    There is no history of lynchings associated with the Popeye, and Popeye isn't the caricature of all sailors, so I'll be offended at whatever I want to be offended at thank you very much. I remember back in HS in the 1980s when I went to an overwhelmingly white, southern private high school. I purposefully turned a blind eye to all of the racism I saw out of self preservation. One day I saw a fellow student drawing a swaztika on the computer. I was like "Why the hell are you doing that?" He was like "I'm German. This is part of my German heritage." I started to say something....then I realized he used the same argument many of my fellow students used about the confederate flag. (And yes I know not all confederate flag waivers are racists. But the kids that had the KKK cartoon on their dorm wall? Yeah...that was racist.) Anyway...Hitler never did anything to me. He didn't make a habit of mass murdering black people either. But you don't see Jews giving Nazi era cartoons of Jews a pass because of what they are associated with. I don't give the Flit ads a pass. That doesn't mean I've cancelled Dr. Seuss. But just like I can't tell you what you can and can't read, you can't tell me how to feel about what I read or chose not to read. For a reference, Bluto didn't have skinny biceps or oversized forearms, smoke a pipe or get high of spinach. All they had in common was a fetish for skinny women.

    Hmmmm....the coldest weather I have ever been in was 0 degrees F in central Alabama and the propane in the my aunts outdoor tank worked just fine that night. My parents house only had wood heat. (Well I guess we could have plugged in a space heater.) My dad put in a way too big of a lot of fat pine. (If you aren't from the rural South you might not know what that means). Anyway the pot bellied stove was not properly vented out the wall and the house caught on fire. When the volunteer firefighters put the fire out, the water from the spray froze on their coats. During the blizzard of 1993 (18 inches of snow in Birmingham Alabama in March), we had "city" propane and that worked fine as well. Coal is fine, but I'm partial to wood. You can always go out and cut more.

    Are you against class action lawsuits? https://legaldictionary.net/class-action-lawsuit/ Back to the Rosewood example, that you were afraid to address. That was group reparations. The members of the group were black people who had lived in a certain area and had been run out by a white mob. The statute of limitations had run out so filing a lawsuit was impossible. But the reason the statute of limitations had run out was because the victims were afraid to go to the law as the law had participated in the ethnic cleansing. Are you unwilling to actually address the thread? Why is that?

    Not always. Have you never heard of qualified immunity? Statute of limitations? The survivors of the Rosewood massacre were, most of them children, were to afraid, being the victims of mob justice that was backed by a corrupt, racist legal system, to file suit until many years later. So...no justice for them based on a technicality? Groups are made up of individuals. That's what you keep blabbering about when it comes to corporations. Edit: And I see you still are afraid to discuss the actual subject of the thread.

    Awesome! And kudos for Rand for sticking to his principles. I know it might have been tempting in the wake of his run in with BLM crowds last summer to just say "Screw it! You're on your own." Edit: I just realized this got passed in the KENTUCKY legislature. Rand's federal bill addressing the issue still hasn't passed. :(

    I agree with you about the World War II propaganda when it came to the Japanese. But America wasn't at war with any African countries. In fact we were allied WITH the African country of Ethiopia against Italy. Yet Africans and African Americans were treated as poorly as the Japanese before, during and for a while after both World Wars. I agree with you that there were different cultural norms. I am glad those norms changed. It would be interesting to know the publication dates of the offensive Dr. Seuss books as compared to the Lorax and the Sneeds. Interesting observation of the Sneeds and cancel culture of calling the stars "old fashioned." Certainly there is a cultural aspect going on. The interesting thing is that the "star / no-star" style went in and out of fashion. (Like bell bottoms coming back?) From that perspective The Sneeds could address things other than just race, although I looked at it strictly from a race lens possibly due to my own experience.

    Ah. I see. So it wasn't that there wasn't outrage. It's that the outraged people weren't so vocal. I'm surprised they haven't forced Anthony Hopkins and Jody Foster issue a public apology. That said, it's also strange that the idea of "just let adults do what they want with their body" is such a difficult concept. The idea that Buffalo Bill so desparately wanted a sex change that he became a mass murderer after failing the psychological qualifier is as nuts as the current situation of the dad having to fight in court to keep his ex wife from pushing hormone blockers on their son. Rand Paul is right. This isn't complicated. There is no "nuance" here.

    Nope. I'm just not going to pretend that corporations are no different than individuals. You can have a corporation of one individual. Why is that so hard for you to understand? That said, I have nothing against anarchists. You can have civilization without what we call government. You also can have government without having corporations. You can't have corporations without government. A corporation is a government charter. It makes zero sense to say that an entity that has been granted a government license should not have an restrictions placed on that license. You don't like those restrictions? Don't take the license. Just be a partnership.

    We disagree. Reparations to the Jews from the Germans for what was done to them was proper. Same for Japanese for what happened to them in the internment camps. Same for the reparations the Jews got from Egypt in Exodus. I disagree with the reparations the Hatians had to give the French after their revolution. I disagree with the reparations the U.S. Congress gave Ford and GM (more corporations) because the allies bombed their Nazi German factories. Reparations for the survivors of the Rosewood Florida massacre and ethnic cleansing was proper. I'm not sure the OP could really even be called reparations. If the system has STILL been titled towards white farmers, fixing that so that all farmers have access isn't reparations. It's ending discrimination. Unless all farm subsidies were ended except for black farmers, then it's not correct to say this is "stimulus for minority farmers only." Whenever money is pooled and distributed, there is a danger of one group being favored over another. Go back to the Bible and the Book of Acts. The Greeks widows were complaining that the church poor fund was being disproportionately given to the Jewish widows. So...the disciples instituted a church "affirmative action" program where they made sure there were Greek and Jewish deacons to distribute the money.

    What's really disappointing to me about this whole subject, from the right or the left, is that there is no nuance. There is no concept of the fact that people change over time nor is there any thought given to the fact that the same people can hold contradictory ideas. This is Dr. Seuss. It wasn't one of his books, but it was advertisement that he drew from the "Flit" product. Clearly ^that is racist. This is also Dr. Seuss.

    You understand that TheTexan is usually being sarcastic right? As for moral superiority, that would be jackasses running around complaining about little people getting a handout and then turning a blind eye when big corporations get a hand out. Furthermore when individuals get together without a government license that is called a PARTNERSHIP and NOT a corporation. You can have a corporation of ONE PERSON! It's about a GOVERNMENT granted privilege which allows growth while limiting the rights of other people to sue you. I've explained this to you ad naeaum. You're being wilfully ignorant at this point.

    Straw man argument that has NOTHING to do with the irrefutable facts I just presented to you. The farm subsidy program is an example of systemic racism and crony capitalism and should be abolished period. Talk about that and don't try to change the subject.

    I was thinking about this the other day. There is no way The Silence Of The Lambs could be made today. Remember the villain Buffulo Bill? He had gender dysphoria, was denied a sex change operation, and was killing women to cut off their body parts and make himself a suit. The LGBTQIA community got mad at J.K. Rowling for simply writing a book where the villain, who was not transgender, dressed up as a woman as a disguise which is something that actually happened recently in real life. Also the real life man who inspired Hannibal Lecter was a gay Mexican Doctor. While that wasn't brought out (no pun intended) in the film it is strongly hinted at in the TV show.. So someone could say Hannibal was "straight washed" and "white washed." And imagine if Trump had said "even some of the doctors Mexico is sending over are cannibals."
