The person who created that meme expected people to ignore everything but the intended bias. In other words, it's just another meme, and Glacier's assessment (based on my interpretation of his accompanying comment) is, I think, spot on.

You are correct. Sorry, it's dark humour. I'm not sexist... some of my best friends are women. LOL, I've been reading too many "Amazing Atheist" tweets lately.

to be fair, Kayne did just call slavery "a choice." Ya, like those rounded up in Africa and put in chains and made to march to the ports where they were held in sweltering compounds until the next ship could take them out .... well, you get the idea.

Choice? :135:

i've heard something like this before (from Tommy Sotomayor i think)

If i remember correctly the idea is not that they chose to be slaves over living free with their family/tribe in their village

Its that they then chose to go on in that life of bondage and chose not to revolt (with death being an almost sure consequence)

I'm going to say that plenty made a choice to revolt and were made examples of.

Thiis is another hoax Joe. Perhaps you didn't notice that they spelled Waters with two V's instead of a W. How embarassing it must be to get duped so often.

LOL she is pretty stupid. How does it feel to have such an idiot for a leader? [icon_lol2.gif]

It's a good chance she would say something like that. :up:

You might want to check the facts on that one as it appears to be fake.

With all due respect Joe, someone who is consistently fooled in this manner is not in a position to be calling other people stupid.

The loony “right” is so gullible. They can’t fact check and are constantly fooled by fake news.

I’m afraid you’re a prime candidate for scammers Joe. Better start thinking twice about things before you end up wiring all your money to Nigeria.

The loony right like to try and convince themselves they are intellectually superior to the left, but there are plenty of posters and entire threads (eg joe's thread) that support the findings from actual research that show quite the opposite.
The ability to suspend judgment and change your mind when warranted is a distinguishing feature of critical thought

not sure either side can claim intellectual superiority, that's for sure. And there's plenty of evidence to support this coming from both sides of the political spectrum on these threads.
