thats nice he doesnt think race has anything to do with it. i disagree. its obvious to me that if white men dominate a government board when the population is not dominantly white and male that theres something going on there...
You do know that the majority of people in the US and Europe are white, right? So you are going to end up with a majority in other locations. But why do you instantly grasp to something as arbitrary as skin color for the reasons behind these discrepancies? Why isn't it a lack of education opportunities due to poverty? That's a real problem in poorer places in America. Additionally, if being white is all you need to be, why are so many white people in America impoverished along with everyone else? This is less a case of skin color and more a case of rich people being rich, which has precious little to do with race.
he definitely is fearmongering about socialism. you can tell because of how he lumps communism and socialism together and then to purges.
hes making light of people who are intersex. that's pretty shit behavior.
He is not making light of people who are intersex, he is making light of the situation with these acronyms. Significant difference.
ive worked at a university, i know what modules on diversity/inclusivity look like and most people are alright with them since it makes for interactions that are more friendly. (example: someone comes from a small town where out lgbt people are not known or are known only by slurs so they dont know respectful terminology. so, they see a module on lgbt people and learn something and we avoid any unpleasant (hopefully) situations where they use a slur on accident/because they didnt know the right terminology)
Yes, that is what such a module should be, but if run on social justice and made mandatory, it's easy to see how these things can start getting warped. Seriously warped.
i'd rather not watch more of his videos and give him views nor do i want to to write a book on his work. i got a pretty representative look of his views from this one video. i know he thinks racism isn't real, thinks "sjws" are a thing, hates socialism, etc. why would i want to watch more?*snorts*
Doesn't think racism is real? He's said many times that racism is still ap roblem, in the West and everyone else in the globe. Again, you're just spouting these things without even bothering to know the person. As for socialism, only when it takes on certain forms, which is definitely a healthy outlook. SJWs are a thing, I'm skeptical that they're anywhere near as big a thing as he makes them out to be, hence my first post, but yes, they are a thing.
Never attribute to Malice that which can adequately be explained by Ignorance.
Racism is very much indeed real and a problem which could doom humanity, im with you there.
He does not think any differently. However, he does have a problem with people attributing every problem in their lives and those of others to racism, in the absence of proof.
But SJWs are also a thing, just not some organized planned out group like people think they are. Just a bunch of hypocrites and soft skinned people who cant handle the real world and would rather burn bridges and throw tantrums than actually work to better the world for everyone, instead of shunning out the ideas they don't like or oppinions that don't put forth their agenda. And if you complain about them you are obviously indoctrinated by the patriarchy or upset of someone questioning your 'Privilege' an they plug their ears and don't listen to anything that could oppose their thougths.
Which is precisely what he says.
Sadly 'Social Justice Warrior' has become a catch all term for people and ends up muddying the water for those who actually want to do good as they end up being the baby tossed out with the bathwater.
This is also sadly true.
As for Socialism, some socialism is bad other is good. Like how 100% Capitalism is chaos and 100%Communism is also chaos. You know what I mean?
We cant have everything being one sided, balance or a relaxed mix is good and what is needed.
Middle of the road tends to be the pragmatic solution. But good luck getting that to catch on.
Do you believe that your interests can not be represented by somebody of a different sex or race? Because as long as they are competent at there job and i can expect representation from them personally i can not give 2 fucks if they are male, female, black, white, green tall or short. And i especially dont care what makes them go whoopy in there personal life.
But therein lies the problem, some people want positive discrimination, which does away completely with the concept of merit. Everyone, white and otherwise, should not give two fucks what skin color someone has or what sexuality, but neither the regressive left, nor the conservative right seem to be able to let it go.
But yes, some people think that you cannot represent someone's interest unless you share skin color. Which is just as racist as anything else, since it once again implies skin color defines a person, their views and their background. Which it most certainly does not.
Communism is a failed system, this is coming from somebody who lived there, if i really want i can dig up a picture of me when i was 7 with a little cap and a red star on it very cute. It is a system that fails at self correction, democracies self correction is messy but at least there are moments for it so any one individual can only fuck it up so bad.
They do say that democracy is the least bad form of government we can conceive of...
