Kevin, Nmaginate, All I gotta say is, that Kneegrow is insane (CF). He's so effing non-sensical and self-hating, that he's giving me high blood pressure just talking to him, I think I'm going to stop while my health is still ahead, and I still have my sanity...... I wish we had an "ignore" feature around here so we could all put CF on our Ignore List.

Re: Exploring a Stereotype

That is a very good point. What exactly is "hyperaggressiveness"? For one person to be observed as more aggressive than another is one thing. For an entire group of people to be characterized as more aggressive there has to be a standard of aggressiveness. Do whites get to set the standard for everything that we do?!

I gotta run but, while we're touting some of their successes, has anyone noted that countries like Sweden, the Netherlands, and Germany are oriented much further to the left on the political spectrum?

I hear what your saying here, Huey. But, to be fair, most white women are not Klansmen (and if I meet one, dating probably will not be a topic of discussion ). The Klan is an inherently shovenistic group... they think that a woman's primary function is to serve as a brood mare for the state. I also suspect that most women are too smart to buy their crap anyway.

It makes sense if your understanding of what it means to be a human being has little or nothing to do with the body. He is talking in terms of essences, not accidents.
