Naive? Hardly. I am a minority, I know exactly what I am talking about, don't assume my naivety when you have zero clue about me or my background.
There wouldn't be an issue if people weren't making a big song and dance about it. (Both for and against)

Way to conflate multiple issues.

The point that he is trying to convey is that there wouldn't need to be a Black History Month if people would stop focusing on various individualistic descriptors and started treating and seeing everyone as equals... Because at the end of the day, we all bleed the same colour of blood.

It's far from reverse racism. He wants equality.

And I fully back him on that.
Just like I believe all these LGBTQI+ "pride" events to be rather superfluous.
People need to stop pointing out their skin pigmentation, gender, sexuality... A person is more than those individual descriptors, they are human beings and should be treated and seen as the same as everyone else.

That is your opinion. I strongly disagree.

Morgan Freeman just has one of those "personalities" which allows him to get a message across rather eloquently.

We have taken your concerns onboard and will cite' them at a later date.

Yup, Morgan Freeman is exactly right. And he is one of the people who should know as well, not some random white guy.

This current SJW way of seeing people as groups and dividing them by their superficial characteristics is actually extremely counterproductive to weeding out racism and and other ills. Not only is it an absurd and frightening return to racial segregation (very literally in some cases), it actually *is* all those things that they accuse other people of. It's racist, sexist, homophobic and such. People are seen as groups instead of individuals, and that's actually pretty much the definition of racism. It only serves their worldview of victims and oppressors that they need to keep rolling, or their bottom will fall off. all this is based on some Marxist theories heavily applied, it's a whole can of worms in the academic circles that you can look up on Youtube if you like. The real world does not reflect their twisted view of things. These people need to keep talking about race and such and fanning the flames, because otherwise it might just happen that people forget about race and other similar characteristics, and treat each other as individuals.

You don't have to listen to them and just try to ignore them. I know it might be hard to believe but I suspect most of the western world treat people as individuals in their everyday life, this is just a fable spread online that people are racist. I live in Ireland, the first black man I seen in this town, besides a doctor or consultant was about 18 years ago and now it is filled with people of all races and not once have I seen racism between black and white nor has it ever been, besides for some Muslims who bring it with them.  

Just ignore them and treat people as individuals and they'll fade away if yoy don't feed them.

That's quite a naive perspective. Ignoring an issue isn't going to make an issue go away.

Is your conviction strong enough to bring this particular argument to its logical end?

Wait... you're racist? Huh... as a black man I never really got that impression from you, even in my lurking days, none of your posts seemed offensive to me. Ah well, you still seem like an alright guy and it's nice that you're improving, so thanks for the apology!

Love you, Rol. You're probably my favorite people on this site

Wait... are you saying Rol is more than 1 person? How many of him/her/it are there? :O

My currently active personality has awareness of two other Rols (and so do they), but there could be more. By the way, the three of us tend to get along pretty well for the most part.

That's great for the 5 black people in your country Rol, but Austria has more issues with discrimination against Slavic and muslim immigrants like Turks. I want to know how you feel about those groups.

I have first hand experience with bullying such people in person. I think what really made me start to question everything was when I saw someone go beyond verbal abuse; it was then that I began to realize who the bad guys are and that I was one of them.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I just jumped down the rabbit hole of Morgan freeman, wisdom videos on Youtube and I don't think I disagree with much. I love what he had to say about being poor and there is always a bus leaving, you can make something better of yourself in America. Race, IQ, degree's, none of it matters as long as you have the drive and that's why I love your country so much and the constitution and would fight to protect it. It has brought the world so much freedom and choice  even my country is a product of that constitution and the freedom I have today to make my own way and better myself without rule above me.

I'm black and I can tell you that there is no such thing as "how black people act". We are people just like everyone is people and are as varied as any other group of people out there. Thats one of the coolest things about being black is that you can be or act however you want. Black people are more accepting of others. We permeate all cultures. We don't all get along. We are smart. We study all different subjects. We have the biggest Ds (lol). We are awesome students. We are awesome athletes. We are competitive. We work very hard. We can be lazy. We have the best sex. We love to dance. We don't bake as fast in the sun. We can be summon aggression on a level you can only dream of. We run the spectrum from gangster to President. Some of us have issues. Some of us struggle but we are in general repulsed by ignorance. Being black is awesome! Yes there is historical hardships and reasons to be upset with being black (like not having any ancestry if you are American) but all in all I wouldn't want to be anything other than what I am.

Today is the one year anniversary of when I commented it was clear to me that not a lot of people on this site have had much actual interaction with Black people. Clearly, that is still the case. I default think of everyone on the internet as a white male as well, and I find that to usually be true. I guess it's all about mindset. I hope you all continue to come accross chill Black people in your lives, haha.

Happy anniversary! Anything you'd like to share? I'm curious as to what it was. As specific thread, a few different posters.......Help a brother out! Brother in this instance meaning human male.

It was a specific thread about PewDiePie using the N-Word on a live stream. The thread got shut down within a couple of days, and he had nothing but defenders on this forum :/

I can certainly say I've never dealt with racism, or atleast I don't think that's the reason behind any of the many antagonist I've dealt with. But yeah, white/black/gay/straight/male/female/etc. are all irrelevant labels used by lesser minds. I think the only two that actually matter in terms of judging one's character are asshole and non-asshole.

Very well said.

Ah yeah. I went and skimmed through it a bit. I keep my nose out of those types of threads for the most part.

Dammit Rol, I thought you were cool.
