Sounds to me you are describing the same thing as him, just you personally happen to want to buck the social norm so you live in a different oil bubble than most of your race.

If every day the bus was full of multiple races including white and your job was full of multiple races including white, you would actually describe what you think is happening.

At my place of work, about 1/2 the employees are white, about 1/4 are Hispanic (mostly Mexican, but a few from further south), about 1/8 are black and about 1/8 is from somewhere else (mostly the Marshall Islands or China). Everyone gets along pretty good without any racial divides. All in a part of the country that, if most think of it at all, most think of as utterly lily white.

No, but you did say that black women aborting their pregnancies has resulted in very slow black population growth when in fact it is higher than the majority growth. Words like "very slow" have to have a reference and are not absolutes. In population analysis of humans in north America the reference is Caucasian in all but a few local areas.

But at home you are paying a license for your own private enjoyment. Charging admission or any other public re-performance is against that license. They have a license for public performances, it costs more. Movies are the same way, you can rent a movie for a buck and go home and watch it but if you hook it up to a projector and have all your friends pay a buck to watch it you are infringing on the license. If you do it publicly enough, you will get sued and rightfully so.

I am atheist and while I am pro-nuclear power, pro-vaccine,and believe in global warming I am very much against GMO foods. I against them though because if the transfer of power they represent, not about the food itself. No study has ever shown GMO corn is any less or more healthy than natural corn. GMO foods shift power from the people and the farmer to the chemical company. GMO crops encourage the indiscriminate use of herbicides that put other crops and the soil itself at risk. If you don't believe this, try to grow a non-"Roundup Ready" (TM) crop in a field that has been sprayed with massive quantities of glyphosate for years.

This is a classic power play.
1. Sell seed that make it easier to grow a crop

2. Sell a chemical that removes the competition in turn raising yields

3. Said chemical poisons the soil making it impossible to grow anything but said seed

4. Profit...lots of it, for now and the future

What? You might want to think about exactly what you wrote there. Where would the magically cold air come from to replace this pumped out hot air?

The "pump" action you describe is the warm air let into the cabinet cooling off and thus shrinking, which in turn "sucks" the door tight. There is no air pump on any refrigerator manufactured since they had blocks of ice sitting on top of them.
