By definition Cherry-Picking is ignoring data which doesn't conform to my viewpoint. I have not done this once and attempted to explain every bit of evidence brought by both sides.

It was called? Jee phier are you context blind? That was a response to a specific question of economic segregation. That has nothing to do with anything anyone "called" on the first page. If you keep...

It should tell you something about their sensibilities when Democrats almost universally eschew the use of the word Illegal, and instead refer to them as "Undocumented Citizens". The democratic...

I'm using heritable as it applies to science, not heritable as it applies to genetics. If your mom is a christian, we can call your christianity an inherited trait. In the same way, if your mom is...

This is what I like to see:
It's funny, out of all of the politicians talking about dirty money, only the...

For certain it's hard to debate that blacks weren't oppressed and whites weren't privileged historically. I'm rather curious if any of our debators would comment on applying Power...

Not exactly true. Culture isn't an exclusive phenomena. I can engage in patriarchial culture at the same time I'm engaging in feminist culture, it leads to some interesting viewpoints...

There's a move to call certain things oppressions because of the distinction from illnesses or disabilities which should be fixed if they can be but often must be managed. Relatively speaking...

No it's not racist. I also did not just talk about quotas and college acceptance and hiring practices. You've missed a dramatic point.
How about this one
Real unemployment is about 10%

Jeremy Bentham's work was considered the formative documents of modern welfare economics. So not sure how you think that underpins modern capitalism which largely eschews welfare as a...

Consistently ignored? How do you figure? I've responded to almost every point in this thread. I've attempted to ask questions and expand upon reasoning to no avail. I can't be blamed if some can't...

I would assert it's origins come from Armchair warrior used to describe pejoratively people who are warlike but unwilling to participate in a war themselves. It became a pejorative term to describe...

No he doesn't.
1. The unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex.
2. recognition and...

Positive action? You mean affirmative action? That's not true and fundamentally at odds with the definition of affirmative action.
Actually it doesn't ignore how a statistical population...

Being discriminated from means separated from, yes discrimination can be good or bad. I discriminate for boys. I discriminate against girls. While they seem the same they are fundamentally different...

You really don't understand that bias has a mathematical definition right? That affirmative action is removing bias, it is not giving special treatment. By definition you're wrong. You're getting a...

You have yet to demonstrate that Affirmative Action results in POC being disproportionately hired or admitted. After 50 years you'd think you'd have some real data on that.
Hmm, 50 years of...

I would say no press is bad press when it comes to marketing and Trump knows marketing, he will make sure everyone knows who he is. The problem is that in politics, once you get they paying...

His ancestors were from Mexico, the area he mentioned is New Mexico. Unless he's asserting his family was immigrants to mexico too which he hasn't built a case for. Which is to say, New Spain ->...

Are you serious? I'm quite curious here. Moreso, I'm curious what you're implying. Is it dumb because it's obvious straight people don't have to come out or is it dumb because you don't understand...

An intelligent response, but I think...

That's the most recent of the entire planet. I'm only talking of the european branches and then the resulting ones which colonized the US. I don't recall the exact study it was in regards to a...
Theoretically they would be able to determine roughly the atmospheric components from the spectrography of star. That should give pretty good evidence of the composition, if we can then compare the...

Actually IIRC every european their colonialists share a common ancestor within the last 1,000 years. Because the founding population of the US was so tiny the same sort of thing appears here within...

Ok, a loss of 3 points 1.5 points of which is due to aging population. It should be noted that older individuals are participating MORE than they ever have had to previously.
.5 points are the...

Going through it slowly but I will address it all as best I can.
What the hell does that have to do with anything? You said I was advancing a with me or against me philosophy and to advance...

I would point out in many ways more obvious than some. They created the very systems of society with us in mind often.
It's interesting how we can blame groups of people for their criminality or...

I think a lot of people are forgetting that eventually assimilation occurs and these artificial or arbitrary distinctions disappear. What is celt vs gallic vs saxon vs norman etc has been absorbed...

The problem here is that emotional connotation is getting in the way of expression of content. I don't think obligation is the correct term because that envisions some sort of force. I don't think...

The funny thing here squiggle is the tone of your post when what we're arguing for isn't so much giving minorities special treatment somuch as stop harming them, to break down the artificial barriers...

I mean the CNN video shows the black people saying almost exactly what I was describing. "Don't generalize this :wub:." By the time bernie sanders got on stage the crowd was beyond listening. What...

And if O'Malley had said that in any sort of direct way even the extremists in the crowd would have hushed up. The problem is that many see exactly this sort of message as a support for the status...
July 19, 2015, 03:23 PM
I mean I think squiggle is pretty dead on when we consider the act of conning someone, but when we consider the effect of those we conned the argument breaks down. It's a bit worse if you punch a...

Responding all lives matters implies that they're responding to the problem as appropriate for everyone (which is another way of saying we'll maintain the status quo), black lives matter is a...
July 19, 2015, 01:36 PM
I wouldn't say there's a fullstop there because naturally we have (for whatever reason) grown to appreciate some discrimination over others. Individual determination, work ethic, determination,...

It's helpful to delve into the results section. Essentially speaking the author used 3 models to control for white discrimination.
The first model was based on white voter turn out on black...

Fair enough, skin color however should not be equated to genetic difference as when we compare the two interesting conclusions abound. I wouldn't say that the people were killed off or supplanted,...

You realize I don't care about cultural appropriation regardless, just saying you're comparing apples to oranges.
July 17, 2015, 11:59 AM
You realize that one is a ceremonial dress, and that the other is imagery created in the 1800's for an OPERA which has nothing to do with your scandanavian roots other than managing to be a poor...

Narco = drug
Corrido = music/ballad
Narcocorrido is a genre of northern mexican music evolving out of the mexican drug trade, immigration, corruption and etc. It's compared to 'gangster rap'...
