*still can’t get a date*
Why do I get the vibe she's the type of person to get upset at someone sitting with their legs too far apart on a subway?
Not really... It is good that we have stopped accepting sexism and racism. A dangerous trend is when people like Liam Neeson admit they were racist or whatever and want to change my super leftist friends will not forgive them. Nelson Mandela believed in putting the system on trial not each individual person. Without a path to forgiveness there is no reason to change. So if we want to win this one we have to accept non-criminal converts with open arms.
@BennMann, the Neeson thing is a whole can of worms. I very much believe that his intents in that situation were rooted in a sort of vengeance and not in actual rooted racism. It shouldn’t excuse it; actively seeking violence isn’t okay whatever the context and the argument that nothing ever came of it doesn’t really offer much. However the important part to me is that he admitted it. People overlook how unbelievably easy it would have been for him to never say a single word about it. He instead offered it as a teachable thing. I respect who he is now more for it. If anything it underlines that humans are emotional animals and how important it is to be able to recognize, control, and learn from that
@TamblanTheBrick, i agree it’s a double edge sword, I believe he mention that about seeking revenge when something bad happens to you just perhaps for the sake of his career he should have left some details out.
@megamanx181x, I agree if he wasn’t looking for backlash but I’m not sold on that being the case. I at least hope he wanted there to be discourse around it (and to an extent there has been) and I appreciate his honesty in the matter
@TamblanTheBrick, he wanted to show how anger and rage could cause something evenly and paint a group of people with a broad brush. However when you think about it he could have literally killed an innocent black man had someone cross his path. It may have been to exclude the last part to get the point across
@megamanx181x, right. My big takeaway is that it wasn’t rooted in a deep prejudice. He grew up in Northern Ireland and while saying you’re the result of your environment isn’t an excuse, it should be taken into account. He seems overall like a good guy who had a moment (read: period) of weakness and I respect him for owning that and learning from it as opposed to the media and much of Twitter which seem perfectly willing to crucify him
@TamblanTheBrick, it’s hard for people to just read everything through, it also obvious he wanted to share it because it ate away at him. Terry crews gave a nice response on how he sees this was his fork in the road moment in life.
Kinda hard to not be a Nazi with SJW using their SJW Newspeak
@Jakobian, by their logic, I'm a Nazi, and at this point, I might as well be considering I feel like I need to gas them
Yeah sounds easy!! Except when speaking to someone is equivalent to whipping your dick out and being any right of center makes you Hitler reincarnated
I was under the impresaion that people arent bjtching about it cause its unfair. But more the fact that even if they are the furthest thing from it the radical opposition instantly paints them as one. Its not unfair not to be those things whats unfair and down right stupid is the fact that even if you are furthest from it just one slightly opposing view makes you one.
But the bar to be a nazi is very low. Don't believe in the wage gap? BAM! Nazi.
