I think you mean "adept," not "adapt."

I think "apt."

"Apartment"? Idiot, that makes no sense at all.

I realized that. It was a typo. In fact, I was going to correct it the moment I could get to the video when it was up. So your comment was unnecessary and has probably ruined this video forever.

You should feel ashamed.

Mm... yeah.

The 1 star was lost right about when he got to the part about the religion which advocates violence being sensible.

You see, we are the field negros and our socio-capitalist society is the Master. Cena_mark is probably the house negro.

I think middle class people who continue to vote for republicans are the new house negros. Comments?

I would argue that the metaphor doesn't apply in that sense.

I think what Malcolm X was saying was that blacks who put with oppression and racism, but tolerate it because they've managed to eke out a fairly decent existence by being subservient to it are house negros.

Republicans and conservatives AREN'T actually getting much in terms of tangible benefits from supporting the system they support, they just do it because they cannot comprehend doing things any other way or are motivated by other things (bigotry/racism/etc.), which makes them even stupider and more willfully ignorant.

But what about magical Negroes?
HankFinch - 2009-11-28
I don't think they're real. I've rubbed the bellys of a lot of negroes and nothing happened... well, I got the shit beat out of me. It might look like magic, it might taste like magic, but brother, it ain't magic.
