DISTURBING: is all the "BLACKS want ___" and "BLACKS say ____" threads. Disturbing, not offensive.


Is it disturbing because you think it's true, or because you think it's false? That matters a great deal. If you think the sentiments false, exaggerated, or even misplaced, I'm not sure "disturbing" is somehow milder a term than "offensive"--though they do convey completely different things.

quote:

UNDERSTANDABLE: is that the threads are in response to the asshat protests claiming "WHITES do ____" and "WHITES are ____" , etc


So white "wah wah OMG frick the world" grievance is understandable as long as it's in response to black "wah wah OMG frick the world" grievance?

Not sure that's too well thought out.

quote:

I find that I am not often in conflict simply because my honest thoughts are not confrontational


Honest thoughts tend to ruffle feathers, one way or another. If you want everyone, black and white, to shut the frick up about how bad their race has it and how evil "those other races" are, just say so.

It's safe, man.

There's some overcorrection, pent up racial eye-poking and general douchery going on, but what's new? :sad

The frick is wrong with you?

No..it disturbs me that I see so much of it. Not the content...not the posters. I come to the board, I see a lot of these threads, it disturbs me (disturb just as in not what I like, uncomfortable, etc.) I can take my hand and "disturb" a calm pond of water. It does not mean it is horrible. It is simply not "settled"

I UNDERSTAND why the threads exist. Why can't you seem to UNDERSTAND the definition of UNDERSTAND? I am simply saying that the amount of talk is understandable. It is being discussed a lot in many media outlets. i UNDERSTAND that it happens here, too. UNDERSTAND?

I'm not sure you thought at all. GFY

I've never advocated that in any way.


If you are just trying to be annoying to me, congrats. You got me to lose my cool a bit.

I'm done explaining myself...IF you don't UNDERSTAND after this one post.

Steady BHO, steady, you are a good man. Things will move on, now get back to creeping into threads and slowly backing back out!

Wasn't trying to put words into your mouth. I guess I would just like everyone to "shut the frick up about how bad their race has it and how evil "those other races" are" and I assumed that you might share that sentiment.

I don't post things to annoy people. I'm honestly surprised that of all the posts that I've read on this board over the past 4 years, my last one actually elicited some kind of rise out of you. I'm not too often surprised.

Ahhh...Then, I misunderstood and I apologize for my reaction.

TD may be the locker room version of political dialogue...but you can get the WHOLE argument here. And the Right Wingers WILL call out blatant racism in our ranks. And it'll never be "balanced" re the number of Progressives here; they can't stand the heat...they split.

Virtually every political message board on the internet tends to become an echo chamber for the right or the left given enough time. It's no shocker that the political board of a site dedicated to college football in Louisiana leans far to the right. I visit other political boards from time to time where conservatives no longer bother to post because they "can't stand the heat." Most people don't enjoy posting about politics in a forum where the opposing side can drown them out, so they leave and go to a site where their point of view is the majority.

Funny thing about political discussion is I find the best actual discussions on a police board. It trends libertarian but the big government types from the northeast always give it a good shot.

As to BHP, now is when I would want to see you the most. I certainty do not see you echoing the stupid in the streets.

Right after I signed off I heard a loud noise in my condo parking lot. A man was changing his tire and his vehicle fell on him. Giving CPR before the hospital on wheels we have here, made me so tired in that hot sun. The firemen medics took over. Two men lifted the damned car to get the poor man out. I spoke with this neighbor of mine yesterday and he is now dead. His lifeless body went on the back board then gurney. I have seen a lot of medical trauma but that was awful. To the trauma nurse from my local ER that posts here please let me know if he made it.

This board is ridiculous. Life is short.

He is DOA but they could have brought him back in the ambulance, you never know. Our ambulances here are huge ER's on wheels. The best trauma center is right up the road. I started chest compressions and then the fireman got there just in time to bag him. No pulse. He is dead. He told me yesterday he was as pissed as I was that the landscapers cut off the bushes so badly. There is a trauma ER nurse from my city that posts here but mostly on the OT.

He had just lost his job and got a flat tire and was changing it to try to go to an interview.

Perspective. The essence of being. A cryin shame that it don't come built in with the package.

Sad. Faith helps. God rest his soul.

Good work, CA. There...and here.

It fell on his arms? Was he under the car or something?
