Idiotic how? Because you say so?

Actually? Yeah.

None of this anti-covid advice stands up against hard evidence of what China went through in the beginning. They were always the first country affected, and they had no qualms against building field hospitals and redirecting other people to stay out of Wuhan while the situation was developing.

Any politician who ignored such blatant warning is not fit to lead a nation. And despite Canada having other clown world tier nonsense I'm against, I can breathe easy that none of the actual leaders are Low IQ enough to expose us all to a virus again.

And I think that's now my last post with you.

I can't help you on this. These conspiracies go as far as to deny gravity exists, because viruses have always been a threat to humanity, and pretending that they don't, always ends in preventable deaths.

My only real wish or concern is that Politicians never listen to a word you're saying because it always seeks to endanger real lives. Trying to run a Hospital or Long Term Care Home that refuses to social distance or wear protective equipment is borderline running a murder factory. In fact, I do have experience with the latter and an Ontarian Nursing Home who was ran by an anti-masker is now being sued to the death by the employees who he deliberately lied to. The bastard caused too many nurses to die, and got several elderly residents murdered in a move that was based solely on hatred and misanthropy.

It's idiotic to organize against something that has been considered a public health emergency for more than a year now.

Just as I explained to the other user, China was proof that ignoring a new viral outbreak was always out of the question. Every country had a chance to lockdown and save themselves, but the ones who fought against this only made the mess bigger.

It's like running up to a bucket of dirt, and proceeding to kick it and spread that shit everywhere. That is literally the dumbest thing to do around a new disease and yet there was seriously half the people in the world who believed that.

There was wealth transfers before. The 2008 market crash was more impactful.

But this shows how short sighted some of you conspiracy theorists really are. No one has ever said wealth inequality didn't exist or wasn't a problem. It's trying to pin it on a pandemic, when there where so many factors that was outside of everyone's control. And you're not going to fix it by just "opening up". The damage is already done, you gotta think of another strategy that wont get millions of people sick or hospitalized.

If anything, what precipitated this entire crisis was the refusal to follow science and enact a more safe public gathering routine. Last year, the majority of the population were afraid to leave their homes. This shifted the demand towards "contactless" services like food delivery or online ordering. Many small businesses had a chance to adapt to this market shift. Many others didn't and thus, they were always doomed.

On a nation wide level, it's never going to take off. And that's what matters more in terms of visible results, and not what happens in the middle of fuck nowhere.

But this discussion is getting tiring. I can't even remember what the original premise was anymore? Whatever it was, it's not worth doing another victory lap around you. So long.

I'm considered profitable so it's far from weak minded or illogical.

Anti-maskers are just a loud minority who are desperate to win the approval of people and businesses alike.

No amount of time will ever change the fact that every business needs money to survive. That's true of life, and putting an Enterprise in the hands of a random internet stranger is the fastest way to file bankruptcy.

Keep trying to get businesses to desperately give you the thumbs up. So far, it's failing.

Businesses clearly cater to my ilk and want me to shop inside their stores.

They don't care about anti-maskers and are better off telling them to stay outside.

You can keep telling yourself that, but you're desperate to get businesses to come support you when they have zero reason to care.

Their current strategy works, and has been working well for months. They're not going to renege on it over your silly demands.

Businesses everywhere are literally fine without you. They have no reason to change when you're such a small and unimportant demographic to them.

And the fact that you're desperate to gain their approval is proof of that. You need them to survive and not the other way around.

Businesses have no incentive to listen to people like you, when you would sooner run them into the ground than keep them afloat.

It's not truth, it's not even even helpful information. There's no reward in risking an enterprise over fringe nonsense that most customers have come to reject and want nothing to do with in their shopping careers.

This anti-mask stuff is going to take over your life, because businesses are not going to give an inch to the tiny few that hate them.

You can either make peace with it now, or live with regret anytime businesses pull up the "wear a mask" requirement in the future.

Negative. Only a small [but annoyingly loud] portion of the population actually oppose the mask restrictions. Businesses are in their right to care about their profits and well being first, than appease a tiny group of people that wants them to fail.

Good luck I guess?

There are much more productive activities you could be putting your energy into. Like cleaning up the environment or volunteering at the local animal shelter. But spending your entire life fighting masks is just a waste IMO.

So leave these businesses [and their customers] alone then.

Like I said, you can protest outside the store. The rest of society will learn to move on without anti-maskers.

Wearing masks that don't stop virus particles is not good sense.

Businesses got bills to pay, mouths to feed, employees to cover. Most times, it's not even the Businesses who are the first to respond to anti-maskers, but other customers who don't want to shop next to them. It makes little sense to appease the small demographic that only brings harm to their business so we've definitely hit common sense territory now.

