    I can't help but think that there is poetic justice in the UK falling victim to the same divide and conquer tactics that they applied in so many of their colonies that have caused so much damage over...

    Conservatism in all of its forms basically boils down to the poor breaking their backs so that the rich can live comfortably. That's just not going to work in this day and age, who exactly are the...

    The 20th century was a bloody one for sure, but it also saw unprecedented advances in the standard of living for pretty much the entire world and created a new international order that has so far...

    Jean, especially the animated series version, does kind of represent everything stereotypically bland and uncool about white America. Obviously it's not impossible for people from other backgrounds...

    What exactly does civility entail these days anyway? Being polite, courteous, and considerate of the sensibilities of others sounds an awful lot like political correctness if you ask me...

    Now I'm as puzzled as anyone as to why a rapper would want to name herself after the whitest superhero of all time, but it goes to...

    The phenomenon of autocratic rulers applying ruthless methods to maintain absolute power goes all the way back to time immemorial, while the scale of the brutality varies by time and place, at the...

    None other than MLK Jr. himself warned of the dangers of putting too much trust in moderates. The fundamental issue is that while most of these people find racism to be distasteful and will vocally...

    What Trump voters want is basically socialism as well, except it's the kind that only benefits people like them and leaves everyone else out in the cold. Also Republicans have never really figured...
  11. If white people can't even stand getting called...

    If white people can't even stand getting called out for being racist, how are they going to react when actual policies to correct inequalities start to affect them?
  12. In America, actual racism by non-whites, as...

    In America, actual racism by non-whites, as opposed to mainstream anti-racist viewpoints that the right likes to paint as anti-white, is largely just a reaction to white racism, and a rather weak one...
  13. Racism. America's original sin that has never...

    Racism. America's original sin that has never been adequately addressed, and continue to kick the can down the road will just make the inevitable fallout that much worse. And this isn't just out of...

    I mean, the reason that white people aren't allowed to express pride over their accomplishments is because the people who study these sorts of things, who just so happen to largely be other white...
  15. The prosperity and status that white Americans...

    The prosperity and status that white Americans currently enjoy is entirely due to hundreds of years of racist policies meant to enrich them at the expense of everyone else. While it would be nice if...

    It's pretty easy to understand the American mindset once you wrap your head around the notion that all of the freedoms and rights that we love to tout were only really made possible because the...

    This trend of supposedly left leaning parties constantly running to the right seems like less of an electoral strategy and more simple self-preservation. Being that most of these parties are still...

    Okay, so Jesus dying for our sins means that we don't have to worry about all that Adam and Eve stuff anymore, right? Just live our lives the best we can and be happy?

    To some extent though, I can understand why so many Christians reject the idea of their faith developing organically and gradually from a blend of polytheistic faiths and other influences and insist...

    I think that it is pretty obvious that the Adam and Eve story was intended more as this fable to explain why there is so much pain and suffering in the world. The fact that a supposedly benevolent...

    The church at the time wasn't nearly centralized or influential enough to pull off something like that. Christianity had developed in the preceding few centuries as an underground religion with...

    These days everything the GOP says about illegal immigrants pretty much applies to anyone that doesn't fit their narrow definition of what a "real American" is. Even if you are talking about people...
