I think that's the Jesus from that movie Dogma. lol
Lacedaemonian said:It looks like the Jesus from Dogma. Buddahjeb your point about history books is valid to a point. History books are one persons version of the truth. Some Hollywood movies make no attempt to give audiences the truth. The most extreme example of this is U571, where the heroes of the tale are given the full American makeover. This is perhaps the most extreme example, most of the historical movies only suffer the odd change of fact.
For them to fail, the American public will have to stop watching them. This being my fundamental argument for accusing the American public for the creation of these movies. A harsh assessment, I know.
At the end of the day, you played the race card by questioning my reasoning for believing people elsewhere were intrinsically not like me.
aurelio said:And an ignorant one as well, Lace. American movies generally make more money overseas now than they do domestically, blowing your American-bashing all to hell.
Those darned facts seem to keep getting in your way, bud!
-------- Say wha...???
LOL - That's one of the funniest pieces of inverted logic I've ever seen. Wow! What's next? Saying "Don't kill" means one advocates murder?
Maybe if I say, "You make the most sense of anyone here," you'll get my meaning.
What I was suggesting to you was not that you were being racist, but using the same logic and replacing race with culture. It was a metaphor.And now that all the "races" are mixed up virtually everywhere, people like you, Lace, are trying to re-separate people with "culture" or "religion" or you name it. That is complete hogwash too.
The question you should ask yourself is why you feel more comfortable thinking that people elsewhere are intrinsically not like you?
Your response to that point was:Is encouraging others not to use race to divide people "using the race card"???
I have to say Lace, this statement is not only another innacurate interpretation of what I said but, well... pretty darned weird. That you didn't see the irony present in what you said was frankly humorous. But also maddening, because you still insisted on accusing me of racism. Which is inaccurate. And not nice. And not fair. And not what nice people do.At the end of the day, you played the race card by questioning my reasoning for believing people elsewhere were intrinsically not like me.
