re: Fun Fact: There is more Slavery in Africa today than during Colonial America - Riggle on 1/24/21 at 9:26 am
[quote]If you don’t know what the point of the thread is, how do you know the reasoning is faulty?[/quote] I should say: It seems like the point of this thread is to imply colonial slavery "wasn't that bad" based off this modern standard, which would be totally asinine. That's why I hope it's not...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Fun Fact: There is more Slavery in Africa today than during Colonial America - Riggle on 1/24/21 at 9:24 am
[quote]That our history books need to be erased and rewritten. That our educational system needs to be used to reprogram nearly half of the country's population.[/quote] I'll never understand why people are so defensive about teaching nuanced American history. Criticizing institutions like slaver...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Fun Fact: There is more Slavery in Africa today than during Colonial America - Riggle on 1/24/21 at 9:07 am
[quote]according to the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database, 12.5 million Africans were shipped to the New World. Only about 388,000 were shipped to North America. That’s right: a tiny percentage.[/quote] Considering Africans were used like human cattle and bred in the states, of course the numbe...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]Depending on his degree field vandy might be way better than Arkansas but if he’s just getting some generic degree it really wouldn’t matter where he went[/quote] Oh you're certainly right. Undergrad is pretty uniform across the country. Especially if you're doing an "athlete degree." Ther...

re: Bret Bielema, Arkansas fighting over buyout and Patriots are in the middle - Riggle on 1/23/21 at 9:01 pm
[quote]Earlier I checked to see when our game was today and it was already over.[/quote] "Look at me I'm so not interested. Hey everyone! Notice how not interested I am!" If you're so not interested why post about it? The football and basketball teams are improving but you refuse to give any n...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Did we go after Scotty pippen jr? - Riggle on 1/23/21 at 8:58 pm
[quote] I mean I could understand back in 1920 but it seems nowadays some of the best universities out there have some of the wackiest professors[/quote] I will say rankings do matter in terms of the research people produce. I study math and did my undergrad at the U of A. I'm a graduate student ...

re: Transgender Athletes and historical sports records - Riggle on 1/23/21 at 10:28 am
[quote]Can this destroy girls high school and even college sports as we know it.[/quote] There's plenty of negative outcomes possible. The problem is these political agents don't acknowledge biological differences in males and females that apply to 98% of people. Also conflating the cultural expr...

re: You gotta feel a little bad for Tennessee - Riggle on 1/21/21 at 11:31 am
[quote]You gotta feel a little bad for Tennessee[/quote] As someone who has watched his team make terrible hires and get put in the shit, I can sympathize with them. However, UT recruits against my team, and them sucking might give the Pittboss more inroads into Tennessee. So nah them sucking ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
