Race realists are the worst.

I had to look up that term. Not sure what you're saying. It sounds strangely hippie to me. Do you deny there's difference races among humans?

Edit: Tried to work with your comment. Couldn't.


Inherently? No. But taught in society? Yes.

A race realist is someone who would claim that, since the black community is more violent, cops are right to be more cautious around black people and therefore it's understandable that a higher percentage of black people get shot while unarmed.

But that's still racism, because it still says it's OK to judge people based on the color they were born.

Ok, now you're distracting from authority killing black people to "they kill more of themselves!" and "they need to clean the community!"


Those are different issues and bringing them up is worthless. And BLM has already made a difference in how the dialogue is handled in this country. It's already done a lot to shine a light on a problem.

Man, then you go into whining about how black people can discuss race and you can't. I'm out here. You're not based in reality, instead on fear-mongering. I'd question if you've ever spent much time with African Americans or in their communities. It doesn't seem like it. It seems like you just think what you see on the news is all there is, which is funny, because you complain about people doing the same to the police...

Which is why Amazon shouldn't let 3Ps in Prime Day. They're the ones that ruined it. In general, most complaints people have about Amazon at any time are due to 3Ps. Amazon is guaranteed to be the lowest price on the internet, but 3Ps almost never are. Hell, they're often 10x more. People don't get the marketplace, so they think Amazon is now a ripoff. Not to mention all the grey market and old product some categories are loaded with.

More white people are shot than black, true.

But there's about 5.5x more white people than black. I just don't get how you keep mentioning race then saying it isn't a factor...

But I think we can all agree that something pretty basic is wrong and needs fixing when a black man is pulled over 49 times in a decade of driving, as Mr. Castile was. It's not for nothing that "driving while black" is a common phrase. I'm really curious how many times people on this thread have been pulled over by police. In 30 years, I think it's about six times for me, and I used to do some crazy shit when I was younger.


A speeding ticket when I was 23, with the cop pointing out that he should have been towing my car away and arresting me based on how high he clocked me (only like 85, but in a 65.)

A speeding ticket when I was 30.

Pulled over for having expired plates when I was 31, then again a week later when the DMV screwed up and didn't properly update them.

That's it. Well, unless you count the time I brought a girlfriend home from college and, looking for a spot to make out, parked behind the middle school, not realizing the neighbors there called the cops for any car there after dark.

Just downloaded it and did a match. I've been doing a ton of CSGO, so that's my reference:

* I skipped the tutorial and jumped right in. This game is a bit more complicated, with lots of class specific abilities. I really kind of ignored them

* You move slowly. Way more slowly than I expected. Makes CSGO feel fast. This doesn't match what I expected, so I think maybe either I don't know what I'm doing, or it's the game type I played

* The match I did was something called Blitzball. The ball is voiced by Justin Roiland and sounds exactly like Morty

* I had no clue what I was doing, went 11-16, and scored a goal. Match score was an A, and I leveled up

* The graphics are detailed but ugly. I don't know if it's the palette or what, but it's ugly

* It's chaos, but the type of chaos where you can chase someone. CSGO is the type where, if you see someone, one of you dies

* Enemies have a colored outline so you can identify them. I would call this a bit of an art design fail. Other games don't need this, because you can tell who is who from sight. This game requires an outline

* Seriously, it's chaos with kind of ugly graphics, so it took me the better part of the match to realize what was going on (weirdly, I may have had a goal before a kill.) Once I figured it out, killing was satisfying

Still think I may stick with CSGO for now. But I'll give this the 5 matches for the sticker to see if I like things more than Blurnsball.

There's nooothing wrong with the black culture in America. 'Tis allll them powerful whities fault.

It's not a binary choice. Problems with urban culture AND racism exist simultaneously. Both need to be addressed urgently, and at the same time.

In general, they do go together. Why are the bad, urban areas primarily African American, and why are African americans unable to get out of these areas?

Again, is it something inherently wrong with them, that they're deficient in, or is there something about society?

While drinking with a couple of folks, the subject was about muslims. The general tone was that there was nothing wrong with Islam. I chimed in, explaining that there is but that it would heal some really grave wounds in the western countries of Europe if moderate muslims would start speaking up against terrorism in the name of Islam. I was shouted down as a racist by nearly the entire group. I'm not discussing that argument here so I'll ask you to refrain from shifting this to that subject. My point is that these people fucking know me well enough to know that I am not a racist, but still there was no boundary whatsoever for them to call me a racist right there and then (for the record: I invested a lot crowdfunding a documentary that will open up dialogue between muslims and non-muslims, because I believe dialogue is extremely important).
It sounds like the people who called you out know you all too well, especially after reading your other posts.
Maybe you should take some time for personal reflection instead of ranting about it here.

"I'm not racist, I just said some things that could be construed as racist."

Without hearing the actual conversation, I don't know if Quinn said anything racist. He doesn't generally appear so on Blues. But, at the same time, I've never once heard someone say "I'm racist." My grandparent's native language isn't an overly common one in the US, so my dad would use the word for "black" to mention black people. Often. I heard that word frequently. If you have a special word for black people that you use so no one around you hears what you're saying, which is often "careful, there are black people around," you're probably racist. My dad would defend forever that he isn't, and get angry at the accusation, and argue he's just being honest and realistic.

