This is meaningful, because it shows that white people in this country are not all as thick as bricks, myopically addicted to Tucker Carlson.
This is just assholeism.

and the idiots are winning the war.

Looking for deeper meaning is just more assholeism

It’s a self licking icecream cone.
Ummm, there is no deeper meaning to find…

Most of us seem to agree that systemic rascism exists and CRT has a valid place in education and law etc. etc...The complaints are usually a skewed take on CRT’s points, i.e that it teaches all white kids that they are inherently little racists because they were born white. It’s true that white people are born with privilege, or as Paul Mooney says, “The complexion for the protection.”

I’ve been to events where I was the only white person, supporting the cause. At one I was pretty dismayed by what I heard from the speaker. That all white people are an inferior race of degenerate homosexuals. When they started putting up images of art from ancient Greece depicting homosexuals and saying all whites were disgusting and brought homosexuality to the earth, that’s when I said, “Huh?” Yet everyone else was nodding their heads in agreement.

Anyhoo, I like John McWhorthy’s opinions. Call him an Uncle Tom, Oreo or whatever convenient term that is used to insult him typically. The only loss will be in a less vibrant discourse.

Removed a number of off-topic posts, some of which contained profanity. Next step will be locking the thread.

Moderator consensus was to re-open the thread. Hopefully further posts can remain civil and on-topic.

Umm, did you find yourself in a meeting of 5 percenters or something?

I would be on the socially liberal end of the Labor Party, which sounds about right.
Progressive party.

While I was still in the zone, I also took a quiz on which Power Ranger I am. Turns out I’m the yellow one.

Honestly, I had no idea what I was walking into. My friend invited me and said he thought I was one of the few white people who could handle truth. But everyone looked cool, not a bunch of guys wearing robes. :shrug:

Oh, it’s interesting, alright. I skimmed through it. It’s long. When I have more time perhaps I’ll read word for word. From what I did read, white people may on occasion be allowed to become 5 per centers, as sickly babies. Maybe that’s why I was allowed to be present?

Bernie Sander’s video about people losing faith in government and democracy doesn’t imo fully address the deep seated mistrust of US government that a lot of people hold. The five percenters don’t trust anyone in the US government. I can’t blame them, even if I don’t agree with them.

Regressive forces want us to lack confidence in the gvt. What they really want us to do is to lose confidence in ourselves. That’s where tyranny begins, beginning with the first tyrant, Pisistratus, he was thrust into power because Athenians lost confidence in Democracy, that is, themselves.

I am sometimes a bit fascinated as to why so many Buddhists seem to have strong political opinions/views and sometimes are borderline extremists. Discussions can turn emotional and strong quickly. To me it is just more grasping.

Yes, and then you have the Wu Tang Clan combing this with their concept of Buddhism...

I am always fascinated by how some Buddhists feign indifference to politics, as if the plight of their fellows is of no concern to them at all. There is all kinds of grasping out there, including indifference.
