I suggest that when there is a history of "white" churches being burned by hateful organizations/individuals, then you have the right to joke about something like this. I strongly believe is the freedom of speech, but when it becomes hateful as yours' usually are, then I must protest in the your tone of speech.


When Blacks STOP Spewing Their HATE Speech...

Need Examples?

Didn't Think so.

I Have Billions of White Ancestors Dead because of Hate. I DON'T NEED PERMISSION for Speech or Tone of Your Choosing and Acceptence.

Yep
____________



Yep that was the way it was bro tribe against tribe , However not race against race , to far away bro , so most of your Billion White Ancestors killed each other MAAAATE !!!

A Billion? Seems a little out there even for Dull.

I suggest people stop taking his bait.

A neighbour just stopped by to say they had seen a black cat being carried off by a coyote 'a while ago'. Not sure of the time frame, and there are a few missing black cats around here...but it doesn't sound good. :(

This may be why there have been no responses to your posters beyond this Es. :(

It would explain why she appears to have vanished into thin air.

I just hope it was quick.

And When 'it' is Found Out, White DEM/Lib/Progressive Sympathizers to The 'Black' 'Experience, or Black Agitators are Behind These Crimes...

The 'K' Brothers and 'White' Supreme 'ists', would Know Better than to...

Yep.

This argument reminds me of when the Serbians accused the Bosnians of bombing themselves for sympathy.

Its a little insane and rather nasty.

If I could, I'd let Siyah run away again, maybe your Sauron will come back then, Es.

I don't think it works like that, Julie.

No Sauron. I have not found any sign that she has been hurt or attacked, she has just vanished into thin air. :(

I spent my birthday on Monday going around all the local animal shelters. On Tuesday I posted another load of posters around the neighbourhood.

Actually, its not even that. I work with a lot of women and I've literally never seen one cry. So the real question is, what is going on is Simon's workplace that reduces women to tears so often? The reality is, women rarely ever cry for no reason.

Sounds like there is a bad working environment that urgently needs to be addressed.

Well it could be both. If the work environment is hostile, its not unlikely that it affects men as well. Who are then denied a healthy emotional outlet because 'men don't cry'.

Agreed. Men and women get just as upset as each other, the acceptable ways of expressing it are just different. Unfortunately for men, crying is actually good for you as it rebalances the chemicals in your body and is cathartic.

I hope Simon is ok as it does sound like he is not working in a healthy place.

Hi from a state park along the Central Coast, where Eric and I are currently attending a family reunion. Last night when Eric and I were walking from one family member's cabin quarters down to ours, we saw two wild raccoons.

Dang! I didn't know that raccoons could be that skinny!!!

There isn't any raccoon lady to feed them!!!

I am sure she is working on it as we speak.

Doesn't take much, there are a few in my lab who burst into tears at the slightest provocation.
That's not sexist, it's a fact. They're the exception rather than the majority, but as it happens, we're exactly gender balanced at the moment (19 of each), and i've yet to see any of the men crying.
People need to be more thick-skinned.

Behold the toxic masculinity in action. Men don't cry as much because men are told they aren't really men if they do. Perhaps if men were allowed to experience emotions like actual human beings, they would cry a bit more often as well, and it wouldn't be a problem.

Actually, its not even that. I work with a lot of women and I've literally never seen one cry. So the real question is, what is going on is Simon's workplace that reduces women to tears so often? The reality is, women rarely ever cry for no reason.

[quote]Well, we passed a law against it. Problem solved. Just like speeding. Just like running red lights. Just like murder is illegal. Just like gun control. Just like cooking workers with tuna. Problem solved.

Which is the problem with gun 'control' legislation, you pass a law and OF COURSE everybody will obey it............except criminals. [/quote[
Is this an argument for saying we shouldn't have any laws? I actually don't get the logic here.

It is SUPREME idiocy to pass a law depriving a law abiding US citizen from possessing a means of defense against criminals armed with illegal guns. And now that the FBI is arresting 2 people a week here, pledged to ISIS and intent on killing innocents in their name, it is doubly idiotic to disarm the irregular militia. If you ask the 2nd Amendment ‘amenders’ what the Texas University Clock Tower sniper shootings, the McDonalds Massacre, Chucky Cheese, Columbine, Sandy Hook, the Aurora Theatre and most recently and most sadly Emmanuel A E M church, have in common they will virtually shout GUNS!

That's all well and good as long as you don't take notice of any facts. Most shootings are not done in self defence.

The other common fact they conveniently won’t consider in any discussion, dismissing it out of hand, is that every one of these heinous acts of violence occurred in what a tactical viewpoint would term a ‘soft’ target.

Another fact is that is has been shown that arming people in this situations does not improve the outcome and may even make it more likely for more people to get killed.

A gun free zone. No guns allowed. No chance of anyone resisting the murderous intent of the perpetrator.

