    They are youtube prank channel. One of their "pranks" involve a guy pulling a fake gun on random people. Either they are committing felonies on camera or they stage their videos, like most other pranks on the internet. Either way, you are trusting the word of a criminal or a fraud.

    For that matter, why should I trust a video made by a heavily biased militant feminist group with a clear agenda to push?
    Unless you are truly delusional, you should already accept that women get harassed on the streets. The video isn't proof, its just calling attention to a phenomenon that clearly already exists.

    White solidarity is no more about oppression than black solidarity is about an equal society. Solidarity can be about anything. It means to be in agreement across a group. It doesn't matter what the agreement is about. And last I checked with the exception of a very few limited groups whites over all, majority wise, do not want to oppress any race. If you think otherwise then feel free to prove that is what white solidarity is about. And then you can prove to me that black solidarity is about nothing more than equal rights.

    Racial bigotry and racism is the same thing. You want to assign them different definitions and values however when that simply is not how it is in reality. I don't need to increase my understanding as it is just fine. You however need to stop adding your own definitions to fit your world view.

    Good day.

    No, it's defined by social dynamics and systemic privilege being perpetuated or not. Your "everything is the same" and "individual actions occur in a vacuum" is just ignorance. It's easy to see that your premise is BS. You abandon all context and social understanding in order to create a false equivalence in which racism is supposedly ok because minorities organize for a more equal society. Your entire paradigm is based on "us vs. them" and not improving society. It's myopic and maniacally self centered.

    It is impossible for you to consider a social perspective? I guess that explains why social issues are a mystery for you. You pretend society does not exist and all individual actions take place in a void.

    Racial bigotry and racism is the same thing.
    Gross ignorance.

    Why do you want to ignore all of history, social dynamics and the very real oppression that continues to exist in society today. Oh, I know! So that you can blame the plight of minorities on inferiority?

    Who'd have thunk it, huh?

    Edit:

    My bad. I forgot to add the poll. I'll see if a mod can't fix it. lol
    I found the crudest behavior to be by the guys, actually.

    This is, quite clearly, denying the existence of actual racism, systemic privilege, in society. Denying the existence of racism is -in fact- racist.

    I consider the social perspective just fine. But I also realize that society is not what it is because society says it is. Society is what it is because of individuals. You seem to think that society makes people. I do not agree. I believe that it is individuals that make up society. And I'd like for you to prove me wrong by proving your claim as being correct. Good luck on that as there isn't a single thing in life that isn't made up of smaller individual things.

    Inferiority? Well...at least you are finally admitting what racism is really about. Problem is that I don't blame minorities for such an idiotic thing. And I'd challenge you to go through every single one of my 18K posts to prove otherwise.

    Nope. Which in other posts has been my point. Eco says that white solidarity is racist while black solidarity is not. I've said in a previous post that if one is racist then the other is to. But if one is not racist then the other is not. Anything else is hypocritical.
