Isn't Sambo a fighting style? I don't understand what you're trying to say. (Apr 7, 2009 | post #147)
When you explain it like that it kinda makes my earlier reply seem kind of unneccessary. Good debate. (Apr 6, 2009 | post #367)
<quoted text> What I attepted to try to explain earlier is that Racism is a system that EFFECTS people. Agreed? The only problem is that if you havent come to a general consensus on exactly what ways and how exactly it effects people, then you havent quite agreed on and quite identified all the effects right? Therefore if we dont know the effects how can we know the CAUSES? The effects play a great role in Cause-and-effects because by witnessing the effects and analyzing it we may be able to aptly determine in the future WHAT is causing it, and establish a name and or principle around it. Doctors/Physicians , Scientists of every field use this type of reasoning all the time within their specialized fields. When you explain it like that it kinda makes my earlier reply seem kind of unneccessary. Good debate. (Apr 6, 2009 | post #366)
Interesting reply, Pharaoh. To switch gears just a bit, I feel that the word RACISM is frequently misused. The use of the word has taken on on new meaning almost. It seems ridiculous to me that members of the media such as Bill O'Reilly or Sean Hannity would be called RACIST for simply disagreeing with someone. Why does everything always end up about race? Sometimes the issues are in fact way more simple than that. The word RACISM already has established definitions so really I fail to see what further reserch would accomplish in regard to the meaning of the word. It would maybe change how it's used in the future but it wouldn't erase any meaning already in use. The only real dispute I see in this thread is over the use of the word itself. The definition may be slightly different, but it's the same word and it is being used properly. I like the POWER + PREJUDICE = RACISM but that is but one meaning/use of the word. And for that to even hold much weight the words POWER and PREJUDICE would need to fall on further scrutiny as well. For those words can also be used to mean different things.

No, as anyone could tell I am using definition 2 of racism. That's Black Racism as I know it. Thanks but if you intend on proving me wrong you'll have to throw in the towel. (Apr 5, 2009 | post #353)
Well to begin with, I'd like to say that I appreciate that there has been something of a debate here without insult. I can respect an opinion which differs from my own when I don't feel like I'm being insulted and I'm sure that would be shared by the majority of TOPIX posters. It was said that resentment is not racism by an above post. Well I gotta disagree because when that resentment is taken out on me it becomes a form of recism. I am but an ordinary citizen. I've been 'discriminated against' aplenty and it's always something ridiculous. Like I go into a McDonalds and I'm the only white man present and I get ignored. Man I couldn't tell you how many times that's happened. I mean if I thought of myself as a racist I wouldn't wanna be in there to begin with but it didn't make any difference to me until I was treated differently. Differently because I wasn't black. That's f**ked up. That to me would equate Black racism. But that's so beneath me. It's stupid that someone working behind the counter at a fast food place would feel in a position of power, but it is often the case. But to my point it would seem that the word "Racist" holds a different meaning to different poeple. And honestly I have yet to see a proper, dictionary definition that would suggest I'm using it improperly... (Apr 5, 2009 | post #351)

One thing I think alotta Black people fail to realize is that for the most part whites don't feel a racial unity. The 'Us vs Them' concept is simply non-existant because there is no 'Us'. It makes people with the view that it's all about race appear shallow-minded. There's no depth, no character. Only a color. For most white people there exists no 'white identity', we are all simply individuals. All very different individuals with different ideals, goals, dreams. What equates racism is the judgement of an individual/person based on ethnicity alone. Therefore not only are Black people capable of being racist, it is very commonplace. This is in turn causing alotta white folks to say f**k it, if you don't like me, f**k you. The fact is many of the opinions expressed on this forum are rooted in ignorance. I am nothing like the white guy who lives next door to me beyond a decency of behavior which all should have. Here's another news flash : Being Black (or insert minority here) is no eccuse for your behavior. Those who cannot assume responsibility for their own behavior are in fact inferior. This inferiority is a result of action/non-action, not race. It's as if you cannot advance for fear of losing the blanket/safety net that being black provides you with. It's pretty f**king retarded that this is where we are in 2009. (Apr 3, 2009 | post #325)

Dr. Endo, what are your thoughts on becoming the 'Great Cornholio' of you people? Maybe you should garner the distinction of being known as 'Cornwallace'. (Apr 2, 2009 | post #123)
