I'm just wondering where all the Black users are since there don't seem to be any Black users outraged by what ApostateAbe is saying in the "Racism is innate" thread.

Black users, are you offended? Are you past being offended? Or do you just think the debate is a waste of time?

It would be nice if we could hear separately from US Blacks and continental Africans, too.

So basically, you're not Black:bashful:.

I'm not upset, just curious.

There were other threads too, including an anti-Black Lives Matter thread, which suggest that either there are few Blacks on this forum, or that they are not outraged.

I know I would be outraged by an anti-ethnic-Chinese thread (although not by an anti-mainland-Chinese-government thread).

The send away test told me I am 10%, Black. It was the (23 and me) test.

The only full black person I was aware of on the forum was pizzabeak. he was banned.

Well I'm not black, but I was angry enough back when I posted on that thread that I quit the forum for a month or so and I still haven't gone back to that thread. As far as I am concerned he isn't fit enough to occupy the bottom of a shoe, let alone a forum.

However, I decided to leave this to the purview of the others and the community. It's not my forum after all, it's the user's. He's a wordy little fuck, which some people are happy enough to engage with. He has 'reasons' or something and engages in discourse so I guess that means he has value? idk. This place, can ultimately never be anything other than what you all who participate want it to be.

You should go metaphorically kick his ass.

:shock:Why did he get banned?

It does seem strange that so few Blacks are on this forum though. Statistically, Singaporeans are probably rarer than Blacks worldwide. Yet I'm not the only Singaporean on this forum.

I'm not angry enough to quit the forum but when I'm tired of it I'll probably disengage from that thread.

There is something in me that just believes there is good in humans and that racists can change. What am I to do? I am an INFP.

Idk dude you could say the same for asian I suppose. Forums came with the emergence of the internet which became a western culture, There's definitely more people in the west here (UK, EU, America, Australia) than there is from Russia, China, India, Asia minor and so on.

Westerners have a different type of "loner" personality. Some research suggest Chinese children have more interpersonal and academic problems compared to western recluses, We're more individualistic as an ideology so people can operate relatively independent from families. And in last in my experience, and in some ways envy, The east in their traditionalism place a high value on family. They have a large extended family that you never really escape from, where as there's a large enough pattern of broken families here in the west.


Since countries like Korea are becaming a heavily gaming-centric youth culture we see a lot of internet activity from them, but they'll likely be drawn to asian counterparts of websites. Basically the western world is predominantly caucasian, and since internet culture really emerged from the west through weird internet forums there's a higher percentage of western loners here than there is eastern. I'm sure there were many other races on this forum from one time to another.

Oh yes, of course: Western countries developed faster than eastern counterparts, they got access to the internet before social media and forums were avid on the web. A lot of people from emerging developing economies have started their online social life through social media, not through anonymous forums.

He is so race-centric, it's quite unbelievable really. I've only been aware of his existence solely on that thread, or any other matters than refer to race and IQ. Both stem from the obsession to categories inherent inferiority/superiority. To that it's obvious that he's obsessed with being able to understand what is statistically better.

You can't eliminate people's ability to categorize ideas, it just so happens he's went to the ends of the earth to categorize people by race. I wouldn't worry about it, I mean you know yourself you're probably far more interests in discussing other topics. Prejudice comes in many forms, you'd never be able to eradicate all of it during your lifetime.

But I think there are a fair number of Asians.

I expected more Blacks since I think most forumers are Usonian.

Proportionally, Population numbers are pretty low in the US:
