 Batting it out to the last comment when a sensible person would have cut their losses 5 pages in is a flaw I'll admit to.

goat012006: Ned Stark: goat012006: Dang It Ned. You've backed yourself into a corner here. I feel for ya.

My dad told me, when I introduced him to my black girlfriend (later to be wife) that I should be mindful of the pitfalls of interracial relationships. He wasn't saying don't do it, he wasn't trying to discourage me (matter of fact he elbowed me in the ribs and said she was hot lol). He was matter of factly pointing out to be mindful of how I behave, respond, and talk within the frame of our relationship. He knew that since I could NEVER EVER fully relate to her experience as a black woman in America, that I was in peril of stumbling over my own whiteness, as it were, and farking it up.

Is that what you've been trying to say? Because, love ya buddy, but you've done a shiat job lol.

It's a hell of a lot closer than "hurr, physically separate all races in the name of science"

So it's more about, as a white guy, being aware that my frame of mind as a white, straight, male in America I am going to be unable to (at times) comprehend and relate to my wife's reality at times.

But that is inherently a ME problem, not a HER problem, ya get me? The fact that some interracial marriages can't get over that hump is, at least in my opinion, indicative of our (white) America's inability to see beyond our own frame of reference. This doesn't mean that on some sort of cellular level, the amount of melanin in our skins, if different, causes some sort of strange magnetic anti-attraction. It isn't biological at all, but rather entirely a social impediment. Again, not trying to speak for you, but I hope that's what you were getting at Ned.


I think the frame of reference thing works in both directions. With that in mind, you're right.

Ned Stark: Some Guy In A Waistcoat: Ned Stark: No, I don't believe that. Stop turning the intensity of things to 11inside your own head and then blaming me for the resultant nonsense.

Okay, so you're apparently warning people off because of a 20% chance of failure in marriage, based on a cherry-picked portion of a study that's increasingly irrelevant as said relationships become more common and marriage less so. The point here is that you're still advocating for avoidance of mixed-race coupling based on a faulty premise.

People simply aren't the fragile little glass statues you're imagining them to be here. No one is ending their marriage because someone somewhere is aware of a demographic fact that suggests the marriage is 20% more likely to fail. They've got real problems to deal with.

No, they aren't so fragile as to crumble under one person telling everyone to avoid the relationships because they're more likely to fail. And I never said that was the case. But when you have multiple people saying that, amongst everything else - the higher prevalence of firsthand racism, hostilities from families and other groups, harassment of their children for being mixed-race; it's placing another straw on the proverbial dromedary's back. If everyone is telling you your relationship won't succeed for various reasons, guess what happens? 

One person is easy to ignore. A whole society is nigh-impossible to.  

It's almost as if you're missing the point on purpose.

I don't offer people random unsolicited dating advice. This started many threads back because someone asked. It's here in this thread because other people danced around it with clever allusions and I spoke up in my own defense.


And that's fine - I'm just trying to get across that even if you're not actively out there waving signs and telling people not to do it, that it's the attitude itself that contributes in a not-insignificant way to the issue when enough people hold it. It's less about you specifically, and more about the concept itself. 

I might not be doing that effectively, mind. It's been a long day for me and I'm long overdue for a good sleep. After this post, I'll probably head to bed. 

I'll just say: try to keep an open mind to the possibility that the societal factors that increase the tension and difficulty for mixed-race couples includes the pressure from people assuming that they're already more likely to fail, and that holding that assumption can also reinforce the other factors that increase tension for an interracial couple.

Destructor: beakerxf: Do you know how money laundering works? You take that was earned in a criminal act, funnel it through a legitimate business, then the money looks legal.

Articles written by self-described racists, funneled through a couple vaguely brown looking fellas suddenly seems not racist.

Breibart is just laundered racism.

That's the least important thing about an idea. Ideas aren't money. Ideas either stand on their own or they don't. Their source and motivation can (and should) be scrutinized. But censored and discarded? You never know where a good idea might come from. Autobaun from Nazis, for example. (They were also huge into gun control)


That was a quick pivot from author trying to hard to connecr Breitbart to racists to let's hear racists out sometimes that have good ideas.

If the ideas were so benign, they wouldn't try so hard to cover up their source. I suspect you're smart enough to get that are just playing dumb.

The things you joke about are people suffering trauma.  Microagressions aboslutely hurt people, especially vulnerable groups. And safe spaces save lives. Literally.

