"Fuck this blog. This blog can eat shit, at least until next week."
...which is exactly how I'm feeling. However , if you have checked his latest post, you will see what I mean by "I can't compete". However, I guess I have to for the legions of fans. Here goes:
I Intellectually Beat The Shit out of a Racist Guy
Who has a blog I will not link to, since I don't enjoy linking to racists like that. Allow me to show a little of the back-and-forth.
racist guy: I guess my point is: A) Black people, you cannot get my sympathy. This is the land of opportunity. B)Just look at those black guys on MTV cribs with the talking ferraris and the jets with swimming pools in them. I mean, this 'oppressed' business is losing credibility, stop milking it.
me: was it intentional for your argument to so closely follow the arguements presented for segregation in Brown v. Board? they said, "look at all these wonderful black people who aren't poor! segregation obviously isnt hurting blacks because look at W.E.B. Dubois. a wonderful human being! surely segragation cant be that bad if someone like him comes out of it!"obviously, he could not actually admit to being racist, he had to find a way to shift the attention from his flawed logic.
racist guy: I guess you are right. There really is no sense in having ambitions. You're right. Blacks are just plain hopeless. Why even try. I guess the other 98% are just destined to be poor ghetto guys, and there's no reason to think otherwise. I love how you think.
I will never visit and/or mention that blog again. Just one last response:
Whew! Really dodged a bullet there. Instead of conceding you are in basic agreement with the people who oppose the descision of Brown v. Board, you claim to be helping blacks (a classic KKK strategy, btw) and saying I am being racist. I never said a person shouldn't have ambitions. My point is, the government sets people up to be poor. To fail. And a few outstanding people can get by, and get rich, but the vast majority can't. Not very many are born outsanding basketball players or businessmen, and those who don't unfortuanetly, have a lowered opportunities. For example, George W. Bush is accepted at Harvard and Yale for being rich, white, and the President's son, while the average poor man or woman does not have that advantage. The one thing I'm NOT saying is be a conformist and let it be that way. No. Just like the people in Brown v. Board didn't say "segregation damages people, but oh well, too bad". Change must occur. And people like you who ignore it and say the problem doesn't exist are the people who are doing everything in their power NOT to change and NOT to fix the problem. In other words, the problem's not "liberals who make people want to be poor" by giving them help when they really need it. The problem is the average citizen who elects leaders who don't want to do anything about the problem, and if anything, only worsen it. I'm out of this forever. Don't even bother responding. Have a good day.
P.S. - If you want to talk to the racist guy, his AIM is evilnursemask. He is always ready to blame "liberals" for anything and entretain you with stupid ideology like saying that MLK would be a Republican (even though he opposed Vietnam, which is what Bush II wants to re-create, and even though MLK wanted economic equality between races, something Bush II quitely opposes, and even though...you get the point).
