Funny, Off-Color, But Instructive Video


• • • WARNING: REALLY coarse, rude language in the linked video • • •


 

This guy’s really funny. It’s a bit difficult to listen to the video, because I’m not a fan of the really coarse language. It’s comedian Bill Burr talking about men and women.

Interesting quote from the video: “I gotta tell ya, I’m envious of women. I’m not saying your problems get solved, but at least they’re taken seriously.”

The point in linking to the video is to make this point: Ignore the fact that the guy’s comedy deals with relations between the sexes — we ought to be able to make these jokes — humor that points fun at a group — all the time, if with much more refined language(1) and with just as little hostility.

Why do I say that? Simple: take this guy’s video, and substitute in a woman making exactly the same kind of jokes, but directed at men, and you have what? Well, you have the majority of the content of today’s female comediennes! And no one’s at all upset about that.

Moreover, men laugh right along as the quick-witted women insult, degrade, sneer at and otherwise denigrate all men. Why do men laugh right along with the derision directed at them? Why aren’t they all offended, triggered, demonstrating in the streets, burning their boxers or briefs, demanding that all these women be fired and ostracized? Why? Simple: men know that a lot (not all) of it is simply true! And they’re not offended that someone else is pointing it out! And, they recognize that there are bad characteristics to which men are prone, and which men too frequently exhibit… because they’re men. 

Men are simply mature enough as a group that they’re able to hear uncomfortable truths about men in general without #1 taking it personally, or #2 pretending that all men, or they in particular, are somehow diminished by the jeering. In other words: men aren’t fragile.

It’s not immediately obvious from  the video, but Burr really loves women, and is willing to be honest with them. Honesty is, after all, one of the most significant, meaningful signs of true love.

If you’re a woman and you watch the video — and again, I warn you there’s some really rugged, rude language in it — you’ll see Burr points out that there are certain types of women — who deserve some scorn directed at them — and you’ll recognize also that he’s right.

I recognize one of those types of woman, because I married one some years back(2).

Here’s a link to the video:

Notes:


(1) One of the principal, underlying themes at our small but increasingly influential think tank is that the coarsening of America in general (not just in political discourse) is deeply damaging to us all.

(2) I overheard her once telling a friend, “I’m just waiting for 15 years so that my settlement will be bigger.” The day after our 15th wedding anniversary, I was served divorce papers at work. I pushed back and won all the things I thought were most important from the divorce. That left me with custody of my children (the #1 most important thing), while I paid her child support. Bottom line: the kids have lived with me for some years, while she’s been collecting child support from me! That’s Connecticut for you!

    1. Lol! First of all: incoherent, BW. PROOFREAD, why doncha?!?!?

      Second: Nope. I don’t “think being straight, white, Christian, male or straight, white Christian male is tough.”

      How is it that you’re always able to misunderstand what I write? I’m ready to accept the criticism that I’m not that great a writer, but sheesh, BW!

      The intent, as I said in the thought piece, was that we should be able to use this kind of humor for all people. That it’s socially acceptable only to dump on white men is just stupid… and bad for America.

      If I didn’t mention it, I should have said that I’m surprised that this chap is even able to find gigs; that he hasn’t been chased out of town by a bunch of leftist goons.

      Surely part of the reason for that is that he’s funny. And, of course, that a lot of what he says in his act is, obviously, true.

      So, no, I don’t think that straight, white, Christian men have it tough in America. I know that some of them do, and that, like any injustice, it should be eradicated.

      However, BW, the piece laments the loss of our freedom of speech, in favor of a ghoulish, leftist political correctness. By the way, you should research the term, “political correctness.” It was coined by one of history’s most ghastly mass murderers.

      Best,

  1. Well, it’s like you told me, you put this out on the internet, and if you didn’t want to be questioned, you shouldn’t have written it.

    Also, I was merely asking a question. There was no need for caps to imply that you’re annoyed or frustrated.

    Then, you said, we should be able to use this kind of humor for all people. Isn’t that the essence of socialism, everyone being treated the same, like how you believe the left does it and how you’re against it?

    Finally, freedom of speech doesn’t mean freedom of accountability. Don’t be prepared to say something a not expect a response of some kind, for as you have that freedom, so does everyone else.

