Title: Snowflakes
Post by: morekaos on January 17, 2019, 10:12:03 PM
I’m gonna start a thread to post all the funny snowflake stories out there on both sides of the aisle.  I’ll put up today’s most ridiculous and comedic story...

Google staff complained word FAMILY instead of children was homophobic

Google had to rethink the word 'family' in March 2017 when staff complained
Employees at California HQ said the term was 'offensive, inappropriate, homophobic, and wrong' when used in a presentation about a children's product
Approximately 100 people seemed to agree with an internal thread from someone who stormed out of the offending meeting two years ago
The person said the word 'family' is not equal to having children and Google should stop the use of it in that context
Various employees said they referred to animals, spouses, boyfriends, parents,and  multiple trans-feminine partners as their family
It was also said not all children have families so the words aren't interchangeable
VP Pavni Diwanji told staff to be more conscientious about referring to family

Thank you Rob Lowe...

Rob Lowe blasts college's decision to scrap the Pledge of Allegiance 'because of its links to 'white nationalism'

Rob Lowe criticized a college's decision to end reciting the Pledge of Allegiance
Santa Barbara City College said it decided to 'discontinue the use' of the Pledge to the U.S. flag at meetings as it is 'stepped in expressions of white nationalism'
The Parks and Recreation actor said the decision amounted to 'idiocy' on Twitter
The college reversed the decision on Tuesday after it received criticism

Seriously?

Phoenix restaurant says this is a photo of coal miners. But I see offensive blackface

A few weeks ago, I attended a holiday party at a downtown Phoenix restaurant. I walked around to view the photographs on the wall.

Then a photograph caught my attention.

Friends said, “It’s coal miners at a pub after work.” It was a photograph of coal miners with blackened faces. I asked a Latinx and white woman for their opinion. They said it looked like coal miners at a pub after work. Then they stepped back, frowned and said it’s men in blackface.

I asked the waitress to speak with a manager. Instead, I spoke with a white restaurant owner. I explained to him why the photograph was offensive. Evidently, someone else had made a similar comment about the photograph before.

Yet, the photograph remained on the wall. He said he would talk to the other owners and get back to me. While leaving, I asked him had he spoke with the other owners. He had not spoken with them, but mentioned Google said it's coal miners after work.

What are you talking about read the thread?
1. I called him out because Morekas posted articles that may offend people.
2. Morekas confirmed it as he mentioned this is the point of the thread. Also, he mentioned it drives dialogue.
3. So I’m the bad guy? When I’m standing up to him/calling him out that posting articles about “blackface” stories is not cool?
4. I said maybe you are okay with Morekas posts that are hateful in nature. Because you didn’t say nothing to him. Nothing at all.

That’s what this thread is all about, snowflakes taking meaningless, mundane things and conflating them into racist, phobic issues that butthurt their tender, pampered self image. Not at all hateful but clearly “funny”.  Comedy is truly dead. Does anyone think movies like Airplane, Blazing Saddles, Animal House or Soul Man could ever be made today? Oh hell no, but they are some of the funniest ever created. My kids love those movies.  PC has moved into the realm of bats#*t crazy and That’s sad. I find these extreme stories tragically funny, and that’s too bad

Mary Poppins branded racist for 'blacking up' in rooftop scene

US Professor Daniel Pollack-Pelzner criticised the classic Mary Poppins film
The academic criticises the film in an article published in the New York Times
In one scene Mary Poppins's face is covered with soot after going up a chimney
Professor Pollack-Pelzner writes: 'Her face gets covered with soot, but instead of wiping it off, she gamely powders her nose and cheeks and gets even blacker'

One of the funniest ads yesterday in a whole gaggle of depressing ones.  "Implied" a vegan meal of beetloaf would be hellish?  Said it outright.  Totally hilarious, but some didn't think so.

They've got beef! Vegan outrage at Hyundai Super Bowl ad which mocked them and implied that an animal-free dinner party is a hellish experience


Hyundai's Super Bowl ad starring Jason Bateman upset the vegan community
Bateman plays an elevator operator delivering people to unpleasant experiences
The ad put vegan dinner parties on par with root canals, jury duty and 'the talk'
Vegans were quick to vent their displeasure at being mocked on social media 
Many vegans declared they would never drive a Hyundai again
Others shared pictures of vegan meals as a counterpoint to Hyundai's 'beet loaf'
Hyundai quickly did damage control by claiming to 'love vegan food'

Of course you are, when a hat triggers your snowflake meltdowns.

Why Trump's MAGA hats have become a potent symbol of racism

That context cannot be divorced from the image of the MAGA hat any more than the Confederate flag can be divorced from the brutality of chattel slavery. And yet, every Donald Trump apologist will try to say otherwise -- that it's just a hat, or that it is worn by different people for different reasons. How do I know? Because I've listened to similar excuses in my native South Carolina about those who wear or fly the Confederate flag. They do so to honor their ancestors, I've been told, or to embrace Southern heritage, or because they are exercising their First Amendment rights.
The MAGA hat, like the Confederate flag, wouldn't elicit outraged reactions if it were only a piece of cloth that harkened back to bygone days never to be relived. But it isn't. It is a signifier for those who believe America was great during some point in the past they dare not name, knowing if they do, it would reveal a time when it was worse for people of color. When was America "great"? When millions of black people were slaves? When hundreds of thousands of black men were sold to US companies via convict leasing? Maybe during the heart of Jim Crow, the height of lynching, or when black people struggling with drug addictions were viewed as criminals to be controlled, not fellow human beings needing help?

how do you tell if someone is vegan? don't worry, they'll let you know!

Quote
Vegans are beefing with Hyundai over a Super Bowl ad that made fun of vegan dinner parties

But one stop in the otherwise innocuous elevator bit has ruffled some feathers, or at least some 100 percent recycled polyester down equivalents.

“Vegan dinner party,” Bateman says as the doors ding open. “Is that even a thing?”

“We’re having beetloaf — Sergio’s specialty,” says the smiling host as she approaches her guests while extending a purple gelatinous concoction.

Sergio takes a bow while one of the dinner guests retches.

Then the ad pivots to the conceit of the commercial: the heavenly experience of purchasing a Hyundai.

But vegans felt personally attacked. Why should their decision to live a planet-friendly, animal-cruelty-free lifestyle be comparable to a colonoscopy or a root canal or a teenager getting “the talk” and hearing about how “even Grandma’s body changed.”

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the animal rights organization more commonly known as PETA, chided the car company on Twitter.

To tell you the truth if I see someone wearing the red maga cap, I'll immediately think racist...

I would suggest if you want to sell your products to as wide an audience as you can, you should refrain from wearing that hat even if you support trump.
Didn't jordan say he wasn't a dem or repub because they all buy sneakers...


I also don't believe in 0's and 1's for racist or not.  Racism is on a gradient.  and yes trump is high on this gradient, but it doesn't mean he can't do good for the country...and for me.

Racism is on a gradient.

The terminology describing racism needs to be on a gradient also. When snowflakes label someone who hates the black keys on the piano a racist, the term loses all meaning and diminishes the crimes of true racists like Hitler.

So Eye, you only think republicans steal and abuse power? Really,  because that view is the one that is out of touch. And if you don’t see the topic of this thread as pointing out how out of touch little snowflakes are you might just be a little too close to see it.  Like the old saying goes, when you sit down to play poker and you can’t figure out who the sucker is...It’s probably you.

Snowflakes will now reap what they sow... In Virginia they now have a Governor who is going down for "Blackface:" 30 years ago, A Lt. Governor who is going down for #metoo offenses being prosecuted by their own Blasey-Ford lawyers,  and now a State AG going down for...."blackface"....If snowflakes want all these scalps guess what Virginia will get?...A Republican Governor!!!  Like I said in the SCOTUS thread this gangs lack of tolerance is costing them dearly..

Good lord, who cares? I was drinking when I was 15.  If i was prosecuted for every fumbling teenage boob grab from my teen years I would be sitting with Papillon.  The way most of us lost our virginity would today be prosecuted as child molestation.(but i didn't think so).  My generation turned out OK anyway.  Let it go, I understand "different time" but this is ridiculous.  WE ALL have these skeletons, if you don't there something wrong. If this is the new standard then NO ONE will become a judge, cop, politician,  doctor everyone is disqualified, this will backfire

Now Virginia's third-ranking official admits he wore blackface in college – after governor's own race shame and sex attack allegation against lieutenant governor – and if all three Democrats step down a REPUBLICAN would run the state

State Attorney General Mark Herring has urged Ralph Northam to step down
Northam's medical school yearbook page shows a photo of one person in blackface and another in a KKK robe
Herring admitted Wednesday that he, too, wore blackface – in 1980 while he was a college student 
He dressed as a rapper and performed a song at a party while attending college

Herring is third-ranking Virginia official; Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, the number-two, is accused of sexually assaulting a woman at 2004 Democratic convention   
Herring would become governor if Northam and Fairfax step down; all three are Democrats
If they all fall, the Republican speaker of the State Assembly becomes governor; the same man would run impeachment hearings if they take place.

Snowflakes will now reap what they sow... In Virginia they now have a Governor who is going down for "Blackface:" 30 years ago, A Lt. Governor who is going down for #metoo offenses being prosecuted by their own Blasey-Ford lawyers,  and now a State AG going down for...."blackface"....If snowflakes want all these scalps guess what Virginia will get?...A Republican Governor!!!  Like I said in the SCOTUS thread this gangs lack of tolerance is costing them dearly..

Good lord, who cares? I was drinking when I was 15.  If i was prosecuted for every fumbling teenage boob grab from my teen years I would be sitting with Papillon.  The way most of us lost our virginity would today be prosecuted as child molestation.(but i didn't think so).  My generation turned out OK anyway.  Let it go, I understand "different time" but this is ridiculous.  WE ALL have these skeletons, if you don't there something wrong. If this is the new standard then NO ONE will become a judge, cop, politician,  doctor everyone is disqualified, this will backfire

Now Virginia's third-ranking official admits he wore blackface in college – after governor's own race shame and sex attack allegation against lieutenant governor – and if all three Democrats step down a REPUBLICAN would run the state

State Attorney General Mark Herring has urged Ralph Northam to step down
Northam's medical school yearbook page shows a photo of one person in blackface and another in a KKK robe
Herring admitted Wednesday that he, too, wore blackface – in 1980 while he was a college student 
He dressed as a rapper and performed a song at a party while attending college
Northam first apologized, then said it isn't him in the racist photo
Herring is third-ranking Virginia official; Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, the number-two, is accused of sexually assaulting a woman at 2004 Democratic convention

So Eye, you only think republicans steal and abuse power? Really,  because that view is the one that is out of touch. And if you don’t see the topic of this thread as pointing out how out of touch little snowflakes are you might just be a little too close to see it.  Like the old saying goes, when you sit down to play poker and you can’t figure out who the sucker is...It’s probably you.

But your not a true Republican. (You are more like an opportunist that don’t care or don’t have an understanding about the GOP base) Also, your buddy ran a campaign to drain the swamp. But now it’s more like a sewer.

Blackface scandal silences Jimmy Kimmell and Jimmy Fallon as hosts and celebs including Billy Crystal, Judy Garland, Ted Danson and Joy Behar have participated in the racist practice

Racist practice of blackface is again in the news after a photo of Governor Ralph Northam of Virginia and a friend in a KKK robe and minstrelsy makeup emerged
Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmell made no mention of the scandal on their late night shows, with both men having done blackface in the past
Fallon did blackface to portray Chris Rock on Saturday Night Live, while Billy Crystal did the same on the show to play Sammy Davis Jr
Judy Garland (Everybody Sing), Gene Wilder (Silver Streak), Elizabeth Taylor (Il giovane Toscanini) and Robert Downey Jr (Tropic Thunder) did blackface on film
Joni Mitchell showed up in blackface on the cover of her 1977 alum Don Juan's Reckless Daughter, while Ted Danson dressed as a black minstrelsy in 1993
NAACP CEO Derrick Johnson said in a statement: 'Black face in any manner is always racist and never okay'

This is why McCarthy the guy who took over for Paul Ryan took action against Steve King to serve on committees.

Representative Kevin McCarthy, the House Republican leader, on Sunday promised “action” following the latest race-related remarks by Representative Steve King.

“Action will be taken,” McCarthy said Sunday of the Republican on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “I’m having a serious conversation with Congressman Steve King on his future and role in this Republican Party."

McCarthy said the language used by King “has no place in America” and added that he wouldn’t allow such words to continue “to stand and have any role with us.”

GOP Senator Ted Cruz of Texas said King, who was co-chairman of his 2016 presidential campaign, “needs to stop it.”

“What Steve King said was stupid,” Cruz said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday. “It was stupid, it was hurtful, it was wrong."

Cal State Long Beach is sending Prospector Pete packing.

The towering bronze statue that sits in the plaza outside the liberal arts building soon will be relocated to a less prominent place on campus as the university officially moves to retire the mascot that some say represents the state’s history of racism and genocide against Native Americans.

The GOP leadership in the House of Representatives do not promote racist views from my previous article that I posted. Maybe we shouldn’t blame Republicans. Simply point the finger at Morekas for supporting those views.

(I knew about McCarthy’s statement long time ago. I’m not sure Morekas knew about it or maybe he doesn’t care. I was just holding it and see how far Morekas will take this. I’m playing chess while Morekas is playing checkers.) ;)

David Duke Defends Ilhan Omar From Anti-Semitism Accusations

Ilhan Omar had an unlikely defender on Monday amid the debate over whether her remarks about AIPAC were anti-Semitic: David Duke.

Duke, a Holocaust denier and the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, tried to back up Omar’s false claim that AIPAC pays politicians to be pro-Israel. “The most powerful political moneybags in American politics are Zionists,” he tweeted.

Duke previously tried to insert himself into the political conversation last week, when he endorsed the Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard for president. Gabbard quickly denounced him and rejected the endorsement.

I love how Trumpsters and conservative take relatively small things and blow them up while ignoring the the blatant issues within in their party.

A top Virginia Republican has joined a growing list of Democrats under fire for past racially insensitive photos and costumes.

Virginia Senate Majority Leader Tommy Norment was the managing editor of Virginia Military Institute's 1968 yearbook, which includes photos of students wearing blackface and people holding Confederate flags. Racial slurs like the N-word were published in addition to Asian slurs used to identify a student from Thailand.

Eye, I am more than acquainted with Phil/Am struggles, politics and shortcomings. Like I said, my family was instrumental in securing Philippine Independence from the US.  Bit don't kid yourself, like any third world nation the corruption and dirty dealing is overwhelming.  In many ways Independence cut off their nose despite their face.  US rule there had its good points.  Look at the sate of affairs are there now.  Not ideal.

See?  You assume (without knowing anything about a person)  I should have one but I don't. I am American,  Family descent is PI but that changes nothing about me. I am more than comfortable in my "skin".  All these snowflakes are the ones who itch so much wallowing in self-loathing guilt.  I got none of that.

Don’t be ashame of your race. You should learn about the Philippines struggles in America. I took an Asian American course and learned about the struggles of Asians living in America. Things changed after the civil rights movement. So I find it odd that you are against certain people. But in essence if it wasn’t for MLK protest and march across the US. We would probably be segregated. What are your thoughts?

Eye, I never said I was ashamed of it.  My family pretty much runs that joint. My Uncle was Vice President a few years back and my great Grandfather was President After the war.  I just don't "identify" with it when asked where I am from.  I am an American and proud of that and its heritage. You think social castes and racism are bad here?  It's crippling in the Philippines.  We are eons ahead of almost every country in our treatment of minorities and immigrants. One of the biggest lies about us that snowflakes believe and perpetuate.

I love this mentality...WE DON'T NEED TO DO ANYTHING BECAUSE OTHER PLACES ARE WORSE!

I agree that racism is much worse elsewhere in this world but it does not make it right.  Poverty and starving people are worse elsewhere...does not mean that it is okay in the US. 

No, but honestly, it will always be here.  Our current snowflake populous act as if WE are the problem and are somehow worse than all the others.  We never acknowledge that in many ways we are better off that most everyone else.  That our system has done more to advance these issues than any other on earth.  These fools only want to blame and bemoan our nations wickedness.  Its that attitude that tries to legitimize the foolish and trivial complaints pointed out in this thread that perpetuate this self loathing, ungrateful view of our own country,  it's that attitude that sickens me.

Sure...but why should I be satisfied with its shortcomings?  Why shouldn't I try and make it better rather than just saying...hey it's bad elsewhere.  Why wouldn't we want to take continue to try and make this country better...you know like try to form a more perfect union? 

If there are others in this countries that are suffering or being oppressed, why should be satisfied or okay with it?  I mean, if that's the argument, why do we need the Civil Rights movement...I mean minorities had their own bathrooms and we are not as bad as elsewhere.

