    1.) definitely
    2.) i dont know what he said, i do know he said somethign and magic replied but i dont know what either of them actually said.

    I did listen to the whole phone call though and he is a perfect example of what im talking about. He doesn't "accept" people if they are black or minority even if they are rich and famous and respectable, he simply tolerates them.

    but anyway if you give me a link or somethign i gladly read it and give you my opinion on his

    That's going to pose a difficulty. For example, how would one know what what I'm saying means? Maybe you think I mean one thing, but I say I mean an entirely different thing.

    Frankly, eco, when it comes to racism, you think 90% of all definitions shouldn't apply, and only what you like should apply. That's fine, but recognize that for what it is. Or don't...because who knows what I'm saying if you don't want to go with dictionary definitions. If you want to ignore dictionaries, I could be writing literally anything.

    Well, sure. Understanding beyond dictionary definitions (or at least looking at all the definitions listed) is beyond many people.

    People are simple and stupid, I know that. You think I don't know that?

    Yeah, let's define things beyond what they mean.

    lol, sorry eco, a definition of racism is- whether you like it or not- a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others and/or hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

    whether you like it or not. Sorry.

    He basically said Magic did nothing as a role model for blacks or people with AID's.

    From what I've heard, Magic has done a lot for Inner City projects and AID's foundations.

    I think Sterling is old and sick, living in a world of exclusivity that doesn't really exist anymore.

    Doesn't it sound stupid? Defining things beyond what they, by definition, mean?

    Or suddenly, somehow, it won't sound stupid to you now.

    But you're not describing what I'm doing. That's delusion of grandeur. You don't understand what I'm saying and I didn't ask for your help, so spare us the interp.

    Right. So we have real definitions and we have ecofarm definitions. Two different things.

    Partial understandings and whole definitions. Feel free to make your own statements but don't try to interpret me, I fart better digestion of concepts.
