    Illegitimacy has been rising across the West. In France and Sweden, for example, most children are no longer born to married women. That is a sea change in Western society that goes way beyond Black America.



    The birth rate among unmarried Black women has been dropping since the early 90's – meaning that they are acting more responsibly, not less. The reason the illegitimacy rate goes up is because the birth rate among married Black women has been dropping even faster, something that has been going on since the 1950s.



    Also an illegitimate birth tells you nothing about whether the mother lives with the father or gets married later, just as a legitimate birth tells you nothing about divorce, separation or incarceration.

    Does racism exist ? Because if you are saying that "no race is more advantaged than any other race" then your saying that racism does not exist. Right ? Because the whole point of white supremacy is to give white a head start.

    "I'm naturally smart" Get over yourself (lol)

    Because when you sought admission to a university, applied for a job, went for an interview, almost all of the people who evaluated you for those things looked like you, they were white. They saw in you a reflection of themselves, and in a racist world that is an advantage. You smiled. You are white. You were one of them. You were not dangerous. Even when you got angry, you were cut some slack. After all, your white. White privilege has meant that scores of second-rate white ppl have slid through the system because their flaws were overlooked out of solidarity based on race.

    White privilege works in 3 ways

    1) Material (greater opportunity in the labor market, or greater net worth, due to a history in which whites had the ability to accumulate wealth to a greater extent than blk ppl)
    2) Social (such as presumptions of competence, creditworthiness, law-abidingness, intelligence)
    3) Psychological (not having to worry about triggering negative stereotypes, rarely having to feel out of place, not having to worry about racial profiling, etc.).

    White privilege is the flipside of discrimination against black people.

    If you are saying white privilege does not exist, then you must also say racism does not exist

    There can be no down without an up

    If black people are the targets of discrimination, in housing, employment, the justice system, or elsewhere, then whites, by definition, are being elevated above those black ppl.

    Denilson is doing very ok. In fact if you knew what I do and how much money I earn..... I'd shock the pants off you.

    But I also know that the white supremacist could take everything I have away from me if they wanted. So I don't get fooled by my money. I understand I live in a system of white supremacy

    LOL, will respond to that salad later! But I am having a good chuckle. Do you honestly believe half of this stuff? It is like X being a supremacist. You don't seem to know me ery well. I haven't been interviewed by a white person in about 20 years. Later, Dennis. Ever wonder why I clock off at this time. No white supremacists where I am. 🙄

    Denilson has hit the mother lode with you, Miles.

    You make some good points, but as I've said before, the way you go about it makes you an easy target for someone like Denilson, who believes (unless it's a huge windup persona) 100% of white people are racists.

    Moderate viewpoints usually make for short, boring arguments..... but extreme viewpoints are just the opposite.

    I know you don't like being called racist, and I'll abstain from calling you that. But you've got some beliefs ingrained in you that could easily provide (and does) cannon fodder for not only Denilson, but someone like Beanz as well.

    Beanz is ultra PC, which makes him clash with me on the transgender issue. So naturally he's going to take offense with some of your broadbrush comments.

    That YouTube you posted with the Japanese pimple-faced idiot trying to ban blacks in Japan has stayed with me. That you even posted that and gave it an audience was very disappointing, as all it does is propagate negative stereotypes that do no one any good.



    I try to be as clear as possible. If you say there's an overpopulation problem, I agree with you. It makes no sense to me for women to spit out dozens of babies in countries without enough food to feed those who are already born.

    If you say there's a huge single mother problem which only propagates the poor, government handout dependent population..... I'll agree with that also. My only qualifier is that it cuts across racial and ethnic lines. The government is a lot to blame.

    When you say some people choose to be poor, I know what you're trying to say and it's a bit coarse. But by making life choices like spitting out kids like hamsters ("let the government take care of us"), many single women choose their lifestyle.

    Kids naturally struggle to escape that reality and that vicious cycle.


    Governments should do a COMPLETE OVERHAUL of welfare and handout systems. EVERYWHERE. As with many other government programs, the thought and effort put into these programs is barely TOKEN and gotten out of the way as quickly as possible so these corrupt, inept legislators can move on to their next empty promise.


    Anyway, Denilson will continue thinking as he does (unless it's been all a huge, giant chain-pulling exercise) until maturity sets in around his late 40's or 50's.

    I take jokes of white supremacists very seriously.

    This guy Jeremy Christian was throwing up these hand signs as a "joke" & a week later he killed 2 ppl



    All white supremacist policies start off as jokes FIRST

    I could say the same about you.

    Your talking points sound good when your around your buddies. They sound good when no-one is there to call you out.

    Genocides unfold in eight stages. Stopping it at any one stage, stops the genocide from going forward.

    Racism grows and feeds off a culture of silence. The point of calling out racism is to break down that silence. That's why I ALWAYS-ALWAYS call it out.

    It does not matter if you persuade anyone. What matters is that you were heard and planted that seed in people’s minds of, “Hey, maybe this is not right"

    Elizabeth Eckford was one of the first black students to go to Little Rock Central High School in the American South (And bear in mind she was from a two parent family. Once again - Did the white supremacist lay of her because of that ?)



    That school was a hell for her because the 90% who were not giving her hell would not stand up to the 10% who were.

    Calling out racism matters more when it comes from whites.

    Because everyone thinks white people are way more objective and neutral about racism than blacks. That's the Tim Wise Effect.

    Black people calling out racism ? Well - Whites and others generally discount what blacks say, it is part of their cultural conditioning, but they still hear it. They hear what we say and, just as important, what we don't say. If something racist goes down and blacks say nothing ? Whites will assume that it's “not so bad”. Especially since many whites assume blacks are “oversensitive”.

    How on earth am I ultra PC?

    Don't buy into the propaganda and bullshit. The sad truth is that Gandalf is not very different from Denilson at all. He is like Denilson wedded to an idealogy that prevents hims from seeing things objectively or engaging with any kind of rationality or sophistication.

    Gandalf has only ever had to worry about Gandalf so it is hardly surprising the bloke has had an empathy bypass but that does not explain his deeply held belief that anyone who is not as fortunate (in fact anyone more fortunate too) as him deserve whatever happens to them. If he was religious one could possibly understand and it would likely be a bit more balanced and nuanced.

    The fact is that actually he is not so different, hence his thinking all these YouTube celebrities are his saviour.

    The truth is we do not live in a perfect or fair meritocracy, even in the west. There are plenty of responsible hard working people who are poor through no fault of their own. Of course there are lazy people who could do more to change their circumstances but to suggest that is some kind of default behaviour with which you can describe all or the majority of poor people is astonishingly stupid. It is a commonly known phenomenon and you do not have to be a psychologist to understand or have seen people use it. The lazy person on welfare who will say that the family next door are terribly slothful, and the trust fund kid who will make the same accusation of laziness to some guy who may have only been unemployed for a short time, having worked for the rest of his life.

    The truth is we all want to believe that we got where we are through some kind of unique blend of effort and innate qualities. The whole system we live under perpetuates that myth. You must know, more than many others though, how simplistic that kind of thinking is. Just as a natural disaster can destroy homes and businesses, with no regard to who is lazy and hard working, who is talented and motivated, and those who lack initiative and a work ethic, so can a myriad realities of life. Disability, sickness, death, accidents, mental health breakdowns, economic collapse, employers closing down, all affect not just one person but families, communities and even countries. This is nothing a teenager could fail to understand. So it is quite rational to conclude that what motivates Gandalf to declare that Black people, or anyone else choose to be poor, is an irrational ideology. An ideology that gives him some false sense of superiority and entitlement.

    Sure effort, planning, application and a good dose of luck help, but where we are born, to whom we are born, and a whole lifetime of random events have just as much of an impact on how far from poverty we really are.

