What a drama queen.

Smaller populations have been shown to be higher educated, more productive, richer, and leaders in creating new technologies. Look at the Swiss, Swedes, and Belgians.

That right plebes. No more good jobs for you. Now get to be servants to the foreign tourists. Now get back to work mopping floors, serving meals, and cleaning rooms.

Posted in: Patients need doctors who look like them. Can medicine diversify without affirmative action? See in context

Virusrex: "And how does your personal situation alleviates in any way the huge disparities the article is talking about?

If other article talk about how girls are segregated out of schools, would you consider positive or useful if someone else comments how their daughters went to college without problems?"

I find it funny how you discount my real experience as a Black man in favor of an article that cites not one single peer review study. Only the opinion of a Black woman who lived in a small, rural town in Canada.

I would be in favor of a Black person who relates in issue of discrimination that they have never experienced that nor their family. Why would I trash their experience?

My issue is that race hustlers who earn millions a year in the race grift are now a special protected class that ONLY their opinion counts. And you my homie have bought that. So, who are the REAL racists?

As a Black man who has lived in Japan for 20 years, I do not care there are no doctors that "look like me", whatever that means. When I had a pulmonary embolism last year I thanked God the medical team, all Japanese - imagine that - were the best I ever had and saved my worthless hide.

CCP needs to be more concerned about their own pollution. They've over fished their own waters and now have to send their trawlers as far away as South America for a few fish.

Trump did himself no favors with his mugshot. Looks like a felon."

Yeah except in a Constitutional Republic guilt and innocence is not decided upon mugshots, if you like or dislike someone, or their weight, but only upon evidence.

Posted in: Burger King Japan’s new Crown The One Pounder is like a cheeseburger on steroids See in context

Wait a sec. All last week NHK kept telling us about the beef shortage. Mainichi ran posts about having to change eating habits away from meat because of "vast shortages". So what has changed? Has meat suddenly materialised or was all the meat shortage reporting lies? Because this promotion during a meat shortage makes zero sense.
