You're just a little jaded and warped if you go to bed at night crying you're not a minority in America. Advantage? I soberly and sincerely have to place this belief in the betting system category AZ. I wouldn't say I would be disappointed being born a minority, but I'm sure life would be more difficult. If you would say having a foreign origin country might be at an advantage, I might agree if deportation would be the punishment for crimes instead of imprisonment. I've seen this kind of story in legitimate news and not just rant sites.


I'm not saying I am not happy being who I am, I said there is big money in being a minority. Colleges and employers have quotas to fill no matter how much they deny that. If you are in sports the media fawns all over you. There are scholarships just for you. There are federal set asides. You can play up "white guilt" on a certain % of people.

Minority <> Immigrant. Deportations should happen more, but too much money and power at stake.

I'm in the process of coining not a new word, but a little noticed trend, Denuminization of the Traditional Male.

The word 'denuminizaton' is rarely used and hard to find online, so you have to go to the definition of 'numinous' which is used.

This is like being in a casino being able to gamble at an advantage and saying everyone has an advantage when the rest are doomed. It's not a situation I would be jealous of always being denied the benefit of the doubt and casually ignored for no real reason by a large segment of the population. All the examples of benefit based on race are minor compared to the rest.

More legal pot should free up police resources to focus on real crime... or maybe allow them to lay off the ones who just want to get their gun off

Also, I love how pot supporters (many of whom support gun control) always ignore stories like this:

Young man leaps to death after eating pot-laced cookie

They're almost as intellectually dishonest as (most) abortion and gay marriage supporters.

The guy was from the Congo, his friends might have been planning to eat him?

Like Ron White says "you can't fix stupid". And I just came up with a corollary for that, you can't fix stupid but you sure can make stupid. lolol, that right there now that's funny.

I think you would support some kind of personal responsibility in this, am I right? Just like the other portion of this quote about firearms [which I support] if someone puts a firearm to their head and pulls the trigger, what happens then? It seems you always want to create this paradigm where the devil weed is the greatest evil since [your choice], it ain't. Not even close. Used properly marijuana is about as dangerous as brocolli.
