Being that we don't buy into the lefts definition of "racism" we believe that this post is truly racist.
Can you believe he said such a thing? He thinks he's rational and thus in a minority amongst blacks.

Honestly it's objectionable, hateful, rude, and seems to be trolling black people.

Personal attack against gwphilly and 11KAP. Comments on peoples mental status are specifically prohibited by rule.

He is calling gwphilly and 11KAP irrational which is a violation of the personal attack rule as written:

And Andyadhi01 and Hubbard53 in SFO....

We are already busy with EdwardA and KUChief25 amongst others, so we just told you to chill. But if you won't chill we shall get busy on your ass at a future date.

SJNative is next up though. Better run to CA general and tell him to watch out.
You also realize that discussing moderation is also against the TOS right?

So, you may have had a king and queen of city-states, which were common among the Yoruba, who are largely in SW Nigeria and nearby countries currently, for an example. perhaps we may need to step out of our current mindsets when viewing this subject and think of how areas of Africa were governed at that time.
Valid point! You can't impose modern day lense on past completely or resort to the same myopia you are using to analyze another or greater body of context etc!

Good point ckhthankgod!
