"One famous example of a race-related microaggression happened when during the 2008 US democratic presidential primaries Joe Biden described Barack Obama as "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.""
holy CRAP batman

gattsu

matsuura_
basically, yeah
taylan: Biden. He's totally PC
Except for when he thinks his mic is off
gattsu
or when he's near an attractive female.
taylan
matsuura_: are you saying that every African-American who was mainstream prior to Barack Obama was not articulate, bright, clean and nice-looking?
ecbrown-
for god's sake, let's let this drop
matsuura_
taylan: not at all. How could you possibly think that without me having said those words whatsoever?
taylan
1. Joe Biden described Barack Obama as "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy." <matsuura_> He wasn't wrong
matsuura_: ?
matsuura_
My question still stands
taylan

matsuura_: what was biden not wrong about?
and what does mainstream mean here?
taylan
(Action) wonders if there's a language barrier
matsuura_
This is a logic barrier.
parsnip
(Action) wonders if there's a mushroom barrier
ryouma
matsuura_: can you explain the logic please?
ecbrown-
(Action) wonders if there is a great barrier reef
ryouma
maybe biden meant "presidential candidates" or something?
matsuura_
Yeah, I think what Biden said was valid. What I do not think is that what Biden said was tautological.

matsuura_: so you're saying that every African-American who was mainstream prior to Barack Obama was not articulate, bright, clean and nice-looking. OK.
matsuura_
taylan: if you can copy and paste those words coming from me, sure, I'll accept the claim made by my self, and perhaps agree, but until then, you're making sh*t up.

if someone said matsuura_ was a total dumbass, it would be valid. not that I'm saying matsuura_ is a dumbass.
I think parsnip was right about the shrooms
