Why the hell are Cadillac Escalades so insanely popular with black people? For a while I kind of tried to tell myself I was just noticing cases where this was true as confirmation bias but I've seriously been keeping track and EVERY. SINGLE. ESCALADE. is driven by a black person here. Is it marketing? What the fuck is going on? Why the Escalade and not any other GM SUV using that frame?

Because they're seen as being a high-class expensive vehicle.

Mostly marketing. Those blacks have that low-class sensibility where they think having a fancy car and clothes is more important than food on the table and a clean house. See also: white trash.

Sowell's Black Rednecks and White Liberals lays it out pretty well. TLDR they're aping southern Celtic culture that they learned from intermingling with the Scots-Irish for decades. The Celts assimilated for the most part but the blacks did not. Ever wonder why blacks use "ax" instead of "ask" like a lot of low-class Britons? Well there you go.

Here's my question. Why do so many people think that being deliberately obtuse is a valid strategy in an argument? I had a guy last night challenge me to 'prove gravity' as if that was a real stumper rather than a damning admission that his brain is faulty.

It's funny because around here Mercedes-Benzes and BMWs are dirt-common, and I mean NICE BMWs not just run-down old 3-series. Teslas are popular. Porsches show up occasionally. Seen some Maseratis, at least one Bentley, and a bunch of Jaguars. All these upper-crusty things rolling around and here comes an Escalade with massive rims and of course the driver's black. It's like showing up to a grand ball full of tuxes, gowns, etc. in a fucking pimp's outfit.

Probably something to do with Dunning-Kruger, being a dumb shit who thinks he's smart enough to ROW ROW FIGHT THE POWER of conventional wisdom, and being too stupid-stubborn to admit you don't actually know jack or shit.

Suppose we got close enough to a black hole event horizon but far enough away to avoid its radiation. If we threw a camera into the black hole, tied to a rope, and assuming the camera nor the rope broke in the process, would @GethN7 still be a pedo?
Perfect setup and turn.

How many people would crowdfund support a re-release of the movie Event Horizon but with just the cutout torture scenes? Would it start a new breed of freaks?

Why do drunk white girls (it's ALWAYS drunk white girls...) feel the need to yell "WHOOOO!!!!!!" at the top of their lungs at 3:00 in the morning in a residential area?

Why do black guys always smoke menthol cigarettes? I've had black guys ask me if they could buy a cig or two from me, then refuse when they see it's not menthol I'm smoking.

Why are old men usually pleasant to deal with as customers, but old women are usually the biggest assholes you'll ever find working retail?

Why are church groups always the ones to leave the biggest mess, act the most rude towards staff and practically never leave a tip in restaurants?

Too drunk to properly say "PAY ATTENTION TO ME!!!!!" perhaps.

I've noticed it's SPECIFICALLY Newports for them. Like, nothing else will do. Not sure, really, menthols burned like hell when I tried them.

I find that old dudes are actually usually reasonably happy or at least prone to not wanting to trouble others when they are unhappy. Old ladies are usually some kind of miserable and want you to be miserable too. Personal experience speaking.

Why are church groups always the ones to leave the biggest mess, act the most rude towards staff and practically never leave a tip in restaurants?
I hadn't noticed this but I can kind of believe it. Lot of churchies talk the talk of being a good person and don't walk the walk, because they've been saved by Jeebus so fuck you.

I think this is a self-delusional tactic to make themselves feel like their argument is impenetrable. There were so many times during an argument where I was frozen because I've realized my discussion partner wasn't just joking, and they were dead serious when they had said their incredibly stupid shit. Seeing my moment of silence, these intellectual juggernauts usually go "See, you have no counter-arguments, I won!", and begin to ignore everything you say to them at that point.

You should have punched him in the face really hard so that when he fell on the ground you could prove once and for all that gravity is real.

Check mate.

Why do people spend hundreds/thousands of dollars on college and just decide that showing up to class is optional after day 1, you already spent the money so you might as well experience the class for a little while before just deciding it is a waste of time.
