Suicides in Virginia: White males most likely to do it

    Ok, and does that bother you so many white males died in those wars?  I think you should know that during the Civil War, this country was not as diverse ethnically as it is now.

    NS, do you believe that white males are discriminated against and are currently persecuted ?

    Four pages in…I’m still clueless as to what he’s whining about.  But….troll’s gotta troll I suppose.

    CO: Your questions don’t relate to the topic. I do believe liberal interest groups blame white males for every problem in society. And yes, things like affirmative action discriminate against white men, but asian men even more.

     

    Do you deny stuff like this when liberals like Chris Matthews defines racism as “when one race, the white race, thinks it is superior to all others”? Liberals like that are saying that only whites can be racist.

     

    Also is it not discriminatory if examinations are thrown out if not enough of a certain protected group passes said test, say for promotions in fire departments? The test is racist? The ones who studied and did well get punished for their hard work. You think that is cool?

     

    The reality was, the military was segregated until about 1948. The bloodiest wars in US history were fought prior to 1948. It was white men, supposedly privileged, who were drafted, and sent to their deaths. Some privilege! Remeber to ignore the hundreds of thousands of them who died when you feel so guilty about your privilege.

     

    Check your privilege!

    I’m with wimmer201 on this one…I have no clue what he’s trying to say.

    Its funny how you talk about white privilege, but fail to mention slavery.  Slavery Privilege!…right?

    Is there something you want to talk about?  Because it just seems that you want to rant about white males being punished.

    Do white liberal male blueberries have to check their privilege?  Are white liberal male blueberries being discriminated against?   OK, I’m baffled.  Produce is now gone “racial” with “discrimination”, “checking privilege”!??!  Since when did blueberries become privileged white males?  Jeeze Louise, I know I’m getting older and its getting harder to keep up with the latest trends but sheesh, I was just in Harris Tetter this past Monday buying produce and I didn’t notice any particular fruit or vegetable having any special privilege over any other product item or any particular fruit or vegetable being discriminated against by any other produce item.  Are we talking about those privileged suburban white soccer moms that I noticed were clearly picking peaches over blueberries two to one, thereby clearly showing their blueberryphobia and intolerace for blueberries?  I don’t know, I think the produce section is safe, no privilege/discrimination, etc. between difference produce items against each other.  The tomatoes and bananas seemed quite happy next door to each other and welcoming to the leafy greens across the aisle.

    Now the cheese section on the other hand….now that is a hotbed of prejudice and intolerance.  I saw a wedge of cheddar cuss out and push a persecuted little round of Rondele right off the display.

    That’s an interesting take… non-whites should be thanking the US government for saving their lives due to its past discriminatory practices.

    I fail to mention privilege.

     

    First.. Are all white people responsible for that? Second, that discounts the fact the first “slaves” were white indentured servants in the Americas. Also the term “slave” comes from the germanic were sklave which was used to describe slavic people, who were enslaved. You make the assumption that only non whites have been enslaved throughout history.

     

    Now are all white people responsible for slavery? I’m fairly certain my ancestors were in eastern europe, living in ghettos, until the late 19th century. What is their culpability for slavery other than their skin color?

     

    Were there any blacks involved in the slave trade such as finding people in Africa to be sent to the slavers? Are they in any way also responsible?

    no, I think you’ve mentioned privilege plenty of times here.

    And it should have been obvious to you that I was speaking about slavery here in America during Civil War times since you know….you brought up the Civil War.

    Why are we talking about this now?  What does it have to do with suicide rates?  Are other races responsible for so many white men committing suicide?

    You’re still being cryptic and continuing to ask questions, which isn’t helping here.

    QUESTION: EVERY problem?  Yes or No.

    @NS wrote, “Do you deny stuff like this when liberals like Chris Matthews defines racism as……”

    My answer is that one particular person does not speak for me.

    QUESTION: Since you believe that one person can speak for another, who speaks for you?

    @NS wrote, “The test is racist?”

    My answer is: tests are inanimate objects.  one can not ascribe such properties as “racist” to inanimate objects.

    @NS wrote, “military was segregated until about 1948. The bloodiest wars in US history were fought prior to 1948″

    My answer is that blacks  fought in the US military or on behalf of the US military in segregated units way prior to 1948. And, it took years for units to actually be integrated. Even then blacks were represented way above their percentages in the military in infantry units that faced the most danger and most deaths.  Suggest you read up on the history of blacks in the armed forces. You are simply ignorant of the facts.

    Furthermore, I found it a privilege to serve in the military and protect the rights and liberty of Americans. Not as you say, “Some Privilege!” in your sarcastic mocking tone.

    I think his point is that, like the blueberry, white males do best when living amongst diversity.  Absent a diverse environment, white males are plagued by many and varied (mental?) problems, as evidenced by this forum, and take their lives in disproportionate numbers.  n*******e – anthrobotanist.

    You are ignorant of the facts. In fact black units complained about not being used in combat. They were behind the lines for the most part. The French used American blacks in combat during WW1 where they fought very valiantly. However european countries had a history of using colonials as cannon fodder for the worst situations.

     

    I’m talking abouto draftees. Do you think it is a privilege to be drafted and sent to your death?

    @NS asked as if the answer was ‘no’, “Were there any blacks involved in the slave trade such as finding people in Africa to be sent to the slavers?”

    Again you are ignorant.  There is a wealth of information as the info below illustrates.

    From wiki “The Atlantic slave trade or transatlantic slave trade took place across the Atlantic Ocean from the 16th through to the 19th centuries. The vast majority of slaves transported to the New World were Africans from the central and western parts of the continent, sold by Africans to European slave traders who then transported them to North and South America.”

    Unfortunately the Africans had adapted to the slave trade and begun to sell themselves to the European nations. For example, the Doloman tribe became wealthy from the traffic of slaves-their tribe’senemies were the subjects of the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

    @NS, your dribble gets more trivial every time you repeat it.  I suggest……blueberries.

    NS, please tell us when and where your next K l a n   meeting is so we know to avoid it.

    n*******e, how did you get from current suicide rates to the draft?

    And the award for question of the day goes to halj!  Congratulations, buddy!
