    Yes Yes I do ( none ), he is definitely being too sensitive and maybe he would cry like a baby at the treatment he would get in NY but that kid has a Cannon for an arm ( again none just in case ), what bout you ? …..

    of course it’s probably not gonna happen cause the only way it would go down is a 3 team trade with the Mangini’s

    ^^I’m not for it for the main fact that I DONT believe Cutty is worth what we’d give up in draft picks, a huge contract to him, stifling Ratty and Kellen’s development another year, if he was a free agant I’d be more inclined..for all teh headaches..Let’s just build a Top 5 defense and roll with the kids for a year.

    .. yeah I feel you and agree but just don’t think Cutler could hurt, Rex would still focus on the D and running game and as soon as the D’s stack the box we would be able to randomly resort to the strong arm deep routes to put the nail in the coffin

    AMY GOODMAN: You compare this whole thing to a casino. Lay out the analogy for us.
    MATT TAIBBI: Well, you know, the biggest situation is, you know, a lot of these contracts, these CDS contracts, are like gambling, in the sense that—normally when you buy an insurance policy, you’re buying a policy on a house that you actually own. With these CDS contracts, you could actually bet on somebody else’s mortgage. AIG, for instance, could have gone to Goldman Sachs and said, you know, “We’d like to bet that the mortgages that were issued by JPMorgan Chase are going to default in the next ten years.” So these two parties that don’t have anything to do with the actual underlying loan could actually gamble on the outcome of that loan. So, this is—it’s really no different at all from gambling. And that’s why they had to seek a specific exemption from gaming laws in the year 2000, when they actually went forward with the deregulation of these instruments.
    AMY GOODMAN: What do you mean?
    MATT TAIBBI: In the Commodity Futures Modernization Act in the year 2000, they specifically exempted credit default swaps from being treated as gaming under any state laws. And they had to do that, because they were afraid that they were going to be regulated by, you know, state gaming agencies.

    They were the first (and still probably only) only Hispanic culture that openly refer to themselves as Afro-Cuban when applicable.

    ^^

    Brazil??…i here Salvador is like an African city.

    ^My badd, Brazil too. DEFINITELY in Brazil. Word to Capoeria.

    ^^^ehhh…techinically you were right the first time. brazilians aren’t hispanic.

    ^True, but they’re under the Latin diaspora and we need ALL those cosigns. Lol

    What would be the correct ethnic group for them then? Not being sarcastic, actually asking.

    To tag onto billz and anons comment , brazil is the blackest country in the world outside of Africa.

    @ b-ease

    i think they consider themselves of latin descent so perhaps latino? not sure about that tho. the modern meaning of hispanic includes people from countries that were formerly ruled by spain. since brazil was formerly colonized by portugal they aren’t “technically” hispanics in the modern sense. that’s all kinda besides billz & anons point tho…i understand what they were getting at.

    YN and Amanda Diva (not that her opinion really matters) are co-signing the Asher Roth album heavy. Twelve tracks is a good number, and this song sounds…interesting, for lack of a better word :

    8. As I Em

    Here’s the one that’s gonna get the Internets crazy. Roth goes right at it and addresses the elephant in the room. That’s right the Em is for Eminem as Roth breaks down the comparisons and pours out his heart and soul.

    …. I really wanna hear the album, dudes nice, his cloned Em voice is what gets me, not his fault I’m sure that just how he sounds all nasaly and shit but it still irks me, but dudes got spit those acapellas dre dropped were dope as fuck and I respect that he isn’t trying to be anything more than he is and is just being himself a different angle could be a real good look ….

    interesting convo tho billz. i’m always interested in how people, especially those living in countries of the african diaspora, define race. my brazilian friends who have lived in the US for a number of years define themselves as black despite their varying complexions. they’ve told me that its different in brazil though and whats black over here isn’t necessarily black over there. when i went to the dominican republic it shocked me how color conscious people were. i’m brown-skinned and there were people who were like one shade lighter than me who considered themselves to be something other than black. because i love being black i don’t understand the rejection. however, is it wrong for me to place my american definitions (which stem from the one drop rule) on others? does it make it less wrong because the rejection of their african heritage is due to the colonization by europeans?

  15. Shanti Says:

    y’all know what? i don’t know why i’m sitting around here asking questions and getting all deep and shit. i’m about to go to sleep. peace billz, b-ease, ty, nore.

    ^Technically you have no way of testing a “one drop” rule when meeting someone. That was something whitey created to further segregate and administer hate to whomever they chose. Being Nubian transcends boundaries that includes location, language, and culture. Your bloodline (genetics) and prevalent features are what’s determined as to who and what you are. Therefore, people can continue to “define” whatever they like. Hindu Indians are darker than some of the most strongest Nubian bloodlines, yet they are not “Black” or Negroid by any circumstances. They are of a totally different seed and their history and features show it. Same goes for many Ethiopians. Look at their eyes, hair, and other features. They are a culture within African boundaries however their distinct features is a clear indication that they were mixed in. Ask yourself… WHO do they look like the most? They are NOT the original Ethiopians. They are the ones who took over that land. Same goes for the Arab loiterers and trespassers that currently reside in Egypt. This goes back to the Hispanic islanders. They can choose to claim whatever they’d like, but genes don’t lie.

    ^Listening to Matt Taibbi will get you no where, he’s only poppin’ during hard times, he feeds of that…Now’s the time to get certain stocks for the low, but listening to that guy will leave you paranoid and broke.
