ZeroCorpse: It's not about race. It's about greed and ignorance.


Don't tell the guys who call everyone a racist.

You've hit the nail right on the head.

Rodeodoc: feckingmorons: So you think it is OK that our elected officials aren't doing enough to stop the violence in our black communities?

Is there some reason it's the responsibility of government to stop the violence in black communities?  Are you suggesting black people lack the desire, motivation, or skill sets to stop murdering each other in their own communities.  Are you suggesting that black people have lived off government largesse for so long they are incapable of independent thought or action without some Uncle Tom taking them by the hand? There is no room for such racist thought, sir.


my favorite one of the thread so far

feckingmorons: Don't epidemiologist use race when compiling statistics about disease, and suicide, and homicides? Don't social scientists use race and gender when predicting where you're more likely to be a victim of a violent crime.


Did you miss the part where I explained quite explicitly that, "there's nothing wrong with recognizing that certain behaviors or offenses are overwhelmingly perpetrated by people of one particular demographic group?"

Did you?

That isn't my issue.  My issue is the temptation of the racist to extend demographically isolated incidents to all people of the same demographic.  As I said, there is NO reason to "joke" that the president will plant a watermelon patch or modify presidential vehicles with spinners/large diameter wheels/etc. other than naked racism.

feckingmorons: We could stop these senseless shootings, assaults, fights and riots if we simply outlawed the timed release of these shoes. They should be announced by the manufacturer as being out 'sometime in March" or whatever month it is and the various stores should be able to sell them as soon as they are delivered. Don't let the stores advertise their availability until they are truly on the shelf so no one lines up to get them.

They're shooting people over athletic shoes. We could control this with common sense laws.


If they are not shooting each other in line they will shoot each other in the street. This is a cultural problem, not a gun problem not a shoe problem. As long as they have a culture of violence and greed and no responsibility this kind of stuff will happen. 

I would bet that an infinite number of Amish waiting in line for an infinite period of time would not produce a shooting over a pair of basket ball shoes.
 
2013-03-16 10:09:14 PM
In case everyone hasn't figured it out now shoe laws are as absurd as banning high capacity magazines or guns that look scary and are called assault weapons.

Criminals will be criminals, there is little we can do about that. Sure, they should probably hold down the hype for these stupid shoes, but even if they took waiting lists some loser would probably shoot the guy with the list and add his name to the top.

You'll always see a few people on Fark who live for the opportunity to call someone a racist. Yet they're the ones posting the racist pictures.

The people that said criminals - of every race- are the problem are spot on. We don't need more laws to stop crime, we just need to put the criminals in jail and enforce the existing laws. We don't need new gun laws or new shoe laws. We have plenty of laws, and too many criminals We need to use the laws we have to reduce the criminals we have.

Calling everyone racist is not a solution, it just makes the hand wringers feel better.

feckingmorons: eraser8: feckingmorons: Why are you harping on this, why do you want people to find racism.

It isn't my place to either encourage or discourage people from looking for racism.  But, YOU implied something about my facility for finding these images.  YOU were the one who asked, "Why can you find these racist images so quickly? Are they on your hard drive? "

I offered my procedure to thread as a whole to prove that local storage of these images isn't necessary.  Are you now willing to admit that these images can be found exceedingly quickly, without art?  Are you willing to admit that simple searches bring return these images in large numbers?

So your point that racist images can quickly be found on the Internet because you do it frequently and time it with a stopwatch is what exactly?

All I can gather is that you like looking at racist images. I'm sure you'll find plenty, but remember you're judge by the company you keep.



Dude, I have been reading your posts and they are awesome.  I'm giving you 10/10 just because you kept it up so long.  Bravo!
 
2013-03-16 10:12:44 PM

eraser8: feckingmorons: You're the one with a 'procedure' to find racist images, not anyone else in this thread (as far as I know) .

It's a one step procedure: GIS "Obama watermelon patch" or "Obama spinners" or "Obama witch doctor."

The "procedure" was only shared to prove your hypothesis (about my keeping these images locally) was wrong.

feckingmorons: Don't you understand what false concern is? You pretend to be concerned about people on Fark being racist

You really misunderstood my point.

feckingmorons: I don't think you're truly concerned, but embarrassed or guilty that you enjoy reading racist things and looking at racist pictures.

So, the only way to not be racist is to ignore racism?  I've always thought the Republicans making that argument were a bit nutty; but, you've explained their position quite well: they're insane. I mean, by your reasoning, ignoring murderers will end murder.


I read enough.
You're a big time racist.

Look, I think you're a handwringer who looks to call people racists simply because you enjoy it. You guys never call a spade a spade or a criminal a criminal you blame everyone else. You're trying to absolve the gunman by calling us racists.

Let me clear it up for you, the Bureau of Justice Statistics shows that the majority of the violent crimes in this country are committed by black men. Does that mean every black man commits a violent crime, no of course not. Nobody here suggested that it did. That doesn't stop you from labeling everyone a racist though.

Take off your rose colored glasses and face reality.

I'm not sure whether you understand the point being argued here.

I was defending myself against a charge that, because it was so easy for me to find racist imagery, I MUST have kept these images locally on my computer.

My point was to show that saving such images is completely unnecessary.  A simple GIS search will return them in droves.

feckingmorons: GAT_00: eraser8: I mean, other than abject racism, why would anyone believe that President Obama was likely to modify presidential vehicles with "spinners" or oversize wheels or such?

There is no other reason.

Other than you two, I don't think anyone thinks that our president would do such a thing. Why do you have pictures like that, does it excite you to look at them and be racist in private, while putting on the concerned liberal face in public?

Like Chris Matthews bringing up the birther nonsense asking why people keep talking about it when he is the only one talking about it. You seem intent to paint everyone as racists. I think it might be because you feel guilty for being a racist.

So you think it is OK that our elected officials aren't doing enough to stop the violence in our black communities?

Oh, you don't say the word you do it by implication with comments like "Why is that important to you?" and obliqely talking about Republican/racist jokes about the president. You don't directly call anyone a racist, you just imply that they are or imply that if they are Republican they are.

You fall back on plausible deniability. We know. We understand. You don't want to actually take a stand on anything because your values shift in the wind. You're edgy and trendy, or at least want to appear so.