    I don't really believe in fate or karma in a religious sense but I would not want to be in the shoes of someone tempting disaster with talk of how the majority of people in a worse off position than myself deserve to be there. That kind of thinking automatically makes you a ripe target for those selling you the lie that racism is scientific, and an apologist for a ridiculous inequality gap that praises huge corporations and individual billionaires, that profit by not only making poor people poorer, but actually stealing natural resources from them.

    I am happy not to be such a cynical entitled boring bastard.

    100% agree with this statement. Having survived the catastrophe that was Hurricane Maria, I've seen firsthand how something like that can turn a neighborhood.... a city.... a whole island upside down. Thousands of lives were lost (not the 60-some claimed by Trump)..... infrastructure was shattered.... ways of life were upended. Less than two years later I've personally seen stories of triumph and resilience..... just as I have seen wallowing and "woe is me" attitudes. The other "myriad realities of life" of course include catastrophic illnesses, and personal tragedies that are hard to recover from.

    All my life I've resisted lumping people together based on race, ethnic groups, or sexual preferences. I do however, take stands where I feel it's appropriate....... and that inevitably always ends up rubbing some people the wrong way.

    Of course if your in a system of white supremacy, a system of racism, then your always going to need some kind of scientific rationale to justify that system. That's why white supremacist are always running around trying to prove how stupid black ppl are (Bell Curve) and trying to prove how violent black people are.

    But if you think science can settle moral questions, you need only look at the differing scientific opinions over climate change, or evolution to see how wrong your assumptions can be.

    If you rest your claim on scientific knowledge and then the scientific knowledge changes, you are duty bound to change morality. No ?

    You have a choice if you wanted to work in Kenya earning a few dollars. Local Ppl earning a few dollars in Kenya don't have that choice.

    There should be no-one dying of poverty and hunger any where on the planet. None. Zero

    It’s the scorched earth shit. They (the white supremacist) fk up the water over there. They fk up the earth so they cant grow anything and then and then give them a bag of rice in exchange for a bag of diamonds.

    The mobile phone or I-phone you have in your pocket, or laptop would not even work without Congolese coltan

    And who do you think mines that ? Yup black Africans.



    Who controls Coltan deposits over there ? Apple (The biggest company in the world)

    Africa has the biggest stores of

    • Gold and diamonds
    • Oil
    • Cocoa
    • Timber

    Not to mention Iron, Platinum, Uranium, Chromium. Even Cement is exported from Egypt and Morocco. Also Africa is one of the most diverse geological continents.

    The African countries are held hostage through debt. The debt payback is done by getting more resources at low prices. Meanwhile local infrastructures are crumbling, social programmes and local developments are cut because of the paybacks.

    The debt relief comes with a price. The African resource producing countries have to sell everything for a special discount price which opens the doors to all sorts of speculations from foreign investors demanding high returns.

    Another by-product the west is expecting from their ‘generous gestures’ is to get positive votes at the next UN assembly. Any African who goes against it ? They threaten the local authorities to pull their funds out or threaten them to initiate another government turnover.

    But in order to become a vets, doctors, teachers, scientists and less so a fitness instructors you need an education and education is part of the system of white supremacy.

    Black kids are punished more harshly than white kids for minor behavioral infractions, even if they commit those infractions no more frequently than whites.

    Black children are tracked into basic and remedial level classes while white kids are tracked into advanced and honors classes (whether or not they show promise and even sometimes quite a bit less)

    Why are predominantly Black school districts are under-funded ?
    Why are predominantly Black school districts under-staffed with inexperienced teachers ?
    Why are predominantly Black school districts denied books ?
    Why are predominantly Black school districts denied microscopes and other lab equipment ?
    Why are predominantly Black school districts always have hazardous waste near by black schools ?
    Why are predominantly Black school districts always have to cut art and music classes, sports teams and sometimes hot meals in a cafeteria ?

    Answer = Because we live in system of white supremacy.

    And even when black people do navigate our way through all that B.S, black grads are still less likely than whites to get a job, still paid less, still less likely for career advancement
    So big D the Apple white supremacists own the mines. Guess again, it’s blacks keeping other blacks. You really are stupid

    Various military groups have controlled the mineral deposits and exploited the local population. After the illicit coltan is relabeled and sent to legitimate smelters, it is processed and made into capacitors, and sold to electronics companies such as Apple, Samsung, IBM, Dell, Sony, Cisco, HP and a host of others.

    The United Nations has a peacekeeping force of thousands in the DRC, in a region that has more than 30 armed groups, including anti-government forces, and a president who has remained beyond his term. Aside from the rebels, militias and organized crime organizations are profiting from control of coltan, foreign corporations exploit the country for its minerals without paying billions of dollars in taxes. The Friends of the Congo identified the following corporations as some of the key players in the foreign exploitation of the Congo: Cabot Corporation, OM Group, AVX, Eagle Wings Resources International, Trinitech International, Kemet Electronics Corporation, and Vishay Sprague in the U.S.; HC Starc and EPCOS (Germany); Nigncxia (China), and George Forrest International (Belgium). Neighboring countries in Central Africa participate in the exploitation as well. The organization noted that while Uganda and Rwanda have little or no coltan, their exports of the mineral increased exponentially during the military conflict in the DRC.

    According to the U.N. Security Council, Burundi, Uganda and Rwanda and their proxy militias have benefited from conflict in the DRC and have engaged in “mass-scale looting” of the country’s natural resources. “Key individual actors, on the one hand, including top army commanders and businessmen, and government structures, on the other, have been the engines of that systematic and systemic exploitation,” said the Security Council in a resolution.

    The poor of Africa Robert Mugabe starved his own people and he amassed a fortune and guess what other black leaders never condoned him for his actions.
    In reality he could not run a bath never mind a country imagine a white leader done such a thing.
    Africa is rich in natural resources and is extremely fertile but alas it is ruled by corruption .
    I am 59 years old they were starving when I was a child sorry to say it in a hundred years time nothing will change.

    Default Re: Genuine Question: Why do people stay poor?

    Beanz, you continually misrepresent what I say. I think you take it personally too because you like to take things the wrong way and are poor. You wish you could have done things differently, you wish you could have seen more of the world, but you made your choices in life and there you are. You chose your poverty. You have made it clear the numerous times you have whined about selling your things and earning 25 pounds a week. You choose not to realize your potential. You think somehow the life of an artist is honest and true, but who does that really provide for at the end of the day? Thus when you see someone like me who is successful, who did have the discipline to pursue something that does help others and is fun, who does bank, who does have freedom, it triggers the hostility in you. You are a jealous, petty, spiteful little sick aging man and the clock is ticking. Tick tock.

    You can rant until the sun comes up about me, but it shows I am under your skin. You think about me in the day, as you fall asleep at night. You are always thinking 'I will look for any turn of phrase I can because that gives my life meaning when I am on a 2 hour work week and frustrated'. You even send me long pm's, telling me how you are leaving only to reverse 3 days later as your life is far from full of community and joy. You are at home and need the conflict to make you feel you are doing your thing. It helps you escape the tedium that is you. You have to be at war. Thus enemies must be constructed, you lose your shit over jokes, you will rant for paragraphs over a flippant turn of phrase. If Spicoli started a thread about morning pick ips uou would have said NOTHING and you know it. You are selective, manipulative and a cunt. I caught you out on that one for giggles. I play you like a violin, Beanz.

    There is nothing more to Larry. He is the frustrated little boy always the victim raised in a cult, fighting the government that he thinks owes him a living, fighting the forum bad guys, hating on the very people that told him he really did not need to leave, when a really mean person would have said 'Great, the forum is now a happier, calmer, more friendly place'. Still in a cult only a different one, but failing to see how unpopular it makes him look.

    I am a bit bored with it myself if I am honest. So this is one of 3 final posts to come. I will show you how to leave a forum.

