You should understand what I mean, if you were given a large sum of money, most people wouldn't donate any, or very much of it, especially if that person earned it through hard work.

I could easily blow through a million in a day lol.
#69 - xheavymetalx (02/07/2014) [-]
Just because "most people" wouldn't donate, doesn't make it right. Honestly, if I had the choice to save children's lives just by donating a fraction of my money that I wouldn't even use much of anyway, the answer is obvious.

I'd much rather use a million dollars to save lives or improve lives rather than on luxuries that don't actually do anything.
User avatar #73 - trolljunkusa (02/07/2014) [-]
Of course, it doesn't make it right to keep your money lol, I'm not saying that

But it's also not right to get mad at someone for not donating money they earned by working. Unless you're an arabic prince, you don't get rich by just sitting there. I would not want to donate a lot of my money to charity after spending my whole life trying to earn it. Just like you spend years writing a book, or making a painting, or developing a program. Most people (not everyone) aren't just going to give it away. They want to use it, and make money off it, and use that money on themselves to treat themselves for making that money

and generally, the only reason rich people donate money is for publicity. Unless of course you're bill fucking gates, or that investor dude who's really rich yet lives modestly.

#74 - xheavymetalx (02/07/2014) [-]
I remember hearing a quote that went something like "It is not a sin to live rich, but it is a sin to die rich".

In other words, sure you can buy that mansion and that car and all that useless crap. But if you plan on taking it underground with you when LIVE PEOPLE could use the help, that makes you the worst kind of person.
User avatar #75 - trolljunkusa (02/07/2014) [-]
Well you see this guy is donating his organs. Organs are worth more than that car. Throwing money at charities doesn't always help.
#139 - xheavymetalx (02/08/2014) [-]
No I agree with the guy in the content. I was just disagreeing with what you said about rich people doing "stupid things" with their money i.e. burying their car instead of giving it away.

Of course donating organs are more important cause they directly save lives. Money may or may not help depending on how the organization uses it.

However, it hard to deny that the european colonization was detrimental to their economy. Zimbabwe (i dont remember the name before that) was once the bread basket in the world and South Africa boasted one of the strongest economies and both nations were under direct British rule. I'm not saying this because I'm some racist guy, but if you are to look at the facts, Africa was at height of its power in modern history due to colonization.

quick question:

I've heard of Malcolm X, but I'm not anything about him other than he was big in racial equality. Although I heard he used violence against innocent whites, I'm not 100% sure that's true, or accurate
#237 - xheavymetalx (01/12/2014) [-]
Malcolm X did not advocate violence against innocent people. He only advocated it as a form of self-defense. As in, if you are getting attacked, it is your right to fight back. Refer to the quote in the picture.

He is often one of the more misunderstood people in American history. There were points in his life were he was really radical and said some pretty bad stuff (while with the Nation of Islam, which was kind of pulling his strings). However, after taking a pilgrimage to Mecca, he realized how profound racial harmony is. In Mecca, he met people of all skin colors and backgrounds, and since then, he identified racism as not just a black and white issue, but a universal issue.

One of my favorite quotes from him is "It's not a case of being a good or bad black or white person, it's a case of being a good or bad human being."

>The African continent was one of the richest in the world
>was
And America was a boondocks with a bunch of primitive Indians. Also, if you think that all Egyptians lived like pharaons on the pictures from your schoolbook, you're terribly wrong.
>The reason Africa is in such poverty right now is because Europe colonized it and left it not intact.
Yeah, inglorious barbarians brought culture, medicaments and supplies, left schools and hospitals. What a guile!
>Frederick Douglass and Malcolm X come to mind. And Toni Morrison
Lol, all three were Afro-Americans.

Agree with your point, but it's a bit of a stretch to call Frederick Douglass and Malcolm X African philosophers. They weren't African in the sense of the picture and more like activists or reformers.

well, in modern history Africa was so succesful because of the British and French colonization. Once they all pulled out Africa started going down the shitter with many war lords and dictators.

Yes but had Europe not intervened in African affairs in the first place, I highly doubt such a thing would have happened.

I don't say I share the pic's point of view (because of what you just stated, plus the Punic culture even when it was kind of erased was still alive in the people that surrounded the empire) but none of those philosophers are African. The picture asked for an African philosopher, not black.

I can't name a lot of them only two came tomy mind Amadou Hampaté Ba (who is more of an historian ) and Kocc Barma (senegalese philosopher.

Now do not forget that Africans favored oral communication and didn't have written langages. You were taught philosophy through tales and stories.
User avatar #91 - arandomanon (01/11/2014) [-]
As I said, I don't share the pic's point of view, it's just I couldn't come up with any African philosopher. I know Africans favored oral communication, which can be as good as written communication in certain situations.
Thanks for the contribution.
#94 - azery (01/11/2014) [-]
I understood that.
i just wanted to point out that African philisophers won't be very well known because the african philosophy exist through tales and stories passed down from elders to young ones. So basically every elder was considered a wise man / philosopher in africa because they were responsible of teaching thoses stories to the youngsters.

Most mentally insane people getting a hold of firearms is most often by stealing them from family members (such as Adam Lanza). And as far as kids getting a hold of firearms and hurting themselves, it is largely due to parents leaving firearms out in the open or other irresponsible actions. Personally, I keep all my firearms locked in a safe which removes the possibility of anyone but myself getting a hold of them.

"Owning a gun without background checks or showing ID: Perfectly fine"

You might want to read up on your laws before you start spouting shit.
#437 - xheavymetalx (01/07/2014) [-]
Alright, it was a bit of an exaggeration. But the point I was trying to make is that despite supposed background checks, mentally unstable people (i.e. the type of people that shoot shit up) STILL get their hands on guns and commit massacres.

No one's saying we should burn all guns and never have any. It's just that if guns are to be sold and there are to be background checks/proficiency tests, you should at least make sure they work.

#156 - legomant (01/06/2014) [-]
In order to purchase a firearm from a dealer it is required you go through a background check, even when buying from gun shows. The exception being those with a CCL in states such as Texas which allows you to bypass a background check only because you are required to pass one to get the licence in the first place. Even when buying from private parties you would still have to show ID, so it is virtually impossible to buy a firearm in the US without showing some form of ID and most purchases go through a NICS check anyways.
#159 - xheavymetalx (01/06/2014) [-]
But just because the paperwork goes through, doesn't mean the system is effective. There are many cases were mentally insane people get access to legally purchased firearms. Not to mention many kids get ahold of them and accidentally shoot someone (it happens more than you'd expect).

Actually, most people are already required to get a background check in most locations. You are required to wait for certain weapons, some are illegal anyway, and you also can't pick one up from a gun show like they claim you can. In order to do that you need a concealed carry permit which requires, you guessed it, a background check.
