  • This is an example of White supremacy in action and hope the guy gets hung by the nuts. If a person is aligned with KKK, White Identity, Neo Nazi etc. then it is fair and reasonable to make the sweeping generalizations that ysumlin makes.

  • Ysumlin, you wrote: What is it with people who calls themselves white? Do they even not understand that the five race category was invented by them?

    People who call themselves White are diverse. To ascribe as you do to an entire group is inaccurate and unjust. It is also inaccurate and unfair to charge contemporaries with the actions of…[Read more]

  • It feels like ‘free speech’ is being thrown in as an argument where it doesn’t belong. If I’m not seen turning guests away from my home, does that mean I am legally obligated to play host to Latter Day Saints? Does that become their private speech in my residence? Admittedly, I’m approaching slippery slope territory. That’s not what the court d…[Read more]

    Yeah that is more indication of what is increasingly clear to me that nearly everything in the human sphere is BS. Just no integrity.

      You are not making sense. So you deny racism can come from Non-Whites? The people who invented race are dead! Racism, however, is alive and well. I brought up the topic of whether racism is equally abhorrent when it comes from the oppressed vs. the oppressor. I guess you are of the opinion that it is ONLY…[Read more]

              Ysumlin are you checking whether any of us are reading your posts? You've told us there is no White or Black person. We are all one. Remember? The logic is as bad as original sin's?

                        Robert the way you have framed the issue makes me think of Locke and his construct, the social contract.

                        Is it the state that has the power to decide what constitutes freedom? Everything an individual enjoys emanates from the state? Any way an individual is circumscribed is a result of the exercise of the state’s authority. Or are certain…[Read more]

                        I suppose default rights have to be distinguished from rights that are created legally and universally enjoyed like Miranda rights. Specific circumstances (being arrested) trigger the right to remain silent etc. Miranda rights were created as a result of past injustice. (Privileges are related but a different species.)

                        Robert, i suppose it is necessary to define terms before having a serious discussion. I think in common parlance rights are inherent and inalienable. Buying mustard is as aspect of commerce. That is a right of any citizen who has not otherwise forfeited the rights of a citizen.

                        I’m starting to wish a Philosophy of Law course had been among my philo studies.

                        Is this ever discussed in law courses: Is having a right the default unless it’s abrogated or limited by law?

                        In other words, I have the right to buy mustard, engage in recreational sex, or wander near and far unless some law takes that right away or lim…[Read more]

                        Maybe the USA will be divided (or ought to be) into two countries. The viewpoints of the majority right and left are so far apart that it might be the best thing. Beats civil war or the possibility of descending into outright fascism.

                        Unseen…Maybe not a direct assault but by taking past actions into account, it might color their decision in certain cases. That isn’t impossible, is it?

                        Not sure i follow you. However the scenario i laid out is so contrary to the fundamental notions of justice that it would be shocking.
