Mob rule coming to a city near you. People were worried about republicans. Republicans are weak and fold like paper. Dems are holding great power now with Big tech, foreign agencies and the media.

I think it is very important for people to understand that there is NO "systemic racism" in the United States.

Such a thing is very different from isolated examples of prejudice or unfair treatment. Systemic racism means state-sponsored racism that is legal and encouraged: manifest mistreatment of minority groups that is pervasive. Things like apartheid, Jim Crow laws, or outright persecution are examples. 

The US is over 50 years removed from the Civil Rights movement, and numerous laws have been passed to correct past discrimination. We now have affirmative action, set-asides for minority businesses, anti-red-lining laws, etc. We have black members of congress and had a black president.

When people tell me I have "white privilege" or that systemic racism exists in the US, I ask them:

1. What right or immunity do I possess that a black man does not possess in this country?

2. What occupations or political appointments are you prevented in obtaining because of the color of your skin?

3. Are you prevented from owning real estate, stocks, or debt instruments in this country because you are black?

4. How is the culture denigrating your people? Do you not see films, tv shows, etc. in which black people are portrayed favorably?

This idea of systemic racism and white privilege is a monstrous lie that is promoted by the radical left in an effort to destabilize the country and to cause conflict. It also convinces poor blacks that they cannot get a fair shake, and shouldn't bother working, or becoming productive members of society.

As in India, where some politicians push hatred against Muslims for political gain, politicians here push hatred against whites. We are demonized as oppressors.

77% of black births are to single mothers

Atheism in the US is growing, and has tripled in the last 10 years or so

So kids are raised in a family with no father, and they don't go to church/mosque. Many drop out of school.

This is a massive cultural and religious problem. Simply blaming white people for this stuff doesn't do anything to correct it, and instead makes things worse

and poverty does not equal violence and despair. There are many countries "poorer" than the US, where the net worth and income of the average citizen is much lower, and yet there is far less violence and problems.

Iran is much "poorer" than the US in terms of GDP per capita, average income, etc., and that country is 10 times safer. People can walk down the street in Tehran and not have to worry about getting mugged or shot. People are not using drugs, and huge gangs are not controlling parts of the city.

Obviously GDP is meaningless. I wonder how much income disparity correlates with crime and despair.

I don’t know if you’ve ever been to Tehran, but that place is dangerous. Women get mugged nearly everyday, people do abuse drugs, there are gangs, and even taxi drivers have a history of sexually abusing their passengers. People walk on a whole a lot more because 1. Traffic is a nightmare. Far worse than LA traffic. 2. It’s a part of the culture to walk everywhere nearby.

Exactly! Yet if you think such a way some members will say you need to read a book or talk to your neighbors. Smh. The late economist Thomas Sowell has a lot of works debunking the myth of white privilege. It shouldn't matter but for those who do not know Thomas Sowell was black. He also was a marxists in his youth and saw the light so gave up that corrupt destructive ideology.

Salam this is too much exagerrating  about Tehran definetly  everyday mugging women is not true but like other megacities it has a mugging rate but it's lower than any big American  city same as abusing drugs which happens in slums in souther part of Tehran which  these places are like gettos for too poor people  & new immigrants from other poor points of Iran which also gangs that no gang controls  any any part of cities but there is thieves with family  relationship  which do rubbery toghether . also such taxi drivers are very rare which all of these rare people are from unregistered  drivers which do it as black work but all of registered  derivers are under total survelience  for moral acitivity. I agree somehow about traffic & bad culture of driving but I haven't  been in L.A to compare it with Tehran.

Former Ambassador Andrew Young in an interview once replied to this with, "You don't need to 'read a book' when you have lived it."

Honestly I could care less about this subject. George Floyd was a criminal and addicted to drugs.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has depicted the late George Floyd as a Muslim martyr.

In a Friday, June 12, 2020 sermon that aired on Palestine Today TV, Gaza Islamic scholar Dr. Taher Al-Lulu lectured his audience about "racial discrimination imposed by Trump and the whites." He could barely contain his glee that "for 10 days, America has been engulfed in flames ... We pray to Allah that these flames will burn the sons of Zion, America."

Turkey's Islamist president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, always looking for an opportunity to detract attention from the millions of Christians killed by the Ottoman Empire he hopes to resurrect as well as from the brutalities committed by his own regime, denounced in English "the racist and fascist approach that led to the death of George Floyd in the US city of Minneapolis as a result of torture," adding "We will be monitoring the issue."

Iran jumped hard on the George Floyd bandwagon, so it comes as no surprise that it held a tasteless cartoon contest (the "I can't breathe exhibit") and gave Floyd (who was not a Muslim) the Soleimani treatment by portraying him as a Shi'ite saint.

It seems that many “Muslims” are echoing the DNC’s line on “racism” rather than conducting honest research on the situation in the U.S. in this regard.

What would Shakespeare say? Rutgers takes a knee to Black Lives Matter, declares English grammar ‘racist’

The English Department at Rutgers University said it would ‘stand with’ BLM by focusing on ‘racism in the classroom,’ evidenced by the emphasis on grammar. Will colleges prove more destructive than the riots just witnessed...

Under the heading entitled ‘Incorporating critical grammar into our pedagogy,’ Walkowitz said writing instruction “should limit emphasis on grammar/sentence-level issues so as to not put students from multilingual, non-standard ‘academic’ English backgrounds at a disadvantage.”  

Instead, it encourages students to develop a critical awareness of the variety of choices available to them w/ regard to micro-level issues in order to empower them and equip them to push against biases based on ‘written’ accents,” the professor continued.

In other words, students whose first language is not English, or who come from “non-standard ‘academic English backgrounds” (i.e. Black Americans) should not be unduly ‘punished’ in the classroom for their sub-par writing skills. Instead, they should fall back on a “variety of choices” that empowers them despite their haphazard work. The part where Walkowitz mentions the “biases based on ‘written’ accents” suggests that those “biases” are the failing grades, while the “written accents” is a polite euphemism for ‘mistakes,’ which, in these days of political correctness, nobody is allowed to make. Actually, they are free to make mistakes; it’s just that nobody, not even the teacher, is permitted to draw attention to them.

The not-so-subtle argument being pushed is that since English is not the original lingua franca of Black Americans, and other minorities, who have a different native origin and therefore different comprehension of such nuances and should not be expected to suffer. Their grammatical and writing errors are more the fault of the historic colonizer, the dreaded White man, as opposed to their own failings to grasp the rules of the English language.

Let there be light… so long as it’s decolonised. Right-on academics condemn the science of illumination as ‘white male dominated’

According to a new Canadian university project, physics is “a mirror of colonial patterns and social inequality, particularly “in the context of light.”

There are plenty of problems with that outlook. It suggests that ethnic minority writers and thinkers should be included in college courses because of the colour of their skin, rather than the brilliance of their ideas. It also suggests that students can only really learn if education is “relevant” to them. After decades of fighting for equality, it seems we are now re-racialising society. Worse, this re-racialisation is seen as progressive.

But the idea of decolonising has gone further, suggesting that there are different systems of knowledge between cultures, and that these different “ways of knowing” are equivalent; that they all deserve “respect,” rather than scepticism and testing. A new example of this is a project at Concordia University in Canada called Decolonizing Light. The project introduction explains:

“Even more than other sciences, physics is a white male dominated field and, thus, a mirror of colonial patterns and social inequality. Despite this fact, physics is considered as ‘hard’ and objective science, disconnected from social life and geopolitical history. This narrative both constitutes and reproduces inequality, which is reflected by the underrepresentation of women, racialized people, and Indigenous peoples in physics.”

There's nothing wrong with striving to ensure that institutional barriers don't get in the way of everyone – regardless of sex or ethnic background – being able to pursue study and a career in physics. But this project seems to go further, seeking to investigate how colonial scientific knowledge authority was and is still reproduced in the context of light. The researchers are exploring “Indigenous ontologies and epistemologies” and “studying colonial anchor points in the history of physics in the context of light.”

This month, Americans got another bitter taste of ‘progressive’ insanity from one of the most unexpected of places. The Mathematical Association of America (MAA), which prides itself as “the world’s largest community of mathematicians, students, and enthusiasts,” came out and declared that “mathematics is created by humans and therefore inherently carries human biases.

The MAA’s revelation came in its October newsletter, which reads more like a fiery political manifesto than any mundane briefing on the math scene. It continued, “Reaching this potential in mathematics relies upon the academy and higher education engaging in … uncomfortable conversations about the detrimental effects of race and racism on our community.”

Much to the consternation of the MAA, President Donald Trump banned these teachings at the federal level in an executive order, which, among other ideas, says the idea that meritocracy is “racist or sexist” is a “divisive concept.

Black, Latino, and other minority groups in America should find it insulting that educators in California believe that they are incapable of understanding mathematics, that they cannot understand any situation outside of their own personal experiences, and that they are incapable of getting the right answer to a math problem.

This nonsense, called “Equitable Math,” is described on a webpage entitled “The Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction: Resources and guidance to support Black, LatinX, and Multilingual students to thrive in grades 6-8.” The work was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. I find it ironic that a man who made his fortune creating software that must get the math right to control most of the essential electronics in use today is promoting an “anti-racist” mathematics where right answers are unimportant and students should only work on problems that are within their immediate experience.
