The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Well, I don't like affirmative action, and I don't understand how anyone can.

    Sorry bout that, I'm white, and yes I know how you could be treated in a small town, but that isn't the way it should be. I've especially seen how black people can be treated in a small town,a nd it's wrong too.

    One thing I really don't understand is how a native american could be called a foreigner. I myself even have native american blood in me, even if I am pale as all hell

    lol, I'm Indian as in having origins from India, my parents cartoonish accents are enough to provoke doubt

    but Yeah... I agree with you on that, I don't believe in Affirmative action either.... its not a solution to anything. Racism's a social problem that no one has a monopoly on....I don't think any one race is worse another. if you look at it in terms of the whole world, America is a hell of a lot better off than most countries. Thats what matters.

    Reinier, I'm not talking about only Saudi Arabia, I'm talking about the majority of the Middle Eastern countries, Iraq, Iran , Saudi Arabia, Lebanon...

    All headed by corrupt leaders who do not allow freedom of press, their citizens are poor as dirt, yet they are wealthy, and blame all of the problems on the US and the Jews.

    Inter-racial marriages are happening more and more often, and that looks like the only solution to stop racism, when we are all of the same race.

    Many of such countries have leaders that the us shoved in there so that their money would be invested in us interests

    Yes, thats exactly what I'm saying. Every person is just as capable of committing a terrorist attack as any other. Just because it was Muslims the first time doesnt mean it will be the next time. Basically all I'm saying is that everyone should be treated equally and they aren't being treated with the respect that we ALL deserve.

    Well the definition of racism is the separating of one race from another, so I think this has everything to do with it.

    If somebody's feelings have to get hurt to stop an airplane from flying into a building or a suicide bomber from exploding in a mall, then so be it.

    I'm more concerned with my safety and that of my friends than someone's hurt feelings.

    " If we must sacrafice freedom for safety, then we deserve neither" - Thomas Jefferson

    I would gladly take the extra danger, if it is at the expense of civil liberties.

    As far as the U.S supporting ruthless dictators, here are just a few:

    Saddam Hussien- The U.S supplied arms and aid to Iraq with their war against Iran in the 1980's
    Augustus Pinochete- Chile dicatator who is respnsible for countless genocide.
    The Shah of Iran- U.S supported the shah even thought he had a ruthless secret police, that executed politcal dissendents.
    Chaing ki shak- the former dictator of taiwan, also responsible for countless genocide.
    Pres musharaff- dictator who is not free from millitary atrocities, including genocide.
    Afgan freedom fighters- many who have become the terrorists we fight against today
    fernando batiste- cuban pres/dict extremely corrupt and brutal.

    list goes on and on

    SweetP - you have your definition of racism all wrong.

    Powerman - you hit the nail on the head.

    Nate - Profiling does not violate civil liberities. I agree otherwise though.

    racism isnt just the seperation of races. it could even be within your own race. you cant just go by the dictionary. you have to go with goes on everyday in society.
    in the dictionary i looked up, it says "racial prejudice or discrimination".
    of course everyone should be treated equally, but it doesnt mean they are going to be. of course they arent.

    What does that even mean though? Do you live with people of the opposite race? No? That must be racism then.

    lol

    Reinier, I didn't know chile was in the Middle East.

    Supplying arms or funds for a short period of time ifor reasons which you guys clearly forgot to mention, does not make the U supporters of the leaders and the way they conduct themselves and rule over the country.

    Look what happend to most of these leaders.

    America's political life would be soo much easier if it didn't support Israel. That is the root cause of all the hatred people in the middle east feel for America.
    End that, and the terrorism threat ends with it.
