I'm transferring a comment over here, since I don't want Gabe adding unnecessary heat to a topic that's intended for believers who want to be civil. First, Gabe, I want you to spell out your theory about the perceived "laziness" of the South American and African people you've witnessed. Give us a list of definitions. Give us a list of premises and evidence that you use. Give us your conclusion, and the logical steps you used to arrive at it. Surprise us by doing something we haven't seen from countless pseudoscientists.
Gabe's transferred comment is below the fold, and contains evidence that he hasn't been paying attention to what we've been arguing.
I thought, as I was sitting here I would correct and try to teach the ignorant masses that seem to assemble here, something.
I remembered users here claiming that niggers in Africa and spicks in latin america are not lazy, even when I have first hand experience in this, they seem to say "you just saw someone sitting around, therefore you claim all to be lazy", which is rather ironic.
This was called, by our friend Freud, Self-projection. This is what you do, and this is how you act and cogitate, its not the rest of the world. I speak objectively when I refer to other people, especially in this context for obvious reason.
As I lived in both Africa and South America, I have not 'seen someone sitting around', no, I LIVED WITH THEM and EXPERIENCED how they are, by nature, lazy. It is very simple, most here have never travelled and will never travel because of lack of funds or fear or whatever it may be, so they simple repeat or use their own self-projected image of the world and how they want it to be.
No, if you go down here, where I am now, you EXPERIENCE the 'laziness', if you find educated and, if i may, more white people, you will note they know this as well, the people themselves do not pretend they are not lazy, THEY KNOW THEY ARE, I spoken to them about it.
This is not a "I seen someone sittng down on his break, therefore lazy" mantra scenario you seem to conjure up, excuses excuses it seems, no, this is from LIVING WITH THEM and EXPERIENCING their lifes and what they care about and how they relate to the world.
They are lazy, you should be, whats the word, Skeptic about someone claiming otherwise, maybe ask them if they lived together with these people, or even visited it? Maybe gone down to the Ghettos in america which we have ourself, spicks and niggers, sitting around, generally not 'working', and when they are, that is, they call it 'working', we call it robberies murder and rape, but that is what they consider 'work', thats how their monkey brothers in africa do it as well, mayben you should go to Congo or any other country in Africa, and see it yourself.
Rather then claiming people who have experienced it, to be false.
