Sanding our assholes with 150 grit. Slowly. Lovingly.

You have all lost my respect

I expect you all to start working to earn it back immediately.

And if you don't know why, I'm certainly not going to tell you.

SILENCE. This is MY thread.

Oh, it must be because I posted some facts from firsthand experience again.

I better learn to say things that only agree with your narrowly defined view of the world, so you can't invent reasons to disagree with me.

Fuck you, Warner.

There. Do I have it back now?

Mark -

Your firsthand experience is IRRELEVANT! IRRELEVANT! Post a study that proves you saw what you saw! I want to see some footage, preferably with a documentary style narrative! Extra points may be awarded if you add a hip-hop soundtrack to help hold my interest, but no promises.

Flasher -

Almost.

TIME'S UP THAT'S ENOUGH.

I win the thread because I'm black.

Already tried it. After a long list of studies, all I got back was snide remarks about how the people who conducted the studies were "my heroes".

Are you pretending that anything I said actually matters? You're not playing this game right. There isn't supposed to be any scenario in which I could have won.

No but I'm supposed to maintain the pretense that there is.

Yeah, but you mucked that bit up. The only way to win is to invalidate what I had said previously, in which case, I also lose because I don't have the strength of my convictions. Or to be black, in which case, I still lose because I've been indoctrinated by whitey and I'm not really black.

I don't have to do any of those things. I don't have to jump through your white hoops, honky!

"Do you have any evidence at all to backup these so-called facts? You claim to know what you're talking about yet I haven't read any real evidence to support what you say. Apart from the Washington Post report, the UN investigation, Amnesty Internationals detailed study, the three thousand eye witness accounts and the fact that you were there at the time, what gives you the right to make these claims?"
