MeowWe will never know who the Danish director of the single movie Bjork has been in could be.

Unless I'm misreading her, she is saying that she walked away from this project and was able to do so because she had no real aspirations as an actress. No?

What's the matter Looka, can't handle your heroin? Also, this spring my best friend from highschool died from a fentanyl overdose so my recommendation would be to not do opioids. I hope that helps!

MeowIn a twist no one on the planet saw coming, Terry Crews is talking about the time he was sexually assaulted by a Hollywood producer.

I thought for sure you were joking.

I wanna know who the hell it was.

Yeah, like wtf? Pick your victims with a little more care.

What's awful is that Crews realized that, in the situation where it happened, there was still nothing he could do.

In the past when I've been groped by a gay dude, it's some drunk friend of mine and I blow it off because it's not a big deal to me. I've also groped some dudes in my day, and it was also not a big deal. But I would never, ever, grope a woman. What's up with that?

... like a family of fucking fuck pigs. It's the only way to suck through the pain. Out of respect, there will be no women allowed in this thread. LI, please look away.

boozeSo wait, Jesus died for my sins, but then he was raised a few days later? So, like Jesus got a long weekend off for my sins?


Yeah, I've never understood Jesus' "sacrifice" for our sins. Crucifiction sucks but hundreds were also crucified, and didn't rise up a few days later. Like Jesus did. And we're supposed to think he bore enormous pain for our sins. Uh no. Why not the other hundred crucified? Why isn't Spartacus our Jesus?

Thanks Jesus but my (not my, not that there's anything wrong with it at least as a non-theist) 20 years of heroin addiction or being a forced prostitute for 20 years is uh...well, not enough suffering?

A tortured folk in abu ghraib who dies? A youngling in Cambodia or Iraq or Coruscant? There is a disparity between the Catholic Church and others between "original sin" which means everyone is born a sinner, even kids, who would go to purgatory. And as opposed to more progressive (or not that yet just originally so) faiths, which allows abortion fetuses or children to fly into Heaven. I don't think any current faith allows non-human animals into Heaven.

Anyway Jesus the person seemed a cool cat imo. The cult around him is ridiculous though. I think a few idiot Mountaineers on K2 or Everest died in a few days, in pain, to death. Probably a few Jews in Buchenwald. Probably a few black Americans in the past to lynch mobs. Probably a few Chinese, Rus, and Europeans died at the hands of the Golden Horde. Probably a few Chinese at the hands of Japanese. Probably a few Iraqis, newly, even post-Albright. But I doubt any of them after a few days flew to Heaven.

And I imagine a lot of suffering people would accept a few days more if it means being the new Jesus and ascending to Heaven and no more pain. Why the fuck not if all it takes is a few days of pain, then a demigod and no pain.

ooooooh, so much a sacrifice. Fuck you Jesus. But aside from that (religion), I think you're a cool cat.

You know that everyone just scrolls past this wank parade, right?

DetrimentalI'm not arguing against that or anything, but don't you think on such a touchy subject as race scientists can't be biased? I mean they're human, flawed just like anybody else.

Scientists can be biased, and many biased scientists have attempted for centuries to justify their racism through pseudo-quackery about head-shape and blood impurites. ?Or more recently like the research of the Pioneer Fund used in The Bell Curve. ?But despite their enthusiasm and efforts, it just doesn't stand up to peer-reviewed scrutiny.

A person is not a racist for acknowledging that Africans have darker skin pigment. ?Racism, as a concept, is based on differences of values that are more relevant to character: intelligence and morality. ?We unfortunately have centuries of racist literature for examples. ?No one says that Africans are inferior because they are physically different, but because they're dumber, more corruptible, less virtuous. ?These attributes are not determined by "phenotype".

Oh you're taking what Dyne said literally. Dyne didn't mean that racism is the belief that racial phenotypes cause someone to have certain characteristics. But that those phenotypes can be an indicator of certain characteristics that are just as hereditary as said phenotypes. Well I think that's what he meant anyways.

I take him to be saying that racism is the belief that there are inherent characteristics to humans that are predicated and solely defined by racial phenotype, because that's what he said. That's different than what you are saying he means.
As it happens, he's wrong, because hating Muslims, for instance, is racist.?

Actually lots of racists make the argument that blacks are physically inferior, and that they are dumber et al. because they are physically inferior. So just change your post from "no one says" to "millions of people across the planet say" and, hey, almost not a shit post Janson!

The point that you're probably trying to get around to is that racists, like Neo Con, who claim to take issue with "black culture" while claiming that they aren't racist because they don't overtly state that blacks are physically inferior are still racist just because their racism doesn't point to physical difference.