We have slipped from the main topic of this thread but...don't think I am saying things are perfect, I only point out that relatively, things are much better here, and that is something we should be grateful about.  I also am a realist because I know it will never be perfect so I accept shortcomings as how it will always be.  Striving for perfection is an impossibility so I'm happy to be in a better place than most.  This is one of the reasons I see trivial and inconsequential bitching and media encouragement by legitimizing their yelps as counterproductive.  As I said above, this only distracts from real race issues and blunts the effect when real issues are drowned out by all the shrill noise of the screaming crowd.

Perfection is probably impossible but does not mean we should stop striving for it.  It's literally in the founding documents of this country.

If the yelps for seemingly inconsequential things are counterproductive...you should think about the system and society that we live in in which why such issues are viewed as counterproductive.  I believe you discussed the taking down of CSULB's mascot as an example of triviality.  But why is it trivial?  If it offends people, take it down...it's a made up character.  What is it to you if it is taken down?  Companies change their logos and slogans all the time, are you offended by it?

Changes is often messy and goes too far but the issue is always what is kept and what is being attacked.

No one complained about Prospector Pete.  He is a cartoon character.  Mascots are rallying points for team or school pride and identity. They don't convey deep racial commentary. Look at the Red Skins controversy....When asked if it offended real Indians they overwhelmingly said "NO".  Just a bunch of guilt ridden non-Indians who complained, thinking they were being thoughtful and progressive.  Or the SDSU Aztec,  Who complained? An Aztec?  That would be a good trick since they have been an extinct race for hundreds of years.  These are non issues and most people know it.  That is what i mean by distracting,  it lowers the importance of ALL the arguments and in doing so weakens them.

Poll Finds Most Native Americans Aren't Offended By Redskins Name

Weird that you don't consider the 10% of the Native Americans who are offended to be worthy of consideration.  Again, why should those 10% of NA be discarded for an artificial made up logo/mascot relating to a sports team?  Who is offended when the logo is changed?  If Dan Snyder decided to change the logo on his own because he wanted to sell more merchandise, would that offend you?

If no one was offended, you think that CSULB would have taken him down?  And what if CSULB just didn't want to have it as a mascot anymore?  Why should you be offended by it?

Quote
“The Prospector Pete image grew from our founding in 1949 and reflected our Founding President Pete Peterson’s common references to having struck the gold of education by establishing Long Beach State College,” Conoley said in an email. “President Peterson was absolutely correct; education is precious.”

But, Conoley said, as the university’s diversity grew and more voices were heard “we came to know that the 1849 California gold rush was a time in history when the indigenous peoples of California endured subjugation, violence and threats of genocide.”

Quote
“We have evolved from Prospector Pete,” Conoley said. “We are more than one mascot. We are the Beach. A model of diversity, success and relevance. We are champions. We are informed by our past and prepared to face the future together.”

I mean somehow your opinion or the opinions of a bunch of football fans are more important than these people:

Quote
COX: I think that the debate won't end with this at all. I think that the people who've been working on this for decades are going to continue to fight. Suzan Harjo has been fighting this since the 1960s. I don't think she's going to stop, and nor do I think the Oneida Indian Nation or the National Congress of American Indians - I don't think any of those groups are going to stop. And they've - they've argued, too, that the dictionary defines this as a racial slur. And I've also, you know, heard people argue that, regardless of the number of Native Americans who are offended, they've said that well, isn't it enough that 1 in 10 are offended? That's certainly one of the arguments that they've made. So I don't expect the poll to end the debate.

Edit:  You wrote:

Quote

They can and they have.  Stanford changed its mascot/logo in the 1970s..does anyone care now?  Do Stanford alums cheer for their school any less or feel less pride because of it?  Question is why school pride and identity are of value and why we should defend them if some members of society are offended by it?   

Why is change of such minute scale worthy of any level of angst?

These are non issues and most people know it.  That is what i mean by distracting,  it lowers the importance of ALL the arguments and in doing so weakens them.

It shouldn't...it only does because those oppose to change to both big and small things want to trivialize change in general.  Why should we as a society use those people as the benchmark?  Your reference to it falls exactly into the very thing that you claim to be despise.

Conversely..GOP is now trivializing all racial issues are nothing and that people are just making stuff up.   Even things like voter suppression and revoking the Civil Rights Act..where it's basically "WE DON'T SEE COLOR AND THUS THERE IS NO RACISM".   

So...let's not equate calls for minute changes in culture and society with the systematic efforts of GOP/conservative (and mostly white older individuals) to roll back the clock to the 1950s.

You see we are arguing the trivial.  Say there are Aztecs...which ones complained? Also, who is talking about revoking the civil rights act? Is there a bill the floor to do that?  If so, I am unaware of it.  Arguing about Aztecs and cartoon characterless is pointless and trivial.  People need to buck up.  As i pointed out comedy is dead, it is in fact making fun of peoples shortcomings.  I used to love hearing Filipino comedians, they told jokes and pointed out foibles that only a Filipino would find funny.  I enjoy a good Filipino joke.  Mirrors are very often the best way to laugh and gain insight into ones self.  We are all not perfect or the same, we should celebrate those differences not bemoan them.

2. There’s no way to verify what’s he saying regarding his family. To me it’s just noise. He wants credit for something that doesn’t effect us in any way. (Again we can’t verify it.

The real story behind CSULB has more to do with corporate branding than people being offended by Prospector Pete (a fictional representation that hasn't inflicted any real harm upon anybody.)  In their view, re-branding as 'The Beach' makes the school more attractive to out-of-state transfers and international students, the very people that pay the most in tuition.  (After all, who wouldn't want to go to college at the BEACH?) 

I bet less than 1% of students give a crap about Prospector Pete.  It's a commuter school with an apathetic student body.  It's just that by throwing a bone to the "activists" on campus they get their virtue signalling brownie points and it's a convenient excuse to re-brand at the behest of their corporate fund-raising consultants, who have to earn their fees.  The whole thing is a joke and a pack of lies being perpetuated by the chancellor, IMO.

My Grandfather Galicano Apacible was one of the drafters of the Philippine constituiton and was active in Phillipine indipendance from the United States.  My great uncle was President Osmena, He's the guy walking next to McArthur in the famous I shall return painting.  My Uncle Teofisto Guingona was Vice President for Gloria Mcgapagal from 2001 to 2004.  Along with numerous senators governors and congressman and judges yah, my family has the power chops.  And yah I was against the base pullouts, a lot of people depended on those bases and that was a huge hit to the economy.

Nothing to brag about. I’m sure if US veterans that served in the Pacific region ever reads this. They will shake their heads out of discusss. That tgebUS troops were treated so unfairly when they left the Philippines and your family with others were a key part in it. (You said it not me)

Chancellor Conoley is exactly the snowflake type forward thinking activist I'm talking about.  I question her motives, however, You will ALWAYS find someone who is offended by something. Catering to just a few gripers is no way to run business.  It goes along with the theme of this thread,  at some point the tail cannot wag the dog.  90% of Indians don't care so I'm good with the Redskins.  For the rest, you're right its just a name, root for another team,  I'll bet of the 10%, few were actually part of the complainers.

So why do you care if they change the name?  It's their school...how are you affected in anyway? 

There is no tail and no dog...it's society.  Society change all the time...there is nothing to wag.

The real story behind CSULB has more to do with corporate branding than people being offended by Prospector Pete (a fictional representation that hasn't inflicted any real harm upon anybody.)  In their view, re-branding as 'The Beach' makes the school more attractive to out-of-state transfers and international students, the very people that pay the most in tuition.  (After all, who wouldn't want to go to college at the BEACH?) 

I bet less than 1% of students give a crap about Prospector Pete.  It's a commuter school with an apathetic student body.  It's just that by throwing a bone to the "activists" on campus they get their virtue signalling brownie points and it's a convenient excuse to re-brand at the behest of their corporate fund-raising consultants, who have to earn their fees.  The whole thing is a joke and a pack of lies being perpetuated by the chancellor, IMO.

So why should anyone be worked up over it?

This is a strawman on your part.

It's not...because no one cared about it except for Moreakos, who decried it as some sort symbol of failure on the part of society.

You literally brought up the topic, and morekaos graciously answered your questions  Please point to where he or anybody else was worked up, or admit this is just another strawman on your part.

Haha, another snowflake socialist experiment based on the inherent “goodness”, in it together attitude that fails every time....

Panera Bread's Socialist 'Pay What You Want' Experiment Fails Miserably

The other side of that is that humans tend to be greedy and all about self-preservation. If you offer a customer the option to pay whatever they want, the vast majority of customers are not going to inquire about how much it cost the restaurant to put the food on their plate. Instead, as a general rule, customers are going to approach payment in terms of themselves. Which, to be fair, was Panera Cares' stated desire — you know, raising awareness about food insecurity and providing people the ability to eat regardless of their economic status.

Subic Bay closure was the result of rent increase.  Same with Cam Ranh Bay.  The PH government wanted $825 million/year for Subic Bay naval base lease, and Vietnamese government wanted $200 million/year (from Russia) for Cam Ranh Bay base lease.   In both cases, US and Russian government declined to pay and closed the base.

The Cubans are probably kicking themselves that they signed a perpetual lease for Guantanamo Bay naval base to the US at fixed price.

Every year since Castro's revolution, the US Treasury has sent the Cuban govt. a check for Guantanamo Bay rent per the lease but the Communists have never cashed any of the checks (even though they need the money) as a matter of principle. Cut off your nose to spite your face.

@eyephone: I did answer your question:

That’s what this thread is all about, snowflakes taking meaningless, mundane things and conflating them into racist, phobic issues that butthurt their tender, pampered self image. Not at all hateful but clearly “funny”.  Comedy is truly dead. Does anyone think movies like Airplane, Blazing Saddles, Animal House or Soul Man could ever be made today? Oh hell no, but they are some of the funniest ever created. My kids love those movies.  PC has moved into the realm of bats#*t crazy and That’s sad. I find these extreme stories tragically funny, and that’s too bad

And that's the irony.

eyephone is accusing me of being okay with promoting hate and he doesn't get that is the point of this thread... that some people are so quick to paint something as hate.

There are several things that eyephone says that can be seen as "hateful" but then he says he is just joking. Mmmm... okay.

Notice how eyephone launches into a racist attack against MoreKaos in response to a legitimate criticism of Democrats.  This is so telling.

It's ironic. Calling morekaos racist and then questioning him about his race and how he doesn't identify with it properly.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who notices this.



First of all I never got a response whether you think making blackface and other sketchy posts can be hurtful or can be considered racist. (You like to pick and choose what to respond to.)  If you want to make discriminatory/racially motivated posts then you should look out for me on TI. (I’m not saying you do) Also, what’s wrong talking about his so called “elite” background that saved a country?  ;)

Mind your own business. Honestly you should stop trolling me. It’s not working out for you.

You didn’t respond to my post IHO.

Yes I did, read the post above, morekaos explains what the point of the thread was and I replied to that.

US sends Cuba $4,000 rent for the 45 sq mile lease at Guantanamo Bay, which is a small sum that makes the Cubans feel cheated.  In comparison, in 1983 the Soviets provided Cuban with $4 billion in annual economic aid, in addition to $600 million in military aid.  In retrospect Cuba and Comecon in general was a drain on USSR resources, purchasing sugar from Cuba at subsidized prices and selling oil to them at below market (deja vu with Venezuela oil to Cuba today).

I was in Manila in 2007 looking at real estate around Makati.  It's a nice upscale area dominated by Ayala (somewhat like Irvine Co here).  However the purchasing terms are usually for pre-builds (pay us first and we build) for new.  I saw some resale small condos for $50,000 back then.  Like most places, if you have money you can buy/live in nice upscale area away from poverty, where McDonalds and Starbucks have armed guards.  The people are pretty friendly and not as uptight.  At hotels you can play with the security (bomb sniffing?) dogs.  In the US if you tried to pet the guard dog the handler will yell at you.

HOWEVER, politics in PH can be deadly as many politicians are from clans with long established rivalries.  The political violence in PH can be as deadly as Iraq.

back on topic, folks.  is your sex life suffering because of big daddy trump?

Quote
Has Trump wrecked our sex life? "Post-Trump Sex Disorder" is real, says sex therapist
"Big Mean Sexy Daddy"? Salon turns to Dr. Susan Block for answers to questions you didn't want to ask

Donald Trump has made America's mental health crisis much worse.

Beginning with his presidential campaign and through to his third year as president, the United States has experienced an increase in anxiety, suicide, depression, and other mental health problems. The president of the United States is also a role model. His or her behavior influences the public. And as documented by Dr. James Gilligan in his book "Why Some Politicians are More Dangerous Than Others," Trump's assault on the country's mental health is part of a much larger pattern: the Republican Party and the conservative movement have, for decades, advanced an agenda which has hurt the overall health and well-being of most Americans. LOL

Donald Trump's negative impact on mental health extends to the intimate sexual lives of many people as well.

How has the Age of Trump impacted the American people's collective mental health and also their intimate lives?

It has had a big impact. For some people Trump's campaign and presidency has created a type of PTSD — what I call "Post-Trump Sex Disorder." Trump has created feelings of fear, loathing, and nausea. People just don’t want to have sex. This would mainly be seen with women who are just appalled at how creepy Trump is. He takes what is often a positive male attribute of confidence and pushes it way over the line into a rape-like and rape-entitled kind of arrogance.

The news media is part of the problem as well. The news is full of stories about bad sex. They don’t really like to talk about good sex. When you have this media obsession with bad sex with the usual "all American" war worship and racism, as well as economic disparities and the way that corporations are in control, it really sucks the life out of a person. Never mind how this moment with Donald Trump is also reflected by many men who are dysfunctional and chronically frustrated and who don’t know how to properly approach women, and the lethally unhinged "incels." We also cannot forget all of the "ammosexuals" who substitute their favorite guns for a working penis. LOL

Currently on 100 episode binge "The Rich Son" with Elkie Chong from CLC, and 16 episodes of  "Encounter" with Song Hye-kyo.  I think this is the first drama where Song Hye-kyo is allowed to show wrinkles as she steps into more mature roles.

Vandals spray-paint '#MeToo' on statue of WWII sailor kissing nurse

SARASOTA, Fla. —
Police in Florida want to know who spray-painted ”#MeToo” on the leg of a statue depicting a sailor and a dental assistant kissing at the end of World War II.

Sarasota police said in a news release that officers found the phrase painted in red on the left leg of the woman in the “Unconditional Surrender” statue in Sarasota early Tuesday. The paint covered the length of the nurse’s leg.

It would appear that people ARE making things up according to today's headlines. This is what I mean by this thread,  Conflating non-issues and getting muted reactions led to making up an issue in an attempt to inflame a reaction...initially, it worked.

If you’re gonna be triggered, you should do your homework.

Idiot vandals attack and burn statue of 'General Lee' - but it was a monument dedicated to a WWII hero, not the Confederate commander

A statue of U.S. Army Airborne founder Maj. Gen. William C. Lee was burned
It stood in front of the William C. Lee Airborne Museum in Dunn, North Carolina
Museum employees suspect that vandals mistook it for Confederate leader Robert. E Lee,  who shares the same last name but no other connection
Vandals poured flammable liquid on it and set it on fire on February 14
The Dunn Police Department are investigating the incident and there is an $1,000 reward for any information that could lead to arrests
The museum says it'll take hundreds of dollars to repair the damaged statue

He brought up his family not me. I never insulted his family. I just mentioned that the story gets better and better every time he tells it. Also, I mentioned several times it could be true or not. (We don’t know) Come on if your family was well connected and super elite like he said, would you leave the country?

I attacked his race? (Not at all) He attacked his family’s country by putting it down. My gosh, no one picked that up. Since I travel, I’ve been there before not bad as he mentioned. Almost everything is in English and the food is really reasonably priced.

It’s not okay to attack people of color or make fun of them by his posts. I will not tolerate people trying to put down a race or make fun of them. That’s not how we roll on TI.

“I believe in white supremacy,” he said, and spoke harshly about African Americans, saying, “We can’t all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks.”

“I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people,” he said.

“I don’t feel guilty about the fact that five or 10 generations ago these people were slaves,” he said. “Now, I’m not condoning slavery. It’s just a fact of life, like the kid who gets infantile paralysis and has to wear braces so he can’t play football with the rest of us.”

John Wayne's interview:

Wayne was also asked about educator/activist Angela Davis and discrimination. He responded, “With a lot of blacks, there’s quite a bit of resentment along with their dissent, and possibly rightfully so. But we can’t all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks. I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people.”

Lewis then shot back at Wayne, asking if the actor was equipped to judge “which blacks are irresponsible and which of their leaders inexperienced.” Wayne responded, “It’s not judgment. The academic community has developed certain tests that determine whether the blacks are sufficiently equipped scholastically. But some blacks have tried to force the issue and enter college when they haven’t passed the tests and don’t have the requisite background.”

“I don’t know why people insist that blacks have been forbidden their right to go to school,” continued Wayne. “They were allowed in public schools wherever I’ve been. Even if they don’t have the proper credentials for college, there are courses to help them become eligible. But if they aren’t academically ready for the step, I don’t think they should be allowed in. Otherwise, the academic society is brought down to the lowest common denominator.

