Seriously, this could be a damn SNL skit.
White veganism is apparently the new white supremacy because it only focuses on the lives of animals while ignoring colonization and stuff.
Don’t ask us, we just work here.
Watch.

Just when you thought vegans couldn’t get ANY more annoying : White veganism is the new WHITE SUPREMACY and OMG-LOL (watch)

You know what's racist/white supremacist?

Everything I do, say, think, or am.

Not due to any overt action on my part, but because of the proclamations of those members of society who have self-identified as being woke enough to actually pass those judgements.

So, simply by the fact that I exist, but with no actual proof or basis to back up those assertions, I have been lovingly and tolerantly judged and condemned.

Thus, I have literally nothing to lose, which means I have no *expletive deleted*s to give.

I think we should do flush toilets next. Western, ignores the hygiene (lack of) practices of traditional BIPOC cultures, nobody needs three bathrooms except a capitalist oppressor, we pay people who are usually undocumented vacationers to clean them and oh yeah, they are white! Toilets are racist and you heard it here first.

 The defining instrument of white racism is the smart phone. Invented and developed by white men and made with slave labor.
 To combat white racism, one MUST destroy the phone.
 This would cause woke heads to detonate.

 I would bet most of the woke crowd would define their phone as the single most important object they possess.
 By far.

The first part of that (up until you not caring) is functionally equivalent to the ideology of critical racism, oops, critical race theory. They actually do say that white racism is baked in, it's everywhere, and if you're white, you're part of it.

That's supposed to make you feel all guilty and compliant, though, Mike. Bad Mike! Bad!

i seem to recall something on chess along those lines for a while now

After a quick google search

Quote
The notion that somehow the ancient pastime of chess is inherently racist due to the rule of white pieces moving first has been broached on an Australian taxpayer-funded national radio network.

The controversy arose when the national broadcaster ABC proposed a radio slot on the matter Tuesday and sought an interview with John Adams, an economist who represented the Australian Chess Federation in 2015.
Quote
Adams later told a different radio host the argument has been circulating in chess circles for years.

She defines privilege strangely.  Is it a privilege to have band aides that are lighter colored?  Really?  Would I care if they were all brown?  No.  She acts like all "white people" let out a maniacal laugh every time they pull out a band aide since they know it is made for them.

Will they demand that the actual bandage pads and gauze pads be changed to black?

I didn't think teachers were allowed to provide medical treatment in the classroom (or outside of the classroom). That would have been a HUGE no-no back in the stone age when I was making my way through grammar and high school. Any injury that required treatment meant a trip to the school nurse.

Why doesn't she just buy the clear bandages and avoid all the drama about the color of the strip?

https://www.campusreform.org/article?id=17047

I love this line of thinking:

Looking at biological markers that correlate to the things we call "race" is white supremacy.

Also, not thinking that a person's race is the most important thing you can ever know about them is also racist. But you can't tell that person's race from biological (often skeletal) markers, because doing so is racist.

I guess, truly, SKIN COLOR is the only matter of any importance to these race hustlers.

Racism makes black women fat

Quote
Apparently, there’s a show on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network called “Black Women OWN the Conversation,” and from the small sample we’ve witnessed, it might be worse than “The View.” In a recent episode, Brittney Cooper explained why black women don’t lose as much weight on the same diets as white women, and the theory is that the racism that black women experience — the struggle — makes the diets not work for them. We’re not members of the party of science, so we’re not going to judge.

I'm thinking of starting an all-male singing group called The White Supremes.

I'd change the arrangement of the other Supreme's songs to attract a different audience and I think this would bring us together as a nation.

We would finally be healed of our differences.

Peace and calm would be our default status both as groups and individuals.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around the objection.  Is the problem identifying any race at all is racist?  Is anthropology inherently racist?  Is the concept of race racist?

Since I've adopted tribalism as a world view this stuff doesn't really bother me.

I expect folks to support and advocate for that which advances their "tribe".

If gays and trannies are pushing their agenda I understand. If Blacks or other races are pushing agendas that help them at the expense of others, I get it. If Asians, Jews, Indians etc. have "in group" networks that promote their people over others, I know that is the way of the world. 

