Relativists too, apparently...

...but we can play your game.

Better according to:

book sales/consumer opinion?
almost all non-post-modernist literary theory?
advance of scientific/philosophical thought?


Face it, some black people can't write well.  Ditto for women. 

...and *gasp* some white man may have done something of merit.

I really do weep for my generation.  They've been indoctrinated by the PC, diversity thought police since birth.  Never stood a chance.


Quoted just in case you try and delete your way out of your bigotry like breadboy did.


I find it telling that you think I'm a bigot for saying not every black person/woman is a great writer and that a white man at some point may have done something of merit.

You just proved my entire point.


 :D :D :D

That wasn't why I was calling you a bigot at all.

I don't think you're particularly capable of understanding why I'm calling you a bigot.  I won't bother telling you until you start guessing closer to the truth.

just pointing out you've never thought for yourself a day in your life.

Alternative perspective = good if it comes from a victimized class because that's the way you've been taught to think

...even if the perspective is stupid, meaningless, etc

Also in LR argument flaw questions the women (often a traditionally black name) are exclusively the "smart" ones.

Tim: If it is raining the driveway will be wet.  I saw the driveway wet as I walked in, so it must be raining!

Yolanda: ...but Tim, you've made a horrible, horrible error in conditional reasoning!


HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Bigotry AND stupidity!

I suggest you look up the name "Yolanda" and tell me if this truly is a "traditional black name" (whatever the @#!* THAT means).

This is my favorite argument of all.  Ignorant and dismissive in every sense of both terms. 

This guy's not on his high horse -- he's on his high UNICORN.

Ooh, fun! This is like when you were playing with the TLSers!


Sort of, only those fuckers wouldn't play!   >:(


I'm thinking this fucker isn't going to play, either.   >:( >:(

It doesn't matter which ideas are stupid or meaningless.

You do agree that they exist out there, right?

...and that women and men and all races can produce ideas that are good or bad?


Well, that's not what you see on the lsac.  Women/blacks/oppressed minorities are 100% correct, have merit, and "good" in their endeavors.  White men are 100% incorrect, stupid, etc.

Really strange coincidence if there's no bias.

So if the names were switcherooed, and someone cited that fact as a premise in an argument antithetical to your own, how strong do you think their case would be?  ??? ??? ??? This seems to be the epitome of specious nitpickery.

...and nobody can tell me why there's never, ever been anything critical of a female or black in the RC section, and nearly every time when there's two speakers the female corrects the male.

If the test doesn't have PC biases in it, that's a really strange 15 year long coincidence, don't you think?

No.
