    It's a paradox. Those who do nothing to resolve problems because they are afraid of offending someone offend those who want something, anything, done about those problems. Joseph Heller, an explanation please!

    It's just a crying shame that guys like Swizz can't call black people n****** anymore. Let's pray to Jesus, the Messiah of America, that our culture turns around to save the Swizzes and their heritage.

    Ha!! Nailed it!!

    There is so much National Outrage that we have to stay up later at night and wake up earlier just to make time for it all. We squeeze in three or four outrages in the morning before breakfast, snack on a stream of offendedness between breakfast and lunch, and by the time we finish dinner in the evening we can scarcely remember what we were outraged about in the morning.

    This is our culture. This is our country.This is what we’ve become.


    Truly, our society’s bellyaching sissies are in an elite category. They are like the Navy SEALS of offendedness. They demonstrate unmatched skill, dedication, and dexterity in imagining new and exciting ways to be insulted.


    But why? Why are we in this permanent state of outrage? Why are we constantly dismayed and disgruntled and disturbed by every little thing?


    This is a riddle anthropologists will be debating for centuries to come. They will look back at our culture and wonder what sort of cataclysmic event turned generations of Americans into spineless, translucent, liquefied puddles of whimpering mush. They will argue amongst themselves and write many scholarly articles to explain how there could have ever existed an entire society of finicky, overly emotional schoolgirls.

    Yeah, I can't remember the cat either. Hmmm...

    My boss at my last job lamented the fact that he couldn't use the n-word. He also referred to Chinese as chinks and embraced the notion of Obama as a monkey. Of note, he honestly thought he was not racist.
  • flytrapflytrap Banned Posts: 1,659 Senior Member
    Of course not, or he'd know the word was "slopes", not chinks. Even though my best friend is Black, my wife is Asian and my kids half-Hispanic, I daresay we are ALL racists to a degree.

    "Fear of the other"

    FWIW, my personal experience both here and abroad, including South Africa, is that it is more about socioeconomic class than skin color. My very upscale neighborhood in Joburg was, in theory, whites only. But no one gave a **** about the black family across the street or that my landlord was Taiwanese, both having bought the properties through businesses they owned that were not obviously owned by non-whites.

    In the three years I lived there the only times I saw the fellow across the street was to wave when coincidence had us opening our gates to depart or return, he in his BMW 745, me in my private Corolla or office Camry.

    I don't think they got the memo up here. My friend took this pic last week at the Kremmling Demolition Derby.

    I was unaware that Colorado was a southern state.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I thought Chicago was the armpit of the nation? Along with Milwaukee.
  • swizzswizz Senior Member Posts: 2,550 Senior Member
    Nope, it's Kremmling. That photo solidifies it for sure.

  • Milwaukee is the country's puckered ****.
  • NZ IndicatorNZ Indicator Senior Member Posts: 9,626 Senior Member
    Milwaukee is nothing more than a north Chicago Suburb separated by an imaginary line on a map these days yes?

    Lots of Milwaukee folks where I live...except they stay at this place...
