Honestly, nothing really upsets me anymore except when it comes to math or game design skill (since I rely on them to make money, so it's like life or death to me). Don't get me wrong, my Native American Heritage is important to me because it was important to Juanita. She was angry at the Cherokee for not helping in the final wars & claimed that they got the best from the war by making trades with the settlers & giving a bad reputation to all the natives as all clans be "Indian Gives". I feel obligated to at least make some of the money that these "Indian" casinos are making and buy up some of the apache lands & even make a casino since I don't think I could get the federal government's help. But I think she would be proud if I made an attempt to reunite the tribe. Apparently some of the land is the death valley in California to Oklahoma.

Honestly, race has never been that important to me, but I do care a lot about Juanita. But I also care a lot about Shackleford so I don't mind being a white guy for him.

It's hard to really be offended for making racial assumptions when it seems like everyone does it :/ There are plenty of famous people that are labeled as just 1 race, maybe because it's just easy for people to only remember one thing about someone :'( Did you know Jim Hendrix was 50% Cherokee? But yet everyone just sees him like any other black guy 🙄

I'm curious, is that because skin color is all anyone sees to distinguish people???

Would it be racist for the KKK to recruit a black guy based on the color of his skin?
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

Yes absolutely. Do you really need to ask this question? Why do you not know this??? DOING ANYTHING BECAUSE OF SOMEONE'S SKIN IS RACIST! Seriously, there needs to be a legitimate reason for why you are ever selecting someone based on their skin color, IDK maybe you're choosing black-skinned people because their skin can tolerate the sun better I guess that would make sense but then there is always sunscreen so it's really hard to even think of a legitimate reason because I can't. The sad truth is even people who are selecting specific races or skin colors as dating partners are racist and need to come to terms with it. I forget the Muslim but there is one that has two different paths for prejudice & non-prejudice & the non-prejudice path later merges into the prejudice path showing how everyone is prejudice. I feel bad that you really didn't know the answer to your question. I will gladly help in any way to close the ignorance gap so that WoV can become tolerant to new members.

P.S. When I start hiring for my company I'm just going to pick the best people for each job. I'm not going to care about your skin color, your ethnicity, your nationality, your religion, your gender identity, or preference. I don't care if my company is completely filled with white guys or Indian programmers who I get passports for ;)

Big fan of Dave Chapel.

So I have a lot of videos of my friend Keith & I playing California Roll, but in this particular video, it gets really personal (& I got embarrassed) as my friend explains how I responded to a police officer. I was surprised when he brought up that story as an example of his classification of racial personalities 😆

I read in the Las Vegas Review Journal that the Plaza is unveiling a new section of "Slot Influencer Slot Machines". I guess they hope the youtubers will drive customers to their casino. That is a pretty progressive thing for a casino to do. I admire them for trying it.

I'm watching Rick Beato rant
Rick's great if you like guitar rock
watch him and geek out for a while
he's mad about a copyright
strike on his youtube channel now
The Cars (or UMG) cried foul.
I guess free promotion is not
"just what (they) needed" from poor Rick
he says one million views gets paid
twelve hundred bucks. that's not a lot.
I guess it does cover slot costs?