“… There has to be a standard. I don’t feel guilty about the fact that five or 10 generations ago these people were slaves. Now, I’m not condoning slavery. It’s just a fact of life, like the kid who gets infantile paralysis and has to wear braces so he can’t play football with the rest of us. I will say this, though: I think any black who can compete with a white today can get a better break than a white man. I wish they’d tell me where in the world they have it better than right here in America.”

Wayne also spoke harshly about Native Americans when asked if he felt any empathy for them, considering they played an essential role in his films.

“I don’t feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them if that’s what you’re asking,” said Wayne. "Our so-called stealing of this country from them was just a matter of survival. They were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves… Look, I’m sure there have been inequalities. If those inequalities are presently affecting any of the Indians now alive, they have a right to a court hearing. But what happened 100 years ago in our country can’t be blamed on us today.”



When John Wayne's comments on Native Americans caused a controversy, he responded:

“I can’t imagine any Indian,” Wayne said in his defense, “not realizing that over the past forty years I’ve done more to give them human dignity and a fine image on the screen than anyone else who has ever worked in pictures.” “Indians were part of our history,” he elaborated, “I have never shown the Indians on the screen as anything but courageous and with great human dignity.”

To substantiate his point, Wayne used some of his Westerns as examples: “My Indian in Hondo” was a great guy, my Indian in Fort Apache” was a great guy. I assume the Indians know that I have a great deal of respect for them.”

Stop being so butt hurt about something that was said 50 years ago by a guy who isn't around to defend himself.  Leave the name and five years from now no one will remember. Where is the cutoff for politically incorrect thought?  I seem to recall Bill, Hillary and Barack all loving a border wall and hating in illegals.  They also were not enamored with same sex marriage until they were forced to "evolve" by polling.  Quit trying to bury the past, it is what it is, move on.  As you said this stuff is worthless and irrelevant to even bring up.

IMO John Wayne is more hegemonic than racist.  He doesn't seem to think that whites are inherently superior, and that blacks can attain success and leadership positions through effort and education.  In contrast Richard Lynn is more racist than hegemonic, as he advocates whites with higher IQ is inherently superior, but due to low birth rate it's necessary for predominantly white states to secede from the Union, in effort to preserve a racially homogeneous white civilization.

IHO - it is not "different" - is it different quotes from the same interview

Well, the out of context makes it look different:

Compare this:

Quote
“I believe in white supremacy,” he said, and spoke harshly about African Americans, saying, “We can’t all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks.”

To this:

Quote
Wayne was also asked about educator/activist Angela Davis and discrimination. He responded, “With a lot of blacks, there’s quite a bit of resentment along with their dissent, and possibly rightfully so. But we can’t all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks. I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people.”

The first implies "white supremacy" in general, the second seems to be more directed towards the imbalance in education.

Quote
John Wayne in 1971 , well after the civil rights movement --

“I believe in white supremacy,” he said, and spoke harshly about African Americans, saying, “We can’t all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks.”

“I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people,” he said.

Here is the actual text, with context from the question he was actually asked and follow up:

Quote
PLAYBOY: Angela Davis claims that those who would revoke her teaching credentials
on ideological grounds are actually discriminating against her because she's black. Do
you think there's any truth in that?
WAYNE: With a lot of blacks, there's quite a bit of resentment along with their dissent,
and possibly rightfully so. But we can't all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn
everything over to the leadership of the blacks. I believe in white supremacy until the
blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don't believe in giving authority and
positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people.

PLAYBOY: Are you equipped to judge which blacks are irresponsible and which of their
leaders inexperienced?
WAYNE: It's not my judgment. The academic community has developed certain tests
that determine whether the blacks are sufficiently equipped scholastically. But some
blacks have tried to force the issue and enter college when they haven't passed the tests
and don't have the requisite background.

PLAYBOY: How do they get that background?
WAYNE: By going to school. I don't know why people insist that blacks have been
forbidden their right to go to school. They were allowed in public schools wherever I've
been. Even if they don't have the proper credentials for college, there are courses to help
them become eligible. But if they aren't academically ready for that step, I don't think
they should be allowed in. Otherwise, the academic society is brought down to the lowest
common denominator.

PLAYBOY: But isn't it true that we're never likely to rectify the inequities in our
educational system until some sort of remedial education is given to disadvantaged
minority groups?
WAYNE: What good would it do to register anybody in a class of higher algebra or
calculus if they haven't learned to count? There has to be a standard. I don't feel guilty
about the fact that five or 10 generations ago these people were slaves. Now, I'm not
condoning slavery. It's just a fact of life, like the kid who gets infantile paralysis and has
to wear braces so he can't play football with the rest of us. I will say this, though: I think
any black who can compete with a white today can get a better break than a white man. I
wish they'd tell me where in the world they have it better than right here in America.

Now, yes, you can argue there is racism in his comments (and he probably was), but the context gives you more insight on what he was actually saying and the subject at hand which was education and opportunity. By cutting out those parts, what you posted isn't a fair assessment of what was said.

As an example, if I use the same tactic and cut out certain parts, I can make this interview look favorable:

<<

In 1971, when asked about the inequality in education and opportunity for blacks, Wayne spoke favorably about the potential of African Americans:

"I think any black who can compete with a white today can get a better break than a white man."

>>

Now, if you don't see the difference, then I don't think there is any more I can say.

Maybe you should follow the “new” GOP leader Kevin McCarthy. 

“CNN article: Steve King removed from committee assignments following racist comments

McCarthy announced that the House Republican Steering Committee -- which oversees committee assignments -- met Monday night and made a decision that King "will not be serving on committees in this Congress."

The move is just the latest reaction to King's comments, which have outraged both sides of the aisle, and spurred calls for more actions against the conservative Iowa congressman, who has a lengthy history of incendiary comments related to race and immigration. Earlier Monday, a pair of the Senate's most high-profile Republicans sharply condemned King, the highest ranking GOP officials to publicly rebuke King after comments he made to The New York Times that were sympathetic to white supremacists.”

Right there. You previously acknowledged that people find it offensive.

Can you not read? This isn't a thread to promote racism or hate, this is a thread that points out how easily people turn things into racism or hate.

But I find it offensive and I’m sure other people do. Got it?

That's fine but I think you are being selective here because of who posted this thread.

Your buddy BTB posted obvious racist and sexist remarks of his own origin (not article links) and I don't remember you being offended at him.

Also, why do you find this thread offensive but calling people a b-word is not?

You say it’s not a thread that promotes hate. But Morekas continuously posts about blackfaces and other questionable topics. IHo say that to a brother playing basketball and tell me what happens. (But don’t blame me if something happens. Use your own judgement.) You previously mentioned you play basketball on weekends or something.

I can boil it down to this

I don’t  think morekaos even read the actual interview before posting

He basically thought it will be a quick post making fun of liberals for being too sensitive , he will get a quick thank you or two from the usual MAGA circle jerk crowd and everyone will move on ...

IHO just stepping in because he has to show he is “smart” and “nuanced “ and he is also a Long time supporter of Kaos

Now as we have quickly exposed here — there is no “context” which makes John Wayne’s comments any less racist than what obviously comes to mind when you read or hear the words “white supremacy “

Rather than acknowledge and course correct and then move on, people have dug in their heels.  This is classic OC Republican lens on this John Wayne  is a “good old guy” in many people s traditional views , which are calcified and hard to change

Just don’t pretend it is not what it obviously is — and hide behind “context “ .

Ok — so now you have the full transcript

What is a “fair assessment”  of what he said ?  Racist or not ?

Racist, probably... but remember the time, in 1971, many people were like that, probably including people who are close to you.

"Fair assessment"... I don't agree... it's not like he said those things without provocation. He was asked questions regarding a particular subject matter and his answer was directed towards that... education, leadership and opportunity.

Today, if a well-known actor were to say those same things, Twitter would explode and he would never work again, but again, you have to properly frame this with context and timeline.

For example... many years ago... the word "gay" was often used to describe something with negative connotation, the same thing with the word "retard". If you were to use those words today, it would cause an uproar. But if I were to find some recording of you using that word back in the 70s... could I call you out on it today?

Again, not a commentary on if John Wayne was racist... or if I am racist (which someone seems to contend) but just on how presentation of words, context and time can change things or even make people react differently (which is sort of on subject of this thread).

I can boil it down to this

I don’t  think morekaos even read the actual interview before posting

He basically thought it will be a quick post making fun of liberals for being too sensitive , he will get a quick thank you or two from the usual MAGA circle jerk crowd and everyone will move on ...

IHO just stepping in because he has to show he is “smart” and “nuanced “ and he is also a Long time supporter of Kaos

Now as we have quickly exposed here — there is no “context” which makes John Wayne’s comments any less racist than what obviously comes to mind when you read or hear the words “white supremacy “

Rather than acknowledge and course correct and then move on, people have dug in their heels.  This is classic OC Republican lens on this John Wayne  is a “good old guy” in many people s traditional views , which are calcified and hard to change

Just don’t pretend it is not what it obviously is — and hide behind “context “ .

Again, I think this is an unfair assessment of what I was saying.

When I originally read your post, I was shocked by his comments... I had not read the interview. But then when momopi posted the fuller version (why did momopi do that?) and now when I read the larger interview as a whole... I'm not as shocked because I have to put myself in the same context and time frame.

This is not a support of Republicans, political leanings or morekaos (who I have had disagreements with... Texas vs Cali thread), it was a comment on my reaction to your post.

Was that your summation of the interview or was that someone else's quotes? Because the way it was said/framed was strong. If that's your opinion, that's fine, but please don't try to use politics, member support or a desire for me to look smart as a reason to discount what I said. We all have the same space here to discuss things and mine was merely an observation of what you said vs what was actually said and my reaction.

I really don't have an opinion on John Wayne as I don't know much about him.

I get what IHO is saying.  Fortune didn't post the full interview from John Wayne.  The full interview is not as bad as the snippet Fortune posted, so it looks like Fortune has an agenda to make John Wayne look more racist than he actually is.

So fortunes credibility takes a hit for not posting the whole interview. 

I thought of this before momo posted the full interview with John, so the damage was already done.

 You forget the origin of this whole fracas which began with kaos posting a “snowflake” argument regarding John Wayne name change .  How credible was that argument ?

After reading the whole interview do you still think  John Wayne deserves his name on an airport ?

I have posted the full link of John Wayne’s interview which is actually even longer than what was pasted on screen . John Wayne comes off as a racist in my book , maybe your interpretation is different .

This is 1971 we are taking about , not 1951 or 1931 . A lot had happened by this time to make people realize their follies of the past when it came to discrimination

John Wayne is not the least bit apologetic and actually wears his views proudly . But —

“White supremacy “ is not open to context and misrepresentation. If people think this is not racist enough , then I guess I can say it says a lot about people’s own viewpoints than the supposed “credibility “ .

Your posts make zero sense.

I've responded to your questions in this thread. How am I hiding from you when I address you directly?

You are the one who addresses me in comments not even directed at you, so I respond in kind.

And what does calling me lil whatever achieve? Name calling is a tactic for someone who can't come up with anything better... as is making false accusations. You're just digging a deeper hole for yourself... you should stop while you are behind.

Can you not read? This isn't a thread to promote racism or hate, this is a thread that points out how easily people turn things into racism or hate.

But I find it offensive and I’m sure other people do. Got it?

That's fine but I think you are being selective here because of who posted this thread.

Your buddy BTB posted obvious racist and sexist remarks of his own origin (not article links) and I don't remember you being offended at him.

Also, why do you find this thread offensive but calling people a b-word is not?

You say it’s not a thread that promotes hate. But Morekas continuously posts about blackfaces and other questionable topics. IHo say that to a brother playing basketball and tell me what happens. (But don’t blame me if something happens. Use your own judgement.) You previously mentioned you play basketball on weekends or something.

Again, that's now what I was commenting on. I was not saying he deserves it or not, I was just saying that your post made the interview seem different than what it was.

Quote
I have posted the full link of John Wayne’s interview which is actually even longer than what was pasted on screen . John Wayne comes off as a racist in my book , maybe your interpretation is different .

Again, I do agree that he comes off as racist. But, at the same time, I'm trying to add context to it because there is some truth to what he is saying. Does that mean I'm racist? Or that I'm trying to be fair in my assessment of comments made almost 50 years ago.

Quote
This is 1971 we are taking about , not 1951 or 1931 . A lot had happened by this time to make people realize their follies of the past when it came to discrimination

Really? 1971 is still a time when being PC wasn't even a thing. Discrimination was high during this time or why else would the interview touch on that subject?

Quote

“White supremacy “ is not open to context and misrepresentation. If people think this is not racist enough , then I guess I can say it says a lot about people’s own viewpoints than the supposed “credibility “ . 

Devil's advocate... could it be he was using it as a reference to "supremacy" as to the percentage of whites in college and in business, not the term "white supremacy" as we know it now?

And I could be wrong, but again, I'm trying to use time frame and context. Today we obviously see it as racist, but in 1971, what kind of backlash did he get for this interview? If it wasn't enough to prevent the County Board of Supervisors from naming the airport after him in 1979, that might give you an idea of the climate back then.

I am not posting articles about “black face” and other issues( some having nothing to do with race) because I am supporting the view.  I am posting them to point out the stupidity of bringing up decades old or currently irrelevant issues as if they were said yesterday and using those issues to cry and bemoan current victimization by people who had little or nothing to do with the original quote or incident....in other words, mountains out of mole hills.

Socialism destroys prom: School officials ban kids from riding in limos because everyone can’t afford it

Back in the day, some kids used to enjoy saving up enough money through the semester so they could rent a lavish limo for their year-end senior prom. But thanks to the socialist mindset of one New Jersey school’s officials, this tradition is no more.

According to Trenton radio station WKXW, officials at Lakeland Regional High School made a decision this year to ban students from driving to their prom or renting a limo. Instead, every student must pay $15 to be driven to the prom at Rockleigh Country Club on a chaperoned bus.

I thought he’s technical and the terms need to correct. But how come when I address if he hears someone say Dominos. He doesn’t correct them and say hey it’s called Dominos Pizza. You know why because it’s not racial.

So it’s not about correctness. He’s losing on a lot of arguments. Let’s make a thread and drop racist things. This one he think he’s winning, but in actuality it shows how he’s off the rails. Living in the past and can’t get back to reality.

@eyephone: Equating basketball with black people is sort of racist... just sayin'.

Is it? people on this forum sure have no problem equating tutoring to Asian baggage.  :-X

Sure, you can draw a similarity there. But I don't see eyephone getting offended at those posts.

It's ironic he can make a post assuming that the people I play basketball with are "brothers".

Brothers can mean like Asian brothers or other brothers.

I know their are Asians and other races playing basketball at the outdoor parks in Irvine.

O rly?

So that's your spin now?

This is what you said:

But Morekas continuously posts about blackfaces and other questionable topics. IHo say that to a brother playing basketball and tell me what happens. (But don’t blame me if something happens. Use your own judgement.) You previously mentioned you play basketball on weekends or something.

So are you claiming that you didn't mean "brother" as in African American? If you meant "Asian" then why would you tell me:

Let me guess you won’t show up with a black face next time you play basketball. Do you think they might find that offensive?

One more thing. If you do think it’s okay. Maybe you should get checked out and let the local police know your going to do that. Maybe they can intervene or something. I don’t know who you are. So I can’t help you out. (Again don’t blame me - for legal purposes)

The point of my post it to show a reasonable person would not do that.

“Fox News HAD the story of Trump's hush money payoffs to Stormy Daniels BEFORE the election but killed it because the reporter said she was told, "Good reporting Kiddo, but Rupert Murdoch wants Donald Trump to win. So set it aside." Reporter sued, is bound by an NDA.”

So now Dr. Seuss is racist? Is anyone safe from the snowflake SJW?

Dr. Seuss Books Like Horton Hears a Who! Branded Racist and Problematic in New Study

As Dr. Seuss’ birthday approaches on March 2, a new study argues that many of the author’s classic children’s books are racist and problematic — and only two percent of his characters represent people of color.

“[This study reveals] how racism spans across the entire Seuss collection, while debunking myths about how books like Horton Hears a Who! and The Sneetches can be used to promote tolerance, anti-bias, or anti-racism,” Katie Ishizuka and Ramón Stephens write in their February 2019 report, “The Cat is Out of the Bag: Orientalism, AntiBlackness, and White Supremacy in Dr. Seuss’ s Children’s Books,” as part of St. Catherine University’s Research on Diversity in Youth Literature.

The House will vote Thursday on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and white supremacy after internecine war developed among Democrats over comments from Omar.

Nor will Omar's name be specifically mentioned, which some Democrats had argued for while the congresswoman's defenders countered that would require a resolution any time a lawmaker said or tweeted something offensive. 

'One resolution is not mentioning her name because it's not about her,' Pelosi noted.

Democrats had battled over the wording of the resolution - should it directly refer to Omar and anti-semitism or should it be broadened to condemn all hate speech.

