Why shouldn't I care ? Is the fight for inequality limited to African Americans ?
Your "two brothers" comment didnt come off as fighting for inequality. Just using over the top sarcasm to deflect from a serious issue thats being discussed nationally right now because it obviously made you uncomfortable. If a person make a post in the Tinderbox about women's rights or some asian guy feels he was fired unjustly, Im not gonna go in there passionately and lampoon the topic. But that is exactly what you do every time which makes it seem like you have something invested. So again I ask, how does this exactly affect you?
How does it affect you? Have you been passed over for an NFL job on the basis of skin color?
No I have not, I am not an NFL exec. But my nephew who plays QB may decide to become one one day. His son may decide he wants to one day. Just like you and Zod want your kids to have every opportunity afforded to them, so do I mine. Yet you lampoon me when I try to do that and call me "militant" for it. The fact this board has always grossly underrepresented the black portion of the Carolina Panthers fanbase is probably why you share this view. Thats why I stand out on this forum, yet in the real world and other sports forums I go to, I dont.
Where did I explicitly say that ?
You hinted that I just wanted to hire black people for the sake of hiring black people. Which pretty much implied they were not qualified. That was a very self serving perspective Kurb.
Where am I on eggshells ? Why would you assume I was? Am I now considered racist b/c I have disagreed with your comments ?
You're on eggshells because you let white dudes go on long spills about eugenics and whatever jargon was in them threads last week and didnt feel a need to "set them straight" the way you always seem to do with me or even appear in the thread. But let me make a thread about topic currently being discussed and here comes Captain-Save-A-Kurb to the rescue with over the top sarcasm to deflect from something he's uncomfortable with.
What are you even talking about? Are you projecting a preconceived notion about me based on my skin color ? Is a white person banned from speaking on this subject ?
You're the one who implied I was saying just hire black people just to hire them. So you projected a preconceived notion towards me. You put words in my mouth. I wouldnt say a white person is banned from this subject. But on this board its always gonna be 1 (me) against 5 or 1 against 20. There just arent enough blacks represented on this board to get an open honest discussion. Thats why its cheesy seeing a thread that revolves around a black issue (in Tinderbox for example) and not a single black person in there to speak on it. Thats very self serving and "safe" for some on this board.
Who's scared? Does an opposing view point upset you so much that this is all you have to reply with ?
Kurb you run from the topic of race all the time. You're scared. Its OK. You're obviously not equipped to discuss it or not comfortable. Some people fight, some people hide under the bed. You hide under the bed, but thats cool, you're not an AFRICAN AMERICAN so you have that luxury, use it. Maybe if you were an AFRICAN AMERICAN you'd understand hiding under the bed isnt always an option. Im not gonna beat you up about that though.
Then act like it. Why not bring intelligent discussion instead of lame over the top sarcasm?
Nope, you don't strike me as a big fan of those sports, but if you are, feel free.
I'm not and could care less. But if 90% of NASCAR was black and all the owners and people behind the scenes were white, I'd say the same thing, its a modern day plantation.
Oh yes the poor helpless NFL player. Let us lament over their struggles. Tell me How you relate to a young multimilliare, or a struggling practice squad player. You have as much in common with Vince Wilfork as I do with Matt Birk.
I can relate to people assuming Im not qualified for something or less intelligent simply because Im black.
But keep playing, I'm bored at work and can do this pretty much nonstop.
Or until I get bored and lock the thread as it has done what you wanted it to do, attract attention.
You're welcome for that btw.
I notice you still havent commented on the topic at hand. Its hard to defend the indefensible ehh? You're still deflecting.