    1. Thanks, BW… you at least made a point. You’re wrong, but you made a point. Simply saying, “You’re wrong” is not an argument.

      So, in order not simply to say, “You’re wrong,” here’s why you’re wrong.

      First: Did I use caps? I apologize. I was not annoyed. I’m guessing that I was writing in some haste. Along with my mates, I’ve been under rather violent attack for the past few weeks, and have had to keep my head low, meaning that I’ve been doing quite a lot in haste! 🙂

      Next: No, treating everyone with an equal, elevated, level of respect, and expecting that we be treated with the same respect — until, that is, we show that we don’t deserve it — is not Socialism, it’s etiquette.

      Socialism is, of course, an economic doctrine. Marx had nothing much to say about etiquette.

      You said: “Finally, freedom of speech doesn’t mean freedom of accountability. “ This is incorrect. Leftists say disgusting, horrible, ridiculous things all the time and are not held accountable. Samantha Bee, Bill Maher, Robert di Nero, you and the entire RGI, Ward Churchill, all come readily to mind. The list of leftists who have said things that no right-winger ever would have got away with is, of course, a great deal longer than that.

      You said: “Don’t be prepared to say something a (sic) not expect a response of some kind, for as you have that freedom, so does everyone else.”

      That was silly… what ever made you think that I write without hoping for responses? Seriously, BW… if you’re going to post something, make it something at least somewhat serious.

      Best,

  2. You were attacked? I’m sorry.

    Yep. Saying ‘you’re wrong’ alone is not an argument, but you love to say it often regardless, along with making the commenter feel small in some way when they write about something you disagree with. It’s not enough to simply disagree; you also insult in the beginning and sometimes throughout the response. However, when you agree, you’re as gentle as a lamb and as polite as a gentleman.

    I can dig up actual quotes if you want. Here’s one for example: “First of all: incoherent, BW. PROOFREAD, why doncha?!?!?”

    That’s part of your response. And seriously, starting a response in this manner would raise red flags to anyone reading it. You shot off immediately with a condescending line and just now, you responded, “Treating everyone with an equal, elevated, level of respect, and expecting that we be treated with the same respect.” But in most cases, such comments from you are unprovoked. Yet, you still wanted to start off in a demeaning tone and you talk about treating everyone with respect? Why not try it yourself?

    So basically, you want freedom of accountability as you think the left has none in what they say, but right-wingers can’t get away with the stuff they say?

    Like what?

    I think you write in hopes of responses, because I believe you want the attention. You want someone to listen and agree with you. And you get upset when people disagree or say something you disagree with as you come off with insults and never shy away from blaming the left as it seems to be your go-too.

    By the way, you never answered my question from another post. I asked if the left hasn’t done anything to you, why do you attack them or those you consider are leftists relentlessly on almost every post and every comment you make?

    I truly think you’re trying to avoid accountability in what you say. You will waste no time telling others wrong in the most insulting way possible without using swear words. Also, I think you’re sheltered within a right wing bubble that you refuse to leave under any circumstances. You seem to think it’s the right (no pun intended) idealogy over the left or what you consider to be liberalism, and you seem to do that without actually talking to outsiders as opposed to talking at them as if they’re lesser than you.

    I got 14 pages of your comments to show it.

    Only you seem to think otherwise. You seem to believe your thinking is the correct thinking. You think those who agree with your are intelligent. And most of all, you think black people who say what you want to hear are intelligent. When Kanye West said the things he said not long ago, you fell in love with him. If he said what I’ve written in my old blog, you would turn him into a villain.

    Like I said a couple of times, it’s not hard to figure out. I see it, and I see it coming whenever I respond. And I also know that you have to have the last word in any argument, online arguments in particular.

    Yes, I too would like to be friends with you, but given how you conduct yourself online, it’s best not to until you get yourself together. I would say more, but like I said, I doubt you would actually listen without preconceived judgments and an instant reaction to immediately reject them on the spot with more insults.

    1. You said:
      You were attacked? I’m sorry.

      My Response:
      Thanks.

