How To End White Privilege

Brandon Tatum lays total waste to the concept of “white privilege.” Unfortunately, despite the title of the video, he does not explain how to make it go away:

True enough, the concept of white privilege is BS. It does not benefit blacks, but rather encourages them to wallow in a victim mentality that results in underachievement. However, so long as Cultural Marxists can use this bogus notion to tear the country apart, it isn’t going anywhere.

Most Moronic Political Prediction of 2019

When a year ends, it gets summed up by lists. The libs at Politico present the worst political predictions of 2019. Some are good for a laugh:

• “By the end of 2019, the president of the United States will be Nancy Pelosi”

• “Beto O’Rourke will be the next president of the United States”

• House Democrats and Senate Republicans will “secure a number of legislative victories … [and] meet on middle ground”

• Kamala Harris will win the Democratic presidential nomination

• Trump will nominate Jared Kushner for attorney general

Others are staggeringly stupid. Presenting the dumbest of the collection:

• In 2019, there will be a “move toward forcing African-Americans to secure 19th century Black Codes-type passes that they must carry in public”

That prediction was made by Ricky L. Jones, Professor, Graduate Director & Chair, Pan-African Studies Department, University of Louisville, in the Louisville Courier Journal.

He gets paid to spew stuff like that. This is passed off as education. Similarly, his cushy job is passed off as oppression.

Harvard Prof: Police Oppress Blacks In Utero

Despite its massive endowment of over $40 billion, federal taxpayers pour a fortune into ostensibly private Harvard University. The public receives useful scientific research in return. It also receives pernicious moonbattery so insane that only within the ivy-smothered ivory towers of academia could it pass the laugh test.

Via the Wall Street Journal:

It was a startling claim, published this month by a Harvard sociologist in the journal Science Advances: “Police killings of unarmed blacks substantially decrease the birth weight and gestational age of black infants residing nearby.” That reinforces “the intergenerational transmission of disadvantage,” Joscha Legewie wrote, because preterm birth can affect things like cognitive development.

Careful now, Professor Legewie. Even if you blame it on mythical banana republic style police executions, it is serious thoughtcrime to suggest that the black ghetto residents bred by the welfare state are not just as intelligent as privileged rocket scientists.

As Mark Twain noted, there are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics. Legewie supports his preposterous assertion with numbers extracted from 3.9 million birth records. Strangely, the phenomenon he reports only affects the race at the top of the Cultural Marxist caste system.

There was no ill effect on white or Hispanic infants. No ill effect from police killings of white or Hispanic suspects. No ill effect “for police killings of armed blacks.” If the hypothesis was that nearby police violence raises maternal stress, wouldn’t it show up after any trauma in the neighborhood?

Let’s not get bogged down in logic here. Despite the pseudoscientific trappings, this is an exercise in theology. Elitist liberals literally worship blacks. They are elevated to sacred status by their supposed oppression at the hands of the police, who are agents of unclean, demonic whites. In the liberal religion, the Sociology Department serves as a seminary.

That’s why Legewie is easily able to wave away objections with flourishes of dogma:

The professor’s explanation was that the trend must be “driven by perceptions of discrimination and structural racism.” White mothers don’t carry that burden.

White mothers wear the stain of privilege. That settles it.

Even academia has some standards. A week after publication, the study was retracted after errors in the classification of armed versus unarmed suspects were revealed. Correcting the errors made the desired effect disappear.

The commentary that greeted Legewie’s bogus study should also be retracted. Fellow sociologists hailed it as “clearly, methodologically, rigorously documented,” presented it as evidence that the fictional oppression of blacks by the police should be treated as a public health issue, and squawked piously about institutions denying blacks their humanity.

For serious scholarship on the relationship between blacks and the police, refer to Heather Mac Donald, who confirms that police are the best friends blacks have, due to the rampant crime in their neighborhoods. By pointing out factual reality that detracts from liberal theology, Mac Donald has made herself highly unwelcome on campus (see here, here, and here).

