Is it really necessary for it to be two ancestral parents? Will that not result in inbreeding?
What's far more likely is that a bunch of humans were born from our closest genetic relatives as per evolution. The egg came before the chicken.

We are a part of a big family just not from a common mother and father.

Pants-of-dog wrote:Obviously, you cannot explain how these comments are not racist.
Does someone else want to try?
Pants-of-dog wrote:Also, many of us have had to deal with racism, and this was one of the racist things that was said to me by an openly racist person.
Pants-of-dog wrote:I have demonstrated how the comments are racist by providing a source that shows how that phrase has been used throughout US history as a racist attack against immigrants.
BigSteve wrote:Your argument fails because you, and other Trump haters, fail to put his comments into the proper context. If you fail to do that, there's no reason in the world to approach any conversation with you in a serious manner...

annatar1914 wrote:Seems to me that the only proper safeguard against ''racism'' and even class inequality to start with in a discussion is beginning with the common sense truth throughout time of our monogenetic rather than polygenetic origins as human beings, that we human beings today came from one set of original ancestral human parents. Anything else is racist or lends cover for belief in racism and class inequality.

In the midst of a national controversy about President Donald Trump’s inflammatory tweets towards minority congresswomen, a store clerk at an Illinois convenience store has been fired after he was caught on video telling customers to “go back to their country.”
Hindsite did not understand a word of the quotes he posted.

blackjack21 wrote:It is. However, it also forces Democrats to replay the "deplorables" sentiment expressed by Hillary Clinton about blue collar working class people who ended up voting for Trump. It's a deep psychological game, as I noted earlier.
blackjack21 wrote:A traditional Marxist won't. The cultural Marxist perhaps deserves a different name, because that philosophy relies on post-modern philosophy rather than modernism or materialism.
blackjack21 wrote:What I find fascinating about adherents of Evolution is that they are adamant that it is correct, until we apply it to human beings.
blackjack21 wrote:Black people use the n-word all the time.
blackjack21 wrote:He just argued that you deliberately misquoted Trump, which you did. I already provided Trump's actual statement. You just rephrased Trump's words into what you wanted Trump to say. If your argument is about what Trump said, what he said is relevant to your argument. You are just deliberately dropping context to make it appear that Trump said something he didn't say, so you can justify feeling outraged and hope that you can get other people to feel outraged as well. Race clearly wasn't the basis of his comments, or he would not have used "progressive" as a qualifier. He also would not have used "Congresswomen" as a qualifier.
noemon wrote:Despite the fact that I have asked you to explain how that is, you are still unable to do so, clearly because you have no argument other than empty accusations. But since you insist so much:
Trump wrote:So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly ...and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how ....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!
blackjack21 wrote:He was being very specific.
blackjack21 wrote:Ethnic bigotry is a separate question from racial bigotry.
Hindsite wrote:That is because they do not prove the comment was racist. If it was meant to be racist, Trump would not have added at the end, "come back and show us how it is done." A racist would not say, "come back? A racist would say, "don't come back" or "stay away."
Kaiserschmarrn wrote:Yes, the group that people call cultural marxists are almost always postmodernists. The traditional marxists and postmodernists share to some degree the "fetishisation" of the oppressed and assign to them moral virtue (although the favoured groups are different), but you can have a discussion based on reality and empiricism with marxists which is not guaranteed with postmodernists.
noemon wrote:Black people have no racist intent against each other, if you were to use it however towards Black people that would a be a different story.
noemon wrote:Aside from the fact that Trump considers these women as separate from the United Stated nation, he is explicitly saying that these women cannot be telling the US how it is to be run due to their origins. Their jobs as Congresswomen however is to do exactly that.
noemon wrote:As long as we all agree that Trump has engaged in ethnic-bigotry, it matters little if ethnic bigotry qualifies as "racism" in your semantic opinion. This is great progress for you as well as Hindsite:
noemon wrote:I like how Hindsite has totally acquiesced to the reality that his tweets were totally racist but the only thing apparently not making them racist is his empty rhetorical task about them "going back-fixing imaginary countries with magical powers-then combing back".
You guys are 99.9% there already, congratulations.
I for one like Intelligent Design, not because I think it's 100% right, but because Evolution is incomplete, obviously. What I find fascinating about adherents of Evolution is that they are adamant that it is correct, until we apply it to human beings.

Yes, because for most of it's history mankind didn't know shit about biology.
Nowadays we know every little detail
and people who still reject evolution are simply dumbasses.
