Lately, I've been reading My Awakening by David Duke, it is amazing. Most people are pretty ignorant about him and just dismiss the book as purely a racist bible. It's far from that. I recommend anyone on here to read it.

Yeah he sure "told me." He's just lucky I managed to understand what he was saying.
It's not like it really requires a whole lot of effort to type "Don't" instead of "dun," or to hit the shift key to capitalize the first word a sentence.
If it took less time/effort to type improperly than it does to type properly, I might assume that E-Rok is just lazy. However, since it actually takes approximately the same amount of time/effort, I'll just continue on with the assumption of stupidity. Whether it's the stupidity of intentionally messing everything up or the stupidity to not know how to make things right, it's still stupidity in my book.

I haven't read the whole thing, but I STRONGLY recommend that you put on your super-critical hat with this book.

Duke casually and frequently makes completely unwarranted leaps of logic and calls it science.  He gets away with it because there is a lot of science cited in his book, but that doesn't make his conclusions scientific - they are not.

Also note the apparent contradictions in terms of his own "scientific" conclusions versus the resulting social policy.

Certainly a book worth reading, but when reading books that are intended to mislead and distort facts (like this one), it is important to increase your normal sensitivity to logical faults.

He mentioned something about how brain size has an impact on your inetlligence. Which I thought was disproven a while ago. He then says that blacks have smaller heads than whites.

After reading this thread, I wish I hadn't. I can't even understand a lot of the posts, so it makes the opinion of that person even less important to read. Hopefully the thread can get back on to it's orginal track where it was a least somewhat intelligent.

Really, was that so hard? Typing properly really isn't as difficult as people make it out to be, and if you types as coherently as this in each of your posts, you wouldn't have these petty arguments.

I'm not even acknowledging your first part, trying to read it was hard enough.

Secondly, you believe different races are taught to hate us? Wow, you learn that in your version of the bible too? Your perversion of religion is what scares me about people. It gives some people a very bad name.

I'm proud to be an atheist tree hugger. I'm still not sure what the point is here.

We all have our racist tendencies and it's nothing that anybody can avoid. The best way to approach it is to always try to see other people's viewpoints. At the very least, you'll have a reason for hating that group of people. Hopefully with this mentality, instead of continuing to hate, you can rid of most of your dislike for different groups of any kind.

I hope you understand that typing with that new standard you set for yourself is the only way people will take you seriously here. The effort matters. If you're too lazy to type coherently, then we're only going to be too lazy to respect waht you're trying to say.

You're right, the thread needs to return to intelligent conversation. So go ahead and move on, but be careful. You're already on strike 2. For future reference, this is thoughts and opinions, often containing discussions not about paintball. They can get heated, you have to learn to have a cool head and take it on the chin or else you'll just get upset every time someone disagrees.

Seeing how racism still lives within our youth today is ridiculous. It scares me that people actually continue to use stereotypes as an appropriate means to judge people. That is true immaturity.

Alright if it erks people so much I will type properly. Now let it ride, please for the simple fact I would rather concentrate on paintball other than defending myself. Also I did not get mad about people disagreeing with me I got mad about people attacking me but no one else got a strike right mods? Not to mention you are right I am over it.

The reason you got strikes was because of the language, not mods favoring people. If I had made racist remarks I would have gotten a strike as well. The point of the thread was to discuss racism's prevelance in today's society. Obviously, it is still relevant.
