It makes me sad when he demonstrates over and over that in his mind "not white" = AA.
There is a beautiful young student at my school who is having a hard time with college applications. You see she emigrated here about six years ago from Nigeria. She is truly the embodiment of African American. Her struggle lies in her definite lack of pigmentation. She is more white girl than this poor old Anglo Saxon. If my mind was so narrow as to that of OTP I could never see the amazing child she is - all her characteristics. She wants to study environmental science so she can return home and improve the water quality.
What's worse, he couldn't name Neil deGrasse Tyson who has the excellent show Cosmos. This guy has done wonders for astrophysics. But I have no desire to see him shirtless!
One colored glasses means you miss the beauty of the entire spectrum of colors. So sad
You said " why all of the men mentioned are white". You didn't say African American. Not all non-white people are African American. Not all black people are African American
Or you could have just said Ronald McNair, and trumped everybody and ended on a high note.
Btw, a couple of months back, CLMullins and I were naming women who we thought were hot and over half of the ones I named were white.
So, it is you posters that are race haters.
Those two are not black, African American. Hell, I don't have an obsession with race, I think the Kardashians, A. Jollie, Charlize Theron, etc are really hot. Hell, if you got it, you got it, race doesn't matter except to the posters that say who they think is hot.
Hadji, I really feel sorry for you. You are not man or woman enough to just say it like you feel.
But, who has the longest up quark?
The visual isn't pretty.
You made my day
"Making physics glamorous"
Why yes, yes it is. I can't wait to tell my students
Yea CL I'd let her drive
Try Deborah Berebichez and Firouzeh Sabri. Those are some hot women with big brains
Neither Rahul nor Rukh qualify as white.
Pretty sure David Greene has a mixed heritage too.
Take off your f#%^* race colored glasses
Since you asked why you are wondering such things about another person I thought I'd answer you ( I'm helpful that way).
It is because you have an unhealthy obsession with race.
I wonder why all of the men mentioned are white? Just wondering?
Amy Mainzer, a beauty for sure, but would I want her guiding my Mars probe.
I see Memphis as better off. I mentioned before about optimizing the system. The hard decisions are now being made. Having more money does not mean effectively using the money. We will see new schools where needed. The entire county will pay for it. The MOE is gone. The span of control has increased with the addition of the unincorporated students. The unincorporated students will see better representation. The exception will be those that for whatever reason refuse to accept African American leadership. They have muni envy and will perceive anything done by SCS as negative.
I never saw benefit in having 2 BOE's on Hollywood. Now we will have several scattered across the county. It is sad that the racial divide is so great that this opportunity to merge and be successful is missed. Throw out the local control bull. The muni's will attempt to share services and in essence form legacy SCS 2.0. I intentionally try not to shop in the muni's. I had stopped shopping at the Piccadilly in Germantown but since I like the red velvet cake and realizing the most of the employees are Memphians, I changed my mind. I am buying a new car and refuse to purchase in the muni's.
The road for the muni's will be rougher than that for Memphis. This widening of the chasm between Memphis and the muni's will have many impacts. A 1/2 sales tax increase for education in Memphis and the unincorporated areas may soon have a chance at passage. All it will take is the right spin and sponsor.
OK just to make crack happy because I don't want MORE tears
Rahul Gandhi or Shah Rukh Khan
the Brits have a few young cuties: Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg and David Cameron and Tony Blair isn't too bad on the eyes either.
But I will always be partial to physicists. Derek Muller is my current crush, which make me very cougarish. And I probably would have explored daddy issues with Richard Feynman, given the chance.
Oh, get real. A naked, good-looking physicist is way better than a naked politician. Beauty and brains in the same package.
What is wrong with you people? The topic is naked political leaders, not naked physicists.
Who in their right mind would judge a physicist by how they look without clothes on?
Picture this. Palin and Bachman in their pajamas sitting down to watch the newest episode of Pretty Little Liars. The doorbell rings. "Oh good it's the pizza!" exclaims Palin. Door opens. In walks Vlad. "So, one large pizza extra anchovies?"
You know where it goes from there.
I'd never heard of Bryan Dahmes before, but yes, I'd like to see him shirtless. I suppose we can thank Carl Sagan for making physics glamorous. I never wanted to see Sagan shirtless, though.
I'm more than the stereotype liberal. I wake up every morning thinking up new ways to conduct "blatant rebellion against the normalcy of creation" where people starve to death, people worry themselves to death, where disease and natural disaster throw people's lives into chaos, where insular theologies from the Bible and the Koran incite religious wars and terror and government oppression, and where God's petulant brats like you cut and paste a lot of discredited crap that bolsters your pride at being the elect of heaven.
So what's your name at The Commercial Appeal? I don't recall encountering you with the standard bunch of homophobes over there.
