Good documentary on 4 now. What a mentalist. The definition of arrogant. Imagine the banter* if he was President?

RP, I can actually understand that position tbh, given that what some would call "black racism" is founded on decades (if not centuries) of slavery, and continued suppression of civil rights (to put it mildly), and police brutality. America isn't some harmonious post-racial society where everything is generally okay (under Obama it seemed like it might be heading that way for a short while but nope), it's still fundamentally a huge disadvantage to not be white there.

Also, white supremacy is generally about believing that all other races are genetically, or even biblically, inferior to your own. Black supremacy, from what I can see, is not that, it's instead an extreme mistrust of white people. In other words - I think black supremacy would be very unlikely to exist if not for white supremacy, but you cannot say the reverse is true because history has proven otherwise countless times.

I don't expect a Protestant co-worker to feel morally inferior to me because his ancestors used their power to undermine Catholics. Feel shame or any of that. Sectarianism can stop by the both us just deciding to respect each other and expect it return. It's a simple decision to live your life not carrying the can for the bigots who went before you. He seems intent on passing it onto his kids however.

That's not about telling a lie to them that the world is fair, and equal and racism does not exist. It's about approaching people with respect and not with your own image of what they are or what they think. they may be the ones that will help you break the very system you are rallying against but instead your racism, justified or not, will prevent things actually moving ahead. Part of the problem like I say, not the solution.

i find the people that get hung up on racism tend to be racists in some form or another, especially those BLM cunts.. bunch of redneck wannabe racists the lat of em anyone with any sense of normality couldnt give two fucks what colour you are and will judge you purely on your level of cuntyishness

I was actually joking at the start when I was calling Matthew racist, but now I'm beginning to think he *actually* is being racist. He certainly seems to be trying to justify it when certain races are guilty of it.

Thought we might get a decently mature discussion going there for a second but...

What a racist person whoever wrote that article

0 |

you guys go ahead dont let Takki's attempt at wind up or my drive by shitposting derail it

1 |

Has Takki had a breakdown or something? He seems to have lost all sense of reality and become fixated with these petty little squabbles.

TJ the racist

He's just doing a really obvious and awful job at "winding up" and then getting into a rage because nobody is getting wound up!

2 |

I'm just pointing out that when you try and defend or justify racism, you're a racist.

0 |

If that's what you think, fair enough.

Lads. Before we try to solve global racism, and gettin all worked up, it’s simple. New York Times think it nessecary to put controversial articles and the satire is missed on rascist idiots. I think it’s irresponsible of them cause it just feed the alt right trolls. Anyway, Its all Putin’s fault.

0 |

Satire?

0 |

He's not really going to keep his kids away from white kids. He's exaggerating to make a point. Satire.

0 |

Isnt satire usually funny though?

I felt a disturbance in the whatsapp, guess it would be takkischitt wallowing in white male victimhood again. Sad to see I wasn't wrong

The article is not satire

0 |

You're an idiot.

Does saying it is satire make it easier for you to argue in support of it?

The author is saying most of white america voted for a racist who will promised to do racist things when he got elected. He staes unless white people are actively working towards a fairer inclusive society, then he cannot be sure if he cabn be real friends with them. He does not say he bears them ill will and makes no sweeping racially based generalisations. He doesn't claim any kind of superiority

He simply states that while he can be friendly and socialiser even with Trump supporters, hwe cannot be true friends with white people unless they demonstrate a firm commitment to being anti-racist.

That is not racist despite what the sub-editor puts as a headline

Glad you read it. Have a nice evening.

Clearly you didn't. Glad to have cleared that up for you

Lol.

0 |

lol Bart, are you saying someone who says they can't be true friends with someone because of the colour of their skin isn't being racist?

0 |

anyone who demands off an entire race a kind of absolution before engaging in decency with them isn't racist, no.

0 |

Not at all. Maybe you should read the article.?

0 |

Anyway, who is this guy? Will the White race miss his him?
Let's see.

Must be a wanker. Imagine your da getting on like that. Apple couldnt have fell far from the tree.