      My Response:
      I insult only ideas. I never insult anyone who disagrees, unless he insults first. Dude: we’ve been over this. You got something very wrong in this selection: I’m impolite only with those who are impolite with me. You and your friends felt just fine about calling me every name in the book — racist, liar, crazy, stupid, ignorant, and the rest — but when I did the same back, it was all, “Oh no! You’re so ruuuuude! Sorry… when I’m attacked, I feel no qualms about playing by the Marquis of Queensbury rules. However, if something is stupid, I also have no qualms about calling it stupid. It’s called being honest, and it’s a sign of respect.

      Seriously, BW? You used that quote as an example of what a tough guy I am?!? The quote was jocular, playful, but with a message. You know I love you like a brother, BW, but you do need to proofread! Sinmple as that. Again, to tell you otherwise would be to lie to you. Why would I do that to you? It’s indecent.

      My Response:
      Lol! Dude: Are you kidding?!?!? Why would I even answer this? Two words: “Al Sharpton.” (times 1,000 other such racist leftists who have said ridiculous, outrageous garbage and are still on the air) *cough*Joy Reid *cough*Keith Olbermann *cough*Dan Rather *cough*Brian Williams, and on and on and on and on and on and on and on…

      And there’s no such thing as “freedom of accountability.” It’s just “accountability.” So, no, leftists are — generally, not always — not held accountable, while it takes very, very little — often it’s nothing more than unproven allegations! — for a Conservative to lose his livelihood.

      Now, if you’re trying to say, “freedom from accountability,” I’d accept that term, and it would make sense.

      First: you’re attempting to mind-read. You should never, ever, ever, not ever do that. People do not have that super power. Second: even if you were right,
      that would not absolve you of the responsibility to provide a substantive response. 🙂 Nothing bothers me less than someone else disagreement with me. love disagreement! It’s how I got to where I am: by being wrong many, many times, and by being sufficiently open-minded to admit it, and to grow from it. And, as you know, I never — or almost never, and never without provocation — insulted a person. Their comment? Sure: to call a stupid comment stupid is the morally right thing to do.

      Again, you’re trying to mind read. Firstly, you can’t, and secondly, my motives are unimportant as it pertains to what I say. And, again, I insult only things… comments. Unless, of course, people prove worthy of being insulted, by insulting me first. Then I let ’em have it, and they have no moral right to whine about it.

      Ummmmm… okay. Make sure you point out who insulted whom first. 🙂 You’ll find out that in all cases I didn’t start the exchange of insults. BW: I tend to play by the rules of the house. I won’t disarm myself, but I won’t use either dirty words or swear words. However, if you allow insults in your blog — as you allowed your friends to attack me — then, again, you have no moral right to complain when I engage in the same insults you yourself allow!

      My Response:
      Lol! You’re mind-reading again. All the phrases above that are mind-reading are, therefore, illegitimate, and I’ll ignore them. As to Kanye West, I’m not really a fan, but he did do the nation a great service by pointing out in dramatic fashion that the Left will not stand for black people thinking for themselves. For that great service, I’m very grateful to Kanye.

      As far as who is intelligent among black people is concerned, I think that anyone who can make an intelligent, coherent argument, regardless of color has the capacity to be intelligent. However, intelligence, like skill in a sport, is a choice. It requires taking the unfulfilled capacity you have, and working hard to fashion it into intelligence… or realized capacity.

      Many, generally leftists, are intellectually lazy and choose not to exercise their mental capacity. As a result, they remain stupid. all while the rest of the leftish herd is praising them for their brilliance, depth and wisdom. The most famous morons out there, whom the lazy Left consider intellectual giants: John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama. These three are the idiots over whom the lazy Left — particularly in the media — most fawned and drooled.

      Uhhhhh… in the paragraph just a couple paragraphs ahead of this one, you accused me of not responding to you! In other words: of letting you have the last word! You should make up your mind. 🙂 I do know what you’re saying, though. My policy is to respond to everyone. If you write a post to me, then I respond to you. That’s just courtesy.

      Okay. I’ll wait ’til you’ve decided that I’ve got myself together. 🙂 As for preconceived judgments, we all do that. It’s called arguing from our own point-of-view. You do it too. It’s also called: being honest. I hope that you’ll be honest with me. And, I hope that you’ll try to come up with a substantive argument against my premise in the original post, and not just recriminations about how you think I express myself online. 🙂

      Dude: you know you like me… you just need to admit it to yourself. 🙂 (There: that’s three smiley faces in one paragraph! What’s not to like?!?)

