I get a lot of notifications, and I just skipped over that and forgot to reply to it. I know him in real life actually, going for a beer with him tonight, and he's a good lad, and also wasn't talking about you I should add. Generally, I try to find some common ground with posters anyway, so I am only rarely going to call someone a retard even if I disagree with most of what they post, there's bound to be some things we can talk about.

I've argued with you about religion in the past, but I can't be arsed getting into religious debates with anyone these days (for the most part) but found plenty of other things that you and I have a shared interest in, and likewise I'd rather disagree with you courteously on a new topic than just rehashing old ground.

That's the same way I try and approach other posters who post stuff I might think is ridiculous, such as this thread...I think it's madness for people not to see why gay pride is not the same as having straight pride, but I don't need to call people making that connection a name, as I am more likely to get them to have a rethink about it by not doing so.
That's unfortunate, then. I seem to get more passionate reactions from you when discussing Lennox Lewis getting knocked out and Roger Federer cherrypicking Wimbledon.

:lol:

Yeah, I just veered away from certain topics as they become circular. Moreover, what someone like you believes about God is not causing any harm, whereas some of the hate speech that you have promoted about Federer is so vile that it should probably see you doing several years in a high security prison. :smile

Are you proud to be white? If so, why? What did you do to achieve this, and why is it an achievement? You should be proud that you came from a poor background with very few opportunities and made a success of your life. That is an achievement and it is something that you did off your own work. Being white and male is neither an achievement or something that is superior to alternatives, so what's to be proud about?

The reason why people who are black talk about black pride is due to the shame they were told to accept in the past. It's due to knowing that their ancestors from not so long ago were slaves. It's the fact that when my parents were going to high school, black people in the US were barred from certain schools, had to give up their seats on buses to white people etc. Into the 70's in the UK, landlords could legally put signs in their windows saying "No Blacks". If you grew up seeing this stuff, you might feel shame. Ashamed to be who you were, because it was deemed inferior by the government and by the majority of the population of the country you lived in.

What's the opposite to shame? Pride. So as laws were passed to give people equality, a younger generation who had seen the mistreatment of their parents and grandparents and knew that there was still ongoing bigotry towards them as minorities decided to say "I am happy to be as I am, I am not ashamed of being black, I am proud of my ancestry and of being the way I was born".

It is a different use of the word pride, and if you ask me am I happy to be white? Yes. I am happy and content being exactly what I am. Would I describe myself as "proud" to be white? No, and not only is that because I don't have a background that makes that seem necessary, but if you want to really point the finger of blame at anyone for making "white pride" seem racist, then point it at the racist, neo-nazi groups who use the phrase "white pride". Go and look at where you see white people shouting about white pride etc and it's on forums like Stormfront.

Racist white people more than anyone else have pigeonholed being "white and proud" as being a declaration of racial superiority.

Regardless of that, if you've grown up in a majority white nation as a white person, then there's no history of shaming, oppression and hatred to your experience or families experience based upon your skin, and without that, there's really no purpose to proclaiming you're proud to have the skin you do. That reaction will almost always come from someone who has been previously told or grown up knowing people who were like them were told the opposite...be ashamed of your skin/sexuality etc.
happy, proud, its all good man :good

Well said as always.

All parades are shit.

Surely you are not serious !

Are you saying that the donald's July 4 parade in DC is excrement ?

Sounds like it's going to be a grand affair with tanks and APCs and jets and such.

A lot of straight dudes will be in that one, and probably a few gays as well.

Will we be able to tell them apart ?

Don't ask, don't tell ?

Everyone loves a parade !

I hope the donald gets to wear a nice colourful military uniform with lots of medals; such a generalissimo he was, in spite of the bone spurs !

As a nod to the gays, maybe the pants part of the uniform could have the butt cheeks removed so he could flash those delectable orange chubby cheeks !

World's gone mad.
It truly has. We have hit a point where mayors turn American city streets over to Antifa while the cops stand down and just watch the assault & battery as spectators, being straight is considered controversial, one of two major American political parties is campaigning on free everything for people who enter the country illegally and getting rid of the C&BP and ICE altogether, a Democrat went to Mexico and held a campaign event for the US presidential election, and another Democrat threatened to use nukes on US citizens on American soil if they resist his gun-grabbing scheme.... it is truly Bizzaro World in real life.

The GOP is every bit as corrupt as the Democrats, but they seem more rooted in reality - with Trump as their number one guy. Let that sink in.

I hope Mr Trump wears full military uniform and has at least a dozen medals.
