Reapers being white people and Batarians being AL-Qaeda LMAO.

Guess from this prospective the Mexican pissed Al Qaeda off by destroying their star system. Hey guess AL Qaeda had weapons of massive destruction after all. Bush was right all along.

The Hanar are always polite when speaking - I take it the person who wrote this has never been to France or intereacted with any French people lol

The only reason Shephard is known as "loco" is because the guy who game him that nickname as an offhand joke was Mexican.

Sounds to me like the author was Peurto Rican, as he himself seems to continuously note that PR's hate people from the Dominican. He also doesn't seem to know his history, as white people definitely weren't the first people to have slaves, and as far as I can tell Africans aren't extinct either, you'd think he would have said "Mayans" for the Protheans.

@giggman just as much as French is a race

Article clearly states "types of people" which is not limited to race, nationality, political alignment or soda preference.

Reapers part made me LMFAO. Will probably get a lot of disagrees but idc. LMFAO

Prothean part is right on the spot.
pixelsword  +   1297d ago
I read it... it was meh; I read much funnier stuff, maybe because if he didn't try to blame others for his own thoughts it might have been funnier (it just smacks of weak-mindedness) but whatever.

Ironically, I do agree about the part about the Protheans because before slavery the African Americans are most related to the group of Moorish Hebrews which ruled Europe for 500 years; just like the Protheans had a galactic empire.

Just remember that without support from the French the USA would probably have remained a British colony.
mynameisEvil  +   1297d ago
Please explain how. I must've missed that little bit in my history classes throughout school, but I don't remember the French really doing anything with the US.

Don't misinterpret me, please. I'm not being a smart-ass, I'm legitimately asking you to explain because I don't remember the French helping.
kneon  +   1297d ago
Their main assistance came from their navy, providing supplies and harassing the British ships.

They did also land troops but I don't recall if there were significant numbers of French ground troops.

But perhaps their biggest contribution was as a result of being one of, if not the first country to recognize the US independence in 1778. There was a US-French treaty signed that basically said they would help each other out against the British, I can't remember the details. Shortly after that the British declared war on France forcing them to split resources between two wars.

Had the British been able to focus solely on the US and had the US not had the assistance of France it could have turned out very differently. At a minimum it would have gone on much longer.

Tired of white people always being "those slavers" by everybody's definition when, in fact, most black slaves were sold to us BY OTHER BLACKS! Slavery and warfare STILL run rampant overseas. Get with the times, people! You can't always blame the white guys!
InTheLab  +   1298d ago
Whites have only had it bad for what, the last 20 years? Prior to that, they got away with some of history's worst atrocities. What's 20 years of white guilt compared to hundreds of years of f***ery?
Lord_Sloth  +   1298d ago
I never f***ed with anybody and holding grudges for actions that happened before you were born against people who also weren't born is very stupid.

Irish and Scotish are whites and look at all the s*** England gave them! Every race has spent some trouble with slavery and being dominated by another country.

I have no guilt for I've done nothing wrong. Why should I be held accountable and made the target for something like this?
MaxXAttaxX  +   1298d ago
It's 2012.

It's a stereotype we deserve, along with many others. IMO people that are offended by stuff like this are the problem, have a sense of humor. Do you get mad every time a black comedian cracks white jokes?

Sloth, if it makes you feel any better, there was once a time where black people held Jewish/white people as slaves in Egypt.

humbleopinion  +   1297d ago
Speaking of Jews, I was expecting the article to compare them to the Quarians, given how they were expelled and lived in exile for thousands of years, keeping their tradition and wishing to get back to their original home. But I guess that doesn't let the writer use the Shylock punchline.
specialguest  +   1297d ago
Get your facts straight and do some research
The Hebrew/Israelite during the time of enslavement by Egyptians were not "white". This is fact. Seriously, do some research.

Fylus  +   1297d ago
@Specialguest, I know they were actually black. I didn't however figure Sloth would know that; in fact, very VERY few people know it what with Hollywood films and such telling them that the original Hebrews of that time were white.

I only said what I said as kind of a joke argument to Sloth's comment.

No need to get over-offended.

The Egyptians enslaved the Nubians. Seriusly dude if your trying to prove a point have some historical fact in it.

@JRoyale, the Egyptians only temporarily enslaved the Nubians. And though there is no hard evidence besides the Bible that the Jews were enslaved by Egyptians, there is also no hard evidence disproving it either.

InTheLab  +   1298d ago
Don't know why you're taking what's meant to be a joke so seriously. Lighten up dude. No one is blaming you for eliminating Native Americans, 400 years of slavery in America, Jim Crow and Separate but Equal, Apartheid, the Holocaust, and the persistent effects on the descendants of these events.

No one is blaming you.

As for your other point about things that happened before I was born....Some pretty foul incidents happened during my lifetime and I'm only 31. While not as bad as something like slavery or the Holocaust, some of the things I've experienced growing up in one of the most racist state in the US (MI)shaped my views on race for the worst. It wasn't until I started hanging around other races that I realized we're all just people and our actions are our own. I don't blame you for beating up Rodney King and hopefully, you don't blame me for stabbing Nicole Brown Simpson.

At the same time, we can't allow ourselves to forget what's happened throughout history. Speaking of history, you are correct in that most Africans were sold into slavery by their leadership. I'm sure they knew all about the 3 month boat ride to the Americas that was responsible for the death of millions of Africans. Traders would often dump "excess" cargo overboard to avoid heavy taxes, or dumping slaves that were too sickly from sleeping in piss and shit for months overboard and counting them as a loss. Surprising what gets left out of history books nowadays.
ShinMaster  +   1298d ago
Nice list. Careful though, it made you sound passive aggressive.
Anyway, almost all of that is part of American history. Not all white people are American. So I guess this only applies to a fraction.

