Sister Miyagi posted:

Sometimes I'm afraid I'm racist

I never had any problem with minorities when I was younger, it all started in high school. My town is big enough it probably needs two high schools, but it only has one, which thus had a crazy mix of rich and poor and middle class. To be fair, I was a misanthrope and hated everyone in high school, but it was a matter of what attribute I blamed the things I was annoyed by on: Cheerleaders were vapid cunts because they were busy sucking cock to get through school without thinking, and black people were annoying because... they were black.

In college, after I got a low paying entry level job, for a while (okay, still today) I was in this strange phase where I intellectually rejected racism as stupid and illogical, but on a day to day basis would think "goddamn these lazy n----- never doing any loving work, I have to do everything and if I dare ask them to help they go off on me even though I'm technically their boss!" and things like that. That spread to hating people who blast music in their cars, people who talk so loudly you can hear them in Chicago, people who walk in huge, slow groups through narrow spaces, not allowing anyone past - maybe white people did these things, but all I saw were "stupid n-----" doing it.

Luckily, college also ended up helping. Turns out learning things can help you change attitudes (gasp!), and I began to realize a lot of the things I found annoying and improper were just part of a subculture that wasn't mine. They don't see themselves as annoying or loud or lazy, it's just what they were taught was correct behavior.

I also learned, first hand, about the conditions a lot of the kind of kids I hated grew up in. I was naive enough to think poverty wasn't so much of a problem in my white-bread conservative town, and that even if they were poor, families would always teach their kids well. Then a (white) family moved in next door to me after a very nice house was abandoned, nearly condemned, bought by the government and fixed up as low income housing. The parents are mentally unstable, won't spend any more on the kids than they have to to keep them alive and keep DCFS off their backs (and their caseworker is extremely sympathetic to them for some reason), and teach their kids that swearing, screaming and hitting are proper forms of expression of nearly any emotion, that you should get rude and indignant if anyone does anything you don't like, and that abuse and neglect are a normal part of life. In the two years since they moved in, the two oldest daughters have gotten pregnant, one three times, both before finishing high school; all the other kids have been removed from the house after DCFS finally pulled their heads out of their asses and realized these kids weren't even given toilet paper, and I realized a lot of people have to make do with what they've been given, which isn't always what the rest of us would assume.

In the end, I try to tell myself that I don't hate someone because they're black, because skin color has nothing to do with it; I hate the way they act, which is part of a culture they grew up in, and they unable or unwilling to change to conform to norms I'm more comfortable with, which is their right, for better or worse.


Now I'm starting to have the same problem with Indians. It really sucks when you walk into a classroom and are literally knocked back by the odor...

Edit (because this isn't long enough!): I used to be a really hardcore feminist. I still consider myself a feminist, but I have nothing on some of the assholes on my campus. Even aside from the "ALL MEN ARE POTENTIAL RAPISTS" type signs they like to stick up all over campus every once in a while, I don't like their methods. Most sexism today is much more insidious than the "GET INT HE KITCHEN MAKE ME A SAMMITCH" kind of yesteryear. It's the more subtle "Women don't do X because science proves they're just not GOOD at x!" type thing. A lot of the studies the medial likes to report like this don't really say what they think they say; and even though some differneces in brain size and activity can be found, there's not much proof that they actually affect performance in a given area any more than natural variation in the population would. See alse: "Girls can't throw because their arms are different!"

The biggest problem I see is with the curtailing of activities considered suitable for men. Every time a man freaks out because his son is playing house or having a tea party, he sends a clear message: that sort of thing is BENEATH YOU. If only women do the things that are "beneath men," what does that teach boys about girls and women?

this it?

quote:

Africa would have been subjected to a bloodbath of proportions unseen in history if the white man hadn't destroyed their culture first.

Examples I point to are as follows -

The Zulu nation was happily destroying not only all of it's neighbors, but many of their own people as the leadership happened to be certifiably insane. Shaka for example had a small penis (actually historically accurate) and killed thousands of people because of it. The zulu empire was actually not the bad one as the Matabele under Mzilikali after his loss to the zulu, took his tribe and conducted a scorched earth campaign across the lower section of africa destroying all in his path.

Lets not forget the laughable Xhosa girl Nongqawuse who said she saw visions that if everybody killed off their cattle and burned their fields the dead spirits of their ancestors would grant not only tenfold cattle in return, but destruction of the new white Anglo/Boer civilization in the southern cape. Needless to say after they slaughtered and burned everything no ancestors were forthcoming and 25 thousand of the Xhosa tribe died.
The tribes of africa were largely barbaric and vicious groups of people who really only understood killing for the most part. There were exceptions to the rule as there always are, the hottentots, and various smaller tribes, but for the most part african culture was set up to destroy other cultures to begin with.

I'm not going to say that they are better off having been colonized by the europeans, but the alternative was pretty vicious as well.

