I don't wonder. I can see there side of things, but being arrogant and snobby isn't really accomplishing much is it. I can quite easily empathize for them too, But they don't honestly have it ridiculously hard off. African Americans are able to look past things such as being enslaved and tortured for years and years, and not be extremely judgmental and uptight. Ofcoarse it took a lot of time and effort, But by trying to coexist and do the best they can to work together as one (Despite obvious bumps) they're accomplishing more.
For one reason or another, racism is seen to be inherently worse than sexism. I mean, sure, you wouldn't be able to get away with saying on tv 'women are inferior to men', just as you wouldn't be able to say 'black people are inferior to white people', but you can totally get away with being a sneaky cunt, and reinforcing gender stereotypes.
For instance, when was the last time you saw a tv commercial advertising remote controlled cars, and saw a girl playing with it? Never man. It's because girls are 'supposed' to play with barbies and their pink ez bake oven.
As for African Americans 'looking past things', need I mention the black panthers?
If they could try to be on the same page as all other people, and accept some cold hard facts, Then they'd be happier and people would be more open to them. I'm not going to try and talk something out with an arrogant snobby bastard, in comparison to someone whos polite and reasonable, But still drives in their point. Is that too much to ask?
Yeah man, because the world totally works that way :[. I don't know if you've ever seen politicians having a discussion in parliament, but I can assure you that it almost always results in petty name calling and abuse. And these are the people running our fucking country.
And as I said, I have nothing against womens rights, and the fact they're fighting for them. But they have a lot of the things they have complained about over time. Yet they are able to find another reason to make men the devil. I personally couldn't care less what is concealed behind your clothes, If your right for something, then your right for something.
Well, I'm glad that you feel this way dude, but if you haven't noticed, alot of guys still treat women as objects to be owned and collected, whether they like to admit it or not. All you have to do is go into the general forum to see evidence of this.
If a woman sleeps with heaps of dudes, she's a whore.
If a dude sleeps with heaps of chicks, he's a legend.
I'm not going to get anywhere in Politics if every time I want to pass a bill or whatever, and someone argues their point, I reply with a; 'That's silly, your biased and wrong, I hate your type'. Its not likely that the 'argument' behind that bill will push it to be passed. If I instead sit and politely yet firmly argue my point, It has a larger chance.
Really? I wish I lived in the world that you do, my friend.
