Make Benefit for Conflict

Taleb is learning that some races are more equal than others.

For example, here's a story from Quebec:

A high school teacher in Montréal-Nord is being called out after using the N-word multiple times during an online class captured on video.  The man in the video has been identified as Vincent Ouellette, a history teacher at Henri-Bourassa High School, a large and diverse French school in the city's northeast end.

You see, only Black people can say nigger without consequences. If a White person utters that word, then Black people combust:

"I understand it was in an academic setting, but to still see a white person — someone's white mouth saying these words — I was taken aback. It was wrong to me."

Instead of shrugging and moving on with her life, she is basically saying that White people can't say that word because Black people are feeble and fragile. Also, more Affirmative Action please, because Black people are dumb.

This is one reason why diversity in large numbers doesn't work. Sooner or later, you get utterly different academic and legal standards for the diverse races which only accelerates the inherent conflict between the groups.


Basement Biden

"I have never said I oppose fracking."

-- Creepy Joe

One of the dumbest things that Creepy Joe did in the debate today was to tell The God-Emperor to show the tape.

The Blue Wall is not amused by this nonsense:


Public education is child abuse

Parents can see the fear and loathing from the teachers in real-time:

This fall, I had the disturbing experience of sitting in on my daughter's second-grade Zoom class. A full-time school psychologist kicked off her weekly session of "Social Emotional Learning" by prompting the seven-year-olds to admit that COVID-19 is scary. Do you have anything at home that makes you feel better when you're frightened? She instructed the kids to leave their computers and return with an object that they might cuddle for the remainder of class.

The lesson plans are the same: Fuck White People!

Last week, Rosiak created a website—whataretheylearning.com—to aggregate the materials sent to him by parents across the country. The trove is astonishing. In Virginia, an elementary school teacher used a slide to teach her students that "objectivity" and "individualism" are part of a "white supremacy culture." In New York, a third-grade teacher directed children to count the races represented in the characters in their books in lieu of a math lesson. In Washington state, a high school used Ibram X. Kendi's How to Be an Antiracist as the basis for a 40-slide indictment of America as a nation overwhelmed by systemic racism and informed its students that they, too, are racist. Any doubt of their own racism, students were assured, merely reflected their inability to apprehend their own implicit biases.

A few schools are afraid of the light.

The Rutherford County School system in Tennessee [...] asked parents to sign an agreement pledging that they would not observe their children's online classes.


Whores covering for Creepy Joe

New York Post:

“Facebook is almost an arm of the Democratic Party — an arm of the far-left wing of the Democratic Party.” So said the former Facebook insider as we sat down for an interview at a Midtown restaurant Friday afternoon.

Of course.

It was a Facebook communications manager, Andy Stone, who on Thursday announced the firm was reducing circulation of The Post’s still-undisputed reporting on the Hunter Files — an employee who happened to work for Democratic lawmakers before joining the tech giant.


Don't hire Muslims

Businesses are finding out that some Muslims simply refuse to do their jobs:

A fired flight attendant who worked for defunct ExpressJet Airlines is asking the Supreme Court to review a 6th Circuit decision that didn’t allow her to sue for requiring her to serve alcohol to passengers even though she’s Muslim.

Soon, we'll have a case where a Muslim woman wants to sue her former employer because they fired her for walking around in a garbage bag.


The evil of equality

The San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) is overhauling the way it grades students. Board members say the changes are part of a larger effort to combat racism. [...]

According to data presented by the district, under the old grading system, teachers fail minority students more than White students – a lot more. [...]

By ethnicity, 23% went to Native Americans. Another 23% of failing grades went to Hispanics. And 20% of D or F grades went to Black students.

By comparison, just 7% of failing marks went to White students.

Funny, there's no mention of failures among Asians. It probably wouldn't go well with the White Supremacy Narrative.

Also, note the wording: "teachers fail minority students". It's as though these horrible RAYCISSS teachers are simply handing out no-good very-bad low grades to poor colored students and the super compassionate bureaucrats have to step in to break the chains for the oppressed.

Academic grades will now focus on mastery of the material, not a yearly average, which board members say penalizes students who get a slow start, or who struggle at points throughout the year.

Another big change, teachers can no longer consider non-material factors when grading. Things like turning work in on time and classroom behavior will now instead count towards a student's citizenship grade, not their academic grade.

I don't even understand how there's zero penalty for not turning work in on time. There must be a deadline at some point. What if the final grade is out tomorrow morning and a student still hasn't handed in an essay? Is that a zero or does the essay not count in the average? And if students are allowed to hand in assignments the day before their grade is final, then what's the point of having phantom due dates for such tasks? Worse, if such assignments don't even count towards the final grade, then why would any student even bother?