  3. With all due respect, your narcissism is limitless and your shields are incredibly thick.

    Let me respond by saying this:

    -You may think your message was ‘jocular and playful’, but it didn’t read that way. What you don’t want to understand is that what you intend is not always how it’s read.

    -Just to point this out, Al Sharpton is not our “shepherd” and neither is Jesse Jackson nor any other black civil rights leader you and those who think like you believe are our only “black leaders”.

    -You say there’s no such thing as freedom of accountability, but you practice it all the time. You don’t seem to want to take a sliver of any responsibility for anything you say that has, more or less, frustrated or offended others whether you intended to do so or not. You seem to prefer blaming others for their reactions toward you when you write something that have been problematic to someone.

    -And finally, this old mind-reading defense isn’t new, nor is it a good defense. Let me explain. Other people have met this kind of response from others, especially from those who demand proof of oppression against any group that isn’t straight, white and/or male. Here’s an excerpt from an article that explains this:

    Whatever proof you show — whether it is evidence to demonstrate the presence of systemic racism or social racism; implicit racism or explicit racism; conscious racism or unconscious racism — will never be enough. They will employ every move-the-goal-post, bait-and-switch, logical-fallacy, false-equivalence, appeal-to-the-absurd, argumentum-ad-dictionarium, beyond-a-shadow-of-a-doubt, bar-raising, unrealistic-expectation, persnickety-pseudo-science tactic at their disposal to deny that what you’ve brought forth is solid and correct — or even mildly reasonable. And the gag is that if you don’t bring it forth, they’ll accuse you of being The Real Racist. They think this is the perfect no-win situation in which to place you.

    They will ask you if you can read the minds of white people. Yes. That’s their favorite one. That’s their standard of proof. The only way you will be able to prove racism to these white folks is if you’re telepathic. And even then, they’d question the accuracy of your telepathic abilities and will request a white telepath to verify your knowledge — and they will only believe the white telepath if they disagree with you and agree with them. Anything to avoid having to confront and admit that racism exists, that they benefit from it, and often participate in and perpetuate it.

    Knowing you, you’ll say how you’re a black woman and that this doesn’t apply to you. I’m going to be blunt here. Don’t even try it. Don’t even think about it. Even if you are, you still think like a white person and that’s a contradiction to being a self-proclaimed “free-thinker” just in case you believe you are.

    Maybe you accuse me of reading your mind, because what I’ve read was true and you didn’t want it exposed. Maybe I know you more than you would like me to know you. Just an thought.

    And finally:

    Beyond being a sign of intellectual laziness, psychological ineptitude, and a gross exploitation of unearned authority and privilege, it’s emotionally sophomoric and an insidious and pathological deflection strategy designed to protect white people from encountering any reality that doesn’t make them feel like the most special and innocent snowflakes at the dead center of the alabaster and crystalline universe.

    That seems to sum you up perfectly. Of course, you can’t and refuse to see that as your egotism prevents you from consider that maybe, just maybe you’re part of the problem.

    I didn’t attempt to prove my case as extensive as you would like just to entertain you, because I know everything as described in the article will happen on cue. Again, you’re not the only one who’s done this. And no, this is not because of some intellectual superiority, competence to the “truth” or even that they know how to proofread. There’s is NOTHING about this that’s genuine, a sign of intellectual prowess or superiority.

    It’s just a case of promoting an ideology over actual morality, facts, honesty and people’s lives.

    Forgive me for my bluntness, but that’s how I and every reasonably sane and rational person would see it.

  4. Well, well, well, BW. Thanks for pouring out your feelings here! Lots to digest, and many, many things that are just plain wrong. Some things that, even if right, are irrelevant, and I’ll try to locate some things that are good in the mix. So, in order to reply without simply telling you that you’re wrong, here’s the rest:
    – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * – * –
    You said:

    My Response:
    Okay…whatever. Irrelevant. Even if it were true, which you’d have no way of knowing, that wouldn’t change one iota the truth — or not — of what I say. If you have an argument to make, make it, Dude. Your distaste for me is not an argument.

