Default In the vein of the slavery thread, I heard the most racist line of argument ever...

I was out with some friends from highschool the other night, and one of them brought along a buddy of his from Tulane who is in town visiting for a while. We were talking about sports, and the conversation led to a discussion of the breeding of african slaves for size and strength and the repression of knowledge and murder of slaves who could read. This leads to the guy who was visiting (from Alabama, incidentally) starting to talk about how blacks in the south are stupid.

His line of argument was that after emancipation all of the "smart" slaves left the south to look for work in the north and in some cases out west, leaving all of the "dumb" blacks behind to reproduce and doom all future generations of southern blacks to stupidity, therefore justifying southern racism and the racist notion that blacks are less intelligent than whites.



I immediately told him what a load of horse**** that is and that it's extremely racist. It's ridiculous that so many people still cling to old ideas of racial inferority or superiority. I think the problem is that people in general are just stupid.

I think about that everytime I hear Lil John on the radio.

So rednecks from Alabama don't hate black people from the North? Or was this guy just distracted by his dad's balls in his mouth?

CT,

This would be about the 101st time I've heard that reasoning/tale in my lifetime and it's come from folks on both sides of the color line in regard to intelligence and the Black experience in America.

If the guy is from Alabama, that speaks for itself. Alabama, Mississippi, and Arkansas are the armpits of the country.

It's not a valid argument at all. Fleeing just meant some had bigger balls to leave than others. Some may have had big families and couldn't leave at all. Some may have felt it was too dangerous to venture to unknown places.

Speaking of balls, my great great grandfather and uncle left their home in VA when the war broke out, travelled to Connecticut, joined the Union army, and returned to VA to fight the confederacy in their home county.

Stupid people are everywhere, and racism knows no state boundries, your insinuation here is just as ignorant as the guy youre complaining about.

Wow I think you guys are using the biggest words I've seen in OT before.

It is not fair to hold someones racial or religious background against them. It's not fair to you and it is not fair to the constitution of the United States. All men were created equal, those who choose not to believe that are blinded by their own ideals. They are the ones who are stupid, not those that do not know anything. Ignorance is a lack of knowledge, stupidity is having knowledge but not using it as it was intended. The oppression of african decedents was morally wrong, those people were mostly blinded by their religious beliefs as they believed they were descendents of Kane, that is stupidity in it's worst form. There is no difference in intelligence between the races, each person is different, some choose not to learn and to continue a life in constant chaos, no set path, no reason for living. Some choose to learn and better themselves and along the way end up helping others. Each person chooses which path would make them happier in the long run.

In summation, race does not determine intelligence or fate, each individual determines that for themselves.
