Are you ‘woke’? Accept your ‘white privilege’ guilt? Nope? Oh dear.

Are you ‘woke’?  Do you accept your racism and  ‘white privilege’ guilt? Nope…?

 Floyd George, a black unarmed man,  was killed May 25  in a large city, Minneapolis,which is   run by Democrat politics.

He  was killed   by a white cop with a long history of problem behaviors.  The national news has been  full of  riots, looting and demonstrations.

Black  men,  6% of the U.S. population, commit roughly 50% of violent crimes — murders and robberies. It’s blacks who  kill and rob other blacks in overwhelming numbers.

Black Lives Matters Inc.  (BLM)  has been much in the national news. BLM has held various demonstrations. What does BLM say about blacks killing fellow blacks, largely in their own neighborhoods?   Nothing.

The corporate organization  Black Lives Matter  (BLM) has no message opposing killings by blacks of other blacks.   BLM focuses on police killings of blacks and support de-funding the police as their ‘solution’.  What will happen to black neighborhoods with even fewer people wearing blue are  keeping the peace?  More violence.   Just recently, New York City removed 500 plain clothes police from street duty  and violent crime in the City  has skyrocketed.

So what to make of all this killing?  Blacks kill other blacks in huge numbers.   Unarmed blacks and whites get killed by  the police. 

So —  is it ‘whitey’ that’s the real problem?   Is racism — your racism–or  ‘structural racism’ — is  that’s  the problem?   Are you ‘woke’?  Do you accept your  supposed  ‘white privilege’ guilt?

Maybe you’re a bit  curious and willing to  learn  more about ‘white privilege’ and ‘structural racism’?

Well,  there’s workshops out there that seek to  ‘enlighten’  you.

I attended The Call of the Moment: an  Anti-Racism Workshop offered  via ZOOM by Dr. Lewis.  About 1300 attended.  Dr. Lewis plans more workshops in the future.

  Two books by Dr. Lewis are listed as  available on Amazon. One of her books  is The Power of Stories.  

 

Dr. Jacqui Lewis,  is Senior Minister of Middle Collegiate Church located in New York City.   She was ordained in the Presbyterian Church and has served in a senior  position  with Middle Collegiate  for about 15 years.  

Published on VOX on May 29,2020 is the following info:

About Dr. Lewis, here’s what I found:

 Dr. Lewis writes:  “And it’s not enough to condemn this particular presidential abuse without also naming how the president  [Trump] routinely kills and maims those on the margins through policy.

Tens of thousands of people are killed each year due to ridiculously lax gun legislation he [Trump]  defends. Child hunger is soaring because of our woefully anemic safety net and federal cruelty. Thousands have been kidnapped at our border at his [Trump’s]  command.

And more than 16,000 people have already died in my city [New York]  because the president failed to prepare for the coronavirus and did not prioritize giving New York the aid we needed.  [Oh really?  Factual problem here.]   

Dr. Lewis continues:  “So, while I’m horrified by the president’s callousness in demanding houses of worship be allowed to open, I cannot say I’m surprised. And I am not surprised by how many white Americans continue to support him — it is part of our country’s foundational white supremacy. Our social contract has always made its peace with brutality and death to secure the power of whiteness…..”   

Given the strong  bias against  President Trump that Dr. Lewis clearly expresses,  how ‘loose  with the facts’ might  Dr. Lewis be when she presents in an anti-racial  workshop?  More about the Workshop   will be discussed in a separate post.  

   As. Dr. Lewis lays a huge number of societal problems at one person’s door — President  Trump’s door —   how likely is she to consider that  behavior  on the part of blacks  is  part of the problem as well as part of the solution?    

Per the VOX post,  Dr. Lewis blames Trump for killing twelve  thousand people  in New York City (where she lives and works).  The facts do not support her allegations.

It is well publicized that the Mayor of New York moved COVID-19 persons into nursing homes and about 4,500 nursing home patients died.  That is what the Mayor  of New York City  did.   That’s the city where Dr. Lewis lives and works.     It is well known that Trump sent a hospital ship to New York  to help out and also it is well known that Trump  sent heaps of ventilators that were not needed but  New York City received  them. There are no indications that Trump killed  people in New York.

