Your Food Is Not Racist

 

You there. Yes, you, standing between your pantry and refrigerator. It is time for a “conversation” about race. We’ll start with your food. Open your pantry. Look on the shelf. That one. There.

See that five-pound bag of white granulated sugar? Do you know the racist history of sugar plantations and cultivation in our hemisphere, from Haiti to the southern slaves who were forced to cultivate it?

‘White Privilege’ in the US; ‘Black Privilege’ in Africa? ‘Han Privilege’ in China?

 

All the wailing and gnashing of teeth over “whiteness,” “white privilege,” and “white supremacy” in the United States, and the supposed problems “non-white” people has got me wondering – what happens in the parts of the world in which a particular group of “non-white” people dominate the culture and/or the power structures, such as sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Central and South America. This is probably best answered by someone who has lived in areas other than the United States or Europe.

I am a 65-year-old pale-skinned man of English and German ancestry with blue eyes and a little blond hair remaining on my head. I live in Texas.

When Progressives Last Ran America

 

“There is nothing new under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9

A major pandemic that killed more than 600,000 Americans is finally winding down. Taxes are raised on individuals and corporations. The nation has experienced the most progressive presidency in American history. White supremacy is a major threat, as race riots hit some cities. Systemic racism is everywhere. Soldiers are coming home after a long war. A reportedly debilitated President is largely protected by his spouse. Major movements are afoot to improve the human condition.

On Supremacy – Part 1 Situation Report

 

(Continued in Part 2 Course of Action)

There is a supremacy battle raging in varying degrees around developed nations between Leftist and Non-Leftist world views, with the Left acting as the aggressor by virtue of its inherent goals and methods. Leftists have always used chaos and division with racism as a well-tested tactic to raise votes and funds by political figures, such as Al Sharpton. The clash is reaching a new fever pitch in the United States with the rise of a twist on the old racism theme: “white supremacy.”

Join Jim and Greg as they credit National Journal’s Josh Kraushaar for documenting how President Biden has started far more to the left than he promised during the campaign. They also get a kick out of AOC allies targeting a a new Super PAC at defeating Democrats Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema after they refused to kill the legislative filibuster in the Senate. And they have fun with a column from a far left San Francisco teacher, who claims Bernie Sanders demonstrated white privilege with the coat and mittens he wore to the inauguration.

They just got their categorization wrong by failing to distinguish between race and culture. But if their categorization of race as inseparable from culture is correct, the conclusion may be that people of different races cannot live together in a society, and we would be better served by building separate race-based societies, rather than trying […]

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss the growing discord in Hong Kong, as demonstrators demand their freedom but also fear Chinese intervention. They also discuss  CNN host Chris Cuomo’s rant at a heckler for calling him “Fredo.” And Alexandra unloads on Harvard Prof. Laurence Tribe for alleging that white supremacy and the pro-life movement are intertwined. 

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome new polling showing that even in our bitterly divided, a strong majority of New Yorkers have a strongly negative opinion of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.  They also slam Texas Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro for publicizing the names of San Antonio residents who have given the maximum contribution to President Trump’s re-election campaign and declaring they are funding a campaign of hate against Hispanic immigrants.  And they roll their eyes as an MSNBC analyst insists President Trump is doing Neo-Nazis a huge favor by raising the American flag from half-staff on Thursday.

Make Them Own It: Part 2

 

Make them own it” was a call to hold the Democratic Party and the left fully accountable for its past and present misdeeds. Continuing to honor Woodrow Wilson, through the Woodrow Wilson Center and places named for him, has become incongruous with claims of justice and righting past wrongs. Indeed, controversy over Wilson’s name on a school in the District of Columbia raises an additional issue of past injustice and present claims for social justice.

Celebrated to this day as a founder of modern progressive government, Woodrow Wilson created the environment within which the Klu Klux Klan reemerged with a vengeance.

After seeing the film, an enthusiastic Wilson reportedly remarked: “It is like writing history with lightning, and my only regret is that it is all so terribly true.” African-American audiences openly wept at the film’s malicious portrayal of blacks, while Northern white audiences cheered. The film swept the nation. Riots broke out in major cities (Boston and Philadelphia, among others), and it was denied release in many other places (Chicago, Ohio, Denver, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and Minneapolis). Gangs of whites roamed city streets attacking blacks. In Lafayette, Indiana, a white man killed a black teenager after seeing the movie. Thomas Dixon reveled in its triumph. “The real purpose of my film,” he confessed gleefully, “was to revolutionize Northern audiences that would transform every man into a Southern partisan for life.”

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are grateful to see Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson rebuke Jussie Smollett for perpetrating a hate crime hoax and damaging the reputation of the city. Johnson also blasted the media for ignoring serious issues while providing wall to wall coverage of Smollett. They’re also horrified by reports of a active duty military officer who plotted to kill many people with bombings, shootings, and outbreaks of disease. And they correct MSNBC hosts Katy Tur and Ari Melber for claiming that George Washington was a “native son of New York”.

Confederate Statues, Affirmative Action, and Cheap Racial Virtue

 

Facilitated by media manipulation and exploitation, people have lost perspective trying to outdo one another in their moral condemnation of racial supremacy witnessed in Charlottesville, Virginia.

(Because the media finally found actual white racists to cover, rather than smearing white people who reject their coercive, politicized agenda as racists, this was a big story.)

We are, as Scott Adams notes, in the middle of a mass public hysteria. To people outside the current mass hysteria, it’s obvious that Donald Trump is not a Russian puppet, that Mike Pence has no desire to electrocute gay teenagers, and … most of all… that racism is not running amok in the country.

Want to know how Charlottesville happened? Read this, and ask yourself, could it happen where you live? … in his small town, he had a support network.  Friends and family that could help him out.  Someone who could watch the kids if he had to work overtime.  In Indy, it was daycare and babysitters, which […]

What would an awards show be without a black award recipient taking the time to energize the viewing audience by basking in the collective black identity of being the perennial victim of anti-black racism? Possibly an awards show actually worth watching. Possibly. Preview Open

Trump’s David Duke Denials

 

David Suderman, Senior Editor at Reason Magazine, is wondering why Trump pretends to not to have any knowledge of supporter David Duke, when in 2000 Trump specifically pointed Duke out as the reason why Trump wouldn’t ever run on a ‘Reform Party’ ticket.

The White Hot Rage of Bernie Sanders

 

enhanced-buzz-27606-1374157301-26Surrounded by tens of supporters, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders announced his candidacy for the White House Tuesday. Though his entry has been rumored for months, the very old, very white socialist shocked observers by delivering the most searing indictment of Obama’s America that has ever been carried on basic cable.

Looking grimly upon six years of Obama’s failed leadership, Sanders characterized the United States as a Hobbesian hellscape run by greedy oligarchs, double-dealing pols, and shadowy special interests. Delivering his speech in a state that is only one percent African-American, the white-haired, pink-skinned 73-year-old angrily denounced an America that has passed him by.

I have gathered Sen. Sanders most incendiary attacks on the leadership of America’s first black president:
