      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Knowing what's best for poor people. So hot right now.

 

lots of nutrition experts (to stay on topic) agree about it too. Funny how that works. Are you going all post-modern relativist on us?

Word.

 

http://stuffwhitepeoplelike.com/2008/02/10/62-knowing-whats-best-for-poor-people/

 

"White people spend a lot of time of worrying about poor people. It takes up a pretty significant portion of their day.

 

They feel guilty and sad that poor people shop at Wal*Mart instead of Whole Foods, that they vote Republican instead of Democratic, that they go to Community College/get a job instead of studying art at a University.

 

It is a poorly guarded secret that, deep down, white people believe if given money and education that all poor people would be EXACTLY like them. In fact, the only reason that poor people make the choices they do is because they have not been given the means to make the right choices and care about the right things.

 

A great way to make white people feel good is to tell them about situations where poor people changed how they were doing things because they were given the ‘whiter’ option. “Back in my old town, people used to shop at Wal*Mart and then this non-profit organization came in and set up a special farmers co-op so that we could buy more local produce, and within two weeks the Wal*Mart shut down and we elected our first Democratic representative in 40 years.” White people will first ask which non-profit and are they hiring? After that, they will be filled with euphoria and will invite you to more parties to tell this story to their friends, so that they can feel great.

 

But it is ESSENTIAL that you reassert that poor people do not make decisions based on free will. That news could crush white people and their hope for the future."

Okay dude, open up your organic food co-op in my neighborhood, which ain't Capital Hill, offer a few courses on nutrition (maybe even have black people teach them so people come), close all the KFC's, and see how may people drive over to Aldi.

"Every year there are an estimated 76 million foodborne illnesses in the United States (26,000 cases for 100,000 inhabitants), 2 million in the United Kingdom (3,400 cases for 100,000 inhabitants) and 750,000 in France (1,220 cases for 100,000 inhabitants)."

it's not a problem specific to black communities and nobody claimed it was solely a problem of education that would be solved in short order. It has also to do with communities, therefore jobs, etc ..

My neighborhood IS black, and largely uneducated. And the problems are much bigger than nutrition.

of course, I agree. This is what I am saying. Entire communities have lost the knowledge of cooking regular meals due to being torn apart by economic hardship.

well, the definition of free-range seem to change which is unfortunate but knowing what's a battery chicken is much more critical to your health.

the only place i et tree chickens, in carolina, the wine options, if they existed at all, were generally restricted to "the kind that's warm" or "the kind that's in the fridge"

i suspect that there term refers to the occasional 18-wheeler i see blazing down i-5, chickens exposed to the slipstream, peeling off feathers 5 miles behind in great goddamn clouds? :)
