Isn't it racist to assume that there is any race other than the human race?

How would you even know if the person who has a similar skin tone to you actually has ancestors from a specific part of the world?

Does starbucks count "race" via the one-drop rule?  If a white guy hangs out with Obama, is he hanging out with someone of his own race?  If a black guy hangs out with Obama, is he hanging out with someone of his own race?

Want to start a conversation about race?  How about by admitting that it's an arbitrary, and useless social construct?

Stop treating people differently simply because of their ethnic background.

In a windowless classroom at an Arcadia tutoring center, parents crammed into child-sized desks and dug through their pockets and purses for pens as Ann Lee launches a PowerPoint presentation.

Never read it before.

Won't ever stop reading it now.

FWIW, yes, that is Mohammed, not just some generic muslim.

Here is the much-anticipated first edition of Charlie Hebdo since last week’s massacre — with a cover proclaiming, “All is forgiven.” It’s not clear if the cartoon on the cover shows a generic Musl…

Free speech can be ugly, provocative, hateful, boring, juvenile, and lack any redeeming qualities – but it is still worth fighting for.

Those cultures that cannot accept this, and insist on reacting to speech with violence, are our mortal enemies, both on the physical and spiritual plane.  People who insist on "speech codes" or try to prevent "hate speech" or engage in any other sort of censorship enforced by the threat of violence by institutions, governments, or individuals, are evil, and wrong.

The attack on Charle Hebdo is essentially the logical extreme of political correctness – those who have been fighting to make the world conform to their ideas of proper speech are the progenitors of these kinds of terrorist acts.

More than 1 million people filled the boulevards and avenues of central Paris Sunday, walking arm-in-arm in a dramatic procession of national unity in the wake of terrorist attacks that killed 17 people last week.

KYLE: That's because there is no goo, Mr. Cruise. You see, I learned something today. Throughout this whole ordeal, we've all wanted to show things that we weren't allowed to show, but it wasn't because of some magic goo. It was because of the magical power of threatening people with violence. That's obviously the only true power. If there's anything we've all learned, it's that terrorizing people works.

JESUS: That's right. Don't you see, gingers, if you don't want to be made fun of anymore, all you need are guns and bombs to get people to stop.

SANTA: That's right, friends. All you need to do is instill fear and be willing to hurt people and you can get whatever you want. The only true power is violence.

Hear the speech about intimidation and fear Comedy Central was too afraid to play.

Today’s terror attack on Charlie Hedbo, the irreverent French satirical magazine that was one of the few media outlets in France to publish the original ‘Mohammed cartoons,’ is an attempt by Islamic fundamentalists to enforce shari’a worldwide, even on non-Muslims.We must not let them succeed.Self-censoring out of fear means self-imposition of shari’a (Islamic law).

"To be important to society, a woman merely has to be; a man has to do in order for his life to have any meaning to anyone other than himself. I think it was ManWomanMyth who said our society reduces men from human beings to human doings."

Couldn't help but hear Janet's "What Have You Done For Me Lately" while reading that line :)

As we work our way up to the International Conference on Men’s Issues, we will be re-running many old classics to help people understand the real Men’s Human Rights Movement. Here we reprint one of…

Money quote:

“For the past, at least, 25 years, I’ve been told to do more and more to keep a woman. But nobody’s told me what they’re doing to keep me."

As a happily married man with a woman who makes me feel like I'm the most amazing partner in the world, I obviously escaped the "sexodus", but I remember struggling with the pathologies described in the article before I met my soul mate.

While perhaps not the most romantic thing in the world, relationships are built on give and take, and it becomes dysfunctional when we create a system where all the give is on one side, and all the take is on the other.  This can obviously happen both in misandrist and misogynist ways, but wherever the pendulum was in the past, it's obviously moved quite severely in a misandrist direction.

Make sure to check out the Part 2 as well – very insightful stuff.