You may not care for tribalism but at least know this, the other tribes really don't care for you and will kick you to the curb if they can.

Someone (Larry Elder?) has said, the demand for racism far exceeds the supply. Of course, that was before our Black Supremacist Summer, and he was talking about the racism (such as it was) of whites toward non-whites.

These days, strictly speaking, that pithy observation is no longer true. The supply of anti-white racism is at least equal to the demand. Yet, to sustain anti-white hatred, the elites must continue to supply evidence of the white supremacy at the center of their narrative. In other words, they have to keep making things up. There is no white supremacist structure in the U.S., nor even a credible attempt to impose one, so "white supremacy" must be found in every passing cloud, and under the bed, and all the other places where it isn't.

Some ethnicities are a better fit or naturally assimilate.

There used to be at least some pressure to assimilate to American culture and political ideology.

Not any longer.

We also have ideological tribes, but ideology can be a bit more fragile than ethnicity.

I agree with most of that, differing only in that I'd say some cultures are a better fit or naturally assimilate.

It's certainly true that immigrants should understand the pressure is on them to fit into our culture; not on us to accommodate all of their cultural traits or expectations. Of course, when our leadership seem bent on demolishing America's historic culture and politics...

Our major political and public institutions have been subverted and are now the actual source of tribal/racial/ethnic/ideological strife.

I guess what I was trying to say earlier is I'm not taking it personally that the coalition of the minorities is ganging up on the majority population of "whites" and normies. They are rationally using the system to further their perceived best interests.

Remember the phrase that was bandied about some years ago?

"Don't hate the player, hate the game"

That's where I'm at, I'm not hating on the players but the game. The game, the system, is evil and needs to be overturned. The game is actually corrupting the players, on both  sides.

Meanwhile, as much as is possible, I'm not playing the game.

"There's a good chance you pictured letters made from the swingy, wedge-shaped strokes you've seen on restaurant signs, menus, take-away boxes and kung-fu movie posters. These ‘chop suey fonts,’ as American historian Paul Shaw calls them, have been a typographical shortcut for ‘Asianness’ for decades," reporter Anne Quito wrote.

I wonder if that's the case because they work to accomplish the purpose of conveying the idea of "Asianness."

"It's hard not to cringe at the Chinese stereotypes bundled up with each font package -- especially when seen through the lens of today's heightened vigilance toward discrimination and systemic racism. Critics believe that using chop suey typefaces is downright racist, particularly when deployed by non-Asian creators," she wrote before struggling to find examples of White politicians using the fonts.

Right. I, for one, would much prefer to see Chinese food in the ethnic aisle at the supermarket labeled using a Victorian or Olde English Gothic font. It would make my food shopping much easier, and it would be ever so much less racist.

Pushing racial strife and sexual confusion on the public keeps the public from looking at the real source of societal misery, the power/money guys behind the curtain.

If the public gets bored with the above strife and confusion the "masters of the universe" can always start a pandemic or war.

"Masters of the universe" is tongue in cheek. They are small corrupt humans, money grubbing, power hungry liars.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is declaring racism to be a “serious threat” to public health.

The CDC made the announcement this week, saying that racism “negatively affects the mental and physical health of millions of people” and “consequently, affecting the health of our nation.” The CDC director also said that minorities experience higher rates of illness and death across a wide range of health conditions and cited the covid-19 pandemic and its disproportionate impact among minorities as another stark example of these enduring health disparities.

They're correct. I am sick and tired of reading about all this racism, especially when the alleged anti-racism diatribes are inherently racist themselves. From where I sit, this country has become more racist in the past six months than it has been for at least 20 years. I would definitely say that I have been affected negatively.

The current trend of everything is racist actually started with the election of Obama. If you didn't vote for Obama or opposed anything he said or did it could only be because of racism. That mindset was then applied to everything and has been gaining speed ever since.

“There is racism physically built into some of our highways, and that’s why the jobs plan has specifically committed to reconnect some of the communities that were divided by these dollars,” the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor told reporter April Ryan this week in an interview discussing President Joe Biden’s proposed $2 trillion infrastructure plan.

Buttigieg explained that several major highways in the United States negatively affect minority communities.

