    Are all black men brainwashed? (Read Warning: post #540)

    I've seen this argument repeated by many posters in many other threads for the year I've been here and I want to know if this is a common assessment of black men - that they are brainwashed and consequently, do not have or are incapable of having their own thoughts. So, do you agree? Moreover, if you answer "yes", do you believe that black men are more "brainwashed" than any other race? And if so, why do you think that black men think less for themselves than other races?

    I've already told you that I was going to go back edit it to "many black men." But you don't want to hear that. You want to call me out in a post.

    My vote is "No," by the way.

    Do you think "many white men" are brainwashed too? What about women, are they resistant?

    i think being brainwashed just depends on one's brain capacity ,it has nothing to do with race

    Politically the US black population is essentially monolithic, far more so than any other demographic. I expect that's where the idea of brainwashing comes from.

    Monolithic = brainwashed?
    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.

    To answer my own question:

    I don't think that all or many black men are "brainwashed". People use this type of language to refer to religious people often as well and object to that when it's used in broad strokes too. I think most people develop much of their worldview initially from the people and things they interact with in childhood - parents, media, friends, etc.. However, I think "brainwashing" is far too strong of a word with implications that would be lost if it applied to something as normal as childhood learning. Moreover, when people get older, they tend to drift from certain aspects of their childhood worldview as they have their own new and different experiences.

    I actually went back to the thread to get the quote where you said that, but you said, "I almost went back" not "I was going to go back", so I assumed that meant you thought the quote was fine which is why you "almost" instead of "actually" went back, so I just kept it like it is since "almost" going back wouldn't change your initial comment. I also don't see much a difference between "all" and "many" to be honest.
