    He's claiming those with bigger dicks have lower intelligence?

    Your understanding is wrong because you think some negative racial stereotypes are true for the entire group targeted.



    More idiotic rhetoric.



    The only person claiming everyone is the same is you - by claiming stereotypes are true.



    Is that like "sorry, the facts are racist"?
    Sure some stereotypes are crazy but a lot aren't...

    I have news for you - we are ALL NOT THE SAME and we ALL COME FROM DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS - and those backgrounds shape who we are - hence those backgrounds and culture will certainly stereotype us.

    If you can't see the differences then you have blinders on - weather it's due to politics, lack of observation or just plain ignorance.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with realizing traits - traits that belong to certain ethnic groups and cultures.

    Who cares?

    People being offended or not is irrelevant!

    Racial stereotyping is bad for society - end of story.

    Redskins is not an ethnic group or culture, it's a race. Of course, you also believe in certain traits being universal in "black culture" too, right? Perhaps you could tell us about the universal traits in "white culture"?

    So (and I'm not even sure if that is accurate), and it was an extremely extensive and long study.

    Good then stop embracing black jokes that stereotype white people - you progressives find those jokes hilarious and applaud when they're told....

    It's so disgusting to see white progressives and their race masochism....

    As I said in the other thread we wouldn't keep the "Washington Niggers".
    IIRC, the only survey on record shows most Native Americans support the name "Redskins."

    So what? That doesn't change the FACT that racial stereotyping is bad for society.
