of gathering resources to affect positive social
change in a community.

For I am but a voice from the velvet black calling to you across the
gulf of our mutual incomprehension.
We shall speak of heresy tonight.

I'm not taking any calls tonight. Last week was interesting, but this is not
what I set this program up for.

Hubris. **Expound**

Streaming was supposed to get this done. With only 30 people listening, can I
get anything done? I do not think so.

A guy here at KEOS made it clear that you do not want to DO, you want to
listen and be entertained. That's not what I want. Life is a full contact
The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya
She stands up and says as a transfer student that she wants to meet
espers, time travelers and aliens from another planet.

She is a complete babe, but is unapproachable. He starts obsessing on her.

* Scrunchie in her hair - color

So he strikes up her conversation

The old part of the school is where the clubs are.
Define Baka... To act stupidly or to be mistaken stupidly in the face of
contrary data.
Karl Marx was a Parasite. Borrowed money without any intention of paying it
back. He was in essence the equivalent of a mistress for Frederich Engels.
He supported himself as a writer, but was never paid much... A vast injustice
by his standards. Wordsmiths were the ones who should be at the top of
society, not capitalists.

Human nature is mutable and the New Man is possible.

50000 years ago 3000 humans existed on the East coast of Africa who are the
ancesters of all humans alive today. That is the best guess at this moment.
Slavery has been around since forever. Guess when the last nation outlawed
slavery... Saudi Arabia 1963.

What if Europe had never existed OR what if Europe had been wiped out by the
plague in 541 or 1347? Would slavery have disappeared? That's baka. Britain
outlawed slavery in 1830 and started pushing hard for its eradication in 1840.
The United States joined the battle after the Civil War. Slavery would still
exist were it not for the Dead White Males. Saying anything else is baka to
Jim Crow is probably the worst portion of our history in the United States,
because it was pecularly American idea. 1890-1964.

Damages the aether of the community.

o It had to have laws backing it up. We knew after the Civil War that this
type of behavior was immoral. **EXPOUND USING Following**

o It served no one any good. It just looked that way.
o forestalled mechanization
o Forestalled investment in the South
o Stand with the Nazi or not.

o The Sun Belt was born.
JFK's inaugrial speech of 1961.

High IQ does not make you superior or inferior. There is no correlation
between success in life and IQ. This is heresy. **EXPOUND**

James Watson, 1962 Nobel prize for being co-discoverer of DNA, made some conroversial remarks about Blacks in Africa.

The 79-year-old geneticist said he was “inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa” because “all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours - whereas all the testing says not really.". He said he hoped that everyone was equal, but countered that “people who have to deal with black employees find this not true”.

He says that you should not discriminate on the basis of colour, because “there are many people of colour who are very talented, but don’t promote them when they haven’t succeeded at the lower level”. He writes that “there is no firm reason to anticipate that the intellectual capacities of peoples geographically separated in their evolution should prove to have evolved identically. Our wanting to reserve equal powers of reason as some universal heritage of humanity will not be enough to make it so”.

He claimed genes responsible for creating differences in human intelligence could be found within a decade.

Have You Bashed a White Male Today?
By Kyle-Anne Shiver
While I was a teenager and still enthralled with my own generation, the Boomers, I truly believed that we were heralding a new and better human nature. We were going to stamp out prejudice, discrimination, and every other foul practice in the hemisphere. No more bashing folks of color. No more negative stereotyping for females. No more blonde jokes, fat jokes, handicap jokes, divorce jokes, gay jokes or Polish jokes. Human nature be damned. We could all be nice to each other if we tried hard enough, if we just had enough determination.

Here we are forty years later, and it seems to me that all we've really accomplished is an exchange of all of our old prejudices for a new one. The demographic group that now gets it full on the chin at every turn, in every public sphere, is the lone, white male. Christians, especially the Catholic Church, are also an approved target, but that topic is for another article.

So we haven't gotten any better as human beings. We simply changed targets. And almost the only ones among us left with bull's-eyes upon their heads are the white males.