Just remember that black people wouldn't have progressed to where they are now without white people trollololololol

Seriously though, not saying we should forget or ignore the past, but I find it rather regressive to point out and blame races INSTEAD of the individuals solely responsible for those acts.

it figures you're getting disagrees for speaking the truth. lets face it, most people today just aren't smart enough to know their history.

even with google at their finger-tips, they'd rather just be ignorant.

African chiefs would trade guns for their own people, for example.

Ironic, considering your statement above about democrats. Republicans are just as bad, if not worse. The more you really look at the situation, the more both parties seem alike. They are two sides of the same wooden nickel. Divide and conquer.

mynameisEvil  +   1297d ago
Yeah, it makes you think, doesn't it? Tribes in Africa would infiltrate other tribes, steal their people, then sell them. But who do the black people target when they feel like we owe them something? Not the people that sold them in the first place, no... the whites.

Oh, and let's not forget that there were black slave-owners that owned black slaves. Oh, and here's a little known fact: THERE WERE WHITE SLAVES, TOO.

It's pathetic that, in today's society, we're still holding grudges about things that happened years before the vast majority of us were born. As John Marston said, "People don't forget. Nothing gets forgiven." (Well, people 'forget' what coincidentally degrades their agenda).

As for the author talking about how white people are apparently just more racist than others, well, that's just stupid. Every race has a group of racists. There's racists anywhere and everywhere of every kind. Though, the media would like you to think that white people are just born and bred to be these massive racists. It's revolting that so many lies are told are so many people just blindly believe them

*sigh* I hate today's world... Seemingly nobody can spend 10 minutes a day just... thinking about things. It's amazing how much can be realized by using critical thinking skills.

EDIT: "It wasn't until I started hanging around other races that I realized we're all just people and our actions are our own." InTheLab, you are a smart individual. We ARE all our own selves and we alone are responsible for our actions, not our entire race.

@ Sloth

You kinda have the right idea, but the wrong peoples; it's understandable because you were probably taught by people who didn't have a good grasp of history themselves, but that's cool; who really has? Black-skinned people did indeed sold other black-skinned people, but they were not the same peoples.

The Black slavers you were referring to were actually Arabs. The most famous of the modern Arab slavers was nick-nammed "tippu tip" his real name was Hemedi bin Muhammad el Marjebi (I'm sure there's some more name lol) He was the most famous, but not the most ancient; as with the popular rise of Islam amongst Saracen slaves, Islam was carried by Saracen and Arab alike; and savaged through North Africa, destroying many Christian cities of people who wouldn't convert to Islam. The word "Fez" (the name of an Islamic hat) came from the Christian city called Fez in North Africa; the reason why a Fez is red is because the town was supposed to have been so thoroughly slaughtered that blood ran in the streets like a river and the Islamic invaders dipped their hats into the blood for some reason.

At any rate, conversions of African pagans, Christians, and Hebrews alike succeeded with varying success; most of it was to merely not get killed. You could tell a lot of it was not sincere as the development of "Moorish Chess" was played by Muslims and was strictly against the teachings of Islam (it is forbidden for Muslims to play Chess).

An interesting footnote: A Russian form of the word for black is pronounced "Arap".

That article is loaded with racist and national stereotypes, it's not funny it's just offensive.

If you disagree you're a racist- simple.
sjaakiejj  +   1297d ago
The article, for as far as I can see, has racial/national stereotypes for almost every human being on the planet. As such, it doesn't single out one race, and the article is not offensive or racist at all. It also contains a disclaimer at the start of the article, so if you have a problem with stereotypes, that's where you should've stopped reading:

"Also you can blame society for teaching me these stereotypes. Some of it’s humorous, some of it is not. We must all be able to laugh at ourselves and I mean no disrespect (meaning someone is probably going to be disrespected) "
ArronC07  +   1297d ago
No sorry, you can use the it offends everyone so therefore it's fair game defence. Your argument is lazy and intellectually bankrupt.
sjaakiejj  +   1297d ago
It's quite simple Arron, and a very valid argument. If everyone is treated as an equal, it's not discrimination, which is the case in this article. The author also acknowledges that everything after the disclaimer is purposely based on stereotypes, both racial and national.

If you can't laugh with stereotypes, that's your problem, but it's definitely not racist unless you fully support what you are saying. As such, saying "I hate black people" is racist, but making a simple joke like
"Q: Why is Stevey Wonder Smiling all the time?
A: He doesn't know he's black."
is fair game. You may not find it funny, but don't go around calling everyone who does a racist.

I'm Dutch myself, and I once saw a show which contained a show-reel of stereotypes, including one from the Netherlands. A man was seen engaging in a long phone conversation when the telemarketer promised him he'd save money. The Dutch stereotype there is that the Dutch are believed (according to the stereotype) to turn over every penny twice. It was one of the funniest things I've ever seen, and it's no different from other stereotypes about other races or nationalities. They can be used in one of three ways: Offensively, with an intend to hurt, Ignorantly, in which the person is unaware that the stereotype isn't true, or Jokingly, in which the person is aware that it's not true.

That is a good stereotype of America. There are a lot of people in America that think that way, but not all, thus it is a stereotype.