Blonde hair

Quote
Fox News and Donald Trump have given blonde hair a new chapter: Now, blonde is the color of the right, for whom whiteness has become a hallmark. Over the past decade or so, as inclusiveness became the hallmark of Obama-era liberals, the left found feminist icons in Rachel Maddow, Samantha Power, and Michelle Obama, who make no apologies for their failure to fit traditional ideals. But #MAGA, Fox News America is a place where all the classic signifiers of privilege and wealth work on overdrive: country-club-issue blue blazers with brass buttons and khaki pants, and above all else, for women, that yellow-blonde, carefully tended hair — a dog whistle of whiteness, an unspoken declaration of values, a wink-wink to the power of racial privilege and to the 1980s vibe that pervades a movement led by a man who still believes in the guilt of the Central Park Five.

In an effort to learn how racist blonde hair was, I Googled "cnn anchors and reporters".  The page pops up with pictures/links of all of them in a banner across the top (strangely, most seem to be blonde).  Not merely images, that's further down the page, these are links to searches of the individual reporters.  If you do the same search for "fox anchors and reporters" or "fox news anchors and reporters"  there is no such banner.  Is this proof that Fox News is so racist that they have infiltrated Google and skewed the search results against themselves?

Being a Christian and they throw in a good dose of TDS

Quote
The election of Donald Trump intensified certain strains of Christian nationalism. He fanned fears of pluralism with Islamophobic and anti-immigrant rhetoric. He often invoked Christianity, albeit in terms that were largely about ethnic identity rather than faith. “The greatest ethnic dog whistle the right has ever come up with is ‘Christian,’ because it means ‘people like us,’ it means white,” Samuel Perry, a sociologist at the University of Oklahoma and co-author of “Taking America Back For God,” told me.

White Vietnam vets, white POWs, Rambo, and Trump

Quote
Another potent channel of this emerging dynamic of white blamelessness was the Prisoner of War/Missing in Action movement, which also managed to transmute a cross-racial vets’ issue into a politics of white grievance…. “The whiteness of the Operation Homecoming vets, the most visible and distinguished former prisoners of war, made the POW/MIA movement a vehicle for white racial grievance,” Darda writes, “and the POW/MIA flag has been a common sight at white supremacist rallies ever since. When a 1985 Newsweek headline declared ‘We’re Still Prisoners of War,’ some readers, whether conscious of it or not, would have taken that ‘we’ to mean white America.”

First problem is the POW/MIA flag is also prominent at many post offices and military installations.

Beyond that though I find the thing idiotic. We have no living POWs. We do good finding skeletal remains of MIA. Why it is a political movement at all mystifies me. Not the racial aspect but I could buy the idea it was the product of a generation trying to be noticed and affirmed. I guess they won't call my old ass up but if I am ever MIA don't put up a stupid flag for me, the prospect is baked into the deal when you sign up. The sentiment behind the flag leads to things like pulling out of Somalia after getting a bloody nose instead of the proper response of razing everything to be remembered for centuries and then promptly leaving.

If I'd freaked out, like some of the folks, I could be sitting at home on unemployment-plus, which would pretty much equal an assistant manager's pay rate. And is more than our starting pay rate.
 
They've been paying a bonus about once a quarter, which is about equal to a week's worth of the "plus."
 
Probably too late to freak out. I missed 10 days due to having something that tested negative (but had 101-102 fever for most of it), and one day since then. I had a week and a half of vacation go bye-bye, because it is use it or lose it, and we couldn't get anyone to cover. Some guys lost a lot more.

If it's use it or lose it, you take it whether anyone is there to cover or not.  If management doesn't hire enough people that's their problem not yours.  Otherwise they have an incentive to understaff just so they can steal your vacation. (as if they don't have enough incentive already)

They take your vacation and you get to hope they might like your acquiescence so much they reward it.

Thanks to the 'rona reaction, we're severely understaffed.

As a test, ask them if they will buy back your vacation since you're too understaffed to take any days off.  If they are honest, they should be happy to do that. 

I don't know if any of this is actionable through the state Dept of Labor, especially since you're in management, but it will let you know what kind of people you are dealing with.

Good luck.

