I’m White, You’re Black: Get Over It
I’m White, You’re Black: Get Over It
The faux high-dudgeon over nutburger Roseanne’s racist tweet (and when wasn’t she a nutburger?) and unseemly glee over her show being cancelled is just another round in the Maolings game of identity politics.
And, of course, the same Maolings are blaming President Trump for Roseanne’s unacceptable tweet.
Rasputin Jarrett would have you believe that eight years of President IWonPenPhone was a golden era of racial healing and cooperation. Excuse me a moment for a fit of giggles.
Yesterday, Starbucks – your favorite place for “woke” burnt coffee – engaged in some very public self-flagellation by closing yesterday and subjecting its employees to four hours of cultural Marxism.
One of the first videos criticized the concept of being “color-blind,” insisting that no one is able to ignore race. The proper concept to strive for, the video explained, is to be “color-brave,” a term the employee said was never specifically defined. The video made sure to underscore that racism and racial biases are deeply rooted in American history. […] [T]hey then watched a video with various experts discussing “implicit versus explicit bias.” Though the experts “openly acknowledged the fact that with implicit bias you aren’t even aware that it is occurring,” the experts said we are all still responsible for trying to recognize our unconscious thought processes. As part of this section, participants were required to take the Stroop test “in order to teach us about how our unconscious brain works.”
Ooooo! Implicit bias = racist behavior! Let’s force you to take a test that has absolutely no value at all in predicting your behavior! But hey, we be woke!
Academia has become a hot-bed of racial animus, though when the Left does it, it’s not only ok, but even segregation is celebrated.
The hypervigilance of looking for reasons to be offended is part of toxic identity politics. When actual incidents of racism can’t be found, they are invented.
Racism is big business. And Leftist snake-oil providers are not going to do anything that will cure their captive market.
Whether it was the Civil Rights marches of the 1960s or the Gay Rights movement of the 1970s, the main point these movements promoted was that individuals should be treated as individuals. Melanin level, sex, sexual orientation be no more an important identifying factor as height or eye color.
That is what is meant when someone says “I don’t see race.” It’s a commitment to evaluate a person as an individual and not ascribe talent, ethics, morals or political viewpoints based on some inherent characteristic.
Witness how truly hateful and angry the Left is towards any individual they claim as part of their pet-groups who dare to dissent from jot or tittle of Leftist ideology.
America, for all its stumbles and failings, is still the least racist, mixed-race country in the world.
My skin may have a different melanin level than yours. So what? Your behavior determines your character. I will judge you on that.
Are you afraid of that kind of judgement? Clean your room and grow up.
The left’s controversy of the day. Unless you subscribe to their groupthink you’re unworthy and therefore a racist, misogynist, bigoted hater. I wake up each morning, my curiosity piqued, wondering what these idiots will come up with next and why we’ll even acknowledge it and defending it. Just ignore them. By writing about it they control the narrative. Stop paying attention to these vermin.
The problem is, these vermin are controlling the narrative. The stupid ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ is still making the rounds.
The post published earlier regarding Eden Bakery is a prime example of how narrative runs w/o facts and a huge dose of reality.
We, IMO, ignore the vermin at our peril.
Roseanne? So hot! Do Want!
Today I was told on Twitter how I must study the history of racism in America to truly understand how to respond. I saw screw that, I’ll just treat people as individuals.
the funny thing is, if you actually study racism in the US, you’ll find that that’re full of shit, and that the left is actually the racists.. Democrats were the racists during and after the civil war, passed the first gun control laws to keep guns out of the hands of recently freed slaves, instituted jim crow laws, and fought against the civil rights act, until Lyndon Johnson said to them in the oval office (Why the right doesn’t use that tape over and over again is beyond me!!) , to paraphrase “pass this law, and I’ll have those Ni@@#&S voting democrat for the next 100 yrs”… or just google Robert Byrd… doesn’t take much more than that.. what they really mean is study the narrative they put out, and swallow it without question…
Sorry for the long post, not enough coffee yet!
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
I try to live by that. If your character sucks, I won’t want anything to do with you. Your color does not matter. I try to see people for who they are, not what they look like. Assholes come in all races, creeds, colors, sexes and sexual persuasions. Nobody is special and nobody gets an exception. And if my dog doesn’t like you, I don’t like you. He’s an amazing judge of character.
