I thought the swastika was an indian (as in native american) symbol for good luck? Although IIRC, the indian symbol was reversed (looked like it was turning the other way...don't remember offhand which direction the nazi swastika goes...right?)

There is a beautiful, huge, black antique budha at the Anatole hotel in Dallas which has a little reverse swastika on it's chest. It's really an impressive site to be just hanging out in the lobby.

Indian (India) swastika's (i forgot the indian word for them) point to the right just like Nazi ones do. However, the Nazi one is rotated 45 degrees

GOOD LUCK EMBLEM
"The Swastika" is the oldest cross and emblem in the world. It forms a combination of four "L's" standing for Luck, Light, Love and Life. It has been found in ancient Rome, excavations in Grecian cities, on Buddhist idols, on Chinese coins dated 315 B.C., and our own Southwest Indians use it as an amulet.

The only official reference to the meaning of the National Socialist Swastika which we have encountered is in Chapter 7 of the 2nd volume of Mein Kampf: "As National Socialists we see our program in our flag. In the red, we see the social idea of the movement, in the white, the nationalistic idea, in the Swastika, the mission of the struggle for the victory of Aryan man, and at the same time, also the victory of the idea of creative work, which in itself is, and will always be, anti-Semitic." This, of course, is probably only one aspect of a deeper meaning which was given to the Swastika, but we have never encountered reference to any such deeper meaning given by the Thule Society or the NSDAP. However, an investigation of some of the historical and esoteric uses of The Swastika certainly gives us some insight into its significance.

But does he date white budhas?

You can't see the swastika on his chest from here, but this is the statue I mentioned in my post above.

The Anatole has an incredible collection of real oriental relics, as well as other impressive artworks. Even if you don't stay there, if you ever come to Dallas just walking their lobby can be a great experience. Highly suggested. :up:

Hmmm, one long held belief shot down in flames. :lol:

Now I gotta go back and check on the Anatole Buddha... it probably isn't a 'reverse' swastika then.

And jolt, I'm not sure what the dating habits of buddhas are, black or white. ;)

can we please get back to the dumped with her small boobs and the rasist dumpee and stop hijacking this fascinating thread?

Shoveler 08-05-03 01:37 PM

Seems to me this speaks more to the quality of the man in question, and the overall state of their "relationship" (that he would drop it for greener pastures) and has very little to do with race. If your friend Deena was talking to you about how she was thinking of dating a white man, would your advice be based on his whiteness, or on your judgment of their compatibility and his quality of character?

Also, remember that there are black bimbos, too ("blambos"?), and black women get fake boobs from time to time.

Finally, I don't see what him being liberal has to do with anything, except that, if he is socially liberal, it would tend to explain his actions. Not justify, just explain. You said

Sexual choice is not just some vague notion of “personal taste;” it’s aesthetic, psychological, economic, and political.
and I agree, but you oversimplified it. I'll avoid the obvious political example, but let's take Jim Bakker and Jessica Hahn. Do you think he considered her psychological, economic, and political qualifications, or mainly/merely the aesthetic? All of the factors you mentioned are important considerations for a strong, enduring relationship. Sexual choice can, and often is, based on first impressions, physical attraction, and opportunity. I'm sorry for your friend, but if your account is accurate, she's better off without him, and in the long run she'll know it.

"White trophy"? I know you're angry, but would you let a conservative white guy refer to a black woman as some white man's "black trophy"? It seems racial, sexist, and reflects poorly on the source, IMO.

Venusian 08-05-03 02:01 PM

well Variaable seems to be back, but no report of last night.

Variable697 08-05-03 02:10 PM

yeah, I got the full the details from my friend, but it's a long story. I'm feeling lazy right now.

Venusian 08-05-03 02:12 PM

Venusian 08-05-03 02:17 PM

hmm...confusing, maybe our resident otter farm psychologists can break that down for us. but i have a feeling it will relate to something sexual. maybe you do have a thing for this girl after all

Geofferson 08-05-03 02:19 PM

I was talking w/ my GF the other day about the interracial thing.

She said that she is not attracted to black guys, but can recognize when they are good-looking. An acquaintance of hers only dates black guys for whatever reason and she said that she just likes the culture. I think that white women that feel that way feel the need to be rebellious in some way since it was once a taboo thing to do.

I notice that many of the white women with black men are, for lack of a better word, fat. My GF, in turn, said that black men, as a generalization, prefer thicker women.

I'm not sure why they don't find black women attractive though. A black female friend of mine was once dating this skinny, nerdy guy and I asked her what gives? She said I had no idea how hard it is for her to find a quality, attractive guy.

Weird.

Giantrobo 08-05-03 05:30 PM

Having been with white girls I've noticed that white men have KNACK for making white girls feel physically UN-attractive. White guys forever bitch and moan if they gain a pound or two, if their butts get slightly bigger, and so on.

A black guy comes along and appreciates here for how she looks and doesn't want to change a thing and suddenly she(the white chick) feels special again. Isn't that part of what women want from relationships?

There was that white girl on REAL WORLD Hawaii who said the same thing.

I noticed a lot of white guys like black girls. I wonder if it has something to do with slavery when all those slave owners were raping their slaves. In my American History class our professor told us when white men where fighting durinf the Civil War some of the white women would have affairs with their black male slaves and many got pregnant but they killed the babies. A few were raised by the slaves though.
