  1. I don't hate Asians. I also don't believe it is in their genes to be better at math. Everyone is a product of their environment. Why are Asians better at math per that article? I was adopted and recently met my biological father, aunts, uncles and grandfather. I look like them, but I am nothing like them, because I was not raised by them. I am a product of my environment. Maybe if we taught our kids math the way Asians do... Everyone does not fit in the box that stereotypes portray. Calling me names does not bother me. Simply because you are nothing to me. You are rigid in your beliefs and blanket statements, that is your cross to bear. Later
  2. I read that article not that Asians are genetically better at math but that they taught better... "“We invented the Singapore math where students learn it in a way that is easier to grasp intuitively, easier to remember and easier to apply. The method is so different from what I learned in school that teachers tell parents NOT to teach the students. It is a method used in top schools in the US,” Ang tells SciDev.Net. Aside from the Singapore math method, quality of teaching comes into play. Ang adds: “I will not say that we have the best people being trained and hired as teachers. But we have, for example, made it a requirement to have a degree to teach in high schools.” Another factor for Singapore’s superior performance, perhaps, is its culture of achievers. “There is a national social stress on education. Most students have after-school tuition. Getting a bottom grade is embarrassing. The [government] ministers have got good grades from kindergarten. Schools are rewarded for good academic performance,” Ang says.

To say no race is better than another is great, but to then follow with blanket statement about races comes across as portraying racial stereotypes and that is racist. rac·ist /ˈrāsəst/ Learn to pronounce noun noun: racist; plural noun: racists 1. a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another. adjective adjective: racist 1. showing or feeling discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or believing that a particular race is superior to another. Making blanket statements that blacks are better as basketball or Asians are better at math are racist statements as not all things are equal, except for human beings.

  5. I was at this one. Watching the faces of Bucs fans melt as Steve busted that run was awesome.
  6. I agree to a certain extent. Biggest problem with the Heavyweight division is that there are other avenues/sports for these athletes to make money. Boxing just isn't as lucrative as it used to be. I hate this fact, but it's true. Looking forward to a Wilder/Fury rematch, if Wilder can get past Ortiz a second time. First time wasn't easy. I appreciate that Wilder has at least shown some heart in the ring. Can't say that about Joshua as Ruiz had no problem taking it from him. Ruiz showed plenty of heart getting off the mat and then taking it to Joshua.
  7. I guess that's why they call him Stabby! https://i.imgur.com/S1xqHnZ.mp4

  10. Thread title needs to be changed to... "OFFICIAL Biden thread, since it looks like he's getting in, and under Trump's skin"
  11. This should help #22 also. Gonna be tough to load up on the run with Davis, Brown, Humphries and Walker spreading the field.
  12. Wonder if Hill has "Get away from the cops speed".
  13. I suspect JRob already has his eye on someone that did not get drafted on day one and will move up to get him unless available at 51. If not, move down to get more picks.