    @Denilson

    1. Okay, so you are now going to deny hundreds of scientific investigations. IQ is the one of the most tested aspects there is when it comes to evaluating human intelligence and behavior. Unlike evolution, or global warming, you and I can take an IQ test right now and compare scores. We can also then compare our lives. Just me and you, one on one, and come to some conclusions. Either you are smarter than me. Or else I am smarter than you. A shoot out. IQ is of course useful as an overall evaluator of races, genders, age groups, religious types typically large groups of people. If it was down to me and you it would be taking us as individuals and I prefer that approach as there are undeniably very smart black people and some very stupid white people. I am confident I can perform better than you though Denilson and it is not because you are black.

    2. What does it matter if it is only a few dollars if that an buy you what you need in the environment you are in? I have a friend in Thailand who earns far less than I do. However, his money is more than enough to live well in the financial system he is in. If you live in the UK then you will earn more still, but often find it is a struggle to drink as plentifully due to the cost of a drink these days in a pub. These things are all relative Denilson. My parents in law grew up very poor, but there was always access to the cleanest organic produce. We basically had knock off tins of processed meat. All relative.

    3. People die from poverty anywhere, Denilson. They die in the UK, they die in America, inevitably some will die in Kenya too. My argument is that poor people should think very carefully about having children if they are poor. Otherwise, it can be a very callous act.

    4. You are happy for white south African farmers to get killed for rare minerals, but get upset when it is black people. I would suggest it is unfair in both instances. I think you are a bit of a hypocrite there Denilson.

    5. Bruce Springsteen is very important to this as he has made several of the most excellent albums of the past 50 years. I know you don't like those kinds of beats, so I will move on from Bruce.

    6. No, black kids are having more problems because they tend to have more environmental, family, and cultural problems. If nobody is going to encourage you to study well or if you do not have the aptitude to study well as many white and black kids indeed struggle with education then yes it will be more difficult. However, becoming a fitness instructor is not rocket science. I had a friend who became a PE teacher. I was way ahead of him in terms of academic performance, but his parents knew his limitations and guided him somewhere more practical and good for him. If you are not going to use your opportunities then that is on you and all families and children need to be aware of that. Life is not a game and you only get with hard work. Stop making excuses. Inevitably kids from broken homes are going to become more wayward and struggle thus adults need to make better relationship decisions. Always excuses with you, Denilson.

    7. Underfunded, whine, whine, whine. How do you learn? You take the initiative and you read and learn. Everything you need is out there. You can learn a language with a cell phone these days, you have access to all the information you need. The school should only be the beginning of education. I tell students all the time that the classroom is only part of it. You need to study in your own time, practice and make yourself a better person. That is education. School budgets? Always excuses. If you have a teacher, two parents, and available information resources, then what else are you looking for? A free pass? Affirmative action? Get over yourself a little.

    8. I was laughing at your last post because frankly you are funny. I agree with you on some things like multinational corporations exploiting countries, but on others I think you excuse a complete lack of self responsibility. The chap I sat next to in primary school is a junky with a long criminal past. It is awful of course, but it was his choice. I chose differently. Both white and that's life sometimes. We all have it rough and either you sort it out or you don't.

    Two more posts to go. I wish you well Denilson and hope you get the chip off your shoulder. People do more often than not choose to be poor. If I go out partying like I was 25, I would get poor again and likely dead too. Choices.

    Yes I suspect that a 100% of white people are racist. That means, like you are doing, that you are seeing things in a way that favour your own race and I'm not mad at you. I expect that.

    I believe that all white people raised in a society where racism has been and still is so prevalent will have internalized elements of racist thinking: certain beliefs, stereotypes, assumptions, and judgments about others and themselves.

    So in countries where beliefs in European/white superiority and domination have been historically placed, everyone in such places will have soaked up some of that conditioning.

    I've never said white people evil. I never said that white people hate black people.

    Notice more white supremacist love in.

    Less than 22% of the world is white.
    Less than 11% of the world is white and male.
    Less than 2.3% of the world is white, male and speaks English.