Trudeau and Biden repeat the panic lines like robots. Their script is wearing thin. More people are gaining a brain and realizing they're full of shit, fortunately.

Is this the new "Just wait two more weeks and President Trump will be back in office"?

I'm sorry, but even if Trudeau and Biden are robots, nobody wants to see another idiot in chief like Trump in power again. You're just going to have to deal with it because there's no way we're going backwards from all of this.

We avoided the sky falling when we ditched the opinions of anti-maskers.

I'm still waiting to hear who exactly is listening to all your advice? The sources are Low IQ, and the last major head of state to align himself with these beliefs got voted out.

It's over, deal with it.

It falls under common sense, the same way we're going to have "no shoes, no shirt, no service".

You give the government too much credit. Businesses care about their image and profit first, and anti-maskers have always attracted negative publicity. They would sooner distance themselves than be compared next to them.

Who is even listening to your advice? It's literally the dregs of society who have been pushing this anti-covid crap for 12+ months and the results have still been less than pitiful.

I honestly wouldn't care about this stuff at all if it weren't for the fact many of these anti-maskers go on television and cry their eyes out about how "oppressed" they are, when everyone else in life considers them losers.

This is the one time where a conspiracy like Covid denial falls under Low IQ since day one. No one pushing this belief can ever be considered a genius, the same way we still got flat earthers who say their field is respectable.

Actually, scratch that. Flat Earthers at least make some really spicy memes. Nothing about the anti-Covid shit has ever been funny or worth reading into.

They're private businesses. If they don't want you in there for any reason, including being an anti-masker, you have to obey that rule.

The government doesn't matter because they can't be everywhere at once. And police reactions can be slow as well. But if they see you coming into their store when you should never actually be there in the first place, then leave.

All "official data" out of China is a complete joke.

Second hand data exists. In fact, if China is lying, it actually means the situation was worse than what they were reporting. Which I don't deny.

But the fact remains, they still didn't sit by and do nothing at all. It was serious enough to warrant a government response.

I have. I'll repeat myself: I've seen more of it than you can fathom.

Had I never mentioned the Hospitals, you would have said nobody ever gotten sick at all. I'm not stupid.

And? I supported shutting borders down in the midst of a potentially serious threat. I also have no problem basing my reality on reality rather than mass globalist hysteria, once more data comes in showing it's not a high threat. There are better reasons to shut the border down. Unfortunately, DNC and GOP globalists do everything in their power to keep the US border open with red carpet passage for illegal invasions and it's destroying nations all over.

So you support closing borders for illegal immigrants, but you want them open at ALL TIMES for a virus?

You're an idiot.

The other 1% are those who can't go indoor shopping without getting kicked out for being a liability to businesses.

The government does not order stores to kick people out for trespassing. They have any reason to remove someone they don't want in their business and that includes anti-maskers.

What the hell is unreliable about the data?

You can watch the videos and count the makeshift hospitals for yourselves. The fact is, the Chinese government was aware of an outbreak was already on their soil and they took actions to stop it. You don't need much more data other than the fact it was enough to cause an entire province to shut down.

That was the only lesson the entire world only needed to see before it hit their own borders. If China was shutting down cities, you would do the same in your own nation. Don't wait like dumbass Trump did. They should have responded the first day it was detected.

I rather follow the roadmap that says society can reopen, once we reach certain hospitalization numbers. This is based on an actual plan or blueprint meant to return life to normal, whereas all other alternatives make zero mention of protecting lives or correcting the economy.

China's data is not unreliable because foreigners came back with the exact same evidence that Wuhan had been put under lockdown and makeshift hospitals had appeared around the country. You are literally decrying none of this happened when it's all on tape.

I'm saying that idiocy theater should not be happening. Most of it was brought on by state-imposed and local county-level imposed decrees. It's not a laughing matter.

And these businesses still take it upon themselves to force masking up. They can for example, report you for trespassing because they don't want you in there.

You said you hated tyranny so these businesses are in the right to refuse service. 😃

Foreign reporters were already inside the country when it happened and they reported the exact same thing.

There was already data. Images from late 2019 showed China was having trouble containing this new disease. The Chinese government was desperate to roll out field hospitals and tell Wuhan residents to avoid leaving the province to stop the spread.

Japan hosting the Olympics last year would have been a move of dumbass proportions, since they would have let in thousands of foreign athletes and spectators from around the world, most of whom would have walked straight past the airport gates and infect the native Japanese population without a single care in the world.

All of the ones who understand it are being censored and persecuted by a globalist-industrial network of power. Especially physicians in Canada speaking out and warning people about this industry.

None of these "censored" people have never saved lives with the rhetoric they're spewing. They only have themselves to blame for not coming up with a better solution meant to keep the population safe from infectious diseases.

Unmasked people are virtually banned from all indoor establishments unless they have proof they're vaccinated, so I'm not sure what kind of fight you're putting up. Any business worth their salt are not going to listen to bad advice.

What kind of data would they be looking for that got the Olympics cancelled for an entire year? Whether or not the virus was deadly?

Several countries (who were not ran by staunch right wing idiots like Trump or Bolsonaro), already knew that and immediately declared a public health emergency was now in effect.

Japan also got this right in the beginning as well. Shinzo Abe or whoever was Prime Minister of Japan last year, was not going to host the Olympics at a time when maybe half the world was still marching in the streets against masks, and doing all other sorts of stupid shit before governments got their act together and enabled restrictions.

One year later, Japan was almost on the right path towards opening up and even hosting a safe olympics but 'shocker', the current Prime Minister is another Conservative fool who dismissed concerns that Japan was still not fully prepared to host the games safely and that more effort should have went towards supporting the local health industry first.

But since the country already pissed away Billions of dollars in a botched effort to try and save face, the Olympic games were scheduled to go ahead anyway. But the problems with doing this are so apparent. Several athletes are already confirmed sick, while they're still expected to compete in physical sports. It wont surprise me if we hear more confirmed cases over the next two weeks, especially when Tokyo itself has also seen cases skyrocket in the past couple of days.

Let me save you the time.

Nothing about the anti-Covid movement has done anything to advance humanity. And I don't say this out of any bias. When I look at conspiracy theories, I always try and support the ones that are meant to bring some kind of social good or positivity.

But the people who fought tooth and nail against any kind of restriction during a health crisis turned out to be the real villains. Sorry if that sounds blunt, but it's true.

The pandemic was never going to last forever. It was actually a nice litmus test to see which percentage of the population can be patient and offer self-control vs those who would choose to react irrationally in times of emergency. No matter what you think, you're still going to have to wait until science says it's officially safe for all businesses to open back up. We're not rushing it. It offered no benefits. Just be patient and wait for the social distancing and mask mandates to be over.

Edit: I also get bombarded with messages about stopping "tyranny" but it's moronic to pin that on a public health crisis which always require some kind of intervention to control. If there was a local restaurant serving radioactive meat or any other tainted food products, the reaction should not be to let them poison the community "becuz it's durr right!", but to get the health inspector to shut them down for reckless endangerment. Same logic applies with controlling Covid. It's not a right to infect other people with a contagious disease and believing it somehow is makes you a complete asshole. Just do the right thing and limit who you contact until the virus is over. It's not even hard or a difficult task. Building a rocketship to Mars is challenging. Standing 2 meters away from other people is Baby level. And watching grown Men throw a tantrum at such simple instructions makes them look dumber than infants.

"Oh mah gawd, I can't buy a bag of chips without wearing a mask for 5 seconds. This is worse than Nazi Germany!"

Grow up.

No, I would rather listen to Australia and New Zealand whose governments were some of the most proactive in addressing Covid and as a result, less than a thousand people have died in their countries.

Having restrictions is literally no different to demanding border control. The only way to keep a nation safe from a foreign threat, is to not let them inside your country from the start.

The Tokyo Olympics had to be pushed back by an entire year because of Covid, and even with the games officially starting tomorrow, several athletes have caught the virus and can't leave their hotels.

I seriously don't understand why would millions... no.... BILLIONS of people fake a virus at random.

If it's a game, it's not a fun one. If it's about money, governments are actually PAYING unvaxxed people to go get it, so that doesn't make sense either.

At this point, it's just flat out denial. But a very stupid one since the consequences of many anti-vaxxers is getting sick and literally dying from the disease, when everyone told them about the risks.

Your "culling" numbers are as ridiculous as the fake "case" numbers.

Keep telling yourself that when everyday, unvaxxed people are being sent to the hospital and are regretting not getting vaccinated when they have chance. Again, we are trying to help you. Everyone who keeps denying Covid always end up being the next natural selection.

If masks are so necessary for this airborne virus - why isn't anyone wearing goggles?

Except they are?

They're also all Zionists pushing their UN depopulation Agenda 2030. Why you can't see that boggles my mind.

It's the people who deny Covid that have been culling themselves the entire time. It's both hilarious and sad. You don't need an Elite government conspiracy to pull that off. Refusing to wear a mask and entering a crowded room is enough to get yourself killed recklessly.

Lifting Covid restrictions early never worked. They always ended in failure.

India was the last big example. They did it before everyone was vaccinated, and the result was crematoriums working overtime 24/7, burning more bodies then they can deal with, as well as begging the rest of the world to airdrop oxygen tanks because they exhausted their own supply.

