As for you, what post of mine warrants this insult? And if you disagree, how about asking me a question instead of joining in with some dude who doesn't contribute? And why are you 2 allowed to dish it out but I can't give it right back?

Remember the thread: "Please Read: Personal Attacks will Result In A Ban"?

Contain your temper before something sad happens.


Some random poster insulted me out of nowhere, so he was asking for it as far as I'm concerned. If that gets me banned, so be it. His post is right there in front of our eyes, so I don't see how my post is shocking.


Just reminding you to be careful. Try to be nice to someone and this is what you get.
For a while we had a number of people get banned for what other posters thought were personal attacks.
Some, I agree were personal attacks. Others, just felt it was back and forth.
Some posters actually admitted they goaded the person into making the poster "react' to their comments so they would get banned.

How do you know it was an insult?
The "random" poster might just take what you posted back as a real insult and report it to Roland.
You didn't even name the "random poster" so it looks to me that you did a kneejerk post in response, not thinking it out.

So cool it down, be nice, and enjoy the ride.

What insult, and who is dishing out what?
Read my above post and figure it out.

Yes sir! You can instead direct your order to the person who insulted me out of nowhere. Otherwise, mind your business.

This book seminar thread is great! In case anyone got the wrong idea "White Rage" is a book title, not a thread activity suggestion.

In other words, you're going to keep up with what you do?
If you can't take a friendly warning, don't blame me for what happens.

Who sez we're all wong?

Seriously tho - good question. Certainly not me - I view "white" and "black" as more cultural standpoints than race anyway. Race is pretty much a racist concept.

From a post on twitter...

"The governor of Virginia had to declare a state of emergency because a bunch of armed white supremacists plan on storming the Capitol on Martin Luther King Day but please tell me more about how white supremacy and gun violence arenít real problems."

No white rage. These guys look like they're having a nice club picnic they even brought tiki torches to make smores and sing campfire songs

This is why I have very little tolerance for folks who ignore these issues, mainly white nationalists. That picture is from 2017 not 1964.

I was reading about this and came across something.

ďOn a Facebook page organizing the gun rights demonstration hosted by the Virginia Citizens Defense League, several commenters expressed frustration at Northam's move to restrict guns from the Capitol grounds. One wrote, "This is simply a move to infringe on not only our 2nd Amendment rights but our 1st Amendment rights as well."

When I read that quote I could have sworn Iíd found my way back to whipping post. Where does the 1st Amendment say you can organize with the intent of intimidating and demonstrate violent behavior?

If anyone finds the concept of white rage a joke given what happened in Charlottesville less than 3 years ago, they are akin to holocaust deniers. Delicate, delicate snowflakes who start to melt when they see white privilege being challenged.

The tiki torches and screaming idiots are indeed disturbing, and certainly as bad as 1964 or 1864 - "White Rage" shows far worse: the cool calculated systematic overt oppression, all done legally in the capitols - denial of education funding, deliberate social hamstringing of blacks well into the 1970s. Truly chilling.

"White Rage" is a mind blower, this stuff is RECENT. And all over not just in the South at all. Has anyone else here checked it out?

The governor is trying to prevent a redo of Charlottesville riots where Trump said there were good people on both sides. Do these people in the picture look like good people on one side? Got any idea of who they will support for president in this year's election?

The governor's actions for this weekend until Tuesday have been documented and are more than justified.

I'm going to pick it up again...Yeah, some of this stuff still goes on in terms of housing discrimination.
It's from 2010 but did you ever check out the Michelle Alexander book, "The New Jim Crow"?

With your most logical "guess" what % of the U.S. population do You feel this type of mindset represents?

Outspoken racists 10%
Quiet, closeted racists who don't march, probably 30% or more.

Seeing as there are still policies in place to discriminate against people looking for fair (up to code) and affordable housing, this mindset has obviously permeated the American subconscious. So much so that some people look for excuses to not denounce schmucks like David Duke or the League of the South....

"White Rage" isn't about a mindset - it is a breakdown of cold hard facts from legislative records. Better to check out solid reporting on figures showing e.g. deliberate funding disparities for education, not small numbers either, funding for black education in some areas at 10% of white into the 1970s, housing as lukester pointed out, open resistance in state legislatures to integration into the present day.

No point in guessing at demographics of a "mindset". Even less point in discussing it with folks who's only interest is angling to shoot down info of which they are willfully ignorant. That mindset is certainly an individual right. Encouraging it in others is toxic.

Tell you what, read "White Rage" and then we can debate. It certainly has flaws, but I guarantee there is some material that is undeniable and will give anyone but the most hardened bigot pause to consider how little they are aware of 20-21st century race issues.

Sorry, that is exactly what it is, nothing more than another label.

"Willfully ignorant"....Too funny

Nothing could be further off my radar. It takes zero effort on my part to treat everyone I encounter with kindness and respect, until they venture off the path with the use of labels for behaviors they find "offensive"...

Your mileage may vary...

Ok, well we certainly don't have to guess at your "mindset", looks like a concrete data point to me.

Would you go on any thread on any other subject to declare that you had zero interest in it? No of course not.

From your past posts you would not do the same thing on a thread on say a book about the Jewish Holocaust, you would support it or at the very least not go in and crap on the thread. A book about systemic racial inequality in America, here comes the troll dook.

The "Jewish Holocaust" is a Fact.

"White Rage" is Absurd & Cockamamie.

Nice try though

"White Rage" is the title of the book. The book is chock full of facts, some of which would surprise even you.