S.C. MAYOR SAYS ‘YELLOW STICKY SUBSTANCE’ ON HER CAR WAS SPRAYED BY VANDALS, POLICE SAY IT’S JUST POLLEN

The mayor of a South Carolina town believed she was the target of a hate crime after cars belonging to her and her husband were dusted with a mysterious, “yellow, sticky substance.”

Local and state police investigated the claims made by Lamar Mayor Darnell Byrd McPherson, who reported that on February 7 at 10 p.m. local time, someone sprayed her 2017 Symphony Silver Hyundai Elantra Sport and her husband’s soft-top 1998 Buick Roadmaster with a residue outside of their home.

The material, she remembered, “got in all of the grooves” of her husband’s gray sedan.

The mayor had recently returned to her home from a meeting in the larger city of Hartsville, about 22 miles north of Lamar.

“My husband went out to the car to get some things out of the garage,” she told Newsweek. “He says, ‘Somebody’s painted your car!’”

She explained in the interview with Newsweek that there were no words or symbols drawn on the cars. The cars were parked in the street near the end of the couple's driveway, a block and a half from Lamar’s downtown.

“To me that was the message,” she said.

Darlington County Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Robby Kilgo explained that an investigation was opened to determine what the substance was on both cars.

“We found it to be pollen,” Kilgo explained in an interview with Newsweek.

Black college lacrosse player, 21, is arrested for spraying N-word and swastika graffiti targeting HIMSELF and other minority students in two incidents that terrorized the campus

Fynn Ajani Arthur, 21, was charged with two counts of malicious destruction of property on Thursday night in Baltimore County, Maryland
He allegedly scrawled swastikas, the letters 'KKK' and names of specific individuals - including himself- in a Goucher College dorm twice last month
Goucher officials condemned Arthur's actions and banned him from campus
Minority students say the graffiti incidents are only a symptom of a larger race problem on the campus in Towson

So Air pollution is clearly not equal...you people need to breathe more pollution to even things out!!...Pollution in-equality?

Study finds a race gap in air pollution — whites largely cause it; blacks and Hispanics breathe it

The air that Americans breathe isn't equal.

Blacks and Hispanics disproportionately breathe air that's been polluted by non-Hispanic whites, according to a study. This new research quantifies for the first time the racial gap between who causes air pollution – and who breathes it.

"Pollution is disproportionately caused by whites, but disproportionately inhaled by black and Hispanic minorities," the study said.

Poor air quality remains the largest environmental health risk in the United States, the study warns. In fact, with 100,000 deaths per year, more Americans die from air pollution than car crashes and murders combined.

“Even though minorities are contributing less to the overall problem of air pollution, they are affected by it more,” said study co-author Jason Hill, an engineering professor at the University of Minnesota, who is white. “Is it fair (that) I create more pollution and somebody else is disproportionately affected by it?”

Hill said that while the air in the U.S. has gotten cleaner in the past decade, pollution inequity has remained stubbornly high.

So you think this abstract is worth further investigation?...its absurd, pointless and wasteful.  Like almost all the little snowflake, butt hurt, meaningless, nag, superficial, self victimization issues brought up by them.  So much so as to be funny.  You need to find your sense of irony and humor.

Abstract
Fine particulate matter (PM2.5) air pollution exposure is the largest environmental health risk factor in the United States. Here, we link PM2.5 exposure to the human activities responsible for PM2.5 pollution. We use these results to explore “pollution inequity”: the difference between the environmental health damage caused by a racial–ethnic group and the damage that group experiences. We show that, in the United States, PM2.5 exposure is disproportionately caused by consumption of goods and services mainly by the non-Hispanic white majority, but disproportionately inhaled by black and Hispanic minorities. On average, non-Hispanic whites experience a “pollution advantage”: They experience ∼17% less air pollution exposure than is caused by their consumption. Blacks and Hispanics on average bear a “pollution burden” of 56% and 63% excess exposure, respectively, relative to the exposure caused by their consumption. The total disparity is caused as much by how much people consume as by how much pollution they breathe. Differences in the types of goods and services consumed by each group are less important. PM2.5 exposures declined ∼50% during 2002–2015 for all three racial–ethnic groups, but pollution inequity has remained high.

The Weird World of Vegan YouTube Stars Is Imploding

Last Sunday, a five-second video clip of vegan YouTuber Yovana Mendoza single-handedly brought down the luminous 28-year-old’s entire career. In it, you can see the raw food advocate, who goes by the name “Rawvana,” smiling at a restaurant in Bali as she prepares to tuck into her meal. But in an instant, the health guru’s face changes, as she realizes her friend’s camera is trained on her plate. She moves to cover it, but it’s too late. Internet sleuths watching the 10-minute vlog later would quickly deduce what Mendoza was trying to hide: a piece of fish.


“I felt like someone had died,” Mendoza told The Daily Beast. “It was one of the worst days of my life.”

In addition to showing how many ways you can repurpose the word “fish,” the incident brought another revelation to the surface: The vegan YouTube community is crumbling.

Manayunk Woman Says Arsonist Torched Her Car Because Cardboard Cutout of Trump Was Inside

A woman says a cardboard cutout of Donald Trump inside her car caused an arsonist to target her vehicle in Philadelphia’s Manayunk neighborhood early Monday morning.

Police responded to the 4200 block of Pechin Street around 3 a.m. for a report of a vehicle on fire. When they arrived they found 65-year-old Laurie Livingston’s 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier fully engulfed in flames. The Fire Marshal ruled the incident an arson.

Livingston said her car had been vandalized three times before within the past five months. During those incidents, the tires were slashed and the windshield was broken. But while she's unsure why she was targeted those previous times, she believes the latest incident was because of a cardboard cutout of President Trump that was in the front seat of her car.

“I put Donald Trump and I don’t care,” she said. "I voted for him and I have the right to say what I want to say and then last night at 3 o'clock it blew up.”

US sends Cuba $4,000 rent for the 45 sq mile lease at Guantanamo Bay, which is a small sum that makes the Cubans feel cheated.  In comparison, in 1983 the Soviets provided Cuban with $4 billion in annual economic aid, in addition to $600 million in military aid.  In retrospect Cuba and Comecon in general was a drain on USSR resources, purchasing sugar from Cuba at subsidized prices and selling oil to them at below market (deja vu with Venezuela oil to Cuba today).

I was in Manila in 2007 looking at real estate around Makati.  It's a nice upscale area dominated by Ayala (somewhat like Irvine Co here).  However the purchasing terms are usually for pre-builds (pay us first and we build) for new.  I saw some resale small condos for $50,000 back then.  Like most places, if you have money you can buy/live in nice upscale area away from poverty, where McDonalds and Starbucks have armed guards.  The people are pretty friendly and not as uptight.  At hotels you can play with the security (bomb sniffing?) dogs.  In the US if you tried to pet the guard dog the handler will yell at you.

HOWEVER, politics in PH can be deadly as many politicians are from clans with long established rivalries.  The political violence in PH can be as deadly as Iraq.


As I was reviewing the Snowflake thread I came across momopi’s post. So it contradicts Morekas statement about the Philippines. (where his parents are from, but not him)
I’m glad that you made that statement. To give a better picture of the Philippines and is not as bad as Morekas previously stated. For the record, I previously gave a favorable review of the Philippines.

This is not including the conversation just topics. I feel it’s offensive and can be hurtful. TI was never like this before.

So we can't make posts pointing out how nonsensical articles/issues are on other sites? That is the point of this thread. It's not to be racist but to call out how some people overreact and call things racist/homophobic/sexist/[insert hot button adjective here]. Do you see the irony?

What about all those posts that BTB would post about Asians? Or about women? Again, I think you are using a filter here because you have an issue with morekaos.

And again, your assumption that the guys I play basketball with are black is probably more questionable.

1. I already addressed the posts by btb. (wearing a mask, birth houses, massage places) Is that offensive?
2. Playing basketball with brothers. (It can mean anything. There are a lot of people that say, “What up bro!” You took it the wrong way.) Like I previously stated to you. If you can’t say it or do it. Then don’t say it at all.
3. Over react? Do you think hammering the same topic over ten times is over the top?

But let's get back to the topic.

So the term "snowflake" as defined by Urban Dictionary:

Quote
Began being used extensively as a putdown for someone, usually on the political left, who is easily offended or felt they needed a "safe space" away from the harsh realities of the world, but now has morphed into a general putdown for anyone that complains about any subject.

So really, aren't there snowflakes on both sides of the aisle?

I said Trojan Realtor does a great not getting involved in questionable subjects on TI since he does Business on TI. There’s nothing wrong with that. It just makes business sense. You don’t need an MBa or PHD to figure that out.

Also, I honestly don’t care if other members think his posts are racist or offensive. People don’t want to waste their time.

The way I see it. If you continuously make posts that are offensive to a certain race. Then there’s a problem and I will not put up with that crap.

University campus suspends all fraternity, sorority social activities

The University of Texas at Arlington has suspended all social activities of Greek organizations due to "concerns regarding the culture of the fraternal community," the school said Wednesday.

The university, which has about 28,000 undergraduates among its more than 40,000 students, began the suspension of social activities of fraternities and sororities Monday so that it can study their communities' culture, the university's chief spokesperson said in a statement.

“During this pause, the University will assemble a campus Fraternity and Sorority Life Task Force to review the state of affairs within the fraternity and sorority community and to recommend steps to effect a positive shift in the community culture," the statement said.

SA senator reignites effort to change Colonials nickname

Students launched a petition last spring calling on the University to switch the Colonials nickname to something less offensive, like GW’s unofficial mascot, the hippo.

Dane Kennedy, a history and international affairs professor who will sit on the panel, said he wants to inform students about the racial connotations of colonialism, given that the word often refers to a group of white people oppressing minority groups, like Native or African Americans.

You keep editing your posts so I'm never sure what you are actually saying.

I'll avoid you as long as you stop accusing members of being racist or attacking their personal/business lives.

I'll avoid you as long as you stop accusing me of things you don't have proof of.

I'm not sure what you are referring to about me getting punked or raising the white flag, and if that happened... who cares?

Again, false accusations.

You still have not provided enough proof for this. When I post on TI, I don't reference personal information, quote PMs, call out inadequacies in their profession, call them the b-word, try to get other members to find dirt on me, or challenge them to an in-person fist fight, I discuss the topics and their posts... which is what we all should do.

And you don't see the irony... all these things you accuse me of, you are actually doing to morekaos and SGIP... behind the guise of "I'm offended"... which by the way, is the topic of this thread.

Mollie Hemingway: Focusing on potential avocado shortage from border shutdown proves how 'unserious' media is

Mollie Hemingway, Fox News Contributor and senior editor at "The Federalist," argued media concern over a potential avocado crisis if President Trump shuts down the Mexico border shows “how unserious” the media is about the “very big issue.”

According to the latest data from the United States Department of Agriculture, about half of all imported U.S. vegetables and 40 percent of imported fruit are grown in Mexico. Americans would run out of avocados in three weeks if imports from Mexico were stopped.

“Some people when they look at our border crisis they’re worried about rule of law, they’re worried about national sovereignty, they’re worried about a humanitarian crisis or the drugs that are flowing over the border and those are very serious concerns,” Hemingway said on Fox & Friends Wednesday.

“Also, the economic impact from a possible shutdown is serious, but when the media focuses on whether they are going to get their breakfast with avocado toast instead of these bigger pressing issues, it just shows how unserious they are of this very big issue.”

You should be careful here, especially when it comes to Tyler. That member has threatened violence on a member here even though he thought that member was a female and my wife. Tyler has also gone so far as to ask other members who know me personally about my personal information and actually tried to expose that here. When he left he asked the admin to delete all his posts (which included his threats of violence) but then he came back to bad mouth TI, attack other members, re-up his threats with me and tried to post personal details about me.

Just the fact that you are conversing with Tyler makes me wonder if you are digging for details on me or any other members, and if so, this is where you are crossing the line.

You keep accusing me so I have to respond.

This is not my side of the story, this is what happened. Luckily, test quoted Tyler's post so even though he had the admin delete them (which is the only member that I know of who actually had the admin do this for them), it's still on TI.

I bolded the part where he threatened test:

You dumb b!tch, anyone is free to comment on anything around here.  That's why its a forum, get it?

You are the biggest source of misinformation on here, since you have no work experience in any of the topics - yet you insist on arguing with people who do have experience.

What is the biggest construction project your company worked on - a lego playset?  How much experience do you have with public policy - you watched CSPAN?  How many mortgages loans have you made - houses on Baltic Avenue and hotels on Park Place?  How many businesses have you run - lemonade stands? How many square feet of interior space have you designed - a doll house for the kids?
Test, if you want to act like a man and talk trash to me, come meet me somewhere and see what happens.



Ohhhh, I'm keeping a screenshot of this one.


You were even posting in that thread but I guess you forgot.

There was another post where he challenged another member (or maybe test again) to a parking lot (garage?) fight but I guess nobody quoted it.

And I don't think he quit because of just me, he got into it with a few members here (you can search for that yourself) where he insulted their jobs/lives/etc. I actually liked Tyler because he had knowledge of almost everything... but he would deride other members. I even posted a thread about how smart he is. And from what I hear, in real life he's actually an okay guy... it's just the Internet (esp discussion forums) can bring out the bad side in people.

Man wearing ‘MAGA’ hat says woman berated him at California Starbucks for supporting Trump

A 74-year-old man said a woman berated and called him a racist at a California Starbucks on Monday after she spotted him wearing a “Make American Great Again” hat in support of President Trump.

The man, who was identified as Victor, told KTVU he was wearing the iconic red hat when the woman began yelling at him outside the coffee shop in Palo Alto.

“This woman came over and not only started screaming at me, she turned to the Starbucks audience and said, ‘Hey, everybody come here! This guy's a racist! This guy hates brown people!’” Victor told the news station.

Victor, who is Jewish, also told other news outlets that the woman called him a Nazi.

The woman, who later identified herself as Rebecca Mankey, admitted in a lengthy Facebook post that she yelled at Victor and called for anyone who spotted the 74-year-old wearing the “MAGA” hat to “please confront him.”

“I yelled at him. Called the entire Starbucks to order and yelled at him more about how it’s not okay to hate brown people…I called him more names and told him to call the police…He wouldn’t call the police so I called him a wimp, He got his stuff together to leave. I followed him to the register while he complained about me,” read the post on Mankey’s page, which has since been deactivated. “Then chased him out of Starbucks yelling at him to get the f--- out of my town.”

She later wrote in a comment that she was “going to publicly shame him in town and try to get him fired and kicked out of every club he is in.”

Palo Alto police said both parties did not file a report on the incident. Mankey, however, was fired from her job at Gryphon Strings, a guitar sales and repair shop, after the store owner was made aware of the altercation.

Victor said those berating people for wearing the red hat have “Trump derangement syndrome.”

“It’s called Trump derangement syndrome: people acting crazy. If you can’t tell the difference between a hat that says ‘Make America Great Again’ and a Nazi helmet or a Ku Klux Klan hat, I’d say you’re deranged,” Victor said.

Oh nooooo...streaming music is killing the planet!!! That just can't be...it looked so sustainable....bahahahahahah!

Streaming music is driving up harmful emissions, according to study

Streaming music has unintended environmental consequences, a new study says.

Although the shift from physical media to streaming has reduced cost and plastic pollution, using services like Spotify and Apple Music is driving up carbon emissions and contributing to climate change, a recent study says.

The Cost of Music is a joint venture between the University of Glasgow and the University of Oslo, and warns that the energy used to store and stream digital media is just as harmful for the environment as plastic waste.

The study looked at the costs of physical media over the past century, adjusted for inflation, and set that against changing average salaries and the average amount of a person’s weekly salary that would go towards paying for music across that period.

The study found that while music has never been cheaper to own – a vinyl record in 1977 cost an average of $28.55 in today’s money while a digital download in 2013 cost $11.11 – the amount people were willing to spend on music in those years dropped from 4.83% of their salary a week to 1.22%.

While this has reduced the amount of plastic wasted from CD cases, vinyl and other physical media, the amount being paid to musicians has dropped, and emissions related to the recorded music industry is believed to have increased.

Although the amount of plastics consumed by the industry dropped to 8 million kilograms in 2016 from a high of 61 million kilograms at the CD’s peak in 2000, when the study translated the production of plastics and the generation of electricity into greenhouse gas equivalents (GHGs), streaming generates far more. While GHGs peaked at 157 million in 2000 under the physical era, the generation of GHGs by storing and streaming digital files is estimated to be between 200 million kilograms and over 350 million kilograms in the USA alone.

Cal State Long Beach retires Prospector Pete mascot amid cries of racism and genocide during California gold rush

Cal State Long Beach is sending Prospector Pete packing.

The towering bronze statue that sits in the plaza outside the liberal arts building soon will be relocated to a less prominent place on campus as the university officially moves to retire the mascot that some say represents the state’s history of racism and genocide against Native Americans.

Heh, is this a snowflake?

