I would have to say that the East Coast has more 'Russian' restaurants, overall.

And the 1700s strike again. man people must have been bored outta their skulls back then. Ya think dying of dysentery and tomahawks to the back of the head would be entertainment enough but nope.

She made a mistake, embarrassed herself and deleted the tweet in said embarrassment. She should likewise post a correction. However, leaping from a hashtag to "burn the restaurant down and kill the occupants" is soccer mom level hysteria even for you guys.

You repeatedly note she's a civil rights lawyer but can't figure out what a civil rights lawyer might do when faced with what she thinks is an issue of civil rights? -.-

Don't know about you mate but in the CAF I was taught to make damn sure that I had a valid target in my sights before pulling the trigger.

Actually, it was an insanely racist German dude in the 1700s writing on why everyone else except white people sucked that gave us the prevailing term. All things considered it might be a bit farked up that we still use it.

The mythology behind the landing place of Noah's Ark is older than that and ties in with a number of collective European beliefs ( Christian and non-Christian ) about white people originating from that area.

I'm not sure Twitter and basic firearm safety have anything in common. Even if they, perhaps, should.

My point is if your words can influence even a single person you should be careful about how and when you use them. Places like Twitter have the potential to influence much more then a single person. So people in her position should make sure that such a bold statement actually needs to be made before going off half cocked like some teenager getting some action for the first time.

Yes, there is mythology across multiple religions and multiple cultural lineages about that region being the origin of the "white race".

Do you think perhaps there might be a *reason* for such wide-spread mythology?

Like, perhaps... that it is historically correct? Studies of the divergence of indo-european language, the dispersal of technologies and distinct art items, and archeological record all seem to concur that the earliest populations of racially distinct "caucasoids" is, in fact, from this region (though likely somewhat north of the mountain ranges themselves).

Dismissing it as a "hur dur derp, stupid bible says this and I'm a racist, so I'm just going to make fallacious claims" moment is stupid. Even in the 1700s, they had access to good records of Greek and Roman literature that referenced the migration of peoples from the Caucasus to Europe.

Nothing in subsequent scientific inquiry has ever found anything that significantly differs on the epicenter of the caucasian genetic diaspora.

We do breed like rabbits (as any poor people do) but we also kill each other just as fast...being of Serbian decent. During the war the Croatians killed us with the help of some Germans. Later in the 90s we killed them right back.....endless cycle that goes back for centuries. Matter of fact my family migrated here during the war and all joined the Army so they could go kill the Germans who invaded (that whole soft underbelly invasion never happened). Yes we are violent people but we did keep Europe from being invaded by the Muslim armies of the Ottoman Empire (believe it or not this battle is still remembered in my heritage and the holiday is coming up). The battlefield is pretty famous if you are ever in Kosovo (Serbia) I would go visit and while your there visit the birth place of Mother Teresa.

I neither said nor claimed anything of the sort. Nor did Ranwolf or Ruji. We were discussing the origin of the term itself. Which was indeed popularized in the 1700s. If you're going to throw a shitfit, at least make sure you read what it is you're twisting your panties over.

Nevermind that you did so minutes after saying some people get offended over everything.

Oh I get it now ya think you're genetically different from the Croatians and the Germans and the rest of Europe because your grandparents or whatever were born under a different flag then the Croatians, the Germans and the rest of Europe. That's like me saying I am entirely different phenotype from a Sto:lo just because I am Nehinawewin. The only difference between us is a language and cultural one , that don't change the story our DNA is telling though ya know.

As for being violent all people are at some point in their history. Even mine aren't entirely free of that fact. And funny enough my people make excellent soldiers, so much so the CAF goes out of their way to recruit them.