Dr. Lewis, as published by Vox, states ‘facts’ about Trump that are clearly erroneous for which there is no support.  

Take Away:  The workshop by Dr. Lewis on  anti-racism  makes no mention of the brutal  violence that   male Afro-Americans living in large Democrat controlled cities  inflict on other individuals  of their color, ethnicity and culture both on physical bodies  and on black  homes, businesses  and neighborhoods. Black  violent behaviors  harming other blacks was not touched on in the workshop.

Dr. Lewis does talk about ‘holding  environments’, that we find our identify in various contexts (home, school, church).  She talks about   that the first ‘holding environment’  — the womb. When bullets are flying near by that first ‘holding environment’ is at risk.   

When black males (6% of the population) commit 50% of murders against their neighbors who are black what’s the effect on the  ‘holding environments’ aka wombs of pregnant black women? Check the facts:   Floyd George  put a pistol to the stomach of a pregnant woman after pushing his way into her home.    Dr. Lewis writes that there were bullets  flying nearby when she was 8, living in Chicago, and  it was learned that Martin Luther King had been  assassinated.

I think it  matters  that Afro-Americans are killing, maiming children  and aborting black babies  in huge numbers.  As stated above,  50% of all murders and robberies are committed by  black men killing and robbing other blacks who are their neighbors.

In response to what I wrote about blacks killing blacks  one person, an episcopal  church leader  wrote:  “Those statistics  point to the effects of years of ‘systemic racism’ that have left black people with little to no opportunity and isolated them in ghettos where violence prevails.” 

A black author  in the WSJ Jason Riley says differently.  He writes  that riots caused businesses to leave inner cities which resulted in social pathologies.   Here are Riley’s  words:

“A common assumption among liberals is that the movement of inner-city jobs to the suburbs in the late 1960s is what led to the higher rates of crime, violence and other social pathologies associated with ghetto life. But this gets the order wrong. The business flight took place after the rioting, not before. Will history repeat itself?”

Someone,  a christian and  member of  an  episcopal church,  wrote on Facebook that a video by Candice Owen   ‘made him feel sick’.  He asked people to comment and  received  50-60 comments in response.

Some  said Candice Owens and Jason Riley, both black conservatives, are  ‘shills’ Three  disagreed including myself. 

  Aren’t you just a little more ‘woke’ now ?  the person writing on his Facebook page  asked of  one dissenter. “I reject most of what ‘woke’ stands for” that person  responded. Oh dear, not everybody buys into getting  ‘woked’.

Another dissenter commented   that  for many years  most major U.S. cities are run by black politicians …. ”  My question:     do these  black politicians  care about the blacks voters  that  put them in office? Why have these black politicians produced so little helpful  to blacks?

My view:  Why blame the huge numbers of blacks killing and robbing   their  black neighbors  on  something called    ‘structural racism’ when it can just as easily be  described as    Democrat Party  politics as usual?  Why?  Remember, 2020  is an election year and the Democrats prime goal is to remove Trump from office.

Churches are a main civic organization.  So what has been the response of  churches to Black Lives Matters and ‘structural racism’?

The Episcopal Church has been in the news lately.   Remember the picture of Trump standing in front of the church across from the White House which had been torched the night before?  Trump had a bible – that picture.

Rev. Curry head of the episcopal church in Washington D.C.  says. “I really do believe that we’ve got to face the pain of our past and then work together to create new ways to create a new future.”. 

I’ve found no discussion by Rev. Curry or  other episcopal leaders  as to the role blacks  specifically play in the violence inflicted by blacks on their black neighbors. Nothing specific as to what blacks can and need to do. The episcopal stance appears to be ‘we stand against racism and structural racism…’   

So  what are some of the factors  why  black men commit  50% of all murders? 

Listen to voices who published Letters in  WSJ  June 13-14, 2020:   These letters cite Prof. Orlando Patterson’s essay “The Long Reach of Racism in the U.S.” (Review, June 6).  One voice names the failure of black office holders.  The number of black children born without a father in the home and  black reliance on government programs instead of finding meaningful work is listed as another factor by another voice.

