The seige mentality (or underdog) is a mechanism to bolster any group.
You're absolutely right on both of these points.
I wonder what other groups are guilty of continuously believing they are the underdog.

That could be a never ending list to include all organizatons, groups, teams, etc. The socio-political structure of the country does not automatically adopt the will of the majority (and rightly so given some of the historic abuses).

Oh, I know. It was those "activist" judges that gave black people and women civil rights. Damn you "activist" judges!

Hefty eye-roll at this...

But this email annoys me, as it's been debunked more times than anyone can count. There's enough legitimate issues to address in our world today without forwarding on this rubbish.

And I do wonder how many Christians forward on these emails, while emails from organizations trying to stem the tide of AIDS in Africa have to fight for whatever attention they can get.

Focus on the Family is bad news. They're too extremist for me.

Wow. Extremist.

Focus on the Fascism = hysterical anti-gay organization

Neo-Nazis = hysterical anti-Semitic organizations

KKK = hysterical anti-black organization

But I guess when you're a stright white Christian male, you've got the luxury of hefty eye rolls.

Some might say that black people still don't have complete civil rights. I'd be inclined to agree.
Even to this day, most black women cannot possibly live up to America's ideal of beauty. Think about the women that are considered beautiful in our society. How many of them are black?
What about Halle Berry or Beyonce?
Well, I wonder if they're so successful because they're on the lighter side.
I'm sure that some might argue that being able to see yourself as beautiful has nothing to do with civil rights. However, if your society won't let you see yourself as beautiful, how can you possibly began to be free?

PETA = hysterical anti-people organization

I dislike Dobson, a lot, but to lump his organization along with those single-platform hate groups is, well, hysterical.
