    Looks like candidates for more threads.

    I suppose we're all brainwashed to some degree, but I think that's a necessary consequence of living near other people. In order to exist, we have to bend our opinions around each other a little bit. Now, to say there are specific ideas pushed primarily towards black males that are detrimental, that's not a stretch. There are certainly specific ideas about black males that are false and detrimental, such as the depiction of them as street criminals.

    Basically, yeah... there's a whole lot of brainwashing going on, and it's not limited to any specific demographic.

    All? No. Even using the word "brainwashed" is off. But, there is a general expectation within the black community that all must/should think alike. Failure to do so often gets derisively labeled as an "Uncle Tom" or "oreo" by other blacks. God forbid that a black man be conservative or.... *gasp!*... a Republican.

    I am unaware of any other ethic group in the US that has this expectation.

    I think, for most people, brainwashed = doesn't agree with me.

    I also think that particular statement is incorrect.

    better poll question would be "many" or "most."
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I'm starting to think that as well. People rarely accuse themselves of being brainwashed especially those who point the finger at others, be it blacks or Christians or some other group.

    In the sense I was talking about, white men? No. Last one? I don't think anyone is trying to subliminally feed them excuses for being poor or not having a good job.

    Ah, so you do define brainwashed as "not agreeing with you".

    I doubt any kind of "brainwashing" exists. Sounds like a convenient term to dismiss people or ideas you don't agree with.

    I don't understand how you got that from what you copied that I wrote.
