So you tell me, why is it acceptable to hold the beige kids accountable ..... and why aren't we holding the trayvon rioters accountable?
There was ever a question of whether or not they are accountable for their actions. Of course, how could we let them skirt away on their responsibilities when P&N has an obsession with reporting on beige behavior.
You guys make darn sure we know beige people are tyrants that need to be "fixed".
it has to do with scared of actually acknowledging the problems in our society (with ALL colors, from pure ivory white to black as night) rather than simply shrieking racism over and over and over.
Yet if they were brothers of a darker color you'd have the crew in here making all sorts of ridiculous excuses and calling anyone who denounces them racist.
All races are artificial constructs, so making such a statement about Hispanics (a group literally defined as a race by a location and a pair of languages) doesn't rally mean much. Human beings are quite variable, so the only ways to define race are to make artificial and arbitrary tests or to define artificial and arbitrary ranges. This can be quite useful in describing fish, but not so much with humans who can travel across the world in a day and who interbreed between populations rather enthusiastically.Also to be clear, Hispanic is a relatively recently invented race that used to be included under "white," which itself was only created a few centuries ago and has changed meaning a lot of times since in significant ways. Irish used to be considered a different race more akin to American Indians, for example. There's no such thing as "true" white. Including Hispanic/Latino in "white" isn't a new thing, it's an old thing.
I'm not sure everyone in the thread has actually read the original link and realized it was mostly tongue-in-cheek joking, not a serious thing. Of course no one's defending these guys, that's not the point. The point was how easy it is to smear an entire race with the actions of a disgraceful tiny minority part of that race, some out of context statistics, and some "just asking questions" "politically incorrect" rhetoric.
Just came back from lunch. I had a Roast Beef Sandwich. Can't believe the guy asked me if I wanted White Bread.
The nerve of that guy.
You're right, I hate White Bread. I really do.
I only eat Ethnic Bread.
When I see White Bread in the store, I just want to punch them all.
Well, I basically agree with everything your wrote, so glad you did respond I guess? If you intended to disagree with something perhaps rephrase? Otherwise, good to hear we're in agreement.All races are artificial constructs, so making such a statement about Hispanics (a group literally defined as a race by a location and a pair of languages) doesn't rally mean much.

And responding via multiquote also brought up a Berzerker post I had quoted and then decided not to answer - and again, I could not resist . . .
So keep spouting all that noise about you guys being open-minded and equal in your criticism of all groups. I don't see it. What I do see are muslims being bashed practically everyday as well as other brown people.
Whenever we actually try to have some mention of the fairer skinned, somebody either claims that they don't do anything or that they are the most gentle, least racist creatures on the planet.
I seriously have no idea what you mean about fairer skinned being gentle OR less racist. Personally I think they're neither, that nowadays the racism is pretty much equal across the board.
