Default the "power" to be racist?

lets discuss this



some of our intellectual leaders when accused of being racist, sometimes respond with something to the effect of " I have no power for me to be a racist"

have you heard this?



to some it may sound crazy, but it actually is quite accurate imo





lets discuss what they mean when they say this

Hmm, good one. Tough for me tho, since it's another language, and thus i could interpret it in a different way.

In my opinion, it something like saying they're too good of a person to be a racist or something. Not in those direct words, and they most likely don't want it to sound like that (cause that would be cocky), but still.

Something like power in a wrong kinda way, the power of stupidity haha. I don't really know.

But why can't people with power (like intellectual leaders) just say something racist? Just shows they are human you know. Everybody has opinions about stuff and people, they do as well. But it's like they have to please everyone, so they can't really give their opinions.

Think it was Mark Twain who said "Any body capable of getting themselves into a position of power, SHOULD NOT be in a position of power"..

But thats the way cookies crumble.

every thread in here is not about race - you have a thread on the bible and pi - stick to that - do not come into threads complaining about what kind of thread you chose to come in - we'll talk about race - if you don't like to talk about race, go talk about the bible and pi -




to those who want to keep the thread intact, please do not entertain ghostlaced with a responce to his nonsense -


i'll leave his post and the replies that were made to him up and alive for a time - but if it turns into a back and forth with ghostlaced, i will either have to lock the thread, or delete post -


lets keep it peaceful and lets learn from each other

Racism also has such a wide range in all kinds of sub-subjects (don't know what else to call them), so it's a good topic to have here imo.
But he probably gets picked on for being white and acting black. So it's mostly frustration. That's my guess. Ghostlace, how far from the truth am i?

ghost,

the quote is "I have no power to be racist".

i other words,

"I cant be racist because i dont have any power to be racist"



ill try n make it easier to comprehend, but dont get scared LOL,

they are saying it is physically and mentally impossible for them to be racist because they dont have the power.

i dont want to explain the "power" part yet casue i want heads to dicuss this





what "power" are they talking bout when they say they dont have the power to be racist"?

Both of you are wrong.
