Why is it so difficult for people to be honest with themselves, fair to others, and to keep life issues in proper perspective and priority? Maybe we should make this a thread where each of us can "confess". What do ya think, ATS?


whenever i talk about how white men are the worst it makes them cry


What do you have against White Men? Did one of them mistreat you?

A person's prejudices may predispose them to take offense where none was meant.


True. Still doesn't mean that we all have prejudices.

But that comment does give us insight in to why so many of you take offense so easily.

We used to engage in this behavior in groups. We called it comedy.

Nowadays, comedians are an endagered breed because they could offend someone in the audience with a joke.


I don't think it has ever been possible to please everyone. I think the trend of people being easily insulted started with the Oprah Winfrey show. She focused a lot on sensitivity and feelings. Back in the 90's, I thought she was neat. In hindsight, I think she "over sensitized" America.

That statement might not mean it, but we do all have prejudices. All of us. Me. You.

Being prejudiced and making fun of someone for a certain quality are two different things.

Prejudice implies a dislike or hatred of someone for a specific reason. You can make fun of someone you absolutely love.


So which one is it when a guy from Mexico cuts you off on the highway, and you say, "How do these damned Mexicans pass their drivers exam?"

No, I'm saying that racism is the same as being prejudiced over a certain trait.

Honestly yes, but good luck ever getting that level of honesty out of anyone ever, reminds me of the old "it's not what you know, it's what you can prove" and from a philosophical perspective some might argue the key to peace of mind and veiwing reality correctly is to remove all bias and prejudice from oneself if even for only brief moments. It is said that for those who have the tao any effect is recreatable, I wonder what that means.

Yup.

I'm prejudiced against pedophiles, rapists, murderers, nazis, skinheads, and speedos.

I have no problem rounding them all up and tossing them onto some desolate island in the middle of the Antarctic Ocean where they can all happily live amongst one another. Thunderdome.


And I'm not afraid to admit it.






Thanks for admitting it, CranialSponge. Your "prejudice" is a positive and healthy one!

I disagree. Everyone should be approached or addressed with a manner of respect until they prove to be unrespectable, regardless of your own inherent biases.

That's not being prejudiced, that's being angry in the moment, I've said far worse but I don't hate all women or all old people because they can't drive.

You're saying that they are suffering from inner guilt, of some kind.

I don't say those sorts of things.

Interesting. I have been accused of being racist for nothing more than knowing & proving that Obama is a lying fraud.

IIRC, you even scoffed at me for proving he is.

You have plenty of room to work on your irrational bias. I base that on what you have proven to me.

Your analysis reminds me of what I heard over and over again during the 2016 Presidential election campaign. The candidate who made Americans "feel the best" would win. The actual message was of secondary importance.
