    No he doesn't.

    Discrimination.
    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...
  2. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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...
  3. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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...
  4. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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...
  5. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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...
  6. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    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...
  7. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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 ->...
  8. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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...

  10. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    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...

    Re: kepler 452b

    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...
  12. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    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...
  13. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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...
  14. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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...
  15. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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...
  16. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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...
  17. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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...
  18. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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...
  19. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    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...
  20. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    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...
  21. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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...
  22. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    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...
  23. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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,...
  24. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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...
  25. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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,...
  26. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    You realize I don't care about cultural appropriation regardless, just saying you're comparing apples to oranges.
  27. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    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...

    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'...
  29. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    That's not what I'm suggesting however. I'm suggesting awareness of bias as the first step to addressing the underlying issue which legislation alone has failed to rectify (or rather the political...
  30. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    Ok, so normal distribution of population is assumed, we must assume this because that's exactly what a normal distribution is there for, it describes a probabilistic outcome with a gradient of...
  31. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    As far as taking me seriously I don't really mind either way, I'm not arguing you accept my position from a position of authority or expertise.

    The big 3 news organizations are: ABC, CBS and NBC....
  32. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    That’s fair, however I’m not talking about believing me based on my expertise or credibility, I’d rather let the facts speak for that.



    Woah. That’s an extreme claim. Proof? The notion of...

    Re: Same Sex Marriage legal in all 50 US states!

    There's a difference between considering something valid and wanting a behavior perceived as valid. The necessity of perceiving them as valid was a first step towards changing the law which did not...
  36. Re: Charleston Church Shooting - Racism Inspired Murders

    You're using arrest figures I was not. I was using specifically black on white crime and white on black crime. It's a fact that media reports disproportionately more black on white crime than they...

    Re: Same Sex Marriage legal in all 50 US states!

    It's not pointless, you've made a value call and deemed it worthless to you. Likely because you don't value discussion but rather a chance to promote your odd views. You claim not to oppose something...
