Then that would make you a horrible wager.



I'd wager not.

Also, learn English.

Given that you somehow believe that a place that solely positions employees based on ***, skin color and looks is "racially proactive", I would have to say thee are.

Also, I'm working on becoming perfect. When you get out of "Doucheland" (not be confused with Germany), maybe you can work towards it as well.

I can't wait to see Alma's final form. I just hope he stops by Doucheland long enough to let us all see it.

Nah, most white liberals aren't that interested in affirmative action at this point. I mean, you voted for Obama, right? No more effort on race issues is required.

Don't forget he married a brownie. Thanks to him my offspring enjoy passing white status, AND citizenship!

You're ancestors benefited from being white. They were probably legal immigrants to this country during a time period when immigrants of other ethnicities were restricted. They also chose to come here, and once here didn't have to relocate unwillingly. They lived on land that used to belong to other people, as you do currently. Your ancestors may have even been given their land from the federal government & had it subsidized/supported too. Your parents may have, and your grandparents probably went to racially segregated schools. Your grandparents worked jobs that people of color were excluded or black-balled from doing & could vote without having to worry about poll taxes, literacy tests, or other forms of discrimination. Your grandparents didn't have to worry about using subpar facilities because of their color. Your parents didn't need to use their race as a factor in where they lived or went to school & neither do you.

You probably live in a neighborhood that people of color were once discriminated against living in. You most definitely live somewhere where people of color are still discriminated against when applying for housing and loans. You probably still live in a school district that spends more money on schools that mostly white kids go too. Kids of color in those schools are disciplined more than their white counterparts, are more likely to be tracked into "nonacademic" programs, & read about "heroes" whom owned their ancestors. You were encouraged to go to college by your teachers, parents, tutors, and advisers. You're going to college & received loans. You can always vote for candidates that reflect your race. You live somewhere that has better police, fire, & emt services than where people of color live. Most of what you own is made by woman & children of people of color here & abroad.

You don't need to think about race and racism everyday. You can choose when and where you want to respond to it.

A lot of what you have is because you're white, dude. Sorry if that hurts your feelings.

Do you really not see how what you typed here is incredibly insulting to women...? Do you honestly think that women "couldn't be in politics" because they weren't good enough at it and they hadn't studied it enough?

I think he meant that there weren't a lot of women even studying politics, because they were not allowed in politics.

You must have a heck of a lot more insight into his mind than I do, then. Considering he finished his post up by telling us how anyone can do anything with enough effort.

Not really. Women weren't in politics because they weren't allowed to be. Once they were, there was no hive-mind improvement that happened, where one woman's success translated to an easier time for other women, except in that voters perceived that women could be effective administrators.

And whatever classes you envision having any effect whatever, I have no idea what that's about.

No, it isn't. Let's face it, I'm so much better than you that our juxtaposition would make nonsense of the quality of man. A powerful argument whose time, I'm sure, will come.

Until then, it'd behoove you to shut the fuck up about **** you don't understand. I'll tell you when you can start talking again.

Women either didn't study because they felt it served them no purpose, it was discouraged, or they were flat out not offered the opportunity.


This is not quite true. Education for women, as for everyone, has been tied much more tightly to class than any other factor. While it is true that entry into the realms of voting and work outside the home pushed women to expand their educational focus, basic education was always available to women in the upper classes.

And if you actually do research what people studied in school before you vote for them, I could suggest about a million better uses of your time.

I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down.

Figuratively speaking.

The house represents your karma, the fire represents a butterfly's dream of the sun and also destruction. It's layered, man, and it works on all of them. FIVE FUCKING STARS. It's the best critical reception I've ever had, and it's all down to you.

Are we really letting someone who worked at a Micky Dees for five years while in school get away with pretending they are on the inside with the corporate planning and such?










Edit: Oh, I meant to put this in the other thread where he was going on like he was Ray Crock's apprentice. Works just as well here, I guess.

Whoa. Whoa.

This post comes dangerously close to calling into question the very idea of a karma system.

Surely a rate-down will show you the error of your ways.

The weekend I proposed to Flea, we stayed at the hotel on their corporate campus. I think that makes Jophiel V3.0 a junior VP or something.

The excuses, the defensiveness, the need to blame and the ignorance are strong in this thread.

This leads me to believe that AA is still a necessary tool for our ego-maniacal, bias-tinted world.
