My suggestion was simply that screaming "MINORITY" as you've basically been doing is a poor argument point, because the reality is that one can twist things around in any fashion to attempt to classify various groups as "Minorities" or not. You even note that today, currently, men are minorities and women are not...and you claimed that there should not be outrage if a non-minority is slurred...but when I point that out, you shuffle around and go "Well, they ARE a minority if you just look at it in a different fashion". Which if you want to go that route...fine. But the same type of logic and attempt to twist the word to suit your particular agenda at any given point can be done to suggest whites are a minority, to suggest certain segments of christians are a minority, to suggest men are minorities, etc. Simply screaming "Minorities! That's why it's not bad" or "Not minoirites! That's why it's okay!" is a ridiculous tactic, and as you're called out on it you just move the goal posts and change your definitions to try and justify it for your particular agenda at that given moment.
    That's because people are throwing up false equivalencies. All things are not equal. Blondes did not get kicked off their land and were not killed in droves.(Easy Blonde) White people were not enslaved. (Cracker Barrel)

    I have stated that it is not okay to disparage anyone. But I'm not going to pretend that all things are equal when they aren't. Calling a white person a "cracker" is not the same thing as calling a black person the n-word. The world is not binary. There are shades of grey. I would appreciate if you would be honest about this. I didn't say it was okay or not bad. You are the one beating down a strawman.

    Irish White males in New York were a minority and treated that way as well as Jewish White males were.

    Why did they loose their minority status now?
    People who were more different came along.

    The government went after this business to destroy it financially.

    But you said because of previous actions, the group retains its minority status and has a right to complain about what they want to.

    Why did those White men loose their right to complain but other groups have not?

    White men are not oppressed. Why must so many of them play the victim. Pooor white victims! Won't someone do something to help them?!

    I swear I see more white people cry victim than minorities. It's like the ratio of actual oppression to complaints is inverse. Who even has time for minority complaints these days; the wails of middle-aged white hetero men drown out actual suffering.

    Is there anyone in your household that I can speak to? Someone slightly older. I really do. You obviously do not understand what is being said and basically pick sections of posts to go after so that your arguments don't seem so ridiculous. So yes, I need you to get off the computer and put someone on who has had enough adult level discussions that they don't feel a need to do that.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
