Macy’s Commits Racism

Despite its servile pandering to Black Lives Matter, Macy’s may be in for more looting. It has committed a racist thought crime:

Macy’s is under fire after calling the Zeta Phi Beta Centennial Steppers a “diverse dance group” in a Thanksgiving Day tweet.

The Steppers performed in this year’s scarcely attended one-block-long Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. It was founded at nearly all-black Howard University.

“What’s that sound, you ask? Why it’s the diverse dance group, Zeta Phi Beta Steppers!” Macy’s exclaimed in a now-deleted tweet.

MSNBC thought cop Joy Reid ignited the Twitter mob by offendedly shrieking that the Steppers are not a dance group. Others quickly piled on:

“I’m tired of businesses using Black entities (including Historically Black Sororities and Fraternities) as a means to look more ‘diverse’ and accepting,” added @_AwesomeKid. “It’s clear how performative this attempt was, due to your lack of research for your own parade performers.”

Don’t include blacks, you are racist. Include them, you are still racist. That’s the genius of Cultural Marxism.

“Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. ain’t exist for 100 years just for Macy’s to call them a “diverse dance group,” said @TevonBlair.

We’ve come a long way since 2007, when you had to say something like “nappy-headed hos” to get yourself canceled.

Scurrying to comply with the command that it not call the Steppers a “diverse dance group,” Macy’s replaced the original tweet with this:

Watermelons Are Now Inherently Racist

Under Cultural Marxism, a white guy like Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy cannot win. Heads, he’s a racist; tails, he’s a racist. It is an unforgivably racist faux pas to associate watermelons with blacks. However, it is also racist not to associate watermelons with blacks.

Via 'Nox & Friends:

[McCarthy] brought in a watermelon and smashed it with a sledgehammer to simulate what he wanted his defense to do when the Vikings had the ball in hand, and it worked.

His players loved it… all of his players, but the media heard about it and suddenly McCarthy is getting hit with the racist tag.

On behalf of the ultra-woke sports media, crybully thought cop Shannon Sharpe bellows that smashing watermelons “will not be tolerated”:

Per Shannon Sharpe’s decree, when we look at a watermelon, we must not see a watermelon. We must see only black people and their sacred oppression.

Watermelons are now inherently racist. Enjoy them while they are still legal.

George Floyd Exhibit at Holocaust Center

To succumb to moonbattery is to lose all sense of perspective. To a moonbat, a violent career criminal dying of a fentanyl overdose while resisting arrest is comparable to murdering 6 million innocents for being Jewish. Seriously, they are that deranged:

A new exhibit at the Holocaust Memorial Resource & Education Center in Maitland [Florida] features powerful and inspiring photos taken in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

No evidence has been presented that race was a factor in Floyd’s death. Yet it was exploited as a pretext for race riots that raged throughout the country, with the enthusiastic encouragement of the liberal media establishment and the tacit consent of local Democrat officials. That’s why the demise of George Floyd is on a par with the Final Solution.

This not only absurdly inflates the significance of George Floyd, but trivializes the Holocaust. When everything is a horrific tragedy, nothing is.

Woke White Guilt Ads

Watch Michael Knowles attempt to guess what product is being advertised, not realizing that advertising has been absorbed by moonbattery and is no longer about products, but only about moonbattery:

If you hate yourself for being Caucasian, buy stuff from Procter & Gamble.

UW-Madison to Remove Racist Chamberlin Rock

Even after they have removed all the statues of American giants from times past, the purge will continue. Social justice warriors will turn their wrath upon other objects — like the rock that is to be removed from the campus of University of Wisconsin–Madison because 100 years ago it was referred to by a racist name:

UW-Madison is moving forward on a plan to remove a boulder from Observatory Hill after calls from students of color who see the rock as a painful reminder of the history of racism on campus.

The 70-ton boulder is officially known as Chamberlin Rock in honor of Thomas Crowder Chamberlin, a geologist and former university president. But the rock was referred to at least once after it was dug out of the hill as a “niggerhead,” a commonly used expression in the 1920s to describe any large dark rock.

All dark rocks must be destroyed, or people might forget who is charge nowadays.

The Wisconsin Black Student Union called for the rock’s removal over the summer. President Nalah McWhorter said the rock is a symbol of the daily injustices that students of color face on a predominantly white campus.

Black militants bark “jump” and everyone else whimpers, “How high?” Yet we are required to believe that they are the piteous victims of racial injustice. Anyone who fails to comply with this belief is likely to get canceled like Chamberlin Rock.

Options under consideration for dealing with the rock include breaking it up and disposing of it, despite its “rich geological history.” The rock was carried by glaciers from far away. Estimates for the cost of removal range up to $75,000.

After the rock is removed, the Black Student Union’s focus will shift to generating ideas for how students of color can reclaim the space, such as installing a piece of art, McWhorter said.

A giant Black Power fist statue would be appropriate.

But wait… canceling the racist rock may not be that easy:

UW-Madison needs to secure approval from the Wisconsin Historical Society before removal begins because the rock is located near an effigy mound.

The first step requires UW-Madison to submit a request to disturb a catalogued burial site. All Native Tribes of Wisconsin are notified during the process, which can take 60 to 90 days and includes a 30-day comment period.

What if the native tribes decide that destroying the rock would be racist?

Open Thread

The truth is, the liberal policies of the elite class have done little to improve the lot of those who depend so much on them. In America's black communities, where the goodies have been flowing for decades, rather than seeing improvements in terms of upward mobility, we are seeing deteriorating family structure, increases in violent crimes, growing poverty, and growing dependence. Even with such a blatant record of failure, there is slavish devotion to the elite class who continue to promise more goodies in exchange for votes. - Benjamin Carson

Slave Owner Heritage of Kamala Harris

Kamala Harris presents herself as a grown-up little black girl whose oppression was slightly alleviated by forced busing:

She supports race-based coercive wealth redistribution, justified by America’s “dark history”:

Maybe she should offer to pay reparations herself, given her slave-owner ancestry:

“My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (née Christiana Brown), descendant of Hamilton Brown, who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of Brown’s Town,” wrote Donald J. Harris in a 2018 essay for Jamaica Global.

Harris is an economist, scholar, and professor of economics, emeritus at Stanford University, according to his Stanford bio.

Her father doesn’t sound all that oppressed, despite Harris having been selected for her identity politics historicness.

Her ancestor Hamilton Brown was born in Ireland. Over the years, he owned over 1,100 slaves.

After the African slave trade was shut down by the U.K. parliament, Brown began to bring Irish immigrants to Jamaica. The Irish government stopped it because Brown was turning the Irish immigrants into slaves.

This isn’t really about race, and it isn’t about our ancestors either. It is about power and money. That’s all Democrats like Harris are in this for. The rest is what Joe Biden might call “malarkey.”

Stevie Wonder Promises Biden Will Redistribute Wealth by Race

Stevie Wonder is an iconic pop star. Chances are high that he lives much better than you do. However, assuming you pay taxes, he sees it as the government’s job to confiscate from you to give to him, to compensate him for being oppressed. Wonder says Joe Biden will bring this about.

Via Breitbart:

Wonder, whose estimated net worth exceeds $100 million, called for reparations for black Americans while performing at a Joe Biden rally in Detroit on Saturday. …

At one point during the rally, the singer voiced his demand for reparations. “I know Joe Biden will do it. Give us reparations! For the work that we’ve all done for the last 400 years — unpaid,” the pop star said.

Unpaid, says the zillionaire.

Stevie Wonder is welcome to the money he earned. But he wants to take by force money he did not earn. He is a looter. No looter will ever be satisfied, no matter how much he has stolen.

