Topic: Serious Discussion / Obama VS a Muslim: Who do the republicans vote for?

No political figures have good policies. If they do, they’ll forget they ever thought of them when they’re elected and their puppet masters have a chance to finally flex their puppet arms and fist our USANUS for another four years, after talking so much shit they’ll never live up to. Kiss a few babies, flash a smile.. “HEY I’M THE SAME AS THE LAST TWO OR THREE PRESIDENTS BUT I’M BLACK. VOTE FOR ME!”

Topic: Serious Discussion / Crime and color

Blacks comprise about 12% of the population but commit over 50% of the homicides.

The data you provided does not support this statement.

Blacks are 2.1 times more likely to commit simple assault and 3.1 times more likely to commit aggravated assault, 7.3 times more likely to commit sexual assault, and 36 times more likely to commit robbery. These are huge differences, considering proportionally the amount of blacks as compared to whites. Overall, blacks are 7 times more likely to commit crime.

As of the 2008 NCVS, blacks committed 83% of the 520,000 violent crimes. This shows blacks are more likely to target whites then whites to blacks.

Given that your very first claim did not match the data that you yourself provided, your credibility is not sufficient for me to accept these claims on faith. Provide the data that supports these claims.

I’ll listen to my major senses and real-life experience over any statistics, whether my perception-based beliefs be validated or refuted by them.

I believe that people can be conditioned to become something that they naturally would not be due to foreign cultures, but where do you think the social behavior of these foreign cultures come from?

They had to stem from an unspoken collective behavior and a natural inclination towards a specific train of thought/mindset. Where do these Asian cultural “standards” come from, if their culture is uniquely their’s? From their natural self-restraint and generally non-violent, passive, mature nature. Didn’t come from any of us, that’s for sure.

Magnetic Fields – Old Fools

I disagree. To me, it means that quite a large number of people would like if they’d actually heard of ‘em. You rated it fairly high, so I’m going to assume you actually listened to it and liked it. I don’t throw that term around for every band I like, just the ones that have much greater musicianship than they do marketing skills.

Topic: Off-topic / Scary things that happen in your day to day life

This is more weird than frightening, but I often experience profound feelings of deja vu and if I avoid glancing at the time for awhile, I’ll usually casually check it to see that it’s 3:33 or 2:22, 1:11, 4:44… One of those.

I usually take that as a sign that my life is going according to plan, so apparently I’m supposed to be up at 3:33 in the morning making pointless posts in OT.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Is suicide just as bad as murder?

Who’s going to reprimand someone who took their own life? They’re obviously not gonna be sticking around to face the consequences..

I think it truly takes balls and a total fearlessness to willingly terminate one’s own life – That individual is acting against their innate desires of survival.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Why do people kill themselves?

Suicide’s a permanent solution to what is a temporary problem – unless one can somehow rationalize it to be the only option, not sure how. Even at the end of the day, no matter how shitty my life might be, I’m thankful that I’m alive and unharmed.

What am I saying? My life is fucking awesome, and I personally love myself too much to even think about killing myself.

Topic: Off-topic / whites people say that blacks and other minorities are always complaining about racism

As a white male, if I was to go to, say, Africa, it’d be ludicrous to expect the people to fully accept me as one of them. Doesn’t matter if I’m a tourist, doesn’t matter if I live there.

I’d say that’s about right, regardless of where you go or what your racial background is. Always better to be a part of the majority rather than a minority on the outside looking in. Populations (naturally should) focus on themselves, not on foreigners, few and far between, trying to assimilate.
