    Another sardonic thread to ruffle the feathers of those particular birds who flock together icon_smile.gif :

    What if u woke up tomorrow & u became & looked like everything u despise?.....

    For example, say ur a hot built white (any mien) guy & u just called a black (any mien) guy ugly & fat, & the next day u wake up & turned into that black (any mien) guy u called ugly & fat. What would u do if u became that person u dislike, that person u see & pass by on the street that u think to urself never would u want to be him? What if u turned into that person the next day, how would u react: to have their skin, their body, their face?.....Yes, it's somewhat Kafkaesque.....

    **How about I wake up to find myself..Shallow, empty, lonely,unloved and with the personality and I.Q. of a maxi pad..

    To me this is the ultimate low!

    ** Or I find myself awake in the future.. where R.J. is so advanced ..I could "Click To Taze" a user??

    That would make me happy. icon_biggrin.gif

    No u didn't, otherwise u wouldnt be inflamed. U'd be like, "O, I get it. He's trying to make those who think they feel superior see what it's like to be in the shoes of someone they see inferior."

    I would turn into a thoughtless, selfish, egotistical jerk...so I obviously wouldn't care. I'm confused by your parentieticals, though: what is a "white (any race) guy".

    lol, wut?

    Bigot: "Bigotry is the state of mind of a bigot: someone who, as a result of their prejudices, treats other people with hatred, contempt, or intolerance on the basis of a person's ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic status, or other characteristics."

    I would think then, that if you became who you insulted you would either become self loathing or gain empathy.

    It's not that hard guys. What if ur one of the ones on RJ who only prefer hot white guys & u dismiss anyone who isn't a hot white guy & then u personified (put urself in their shoes) the one u just dismissed?

    I always write on all these race threads when someone in the preferred majority dismisses someone in the marginalized minority, "If the shoe was on the other foot, u'd be the first to bitch!" Now I've made a thread out of it.

    Wonder how many of the ones who were so vocal on the other race threads who dismissed anything the unpreferred said will respond?....

    The funny thing is so many hot, young, white guys are actually going to have that happen to them. They're going to wake up and discover they've become the old, not hot, white guy they despise.

    Guess there won't be much response from those this thread was intended cause who's gonna admit that they have a narrow skewed worldview?....

    Might as well make it into an Imelda Marcos thread icon_smile.gif ....

    How many shoes did she own?! I think Princess Di rivaled her shoe collection. But of course no one made mention of that cause she didn't rule a Banana Republic.

    Nope, u can't have that many shoes when ur peeples are starving, sorry.

    Didn't Imelda donate all them shoes to charity? Any drag queens with size 6 feet?!....

    Think she had enough shoes to donate, a pair for every Filipina working the rice fields.....

    Remember that year her over the top shoe collection made headlines, we hung thrift store bought women's shoes all over the ceiling at Woody's here in Philly where I bartended.

    I would wake up a truly repressed, celibate, bigoted so-called Christian minister, with a white sheet with eyeholes hanging on the back of the door of my dingy room. And I hope I'd have the presence of mind to drink rat poison.

    I read somewhere that Nell Carter when she died had more shoes than Imelda Marcos when she was alive.

    I'd be a successful, happy, good looking, popular, adored by the majority, productive, funny winner, who was pure evil.

    Aristoshark saidI would turn into a kind, thoughtful, considerate and un-shallow man. I would be nice to old ladies, be positive and uplifting, and I would never smack anyone who irritated me, because I would not be capable of being irritated.

    OMG, I'd be Ned Flanders.


    Fuck, I'd use ur cane & smack as many irritating bastards as I can! icon_smile.gif

    I would wake up as someone who can't put a coherent thought on the page, and can't make full use of the alphabet and rules of grammar. How sad I will be.
