|4 years 50 weeks ago||Sorry, what I was trying to||
Sorry, what I was trying to say is that especially at work people try to be civil and respectful of each other. Why can't we do that in normal life as well?
|4 years 50 weeks ago||Yeah I remember saying the||
Yeah I remember saying the saaaaaame thing to my professor back in college, when he was talking about racism. Glad to see you can handle things just fine.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||I meant the youtube site is||
I meant the youtube site is famous for flaming comments. And if there are videos making fun of southern folks, than yeah that s a problem too. And guess what, those southern folks would know better what is acceptable or not than the northern audience who is doing the laughing.
I don't think TV networks are conspiring to demean Asian children either, only that this network piece was in the wrong. But thanks for assuming what my worldview is, and twisting my words. I'd assume your worldview is that everything is cool if its cool with you, but I think you're a better person than that.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||I never said it was racist,||
I never said it was racist, but if you think a major TV network targeting and mocking a group because of their race is no problem at all, count your luck stars you're not asian. And yes, America is a relatively race friendly environment. But it doesn't mean we can still make things better.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||Are you honestly comparing||
Are you honestly comparing random comments from strangers on a message board famous for flaming comments, with a major, national TV network purposely targeting, mocking, and broadcasting an entire minorty group?
No, its not a dastardly plot to fuel hatred, but Asians have been mocked and ridiculed for centuries because people seem to think its OK. Sure the adults can handle it, but what adults do children copy, and would you want your children made fun of? Why not let it stop? No TV network purposely mocks blacks or jews unless its their own race doing a self depricating joke.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||Really, mock any race or sex||
Really, mock any race or sex at a normal workplace 'for fun' and likely your boss will call you into his/her office. Why can't America strive for higher values where everyone is respected for who they are?
|4 years 50 weeks ago||Except they didn't. Why?||
Except they didn't. Why? Because its much more fun to laugh at and make fools of Asians, accents, etc etc. You won't find a video like this about whites, blacks or jews. Then why asians?
|4 years 50 weeks ago||Nice job twisting his words.||
Nice job twisting his words. He obviously meant to say that people who have actually walked in certain shoes are better qualifed to speak about their experiences.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||Why don't you see if||
Why don't you see if yourself, or your children experience anything similar and you'll still be saying the not a big deal line.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||Facts as in||
the yards ND gained and allowed, which were very decent bro.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||Most turnovers are a matter||
Most turnovers are a matter of luck yet impact the game in a huge way. ND wasn't as bad as the score was today, and we are not as good. Lets not ignore the facts too much.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||I agree||
I think a lot of us remember seeing Floyd play as a freshman against us and hoping he'd turn pro early. Too bad he stuck around....
|4 years 50 weeks ago||mAizer||
Without trying to sound like a downer, ND had more than 500 yards of offense, while they held South Florida to only 250 yards of offense. ND turned the ball over 5 times yet lost by only 3. It will be a good game next week.
|4 years 51 weeks ago||RIP||
Thoughts and prayers to the Dantonio family.
|5 years 1 week ago||Niiiice||
and that number will be down to 3... permanantly.
|5 years 1 week ago||Nice||
Honestly didn't think he would be this good, but glad he is!
|5 years 1 week ago||Always liked the guy||
Yeah he fell short of expectations, but always though he did it the right way.
|5 years 1 week ago||hmm||
Hope him the best, here or elsewhere.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||Oh my God||
to think I was pissed at a parking ticket I got today. My prayers are with Austin. Get well sir.
|5 years 10 weeks ago||nice||
nice childish immature comment.
|5 years 17 weeks ago||The fact that he is allowing||
The fact that he is allowing that some guys may be more athletic than him because they have different body types(or cannot put on good weight like Williams can) is very nice maturity for a high schooler. Great character!
|5 years 18 weeks ago||They definately have||
They definately have potential. Large number of students, good academics, huge media market. And with all their alumni, there should be someone willing to donate have a billion or so to get some decent facilities.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||I wonder if Buffalo really||
I wonder if Buffalo really has the potential to be a good D1 team. They're pretty much located in Canada.
Now Stony Brook, on the other hand may have potential I think. Close to New York, large student population, and good academic credentials. Now all they need is money. Lots and lots of money... which doesnt grow on trees last I checked.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||interesting||
Umass has a student pop of almost 30 thousand. While they don't have a big stadium or other facilities, I don't see how they won't overtake Boston College(a small private school) if things grow right, and become at least on par with Rutgers and Uconn. Not to mention they're pretty near both Boston and New York.
|5 years 20 weeks ago||there is also..||
this one.. right after the first goal.
|5 years 24 weeks ago||Ha||
I agree, there is too much evidence against Tressel.
Is 97.1 a Michigan leaning station? I moved to the San Francisco area a few years ago and even here the radio shows were talking/ripping about Tressel all morning. They hardly talk about college football let alone midwest college football.
|5 years 24 weeks ago||Tressel is lying through his teeth||
Look at the emails. He barely writes 3~4 lines in reply to multiple full pages of information. It looks as if Tressel barely knows the guy, let alone is close enough to him that he will commit major violations to protect him.
And in the last email Tressel ASKS THE GUY FOR MORE INFO AND NAMES. Is that not another example of a coach purposely asking a guy to break his confidentiality agreement with his client?
Not once in the emails does Tressel seem the least bit concerned with the lawyer.
I also call BS that Tressel was afraid for his players. Afraid of what??? A tat shop owner with some cash who was ALREADY being nailed by the FEDS???? Whats the guy gonna do? Shoot the most popular players of the OSU team while the feds are eating donuts a block away for something(discount tats) that completely pales compared to drug charges?
