Youngnan

"So what point are you trying to make youngnan?"

 

@ Elijah's Hottie - Maybe it's a culture thing if you're not getting it, or that I'm not getting you. I've never at any point said it's not an issue, but i think there's a general misunderastanding as to what "racist" means. I'm not going to get into the nitty gritty of it, cause you seem to have a sociology text in your posession and I'm sure there's a chapter or two somewhere in it about what exactly racism is.

 

Representation of the vast number of ethnicities in modern media will be an issue that continues into the forseable future because media caters to the society. If you've access to non-American media, you'll notice the difference. Fix the mind-set of people who only see the world in racial planes, fix the mindset created by centuries of conditioning, and TVD will follow. You don't raise that demand in a society by labelling everything the light touches on as "racist". That's counter-productive. Racism goes beyond casting black people as one family of black witches. Racism goes beyond not having asian cast members.

"Your attitude or disposition on the issue means shit to me" Fix responses like this first before you to try to implement "diverse casting legislature".

Insensitivity? Wash off the need to be pesristently politcally correct. Grow a little bit and muck around the world a little bit. Read a chapter, then go and try to live it out. Stop watching TVD, get some visine and then open up them eyes. Balance out the passion of the SoSci life with some real world practicality.

Youngnan I don't feel like wasting time by writing a essay. Heck I'm wasting time by replying to you...

 

 

but I will say you don't know what the fuck you're talking about honestly. I think you need the visine the most honey. Studies and research strongly disapprove your opinion.

 

 

 

I ask that everyone please stop making lame ass excuses for what the truth really is. Media protrays that we are living in a white world. Look at every show out there. Every fucking main lead is white. Casts are mainly made up of white people.  Pure and simple it's downright wrong. This is sending a wrong message to viewers and isn't a fair representation.

 

 

 

Elijah's Hottie knows what she is talking about. Plus youngnan there are many forms of racism. Just google media and racism. You are bound to get tons of results. Hmm I wonder why?

@ Elijah's Hottie - Maybe it's a culture thing if you're not getting it, or that I'm not getting you.

Think youngnan, think really, REALLY hard and your guest common sense might return to you from her long, extended vacation. I am well aware of culture and the implications this ambiguous term produces. Your posts sound similar to someone I had the misfortune of meeing one time. A KKK member.

 

Certain people who like to pull outlandish, uninformed, over the top bullshit out their proverbial asses try to relinquish the label ignorance in the effort to stamp it on the victims of the term racism. AND most of said people do not even have the ability to add 2 + 2 without shoving their stupidity into the faces of others. What I find amusing is that you have the unmitigated gall to come on this site just to post your crappy response to me. Is this your only argument? How pathetic.

 

It is questionable whether you find this need to proceed with your comments out of stubborness, or simply because you are an idiot. Even more laughable, is the fact that you have proven you didn't understand my posts. Crack open a dictionary and take on the BIG BAD WORDS, then perhaps you might get a semblance of understanding when you read my posts.

Let's hang up the facts since youngnan today has decided to pull shit out of her ass. The "there are a few minorities in television" argument is as stale as a piece of bread on a table for too damn long. The dissatisfaction that derives from justifiable frustration in the victims of racism should NEVER be placated based on what you just posted.

 

Ignorance is bliss, right? You should know. People who are conditioned to think a certain way are susceptible to influences outside the realm of their comprehension. Try to stay with me... I do not recall in any of my posts "labeling everything the light touches on as racism". You posted that shit, not me. Get your crap together before posting responses to me.

 

Perhaps to SOME people--and I use that term loosely--racism is a fairytale comprised of outlandish stories and myths meant to offer simple entertainment, but for others this term is an every day REAL occurence experienced over and over again. Victims of this term live it.

 

What becomes "counter productive" is when a person tries to mull over the truth with asinine baseless opinions...By the way, I'm talking about you, my dear.

 

 

Wash off the need to be pesristently politcally correct. Grow a little bit and muck around the world a little bit. Read a chapter, then go and try to live it out.

Wash off the need to be "persistently politicaly correct"? Congratulations youngnan. It usually takes years to acquire your amount of ignorance. Just to think, if you try really hard, you might be able to write a WHOLE DAMN BOOK on bullshit nonsense.

 

The wonderful thing is, it is not too late for you to pick up some "visine" in order to find your brain, which obviously went missing between your job and your skinhead meetings.

 

Sadly enough, most of your comments are too ignorant to debate.

 

 

Lovely attempt to respond by the way. Perhaps in the future you will give me something to work with. Before you respond to my posts, UNDERSTAND them first.

 

 

Now I will close this fruitless discussion, since your net worth to me is about the same as the gum I found on the bottom of my shoe just recently.

 

And youngnan, 2 + 2 is 4 my dear. Do not hesistate to use a calculator if it is too difficult for you.

Hence the reason, I am dismissing the neanderthal. IT will inevitably respond with more bullshit reasoning, but I will ignore it since I feel like continuing this discussion will take my precious time away from people who can offer good points.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
