If white people cant embrace black culture. That means black people can't embrace white culture. So no Viking tattoos, tarot cards, country music, runes, classical music, tattoos of gypsies, wine, beer, flamenco dancing, river dancing, plaid, ect.
The world wouldn’t miss those things at all anyways. Besides Flamenco dancing is Spanish and has flourished through the Spanish Speaking countries so its reformed and loved in the culture. FYI you can’t own a design in fashion.
May I add that this ignorant anon has no idea what they’re talking about. First of all country music evolved from gospel music made by none other than black people. Second of all if they’re going to claim ” tattoos of g*psies” they should know that g*psy is a racial slur used for the romani people who can be considered PoC. Lastly, the first evidence of wine being used was in China around 7000 BCE. But I’m sleep.
They got snuggies
Wait did he said CLASSICAL MUSIC? I’m sorry but black people made that too sooooo yeah.
Also in terms of classic music, one of the greatest classical composers, Ludwig Van Beethoven, is thought to be a man of African descent whose history, like so many other was white washed. His mother was a Moor, who are a group of people from Northern Africa I believe. Often times he was described having darker skin and a nose thay was flat and rather wide. Emil Ludwig, in his biography Beethoven, described his face as having, “NO TRACE OF GERMAN.” He also wrote that, “his skin was so dark that people dubbed him Spagnol,” meaning dark-skinned. HIS STORY not history, you’ve always gotta dig a little deeper for the truth
*edit I also forgot to mention that the origins of beer can be traced back to ancient Egypt. Also there’s a difference between embracing another’s culture and cultural appropriation.
No, Beethoven wasn’t black. I can’t believe people are still spreading that on here.
heeere comes the bullshit squad again
also have fun without computers, cars, planes, or anything industrial if you’re so happy living without things that came out of european and white american culture.
My daily reminder that I have every reason to be happy that I’m german, so I don’t have to share a country with people like OP:
I’m hooked on Wargame:Red Dragon atm. I finished my Operation Barbarossa campaign with HoI 3 and it got boring afterwards :/ playing black ice tho
Being historically accurate is boring, though! Try something crazy, like..axis australia :D
or try to defend yourself as France or Poland from Germany. Those always make for fun games. It’s even better when you win. Though Ive never beat Germany as Poland…. yet.
And you going to invade the USA as this neutral Japan? That’s always a good goal.
Oh god, that’d be a bit too hard for my taste, lol. ALthough France might be possible.
And I just annexed Australia and New Zealand, but sadly the US joined the allies in 1939 for no apparent reason, and if I attacked now I’d be fighting on two fronts in India and agains the US. I’ll see how things unfold, if vichy-france happens and gets french indochina, I’ll attack them and annex that, and if Germany succeeds against Russia, I’ll join in right before they surrender and grab a chunk of siberia
Do we think that is Islam’s fault, or that Islamic societies tend to be post-imperialist societies that were, until literally 100 years ago, under the control of 3 oppressive, racial empires and that we replaced them with… well, 30 oppressive, racial empires.
I tend to fall in the “Islam is only bad because muslims are poor” camp.
Islam is bad because it’s at the core of the religion. It’s not always muh oppression, their culture simply reflects their barbaric religion. While I have nothing against the individual muslim and I don’t doubt that chances are they’ll be a good person, I very much despise Islam itself and the violence and barbarism it calls for.
Well I don’t want to take the islam apologists’ side, since everybody who follows me at least 3 days knows exactly what my attitude to them is, but I think the problem is a bit more complex: personally I think that the most important (not “the only”) factor that makes the western and the islamic civilization impossible to coexist in one place is not really the religion itself but rather how fundamentally they vary in the attitude to it - most importantly if it comes to the relations between religion and state, but also if it comes to the position of an individual in religion of course. I think indeed most things that generate problems here are of a cultural kind, meaning there could be a culture based on islamic religion which, after undergoing changes analogical to european age of enlightenment and following eras got rid of theocracy and developed society similar to contemporary western one if it comes to social relations (dealing with the more violent parts of the quran interpreting it as a metaphor, for instance - which is exactly what christians do).
