That would probably just end up getting the thread locked, not that it won't happen anyway.

Ya know, I, too, once read Howard Zinn's A Peoples History of the United States and listened to a bunch of rage against the machine, and I saw the light. But as I got older, I came to see that everything isn't so "black and white"(see what I did there?).

I was exactly like you! Just two years ago I hated the conspiracy doubtless orchestrated by those in power and chanted liberal songs with delightful glee, denouncing all conservatives as racists, sexists, fascists, and anything else that ends in "ists."

It was strange, to learn that being liberal does not automatically mean being smart. Hm. I guess those who think they know the most are usually the ones who know the least, really...

I'm confused, liberals listen to rage against the machine? That can't be true, I thought it was only ultra conservative neo-nazi types?

Oh yeah, ratm is all about the radical left wing communist revolutionary proletariat nuttiness. They cater more to the angry, crazy liberals than the hippy dippy kind.

Haven't read it. Being anti-police state does not make me liberal (or socialist).

Helecio-I am just as "fucked" by affirmative action. Funny how you say playing the victim, then turn around and do the same. Love the assumption I am playing the race card for a race I am not.

I am not the victim. I have gotten away with shit right under cop's noses...funny how my black and hispanic friends (even right next to me) seemed to never get away with it. Then again, the more powers you give a cop, the more he will abuse them. Though I must say, the one time a Pentagon cop walked up to me (after 9-11), pulled me away from my grandparents and aunt and told me I fit the profile of an Arab (not to mention my time in Vancouver) pretty much made me realize things about state power and petty crime laws.

Racial profiling is endemic, and arbitrary laws like minor alcohol and drug crimes, the allowance of blanket search and profiling, etc allow it to be so. They also DO NOT REDUCE alcohol and drug use and abuse. So, um, if they do A, and not B (which is the point of it) what else does it do?

I also didn't realize that the allowance of a standing militarized army (ie modern police forces) was a "liberal" idea. Pretty sure it is classical liberalism (hence American conservative).

Edit-The hilarity of me saying this to a white guy with the handle marionberry and your avatar just hit me as sad but funny.

So I look like more of an idiot (all I said were most drinking laws were bullshit and give the police far too much power to selectively enforced)...were they DUIs?

Ouch. I'm lucky I didn't get a DUI when I was younger and dumber. In any case, good luck!

:shock: WTF happened in this thread.

If I see anyone who was doing it in this thread getting into AA/race debates in another thread like this I'm going to pwn them all. Please remember that mods can read things even well after they happen, and the fact that nobody's here to stop it doesn't mean it shouldn't stop.

A marionberry is a fruit - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marionberry

and my avatar is meant to show my love of soymilk.

I don't know why you would find my enthusiasm for a healthy diet either sad or funny. :|
