Since this board’s competitive advantage is a space to speak freely then why not have a genuine and non inflammatory discussion of Race

First off, as my thesis, I think the supply of racism outpaces the demand by a huge margin. There are issues much more prevalent like economics and technological changes that explain the differences in crime and schooling that are far more relevant to the discussion, but these conversations the same emotional firepower that race carries

Also taken as a whole, there are legitimate IQ gaps when other races are stacked up against eachother(which I don’t really find as compelling since there are so many inter group differences) and this is so verboten to bring up that there isn’t a conversation

Lastly, culture is so much more important than race. When you have a culture that fosters a combative attiude toward police and school you are in deep trouble

I just hate having it shoved down my throat 24/7. I’m a middle class white guy who’s hunky ancestors came here at the turn of the century and worked in coal mines and died from black lung when they were 50. I was the first person to go to college from my family thanks to parents who busted their ass and saved for me to go (I’ll be forever grateful).

All that being said, I don’t care about other people’s issues. I’m sorry if things aren’t going your way, but my family’s heritage has nothing to do with your misfortunes. Take responsibility, sack up and shut the fuck up.

Culture is far more impactful, but the race baiters won’t let you detach one from the other.

My only take on this, is that racism in every race is natural considering humans are tribalistic and have been using these methods to stay safe for thousands of years and that is just in human genetics. I’m not condoning it, I just think it’s part of human nature.

There are countries which are blatantly racist evidenced by their immigration policies.

The US is not one of them. But politics is a dirty sport, and the money involved mandates playing dirty pool.

This is extremely interesting. I did a deep dive on this a few years ago. Sadly, racists love to latch on to this kind of thing as part of a superiority argument. It completely prevents discussion but can explain a lot of social issues and cultures.

All you got to do is watch Chris Rock's standup. He lays it out perfectly. In fact, so perfect, he stopped using that bit because it gave ammunition for other races to reference.
