This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Tell me hermano, would you exchange all the white libtards for non woke non socialist brown mexicans willing to embrace the USA and it's founding principles? WHY?
There's every evidence that first generation  Latinos (let's expand it beyond just Mexicans) that fit that bill have contributed in positive ways to the US.

I have cousins by marriage that were (and are) exactly that and, as a result, the greatest number of people with college degrees in my family at the time (this is during the 1960s-70s) were Spanish speakers. They fled communism, dove into the 'melting pot' and became very successful, especially in the emerging tech industry. They tend to vote conservative. They are the very model of the sort of people that benefit the US.

Up until their descendants get indoctrinated in your school system and then they become tools of the racist commie scum.

Greetings!

Of course, *skin colour* matters. Just like everything else that goes into particular cultural and tribal identities.

You have people over in the Middle East and Europe that can identify people by the shape of their eyes, their nose, or their ears--and we cry about skin colour?

In Asia, Chinese or Japanese set themselves apart from the "Jungle Asians" as I have heard them self-reference themselves. They not only look at skin colour, but also the shape of the eye, the nose, the ears, forehead, whatever.

So, yeah. In-Group and Out-Groups. Anthropology 101. Members of the In-Group are good and better than members of the Out Group. Skin colour is merely a more obvious sign of difference. But humans come up with or notice a dozen other details that mark whoever as being from the Out Group. Historically, the majority have always preferred members of the In Group.

That's just the way things are.

Given how many Latino's are now going GOP, that's a very relevant question.

I know my answer: if you could ship every last woke white leftist out of the United States, and replace them with an equal number (or more likely, a greater number, because there's way more of them) of anti-communist Latinos, you'd have a much better nation.

Just to let you notice that the equivalence between left and woke maybe is real in US (but I've my doubt). In Europe great part of the left isn't woke at all. So it is a fact that equalizing a big bunch of people (the leftist) with the woke people is like saying that all right people are subhuman mysoginist and racist idiots.

So it is a fact that equalizing a big bunch of people (the leftist) with the woke people is like saying that all right people are subhuman mysoginist and racist idiots.

  Not really, the far left, the "woke" is about 8 percent.  That is a shitload of people.  The far right, which political "experts" include evangelists into to get numbers are 6 percent, and that far right had crazy ideas like the way of American Life was under threat.  The number of racists or woman haters is a tiny number.   So it is not really a fair thing to say.  Maybe saying people who would protest and abortion clinic is an apt comparison (as that is a minority on the right, but definitely substantial, maybe 10 percent) but honestly, these are already lumped into the "far right", so 6 percent and better used as a comparison or bad equivalence IMO.   

   So I think there is going to be a big divergence in Europe between woke and left (as the woke seems largely an American born and indoctrinated illness) and not as big in the USA, which shows in the high population (8 percent) who are openly woke all the time.

Tell me something, who gets the coverage, who holds power, who is the one being pushed to the front by the left?

It's not the not woke left, nobody listens to them, not in the USA, not in México and not in Spain nor the UK or the rest of the EU. Whenever they dare speak they are branded as far right extremists. I know because I know some non-woke socialists I follow Spanish politics cuz it's my other nationality, Mexican politics because I live here, USA politics because it will impact us, and the same goes for the rest of the EU.

So sorry not sorry, but since the non-woke lefties are ignored by left politicians, "journalists", governments, etc they do represent the left.

But what I have always said: The Left isn't Liberal, never was and never will. They are commies.

Yes, liberalism and communism are polar opposites. It's weird that they've gotten conflated.

Exactly, one of the corner stones of Liberalism is owning yourself, ergo private property, you can't be a socialist (wanna be commie)/commie and a liberal, that's an oxymoron almost as big as Anarcho-(Leftism).

The Left loves to twist language; War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Truth is a Lie... and that they are Liberals or seek any type of genuine progress.