The idiots in the classroom will simply ignore the work throughout the year and hand in shit at the last minute and scream RAYCISSS! if they fail. Then, the enlightened progressives will be shocked when the real world discriminates against these colored clowns with even greater ferocity.


Blacks are weak and fragile

Shit on White people in university as much as you want but say the word nigger in any context and you're gone:

“Early Tuesday morning, we learned that an adjunct professor at the law school used an offensive racial epithet (specifically, the “n word”) in the course of an academic class discussion on a particular case involving offensive language,” the email stated. “The instructor apologized and expressed his deep regret to the class, and informed the class at 1 p.m. today that he was resigning immediately from teaching at Pitt Law.

“We condemn the use of this word, and we believe that saying this word and words like it, even in an academic context, is deeply hurtful,” the noted added.

Is this Black Privilege or Nigger Fragility?


Ain't no cure for stupid

Social Justice comes for English:

On August 3, the Executive Committee of the Conference on College Composition and Communication approved a position statement on “Black Linguistic Justice.” The statement was crafted as a set of “demands” that “teachers stop using academic language and standard English as the accepted communicative norm.”

What, then, is the point of even teaching English?

The lengthy and repetitive statement is actually entitled “This Ain’t Another Statement! This is a DEMAND for Black Linguistic Justice!”

Break those chains!

“This list of demands was generously created by the 2020 CCCC Special Committee on Composing a CCCC Statement of Anti-Black Racism and Linguistic Justice, Or, Why We Cain’t Breathe.”

I laughed.


Because it helps Trump

More lame excuses by Twitter:

Twitter Inc on Thursday temporarily restricted U.S. President Donald Trump's election campaign account from tweeting, saying a video from the account about Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's son violated its rules.

The video posted by the @TeamTrump account referred to a New York Post story from Wednesday that contained alleged details of Hunter Biden's business dealings with a Ukrainian energy company and said the former vice president had met with an adviser of the company.

"Joe Biden is a liar who has been ripping off our country for years," the video was captioned.

Twitter said the video violated its rules against posting private information, adding the account may need to delete the post in order to continue tweeting.

Sure. Just like how Twitter blocked accounts when the Trump tax returns story made its appearance a few weeks ago. Also, Twitter was so swift in restricting accounts that featured the private audio recordings of Melania Trump.

DoublePlusUngood

Words can mean whatever the Left wishes them to mean:

Of course, for decades, we've seen the following usage.

-NAZI: anyone who is a threat to the power of the Left.


The Enemies of the People

The Democrats are very scared.


Creepy Joe's progeny

New York Post:

Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by The Post.

The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the Burisma board at a reported salary of up to $50,000 a month.

It was strange when Trump repeatedly brought up Hunter Biden in the first debate. Now, we see that there's a lot more to it.

Twitter suspended the account of an editor at the New York Post who tried to tweet about the corruption of Joe Biden and his son.


DIE at Starbucks

Starbucks will be offering exclusive help to weak and feeble colored employees:

Starting in fiscal 2021, Starbucks will launch a mentorship program to connect its Black, Indigenous and People of Color employees (BIPOC), known internally as “partners,” to senior leaders within the company. The company's senior vice president and above leaders will work with BIPOC partners to advance in their careers.

The woke mantra boils down to Fuck White People:

Starbucks also set a target of achieving BIPOC representation of "at least 30%" at all corporate levels and "at least 40%" across its retail and manufacturing jobs by 2025.


Jogger Privilege

Bands of shoplifters are terrorizing Soho’s high-end boutiques, lifting hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of designer merchandise, and in some cases, threatening security guards to keep quiet — or be labeled racist, The Post has learned.

The Poor Oppressed Coloreds (POC) are doing their mostly peaceful shopping:

In the latest incident, thieves twice plundered Moncler on Prince Street — which sells down jackets for nearly $2,000 — on Thursday, Oct. 1, according to the sources.

In the first incident, two individuals grabbed nearly two dozen down jackets, the businessperson told The Post. A few hours later, at 6 p.m., thieves snatched “more than $50,000” in merchandise and sped off in a white Jaguar and a black Audi, the law enforcement source said.


Supporting the God-Emperor

For decades the media treated Trump like the royalty of New York but when he started running for president as a Republican, he became the reincarnation of Hitler. The media has had to manufacture lies and distort the truth for five years to keep the ORANGE MAN BAD Narrative going. It doesn't take much to realize what's truly happening:


Cast it into the fire!