    My Response:
    Dude: when I said, “PROOFREAD, why doncha!” (or something like that) the “why doncha” made it jocular and cheerful. However, I’m going to take your confession that you suffer from depression and move our interactions in another direction. BW: I care for you. A lot. I hope that you have only happiness and laughter and love in your life, and I suspect that you don’t, and I’m truly sorry about that. So, quick thing: maybe this kind of back and forth is not what you should engage in. I’m not going to lie to you and pretend that everything you say is true, but at the same time, I don’t want to add to any sadness in your life. So, I’ll reply to this, and that should be the end of it as far as arguments between us is concerned. In the future, you can feel free to reply, and even to disagree vehemently, but I won’t engage you except to say that I disagree.

    My Response:
    Okay, but they’re leftists who have gotten clean away with cr*p that no Conservative could ever do or say and still have a career… much less a career that thrives. I don’t believe that they are the “only black leaders,” just the most prominent and famous, so they serve as good examples. Again, please never again try to tell me what I believe. I’ll tell you that. Okay? Good.

You seem to prefer blaming others for their reactions toward you when you write something that have been problematic to someone.

    My Response:
    BW: the term “freedom of accountability” doesn’t mean anything. One more quick thing: those who are offended by words on a screen (or a paper) need to grow a hide. So, no, if my words hurt someone, that is his or her fault, not mine. As you indicated, I will not take responsibility for something that is not my responsibility. BW: please read this well: words cannot hurt you. Especially my words, since you’ve told me yourself — many times — that you have no regard for my thinking. You should read that little phrase — words cannot hurt you — over and over and over and over and over and over again. Then read it again. When I write something that is “problematic to someone,” that’s his fault. Every time and always.

    Oh, and again, “freedom of accountability” doesn’t mean anything. Do you mean “freedom from accountablility?” If so, that’s what the Left wants. And gets.

    My Response:
    I don’t have a “mind-reading defense.” I’m just telling you not to pretend that you can do it. You can’t. You’re always trying to tell me what I believe, what I’m thinking, what my character is, what I want, feel, etc. If you were to get rid of all that dross from your writing, you’d actually get to the point, and you’d write much better, more substantive responses. The reason: you wouldn’t be able to obfuscate or deflect with your constant, irrelevant attempts to insult who I am.

    And, Dude, if you’re going to claim you’re oppressed, then yes, you do actually have to prove it. For years the dissidents in the Soviet Union weren’t believed about the oppression they were undergoing there. Because the Soviet authorities always denied it, and there were sufficeint leftists in America to deny it so that average Americans didn’t know what to think. So, the dissidents proved it. And they produced such an overwhelming amount of undeniable, concrete proof that the world was compelled to believe them. Finally. So, yeah…. you have to prove you’re oppressed. Especially if you’re going to insist that I’m oppressing you… as you like to do. 🙂

    Whatever proof you show—whether it is evidence to demonstrate the presence of systemic racism or social racism; implicit racism or explicit racism; conscious racism or unconscious racism—will never be enough. They will employ every move-the-goal-post, bait-and-switch, logical-fallacy, false-equivalence, appeal-to-the-absurd, argumentum-ad-dictionarium, beyond-a-shadow-of-a-doubt, bar-raising, unrealistic-expectation, persnickety-pseudo-science tactic at their disposal to deny that what you’ve brought forth is solid and correct—or even mildly reasonable. And the gag is that if you don’t bring it forth, they’ll accuse you of being The Real Racist. They think this is the perfect no-win situation in which to place you.
    My Response:
    Lol! That sounds like Abagond. It was a whiny, defensive nonsense paragraph. It’s a lot of words to say little or nothing. Again, if your argument is solid, then there isn’t a person in the world who can do any of those things to it. Simple as that.

    I can, however, prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that there’s no “systemic racism” in America. Ready? Dude: read the words. “Systemic racism.” If there is such a thing, then you can point to systems that exist, that somehow have structures, rules, policies and regulations that exclude any people because of their race. And, I’m sorry to point out to you that the only such rules, regulations, policies, etc. that exist are those in academia, Hollywood, industry and elsewhere that overtly exclude asian and white Americans. In all other cases, the exclusion of non-whites from any organization whatsoever is explicitly illegal.

    As far as “unconscious racism” is concerned, this involves mind-reading again, and no one has that ability. As far as “conscious racism” is concerned, there are laws against people actually acting on conscious racism, so it’s not a threat to anyone.