^^^I have been blessed with good health all my life and consequently take very little in the way of sick leave.  As with most healthcare systems nowadays, a few years back, my employer went to paid time off such that you use your hours for vacation or sick leave as you see fit and any unused hours were paid off at the time of separating from employment.  They now have a cap in the number of unused PTO hours that are paid off.  Some employees with long service were cashing in hundreds of hours and some of the smaller facilities were running into cash flow issues.

Post by: RoadKingLarry on June 01, 2021, 10:39:41 AM
Every large corporation I ever worked for had some kind of vacation clause to buy back vacation if for business needs you couldn't take it. Vacation time is an agreed upon component of your compensation package. If your company denies your vacation without compensation they are essentially stealing X numbers of days pay from you.
Dig into your corporate policies and look into the vacation issue.
Do you really want to work for a company that will routinely *expletive deleted*ck over their employees over vacation? If they will do that they will find ever more profitable ways to *expletive deleted*ck you.
Might also look into your states labor laws, it may be an actionable offense in your state.

^^^The stated rationale for capping either the number of unused PTO hours paid off, or capping accumulation at a certain number of hours is to encourage the employee to use PTO.  Sort of a 'use it or lose it' philosophy.  That would be different than not being able to use PTO due to business demands, and I think someone should not be penalized for that.

The employer should be penalized for not having enough people; and it's really not that much of a penalty having to buy back the unusable PTO.  Its cheaper than paying the overhead costs on another employee.  Versus a severe penalty (lost wages) pushed down to the employee for no fault of his own.

No. 3: Meat is a symbol of white-male privilege

According to Carol Adams, a feminist-vegan advocate and author of the book The Sexual Politics of Meat, the myth that you need meat for strength is “traceable to this intersection of colonialism, white supremacy, and masculinity.”

Historically, Adams says red meat was a luxury reserved for aristocrats, who, at the turn of the 19th century, were largely male and white. The bourgeois didn’t hunt or raise the cattle they ate; servants and peasants did all the physical work, though they themselves couldn’t afford to eat meat on a regular basis.

Regardless, Europeans upheld the concept that meat equals strength, masculinity, and ultimately, superiority. Adams notes that the English bragged about how they were able to colonize India because their soldiers ate red meat unlike the native men. She also mentions that in World War II, the US and UK rationed meat at home so that soldiers on the front lines would have more fuel for the fight. The governments also launched a victory-garden initiative using propaganda that featured only women planting and harvesting vegetables.

People think beef is manly, and that’s a big problem

Quote
The book explores the existence of white supremacy and cultural appropriation in American yoga. “I would venture to say that everything in our collective society is rooted in white supremacy. I am sure there are many people who would disagree with that, and honestly I don’t care because I believe that and I know it’s the case,” she says.

“I think that we see it show up in a lot of different ways. In the same way it’s everywhere else and it has polluted everything else, it’s polluted yoga. It’s very much a part of how yoga has spread in America. The popularity of yoga really came down to wealthy white people wanting to learn and explore in a very specific way, and that’s why yoga has been so white for so long in America.”

Detailing the cultural appropriation in yoga, Stanley says it’s “rampant because we are still living in the legacy of colonization.”

Reporting a rape.

Quote
A lawyer today accused Oxfam of suggesting reporting rape is 'contemptible' after a training document said 'privileged white women' were supporting the 'root causes of sexual violence' for wanting offenders jailed because it disproportionately affects minorities.

The charity, which has been hit by a slew of sex scandals including claims that employees used teenage prostitutes in Haiti, compiled the PowerPoint presentation through its LGBT network after the group complained to bosses that the debate about women's rights was part of a 'patriarchal and white supremacist narrative'. 

Accompanied by a cartoon of a crying white woman, the PowerPoint claims that mainstream feminism supports 'the root causes of sexual violence' by painting white women as 'victims' and that this in turn justifies excessive punishment for 'black and other marginalised people'.

To be fair, she's using it as an analogy, not actually talking about wi-fi. Though if you took that analogy and actually applied critical race theory, white people are paying double for stuff (i.e., taxes) so POC can get free stuff.

