What's one girl when there's a billion?
Really can't categorize people accurately and put the in compartmentalized boxes based on race & ethnicity.
Met a man from Cuba who swam via inflated inner tube tire to Florida over 20 years ago.
Now the guy has over 20 houses of rental properties in Penn State and is sitting on low key millions.
@destraht Come now Destraht. You seem like an intelligent guy. You should know that there's no correlation between IQ and secular success. IQ is based off a European model for cognitive development relevant to the culture.
It's like Blacks making a model for intelligence based around musical aptitude and athletic prowess applying it to Europeans. Reasoning that creativity and physical aptness are a direct expression of neural efficiency.
Or Latin Americans basing Intelligence around an individual's propensity to be communally sociable and coherent.
Can't really objectively judge another culture's values through the lens of your own without glaring biases.Read More
For those who may not be able to read the article in full leisure reading is at in all-time low in the States has been attributed to the existence of television.
It really does make people stupid.
@jwayne You know it's interesting. African cultures are generally derided and looked down upon.
However, male polygamy that formed within these cultures correspond more with our intrinsic sexual make-up than contrived Western monogamy.
One man has multiple wives & even if it two weren't virgins at least there's a higher likelihood of one of them to be than being bound to just one.
@Chaddeus_Rex Because biology. In short the more partners a woman's had the more her brain becomes desensitized to the chemicals necessary to form long term relationships. That's why promiscuous women are typically called broken.
@destraht Yeah, it would in reverse if the China were Trillions in in debt to the US. China's losing respect for the US because it feels like America's economic pimp!
There's little wonder why they're treating the US like they own it. The States brought it on itself though.
If it had legitimately focused on educating "all" it's citizens to be to be productive contributors for the sake of internal self sufficiency maybe it wouldn't have to suck off the teat of cheap Chinese commerce to the point of being head deep in debt.
@TheStoicCrane Oh give me a break man. Do you really think that it would work like that in reverse? Say the Chinese started dominating an exciting sport and one person of one unit of say 20-30 made a comment critical of the US. There might be a small boycott of the Chinese brand by individuals and fragmented groups and that is it. Do you think that the US government would be willing to ban that industry for it? I say that the US doesn't work like that. We are expected to treat China as a collection of individuals when it suits them and then to play the hyper cancel culture The Party speaks for a billion offended people game when it suits them. "their government would feel slighted". WELL FUCK THEIR GOVERNMENT! How is that? Oh noes some feudal lords who've hardly worked in their lives are offended. Oh fucking noes! Not that now. Honestly I prefer hysterical street 3's to that shit. The US and Europe have a lot of problems but when government stooges say that they are offended we tell them to suck the cock harder. Its the way that we like it.Read More
