    You're not saying that to people who just post opinions, which would include you. Having data gives us something objective to analyze when compared to competing opinions. This automatically elevates the content to be a better reflection of reality than just mere opinion. As Gathomas88 is arguing, the ball is now in your court. You being unhappy with the completeness of a piece of evidence doesn't drop the value of that evidence down to mere opinion and theref0re make it open to repudiation by you stating your opposing opinion.

    Actually, things I described are worse because those are PUBLIC forms of racism, which I am against. I support PRIVATE institutions in decisions made under their own volition. If the UNCF or NAACP won't do anything for me, fine. They have that right. Free association is a bitch. Maybe I should apply for a Grambling State scholarship and sue the NBA for discrimination, since racism should be eliminated.

    Exactly. When I am attracted to someone, I don't run them through a series of filters in my mind, and say "Hmmm, he's white, he's tall, he has dark hair and hazel eyes, a great mouth, and a fine ass, so that means I should be attracted. I am first attracted, and then later I consciously recall his characteristics. The attraction is there first, then later I understand why.

    It's objective if the data is objective. If the data is faulty then it's crap.

    No the ball is in your court to answer the questions. If you are going to put data forward, you should be able to defend it. If you can't you and anyone else that does that will be suspect to a critical eye.

    Care to prove it?

    This is childish. I have posed some reasonable, objective questions that have not been answered. Anyone that's actually done serious scientific research will understand.

    I rest my case your honor.

    Questions are not evidence.

    I agree


    Im the same way, same thing when people ask what your type is or was.

    I dont have one really.

    Im attracted too who im attracted too

    I could come up with "preferences" but they are pretty meaningless once the attraction happens.
