1. All things beaning equal.

If two men, one Black and one white. Were
drowning and you could save only one. Would
you save the black man or the white man?

XXX,

What tools do I have to perform this rescue?
Give me the setting so I get a better undestanding of the situation.

The word problem that you have given, contains too little information.
I cannot work with it. Its like asking me this:

Two boats are in the the ocean. What is the color of the sky?

Its incomplete. I suggest that you give more information.

Also, Your question operates solely on the color classifications of the two men. Why are Black and White in there? What does color have to do with drowning? I also noticed that you capitalized Black in the first sentence and left white in lowercase. Why did you do that?

If color is removed, the question is:
If two men were drowning and you could save only one. Who would you save?

See how incomplete that is? Give more information and then you will
get the answer you seek. Thanks, XXX.

I would help both men...I would help the one that needs help the most first.

BINGO!

Thats the one I was waiting for.

That one was a "no brainer" for me. As soon as I read; two men are drowning.

I didn't even hafta read the rest...everything else was "nigger product"...all this stuff about:

all things being equal,

one was Black and one was White...one scored 1600 on his SAT...one was left handed...one likes cats one likes dogs...


This is a perfect example of how counter racism code produces Justice as a byproduct of countering racism.

You can't have Justice and niggers in the same universe at the same time.

You can have one or the other, but not both.

The problem with these types of analogies is that under the current supreme political system, people are NOT equal, which makes every word following the phrase "All things beaning equal..." a moot point.

So, what's the use of thinking "outside the box" when your still trapped inside of it?

Another problem with these types of questions is that white people get non-white people to talking about anything except replacing white supremacy (racism) with justice...all types of analogies that of no constructive value while simultaneously all of the problems that exist, which are a result of non-white people being mistreated on the basis of color, staring non-white people in the face.

Did someone just get mistreated on the basis of color?

Follow THE LOGIC.

XXX, by emboldening the words above, did you intend to say that my most recent response to the question did not meet that condition in the bolded font?

If I may jump in here,

I was fortunate enough to get my avatar from webshots, and with some artistic assitance from the virtual.god, I got a tight AV.

The reason I find it so useful as an image, is simply becasue when I talk to people on this board about HOW racism/White Supremacy works, I'm referring to "FUNTION rather than FORM", as josh puts it.

The AV (avatar) shows what I have been taught to be a black female in extremly close proximity to a white woman.

Intrestingly, the white woman has black paint on one side of her face and the black female has white paint on the other side of her face in the same way.

More than anything else to me, that photo shows the dis-connect between the image and the words used to describe it.

Obviously, the contrast between the face-paint and the two females skin tone is overwhelming, at least to me.

This is why I suspect that when a person tells you that they are white, they are describing their abilities rather than their skin COLOR.

COLOR = FUNCTION.

Have a nice day.

Very Interesting Avatar, Smallz.

You should have a "White" Person with half of his/her face painted with White Paint, and then check to see if that Person is even close to being "White"...

From what I could see in your Avatar, the "White" Female looks more like beige or something like that color, Certainly, Not "White"

And the "Black" Female is not even Black!

But

Most People all over the Planet have accepted this without question...

They will each say "Im Black" and "Im White"

and the minute anyone starts to question this...

suddenly, you are:

"Silly"

"Stand-offish"

"Racist"

"Angry Negroe"

"Obsessed with this Counter-Racism shit"

"Downright Crazy"

I now have acknowledged how when someone states that they are "White", they are talking about how they Function.

P.S. How about that baby on my avatar ? Is that a White Child ?

Interestingly enough,

I worked in an "old folks home" and I noticed the older people got, the more difficult it was to tell their racial classification.

PS--Ranger, I'll send you a new avatar as soon as I scan it...its a good one