People are too stupid to not take this virus more seriously. If there was an easier solution, we would have done it already, but nobody has. Life can only return to normal when most people are vaccinated. Otherwise, just be patient and wait.

It's honestly not a good one.

It's a virus that affects everyone, rich or poor. Every society would have been better off hitting the emergency breaks, instead of trying to claim it was a "just a flu".

Or maybe instead of ruining the lives of millions we could have isolated the vulnerable and gone on with our lives

We had a chance to prepare, but too many idiots felt it was more important to infect as many people as possible, instead of avoiding social gatherings. That's where the fault lies. Every passenger who came back from China had a responsibility to quarantine for two weeks. They refused because they were either ignorant or an asshole.

Also per CDC data more people in the US died from lack of access to healthcare during the lockdowns than from covid. So the lockdowns made things worse not better.

That's not the fault of lockdowns. People were going to die simply because Hospitals were overcrowding with dead bodies. That's how bad the situation was when we let Covid get out of control.

Oh I did. But this pandemic is a group effort and not an individual one.

Unvaccinated people are making the lives of doctors/nurses more rough, since they're the ones occupying hospital beds that could go towards other patients instead.

Like take this dumbass who said he rather get sick again than be vaccinated.

At some point, society needs to recognize these people are too stupid for their own safety. It's like how we have to give helmets to retarded people.

Have Black people ever said "thank you" for all the nice things White people gave to them? by radicalcentrist in debatealtright

t's not white replacement, no group of people are stopping whites from procreating like Black Americans and Hispanic Americans. There's a reason why the White American population is decreasing, White American Women don't act like using birth control is against the law. White women and White men are not being sterilized, if they want to have more White kids they are free to do so.

Whites are already a minority in the world. India and China have populations that dwarf Europe, but they still send millions of immigrants anyway. That's not something you can compete against using birth rates or any other measurement.

The only practical solution is to implement a quota system, which is what the U.S and many other White countries had before the 1960s, that prioritized importing White immigrants first.

Because that's none of their business, no government should force Whites to have children if they don't want to. A person has the right to procreate or not procreate, it's up to the individual not the government.

It is there business. Society can't survive when Whites are a minority, or more Old people greatly outnumber young people needed to care for them.

Respecting a White person's right to procreate or not procreate does not mean there is any nefarious complicity. Governments should be in the business of telling people how many kids they will be having?

See above. Governments must implement these policies to avoid going extinct.

South Africa and Zimbabwe are not examples of this. South Africa and Zimbabwe is in Africa, Africa is not the homeland of Whites. Europe is the homeland of Whites. In Africa, Whites were the invading and occupying force.

South Africa was empty when Europeans got there, and Zimbabwe was stuck in the stone ages before Europeans offered them a chance at civilization. Since these fuckers overthrew their governments and made life worse for everyone, it's safe to say Europeans were in the right to live there and stay in power given that the alternatives are worse.

I don't see a nation like Germany, France, Norway, Finland, Belgium and England electing a Mugabe to rule over a White majority in their White homeland.

So lets keep them majority White, instead of inviting more third world immigrants to displace them. That's what it means to stop White Genocide.

Paying taxes is not enough to keep a country stabilized. That's pretty much the bare minimum contribution.

Taxes are absolutely crucial in every emergency scenario. Using Brazil as an example, the President admitted their government is all out of money, which is devastating news for a country that was already dirt poor before Covid hit them, and now the people who need the most help are shit out of luck.

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/brazilian-president-says-his-country-is-broke-heres-why-11609949590

So I would say my contributions matter a lot. Going into outer space or building robots is cool, but as long as these Scientists live in my country, they're still benefitting from a society that can bail them out.

You're also dismissing Asian societies that managed to create stable first world civilizations that are not only mostly racially homogeneous (Japan is 98%), but non-white. Notice their birth rates are abysmal too.

I don't live in Asian societies. Good for them though, and my advice would be the same. If Asians enjoy 1st world status, then don't replace them with any other group who can't do it.

Read my post again. I'm not actually defending Walmart, but there's more nuance involved as to why they didn't shutter their doors.

They still sold essential items like food, which everyone needs to survive. And given how much bigger their stores are, it was possible to social distance. But they should have been heavily taxed or banned from selling non-essential items like video games.

As to the gov stuff you spouted above that. Governments dont make money. They spend it. The money they spend is the citizens money. The only time people in government care about losing money is when it comes to their paycheck and none of them lost a dime im the closures. If they couldnt work they were given supplemental pay.

That doesn't explain the many layoffs of public servants who depended on those services. Like bus drivers having their hours reduced or cut entirely.

The government already operates most of those public facilities I mentioned, so having to shut them down when it loses them money doesn't make sense if there wasn't a deadly virus going around.

The most egregious example being the Olympics. Japan was forced to delay the games by a year, and even today, they still wont make their money back since spectators are banned.

Such a massive pandemic that the walmart never closed but fuck you if you're a mom and pop store YOU have to close and lose everything because the waltons need a 10th yacht.

Walmart was still affected. Even though it's true stores did not close completely, they were still forced to implement indoor customer limits, as well as ban the sale of non-essential items.

Also consider the size and scale of a Walmart vs Mom & Pop store. Walmart has wider aisles and better ventilation systems, although I would support taxing Walmart more and sharing the revenue with other hard hit businesses.

No, they had advantages the minute they were born or stepped on U.S soil.

Look at the life expectancy as proof. Child mortality is still a huge issue in Africa, but breeding and keeping Slaves alive in the U.S was seen as important.

I don't care about reaping benefits of our ancestors. You know I'm leaving behind the exact same thing when my time on Earth is over right? I pay taxes so my country has money to not fall apart or become the next South Africa or Brazil. That's nothing special. What matters though is that Europeans are needed to keep any 1st world society functioning at all. And since they were in the U.S from the beginning, the non-white races living next to them were considered passengers on this free ride and always had benefits.

When you live in a place that didn't have those "necessities" in the first place, you don't really know or understand what you're missing out on. We can say what we would have chosen, but we can't exactly ask them because they're long since toast. There's probably something to be said about having a chance to die in your own land among the people there, versus dying around an unfamiliar people treated worse than sentient oxen. You can look at their culture within Africa during that time and say that it's barbaric, I won't argue. I don't know what the dynamics were, if they were willing human sacrifices, if everything was entrenched in fear or a sense of duty, that's something that would require not only research but an examination of the bazillion different tribal practices of the specific tribes that came over to the US.

Blacks continue to move to the U.S and other Western countries by the millions. Some are so desperate, they build dinghy rafts and float their way to Europe hoping a country picks them up.

It's not a debate anymore. If Blacks didn't feel like they were missing out, why come at all? Why not have Africa send a ship to every nation and take back their slave descendants? The answer is simple: they wont go back because they know life is better here and they could never rebuild the same societies without a white person to help guide them.

New York City wasn't settled until 1624, and looked vastly different than it does now. It's also cold as fuck, and my spoiled ass is very used to a warmer climate that isn't inundated with snow. If you're asking me personally, is there a "neither" option? If you're asking a hypothetical slave from that era, who knows.

How do you think New York City was settled at all and why do people live there? Obviously it took Europeans to transform it into the high tech society it is now. But whereas NYC always existed on that path to prosperity, there is no evidence Congo was ever going to see better living conditions.

In fact, even Muhammad Ali commented on what life was like in the Congo when he travelled there for a boxing match and admitted his great grandparents were better off being slaves taken to America, than staying behind.

They didn't come here for opportunity, they came here because they were made to, and weren't promised any of those things for themselves or their ancestors down the line.

You're missing the point. Those opportunities would not have came to them unless they were the lucky ones sent to the U.S.

Remember, the slave trade had never been outlawed by Africans, and it was even possible much worse fates existed for them had they actually stayed. For example, look at the slaves who ended up in Brazil, Jamaica or Haiti? Even when they now control the country, do you think they're prosperous? The answer is no, and in many cases, they don't even have the basic necessities I pointed out, existed in the U.S since the beginning.

Or look in actual Africa, where captured slaves who didn't get on the ships where just used for human sacrifice rituals. Getting their heads chopped off or even eaten. Had you told the Black slaves in America what life was like around the rest of the world, they would beg to not be sent back.

And vice versa exists too. Would you rather be a slave in the Congo, or a slave in New York City?

Yes, but there are many more pieces of Japanese created entertainment that is more popular in the West because it has a European aesthetic or is explicitly pandering to a western audience.

Dude, you're underselling Japanese culture if you don't think there's a global interest in people exclusively looking for content that has a Japanese feel to it. If you play video games, you should be aware there's an entire genre called "JRPG" which literally implies Role Playing Games that are made with Japan's taste in mind.

Even the popularity of anime is specifically because Japan took cartoons that were similar to Disney in the beginning, but handcrafted it with a different approach to storytelling and style.

I don't think ancient Egyptians are anything like Sub-Saharan Africans. There is a big difference between cultural inspiration and roleplaying as another race.

How many Human beings do you know that are talking animals? Do you think Mickey Mouse was a real person? In the world of entertainment, there's a choice between realism and stuff that is completely fantasy. Nobody has to be an actual Ancient Egyptian to make movies about them or use their ideas, and I only used that example because it's literally the biggest setpiece that exists on their continent.