Is using 'AOC' instead of Cortez' real name racist?

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/latino/latina-thing-alexandria-ocasio-cortez-s-name-latest-culture-war-n985916

Quote
“Beyond this most recent incident involving Laura Ingraham, I find it very disturbing that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s name is being abbreviated as AOC by the news media,” Flores said. “We don’t call Kevin McCarthy ‘KM’ or Nancy Pelosi ‘NP,’ so we need to probe why she’s tagged AOC.”

The congresswoman does not have any issues with that, though, telling people on Twitter that she's not just Cortez; she's Ocasio-Cortez, or they can just call her AOC.

Opting for an easier name rings familiar to some Latinos, including Sarah Funes, 27, a sales associate at Apple. She didn't always go by Sarah; her birth name was Mayra (pronounced MAI'-rah). But she decided to change it when she was 16, in large part because people kept mangling the correct way to say it.

Whether the mispronunciation is intended or not, Funes says it makes people “feel ashamed” about who they are.

“No one asks this of the Tims, Johns and Harrys of the world. No one asks this of the Megans, Kaitlins and Sallys of the world,” Funes said. To make Latinos feel like they "don't belong here, is unacceptable."

Instagram 'influencer' cries at prospect of '9-5 job' after account shut down

"I'm nothing without my following, I am nothing without my following,” she says between sobs.

"And when people try to hate on me or report me [...] think twice because you're ruining my life, because I make all of my money online, all of it and I don't want to lose that.

"I know people like to see me be down and be like them and the ninety per cent-ers – the people who work 9-5 – that is not me, I am in LA to not be like that.”

She then goes on to say that she could never “work a normal job” and that she doesn’t want to return to her previous life as a sex-worker.

"What some of you guys have to realise is I have no skills, I'm twenty-f****** -thousand dollars in debt from college so I can't even go to college if I wanted to.

"I used to work at f****** McDonald's before I did YouTube, Instagram, before I had 100,000 followers, before I had everything in my life I was a f****** loser.”

The video, which Ms Taylor captioned “STOP REPORTING MY INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT” – has been viewed by more than 188,000 people since it was posted on April 4.

Yankees ban Kate Smith's 'God Bless America' over 'history of potential racism


The New York Yankees‘ anti-racism efforts have extended to pulling from their seventh-inning stretch a famous recording of the legendary Kate Smith singing “God Bless America.”

Not because anyone has complained that the song is racist, but because Smith recorded other racially-insensitive standards from and during the Jim Crow era.

The Yankees pulled Smith’s “God Bless America” from the rotation at the start of the season, but the New York Daily News reported the reason Thursday — “the Yankees were made aware of Smith’s history of potential racism.”

Endlessly entertaining...Snowflakes are snowflakes about being snowflakes.

Millennials and Gen Z really ARE snowflakes: Scientists find people aged 18 to 25 are the most upset when they're labelled narcissistic, entitled and oversensitive

Researchers questioned more than 1,000 student and 724 of other age groups
All age groups said they believe that they are the most narcissistic and entitled
But millennials and Generation Z dislike the 'snowflake' characterisation
These groups also tend to believe it less than older generations do, study notes

awhhhh...that's so cute...

Young people blame climate change for their small 401(k) balances

Many young people today think civilization may not exist when they’re of retirement age. Here are ways to get them to invest for the future.

Lori Rodriguez, a 27-year-old communications professional in New York City, is not saving for retirement, and it isn’t necessarily because she can’t afford to — it’s because she doesn’t expect it to matter.

Like many people her age, Rodriguez believes climate change will have catastrophic effects on our planet. Some 88% of millennials — a higher percentage than any other age group — accept that climate change is happening, and 69% say it will impact them in their lifetimes. Engulfed in a constant barrage of depressing news stories, many young people are skeptical about saving for an uncertain future.

“I want to hope for the best and plan for a future that is stable and secure, but, when I look at current events and at the world we are predicting, I do not see how things could not be chaotic in 50 years,” Rodriguez says. “The weather systems are already off, and I don’t think it’s hyperbolic to be a little apocalyptic.”

interesting if you look up the origins of the english word "loot"  it is actually from India -- they plundered India and then china so much during the mid 18th to early 19th century that it literally financed the industrial revolution (free or even negative cost of capital). 

china + india accounted for 50% of the global gdp (according to western scholars) before the engligh converted from a trading partner to conquerors in the 18th century

and as you pointed out , the slave trade is a whole another dimension of cruelty -- from which the buckingham palace personally benefited as well.

I mean genocide, drug dealing, slavery, exploitation of entire cultures/countries, stealing of resources, and biological warfare are all okay as long as white people did it...it's the "right way".

hmmm sounds a lot like china of today

My first thought after reading this was I hope Perspective is ok.  Has anybody seen him lately?

A Florida woman stabbed herself repeatedly because she’s ‘tired of living in Trump’s country’
Quote
A woman in Palmetto, Fla., told police she stabbed herself in the stomach because she doesn’t want to live in Donald Trump’s America.

The distraught woman, whose name is redacted from a police report posted on the Smoking Gun, was covered in blood when cops arrived to her home.

“I observed blood all over (her) legs, hands and face,” responding officer wrote.

When police asked the victim what happened, she lifted her shirt and showed them three self-inflicted stab wounds on her stomach.

“I’m tired of living in Trump’s country. I’m tired of Trump being president,” she reportedly told police. The report said the wounded woman admitted to stabbing herself for those reasons.

The UK was different than the other colonial powers (Spain, Portugal, France, Belgium, Germany, and Japan). The other colonial powers just took, the UK took but also introduced freedom of the press, freedom of speech, rule of law, free markets, property rights, due process, individual rights, women's rights, and liberal democracy. The most advanced and prosperous countries in America, Asia, and Africa were all former UK colonies. No other colonial power has that record.

This shows little regard for nuance and actual facts of history . And If I may , this logic also falls prey to “both sideism”

Empires of the past were cruel but there was a symmetry of sorts , when destruction could be meted out largely via hand to hand combat and the results of one civilization ‘s excesses were reversible with the next turn of events .

We also refer to this era as historic past or the dark ages / medieval times . This was also when Asia was at its peak .

Now then forward to 18th century and industrial revolution when the western point of view defines as the modern era, the effects of which have been nearly irreversible on many cultures and the devastating effects of which people are still living with . And this is to a large extent the legacy of the British and Western Europeans - whether be it the arbitrary borders in Middle East  Africa , or the partition in India.

A band of 50 English gentlemen Mowing down 10,000 African tribals using hyper advanced maxim guns — tribals who are defending their land — while carrying the “white mans burden”  in the modern era is NOT civilization

The human rights rule of law etc was all applicable within the borders of the European nation state . Once they were in foreign lands they acted worse than nazis during ww2.  — British soldiers in India blew up thousand of civilians by tying them to mouths of cannons after they had already surrendered - and this is happening during relative modern mid 19th century when you already had steam ships and telegraph and the camera .

At the same those Same European “gentlemen” once back on their shores , were ballroom dancing just like in Jane Austen s romantic novels

Again - I don’t blame people on this forum for not knowing all this . It is the way history is taught in our schools .

But yes , many of these “superiority” of culture talking points are the same ones used by white supremacists . So there is that . 

The  good thing from my perspective atleast is US is the only western nation to realize the folly of its past and constantly iterate and improve .

 Whereas Europe has never really apologized for its past sins . In Britain they still have stupid shit awards honoring soldiers of the British empire .

British cannoning civilians...  oh yes, execution of of rebellion armed insurrection.

You should really bring up the claim about cutting of thumbs too.

None of which is about the superiority of culture, which is those other poster's claims.  Mine is just the silliness running around rewriting history and claiming vast technological superiority of English gentlemen sipping tea on safari to bag themselves a few thousand natives with their Maxim guns.  The reality being 700 solder force in a defensive camp attacked by a 6000 person force armed with spears and some guns against, defensive machine gun positions...  you really need to stop watching Hollywood for history.

I am not preaching any level of moral high ground....rather pure economics.   What factors allowed a country to be great and why that country is no longer great.  That's how this conversation started.  Spain was the dominant country in the 15th/16th century because of its dominance in trade and monopoly of New World silver/gold.  England was dominant in the 18th/19th century because the rest of Europe was in shambles and its global network of colonies. 

Remember, the discussion started about why UK was no longer dominant...then it went to UK's greatest contribution to humanity was uniting people of all races/regions together.  That's how we got into the social/moral discussion.

Yes , no one is saying anyone has to apologize today in the US

But just don't gloat and take the high ground like some of these Europeans do.  They should just say , yes we looted and cheated and mass murdered , but so what -- and we can all move on. 

But then we pretend that there were no other villains until Hitler came along and messed everything up -- which is blatantly false.

let's see here...even vox thinks it's a stupid idea

Quote
The 2020 Democratic primary debate over reparations, explained
Openly talking about reparations for the descendants of enslaved men and women is a notable shift for Democrats. But the conversation still lacks substance.

A new 2020 litmus test has arrived for Democrats running for president: Do they support reparations?

It marks a turn in a primary contest in which black voters are expected to play a significant role. That the attention to reparations has become so prominent speaks to a series of changes that have occurred in recent years — namely, the increased academic understanding of and public attention to the ways a history of slavery and discrimination has fueled disparities like the racial wealth gap, which shows that the median white household is 10 times wealthier than the median black one.

These changes, coupled with a wave of grassroots activism around racial inequality and economic injustice, have helped produce a shift in mainstream attention to reparations. That attention intensified after some 2020 Democratic candidates commented on reparations to the New York Times and the Washington Post last month.

So far, a handful of candidates have expressed some level of support for reparations: Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro have called the issue important or acknowledged how history supports calls for restitution.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) has been running on a policy that would help close the racial wealth gap, while Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has declined to support reparations but argues that his focus on policies helping distressed communities in general would particularly aid black communities.

The candidate most fervently backing reparations is Marianne Williamson, a self-help guru and spiritual adviser who wants to set aside $100 billion to $500 billion for a reparations program.

Wayfair employees plan walkout to oppose furniture sales to migrant detention facilities

Employees of the Boston-based online housewares giant Wayfair announced Tuesday that they would stage a walkout at the company’s Back Bay offices Wednesday to protest the company’s decision to sell furniture to operators of facilities for migrant children detained at the southern US border.

According to a Wayfair employee who asked not to be identified for fear of retribution, Wayfair employees learned last Wednesday that a $200,000 order of bedroom furniture had been placed by BCFS, a government contractor that has been managing camps at the border.

I heard about that whole "owner" thing on ESPN710, I think Draymond Green was one of the players who started this "movement".

So when I was watching the NBA Draft, I was thinking why wasn't anyone making comparisons to a slave auction.

Are sports like reverse-racism? Many of the highest paid athletes in the US are minorities.

Manholes in Berkeley will now be called 'maintenance holes'

Eliminating the gendered connotations of words like "manhole" in the city municipal code.

No longer will the streets of fair Berkeley be dotted with manholes, nary a womanhole or nonbinaryhole in sight. With Tuesday night's vote, they have all been transmuted into "maintenance holes," that highest, hardest glass manhole-cover finally shattered.

The ordinance eliminates all gendered pronouns from the city code, replacing "she" and "he" with "they."

"Manpower" will be referred to as "human effort," and "man-made" objects will be described with terms like "human-made," "artificial," "manufactured," "machine made" or "synthetic."

California Newspeak:

To meet the ideological requirements of California Socialism (Calsoc), the Democratic Party created Newspeak, a controlled language of restricted grammar and limited vocabulary, meant to limit freedom of thought, personal identity, self-expression, free will — that threatens the ideology of the régime, who have criminalized such concepts into thoughtcrime, as contradictions of Calsoc orthodoxy.

Scarlett Johansson defends casting: 'I should be allowed to play any person, tree or animal'

 "I recognize that in reality, there is a wide spread discrepancy amongst my industry that favors Caucasian, cis gendered actors and that not every actor has been given the same opportunities that I have been privileged to. I continue to support, and always have, diversity in every industry and will continue to fight for projects where everyone is included."

There's two ways to look at it.  The first is that an actor or actress's job is to pretend that he/she is someone else, thus even if a white person has to wear dark makeup and act in role of a black person, that's just part of the job.

The other view is that the actor or actress is not only portraying, but also representing the character.  Therefore to be faithful to the character, you should hire a black person to portray a black character.

Not sure about hiring Scarlet Johansoon to play a tree though.  Wouldn't you just...  use a tree?

Boris Johnson and Donald Trump Are Peak White Male Privilege

Is there no limit to what rich white guys can get away with?

We’ve known for a long time that men — especially rich white men — are held to different standards than everyone else, but never has the difference been so nakedly clear.

There are now two court jesters leading two of the world’s major democracies: Boris Johnson, a known fabulist considered charming for running late and having mussy hair, just became the prime minister of Great Britain. And here in the U.S., President Donald Trump is a former reality TV star, accused sexual assaulter and known scam artist.

Long Beach Post News Article:Have a misdemeanor warrant hanging over your head? LBPD wants to help you clear it

“The department has been working to clear its backlog of misdemeanor and traffic warrants out of the system. Any person with a traffic or non-violent misdemeanor warrant issued by the LBPD can go to the event on Aug. 3 and will be issued a new citation and be given a new court date to handle their violation.

Police have helped more than 185 people clear their warrants in the last three events, according to the LBPD.

“We are pleased with the success of the past warrant servicing events and look forward to providing our community with another opportunity to clear their record of any non-violent warrants,” said Lt. Dina Zapalski.

Warrants that are not eligible to be cleared include: a warrant for any felony crime, a misdemeanor warrant involving violence (domestic violence, crime involving a firearm or resisting arrest) or a misdemeanor warrant that involves a violation of a restraining, protective, or stay away order.

The warrant clearing event will be in Parking Lot 1 of the Long Beach City College Pacific Coast Campus at 1305 East Pacific Coast Highway on Aug. 3 from 1 to 6 p.m.“

Man punches anti-Trump protestor outside rally, crowd chants 'lock him up!'

A Kentucky man has been charged with assault after punching a protestor in the face during a rally for President Trump on Thursday, according to WCPO.

The victim, 61-year-old Mike Alter, was protesting with a crowd outside of the event at Cincinnati's U.S. Bank Arena when the incident occurred. That's when Dallas Frazier, 29, reportedly pulled up in a pickup truck and confronted Alter, eventually punching him multiple times.

Video of the altercation shows Frazier exiting the truck's passenger seat as him and Alter begin yelling at one another. Police stated that Frazier then approached Alter and said, "You want some?"

(Click the link for video)

There were like around 10 cops that arrested him. Didn’t the guy see the cops? He got out of his car and starts hitting the guy. So like when the guy was arrested people were chanting lock him up. Ha

Just because you like cake, does not necessarily mean you have a weight issue.

Let me ask you the same type of questions you ask me and others:

1. Do you know weight challenged people?

2. Would you tell them they are "fat" and make jokes about them to their face?

3. So you are offended at "black face" references but are okay with posting "fat" insults?

You know the expression “Talk is Cheap”?

Virtue signaling is the ultimate example of Talk is Cheap.

Liberals love virtue signaling because they earn image points with no personal sacrifice.

I don’t agree with Palestinian activists but I respect them because throwing rocks at Israeli soldiers or laying down in front of a bulldozer is an act of immense bravery and sacrifice; something no liberal would ever consider doing.

Guilt and self hate are the preferred way of virtue signaling for snowflakes...I doubt they really believe it but if they do there is no saving theses people.

You know the expression “Talk is Cheap”?

Virtue signaling is the ultimate example of Talk is Cheap.

You see? This is the pointless product of false and stupid virtue signalling...it brings about its own circular wind.  By putting out a very public statement she has sucked in inevitable ridicule which further victimizes her which sucks in more ridicule...its a self sustaining and self inflicted storm.  If the snowflake had just shared her sentiment with her psychiatrist (which she undoubtedly has several), then none of this would have happened. Pointless.

Rosanna Arquette Says FBI Told Her to ‘Lock’ Twitter Account After Blowback From White ‘Shame’ Tweet (Exclusive)

In her statement to TheWrap, Arquette detailed the “threatening and cruel” online response to her Wednesday tweet. “There are toxic and very vicious people on social media. Threatening and cruel,” Arquette said. “I said yesterday the I am ashamed of the color of my skin. I am privileged just because I’m white. I feel shame. Because of all the violence that is happening in America and other racist countries.”

ABC News Article: Florida white supremacist arrested for threatening shooting at Walmart, police say

A Florida white supremacist has been arrested for threatening a shooting at a Walmart just days after 22 people were killed at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, in one of the worst mass shootings in the country's modern history.

Richard Clayton, 26, was arrested by Florida Department of Law Enforcement authorities on Friday in Winter Park after making an online threat last week, according to police.

On Aug. 6, Clayton allegedly posted on Facebook, "3 more days of probation left then I get my AR-15 back. Don’t go to Walmart next week."

