Re: Islamic terrorism: More multiracial than one thinks.

This so called white German Muslim, was probably a Turk passing for white. Trust that. Germany has a big problem in their opinion with Turkish immigrants coming to their country. This has been going on for years. That is a European problem that is causing the hatred from the Turks, Arabs, Asians, and Africans because of the crimes of Imperialism and Colonialism. This is what is commonly known as reaping what you sow. Our people have made the mistake of confusing the methods with the...

I like to respond to this: Although the Seljuk Turks put fear in the western world around the turn of the millennium and became the very reason for the start of the Crusades I look at the one of the reasons for the Crusades...yes it is because the Christians wanted to convert all Muslims to Christianity but also to take control over land lost during the Islamic invasions. However, there are other reasons why. Cuz there were 9 crusades in all. However, during the height of thralldom in...

Re: WHITES BEING EVIL!!

'white' isn't a race in that term. It has always been a social construct and those with power and identifying white made the rules who is white and who not. Ask a Turk in Germany if he/she is regarded as white..

Re: WHITES BEING EVIL!!

I would agree that 'whiteness' is a social construct. It is contextual, social, etc. For example, historically in this country, there was a time that Italians and Greeks were not considered white. There is a whole literature on whether Jews (Ashkenazim) are white. I know something of the issue of Turks in Germany, particularly as it pertains to Gastarbeiter. But at most of the colleges that I have been associated with here, where the classifications are White (non-Spanish surname),...
