Because he was differentiating white from black.

Why not ask why did he say white.

You can be sure of one thing though, I will be among the ones fighting, not protesting and crying about micro aggressions and feelings.
Guessing that kind of world would be right up your alley, I want no part of it.

The world of your conservative delusions about liberals is the farthest thing a liberal would ever want.

Yet it's where liberals are taking us. My dad hates all the socialist stuff liberals are now talking about but he will vote with the party and bring it about.

I didn't ask about scoping white guys for the same reason. He differentiated as though it's wrong to ogle one and not the other or something.

As I said, a good-looking guy is a good-looking guy. I get that some people get hung up on skin color, but I've never been that person. For me, it's more about how your nose fits on your face.

No it isn't. Fox News and conservative media just drills "fear the left!" into its viewers/listeners on a 24/7 basis. Many liberal policies are extensions of policies that liberals have expressed since Washington's time. And they are certainly policies that conservatives embraced in the past.

But the Koch brothers and Roger Ailes don't like them so the conservative base doesn't like them.

I could be wrong but I took his scoping out to mean a guy who is wary of another guy not attracted.

Does this include covert glances at butts as they walk by? I just want to be clear, this is for research purposes, for a friend, only.

I have seen some White People do the Scope out the Black man in public and things similar to that. I'm sure it occurs to an extent, but now we can't look at people directly?

If I look blankly and stupidly at someone, what does that indicate?


If you look blankly and stupidly, that is disrespect and you will be dinged for it. The best bet is to keep your eyes glued to your phone at all times. Even better, only communicate through said phone and you should be fine.

Maybe.

I was confused by the word "scope." To me that means checking someone out because they're attractive, not sketchy necessarily.

Scope just means look at closely.

People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down. -The Doors

It's all about holding other people to your standard. and then making that standard impossible to meet. Society is breaking down at the atomic level of individual "face to face" interactions. Liberals are trying to write a rule-book of proper "civilizational collapse" etiquette. But they aren't going to tell you the rules except when you transgress them.

This is basically unwinding the social contract. It becomes impossible to follow the rules, and they never serve me or my crowd. At some point, it's easier to just disengage from society, and retreat into my own subculture. The trouble is, it means treating everyone outside my tribe as a zombie, a subhuman. Other subcultures are already doing that; gangs, ethnic enclaves, etc. Time for me to "tribe up!" time for you to, or be left out in the cold alone,

In Muslim / Arabic countries, eye-contact is a offense, it´s seen as disrespectful during a conversation. In the western world, it´s disrespectful to not look someone in the eyes or avoiding eye-contact.

We should adapt more to them, since they are so civilized.

I had someone not making eye contact with me the other day while we were talking. She was looking at the top of my head it seemed.

I thought she was being a snob until I realized she just had some wonky eyes.

Heaven help you if you got the wonky eye

Eye contact was something I had to be taught - for years - in speech therapy when I was elementary school age. My son tries, but has a hard time with eye contact due to autism. (Hmm, think I had some traits myself
)

Interestingly, Scientific American published a study that showed that the optimal timing for eye contact was 3.2 seconds. After that, people get antsy.

Length of Eye Contact

Well damn my side eye and resting b*tch face must make me racist now....


Oh good grief. I have never wanted out of this country more than I do lately. I absolutely hate it here. I am so over the overly sensitive population, PC BS and everything is racist crap. My god you can't do anything now without being labeled something.

Ridiculous. They consider everything "white supremacy"

-They maliciously misrepresent nationalists (some happen to be white people) as "racists"

-They falsely and maliciously misrepresent our traditions (like firearm ownership or even hand signals as coded racial messages.. ie: the 3% hand display or a 3% tree sign)

-They maliciously defame any person who stands against their backwards globalist views

-They attack any person who believes in borders and enforcing our immigration laws, or those who oppose immigration simply because they believe our country has more than enough people as it is to fill the nation's needs.

