It's not very effective in assigning moral responsibility, I'd agree. However, it's a mentality that allows one to address underlying problems without being caught up in who is most deserving of blame and all sorts of other fluff that is ultimately irrelevant to sorting the problems out.

Hate greedy bankers (for example) by all means, but set that aside and find ways to limit the damage they do in a dispassionate, effective and thorough manner. Then you can lynch them from lampposts, if that's what you're into.

People who say "don't hate the playa, hate the game" are only cheaply justifying their actions. Trying to nobly twist it into some crusade against structural problems is ridiculous.

Hating the game isn't very sportsmanlike, and neither is hating the player.

This is business, and you all are taking it very personally.

"tha game" is for black people who have no regards for anyone other than themselves

Yeah, I agree that the types of people that use that phrase with a straight face are exactly as you describe. That doesn't mean what they're saying can't be interpreted in other, more constructive ways.

Isn't the OP in this thread just hating on people who are frustrated rather than hating the system of frustration?

You can hate the game instead of the playa but sometimes the game was the fault of other playas somewhere so no matter what some playas gonna be hated on unless you absolve every playa from blame back through God or evolution or the universe or whatever and even then God still a playa and so is evolution, in fact I don't think anything ever existed that was simply the game and not a playa. Could it be that playas and games be one in the same?
