  1. Obviously several people (myself included) disagree with you. Of larger concern might be your inability to see a shade of gray.
  2. Yes they are, to some extent. If after all of this discussion you still believe that the problem is 100% systemic and can be fixed exclusively by (more) government policies, if the inner city black community does not learn to embrace the nuclear family, the value of education, and the importance of personal accountability, we'll have this continued conversation for another 50 years. But a lot of people will feel less guilty due to the sheer amount of money we'll throw at it, so we'll have that going for us.
  3. "Hello class, today in math we will keep working on addition, in science we will look at rocks, and in history we'll explore the impact of the Great Migration on the reduction of inner city nuclear African American families."
  4. The narrative that anyone opposing CRT is a righty lemming following Gateway Pundit
  5. I find it interesting that an increasing number of posts here assert that the problem with conservatives is that they just don't understand CRT and are being told to hate it by right-wing media, yet those same posters don't realize that the left-wing MSM is the one pushing that narrative, and they are drinking that pablum. Somebody above provided an example of exploring an event which led to a conclusion that a majority of blacks don't have savings accounts because of something that happened generations ago. Mkay, let's go with that. I'm more than happy with such an exploration, but wha
  6. I don't mind that he likely didn't come up with the list himself, and would even not mind him not being able to rattle all 16 items off. But it would be nice if he were comfortable in how many there were in the list. These being critical infrastructure items and all. The above, on paper anyway, comes off as weak. I admittedly haven't heard audio tho.
  7. "Equity" = thinking Harrison Bergeron was a "how to" instruction manual. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harrison_Bergeron
  8. Great post, particularly the second paragraph since this is basically what I've been arguing for. As a conservative I'm all for learning about the events and their impacts: my wife and I this morning discussed how neither of us learned about Tulsa in school, and how this was a mistake in our education. I also like in the first paragraph where you highlight that this is a multiple generational issue. I don't believe there is a quick fix. I often view the push for "equity" vs. "equality" as a reach for a quick fix.
  9. I agree that this photo in and of itself is nothing, but I continue to find the MSM's lack of interest in investigating Biden's clear cognitive decline to be disappointing, although not surprising.
  10. Perhaps this is a fundamental linguistic issue then. Because I used to view "racist" as being quite a pejorative, but IMO it has been so co-opted that it has far less meaning. Your example is an interesting one; I think "lesser" is sufficiently all-encompassing that it makes the statement racist. What was the old judicial statement about pornography: I don't know how to define it, but I know it when I see it. Unfortunately that logic doesn't seem to hold true with racism.
  11. I think "intent" is a better word than "malice." The loose cigarette example is as good as any. The law exists, I presume, because enough shop owners complained. If they see a person selling them outside of their shop, they are going to call the police. I doubt they care if they are losing business to a black or white person. This is not racist. Alternatively, the powers that be wanted to specifically target crimes committed predominantly by black people, loose cigarettes was identified, so they made it illegal. This is racist. This is also far less likely. It reminds me o
  12. This is interesting, I'd like to learn more, do you have a link you can provide? I searched and found this article which is fairly recent and studied the Great Migration and racial segregation in cities. A section is as follows https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7297198/ This implies that little is actually known, but in general those in the 1st generation of the migration fared better than those already there.
  13. I agree that those who migrated left their parents and cousins, but I doubt they left their spouses and kids. So they either took their families and started them at their destination. The Great Migration is considered to have ended in the 70s, pretty close to the 60s. So why did they abandon their desire for family integrity when they left? Regarding the ghetto: those areas didn't start as ghettos, they started as the black part of town. Large cities, particularly those older ones in the northeast, to this day have the Irish part of town, the Italian, the Jewish, etc. So something
