I was never jealous of people on welfare, until today.

The biggest thing that ticks me about this is when I see people selling their food stamps for .50 on the dollar. If you need food stamps, then you would expect them to be used for food - not sold for 1/2 price so you can buy beer and cigs.

There is a Piggly Wiggly here in town that you can sit in the parking lot and watch this happen every month like clock work.

Ah, so you're admitting you didn't actually grow up in a South African slum. Sorry, love, but your street cred seems to be coming up a little short. Better point out some more inequality to boost it back up.

oh wow you actually comprehended what you read good on you

By all means, point out the idiocy, killer. It's cute when you try to form your arguments on logic.

"i know a black person therefore"

there's no logic to that

just like there was no logic in suggesting that i was calling your "street cred" into question when i told you to stop talking about black culture, and other things that you can't really comprehend. it has nothing to do with that time you spoke to a black guy and everything to do with you unironically blaming rap music for the existence of racial inequality

i mean jesus fuging christ dude you blamed rap music and expect to be taken seriously? lol. what about the "violent culture" promoted within music made for and consumed by white people? why do you seem to think that black people are disproportionately affected by music? also did video games and marilyn manson cause columbine? because that sure seems to follow the same logic

Damn, a strawman. I had hopes for this one, cantrell. Maybe next time.

Although I do enjoy when you bring out your "black people are pathetic, helpless victims" card. It's when I know I'm on the right side of the argument.

actually it sure looks like you're on the wrong side when you don't even attempt to respond beyond your standard masturbatory posts. hey it's ok, when i was a teenager i had plenty of dumb opinions too but i guess that damned "progressive" part of me pushed me toward greater understanding rather than just thinking "hey this guy calls my entire belief system into question every time he acknowledges my existence, therefore he is clearly wrong because i know a black person SWEETHEART"

I love when you post 3 or 4 things in a row. If you can't hit 'em the first time, keep firing and hope to get lucky, right?

Anyway, good save with the meme, sweetie. Brought that street cred right back up.

oh look i've reached the end of your post and you haven't even attempted to make any sort of argument. i will take this as a white flag. let me know if you want to talk more about real, verifiable things and less about racist anecdotes like "i've seen gang fights and women being molested so trust me, i KNOW black culture"

Catch them on hidden camera and post on Youtube.

Nothing wrong with that. Sometimes authorities need embarrassing...as do people to begin to do things right.

hahahahaha

please explain to the class how you know what degrees i have and what degrees i do not have tia

also please explain why having a degree in sociology leaves you free from criticism when you post such "theories" as "poor AA mothers have more babies because they're hoping to win the genetic athlete lottery" or whatever the fug you were trying to say when, in actuality, fertility rates and poverty have a significant relationship across cultures and throughout centuries

but can't you see? you're the racist! don't ask me to explain why; you'll have to talk to madhatter about that

the majority of rap consumers are white. rap music is marketed to white people.

see: escapism

stop: trying to talk about black culture

this is incredibly obvious but remember who you're talking to here

'

We should just all conform to your logic.

It is ALL society's fault....there is no personal accoutnability.

Drop out of school...don't worry that is not your fault.

Don't want to do homework and get an education...don't worry that is not your fault.

Don't want to get out of bed and go to work...don't worry that is not your fault.

Commit a crime and go to jail...don't worry that is not your fault.

The lack of ANY accountability by you and others sickens me.

I am not talking about race....I am talking about the lack of accountability of self respect across all races.

There are many people out there who are busting their ass every day to make ends meet and needs a helping hand....and that is what these programs should be for. Not the lazy people who are capable of working and spend their day sitting on their lazy asses.

GS you bring up some interesting points i hadn't thought of before, but your argument (regarding the effect of violent music/media not being a serious sociological influence on people) has a flaw IF it turns out that the white people who are at those concerts are more likely to commit crimes demographically (by way of socio-economic status or whatever.)

or are you simply saying that rap culture/violent media isn't a causal force but a by-product of something already existing?

music should be treated as social commentary. it shouldn't be used to suggest that black people are just more susceptible to being influenced by violent music and thus will never achieve social equality (as is the implication when disregarding relevant variables, such as socioeconomic status and pervasive discrimination)

there are literally millions of white people who listen to some violent poo. to suggest that inequality is borne out of music ignores the fact that white people live longer, make more money, don't serve the same sentences for the same crimes, and are incarcerated at much lower rates than black people.

at the end of the day, it's white peoples grasp of sarcasm that gives them the edge.

you see guys, black people just have an "anti-educational culture" and they glorify this "anti-educational culture" in their music, therefore.... (nevermind the fact that rap music is no more defined by "anti-education" than country or rock music and oh by the way major labels market rap music to white people because white people purchase the most rap music)

i mean really idk what your black friend told you but replacing "systemic racism and white privilege" with "culture" as the reasoning for the fact that black people make less money (controlling for education and experience), are incarcerated at higher rates (controlling for variety of offenses), are given longer sentences (controlling for offense), and die younger than white people is fuging racist as all hell, unless you're maybe talking about american "culture" and white privilege, and the symptom of centuries of oppression (trap music or something else along those lines)

yet for some reason "redneck culture and country music" just don't seem to have quite the impact on white people as rap music seems to have on black people (that is if we're going to foolishly assume that music has any fuging thing to do with social inequality beyond its use as social commentary)
