    I feel dirty just chewing gum there, like it would pick up the toxins the way it does in lab. However, since there are dirty fucking people, I'm thinking there's a niche for subway hotdog stands.

    Rat w/ mustard, anyone?

    I wonder what happened before the video came on.

    it looks like the chick eating on the subway was mouthing off to the guy who ends up trying to break the fight up.

    I dont get it when I was 20 interning I use to crush slices of pizza late night on the way home and not think twice about it-- guess its a black thing haha oh well. But seriously if you ever worked in a casual dining restaurant you have most likely served dirty (less than clean) food to the four top sitting in the booth.

    I put back some Mickey Ds on the subway every once in a while. The disgusted looks people give me are priceless.

    Hahaha, actually, yeah, Ive done this. After a night of boozing my attitude was:

    I'm eating a radioactive, fake meat, fattening, delicious McFatty burger. Do you think I care about health at this moment? Keep staring, you're jealous

    I've dealt with plenty, so I have a good understand of the ridiculousness they can come up with and it's quite sad. Plus I've watch an episode of Tyra (sp?) which was title something like, "Where have all the (good?) black men gone" or something like that. It was rather interesting to watch (though I hate to admit I've watch her show).

    It's worse being mixed. You get shit on by everyone. Black women ... ugh. It's so sad because there's so much that could've gone right but didn't, and instead it's a bunch of lazy people far too eager to get into a fight in public, shake their overweight ass in a club, scream if someone (white) dares insult them, yet completely happy to dance to music with lyrics like "Biiiitch, biiitch, shake that monkey."

    Wow, "blackfinancier", for someone who is so eager to advertise his race not only in his name, but in 3/4 threads, I find it interesting that you of all people would be the first to generalize this as the behavior of black women. I think that's worth some monkey sh*t, but I'm not familiar with the site to not too sure how to do that.

    Generalize. You have not met every black woman, nor have you met a majority or even a large sample of Black women. It's not possible. If you want to talk about the women in your family, or the women in your school, girls you have dated, that's fine. But don't talk about "black women" as a whole.

    As a minority woman who goes to a good school and is going to work for a reputable Wall Street firm, I find it disgusting that minority men label their own women this way. It's bad enough that minorities face discrimination from outside the race. When you who are a SO CALLED proud black man begins to steryotype, its just a shame.

    First off, these women in these videos are representative of women in black culture to those who see them, just as men in rap videos are representative to people who see them. There is no denying that. I agree that sweeping generalizations are wrong and unjust for all parties there is some truth to most stereotypes.. if that wasn't true it wouldn't be said. Also you generalized just as I did "I find it disgusting that minority men label their own women this way." Generalization that my views are representative of the views of all minority men... Lastly I love being black, wouldn't want to be anything else.

Don't let me catch you on the subway though, me and my friend just might BEAT YOU UP lol.

    Savages was in reference to anyone who acts like this(see:anyone who fights in public places) You can't tell me there there is ZERO truth behind stereotypes. i have nothing against black women who are upstanding members of society just like I have nothing against black men who are upstanding members of society. I have a serious problem with people who fuel the stereotypes. (see:above video). I do not wish to argue about this here if you'd like we can discuss this via PM.

    ^^Bravo are you a URM?

    Since I don't know what that is, I am likely not one...but could be...again, I don't know what it is, lol.

    Well, I am white, I'm a male and I live in Atlanta...so yes, I am a URM, lol.

    blackfinancier...please ignore love.live.life. It's refreshing to have an (seemingly) intelligent successful black male speak out against the people that drive the generally accepted stereotypes (whether right or wrong) about his race. Most of the members here are all smart enough not to peg everyone that belongs to a particular race to the negative stereotypes they've experienced or witnessed, but there is no denying that there is a whole lot of truth behind many of them. You are exactly what the black community needs, outspoken members that condemn the behavior of others (particularly the youth), whether it's because of the unacceptable actions of some or the support of and inaction by others to stop or amend that behavior.

    love.live.life, how can you disapprove of stereotyping people for the well publicized behavior of many of them and essentially claim you and your friends aren't any of the savages from that group but then speak collectively about being discriminated against as a race? I surely hope you aren't receiving any sort of financial assistance for being either a female or a (racial) minority, nor do I hope your college applications were reviewed in a different manner than that of a white male applicant.

    Regards

    Savages. Always looking to beat someone up, can't just have a fair fight the friend always has to jump in.... and black women wonder why black men act the way they do....

    Wow, "blackfinancier", for someone who is so eager to advertise his race not only in his name, but in 3/4 threads, I find it interesting that you of all people would be the first to generalize this as the behavior of black women. I think that's worth some monkey sh*t, but I'm not familiar with the site to not too sure how to do that.

    Generalize, or talk about first hand experience......

    Generalize. You have not met every black woman, nor have you met a majority or even a large sample of Black women. It's not possible. If you want to talk about the women in your family, or the women in your school, girls you have dated, that's fine. But don't talk about "black women" as a whole.

    As a minority woman who goes to a good school and is going to work for a reputable Wall Street firm, I find it disgusting that minority men label their own women this way. It's bad enough that minorities face discrimination from outside the race. When you who are a SO CALLED proud black man begins to steryotype, its just a shame.

    What racism do you or "minorities" face? Seriously, shut the fuck up with the racism bullshit. People like you who keep bringing the bogus and dated racist card are the ones who are keeping yourself down.

    Yes, never apologize for your race. I'm Irish and we like to drink and party - fuck anyone who has a problem with us. And if you used EOF / AAction then so be it. Most of the kids on this site come from at least middle class, and the these systems were created to help level the playing field.....they won't be there forever, so take advantage of them now.

    For what it's worth, I'm white as hell and can't stand white women [I like Chinese food]

    Get busy living

    I'm not successful yet, but one day. I'm the youth (I'm 18) so this drives me crazy because these are the type of things that have made it so difficult for the advancement of minorities. Look at what happened to Bill Cosby he speaks out against minorities thinking they are all going to the NBA and NFL and he is shunned in the black community... Truth hurts.

    Lol first off, no I am not keeping myself down txjustin. I'm doing just fine.

    Honestly, do you think calling a group of people Savages is really going to do them any good? If someone really wants to improve the state of the Black race, volunteer with children, women, etc. - understand the plight of the people and develop an approach to help change their circumstances rather than insulting them. Insults never go far in creating change.

    Nowhere on here did I condone the behavior of these girls. I don't surround myself with people who like to fight and argue in public - no matter what race they are. I'm a peaceful woman =)

    Let's look at this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxRhTPXPLUU&feature...
    Or this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkMs8SmCQfE&feature...
    This one maybe? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCyQSkd0ixA

    Or maybe the thousands of similar videos of caucasian girls fighting. But somehow I know no one will start saying "White Race Needs" or "White women, [ insert sterotype here]". I don't think seeing a video like this should prompt anyone to make such sweeping comments, which blackfinancier made, and with which I take issue.

    As far as racism, "What the Black Race" needs is to be free from steryotypes. "What the Black Race" needs is the opportunity to work to prove themselves without the notion that they are somehow priviledged for being Blalck or another minority. A Black person who is in any position of power is often looked at as being there only because they are Black or a URM. Behind this thinking is the inherent feeling that, without affirmative action, Black people would be nowhere. Its evident on this board in a lot of different forum topics. Oh you got into Harvard? Congrats! I'm sure 98% of the reasoning behind that is that you're black. You're in banking or consulting? Oh...it's because you are Black. Man, I wish I was black so I could get that edge- you know, so I could be unqualified but succeed! I'm not saying affirmative action does not help minorities (and White Women - the main beneficiaries), because that would be a ridiculous statement. I know I'm going to catch a lot of heat for this, but oh well. Affirmative action is there to help those who have historically been underpriviledged. Although it would be a lot better to do so with socioeconomic status, race is often times tied to socioecomic status. And, contrary to popular belief, not every black person is there because of affirmative action.

    Trust me, racism exists. Its not the same kind of racism that causes people to lynch Black men or harm Black children. Most of America has moved WAY beyond that, thankfully. The racism that exists today is the less overt kind - the kind where Black people are looked at and thought of as less than equals in ability or in mentality. The kind where someone can even look at a video like this and believe its appropriate to talk about "Black womanhood".
