As I said I am done posting here.
Bro, this isn't the case where you go "whatever. I'm done" and walk off without listening to what the other person says, that you don't want to hear.
First of all, what you actually said was that you were done because you already "got into it" with Nelomaxwell and it was "futile". You haven't discussed this with me yet, at least give me the benefit of a doubt in terms of what I can understand or not instead of dismissing me as a lost cause without even trying. If you have points or merits, I will understand them and acknowledge them. Trust me.
Second of all, what you're saying is the type of thing that can get you laughed at, dismissed in real life. I'm trying to help you before you say this to someone who respects you intellectually and is actually in your life - as opposed to us random internet people.
The fact of the matter is: All squares are shapes. Not all shapes are squares. Triangles and rhombuses are shapes too. What does that mean?
We all fall into categories and groups. We are all human, for example. And within those groups, are more groups. Some humans are Americans. Some humans are Africans. Some are Asian. Some of these groups are basically shared through appearance, in most cases. Women are all human. Women are also their own group, they're all women because of their bodies, appearance, experiences, etc. that make them all look like women. We can't simply say, "women don't exist as a group. People are only what they are on the inside" because that ignores the real differences there are between women and men, and the experiences like sexism that they experience as a group.
This same thing applies to race.
Nelomaxwell addressing the black community is not ignoring all the individual differences they all have individually, yes everyone is unique and everyone has their own character. No, Nelo addressing the black community is acknowledging all the shared history, struggles, as well as appearance, that unites them despite their individuality. That is not "judging" in any sense of the word, that is objective reality.
But what I don't like is when a group of black people or white people come together just simply because of their skin colour.And just look at things from that point of view.That is the kind of thing I was getting at.
Yes, that's what you said already. You said that they shouldn't because we should "judge by character".
My reply was that--there are things that black people or any race go through because of their shared skin colour. So why exactly would they not get together to address that, as having shared in those problems or issues?
You have yet to answer this.
You get together and post on a website with people on comicvine simply because you guys share the hobby of reading comics, and have similar things that you guys know about or go through as comic fans. And then, you look at it from your point of view as a comic fan. How is this any different?
Maybe because problems people who are black or whatever skin colour are problems everyone goes through.And that depending on the problem why not go somewhere where all people suffer it? I mean the OP mentioned black on black violence,well why not make a thread discussing the issues of violence in general? I mean there is probably as much "black on black violence" as there is "white on white violence" Instead of just looking at specific cases why not violence in general.
Just because people are black does not mean they share anything else in common,so we should look at the issues and things we have in common other than appearance.
People on this website aren't all the same,okay so people who join this site might like to read comics but comics and other geeky things are very broad.It is a lot more broader than just looking at people by their skin colour that is why it is different.
