Andy Rooney comments......

Right on, Andy Rooney!

Andy Rooney said on "60 Minutes" a few weeks 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 UnitedCaucasianCollege 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!

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


what do you think of this....... from what i hear these were not actual statements made by andy rooney but they did make me curious as to what everyone thinks about these topics.

REMBER THOSE WHO ARE NO LONGER WITH US AND KEEP THEM IN YOUR THOUGHTS AND YOUR HEARTS.

Common sense isn't very common is it? Takes an Andey Rooney to come out and point out the ludicrous and ironic developments in society.

They have always been there but people are just afraid to admit the truth.

guns make killing easier... driveby batting isn't as effective.

this said from a white guy... heh..
discrimination starting from an early age will affect one as an adult. being a non-white kid in an all white school was devastating.

south atlanta, why is that a black neighborhood and why is it a high crime area? poverty is the usual cause for high crime. add discrimination and you add to this problem.

white LA cop telling a black or hispanic man to stop? i guess andy hasn't been reading about the LA police corruptions in the last century. (planting evidence, false arrest with no charges, and the common practice of beating suspects into confession or just for the helluvit).

it's called self-esteem. this is what's needed to pull minorities into respectability. no need to use european-american, whites are already the majority in power.

i disagree. if a foreign company wants to employ american citizens, then they should get a tax break or incentives. bring the jobs back to the U.S.