"hwe cannot be true friends with white people unless they demonstrate a firm commitment to being anti-racist.

That is not racist"

Kinda looks like that's what you're saying tbf

No as ther author writes and as I clumsily shorthanded:
"Among my dearest friends, the wedding party and children’s godparents variety, many are white. But these are the friends who have marched in protest, rushed to airports to protest the president’s travel ban, people who have shared the risks required by strength and decency."

as opposed to the white people he doesn't trust:
The actual racists
The Trump apologist who voted for him despite knowing he was a racist who wanted to do racist things
and the one who just wish black folk wouldn't get so uppity
"The same is true, unfortunately, of those who hold no quarter for Mr. Trump but insist that black people need to do the reaching out, the moderating, the accommodating. Imagine the white friend during the civil rights era who disliked blacks’ being beaten to death but wished the whole thing would just settle down. However likable, you could not properly describe her as a friend. Sometimes politics makes demands on the soul."

I don't think I'd could be true friends with people who felt like that. Maybe you can.

Could you ever be true friends with a staunch republican, who believed that when a UI arrived, all protestants had better buckle down to be second class citizens, or leave for the UK, even if they were dead on now and you could sahre a pint with them?

0 |

I wouldn't want to be friends with somebody who was overtly expecting my goodwill. Especially when my own community is faced with so many pressing issues itself, jobs/drugs/a sense of loss. Ergo the Real reason they voted Trump, not racism as you assume and as Clinton boasted.
Remember that? "Delinquents" weren't they?

A bit desperate to be expecting my goodwill Lol.

have any of you been in suburban areas in america that used to be predominately white until the black gangbangers and whatnot moved in? my uncle showed me round parts of Rochester Newyork that used to be lovely neighbourhoods, kinda like the one he lived in then some of the less diserables moved in and then more and eventually the places became ghettos and fuck me if i wasnt blown away by the transformation.. used to be well kept neighborhoods, white picket fences etc and now its crack dens, open street drug dealing and abandoned houses.. he drove me round several areas (the guy was a massive racist) but i could understand why when i seen first hand for myself what had transpired in his area, the sheer poverty on display was like something you'd see in a township in africa ffs

0 |

when you have that scenario playing out all over america be it blacks, hispanics or others you can understand why so many americans are so fecking racist and love trump

0 |

The whites are in a bigger mess. Why half the areas wen5 to the dogs. Economy and drugs huge issues

0 |

oh aye not denying the whites have really bad areas as well, but the working class are bitter as fuck and blame everyone else but when you're driven around neighborhoods that used to be pristine and have become nogo warzones populated exclusively by blacks i can kinda see why they're all racist as fuck, dont get me wrong there where black families in the area he now lives in but they're working class people and strangely he gets on with them but the welfare blacks that destroyed his old neighborhood fuck me its hilarious listening to him talk about them lat

Lol

America just a place ruled by fear and ignorance

You get a glimpse into them ghetto videos sometimes with the world star videos and honestly it's like savage beasts on the prowl. Lost generation

RJ. Pittsburgh steel mills were next to river. The workers lived on hill beside them. The mills closed, and folk moved either to Florida or a couple miles out into suburbs. The homes on hill were sold to Black families wanting a better life. The jobs weren’t their, the catholic schools closed because there wasn’t enough Catholics around. The tax base had left and place fell into disrepair. Young black kids didn’t graduate cause their school were shit. No jobs replaced steel mills. Some started dealing drugs. Gangs fought each other. I actually know some white families who still live on this hill. Recently hipster started moving in buying cheap houses and fixing them up. Gentrification force poor families who rent to leave.

0 |

Some of the homes on the flats where the steel mills where are going for $1milliok plus. Rent $1,500 a month for a 2 bedroom. Amazon Office moved in. Community farm. Hipsters. Pittsburgh has applied for Amazon second headquarters. Would bring 50,000 jobs.

Whites are the only ethnic group in the US with life expectancy falling. Shocked when I heard that the other night.
Remarkable statistic.
