The thing about me is that I'm practically white, if you didn't know that already (which I thought you did).

I honestly thought you were black, not that that really matters. Iím just trying to finally convince red that the pieces of advice I offered had nothing to do with race. Oh, and what exactly do you mean? I really hope you donít mean youíre acting white, as thatís one conception I think should be stricken from popular discourse as soon as possible

No, no, I mean that I am effectively white and white-identified.  Half European, half close-enough.

I'd bet that it's the small-town petit-bourgeois thing that he wants to get away from the most.

On second thought after looking at the IRS income distributions again, no, Iím very much from the upper class (Top 5% starts at 150k a year Top 1% at a little under 300). My aspirations are still a lot higher than where I came from, but still.

Yeah, me.

Yeah, BB is not the same in my book as he was when he came on.  If he hadn't "adjusted" I would have just stopped reading his posts like I have with other posters.  I just don't like the style and I think he takes it to the extreme.  I didn't like it about Stan, but I think he more frequently departed from it to make a J type argument.  If BB has actually done this, I have not seen it. I may have incorrectly conveyed that he is not making an argument.  I think he is making arguments, perhaps I think that more than others think that.  I just think his arguments are in disguise (perhaps as a defense to keep himself from ending up in a situation like he was in when he first showed up).  I wish they weren't.  But then again I wish when someone said something stupid they could just say "my bad, dog" and that would be it, but apparantly that also is not the case.

woah, I take things to the extreme?

LMAO. Judging class by income is the definition of petit-bourgeois.

lol, nice comeback. I'm speaking in an economic sense and you know that. There are other components of "class," but this is most often the defining one in every sitution.

Yeah, me.
