Subject: RE: Where is 'Caucasia'?
From: GUEST,in room 325 of the Motel 6
Date: 24-Apr-01 - 10:55 AM

In another thread on April 19, Alex/Mousethief, the self-proclaimed, "white male...Christian," said, and I quote, "I'm no Jew."

On April 23, in this thread, he said, "If you were about to argue with me on this point, Get real. Get a life. Or just drop dead. Thanks."

Based on the things he says, I'll concede that he is most certainly a "white male." However, Christians do not tell people with whom they disagree to "drop dead."

Alex/Mousethief is a liar when he proclaims himself to be a "Christian."

I started this thread so the slimy coward who hijacked another thread just to attack me can have a place to say nasty things about me without ruining other threads.

Let me point out that according to this coward, I should not claim to be white -- apparently he wants me to be ashamed of that fact? Nor should I say I'm not a Jew -- perhaps I should lie about my religous beliefs as well?

And I'm not to express any strong emotions, for these are incompatible with HIS definition of "Christian."

Yet he is too much a coward to sign his name.

I am not.

Senor el Teef, you would be a liar if you called yourself CHRIST.

A Christian is someone who is trying to go in a particular direction in a particular way, not someone who has already gotten there; someone who has a particular approach to getting up and moving forward when he has fallen down, not someone who never falls down.

Alex, you lose direction and fall down no more and no less than anyone else I know. I am proud to be your friend, and your sister in imperfection and effort.

Ohhhhhh BOY!!!

Mousethief!!! You are a vile, unprincipled, seditious son of a sea cook with the face of a pig and the sensibilities of a Sicilian pimp! You are as depraved as a botany bay moneylender. The sun won't shine where you walk, nor will the lilies grow there. Your statements are unconscionable, your attributes puerile, and your taste in dinnerware is absymal. Sorry, I meant abysmal. Absymality is actually beyond one of your limited IQ. Did I mention that your haircut really sucks? Oh, and then there's your taste in clothing...I must remind you that ties with flourescent Elvises on them are no longer in style, not even in Seattle.

However, it is these very qualities that help to make you one of my favourite comrades on Mudcat...keep up the good work I say! :-)

p.s. Anyone can be held up as a racist, an anti-semite, or any other handy label like that...if you very carefully comb through every word he or she has ever written or uttered...and quote it out of context. This, by the way, is how the Nazis, other racists, and genocidal maniacs like the conquistadors used the Bible to justify their own depredations on humanity. They simply picked out a handy few words or passages, out of context, and away they went. Any asshole with a chip on his shoulder can do it to anyone else he chooses with the greatest of ease.

First of all: Like Kendall you pissed me off a while back too - but I forget why but I believe we sort of came to an agreement and I certainly don't hold grudges (they tickle my webbed fingers).

Part B: Somehow I ended up sort of agreeing with you on the Yom Ha'shoah - mostly because it didn't seem that you were saying anything horrible - just not expressing yourself in a way that wouldn't enflame those for whom the issue was REALLY SERIOUS.

Section iii: ummm . . .

Area 54: Mollificent - happy birthday! It is my birthday as well!

Rule # 6 - There is naaaaaahhh Rule # 6

Lucky 7, Lucky 7! - Mousethief: To stay on topic - I shall fart in your general direction!

Let me try and understand what you're saying. Mousethief's statements about Yom Ha'shoah didn't "seem terrible" but he said them in a a way that would "enflame those for whom the issue was REALLY SERIOUS."

WOH!

I'm not Jewish, but the Nazi Genocide of the Jews is a really serious issue for me, as I would hope it would be for any decent human being.

There's quite a difference between not being ashamed of who you are and proud proclamations. Stating or insinuating that Alex is a racist takes an extraordinary degree of misinterpretation and failure to see the forest for the trees.

