Mostly a simple assumption that my experience isn't out of the ordinary. That being that everyone knows Mohammed is an Islamic name because of the prophet, and people don't know that Jamal is because it hasn't got such a major connection to anything.

Ahh, I see what you're saying. I agree that most people in the US do not realize that Jamal is an Islamic name. However, I think most people in the US would associate the name Jamal with our black population (which would come with its own set of cultural and racial stereotypes).

And I think it's possible most people associate it with the poor population, which goes back to me being interested in someone checking if it is.

Yeah, I would definitely love to see a study done on how much of a classicism vs. racism bias is playing into this.

I am not saying that whites need diversity quotas, I am saying that there is no truth to the statement that being a minority is an instant disadvantage. In many cases, it is an advantage.

I also just dont agree with diversity quotas at all. I mean, they might have had a use in the past, but in current times, there is no use for them. I should not be excluded from school just because the school doesnt have enough black people, and standards shouldnt be lowered so certain groups with lower averages can attend. If I am the best qualified, I should get the spot

I see what you mean, and I totally understand your frustration. I would love to see a world where diversity quotas serve no purpose anymore. I personally don't think we are there yet, but that's just my view.

One of the sad things is that diversity quotas hurt individuals while helping society. By that, I mean that they are meant to make up for the disadvantages that are statistically connected to being born as a minority. For example, Blacks have a much higher rate of urban living than Whites. We also know that urban areas tend to have much higher crime rates and worse schools than suburban areas. Finally, Blacks are significantly less likely to attend college than Whites (likely because of their higher exposure to crime, poverty, and poor education). Diversity quotas are meant to make up for some of these disadvantages in the hope that Black students will be able to attend college and build careers that can hopefully end the major racial divide in terms of socioeconomic class.

I'm not trying to say whether diversity quotas are right or wrong, I'm just trying to explain why they exist. With that said, I would personally like to see a shift towards a system that focuses more on admitting students based on socioeconomic class instead of race.

I had no idea that Jamal meant beauty in Arabic until today, and I would wager the overwhelming majority of people don't. I also only knew Erik was Norse because of Erik the Red. I am reasonably confident that cultural stereotypes are at best a tiny portion of the problem here.

Maybe if the names in question were Mohammed I'd see your point.

I'm curious as to why you feel confident that cultural stereotypes would only be a small factor in a name like Jamal, but would be a much larger factor in a name like Muhammad? Don't both names have racial/cultural stereotypes attached to them?

You are absolutely right in that perspective. Problem is, I have trouble looking at the situation in that perspective anymore. Is rape rape? Idk anymore. Did the girl get raped or actually get raped? Idk. This is a problem that simply cannot be solved with our current technologies in a cost-effective manner (which some people take advantage of by playing the slut who cried rape).

But the thing that we can do is to set up laws regarding ACTUAL EQUALITY, like having the same penalties for false accusation of rape vs. the penalty for rape. Like I said before, the power to ruin a person's life should be held accountable to the person who uses it. If they abuse the power, they should have the equal penalty. That is something which we can do and really, if people actually cared about equality, it is perfectly reasonable.

until there has been official responses, arrests and prosecution of actual callers of false SWATS on households for simply being opposed to a feminist's opinion and there has been examples of female rapes/harassment/blackmails and false accusations being sentenced to the same degree of male rapes instead of a light slap on the wrist. There will be no sympathy from me since they are violating the principle definition of equality. If you have the power to send someone's life into the garbage and you abuse it, you should face the same punishment.

And whether the media reports it or not (mostly not), people just turn a blind eye towards threats (death, job-loss ect..) to anti-modern feminists? Yet, the discussions are not closed because of those people. Seriously, just take a look some of the Christina Hoff Sommers articles, the threats are just as disgusting in the comments, in the responses, everything. I am sure to get red thumbs for this but until a female gets a life-sentence for falsely accusing rape, I don't give a fuck about rape cases because from the start, if a female opens her mouth about rape, the accused gets treatment that might as well be guilty until proven innocent.

[And even if proven innocent, the woman will still be label as the victim for "oh, look at that this man drove me into doing" or "she just needed attention and all the neglect" and the man's life will still be irreversibly affected in all aspects.] (I have no actual concrete proof or statistic of this, but this is my observation of each resolved false rape charge, the woman still receives support - which is unheard of if it is a male)

My friend, I never said that feminists did not engage in threats/SWAT calls, etc. I was just pointing out that because there is so much anger on both sides of the issue, it is nearly impossible to have rational discourse/debates.

In fact, you said that you "don't give a fuck about rape cases" because women who falsely accuse don't receive life in prison. The problem with that is that you are also ignoring the women who have actually had their life destroyed by rape. The way our justice system works, a person must be proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in order to be convicted of a crime. Because rape is so difficult to prove, most rapists are never prosecuted/convicted. While I agree that falsely accusing someone of rape with the intent to ruin their life should be punished harshly, that's not a reason to ignore rape victims.

In a non-legal setting, a person accused of raping another may well be treated as guilty by the community even if there's no evidence like you said. However, it works both ways. There are quite a few communities where the rape victim will be slut-shamed.