Thinking you aren't racist doesn't make you not racist, it just means you think what you're doing is normal, acceptable and ok. Often, it isn't, and until people point it out and you step back and reflect...

Fair enough. One of them is legit a celebrity, the other is only barely less than Anita - who is only a celebrity amongst people who hate her.

I honestly don't think anyone else pays much attention.

I saw that Sargon guy on Joe Rogan the other day, I was like really why is there a Twitter troll on Rogan. Anyway he started on this rant about Anita Sarkeesian and after about 15 minutes I shut it off. Dude is legit obsessed.

Evidently he went on like that for over an hour.

I generally have zero interest in these people and things, especially watching long, ranty YouTube videos from people who think they're experts on a subject despite being self-educated and relying on the anecdotal evidence of their lives (it's like if someone gave Cutter a political YouTube show), but here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-4WCFwjhZ4

It takes the 4 hours no one should watch and turns it into 20 minutes of Sargon ranting about SJWs while Joe Rogan alternates between mocking him and, for some reason, taking his statements at face value.

I don't think it's in there, but someone did direct me to the part where they discuss Pewdiepie, and it's kind of sad. They watch the video from the WSJ, which says "PDP features Nazi imagery," then shows him in a Nazi outfit showing clips of Hitler, and says "and features anti-Semitic messages," then shows a joke involving the phrase "Death to All Jews," then both claim it was a lie. It literally makes a statement then shows the evidence. Both just seem to think that the WSJ is calling him anti-Semitic himself, which it doesn't. Just says he makes clips involving those things, which is factually true.

Sorry, rant. I just don't get why people take these things so personally, get so angry, and refuse to understand arguments being made.

Oh the internet is full of professional victims cashing in on Patreon and people "famous for being harassed." Anita Sarkeesian is far from the only one. But your examples, while both individuals are certainly shitheads and whiny babies, are people who were already well known prior to either of those things.

Fair enough. One of them is legit a celebrity, the other is only barely less than Anita - who is only a celebrity amongst people who hate her.

I try not to listen to evangelist's, or professional victims.

If I had known a few years ago how lucrative being a victim was I would have made some glorious hoax about how I was being hunted down by militant Gamergaters with machetes.

I don't get why people pretend those are the only victims.

Someone like Pewdiepie, who was already huge, went on a huge victim rampage when he claimed the WSJ made false claims about him when they never did. What they said about him was 100% accurate, he just completely misunderstood the article.

Then you have absolute morons like Sargon of Akkad going on Joe Rogan and not only complaining about professional victims, but then crying about people who are planning to do something to him when nothing had happened yet. At least Joe Rogan called him out on that. In general, no one is a bigger victim than the GamerGate crowd as a whole, a bunch of whining children convinced that Kotaku said something about them it never did.

Sarkeesian isn't very interesting, but at least she actually received the harassment she claims to have gotten.

Quinn, I don't even know what you're fighting. Virtue-signaling? That's your problem here?

You keep admitting that black people have more issues with crime. Which is either you saying that there's something inherently wrong with black people, which I don't think you are, or there's something inherently wrong with the experience of being a black person in America.

And I think you bring it up to mean that black people are more likely to be violent, hence why more unarmed black people get shot. But then, isn't it 100% an issue of race?

They also have Jeff Bezos at #8 so we can safely assume this data is bunk. Most of these lists tend to lean SJW, just saying (Sickkids is #1 after all).

It's based on employee surveys. I don't know if you think Bezos should be lower or higher, but Amazon employees aren't known to be the most satisfied, but have a near-mythic love of Bezos, so it makes sense that he's near but below Cook, who has a less mythic persona in his company but pays better.

And, I mean, people at companies that do good tend to be more satisfied by their CEO. That just makes sense, doesn't it?

Their games under Bethesda have sold significantly more, had much better critical reception and have made the studio a much more established name.

Which is why it probably isn't a coincidence - it gave him the financial stability to leave and spend time with the family without needing to work, and the industry clout to obtain capital to start his own thing when he wants to come back. No matter how much you love where you are, when you get enough stability to not need them you start wondering about being your own boss.

The problem isn't that we hate all cops and love criminals. The problem is that police culture itself goes to any and all lengths to protect those bad apples from reprocussions. Also police acadamies spend 10 hours on deescalation techniques but 90 hours on firearm training. And so we end up with hundreds of innocent lives lost.

The UK and Japan average about one suspect killed by police per year. We average 1000 in the US. That's a primary cause of the ill will cast at police despite the majority being good people trying to do a hard job.

Yup.

I'm sure most here that think society has become anti-cop, rather than some cops have become anti-society, would feel this is a hyper-liberal thing, and that those that take part in a Pride Parade would be most anti-cop.

Yet, for some reason, the NYPD got hands down the loudest applause when they went by in the parade. No one came even remotely close to the response the NYPD got. People love the police, when they're being good and supportive, which is most of the time. They don't love the police when they seem more concerned with their own well-being than the well-being of citizens, which seems to be happening more and more often with more and more deadly results.