    “Social racism?” A nonsense term that means only: “racism.” Racism is social, by definition. Someone wasn’t thinking when he typed that term. it’s like saying “big tallness.”

    “Implicit racism?” Again: no one can actually show evidence that there’s even any such thing… it’s only guessing. Worse: by definition, it’s entirely subjective, completely, 100% open to interpretation. Therefore, it’s a term designed to be abused by any whiner, sniveling wretch, or race hustler out there.

    “Explicit racism?” Just a state of mind, and, of of course, it’s completely and utterly against the law to act on it. None of what I’ve just said is even in the slightest controversial.

    Sorry, Dude, racism’s just not a big problem for black Americans anymore. Sasaaaayyyy… I wonder where I’ve heard that before!

    You said:
    They will ask you if you can read the minds of white people. Yes. That’s their favorite one. That’s their standard of proof. The only way you will be able to prove racism to these white folks is if you’re telepathic. And even then, they’d question the accuracy of your telepathic abilities and will request a white telepath to verify your knowledge—and they will only believe the white telepath if they disagree with you and agree with them. Anything to avoid having to confront and admit that racism exists, that they benefit from it, and often participate in and perpetuate it.
    My Response:
    Hmmm… a bunch here. All of it really stupid. Let’s do it with bullet points.
    • No, I’ll tell you that you can’t read the minds of white people. Because you can’t.
    • No, mind-reading is neither anyone’s “favorite,” nor anyone’s “standard of proof.” It’s your silly habit, and I’ve long been tired of reminding you that you can’t do it. Yet, you constantly do it. it’s actually annoying to have to remind you of it constantly.
    • The passage about the “white telepath” is gibberish, and as you know, I’ve never even hinted at such a thing.
    • The part about “racism existing” is just stupid. I’ve, of course, never ever, not even once, denied that racism exists. Again, dude, if you’re going to argue at least try not to put in the totally moronic! You’ve been flogging this “racism doesn’t exist” strawman for years now. It’s kinda funny.
    • And, last but not least, as you know, I’ve never, ever, not once ever benefited from, participated in, or perpetuated racism of any kind.

    That paragraph in your response was so stomach-turningly stupid that I hope and pray that you didn’t write it, and were merely quoting some other half-wit, without having read the steaming mess.

    Knowing you, you’ll say how you’re a black woman and that this doesn’t apply to you. I’m going to be blunt here. Don’t even try it. Don’t even think about it. Even if you are, you still think like a white person and that’s a contradiction to being a self-proclaimed “free-thinker” just in case you believe you are.
    My Response:
    Lol! This is funny! What if I am a black woman?!? Do you really want me to lie to you? Sorry, I won’t. And, furthermore, I won’t tell you what my race or sex or age is. Why? Because it has no bearing on the meaning of the words you’re reading. They stand on their own. I’ll be blunt here. You can try to tell me what to say, but I’m still going to say exactly I want to. I encourage you to do the same. I don’t “think like a white person.” I think like a person. Besides, how can you pretend to know how white people think? Can you imagine what you’d say if I were to tell you what black people think? You’d say (I hope) something like, “Hey! Black people aren’t monolithic! We all think, feel and know differently! How dare you imply that we don’t!” Oh, that’s right… you already said that to me in the past. So, I’ll allow you to retract the nonsensical phrase that reads, “Even if you are, you still think like a white person and that’s a contradiction to being a self-proclaimed “free-thinker” just in case you believe you are.” That’s a mess of a phrase. Wrong on so many levels! After all, who are you to define what a “free thinker” is?

    Maybe you accuse me of reading your mind, because what I’ve read was true and you didn’t want it exposed. Maybe I know you more than you would like me to know you. Just an thought.
    My Response:
    Okay, but maybe not too. Why engage in useless, unprovable speculation? There’s no point. And, most importantly, even if you were right, it has no bearing whatsoever on whether or not my words are correct. The sooner you realize that, the better off you’ll be. Attacks on someone’s character are not an argument.

