There is a total lack of acknowledgement of any thought other than that which the angry mob insists

The grown ups I know are usually able to stand up to strong language and don't completely shut down. The US troops were generally OK to Nazi POW's during WWII, there was some occasional civility even though we were butchering each other. We are now in a heated ideological war few want to acknowledge is happening, safe in their happy bubbles. If I sound polarizing it is only because I care about my country and hate what is happening to it.

Back on topic... is cultural appropriation a thing? Marxists are starting to say that sushi at a cafeteria is cultural appropriation. When I was in school it was called cultural diffusion.



Yea well and wow but I never see anyone but Chines running these Chines restaurants. Same with Mexican restaurants I go to, Mexicans run them. Hard to call me an "appropriator" if they open an eats available for my patronization several blocks away.

I was in college had a prof assistant in a black studies class I took tried to tell me whites "stole" bluegrass and mountain music. I asked her if she had ever listened to Celtic music. "Whats that?" She said.

The grown ups you know are not the ones joining the black block.

Posting the reason you sound polarizing doesn't change the fact that you sound polarizing.

Fine, then don't claim that you want to work together with the other side.

Can't have it both ways.

It is based on what you are saying.

And just so we are clear, I have no problem with people killing each other over ideals if they want to.

Didn't say they were. I said you are saying you want to work together and at the same time polarizing.

I pointed out that I don't care if both sides end up killing each other so that we are clear that I don't have to be non-polarizing because I never claimed to be.

I think the big part of the anger from me is that, all I get from the left is: "I understand your concerns, but STFU or go to thought jail for being a racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, nazi bigot ok?". Or "ok fine i'll do that" *turns around, does opposite*