My views:  It’s complicated and there’s many   factors why black men commit 50% of all U.S.  violent crimes.  Something not talked about is the role of feminism and easy access to abortions.     Feminism and ‘my body is my own to do as I please‘ comes to mind.    Due to  Planned Parenthood,  there’s  easy availability of abortion as a primary birth control method. In New York City  more black babies are aborted than born.   How do those young black almost-a-father and never-had-a-choice black men feel?  Ask them.

Black fathers don’t appear to matter.   What about self esteem issues  and attaching value for who you are.   Look at the Black Lives Matter website and you will find no role, no value, no interest in  black fathers, black sons or black families with a mother and father as a married entity. Marriage and family and the place of the black man as father are not valued   by  Black Lives Matters.  Take a look at their web site.

Self esteem comes from learning skills that are age grounded.    Riding a bike at 4. Learning to read and later learning how to reason and think logically by early teens. These contribute to the development of self esteem.  Learning a skill that can result in a wage is another  crucial  step for young  people.  The  union controlled  public schools produce poorly educated persons of all colors including young black men.

Effect of the unions.   In the 1930’s thousands of young blacks went north to get jobs. The blacks had carpentry and other skills and got jobs.   Then the Davis Bacon  Act was passed which requires that ‘prevailing wages’ be paid. The act was passed to limit blacks from getting jobs. Time to change the law?

Recent events:   Now we learn  that a bad, bad  white cop with 18 disciplinary actions killed a black man  he knew (they were bouncers together) while several other cops stood by and did nothing.  Those other cops were complicit and contributed to the death of that black.    For years, that bad cop was protected by the police unions.

Yes — it’s  time to rein in the power  police unions. And  time to rein in the  school unions that produce  poorly educated persons of all colors.

Unions for public employees.  That is a major culprit. The police unions protect the bad cops.  The school unions protect the bad teachers.  Together as a result we get poorly educated young persons of all colors.  And there are all sorts of factors why young black men take guns and kill  and rob other blacks.

There’s no real bartering when the police and school  unions sit down across the table from the  politicians — the Democrats — who they paid to put in office.  For example, t he SEIU  paid $60 million to put Obama in office in 2008.

We don’t need ‘structural racism’ to explain why black Democrat politicians   in large cities  do nothing about the power of police unions and the power exerted by school unions.

Why unions for public employees stay in power:   Old fashioned greed is a simple and better explanation why no change over the  years.    Both sides want more and both give to each other more  to get more.

This is why there should not be public employee unions.  There has to be an adversarial relationship when those representing the public purse sit down to discuss money with representatives of public schools and the police.

So what to do so young blacks stop killing and robbing other blacks? Become part of the solution.  How?

Unions:   Rein in and  get rid of the  corrupt power of unions in schools and the police.

Churches:  Are you a member of a church?  Get local churches to cooperate and work together.     Episcopals  with Catholics, Protestants    and others —  can  work collaboratively to support family values that weaken and reduce the power of  Hispanic and Black  gangs.   That’s a no brainer.  Encourage  young men to  marry  and staying married to the women with whom they have children.  That’s also a no brainer.   Intact families with a mother and father in the home create and raise children who go to college and get jobs.  How support families?    How and when? Do so  around Christmas which celebrates the birth of Jesus into a family with a father in the home.

The organization Black Lives Matters:   Call out Black Lives Matters for what it is —   a marxist organization which is anti- nuclear family and  puts forth  policies and  falsehoods   which  harm  blacks.  Look at their website carefully.  There is no message on the BLM  web site saying to black men to STOP killing other blacks.    There is no support  on the  BLM web site  for  black fathers to marry the mothers of their children.  There’s no discussion of the importance of male  relationships between fathers and sons. And, there is no  BLM message to young woman to ‘stop aborting black babies’ and re-think whether  a government check and transfer payments for the next 18 years is a good deal.