    Beyond being a sign of intellectual laziness, psychological ineptitude, and a gross exploitation of unearned authority and privilege, it’s emotionally sophomoric and an insidious and pathological deflection strategy designed to protect white people from encountering any reality that doesn’t make them feel like the most special and innocent snowflakes at the dead center of the alabaster and crystalline universe.
    My Response:
    Wow! Let’s try to sort through all the fluff and silliness of this paragraph! First: there’s no such thing as “psychological ineptitude.” Did you mean “mental ineptitude?” Please try to stay coherent. Second: I’m obviously not “intellectually lazy.” I make sure to reply to you comprehensively. So, not only am I not intellectually lazy, I’m courteous too. Next: “gross exploitation of unearned authority and privilege” doesn’t mean anything. It sounds a lot like you trying way too hard to sound smart. You shouldn’t do that. Next: “emotionally sophomoric” means nothing. Did you mean “emotionally immature?” Next: Assuming you meant: “emotionally immature,” then the phrase “…emotionally immature and an insidious and pathological deflection strategy designed to protect white people from encountering any reality that doesn’t make them feel like the most special and innocent snowflakes at the dead center of the alabaster and crystalline universe.” is readable… but needlessly grandiloquent and… really stupid. Obviously, no one’s “trying to protect” white people from anything. The country as a whole has now spent generations trying to convince white people of just how rotten they are. 🙂 And, again, the entire phrase — with the “most special and innocent snowflakes at the dead center of the alabaster and crystalline universe” sounds a whole lot like someone trying way, way too hard to sound smart. Really, you should stop it. Finally, that whole mess of a sentence is nothing more than a bunch of mind-reading again. You can’t do it, so don’t even try. And, yet again, attacking someone’s character is not an argument. Dude: do you learn anything?

    My Response:
    Lol! Nothing more than mind-reading. Again, cut it out. You can’t do it. You’ve summed up nothing, because all your “summing up” is based on nothing more than useless speculation, otherwise known as: “mind-reading.” 🙂 Seriously… don’t do it anymore.

Again, you’re not the only one who’s done this. And no, this is not because of some intellectual superiority, competence to the “truth” or even that they know how to proofread. There’s is NOTHING about this that’s genuine, a sign of intellectual prowess or superiority.

    My Response:
    You didn’t try to “prove” any case! You whined about mot liking how I express myself. The rest of the paragraph is incoherent. Again, dude, please proofread. (Better? 🙂 )

    It’s just a case of promoting an ideology over actual morality, facts, honesty and people’s lives.

    Forgive me for my bluntness, but that’s how I and every reasonably sane and rational person would see it.

    My Response:
    Ummmm… nope. I promote an ideology, but it’s because it’s the thing that will improve people’s lives. There’s no other legitimate reason to promote an ideology. Obviously. And, I’m the one who presents facts, evidence, thought exercises, logic, reason. Dude… you’ve been presenting… your feelings about how I express myself. And you’ve been trying to make the case that what I say is less important than how I say it. That’s just as ridiculous and silly as it can be.

    You talk about “reasonably sane and rational persons,” which is just another attack on my character — meaning on my sanity and ability to be rational. As I’ve mentioned many times, that’s not an argument. You do realize, don’t you, that if you were to cut out all the attacks on my character, the whining about how I express myself and the mind-reading, you wouldn’t have any post left?

    As I mentioned above, I won’t be providing any long responses anymore. This post of yours had nothing of substance in it, and I don’t want to contribute to what you say is your depression. BW: again, I care about you, but you put such cr*p out there in response to what I write. I’ve told you that, and I don’t need to tell you anymore. You can choose to take it and run with it, or you can continue to wallow in the morass of silly thoughts that someone’s words can hurt you. They can’t. Not unless you allow them to. I’m willing to bet that if you were to eliminate from your thinking all the times you allowed yourself to be hurt by what someone else said, you’d stop being a racist. I don’t know that, but I wouldn’t be surprised. More to the point, I’m figuring that if all black racists, and black supremacists were to eliminate from their thinking any time they were responsible for the pain they felt at the words from someone else, then the rest of the racism in America would nearly entirely disappear. After all, the most racist, supremacist group in America today is: black Americans. You don’t have to be one of them. You can choose to think for yourself. Just as Kanye suggested you do. Think about it. Think for yourself for once. Surprise me.

    1. And all this right there is exactly why black people with different views can’t talk to someone like you. All you’re doing is making the case stronger that you’re impossible to talk to let alone have a mature argument with. Seriously, are you still in high school or something?