The threat echoes the shooting allegedly carried out by Patrick Crusius in El Paso on Aug. 3. The suspect entered the Walmart and opened fire with an AR-15 assault rifle. Nearly 50 people were hit by the gunfire before the suspect exited the store and was later arrested a short distance away.

Police said Crusius, a native of Allen, Texas, some 10 hours away, admitted to the crime and said he was trying to kill as many Mexicans as he could. He also posted a "manifesto" online espousing white supremacist and anti-immigrant sentiments.

Florida authorities said Clayton holds some of the same beliefs.

"Clayton appears to believe in the white supremacist ideology and has a history of posting threats on Facebook using fictitious accounts," Florida Department of Law Enforcement officials said.

San Francisco board rebrands 'convicted felon' as 'justice-involved person,' sanitizes other crime lingo

Crime-ridden San Francisco has introduced new sanitized language for criminals, getting rid of words such as “offender” and “addict” while changing “convicted felon” to “justice-involved person.”

The Board of Supervisors adopted the changes last month even as the city reels from one of the highest crime rates in the country and staggering inequality exemplified by pervasive homelessness alongside Silicon Valley wealth.

The local officials say the new language will help change people’s views about those who commit crimes.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, from now on a convicted felon or an offender released from custody will be known as a “formerly incarcerated person,” or a “justice-involved” person or just a “returning resident.”

A juvenile “delinquent” will now be called a “young person with justice system involvement,” or a “young person impacted by the juvenile justice system.”

And drug addicts or substance abusers, meanwhile, will become “a person with a history of substance use.”

“We don’t want people to be forever labeled for the worst things that they have done,” Supervisor Matt Haney told the newspaper. “We want them ultimately to become contributing citizens, and referring to them as felons is like a scarlet letter that they can never get away from.”

The sanitized language, though unlikely to do much to address the crime problem, may result in some convoluted descriptions of crimes in the future.

The newspaper noted an individual whose car has been broken into could well be known to police as “a person who has come in contact with a returning resident who was involved with the justice system and who is currently under supervision with a history of substance use.”

Step up, change the laws and make it that if you want to be in business selling services or goods to the public, then you need public restrooms without needed purchase or asking for key or code or other bullshit.

Then enforce the bloody laws.

Apparently, wearing red baseball caps is a triggering experience for Rebecca Makkai and she warned that it scares other people.

San Francisco officials brand NRA a ‘domestic terrorist organization’

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has passed a resolution declaring the National Rifle Association a “domestic terrorist organization” and urged the federal government to do the same – the latest escalation in the heated rhetoric from Democrats regarding the NRA in the wake of several deadly mass shootings.

The resolution, which passed Tuesday and says the U.S. is “plagued by an epidemic of gun violence,” accuses the NRA of using “its considerable wealth and organization strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence.”

The document resolves to assess the relationships that those who do business with the city have with the group and says “the City and County of San Francisco should take every reasonable step to limit those entities who do business with the City and County of San Francisco from doing business with this domestic terrorist organization.”

The NRA responded by calling the resolution a stunt that was distracting from the city’s myriad of social problems.

"This ludicrous stunt by the Board of Supervisors is an effort to distract from the real problems facing San Francisco, such as rampant homelessness, drug abuse and skyrocketing petty crime, to name a few,” the statement said, according to KTVU. “The NRA will continue working to protect the constitutional rights of all freedom-loving Americans."

Uh okay. Don’t make it sound like they are elite. So like they have to serve 5 years after they graduate or something. IDk

Elite is when they make it to special forces and like anybody in the military can apply. BUT that’s if they get selected and make the cut.

They are elite. It's not like getting into Cal, UCLA or Notre Dame.  All of which have contacted him. Not only must a candidate be nominated in order to apply by a sitting Congressman, Senator, Vice President or the President himself, he must be in the top 10% of his class with significant participation and leadership skills.  A well rounded background with a rigorous physical requirement.  It is 10 times harder than the most elite institution, and thats just to apply.  Getting in requires a battery of interviews and recommendations.  Maybe you have a different definition of elite, but that checks all my boxes

Hardly free, they commit to protecting and serving our country for years.  My neighbor did the same,  after his service was up he was offed full scholarship to Harvard, Cal, and  Whartons MBA programs.  He chose Wharton and now runs an S and P 100 company.   They look for guys like that. Maybe this is more suited for the education thread.

Idc about the thread topic title. TI doesn’t have rules.
But graduates can also serve in an infantry unit in a war zone as the CO. (ex previous operations/missions: Iraq and Afghanistan)
The purpose of my statement, to let people know that is not a piece of cake.

Not if you are in the Naval or Air force Academy, and not if your a pilot.  You might serve in a combat unit and certainly may be in harms way but he will likely fly.

The Marines fall under the Navy. So the graduates from the Navy Academy either go to the Navy or Marines.

Not everybody that graduates from the Airforce Academy are pilots. (according to the website) They can do mission support, logistics, operations, scientific/technical and others.

This drove me crazy when we recently visited 7 campuses in 3 days...The oppressive coddling was up front at every college we visited.  Snowflakes are created in that environment instead of preparing these kids for life after college.  It was depressing.

Coddling college campuses and a crippled culture
If the snowflake insanity persists, so will the demand for 'safe spaces'

Will the self-absorbed snowflake insanity persist? Will you continue to hear cries of “you offended me” and “trigger warnings” in the halls of the academy? Will the demands for “safe spaces” continue to trump the study of science? Will the fixation on “micro-aggressions” continue to be more important than teaching morality? Will victimization continue to trump virtue? 

In the days ahead, what will the news from the ivory tower be? If the old axiom that the best predictor of future behavior is always past behavior is true, here is just a shortlist of what you can expect in the coming weeks and months.

Students at Emory University will renew their cry for counseling because someone used chalk to write the name of an unpopular politician on a campus sidewalk.

Young intellectuals at Yale will continue to demand the termination of professors because of their “hurtful” views on such critical issues as Halloween costumes.

Southern Illinois University will double down on its brilliant plan to host campus “naps” in its library so students can snuggle up together in sleeping bags as they seek to solve our nation’s ills.

In the coming academic year, millennials from campuses across the land will persist in their juvenile fits of rage.

We all know it’s up to the individual. All results may vary and like I said it’s not a piece of cake.
Regarding your neighbor story it seems like an exception. Let me give you another example. A professional basketball player that went to fill in the blank HS. Do we expect students that attended that HS make it to the NBA? The answer is probably not. It’s up to the individual.

Wow, even at the Naval Academy has oversensitive Snowflakes in the crowd...how stupid is this that a hitch knot used to lift construction material triggered some fool who probably never worked a construction job in his life and just sees racism in tools? Anonymously reported of course....too funny but really sad.

Naval Academy probing apparent noose found in school building

Naval Academy Superintendent Vice Admiral Sean Buck said in a statement Friday that the noose was found in a construction zone off-limits to staff in Rickover Hall, the school's engineering building.

Carl Snowden is chairman of the Caucus of African-American Leaders. He says the caucus was contacted anonymously about a noose being hung on August 28, the 56th anniversary of the March on Washington led by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., when he gave his historic "I Have a Dream" speech. The group contacted the academy.

Buck said while it's possible the noose was part of a hoisting system to complete ductwork, the academy will investigate it because it "takes all allegations of race hate very seriously and is working quickly and diligently to determine the facts surrounding the reported incident, specifically why the reported incident was not brought to light sooner."

Why the way we teach kids table manners is actually kind of racist

I’ve always believed that food tastes better when it’s delivered to your mouth by your hands, regardless of what you’re eating. But what feels important to say is that my dad was very clear that the technique he taught us was only for eating Indian food. He spent just as much time teaching us how to use a knife and fork and how to behave properly at the table, with all of the detailed instructions of an etiquette lesson. There was never any horsing around allowed at the table or complaining about not liking the food, and both my brother and I learned to tip our soup bowls forward and ladle up the last bit of soup away from us to avoid any accidental drips on our clothes.

As we grew up, we learned that there were times to eat with our hands and times to use cutlery and that this difference was largely dictated by the culture of the food we were eating. A roast chicken dinner needs a knife and fork to break down the meat and roasted vegetables into bite-sized pieces—plus, navigating through mashed potatoes and gravy is a hot mess with your fingers. But sandwiches and falafels are all about hands. And, of course, chopsticks make their way into the picture for noodles, sushi and dumplings. I have known my whole life that not all of the food around the world is eaten with a knife and fork.

Recently, I chatted with someone who told me a story about her young niece, who goes to a prestigious preschool and was eating rice with her hands at lunchtime. The feedback her parents received was that this child needed to work on her table manners and use proper cutlery to eat. I immediately felt a rush of anger bubble up inside me when I heard this. The message that eating food with your hands is an unmannered way to eat is a real problem for me because it is dripping with the control and shame of colonization, which is particularly dangerous in an educational context. Suggesting that a child who eats with her hands has no manners is an echo of European colonial powers looking to tame the wildness out of the people they controlled. These European table manners were imposed on conquered people in an attempt to “civilize” them. It’s a damaging message about right and wrong ways to do things. It positions the technique as superior and the people who practise it as setters of the standard, leaving those with a different approach to eating with a status of inferiority. The idea of a single standard of acceptable table manners is just one of a host of strategies used to grow and promote racism. It’s a subtle message but one that is reinforced three times a day, every day, which makes it quite powerful.

Let me be clear here: I think it’s vitally important to teach children how to behave at a table. But I think we need to revisit what we’re teaching and how we’re teaching it. Recognizing diversity in cultural backgrounds and food traditions is essential, especially in a country as multicultural as Canada. We shouldn’t be teaching kids that they’re not supposed to eat with their hands at all or that eating with cutlery is a more refined or sophisticated way to eat. Different people eat their food in different ways. My father’s instructions were very detailed, with a big focus on being tidy and efficient and maintaining Hindu customs around cleanliness and purity. There is a very mannered way to eat with your hands, and there are more than a billion people around the world who eat this way.

I recently spoke with some friends of British descent, who recalled their own strict lessons at the dinner table about not touching a single thing on their plates with their hands, with the curious exception of unsauced asparagus, which is somehow given a pass. (Yep, this is actually an etiquette thing.) They talked about how much of their own tradition they had to set aside to become comfortable eating more than just sandwiches and fries with their hands.

The message we need to send to our kids is that there are many different ways to eat food and that they’re all worthy of respect and acknowledgement. We need to show them that good manners can look quite different from table to table, particularly here in Canada. A great way to start is to ensure that there’s real cultural diversity in the menus served to kids in schools and daycare centres so that they can be exposed to a variety of cuisines and how to eat them. Learning how to properly use a knife and fork is very important, but so is learning how to squeeze a slippery dumpling between chopsticks and how to tear the perfect piece of naan with just one hand.

'You should be ashamed': Forbes is SLAMMED after releasing a list of '100 most innovative leaders' that features just ONE woman (who is represented with a stock image of a MAN)

The publication released a list ranking the most innovative American CEOs
In the list, released Friday, it included 99 men and one female, Ross CEO Barbara Rentler, who didn't even get a picture in the publication
Backlash ensued on Twitter with people attacking the publication for its list
Forbes claimed its methodology to pick the CEOs came from data, but people accused it of falling into gender bias with the list
The publication has since apologized and called its methodology 'flawed'

Showing other cultures a better way of living is not racist.

When Spain outlawed human sacrifice among Native Americans, the Native Americans were better off.

When Britain outlawed throwing live Indian widows on their husband's funeral pyres, the Indians were better off.

Eating rice with utensils is more sanitary and reduces disease.

White liberals are offended that Yang refers to Asians as 'doctors' and 'good at math'.  Good thing they haven't seen what gets posted on TI on a daily basis!!

Andrew Yang: No apologies for the Asian jokes
Quote
Andrew Yang says he isn’t going to stop making Asian jokes. In fact, the entrepreneur-presidential candidate added another one in an interview Wednesday with POLITICO.

Asked whether the Democratic National Committee’s debate-qualifying thresholds had altered his campaign’s strategic approach, Yang initially stopped himself. “I was about to tell an Asian joke,” he conceded to some laughter, including his own, before leaning in.

I’m Asian, so I love tests,” he continued, adding that the DNC’s rules have been “incredibly helpful” to him because he knows how many donors — and what polling numbers — he needs to aim for.

But during his unlikely rise, Yang has taken heat for playing up Asian stereotypes — from all the physicians he’s personally familiar with (“Now, I am Asian, so I know a lot of doctors,” he said at the last debate), to his affinity for mathematics (“The opposite of Donald Trump is an Asian man who likes math,” he likes to say in closing his speeches).

Some supporters have said they see the jokes as self-deprecating and appropriate “in-group” humor because Yang is Asian American. Yet, the quips aren’t landing with critics who say they help perpetuate labels they’ve spent years working to eliminate.

https://globalnews.ca/news/5922861/justin-trudeau-brownface-video/ (https://globalnews.ca/news/5922861/justin-trudeau-brownface-video/)

Global News has obtained video showing Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau in blackface, the third instance of racist dress to come to light in 12 hours.

The video was shot in the early 1990s, however it’s not clear where it takes place.

The video, obtained exclusively by Global News, shows Trudeau covered in what appears to be dark makeup and raising his hands in the air while laughing, sticking his tongue out and making faces. He’s wearing a white T-shirt, and his jeans are ripped at the knees. It appears as though his arms and legs are covered in makeup as well.

It does not appear the video was shot at the same time and place as the other photos of Trudeau in racist makeup that have emerged in the past 24 hours.

I actually like Trudeau and would hate to see him go.  He is such a weak leader and Trump masterfully got him to cave on the USMCA.  We could actually get somebody competent in there that would be much harder to deal with.

I have to admit, i wasn't sure which thread to post this absurdity to, "global warming" or "snowflake" since it has equal splatters of both...asking weeds for forgiveness....on one hand this is hilarious but on another its deeply concerning .

Progressive seminary students offered a confession to plants. How do we think about sins against nature?

When I was a child, I spoke to trees. I knew my secrets would be safe with these great green friendly things. And I thought the trees spoke back to me. I’d press my ear against their trunks to hear the reverberating, strangely musical sound of branches knocking against one another in the wind, a sound that seems to be traveling to my ear from the decades coded into each tree’s annual growth rings.

I’m comfortable talking to plants, but I’m not sure if I could do so through a microphone in front of a bunch of seminarians, as a student at Union Theological Seminary is doing in a photo tweeted out Tuesday by the seminary’s account:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/religion/2019/09/18/progressive-seminary-students-offered-confession-plants-what-are-we-make-it/ (https://www.washingtonpost.com/religion/2019/09/18/progressive-seminary-students-offered-confession-plants-what-are-we-make-it/)

Today in chapel, we confessed to plants. Together, we held our grief, joy, regret, hope, guilt and sorrow in prayer; offering them to the beings who sustain us but whose gift we too often fail to honor.

What do you confess to the plants in your life?

EXCLUSIVE: Video shows Trudeau in blackface in 3rd instance of racist makeup

https://globalnews.ca/news/5922861/justin-trudeau-brownface-video/ (https://globalnews.ca/news/5922861/justin-trudeau-brownface-video/)

Global News has obtained video showing Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau in blackface, the third instance of racist dress to come to light in 12 hours.

The video was shot in the early 1990s, however it’s not clear where it takes place.

The video, obtained exclusively by Global News, shows Trudeau covered in what appears to be dark makeup and raising his hands in the air while laughing, sticking his tongue out and making faces. He’s wearing a white T-shirt, and his jeans are ripped at the knees. It appears as though his arms and legs are covered in makeup as well.

It does not appear the video was shot at the same time and place as the other photos of Trudeau in racist makeup that have emerged in the past 24 hours.

https://globalnews.ca/news/5922861/justin-trudeau-brownface-video/ (https://globalnews.ca/news/5922861/justin-trudeau-brownface-video/)

I agree with Trudeau...Trudeau must go!!!

So I get that blackface in the US hearkens back to the days of minstrel shows when actors would put on blackface and act mockingly of African Americans.  Yet, I'm not sure I see how that applies to Canada which has it's own distinctive history separate from the US.  Should they be held to the same standards as the US, particularly when Trudeau's actions in question presumably weren't meant to mock African-Canadians?

Then you look at the brown face incident, and he was wearing makeup for an Arabian Nights themed party.  Arabian Nights is a famous literary story based on Middle Eastern folk tales without any overt racism (that I'm aware of).  So he was dressed as a non-racist character, from a non-racist story, for a non-racist school event.  What is the problem again?

The Inglewood investor can’t stop talking about yang.

While I don't support Yang's candidacy or platform, I do think he's a nice guy and probably has the highest IQ of any of the Dems running.

Of course, maybe I just think he has a high IQ because he's Asian.

hey now, yang knows doctors!

and fittingly for this thread, is yang cakist towards his own race?

Quote
Andrew Yang’s use of Asian stereotypes is reinforcing toxic tropes

During the third Democratic debate, Andrew Yang made a joke that played up an Asian stereotype: “Now, I am Asian, so I know a lot of doctors,” he quipped.

