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

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
