Do pardon the late reply. :)

Don't mention it :)

I think there's a fundamental flaw in calling Western culture "white culture", and we should stop calling it that. A culture pushing toward success through hard and rewarding work shouldn't be bound to an amount of melanin in skin. That's just stupid at best, racist at worst.

We need to find a way or a slogan to stop the "acting white" down-knocking culture. Something short to paint on a protest sign is a low-hanging fruit. How about "Acting White? No, just being successful."?

Ah crap you're right, they use sponsored links, and people going on any subreddit with sponsored links make "impressions" that make ads on those subreddits more expensive to buy. So reddit gets more money with more visits regardless of adblockers.

I find it ironic that "off-by-one" is a common programming error.

I find it hilarious that Trump once again is a laser pointer for the media cats, telling a 99% true fact and having the media fact-check him and actually talking about it.

I find it sad that libs will read the headline only.

If only Corona-chan had information that could lead to the arrest of Hillary Clinton...

The Democrats are trying to destroy America and are in league with my enemies, the capitalists

Here's another crazy pill: no economic system has lifted as many people out of poverty as capitalism.

Pure capitalism isn't good. Crony capitalism is awful. Capitalism with a slight nudge of fairness from the government (government which derives its power from the will of the people, obviously), I get behind.

I find it very interesting that a dev actually typed out "Negative" in his code, instead of simply letting a negative number be printed out with a minus sign. It's like he knew a negative number could be printed out there despite the fact only a positive number should be printed out there.

I see, thanks. I think I'll soon delete this failed meme.

Ah shoot. I played myself in assuming since there were tickets, attendance was behind a pay-wall. Was there any point to the tickets?

Protip : quit [watching films]

You are missing out on culture masterpieces because you are looking down on a medium.

Whoa whoa whoa. Hold your horses. Words matter, and what you describe isn't what you name.

"White privilege" and "White supremacy" are two very different things, the first being an excuse for calling for equity and lawlessness, and the second an ideology having the side-effect of wanting to cleanse the world of non-white people. Both I disagree with.

What you describe is "Western Culture", and it happens that Western Culture is embodied by a majority of white people. As an idea, Western Culture can be experienced by anyone regardless of skin color.

Black people being "accused of acting white" is a cultural issue among people who happen to be black, leading to looking at those accused as dirty, and keeping them down. This is wrong and to be addressed, but it's a whole different issue.

That's not the goal. The goal is to keep the victim status, to crybully people into accepting any demand, into submission. When the oppressor disappears, the victim status disappears, the power disappears, the responsibilities come knocking "hey, now you have to fend for yourselves". They don't want that!

Sending officers after mayors have already caved is the definition of "hitting yourself". They need cops to prove their criminality is retaliation against police brutality and racism. Don't send cops and see them fumble.

First give the population a taste of lawlessness, let the popular pressure make the limp mayors resign, and then reestablish law and order.

Until it is addressed, we are all a little less human.

The dehumanization has officially begun.
