    As a basic courtesy, if you're going to randomly inject non responsive talking points, don't bother quoting me. You can do that without giving the false impression that your post has any kind of relationship to what you're quoting.

    Silly me, I see someone quote a post, and being old-fashioned I expect that the words which follow will be some kind of response to what was quoted.
    I've moved on to a better forum (scienceforums.net). Facts matter, and I don't have the time or energy for putting up with the pretense that they don't. PM me if you'd like me to get in touch with you when I'm done developing my own forum system, likely towards the end of 2013.

    I could, but I prefer to leave that to the rightwingers. They're naturally good at that job

    As a basic courtesy. don't tell people what to do.

    That said, I completely destroyed your bogus claims about your fantasy of a system of "white supremacy"
    .


    Feel free to keep crying about it.

    It's a free country-- until our non-white nazi in chief decides otherwise, of course.

This may have been true, to a certain extent, at one time but it is certainly NOT true today and has not been true for a great many years. To suggest that such a caste system is extant in America today is a shameful and reckless prevarication.

    I don't see anything that denigrates or insults white people
    This ad is an insult to the entire nation; which, of course, includes white people.

    On a more subtle and insidious level, it is a cruel slap in the face to every white person in America who is struggling to subsist at the present time, while it serves as socially toxic, racist propaganda for every American who identifies as being something other than white and is psychologically vulnerable to the suggestions of such propaganda.

    If a white person and a black person apply for the same job with the same resume, today, the white person gets the interview 2.4 times more often. How is that not being privileged?

    How is it a slap in the face to us? That's idiotic. Of course there are white people who are struggling. Racial discrimination isn't the only factor in determining how successful somebody is... Obviously...

    How is that kiddo?
    Total tax rates- People living in poverty: 16.2%. The median American: 27%. Working people who make over $140k/year: 31%. The top 1%: 30%. Super rich investors: around 15%. Help the democrats retake the house.

    You are foolishly (and racistly) putting all the eggs in one basket. This study is not the end-all expose on human experience in America. The fact of the matter is that there are many white people who cannot possibly submit the same resume as many black people due to said white people being comparatively disadvantaged from birth, being born and raised in a much lower socioeconomic class. Yes, believe it or not, in case no one has told you, there are, in fact, white people in America who are much, much poorer than black people.

    How is it a slap in the face to us? That's idiotic. Of course there are white people who are struggling. Racial discrimination isn't the only factor in determining how successful somebody is... Obviously...
    Obviously you are missing the obvious. Try a simple experiment: Pretend that you're a white person from the welfare class who just got laid off from his job. You come home, turn on the telly, and are confronted with this obnoxious ad. Think about it.

    How is that kiddo?
    Well, if you're a disadvantaged black person from the welfare class, you might be inclined to assault the next white person you see for no other reason than his being "privileged" because of his race, even if he is in the same socioeconomic class as you are.

    That's how, kiddo.

    One can only wonder how many blacks in America can watch an ad like that and interpret it as a license for racist aggression against whites.

    You're just blurting out white supremacist slogans and calling black people racist. Talking honestly about race is going to lead to black people killing whites? Seriously, that sounds like a rational thought in your world? Were you raised on stormfront or what?

    A license for racist aggression against whites? That makes no sense at all. Why would that be a license for anything?

    You need to put some serious thought into figuring out what is the matter with you and how you can fix it. This is not an acceptable way for an adult to behave.

    Again, this is the point! What is wrong with you?

    You remind of the type of person who will search all day for his car keys only to realize that they were in his hand all along.

    Nobody is saying that it is.
    Actually, this is EXACTLY what this racist ad is implying.

    That appears to just be in your head.
    No, sir, the problem is obviously in your head. You are so blinded by your reflexive precepts that you are incapable of seeing your way around them.

    You're just blurting out white supremacist slogans and calling black people racist.
    What "white supremacist slogans"? Are you nuts or something?

    Talking honestly about race is going to lead to black people killing whites? Seriously, that sounds like a rational thought in your world? Were you raised on stormfront or what?
    This ad isn't talking honestly about race. THIS IS THE POINT!!!


    Were you raised on Planet Moonbat?


    A license for racist aggression against whites? That makes no sense at all. Why would that be a license for anything?
    Well, if you're a young black person who has been led to believe that all white people have been born with a silver spoon in their mouth, you might just feel entitled to go out with a bunch of your friends and randomly beat up the next white person you see. Believe it not, this sort of behavior actually happens quite frequently and the only real explanation for it is that many black youths feel they are justified in acting this way, thanks in large part to the sort of racist propaganda that people like you endorse and promote, and which many black youths naively take to heart.

    You need to put some serious thought into figuring out what is the matter with you and how you can fix it. This is not an acceptable way for an adult to behave.
    You need flush the moonbat sh!t out of your ears and eyes, and take a good look at the real world for a change. Maintaining a profound sense of unreality will do you no good.

    Is it? Or is that just white supremacist rage that you are introducing on your own? Can you actually point to any element of the campaign that in any way implies that race is the only factor in success? That would, of course, be totally insane for anybody to claim that, so that is quite an extraordinary claim you're making. So, forgive me if I would like to see some support for your assertion.

    Ok, so you're going to pretend that you don't understand how freaking out that the black people are going to be stired up into some kind of race rage and start attacking white people is white supremacist rhetoric? Uh...

    As a society, we beat this disgusting attitude of yours back into a corner decades ago. We've had to call out the US military against our own citizens only four times in our history, but every single one of those times has been to put down white supremacists. We have committed genocide twice in our history already. How much more of this do you expect the country to tolerate from you?
