    Could it be…………………………..trolling?

    What’s the point of posting this? I don’t know , do you not find suicide hitting record levels newsworthy or discussion worthy?  Does it offend your precious little feelings that I bring up that had the biggest group committing suicides had not been white males there would be national attention on the issue?

    All, please excuse the cost-post.

    @NS, since you apparently are avoiding the “Streetcar Discussion with Walter Tejada” thread, here’s a short synopsis of my last post.  Nah, that’s all I am saying as I don’t want to hijack this thread, and interrupt your train of thought.

    It is newsworthy, ARLnow posted the link for it.  Is this your way of saying people aren’t paying enough attention to you…a white male?

    The story referenced on the main page is about Virginia, hence lack of “national attention”.  That white males are more likely to commit suicide is not new, so maybe that is why it does not generate the national coverage you seek: 1982.  Perhaps if the suicide leader board was not topped by white males that would be an issue worthy of national coverage.

    In any case, you don’t want to discuss the issue, you want to use the issue to argue about special privileges of various groups you disapprove of and perceived discrimination in general.  You could probably find a way of dragging in that point of view given most any statement as a starting point.  Try this one: I like blueberries.

    Suicide is a national issue. I assure you that white males have the highest percentage of successful suicides in every single state.

    @halj:  I’m on the fence about blueberries. I have a container of blueberries in my refrigerator, but they are about two weeks old.  Why is it I buy them, but then forget about them?  Maybe I am a “blueberry” liberal?

    Suicide is a national issue.

    So?  Not every story on the topic is national nor every aspect worth national attention.

    I assure you that white males have the highest percentage of successful suicides in every single state.

    OK.

    Will do.  I like blueberries.

    Blueberries are delicious.  They give me a reason to live.

    Perhaps if blueberries were distributed freely to white males that would bring the suicide rates down and compensate for years and years of discrimination – 40 berries and no stems.  Would that work for you, n*******e?

    Yes, white men are so evil, so it’s okay. Let’s ignore that millions of them were drafted and sent away to wars where hundreds of thousands of them got killed. Such evil privileged people!

    Yep, you figured it out.  ”I like blueberries” is secret code for “white men are evil”.  Nice work, n*******e.   You forgot something: Check your privilege!

    Funny how liberals typically abhor collective punishment/guilt except when it comes to checking your privelege! Then you are responsible things for other people with your skin color did a long time ago (lets ignore different skin color people doing the same thing), even if your own ancestors were being killed in pograms or something, you are just as guilty! Check your privilege!