I decided it'd be fun to gently caress myself earlier this evening/morning. So I greased up Mr Sunshine and went to work. I had fun for 10 minutes and came. Then I was feeling the need to shower, so I did. This is where things get graphic. Stop here if you don't want to cry. Shortly after I started my shower, I felt a bit of matter coming out. Not terribly unusual, I just got done pounding my rear end. It landed on the floor of the shower. A few moments later I notice it's moving... strangely as it slowly gets washed towards the drain. Last chance to stop. It's horriffic.I nudge it with my toe and, to my horror, realize it's one piece. As in, a connected piece, as if it were... tissue. I think it's a bit of the outer layer of the colon. I feel like I'm going to pass out. I just crapped a piece of my rear end out of my rear end. I get it down the drain as quickly as possible and then sit down in the tub, I felt like I was having a panic attack. I'd had plenty of rear end sex before and not noticed this. Maybe this happened and I simply didn't notice it, or maybe the rear end "sheds" like this on its own occasionally, and no one really notices it (or admits they did). My rear end didn't hurt at all, but it does now, kind of, probably because I haven't stopped thinking about this horror for the last 90 minutes.

Truth posted:

I was trying to go to sleep a few minutes ago and for some reason the enormity of these events finally hit me and I couldn't stop crying. I have no real life friends who give a poo poo about professional wrestling, so this is basically the only place I have to express these feelings, but I really feel the need to express them.

I would like this thread to be about our personal feelings about the death of Chris Benoit, and how it has personally affected us. Just TV-IVing about the details as they come in, or wondering about the WWE's future, and all of that bullshit has no place here. I need to write about my feelings about Chris Benoit. Obviously these posts will be mocked elsewhere on the forums, but gently caress em. If you feel the need to say anything, say it.

-----

Chris Benoit is a murderer. He killed his wife and child. We will probably never know exactly what he was thinking. Obviously I did not know Chris Benoit. I never saw him in person and never spoke to him. But he represented something very special to me. In such a cut-throat, dirty, dark, often disgusting, business he was one of the good ones. When people talked poo poo about wrestling and the bastards involved in it, you could always muffin out Chris Benoit as the exception to the rule. He was the one you could muffin to as a true professional who honored the sport he loved, who was passionate about it, who proved that you could dedicate your life to professional wrestling without being insane or scum or a monster. He was the ace in the hole. He was the one who wasn't in it for the pussy or because he was a failed jock in another sport or because he wanted to get rich quick or because he wanted to be a movie star or because he saw wrestling as a means to an end. He was in it for professional wrestling. He was dedicated to being the best professional wrestler he could be, and it showed in the ring.

I wanted to be a professional wrestler since I was a little kid, and one of the very worst moments of my life was a cold night in San Antonio when I was on the phone to my girlfriend a thousand miles away and finally admitted to myself and to her that coming to Texas to be a wrestler had been a mistake. Coming to grips that I was simply not athletically or charismatically talented enough to be a professional wrestler was one of the worst moments of my life. The business glorifies the boyhood dreams that come true. My boyhood dream wasn't going to come true, and it was an upsetting, soul-crushing revelation that upsets and discourages me to this day.

Since then I lived vicariously through Chris Benoit in a lot of ways. He wasn't a man who was destined to be a WWE champion. He couldn't talk. He wasn't charismatic in the usual way. He was quiet. He was short. The only thing he had going for him was his work ethic. He wasn't a third generation wrestler. He wasn't physically gifted. He wasn't someone who had words come easy to him. But through sheer effort he was able to become one of the greatest professional wrestlers in history. By 40 years-old.

Chris Benoit was only forty, and he was already a legend on the verge of myth. That's how talented he was, and how respected.

I cannot reconcile in my mind that the man who unnecessarily gave back so much to the sport could end his life the way he did. I can't understand how a man could spend weeks and months trying to give back to younger guys like MVP, putting forth the care and effort to help them find their voice in the ring, and that that same man could strangle his wife and child only weeks later. It doesn't make sense. It shouldn't have happened this way. Not for him, not for Nancy, and not for their child.

Chris Benoit owed me nothing. But I still feel the loss. I selfishly lived through many of his accomplishments and now feel lost. I can only speak for myself, but I feel that for a lot of us Mondays and Fridays are rocks of stability in a storm of stress and uncertainty. Every week the show goes on. Every week the show is from somewhere new, somewhere in the world, but every week it comes into our homes.


And that will continue. But Chris Benoit is dead. And he died a murderer. And whether it be insanity, drugs, or just the actions of a clear-eyed monster, what is done is done. And one of the pillars for the guys backstage and one of the pillars for fans is gone. And everything that pillar held up is tainted and dripping with blood.

Chris Benoit was a murderer. And I don't know how to accept that.
