This is a perfectly normal thing to do

2019-09-09 06:54:48 UTC  

Everyone does it.

2019-09-09 06:54:57 UTC  

no, according to you its the comparatively "strong" thing to do

2019-09-09 06:55:19 UTC  

Yes, as I just explained. You can't protect yourself from something that you can't notice.

2019-09-09 06:55:34 UTC  

protect myself from a whinging little shit kid classmate?

2019-09-09 06:55:37 UTC  

oh perish the thought

2019-09-09 06:55:41 UTC  

For example

2019-09-09 06:56:23 UTC  

The conclusion may be different. Maybe you respond only to that one bully, but maybe you also look for patterns.

2019-09-09 06:56:42 UTC  

My brain looked for obvious patterns, for example in the case of my dad.

2019-09-09 06:56:45 UTC  

wasn't even a bully, he just wouldn't shut the fuck up and leave me alone

2019-09-09 06:56:55 UTC  

Well alright

2019-09-09 06:57:04 UTC  

That's not the biggest deal then

2019-09-09 06:57:33 UTC  

Oregon schools didn't really have bullies, they had ratty little provacative shits who just drew you out into faculty's line of sight so suddenly you're the bad guy

2019-09-09 06:57:39 UTC  

Would anyone here avoid a 20-man sized group toting ISIS flags?

2019-09-09 06:57:47 UTC  

100%

2019-09-09 06:57:50 UTC  

Alright.

2019-09-09 06:57:51 UTC  

Thanks.

2019-09-09 06:57:53 UTC  

Wouldn't even think twice

2019-09-09 06:58:01 UTC  

I'd pick up my AR and start shooting.

2019-09-09 06:58:05 UTC  

depends if I was armed

2019-09-09 06:58:12 UTC  

Exactly.

2019-09-09 06:59:20 UTC  

It's an extreme example, but that's based on what you know of them.

2019-09-09 06:59:27 UTC  

So, that's a form of discrimination, is it not?

2019-09-09 06:59:54 UTC  

ISIS is an ideology. anyone could be under that flag.

2019-09-09 07:00:10 UTC  

plausibly

2019-09-09 07:00:24 UTC  

brood's whinging about race and shit

2019-09-09 07:01:15 UTC  

Fair enough, but we all know who it is most strongly associated with, the pattern so to speak.

2019-09-09 07:01:49 UTC  

except the argument against similar race baiters on the left is that Islam isn't a race

2019-09-09 07:01:54 UTC  

I'm not whinging about race you fool

2019-09-09 07:02:09 UTC  

sound pretty fuckin whingey

2019-09-09 07:02:22 UTC  

And, you are still basing your decision upon material observations, however.

2019-09-09 07:02:25 UTC  

I specifically mentioned that my experiences with race were unimportant, I said non-immigrant kids were about the same

2019-09-09 07:02:40 UTC  

However, there are differences when immigration is not controlled properly

2019-09-09 07:02:47 UTC  

As was the case with Turks in Vienna

2019-09-09 07:02:55 UTC  

so then why the fuck should my experiences suddenly merit attention to the race of my opponents?

2019-09-09 07:03:37 UTC  

if race was so fucking unimportant in your case why the fuck does it have to be important in mine?

2019-09-09 07:03:49 UTC  

are you drunk?!

2019-09-09 07:03:50 UTC  

The less mature the brain is, the more important it is that we pick up on obvious objective features and other information like behavioral patterns etc.

2019-09-09 07:04:15 UTC  

Kids need to protect themselves by picking up on outward features, so they like or dislike, trust or distrust people due to simple things

2019-09-09 07:04:38 UTC  

Because, if it is a behavior that is normalized and reinforced as a value among the group, race inextricably becomes the way to resolve the problem, as it is then a social cancer to the group that can only be addressed by socializing them with peers and propaganda rejecting the behaviors. You'd have to use people from their own group to do it.
