https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img924/5517/MG84Bi.jpg If you promote a doctrine of hereditary guilt you may have a point. However, as a society we don't do that because It leaves out any personal accountabity by the "perps" or "victims". How exactly is pointing out that some pe...

When I see someone in the public eye talking about how tolerance is a virtue but that we shouldn't tolerate the intolerant, I usually assume that what I'm really seeing is just self-interest disguised in the language of universalist values. It's a bit like when I see people say they support "fr...

Yes, the Klan has used the argument, claiming blacks now have time to breed instead of working. Yes, that argument is completely inane, but then again white nationalists are by nature inane. Racists on the right do use code words to attack blacks, Jews, LGBTQ, liberals, etc. Why the need to defend ...

It makes me cringe and embarrassed when people on this forum ignore the MAGA crazies who allowed a nutcase to run the free world for 4 years but blame a small faction of leftwing people (I mean how many antifa people have been arrested?) for all the ills over the last 4 years who never harmed anyon...

(a bunch of silly nonsense) … Let's actually explore things. WHY is antifa actually a fascist organization? What are their goals? To what end are they doing it? On who's behalf are they doing it. Why are they having antifa do these things? I have explicitly said twice on this thread (including in t...

Antifa are fascists. Like so many leftist organizations they use double think and name their organization the opposite of what it really is. Oh, the irony! :lol: C'mon now, lad! Pull me other one ... it's got bells on! It IS funny, isn't it? How people are apparently more than capable of grasping t...

Antifa are fascists. Like so many leftist organizations they use double think and name their organization the opposite of what it really is. If the worthless dregs of antifa can be said to have a political philosophy, it is closer to communism. Since communism has killed more people than any other ...

Antifa is not an organization. Antifa are a movement of affiliated groups, decentralized by design, so there’s hardly much difference there. Certain sections of the media sneakily proclaim that “antifa are not an organization” without further elaboration so they can convince suggestible people that...

What is really "depressing but unsurprising" is the people on this thread who take the words of the ADL at face value.

There was more truth in McCarthy's claims than there was with the more recent nonsense about Trump "colluding" with the Russians. Let me see if I have this corectly. McCarthy was right, in that russia has americans acting as agents within the american government. But yet the idea that Tru...

McCarthy was right. Some people seem to have this idea he just picked on people for the ideas in their heads, or what he imagined were the ideas in their heads. No, he was trying to clamp down on actual Soviet agents in the State Department, of which there were large numbers. Alger Hiss and the Rose...

Conspiracy theories are appealing to people with less nuanced understandings of the world around them. QAnon and other Blood Libel type conspiracies appeal to those confused by the world around them, those who reject conventional narratives for one reason or another, and those who suffer from black...

There seems to be a lot of people denying the existence of racism in America in this thread. It's existence is quite obvious, not just through the data, but through lived experience. Hell, the fact that covid has been more lethal for minorities in America highlights the disadvantages they have been...

Every society has elites. In some societies the elites are open about their level of control, and in some societies they are not. In some societies the elites identify with the people they rule over, and in some societies they don't. George Carlin claiming that the real owners in the US are not open...

The short answer to your question is...facing racism is better than facing death. Folks in the third world face desperate conditions (starvation, extreme poverty, war, gangs, dictators, etc). So thats why they seek entry into the US. Most immigrants to the US are not fleeing an immediate threat of ...

There seems to be a lot of racism going on in the US, at least according to what the media says as well as social media, and you can't go one day without hearing the words racism or white privilege. But what puzzles me, is the US is very popular for people from other countries to immigrate to, and ...
