War is Peace Freedom is Slavery Everything is racist
thats my guiding light when in doubt
@NITRODUBS You have a strong #MeToo case. Were the women Cosby victimized "racist"? No! Stay strong.
Ugh I feel like it’s a real spike to my dignity to say he harassed me, because I feel like that’s a lie. He just called me racist he didn’t do anything sexual or whatever
Calling you slurs in an effort to damage your personal and professional reputation is harassment of a kind.
A good strategy would be to steer the definition of "racism" towards "racial hatred." We don't hate other races, so we're not racists.
After all, the word isn't going away. May as well control it.
@NITRODUBS He is using his black privilege in an attempt to destroy the reputation of a white woman who had the audacity to turn him down. That is absolutely harassment, of the vilest and most cowardly kind.
@Danimal876 The word is going away if it gets mocked enough and its users realize that it has no intimidation power anymore
How's everyone evening going?
@NITRODUBS It is absolutely harassment. He's trying to threaten you because you turned down his unwelcome advances. If that's not harassment, then I don't know what is.
He a told me I was sheltered because I haven’t dated a non white person
And yeah I’m going to report him I just feel like this will blow up in my face
Just remember, never go on the defensive about the situation, *he* is in the wrong, *not* you. @NITRODUBS
You are under no obligation to date anyone you don’t like, full stop.
I wonder if pulling the race card on people like that actually works in some incidences.
Even the fact that you don’t want to date out of your race aside, anyone who’d pull something like that to guilt you into a relationship doesn’t sound like quality material anyway.
Pulling the race card (especially in front of others) definitely works.
Just act really offended by his words. Act as though it goes without saying that what he said is offensive and racist. Act as though you totally expect everyone to agree with you and see his offensive ways.
It's social pressure in an instant and most will crumble.
these people are seriously depraved
The moment you show even a tiny bit that you're afraid that you'll be deemed racist - you lost. Easier said than done though, I know, especially if you don't want to jeopardize the job. Sorry you have to deal with this @NITRODUBS
We're literally being forced to justify our own existence
It's somehow controversial to want to have kids with someone who has something in common with you
Does anyone know how long it takes to register a business? I need to know for an article I'm writting
Could I theoretically go online, pay a fee, and be a "business owner"?
@Jacob In Maryland, I literally went online, filled out some forms, and boom...business (sole proprietorship). Might be different per state.
So it's accurate to say "I can literally go online, pay a small fee, and I now own a 'business'"?
Yeah pretty much.
Because with a sole proprietorship, you don't need an employer tax number (since it's just me), so a SSN is all they need and you already have that.
Again, might be different in WA...
Family dinner: watching the "boomers buy RVs" cable TV show makes me want to quote Erik Striker. 😒
