"Europe is a Country, not a race?"
It's funny how when you get rubbed the wrong way you post the stupidest things. Case in point, I was perusing the new posts section and happened upon this post for pics of girls of European descent. And normally I would have just gone on to the next post, but the next part said no black, Latin, or oriental... which rubbed me the wrong way. So I had a useless conversation about if you are any of those ethnicities and born in Europe you are of European descent. I started the conversation out with, "Europe is a Country, not a race?"
There are many things wrong with this whole interaction:
1. When people are having fun, don't ruin their fun by being the PC police. Fun is fun, and everyone's fun is different. Whether you approve or not, you should not be having a philosophical conversation, especially on a call for pics page.
2. When you are being serious and say something that is utterly stupid, not only do you loose credibility, but no one listens to anything you have to say.
3. When ignorance is bliss, 'tis follow to be wise. People don't usually change their views by having their views attacked. Challenged maybe, but attacked no. Bottom line is if everyone is thinking one way, you will be hard pressed to change their thinking. Not to say, one voice can't make a difference, but fun is fun.
Last comment: Italy is in Europe and Italians are considered Latin, so they would be of European descent. And although Europe is not a country, it is a continent, European is not a race. Neither is German, Italian, Irish, Scottish, or British, and the list goes on.
If you read this Bog, please reply with your comments, good, bad or indifferent. I would appreciate others insights.
