    Think about things like the so-called "War on Christmas" and the "But black comedians can tell those jokes, why can't I?" type of complaint. They start from a position of perceived victimhood. In truth, white comedians can make racial jokes. Look at Daniel Tosh. It's about delivery, though.

    And the "War on Christmas" is really just a difference of opinions. But we get back to the ratings again. White outrage over issues sells the most advertising for news networks. Pundits (from both sides) make money from creating controversy, not reporting it.

    I don't blame the media for this, though. Bitching about the media is just the victim mentality at work. I blame the people. We the people who are driving this phenomenon, including myself. People would rather believe that they are victims than have to seriusly look at how they contribute to their own problems. It's perfectly natural, but it's also detrimental.
    Your comment about comedians made me think of something Tom did before I met him. He was at Zanie's, a comedy club, front row. The black comedian said, "Here's what I want all you white folk to do: when I count to three, scream out, "You black bastard!!!" Okay, 1, 2, 3!!!"
    At the count of three, there was only one person in the audience (of predominantly white people) who yelled it. That was Tom.

    Glad I wasn't with 'im.

    I just asked him if he remembered the guys name; he didn't, but said he had his own sitcom for a while on one of the networks.

    You understand that I was simply giving two examples of the mentality in action, right? Those examples are the negative effects.



    care to expound?
    victim-mentality = systemic problem in America

    specific applications of the victim mentality = symptoms of that systemic problem.

    Yeah, but then Johnson (who had himself fillibustered anti-lynching laws in the Senate) pushed it through over some in his party's objections and signed it into law. The reason he gave at the time was "I'll have them n**ggers voting Democrat for 200 years".

    Those examples aren't mentalities in and of themselves.

    They are just two possible effects of a single mentality type.

In later years, White men have higher testosterone than Black men. This makes it very difficult if not impossible to explain differing behavioral variables, including higher rates of crime and aggression, in Black males over the age of 33 on the basis of elevated testosterone levels.

    Higher testosterone levels are linked to violent behavior. High testosterone results in lower IQ in males but better fighting and mating skills. Interestingly, the black male IQ is 83 and black female IQ is 87."

    Black Males and Testosterone: Evolution and Perspectives | Robert Lindsay
    I have been researching testosterone levels for and in men and women for other reasons. There has been very little medical testing of testosterone because there's very little money to be made doing it. It is not a patentable drug so little research has been done on it. (The lotion it's mixed with, or the injected tab, etc. can be patented, but those are not 'drug' specific.) It is also difficult to test a testosterone level especially in women. Things like time of day the blood is drawn, the particular lab that is doing the test, the type of test being done changes the results. Testing in different countries would probably involve different procedures. So I haven't seen anything to support that actual testing was done. In addition in my my and other associates experience we are often exposed to what is called dry lab results supporting some students, engineers or medical researchers work. So what am I supposed to think about Robert Lindsay's work?
    In addition, skin color isn't sufficient to define race genetically unless the 'black skin' gene also defines testosterone level.

    Well you know the left group think is. They've been taught that they don't have to work for a living, by Sharpton, Jackson, and liberals in the government. They've been taught this for over 50 years. Now they want their healthcare for nothing.

    Well, what color your skin or what set of genitalia doesn't matter to republicans, as long as the skin is white and you has a dick.

    yeah. LBJ once urinated on a Secret Service agent, and when the guy jumped out of the way, told him as President it was his prerogative.

    that a-- was probably one of the least moral Presidents we've ever had.
