“There is nothing bad about…preferring to associate with white people” A Review

whitepeopleokay

There has been a lot of back and forth over Connie Chastain’s arguments for “cultural superiority” and “white preference.” Connie contends these are not racist revelations, whereas other bloggers such as Corey Meyer and Brooks Simpson disagree. Personally every time I see an anti-multiculturalism argument, I automatically think of this little ditty.

    yes you would think of something silly as that. Hate goese in many directions, all one has to do is read commnets by you and Al Mackey on you Sumter pages, to see a good example of hate and bigorty

    1. Now George, you know as well as anyone that “hate” and defending oneself after being insulted are two different things. I’m sure you’ll figure that out someday.

  2. Now Rob, you know as well as anyone that “hate” and a preference of association are two different things.

    Do you believe that, regarding association, preference for the dissimilar is superior to a preference for the similar?

    Do you believe that a preference for one thing means that you hate everything else?

    Are there some people that you prefer to associate with rather than others? Would you prefer to associate with Joey rather than me? Is the criteria you use to prefer Joey to me the only legitimate criteria for determining when preferring one above another is acceptable?

    So anti-multicultural arguments bring to your mind a profane, obscene, vulgar, artistically inferior, poorly animated cartoon series? How scholarly and intellectual! It doesn’t enhance your argument, though.

    You disagree that there is nothing bad about…preferring to associate with white people? Meaning that you believe there IS something bad about white people preferring to associate with white people. Tell me what. What’s bad about it?

    1. Oh Connie, I’m not answering your questions. It’s my blog. Quite frankly, you ask enough questions on your blog which I, from time to time, answer. So I think it is your turn. I am much more interested in your answers. I’d like to know, why do YOU prefer to associate with white people? Is it the Euro-exceptionalist view of Christian culture that you have? Or is it something else?

      Critics disagree with you about South Park. It has won Emmy Awards and is nominated for another currently. I know you’ll have a retort for that but….well…I don’t care about that either. Profane, obscene, vulgar, are all matters of subjective perspective of right and wrong. Artistically inferior and poorly animated? It’s meant to look the way it looks, that is part of the artistry.
