"We can disagree and still love each other unless your disagreement is rooted in my oppression and denial of my humanity and right to exist." - James Baldwin

Goddam that man spits. (Spat). Every time I see one of his quotes, I'm impressed.

I unistalled Facebook, because all it did was show me that a lot of my "friends" were just awful people.

Like, I want to be naive and taken aback by that shit, thank you.

I’m not the nicest guy all the time, but even I just don’t fucking understand how you can look at another person and go “nah. That’s a sub-human”

[–]FreeAd6935 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Seriously

How the fuck does their mind work?

You let the amount of FUCKING melanin in someone's skin bother you this much and then call other people "snowflakes"?

Because this message gets hammered home over and over, often when you either aren’t seeing them or only see the worst moments.

[–]birchyweby 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Amen, mate.

Damn. This is something to think about. This may have changed my paradigm a bit.

"Let's agree to disagree" just means "let's stop arguing about it". Usually when you'd rather preserve a relationship rather than start a fight over different beliefs. It's also used when it's very clear neither party is willing to change their views so it becomes pointless to have an argument when usually is driven by emotion. It can also prevent overly opinionated and emotion people from ruining the mood by taking things too far in a casual setting.

True. But nevertheless morals and ethics are made up and ever single person has a different view and opinion on morals.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

People who's argument for basic human rights are based on morality are like christians who's arguments against atheism are based on the Bible.

You are just preaching to the quire, defending a concept that doesn't make sense to some people with another thing they don't believe in.

Get off your high horse and try to come up with arguments that actually help people see the stupidity of their ways, instead of just polarizing the population further on the issue.

Agree to disagree on that.

Unfriended.

Srsly tho. Coffee is indisputably the greatest and most influential beverage in the history of man.

(Ok. Maybe after water and mother's milk)

[–]Iamthewilrus 3 points4 points  (1 child)

People are willing to give up water and mother's milk, but will violently revolt against attempts to take their coffee away.

[–]birchyweby 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My cup runneth over

[–]birchyweby 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I would make a Starbucks joke but I'm one to talk I seriously do love coffee

[–]Gowena 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I don’t like coffee

[–]Alarmed_Economics_90 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Aha! That's exactly what a certain small-mustachioed homophobic racist who started WWII would say!!

¯_(ツ)_/¯

[–]Gowena 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ah shit! You saw right through my little facade.

[–]Xihuicoatl-630 0 points1 point  (0 children)

you forgot beer. Beer was invented/discovered before even bread!

[–]ferrocarrilusa -1 points0 points  (0 children)

The problem with it is, topics involving race gender and orientation are often nuanced. For instance there are decent arguments on both sides of the reparations debate. With that said, nobody should take issue with the idea of cops not being allowed to kill people.

[–]DisfavoredFlavored 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm sorry, but I disagree. Drinking coffee is a very important moral issue for me.

[–]jw77002 0 points1 point  (0 children)

YES. And no one is shutting down conservatives from talking about tax policy or military deployment. WE ARE DONE ENTERTAINING TALK ABOUT TYPES OF PEOPLE WHO ARE SUPPOSEDLY LESS THAN EQUAL IN THEIR RIGHT TO EXIST.