I happen to have quite a fondness for these guys. My father and grandfathers were white males. I have a white male twin brother. I've been married to a white male for 37 years. I count a number of these guys as friends and neighbors. So, it just doesn't sit right with me when, almost everywhere I turn, I see the guys I love most getting their stuffings beaten out in jokes, television commercials, movies, books - heck, all over the place. It's so PC, you know.

Nowadays white males are stereotyped in movies and ads as either beer-guzzling, practically illiterate rednecks or as overly sensitized, emasculated wimps. One would be hard put to find a good, old-fashioned, John-Wayne type male anywhere but on Spike TV. My husband claims he needs to watch Spike occasionally just to remind himself that it's still somewhat okay to be masculine in public.

But I had better fess up myself a bit here, or that husband of mine will call me a "lying hypocrite" behind closed doors. I have, on a scant few occasions, used my protected status as a female to either pick fights with men or win them, especially when in the company of other females. Okay, it's been more than a few times, but far less than a thousand. And I plan to give it up this year for Lent. Really.

Bashing white males with impunity is every bit as un-Christian as all the other generalized bashing. Racism. Sexism. Homophobia. Etcetera, etcetera.

When it comes to the white guys, the one thing that seems to have escaped our notice, though, is that if not for all of our white-male ancestors, there wouldn't be much of a civilization here for the rest of us to climb aboard. These men get bashed up and down, day in and day out, for shutting out people of color and women, for not allowing them to take any of the leadership roles. But that's only one way of looking at it.

The other way would be to pat these guys heartily on the back, and give kudos where kudos are due.

The fact is that the world was quite different 2 and 3 centuries ago. Slavery was an institution that stretched back to Biblical times, without skipping a beat, and was rampant around the world. The British and the United States led the abolition movement for the rest of the western world, and is still on the front lines in the battle to eradicate the last vestiges of the dastardly evil. The truth is that white males did not invent the institution of slavery, but they were the first to abolish it. That ought to count for something.

Many American white men were willing to fight and die in a bloody civil war, fought largely over slavery. And many more gave up segregation without resorting to another all out war. Those things wouldn't be anything to brag about in a perfect world, but perfect this world has never been. And I think we ought to take at least some pride in seeing black men and white men, and black women and white women standing shoulder-to-shoulder in every profession. That's not a shabby accomplishment within a single generation.

Our men marched this country in a steadily advancing civilization, from an agrarian society, to an industrial one, to a high-tech one, in which the jobs requiring rigorous physical labors, to which men were far better suited, have become outnumbered by positions requiring more brains than brawn. Because of that, more than the feminist movement, women are able to participate much more fully in the workplace than ever before in history. If our civilization had not made that leap, and provided so many ingenious inventions that cut so much time and labor from homemaking chores, women would probably still be largely left out, simply because of our natural physical limits. I say we ought to celebrate our men for such a huge accomplishment. Certainly no other poeple in history have done as much.

Now before I get an inbox avalanche of complaints, let me state for the record that I understand as well as anyone that the white guys didn't just roll over and throw down the red carpet for all the people of color and us women to join in holding the reins of power in this country. There was quite a bit of nudging, some of it pretty forceful.

However, there was no outright war. And put into a historical perspective, American white guys stand heads and shoulders above their foreign counterparts and predecessors.

So, from now on, before you bash a white male, stop to think about the other side of the coin, and ask yourself this:

If not for all those white guys who conceived of this Nation, who built it, fought for it, protected it, developed all of those inventions that brought progress and a greater standard of living to more people than any civilization in history, where would the rest of us be? Perhaps not all that well off.

Instead of bashing the white guys, we all ought to be thanking them, and get on with making an even better America. So, I say, don't bash a white guy today. Buy that man a beer!


I tried to state that the man was mistaken, then I got sidetracked.

Who has this guy been dealing with in his career ***EXPOUND***

Why is this view so awful?

Too much IQ is debilitating.
