What happened to "live and let live"?

Doesn't exist, among the left. More like "live, and self-righteously lecture".

It is amazing how we never have Thomas Sowell and Dick here on the forum at the same time. Dick only appears when Tom has been away for a long time.

Almost like Dick is allergic to his thinking, or something.

Tater doesn't want to hear what guys like Sowell have to say. Too much logic and not enough hate for him.

people are getting punished for the crimes of their ancestors!

I thought the whole point of anti-racism was to NOT JUDGE THE GROUP or even PATTERNS EVIDENT IN A GROUP!


I already dealt with this in this post...

Hopelessly Racist Hypocrites: "Racism à la Carte"

One cannot escape the question by hand-waving at the past, disavowing the acts of one’s ancestors, nor by citing a recent date of ancestral immigration. The last slaveholder has been dead for a very long time. The last soldier to endure Valley Forge has been dead much longer. To proudly claim the veteran and disown the slaveholder is patriotism à la carte.
Ta Nihisi Coates



Hey guys, ever notice how whites love to talk out of both sides of their mouth? Out one side, when it comes to the horrors of their race, they refuse to take collective responsibility saying shit like, “My family never owned slaves.” or “I never lynched or raped anyone.” But out the other side of their mouth, when it comes to the so called positive things about their race, suddenly it's all about WE: WE have higher IQs, WE invented everything. WE put a man on the moon etc.
Unknown


I also like how when they do something good, like invent the light bulb, it is something no one else could possibly do! Except maybe NE Asians. And yet when they do something bad, like genocide or slavery, the first thing out of their mouths is: “Everyone does it!” They are cool with being amazingly good but not with being amazingly evil.
Abagond


To maintain this fragile white ego patients will: Play up white accomplishments (inventions, “civilization”, IQ scores, freeing the slaves, etc). Certain bigoted and racist people are very quick to use the word “we” when it comes to these things, as if they are time travelers or ancient vampires. Yet at the same time, they have a problem when Blacks talk about slavery in terms of “we”. A complete double standard. They say, “Why are you complaining about slavery. You were never a slave!”
Well, buddy, you didn’t build the Colosseum or the Roman aqueducts.

RE: thomas sowell
there is a double standard there.

However blaming people for the crimes of their relatives or ancestors is in effect a blood crime. it's similar to racism as the whole people are blamed.

i do agree that caucasians love gloating about their "western heritage" or "civilization"

what i am doing is noting that we must be consistent across the board, if we are not going to BROAD STROKE judge races of people based on the actions of a subset, we should not do that across the board. that seems fair to me.

But you wrote your post that I quoted above about 80 minutes after I posted the video of Black Wall Street.

I didn't blame Pilgrim for the crimes of his relatives. I simply wrote;

"Watch and learn what your DEMON POSSESSED comrades did out of pure evil and jealously one of the first times blacks created a prosperous, independent city in Amerika."

Agreed, even though, as mentioned, I didn't blame Pilgrim.

But as you, Coates and the other quotes say, whites need to quit with double standards as well, which we can almost guarantee will NEVER happen.

I have no problem at all talking about the good and the bad.

The idea that it is white people that want to 'only talk about the good things' displays a barely conceivable lack of self-awareness, seeing as it comes from people that only want to talk about the bad.

That is why I always bring up the "What have the Romans ever done for us?" joke. Because it perfectly exhibits that. Only wanting to talk about the bad things.

Communism. Telling people what they want to hear.

It is an absolute pandemic in our society. Bald-faced lying is rewarded, looked up to as something to be emulated.

Why do people not want to admit that Hitler rose as a response to the rise of Marxism and Communism in post-WWI Germany. It just reminds me of the Russian collusion hoax after Trump's election. A total refusal to examine the world as it truly is.

I don't really understand the last sentence above. If the Welfare state helps some poor people get back on their feet, I don't really understand how it would be taking their money away from them.

Let's say that someone loses all their money in stocks or some other catastrophe occurs and they don't have any money. Next, the Welfare state comes in and helps them so that they don't stay broke for the next year or two as they look for work. Next, they find a job, albeit a low paying one, and succeed to hold on to it for the next 20 years. I don't see how the state would be taking away their money, unless the quote above means that the state would be taking away part of their income through taxation. But the quote above says "insofar" as they succeed, the state takes away their money, which implies that the state would be taking away all the money that they succeeded in earning through taxation. However, this does not make sense either.

RE: thomas sowell
It is saying there is no incentive to succeed.

Many people have done the math and working for cash, at minimum wage, makes a lot more sense than being paid 'above board' (and thus paying taxes and no longer qualifying for various benefits). Then you have people that don't work at all.

They can make lets say 30-40k annual, but as soon as they enter the labor pool, they will make less than 30k, have to pay taxes, lose benefits AND actually have to wake up and go to work every day.

You get the free money until you work hard enough to make some of your own money. When that happens they take the benefit away.
