Quote:
Written between October 1922 and March 1923, the diaries track his experiences in Asia and the Middle East.

In them, he makes sweeping and negative generalisations, for example calling the Chinese "industrious, filthy, obtuse people".

Einstein would later in life advocate for civil rights in the US, calling racism "a disease of white people".


We must obviously strike his name from history and see to it that any works of his are forgotten - which may kick the modern world in the arse a bit - but we can then rediscover * in a few year's time.


(* it'll turn out that a minority actually wrote most 'em.)

We are all white here and we have to stay in the guilt-pit. Forever ( I know langage )

Edith: I read up on that lying pos called wikipedia. Obviously the parents were'nt religious. I mean wtf are the world going end up? We need more radicalism!
As goes with Neils Bohr, the mother being a jew and married a dane, without her brothers, cousins, fathers and shit going all jihad on her.

Good examples where people are good ones, going into European culture in full.

Einstein was actually a black slave from Zimbabwe, in German Ein means one and stein means glass. This is what the customers used to shout at the slave when they wanted another drink, so he adopted it as his own. In between serving customers he would work through mathematical forumlas and actually created most of the famous German beers known today with his knowledge of physics n shit. One of the most notorious drunks in the place Ein Stein worked was the white German people know today as Einstein, he beat the slave to death and took his work claiming it for his own and had to adopt his slave name in some form because it was written all over the slave notes.

Today you learned.

So, he threw some knuckles and bones from an albino and then rambled the entire periodic table from Hydrogen to Plumbum?

Probably referring to Stein, which kinda sorta could be considered a "glass".

But yeah apart from that Stein translates to stone or rock

How do you even manage to communicate among yourselves if you do not know what words mean?

Einstein, new hero for the Alt-Right.

They'll freak out when they realize he was a Jew.

Glass and stone are two diametrically opposite objects.

Is it glass or stone?

It's a label - stop applying labels.

Technically the Jews were African slaves when the Egyptians forced them to build around the Goshen area.

Except it's not "glass"; it's a mug, jug or jar, and they were typically made out of baked clay by the primitive barbarians of Europe. Hence, "stone" was a term for a piece of pottery such as a beer mug. Don't be such a dick. You tried to make an ass out of him, but since you're not half as smart as you think you are, you only made an ass out of yourself. Luke: "Judge not lest ye be pwned."

You have serious comprehension issues. Think maybe it's early onset of Alzheimer's?

Or definitely your blood pressure and maybe your blood sugar. As I've mentioned before your posts always read like you're having a stroke.

I'm really concerned. Are you okay buddy?

I don't know about you but after joining these forums, that word alone makes my blood boil. Apropo, where is he? Why hasn't he shown up in this thread to read out another passage out of Marx's Manifesto for us yet? I'm getting worried...

Well, you weren't here yet when he was a constant presence. Most of the regulars long ago learned to just sort of tune him out. He's not half as bad now.
