    This line is the best one.

Um. It's obviously a pretty good chance that one of those 440 thousand people will take a shot at him. So stop being so ignorant.
    Yeah that's what I was thinking.
    I'm pretty sure that many people want him dead out of such a big country.
    Doesn't mean they'll do it..but according to history there's a considerable
    chance it may happen. But it's FAR from certain that it'll happen I lol'ed at
    the "what do you think he'll get killed with" thread.

    I just wanted to stop in here and say I'm not surprised he won. When's the last time a Kenyan lost a race?

    I've been thinking about issues like this lately...

    What's a good website (or possibly any other kind of source) to find accurate statistics on race related problems? I haven't been able to find anything.

    Have you been looking? There's like, an entire genre of books on the subject...

    If you remind me when I have a little more time (or feel free to PM me or IM me or something too), I'll look through my old college syllabi and try to put together a list of books I think you should check out.

    This topic just reminds me of how utterly bad my supplementary course was this semester. (Ethnicity and Identity). I had relatively high expectations in it is an interesting subject, and for example one of the US presidential candidates wrote two books on the subject (a little narcissistic but hey, I wouldn't mind talking about myself for money).

    However what we got was some hippie bullshit. "immigrants are like totally a mixed group of people. it's like totally difficult to place so many people in a single category you know? And like these categories are totally fake and made up and like what are the underlying discourses here? hey guys do you hate categories too? Let's analyze the picture of immigrants who look into the camera instead of avoiding the lens with their eyes! hey you know, why do we even use the word immigrant anyways?"

    It makes me glad that I skipped 70% of this bullshit class. The discussions were always stupid (always), the lectures were mediocre at best. Ugh. There is so much in the field of identity you could build on, so much academics there. And yet we focused on bullshit humaniora and stupid pictures from lame ass artists. (La Pocha Nostra.) ooh they're challenging our concept of immigrant by making them wear costumes and have pictures taken of themselves. I once tried to challenge my concept of child sexuality that way and now the FBI reads everything I write. Hi Agent Smith!

    I haven't really looked all that hard yet, I was just trying to get some recommendations beforehand so I don't waste my time with something that's not really credible or poorly put together. Thanks for the offer, I'll keep that in mind.

    One book I did read on the subject of inequalities was Savage Inequalities by Jonathan Kozol. That was an extremely shocking book.

    I'm getting so annoyed by conservatives circulating that Black Panther voter intimidation video. It's seriously makes me want to punch a wall. They don't even have the balls to try to analyze it in any significant way. They just state that Fox was the only station to report on it. It's just not news, plain and simple. When I first saw that video, I figured, hey, it IS a pretty shocking site so whatever. Little did I know it would be circulated as some sort of evidence that white people are under attack.
