Heh; it's not that great actually.

Thought Adam Levine was a black guy.

Henry's white (he looks like papa), Sno's white (she said so), Jason's white (i saw him on Television).

That accounts for 80% of posts right there.

Ned could be an Asian-African American I suppose.

Except for commentary from non-whites on TDPF.

Because they don't exist.


Which proves exactly fucking what?

No - I'm serious. What the fuck are you implying here?

I get that you're attempting to set the terms by which people posting on TDPF get to address topics of race, but i'll be fucked if I can follow what exactly those terms are.

My guess is that you're so conflicted and messed up internally regarding race that you are incapable of articulating your thoughts into anything resembling a coherent argument. Hey, it happens - most Americans are conflicted and messed up regarding race, regardless of the race they happen to be.

But just something's messy doesn't mean we shouldn't talk about it; Meade's just trying to 'quiet room' us, because that's the only conceivable way he can win whatever the fuck argument it is he's trying to make.

Well, fuck off Meade. Your 'racializing' inanity means fuck-all to anyone of intellectual substance, so why don't you take your witless, embarrassingly-disingenuous bullshit and cram it where the sun don't shine?

Nice and black there...

Cool. Now you can finally end the controversy.

Is it easy or no?

It's not easy. Fortunately, I've been up to the challenge.

Like LLCoolJ, I've gotta thank God - cause He gave me the strength to rock hard.

A related question that I was once asked by a friend from Milwaukee: Is Madison segregated? I used to think no, until I lived in Madison. It’s probably not as bad as in areas of Chicago, but now I would answer yes, Madison does have some segregation. Should it?
No, of course not. Is that the reality? I think it is. Anyone disagree?
I would like to hear the reasoning.

Related to TDPF, I think people have other priorities than spending time on a forum. It’s more a choice of how one spends their time than anything else: PS3, TV, reading, out with friends, or another online site perhaps? I hoped for more responses in my Holiday Traditions thread other than European-descent or Americanized traditions. Or even some Jewish or Quanza experiences would have been fun to hear about. I did enjoy all the posts, don’t get me wrong! I like to learn about how cultures other than mine celebrate life events, whether it be holidays, cooking, birthdays, adulthood, marriage, death, religion, all that stuff is interesting and gives me perspective and appreciation.

The Republican primary and TDPF have two things in common concerning nonwhites: They (nonwhites) don’t care about it. They don’t spend/waste their time on the subject because it’s not relatable. Races that have been oppressed are too smart to believe the GOP bullshit about the American Dream and that they can become a millionaire overnight. Why the honkies down South buy it, I just don’t get.

I honestly could give less than two shits about the GOP primary, and Newt’s hypocrisy is so blatant I want to puke. The way he is now bullying the press also makes me sick. He is a man-pig.

All our ancestors, except Native Americans, were immigrants to this country at one time or another. Remember that the next time you think someone's culture is strange. People probably thought that about your relatives too, way, way back when. My father was an immigrant who got his U.S. citizenship when he was 18.

Just a general FYI in case anyone cares: an ethnic term + “American” is not hyphenated: Asian American, African American, European American. It doesn’t matter where in the sentence the noun is.
No offense, just putting it out there for y'all. :)

I'm going to invite Derrell Connor to join TDPF, or at the least, come and visit.

Derrell hosts the radio program "Outreach" on WIBA.

Mr. Connor,

First off, I enjoy your radio show and always like hearing your perspective. That is why I am contacting you.

I am a frequent poster on Isthmus' "Daily Page Forum" where we frequently discuss issues regarding race. In the wake of, and in response to, a thread that discussed the recent South Carolina Republican primary (where exit polls indicate only 1% of voters were non-white), I started another thread to discuss the ethnic makeup of the Forum's posters. It is an all-white board in my opinion.

I would like to invite you to join in the discussion, or at least visit. We discuss issues like Madison Prep, often with the participation of decision makers like School Board members and it is a shame that we do this in all white context.

I understand if it is not worth your time or bother as forums can be nasty, and this one is no exception. And I freely admit that I have been guilty of creating some of the bickering too. But, if you are curious, here is a link to my topic, as well as the South Carolina primary topic:
