I may not follow politics much, but I do know that "white privilege" exists. It should be fairly obvious; for example, how often are white people racially profiled when compared to people of other races? It doesn't necessarily mean you have to feel guilty about your existence, just that you recognize that the advantages you have are there.

Thank you, it's nice to see that someone on here has some actual intelligence and common sense.

Vex, if you don't know a programming language, don't know the basics of calculus, have never read anything on quantum theory, or don't know how to rewire a house ... but can parrot victim-stoking bollocks on race politics, then your teachers should be hung, drawn, and quartered.

I could say the same thing about you and whoever you got your terrible attitude from.

There's no "victom-stoking" here, just common sense that your thick skull cannot comprehend. All that other stuff dosen't count for jack shit if you have a nasty attitude towards everyone, if you talk down to people like that, no one will give a rat's ass about whether you know calculus, programming language, quantum theory or any of that other crap.

Bragging about how much you know dosen't make you look any better, it just makes you sound even more pathetic.

Everybody stop being mean to each other.

Vexy, you know I've got your back, but this isn't a battle worth fighting.

NotHughGrant, you may not be Hugh Grant for real, but you'll always be Hugh Grant to me. Not real life dickish Hugh Grant. The bumbling but well-meaning and extremely English Hugh Grant of Nine Months and Love Actually.

I repeat: everybody stop being mean. I swear to god I will turn this car around.

Dang! My crappy hearing doesn't allow me to idenify most of the lyrics. I do dig the background chorus though.