That's of course a generalization. It's more fair to say that working people pay double so welfare slackers can get free stuff, and welfare slackers come in all colors. But if you apply CRT, then you would have to say whites are paying more, not working people are paying more.

Regarding the above:

Quote
In a response to LeFevre and Lipson, the Seattle Human Rights Commission – which describes itself as "22 representative residents of Seattle appointed to serve in an advisory capacity to the Mayor, City Council, Seattle Office for Civil Rights, and other Seattle City departments" – said "the unique nature of your situation does not in fact violate any of your human rights as stated in the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights, which is the charter by which our Commission operates."

Aren't they just saying that the UN is racist? I'd actually be curious about what the official response (not that they'd give one) from the UN would be? I'm pretty sure even the really socialist countries in the world aren't as whackadoodle as the US is regarding this racism against whites stuff.

What's racist now?

Well, according to the latest salvo from some idiot in my community who thinks that she's a historian, the history commission I used to serve on, the committee that oversees historic markers (that I used to sit on), and the text of a particular marker that I helped craft an approve.

She's made those claims to our county's Board of Supervisors.

Old hat, though, as she's been claiming we're racist for years.

Only now that I'm no longer on the history commission, I wrote a VERY strongly worded rebuttal to our Board of Supervisors calling her out on her crap.

Well, for years she's been screaming about the supposed lack of accuracy in activities by the History Commission. She claims to have all of this information disproving various projects... every time she's asked to present her primary source evidence that backs up her claims, she won't, most likely because she can't.

Her latest crusade is regarding the text on a historic marker in the county. She claims that it's both incorrect AND part of a racist agenda by the history commission. Again, she claims to have proof that the marker text is wrong, citing two descendants of the individual cited on the marker (it marked the location of a home). Once again, however, absolutely ZERO primary source material that can back up her claims.

She knows the requirements for verification of the text that goes into a county marker, yet she refuses to accept that it applies to her. When she doesn't get her way she starts papering the county supervisors and local newspapers in incendiary accusations.

Now that I'm no longer on the history commission I felt that it was time to speak out to the county supervisors. I sent a very strongly worded letter to the supervisors defending the History Commission's activities and processes and pretty much called her a reckless liar, slanderer (she very publicly accused two very respected members of the Commission of racism and promoting a racist agenda) and basically an insane woman.

For your reading pleasure, my letter to the board of supervisors...


"Dear Chairman McKay:

Over the past few days I have been reading, with great interest and growing anger, a series of e-mails from Ms. Corazon Foley regarding, among other things, the Huldah Coffer House Marker in Burke.

I served as the Providence District representative to the Fairfax County History Commission for approximately 15 (2005-2021) years. For part of that time I was a member of the Markers Committee, which was led by Jack Hiller, who laid out many of the guidelines for the scholarship required to establish provenance for the text on Fairfax County markers. I was part of the committee that vetted the Coffer research, done by noted historical researcher Debbie Robison, that resulted in the text on that marker.

The Coffer marker’s text, as with the text on ALL Fairfax County History Commission markers, is based on verifiable documentary evidence that was uncovered during Ms. Robison’s research processes. The standards to be met for the text for any marker are listed in section III of the History Commission’s Historical Marker Guidelines (https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/history-commission/sites/history-commission/files/assets/documents/historicalroadsidemarkers/fairfax_county_marker_guidelines_071116.pdf).

When she began her campaign against the text on the Huldah Coffer house marker Ms. Foley was asked to produce primary source documentary evidence to bolster the claims she has made – to date she has not done so, but continues to press her case for using oral/family history from modern-day descendants of the Coffer family. Oral histories are valuable tool for any researcher but, unless claims made in an oral history can be backed up with primary source materials, they can only be viewed as an individual’s (potentially faulty) memories or their recounting of stories (also potentially faulty) that have been passed down through the family.

I also take exceptional umbrage to Ms. Foley’s veiled insinuation that the marker’s text is essentially driven by a racist agenda. Ms. Foley has a long history of crying racism when asked to provide primary source documentary references to back claims that she has made or when she feels that her claims are not being given sufficient attention. Several years ago, she publicly accused a sitting member of the History Commission of racism. Her claims were found to be baseless, but to date she has not even as much as apologized for slandering that individual. This is but the tip of this iceberg. There is much more to the saga of Ms. Foley’s recurring accusations against the History Commission and its members, both past and present, but they are outside of the scope of her current claims.

