Ker_Thwap: error 303: It's awesome that as one of the largest and most diverse nations that has ever existed we let the actions of 0.00004% of the population define the bahvioral characteristics of a certain group of people. It makes thigns so much easier and gives us a chance to feel better about ourselves by giving us some one to feel superior to.

The internet's entire response to this event has been all about people trying to force the facts into their own little extremist worldviews.  Left, right, it's all about making the world make sense without actually examining our own beliefs.


Agreed. Unforunate but not unsurprising. Hell, I'm just trying to find a way to feel morally superior to both sides.

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all ... The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic ... There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Mentat: Can we expect the same outrage for a white woman knocking down a 73 year old man for singing a tribute to Trayvon?

Why yes, there is video.


Sure, she should do a few months in prison.  I also like that it appears she took a nice ass-kicking before she was arrested.

Can we get back to talking about the people in Oakland that hit the waiter in the head with a hammer while he was protecting his restaurant?  Or the animals robbing the Wal-Mart in L.A.?

super_grass: Civil_War2_Time: ZeroCorpse: Having lived in Lansing, I've watched hordes of lily-white middle-class college students riot and trash their own town over something as stupid as a football game, so I really don't buy the whole idea that this is a racial tendency. It's herd mentality. It's mob mentality. People (mostly you filthy extroverts) get in big crowds, and suddenly you surrender the ability to think for yourself and you do whatever the crowd is doing.

This isn't a Black/White thing. This is an extrovert/introvert thing. There were plenty of African American introverts who didn't join the mob, didn't loot or pillage, and instead stayed home and watched a movie, cooked some dinner, and maybe hugged their family.

I have an honest question for you...

Did those people show up with assault rifles like last night? Or, did they just burn some couches and break a few windows?

I was listening to the police feed last night, and "eight black males with AK-47's and M-16's at Crenshaw and MLK." Also, "12 black and Hispanic males with assault rifles, use of force is authorized, and the 'Rammer Van' is good to go" in that same area.

Mob mentality is one thing, but showing up with assault rifles and AK-47's and M-16's is completely different.

You just opened yourself to a devastatingly clever comparison to the Tea Party that will no doubt reveal your racial hatred and far right allegiances.


The difference, of course, being that when people show up to a Tea Party rally with guns, they aren't using them in the commission of violent felonies ... while here in Crenshaw last night, the guns were used in furtherance of committing crimes.  It's a teensy-weensy difference you forgot.

DROxINxTHExWIND: See, here's where the problem comes in. White people at Penn State started a riot to protest the firing of a coach who turned a blind eye to pedophilia. Where were all of the posts criticizing "white culture"? White people rioted in Vancouver over a hockey loss. White people riot every year at the G8 Summit. White people riot in college towns ANNUALLY. These are college educated white people who are acting like savages for no apparent reason. No one attributes their behavior to "white culture". But, you can take 2 riots in 20 years where black people were protesting percieved social injustice and question why its always blacks rioting?

We don't need to break down black people into sub-cultures. The only reason that white people do it is so that they can have someone else to look down on. Oh, those people? They're "white trash", that's why they act the way they do. The implication is that they are a seperate species than the person labelling them and therefore they are inferior. We don't need more seperation in society. The key is to treat people like individuals. If some person, black, white, or purple wants to act like an ass then he or she should be called out on it by all of us.


Rioting in any form is inexcusable. Protesting, is far different than rioting - even when the protesting escalates to "angry crowds". Rioting, implies vandalism, destruction of property and physical violence. These are not byproducts of the mob, but the GOAL of the mob. They are not upset as a perceived social injustice, they want free shiat and a free pass to commit crimes in the name of "injustice". I don't feel you are defending this, so I am not criticizing you here. My problem specifically is with those individuals that comprise the rioters.

Further, separation can be a GOOD thing. The reason why "whites" have created these labels is so that they can remove themselves and identify with a group of people that is not generally viewed as "bad". The problem we are seeing right now is that with the "black culture" since the idea is to not remove yourself from this sort of behavior but instead proudly identify with it because it is one of "your people", you are lumped into the group of misfits. We do treat people as individuals up until the point they identify themselves either by admission or action as part of a group. When you identify with that group, be prepared then to be judged based upon the actions of that group and not as an individual.

This is why specifically our political system is so farking chaotic because you are identified as either a Conservative or Liberal, despite your own individual beliefs. The reason why this exists is because we have a two party system. If instead we had more separation, we would be categorized more accurately. You see, because I identify with some conservative economics, I would be (wrongly) identified as a Republican, which then is misinterpreted to mean I am also a Tea Partier. It does not matter that I identify with Liberal politics for almost all social issues such as equality of marriage. My individuality will never be taken into account unless we have more recognized legitimate parties and that is just the way of the world.
 
