When I read Harambee, all I could think of was the Boondocks.

So, UMASS is actively segregating?

I read it as they allow students to choose to live together with ethnically similar people, not forcing them to. But I could have misread it.

I don't believe that's any different than if I choose to live together with White Anglo-Saxon Protestants. They're not forcing me to live with them, they're simply keeping the unwelcome Jews, Asians, and Black People out... That's not segregation at all.

Would everyone be so accepting of it if it was a group of exclusively white people . . . and they held parties with pointy little hats? (because heritage/ethnicity and all)

How is using a phrase that someone deems to be a "micro aggression" considered sexual assault?

Do you have The Savage Nation call-in line on speed dial?

Saying that you CAN do something is in no way, shape, or form the same as saying you HAVE to do something.

And bringing up the KKK is one step away from Godwin's law.

My point was not in any way intended to advocate any particular group, extreme or otherwise; it was imply to say that when you allow and encourage any particular group to designate and segregate themselves from he rest, it seems inevitable that you are laying the groundwork for divisiveness.

I was about to point that out. I must now point out that I feel empowered because:
  1. I can sexually assault people with words
  2. Sexual assault is not reported to proper law enforcement agencies
...or perhaps they are confused as to what constitutes 'sexual assault'?

Excellent. I'm going to scrape some loans together and purchase an apartment building here in Chicago. It will be whites-only.

Obviously I can't force white people to live there, but out of respect to their heritage and the need to create a space where they can feel safe from exposure to the aromas of decent cooking, blacks, Mexicans, Asians, and other people of non-Caucasian ethnicity will be excluded from residency.

So, being Hispanic, are you barred from living in your own building?

Nope. Thanks to the trial of George Zimmerman, we know that I am a "white Hispanic," which is different from those poor, filthy Mexicans and Haitians.

I don't particular like the guy as a whole since I disagree with a lot of things that come out of his mouth but I love how he looks like a satirical character on the daily show when he dresses in a suit and combs his hair to the side. I thought the last video with the news anchor was some sort of parody at first because of his hair looked like a terrible wig.

From the comments on the Milo interview: "you know somethings wildly wrong when men have become such unbelievable pussies it takes a raving queer to set them straight (pun intended)"

All heil Milo and the late Hitchens.

Trying to think of anything Milo and Hitchens have in common.
Gay - Straight
Roman Catholic - Anti-theist
Interrupts others - waits patiently to speak
Libertarian - Socialist

I did think of a couple of similarities:
British
Outspoken
