I skip you long posts, because I just need to read the first sentence, no, just see your name and I already know what it is going to be about.
Then how will you ever know if anyone else has a point or actually can make you see a thing from a different viewpoint? This is in my opinion not really being to open-minded, and, if I can say so, very leftist of you. You don't want to hear any arguments or read anything, just dismiss people, because of who they are or what the first sentence in their post says? I would have missed a lot of god books, articles and posts here on PF, if I thought like that. How will you ever know all the sides of a story? How will you ever progress in your intellectuality if all you see is what you want to see? Why are you scared to read other peoples views? I personally have both the bible and the koran in my book-collection, even though I am not christian or muslim. I have communist and national socialist litterature, even though I don't subscribe to either policy. I read both israeli and arab authors. I watch movies meant for white as well as black audiences. This makes me more qualified to understand and debate on all these topics.
I already said that that kind of approach is a way of compensating for something in my opinion, possibly a hardships faced by immigration of the parents/children at the early period. The reason I say it is because I have seen it a sufficient number of times.
Now who's generalizing....you're even more close-minded than you think I am! You are using the same arguments I am, but attacking me for it! "I've seen it sufficient number of times" aswell...so therefore it must be true. How can you attack me for using the same argument, just on other aspects of life? Holier than thou....
Why would I bother with more discussion if there is nothing overlapping in my and your views. I like to conserve my energy.
Then why have you registered to a debate forum? To comment small one-liners, where you see fit and just be annoying to other people who actually try to have some kind of contructive interaction? I have to tell you, every time I read comments and responses on pages like this, from one-liners like you, it just bugs me. Why do you even bother, to register, to log in, to actually sit down and type; "You're ignorant". Why don't you just read the posts and let it be, if you don't have any constructive to come with IN A DEBATE FORUM.
Do you think that if one does a research proving that actually hating any other nationality is grounded in reality it will make it less racist or less hateful? In my opinion it will not.
I don't hate anyone. I judge people(s) on their character and their actions. Word like "hate", and "racist", are just scare-words in which one can stifle and destroy debates. You seem to like them, even though you say you have read a lot, it doesn't shine through in your posts here. What kind of research have you been doing for the last 4 years, if I may ask? Since you put it out there. Would you use the same argument you used on the guy from Toronto for being hateful, on immigrants who say the same? That the reason they are not performing well in Canada is because of issues that stems from their feeling of inadequacy, their religious and family background? Or is that "racist"? Many of them also hate Canada and Norway, even though they live there. What's the difference between them and the white guy from Toronto, and why do you leap to the immigrants defence so fast, and condemn him for saying the same things?
p.s. Thanks for the long reply!! It actually intrigued me to hear what you had to say.
