Noble’s letter disturbing

From page A8 | August 25, 2014 |

As I was flipping through my paper recently I found Minnie Noble’s letter (Aug. 7, There’s something here for everyone), and frankly I found it a little disturbing.

First off, it’s true that we should feel sorry for the little children having to leave their country as far away as El Salvador who are then loaded on top of freight trains that can kill a little child who falls off. Then they enter a country that can’t afford the cost of trying to house them and will be returned to their own country – which really doesn’t want them in the first place.

This has nothing to do with race, color or creed, but it does have to do with letting our own children do without trying to take care of someone else’s responsibility. That is regardless of them being of South American or even European descent, if Europe was to do the same thing.

We are in a sensitive time when our country has been threatened by a group of people who like to cut heads off.

The second point is I feel Minnie Noble has some hate issues against whites with blues eyes. She needs to get over it. We are a nation of one group that should stand together, not apart. It always gets damaged when racial issues continually are brought to the front and it looks like prejudicial issues are alive and well in America, something that won’t be missed when it finally goes from all races, not just one.

    glad to see the use of the term prejudicial (or prejudice) instead of racism (or racist) being used. much more potentially accurate. while i like the idea of the color of another's complexion having no meaning in how they're treated, that is still not accurate. insisting that it is isnt useful and is demeaning

    No more so than yours Lloyd. Too bad you don't join the conversation and take responsibility.

    Good morning Mr Brooks once again you ramble on with nothing to say but nonsense why don't you let him have his opinion, i guess in your world of communism you do not want any one to have an opinion or view that is contrary to your views. The funny thing about that is we can still have our views because we still are a free people even though we are slowly loosing our freedoms under this President.

    CD Those of us that can think for our self's and choose not to be lead around like sheep as you do. We can see you can not think for your self and continue to write the nonsense that you do. You claim that you do now watch CNN and MSNBC but you continue to parrot the very words that they spout out . Yes i do watch fox news because it is the only other source where you can get an a posing view from that of the main stream media. so tell us just when did you become a card carrying member of the communist party and please try real hard to not avoid the question.

    Salty Dog, hilarious that you should be talking about avoiding a question. I'll answer your question when you answer the last ten or so that I've asked you.

    Salty Dog, for the record I don't parrot anyone. My thoughts are my own and I make them based on my personal estimation of the subject matter. If there is a questionable article I research it and bring out the truth like it or not which many of you do not. So unless you're prepared to bring facts in context to suggest or prove I'm mistaken, don't go there. I will tell you that watching FOX and buying into everything they say as fact is a mistake and regurgitating false information or "parroting" as you like to say is dangerous. FOX is great for sports but piss-poor in the honesty department. Good day.

    "I will tell you that watching Fox and buying into everything they say as fact is a mistake and regurgitating false information or "parroting" as you like to say is dangerous." CD, there are some obvious flaws in your statement. Let me help you out. It should have read, "I will tell you that reading my comments and buying into everything I say as fact is a mistake and regurgitating my opinion or "parroting" as you like to say is foolish." There, that's better. Your welcome.

    tired-of-it, glad to see you step up for Salty Dog, but he really needs a better spokesperson because you're still trying to figure out the differences between facts and opinions. I get it, you're all frustrated no worries. Keep reading my stuff and you really will know the truth about things.

    Frustrated? Hardly, CD, just amused by your ineptness. I didn't stand up for anyone. You wrote the dumb comment. I just responded to it. I'll keep reading your comments, not because there's anything to be learned from them but, simply because they are amusing. Just not like you think. By the way, tell me, was your statement I quoted fact or opinion. Think carefully before you answer. I'll be waiting.

    Well, CD, that's about as generic a statement as I've ever seen you make, buddy, and I agree with you, they will. Now, you didn't answer my question about if your statement was a fact or opinion. Oh never mind, let's just assume you would have gotten it right. You also have a great day, amigo.

    Was 9/11 an inside job by PNAC Republicans and Top Democrats like the Clintons ( who could have destroyed the patsy Tim Osman/Bin Laden during his presidency/see his Youtube denials that 9/11 was an inside job) and Feinstein, Bloomberg, Schumer and Killary-NY State Senators and Pelosi who played her part, but eventually funded the wars through Congress...... So CD TELL US THE TRUTH.... Was 9/11 an inside job?

    Point of minor clarification, Salty Dog, Mr. Brooks, has continuously failed at interfering in any way with Mr. Willmschen having an opinion. If that was Mr. Brooks' goal, perhaps pointing out his failure would be satisfying.

    Speak for yourself, Lloyd; I welcome the innocents. Just because you and the other dispassionate ethnocentrics out there who forgot the words at the base of the Statue of Liberty---no, Lloyd, they don't just mean Europeans before World War II---doesn't mean you can speak for everyone else.

    That was not Minnie first letter to the editor, her comments lean racist from the past I would like to know If Minnie maybe was raised in San Francisco Maybe Potrero Hill or the Bay View distract? that would explain her views

    Where she is from does not matter. Her opinions are hers to express. Our freedom makes (or made) this country what it is (or was). I don't like some of what she says, but she has the right to say it.

    Too bad Ms. Noble doesn't join into these ONLINE discussions. Maybe she snail mails her rubbish in. Although she does have a right to PREJUDICIAL view points. When many of the rest of us really do prefer to see a color blind society, she just will not let go. And I do realize that of course, as long as we are humans and all have eyeballs and can concern (Is that a proper use of that term>>LOL) the difference between each of our hues, one's ethnicity does not make us who we are, character is. I want my 1/3 of an acre, a lawn tractor with a beer cup holder :-)

    I told classmates at Laney College in Oakland many many years ago that the racial thing would someday end when everyone is all mixed together, so there will no longer be a single race. That day may be here sooner than we think, and we'll all be better for it.

    "letting our own children do without trying to take care of someone else’s responsibility". So you teach your children to be entitled to the world but feel they owe nothing to humanity? No empathy for others? And how exactly are our children taking care of these immigrant kids? This reads like someone afraid their own child won't be as entitled as they expect society to let them be over other children. And the "I feel Minnie Noble has some hate issues against whites with blues eyes" comment says worlds more about yourself than someone else. That could have been phrased much more appropriately without the white victimhood nonsense. And I am a 12th generation American and quite caucasian.
