I think it's one of those deals where both sides are right, and both are wrong. I mean, freedom of speech is great, but on the other hand you can't yell "fire" in a crowded theater or wear "I hate black people" in downtown Harlem. At least not without consequences.

If you were getting ready to board a plane with your family, would you want a man with Arabic writing on his shirt getting on board? I'll be honest...I wouldn't. We have to adapt to their culture when we're over there. Women don't walk around in short shorts, etc.

why wouldn't you want a man with arabic writing on his shirt to get on a plane with you?

how would you feel about a bus or a train?

We have to adapt to their culture over there because they are not tolerant. We are supposed to be.

His "Arabic writing" probably said "Burger King" or something similar....

So they should be able to throw anyone off the plane who speaks Arabic as well, I take it.

Anyone who could successfully translate the shirt should be refused the right to fly as well.

america is multicultural. people have immigrated here from all over the world since the country was conceived. "no foreign languages on shirts" is not part of america's culture.

    • i just took this test again for shits and i got infj, whereas last year i got intj. so my thinking got flipped to feeling but it's still fairly close. other than that, i'm still an introvert but it went down from last year from 72% to 59%. i'm not really surprised because i got a job in nyc in the last year that has forced me to adapt to social interaction. other than that there were no massive changes though.
    • Jesus. A 3-4 OLB at #8? Two major off-field character concerns in the 2nd round? Another slow WR in the 3rd? Never. Gonna. Happen. There's at least a decent chance that his top three picks won't even be on our draft board. Gettleman has said numerous times in the past that guys who aren't scheme fits for us aren't on our draft board. There goes McKinley. Given our past with guys like Carruth and Hardy, there's zero chance that Mixon is on our board. Given Robinson's off-field issues involving a stolen gun, I'd say there's a better than average chance that he's not on our board either. You'd be hard pressed to come up with a more unrealistic mock draft for the Panthers if you set out to try to do just that.
