- its not getting me anywhere, just as its not getting any of you anywhere. which is sad. apparently there is no way society or this planet will ever get passed our past. there will never be a discussion with how we can move forward as a people, and although i am not racist in any shape or form, because i am white every remark i make that can be taken that way, will be. and THAT is racism.Jun 21, 2012
- "Why do you think that anything that you have said isn't something that we hear over and over +brian thomaston ? You are not saying anything new, insightful or informative. If black folks got a dollar for every time whites spew the same repetitive garbage each of us would have a 40 acres & a mule." that sounds like a generalization based on race. at least to me, and isnt this what its about? what insults me, or you, as a person?Jun 21, 2012
- i didn't edit anything, i copied it, using copy and paste. and now even more generalizations, i don't watch fox news at all. i don't have any bias, but its plain as the nose on your face that you do.. and as for other 'black people are the real racists' no. there are actually several people in this conversation who have actually made valid points, and didn't generalize, and were generally cordial, even in discourse. I called you out because you are the one making the generalizations. and wow.. was i right, now its go somewhere else, we don't want to read your views.. and twaddle.. whatever that is.. i was actually extending an olive branch, with the final statement about whats really the point, whether you or i are insulted.. and yet you bash me.. i wont reply further on this topic, since obviously my opinion is not wanted or appreciated. good day.Jun 21, 2012
- Real simple Brian, are you here to fight or are you here to talk. Because now? I'm here to talk and you seem like youre want to fight and WIN.
I've already conceded that your point of view is entirely possible. It's not what I believe but it IS possible. I'm afraid that you're not going to get me to believe otherwise and if that's what you're going for, THE WIN, then I'm afraid that you might as well pack it up because that's not gonna happen.
It's not because you're white Brian. There are enough white people out there who GET IT. Even if they dont agree, but they understand where we're coming from in this and other particular instances.
You're JUST NOT ONE OF THEM.
Your arguments and tactics are very familiar to me in that I've run into them on many boards where I've been the minority and have DARED to speak up about race and race relations. You think this thread is bad? There's nothing quite as AWESOME as an echo chamber of white guys discussing race (especially about blacks) with the arguments of...wait for it...
*Blacks are constantly looking for things to complain about.*
or my other favorite argument
*If blacks are complaining about racism, THEY ARE THE RACISTS.*
Things that you have either said or alluded to in your arguments here. So to be fair it's not that is generalizing. It's that we've all seen these same arguments and dismissals time and time again from people we've engaged who happen to be white. I've encountered it in meatspace AND on the internerd.
So again Brian and yes I'm pressing, what exactly do you hope to achieve here?Jun 21, 2012
