But i was at the beer store awhile back and there was a young white dude catching up with some elder family member who asked about his girlfriend and he used the word "white-girl shit", "typical white-girl stuff" and "spoiled white girl".

I didn't even know what "white-guilt" was until recently, but apparently it's a growing mindset so I think it's absolutely pertinent to hear what African-Americans think of it. And really, I think the lady is bang on. Black people don't wanna be made the victim, black people don't wanna be seen as a charity case, they simply wanna be treated equally.

I don't know what to do with a situation like the current one where everything is so completely polarized and yes we do see it here, which I why I think it's not going to amount to anything to post this stuff here. I once saw a video of hers and it made me absolutely sick to my stomach - I couldn't be more on the complete opposite of everything she says, in such a way that I can only guess she does it simply for the attention. You use the term 'independent journalist' very loosely I suppose - as this is just someone who rants hateful shit in front of a camera. This was the one who said HELLO! EVERYONE HATES FEMINISTS! right? very eloquent indeed.

This exciting movement of populism, science deniers, misinformation, back to the fifties culture, xenophobia and nationalism and sometimes downright national socialism is definitely something we see everywhere. I'm sure it has a lot to do with the fear of terrorists and it's going very much the way terrorists would like to see it: more hate and more fear and people who are only proud of what's defined by borders and afraid of what's outside of it. Putin and Erdogan are nationalists, bordering on fascism, often crossing that border: putting all journalists, teachers and judges who even vaguely criticize the government in jail. Italy is going to be absolutely fucked, they apparently want Mussolini back. The extreme right is coming up in Germany again, with people having pride of what happened in WWII, Britain is getting absolutely fucked over with all kinds of investors / employers leaving London en masse, Poland and Hungary are getting absolutely terrifying; it goes on and on. How the fuck you think you're on the right side of history is beyond me.

Ugh what use is this anyway
Look man, I truly am not trying to cause trouble and I realize Netphoria has underwent a very concerted change over the last 1-2 years. I think in some ways it was necessary and in some ways not.

What I always loved about Netphoria was the political diversity. You had the truth movement, the independents, the libertarians, the conservatives and the liberals and very recently things have transitioned into a liberal echo-chamber... I mean jeeze, I almost feel like I'm carrying the flag because everyone seems to be in such a self-made bubble around here. I just don't think it's healthy... And there's definitely something bubbling under the surface with the culture and I don't see anyone else paying attention to it or even acknowledging it.

I mean, if it truly upsets people, I'll lay off. But it's hard to ignore what's going on around the world in a major way.

Who's talking about racism? the woman who's work I've been diving into is about the opinion from an African-American mindset. She is a black woman. The Democrats are the kings of identity politics and it serves their interest to have the urban community struggle and be a charity case. Like Candace and even Kanye West have been saying, you look at these urban meccas and they're all being run under Democratic leadership.

This is the glaring truth that Democratic voters are going to have to come to terms with

of course, you are fine with stereotyping people from oppressed minority groups without batting an eyelash, but when you hear someone stereotype people at the top of the hierarchy, you feel uncomfortable. You are scum

White guilt is a term that's been around for decades. You just don't know jack shit about anything.

So glad you've informed us that you are an authority on black people though and you have the right to speak for them in terms of what they want. The only black voices you listen to are the self-hating ones you have cherry picked because they back up your racist attitudes. When was the last time you spoke to a black friend about racial issues (do you actually know/interact with black people)? What was the last book you read on social or political issues by a non-white author?

You have seriously become a hardened racist in the last few years, maybe you always were, but you now display it openly and with pride. I guess Donald Trump gave you the courage to be the evil piece of shit you were always capable of being, huh?

Speaking of Trump, where is this man's Nobel? Oh, he scuttled the talks with North Korea because Kim Jong Un effectively tricked him and cut the United States out of the picture altogether? Oh geez, how embarrassing. You know what would be even more embarrassing? If everyone was predicting this a month ago and you were insistent he was about to lead us into a golden age of peace because of his diplomatic adeptness. Gosh that would be embarrassing

I'm not racist at all. I'm simply saying that there's some severe mental illness going on when you see white people who have never done a racist thing in their life feeling guilty about being white.

And don't be so reactionary about the North Korea thing. Trumps a master negotiator. Anyone with any political knowledge knows that these compromises and agreements work in ebbs and flows.

It made me laugh a little inside to read this thread right after reading about how Trump was just found in violation of the First Amendment by a federal court, effectively losing a civil dispute to "seven Twitter users" for blocking them.

does anyone watch homeland?

the new season is quite funny in how it depicts tensions between the conservatives and democrats (in a fictional way though, but there's one character who presents a show called 'the REAL truth' and is eerily similar to Steve Bannon lol

In happy news, the first celebration-worthy outcome of any vote in what feels like forever - hell yea

Quote:
Exit polls published after Ireland's referendum on abortion suggest a large vote in favour of liberalising the law.

Polls by The Irish Times and RTE suggest about 69% voted to repeal a part of the constitution that effectively bans terminations.

Those taking part in Friday's referendum were asked whether they wanted to repeal or retain a part of the constitution known as the Eighth Amendment, which says an unborn child has the same right to life as a pregnant woman.

Broadcaster RTE's exit poll suggested 69.4% in favour of the Yes side and 30.6% for 'No'. In Dublin, 79% of people voted for repeal, according to the RTE poll.

An exit poll released by The Irish Times points to 68% Yes to 32% for 'No'.
