You may be right about the counter opinion existing, but the first I mention was the dominant opinion. I imagine that is what Bill meant, and I agree 100%.
Ataturk: would defend a shopkeeper shooting elementary schoolkids who stole some candies from his store. The deceased often happen to have had a tan and this certainly colour perception of them but I dunno if he's merely a rabid pro-gun/take the law into your own hand/society is going to hell let's kill the delinquents kinda moron or also a racist one. Doesn't matter.
Rnoldh: would rant about Jesse Jackson and race-baiting in a thread about jet skiing. I also hear he didn't like Bush II.
Harvey: alcohol and ultra-liberalism has permanently severed some connections in his brain, he cannot seem to see anything but the specifics of a situation; no causes, no consequences, no social phenomenons, no group effect.
kai: get off my lawn or I'll shoot you, justice!! Serves him right for being a gangbanger!!
just to take a few I noticed.
