Do you mind not stalking me round the forums, it's rather creepy.

But anyway, you will note that part of my experience of American college experience was gleaned from an American Houston-based friend, based on, you know, his anecdotes about actual real life. And he was not the exaggerating type, not even remotely. I have personally witnessed boozed-up US college students in nightclubs in Chicago and Vegas.

Yes. But see, the problem with that is that, of course, I said absolutely nothing of the sort.

Nicki's current single, in case Financeguy hasn't heard it

Nicki Minaj - Starships (Explicit) - YouTube

I mean, my urge to kill rises when I hear this song, but not because it sends my testosterone through the roof.

I had to go all the way back to 10 minutes ago and down one thread... you're right, I'm stalking you.

It's right there in print. I'd quote you but you'd accuse me of stalking...

Why is it that people believe their posts disappear after a few days?

I am not of course, attempting to "blame" the murder on Nicky Minaj or on her concert. That would be absurd and only a fool would think I said anything of the sort.

No, what I am attempting to describe is a culture, an atmosphere that associates itself with some of these types of acts, or at least some of their fans.

I thought you were blaming Obama

Not specifically.

"Obamanation" is a catch-all term to describe the political philosophy whereby whitey is to blame for everything.

Some of you on the forum ascribe to it, given your predilection to put forward all kinds of excuses on behalf of various hoodlums (e.g. the thread about the former gang member on death row some years ago, I can't remember his name but it was quite a long thread).

Laci Peterson? Natalee Holloway? Probably didn't get much coverage outside of the US, but if you just Google "missing white woman syndrome" you'll quickly catch on to what the Obamanation mainstream media does.

I know all about that case, but cripes, it was, what, nearly half a century ago. And most of his actual victims were white, no?

Patrice O'neal - Value Of A Pretty White Woman - YouTube

The fact that financeguy thinks the US media doesn't care about missing white girls is fucking hilarious and just shows how out of touch he actually is

Is this the thread you're talking about?

Natalee Holloway suspect arrested again for suspected murder

Ya, no interest from the mainstream media on this one
