Oh and if you need to know what "perpetuated" means, just PM me.
americans were brought up with stereotypes and racism, it kind all just happens, we dont mean it to but i guess it can come out wrong, i do apologize if it offended you but c'mon, am i really off on my comment?
stereotypes are bad but if there is smoke, theres gotta be fire....

once again, if you dont got something positive to say, dont say it at all, my post i believe is just as bad as bjjs's post, i just made myself loud and clear...if you want me to delete my post i will as long as bjjs does the same....

there is no need for a posts like bjjs and mine, and i truly agree with that but just going after me and not bjjs, thats kind of unjust dont you think?

uh no. not at all.

If you really think they are the same, then i don't know what to tell you.


Continuing to dwell on this just digs you a deeper hole. Just drop it and move on.

nope.

generalize your frustrations if you want. i'm not going to censor every non-positive post. all i'm trying to say is don't call out individuals and provoke them into arguments. nothing needs to be deleted. i'm just delivering a message.

well, i made it a smaller font, so its more 'discreet' and lost the bold caps....
i guess freedom of speech doesnt apply in the Raptors forum.....

fancylad- what hole? i just voiced my opinion...and i was very up front about my post and still am...
or did u want me to post like bjjs and not mention names and start bashing other people with no reasoning?

Your logic is astounding.

Essentially, I can sum things up this way.

Americans are more cultured in basketball because more NBA teams are located there. So by proxy, Americans no more.

Canadians no more about hunting because apparently, it's what we do?

Do you see how absolutely ridiculous such a comment to make is?

Oh and great way of challenging discourse and dominant ideology. "We were just brought up that way". I wonder how many other groups of people could use that excuse?

You're embarassing yourself, so please take my advice and stop. You look very silly right now.

isnt that what you want in forums? arguements going back and forward?
that is why you got a "quote" button right.....?

k if u think there are all canadians are in this forum u r wrong. Canada is the most diverse country in the world. If u go to some towns u will only see Asians and east Asians. I was born in USA and moved to Canada when I was 11. So I see both sides and let me assure u Canada is very diverse

Really, it should be more intelligent debate and intelligent conversations, not something equivalent to that of school yard fighting and ridiculous baiting.
