NOT REDNECK..................................................................


    * You think that burning the US Flag is acceptable, because it's just a swatch of cloth and doesn't mean anything, but that flying the Confederate Stars & Bars is unacceptable, because it's a symbol of HATRED.
    * You believe that government should make a special effort to hire members of traditionally oppressed groups, such as African-Americans (except for Clarence Thomas, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice).
    * You think that protesting outside of a US Marine recruiting office in the Peoples Republic of Berkeley is protected by your 1st Amendment rights, and think that protesting outside an abortion clinic is not.

    * You live in constant fear that someone, somewhere, is making a profit.
    * You believe that if you reward stupidity, you get less of it.

    * You have no problem with Hollywood movie stars flying around in private jets to give speeches on the evils of SUVs
    * You give money to the homeless man on the corner of the freeway, but you turn up your nose every time you see a boy scout."

    * You cry every May 4th over the four people killed at Kent State, but have never been to the Vietnam Memorial.
    * You say shows like "Andy Griffith " are out of touch with America today, while you flip to your soap opera.
    * You tout the NAACP, but criticize anyone referring to a black man as a "colored person."
    * You think a mother has a right to kill an innocent 5 month fetus because her pregnancy would interfere with her career, but feel we shouldn't put to death the man who raped and murdered 14 women.
    * You feel that being convicted of treason is an infringement on your first amendment rights.
    * You honestly feel that alcoholics deserve social security disability benefits.
    * You outwardly said "I would have voted for Elizabeth Dole" knowing darn well you wouldn't have because she is a Republican.

    * You think the guy who drops out of High School and builds your jeep deserves more money than the doctor who went to college for 10 years and saves your kids life.

Not only did Anita Hill need to be heard - the accusation alone was supposed to be enough to have Clarence Thomas run out of Washington on a rail -Paula jones was presumed to be part of a political conspiracy.

this list really rings with me, I know someone for whom this is apparently a checklist she reads before interacting with anyone (so her behavior is 'appropriate') I had enough and told her off when she started name dropping the checkoffs in her 'list of must-have ethnic friends" (specifically: "I know 2 ethiopians and 3 jamacans" - I'm not kidding)

thanks for posting. 
be happy and make others happy.
