It still should be if one wants to view it as hypocrisy.

You are missing the point. In order to be accepted by the white bigot or whomever, he has to pretend to be something he is not.

I don't think it bothers him in the slightest. I think God has a very different view of things than we do.

I don't it bothers him even one iota. Why would God have an ego like we do? If someone doesn't believe in God, don't you think God would know and understand why?

Why do they have to be mutually exclusive. If there is a God, who do you think created the rules of science that we study?'

Why not? You do you realize that believing in God does not automatically mean you believe in the bible.

Reading your above post, I think you did your part to send this off on a negative discourse as well.
Commented on Jason Collins to Tony Dungy: Look at my example with Brooklyn Nets on Jul 25 2014, 11:43p
Wow are you simplifying things. Way to go. By the way, evolution and God are not mutually exclusive.
Commented on Jason Collins to Tony Dungy: Look at my example with Brooklyn Nets on Jul 25 2014, 11:42p
Then I think you are missing the point. Dungy knows what it feels like to be excluded. To be judged. I am sure he has struggled or worked hard for the cause of black rights.

Yeah, to me, that's what facebook is for. My brother provided an excellent explanation for Twitter back in the early days during a holiday where the older generations of my family weren't sure what it was.

Well, I still knew how to google gifs so I just googled, "It's a trap gif". GMJigga just gave me more resources. And yes, he will regret that.

I looked it up. Erudite was an ancient Egyptian romance language. Hence the confusion about Moses.

Even if you told them outright that they are hurting their children, that their children will not make the team as a result? Or would that be too risky and cause you to face disciplinary action?

That's what it is. The inclusion is in the feeling of exclusion.

Thanks. My first ever gif was last week. I took the plunge and it worked. Then I experimented further with a moving gif, and it worked, too. And I felt like such a DIY'er.

If you are feeling this ennui, these doldrums, maybe you are pushing yourself to be too headstrong, and aren't allowing yourself to use your emotions or other parts of yourself enough.

There are plenty of books that I've read that have helped me come to these beliefs, but I also think those beliefs were already there just waiting to be unlocked by the right words.

The simplest way to look at it is: what if every team held Dungy's views?

How is it totally different? They both still know what it feels like to be treated differently as a result of who they are.
