If you want to extrapolate, that's fine, but do remember that it's *your* interpretation, and in this case I think it's disengenuous.
If you're going to claim that racism is predjudice + power, and then tell me that it's racist to mention who actually has most of the power, you have shown that you don't have a great deal of interest in justice per se. I'm perfectly happy to let the chips fall where they may, and work from there towards a better future for all, but I'm not seeing that from you.
Sacred cows have no place in rational discussion, so what's more important, rational discussion, or defending what is logically indefensible?
You began to randomly talk about Jewish influence in the media. Not at all on topic. You ignored TWO warnings in the thread.
This will be my second attempt to address your false accusations re random references to Jewish influence. You failed to respond to my first attempt via PM so this time I'll do it here.
I responded to someone who was making inaccurate racial generalizations re whites, correctly pointing out that whites are not the dominant power in media. This was then taken by Starmaker to be an attack on Jews, which I also responded to. There was *no* randomness at all with anything I posted re whites or Jews.
I'm concerned about what appears to be racial bias against whites on the part of GOG. I note that you said nothing about the Asian poster's racial generalizations, nor did I see you say anything at all to the poster who decided it was perfectly OK to bring up "white privilege" in a thread about a shooting tragedy. I'm very concerned about this, because it sends the message that racial generalizations are perfectly OK as long as they're directed at whites. They're only "bad" when they're directed at groups that have been granted ideological victim status.
It's similar to an incident that occurred at Evergreen State College that happened about a year ago, where a liberal Jewish professor was attacked because he chose not to participate in a "protest" that attempted to exclude whites from the college campus for a day, because he didn't think racial shaming was morally acceptable, and would have negative consequences for the college. Attendance has since dropped from over 900 to under 300, so apparently he was right.
I really hope that this can be resolved amicably, Linko, because I don't think either of us are well-served by dragging this out indefinitely.
BTW, Telika and Starmaker, do you think it's OK to throw Bret Weinstein under the bus for failing to show deference to the ideological orthodoxy of the extreme left? And what if it turned out that I am also Jewish, would that make any difference?
