    “Why did you chose the name Young Turks?” — bc in the english language it is the term for young people eager for radical change to the established order.
    “As a person from Turkey Cenk knows what the name means in Turkey” — the name has no meaning in turkey, since the language spoken in turkey is turkish. if you ask a common turk from turkey about the name ‘the young turks’, you’ll get an answer like ‘anlamıyorum’.

    What! So Maury, Steve Wilkos and Jeremy Kyle aren’t reliable sources?

    Why did you chose the name Young Turks ? As a person from Turkey Cenk knows what the name means in Turkey. It means Genocide. Check out Genocide of the Armenians by the Young Turks.

    TYT sucks big time on this test. Lie detectors don’t work.

    Straight up, if any of you think I’m wrong, research it. A Latin American country like Mexico is actually quite diverse. Or Argentina, or Brazil, or Columbia. Countries like El Salvador or Gyuana though are practically all home to the Natives.I really hope you read my comments, Cenk and Ana. Becuase if you truly want to inform your audience, than you might want to stop describing latinos like they’re their own race of people. It’s that kind of blatant ignorance that leads to this kind of racism.

    I usually have many issues with TYT’s style of reporting, but I felt they addressed the issue quite effectively in this video.

  8. Dmarino251 says:

    P.S, the reason most “Hispanics” look brown, is because the majority of people from latin america descended from Native American/Spanish people. When the Spanish came to North America, they raped the fuck out of the Natives, and brought the French, Germans, Italians, etc in the 1860′s. So don’t tell me “Hispanic” is a race or ethnicity. It’s some bullshit term the Census came up with to describe the influx of spanish speaking immigrants from Cuba and Puerto Rico through the 1900′s.

  9. Dmarino251 says:

    Yo, Hispanic isn’t a fucking race you dipshits. You’re going to tell me White people can’t be Hispanic? Or Black people can’t be Hispanic? Why don’t you look at Alexis Bledel or Louie C.K. and think for a minute because they were born in Mexico. This is the kind of ignorant bullshit we Americans have been taught to believe for so long that “Hispanics” are all brown people. so if you’re really against racism, stop acting like “Hispanics” and “Latinos” are their own race of people.

    “All social workers should be required to take tests to determine their prejudice quotient.”

    If thats okay. Then would it be okay if all social clients take polly and urine tests. If you are abusing or lying on something it might exclude you from access to social programs, but as long as you have nothing to hide every kind of tests are okay right?

    Its a two way street buddy.

  14. Lobos222 says:

    Polygraph Tests for employment should not be allowed. Its a invasion of privacy and assume that you are guilty until proven innocent. There are other functions already in place to check over time if people are fit for the job they applied for.

    You also have the civil liberty issue of it being legal to not be political correct. While its not cool, its not illegal to be a racist. Its when you act out on it, for example, a a police officer its illegal. Whats next? Political affiliation questions?

  15. thebrassdubliner says:

    You shouldn’t use them, not because they’re intrusive, but because they’re bollox! You could fail on racism if you’re sufficiently afraid of being percieved as racist, and the most racist fucks will pass happily as they’re at peace with their bigotry.

    Fake and gay

  17. Bobby Dickenbags says:

    yep.

  18. Salvatore Shiggerino says:

    Thought police. Literally policing people’s thoughts.

  19. Kemonokami says:

    The sad truth is that everyone’s racist to some degree. You just have to be less racist than everyone else.

  20. Chris Pagan says:

    I didn’t miss the point your an idiot with your condescension. Your not that bright so don’t pretend. Police departments already give polygraph’s in hiring and a racist questions on top of drug ones is not a issue. Also courts do allow polygraph admission with “the stipulations of both parties” So saying they are not aloud also is incorrect.. And only New York, Texas, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia are polygraph’s completely inadmissible.

    As young as 9 months babies show biases when looking at faces of different ethnicities. Its inbuilt that we discriminate against any perceived out group as a threat to tribal security. So no, its not ‘learned’ it shows up far too soon for that.
