    I find it interesting that for those who fail to try hard, they are allowed to blame their failure on racism.

    Yet for whites who do not try as hard.... they do not have an excuse?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    White people can say that the Tea Party hates the middle class.

    Totally man, because institutionalized racism is so easy to tell. (Racism in Schools: Unintentional But No Less Damaging - Miller-McCune) (http://www.naswdc.org/diversity/InstitutionalRacism.pdf) (Institutional Racism in US Health Care)


    Also, I find it interesting that you are a black man who seems to not know his own history.

    I love when Libbos equate slavery to racism.

    I have some books you should read: http://www.debatepolitics.com/book-n...post1059779077

    Huh? I didn't say anything about reparations. That's a completely separate issue from repairing the long-lasting effects of 200 years of institutional racism, which is what I'm talking about.

    If you've followed the forum you'll notice that he doesn't even deny it. Do I understand that you're black? Well, your buddy ric says that blacks are less successful than other races because you have a lower IQ, i.e., you're dumb. Ric has said on many occasions that multiculturalism is a really bad thing, i.e., segregation is the way to go. You support that? Ric claims to have collected over 2000 studies which support his conclusion that blacks are an inferior race. I can see why you leap to his defense.

    Then I fail to see where the racism plays into effect...
    If the media keeps telling blacks that racism is still keeping them down, and certain blacks take that to heart and don't try, they will never see that it effects them less than they think, if at all in most cases.
    Let me see if I can make myself clearer. I'll lay it out in syllogistic format:

    1. For almost 200 years, this country enslaved blacks or practiced legalized racism against blacks;
    2. Nearly 200 years of institutionalized racism robbed the black community of wealth, status, and opportunity;
    3. Wealth and status tend to pass from generation to generation;
    4. Wealth and status contribute to opportunity;
    5. A nearly two-century-long impingement of wealth, status, and opportunity cannot be erased with the stroke of a pen. It can't even be erased in a generation or two generations. The effects are long lasting;
    6. Even today, studies show that blacks who are *identically* qualified as whites are discriminated against in a myriad of ways, including bank loans and employment;
    7. Some blacks have been able to overcome these obstacles, however;
    8. The fact that some have overcome these obstacles does not excuse the existence of obstacles based on race rather than individual merit.

    Hope that's clear now.

    Your support of racism is commendable. I guess....

    Do I understand that you pretend to be a lawyer as part of your persona on this forum? If so, you must be one of the densest lawyers in existence. Let's break out all of the errors in this short little comment of yours.

    First off you're directing at ric27 all of your irrational blowhardery that you should be directing at me, for you're using your misinterpretations of my comments and tagging ric27 with them.

    Men commit more rapes against women than women commit against men, therefore because you're a man, your a rapist.

    The fact that no researcher in the social sciences any longer disputes the mountains of evidence on IQ should tell you that the science is, now how does that phrase go, of yes, "the science is settled" and "there is scientific consensus on the IQ disparity." None of this though tells us anything about any individual person. That's why we can't say that you're a rapist despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of rapists are men.

    Ric has said on many occasions that multiculturalism is a really bad thing, i.e.,
    Again, that's me who says that and the facts are very clear on this. I have facts on my side you have myths.

    segregation is the way to go.
    I've argued that freedom of association is the way to go, not that segregation is the way to go. Segregation usually results from people exercising their freedom of choice on the issue of association, so it's a byproduct, not a goal.

    Ric claims to have collected over 2000 studies which support his conclusion that blacks are an inferior race.
    You again slant things so that they fit your paranoid delusions. I've plenty of studies which clearly validate the hereditarian hypothesis and which invalidate the liberal creationist model of the world. Genes matter. They matter in a number of ways.

    I can see why you leap to his defense.
    People should leap to the defense of valid argumentation. I can understand why you're so frantic about screaming "Witch" when your entire fictitious world view is threatened by science.

    Libbos call me stupid all the time. Hatuey once said that I'm an insult to black with an IQ above 75, plus he called me Uncle Tom and a racist and, that I'm a white dude pretending to be black. Very early in this thread, I was told that I'm not black; that assumption was made because I, "don't think like a black dude", I'm sure. I've been called a racist, repeatedly because I oppose Obama's policies. Alllllllllll done by Libbos.

    So, I'll take ric over the Libbos, any day.
