    No, show me where I said this part of it. Show me where I said I wouldn't consider the question even if there was proof. And show me where I said that I wasn't open to proof from "both sides of the question." I'll wait.

    Even if there was proof?

    Odd. I thought the scientifically minded were to be open to proof from both sides of a question.
    I have another question.
    I'll answer your questions when you show me where I said the above because I'm not wasting my time with someone who's going to distort every answer that I give.

    Anybody who uses the term "reverse racism" has no credibility in this discussion. Racism is racism.

    Also, the fact that you don't think there are realities like say discrimination and unequal education systems don't impact the black population shows your ignorance on the issue. And before someone says that education is equal "everywhere". It's not. Here you go: http://www.edtrust.org/sites/edtrust...ingGap2005.pdf

    Thank you for realizing that effort on one's own part is the most important factor in success and then actually taking action. Far too many want to make excuses for poor planning and/or lack of true effort.

    Your own words: So show me evidence that I should even consider you question and you'll get an answer. In other words, you have yet to prove that your question is worth considering
    Let's not muddy the waters. You imply that my question isn't even worth considering. That's unwise.

    Then I responded by asking that, if there was proof for either side of the question, if you would still consider it. I never said that if there was proof to either side of the question that you wouldn't consider it; that notion came from you.

    If you're going to claim distortion, first realize that you distorted my post by claiming that I said you wouldn't consider either side of a question that had proof hanging from it.

    bull ****ing ****. if you are a failure in today's society, you have no one to blame but yourself. what? because your great great grandfather was a slave, that makes you too lazy to apply for a scholarship from the united negro college fund? because your grandmother had to ride on the back of the bus, you can't be bothered to do your homework or pay attention in class?

    spare me the excuses and pity party

    I find it rather humorous that an African American with a higher IQ than any of us could be reading this thread right now and thinking, "WTF?".

    Okay, so then we have you on record saying that the influence of Confucianism, particularly the parts that emphasize education and elder respect, on Asian society have ZERO impact on the success of Asians today. Can we also have you go on record that the Enlightenment has ZERO effect on current American society? I'd also like to know if you could sign your name under the statement, "Older generations don't pass down values to younger generations."

    It's not my fault...I was unlucky, my great great grandfather was a slave, I was born with 9 toes, the sun was in my eyes, .....

    I said that your question isn't worth considering without proof that's a valid question.

    Now, show me where I said I wouldn't consider the question even if there was proof. And show me where I said that I wasn't open to proof from "both sides of the question."

    Word of advice: Don't try to figure out what you think people mean, just address what people actually say. I'm waiting for the proof or the retraction.
