all but “immigrants out” are a good read, reading them for grad school in case anyone was wondering.

Just out of curiosity, what’s the major? It is politics or sociology? The topics sounds pretty conservative.

Sorry it took so long to reply to this. The major is history and the class was something along the lines of the history of immigration.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Rap Music's current Influcence on Kids

Originally posted by DrOctaganapus2:

Rofl really?

Anyways; since some mod removed it, let me re-post it in a “Less-Offensive” way;

Rap has made girls think being abused is right.
Rap has no real music value or meaning; just some African American guy making various and random ryhmes.
Rap is influencing kids worse and worse.
Discuss

Rap music has no real meaning, are you kidding me? I suggest you listen to non mainstream or underground rap where rappers actually rhyme about things other than gang banging, how much money they have, how many women they have fucked. KRS One, Mos Def, Jeru the Dajama, those are just three rappers that come right to mind when I think about rappers that actually rhyme about things that are intelligent and sometimes thought provoking.

Originally posted by vikaTae:

It is not even that Charlie. If you will note, the racism is directed at Mexican immigrants, whereas other immigrants regardless of their capacity of contributing to the country are ignored, purely because they lack the ‘undesirable skin color’.

Thus it is pure racism, plain and simple. Not only that but it is actively detrimental towards the country, as you wish to keep out those capable of contributing at the highest levels, because they were not born here.

So it is not only racism, but elitism as well.

What you describe here is literally eugenics in a nutshell except they went a lot further than just undesirable skin color.

It isn’t bad, just the fact that America was insanely racist towards immigrants during this time period and was worried about preserving their own “stock”. I don’t agree with much of eugenics other than that they sought to eliminate genetic disorders by selective breeding.

America isn’t racism towards immigrants, they are cautious. We want to ensure the country’s security.

I really don’t know how to address such an uneducated statement, have you learned nothing in this class of yours?

Topic: Serious Discussion / Nativism/Immigration

To the post above me, America had many reasons for not wanting a mass influx of immigrants, the eugenics movement which was prominent during the early 20th century was worried that immigrants were tainting the “stock” or the white race because immigrants were inferior and had undesirable traits. Along the same lines, Theodore Roosevelt was worried that the white race might become a minority in America because not enough white women were reproducing and “new” immigrants were known for having many kids and from this the white race might commit “race suicide”.

Topic: Kongregate / Dinowaurs Broken?

well the game worked fine today and i finally got my last badge i needed, that newgrounds trick of facing yourself worked like a charm, thanks to whomever pointed that out in the other thread.

Topic: Kongregate / Dinowaurs Broken?

I tried the solution of facing yourself on newgrounds for the ranked matches but yet again it takes forever to connect for a ranked match and it should connect seeing as how the only 2 people playing at the time were both me, putting this hard badge off until it was the last badge i needed sure is coming back to get me good.

Topic: Kongregate / Dinowaurs Broken?

The multiplayer game Dinowaurs never works for seemingly anyone anymore, I remember playing the game only a couple months ago but I tried to play the game a week or two ago and I waited in the auto match screen for about an hour and never left the matching screen. Another issue is the fact that you can only get the hard badge in ranked matches but you can’t even do that because of the aforementioned problem.

The developer of the game seems to log on once or twice a year now so trying to contact them seems like a lost cause.

hmm, it’s been a while since i looked at chinese history, probably should have looked over it again

Go play a game of dynasty warriors :3

Yeah, dynasty warriors doesn’t tell the truth more often than not, if you were to go by any dynasty warriors game than the most recent one you would be lead to believe that Dian Wei survived Zhang Xiu’s night raid, which is false, that Sun Jian foiled Huang Zu’s ambush attempt by catching arrows with his hands, false as well, and my personal fave of Guan Yu somehow surviving the battle of Fan castle seeing as how he was beheaded after refusing to surrender. So you can’t always take video games based on history as actual fact, although the most recent dynasty warriors is spot on regarding how it how actually happened.

For anyone who was a fan of jay z’s grey album, for the love of all things holy, buy this new wu tang cd. It’s the best cd i’ve heard in quite some time.

Topic: Kongregate / Rating Power

nicol, if i’m understanding you correctly, you can’t see the connection between rule of the wealthy and giving more rating power to higher level users? If anything, that connection should be clear as day, higher level users ratings count for more than lower level users, not necessarily rule of the wealthy but the concept is still the same.

Topic: Off-topic / antivir virus hoax

sorry if this in the wrong place. i was infected with this so called virus today and boy does it suck, this virus somehow prohibits the user from opening any programs at all and you get a phoney pop up virus scan program called antivir. what this does is it makes up supposed viruses on your computer and ultimately these viruses don’t even exist on your computer, the most disturbing part is that if you fall victim and pay 50 dollars for the fake program it only installs more viruses on your computer.

the following link details how to remove this virus if you do happen to get it.

Topic: Remnants of Skystone / Camp intruder first room

sorry to bump this. But i’m on the same mission and i can’t for the life of me make the jump past the vine that is up in the ceiling in the room where you have to land on the 2 platforms that are divided by 2 steam vents shooting across the room. i’ve tried everything but no matter what i can not make this jump. to further clarify the room i am in, there is an elevator lift but the mechanism you need to jump on is blocked by a huge stone like structure, i believe this is the room directly after the room with the 2 hookbills and 1 stinkbird.

Topic: Kongregate / Worst achievment cheaters

i hardly ever post but this accusing people of hacking without the facts to back it up has got to stop. so what if wiggles got 7 imps in a week did you ever stop to think that he may just be good at those certain games or he used a guide to get them? please in the future do some research before you go mucking up somebodies reputation, blindly accusing people is just going to end up in hostilities and that’s not what the forums should be about.