I used to laugh about safe spaces in the early days - until I actually met folk they had saved. Funnily enough, I met them after getting denied entry to a safe space. I dated a bisexual girl who went to one of the local Stonewall support groups - I accompanied her there one time and got refused entry. So I'm left outside, grumbling to myself when one of the kids (oh sweet Jebus, I'm old enough to say they were kids now) comes out for a smoke break and we start chatting. 
Turned out he'd attempted suicide twice because of the harassment he'd been getting since he came out, and it was only because of the group that he'd not attempted it a third time. Having somewhere where he absolutely knew he didn't have to worry about anyone attacking him because of who and what he was, and getting the support from people who could relate to his experience in a way I never could saved his life. 

I met the rest of the group over the weeks, and I learned their stories. And that's about the point when I stopped being resentful when they all disappeared into the building without me and understood why they needed a safe space.

Valuable insight. Thank you.

Was just going to say it, you beat me to it. Touching, insightful, and spot the fark on. I like the cut of your jib good sir.

Destructor: skyotter: Destructor: But at every turn it seems that Breitbart is trying to distance themselves from them.

We read very different articles.  Got a link to the one you read?

Imagine a neutral party looking at the Fark political tab as an example of actual political discussion. (Hilarious, I know.) How would they evaluate the constant (for example) denigration of Ann Coulter, etc? Similar because the people admit to harboring a dark sense of humor (sound familiar?)

That's what these internal email exchanges might be like. Hard to say since we only have been exposed to the cherry pickings tainted further by the suggestions of the author.


Did you miss the part where Milo had open white supremacists and fascist loons basically ghostwrite some of his articles and then denied any association with them to the point of repeatedly threatening lawsuits?

Thanks! It was a genuinely good post and you sound like a genuinely good dude.

I deserve it since apparently I'm the ONLY one here willing to share "research" by posting "examples" of why someone might think about entering into an interracial relationship. As I said earlier....so disappointed in you lazy farks right now.

More or less. Biracial kids get two chances for weird ethnically centered genetic disorders(like sickle cell). Also, really unusual combinations can have a rather harder time finding matching donors for anything.

Fairly trivial stuff.

Again, not a biology dude here, but I don't think the kids pediatrician has ever mentioned any dangers posed. I'll have to ask when we go get their flu shots in the next two weeks. Already got one down, need to get the other two so the household doesn't all get smacked with that nastiness this season.

Ps: the CDC is recommending everyone get the shot, not the nasal spray this year. Apparently the nasal spray is not going to be effective against a certain strain of H1N1 they anticipate will hit this flu season.

While I like the "I just like Milo enough to defend him for 4 hours on the internet" thread, and the "Whites and blacks shouldn't marry" conversations, I started this thread laughing at the guy asking us to trust Milo.

Now I'm just sad after reading that Zoe Quinn stuff. Like, actually sad. Milo was always bullshiat said in a nice accent, but clearly, the growth was bigger than it was assumed by me.

MmmmBacon: fusillade762: I wonder how the Mercers endgame jibes with the Kochs.

The Kochs seems more focused on obtaining the 'old-school', pre-Tea Party goals of the GOP, namely reductions in or outright removal of so-called Entitlements and social programs (including the ACA), and tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, specifically the repeal of the Estate Tax. They are willing to go along with other goals, but they seem hell-bent on repeal of the ACA and the Estate Tax, with other tax cuts for the rich, as well.

These Mercers seem more interested in Bannon's kind of Republican Party, namely extreme Immigration reform, and otherwise empowering the Whites over other races. They seem to be behind much of the populism that has run rampant first with the Tea Party, and then exploding behind Trump's rise to power. Surely the Kochs had their hand in this, as well, but it appears that was only a means to an end.


The Kochs are pushing criminal justice reform too.  They aren't wrong when they argue criminal justice reforms are necessary, but I'm afraid that what really motivates them is the desire to make it damned near impossible to prosecute white collar criminals and corporations, and not the plight of the average person caught in the gears of the mass incarceration machine.  As for the Mercers, what better strategy to attack the prosecution of white collar crime than to put white collar criminals in the White House?

Nice story, I had a similar experience. I had a group of friends who ran the gamut of LGBT. I used to hang out with them all the time and attended many of their parties. The primary couple at the head of the group was one of my best friends and I had spent most of my socialization with them and in their house. One weekend I found out that they had a HUGE party that was a blast, which I was not invited to. I got pretty hurt about it as I knew 90% of the attendees and 75% were considered close friends. 

A few weeks later I brought it up with a chip on my shoulder. My friend patiently explained to me that I was the only cis-gendered white hetero male in the group and that the party was focused on the identity of LGBT. While they were all my friends, it wasn't a space designed for me. It was a LGBT party and the party was meant to be a place where they could all be themselves without worry. Even though I "was cool about things" I still was outside that circle. My non-invite was not meant as insult but as a protection of their friends and their good night. I got it and apologized for my behavior due to it and ended up discussing this with multiple other attendees. 