It wasn’t the first time he’d done so. Two months earlier, during the second debate, he told viewers, “The opposite of Donald Trump is an Asian man who likes math.”

Yang has also used such one-liners at rallies, and sold merchandise alluding to these comments, including baseball caps and T-shirts simply emblazoned with the word, “Math.”

Yang’s statements have spurred mixed reactions from the Asian American community. While some of his supporters told Vox that the jokes are cheeky in-group references that acknowledge Yang’s Asianness, other voters are concerned they reinforce longstanding racist stereotypes about Asian Americans and other minority groups.

No one escapes the snowflake vortex...even the inquisitor is guilty during this Spanish Inquisition!!

Iowa reporter who found a viral star’s racist tweets slammed when critics find his own offensive posts

On Sept. 14, an Iowa man named Carson King went viral after holding a sign on ESPN’s “College GameDay” asking for donations on Venmo to pay for his “Busch Light Supply.” When cash unexpectedly poured in, King decided to give it to a local children’s hospital instead of buying beer, leading Venmo and Anheuser-Busch to pledge matching donations.

That’s when Des Moines Register reporter Aaron Calvin set out to profile King — and found two offensive tweets the 24-year-old had sent when he was 16.

That discovery has now sparked an acrimonious conflict, as King quickly lost his partnership with Anheuser-Busch, and the Des Moines Register scrambled to explain its decision to report on the old tweets in the first place — particularly after critics Tuesday turned up multiple offensive tweets once sent by Calvin, forcing the paper to open a new investigation into its own reporter.

Between 2010 and 2013, Calvin published tweets that used a racist slur for black people, made light of abusing women, used the word “gay” as a pejorative and mocked the legalization of same-sex marriage by saying he was “totally going to marry a horse.” The Register’s statement on Twitter was soon flooded with images of the reporter’s offensive comments.

By late Tuesday night, Calvin began deleting old tweets, and then locked his account early Wednesday morning after posting an apology.

Bowlcut/Dylann Roof
General Hate Symbols

After white supremacist Dylann Roof’s 2015 attack at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, many white supremacists tried to distance themselves from the attack or to claim it was a “false flag” operation designed to enable a crackdown on white supremacists. Since 2017, however, an increasing number of mostly younger white supremacists have not only applauded Roof’s attack but have openly promoted him as a hero, or even as a “saint.”

Roof venerators often use Roof’s distinctive bowl-shaped haircut to refer to themselves and like-minded fans. This includes using word “bowl” as part of a screen name such as “Bowltrash” or “The Final Bowlution,” or collectively referring to themselves using terms such as the “Bowl Gang” or “Bowlwaffen Division.”  They may also use slang terms such as “Take the bowl pill” or “disrespect the bowl, pay the toll.” Some use phrases such as “take me to church” or “take them to church” as coded references for violence.

PETA asks Mississippi State to retire bulldog mascot after sideline collision with Auburn player

PETA said in a statement on Tuesday that it had sent Mississippi State a letter requesting that Jak — the name of the bulldog that serves as Bully — retire from his mascot duties and that Mississippi State shouldn’t replace him with another bulldog mascot. The letter is a tad hyperbolic.

“It was sheer luck that this close call didn’t leave Jak severely injured or even dead, and it’s never been fair game to subject a dog to the bright lights, screaming fans and booming noise of a football stadium,” PETA’s Marta Holmberg said in a statement. “PETA is urging MSU to be a dog’s best friend and end its live-mascot program — and we’ll gladly help find Jak a loving adoptive home where he can live out the rest of his days in peace.”

You gotta be kidding...it’s where I know I can find Cal Rose rice.  I go straight to the Asian food aisle!

To David Chang, the ‘ethnic’ food aisle is racist. Others say it’s convenient.

The sting occurs whenever they walk down the “ethnic” food aisle, the section of the supermarket that, to some, plays out like a remnant of the Jim Crow era, when laws established separate facilities for African Americans in the post-Reconstruction South. Sometimes known as the “international” food aisle, or even “Asian” and “Latino” aisles, these rows can come across to the shoppers they seemingly target as de facto segregation, another kind of “separate but equal” policy that marginalized African Americans for generations.

“If you go to the ethnic food aisle, that is sort of the last bastion of racism that you can see in full daylight in retail America,” David Chang

The point of this thread is to normalize hatred towards others.

Green face is now triggering to witches...that’s a new one.  Happy Halloween

Woman causes uproar by claiming green Halloween face paint is 'just as racist' as blackface because it 'represents the torturings of witches in the 1600s'

The mother-of-two from Massachusetts, who goes by the name of 'Cannawitch', took to her Twitter account this week to slam the practice of revelers painting their faces green when dressing up as witches.

Claiming it represents the 'punishments and torturings of alleged witches in the 1600s', she branded it 'just as racist as a white person painting their face black'.

Some at work are dressed as Nintendo characters and someone said "we need a Yoshi". Since Yoshi is green, we laughed about "greenface" and how foolish it would be to complain about this. What was seen to be farce is quickly becoming fact - much swifter than I ever expected.

Captain Kirk fires a full photon torpedo spread at a snowflake and destroys it....

It's OK to be a boomer!: William Shatner takes 'entitled' millennials to task in heated Twitter exchange, calls one a diva and corrects her grammar after she blamed his generation for the 'hardships' she faces
The phrase 'OK Boomer' is used to show youthful exasperation at older people
When it was directed at William Shatner he insisted it was 'a compliment for me'
The 88-year-old former Star Trek actor went on to label it a 'childish insult'

Billie E defended herself, saying she was 'not really into pejoratives, but what's the term for people when they can't interpret a joke?'.

Shatner could not resist another dig at that, answering: 'Millennials?'.


The actor expanded on his point when another user chimed in to say they were 'already sick of this OK Boomer nonsense'.

So are you saying you're using your sword to the means of aggression? When Jesus was saying that, He meant to use as a protection which Peter of course failed and used as aggression by cutting someone's ear off. Jesus though healed that ear back to him even though that guy was one of those who arrested Him. But in the bigger picture, Jesus was saying that so that the Scripture might be fulfilled if you read Luke 22:37 right after the verse you quoted.

But since I haven't been following this thread, I can't say if there was hatred or not. I don't have enough information here so I'm not saying you did wrong or anything.

Also, read why he started this thread. Keyword: shallow

Is that what morekaos did though? Well, I can't fully know what's in his mind since only God knows someone's heart.

But as far as how "I" saw it, he wasn't really talking about blackface in a negative way, but showing how people get political over things that even their own side of the party do the same jokes while making such huge deals when the other party does it. How people get political and hypocritical for both GOP and Dems. I think that was the original intention of this thread. (which is also deeply political in a way BTW)

Now to answer your question, is it OK to talk about other races in a negative way? No, it's not OK. To borrow from the biblical example, most church leaders were very racist in the beginning. Peter makes a pretty remarkable racist comment, saying unlawful to associate with a non-Jew, over the Italian Cohort, Cornelius in Acts 10. God though kept saying (even from the OT) that everyone, no matter what the races they are, to be treated well since all are God's creations. Peter learned that lesson here. Regardless, it took quite a bit of time for even Christian leaders at the time to get out of their racism to love other nations as God's children. So being racist or even making negative jokes on other races is not really what God would approve, but we being humans, will keep failing and failing. Though if you're a real Christian, you will have a longing heart to be not failing but be right as God is, over and over again.

Back to morekaos' intention. I don't know if he was being shallow or not. But I can see he was making fun of Democrats for sure. You could be right. Maybe he was being fake and made it sound like a shallow thing while deeply saying bad things to others. Maybe you're wrong. Maybe he's clean. I don't know. But racism? No, that's wrong for sure.

So you can't tolerate racism. Me neither. But are you all that perfect? Sure, I don't cross the line "externally." But what about our inside while we might not say racists jokes on the outside? Are we all perfectly loving everyone equally? I can't say that for myself. I do think of stereotypical thoughts internally in my mind when I see something even though I might not say it out loud.

Your passion for standing up for what's correct is admirable. I really mean that. However, I think you need to understand the Bible a little more accurately. I apologize if this sounded rude, but I sort of have to say in this way since now I know you're a Christian.

First, we need to stand up for the truth of the gospel, not for what's politically or even morally correct. Don't get me wrong here. We should surely live a life that is moral and correct. No doubt. But the thing we need to stand up for is not those things. We need to stand up for the proclamation of saying Jesus is the Christ (Messiah, Savior). Even when anyone, power, or even laws prohibit us to stand up for it, we need to do so.

Secondly, we also need to stand up for those who cannot speak up for themselves. Those are usually the weak people like the poor, needy, widows, foreigners, etc. If anyone speaks racist comment on a certain ethnicity, that ethnicity people these days are well and fully equipped to speak up for themselves especially on forums like this. You don't need to defend them, although your action is still admirable like I said. But it's kind of wrong application to use the Bible verses and say you're standing up for those. You're definitely standing up for your political agenda, but it's a little different than the biblical context in my opinion.

Please correct me by your explanations if you think I'm wrong.

Ok, so I actually took time to read this thread from page 1 and read up to about 5 and lost interests. Seems like morekaos started this thread to just have some entertainment purposes only and somehow it got into another political thread GOP vs. Dems. The exact reason why I don't like to follow these threads since they're all just arguing each other with un-absolute bases. I like to spend time on what's absolute and stick to that. Sorry guys, but both Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians (is that how you spell?), or whatever are all far from being absolutely right. But you can keep voting for what you think is "less worse" if you know what I mean.

I personally don't see hatred was the original intention here. But it sparked out of contents within the contents within the contents. But that's what political junkies do anyways..

So is it normal to talk about black faces, or talk about other races not in a positive way?
Also, read why he started this thread. Keyword: shallow

Is that what morekaos did though? Well, I can't fully know what's in his mind since only God knows someone's heart.

But as far as how "I" saw it, he wasn't really talking about blackface in a negative way, but showing how people get political over things that even their own side of the party do the same jokes while making such huge deals when the other party does it. How people get political and hypocritical for both GOP and Dems. I think that was the original intention of this thread. (which is also deeply political in a way BTW)

Now to answer your question, is it OK to talk about other races in a negative way? No, it's not OK. To borrow from the biblical example, most church leaders were very racist in the beginning. Peter makes a pretty remarkable racist comment, saying unlawful to associate with a non-Jew, over the Italian Cohort, Cornelius in Acts 10. God though kept saying (even from the OT) that everyone, no matter what the races they are, to be treated well since all are God's creations. Peter learned that lesson here. Regardless, it took quite a bit of time for even Christian leaders at the time to get out of their racism to love other nations as God's children. So being racist or even making negative jokes on other races is not really what God would approve, but we being humans, will keep failing and failing. Though if you're a real Christian, you will have a longing heart to be not failing but be right as God is, over and over again.

Back to morekaos' intention. I don't know if he was being shallow or not. But I can see he was making fun of Democrats for sure. You could be right. Maybe he was being fake and made it sound like a shallow thing while deeply saying bad things to others. Maybe you're wrong. Maybe he's clean. I don't know. But racism? No, that's wrong for sure.

We’re they correct in being racist? You can do the same but don’t be surprised if someone calls you a fake Christian or a fake Catholic.

No, them being racist, thinking only the Circumcision or the Jews were in favor of God was not correct. They were wrong and God let them know so. That's the whole reason why the NT is written in Greek, not Aramaic.

Like you, I don't really care if anyone calls me fake nor agree with me. I'm not looking for a fan or a follower. I'm just saying (or trying to say) the Bible as is. I do joke around also lots of times as you can tell.

1. Read the first page of the thread.
2. Far right websites try to normalize hatred. How many times did Morecas drop articles about black faces?
3. I guess it comes down to the way you were raised and brought up.
4. At the end I’m not surprised. Now I know why he made that comment about that franchise. Because of the type of people that go there. But someone needs to tell him all races go there.

The Bush first pitch was right after 9/11, correct?  That was one of the least partisan moments in recent history, so not really a fair comparison.

Explain how this is backing away?

My statement was very simple: You are accusing a member of spreading hate. So far no other member or even the admin agrees with you.

Several members have explained what "snowflakes" is and what the point of this thread is, even Mety made an attempt.

I tried to explain before but here it is again:

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/snowflake

To note:

Quote
In recent years, the meaning has expanded from "a person who believes they are unique" to also denote someone who is too sensitive and is easily offended, based on conceptions of snowflakes' fragility and weakness.

So all those articles that morekaos and others have posted are examples of people overreacting or being easily offended by things.

Is calling a big giant metal disk a "manhole cover" really sexist? Posting an article where someone overreacts to something and accused them of racism does not mean the person is racist. It means they are pointing out something and asking "Are they really racist?".

Criticizing an American chicken company's marketing effort does not mean they are anti-American. Talking about how you know important people from other countries does not mean they are anti-American. It's just talking.

While you may not agree with other members, their politics, their job or their comments... sometimes you overreach with your commentary. But that's fine, that's your right as a TI member here. But just like you want to point out their faults... you have to be receptive of the same criticism.

And even after all these words I'm typing, I'm sure your next post will be something about me avoiding the question or that I'm wrong and that's what I mean... there is nothing I can say to change your mind, so why even say it? You keep asking me to respond to you but you don't agree with my response so that gains us zero.

We don't agree on the topic of Snowflakes and it's purpose. You think it's spreading hate, others (and myself) think it's pointing out what people think is hate... and really isn't. And that's the irony.

Let’s be real: when a person critiques a restaurant they talk about the taste of food, service, maybe the decor/inside of the restaurant.
But to call the patrons/restaurant stupid without giving a reason is kind of odd.

But it makes sense, if you take a step back and say wait a minute his best friend/family member owns a foreign restaurant franchise that competes with the top American franchise.

I call it like it is.

I'll probably take flak for this but staying home and taking care of the kids is not *that* hard. I'd much rather do that than deal with co-workers who don't do their work so it makes more work for you or management that doesn't understand what's happening and makes stupid decisions that affect your job. At least with your own kids, you are the one making all the calls and the "compensation" is more enjoyable and rewarding. :)

Now, how can I say this? I was a stay-at-home dad for a few years... but I was also working side contracts so I was doing both. Even my wife agrees that staying home to take care of the kids is much easier than working full time.

But, yes, for us 99%ers, dual income and paying for child care is the only way we can live in Irvine... can't afford even "slowdown" prices on one of our incomes.

Look what you said, you don’t like to do work and you second guess management.

Williams says as a result of Burger King’s counter-productive cooking methods, his supposed meat-free Impossible Whopper was contaminated by meat
The burger in question was said to have been purchased at a franchise in Atlanta
Williams also cites other similar complaints from vegans online who claimed to have had their Impossible Burgers cooked alongside regular beef patties
Williams is seeking compensation for damages, and is also urging Burger King to stop cooking the Impossible Burgers on standard grills altogether

Millennials say playing 'Secret Santa' in the workplace gives them 'anxiety issues' because they fear being seen as 'too stingy', academic warns
A report by Jobsite found that young workers spend more on Secret Santa gifts
They fear about being called 'stingy' and often dip into their savings

Peloton says it's 'disappointed in how some have misinterpreted' their 'sexist' ad after stocks plummeted 10 percent and cost the company $942million
In an emailed statement, the high-end at home fitness brand shared that they are constantly inundated with positive comments
While we're disappointed in how some have misinterpreted this commercial, we are encouraged by the outpouring of support,' Peloton added
Peloton Interactive Inc's stock was down 9.12 per cent on Tuesday
Their ad titled 'The Gift That Gives Back' shows a woman receiving a Peloton bike from her husband on Christmas morning 
Twitter users branded the commercial sexist, misogynistic and cringeworthy

Police chief's estranged daughter who called him a racist after he shared 'Pig' Starbucks cup photo on Facebook has her OWN history of offensive language, using N-word and complaining about society 'going pro black and anti white'
Oklahoma police chief's  post on Facebook about a Starbucks employee writing 'Pig' on his deputy's coffee cup went viral over the weekend

Johnny O'Mara's estranged daughter Lauren sided with the barista, calling her own father a 'racist' and claimed he had 'zero business being a police officer'
But the 23-year-old has her own disturbing history of racist language posted on social media, DailyMail.com can reveal
Lauren has used the N-word on Twitter, called her black friend a 'n** nog', tweeted a lewd black joke about Jesus
She also wrote: 'I don't like how we are going pro black and anti white, I know that blacks have suffered but it just isn't the way equality is achieved'

When Twitter users called her out on the language, she dismissed the comments as being a childish mistake

So now snowflakes need a college level course on...living?  A Cal degree just is not what it used to be.

UC Berkeley undergrads create their own 'Adulting' class to share real-life skills including budgeting, managing stress and navigating romantic relationships with their classmates
Belle Lau, 21, and Jenny Zhou, 20, came up with the idea for the course last year after noting shortcomings in their education at University of California, Berkeley
Upon moving out of their dorms and into apartments, the pair found themselves struggling to stick to a budget as they spent too much money eating out
Suspecting that peers may be facing similar struggles with adjusting to adult life, Lau and Zhou decided to create a curriculum to increase students' self-reliance
Their 12-week course called 'Adulting' debuted to high demand last spring
Each 90-minute session features a presentation from Zhou and Lau, followed by a presentation from an outside expert

To go through life in a constant state of fear is sad enough...but to train your children to be always anxious is child abuse.