    Yet they run the BBC, CNN, the New York Times, Harvard, Penguin, Oxford and Cambridge, Facebook, Twitter. They write most of the Hollywood films. They write most Wikipedia articles. English-speaking white men own and run nearly all the main bits of the Vast Talking Machine.

    The white English speaking male POV is often taken as the truth.

    That's why when I come here with a different perspective from the white supremacist viewpoint that you think, you find what I say crazy.

    Many people in the world learn most of what they know about the world at large from English-speaking white men, from 2.2% of that world, a 2.2% that has a white supremacy view on things. This is a warning against being overly dependent on any one part of the world for your knowledge of the world as a whole.

    Many black people think like me. My brothers, My fathers, My friends.

    But let me be clear on something.

    I'm not trying to persuade you or anyone in Saddo

    This is where you fking up. You're thinking I'm trying to persuade you and others and then fault me for the way I go about it.

    Once again.

    I'm not trying to persuade you or anyone in Saddo

    To persuade people. You need three things:

    1. Gain the reader’s trust.
    2. Appeal to the head.
    3. Appeal to the heart.

    Hitler said you just need the last. In any case, my style of writing in regard to whites lacks the first and the last. So it will not persuade most of them because persuading whites to give up the benefits of racism, to become outcasts from white society, to face their shame and guilt at benefiting from a racist society – all that is way, way, way beyond my powers.

    I write about white people and racism for my own understanding.

    And bear in mind. I don't start these racialized topics in saddo.

    And here's the really fked up thing

    You expect me (A black man) to write to white supremacist point of view.

    As if there are not enough people doing that already.

    That my posts are such an affront to you speaks VOLUMES about the racism you posses, where even a single small instance of contrary opinions are a threat to you. And causes you to erupt like a hilarious volcano.

    You predictably lost control of yourself as totally evidenced by your latest comments. But it's not just my opinion. It's all there in black and white for all to see. You began making a token attempt at being coherent and..... when you found you were dealing with a mature adult..... you've reverted back to your snide comments, lacking any logic with which to defend your laughable beliefs.

    (See above). I'd only add that you use the word "suspect" a lot, which of course gives you an "out" whenever reality sets in and you look back in horror at all the nonsense you've posted.

    I appreciate your efforts in trying to translate what I'm "saying to Miles". Fortunately for both of us, I have a perfect grasp of the English language, and I tend to not talk in "double speak." I got something to say...... I say it.

    Quote Originally Posted by TitoFan View Post

    Yes I suspect that a 100% of white people are racist. That means, like you are doing, that you are seeing things in a way that favour your own race and I'm not mad at you. I expect that.

    No..... of course you're not mad. Why would anybody be mad at a whole race they SUSPECT of feeling 100% superior to your own? No...... you're above that.

    I believe that all MANY white people raised in a society where racism has been and still is so prevalent will have internalized elements of racist thinking: certain beliefs, stereotypes, assumptions, and judgments about others and themselves.

    Now you're close to making a little sense, but I fixed it up for you a little bit. You've long ago made up your mind about me without even knowing me, but I don't make that same mistake. I'll gladly contribute to your maturation process.

    So in countries where beliefs in European/white superiority and domination have been historically placed, everyone many people in such places will have soaked up some of that conditioning.

    Same as above. No charge.

    I've never said white people evil. I never said that white people hate black people.

    No.... it just oozes out of every sentence you write. If you supposedly think so highly of white people, you're being very contradictory by thinking they're so naive they're gonna believe bullshit like those last two sentences.

    Another comment that does not deserve a response. But no..... you don't hate white people.

    At some point the best of us will lose interest in trying to rehabilitate you. Your youth is no excuse either, as I've known plenty of 20 and 30-year olds who would run rings around you in maturity and emotional intelligence.

    So the rest of the comments in your post will go unanswered simply because at some point the amusement stops and the annoyance begins.

    If you still feel and express yourself the same way in 20 or 30 years from now, you will have lived a sad, miserable little life.
