Re: The Official "I'm finally embarrassed to be a KISS fan" thread.

I get more of an Al Pacino vibe ... or a cross between the two.

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

A couple thoughts. 'Seeing Color' doesn't have to mean judging people. It can and should mean recognizing and understanding differences in general, and being cool with that. I think if you treat...

Re: The VUDU Thread - News, Bargains & Codes

Thanks for the heads-up! Instant blind-buy. I've been waiting for this to hit the right price for quite a while now.

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

Well crap, being a somewhat disinterested Bond watcher, I was unaware of his Scottish ancestry. As a child of the '70s and '80s, Roger Moore was my idea of Bond, but I don't buy him as a Scotsman...

Re: What's your unpopular opinion?

A good deep-dish pizza with crispy cheese on the edges, in a bustier and garters is the best.

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

I guess I don't see what attitude or character changes would be needed to cast a black actor in the role. He's a lonely spy who worked his way up the ranks. If anything a black Bond would probably be...

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

If one can suspend disbelief enough to accept Bond fighting a 7-foot-tall man with metal teeth, while in orbit, then one can suspend disbelief enough to accept a black actor playing James Bond. Earth...

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

I accept all of the blame for detouring back into James Bond and the idea of casting a non-white actor. It IS a race issue, after all! Chow Yun Fat would be a good choice too, albeit getting a bit...

Re: Biggest Loser 2021 Health & Fitness Thread: Revenge On The Pandemic!

Curiously, I got started on this during the pandemic. I ordered two pairs of pants online from Kohls, which didn't fit. Rather than going to the effort of returning them, I vowed that from May to...

Re: The Official Former President Trump Thread

"Black Lives Matter" is 100% correct. It's the best distillation of an idea that's not even binary. There is no other response to "Black Lives Matter" other than 'yes.' Any further qualification of...

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

I do find the notion that "Nick Fury was originally white, but now he's black, so he can't go back to being white" is an odd defense of the idea that "James Bond was originally white, so he can never...

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

Erik, your attitude is 99% defeatist and it makes me sad. Why do you continue to post in this thread?

No I haven't read the entirety of your every post, but my reading of your gist is this: to...

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

I'd like to table the hyperbole because I've certainly never called you a 'horrible racist monster" and hyperbole never helps an argument.

You personally ABSOLUTELY have the power (everyone does)...

Re: 'Anyone could be...'

I take it to mean that Superman is such a sucky, ridiculous character that anyone could be him, even an unconscious, puking transient in the gutter.

JK, the critic probably meant "all can aspire...

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

Your well-reasoned, thoughtful, and correct analyses are appreciated but I think too broad and deep for the general discussion. When Americans think of slavery etc. they think of our country's...

Re: The Official Former President Trump Thread

My dad would order his steak 'seared raw'. I try to show some mild decorum, and generally just go 'rare'. FWIW I order steak in a restaurant less than once a year. What were we talking about?

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

I'm surprised at your thoughts on this. "White good/black bad - we should all give up" seems really far off the mark as far as the idea of 'white privilege' is concerned, especially since you are...

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

OK then, since you acknowledged it, we can presume that doesn't mean you are demonizing white people based on their skin color, or demanding all whites feel bad, or that things they have earned need...

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

Erik, you ask what you, a powerless person can do to combat White [fill in your preferred term], which does exist. For starters, agree that it exists, that's a good first step.