Serving on the Fairfax County History Commission is one of the proudest accomplishments of my life and I refuse to stand idly by while an individual with a long-standing grudge levies such baseless accusations and impugns the reputations of the individuals with whom I was privileged to serve. Thank you for allowing me to share my side of this sorry story.

With appreciation for your time and attention"

In my experience, many of the biggest (most polluting) fireworks displays are in the wealthy communities that can afford the fancy displays. Also, here in rural white Idaho, the neighbors have been shooting off fireworks for days now. I demand government issued air filtration.

Large dark rocks

Quote
The University of Wisconsin–Madison moved the former Chamberlin Rock, an object that had become a painful symbol of racism to generations of students, to a site off the main campus on August 6.

The rock had sat at the crest of Observatory Hill since 1925. That same year, it was referred to in a newspaper headline by a deeply offensive nickname that included a racial slur. The derogatory nickname was commonly used at the time to refer to any large, dark rock.

UW–Madison historians have not found evidence that the racist term attached to the rock in the 1925 newspaper article was used in any capacity by the university

Karens

Quote
    Likewise, today’s Karen contains multitudes. Her bias isn’t necessarily overt; she may believe she doesn’t have any. She’s the liberal white girlfriend perfectly at ease dissing the cop who asks her Black boyfriend for I.D., counting on her whiteness to prevent violence, and simultaneously a psychopath who sees Black people as mere vehicles for white self-actualization, as in Jordan Peele’s 2017 film, “Get Out.” She’s bipartisan, at once the conservative TV show host Megyn Kelly, waxing nostalgic in 2018 for a time when blackface was “OK,” and the progressive senator Elizabeth Warren, who, as a law professor in the 1980s and 1990s, identified herself as Native American (and was accorded minority status) based solely on family folklore about a distant ancestor at least six generations removed.

    Widen the lens and any white woman — every white woman — could be a Karen, if she’s perceived as taking for granted the advantages bestowed by her skin color and ignoring the labor and suffering of others.

It is all about her and everyone should pay attention.............Also she was failing inorganic chemistry and was avoiding the test (more than likely). 

I think of lot of this is just professional liars who learn how to speak that language to get away with stuff.

I'm of the opinion that this was another "diversity" quota admittance person who wasn't even remotely qualified to be in a Harvard (or any other) pre-med program, and the inorganic chemistry exam simple caused it's brain to freeze.

When I was in college, the pre-med students weren't worried about INorganic chemistry -- it was organic chemistry that was the soul killer.

Were I in a hiring position, I'd be inclined these days to reject anyone with "Harvard" or other Ivy league schools on their resume. Seems like they are a problem waiting to happen. They would really need to wow me in an interview, and I would make sure to have some questions that might help out the SJW snowflakes.

Which is really interesting, given that President Brandon was begging the brown people to pump more oil because he's waging a war against domestic production.

Yet nary a peep about how racist that is.

I wish I had been a major oil exec and she made that statement to me. I'd have just started laughing at her and ask if the company should stop selling its violence liquid to black and brown communities to protect them?

I generally hate these hearings, because people from both sides of the aisle will use them to grandstand, and their outraged pontifications are just the epitome of overacting. Donalds was clear, composed, logical, and smart. Personally, I think that does a lot more damage to the other side than grandstanding and table pounding.

I don't remember what the "tiki torch" origin is, but it is apparently white supremacist. Also, apparently Virginia dem operatives and the Lincoln Project faked a tiki-torch demonstration at a Youngkin event to "link" him to racists. Sadly for them, they were discovered. Then the usual suspects continued to spread the fake news, with the fake story being spread a bajillion times, vs the dozen or so times the correction has been passed on.

I guess it's just as well to put this here vs starting a new thread.