2013-07-16 12:12:19 PM  

Pichu0102: The root of the problem is that many in these cultures feel abandoned or hated by the justice system. The justice system, as well as various other services, need to be cleansed of those who have a disposition against minorities, and that would be a good first step.


That might sound good in theory, but the first time someone says the justice system is still racist after that, it won't matter.  This is a cultural problem, but you are looking to the wrong side of this for the fix.  Race baiters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have a lot more to do with these perceived problems than a handful of judges.

Oh.

I don't think I've ever seen anyone say that was a good thing

Can we all just agree that anyone who acts like this is bad?

I think the issue is that the Weenersor and some after have suggested that the people were violent because their skin color has some effect on their disposition. That is what I believe Pinchu is reffering too.

Not skin color, but culture. Unfortunately, one skin color in particular gravitates towards that culture. Please explain to me how and why pretty much everyone knew what "race" would be primarily taking part and leading these riots before it happened? Is that not cause for alarm or curious to you that before I even click the link, I probably know what I am going to see? Before the trial is over, we can predict what will happen? Is it sad that certain locations, we know if a sports team wins/loses, we know there will be looting and riots perpetuated primarily by a certain ethnic group?

No one is that dense to believe it is because of skin color. It has nothing to do with skin color. I would be curious to see a poll of people who think GZ is guilty and reason for believing so broken down by race. I can guarantee you that the black vote would HEAVILY reflect that GZ is guilty, and the other races would be on the fence. Who are the racists there? The ones that vote based on obvious bias, or everyone else? The criminals here are the ones rioting. I do not believe they represent the whole, but one race in particular makes up the vast majority OF the rioters. The bad thing is, no one can openly criticize the rioters without being labeled a racist. We cannot talk openly or ask questions, because asking questions and being curious why the disparity in race participation is racist. Can't we move past that petty bullshiat so we can actually you know, ...


This is what racism looks like.

DROxINxTHExWIND: tenpoundsofcheese: DROxINxTHExWIND: SecretAgentWoman: Way to go to, guys!

Proving that racial stereotypes, indeed, have a basis in reality.

I guess the G8 Summit should tell us something about people on the far left.

FTFY.

So many different factions of white people who differ from the "normals". Lets see:

> poor white trash
> the far left
> the far right
> neo nazis
>  meathead jocks
> fundamentalists
> Tea Partiers
> hippie scum
> yuppie scum
> guidos
> bikers
> anti-government types

When any of the people in these groups commits an atrocity, its not "white" people who are to blame, its not because "white" people have not been raised properly, its not because white people hate authority, its not because white people are inherently violent. But if a few black people tear something up its a "cultural" thing.


Which is because black people in the USA are a minority or "the other", whites are the majority, so whenever whitey wants to complain about another group of whites they have to find a way to mark them as a minority or other too.   This is not an inherently white trait though, it exists everywhere in the world, humans are universally good at finding ways to identify the other when we want to hate/oppress/kill/ someone.  In India they still have the caste system running socially if not legally, the Irish still hate one another over following the wrong version of Jesus, most of the Middle Eastern Arabs hate along the shiate/Sunni divide even more than they hate the Jews or the Great Satan of America, China has 56 different ethnicities, who were all represented by the good looking/respectable/dominant Han ethnicity at the Olympic games because they didn't want to have ugly children on parade. 

So black people are lumped together as a homogenous whole because it is easy to do because they are not the dominant or majority group within the USA, and the only change if they were is that white people would lose all the extra labels, and the blacks would then use against each other.  Not that they don't already identify others within their group for example the Black People vs N-persons sketch of Chris Rock (no I don't learn all my sociology from comedians, but it is an easy to reference and widely known example)

There is only one generalisation/stereotype that I have found to always be true about the people it describes:
Humans hate.

I am not saying that is an inherently good thing, but it is an inherently true thing and it is true everywhere and will never change, not in out lifetimes, or that of our great-great-great grandkids.  There is only one way anyone can ever avoid discrimination or being regarded as The Other; move to a country where they are identified as part of the dominant majority.

I don't think they are going around yelling black power. The problem is that you are automatically identified with the "black culture" because there are no sub-cultures that are defined.

I don't believe celebrating African-American culture is celebrating lawlessness. I think African-American culture needs to be defined better. I further do not believe black culture to be inherently bad and white culture to be inherently good. The only reason why I refer to it as black culture, is because there are no sub-cultures in which we can categorize individuals to belong to. Therefore, unfortunately, the most negative elements will represent the whole. This is true of any group, which was my point on political parties. The same can be used to describe for example religious groups, which is unfortunate but just how it works. In order for that outward perception to change, the core group has to actively distance itself from the bad elements.

There is one, Uncle Toms

"American popular culture has always had a tendency to romanticize hoodlums, whether Al Capone, Bonnie and Clyde or Tony Soprano. But the hip-hop world's celebration of savage violence, educational failure and misogyny by gangsta rap has been one of the worst influences on American youth, especially black youth, in decades. If you want to ruin a nation, a society or an ethnic group, persuade its members that the highest form of achievement lies in criminality.

the money is in the banana stand: I don't think they are going around yelling black power. The problem is that you are automatically identified with the "black culture" because there are no sub-cultures that are defined.

I don't believe celebrating African-American culture is celebrating lawlessness. I think African-American culture needs to be defined better. I further do not believe black culture to be inherently bad and white culture to be inherently good. The only reason why I refer to it as black culture, is because there are no sub-cultures in which we can categorize individuals to belong to. Therefore, unfortunately, the most negative elements will represent the whole. This is true of any group, which was my point on political parties. The same can be used to describe for example religious groups, which is unfortunate but just how it works. In order for that outward perception to change, the core group has to actively distance itself from the bad elements.



I think that might be the best explanation/justfication for stereotyping that I've ever seen. That makes sense.

I would have followed the protestors until one of them turned around to ask me what I was doing, and then I would have shot that person.

"Hey, I'm in a group that's different and separate from you. Don't pretend to understand me or my life experience, because you can't.
But don't you DARE make any comment that infers my group is different or separate, you racist!"

JAGChem82: Joe Blowme: Four Children Gunned Down in Chicago During Zimmerman Trial

whar outrage? Whar Jesse? Whar Al? Will Stevie boycott?

Like your ass cares about inner-city children.  Way to deflect, yet again.  I swear, you all think that black people must have Al or Jesse on our speeddials or something. shiat, 95% of the people invoking their names are white conservatives going into their biatch fits about "reverse racism", "why can't I say the n-word", etc. etc.  And gangsta rap culture? As if it's any different from these rednecks in GA or guidos in NJ, but you'll defend those types to hell and back for some white solidarity.



I work with inner city youth asshat, so yea i dont care. So instead of agreeing there is a problem you deflect with the tried and true.." BUT MOMMY!! BILLIY DOES IT TOO!!!!" sounds alot like but BUSH!!!
and it would appear the only racist here is you, as you are the one using epithets'. Keep ignoring it, that will make everything better.

Greymalkin: DROxINxTHExWIND: tenpoundsofcheese: DROxINxTHExWIND: SecretAgentWoman: Way to go to, guys!

Proving that racial stereotypes, indeed, have a basis in reality.

I guess the G8 Summit should tell us something about people on the far left.

FTFY.

So many different factions of white people who differ from the "normals". Lets see:

> poor white trash
> the far left
> the far right
> neo nazis
>  meathead jocks
> fundamentalists
> Tea Partiers
> hippie scum
> yuppie scum
> guidos
> bikers
> anti-government types

When any of the people in these groups commits an atrocity, its not "white" people who are to blame, its not because "white" people have not been raised properly, its not because white people hate authority, its not because white people are inherently violent. But if a few black people tear something up its a "cultural" thing.

Which is because black people in the USA are a minority or "the other", whites are the majority, so whenever whitey wants to complain about another group of whites they have to find a way to mark them as a minority or other too.   This is not an inherently white trait though, it exists everywhere in the world, humans are universally good at finding ways to identify the other when we want to hate/oppress/kill/ someone.  In India they still have the caste system running socially if not legally, the Irish still hate one another over following the wrong version of Jesus, most of the Middle Eastern Arabs hate along the shiate/Sunni divide even more than they hate the Jews or the Great Satan of America, China has 56 different ethnicities, who were all represented by the good looking/respectable/dominant Han ethnicity at the Olympic games because they didn't want to have ugly children on parade.

So black people are lumped together as a homogenous whole because it is easy to do because they are not the dominant or majority group within the USA, and the only change if they were is that white people would lose a ...


I can see where you're going with this, so I'll respond to you in your response to DRO.  Is their a subset of blacks in America who pride themselves on thuggery? Sure is, I'm not going to deny it, I lived near it in St. Louis and Memphis as a kid and a teen.  But I think what DRO's point is is that, there are blacks who like theatre, science fiction, etc. My parents grew of age in the late 60s early 70s, and they were "saggin" or being gangstaish, or anything like that. Hell, there's a black nerd culture that's probably stronger than the ghetto culture, although you'd never hear it from the media.  Also, to reiterate, if all 40 million black people can be castigated because of a handful of "ignorant Negroes", then we should rip all 210 million white people for the same actions (which have historically negatively affected black people a hell of a lot more) than ours have.

I'm not saying that you are participating in this thought process, but quite a few keyboard racists on Fark have, and they want to deny everything they said once someone calls them out.
