Do you agree with British Prime Minister David Cameron?

when a white person holds objectionable views, racist views for instance, we rightly condemn them. But when equally unacceptable views or practices come from someone who isn’t white, we’ve been too cautious frankly – frankly, even fearful – to stand up to them.

Can you imagine if a US politician were to say this?

  • Yes. Minorities are far less likely to be condemned for racist views.

  • I agree and we see it all over the U.S. now.

    If you're white and disagree with any little thing this administration does or wants to do it's because you're a racist. Heck, if you're a conservative of any color you're called racist but people like Al Sharpton, Sheila Jackson Lee, Black Panthers, and others like them who are black can spew whatever they want and get a pass. Same goes for some of the extreme (notice I said EXTREME not ALL) muslim/islamic groups.