It's not unheard of completely different cultures to borrow from somebody else and still be popular. I mentioned Star Wars before, but the actual main characters (Jedi) are again, based on Japanese Samurai. The reference may have flew over most people's heads because they're interested in the lightsaber fights and robots, but it still doesn't change that George Lucas only created them because he was inspired by another culture first.

Bringing a bunch of different specialized occupations together to create a large scaled industry is difficult.

So why do Indie movies exist? I just posted that George Lucas favorite parody was made by a couple of guys with only $8,000. Not every movie project will have multi-million budgets but that's not an excuse to not make them ever. South Africa's problems are not about lack of resources. They even made a movie before and it still did ok (i.e District 9). But brain drain hurts them from potentially making more like this, because all the talented people keep leaving as opposed to staying behind and helping to develop the local industry.

The Jewish problem plays a part because in areas where Blacks are coddled by Whites they have no interest in trying to compete with other races through culture. There identity only exists based on What Jews put into their minds and stupid victim narratives made up by their ancestors. They have no positive identity of themselves other than "When Whitey hurt us" and "When Whitey freed us from slavery". There is no culture beyond that for most Blacks beyond superficial status signaling.

You're thinking too much about Black experiences living in the West. Especially since those things DON'T apply to native Africans who never even got on the boats and left.

Canada, the U.S, France, UK, Germany, Australia, Sweden and many more, are all projected to have a non-white majority populations in our lifetime.

Call it "White replacement" or "White genocide", the effects are still the same. World governments are doing nothing to increase the share of White populations. They are in fact, complicit with watching it shrink and are importing more third world immigrants to deal the final killing blow.

And when White people are officially minorities in their own homeland, they will have no representation in government to protect them. South Africa or Zimbabwe are examples of this. You only need to elect one Robert Mugabe as head of state, who will make demands that White people hand over everything or face consequences.

Because they are all dead babe.

So that's the excuse? Why not take back all the slave descendants who are alive today?

Since slavery is officially over, you're making the argument that White people shouldn't even be forced to live next to people that serve no purpose to them.

Today I learned that "development" consists of slaving, genocide, and being a fat little virgin trying to justify slavery on the internet.

Ironically, when Africa practiced slavery, development went nowhere. An industry based on trading humans like livestock has never quite lead to societies more advanced than the Bronze Age.

When Europeans invented the steam engine, there was little use for agrarian civilizations. That's because strict human labor was being phased out in favor of more powerful machines that do the job better with less effort.

Lol "state enforcement".

Last time I checked, AFRICA HAS NEVER SENT A FUCKING SHIP to take back all their slaves from the New World. Why is that? Because Africans never cared about what happened to their own people they hunted down everywhere and sold to the highest bidder. There was never any racism. Black society has barely evolved past the stone age, and they remain undeveloped compared to the rest of the world.

It's not like all those years ago they plopped over here off a ship and just started getting shit for free, man.

But it was.

All the hard work of establishing a 1st world society was already built by European Settlers. Do you think if African slaves were dropped in the middle of an American forest, they would have came up with Democracy, roads, running water and electricity, two story buildings, farms, an army that uses muskets and cannons instead of spears, a public school system and police department?

Chances are, they would have starved. Whites gave them a place to live, and were forced to look after them.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh, I know what you're trying to do. You're trying to say Africans lived in complete peace before White people arrived. Sorry, but you're still wrong. Even without Europeans, the continent was always chaos.

For example, it was considered a tradition to use captured slaves for human sacrifice rituals.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annual_Customs_of_Dahomey

Since Dahomey was a significant military power involved in the slave trade, slaves and human sacrifice became crucial aspects of the ceremony. Captives from war and criminals were killed for the deceased kings of Dahomey. During the ceremony, around 500 prisoners would be sacrificed. As many as 4,000 were reported killed In one of these ceremonies in 1727.[5][6][7] Most of the victims were sacrificed through decapitation, a tradition widely used by Dahomean kings, and the literal translation for the Fon name for the ceremony Xwetanu is "yearly head business".[8] In later years this ceremony also included the spilling of human blood from the sacrificed.[4] Related with this, there was also a significant military parade in the ceremonies that further displayed the military might of the kingdom of Dahomey.[2]

The only reason we don't hear more about this stuff is because Africans never really kept much documents or writing behind.

It's actually annoying why do only White people get brow beaten with this? Every race has slavery, but only Whites were expected to apologize. Hypocrisy much?

On top of that, Blacks were still pretty much cared for. They were given free food and shelter in America. It was nothing like Haiti where the slaves were worked to death and quickly replaced with new ones.

Nothing changed. I still agree countries like Zambia or Botswana are slowly getting better over time.

But slavery has never been illegal in Africa, and it's more or less the natural order of things on that continent.

We only saw the end of the slave trade thanks to British ships enforcing naval blockades on Africa, ironically.

