Paid $11.25 Million for Being Late 47 Times

Racist oppression works great: show up late for work 47 times, get fired, collect $11.25 million. Thanks to the politicization of the judicial system, the looting spree known as “racial justice” has no limits:

High-end gym chain Equinox has been ordered to pay $11.25 million to one of their former trainers after her lawyers convinced a New York jury that her firing was racially motivated and not because she showed up for work late 47 times.

Robynn Europe lives near Coney Island. Eventually, she showed up for work at a gym on the Upper East Side. She does not deny frequently being late. Nonetheless:

The jury found that Europe, a former professional bodybuilder, had been subjected to a hostile work environment and unlawfully fired her on the basis of both her race and gender.

What do you expect? These people chose Eric Adams to be their mayor.

Europe claims that a subordinate made racist and sexist remarks. Also, a manager at Equinox allegedly obliged a customer’s request for a white trainer. This manager had already been fired.

Sorry, Caucasian readers. There is no way for you to attain the precious privilege of racial oppression for yourselves. The same activist lawyers, liberal judges, and urban Democrat juries that pick the winners pick you for the losers.

Actual Housing Discrimination Against Blacks Uncovered

If you are going to rent out your property to vacationers, do it in Jamaica. You won’t have to worry about getting canceled for racism if experience persuades you to adopt a policy like this one:

A Jamaican business owner who leases small cottages as short-term rentals to tourists has said she will be blocking “Black Americans” from renting from her in the future.

Like most everyone in Jamaica, she is black herself.

The owner said she rents to people from all over the world but has had difficulty with most of her Black American clientele. She categorized them as “Disrespectful, entitled, unappreciative” and said the reason they are is because they have been spoiled and given too much “free sh[**]” in America.

The corrosive effects of our handout society are evident from abroad. Yet through the use of ideological blinders, many Americans manage not to perceive it.

Alleged housing discrimination is among the pretexts supporting demands that blacks be given still more free sh**.

Jamaica had better hope it never falls under Democrat rule. Imagine how much it would have to inflate its currency to pay itself reparations.

Rather than the groveling apology we have come to expect, she responded to the inevitable social media backlash from the woke mob with this:

She said those complaining are the clientele she hopes to weed out, “My peace is more important than your frickin’ opinion.”

She announced on Instagram that she would rather “let goats and cows into my house than have you come in and disrespect it.” If only her attitude were more prevalent in the USA, goats and cows would not currently run the place.

Broadcaster Fired Over Newspeak Dictionary Transgression

It isn’t easy to find racism against blacks in a society where the ultimate faux pas is to fail to show sufficient reverence for them. Fortunately for the thought police, new crimes against political correctness can always be invented through modification of the Newspeak Dictionary and through punishment of accidental infractions. For example:

Oakland A’s broadcaster Glen Kuiper was let go by NBC Sports California after using a racial slur during a telecast while describing a trip to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.

Kuiper uttered the forbidden N-word. No, not that N-word. The other one: “Negro.” For reasons that have never been made clear, this word is no longer permissible, possibly not even while discussing the United Negro College Fund or the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. Kuiper compounded his infraction by mispronouncing the word.

“Following an internal review, the decision has been made for NBC Sports California to end its relationship with Glen Kuiper, effective immediately,” the network said in a statement Monday. “We thank Glen for his dedication to Bay Area baseball over the years.”

The thanks he gets is a shoeprint on the seat of his pants because a word came out of his mouth the wrong way.

Meanwhile, down the Left Coast, the thanks Christian fans get is to see perverts revered for ridiculing their faith. Offend people all you want in leftist realms like profession sports; just don’t accidently offend those who are “oppressed.”

Henry Louis Gates Helps Revise Newspeak Dictionary

Normally, revisions to the Newspeak Dictionary consist of deletions, as our ruling class constricts the realm of permissible thought by restricting our vocabulary. However, new words can be added when it serves liberal purposes — for example, by asserting Afrocentrism.

The New York Times effuses that new words include “bussin” and “boo”:

Those were two of the first 100 words that the Oxford University Press said it had prepared to include in the Oxford Dictionary of African American English, the hopeful result of the three-year research project announced last spring.

The researchers say they aim to publish a first batch of 1,000 definitions — some words and phrases will have more than one — by March 2025. But the more important goal of the project, which will be edited by Henry Louis Gates Jr., a scholar of African American history at Harvard University, is to underscore the significance of African American English and to create a resource for future research into Black speech, history and culture.

If the name rings a bell, Gates is the insufferable Harvard professor who contrived a racial incident by behaving like a spoilt child when the police temporarily prevented him from breaking into his own house, having no way of knowing he was the owner. Fellow race-baiter Barack Obama exploited the incident to stage the farcical Beer Summit, at which black members of our liberal ruling class held their noses and pretended to tolerate the sort of working class white guy who becomes a police officer. Historical note: Obama drank Bud Light, naturally.

Rap lyrics are cited as a source of new words social engineers want to inject into English. The dictionary may warrant an NC17 rating.

Many of the listed neologisms have a connection with slavery. The idea is to make an institution that ended going on 2 centuries ago seem currently relevant so it can be exploited for political purposes.

In addition to appearing in the Oxford Dictionary of African American English, the entries will also be added to the wider word bank of the Oxford English Dictionary, Gates said. …

More than just a collection of words, Gates said, the new dictionary will serve as a record of the ways Black people have molded the English language to protect themselves and also keep a morsel of autonomy in a world that would have them have none.

Everything that isn’t about LGBTism or the global warming hoax is about the sacred oppressedness of blacks — including even the dictionary.

Oppressed Person Demands $3 Million Apiece Reparations

If only we could lock in the $1.2 million per black person that California is proposing. The cost of “reparations” is rising faster than Biden’s inflation. A local resident addressing the Tampa City Council demands $3 million apiece:

“All this nonsense, homelessness and all this other garbage you all talk about. Police violence and all this stuff — don’t nobody care about that,” the man said.

The Democratic Party — which relies heavily on the support it receives from the overwhelming majority of blacks — may as well stop posturing on unimportant issues. Here’s what they do care about:

“We care about our reparations. And we have to put White people on notice that we want our reparations.”

What does it matter if their pathological greed collapses the entire economy? America is racist anyway; it deserves to perish.

“We want our reparations. $3 million per person. $3 million per person right here in this city. That’s the only [thing] Black people have to care about. All this other little nonsense… we do not care about.”

No need to prop up Biden’s corpse in 2024. Democrats can run this personification of their base:

Federal lawmakers are at work to meet these demands. Rep Cori Bush (D-MO) held a press conference Wednesday to announce her Reparations Now resolution. She says minimum payout should be $14 trillion.

If we debase the currency to the point of creating Zimbabwe-level inflation so as to turn every black in the country into Thurston Howell III, would they at least stop the disgraceful whining about how put upon we are supposed to pretend they are? No, they would not. As noted previously,

Blacks are so oppressed that a pejorative for them cannot be spoken even as a direct quotation because it is regarded as blasphemy. They are first hired and last fired, their race counting as primary qualification for any position, including pilots and the highest levels of government. Even mildly criticizing blacks as a group is likely to end your career. Many trillions of expropriated dollars have been funneled into welfare programs that disproportionately benefit blacks. So aggressively do the media and advertising establishments promote blacks that according to YouGov polling, people believe blacks constitute 41% of the population rather than the actual 12%. Police are less likely to use lethal force against black than white criminals, for reasons made obvious by the immolation of Derek Chauvin.

If that counts as “oppression,” a few $million apiece in free money will count as still more oppression. Being oppressed is how they get their way. Rewarding them for it will not make them stop.

Oppression is a process by which people sacrifice any conceivable claim to self-respect but in return are granted power by the Democratic Party, which is doing to the USA exactly what Black Lives Matter mobs did to the stores they looted and destroyed.

Reparations Push Approaches Maximum Insanity

Blacks are so oppressed that a pejorative for them cannot be spoken even as a direct quotation because it is regarded as blasphemy. They are first hired and last fired, their race counting as primary qualification for any position, including pilots and the highest levels of government. Even mildly criticizing blacks as a group is likely to end your career. Many trillions of expropriated dollars have been funneled into welfare programs that disproportionately benefit blacks. So aggressively do the media and advertising establishments promote blacks that according to YouGov polling, people believe blacks constitute 41% of the population rather than the actual 12%. Police are less likely to use lethal force against black than white criminals, for reasons made obvious by the immolation of Derek Chauvin.

The only way to make amends for all this oppression is with direct cash payments — i.e., “reparations”:

California’s reparations task force has approved recommendations which could give black residents $1.2million each as compensation for slavery and discrimination.

Slavery was abolished in the United States in 1865, generations before anyone living today was born. It was never legal in California.

Regarding discrimination, it works heavily in favor of blacks, not against them. When they aren’t pretending to be Indians, racial imposters pretend to be black, so they can benefit from this discrimination. Not even the palest octoroon pretends not to be black.

Surely even the most shameless race grifters will be satisfied with this demented looting spree, right? Wrong:

[R]esidents who attended the official meeting in Oakland hit out at the estimated costs of reparations, which some believe it is ‘nowhere near enough,’ demanding $200million direct cash payments to individuals instead.

As for where the money would come from, white people have plenty of money. They have been rendered defenseless by liberalism, so now is the time to take it.

Kamilah Moore, a reparatory justice scholar and an attorney, chaired the task force and previously stated she plans to be as ‘radical as possible’ when it comes to deciding who will receive reparations and how much.

Nearly 2 million Californians lay claim to black privilege. Expect that number to rise sharply.

Democrats know that the concept of reparations stokes racial animosity on both sides and creates it where there was none, and that implementation would lead to economic ruin. Yet they press onward — and not only in California:

A Denver councilwoman caused a stir when she declared that white-owned businesses should pay reparations.

Candi CdeBaca, a 37-year-old Democratic Socialist who is facing a run-off election in June, told a business forum Thursday that white-owned businesses should pay an additional race-based tax, which would be given in turn as reparations to minority-owned businesses.

As with most leftist lunacy, New York is not far behind on reparations. Neither is the once great city at the bottom of the Democrat Death Spiral, Detroit:

Last year, 80% of Detroit voters in a 78% black city cast their ballots in support of a reparations commission.

Slavery was banned in Michigan in 1787. Not that it matters.

Chairwoman Lauren Hood of the Detroit City Planning Commission said that she didn’t know who the 20% were, but assumed it was maybe newcomers to the city or non-black residents.

“Detroit is the blackest big city in the nation. Eight out of every 10 people here are due some sort of reparation,” Chairwoman Hood argued.

Unless blacks are to pay themselves to be oppressed, this will come at a hefty price to the few remaining Caucasians who have not escaped Detroit.

When California and other liberal jurisdictions go bankrupt paying people outlandish fortunes for being black, the rest of the country will be forced to bail them out — unless Democrats take the looting spree national. Then it could be financed the way Biden pays for his version of the Green New Deal — through inflation. Refer to Zimbabwe and the Weimar Republic to see how that works.

As the reparations issue demonstrates, moonbats are unreasonable and irresponsible. The USA will collapse into a failed state if they are not pried loose from power.

Buttigieg: Racist Roads Kill Minorities

Turns out our conspicuously incompetent transportation secretary has another qualification besides being deafeningly homosexual. Pete Buttigieg can push moonbattery to extremes of pernicious foolishness that only the utterly shameless can achieve, as he proved by telling professional race baiter Al Sharpton that roads designed by racist Caucasians kill minorities:

“We have a crisis when it comes to roadway fatalities in America. We lose about 40,000 people every year. It’s a level that is comparable to gun violence. And we see a lot of racial disparities. Black and Brown Americans, tribal citizens and rural residents are much more likely to lose their lives whether it’s in a car or as a pedestrian being hit by a car,” Buttigieg said.

By “gun violence,” he largely means suicide, the rate of which unsurprisingly rose when Democrats took power in 2021.

He continued, “There are a lot of reasons related to discrimination and related to even the ways that roads are designed and built, who has access to a safe street design that has crosswalks and good lighting, who doesn’t have that access that can drive disparities, and we have a responsibility to act on that.”

With geniuses like Buttigieg in charge, we can design roads so that the only people who get killed in traffic accidents are those who deserve it, namely whites. He’ll get right on it, so long as he isn’t too busy taking extended paternity leave with his child-grooming “husband.”

We may one day discover life on other planets, but it is safe to say we will never discover a lifeform lower than Pete Buttigieg, because that would be inconceivable.

Race Scholar Eric Stewart Forced Out of FSU

Some follow-up on Eric Stewart, who presumably exploited the prevailing Affirmative Action mentality to secure a position as Associate Professor at Florida State University, which he in turn exploited to publish fake data to prop up black oppression hogwash. So crude was the fakery that educrats were forced to show him the door:

A Florida State University criminology professor abruptly left his $190,000-a-year position following allegations that he fudged data on racism studies during his 16-year tenure.

You don’t leave a cushy taxpayer-subsidized job like that without someone’s shoeprint on the seat of your pants.

Stewart has had six studies retracted. The first one to draw attention used altered data to support his contention that the public demanded longer sentences for Criminals of Color as black and Hispanic populations grew.

True to type, Steward claimed that he was being “lynched” when repeated complaints about his scholarly fakery compelled educrats to grudgingly look into it.

He may be out $190,000 per year to generate propaganda on behalf of a poisonous ideology, but at least the apparent fabrication of fake racial animosity earns him a place on the Hate Hoax List.

2023’s Answer to Rosa Parks Gets Punched at Target

Stop the presses — a black person has been oppressed:

The ugly incident happened in October at the [Target] megastore in Blue Ash, Ohio, and began when Karen Ivery asked a cashier for their manager regarding the bill and reparations, according to the police report reviewed by The Post.

The suits at obnoxiously woke Target probably thought the crocodile would eat them last. As usual with those who pander to leftism, they were wrong.

When speaking with the manager, the customer first asked for reparations and grew angry as she walked “aggressively” toward the manager, according to the report.

Lunacy spawned in the leftist fever swamps of California and New York soon finds its way to places like Blue Ash, an inner suburb of Cincinnati.

“Ivery kept berating her about reparations and her privileged life,” the report alleges as the patron kept walking toward the manager.

Entitlement is not an easy beast to get back in its cage.

Security officer Zach Cotter tried to get Ivery to calm down and leave…

But she allegedly began screaming at Cotter and followed him to his office.

When he tried to shut the door, Ivery allegedly forced her way in and Cotter threw a punch, according to the report.

The respective races add up to oppression — and yet:

After reviewing footage of the incident, authorities wrote that they determined Ivery was the “aggressor” and she was placed under arrest.

Black Lives Matter tried to warn us that police are racist. You can see why they must be defunded and abolished.

“Ivery was confrontational with officers on the scene and didn’t want to explain her actions,” the report states.

Grunts Ivery:

“This is my Rosa Parks moment.”

We have come a long way since Rosa Parks.

Ivery was charged with disorderly conduct. We’ll see if that counts for or against her when she brings her lawsuit demanding $millions.

Professor Eric Stewart Appears to Be Race Fraud

Not all of the racial fraud in academia relates to phonies claiming privilege by pretending not to be white. Florida State University Associate Professor and 2005 W.E.B. Du Bois Fellow Eric Stewart looks black enough. Yet he appears to be a race fraud:

The Florida Standard reports that Eric Stewart, a fellow of the American Society of Criminology, has had six studies retracted in recent years, after being accused of falsifying data first in 2019 by a professor named Justin Pickett from the University of Albany.

Stewart’s focus has been on racial data and research. That’s where the grant money is.

Pickett says he asked that a study he was involved with be retracted because the data was altered to the point of mathematical impossibility.

The study reported that as populations of black and Hispanic Americans grew, the public desire for discriminatory sentences also grew. However, Pickett later noticed that the sample size of the study somehow grew from 500 to over 1,000 and the number of counties polled dropped from 326 to 91.

Sometimes you have to cook the numbers so they come out politically correctly. That’s how we know math is racist.

Stewart responded by squealing that Pickett “essentially lynched me.”

Pickett told the Florida Standard that there is a “huge monetary incentive to falsify data and there’s no accountability. If you do this, the probability you’ll get caught is so, so low.”

Even so, academics have not been able to fabricate a factual framework for Critical Race Theory to rest upon that passes the laugh test. But at least they are trying. That proves they are good people, not lynchers like Pickett.

Missing Persons Alert for Black Women and Children Only

As on Orwell’s animal farm, everyone is equal under moonbat rule, but some are more equal than others. Blacks are so equal that a California bill proposes an Ebony Alert system to report missing black women and children so they can be given priority over less favored identity groups:

In a release on the race-based crime bill, state senator Steven Bradford said that the bill would “address the often ignored or lack of attention given to Black children and young Black women that are missing in California.”

You know, like the White House needed to promote a Transgender Day of Visibility 4 days after the Covenant School Massacre because of the lack of visibility given to transsexuals.

The media will be encouraged to prioritize Ebony Alerts, missing women and children of other racial groups being less newsworthy.

Despite all the favoritism, blacks are systematically oppressed, according to the same people who tell us that men can be women. That is the justification for California preparing to give blacks $800 BILLION of other people’s money.

It pays to be extra equal, or as liberals put it, oppressed.

Bradford distributes privilege to his fellow oppressed persons.

California Reparations Estimated to Cost $800 Billion

California has remained at the cutting edge of moonbattery by proclaiming that blacks should be handed massive cash payouts in honor of their position of privilege high in the cultural Marxist caste system. Estimated bill: $800 billion.

The $800 billion is more than 2.5 times California’s $300 billion annual budget and does not include a recommended $1 million per older Black resident for health disparities that have shortened their average life span. Nor does the figure count compensating people for property unjustly taken by the government or devaluing Black businesses, two other harms the task force says the state perpetuated.

To judge by liberal rhetoric, the main harm is slavery. But slavery was never legal in California. Nor was it legal anywhere in the USA during the lifetime of anyone alive today.

Handing out massive quantities of other people’s money is not the full extent of the nuttiness California kooks have planned in the name of racial preference:

Other proposals include paying incarcerated inmates market value for their labor, establishing free wellness centers and planting more trees in Black communities, banning cash bail, and adopting a K-12 Black studies curriculum.

Note that liberals conflate blacks with criminals.

The $800 billion estimate in California includes $246 billion to compensate eligible Black Californians whose neighborhoods were subjected to aggressive policing and prosecution in the “war on drugs” from 1970 to 2020.

Blacks are to be showered with money to compensate them for having been provided police protection.

To be a liberal is never to ask, “But how are we going to pay for this?” Someone else always pays.

California doesn’t have the cash to finance this looting spree. But lunacy hatched in California is eventually imposed at the federal level. The federal government doesn’t have the cash either. But it can print it.

If you think inflation is bad now, wait until Democrats have won another round of elections. We will be burning piles of hundred-dollar bills to keep warm.