Schools:  Work to create more  charter schools  in your community and use of money that will  mean more accountability by public schools to produce better educated  (literate and meet specific standards  in math and reading) young people of all color.  Blacks don’t learn to read in CA schools.    Require schools to provide  classes that can assist all students in  getting jobs.  Require all students to learn at least one skill that could lead to a job.

Black Lives Matter? What say church leaders (Trinity Covenant, Episcopal, Catholic) about racism, looting & violence on Trinity Sunday

Killing blacks.  Looting.  Violence.  Black Lives Matter?  So what say Catholic, Episcopal and Trinity Covenant church leaders in Aptos, CA  — if anything —  on Trinity Sunday  about the recent  killing of an unarmed black,  about riots and looting?

The Catholic priest at Resurrection Church  said nothing  about recent events.  no reference to the riots, the looting or the killing of  an unarmed black man by  a white policeman.  What Fr. R  said:   God is love and love means relationships and ….   make your daily relationships about love.  God is love and love means relationship.  A simple message.   Catch it on You Tube.

At  Trinity Covenant Church the  minister  T.M.  started his sermon with the words, It’s a sin to kill.  It’s a  sin to loot….    He went on to say, Look at Black Lives Matter website,  See  what the Movement  stands for. You will find that   Black Lives Matter  is  anti-family….  Of note, at Trinity Covenant you can worship in the sanctuary (with  social distancing), outside in your car  in the parking lot  or listen in from home.

Take a look at the Black Lives Matters website.   Click the link.   Black Lives Matters  promotes  inter-generational, non-nuclear family arrangements. There’s  mothers,  kids  and  they all live together with perhaps  a queer or two. Maybe an aunt or two also hanging out with them. No mention about men and their role.

Hey, Black Lives Matters folks:  Where are the Afro-American  men that fathered  the children? Who is telling black men  to stop killing other  blacks and start raising kids with a mother and father present in the home? A terribly huge percentage of black deaths (85+%)  are committed by black men.  That is the real problem.  Last year police killed twice as many white unarmed me (19) compared to black unarmed men (9).  Those are the hard, cold statistics that Black Lives Matters chooses to ignore. Check out last week’s Wall Street Journal for the most recent statistics.

Who is going to tell blacks to wake up and smell the roses?   Check out the facts. If you black mamas  and black poppas want  your children to go to college then get married and stay married.   And put your  kids in Charter Schools with non-union teachers. And stop buying into the victimhood card. That’s my view.

The website Black Lives Matters celebrates Obama’s  ‘if only I had a son he’d look like Trevon Martin. Black Lives Matters   celebrates the Gentle Giant of Ferguson,  the supposed martyr who died after he reached in the police car to grab a gun.   Both those   supposed ‘heroes’  of Black Lives Mater are  men  with long rap sheets and  a history of violence and use of  illegal drugs.

Yes, start listening.  Click the link and   Listen to  Candice Owens, a young articulate black  with views why blacks celebrate black thugs as martyrs.  It’s a community thing. You are a ‘honky’ if want to succeed and you are a martyr if you have a violent history and rap sheet.  No other culture celebrates thugs as heroes she notes.

Now, what about  the episcopal church leaders  in Aptos?  What says the episcopal  priest on Trinity Sunday? Mother T  of St. John’s focused on  current events specifically on  systemic racism in America.

How Whites should  / or  might  respond to the ‘ systemic racism of  police killing Black’ s  was the  sermon topic Trinity Sunday   by Mother T.     The day before,  she  attended a Black Lives Matter  rally   6/6/ 2020  in Watsonville CA  where   Mother T   held a   sign,  Black Lives are Holy, Sacred and Created in God’s image. There, she saw another sign,   White Silence Equals Black Deaths. She went to the Black Lives Matter rally  in Watsonville, CA to end white silence.

Mother T  with St. John’s  prefaced her sermon that  she identifies as White and  in her sermon was speaking to other Whites.

Essence of  Mother T’s sermon:  Sometimes white people need to stop talking and start listening. Repeat that sentence.

One way to start listening she says   is to join  the Facebook group  Be the Bridge.   This group  requires new members to engage in active listening (no posting and no comments) for three months. Three whole months.  That impresses Mother T.  (It is easy to join. Just follow 3 rules.)

