Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

sorry if off topic ... was reading about a different story this morning which is disturbing on several levels
Officer shouted racial slur before 2nd cop killed black man ?

The front page of the L.A. times is a look back on the 20 years since L.A. Riots Los Angeles Times - California, national and world news -

...sort of an interesting tidbit, my family has some interesting people in it , My uncle was a pretty smart dude, I remember him from when I was a kid , but they lived in the U'K. and unfortunately he died of Lou Gehrig's Disease years ago , but he wrote a book which was a pretty big deal, in his final days it became a learning tool in many ivy league schools and beyond ... and he was invited to the White House which was a proud moment for him and my Aunt even though he was too sick ....

pretty cool...

you can add me to the list of of those who ended up single as part of the journey towards success , so I spend more time on (formerly BMT) these days , keeps me busy...

Thanks all!

lot's of smart and compassionate people here at (formerly BMT) able to have interesting and entertaining conversations about
a wide range of topics and ideas that many are unable to do in person, online or even in their own homes I think good people just tend to find each other ...

Thanks to Big Mike and everyone here, it's a pleasure to stop in each day and be a part of this ....

Have a great weekend Everyone!

The book "Race: The History of an Idea in the West"

some of the reviews on Amazon ...

"A remarkable achievement, and one of the most important books ever published on this subject." -- New Statesman

"In a sweeping and ambitious survey of the concept of race from the ancient world to the 20th century, Ivan Hannaford argues that the modern notion of the term is misconstrued." -- Times Educational Supplement

"This book, the life's work of its late author, Ivan Hannaford, sets out to trace the development of the concept of race -- how and when it evolved -- as we understand it today in western civilization... The work is enormously learned, quoting liberally from authors spanning 2,500 years and packed with insightful and nuanced readings." -- David M. Goldenberg, International Journal of the Classical Tradition

"Ivan Hannaford's book is a tour de force of intellectual history. It is simultaneously a detective story, tracking down the provenance of a powerful idea, a work of meticulous textual exegesis with a decidedly breathtaking sweep, a subtle exercise in political theory, and a study in the epistemology of social science. Hannford shows how modern notions have been projected backward onto the quite different conceptions of earlier ages. He is able to pick up the first threads of racial thinking and follow them to the present. A major work of scholarship, this book is careful, bold, and wise." -- Donald L. Horowitz, Duke University

and I didn't even have a drink yet, guess it's sleep deprivation...

I agree, and you may be right. I just keep wondering why this particular case gets so much attention, but cases like where the white guy got beat by a group of non white people in Baltimore recently gets no attention.

It is news and gets attention when something we do not expect happens.

Dog bites Man - Not news
Man bites Dog - News
Tourist Mugged in Baltimore - Not news
Tourist Mugged in Baltimore and put on YouTube - News
Tourist Mugged in Baltimore police made an arrest ( Aaron Jacob Parsons ) - Not News

IMO, many of the people who claim to be against racism are extremely racist themselves.


Math. A gateway drug to reality.
