My Best Man was black, Generic Leftist. I'm white.
What color was YOUR best man?  Let's see a picture of your wedding day.
Do you even know which bathroom to use - male or female?

How many masks do you wear for "Covid protection"?

I assembled this compilation of science for Leftists like you:

Snowflakes war on words continues...can't even spell them or be cancelled....


Scrabble ban on racial slurs angers top players
Three prominent members of the global Scrabble players’ organisation quit in response to the changes

Scrabble has banned racial slurs from scoring points on the family favourite board game — to the ire of libertarians and scrabble players.

In total, over 400 dictionary defined terms have vanished from the game after one of Scrabble’s owners, Mattel, said there are no other games where players “can win by using a racial epithet”.

There is no one list of the banned terms, but online Scrabble check websites allow players to type in a word to see if it can be played.

Various slurs against black, Pakistani, Irish and white people have been axed but some offensive terms against Australian aboriginal communities are still valid, according to one campaigner.

British author Darryl Francis resigned from the World English-Language Scrabble Players Association (WESPA) because he said Mattel had forced the changes on the game.

Well the AP says it so it must be woke....

‘Mistress’ becomes woke brigade’s latest target

The mistress is cracking the whip on language.

The Associated Press Stylebook, which has traditionally set standards for language usage within the media landscape, mystified Twitter users Tuesday when it tweeted a reality-bending, wrist-slapping admonishment.

“Don’t use the term mistress for a woman who is in a long-term sexual relationship with, and is financially supported by, a man who is married to someone else. Instead, use an alternative like companion, friend or lover on first reference and provide additional details later,” the tweet read.

Of course, goomah is a much better term.

The announcement led many to wonder which mistress had taken control of the account, and what is truly wrong with the word mistress.

Don't use the term mistress for a woman who is in a long-term sexual relationship with, and is financially supported by, a man who is married to someone else. Instead, use an alternative like companion, friend or lover on first reference and provide additional details later.

Self-driving cars inherently RACIST? Autonomous vehicles may struggle to recognise dark-skinned faces in the dark, experts warn
Law Commission warns of the inherent bias in current self-driving technology

AI systems may also be biased against women and the mobility-impaired, it says
Self-driving vehicle market will be worth 'nearly £42 billion to the UK by 2035'

Self-driving vehicles may be inherently racist because they're unable to detect dark-skinned faces in the dark, experts have warned.

The Law Commission says racial bias 'has crept into the design of vehicles and automated systems', which could have disastrous consequences.

In the Name of Equity, California Will Discourage Students Who Are Gifted at Math
The new framework aims to keep everyone learning at the same level for as long as possible.

California's Department of Education is working on a new framework for K-12 mathematics that discourages gifted students from enrolling in accelerated classes that study advanced concepts like calculus.

The draft of the framework is hundreds of pages long and covers a wide range of topics. But its overriding concern is inequity. The department is worried that too many students are sorted into different math tracks based on their natural abilities, which leads some to take calculus by their senior year of high school while others don't make it past basic algebra. The department's solution is to prohibit any sorting until high school, keeping gifted kids in the same classrooms as their less mathematically inclined peers until at least grade nine.

"The inequity of mathematics tracking in California can be undone through a coordinated approach in grades 6–12," reads a January 2021 draft of the framework. "In summary, middle-school students are best served in heterogeneous classes."

As usual, the unintended consequence will be to actually create more inequity as more parents choose private school. Even if they stay in public school parents will just continue to supplement with tutoring.

As usual, the government can’t stay out of its own way. It seems their goal continues is to disincentivize hard work and achievement through stupid shit like this and higher taxes

Spain’s postal service receives backlash for unequal pricing of ‘equality stamps’ that highlight racial inequality

State-owned Correos España this week issued a set of four stamps in different skin-colored tones. The darker the stamp, the lower the price. The lightest color costs 1.60 euros ($1.95). The darkest one costs 0.70 euros ($0.85).

The postal service calls them “Equality Stamps” and introduced them on the anniversary of George Floyd being killed by a police officer in Minneapolis. It said the stamps “reflect an unfair and painful reality that shouldn’t be allowed” and that every letter or parcel sent with them would “send a message against racial inequality.”

