'Uglo-Americans': it's OK to discriminate against these folks
As a numbnuts uninformed cretin would say, 'can we be real here?' This, in response to dreamy ol' Fredd pining away that in Utopia, people would be judged not by the 'arrangement of their skin, but by the content of their character.' (apologies to Martin Luther King for butchering his phrase in his 'I have a Dream' speech).
I just thought I would wander off the conservative reservation for a bit, and point out that the pretty people in this world get a leg up in almost every endeavor, while the less than pretty folk get the shaft when trying to compete for a share of life's goodies against these hunks and babes.
Kim Kardashian is rich and famous for one thing only: her looks. She is as dumb as a bag of hammers (my apologies to all of those bags of hammers out there, you are WAY smarter than Kim), she dropped out of third grade, and treats everyone around her like a bag of dirt. But none of that matters. She's a looker, and as such is entitled to her fame and riches. Life is like that, you know, according to this aforementioned idiot. 'Get over it,' he would advise us all.
There has actually been legislation passed prohibiting discrimination in hiring by race, sex, age, color, creed, religion and sexual orientation. You will note, however, that general appearance does not make the list. But, as the moron mentioned above, being the wet blanket that he can sometimes be, will jerk us back into reality by pointing out that this is the way things are: that the ugly amoung us should not even bother to apply, and maybe even do us all a favor and just drop dead.
After all, let's get real, shall we?
And the idiot above indeed has an irrefutable point. We all prefer watching pretty people read the news, rather than a wart covered. wrinkly obese slob, right? It's not even arguable. We all discriminate against fat, zit faced, ugly old people. We do it every day. Virtually all of us.
But is it right? Is this the way things SHOULD be?
In Fredd's Dreamland Utopia (where most liberals always hang out), we would ideally be judged by our credentials, attitude, love of life, respect for others, tolerance, people skills, gumption and verve, period. Looks? Not applicable.
But then, the imbecile above will remind us all with his cold bucket of water that we don't dwell in Dreamland Utopia. Let's get real. The Uglo-American segment of society can just forget about getting ahead in life based on their credentials, etc.
And they can certainly forget about sitting behind the newsdesk, for the ugly need not apply. Indeed, they should do us all a favor and drop dead. Or, if they choose to keep on living for reasons unknown to us all, at least they should wear paper bags over their heads.
But life is like this, and we all know it. But it still ain't right....
