Four minutes in and white genocide seems like the best of ideas possible.

Because we all know genocide based on a single race is always justified...

This shit absolutely sucks but the answer to abject racism is not even more racism - esp. to the point of killing an entire group of people based on race especially when you were trying to prevent that in the first place.

I really hope you were joking with that.

I am at least 73% certain he's reacting with the visceral anger that this sort of thing can bring out in a person who is appalled by wanton injustice. I like to think that, if I had the ability make these peoples' insides boil slowly over the course of days, making them scream in agony in front of their whole community to let their fellows know what was in store them as well ... I like to think I wouldn't actually use that ability.

Look at the planet, white people are wiping themselves out, no intervention is necessary.

I refuse to feel bad about it.

HarrietTubmanPI
So racism is okay if it's justice? You know what they say, an eye for the eye leaves the world blind.

Also, white people aren't really 'disappearing', it's that races all over the world are mixing more now creating more racial diversity. Brazil is a great example.

You know, you might think your actions are justified, but replace your word 'white people' with 'the jews' and it looks pretty ugly.

Visceral responses to this kind of thing are understandable, but they in no way excuse irrational and horrible responses that make things equally worse.

To say white people are distroying the world would be ignoring chinas and indias rapidly increasing polution and CO2 output.

Also; Russians never had black slaves, only white slaves.

Bort
HarrietTubmanPI, you're being obtuse, or contrary, or something. People become incensed when they see something truly horrendous, and they vent by saying stuff. Until you actually see me tooling around in a time machine with a microwave pain ray, your worries are stupid overblown.

A short ways in and I noticed something:

1) Alabama's new immigration law is very similar to Jim Crow laws and it doesn't sit well with my stomach. The laws blacks went through also seems to have a parallel with anti-immigration, too, since most victims of anti-immigration legislation seem to be those who are also brown.

2) The southern prison system owned blacks and used them for labor to make money. Now the entire American prison system is mostly black or other minorities, and the entire prison system is used to make money by 'hiring' prisoners out for next to nothing so they can make an obscene amount of profit off of human labor.

This book is amazing, btw; well worth picking up.

I really want to see this in its entirety...its fascinating that it covers a subject that isn't covered in schools nearly enough except as a footnote.

I thnk there's a typo in the description. 'Are' isn't spelled 'were'.
dead_cat
I say "were" because this practice is no longer limited to the south.
