  Right and Wrong Racism
Immoral racism violates the racial right to freedom and independence by the practice of racial supremacism, in which one race rules over, controls or is master of another, and -- in its extreme forms -- violates the racial right to life by acts of genocide.
By its standards all racism is wrong, for it seeks racial destruction and extinction to achieve its goal of Oneness, of one unified and uniform human race, and therefore opposes racial diversity, racial rights, preservation and independence -- the principles of moral racism.
Moral racism -- the morally right or righteous form of racism -- is the alternative to racial nihilism that must be considered as a matter of the utmost urgency, as a matter of nothing less than racial life or death.

 Right and Wrong
It must be admitted that they are right and what they say of right and wrong does not apply to them but to the masses.
Enlighten the masses and let them see, that the answers right and wrong are not to apply to the leaders but to themselves.
So let the word right go, and ask them if they would be willing to submit to the slaves to rule them if they should get the power; let them put it to their own selves and if they say they would, then they are honest but not intelligent.

 Right and Wrong - Who Decides?
Discerning right from wrong is a challenge that reaches far beyond the realm of the physical sciences.
Any effective judgment about what is right or wrong needs to thoroughly balance the long-term value and consequences of our actions against their value in satisfying our short-term needs, pleasures and desires.
It requires those who would be skilled in discerning right from wrong to "grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ"-whose understanding and judgment in righteousness serve as our example (Ephesians 4:15).

 Right and Wrong 101
We want laws which forbid what is wrong and command what is right, even if they cannot and do not forbid everything that is wrong or command everything thing that is right.
If we mean by such rights what we claim we mean by them, then laws protecting such rights are really laws about morality, about right and wrong - and about justice.
His defense of such rights, then, would be a carefully concealed defense, not of universal justice and rights in general and certainly not of others' rights in particular, but of himself and his own interests.

 Barnes & Noble.com - Books: Right Is Wrong, by Arianna Huffington, Hardcover
Right Is Wrong will show how the “Straight Talk Express” and its conductor have completely and cravenly gone off the tracks—and how the media steadfastly refuse to notice.
A key to understanding the fanatical Right’s takeover of the Republican Party and how these ideas spread to the rest of the country is looking at the role of the media—not the Fox News pseudo-newsmen or the talk radio blowhards—but the respectable, supposedly liberal media.
The Right flashing back to the Reagan era is one thing; the Right flashing back to the Dark Ages and trying to take the country with it is quite another.

 Righting wrongs for Guantanamo detainees - Salon
The judgment was seen as a victory for the 540 detainees in Guantánamo, and for civil rights organizations that have campaigned for three years for inmates to have the right to challenge their detentions in court.
However, human rights lawyers believe that Monday's verdict could make it more difficult for the administration to resist pressure to extend legal rights to the prisoners at Guantánamo.
"The procedures implemented by the government to confirm that the petitioners are 'enemy combatants' subject to indefinite detention violate the petitioners' rights to due process of law," she wrote.

 To the Right of Wrong
They won't admit they are wrong, but even if they did admit it, it would go something like this, "well it was for moral reasons..." Which is exactly the kind of garbage the fascists pedal all the time when their schemes are exposed.
The Bill of Rights was and is a list of rights that the individuals in American are entitled to, it is a cut and dry, and plainly stated.
We can not allow our individual rights to be usurped by a liberal populist movement who clouds their oppressive and Constitution eroding desires to be cloaked under the guise of "public good." We must recognize our rights, cherish them, and protect them at all costs.

 John Bloom on Copyrights on National Review Online
That way we would never end up with a system of hereditary privilege, similar to the printers guilds of Renaissance England, who tied up rights to dead authors and tightly controlled what could or could not be printed and who could or could not use literary material.

It's as though Congress is saying that it would be wrong for the heirs of the Brothers Grimm to own a perpetual copyright to Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, because it belongs to all people, but Walt Disney's version of it is so sacrosanct it should earn money forever.
