I argue against prejudice wherever, I'm big at arguing against BLM. Most "SJW" warriors as you call them are buddy buddy with BLM. I call it how I see it. Main reason why I have no patience to argue with you is knowing what you are I know you've full bear with tons and tons of references to try and prove your point, and I simply have neither the time nor inclination to put in the research to counter you. It's not my job to do so. You come prepared whereas I need to spend hours just to get where you're starting from.
Don't get me wrong, I respect the amount of research you philosophers do to try and prove your point. It's a lot of work, and I'll admit I'm too lazy to counter it. I don't have the reference material you probably do on hand. So I'll tell you what, keep it up on here, will be interesting to see what happens. Go forth spread the message. There's a lot wrong with much of what you say.
I'll put out a few basic things. One strength of numbers is not individual strength. Two one culture starting from higher tech does not equal superiority of the people just the tech. Cultures all exist at different places of development. I'm constantly arguing how people with white skin aren't the devil. But white skin meaning superior is just absurd.
I've also constantly argued that the white majority were against slavery or it would have remained, etc. But you're twisting things to mean stuff it doesn't. Again nothing superior about being white skinned or male. Whole lot of other factors at play.
We're all just people. White skin has the same significance as a unibrow.

I grew up poor & white so that makes me what? It makes me white, I can't change that fact. I grew up,, learned, started working and tried the best I could to better myself & my situation.
I am now 53, I own my on business, In my own mind I am a successful person who happens to be white. I lived by the things my parents taught me, and I did not stray from those teachings. If I'm to be held accountable for being white then there's a damn ton of black folks who need to be held accountable for being black. Stop insisting that all whites are racist and want to hold down the black community, cause that argument is as old as dirt.
We are all racist in one form or another, just we all don't have the cahoonies to admit it. My life matters just as much as the black man that lives up the road or the brown man that wants to live up the road. We let others dictate to us black & white what it is we are supposed to be angry at. Bottom line is we are all on this little blue ball together. Whether we want to be or not. Can't blame a snake for being born a snake....so lets just stop blaming folks for being born black or white.

I never said I was above anything. If a racist makes a point in front of me, or worse TO ME, I get in the mix.
I cant stand it. It makes me react very badly. Dont be a racist and all is well and civilized. Act a fool and the little MF I am will ruin everyones day.
I really, truly hate racists. I can let it pass if you cant help yourself and are a decent person otherwise, just no beers and pleasantries for you, mostly. It really depends on the person.
I may never lose that hate. It is strong. It is noble, I am not.

Two tons of black folks or brown folks or freaking rainbow people. No matter what I say in this thread....I'm white get over it already.a reply to: Jahari