Leave Apple Pie out of it Snowflakes!!!...That's Cakeist!!

Now American apple pie is cancelled! The Guardian links it to the 'vast and ongoing genocide of indigenous people', the slave trade and even calls traditional gingham cloth it sits on cultural appropriation

Guardian writer Raj Patel said the classic American dessert was born of slavery and colonialism
His article highlighted how apple trees had been brought to the west from Asia
He claims they were used as symbols of property by settlers who arrived in America, and forced indigenous people off their lands
Patel also took aim at the sugar crust, and even the gingham cloth an apple pie is traditionally cooled on   
But his opinion piece, first published last month, was widely mocked online 
One sarcastic tweeter claimed the piece was 'going for gold in the oppression olympics'
Another joked that apple pie was also 'glutenist' and discriminated against people with wheat intolerances

You've got to be kidding.....

No longer 'Night at the Museum': Statue of Theodore Roosevelt - which has stood outside NYC's Museum of Natural History for 80 years - will be removed over racism complaints
The New York City Public Design Commission voted unanimously to relocate the statue, which sits at the entrance of The American Museum of Natural History
The statue depicts the former president on horseback with a Native American man and an African man flanking the horse
The statue will go to a yet-to-be-designated cultural institution dedicated to Roosevelt's life and legacy
Roosevelt's support of eugenics may have played a role in the decision as anti-racism protests took hold of the country following the killing of George Floyd
The bronze statue designed by James Earle Fraser has stood at the museum's Central Park West entrance since 1940
The city and museum previously agreed to remove the statue, but because of its place on city land, a public hearing was required on the manner
The controversial statue has been defaced at least twice, including once in 2017, when it was doused with red liquid representing blood

Being different, or “exotic” (which for food is actually good) is now racist? …devolved into tragic comedy have we.

Washington Post food writer sparks backlash by saying that calling foreign food 'exotic' reinforces xenophobia and racism


'Its use lengthens the metaphysical distance between one group of humans and another, and, in so doing, reinforces xenophobia and racism,' she wrote
Galarza also cited a professor who said calling food 'exotic' is linked to 'the history of colonialism and slavery'
Her commentary was met with swift criticism from Twitter users who accused her of provoking a 'woke war' 
'You're trying too hard to find bigotry,' one critic wrote

So Princeton is now teaching (in a class) that technology (and in particular soap dispensers) are structurally racist!!!  You can't make that up,  That is what a $200,000.00 Ivy league sheepskin gets ya... ;D ;D >:D

University Course Focuses On Fixing ‘Racist’ Soap Dispensers
Core principle is that ‘racial biases’ are built into technology

A Princeton University course centered around correcting ‘racist’ technology has seen students focusing on soap dispensers that ‘don’t see dark skin’ and cameras that can’t pick out black faces, according to a Campus Reform report.

The course ran for 15 weeks and saw students attempting to overturn what was described as ‘racial biases built in tech’ and instead developing ‘actively anti-racist solutions’.

Students were tasked to “build and test systems that embrace anti-racism as a core value.”

The idea that faulty soap dispensers are a signifier of institutional racism has been pushed by Ruha Benjamin, Princeton professor of African American Studies in her book Race After Technology: Abolitionist Tools for the New Jim Code which posits that “emerging technologies can reinforce White supremacy and deepen social inequity.”

Scientists Ask Americans to Help Change Racist Insect Names


Scientists are asking for help to rename racist insects, as they seek to remove terms which are "inappropriate or offensive."

The Entomological Society of America (ESA) announced in June the common names for the moth Lymantria dispar and the ant Aphaenogaster araneoides, "Gypsy moth" and "Gypsy ant," had been removed from their Common Names of Insects and Related Organisms List.

The ESA confirmed the names had been scrapped as they contained an "ethnic slur," and were "identified as containing a derogatory term for the Romani people."

The move comes as the ESA spearheaded the Better Common Names Project, which will review and replace common insect names which don't meet their standards, confirming it will change only the most "problematic names."