Any discussion of the Trinity on Trinity Sunday   at St. John’s? Not that I noticed. Mother T suggested that  her mostly White parishioners focus on the  re pre-scribed reading for the day, The Creation Story.    God created the world and saw it was good.

The episcopal Mother T  added,   There are no adequate analogies to understand the Trinity so   be silent in the face of all we don’t know.

Like a good read?  Try  Dorothy Sayers Begin Here, the Mind of the Maker.  Sayers writes that  God is the  Creator and He knows the end of the Story.  And he knows the  main players  such as His son and the Holy  Spirit.  Sayers  writes  good crime novels too.

For more on  Dorothy Sayers,  read Robin Phillips Saints and Scoundrels. 

What say you about the riots, looting and what the local church  leaders in Aptos  have to say about Black Lives Matter on Trinity Sunday?   Put your 2 cents in!

How help stop racism & keep CA colorblind? Stop ACA5 from passing …

How you can help  stop racism and keep California colorblind?

Pick up  a phone and call your legislature and oppose passage of ACA5 by the CA state legislature.

Assembly Constitutional Amendment N0. 5 aka ACA5 kills Proposition 209 which in 1996  made it illegal to consider race in making decisions who gets into CA state schools.  Proposition 209 has made it possible for far more minorities to enter the UC system and for far more to graduate.  The numbers are there which show that Proposition 209 is a success story.   More minorities go and more minorities graduate now thanks to Proposition 209.

For those living in Santa Cruz CA and near by your representatives in CA government are  Mark Stone   (916 319 2029) (831 425 2570)  and Bill Monning (916 651 4017) (831 425-0401)   are your representatives.

Another way to contact Mark Stone is via Facebook.  

Mark Stone is a co-author of ACA-5.  Per  telephone contact  6/2/2020  with  one of Mr. Stone’s Santa Cruz  field representatives,   Mr. Stone believes that getting rid of Prop. 209 is a good thing which  will create a level playing ground. 

How about an invitation?  One way to get some questions answered:    Let’s get Mr. Stone on KSCO 1080 in Santa Cruz  so locals can get answers to their questions.  Michael Z of 1080 attended UCSC  years ago.  From Mr. Stone’s Facebook page, why not invite him to speak on the radio via KSCO 1080? 

This is a crucial week for registering opposition to ACA5.    The Democrat controlled CA State Legislature  want ACA 5 on the ballot in November.  ACA 5 makes race central again in deciding who gets into state schools. Why the push now?  With the pandemic and riots dominating the news now,   it’s a  convenient  time  to push the race card and get ACA 5 on the ballot without even a vote in the CA Senate.

ACA 5 overturns Proposition 209 the successful ballot initiative passed in 1996 which made it illegal for CA to consider race for awarding contracts, in hiring for public jobs and in deciding who is admitted to  CA state schools. Ward Connerly, age 81, is back in the saddle working to join the fight against a new effort to overturn what he accomplished in 1996 and return race to the center of how decisions are made.

Those who care about a colorblind CA and that it remain that way can  join Wenyuan Wu’s organization Asian-American Coalition for Education. Wu’s organization   part of a broader  alliance of Asian-American groups trying to stop ACA 5.  Click here  to become a member of  Wu’s organization and fight racism in education.

Organizations that oppose CA proposed legislation  ACA5   include  a broad range of organizations:  the Asian American Legal Foundation,  Facebook group  Asians Not Brainwashed by Media and Fair  Chance for Asians to the Panda Kung Fu Center of the Univerisity of California, Chinese Alumni Association and Silicon Valley Chinese Association Foundation.

These associations have  organized against ACA 5 because Ms Wu says, “If it passes, Asian-American students will be further scapegoated and penalized in college admissions.”

Proposition 209 has resulted in more — not less — minorities graduating from CA state schools.  See below from Jacoby with

Antelope Valley Press who  writes Who are the enemies of 209?

“In the University of California system, four-year graduation rates of underrepresented racial minorities rose from 31.3 percent [before Proposition 209] … to 43.3 percent during 2001-03. In 2014, underrepresented racial minorities’ four-year graduation rate rose to a record high of 55.1 percent.”

