KENNETH S ROGOFF
(born Mar-22-1953, 65 years old) United States of America

[what is this?]
Kenneth Saul Rogoff learned chess from his father at age six, but only took up the game in earnest when he received a chess set for his 13th birthday. He was soon recognised as a chess prodigy. By age 14, he was a USCF master and New York State Open Champion, and shortly thereafter became a senior master, the highest US national title. At sixteen, Rogoff dropped out of high school to concentrate on chess, and spent the next several years living primarily in Europe and playing in tournaments there. When eighteen, he made the decision to go to college and pursue a career in economics rather than to become a professional player, although he continued to play and improve for several years afterward.

Rogoff was awarded the IM title in 1974 and the GM title in 1978. He came third in the World Junior Championship of 1971 and finished second in the US Championship of 1975, which doubled as a Zonal competition, one-half point behind Walter Shawn Browne; this result qualified him for the 1976 Interzonal at Biel, where he finished 13-15th. In other tournaments he finished equal first at Norristown 1973 and Orense 1976.

Early in his economics career, Rogoff served as chief economist at the International Monetary Fund and also at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. He is currently the Thomas D. Cabot Professor of Public Policy and Professor of Economics at Harvard University.

  Big Pawn: Slavery was around for thousands of years (still is), and was considered part of life for some folks.

However, white European-roots Christians put an end to it.

Thank the white man.

  saffuna: Here's the comment that started today's discussion:

<To have any discussion there must be some agreement about basic facts. If a person arguing about racism refuses to agree that slavery in the US was not based on race, there's really no way to have any discussion.>

Jan-13-18  Bobsterman3000: The term "racism" did not exist while American slavery was legal.

Arbitrary.

The discussion hasn't restarted at all. It's still ongoing and you've left the debate podium, running away with your tail between your legs.

I said racism never exist.
You said it did.

I asked you to show me.
You pointed to slavery.

I told you slavery is not evidence of racism.
You said it was.

I asked you if black slave owners were racists then. You said no.

Case closed.

  saffuna: There cannot be a discussion of racism if one person refuses to agree that slavery in the US was not based on race. It's that simple.

ROFLMAO

Asians in the USA don't really refer to themselves as "persons of color" despite what you may see on the Internet.

Okinawans weren't put in internment camps as they weren't in the continental USA in any numbers.

Your "self-education by click-bait Websites" doesn't seem to be going too well, despite how many times mum tells you to ignore everyone telling you you're dumb as a brick.

Who made that rule?

Besides, it's all water under the bridge now. You agree that slavery is not evidence of racism, because you say that black slave owners aren't racist.

There doesn't <need> to be any further discussion.

<Asians in the USA don't really refer to themselves as "persons of color" despite what you may see on the Internet.>

Says the mong who referred to himself as an Asian in America who's.. - wait for it - <A person of colour!>

Jan-14-18  Bobsterman3000: <Dr Winston OBoogie: <Okinawans weren't put in internment camps> >

That's in the actual war zone in Okinawa, you idiot. That's not in the internment camps in California. @#$%* happens in war, fruitcake.

I know you think that war is mainly just a chance for you to wave and make googie eyes at a bunch of boys in uniform, but reality beckons.

Anyway, I have no time for someone of such low character. You've never even paid your $$$ mum back for all those times she had to bail you out from your "troubles".

Jan-14-18  Larryfyffe: The GOP's throwing of the dice in 'support' of Trump's racist remarks through silence is a risky gamble indeed with elections in the offing. It is not that clear that a possible economic upturnin the US will trump decent human morality.

Doubtful too is it that the filthy racist bigotry of the likes of neofascist <Big pawn> has a large enough base in America to carry the GOP beyond the damage caused by Trump's motto of 'Make America White Again'.

Time will tell.

Jan-14-18  Bobsterman3000: Tightening labor market is causing US employers to give more chances to American <CITIZENS> with criminal records:

  Big Pawn: The story in Exodus tells us that the Jews were held captive as slaves in Egypt for 400 years. They always maintained their own identity as Jews and did not think of themselves as Egyptians. Eventually, God made it possible for them to go back to their homeland.

Blacks were being sold in Africa and taken to America as far back as the 1600s, almost 400 years. They never considered themselves fully American (calling themselves Africans or African-American) and refuse to assimilate fully into American culture (don't want to act white - that's Uncle Tom stuff).

The Jews were grumbling in Egypt and the blacks are grumbling in America.

