What Happens When White Folks Leave? (Detroit)

Recommended Posts

TrueScotsman, if your intent was to change minds then you wouldn't use inflammatory, insulting, and provocative words. You would simply present your case in a non accusatory way. You would use your knowledge and education to convince others that they are headed down the wrong path. But that isn't what you did or are doing. 

 

The way in which you decided to handled this appears to be more about you and your apparent narcissism. I think your real intent was to demonstrate how brilliant you are, or at least how brilliant your think you are, and also how morally superior you are. Again, at least in your own mind. 

 

I have recognized from many of your other posts that you actually are highly educated and intelligent. I also recognize a narcissists when I encounter one. Now I don't think narcissism is necessarily a bad thing, but it sure as hell is annoying and it isn't the best way to influence people and win friends, but narcissists don't care about stuff like that do they? 

 

I'm looking forward to more of your brilliant pontifications. I actually do try and learn from people that are clearly more intelligent and educated than I am, even if they are arrogant assholes.

This is grand, I'm pathologically narcissistic now by Geezer's detectors, which seems to be some highly specialized subjective gut feeling, since he has no credentials as a Psychologist.  I talk the way I do very rapidly, and I state my opinion openly and with passion.  On this site, I've experienced plenty of assholery, on a rather consistent basis in this forum and so I lay it on a little thick because of that context.  I'm not trying to convert people, or win them over to my way of thinking, nor am I concerned with looking smarter than people on the internet.  This thread just inspired me to share my thoughts on the matter, after which I will go back to my normal life of taking care of babies and working and ignoring this dissapointing site which is slowly turning into a safe space for right-wing buffoonery.  

 

I have zero confidence in forums as a means of persuading the people you are actually talking to, unless that person is an exceptional listener and not fully indoctrinated into some worldview, but I now just post to state my own opinions and for the sake of lurkers so they realize some exChristians who come here dissent from all this toxic bullshit.  That makes me a narcissist though, by virtue of having passionate opinions.  My desire to be rude to you came from your attempt to explain away with your pseudo-psychological assessment of my narcissism.  I have PTSD, my fathers the narcissist, I just have a short temper for things like this that piss me off so I choose to avoid it most of the time because communicating here has become a waste of time.

If you were truly an educated person of principle vulgar insults & put downs would be beneath you, but they clearly aren't. I wasn't intending to be insulting when I said you are displaying narcissists traits. I was simply stating the obvious & your last post is just more evidence. 

 

I have similar narcissists tendencies, that's why I recognize those traits in others. Narcissist tend to make great leaders, but have a difficult time making friends for obvious reasons. Like I said, narcissism isn't always a bad thing but the anger issues can become problematic if they are ignored.

Maybe you'd be better off projecting your one problems, when I have my own to deal with.  I have a hard enough living with myself, but in your conception of me I want everyone to worship me.  I have anger problems because I have a gigantic fucking amygdala because I was raped daily by my older brother, but you're the genius, tell me what's wrong with me so I can fix myself.  Its not like I haven't been seen by actual mental health professionals in an active ongoing way to get healthy.  

 

Here's a tip, don't project your own bullshit onto other people when you don't know their whole story and you're not a mental health professional.  Jesus fucking Christ this site... I should just delete this account, I don't know why I come back here..

First of all, you're young and don't perhaps realize how racist ideas evolve over time, what is now referenced as cultural superiority in my mind is just an updated rehashed ideology from the past of white or European superiority.  Its bullshit, we raped African culture for all its worth before it ever had a chance to take off, to now claim at this juncture in history that what now separates us is culture is the height of ignorance IMO.

 

Secondly, Vigile is a clown fed full of Russian propaganda to a degree I have stated on the record is harmful for the forum.  I think the United States needs plenty of criticism, but these Russian clowns want to say that they're the victims and have nothing to say to actually account for just how bad Russia is under Putin.  If he was self-conscious about Russian imperialism, then I wpuld see his critiques about the US as consistent, but being that he supports Putin I call him a clown whose been duped just like we all were under Christianity.

 

Third, racism is belief that one race is superior than another, and to repackage it into culture really is a distinction without a difference in my mind.  Why is African American culture in the state that it is in?  Zero reflection on that, just blanket insults at black people for their work ethic and suboptimal culture, which if they only became more like the whites/Europeans would be better.

 

Fourth, I don't think people who are Socialists are "fools," and I probably have a better understanding for the concept than you.  Socialism doesnt equate to Stalinism or any particular Communism that came from the Soviet Union, it simply implies a belief in the the means of production and their control for perhaps the entire economy or only parts of the economy, and is critical of Capitalism to produce better conditions on the whole for workers which has largely been proven true.  You might think because you live in the US that this is the case, but for most of the workers of global Capitalism in emerging markets that is surely not the case.  I find more notable on this site the sacred cow of Libertarianism, an ode of course to the regional and cultural contexts many American former Christians find themselves in.  Socialists also in Europe have been placated by Russia, such as the Syriza in Greece and have many leftwingers like Richard Wolffe on their programs merely to try and erode any possible consensus.  Even Yanis Varoufakis, whom I think is a serious left winger appears on RT, so I think Europeans leftwingers can't really be trusted to see Putin correctly in my experience.

 

Detroit used to have plenty of jobs, US then transitioned to a consumer led economy where these manufacturing jobs went to Asia largely, and there was insufficient education and opportunities in these regions and the Democrat solution was to then make these people dependent on public housing and welfare and misguided affirmative action to combat this problem.  It didnt address the underlying economic realities and then combatted the problem in a way that exacerbated much of the social problems.  Its not like the Free Market would have had their back, free trade and technological innovation core tenants of Neo-Liberalism gave us these conditions which greatly empower corporations to the detriment to the individual.  I think more broad meanginful investment is needed, not just for African American communities but society wide, a Marshall Plan for education that is much more meaningful at arming our future generations with the skills they will need to be relevant in the productive labor of the future.  The Service Industry is slowly going to be eroded by technology and we will create a useless class as a result, a multi-ethnic useless class unless we take these issues more seriously.  How will the Free Market solve that problem in your estimation?  

 

Wow. At 61 years old, no one has called me young since uncle Methuselah died.

 

I agree with you about Vigiles one sided Russia view, but the rest of what you said isn't much different. Blame the U.S. first for everything under the sun. 

You are so busy wagging your index finger in the air and shouting "1%! 1%!"  and blaming Whitey for ruining the entire earth that you can't focus on anything else.

Just my humble opinion, of course. No offense and all. We're good here, right?
