Thoughts and ideas to ponder

I received an email from a fellow student of a post production school in Burbank, and the content was quite interesting and some of the things I agree with all my heart; however, I do know that these little thoughts have been plastered around the internet, posted to many other places, and passed around the work area, but has anyone really looked into what they truly mean and compared it to the blight we are currently in?

  • Being a minority only makes you a victim of numbers, nothing else.
  • The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory are things like:
    1. United Negro College Fund
    2. Jet Magazine
    3. Black Entertainment Television
    4. Miss Black America
  • Try to have things like [below] and see what happens. Jesse Jackson will be knocking down your door:
    1. United Caucasian College Fund
    2. Cloud Magazine
    3. White Entertainment Television
    4. Miss White America
  • I agree with this one a little but my take on it is below it (not italic):
    • Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a killer. You can kill someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is trying to ban you from driving to the ball game.
    • Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a killer. But having a gun just makes it easier for you to kill without any guts, glory, or pride—the chicken shit way out; you want to kill someone, do it with your bare hands, if you can, and face that person eye to eye. I guarantee you 90% of shooting deaths would stop. So I still say BAN the FUCKING GUNS. Why do you think you need one?
      • Oh you say only criminals will have guns then. Having a gun makes you a criminal.
        1. It can get stolen
        2. It gets into the wrong hands and kids get killed
        3. Honestly, what chance do you think you would ever really need it? If you live in a bad part of town then MOVE!
          • I worked with a freak that wanted to carry a concealed weapon just to make himself feel more powerful and better than anyone else he knew or met—He, to me, was more dangerous than any robber. Robbers use the gun to intimidate, This guy would use the gun to kill just so he can say he killed and make an excuse he was in danger just to get away with the killing—people like him should not have a gun, but they gave it to him anyway only because the governing body was made up of people like him.
        4. If you think you might become a victim then it is your fault for making yourself one.
          • Meet neighbors and start a neighborhood watch.
          • Don't flaunt your belongings
          • Change your routine, patterns, and lifestyle every now and then.
          • Don't like the area MOVE.
          • Don't blame anyone but yourself. LOCKS are for honest people.
        5. Yes. There is a small percent that is truly robbed, but is a gun the answer? You have no idea when it will happen: the subway, city streets, in your home at dinner, while you are sleeping, taking a shower, in your car, in a store. When do you have access to your weapon in any of those situations other than a criminal or an officer? One? maybe two situations? Oh yeah, owning a gun is only to protect you in your home.
    • BOTTOM LINE: Guns are for chicken shit, small brained, little dicked, pansy assed, morons that need something to hide behind.
  • If you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is not a phobia, it is your opinion.
  • I have the right 'NOT' to be tolerant of others because they are different, weird, or tick me off.
  • When 70% of the people who get arrested are black, in cities where 70% of the population is black, that is not racial profiling; it is the Law of Probability.
  • If you are selling me a milkshake, a newspaper, or a hotel room, you must do it in English! As a matter of fact , if you want to be an American citizen, you should have to speak English!
    • I have no problem with you speaking your own language, but not to me, unless of course I speak to you in your language, which is me trying to be more open and a human being and not closed minded, but you still should speak English in Americas to us Americans first.
  • My father and grandfather didn't die in vain so you can leave the countries you were born in to come over and disrespect ours.
    • You are in America. You want to practice your religion, your faith, your beliefs, than do it where you came from or in your basement; don't force me to be tolerant or understanding, I didn't invite you. We will change over time, forcing us to change makes it worse for you, not us.
    • The same goes for America. Stay out of other countries business. They didn't invite us.
  • The police should have every right to shoot you if you threaten them after they tell you to stop. If you can't understand the word "freeze" or "stop" in English, [see the above lines].
    • And why is it you are here in America, not knowing the language, and are a criminal? Go back to where you came from and waste their time and money.
      1. You are disrespecting my and my forefathers beliefs and all the men and women who fought to give us our rights and freedoms [see the above lines].
  • Just because you were not born in this country, that you should be able to qualify for any special loan programs, government sponsored bank loans, or tax breaks, and so forth just so you can open a hotel, coffee shop, trinket store, any other business, or go to school when I am struggleing to make my mortgage payment or send my kids to college.
  • We did not go to the aid of certain foreign countries and risk our lives in wars to defend their freedoms, so that decades later they could come over here and tell us our constitution is a living document; and open to their interpretations.
  • I don't hate the rich; I don't pity the poor. I do hate inconciderate people either poor or rich.
  • Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and the Oil Companies have every right to keep every penny they make and continue to make more. If you don't like it then go and invent the next operating system and put your name on the building, or stop driving, find your own fossle fuels, don't create the situation where you need to travel—no one is telling you you have to go somewhere—live next to where you work, do something but stop complaining.
  • It doesn't take a whole village to raise a child right, but it do es take a parent to stand up to the kid and smack their little behinds when necessary, and say 'NO!'
  • Tattoos and piercing are fine, if you want them, but please don't pretend they are a political statement. And, please, stay home until that new lip ring heals. I don't want to look at your ugly infected mouth as you serve me French fries!
  • Most black people here in America were not born in Africa; so why do we call them 'African-Americans?" I don't go around saying I am a European-American because my great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather was from Europe. And there are black people in other countries. Do they still get called African-Americans? Or do they call them African-English? African-Italians? African-Canadians?
Now the end of this email is went on about God and the dollar and so forth, but the last lines were about God giving us a sense of humor to see a joke.

Now I disagree with this. If someone has the desire, the need, the time to post such ideas and thoughts but then state at the end it was all a joke they are either someone trying to make light of Americans and their strong closed minded beliefs, or they are just too stupid to realized that they just disrespected themselves and all their forefathers hard work and lives.

This is no joke.
