What's that got to do with anything, Mothra? Your Boong invented a stick. No one's krapping on about that.

They made good slaves.

I don't know if that's because they're tinted or because they couldn't read their contracts.

They made terrible slaves. Your Boong would only work when he felt like it, and he was always disappearing to go "on walkabout". Frightful state of affairs.

Now your Chinese coolie- he could work. A bit of opium and he'd do whatever you like. Build you a road, carry you into town to do your shopping, and poison your wells to keep the Boongs away.

The only way you can get a Gollywog or a Tree-Monkey to do anything is to chain him up at night and keep the lash close to his back.

Both of you seem to be conflating race with culture.

That what racist people did.

In any event, culturalist is just a pseudo-intellectual twist on racism built largely on semantics.

So, do you know the difference between culture and race? Because you've seem to completely misunderstood what I've said.

Again, race is unchangeable; culture is not unchangeable.

Are you implying that people culture is fixed and static? That a white man will always have white culture (whatever that means) and likewise a Japanese person?? Because it seems as though you are implying that there is no separation between race and culture.

Once again, Mothra, you shift uncomfortably from your reflection.

The IQ stuff that was going on Don was about race and intellect.

Surely, you know the difference between race and culture, don't you? Have you ever seen or witnessed a black person speak and think like a Chinese person? I have. This person is Chinese. Are you saying that they're not because they're not Chinese???

That brings to mind a great example. Wanted an air con bloke to replace a unit on the way out. Bloke turns up for a quote......black as the ace of spades! I am thinking that this is not going to end well.

Yet, instead of some strange accent which I likely would not understand.....out came perfect English.

Something about a 'melting pot.'

Same with TIB in India. She is Indian, yet has an Aussie accent.....no Indian lilt whatsoever. That is how we caught those Indian shysters out every time.

I got caught like that once, learnt a valuable lesson. Mum wanted to know what stop to get off on a bus in Rome. She wanted to ask the chinese guy sitting behind her. I tasked her why in a bus full of Romans sjhe would pick the only chinese guy? he spoke better italian than I. Not a trace of an accent. That taught me to shut my mouth.

No shifting uncomfortably for me, Auggie. I don't think about other living beings or groups of other living beings in terms of superiority and inferiority. Nor am i attempting to justify doing so by giving the same thing a different name.

You know what kind of people do that?

And once again, you have failed to understand anything that I've said. You seem to be conflating race with culture. I don't know why. One is socially constructed, the other isn't.

Why do you passionately speak against about the social structure of the patriarchy and the culture 'toxic masculinity' as being evil, yet refuse to recognise that a culture like one in Saudi Arabia (where women are treated like second class citizens) is no less worse than Australian culture??

But, I actually think what you're actually doing here is playing the man. You seem to think there's some esoteric meaning behind my words, as though it's all code for 'racism'. Fair enough, seems you're already convinced, no matter how many times I tell you otherwise.

BTW, you did emphatically state you thought you were superior to Donald Trump. So, you seem happy to believe that you're superior to other people, but when someone points out that the beliefs and values of a group of individuals who share those values are better, you seem to straight away think this is evil or racist?

Is this because you actually support the Saudi regime??

I don't place living beings in hierarchies. I don't judge by the best or worst. I discourage the worst and encourage the best.

But you just keep on telling them how much better you are than them. That always works.