As noted earlier, the Marxism in store for us if the Democrats win will be race-based. Add racial animus to the ideology that killed 100 million people last century and the outcome won’t be pretty.

Privilege Versus Public Decency on Delta Flight

Even among the privileged in the age of Black Lives Matter, standards of decency can be maintained. But it isn’t easy:

A passenger was kicked off a Delta flight for wearing a hat that was deemed “inappropriate” by the airline.

The unnamed woman was wearing a baseball cap with the word “f***” emblazoned on it when she boarded the aircraft, before being asked to remove it by cabin crew.

All she had to do was agree not to put the obscene hat back on her head once the plane was in the air. She was too special to do this.

Congratulations, Black Lives Matter. You finally found evidence that blacks are oppressed:

Now Delta is pleading with people not think they are racist, and the captain is taking heat for not having a mask on and for his “condescending tone” toward a passenger who was behaving like a spoilt child.

Did Racial Deference Kill 1-Year-Old?

To avoid getting pilloried by the media, fired, and possibly thrown in prison, police officers have learned to show extraordinary deference to black guys. The consequences might be tragic, as when Sidney Deal locked his 1-year-old daughter in a hot car.

The Blaze reports:

Deal called the police Monday after he locked his keys inside his vehicle at his Las Vegas-area home.

His keys weren’t the only thing of importance locked up inside — his 1-year-old daughter was, too.

When police arrived on the scene, the officers offered to break the window or to call a locksmith or tow truck.

Deal declined and said that he was going to call his brother, instead.

He didn’t want to pay for a new window or even a tow truck. As everyone stood around dithering, the baby died, probably from the heat.

In an earlier time, the police would have pushed him out of the way, smashed the window immediately, and rescued the baby. But now that would be called racist oppression and set off riots. Police have been conditioned to adopt a more passive attitude.

Current State of Political Debate

Thanks to the liberal establishment’s appalling success at passing off Black Lives Matter as the good guys, you don’t win arguments in this country by making an intelligent point. You win with vandalism, violence, and intimidation. Or at least, that’s the strategy the Left has openly embraced. We’ll see if the country has rotted to the point that it pays off in the long run. November will provide an indication.

For now, this is what political disputation boils down to in the erstwhile Land of the Free (sorry about the language):

Thankfully, the patriot offering the merchandise escaped physical injury. But the point was made that next time she might not be as lucky.

Information Liberation dials up the sarcasm:

As BLM and the media have informed us, Black folks are terrified that White people and especially White cops will shoot them at any moment for the slightest misstep.

As videos like these and hundreds of others make clear, they have to live their lives in constant fear because they can be shot at any second just for buying skittles or going for a jog.

Needless to say, BLM foot soldiers do not feel the least bit threatened by the police. That’s why they behave like savages. But it doesn’t matter that their ideology is patently fake, so long as they can achieve political power by clubbing people over the head with it, with the eager assistance of the liberal elite.

White Privilege and Nonwhite Privilege

When liberal elitists like Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo denounce poor and working-class whites for having “white privilege” …

… they reinforce something that actually exists, namely nonwhite privilege.

Nonwhite privilege manifests itself mainly as an imperious attitude that comes from being designated by the ruling class as “oppressed” and therefore more equal than the other animals on the farm. Its application in daily life looks something like this:

A more effective means of stoking racial animosity than promoting nonwhite privilege would be hard to imagine. The media and education establishments do this so methodically that it must be part of a conscious political strategy.

American Psychological Association Goes Full Moonbat on Race

As Robert Conquest observed, “Any organization not explicitly right-wing sooner or later becomes left-wing.” Then it becomes ever more left-wing, until it has been subverted to the point of absurdity. The American Psychological Association is a case in point.

