Read better books

So this crazy White supremacist claimed that White people “own time” (ably rebutted by Tim Pool) and worse, “if time had a race it would be White.”

Which reminded me of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Chapter 7: A Mad Tea-Party:

Alice sighed wearily. `I think you might do something better with the time,’ she said, `than waste it in asking riddles that have no answers.’

`If you knew Time as well as I do,’ said the Hatter, `you wouldn’t talk about wasting IT. It’s HIM.’

`I don’t know what you mean,’ said Alice.

`Of course you don’t!’ the Hatter said, tossing his head contemptuously. `I dare say you never even spoke to Time!’

Besides, that is just an utterly absurd proposition, man – Time doesn’t look anything like White people. According to Orpheus this is how Chronos looks:

It arose from water and earth, a serpent with heads of a bull and lion grown upon it, and in the middle the face of a God, and it has wings upon its shoulders, and is called Ageless Chronos and Herakles. (Damascius, De Principiis 123)

For more on this contentious topic I direct you here.

In closing, I would just like to say keep your hate out of our cosmology. (Unless you are Empedokles.)

    That video doesn’t present the professor’s argument well. For everyone interested in what this person was trying to say, here is a link to an article about the claim that White people “own time”. I’m not agreeing nor disagreeing with the statement but I felt that intellectual integrity and honesty needs to be upheld by providing information on the issue so everyone can make educated interpretations of the claim

    • Edit: The person in the video reads the article. So I was incorrect in thinking that it didn’t present the argument. However, I will say that I wouldn’t blame another person if they made my mistake because the speaker doesn’t present the actual argument in question until five minutes in.

      I think he makes some good points but I feel that it’s not good practice to format the video the way he did

      • *grins* Good job. That’s the point I’m making with this and the previous post. Using proper framing or cherry-picking you can make a person seem to say whatever you want them to without necessarily resorting to lies.