As Heather Mac Donald has found,

In fact, black civilians are shot less, compared with whites, than their rates of violent crime would predict.

This is probably because the liberal establishment has created an atmosphere of terror whereby police hesitate to defend their own lives from black criminals, knowing that the media and local authorities will vehemently side with the bad guys. So the police stand back, and let cities turn into savage Mad Max hellscapes like Baltimore.

Mac Donald further notes,

There was no evidence that officer race (i.e., whiteness) predicted the race of the shooting victim or that there was anti-black bias in fatal police shootings.

The entire Black Lives Matter narrative that police target blacks like Central American hit squads is a malicious lie. Scholarship based on this adolescent premise is worse than useless. Yet we are sure to see more of it from Harvard.

Racist Attack on Racist Food Cart

After Democrats like Joe Biden exploit the welfare state and mass immigration to achieve the liberal holy grail of minority status for whites, we will live in a harmonious rainbow utopia free of racism. Or maybe not.

The Oregonian tells the tale of Sierra McDonald’s one-woman war against a Mexican food cart in ultraliberal Portland:

The food cart operator told police that McDonald ordered food, then refused to pay for it, saying it was too expensive.

McDonald then told the operator to “go back to Mexico,” poured soda on her head, and on the grill where she was cooking chicken, the charging documents say.

Annoyed at the food cart operator for calling the police on her, McDonald later returned and menaced employees with a sharp wooden stake.

McDonald also allegedly tried to fling chicken off the grill where employees were cooking and spit toward the cooking area. Documents said employees had to throw away 12 whole chickens due to possible contamination.

At first police were unable to arrest her, because she refused to come out of her apartment across the street. It seems they don’t knock in doors anymore, but just ask nicely for maniacs to come out and be arrested.

McDonald, who is black, told officers that she believed the food cart was racist because “they served white people faster than they served her.”

That would be consistent with the liberal narrative relentlessly inculcated by the establishment media. No doubt it will be used in her defense at the trial.

NYC’s Beacon High School Succumbs to Chaos

If you have something you earned taken away from you and given to someone who did not earn it due to Affirmative Action, make sure not to complain. That could enrage a mob against you and even cause all hell to break loose, as has been happening at Manhattan’s elite Beacon High School.

Via the New York Post:

Friday’s protest was set off by allegedly “racist remarks” that a black student claimed he overheard a white Jewish girl make in a confidential meeting Tuesday with two white Jewish guidance counselors. …

“The context of my private conversation included my disapproval about the unfairness of students who were accepted to college without meeting the rigorous criteria that I and others worked so hard to achieve, because they might be athletes, afforded financial scholarships, and/or get seats based on affirmative action programs, as opposed to academic achievement as the first and only criteria,” the girl explained in a statement.

The black student barged into the meeting and berated the girl and her counselors, causing a commotion.

The girl who dared issue a peep against the outrageous injustice of Affirmative Action has been assailed on social media.

One Instagram post accused her of saying “minorities stole her spot,” and “Im not gonna go to schools for black and brown people or ppl who are retarded.” It concludes, “…she’s definitely Messing with wrong group of ppl. She CLEARLY don’t know how we grew up cuz that bitch looking to be destroyed LITERALLY.”

Black teacher Demetrius Green told a cafeteria full of cheering students to boycott the school:

“What we’re asking of all students: Do not come to school that day to show solidarity for the support of not just students of color but all students at Beacon in providing a safe space.”

A “safe space” means a place where nothing that could conceivably be construed as politically incorrect is ever permitted.

“Until the demands are met,” bellowed Green, “students are not to return to school.”

Regarding demands,

On Sunday, some students posted a list of “Official Demands,” including a call for Beacon to publicly apologize for “allowing racism to fester” for years; ”probes of the guidance counselors” who met with the white girl; mandated workshops on “implicit bias” for students and staff; and ensuring that faculty hiring “mirrors the diversity” of NYC’s students.

It also demands that students who take part in the boycott or sit-in “will not face any repercussions.”

As usual, educrats have stood up to the leftist bullying with firmness and integrity. Just kidding:

Beacon principal Ruth Lacey emailed students Sunday evening saying she was “moved by the passion’’ of the cafeteria speakers…

Beacon is only 14% black. But if that 14% is pushy enough, it can do to Beacon High School what was done to the University of Missouri (see here and here).

White Girl Murdered, Minorities Hardest Hit

Last week Tessa Majors, an 18-year-old white girl, was stabbed to death in Morningside Park, which separates Harlem from Ivy League Columbia University. She attended affiliated Barnard College. The culprits appear to be Harlem residents 13 and 14 years old. The incident has the New York Times weeping bitter tears — for the plight of minorities:

The university, which has a huge endowment and owns scores of buildings, has been criticized by some longtime residents as a gentrifying force.

Liberals use the word “gentrification” to spin cleaning up slums as something bad.

Maria Lopez, a “longtime park neighbor,” is quoted as follows:

“People with money think, ‘I have the right to walk through here,’” she said.

The implication: arrogant gentrifying white people get what they deserve.

Having established that Tessa had it coming, the Times moves on to identify the true victims in the story:

Some students said they were worried less about their own safety than about the attack being used to portray Harlem as unsafe.

“A lot of response I’m getting from people is, ‘Oh, be careful of that area,’” said [Amanda] Ong, [a] Columbia senior, adding that such a response was “racially coded.”

Frets Columbia student Matthew Lim,

“We know that, just because of one incident, we shouldn’t make broad-stroke judgments about people who live here, but it’s hard if it affects a member of our community.”

The Knockout Game appears to be popular in the park:

Earlier this year, several people reported that they had been approached from behind in the park and punched by young people.

The euphemism “young people” might also qualify as “racially coded.”

The attacks are for both fun and profit:

Since June, five people reported being robbed on or near the staircase at 116th Street and Morningside Drive, near the spot where Ms. Majors was killed.

It must be Columbia students preying on the saintly Harlem Residents of Color. To assume otherwise would be to make broad-stroke judgments.

As predictable as the Times, the city government reacted by denouncing the racists who prefer law and order to anarchy

The local city councilman, Mark Levine … said that some of the messages his office received from constituents after the attack were “laced with ugly and inappropriate racial comments” — some demanding the return of stop and frisk and a more aggressive style of policing more common two decades ago.

Levine needn’t worry. De Blasio won’t try to make the streets safe with proactive policing. That would put him in the position of having to grovel for forgiveness like Michael Bloomberg the next time he runs for president.

No doubt Netflix will produce a series canonizing Tessa Majors’ murderers, as it did with the Central Park Five in When They See Us (see here and here).

Miss USA, Miss Teen USA, Miss America, Miss Universe All Black

What are the odds? Miss USA, Miss Teen USA, Miss America, and Miss Universe are all black women. CNN can hardly contain its righteous satisfaction, heavily implying that they all deserve to get the prize not for their beauty but for being black, because racism.

Blacks comprise 13% of the American population.

They ought to post a sign outside beauty contests: No Caucasians Need Apply.

Nothing means anything anymore, because everything is rigged to promote political correctness. It would be better to take third place in an honest contest than get awarded the top prize by patronizing fools in rigged one.

Evanston to Fund Slavery Reparations with Marijuana Sales

Some extremes of moonbat insanity can only be achieved in college towns — such as Berkeley, Austin, and Evanston, Illinois, home of Northwestern University, where local bureaucrats plan to use marijuana sales to fund slavery reparations.

The Northwest Ordinance abolished slavery in the region in 1787; Evanston did not become a city until 1892. But of course, reparations aren’t about slavery, since slaves and their masters have been gone for generations. It is about circumventing the welfare state middle man to pay people directly for being black. This is a high priority in Evanston, because to the horror of local liberals, the black population has been declining.

Imagine trying to produce infinite electricity by plugging a surge protector into itself. In Evanston, this principle will be put into practice. Blacks given free money to reward them for their politically preferred skin color will presumably spend some of it on marijuana, which will be taxed to provide them with more free money to spend on more marijuana. Ingenious, if only the numbers would add up. But with leftist economics, they never do.

Via Sultan Knish:

“We are at this point because we have done a lot in Evanston to acknowledge discrimination and oppression and racism, and we have had resolutions and various policies and different honorific actions over the lifetime of Evanston, and it has just not been enough,” Alderperson Robin Rue Simmons declared.

Continuing Affirmative Action and the $trillions flushed down the War on Poverty prove that nothing could ever be enough — especially not for a person of politically preferred pigmentation like Robin Rue Simmons.

“I’m offering no apologies,” Alderperson Robin Rue Simmons huffed. “This is for black Evanston residents.”

No word on what kind of racial certification would be required of residents to prove their eligibility.

Rachel Dolezal may or may not qualify for free money.

Regarding the numbers adding up,

The slavery reparations program expects to monetize its $10 million fund at a rate of $250,000 to $750,000 a year. …

Getting $750,000 on a 3% sales tax would require moving $25 million worth of legal marijuana a year. That’s a whole lot of drugs for a city of under 75,000 residents. Every person in Evanston would need to spend over $300 at drug dispensaries every year to fund racial reparations. …

The obvious revenue source for drug reparations for slavery would be the drug habits of Northwestern University students. But that’s also the group likeliest to cut costs by buying directly from drug dealers and bypassing Evanston’s racial pot taxes. …

Meanwhile, Evanston is still trying to figure out how to pay for its $321 million budget.

There is also the pension debt to deal with.

Maybe if Evanston’s City Council puffs the pot itself, reality will float away with the smoke, and everything will be okay.

Will.i.am Joins Hate Hoax List

Weaponizing victimhood is easy for the rich and famous. Pop singer “Will.i.am” of the Black Eyed Peas was so belligerent toward a Qantas stewardess that he found himself greeted by the police when he arrived in Sydney. He took revenge by denouncing the stewardess as a racist to his Twitter following — by name.

Entertainment reporter Peter Ford gasped,

“Some of your many millions of followers have already started abusing this woman. … Do you understand the intimidation and abuse you are subjecting this woman to with your post?”

The crybully responded that he is a victim who was intimidated by the police, so he will crush whomever he pleases. After all, he’s doing it for The People.

“I FELT discrimination…and I spoke for all the other people who are voiceless.”

The stewardess he named and then sicced his fan base on really is voiceless. But she isn’t a powerful victim like “Will.i.am,” so who cares about her?

For claiming racial oppression in order to hurt someone, Will.i.am earns a slot on the Hate Hoax List.

“Red Line” Deemed Offensive

Now that anything even remotely resembling racism against favored racial groups has already been eradicated, each deletion from the Newspeak Dictionary is more ludicrous than the last. On the heels of the word “Sooner” being declared racist in Oklahoma, we learn that the words “red” and “line” must never be placed next to each other, even in the context of mass transit, lest the words trigger persons of politically preferred pigmentation.

From Seattle:

Sound Transit will stop calling its north-south red metro line, the line that will eventually run between Everett and West Seattle, the “Red Line.”

Apparently, according to a press release, people complained to Sound Transit that it sounded like “redlining.” In the past, African-American families were kept out of certain neighborhoods in cities by being denied home loans or insurance. This type of segregation was known as redlining…

The Blue Line, Green Line, Purple Line, and Orange Line can carry on as usual, as they have not yet been designated as racist.

The Bitter Half Lives

No scary movies will raise the hair on the back of your neck this Halloween season like the Return of the Bitter Half. Moonbats want her to run for president. The quintessential angry black woman is still out there ginning up discord by playing the race card:

Michelle Obama shared painful memories of growing up in Chicago’s South Side and gave a reminder to white people in attendance at the Obama Foundation Summit on Tuesday: “Y’all were running from us, and you’re still running,” she said. …

The former first lady … said she noticed white families packing up their bags and heading for other parts of the city and state of Illinois to be away from black people.

Why would people go to the trouble of uprooting themselves and abandoning the community they had built? Just to be mean?

“As we moved in white folks moved out, because they were afraid of what our families represented,” she said.

What they were afraid of was the violent crime and societal decay that are on such conspicuous display on the South Side today.

[The Bitter Half] said she felt a sense of injustice as a child because she could see and feel that people were running from families like hers. She noted that she and her brother had friends of all races when they first moved in.

Evidently, the evil white racists befriended blacks at first, but then decided to move away out of sheer bigotry after seeing the beneficial effect they had on South Side neighborhoods.

[D]ifferences in skin color and hair texture divide countries and are “artificial things that don’t even touch on the values that people bring to life,” she said.

This absurd spin reflects the willful stupidity of political correctness. Does anyone really believe that white flight boils down to complexion and hair texture? The insistence on an idiot level of superficiality precludes any meaningful discussion of why the infusion of blacks into white neighborhoods forces the whites to leave, resulting in the utter ruin that has been inflicted on places like Chicago’s South Side and Detroit.

Black Jack-o’-Lanterns Denounced as Racist

It isn’t just decorations involving nooses. Jack-o’-lanterns are racist too, if they happen to be black. Bed Bath & Beyond has been caught in the act of selling these tools of racist oppression.

Via New York’s News 12 Westchester:

Bed Bath & Beyond has removed black jack-o’-lanterns from sale after a News 12 investigation that stemmed from complaints in Nyack about the product.

A Halloween display in front of a law firm was taken down in Nyack because the jack-o’-lanterns upset some community members. The jack-o’-lanterns are painted black with a white mouth.

Like Bed Bath & Beyond, the law firm Feerick, Nugent, MacCartney promptly withdrew the decorations to comply with crybully demands.

This is why the demands become ever more ludicrously unreasonable; they are always met with compliance, stoking the power trip that motivates social justice warriors.

Local NAACP Director Wilbur Aldridge says [there being black jack-o’-lanterns] shows an “extreme lack of sensitivity.”

Bed Bath & Beyond’s apology and immediate withdrawal of the product only guarantee that more racism will be found on its shelves.

Maybe next year Aldridge will call for a boycott because Bed Bath & Beyond discriminates by excluding black jack-o’-lanterns. If so, the company will issue another apology and scurry to fill every display window with them.

Mailman Won’t Deliver Because Halloween Decoration Is “Racist”

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds. However, offensive Halloween decorations are another matter. A mailman on Long Island refuses to do his job because he thinks a skeleton hanging from a noose is racist.

Via WCBS:

Richard Beatty has been decorating his Brentwood house for years with homemade Halloween decor, including makeshift gallows and a noose with a skeleton hanging from it.

Political correctness has progressed to the point that the noose is no longer acceptable.

“The postmaster himself came here and knocked on my door and said he was suspending my mail until I took this stuff down, and I said, do what you have to do because I’m not taking it down,” Beatty told CBS2’s Carolyn Gusoff.

Beatty, who resents the Post Office trying to dictate how he decorates his own property, confirms that there is no racial intent behind his hanging skeleton decoration. But his mailman is a person of politically privileged pigmentation and thinks otherwise.

A small percentage of individuals who have been hanged throughout history are black. But according to moonbat ideology, blacks and their alleged oppression are the central focus of the universe. Nooses are specifically about blacks, because everything is specifically about blacks; if you disagree, you are a racist.

This is why the sight of something that even vaguely resembles a noose can send college campuses into virtual lockdown mode (e.g., Louisiana State University, University of Michigan).

A postal service spokesperson says the carrier will “monitor conditions on a day-to-day basis.” They have the prerogative to deny home delivery “based on personal or physical safety.”

Repressive snowflakery has reached the point where harmless Halloween decorations can pass as threats to personal safety.
