re: Question for the Pro-Segregationist Crowd - volod
[quote]There will be black kids at St George High[/quote] I don't really count St.George. The incorporation of a new city is mostly separation by class. But what puzzles me is this: despite the [b]supposed[/b] lack of industry, there are still plenty of well paying jobs in South Louisiana. If...

Question for the Pro-Segregationist Crowd - volod
I'm going to use the same terminology you use on people who say they dislike the US. Nobody is forcing you to stay in the Southern US. If the racial breakdown is not to your liking, you are free to move to Colorado, Washington, Idaho, Minnesota, Oregon, and anywhere else that is predominantly wh...

[quote] 2. Voting should be restricted to net taxpayers. If you don't have your life in order enough to not be on the government handout, you shouldn't have a say in how to run the country. I don't care if you paid 20K or 20 bucks in taxes. You should be a net payer in order to vote.[/quote] I s...

re: Why can't white people openly advocate for quasi segregation? Other races can and they do - volod
[quote] Yet, liberals push the agenda of diversity and inclusion of everyone except for whites and Christians. [/quote] The problem is that you dont acknowledge white Christians as having their own spaces. They actually have more than the minorities. Most of the states in the Midwest are pre...

Honest answer. Its because of the historical context white separation has had in the US. I would classify this as "death by bad precedence". Historically when whites segregated intentionally, it was to promote white supremacy. It was also to deprive other races of opportunities. Is it pos...

The Abuse of "Subverting Expectations" in Media Part 1 - volod
This has been a reoccurring trend in movies and TV shows over the past 10 years. On a surface level, I realize that Subversion/Deconstruction became popular since it was a counter to cliches and tropes in popular media. The issue is that subversion is just like any other tool in that it must be...