People like to pretend that safe spaces are new or just for "millennials". While the official title is a new thing, but they concept has been around for a long time. Safe spaces are a thing which are important to everyone. Everyone seeks out safe spaces. For some these are a refuge from harassment or abuse. Others they are a place where they feel they can fully express themselves without fear of retribution or harassment.  Safe spaces are anywhere that you isolate a group to feel safe/comfortable. Good old boy clubs are safe spaces. Guys night in the cabin/icehouse is a safe space. Kink nights/shows are a safe space. Girl talk is a safe space. When I don't invite X over because they are going to piss of Y, I am creating a safe space.

Also not a biology guy, but I'm fairly certain that ethnically centered disorders don't always correspond neatly with our social construct of racial categories that tend to based on external appearance alone. So predispositions to certain disorders that rely on genotype alone can get lost in the shuffle.  There is a surprising number of Hispanic people in New Mexico and southern Colorado with genetic mutations that are usually associated with European Jews that predispose them to breast cancer and other disorders.  The mutations apparently stem from Spanish Conversos who migrated to New Mexico. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/the-secret-jews-of-san-​l​uis-valley-11765512/

I can see why tissue matching would be a problem, but wouldn't "outbreeding" for mixed race kids lower the risk of recessive genetic disorders that are more prevalent in groups with a narrower gene pools? I think that social problems would be more of an issue than genetics for mixed race folks.

If anyone who's more versed in the subject wants to correct me or clarify anything, I'd be happy to hear what they have to say.

Yeah, I am fairly certain that my pediatrician has never said anything about difficulties. Again, having the sickle cell trait won't give my son any symptoms. It just means he can pass it on (key word CAN, not will). Not being an expert either I could be wrong, I fully admit that, but just like you, I always thought that increasing the DNA pool that you can pull from actually decreasedthe likelihood of genetic mishaps, not the other way around.

He is like benadryl countywatch. Even when you get his name wrong, everyone knows who he is.


bandersnatch cumalong is at least someone that we're playing with because it's funny, where as with Ohno Minniepenis, I want to ridicule him so that his supporters realize how foolish they are that they're sheep following a boar

Ned Stark: goat012006: Ned Stark: HotWingConspiracy: Ned Stark: Ive disavowed the importance of biology a couple times here

Here, but not in previous threads. You were prattling on about blood transfusions and disease before

Not in regards to relationships, I didn't. Someone specifically brought up biracial children.

Meh, one of my kids has the sickle cell trait passed down from mom. Not a biology guy, but apparently the trait developed to stave off malaria or something. Is that what we are talking about here?

More or less. Biracial kids get two chances for weird ethnically centered genetic disorders(like sickle cell). Also, really unusual combinations can have a rather harder time finding matching donors for anything.

Fairly trivial stuff.


Wait, what?  Sickle cell is caused by inheriting two recessive abnormal hemoglobin genes, and a white parent is unlikely to have one to pass down.  How the hell are you figuring they're getting "two chances"?

From TFA:

"After Cannes, as Bannon pushed Yiannopoulos to do more live events that presented expensive logistical challenges, the involvement of the investing partners became increasingly obvious. Following a May event at DePaul University in Chicago in which Black Lives Matter protesters stormed a Yiannopoulos speech, he wrote to Bannon, "I wouldn't confess this to anyone publicly, of course, but I was worried ... last night that I was going to get punched or worse. ... I need one or two people of my own."

"Agree 100%," Bannon wrote. "We want you to stir up more. Milo: for your eyes only we r going to use the mercers private security company." "

Horizon: You know, there is a certain grim and morbid satisfaction from the knowledge that if these fascist farks truly took over, they'd stick farking Milo in a gas chamber too. His last words that he'd squeal out as they sealed the door would be "wait, I'm one of you, I thought we were friends!" I wonder if he even realizes that or if he's so far up his own ass he's blind to it


he'd be just like Ernst Rohm.

Also interesting, from TFA:

"At the Republican National Convention, Yiannopoulos deliberately chose a hotel for Gionet far from the convention center, writing to another Breitbart employee, "Exactly where I want him. ... He needs the commute to remind him of his place."  Gionet did not respond to multiple requests by BuzzFeed News for comment.

But Gionet, who would go on to march with the alt-right in Charlottesville, was still useful to Yiannopoulos as a gateway to a group of young, hip, social media-savvy Trump supporters.

Yiannopoulos managed all of his assistants and ghostwriters under his own umbrella, using "yiannopoulos.net" emails and private Slack rooms. This structure insulated Breitbart's upper management from the 4chan savants and GamerGate vets working for Yiannopoulos."

You know what the saddest part about all this is?

