Attila the Hub on Mel Gibson

"It has to be mortifying for a man to publicly apologize for having gotten drunk and said things that made him sound like Al Sharpton sounds sober."

Yes. And I admire Gibson for his public statement: he's acting like a stand-up guy.

The bulk of this issue is between him and his family. But he let his fans down, too. So in my own small way I can forgive. I cannot forget, though. I'll never forget.

from working in the prison system, and having to grow up as a daughter of a hater alcoholic cop, i believe everybody had some kinda hate literally pounded into them from an early age, especially if u were poor. and , if u were white, well, the rest of the world just assumed u had it made. sometimes that old outdated shit might come out in a black-out stage, after we've already figured life ain't worth living nomore

we know better, after getting out from under, and seeing people that were depicted as being "less worthy" somehow, having nice cars w/rims, nice homes; keep their yards better than anybody else, compete for sharpest house and lawn in neighborhood. feels good, what i got oppressed by, seeing just the oppoisite. as baby girl was told she couldn't be as good as the boys, no matter how smart & hard working. u know mel; u were just blacked out and a little bit lost, temporarily; that's all. u just was experiencing the old poison temporarily.

blacks and jews; a must have.

if u want to know what the LATEST style is, look at videos about what the blacks were doing 2 or 3 yrs ago.

if u want solid financial wisdom, to REALLY take care of your family, look at what the jews in this country have been doing since they've been here.

to my poor white disadvantage, our schools have taught me to work hard and sweat for somebody else; not ever knowing what CAN be.

u can lose your ass in business; and eventually suceed in this country. blacks and jews r all foreignors; however, so am i. i've learned more from african co-workers than was ever taught to me in college; it's not complicated.

these folkes come here w/a different perception, desperation, to take care of 6 wives at home, to be a symbol, their household to be a symbol, of respect, to a good man. different kind of world. i respect that, even though it's different.

blacks in this country are only united on a superficial front; theY're black.

the jews, however, deal with their daily lives in SUPPORT OF. their fellow jews; who can blame them; that's how PIKESVILLE, MD. TOOK IT'S ROOT. black's don't trust each other. they explain to me how; they gotta start being more like the jews, period.

I relate to that idea of people assuming you have money because you're white . . .

I think every group in this country--from the natives to the various strands of Europeans (including Jews) to blacks have brought something to the party.

We can all learn from each other, ya know?

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