      You keep bellowing to proofread, but you’re the one misunderstanding and misinterpreting the stances of myself and other black bloggers. You depict us as anti-white. Speaking for myself, I know I’m not. We’re anti-white racism which you seem to have a problem with and declare us as being the real racists as mentioned in the post I excerpted from.

      We explained it and proven it, but you don’t want to consider it. Again, you’re doing what the post suggests and don’t see how that is a problem, or at least pretending not to know why or just refusing to think about it.

      You can’t be a part of the conversation if you decide not to care about knowing the situation. All it shows me is that you’re far removed from the experiences of black Americans and that you refuse to let down your shield to listen in favor of something you consider more important. From what I’ve seen, it’s your obsessive hatred of liberals and love for your brand of conservatism that seems to be take precedence above the lives of black Americans.

      If you’re such a “free thinker”, why is your thinking preventing you from growing and why is that kind of thinking been around for years and continues to overt any form of progress? In my opinion, you’re not a free thinker, because I don’t see any form of thought into your responses.

        My Response:
        You’re mind-reading again. You can’t tell me what I want, and don’t want. 🙂 And, don’t forget: You haven’t proven anything, because I prove things… you, though, complain about how I express myself. You might have forgotten that.

        My Response:
        Again, I’ll have to interpret this last passage, because you didn’t proofread. So, here goes: You don’t “see any thought into my responses,” because you choose not to. I’m figuring that you don’t like the fact that I kind of mop up the floor with you each time we argue. I could be wrong, though. To show you my difficulty, the phrase “overt any form of progress” doesn’t mean anything. “Overt” is not a verb. Were you trying to say “subvert?” Anyway, your assessment that I’m not a free thinker, and that I’m not growing is your subjective opinion. You’re wrong, but I’m okay with your having the opinion. 🙂

        1. You can repeat how I’m trying to read your mind all you want. That doesn’t make it true no matter how many times you say it. Besides, I told you that it’s not the case, Based on your comments and blog, you seem to have a bloated ego in which no disagreement is allowed. Maybe that’s why you back Trump so much as you and him are a lot alike in that regard.

          You think you know, but it’s obvious that you don’t and don’t want to know.

    You said. “The country as a whole has now spent generations trying to convince white people of just how rotten they are.”

    1. White Americans, ever since they came to these lands, have done unspeakable horrors against people of color here. You can’t deny that history. Of course, not all are guilty. But POC have the right to speak out against it and resist the racism inflicted upon them that causes them harm.

    2. If you think that being called evil is, in away way, equivalent to what POC have been through in this land, you’re sadly mistaken.

    3. You seem busy going after black people who call out racism while saying nothing at all about the actual racists. So, what does that make you?

    4. With all those listed, maybe it’s time someone questions your character, because anyone can see this and see how you got issues and do nothing but peddle in hate and fear. Neither of those are empowering.

      My Response:
      Close. Scope, please. At this point, you’re complaining about sins that are long in the past. If you’re talking about the unspeakable (slavery), then you’re talking about sins that had stopped long before your great-grandfather was even born. If you’re talking about the unacceptable (Jim Crow, segregation, voting irregularities), then you’re talking about things that disappeared three generations ago. White people fought a war to abolish slavery, the first race to do that in the history of the world. Whites then evolved out of doing a bunch of entirely unacceptable and cruel things, so that now they’ve been trying to atone for their past for more than three generations. So, what is the legacy of white people in America? Easy: it’s a mixed bag. Now, at this point in history, they’re the most generous, most tolerant, least racist group on the planet. There are even some countries (Japan, for example) who don’t view racism as a bad thing at all! Is there still racism against black people? Sure. There’s a lot more racism on the part of black Americans today, though. And, it has arrived at the point where black Americans have more access to opportunities for success than whites, Asians and Hispanics. Sorry, all those things are simply true.

      When you say I “do nothing but peddle in hate and fear,” you’re just making things up, throwing the usual leftish insults against the wall, hoping it’ll shut me up as it usually does to Conservatives. Yep. Mind-reading on my part… but there’s no other reason to fabricate flapdoodle like that. I’m not concerned about how empowering, or not, things that I don’t do are. 🙂
