Hulk Hogan racist video: WWE deletes all references to wrestling star from website and store submitted by flyawayhigh to news

VoItaire 0 points 22 points (+22|-0) ago

Though racism is condemnable, the video of "Hulk Hogan saying the n word" isn't in the slightest. Given the context and the story-telling, as well as the host saying it first, there was nothing wrong with it.

Doesn't look good for him in the future though. Good thing I don't particularly care.

Thursday Discussion - Plato's Apologia submitted by VoItaire to Classics

VoItaire 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

For those who prefer an admittedly easier format, here is an excellent performance of a select portion of the apologia.

A little background, for those unaware.

This is Plato's account of what Socrates said during his trial (399 BC), for which he was accused of impiety and corrupting the youth of Athens. If I recall correctly, he was probably speaking towards 500 jurors and in his own defense, as was the custom at the time.
