Civilization requires cooperation. In the very first instance you can’t raise a child without clean food to eat, pure water to drink, a safe house to live in, a doctor to mend their bodies, a boss who pays us for our work, a cop to keep us safe........... I could go on.
To suggest that we could live a good clean healthy life without those things, belies the truth.
So tell me Ex were my ancestors lives any worse than the black man ??
I'm not convinced that the prejudice your ancestors endured was the same as slavery..
Even when your ancestors saw the signs, No Irish Need Apply, could they live in their own house WITH their family? Yes.. Were they OWNED by a master who could break their family apart and SELL them to the highest bidder? No.. Did they have to worry that their children would be taken from them and RAPED at will by your boss? No. If they DID find a job, could they KEEP their own wages? Yes.
Need I go on?
What I'm saying is, let's stick to the topic in question
Hello again, A:
Somebody else brought up this topic, and you responded.. Certainly, I should be allowed to comment..
All I'm doing is quoting the facts.
Several times over the last year, I've given you credit for being SINCERE.. I said it again in this thread.. Plus, months ago, I asked a question aimed at you, entitled, If you BELIEVE it, is it RACISM?? You responded with insults..
Look.. I don't deny your sincerity or the veracity of your list.. I DO dispute your conclusion as to WHY black people aren't ON your list.. It essentially boils down to this:
You believe they're INFERIOR.
I believe that after having been ENSLAVED for a generation or two, the black man starts off with a HUGE disadvantage. When you're quoting facts, how come slavery isn't one of your facts? Certainly, if the accomplishments of the white man are integral to this conversation, the enslavement of the black man is every bit as integral.
Do you wanna call me a bongo now, or tell me I don't have brains enough to grasp your argument?? Or do you wanna DISCUSS it?
Your rights STOP when they trample on MY rights.. Evolution is SCIENCE - NOT religion... I have a RIGHT to have my children taught the TRUTH..
You DO know we fought our revolutionary war BECAUSE the king was foisting his religion on US.. You're DOING the same thing..
Let's be aware of the new rules and refrain from futile and gratuitous nastiness.
Hello again, A:
I don't believe I was being gratuitous and nasty... In fact, I was QUITE polite, indeed. I simply cited undeniable FACTS about you, just as you cite undeniable FACTS about black people..
Your "facts" draw you to make certain negative conclusions about black people.. That's text book racism.. How you can deny it is incomprehensible..
Nahhh. There’s a huge private market in gun sales that require no background check. Look at craigslist if you don’t believe me. Secondarily, when private sellers sell at gun shows, the people they sell guns to don’t require a background check. So there’s plenty of room for new controls.
