Slate’s Josh Voorhees raised an important point about all of this: “In the big bucket of Trump-sanctioned racism, a mock war cry from a guy who introduced the guy who introduced the candidate is but a drop. Still, if this were anyone but Trump we were talking about, he or she would be pressured to condemn the remarks. Trump, though, has dulled everyone’s senses with a year’s worth of controversy, so this barely registers.”

And that’s a shame. Casual, everyday racism should be shocking, not routine.

Excellent link and quote there. Agreed 100%.

The Force Awakens: My Review

Overall, I thought it was a very good movie. I think that the plot, story, and characters were done very well. It was a great introduction to the new trilogy. Now you say, what more could a fan ask for? Well, I could ask for a hell of a lot more, but I think TFA delivered. I love the new characters that were introduced, and I think that most of the older characters were handled gracefully. It really does feel like a Star Wars film, unlike the prequels. The think that really solidifies it for me is how it feels better every time I watch it. I think that’s a characteristic of a really good movie. The same applies to the soundtrack — every time I listen it gets better. So, to conclude, I’d give the movie solid eight out of ten.

Talk about missing the point.

Us white folk should not be telling black America that they should “get over” something. We certainly have a right, and frankly an obligation, to point out when other whites are doing that very thing.

THIS!

Big fuckin’ deal. If it were the opposite, literally no one would complain.

Well, this reinforces the general “idea” that black children misbehave more than white children.

It didn’t reinforce anything because no one noticed and no one cared.

Just because you don’t notice doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

Bull-fucking-shit. It only reinforces that idea to paranoid cretins who already see racism everywhere they look.

Well, it is everywhere we look.

It’s that stupid atheist channel. And I don’t like the usage “SJWs” either.

I should teach astrophysics. I haven’t gone to school or nothing but I’m an adult thus I’m qualified. I’m going to make education great again!

Sharp commentary.

I’ve always wondered what is the basis of that puzzling belief…

Which belief?

The belief that a racist, hypocritical, unintelligible and unqualified prick is somehow better than someone who is qualified but is only a pandering and lying bitch.

#1, I think it is awful arrogant and ridiculous to constantly harangue Trump as “racist” Nobody truly knows what is in his heart or actually in his mind and I haven’t really seen any evidence he is actually a racist, despite his comments about sealing the borders, the completely taken out of context “Mexican judge” comment, and his pretty much unclear and unrefined statements about Muslims. Unless they’re marching around in the KKK or are vocal supporters of Louis Farrakhan, you can’t rally know in their heart if they are racist, so I’m kind of tired by this worn out, overused accusation that has really gotten to a point of being the new “boy who cried wolf” type of finger pointing.

ALOLL!

#2, Hillary is as hypocritical as any other human being, including Trump, more so than your average person actually since she is a career politician. I mean, she’s surrounded by guys with guns, but she doesn’t want you to have any protection in the form of guns.

So, if she’s as hypocritical as any other human being, then what’s so bad? Please give me evidence of Hillary’s crook behavior. And, “she’s surrounded by guys with guns?” WTF‽ You realize that’s almost every person with a high stature in the U.S. government? And pretty much every government?

#3, Trump is pretty intelligible, so this is a moot and odd point. He isn’t Boomhauer from King of the Hill.

Intelligible doesn’t be smart.

#4, what makes him unqualified! He is an American citizen over the age of 35. Furthermore, like him or hate him, he has been mostly successful in his life, despite some bankruptcy and the like. Plus, he’s at least made money from the free market.

Qualified doesn’t necessarily mean able to do something. Yes, many people are able to become a surgeon, but may not be qualified to.

Remember how I get paid per forum post? That leaves me a lot of free time to watch every anime ever. Including the new stuff.

Unfortunately that doesn’t include the good stuff, as there isn’t any.

Doing this, however, would require a lot of money if you wanted to obtain these legally. If you would like to pirate every anime, bandwidth is the limiting factor. Let’s say that high quality rips of anime are around 15GB. Let’s say there are about 7,000 anime movies in existence and about 14,000 anime tv show episodes. This is around 315 terabytes of data. Downloading this over an average 30Mb/s connection would take an enormous amount of time.

I don’t pirate anything. Have you seen my post count?

You would probably outrun your budget pretty quickly.