Yup, it's a conclusion I reached with my last thread.

Brazil had the same problem from the get go. They actually imported more slaves than the U.S and they went ahead and race mixed with all of them. The result? 50% of the Brazilian population works themselves to death, feeding the other 50% who don't work at all and live on welfare, forever. That type of fate is coming to America once Whites are a minority....

Hispanics will control governments, Whites will be taxed more, and Blacks will still cry "We're oppressed. Give us more money!".

If they don't apologize now, then the Hispanic majority that's predicted to take over in the future wont be anywhere as kind or charitable to them.

Black Americans are left with two choices:

  1. Stop White Genocide in order to not lose their victim status when Hispanics take over

  2. Go back to Africa and return to the simple life of enslaving each other for thousands of years, like their ancestors did.

Dual citizenship, or Jews choosing to return to Israel at anytime, represents separate loyalty. Passing laws that ban criticism of Israel, while also encouraging tax dollars go towards a foreign state instead of your own, creates an unfair advantage.

We know in America there are no laws that ban hatred or discrimination against Whites, nor are they given Billions of dollars for simply existing. Jews would start crying like babies if we took those privileges away from them. Like how about starting with the U.S government's definition of antisemitism?

No one can question Jewish wealth or power, but schools everywhere are ok with teaching "White people are bad, they must pay reparations or give up their jobs to non-whites".

He had no issues with inviting George Lincoln Rockwell to his speeches.

It was the 1960s, and his "hatred" was justified when he rather live away from Whites in a separate Black ethnostate, than be forced next to them.

Contrast that with Martin Luther King, where his "love and equality" ended segregation, and lead to more Blacks and Whites killing each other.

The reason is because Japan is westernized and they share the same social problems created by technology and urbanization that occurs in western societies. I don't think a dilapidated, African society will have much in common with first world Asian and European societies. Western societies also export their culture into westernized Asian countries which in turn inspires Asian creators to create works that are liked by western audiences. The creator's might be doing it to appeal to a larger demographic, the novelty of a foreign culture or be an emergent hit.

I don't deny Japan has borrowed from Western influences. But the opposite is also true. Samurai's and Ninjas are native to Japanese culture, and yet Western Artists have borrowed those foreign ideas for their own works (i.e Mortal Kombat or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) . Ancient Japan as well is also a popular setting that still enjoys global success.

African culture differs from the rest of the world, but if they were smart, you don't treat that as a handicap, but find ways to write stories about them. Egypt is quite literally exists on the same continent. If [sub-saharan] Africans were really desperate for ideas, they would just look towards their culture and make the same movies or games about their neighbor.

When people say Michael Bay is a bad director they are talking about storytelling and thematic depth of his movies. He has good special effects and action scenes in his movies. Can you name a Black director that does special effects and action scenes better than Michael Bay blockbuster hits?

His special effects are also criticized. That doesn't mean it has no talent. It's true creating those blockbuster effects are time consuming and expensive. But at the same time, people see it as lazy film making because it comes off as obnoxious or a distraction.

My point was a Black director doesn't have to copy the Michael Bay stuff to still make a good movie. There are plenty of low budget or Indie movies who put more effort into actual screenplay and writing, and the reception has just been as good or positive.

A perfect example of this was the Star Wars parody "Hardware Wars". Even on a shoestring budget of $8,000, George Lucas admitted it was actually his favourite movie that referenced one of his own.

It might be possible but do they have the operational knowledge and talent base or demand to make these type of movies?

The answer is "Yes". South Africa has schools, that each the same programs on movie making like anywhere else in the world.

But here's where South Africa is stupid. Anybody who graduates from these classes and are serious about joining the film industry, will rather immigrate to another country instead. This is called brain drain, and it leads to the vicious cycle where any native talent who could of made a great South African feature, is immediately poached by another country instead.

In regards to the rest of Asia, I would argue that they are already catching up to the West, instead of just being a place to outsource effects. For example, this may surprise you but the highest grossing films of 2021 were not Western made. It's actually Chinese movies who have been breaking box office records. Now whether or not these Asian films actually do better globally is yet to be seen, but we know the potential exists, and they continue to invest more money into this industry.

1) People generally don't want to watch films about Blacks. It could be because they can't relate to them or dislike them.

I knew this was going to come up.

The same could have been said about Whites or even Japanese people. Especially when so many popular IP's have ridiculous origins but later became big hits. A movie about talking animals sounds stupid right? Except that's literally how we got Mickey Mouse and a slew of other Disney films. Or how about a video game based on a fat Italian plumber? Except Super Mario is the most recognizable game character out there.

If people don't want to watch a film about Blacks, then there are a million other properties or ideas to work with.

2) African societies don't really prioritize science or stories with complex narratives and themes.

