    What a racist post.
    That's not what he claimed. You're projecting racism.

    She is ignoring the existence of systemic privilege in order to claim the white rioters are better people than the black ones. It's racist BS.

    The sad reality is that when people of low IQ are compounded by all sorts of other social problems like racism and other factors that hit minorities especially hard besetting them ad handicapping them - it does indeed become a factor that is very very hard to overcome unlike white people who do not have those same factors in addition to a lower IQ.

    Sorry, but that is just the way it is and to deny the role race and racism plays in it is the worst sort of RACISM of all.
    You said the rioters in Ferguson had a poor gene pool. Then you went on to define it by saying they have an IQ of 80. Or did you not know my post that you quoted in this thread was about the - gasp - rioters in Ferguson?

    No dear, you said it. You own it. Carry on with your racist posts.

    Everyone's a racist to you, Eco. That's why your posts on the matter are so boring. But I did learn something tonight. You expect this sort of behavior from black people. It's understandable, right?

    Carry on with Haymarket and you two can enjoy each other and carry on with your racist posts. I have more important people to post to. Happy Thanksgiving.

    Are you claiming all blacks in Ferguson are rioting? Or just the stupid ones.

    He claimed the rioters had below average parents and that's probably true. You are projecting racism.

    I said OF ANY RACE. You even reproduced those very words in your dishonest post attacking my words and instead opting to distort and change them. You further saw fit to intentionally ignore all the other key factors I mentioned and discussed that some folks had that you and I do not - as you charged in your own post.

    here was my post

    I think you are right. SOme of them did undoubtedly get something that most of us did not get. Like a socio economic status that we did not get from birth. Or the disadvantaged end of shallow gene pool. Or a parent without proper training or skills needed to get us on the right path and keep us there. Or role models who instead of showing us the positive behaviors instead showed us the wrong behaviors to be modeled and followed. Or the absence of a good education. Or the absence of good work habits. Or various addictions and bad habits.
    Please note the words SOME OF THEM right at the start. To pretend that there are not SOME people from the shallow end of the gene pool in our nation is simply absurd and living in ignorant denial. And then to twist it and try pretend it is a racist statement becuase you want to excuse your own racism is twice as bad and even more dishonest.

    Whites can come from that same shallow gene poll as well as hispanics or asians or others. But to pretend that minorities do not carry an additional burden when combined with the other factors I listed is simply living in denial of reality.

    Yes, you are right - they got something that most of us did not get.
    So why did you ignore most of what I listed?





    Why would you do that?

    Better be careful - that sort of thing gets you labeled as a racist. Especially by those who have a personal expertise in the area.

    Why would you do that?

    She denies the existence of systemic privilege. In her world, the US is a magical place of equal opportunity and unicorns. Such a view makes racism so much easier.