Except most people aren't Jack Bauer and simply arming people doesn't mean they successfully resist people. What it does do is make it easier for these people to get hold of guns in the first place.

The people (and I mean the people of the entire world) need to stop being naive and take stock of what is happening everywhere. Mankind is and has always been engaged in a war. A war told in the Qur'an, the Bible, the Torah of Israel and the teachings of Buddha and every other religious leader and most philosophers.

America is pretty much living in cloud cuckoo land compared to the rest of the western world when it comes to guns. Bring your numbers of mass murders down to our levels, then you can lecture the rest of the world about being naive.
The war of Evil versus Good.

There is evil in the world and people who would do evil, to pretend to be safe because a law or rule has decreed that safety is deadly folly. ‘The map is not the territory’. He who's name will not be written by me, the Aurora Theater shooter's journal details how he ‘cased’ the airport and other venues before deciding that the Theatre would offer the best chance of his not facing return fire. This from the mind of an evil man.

Yes, and he was of course behaving in a totally rational and realistic way when he made his threat assessment.

We need to realize that ultimately each of us is responsible for our personal protection and for that of the ones we love from any threat. That is the intended reason for the 2nd Amendment. I have no problem with removing ALL GUNS from society worldwide. The cold fact is that will never happen, so deal with the actual situation.

This is a little bit crazy when you see the actual consequences of this ideology.

"The only thing that will stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." -Wayne La Pierre

Except facts again have shown that a) in reality this does not happen. b) the actual best way is to stop the bad guy getting the gun in the first place.

The comments were along the lines that women are nuisance in labs because they keep falling in love and cry when they are criticised (which does make me wonder how he talks to people if it makes them cry). I'd say that was pretty undermining and offensive to female scientists.

..and the GollyWog was always considered offensive by those it was mocking.
The original golliwog character (from 1895, The Adventures of Two Dutch Dolls and a Golliwogg) was a friendly and kind character, it wasn't until 1983 that the Greater London Council decided it was offensive.

I am pretty sure that black people have always found it pretty offensive...but I guess they don't count.

Would you take the same stance if these scientists were making racist jokes or wearing shirts with racist caricatures such as a GollyWog while making an important global announcement?

Depends on what exactly they said.
Obviously i can't respond to such generalised questions in any meaningful way.
If it was something like; "my lab has quite a few Arabic students, it can get hard to concentrate with them all shouting at each other", than that's low level and doesn't really merit a response.
Were it more like; "there's too many black people in here they make me sick to look at them", then that's more serious and warrants some action.
The difference is clear, the second statement is actively offensive, the first is merely one that someone might take offence to, which is not the same thing.
If a statement is not intended in a malicious way, then one should consider one's position carefully before kicking up too big a fuss about it.

As for the GollyWog issue, considering them offensive is a recent phenomenon. Should i have the right to clamour for a ban on leprechauns because they have red hair?

Oh well, that's this thread shot down then...
"I believe in the right not to be killed for something I say, but I don't believe that I have the right to insult whomever I please."

The "intolerance of intolerance" brigade chalks up another win

So you really think this guy should be in a position of authority over women with this attitude?

I think everyone concerned needs to damn well calm down and look at this with a cool head.
1. It was intended as a joke.
2. Some didn't take it that way.
3. He apologised.
That should be the end of it. Those who shout for his resignation and public lynching are just doing it out of misguided self-righteousness because it makes them feel important.
They belong in the same camp as Mary Whitehouse, "i don't like this, it must be banned!".
If they want to be taken seriously then this isn't the way to go about it.
For reference, see also shirtgate.

We had this discussion before, regarding the Black Members of My Family (Son-in-Law and Grandchildren), and the White/Black Family Members Reaction.

You, as always, continually deny your false and dark ascertains regarding other peoples motives and thinking.

I will not again, play your silly (at best) denial of yourself.

What is my agenda and what is my false allegation, Clyde?

How hard is it to answer that question?

You are hiding Your Agenda, behind a false allegation.

And that is the truth.

Tell me, Mr Former Policeman, what is my agenda? and what is my false allegation?

Mr. Former Soldier, Police Officer, College Professor. Presently helping our Disabled Veterans, to you.

That isn't really an answer is it?

What is my agenda and what is my false allegation?

Their allegations are extremely disgusting against the Rape Victims, I have had to comfort.

...

Did you comfort them by telling them they were better off dead? Or were you just thinking that?

Your false assertion of what I was referring to, and trying to explain, is extremely Offensive and Disgusting to The Victims.

As is usual with you, and those with the same Dark Agenda.

Your, and other's accusations: Disclose what they really are.

Keep it up. We do enjoy your 'Outing'.

I do wish you'd stop hiding behind rape victims. You have made your opinions quite clear on many occasions and then accuse people of "misrepresenting you" when they take you at your word.