Finally, God answered the Jew's prayers and lead them out of Egypt.

Should the blacks be lead back to their homeland that they identify with? Should we consider such an event similar to the event in Exodus? Is 400 years in America (an awful country) long enough?

  Big Pawn: I'm hearing that Trump didn't say "@#$%hole countries" That is a huge disappointment of course.

But Trump did not deny the sentiments he is alleged to have expressed, namely, he wonders why we want to let in all these people from @#$%hole countries (whether he said that word or not)!

Neither Trump nor I can see exactly <why> America needs to let those kinds of people in here. Just look at what them people do to their own countries and you'll know exactly what they'll bring to the country.

We want to bring in people from countries that are good, decent, beautiful countries where beautiful people live and don't throw their litter all over the streets like they do in Haiti.

We want people from countries that are family friendly, where for the most part it's safe, where people have a certain expectation that others will behave a certain way at a certain standard.

God bless Trump.

Jan-14-18  Bobsterman3000: <Big Pawn> Our good friend <Jim> can flap his fat hypocrite lips all he wants but the segregation and income inequality in California is pretty much worst in the nation:

  Big Pawn: You know what the libs don't like? They don't like that no one cares when they accuse someone of "racism" or being "racist" anymore. It was their go to weapon of choice for many years, even decades. If they wanted to have their way, they would just call the other guy a racist. Then the libs in the media would put it on TV like it's news and that's that.

Not anymore!

It's become a joke now. Mems go around all over social media about how the libs have ridiculously overused the word, to the point where it's the "boy who cried wolf".

The walls are tumbling down. The walls of political correctness which have long protected the city of liberalism are tumbling down.

If you criticized anything liberal, you got called a racist and it was over. It was their NUKE for so many years. They fired those nukes without reservation, but now, the walls are tumbling down.

Even some of the libs are getting sick and tired of women telling them (the men) to sit down and shut up when a black or a woman is speaking. Just "sit down and shut up!"

Many former cucks have woken up and are now beginning to be real men.

The Trump era!

Well you've got to admit, it's getting harder all the time to maintain forceful integration. The blacks, as you well know and as the <tuna> well knows, have been calling for segregation rather loudly for the last couple of years, particularly on campus but other places as well.

Blacks see the weak, wimpy, unmanly, pathetic, white liberals tripping over themselves in a manic frenzy to drop down and lick black boots and suck black toes in public, all the time, with no shame, and it's making them sick.

Black people are like, "Yeah okay, just GTF away from me. AH, safe space please. No whites!"

They get tired of seeing a whitey everywhere they look, even if the whiteys are on their side.

Don't blame the blacks for this, it's entirely natural. The smart ones know that they are being used like pawns in the game of politics, but the rest of them just know that something just ain't right - and whitey needs to back off some and stop licking boots so hardcore.

  Big Pawn: Just saw the video of Anderson Cooper crying crocodile tears over Trump's alleged "@#$%hole" remarks.

Someone needs to tell Anderson Cooper that the whole country knows he's a flaming homo! Here he is pretending to have morals, crying because his sense of right and wrong was offended by Trump, when he himself lives a totally homosexual lifestyle!

Pffft.

NEXT!

  Big Pawn: Liberalism is feminism and feminism is liberalism. If you think like a liberal then you think like a woman, and it doesn't matter if you know it or not, if you believe it or not.

A real man cannot be a liberal. If a man is a liberal and his manliness wakes up inside him one day, he will move away from liberalism a bit at a time, finding it more and more repulsive each and every day. It's unnatural for a man to think like a woman.

Jan-14-18  Bobsterman3000: <Big Pawn - Well you've got to admit, it's getting harder all the time to maintain forceful integration. The blacks, as you well know and as the <tuna> well knows, have been calling for segregation rather loudly for the last couple of years, particularly on campus but other places as well.>

You are so right.

<Jim> and <HMM> are so full of shi*t because they always try to defend the sacred cows of liberalism.

Just look at the areas of the USA where blacks are doing the best - places like Atlanta or Charlotte or Dallas. Black people like to have their own spaces where they can feel comfortable and be in the majority and work out a sense of community in their own way - they only need to feel "integrated" in economic opportunities.

The entire Southern side of Atlanta is like that, with a whole lot of middle class neighborhoods that are 90% black. Blacks are doing much better and have better quality of life in Atlanta or Houston or Charlotte than they are living around lib hypocrites in NYC or California.

BTW, blacks are fleeing all of the liberal cities on the West Coast:
