The pyramids are cool and all, but the Romans built way cooler shit than the Egyptians did, and without the help of space aliens. If the legacy of a highly advanced space civilization is to leave behind giant stones stacked neatly, then aliens are basically useless.

That's what they want you to think.

Maybe so. I wasn't there to see it form then, I'm just being biased and going with what some historians say.

Of course it exists, but over-sensitivity to racism also exists. If you are pummeled by the belief that people are going to judge you by your race then you will actively look for racism whether it is there or not, as a way to validate your own sensitivity.

Maybe I am naive, but the majority of people out there treat each other with dignity and respect, regardless of race. On an individual basis, we move past race both internally and externally...most of the time.

Of course there is racism out there, 360 degrees of it...all races have the capability for racism and all races can be subject to racism. Whether or not you are a victim of it, however, is your choice.

And before you go nuts at that last statement, I am a Sephardi Jew, if my beard were any longer I would look like a villain from Homeland. I have experienced my share of anti-semitism and racism (even though they think I am a different race). I could have chosen to be offended by it or I could have moved on, I moved on.

Think of why I still post on these boards, an optimistic estimation would produce maaaaybe 5 people who can tolerate me...at best. You think I get that offended when someone treats me like trash? No one can offend you without your permission.

I never heard of the college before but just from the description from the article and what you just said, the type of students I imagine that go there remind me of Patrick Bateman's circle of friends in American Psycho but whose parents didn't have the connections to get them into an Ivy League school.

Edit: Just looked over that article again and realized it mentions Stephen Colbert as an alum.

it blows my mind to this day that he's an alum. maybe i just know a few douche bags. alex is your straight up stereotypical muddin' redneck southerner kinda guy. he can be nice but diversity and "tolerance" are not his bag, baby
