I want to talk about some common stereotypes. I see people as individuals except for Utopians who by definition are mental midgets. Most of us are grouded in reality and stereotypes are for people who lack the skills to see people as individuals.
Lets look at the common gay stereotypes. Gays railing against religion and loathing team sports while spending all their time in art museums listening to Broadyway musicals. Rob and Justin are Christians with another view point of Christs message. Both follow team sports and enjoy watching them just like the rest of us. The last two are perplexing because I do enjoy Broadway and Art museums. This often comes as a shock to far left types who think that they own culture.
Christians are portrayed as ignorant and homophobic. Many of the objections of Christians to homosexuality are based in their interpretation of scripture. Do note that none of the conservatives supported the gay bashing assault in NYC. A surprising number of the posters here including myself favor civil unions. Most recognize the insanity of theological law would make us as insane as the people we fight in Iraq. The concept of Civil law and individual rights protects us. I am not a fan of tolerance as it implies inferiority. Respect is due each and every person until they prove otherwise.
The notion that Christians are uneducated is wishful thinking. The posters of this blog are well read in a myriad of subjects. I could go down the list but it would be endless. Even the Ducks views on films drew some amazing critique from Felis.
The notion that blacks are savages and prone to anti social behavior is also a myth.
This description does describe Uptown who is more Red then black. This description does not fit the black coworkers and friends of all walks of life. They have the same concerns as most of us jobs, family and making ends meet. Yet unlike Uptown I do not disparage low wage earners of any race. My friend Jerome works two full time jobs and his wife works nearly sixty hours. No thinking person disparages those who try and do their best each and every day. There are black entrepenuers and professionals but few sit around blaming Jews and righties. These people like professionals of all stripes take advantage of opportunities.
People are individuals but it is the far left that turns them into cartoons. Native Americans according to John Brown should all think x. Blacks according to Brown and Uptown should all think Y. Here is a creative concept for the far left think for yourselves.
People are not stereotypes but we do have stooges that visit this site. Ducky plays the Moe Role as the cerebral apologist for genocidal Marxism. Brown does not have the apptitude for stupidity and plays the curly role. Then there is Uptown who is todays curly stupid and lazy. Some of Uptowns mistakes are comedy but it is from geting his ideas in snippets on the web rather then reading books.
Let us all remember that people are individuals.
