    Ah, a bit of clarification then. I guess you could say your post could be read many ways.

    Then please also clarify what you mean by racialism. Again, is that just what racism is supposed to mean, before that term was twisted by those who need it to hide their own weaknesses?

    So judging someone based on race. Yes, that's what racism is. Before leftists started saying nonsense that black people couldn't be racist against white people, due to power, or some other self-serving nonsense disguised as equality.

    I'm not sure how that last part is relevant, or specifically associated with leftists? That seems to be just using someone's racism as an excuse to be racist against them. Which one can argue lies at the heart of certain right-wing arguments against welfare and affirmative action. That doesn't seem to be unique to one end of the political horseshoe or the other.

    I mean, you can see that sort of thing at work on both sides of the Tweet's story. Hence why I mentioned it. It's both sides framing their arguments from the perspective of race, with the Asian parent adding in the implication that blacks are dramatically inferior to other races through the comment about them never catching up even by lowering standards. That suggests that even with lower standards, blacks are so inferior they still wouldn't be equally represented.

    Wait, I thought we already had this convo like a month ago. Are people still seriously tricked by that type of reverse psychology?

    Also, there's a big difference in saying "you'll never catch up even if you lower standards" vs. "if you need to lower standards, then you'll never truly catch up".

    Pretty sure we did.

    Also, both of those statements suggest that whoever they're being directed at won't catch up regardless, because it still implies the inferiority of the target and their inability to overcome that inferiority.

    No, the former is saying that the target is inferior, while the latter is calling out the target for essentially admitting that they are.

    Lol, that nuance is minor, since it implies the speaker agrees with them in the latter case. It still amounts to calling them inferior either way.

    Not quite. The latter is more laughing at someone for shooting themselves in the foot. The laugher's hands were nowhere near said trigger.

    Also some racialism in there.
    I hate it when people equate "genetical engineering to eliminate imperfections" with racism. Apparently, the only difference is adding "new" to the word.

    I wish the meteor would hurry.

    Well, to be fair, "extra ordinary" doesn't necessarily mean good. The same people who freak out over Trump (and Obama before him) putting people in cages also praise China for putting people in boxes and North Korea for straight up offing them.

    It missed this time. Seems we'll have to wait for Apophis. In the meantime, you'll just have to get used to the idea of selective breeding, forced sterilization, and active extermination of undesirables associated with eugenics to be seen in the context of racism, both "scientific" and otherwise. You can thank the fact that the two have been intertwined historically for its continued association.

    Sadly, we don't have access to an open source genetic manipulation machinery or we could get rid of the bad parts.