DyneNo it's not. Racism is better defined as the belief that there are inherent characteristics to humans that predicated and solely defined by racial phenotype.

The problem with this definition is that it is not based in actual science.

Dyne isn't defining race though, he's defining racism, and the fact that racism is often based on bad ideas about what constitutes race doesn't matter.

Zuben:whatever:

Your original post is that:
?"[font="Source Sans Pro", "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]My views on this issue aren't left wing in the Western world, they are par for the course and nor are they aligned with the Black Lives protesters in question"[/font]


[font="Source Sans Pro", "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]And you've weaseled and made a ghost of any challenge to this statement. "nor" and "views", are the main words here. Elucidate. If "nor" means fuck protesters, then I guess as I said after a lifetime of PhD Indian writing "fuck that loud Gandhi" or after a lifetime of Mexican writings it's "Fuck Cesar Chavez though, with his loud mouth".[/font]


[font="Source Sans Pro", "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Or of course after so much African literature studies, fuck African Gaddafi too, in the ass with a bayonet to his death.[/font] Nice job, PhD in African lit. So studied. Did it touch Libyan poetry and tales?


[font="Source Sans Pro", "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]It isn't at all clear what moral nature you are nor of what you have made due to your studies. Pol Pot was also also a degreed intellectual.[/font]


[font="Source Sans Pro", "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]"Nobody said that the Black Lives protesters in question are in breach of the 1st Amendment in any way."[/font]


[font="Source Sans Pro", "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]?Okay. But you attempted to deny their voice. So just not the Constitutution, but just settling back with your buddies. An effort to quash via different means. Stop talking loud, black people. So much commensurate disagreement between you and hundreds of African authors. None of those authors would ever advocate a black American to speak up.[/font]

I sincerely hope that you're in a place where you can get help.

Also, my response about Africa was clearly in relation to your meltdown over colonialism and wider Western civilization. Maybe you don't remember going off on that tangent, which wouldn't surprise me, given that your brain is quite clearly broken.

Zubensically good (I guess cause they're white?), or as if they all are some kind of rational sober actors caring about humans. Ignoring history from Haiti to Mexico to Algeria to Vietnam to Chile to......My god. Read a book.I know your mind is a fog of diarrhea, but we're talking specifically about civil rights that are protected under liberal democracies in the wider culture we live in, which is the West or, if you like, the Global North. Suggesting those rights are important, which everyone taking part in this discussion agrees on, is not an endorsement of Western civilization as a whole, nor of things like colonialism, obviously. I wrote a PhD thesis in the field of African post-colonial literature, but please, invite me to "read a book" about the evils of colonialism again, you gibbering tit.


[font="Source Sans Pro", "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]you: "My views aren't aligned with the Black Lives Matter protesters in question who think it's appropriate to shut down someone speaking about whether hate groups should be protected under freedom of speech laws by yelling over them."[/font]


[font="Source Sans Pro", "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]me: "I don't think the 1st Amendment has a "loud voice" clause."[/font]

you: "I wrote a PhD thesis in the field of African post-colonial literature,"



None of which apparently including African folks daring to speak loud, or if they did, speaking loud shouldn't be protected speech. Or maybe post-colonial African writers didn't anticipate such a moronic post such as yours so didn't bother to cite the First Amendment of a state in an entirely different continent and such. Nor does it have anything to do with pre/contemporary/post-African literature. This has to do with the United States, and why exactly your views aren't aligned with the United States black lives matter folks who your views aren't aligned with.


Sorry for my mind being a fog of diarrhea which can tell whether any state in the African continent is the United States. Oh, they aren't.

In your literature degree, how many Africans talking too loud, over Boers or French or something, were cited for violations time-travel-wise of the US 1st Amendment? Or would you have liked to see that also happening in Africa? A Boer speaks, a black South African speaks a bit louder, and that shouldn't be allowed?

Nobody said that the Black Lives protesters in question are in breach of the 1st Amendment in any way. Like, that didn't come up. I don't think anyone will blame me if I just ignore you, because you are clearly mentally deficient.

I feel less compelled to be constantly entertained. Now, if I have an hour to kill, I'm watching something or clicking through websites or whatever.

My parents have a cabin by the ocean on an island in BC and sometimes I will go there for a couple weeks. There is no internet and it feels like I'm resetting. My mind also feels less frantic and I get more patient.

Sometimes movies should be seen in 3D although it is rare. When a master of their craft specifically makes a movie to be seen in 3D, you're doing it wrong if you don't. Cuaron's Gravity, for instance, was made to be seen this way. Whether you love or hate Avatar, the same is true for it. Movies that have it slapped on as an after thought though, naw.