Jacoby continues:  “And what is true of graduation rates is equally true of enrollment. Both in absolute numbers and as a percentage of all admissions, there are more minority students on University of California campuses than ever before. The charge that Proposition 209 “stymied” diversity in California’s public higher-education system, Wu says flatly, “is simply untrue.”

“Last summer, the University of California system admitted the largest and most diverse class of freshmen in its history — without resorting to racial quotas. Fully 40 percent of the new undergraduates, reported the Los Angeles Times, were African-American, Hispanic, or American Indian.”

So why are the Democrats in Sacramento pushing ACA5 now?  Because with the pandemic and now riots it’s easy for the Democrats to push it through.  So they think.  So  — pickup your phone.  Call your representatives.  And call radio stations in your area.

Democrat  fat cats in CA state legislature go after the mouse  of Proposition 209 which  in 1996 made it illegal to consider race in awarding contracts, in hiring and in school admissions.

The  Democrat  cats running  state government in CA  go after  Proposition 209  ‘mouse’ ….    Run mouse run!  Run for your life!    Most ‘experts’ expect ACA5 to win if it makes it on the CA  ballot in Nov.  That’s why it’s important to act now.  Pick up your phone?   What say you……

Betsy Ross — a shoe in for heroine? What say, Kaepernick?

Symbols of  American freedom matter.  Don’t sell shoes  with a Betsy Ross flag?   Why? Because African-American  Kaepernick   finds  the Ross  flag symbol offensive and associated with slavery.  Get real.

Does Kaepernick know anything about Betsy Ross?  Anything about  early American history?

Betsy Ross is a woman  to admire not  spurn.

Let’s  compare  2019 ex- football player Colin  Kaepernick  with  1776 seamstress Betsy Ross:

Personal commitments to family?  Kaepernick has a girl friend [Nessa Diag] since 2015. He’s not married and no children.  Betsy Ross was soon widowed  after marrying at age 21  outside her Quaker faith which caused her to be  ‘read out of the  Quaker church’ for doing so.    She  later married  again and had children.

  • Professional skills?   Colin  Kaepernick  was a second string quarter back who turned down a  contract with the San Francico  49ers.  He is a rich,  civil rights agitator.
  • Betsy Ross  was child number 8 of 17 children. Betsy   attended a Quaker school 8 hours a day to learn sewing, reading and writing. She became a skilled seamstress.  Fairly soon after marriage to John Ross at age 21,  Betsy’s husband  died  while he was guarding  ammunition.
  • A few months  after her husband’s death, Betsy met with the Committee of Three which included George Washington. This meeting  lead to  Betsy Ross’  sewing of  the first American flag.

Slavery? Betsy Ross was an abolitionist.

firenze sage–Black football player finds no racism in Mexico

Taking a knee  — during a football game in Mexico.

Before the NFL game in Mexico City between the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots, Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch demonstrated an historic cluelessness.

Running back Lynch  takes knee protesting U.S. anthem in Mexico and stands for Mexican flag

Lynch, a regular kneeler this year during the playing of the national anthem before the games, actually stood for the Mexican national anthem — before protesting the U.S.  flag by taking a knee.

What  black football running back Lynch does not know about skin color and racism in Mexico —  skin color  dominates  Mexican society.

Overall, one’s skin color is the major determinant of that person’s place in  Mexican society- educationally, occupationally, connection-wise and status-wise. Dating back almost 500 years to when the Spanish conquistadors’ blood began mixing with that of the indigenous population, in Mexico lighter skinned people have been considered to be more desirable, more worthy and more beautiful than darker skinned individuals.

Just take a look at who is employed where. Generally speaking, the most sought after, best, most important and highest paid jobs are disproportionately filled by those that have the lightest skin. Lighter skinned persons dominate such professional fields as medicine, dentistry, engineering and architecture. The same can be said about the upper echelons of politics and in academia. Conversely, the lowest paying jobs and those with the least social status such as housekeepers/maids, construction workers, street vendors, restaurant kitchen workers, and public transportation employees are unfortunately the “birth right” of those with darker skin.

