hahaha this fuging thread

why do some of you people want to use the n-bomb so badly? and why do some of you think "i married someone outside of my pure white race therefore how could i ever be racist" is some sort of rock solid argument? jesus fuging christ i got to this thread way too late

I'm curious, are there any circumstances where you consider white people to not be racist? I don't think I've ever seen you post anything where there's the remotest possibility.

One thing should be readily apparent about anyone that makes important conclusions about others based on the amount of melanin in their skin, they are not a person to be taken seriously. We would all do our society and future generations a big favor by shunning individuals that continue to "think" this way. As far as "race" is concerned, I believe the world will sooner-than-later abandoned the term. It is a largely non-scientific, nonspecific term that evolved out of a by gone era where humans needed a way to justify their inhumane treatment of other human beings. Judging by this thread, its continued use has a similar effect on our society today. http://en.wikipedia....of_human_beings)

race as a biological term is a vestige of eras of racist anthropological theory... it's been largely eradicated as a term among scholars who study these sorts of things. it's an imperative in the social sciences however, as it delineates social categories that have been constructed largely as a result of those initial biological assumptions (as well as a whole host of other factors ranging from geography to socio-economics to warfare, etc.)

it's actually interesting to track human history over the last, say, three thousand years, and observe the blinding rapidity of change in how race is viewed. the past hundred years have incurred more change in paradigms on this subject than the past 2,900 combined. there is still much work to be done, but it's encouraging to think that at the current rate of progress we may say race as a vestigial concept socially within the next century (though this is doubtful given the extent to which socio-economics plays a role and the fact that change in wealth status occurs generationally.)

How come...with the thousands of black cops in America...you ain't never picked up the paper, turned on the TV, or the news...and seen white folk crying...because this black cop...shot my loved one in the back of the head...cause he thought the cellphone was a gun. How come you don't see that?...You think black cops is...more spiritual? You think better qualified? Nah...They got enough sense to know that white folks ain't going to tolerate it...And the only reason they do to us what they do cause you tolerate it. Ok, I'm not telling you don't chastise these young men! But I ain't see you chastise the police!!

Panthro the only person to ban me and my discussions over the n word. I was just looking into the word and its origins and I suppose it scared him. So he came in all "white" knighting to everyones rescue.

it takes a white knight to fight a white sheet
