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 +S. Joseph
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?
