I have a CCW and I've killed less people than Obama.

Obama is a 1%er in killing people. Heck, he's a 1%er when it comes to killing citizens without due process.

I have a CCW and Hayward has told me I've shot my dick off three times and killed 97 people that did not deserve killing. Improper mindset.

Military base pay, in general, is exceeding low. A private makes less than minimum wage if you figure a 50 hour work week. 2nd LTs make <$35k in base pay. That being said, they get a lot of benefits, such as great health insurance at a cheap price, and housing/food allowances (or free on base housing).

There was an article in the NYT awhile back (and some variation shows up regularly) about how conservatives should love caps on executive pay because they love the military and there isn't much pay disparity between a private and a general. They always leave out those massive perks that high ranking officers get though (drivers, personal security, massive housing allowances, etc).

Besides the race baiting, I call bullshit. If a black couple had a white child after a mixup at the sperm bank, they would sue too. Same with 189123751389573289572 other reasons.

This is a "perfect" story to illustrate how the color of your skin affects your whole way of being. Had this child been born white the mistake would not have been apparent and there would be no lawsuit. But, unfortunately this child is black and will admittedly be treated differently through no fault of her own.

They've endured intolerance for 2 years. Imagine having to deal with it your entire life.

My advice to them is to drop the lawsuit, be thankful for the child they on their own could not produce because of their "alternative lifestyle" and stand up for their daughter. Shout down hatred no matter where it comes from.

White privilege is real.

Ugh, I saw the same story posted by someone I really respect, which made it worse. But then what do I know? I'm blinded by my own privilege confused.gif

The "privilege" meme is really irritating. It's just used as a cudgel, and applied way too broadly. "Fucking educate yourself" and "check your privilege" shouted at well-meaning people who happen to be white/male/well off just tunes them out of the conversation.

I'm well aware that I have some systematic advantages over other groups. I'm not going to reject those advantages, but I lack the ability to rectify the imbalance even if I wanted to. So what good is "checking my privilege?"

I think it's unlikely that they faced any problems in their white community. They're probably using that as an excuse because they don't want a black child.

A comment from another forum:

"This suggests a business opportunity: the Lucky Dip Spermbank, where clients get impregnated with the seed of some random guy off the street of any race or background. Because genetic determinism is "pseudoscience" and race is a "social construct", so any donation should be as good as any other! Let shitlibs put their money where their mouth is. Life is like a box of chocolates!"

I'm coming to view the privilege accusations as similar to affirmative action accusations.

The only reason a white het male gains success is not through his efforts but due to privilege.
The only reason a black guy male is not in jail and gained success is through affirmative action and not his efforts.

It's very symmetrical.

If they got a child with a genetic disorder such as being a midget would they not be entitled to sue? When you don't get what you paid for there should be some redress.

Although why they don't jusf abort the child and start over I don't understand. I'm sure the bank would comp them some white sperm.
