My Aunt is always trying to get me hooked up with Lebanese girls... they can be unbelievably gorgeous but they a bit too traditional most of the time.

Now if I can find some type of Lebanese hybrid like Shakira or something to that effect I would go after a Lebanese girl in a heartbeat.

Does your family not give you shit for not liking your people? Everytime we visit 90% of the conversations are about how my mom didnt marry a Lebanese man.

the ex-pornstar chick from Head On was real hot ... but she may be German, not Turkish, or some sort of 1st generation type affair ...

It's frustrating because these are the people I'm supposed to assume are not ignorant or racist, liberal types like you. What you're doing in this thread and the other thread I deleted was playing on the old ''they all look the same bit.'' It's really insulting. Now there are two ways you can reply to that, the racist way and the non-racist way. I'll see which one you go with should you choose to reply.

yes yes, they arent "races." thats a nimrodian kind of thing to get down on someone for, you know what we meant and you know we knew it didnt strictly mean that

i agree that such a thing as youre describing (this kind of suggestive racism) exists and that explicit, conscious intention alone doesnt count for everything, but i dont think this guessing game we have is racist at all. i mean of course its technically racist because race (ethnicity, shut the fuck up. "ethnicist" isnt a word like "racist" is) is exactly the grounds were discriminating between these people on, but not in the pejorative sense you mean it. east asians do indeed look very similar overall but differ in a few kind of interesting and intangible ways and its an fascinating exercise to test your perceptiveness for something like that. honestly, its about as innocent as anything like this can be, but you just reflexively assume the most horrible intent or net result of anything that takes anything to do with "race" into account. you have to one day accept that all youre doing is just taking things to the other extreme.

but i do know what you mean. when someone says "hey, dude, you just jewed me!" or when -- bear with me here -- people use "nigger" so flippantly in rap music, there is a racist subtext to it all and it does push the overall issue in a certain direction whether they intend it or not, i agree. but you fail to realize that there is indeed room for discussion or, yes, even jokes on things that 1nclude "race" without having the whole thing spill over into any kind of dangerous territory. you just seem to make no distinction whatsoever

i mean, ok, let me just practice some much needed concision and settle this all with a simple question: do you think its ever appropriate to 1nclude race into humour? if yes, give me an example of a tasteful, wholesome, safe racist joke or joke that has some kind of racist colour to it. where do you draw the line, if you draw it at all

yeah they make me feel guilty for all kinds of things. actually they deliberately speak something to me in the language knowing that i dont understand just to make me feel like a buffoon and ostracize me

My best friends are Chinese, Italian (dark sicilian) and Mexican, with myself also being Mexican. Every now and then we make cracks on our own or each other's ethnicities. I think I would draw the line depending on who your audience is and who you are. None of you are my friends and no one else here is friends with each other so I think A line is drawn somewhere here.

I'm also up for making fun of Europeans in any context or form.

I dunno man, I had to take a class in Mandarin in grade 12 before I went to China for 5 weeks, and I'm pretty sure I remember the first few characters for numbers as in the second picture.

Unless by "chinese" you mean Cantonese, and if that's so, then I'm as lost as anyone else.

you big on falafels and tabouli and the like?


lebanese food is honestly the best food in the world. every other cuisine can suck my fucking dick. i cant even think of anything i prefer more in the long term. in a "desert island" situation id take some yogurt, falafels, tabouli, hummus, and spinach pies and be done with it. i know this stuff isnt exclusive to lebanon but, from my dining experience, they do it the best by far. shit im drooling just thinking about it

i really dont know, thats just google talking. i just googled "chinese characters" and that was all


how was china? where did you go? id really love to visit there actually. especially now during the boom. although, yeah, that boom is going to stick around for another 40 years, but this period is especially unique. tautology, yes i know. communication is such a fucking chore

when i went to japan all the people i met told me they couldn't tell whether a person was japanese or korean or chinese just by looking at them. somebody told me that chinese people always talk while koreans are always silent though (when they're in japan obviously)

I think we've managed to prove that they do not all look the same, as none of us seem able to distinguish shit.

Actually it's Korean, Chinese/Japanese, Chinese/Japanese. You could even call those last two Korean as well I think since they used to use Chinese characters (and still do use some)

Shparticus 04-06-2006 06:49 PM

Don't be such a damned showoff, you damned showoff.