-They falsely consider the simple fact of voting for Trump to be "racist"

-They constantly lay out the threat posed by groups like the KKK (ie: white separatists) without referring to their "black separatist" counter-parts [see below for SPLC citation]

SOURCE: SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER


Active Hate Groups in the United States
Showing number of active hate groups in 2015

KKK: active groups 190
Black Separatists: active groups 180


Yet we are supposed to put 100% of the focus on countering the white separatists while ignoring the black separatist groups? I'm sure someone will come along and shriek in a very shrill way about racism now 🙄🤢

The real question is, why does the left drone on about "white supremacy/separatists" or white racism while ignoring the statistically similar problem with "black separatists" and black racism.

I could be like the left and denounce the black separatist groups while ignoring the white ones, but since I'm not a shallow race baiting low information low IQ identity politics voter I won't do that.

It comes down to this: support the left's goofy agenda or learn to accept the fact that you're a racist..no matter that you aren't actually a "racist" or that the issue of race never comes to mind, ever. Never

I couldn't agree more. It would be easier to pack up and leave. But this is our home, our nation, our land and our heritage.

But I am absolutely tired of this overly coddled 9th place trophy generation. They've never had to sacrifice anything in life, and have no concept of the value and PRICE of freedom

My lord, every time something bad happens the first thing they want to do is "fix things" by infringing or otherwise further restricting unalienable Constitutional rights. It is sad their first instinct is to solve societal issues through cowardice/appeasement or apology, which is clear because any person who would sacrifice even the slightest modicum of liberty for any degree of safety is a shameless coward who is undeserving of the gift our forefathers passed on to us

Hang in there patriot
Our Constitution hasn't been this safe/well guarded at any point in this millennium (post Y2K)

It is going to take a bit more than some overly sensitive soy boys, bitter losers and race-baiters to thwart this President/our agenda.

Not sure why you have to refer to yourself as a "minority" woman. There is no such thing. There is no deficit of women in this world and women have had just as much opportunity as men. In fact, because of feminism and Affirmative Action, women have MORE opportunities than men today and hold most of the higher paying office jobs like managers and directors. I know, I see this crap every day where I work. The women get almost all the opportunities and men just survive in a limbo on a paycheck that never gets an increase, as well as hardly ever getting any higher positions. Companies make sure that women (for the most part) are always the leaders, because of the quotas to fill, and because they are easier to control...because they love money. When are women going to stop milking the system...when they own everything and men are obsolete? Women haven't been held back since I was a child and I am now 46. I have seen them get nothing BUT opportunity, and I question whether they were ever held down in the past.

Just because they couldn't work way back before the 20's, doesn't mean that women should get a century long Ace Card up the sleeve like Affirmative Action, that they can keep using over and over, getting whatever they want whenever they want, and continue to call themselves a minority. One week you women are Strong and Powerful women barking at everyone "Hear me roar!"...until something happens that involves a man, and you don't get your way...then all of a sudden you're a weak, defenseless female that needs Government Assistance, Minority status and some coddling from other women to assure you that you did nothing wrong and that it was all the fault of the man. You are a part of the very problem you speak of.

Your words: "I think there is true discrimination that happens and everyone looks the other way, but now we are just making up silly stuff". That's what most women are doing today. The reason why you keep getting away with it is because of men who are afraid to say something for fear of never getting sex, for fear of retribution (why would they be afraid of anything if you're so weak and frail?) and White Knights who are basically guys who agree with everything that a woman says because they "think" that they are going to get sex if they play that card enough, not realizing that they are just being used as a footstool, and will NEVER get sex. You wanna talk about discrimination while people look the other way? Look no further than yourself and most other women.

I may even start filling out Government documents claiming that I am a gay male, just to get in on the action. I'll let those egotistical women out there turn me straight. HA! Actually...I have more class than abusing our system and making it tough on other people.

P.S. If there are any women reading this that actually pull their own weight, and don't call themselves a minority.....I am not speaking to you or about you. I actually have a great deal of respect for those who see themselves a true equals to men...without titles of weakness, at a moment in history where they are more than noticeably strong. AS for any White Knights that want to come to the aid of this helpless woman, save it for the garbage can....we already know what you're going to say you gender sycophants.

So if I dont want people to look at me anymore does this mean I can declare that I identify as a Minority?