I agree

3) Black films generally are not shining examples of cinematography.

I agree, although a film can still be popular without it. Michael Bay still finds work every year, even though his gimmick is "explosions".

4) Why do you expect there to be a Black version of Star Wars? Blacks have higher time preference and probably will enjoy films that relate to their present condition.

It's only because they bitch when every TV Show or Movie features some Black actors instead of the entire cast being full of them. Which is where this thread comes from. Blacks and other minorities constantly clamor for "representation", yet they fail to even produce the same media on their own.

5) The Jewish problem is important because their indoctrination leads to lack of creativity because all potential inspiration is filtered through the Jewish perspective. 6) South Africa is a dysfunctional society, to create a Black society with competitive cinema and story telling would require an authoritarian, meritocratic state that practices eugenics. There multiple competing African tribes, it isn't just Blacks vs Whites in South Africa. Also, the stability and average of a society is extremely important for creating high culture. If you are catering to the lowest common denominator you end up with garbage. You have to set the bar high and select only the people that can appreciate and make that bar. The White South Africans that make world wide hits also travel to more successful countries to get funding for their movies.

Wouldn't it make more sense for Black Filmmakers to just ask the South African government for money? Assuming this is the same government that already hands out grants to Black businesses, funding for a movie should follow the same principle.

This is actually what the Soviet Union did. In direct contrast to Capitalism in America, the Soviets were at least able to have their own Cinema, because Movies were paid for by the State. And believe it or not, even with the small budgets, many Western directors were impressed or influenced by what the Soviets were producing.

There are several Black countries where this experiment could clearly be attempted, but the fundamental problem with all of them is it assumes that Black culture takes the same risks or values them the same way Whites or Japanese do. But the answer is that racially speaking, they are not equally capable to make these projects. And even when the opportunity does arise, then it's the same old movies about rappers, drugs, basketball or their life during slavery.

That was the point. Everyone knows Michael Bay's Pearl Harbor sucked, and there where much bigger and cultural phenomenons created instead.

White media doesn't need to indulge itself on tragic historical events or suffering. Franchises like Robocop, Terminator, Sherlock Holmes, Avatar, Citizen Kane, Warcraft, Warhammer 40k, Toy Story, The Wizard of Oz etc are ingrained in White people's minds and feature complex or futuristic themes.

If the problem was Jews, then why do we see the same gaps in every country? Blacks also live in Canada, UK, France, Brazil, yet where is the Black version of Star Wars or Superman? Even the other day, I made a thread about South Africa ending Apartheid, yet the Black government still did nothing to advance their Cinematography. It was actually a White guy responsible for any global hit from the country (District 9).

In regards to Asians, I do agree that most of Hollywood portrays them as nerds and cucks. But when you look at their countries of origins, at least one of them [Japan] tries to be very competitive. From video game consoles, to creating Pokemon or Godzilla, the Japanese make franchises that require a bit more complexity to understand or adore.

You could probably dig around and find some examples. If we are focusing on film, the majority of black writers / directors tend to want to portray the reality they have experienced and most of the time it was pretty fucked up. John Singleton comes to mind as an example. ('Boyz N the Hood' ' 'Hustle and Flow'). What is wrong with that? Great movies? Up for debate, but they certainly telling a story and certainly put a spotlight on certain elements of our culture.

I don't believe making such movies are "wrong", but it's terribly lame that they've built up an identity around "suffering". With Whites, there are movies that cover 9/11 or Pearl Harbor, but those things still pale in terms of other creative works like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, or Harry Potter.

If we were really to believe in the "equality of races", we would expect Blacks or Black Culture to regularly output the same media as Whites that explore the same thought provoking themes. The only other race that comes close are Japanese people.

The Boondocks is a strange one. On one hand, it does make some good social observations, like the famous *nigga moment". But then 5 seconds later, it goes straight into the "police kill innocent blacks" hoax.

I would concede Huey Freeman is a smart designed character, but for all the wrong reasons. He's a turbo SJW who hates Whites, when he should be a Black Nationalist like Malcolm X.

White America too could learn a thing or two from the Jewish community. The Jewish community does not abuse opioids, nor play the victim.

Ahahahahah.

It's literally a crime to criticize Israel. Of course they play victims.

To clear up any misconceptions, I don't mean "Black characters in media" I mean, "Media that was created by Blacks that emphasize intelligence".

As an easy comparison, look at Japanese Anime. Anytime you see Giant Robots, that's their culture having a love of technology. And as proof of their of ingenuity, they replicate their robots into real life.

That's your idea of seasoning? KFC?

11 herbs and spices

There's lots of reasons that you might want to keep ingredients protected other than it's especially cultural. And there's perfectly cultured cuisine that is not secret.

It's the same thing with Coca Cola.
