Re: White Supremacy Acquits Zimmerman

Or maybe you're just wrong. I'm here for the debate - I just don't think we agree. I also suspect that time will prove me right about this Zimmerman issue, though I accept that I could be wrong. So...

Re: White Supremacy Acquits Zimmerman

I think you're conflating judgment based on a person's attire or visible participation in a subculure with actual racism. If Zimmerman thought Martin looked like a thug from making an assumption...

My bad.



OK. Would you say Zimmerman got off on a fluke?

Re: White Supremacy Acquits Zimmerman

It actually is. The thing about the whole issue is that, in the state of Florida, Zimmerman was within his rights to defend himself with lethal force once a verbal confrontation turned into him being...

That doesn't mean that a 17 year old Martin didn't overwhelm a 35 year old Zimmerman.



Advice is not the same as a command or even an instruction. Advice is basically a suggestion.

Re: White Supremacy Acquits Zimmerman

17 is around the physically prime for a young man. One more year and Martin would have been fit for military service. Or maybe Zimmerman was a wimp - but that's not the same as breaking the law or...

Re: White Supremacy Acquits Zimmerman

Does that make him racially white? Does it even make him ethnically an Anglo white American?




I think there was a misunderstanding about this point.

The logic here is that if Zimmerman, a...

Re: White Supremacy Acquits Zimmerman

Re: The Virgin of Guadalupe question

Honestly, I don't think I could live like that. I tend to go all in.

Maybe that makes sense of the people I see who pretty much seem to make it a point to be what a Christian would think of as a...

Re: The Virgin of Guadalupe question

I don't understand Catholicism in general. Growing up, religion was really associated more with superstition by me and my friends. I guess being on the agnostic atheist side is what led me to...

Re: The Virgin of Guadalupe question

My understanding was that tradition says that La Virgen made her apparation as a way of showing her favor for or protection of the indigenous peoples. Is that not correct?

Re: The Virgin of Guadalupe question

The history I already know. The possible connection to indigenous practices, etc., but I'm looking more for people's personal meaning.



This is something that I can understand. I wonder if this...

Re: The Virgin of Guadalupe question

My location says West Texas. Currently, I'm back there.

One day I was walking down the street and passed by several houses with a kind of shrine to La Virgen in their front lawns. One of these...

The Virgin of Guadalupe question

So I grew up in a family that was nominally Catholic but non-practicing. Maybe a better way to describe it would be that there was a generational drift away from Catholicism; I myself am a Nichiren...

Re: Mexicans Are Lazy? Indians Believe So

The Spanish brought Christianity as a method of subjugating the native people and emphasized obedience and humility. I think that has tainted the mindset of mestizo culture with the idea of resting...

Re: Did you ask yourselves about Islam?؟

No.. I prefer music as well.

On the rare occasion that I do watch TV, though—if it is Spanish programming—I usually just kick back and marvel, longingly, at the political incorrectness of it all....
