Well yeah, of course. There's all kinds of privilege out there. I also speak English. That gives me insane advantages. Do I have language-privilege?

I'm still waiting for my "white privilege" membership and benefits to kick in, still haven't received either one yet.

Thanks for that stark affirmation of my own experience. And it is very stark, for example, most of Europe is at least 2-3x more racist - if one were to take that single, simple question as a true barometer. You think people would be answering that question honestly? The US has HUGE racial problems,...Jump to post

And despite all this, if one were to travel and live around the world, the US is one of the LEAST racist societies on earth. Period.

So you don't think their move on attitude is due to one of the other TATL crew starting to make a bid to purchase then ultimately dismantle..... see other thread on IAG share purchase....

I take it that you don't often travel through London Heathrow Airports World class Terminals 2 and 5 then because they are completely the opposite to what your referring to plus both were built well after 1990 so saying crap like 'lost the plot completely' somewhere around 1990 is ridiculous and im...Jump to post

I think everyone can agree that the 2nd Amendment is poorly worded as there is no clear definition of what a "well-regulated militia" is or under what terms is it "necessary to the security of a free State" or which arms would fall under its scope. Nope. I'm quite happy the way ...Jump to post

FDR's Administration .... Turned away a ship of German Jewish exiles from landing in the US. They could find no one to take them in N.A., and they ended up in Europe somewhere.
