    My Ratings!!!

    The specialest of ratings!
  5. I could really play some Genesis of Empires right about now haha
  6. More teasing than anything else.
  7. Abdel I'm disappointed it's spelled Ellesai. Also no Colony Builders on that list.
  8. Is it white guilt when Blid complains about being discriminated against because he's Jewish? Because you seem to fail to understand that I am an Arab. There are plenty of people out there who call me ethnic, they don't consider me white because I'm not a WASP. I do not have an English name, I don't have a Protestant background, and for most of my life I've lived in the US as a non-citizen. So please, continue to explain to me how my experiences with discrimination in the southern US is indeed 'White Guilt'.
  9. >Doesn't understand the problem >Won't learn about the problem Cool story, bro.
  10. Well, you don't. Take some sociology courses and go learn about it. Right now, your claim is that it happens everywhere. Can you please provide for me sources that shows this phenomenon happens everywhere?
  11. Nodle, you don't even live in the US. I wouldn't expect you or Steak to understand.
  12. If that's your argument, then you don't understand institutionalized racism.
  13. I think you need to do some research into sociology experiments meant to try and measure institutional racism within the United States. This isn't 'White Guilt' -- I fucking see this shit first hand because my brothers don't look anywhere near as white as me. I got a bit of genetic lottery looking the way I do and not how they look. But beyond that, there's plenty of research into it that exist that proves that institutional racism exists within the US. One of the easiest types of experiments done is to create fake resumes and attach pictures of them. The resumes are identical except for the names and the pictures. Half the resumes are given names that you would associated with black persons, such as Jamal or Tyrone or Shanta, along with a picture of a black male or female. The research always shows the white resumes have a much higher chance of proceeding further along the interview process than the black resumes. When done on a large enough scale, some of these fake candidates will get picked up because of Affirmative Actions, but because of the wide range of jobs and large enough sample size, it won't be enough to make a real difference. The whites will get hired more often, even though the only difference is their names and the color of their skin. That is institutional racism. White guilt and Sarah Palin got Obama elected. Racism and sexism got Trump elected.

    So...

    I don't remember anymore. Is it G92 or G93 that's gay?
  15. I remember there being much an outcry against the police. I think people being primarily pissed off at the store manager. In this particular case, because of the fact that once the police arrived the whole ordeal was peaceful and handled quickly, any outrage against the Police was short lived. That store manager, not so much.
  16. Discord has a phone app that's easy to use.
  17. I'm not assuming anything. If you had done any research into the story, it's extremely clear that these two guys were sitting at the table minding their own business. Their only offense was that they hadn't purchased something from the Starbucks yet. The naive person here, Steak, is you for thinking that there needs to be a reason other than someone's innate racism.
  18. The only reason you're not buying that is because you don't live in America where this is a normal occurrence. White people who are unfamiliar with institutional racism always say the same thing 'There had to be a reason.' whereas Blacks who live it everyday wonder if it'll change.
  19. The city of Tehran has a larger population than all of Israel. Israel can definitely nuke that and wipe it off and technically do more damage than Iran nuking all of Israel. 10 Israeli nukes hitting the 10 largest cities in Iran would wipe out nearly half of Iran's population and most definitely send its economy back into the stone age.
  20. If Iran nukes Israel, Israel will nuke them back. That's the thing about nukes in the Middle East, Israel already has them and has had them for a long time.