However what is dumb in the islam’s apologism I’ve mentioned is that situation I described is what could happen. It is not the reality. If I’m talking about my fear of muslim radicals in Europe, don’t tell me christians used to burn people on stakes too - I’m not living in the 16th century and I surely will not live in the 26th or whenever you are expecting your beloved muslims to civilize. Talk about here and now.
Well, of course, I agree with you there. The best example would be the secular state in Turkey Atatürk established, and I look up to that man for what he did. Sadly, Islam is becoming a political force again and Erdogan and his fundamentalists are slowly but steadily eroding secularism and pushing towards and islamic state. It’s possible, but it’s rare, and more often than not the general population of a muslim nation neither wants nor supports those secular institutions.
One statistic sums up why The New York Times suddenly stood up for legal marijuana
The racial bias of marijuana arrests is one of the New York Times editorial board’s key arguments for repealing prohibition.
The logic is simple. In the 40 years since the current ban was enacted, black and white Americans have used cannabis at comparable rates.
Bad for everyone. Worse for black people.
These things always make me chuckle..this makes it seem like suddenly, poor innocent black people are arrested, when in fact, they are arrested for doing something illegal. If they were thrown in jail for nothing, then there would be something seriously wrong, but if thes just can’t help it but break the law, then i have zero compassion if they do get arrested, like anyone else caught breaking the law would. It’s a personal choice, no one here gets thrown into jail for something they didn’t choose to do in the first place.
Well of course. If you break the law, it’s reasonable that you should be put in jail.
But I believe this is highlighting the fact that if a white person and black person were to commit the same crime, the black person is more likely to be arrested. They’re both breaking the law.
The big problem here is that anything is a crime. I don’t believe marijuana possession should be a crime, among a ton of other minor things.
Well, if you look at the overall crime statistics, black people are more likely to commit crimes, thus police will be more likely to search them. Not fair to the individual, but it is based on numbers and thus logic dictates to pay more attention to those more likely to be engaged in criminal activity. Either American police will stop doing that, which would theoretically make the streets less safe, or they continue doing so, which again is unfair to the individual black person, so we can’t really win here, either way.
And I massively disagree there, I believe no illegal drug, be it heroin or marijuana, should be legalized. We need to keep society free of those things and have a means of punishing those who still buy and sell it.
The United States is preparing to sell the Iraqi government 5,000 Hellfire missiles through a proposed $700 million deal intended to equip Baghdad with additional power as militants from the Islamic State continue to wage a campaign across the region.
On Tuesday, the US State Department issued a statement announcing the preliminary approval of an agreement that would give Iraq a new arsenal of AGM-114K/N/R Hellfire missiles and associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support “to help improve the Iraq Security Forces’ capability to support current on-going ground operations.”
WOW WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG
There’s no way ISIS could capture them…that would be…
I’m waiting for the day ISIS paints a bunch of Abrams black and fights American troops with them.
Stop selling arms to these idiots and let them figure out how to defend themselves - if they feel like they’re actually in danger if they give up their posts, maybe they’ll do their job and fight back.
Exactly. Or if you want the money, sell them shit that’s better than what they have but no threat to us, but with shit like this you just know that terrorists will end up with it and Obama will be like “Well shit, learned about that from the news”
Sounds about right.

you know you’re a fucking nerd when you’re drooling over IBM mainframe specs at 11 in the evening
5.5-6ghz chips and up to 120 of them, 3tb ram okay i want one please and someone to pay the power bill
edit: comp would be faster than the internet, lulz
What the ever living fuck would you need 3 tb of ram for
Probably hosting the universe
20 years from now we will look back with 3TB of RAM PC’s and go “Man, how the loving hell did we get ANYTHING done with only 8GB’s of RAM?”
It’s not like people haven’t forgotten only 15 years ago 512MB RAM was a ‘lot’ of RAM.
and “hello world” is probably going to use 8gb+ of ram because no one will care about optimization anymore
