    Went to see him speak in NH last weekend. He really just makes a ton of logical sense.
    He has little to no chance of winning which is real shame, but I encourage everyone to at least entertain his ideas. UBI doesn't necessarily mean socialism.

    I don't mind Shapiro too much but anytime you want to be seen as an intellectual and you're deeply deeply religious I just can't take you seriously.
    You're all about data and facts yet you're entire belief system is based on faith with no facts and evidence to back it up. No problems with religion and not to turn this into a religious debate, but that's just my opinion.

    White rich people really want to gentrify everything. Another example of a white person taking someone else's culture and trying to "uplift" it. Our culture doesn't need your uplifting. Let's just assume all Chinese restaurants make people feel "bloated and icky" as she says. Then that's what Chinese food is and if you don't want to feel bloated and icky then eat something else. We don't need to be ****ing saved. We're good the way we are.

    Understand. First time with him on Rogan where conversation had a religious component. If you watch entire episode or listen to his daily shows, dude does a great job on commentary. And very much without a religious point of view.
    As I get older, organized religion not my thing but can respect the belief.

    Why is Ben Shapiro being posted? Dude isn’t as smart as he think he is and he’s at least said some pretty racist and bigoted things, if he’s not a racist or bigot himself.

    Did he eat the pho properly though? We should also remember it is ok for people to like and cook cuisines not of their culture.

    That’s a very loaded and unfounded shot.
    Original poster and I were discussing the merits of this guy’s proposals. Interesting conversation.

    For a non Asian like myself, I grew up listening to Mountain Brothers, Jin, Bambu, Geologic. Seeing Dumbfoundead’s battles. Then you factor in the sheer amount of Filipino DJ’s from the West Coast. Asians have been involved for years. Are they ready to make a big commercial splash in US Hip Hop? I don’t know. But Hip Hop is bigger than just what’s on the surface.