Parenting in the age of ‘eco-anxiety’: Wildfire fears, and a deeper dread


In the mental health field (of which I’m a part), some clinicians might say I was experiencing “eco-anxiety,” and perhaps it’s true. Across the globe, worry related to a changing and uncertain natural environment is clogging up our minds, bodies and news feeds. To be sure, there is real cause to worry. If we do not act quickly to combat climate change, our future looks exceedingly grim: climate-related deaths, mass migrations, environmental devastation, extinction of species. But, other than managing this anxiety to whatever extent possible, are there really any better options?
As a parent raising two young children in California, I’m struck by the peculiar, often unsettling contours of this particular moment: how families are readying evacuation kits, attempting to fit child-size masks, discussing air quality indexes with neighbors — all while maintaining some semblance of ordinary life. At the root, a low-grade anxiety permeates. On the surface, we are resilient and functional.

Cancel Culture Comes For J.K. Rowling Over “Transphobic” Tweet

J.K. Rowling, the wildly successful author of Harry Potter books is under fire on social media for posting a tweet in support of science. A tax expert at a think tank in London was fired for tweeting that transgender women can’t change their biological sex. Rowling tweeted in support of her. The horror. The immediate reaction of the cancel culture mob on Twitter was intense.

All Rowling did was to break her silence on Twitter since September to post a tweet in support of Maya Forstater after she lost a case against her employer, Centre for Global Development (CGD). Forstater lost a case against her employer after the think tank fired her over a tweet. The tweet was deemed transphobic by CGD. A judge in a U.K. employment tribunal ruled against her complaint.

Vince Vaughn faces backlash after shaking Trump’s hand at football game

Vince Vaughn is facing a backlash after being filmed shaking hands with Donald Trump at a football game.

The Wedding Crashers actor was sat alongside Trump and first lady Melania Trump in a private box at the National Championship Game in New Orleans.

The video, captured by journalist Timothy Burke, shows Vaughn speaking to the pair and Trump listening intently. Vaughn then stands up and leaves, but not before shaking Trump’s hand and exchanging smiles.

“I’m very sorry to have to share this video with you,” Burke wrote alongside his video. “All of it, every part of it.”

On Twitter, many expressed their dismay at Vaughn’s actions. “Vince Vaughn is one of my favourites,” one tweet read. “I always knew he was Republican but this, so gross. I don’t need a Wedding Crashers sequal [sic] anymore.”

Sit down with a nice glass of beer or wine and read this comedic piece penned by a current snowflake. Going through life as a fearful victim must be exhausting.

I went to a UCLA seminar on triggering — and was triggered by a MAGA hat

So the MAGA hat triggers in me a slideshow of sorrow and shock from today’s volatile and divisive world, and I’m no longer capable of being curious or compassionate for all the experiences that make this man who he is: a human (like me) desperately trying to belong and survive, who (like me) is socialized by complex forces outside of his awareness and control, and who (like me) may feel fear, grief, powerlessness or shame hiding under his armor of anger.

Instead I slip into a false refuge of certainty. I know this guy — he’s a fascist, racist, misogynistic, homophobe.

Florida man may have killed Trump-supporting boss over politics

A Florida construction worker is accused of killing his boss during an argument that may have been sparked by politics, authorities said.

Mason Trever Toney, 28, was arrested by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office late Monday in the fatal stabbing of his friend and boss, William Steven Knight, 28, at a work site near Orlando along the Florida Turnpike, deputies announced on Twitter.

Knight and Toney had been arguing earlier that morning as they rode into work together, possibly about their opposing political views – with Toney “anti-government” and Knight a supporter of President Donald Trump, according to Detective Fabian Ramirez in an affidavit.

They are gonna need more than deep analysis to cure their wokeness, but it provides more endless comedy.

How to Avoid Despair

The temptation at this point is to give up and accept the president’s belief that he will be able to get away with anything. And indeed, much of the press coverage of the acquittal and Trump’s promises of vengeance amounted to a shrug: Well, what can you do, really? “Until the voters render their verdict, in November,” Susan Glasser wrote in The New Yorker, “Trump will be the President he has always wanted to be: inescapable, all-powerful, and completely unaccountable.” The New York Times described how “the self-described counterpuncher appears eager to prosecute his case against his prosecutors … Conciliation and acknowledging mistakes are not in his nature.” Perhaps a Washington Post headline best captured the sense of deflation: “Yeah, Trump didn’t learn any new lessons from impeachment.”

An exhausted shrug is a fair response to the bleakness of everything that has taken place over the three years of the Trump presidency, and especially to a week like this one. There is always a feeling of loss in the wake of a failure. The compelling way forward is to accept the inevitability that there will be other failures and keep pushing anyway.

NY City Diversity Committee Says Programs for Gifted Students Are 'Racist'

All children are gifted — just in different ways

 It concerns what I have no qualms about calling the institutional racism and elitism of so-called “gifted” education. These programs exist in school districts across the country, and they exist for one compelling political reason: To mollify middle- and upper-middle class parents (mostly white) who would otherwise flee to private schools or to the suburbs.

These are parents who believe their children are superior to other children and therefore need to be in a separate program, insulated from the hoi polloi.

'I don't know I'd have had a baby if I'd known about climate change': Orange Is The New Black star Yael Stone breaks down as she questions decision to have child just a year ago

Orange Is The New Black star Yael Stone recently returned to Australia over concerns about the carbon footprint she was creating by travelling to the US to work.

And on Sunday, the 35-year-old actress broke down in tears after being asked a question about climate change at the All About Women festival held at the Sydney Opera House.

Yael has a one-year-old daughter, Pemau Stone Bancroft, but said she may not have had a child if she had known about the climate impact and the uncertain future they would be born into.

Mayor Snowflake Gets Eaten by the Mob...the tragedy of identity politics metastasizing onto actual policy is that Minneapolis will now turn into Baltimore on steroids...People will die...

Oh, grow up, Mayor Frey: Devine

Minneapolis’ soy boy of a mayor, Jacob Frey, proves that no matter how much you abase yourself to the mob, you can never be woke enough.

In a scene reminiscent of a Maoist struggle session, he stood before two black protest organizers Saturday and confessed through a mask into a microphone that he was “coming to grips with my own brokenness.”

But the organizers, standing on a platform above him, weren’t interested in providing therapy for this 38-year-old man-child.

“Yes or no?” asked a woman with a microphone. “Will you commit to defunding the Minneapolis Police Department … We don’t want no more police.”

Poor Frey couldn’t bring himself to say yes, so his fate was sealed.

“Get the f–k out of here!” she snarled, and he was forced into a ritual walk of shame through the jeering crowd as they chanted, “Go home, Jacob!”

The only thing missing was a sign around his neck listing his transgressions.

Gone with the Wind removed from HBO Max

Gone with the Wind has been taken off HBO Max following calls for it to be removed from the US streaming service.

HBO Max said the 1939 film was "a product of its time" and depicted "ethnic and racial prejudices" that "were wrong then and are wrong today".

It said the film would return to the platform at an unspecified date with a "discussion of its historical context".

Set during and after the American Civil War, Gone with the Wind has long been attacked for its depiction of slavery.

Based on the novel by Margaret Mitchell, it features slave characters who seem contented with their lot and who remain loyal to their former owners after slavery's abolition.

Gone with the Wind received 10 Oscars and remains the highest-grossing movie of all time when its takings are adjusted for inflation.

Hattie McDaniel became the first black actress to be nominated for, and win, an Academy Award for her role as domestic servant Mammy.

Prospector Pete and now this?  And Wilson was a Dem...Snowflakes will eat their own...

Is it time to change the name of Woodrow Wilson High School?


A petition is circulating on change.org right now, with the title “Woodrow Wilson was a racist—Let’s find a better person to name a Long Beach school after.”

As of Tuesday afternoon, more than 1,000 people had signed the petition, addressed to the Long Beach Unified School District Board of Education and Wilson principal Kim Holland.

The reason for wanting to lose the name? Wilson was a racist. And not your basic disgruntled neighbor sort of racist but, rather, “extremely racist—even by the standards of his time,” according to a 2015 article in Vox, which was written in favor of a drive spearheaded by students at Princeton University who were demanding that Wilson’s name be removed from all programs and buildings at the university, including the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and Wilson College, a residential college for undergrads.

Petition calls for Disney Parks to change theme of Splash Mountain

There are growing calls for Walt Disney World to change the theme of its popular log flume ride Splash Mountain.

The attraction is based on the 1946 Disney film “Song of the South," which has been criticized for its stereotypes of black people.

If you haven’t heard of the film, you’re not alone. The movie has been removed from all viewing platforms and was not included on Disney+.

Splash Mountain follows happy-go-lucky Br’er Rabbit as he looks for his “laughing place.” All the while, Br’er Bear and Br’er Fox are in hot pursuit Br’er Rabbit. The cruise ends with a 5-story splashdown into a thorny Briar Patch.

The film features Disney’s iconic tune “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah”.

Numerous petitions have popped up online recently, CNN reports, calling for Disney to remove all mentions of the movie from the attraction.

One idea bouncing around social media is a total theme change to the ride -- and fans are looking to Disney’s film “The Princess and the Frog”.

Disney’s 2009 film about a frog prince wanting to be human again was the first Disney film to feature a black princess and the last to feature traditional hand-drawn animation.

One Disney fan went to Twitter to exhibit his concept for a “Princess and the Frog” themed ride.

As of Thursday, over 8,000 people signed a Change.org petition to retheme the attraction.

The attraction is located at both Disney’s Magic Kingdom and Disneyland in California.

Cracker Barrel under attack because it ‘feels’ like a racist place, with a racist name


First they came for “Cops” and “Gone With The Wind,” and now they appear to be gunning for Cracker Barrel. Sort of.

Amid the Maoist-like cultural revolution currently happening across the states, there seems to be an emerging movement to smear (and eventually possibly cancel) the iconic Southern restaurant chain Cracker Barrel.

It reportedly began with April Reign, the far-left activist reportedly responsible for launching the stunningly racist #OscarsSoWhite hashtag.

Responding to a Twitter user who’d asked if people have “ever walk[ed] into a place that just FEELS racist,” Reign responded by citing Cracker Barrel.

Look:

Black or African American race constitutes 13.4% of the U.S. population today while whites are 76.5%, or 5.7 times as many.

https://www.census.gov/quickfacts/fact/table/US/IPE120218 

The U.S. Department of Justice reports that in 2018, 6,380 blacks were arrested for murder or manslaughter compared with 5,280 whites.

https://www.ojjdp.gov/ojstatbb/crime/ucr.asp?table_in=2

DOJ statistics show that in 1986, the admission of black prisoners was 342 per 100,000 inmates compared with 63 white prisoners per 100,000 inmates.  If the incarceration rate were proportional to population, the number of black prisoners would be 11 per 100,000 instead of 342.  It has increased for over a century.

https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/nij/125618.pdf 

These horrific statistics continue to be excused and in fact promoted by liberals consumed with their misplaced sense of moral superiority and posturing.

Don't listen to me.  Listen to Malcolm X and Frederick Douglass.

That white person that you see calling himself a liberal is the most dangerous person in the western hemisphere. He's the most deceitful, he's like a fox. - Malcolm X (1925 - 1965)

I am a Republican, a black dyed in the wool Republican, and I never intend to belong to any other party than the party of freedom and progress." - Frederick Douglass (1818 - 1895) 

https://www.brainyquote.com/authors/frederick-douglass-quotes_2

White lives matter too, and many more whites are murdered by blacks than blacks by whites.  Blacks kill ten times more black murder victims than whites do.   Until the Left stops pandering to black Americans, and inciting divisiveness, there can be no improvement.

When Disney announced in 1987 that they were showing Song of the South for the last time, I rushed to my local theater. When it ended, there was not a dry eye in the packed theatre. In the film, Uncle Remus and the white kids showed genuine affection for each other, something that could never have happened in real life under Liberal Orthodoxy. The stories of Briar Rabbit, Fox, Bear, etc. were actually based on similar stories from West Africa that were brought over by the ancestors of today's African Americans so ironically by banning the movie they actually suppressed traditional African folklore.

No point in begging for handouts from whites because they are all racists, liberals and conservatives. Malcom X was absolutely right that white liberals are far more dangerous because white liberal racism is opaque and devious whereas conservative racism is out in the open. We still don't know who assassinated Malcolm X.

At some point we start setting some crazy precedents. So if you delay exams for black students because of a Black death, will you feat exams for Asian students for an Asian death, etc.

Will the white student get the deferral?

I’m all for fairness equality, but we can’t create other inequalities in the pursuit of one equality.

The stampede to wokeness and guilt by this generation provides never ending comedy...

Ricky Gervais Shreds Celebrities Who Put Out Cringeworthy ‘I Take Responsibility’ Racism PSA

What is perhaps most startling about the PSA is a complete lack of insincerity coming off the screen. These sheltered Hollywood liberals are clearly acting as they deliver their pre-written lines.

This is, after all, their job.

“Black people are being slaughtered in the streets, killed in their own homes,” the video conveys. “These are our brothers and sisters, our friends, our family. We are done watching them die. We are no longer bystanders. We will not be idle. Enough is enough.”

Or maybe there is something else about this video besides the dramatic takes that really makes it stand out?

Gervais seems to think so, eviscerating his virtue signaling colleagues in just seven words.

“Terrible lack of diversity in this video,” he tweeted.

Terrible lack of diversity in this video. https://t.co/TY7zZGVcjd

So I need some clarification here, especially because Kings and morekaos thanked you for this post (and morekaos' follow-up about being the "stupidest thing" he has seen).

This thread is for topics about people who are easily offended... hence the Snowflakes title. But I think this is an important issue.

Do you 3 think that removing branding that is based on racial stereotypes is bad? With the current events, I agree with what companies are doing and addressing the removal of racial sensitive images from their products. You three don't?

Two months ago, Land O' Lakes removed the Native American character from their products, the Cleveland Indians removed their Chief Wahoo character from their branding in 2019... do you consider that also "snowflakey"?

Mrs. Butterworth isn't black, she's white but still has to go cuz some people think she's black.

If there weren't black people on products then of course we're racist cuz there aren't black people represented.

When is Fresh off the Boat going to be labelled racist and taken off the air? When is Disneyland going to be the object of protests because Merryl Streep and Walt's own family branded him a racist? When is Archie Bunker's chair going to be removed from the Smithsonian? When is John Wayne Airport going to be renamed?

yup.  if sales were really suffering, then sure change your logo.  but these companies are just doing it because they're virtue signaling to the loudest voices and will likely lose long-term customers because of it rather than gain "woke" children who are just looking to make headlines.

The market, and only the market, should decide whether a product exists or not. The very notion of "correct thinking" is literally the most un-American concept imaginable. Other countries have ministries of information, thought police, etc. to make sure your heart and brain are pure. This country was founded on a rejection of those principles and over the last two centuries have welcomed millions of people fleeing such places. There is more to life than just food and shelter.

Was the Taco Bell chihuahua considered racist? I don’t remember. I was fan of it personally and did not find it offensive. But I am not PC and generally aren’t offended by most things. Except being told to wear a mask :-)

I do believe in a meritocracy and don’t believe things should be equally representative of races in America. X% of America is race A and therefore X% of CEOs should be Race A.

Where was the outcry for the Asian population in the US when they were being called names and getting assaulted because of covid? Where is the outcry to support Asians that aren’t allowed into the best schools because there are already too many Asians? That seems pretty racist.

Where is the movement to increase the number of Hispanic CEOs in business? Hispanics are about 18% of the US population? Yet make up only 4.3% of executives compared to 3.2% for black and 5.9% for Asians, the rest are white. 

With that said, I do think black people get the short the end of the stick because of various stereotypes and/or racism. I’m hopeful one day black people get a fair shake, but I’m hopeful everyone gets a fair shake.

Speaking for himself.  I doubt that three people posting here practice racism or stereotyping as he intimates.  It's NOT stereotyping to recognize that black Americans:
1.  Represent a disproportionately large number of prison inmates due to the felonies they commit, which are in no small part due to
2.  The excusing and patronizing they have gotten from the quertys and other Leftists throughout the United States.
3.  Any effort by a black American to study and work hard gets them smacked down for "acting white."  THAT is racism, but we're not the ones practicing it.
4.  Too many black men who don't go to prison don't marry the hundreds of thousands of black women they get pregnant.
5. Too many black men who don't go to prison don't support their own children and bring them up in a loving home with a mother and a father.  This dysfunction is THE cause of their problems more than any other, and Democrats deny it relentlessly, playing politics with millions of lives.

The hatefulness qwerty practiced months ago in his remarks to me is a festering sore that won't go away.
