I'm quite surprised this thread even exists among this community. Out of all the people in the world i though you guys would know that race is a SOCIAL CONSTRUCT that has ZERO basis in biology. According to the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature there is no racial differentiation based on biology in man. It's another devious control mechanism created by the PTB to keep the poor blaming other poor for their problems. C'mon guys you are smarter than that.

I find it ironic that there is a picture of Morgan Freeman in this thread .

Well listen to what he says about race.

There are no poors in America, I mean jeez, 76% of people living below the poverty line have a car.  A CAR!  How can you be poor and have a car?  99.6 even have a fridge!  78% have a dvd player.  If you are poor you should be saving your money to get a better job or education, not buying frivolous shit like fridges and cars.

err yes, race is social construct. and?
racism is still a powerful and pervasive force in our societies, we are one generation from
http://i.imgur.com/1fVV8.jpg
but apparently now it's no longer  a problem and hey if we all bury our heads in the sand and pretend that white privelege no longer exists everything will be A-OK

Again, I'm not complaining that there are few black people here. I recognise that the techie nature makes the landscape more like northern canada (although presumably there are women in northern canada. whats your excuse for the gender imbalance?)... It's a natural consequence of the territory. However, it being 'natural' doesn't make it positive. And we can't stay in northern canada forever. At some point, bitcoin needs to expand to the rest of the world.

But does nobody else think it is a bad thing that bitcoin is dominated by white dudes? You idiots mock the idea of even pausing for a second to analyse the consequences of that.
I think there should be a concerned effort increase the diversity of the bitcoin  userbase, because the bitcoin economy will only succeed when it is true representative of wider legacy-currency using society. We need everyone to use bitcoins, not just white nerds... An economy cannot sustain itself on slim jims, mountain dew and RAM upgrades alone. And by it's nature there is a risk of moving bitcoin into a 'niche' in which we control the wealth. Once we are in there it's going to be difficult to move out of.

I wonder if these type of photographs can be found on ancestry.com?   "Look, MY grandmother was a racist!"

I'm a bitcoin developer.  I may be white, but my name is black. 

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to prayers.

You constantly offer racist problems but no solutions other than changing what has occurred and assuming what has occurred is wrong because of the fools who made Bitcoin were not born with the right heritage for you

Let's face it, chances are "Satoshi Nakamoto" is the handle of an anime-obsessed otaku Japanophile white american nerd too. He has never written anything in Japanese. Nothing about him points to Japan except his pseudonym. So pointing to him does seem a little hollow

There is no evidence that Satoshi is Japanese, or any other ethnicity for that matter.

So is holding up Morgan Freeman as an example and implying "why can't all the darkies think like this guy?"

Trying reading comprehension.

 I said it was ironic that someone used Morgan Freeman to support the notion of a "black" god in this thread when his personal view is that the black/white differentiation is without substance.

Too bad it's too late for you to participate in this.

Only if you allow it to be with bullshit old school way of thoughts like this.

I bet you support things holding back society like Black History Month too?

Such a shit thread.     Less racism, less sexism, was already existing in Bitcoin.  Only old school ways of thoughts will keep it from progressing further imo.
AND WHERE IS OUR WHITE ENTERTAINMENT TELEVISION?

Fuck off back to stormfront please, this topic is for serious discussion.

LMAO. This topic and serious discussion would never been seen in the same sentence...

If my post helped, I'll happily accept a few bitmills!   15rGg6A1JFZV3b7TTbtpAaiYGdUD1e1oAm

Didn't Freeman actually say that nothing was going to change the fact that he was a black guy and someone else is a white guy? I think his substance argument is more directed towards the concept of Black History Month.

Little known fact, "Satoshu Nakamu" is a popular phrase in Japanese to describe white foreigners obsessed with the show Naruto

I didnt realize race disclosure was necessary to use bitcoins. Last time I checked I was black.... not mixed, straight black Jamaican American....

I am smart... I am a nerd... got an MS in Computer Science, started working on a PhD in it and quit after I realized its a waste of time and money....

work as a software engineer, started a few companies, lived in more than one country, drives an Infiniti, owns over 50 acres of land...

got money to waste buying stupid shit like bitcoins....

and I am 32....

You completely missed the point.
FlipPro did not tell that Satoshi is Japanese.
FlipPro referred to the well known fact that Satoshi is black.

How can you even know who uses Bitcoin based on race age or whatever?