“First, do no harm” has been discarded. Rather than attempt to cure diseases, the APA deliberately spreads a disease that has been tearing our country apart, reducing neighborhoods to ruin, and terrorizing normal citizens — namely, Black Lives Matter moonbattery:

Police brutality may be what sparked a wave of protests across the United States and beyond, but the “racism pandemic”—a term used by APA President Sandra Shullman, PhD, for the ongoing harm caused by racism—runs far deeper. Today’s inequities, psychologists say, are deeply rooted in our past, and the status quo is no longer acceptable. “Every institution in America is born from the blood of white supremacist ideology and capitalism—and that’s the disease,” says Theopia Jackson, PhD, president of the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi).

Note that capitalism is thrown in with “white supremacist ideology” (previously known as “American individualism”). Pushing Marxism under cover of Afrocentric crybullying is classic Black Lives Matter.

APA offers a series of grants and fellowships for psychologists from ethnic- and racial-minority groups and convenes the Council of National Psychology Associations for the Advancement of Ethnic Minority Interests, which promotes career development for psychologists of color and addresses other equity issues.

If APA apparatchiks really want to understand racism in this country, they should ask themselves why an Association of White Psychologists would be unthinkable, and why no one would be permitted to explicitly promote the careers of Caucasians.

Speaking of actual racism:

“It’s important for APA to be an example of how an organization can look at itself internally,” said organizational psychologist Catherine Learmonth, PsyD…

That should involve discussions among members about white privilege and white fragility…

Rather than heal neurosis, the APA nurtures it, by encouraging people to despise themselves for their race if they are white, and to pity themselves as helpless victims if they aren’t.

This isn’t the first time the organization has abetted an illness it should be trying to cure:

The APA has also been vocal in recent months on transgender issues, recommending puberty-blocking hormones for children with gender dysphoria in order to “buy younger children time to explore their gender identities” and prescribing surgery or hormones to masculinize or feminize the bodies of adolescents who have decided they identify as transgender.

What moonbattery infiltrates, it renders not merely useless but noxious.

Jessica Krug, Racial Impostor

If anything gives the lie to the liberal oppression narrative even more than mass Third World immigration to the USA, it is racial impostors. Democrats and their media mouthpieces weep that minorities — especially blacks — are oppressed. Yet nonwhites want to live here, and whites pretend to be nonwhite. This is because “oppressed” is Orwellian for “privileged.” The privilege can be exploited to build a career, as Rachel Dolezal demonstrated by becoming a NAACP chapter president and university instructor of Africana studies. Jessica Krug joins her in the Hall of Shame:

Despite publicly living as a black woman for years, George Washington University associate professor Jessica Krug admitted Thursday that she is actually a “culture leech” — who is white.

Krug took to Medium to confess her scam.

“To an escalating degree over my adult life, I have eschewed my lived experience as a white Jewish child in suburban Kansas City under various assumed identities within a Blackness that I had no right to claim: first North African Blackness, then US rooted Blackness, then Caribbean rooted Bronx Blackness,” she says. “I have built my life on a violent anti-Black lie, and I have lied in every breath I have taken.”

She has renounced her fraud, but she still needs to disavow her fraudulent leftist ideology, to judge by her misuse of the word “violent.”

Krug pronounces upon herself the harshest possible sentence in the world of tolerant liberals:

“You should absolutely cancel me, and I absolutely cancel myself.”

Why drop the deception now, at the height of Black Lives Matter mania?

A former friend of Krug’s and another professor charged that Krug only came forward because she had been found out and had started being confronted by others in her field.

At least she came clean when exposed. Evidently Caucasian Black Lives Matter agitator Shaun King remains in denial. So does Elizabeth Warren, who climbed high on the career ladder by pretending to be nonwhite, then claimed that the DNA test proving her to be as white as she looks actually qualifies her as an Indian.

Krug, who has an apartment in Harlem, allegedly once went on a profanity-laden tirade at a City Council hearing, in which she spoke in a street accent and blasted New Yorkers who talked about the police in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

Krug isn’t much phonier than anyone else who has climbed atop Floyd’s fentanyl-saturated corpse to denounce society.
