    Zero marriages. Zero children. Zero credit card debt. I pay in full every month. I've been gainfully employed for 10 years at the same job and am going nowhere...well until education sadly privatizes. Then, I could be ****ed.

    From the little I read I think One Brow's point would be better served if he used the term tribalism instead of racialism that is so close to racism that is pretty much impossible to separate between the two. Not the idea behind the word but the words themselves. They're so similar it will cause a visceral reaction from ppl.

    With this I'm not saying I agree with One Brow's views or those from others in this thread cause I only read about 2 pages (maybe).

    Okay........

    Yes, that explains Serge Ibaka's freakish athleticism. The breeding of his ancestors. In the Republic of Congo. In Africa. DOH!

    So if your statement is true, it would be easy to test and prove that African Americans are physically genetically superior to Africans. That proof should be fairly easy to find, so I'll be waiting for your post of the scientific study.......

    If this nonsense is correct then wouldn't it also apply to mental and emotional attributes. African americans were bred to be subservient to authority, less intelligent, less independent and less intellectually curious?

    I highly doubt that a few centuries is anywhere near long enough to affect such a substantial change in the genetic makeup of a people.
    Well said

    This environment was evolutionarily harsher than Africans who were struggling to survive in Africa?

    Is that how it is defined on planet kennykyle? Well, here on Earth that is not the definition, dictionary.com:

    a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

    That you think your comments were in any way relevant to my comments is one of the reasons we know you are steeped in racial prejudices.

    One is naturally an extension of the other. I deny your attmepts to seperate the two. They go hand in hand and always will.

    That's how it is used by people who stody the phenomenon. Dictionaries are great for looking at popular conceptions, less so if you want to discuss concepts in detail. Also, there is nothing in your definition to indicate it is an individual belief, as opposed to a cultural belief (that is, part of the milleu of beliefs associated with the members of a given culture).

    Naturally, cultural associations are an extension of individual associations. Naturally, you can't separate them. That does not prevent you from distinguishing them.

    I expect nothing more than denial from you, though. Feel free to refuse to distinguish the two concepts. Feel free to misunderstand me when I discuss them. Feel free to think you are making some sort of contribution to the dialogue when you post based on those assumptions. You only need ot convince yourself, after all.
