    Andy Rooney said on "60 Minutes" a while back:

    I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except numbers. The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America. Try to have things like the United Caucasian College Fund, Cloud Magazine, White Entertainment
    Television, or Miss White America; and see what happens...Jesse Jackson will be knocking down your door.

    Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a killer. You can kill someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is trying to ban you from driving to the ball game.

    I believe they are called the Boy Scouts for a reason, that is why there are no girls allowed. Girls belong in the Girl Scouts! ARE YOU LISTENING MARTHA BURKE?

    I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is not a phobia, it is an opinion.

    I have the right "NOT" to be tolerant of others because they are different, weird, or tick me off.

    When 70% of the people who get arrested are black, in cities where 70% of the population is black, that is not racial profiling, it is the Law of Probability.

    I believe that if you are selling me a milkshake, a pack of cigarettes, a newspaper or a hotel room, you must do it in English! As a matter of fact, if you want to be an American citizen, you should have to speak English!

    My father and grandfather didn't die in vain so you can leave the countries you were born in to come over and disrespect ours.

    I think the police should have every right to shoot your sorry ass if you threaten them after they tell you to stop. If you can't understand the word "freeze" or "stop" in English, see the above lines.

    I don't think just because you were not born in this country, you are qualified for any special loan programs, government sponsored bank loans or tax breaks, etc., so you can open a hotel, coffee shop, trinket store, or any other business.

    We did not go to the aid of certain foreign countries and risk our lives in wars to defend their freedoms, so that decades later they could come over here and tell us our constitution is a living document; and open to their interpretations!

    I don't hate the rich I don't pity the poor.

    I know pro wrestling is fake, but so are movies and television. That doesn't stop you from watching them.

    I think Bill Gates has every right to keep every penny he made and continue to make more. If it ticks you off, go and invent the next operating system that's better, and put your name on the building.

    It doesn't take a whole village to raise a child right, but it does take a parent to stand up to the kid; and smack their little behinds when necessary, and say "NO!"

    I think tattoos and piercing are fine if you want them, but please don't pretend they are a political statement. And, please, stay home until that new lip ring heals. I don't want to look at your ugly infected mouth as you serve me French fries!

    I am sick of "Political Correctness." I know a lot of black people, and not a single one of them was born in Africa; so how can they be "African-Americans"? Besides, Africa is a continent. I don't go around saying I am a European-American because my great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather was from Europe. I am proud to be from America and nowhere else

    When I was in the military I worked down the hall from equal opportunity at one point.

    If you want a good example of the racism in Political Correctness it doesn't get much better then this.

    I asked him:

    "Gordon, I want to pick your brain for a second. 70% of South Africa is white right? Let's say one of these Anglo Saxon types becomes a pilot, attends school in America, lands a job with Delta, and becomes a US citizen. Does that make him an African American?"

    he considered it, actually ran the question up the chain of command, and answered

    "No, because to be African American you must be Black"

    G.I. Joe did the best parody of Andy Rooney "Didja ever notice that if you stare at your fingernails long enough, you can actually see them grow?"

    My feelings exactly. This is what my father's friend (A retired police capt. that has done great things in NJ) said when asked about "racial profiling".

    "It's not racial profiling, it's criminal profiling. If we're looking to shut down a cocaine ring we aren't pulling over grandma in her Lincoln. I'm pulling over the Columbian guys in the car with a huge trunk. If were looking for whoever shot up a rival gang, I'm pulling over the four black guys in the car with bullet holes in it, again grandma's safe."

    it's just like illegal immigration

    People yell Racism so they can place hurdles in your way without forming logical and debatable opinions. Usually cause they have none!

    I agree with a lot of what it says, but Andy Rooney didn't say it.
