well focusing “on the human drama & human pathos etc of the story & what actually happened to real human beings” should get us away from thinking about race thumbs up.

i’m not so very sure what media it gets represented within makes all that very much difference.  me thinks to make your point about media you will need to put much more meet on them bones.

In my AM ponders there ran a thread which noticed that If one excludes pictures & other media besides text then race can’t enter the discussion unless the author puts it there by mentioning “black” policeman or “white” victim or tipping off the reader to race.  Hence text alone has to seem intentionally racist if it is racist by mentioning.  What would happen if one focused, because of the lack of multimedia, on the human drama & human pathos etc of the story & what actually happened to real human beings?
Well, missing the point, TEXT has no race in it unless the author puts it there!  Also to care that it is missing or desiring it to be there is also racist. 
THIS WAS THE DNC’S RACISM I WAS POINTING OUT! 
You are implying SHIT!

Seth says
yep … but that is the case with any media … a thing is not represented in it, unless the author represents it there.   yes i did miss that point, because i think it points to the null set.

Seth says
you seem very keen on becoming aware of racism, especially other people’s racism.   me, not so very!  ← just saying, because you may not have noticed that difference between us. 

Seth says
well race is an identity … it is even kind of like an ego … or even nationalism … or corporate identity … etc.

What’s your agenda here … to stamp out all identifies? … why not start with your own first?

Mark de LA says
Maybe you have your head so far up your own ass that you think everything is black.  I have been agitating for years that the solution of the race problem is to upgrade to HUMAN!  It is liberals who want to segregate into groups to divide, pander & conquer. Fuck’em.

Seth says
so no more nationalism ?

Seth says
and while we’re at it, let’s get  rid of egotism too.   i mean maybe we don’t need any of these , relatively arbitrary boundaries.   or do we?

Seth says
anyway, these boundaries are here now … and can not just be wished away.  so how do we change from this now?  me, i don’t think that ragging on the others boundaries is going to do anything except make a fight and make the walls even highter.

Mark de LA says
You just use the word egotism as an insult, part of your already-always jousting.
Strangely in my morning contemplation I got to the point “I do not exist” – both eek! & aha & oh shit! all in one. Then I went to sleep.  I could get back but I will keep most of that the myself laughing

Seth says
yes

strangely enough i did not use the word “egotism” as a insult.   rather just to refer to one particular wall that separates part our humanity from other parts of it.

so Mark,  looks like you are insisting on staying in 2.0 to have dialogue.  ok then, i will switch to it as well.
You need to master English.  I have said it is NOT binary.  There are problems between them which even you acknowledge.

There is no SO !  Yesterday I got hex #6 which is fighting & contention & war. The net of it is “There is only one way to deal with evil & that is NOT co-existence.”  Those who are on the side of true, beautiful & good & NOT Evil will naturally coalesce .  Others balkanize into their own tribes & nations. Evolution is not over yet.cool

might  have been something in the air all over wink.  last night i woke up acutely feeling all the things in me and  in the world which were not working together.   when that happens to me, i tend to realize that it is just a context that i am personally feeling rather than something obtaining in the world at large.   hexes and primes, i am almost completely sure,  always tell of one’s inner spiritual world, and not the world outside.  best not to get them confused.

 Mark. There is no such thing as evil. A person can have thoughts which produce outcomes they do not want and that causes negative feedback through emotions. For a long time people have called that effect evil. They have personified it as evil. But other than that there is no such thing as evil.

Head up the ass notwithstanding, the word intentionally (racist) was missed. Bozo is the one ragging on other nation’s boundaries.
Not so.  If I don’t exist there is nothing to create.  Your already-always BS is just you finding more of you to defend & pretend that you exist! laughing

Seth says
that last one is response confusion … me, i am not touching it.

Mark de LA says
Yep it landed on the wrong comment. Welcome to the new commentary.

Why should not all races be treated equally by all of government if :
