You seemed to have called him out. The use of the word race is more convenient even as it is less accurate.

   [blak-meyl] Show IPA
noun 1. any payment extorted by intimidation, as by threats of injurious revelations or accusations.

2. the extortion of such payment: He confessed rather than suffer the dishonor of blackmail.

3. a tribute formerly exacted in the north of England and in Scotland by freebooting chiefs for protection from pillage.

No, I'm hoping that we can have less disruptions to interesting discussions by posters hoping to obfuscate that their position is built on sand by indulging in unnecessary minutia of terminology instead of engaging in proper debate.

I'm not expecting any money from 'Historum' or any members thereof.

I'll let you know. Any other contradictory positions on the subject?

If you may like to so obsessively derail your own nice thread, why should anyone care?

Guess everyone here remembers & is well aware that Antisemitism (and by extension any other form of Racial discrimination) might always be considered against the rules of Historum, right?

Exactly who said anyone in particular may be racially discriminating at all against anyone else in particular?

Your turn.


PS: BTW, any other elementary question even remotely related with the OP?