The vast amount of people in this thread who are bragging about having the attention span of a gnat.

I don't normally give BuzzFeed a second thought, but this was a good piece of actual journalism and people are literally bragging that they can't read.

I've always hated the stupid shiat Milo has said, I was glad he finally shot himself in the dick with that pedophilia bit. Now I hope they can use this to nail the rest of those assholes to the wall.

What article did you read?

fusillade762: Anybody make it through the whole thing? What do I need to know about these assholes other than the fact that they're hateful authoritarian dickbags?


No if I don't have raw emails I don't read shiat like this.
 
2017-10-06 09:08:41 PM  

drxym: Clearly there was more than "journalism" at work here. It was clearly an orchestrated attempt to rile up the lunatic fringe and create a movement. Unsurprisingly the Mercers, Bannon et al play into the Russian interference story too.


That's probably what HotWingConspiracy might be referencing as "if they have this much, they gotta have more"

Fairly trivial stuff.

Also not a biology guy, but I'm fairly certain that ethnically centered disorders don't always correspond neatly with our social construct of racial categories that tend to based on external appearance alone. So predispositions to certain disorders that rely on genotype alone can get lost in the shuffle.  There is a surprising number of Hispanic people in New Mexico and southern Colorado with genetic mutations that are usually associated with European Jews that predispose them to breast cancer and other disorders.  The mutations apparently stem from Spanish Conversos who migrated to New Mexico. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/the-secret-jews-of-san-l​uis-valley-11765512/

I can see why tissue matching would be a problem, but wouldn't "outbreeding" for mixed race kids lower the risk of recessive genetic disorders that are more prevalent in groups with a narrower gene pools? I think that social problems would be more of an issue than genetics for mixed race folks.

If anyone who's more versed in the subject wants to correct me or clarify anything, I'd be happy to hear what they have to say.

Yeah, I am fairly certain that my pediatrician has never said anything about difficulties. Again, having the ...


You are correct, Ned doesn't know what he's talking about. Your kid inherited the sickle cell trait, but doesn't have sickle cell disease. Having one white and one black parent greatly decreases the chance of getting sickle cell disease compared to having two black parents.

sometimes all this feels like a cosmic horror. I dumped a dude and to get back at me he helped usher in a new chapter in white supremacy

That has to be some powerful... survivor's guilt? Would that be the term here? Whatever it is, it can't feel good even though she is not to blame for it. Gamergate was a test bed slash prototype stage for a lot of the alt-right crap and tactics we see today.
That Gamergate wasn't stomped out before it metastasized is not a good sign for humanity in general. It evolved and merged with old style neo-Nazis to be the alt-right we see today.

weddingsinger: Deez Piles: This report brought to you by Buzzfeed.

No further questions.

Buzzfeed broke major stories this past year about:

Steele Dossier (yes, they were 1st)
Putin/Russia hit squads killing 15 in Great Britain
A piece on Fancy Bear, a Russian hacker group undermining the election
and, today, about US intelligence illegally spying on Americans' financial records

and, helpfully, they have a quiz where they'll guess your sign based on the pizza you like.


I do enjoy reading BuzzFeed. The human interest articles are fun as you say, and I like reading my pizza prediction in the morning. But I wouldn't go there for serious news.

The "Fancy Bear" article is a rehash of the unproven assertions against the Trump campaign, including the hoary old chestnut about  Mr. Trump saying "if you find those emails I hope you keep going" (he said this because Hillary had already exposed higher-than-classified information deliberately, effectively turning them over to the Russians ("But the emails!"). He was not inviting the Russians to do any spying, only to share with the American public what Hillary had already given to a foreign government that was paying her). The article is long on assertion and curiously devoid of real research. The authors note a "report" from Crowdstrike...without mentioning that Crowdstrike was the very company hired by the DNC and therefore the ones with the highest CYA motivation to point the finger at someone else. The DNC "hack" was no hack at all but an inside job, as confirmed by real cybersecurity experts and Wikileaks' Julian Assange (even people who want him dead concede that his info has been 100% on the money).

William Binney broke the story about 10 years ago  that the NSA can and does sweep up, record, store, search and analyze absolutely everything. I agree with you that any light shone on the deep state's horrific overreach in violation of the Fourth Amendment is most welcome. But saying Buzzfeed "broke the story" is a stretch.

Less important but I'm especially amused by Buzzfeed's trashing of Infowars' line of diet supplements. Buzzfeed hired a "third party" company to analyze Infowars' product line and the review was predictably catty, though it conceded that all the products were safe and did what Infowars said they did. Only problem is that the "third party" company is a competitor who markets many of the very products it panned -- as in exactly the same products, just differently private-labeled.
