Which is why I made the correction!!! Why would I correct "'Tis your"? Him leaving out a letter created another word. "Tis" isn't a common typo, so I assumed that he left off an apostrophe than an "h".

In any case, "you're" isn't the same as "your".

This.
Leaving out a letter is not the same as not knowing which word to use. Which is something you do all the **** time.


You mean like "you're" and "your" which was in the very same sentence?

I'm guessing you had to edit this twice because you used the wrong words again.

So, your assumption was to jump to a sporadically used term versus the more likely, and quite common, simple typo?

It's the only way to distract everyone from his latter:ladder mistake, if everyone was retarded.

Which they are if they're even posting back and forth with Alma.

Oh, I'm sorry then. I thought you were implying that I would be against the black person receiving material from the white person to build the latter.

In any case, you're still wrong. Just because the material came from the white person, that doesn't mean it was affirmative action.

So, are you going to answer my question about the miss usage of "you're" vs "your". Does that count as "using the wrong word"?

To answer your question, no. I looked up 'Tis and found out that it isn't "T'is" how Ugly incorrectly spelled it, but " 'Tis ", so I made that correction. Also, I left off an "f" off of "off". Finally, I left out the word "I" in a sentence.

I frequently use " 'Tis " just because, so yes, in my mind, I wasn't thinking of "this". And no, I have never seen that typo ever before ever. You're just making that up.

Pretty sure I stated that I made a mistake. In any case, that wasn't a distraction, but a point. I write "latter" instead of "ladder" and I should take an English class. Someone else writes "You're" instead of "your" and misspells a word all in a 4 word sentence and nothing is mentioned.

Can you seriously not quit ******** this one up even after it was pointed out to you? "Ladder" is not a difficult word.

Probably because no one here has a seething hatred for the other guy, yet you're incredibly obnoxious and won't go away. Also because you constantly try to use words which are above you in an attempt to appear intellectual, yet fail because you can't even spell them.

Using "your" when "you're" is the correct word also drives me insane. But since that happens more often, there aren't enough hours in the day to correct those people.

Also, I never said anything about "tis".

Also, also, I just like busting your chops.

I did?

All I said was I support AA & would even support slavery reparations. Why I feel that way is illustrated in post #15. Are either "the best" solution? Probably not. But AA is what we got and it isn't enough to help even the playing field for anything other than the smallest percentage of minorities.

Slavery reparations would even the playing field, dramatically. It'll never happen, but it's the simplest way to reduce the advantage many whites have by way of the inherent wealth they enjoy for no other reason than they were not born the descendant of a slave.

The point was that error was on the same level of error as "your vs you're", but you're acting as if I'm doing something differently. Just like how I confused "reputation" with "repetition", I confused "ladder" with "latter" and I will always make those mistakes. So, if you're short on time on making stupid corrections, then you should add me with your "you're" and "your" group.

If you don't believe that anything "better" exists, then you believe that it is currently the "best". I'm telling you that it isn't the "best" solution and there are other solutions that are currently "better" than affirmative action. I'm not against AA. I'm just against the idea of it being a good overall solution. AA shouldn't be anything more than a temporary hold to get you on your feet, just like with the concept of welfare. I support it as an initial step of assistance, but I do not support people relying on it.

I didn't say anything about "high level" words, I was talking about words which are above you. Given your difficulty in grappling with it, "ladder" plainly falls into that category.

Predictable puppet,

Unless you consider someone who uses the word "ladder" to be "intellectual", you were obviously referring to words in which you thought I was using to appear "intellectual".

Also, it is very possible for people to confuse words and not be an idiot. You know, kind of how people say "you're" for "your" or "who's" with "whose" or "it's" with "its"..... This is not a new concept. Funny how that works...

Name one that addresses the generational wealth that give white's an inherent advantage over the descendants of slaves whom don't have that advantage.

No one "relies" on AA. It's similar to charter school lotteries in that only the "luckiest" of minorities actually get to benefit from it. Any white's that feel disenfranchised because of AA, kindly take a gander at post #15 again.
