"Tolerance is a very dull virtue. It is boring. Unlike love, it has always had a bad press. It is negative. It merely means putting up with people, being able to stand things."
- E. M. Forster

But all I see most of the people on this thread doing is flipping the argument around to concentrate on the person doing the speaking. I think this flipping it around is not very helpful. Black people may actually have real grievances that need to be addressed.



You think you can throw out that story and no one is supposed to even think about it or comment...just nod their heads in some bizarre Stepford total agreement?

I am sorry I didn't see any point to your story. There was nothing to show it was a conservative/Republican that made the 'ape' comment,' you did nothing to counter the 'ape' comment in defense of your friend...

What was your point?


My posts on this thread were meant to be about behavior and public policy. But instead it always flips around to be about me or what black people think. I think there is a fundamental divide in this country about if even there is a problem. I have heard black people say police will stop black people in car with no cause in a greater frequency that white people. If this is true then the question becomes should we create public policy to address a grievance made by a class of people. I think there are people who will flip the argument around so they don't have to talk about the grievance. People just don't accept the validity of black people's claim. People just assume black people are being racists and have an ax to grind against white people. That may be the case. So having a study so science can get rid of people's superstitions is a good way to start.

You are persuading me. I am not seeing the value of tolerance, right now.

Tolerance isn't the word liberals seek, it's acceptance.

Tolerant is negative from the start. It's a cop out from denial of acceptance.

They do spout tolerance a lot though- they're normally speaking about other groups to each other, not themselves personally.

So what have we learned from this thread.

1. Racism doesn't exist in this country.

2. Anyone who complains about racism is a racist.

3. Anyone who gives an example of racism is being exploitative, and hence, is a racist

4. Liberals are completely intolerant of.....I don't know but they are.

1. no 2. is correct, 3 makes it look sarcastic, but is also true.

Liberals have never been tolerant. The joke is around it's relationship to acceptance. Liberal ideology in the first place is mandating other parties principles for them. They're an authorization cheerleader. They fight against discrimination, and the last thing they are is tolerant about it. They are very willing to change 'what is discrimination' though as criticism applies itself.

I could be wrong but people use "wuss" in place of the "p" word. Are you using that disgusting sexual slur towards me or dfn?


wuss
wo͝os
informal
noun
1.
a weak or ineffectual person (often used as a general term of abuse).
verb
1.
fail to do or complete something as a result of fear or lack of confidence.

Should I assume you are a sexist for not even knowing what the word means and thinking it is another word for p*ssy?


We both agree that calling Alvin an ape involves the use of the word ape in a way not consistent with it's dictionary definition and instead is an insult as per its common racial street use. But you are special and when you use wuss you are able to divorce it from its common street use. The word is loaded and you know it.

I find it hilarious and sad that in a thread about tolerance you are insulting a fellow forum member because their advice is to ignore people when they insult you or your friends.

See, basically we needed a guy like this for President. If the Left's snarky 'poetry-speak' can't convince you, for the love of Jesus can that much common sense?

I used the word in the way I understand it. Any other meaning you assign to it is on you. I was surprised you likened it to p*ssy. Why? Just because it has a 'uss' in it??? I think that's weird, TBH.

And that poster has said s/he doesn't ignore intolerance and instead, stands up for tolerance. Please.


ETA: AND, if I wanted to use the word p*ssy, I would have. Being that I am a woman...how can I possibly be sexist against women? /sarc

OR do you really want to have an honest conversation about -isms?

In the way you understand it. You mean a "general term of abuse"? Please show where I used a "general term of abuse" towards you to justify you using it against me.

What I learned from this thread:

1. Liberals = inferior

2. Conservatives = superior

Bonus #3: Lots of back-patting, high fives and self affirmation going around.

And yes. I meant the word as it is defined.

I am not a wuss.

Intolerance. Closed-mindedness. Prejudice. Stereotyping.

That's probably how.

They "moved on." You never stood a chance.

We're talking in circles, long story short I feel you meant to insult me because I believe people should ignore people when they insult them.

Doesn't matter if you did as I'll ignore it anyways.

If you want to confront everyone who runs their mouth to you or those around you, you have that right. 99% of them will back down. 1% won't, I hope your ready for the 1%. Good luck to you and yours.