Nowhere is this racial/ethnic discriminatory dichotomy in Mexico  more visually apparent than in the worlds of entertainment and advertising. In the country’s numerous and popular telenovas/soap operas usually the lead roles are portrayed by light skinned performers with darker skinned persons normally portraying “subservient” roles as maids, cooks or gardeners or “villains” such as criminals.

How could that running back not know?  Get a bite to eat  for an hour in any small taco/ burrito shop in the U.S.  with Mexican music and TV playing.   One does not have to go to Mexico to see how light skin is depicted via TV.

   Firenze Sage:   It is not racism that is the problem. Let us start with ignorance.

 

Explaining Trump: racism why Trump got votes says one researcher

racism black and white  Racism.  

Trump got votes  because of racism  one researcher says.   Oh?  Let’s look at his research.  

According to a controversial new analysis by theWashington Post, Trump voters were motivated by “racism” more than a number of other factors — such as “authoritarianism —  in their presidential ballot choice last November.

Guess how researchers measure “authoritarianism”:  how you say you raise your kids, whether  parents teach children  to follow the rules or  parents teach children to be sympathetic towards  people.  But, perhaps parents  teach both?  Why assume an either this or that?

The incendiary piece, titled “Racism motivated Trump voters more than authoritarianism” was written by Thomas Wood, an assistant professor of Political Science at Ohio State University, and proposes to examine the results of the latest American National Election Study (ANES) regarding voter attitudes.

 Mr. Wood bases his skewed conclusions on a series of assumptions that reveal deep misunderstandings regarding the nature of racism, as well as Wood’s own profound racial biases.

To begin with, Wood only analyzed the opinions of white voters—his own racially biased choice.

How black voters feel about whites, or what motivated many blacks to vote for Trump is disregarded as irrelevant to his study. Yet, in looking at racism, why would an objective examiner only look at the attitudes of whites?

Second, in the four questions looked at by Wood, racism is never actually addressed. Instead, Wood employs a “symbolic racism scale” that interprets people’s views on programs like Affirmative Action as concealing a hidden racism that is never overtly expressed. Wood said that these attitudes are “coded as more racially biased.”

Firenze Sage:   You must read the whole study to see what causes his conclusions to be racial. Essentially he takes attitudes, analyzes them and then calls you names.

Susan Rice un-masking: what happened to homophobic, islamaphobic and disipated

susab rice unmaskingMeltdown, Claim Susan Rice ‘Unmasking’ Controversy Is Racist and Sexist

By Curtis Houck | April 4, 2017 | 8:36 PM EDT

On Tuesday’s edition of Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews and MSNBC political analyst/Mother Jones D.C. bureau chief David Corn were unglued over the Susan Rice “unmasking” controversy, suggesting that it was racist and sexist for these accusations to be leveled at the former National Security Adviser because she’s never done anything wrong.

There are microaggressions. There are oh, I didn’t — you speak so well. These are microaggressions that are forms of prejudice and discrimination that we have to address.”

Sanders added that just because a county voted for Obama, and then voted for Trump, “doesn’t mean that they don’t have elements of prejudice, of discrimination, of racism. That is the equivalent of saying I have a black friend.

Firenze Sage: I don’t think that more than 3 non zombies believe that people in chains was the thrust of Make America Great Again, but then maybe Symone Sanders was the spawn of a black slave owner.

deplorables

Who is racist? More than half of Trump’s supporters  – the  ‘deplorables’   – are racist says Dana Milbank.  

Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank doubles down on Hillary Clinton’s assertion about the “deplorables”.  In Milbank’s words, more than “half” of Donald Trump’s supporters are an “irredeemable” “basket of deplorables” who are, in her words, “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic.”

Milbank writes that that far from being incorrect in her denunciation, Clinton may in fact have “low-balled the number” by claiming only “half” are racist.

Hillary Clinton may have been unwise to say half of Donald Trump’s supporters are racists and other “deplorables.” But she wasn’t wrong. If anything, when it comes to Trump’s racist support, she might have low-balled the number says Milbank.