Racism is defined as the belief that ones own race is superior and has the right to rule other races.
I've never seen Mousethief claim anything of the sort.
That said, he is a totally obnoxious and sorry excuse for an inhabitant of the Left Coast, never mind somewhere inhabited by ladies and gentlemen of refinment and sensibility. His purile and inane postings lead me to the inescapable conclusion that he doesn't have enough brains to keep his scalp inflated and that he- in all likelyhood-wears black socks with brown shoes if indeed he wears socks at all.
These are the best of his bad points. He has no good ones.

First of all GUEST - At least make up a fake nae when debating me - It's just so impersonal otherwise.

Beyond that - let me restate is I might.

There are people who will not allow any debate on certain subjects - these are the people I thought were having a problem with Mousethief. As far as I'm concerned there is no subject that cannot be talked about and Mousethief was right - the average American who sort of goes through life without really looking around and investigating things probably thinks that the Jews were the only ones who were exterminated.

Some of the discussion on this thread and on the other threads that have been refered to here surprise me a little bit. I know mousethief has categorised himself as a 'white male' in his Mudcat profile.

But the accusations that he is a white supremacist or anything of the sort seem a little bizarre when you consider that he has stated in the forum that he is part American Indian. White supremacists don't do that, do they?

I'm baffled by all of this. Why is it ok to be proud to be black but not to be proud to be white. Why isn't it ok to be happy to be the way you are. There are organisations such as The Instutute for Black Studies ... if there were and Instute for White studies there would be uproar. In England there is a government dept for womens affairs... nothing for men of course... if there were it would be sexist. There are many who are proud (quite rightly) of their black origins.. black culture.. black music.... as soon as some poor sod says he's proud of being the opposite.. he's a racist bastard who should have been hanged, drawn and quartered before conception. I really think you should examine your own motives before you say anything here.

Well, a partial rebuttal. I'm all for taking reasonable pride in who you are, and not overreacting to those who do so. I would point out, however, that the reason we have things like an Institute for Black Studies and a Department of Women's Affairs, and don't have corresponding constructs for white studies and men's affairs, is that historically whites have been well studied and men's affairs well tended to, usually with the exclusion of blacks, women, etc. from consideration. The idea isn't that whites and males are being overlooked now, but that non-whites and females have been overlooked for centuries.

One is as exclusionary as the other. No one says that there should not be Black or womens Studies but there are no White or Mens studies programs; in fact, it would seem that the very idea is ignored.
Is everything there is to know about Whites or Men known? True, non-whites and females have been overlooked. Because they are now being given the chance to have their own departments of study so the scales will begin to come into balance, does this mean that Whites and men must be ignored until some mystical equilibrium is achieved?
Is it OK to be proud of being Black but not of being White; of being female but not of being male?
And, if it is OK, why is it OK?

You are certainly right, GaryT, about "minorities" being overlooked in studies but I tend to agree more with Orac. We've done so much to placate the "overlooked" we ourselves are being made to appear as "the bad guys". A "Black Pride" month would not get many people's ire up but a "White Pride" month sure as heck would.

I would have thought that the changes in the roles of men and women were more brought about by two world wars than any of these organisations. If things are so great for men why are 70% of suicides men. Does the Dept for women's affairs have a separate one for black women.. or are all women the same regardless of colour? Does that mean there only a difference between white/black men? ... I'm still confused...

Troll, and Orac -

Keep in mind (and DON'T point fingers at me and say I'm a rabid femenist because of this) that the tradtional male and white interests are still being explored and studied. Strangely, they fall under the category of wat we simply call 'studies' - as in, there is fememist literary criticism, black literary criticism, and then literary criticism. The last one covers what could be classified as 'white Anglo-saxon male dominated criticism' and always has. That's why there is frequently not felt to be a need for a specific study or interest group.

I am not saying that this covers the interests of white men only, or even appropriately - but traditionally, it's sort of been their bailiwick, and there's been no need to attach "white studies" or "masculine criticism" to it.

On the other subject- I'm white, at least in skin, and I don't see why I should be ashamed of it. I suspect there are African Americans (ex slaves) and likely also Native Americans in my heritage. I like that - but my skin is kind of pale pink. Okay, so as I child I always wanted a pretty brown, but I've learened to deal with what I've got. If you don't like it, that makes you a racist, not me.

