Over here the roads turn red (sometimes an entire lane) because someone hits an animal and leaves it in the road, and then scavengers get hit too.

Sometimes you can't find the animal after you hit it. They're like ninja of death.
I've seen those red roads, though, and that takes a lot of blood in a short period of time.

I do not like most of the ways they do it.. the slaugthering.
but else its not good to let blood flow like that... everywhere...
Its a hazard for the people and things around...
Suddenly many became sick days after because of contact to such blood (and if having open wounds...shit)...

This is the part where, instead of making fun of people for having animal sacrifice in their religion and shaming less-developed people and areas of the world for their poor infrastructure, you should realize that this is a news story in our culture because we consider ourselves superior and feed upon the plight of the rest of the world - both emotionally and literally. I can only think that you shared it because you wanted to participate in that felt superiority and gain points with friends. This is how the news media works, and how it controls us.


Right, because we don't get stories about the rivers of lead in Flint, Michigan...

Tinfoil hats off, people. There's dumb shit happening in cities all over the world and the news likes to tell us all about it.


and rivers of lead was gross too lol


I don't understand why all of a sudden im a supremacist now lol

this is more like, I didn't think twice about the animal sacrifice but of all of the blood in the streets, would you want to wade through that? no

Given it's the sewage/drainage system overflowing due to floods, I'd say the blood is not the most disturbing thing you would be wading through.

Not sure that their being Muslim is pertinent, but he's not actually *wrong*, the blood *does* make good fertilizer (or, for that matter, is extremely nutritious, but the bloodletting is part of butchering an animal in accordance with halal preparation).

That said, I'm not sure why they chose the word "sacrifice", which conjures up imagery of killing an animal and burning or otherwise disposing of it's corpse in such a way that a) wastes the meat, and b) is supposed to appease a god.

This wasn't a "sacrifice" in the normal notion of a classical Greco-Roman or pagan sacrifice, it was just a lot of animals slaughtered on the same day for a major feast day. Unsanitary? Sure. Indication of some dark murderous ritual? Yeah, no.

But I have a hard time being *too* critical on foxnews on this one; they were quite upfront about the use of the animals for feasts involving alms for the poor. If foxnews was as deliberately misleading as some would have you believe, they could have just said "Muslims sacrifice thousands of animals for religious festival" and left it at that, and it would have been completely honest, but still carried negative implication.

*shrug*

Lol - I specifically said in my response to runec that you're not a supremacist, redokami. That doesn't mean the ideas you hold don't ultimately come from a racist ideology.

I refer you back to one of my previous comments; you seem not to understand it:


auroraloose wrote:

Your turn, redokami and Xxanthar: I highly doubt that this Dhaka story came from anything other than a desire by the Western media to take advantage of Orientalism to get publicity. The article is literally called, "Animal sacrifices turn Dhaka streets into rivers of blood"; how loaded of a statement can you make? Put a lot more simply, the media knows that we in the West find Islam and Bangladesh weird and inferior, and people always like to think of themselves as superior. So it gives us stories like this, so we can feel good about ourselves. And, as humans do, we talk about it and perpetuate it with our friends in order to share that good feeling. So much of internet conversations are like this. And the fact is, it's very unlikely that you saw this story and posted it solely because you thought the "rivers of blood" sounded gross, redokami. Rather, the whole scenario of media influence, cultural superiority, and virtue signaling worked itself upon you - unawares or not. Because you're a human, and can't help it. This is why awareness campaigns are so important, and why the problem isn't that tons of people are actually full-on evil racists but rather that they don't understand themselves.



What you need to do is demonstrate to me that your thinking here was not, in fact, worked upon by media influence, cultural superiority and virtue signaling. Because it looks exactly like that's what happened.

it seems to meyou are the one who does not understand, someone can show a article simply because they think it is gross

this article is about streets filled with blood
that is gross
media "influence" has nothing to do with what I think is gross , millions of people think blood is gross, dear arceus


quote "the media knows that we in the West find Islam and Bangladesh weird and inferior, and people always like to think of themselves as superior. So it gives us stories like this, so we can feel good about ourselves. And, as humans do, we talk about it and perpetuate it with our friends in order to share that good feeling.


that may be true for others
again,read what I stated before I don't give a single shit that it was animal sacrifice, im not fucking petitioning to make them stop , I don't think its weird I know its part of some cultures

I

think

unsanitary

Well, at least they still use the meat. But that's kind of rude to other people who are forced to walk through bloody water.

edit: no, no, no. I shouldn't just be snarky. Instead, here is some data for context.

The most populous independent city in the state of Virginia is Virginia Beach. The metropolitan area of Viriginia Beach has a population of approximately 2 million people, as of the 2010 census. Virginia Beach has a total area of 497 square miles.

The city of Dhaka, Bangladesh has a population of roughly 10 million. Dhaka has a total area of 102 square miles.

Dhaka has five times the population of your state's biggest city, crammed into about 1/5th of the space. It is also in the middle of its monsoon season, which puts a great deal of pressure on its drainage & sewage infrastructure. Consquently it overflowed in the middle of an Islamic religious festival.

There are many lessons you could draw from this article. I see it as an illustration of the need for infrastructure spending to match the needs of the populace, and regulatory agencies to monitor the conditions of livestock and the factories, farms and stores where they're turned into food. You saw it as an opportunity to share a super gross article after pinning on the word 'Islamic' that doesn't even appear in the original headline. The interesting thing to me is that the article also makes it very clear this happened because the monsoons overwhelmed the sewer system.

And yet that's not how you framed it. Why did you frame it that way, OP? You needn't answer in the thread. Knowledge is easily accquired online these days, but Wisdom must be cultivated within the self. Namaste.