Tolkien's glorious Lord of the Rings will be defiled by Amazon:

Amazon Prime’s “Lord of the Rings” series set to release in 2021 has been eagerly anticipated by devoted LOTR fans around the world. The $1 billion series will be set in the Second Age of Middle Earth, which spans 3441 years, before the events of the LOTR movies.

Unfortunately, it looks like the creators of the series, which they claim is based on J.R.R Tolkien’s original work, may be trying to imitate “Game of Thrones”-type nudity and “rapey” storylines. This, no doubt, will delight the left, who have long detested Tolkien’s writing and distinctive Christian influence on popular culture.


Trumpslide!

The pure entertainment value of another media meltdown can't be denied. We'll have four more years of RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA RAYCISSS NAZI WHITE SUPREMACIST ORANGE MAN BAD!!!


Fake Polls

Zogby was correct on the popular vote result in 2016. He's now questioning the absurd poll numbers from the media:

Add John Zogby to the growing number of Democratic pollsters questioning major media surveys showing a double-digit lead by Joe Biden over President Trump.

“It’s closer than you think,” according to Zogby, who’s own John Zogby Strategies survey puts Biden’s lead at two points, 49%-47%.

In his latest podcast with son and pollster Jeremy Zogby, John Zogby said that polls showing a bigger Biden lead are using a bad model, one that includes far too many Democrats.

CNN had Creepy Joe with a 16-point lead! Biden is, like Hillary, nationally ahead but he won't be even getting close to a double-digit lead with a deeply divided America. Zogby is going to be proven right very soon. Again.


Enemy of the People

The media went ballistic when a White teenager was wearing a MAGA cap. Here, an aspiring politician models images of a monster who slaughtered tens of millions of his people and the media shrugs.


The Oppression Continues

Standards are for White people:

As companies grapple with their roles in contributing to racial equality and inequality, diversity and inclusion programs have taken on more importance in the corporate world.

But in retail, one well-regarded bicycle brand led by an industry legend is innovating a more direct approach to address racial inequality: reparations in the form of a 45% discount for Black customers.

Rivendell Bicycle Works, based in Walnut Creek, Calif., is offering the discount not because they are “a nice thing to do, but because they’re owed,” Grant Petersen, Rivendell’s president and founder, wrote in a post explaining the new policy.

This would be a sweet enterprise for a Black dude. Offer your bike-buying services for White people for a small fee. Any White person who pays full price there is, officially, an idiot.


Gold. Pure Gold.

In what's being hailed as a 14-dimensional Go move, President Trump added a Black Lives Matter decal to his SUV so he can take as many trips outside the hospital as he wants, and the media won't be able to claim he's spreading COVID.

"Checkmate," Trump said as he smiled and waved to reporters. "This is fantastic. Now, if I want to go grab a milkshake from the McDonald's drive-thru -- bam, Black Lives Matter sticker. Can't touch me. Can't criticize me. It's beautiful. Tremendous, really."

The best decal in the world.


Rich chumps

Prestige isn't cheap:

A group of parents at one of New York’s toniest private schools -- where tuition runs $54,180 a year -- is unhappy about the quality of their children’s education during the pandemic.

The Dalton School -- whose alumni include actress Claire Danes and journalist Anderson Cooper -- broke with many of the city’s private schools this fall in going with all-digital instruction until at least mid-year.


America is Huge!

Obesity facts from the US:

From 1999–2000 through 2017–2018, the prevalence of obesity increased from 30.5% to 42.4%, and the prevalence of severe obesity increased from 4.7% to 9.2%.

Non-Hispanic blacks (49.6%) had the highest age-adjusted prevalence of obesity, followed by Hispanics (44.8%), non-Hispanic whites (42.2%) and non-Hispanic Asians (17.4%).

Note that being non-obese doesn't necessarily mean that your body weight is healthy. Looking at the full data for adults in the US, we find that 72% are overweight.

It's staggering how bad policy, ignorance, and sugar-in-everything has made the US the fattest country in the world. There is hope for individuals. The fat can melt off with some serious willpower:


That tolerant Left again

One of the biggest reasons to oppose socialist healthcare:

The party that wants to take over and manage your healthcare cheered today as their political archnemesis, President Donald Trump, contracted COVID, hoping and praying to the godless universe that he would die.

Leftists who want to manage your healthcare for your own good also think it is a good thing when their political opponents fall ill, and they're especially excited when they die. From Trump's brother Robert to Herman Cain, whenever someone with the wrong beliefs dies, they are ecstatic.

The staff at Twitter must be working long hours this week:

Twitter warned Friday it will remove posts on its platform that wish for President Trump’s death after he announced he tested positive for COVID-19.
