If you deal with kids you might have found one that has an unhealthy obsession. It could be reading, video games, fighting, watching tv, pokemon cards, whatever... You eventually have to step in and say you can only do this activity for this much time and you need to find something else to do with the rest of your time.

The 91% tax rate functions much like this. It says, "Dude, your just running up the scoreboard. There's more to life." Some people just never mature enough on their own.

Sure, there's no way you can construe "males" to mean "white males" based on your sloppy writing. The educational data certainly does account for income and race. Whites do better in both, with less poverty and more opportunity when in poverty.

That's not to say there aren't plenty of whites with problem worse then plenty of other colors, but your blanket statement alleging lack of opportunity for white males is simply not true.
Maybe there is a lack of opportunity for assholes, that would explain your problems. If I had more time I would look for some data for you, since you appear to have substandard analysis skills.

I'm not sure I see alot of "not judging by others of my race's action" from the white people are discriminated against crowd. In fact, it seems like minorities in general are being lumped together, whether we identify ourselves that way or not.
I'm hispanic, but ethnically ambiguous. I get asked if I'm asian often and I thought I could pass for white, but my white wife disagrees.

Where are you getting your data? Here's what I found. It doesn't seem to support your analysis.

Criminal Justice outcomes are also widely accepted as being worse for non-whites, as well as health outcomes. Granted, much of this is due to poverty which you can pretend is not related to race, despite boatloads of evidence to the contrary.

What some cursory evidence does seem to indicate is that the gap between outcomes for different races is narrowing, slowly. This is probably what your really noticing.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume your just ignorant, not racist.

Comment Re: Nobody is buying email software anymore (Score 1) 244

I have a "family" gmail system. We share calenders fine. My wife and I sync ours to each others phone. I also share email with my kids. I have it configured so I can log into their email from my account. For kids to young for their own email, I configure an alias for my account or my wife's and set forwarding rules to make sure we both get the messages.
It's pretty easy.
