    I talk to my chinese overlords in sing song. Nobody has ever complained.
    I talk to my immigrant family members in broken english.
    It is what they use.
    It is what they understand.
    The ultimate goal is not for you to have the same vocabulary as me.
    The ultimate goal is communication.
    I need to get the job done.
    If I explain the situation using terms the other does not use on a regular basis I leave much open to interpretation.
    Interpretation is always bad.

    I have been accused of being 'racist' for doing this. Others have accused me of doing it to belittle them. This only happens when I do it with immigrants who don't know the vocab very well. I make things simple for them not because they are simple people but because they are not experienced with our culture and constantly end up in trouble due to the loss of nuance.
    Eventually, those very people who thought I was fucking with them learned to love the fact that I spoke to them in their language.

    Patronizing is a tricky word. Look at the quote in the story... "they patronize minorities stereotyped as lower status and less competent,”.
    To patronize means to support. A patron needs nothing and so he can give freely.
    When you speak to a person at their level you are giving them the support they may need in order to fully express their needs.
    We used to be taught that coming down to another's level is the right way of approaching them.
    The media tried to use the word patronize in the way they have been doing for years. Which is what the media does best, distort language so that the people need the media to explain things to them. That is confusion and chaos.

    When you go to Taco Bell you are a patron.
    You are not there to belittle Taco Bell.
    You know Taco Bell is shitty food though.
    And that the staff is probably going to be immigrant, minority, or otherwise undereducated working poor.
    Even if the place is not named Tyrone Bell.
    It is patronizing to not patronize them.
    And if you patronize their establishment then you are a patron.
    They are serving you.
    That is why at many establishments where someone is serving you and that person is a male and happy will call you 'boss'.
    You are not his boss.
    But he will call you boss.
    The same way in Mexico they would call you patron.
    Even if you don't know a thing about agave.

    I think this entire fight about who is more racist and patronizing is a bit condescending of the level of emotional intelligence of the American people.
    No wait, on second thought it is perfectly apt.

    you don’t know shit about me
    ive donated time and money to the special olympics and other charities that help children
    i never said shit about taxes or welfare, but since you asked...
    both would work well if government wasn’t corrupt
    but when literally everyone above city council is in someone else’s pocket, then the system is flawed
    remember when the california lotto first came out and “they” swore 19% would go to education?
    what about social security?
    must be easy for mindless lemmings like you to wander through life thinking everything is great
    fuck prayer in school, the pledge of allegiance and whatever else “they” tell you is evil
    do whatever rachel maddow or those other msnbc hacks tell you
    and keep telling yourself hillary wouldn’t have us at war right now
    idiot

    That is exactly how our conversations go.
    The only language that exists is inflection, tone, face, hand movements... all that and the desire to want to communicate can get you to one word shared by both people which then gets you to two then 4 then 16 then 72 and you can now communicate much better than you can with 90% of the people that speak your own language but don't know how to communicate.

    That is such a fantastic show.
    And whats his face is such a great writer.
    Man I'm gonna go watch that clip again.
    Its been so long since I've watched Deadwood that I never realized that how we communicate at work is a lot like how Al and Wu talk.

    Wu was not picking up everything Al was saying but he got the big picture until Al fucked up in the way he said juice. He inadvertently caused a negative emotional reaction in Wu which now become his big picture. Everything else Al had said had been wiped from the front of Wu's mind.
    As soon as Al was able to ease his concerns he was quickly back on board.

    The funny thing about Wu is that it is how you say the first part of Go'on in Mandarin. Mandarins are the enemy of the Goons from Canton in the south.
    And in Cantonese means 'song of the south' in a literal way more like sound of the Wu. Which simply means the sound made by the southern rebel warriors who fought the evil Mandarin bureaucrats of the northern Manchurian Mongols.
    They lost and were forced to wear long hair and braids like a girl. A Goon would face instant death penalty if he cut his hair.

    Huang Die!

    Paris is in flames right now, looks like the people are tired of the globalism and climate change agenda. Seen a video where the cops removed their helmets to stand with the rioters.

    Whatcha gonna do Macron?

    The American left wants to follow in Europes footsteps, they can't show the public what it leads to.

    Democracy is the gateway drug that splits a nation into two halves which divide themselves into Socialism, Communism, Fascism and Ecumenism.

    Yes..let's embrace and follow the European template. The place where WWI and WWII, Facism, Nazism, Socialism, Communism, and other isms started, took form and have left major portions of that continent a smoldering pile of rubble.
    Not saying we don't need some major tweaking, but following Europe's example, isn't the path to take...

    Denmark will force 'unwanted' migrants onto an island currently used to research diseased animals

    11:06 a.m.
    Denmark can't seem to legally ditch its most "unwanted" migrants. So it's settling for pushing them onto a tiny, remote island currently used for researching and then cremating diseased animals.

    The country's government and Danish People's Party, both on the political right, announced a new purpose for the 17-acre Lindholm Island on Friday. It'll be the new home of up to 100 "foreigners who have been convicted of crimes and rejected asylum seekers" who legally can't return home, The New York Timeswrites.

    The island is currently used for "researching contagious animal diseases" and "lies about two miles from the nearest shore," the Times writes. Two intentionally "cumbersome and expensive" ferries — one of which is literally called "Virus" — will operate to and from the mainland infrequently throughout the day. But migrants "must stay at the departure center at night," Denmark's finance minister said, per Danish paper The Local. He then insisted migrants "will not be imprisoned," just monitored by police "around the clock." The People's Party also tweeted out this cute animation showing where migrants will go "until we can get rid of them."

    my Swede friends say its a fucking powder keg like we have no idea
    since its hard to even get a blip of it in our media or theirs people think its all kosher
    reporters get thrown in jail for saying anything negative about migrants
    and like BDK posted they think making more laws will make it go away
