  •  yawn again, i think you should write letters (4+ / 0-)

    to the american sociological association, american political science association, american anthropological association, etc. and share with them your deep thoughts on large-n studies, methodology, and social science. it would be a good use of your time.

    you could sponsor a symposium too!

    again, you are playing a white victimology con game that is part of the liberal racist casebook 101.

    "Sorry if that cramps you style.  '

    Inserts laughter. Trust me, nothing you do means a thing to me at all. Just being honest. You are however a drain on my time and are not an honest participant if you won't even own up to your own liberal racism and white privilege laced opines about hurt feelings from the mean black guy who dares to talk about concepts that you don't like.

    stop playing and move along. no more feeding the trolls from me. perhaps others can throw you some yummies.

    •  Of course not (0+ / 0-)

      I don't expect you to listen.  Those who are wedded to their own prejudices and committed to their ideological agenda rarely do listen to reason.  

      I am reminded of the I/P wars where ideologues all insist that it's the OTHER side that commits atrocities, while bystanders can only look on and observe that both sides are guilty of a range of violence and injustice and that working for peace requires getting past the tired mental frameworks of the past.

      I'll say it again:  you cannot solve a problem with the same kind of thinking that produced it.

      Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion. An activist seeks to change opinion.

      The deflecting accusation of racism

      again, you are playing a white victimology con game that is part of the liberal racist casebook 101.
      Let me get this straight: anyone who disagrees with you is a racist?  It is racist now to say that negatively stereotyping entire groups of people based on the color of their skin?  I imagine you don't even begin to understand how deeply perverse that is.  

      I never claimed to be a victim of anything.  I just said that smearing entire races of people is wrong.  I guess you disagree with that proposition.  

      It is really sad to see that is a controversial position on a "progressive" blog
