Just a question to see who is racist. Let's imagine that you have 2 groups of kids that need heart transplants or they will die. Each group has 100 children in it. That is 100 children in need of a transplant in group A and 100 in group B. Let's say that there are only 100 hearts available for transplant. The kids in group a all have a 80% chance of surviving the heart transplant, the kids in group b have a 20% chance of survival.

Oh one more thing, coincidentally all the kids in group A are white, and all the kids in group B are black, How would you divide up the hearts for transplant? If you are black maybe reverse it so all the kids in group a are black. Just whoever you are make the appropriate substitutions.

I would give the transplants all to group A by the way. For some reason I get the feeling that liberals as a group are less logical people and would divide the heart transplants evenly between groups. I just want to aee if that theory pans out.

I would choose white without a doubt.

This is the obvious choice. Anybody who actually values human life would do the same.

Only the most radical liberals would claim that the value of diversity outweighs the value of human life.

I assume that moderate liberals would choose group a, but i think moderate liberals only make up half of them, especially with the age demographic on this site.

I also think this being an on paper decision makes it easier, in real life I bet we'd see more people evenly spreading the heart transplants out.

I had a feeling. What if all the whites were Bernie Sanders supporters and 99 blacks were hillary supporters but one of them was a trump supporter?

Given the current state of social media, you're probably right. People have an unfortunate tendency to side with the radical, diversity-worshiping faction of the left in order to save their own reputations.

There is a certain faction of the right that is like that, that I really hate. For example the flag worshippers and boot lickers, also the ones that protested when that black teacher said, that most on campus violence was from white males. Why the hell would any conservative crucify her for being honest when they are so often crucified for being honest?

I know, it is so racist to put America firat instead of being a b1tch to the global community.

These idiots say most other countries want Hillary to win, which is a strike against her, but they think it is a strike against Trump.

Their desperation knows no bounds when it comes to attacking Trump. The impression I get from my conversations with anti-Trumpers is that most of them don't even know what his policies are... either out of willful ignorance or actual stupidity.

these anti-farlefty threads are making the forums boring. There are more of them than farlefty posts at this point.

They don't it is stupid criticisms, such as when he told a pretty news journalist she souldn't have been there without her looks.

Liberals readily admit that the media often gives girls unrealistic expectations of beauty and that the media is more facorable towards pretty people. This is why you never hear of ugly chicks being kidnapped, and yet when Trump points out that these unrealistic expectations of beauty give pretty girls a better chance to gain a career in journalism, liberals are outraged.

Well that's to be expected, considering that progressive liberalism has basically devolved into an outrage porn circlejerk, lol

It does seem like the forum is leaning too far right lately, which sucks for me because I like my world view challenged. I am genuinely curious gow certain liberals answer this though, more the SJW brand of liberals than anything

Me too, you know even without adding in race, about 27% of people choose to split the hearts evenly among group A and B?

Group A. The situation has nothing to do with race and everything to do with basic pragmatism (or utilitarianism).

I know, but even without race added abput 27% choose to split the hearts evenly between groups. I think in real life if this scenario popped up, nobody would buy the utilitarian argument though. Don't you think the media and twittersphere would paint the decision as racist?
