Sure, explain it away as old testament. I'm fine with that and I acknowledge that the OT is just in the bible for historical purposes. Even if I thought the bible was to be followed word for word, I would dismiss the OT.

If you followed my link you would see some admittedly less clear NT passages:

here are also New Testament passages cited as justification to kill non-believers, e.g.

Luke 19:27:
But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.
As well as
Matthew 10:34:
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. /quote

These days, Democrats and progressives believe that blacks are doing poorly because they suffer from a legacy of slavery that is inherited in some unnamed and unverifiable way.

You can literally find hundreds of pages explaining to anyone who cars what those "unnamed and unverifiable" things are. They are also verified by extensive historical records, kind of like the ones I linked.

Lynching and white mobs were not the progressives of their times, not as we understand "progressives" to mean today.

Wow, you have a warped view of reality if you think today's Democrats are the same as those. The white mobs were conservative, not progressive. They were holding onto an old way of doing things. One that discriminated against blacks. That's pretty much textbook conservative, but go ahead and put your head in the sand.

OK, if nobody would hire you for "white box", why couldn't you continue "black box" testing with responsible disclosure. There is a lot of money in that.
I was confused because you indicated an inability to break into the industry and assume you misspoke trying to indicate what you where doing was unsanctioned and not necessarily legal.

Like, for example, when people propose cutting public funding for education, healthcare, welfare, abortion, and all that

or you propose doing away with corporate welfare, rural subsidies, mortgage deductions, etc...

Here are the examples you asked for: http://www.ebony.com/black-his...
Heck, you should even count the US Civil War.

Note the lack of official punishment for any of these acts. They were tacitly condoned. Even the Civil War instigators were pardoned and allowed to reintegrate.

My first 'formal' computer programming training was in High School, using a language developed at the University of Toronto called Turing.


It was a cute little language, and I remember doing some fun stuff in it, including some basic 3d wireframe engine work. Which was pretty exciting stuff in high school computer programming in the early 90s on a 386.

Riots, looting, and violent political actions are overwhelmingly carried out by leftists (and I include fascists in that), not by conservatives or libertarians.

Well...who needs to riot or loot when you can twist the laws to do your bidding. As conservatives become unable to do so, you'll see much more rioting, looting,and violence; rest assured.

I remember you preaching in another thread. Do you follow the bible and kill unbelievers?

"If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you ... Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die." -- Dt.13:6-10

Well, I was responding as if your bullshit scenario was true, it isn't. Your Muslim bashing is purely made up, small minded fear. So nothing else you said bears any resemblance to reality. Before and after we invite Muslims in, nobody want's homosexuals thrown off buildings, except maybe Evangelical's. They are a stain on America that has done way more damage then Muslims.

Read some history, it's basically a long story of people being horrible to each other, so what. We've spent 200 years fixing that and assholes like you want us right back there, with you on top.

In conclusion, fuck off, take your hate somewhere else and peddle your bullshit to someone with a soft head, we're not buying it over here.

I would love to hear the explanation of how a general purpose language would protect you against attacks like that, clearly called out in the article.

You're doing the snowflake thing, blaming everyone else for the coders' incompetence and unsuitability for the job. Some dweeb wrote a tutorial and because it's not ready to be cut and pasted into production code, that's the tutorial writer's fault.
