Idk if anyone’s noticed (lol) but I’m filthy mad about this election. Not just because of Trump himself, but because the whole thing represents, better than anything, one of the world’s most significant problem in recent years. We are moving away from our Enlightenment ideals - tolerance, progress, and liberty - with fanfare. Under the guise of saving western culture, we are threatening its core principles. We are neglecting the lessons of history that millions fought and died for: authoritarianism is a dangerous (yet insidious) thing, vilification of minority groups is wrong (demonstrated,...

85 percent of the time, I like to think the world's a wonderful place. we have tecnology and nature all rolled into one delicious sushi-package, we all have different place to visit and new things to learn. most of the time, the world's a very pleasent, innocent place to be. But 15 percent of the time, horrible things happen. people crash planes into buildings, tecnology is faulty, nature is being destroyed and the odd teenager sometimes drops a baby bomb on her parents and boyfriend. but only very ocassionally...

link, the only feedback I received revolved around definitions of racism. Sure, the concept of reverse racism was partially what the 기사 was about, but it was also about what problems nonwhites have that whites don't face. It was also a list of grievances that need to be fixed. Those points were completely ignored.

When 당신 say that reverse racism doesn't exist, white people completely ignore the problems you're saying nonwhites face and the changes 당신 want to make to fight them. Instead, they do nothing constructive and just argue on behalf of whites. We - people on both sides of the debate...

A conservative friend of mine had a very apropos status update on 페이스북 this weekend: "People from the left and the right adore Jon Stewart because he says the things we think, no matter who's listening." And inspired 의해 his rationality, as well as Jon Stewart, I decided to hold my own "rally" to remind people that just because you're the loudest, doesn't mean you're the majority.

I hear a lot of crazy accusations about Obama that are both unfounded and unfair, and it undermines the legitimate arguments people make against him. In this sensationalized world of celebrity tabloids and YouTube,...

The prevailing prejudice in the United States in this post 9/11 world is against Arabs, specifically Arab Muslims. I'm not saying there aren't other "isms" at play in the US, 의해 any means, but 당신 can't deny the repugnant anti-Arab sentiment that has permeated its way into American culture. For the ignorant American, it is just another reason to hate another group.
