can do more with it.  Sororities and Fraternities are just  systems for social advancements in a close society to weed out the less organized. They have new multicultural organizations now which keeps the passion of dominance for all in it, if you have only the right stuff! Bet on it!
    Your either with them or your not. Money & Power separates all classes and will never change. Until A.I. takes over when they can't pull the plug on it to teach it a lesson! B)

    The problem with civil right activists is they don't want equal rights, they want superior rights.

             They seek to dominate and complete the system and teach everyone who uses violence for dominance with any tribe or race as racists and since The Second Amendment is/was the lowest common denominator for control of their justice they must eliminated it to instill law and order over us without having the disenfranchised protest violently.  We The People of in The  USA are the only ones left to remove this infraction from . Just look at Merkel and the Muslims with Germany for reference.
    All societies must have multicultural views  & must disarm all tribes,races and colors and increase the melting pot to conquer nationalism, religious and  racist violence.

    There is no question that our country is historically Christian and Jewish,” Merkel said.“It is also true that Islam has in the meanwhile become part of Germany.” She acknowledged, however, that some Germans find that hard to accept.

    No I am offended by all double standards when it comes to civil rights. Tax supported self segregation by any group, like black colleges, ticks me off. I judge people by their actions. I don't care if their ancestor was Kunta Kinta or a grand Dragon of the KKK. I had no influence on the lives of their ancestors and should not be asked to atone for mistakes of the past. Bob

    I disagree.
    I strongly believe in equal rights for all.

    Equality of opportunity, and equality of treatment by government.

    I strongly disagree with the current notion that the normal population is charged with acceptance of that which they believe to be deviant and destructive to society.  I believe we are charged with tolerating deviance that does effect those not directly involved.  We are not charged with the tolerance of accepting deviance that we believe to be destructive to our society.

    There are still civil rights issues in this country.  Most are events or actions perpetrated by individuals upon other individuals.  There remain some laws on the books that criminalize non-destructive behavior that many believe to be deviant, and while I disagree with these laws, I am an activist only on a narrow selection of those which have the potential to effect me personally.  I will vote against them if given the opportunity, but will not necessarily go out of my way to advocate for their elimination.

    Thus, I consider myself a supporter of equal civil rights and civil liberties for all, I do not consider myself an activist for the simple reason that any activism on my part is fairly self-centered.

    Freedom and a submissive populace cannot co-exist.