Oh, and Alex, You're a git. And a... a.. cream-faced loon. And a badger-backed ankle biter. No, seriously, you irritate me from time to time, and I don't agree with your attitude towards homosexuals, but you're a nice guy. I disagree with lots of people.

Hmmm...Once I received a rather vicious personal e-mail based on my espousal of the golden rule, more than once I think, here in Mudcatville, because it was overtly Christian. They also didn't like my signing of each post, "Peace"; perhaps I sound self-righteous. I still think it works (the golden rule that is), unless of course you want folks to beat the crap out of you (in a literal and figurative sense). In the case of which I write, it was assumed that I was anti-somethingoranother because I am pro-Christian. Huh?

As long as I live I won't figure it out. I am pro-bicycle too, but I'm not anti-walking. You can get where you're going in more than one compatible fashion without trodding over another's methods, faith, or sensibilities.

Well Mooh.. maybe its because many Christians think they have a monopoly on being decent human beings. You may not fit into that category of course. Its the use of the word "Christian" with this meaning behind it (rather than its real meaning) that many will object to. Like racism it assumes an elitist position. Many Christians tend to look down on the rest of humanity in the same way as white/male extremists do with black/jewish/whatever. What you have to realise here is that its very hard to know what anyones real meanings are when you just read few typewritten words, hence the problem Mousethief has. There will always be someone ready to jump down your throat and then others with an axe to grind will join the bandwagon.

Hey Mooh

Jee, I usually complete my posts by saying "pax yall" and have never been attacked for saying peace. I guess all the people who don't like it don't understand Latin. . .

Oh . . . and by the way - I'm not Christian, though I try follow the teachings of Jesus along with other religious and moralist teachers.

And yes I'm white - am I proud of my heritage? Not particularly, though I am not ashamed of it either. Frankly, my heritage is only a small part of who I am.

I am not responsible for a single thing that any of my ancestors did, let alone those people who are racially similar to me - how can I be?

I am responsible for my actions and sometimes I make mistakes and some people around here seem to think that a mistake is a reason to denegrate someone entire character.

Orac.

I agree. And, some Christians seem to forget there was humanity before Christ, and humility after (um, meaning and during) him. It IS hard to fully gather someone's meaning from mere words without the advantage of the voice's support, a fact that's been mentioned here before to be sure.

Blackcatter.

I've noticed your pax and it always reminds me of my Dad who sometimes would sign letters to the congregation (he was a clergyman) the same. This is a pleasant reminder. I agree with you also regarding the perception "that a mistake is a reason...". I'd rather be corrected than dismissed (or dissed), even if my ego gets bruised in the process. Much of my fun here in Mudcatville is "listening" to everybody get involved with one another enough to be comfortable correcting and discussing and sharing views, even when they're not my own.

WYSIWYG.

The Golden Rule was an old concept before Jesus was born. Blackcatter, you and I are close in our philosophy. It's hard for me to think of being proud just because I'm white. Why is that something to be proud of? I had nothing to do with it, I did not earn it, and, it is not nearly as important as being a good person. How can we justify being proud of anything? Does this not imply superiority? an inflated ego? "Pride goeth before a fall."

about racial/ethnic sensitivity:

there are those who are white/black/Christian/Jewish/Asian/Hottentot/Buddhist...etc..and are comfortable just being what they are...there are others who are actively 'proud' of what they are and active in promoting, supporting, defending and studying their group...

and then there are those whose major hobby seems to be being black/Jewish/Irish... etc... and being aggressively sensitive about it! These folks can be a bit tedious, even when they are right about some point.

as to various comments above about supposed insensitive references to religious/ethnic groups, I am reminded of the time when Samuel Johnson, compiler of the famous dictionary, had a group of 'ladies' call on him with a complaint.

"Dr. Johnson", the spokeswoman said, "we must protest the inclusion of some very vulgar words in your dictionary"

"Madam," replied Johnson, "You have been looking for them!"