The Salvation Army has gone woke for their biggest donation period of the year, which I suspect will now be much smaller. They have put out a new "racism guide". It's apparently aimed at the SA itself, versus the people who donate to them, but you would think they would have learned a lesson from the big corporations who do this, demanding their white employees apologize for being white. Once it gets out they do this internally, a lot of people will be turned off by the organization, and I would submit that the vast majority of dollars dropped in the holiday kettles come from white bread white people. Progressive white people hate the SA, and I think the minority contributions are a pretty small percentage.

I used to write a big check to the SA every Thanksgiving (actually credit card on their website), but haven't done so for a few years now because I already didn't like how they seemed to have started concentrating the general donation funds to substance abuse. Not to be callous, but I prefer my charity money go to people who are in dire straights through no fault of their own. I have still been dropping C-notes in the local kettles during the holidays, but I think I'm going to cut that off too.

I've already been switching my contributions to local charities, and I think now I will be doing that 100%. I can choose organizations for which I can get on the ground data, and know the funds are going to good deeds by people who don't cave to loudmouths on social media.

It's too bad. I have always liked that the SA used their money much more efficiently than organizations like the Red Cross, who spend half their donations on donor parties.

( ^ Heh, heh.  Maybe you should have started a new thread.  A possibly hot-button, triggering, subject.)

Quite a while ago, after being disgusted with the abuses of most of the large charities, I adopted a policy of finding my own (local) needy folks and contributing to my church with instructions to the Deacon to advance that amount to the folks I had found on my own.  This had the dual benefit of maintaining my anonymity and "making points" for the Church.

The one exception to this was at work where the United Fund campaign was guilting everybody into 100% departmental contributions, and I found among the listed United Fund charities one I felt was "reliable" so I could designate them as the recipient.

So I'd throw in a couple of bucks with that designation to satisfy the 100% departmental United Fund bullshit.

Nowadays I severely limit any contributions, especially to foreign charities.  This, on the theory that they should solve their own damned problems; we have our own damned problems to worry about.

Gettin' a little tougher about charities in my old age and dotage, I am, I am.

When I was new to the company, I let them bully me into giving $5 to the United Way campaign so they could claim 100% participation.  And I hated myself afterwards for allowing myself to be taken advantage of like that.  (the company wanted us to put-up the money so they could claim they donated it; I assume not for tax purposes but for PR)  I never donated to United Way again.

This is eerily similar to my experience when I first joined the workforce.

Designating your donation to go to a specific UW charity doesn't mean much. If UW was going to give Charity A $100, and you designated your $10 donation to go to A  . . . . well, YOUR money will go there, but they'll shift $10 of the original $100 somewhere else. So A gets the same $100 planned before you donated your money.

Sad to hear the Salvation Army is going woke. My Dad and two uncles on my Mom's side of the family - all WW2 vets - all had good things to say about the SA. On the flip side, all three of them had difficulty talking about the Red Cross without a lot of profanity.

Reminds me of when the local rag still had a website where people could debate one another and the paper's editorial writers. One weekend the topic was how to save money in local schools - I wrote a short note the gist of which was concentrate on academics - and start by firing every employee who had the word "diversity" as part of their job title or job description. To the horror of staffers, this opinion gained several times more support than the contrary opinion, which was that we needed more diversity pros.

Because of this and many, many other instances where the readership and editorial staff parted ways, the paper discontinued their forums.

The very same thing happened with The Rocky Mountin News in Denver maybe 15 years ago. I guess the publishers forgot that while there is a Freedom of the press, there's also a freedom of the public.

I remember back in New York every once in a while the New York Daily News would  have a letter to the editor that either started or ended with "I'll bet you don't publish this."

I always thought that was funny and I wondered how many "I'll bet you don't publish this" letters they actually got.

Farmer's markets and food charities

Quote
She took particular aim at farmers markets as being too white. She uses a quote from Rachel Slocum (“a preeminent researcher on whiteness and food”) as a jumping-off point.

“What that does is it erases the past and present of race and agriculture. What whiteness also does is ‘mobilizes funding to predominantly white organizations who then direct programming at nonwhite beneficiaries,’” she said. “And we’ll talk about that a little bit more when we talk about communities that can’t take care of themselves. Also, what this does is it creates inviting spaces for white people. Then program directors or farmers market directors are scrambling because they’re trying to add diversity to a white space. So what whiteness does is center whiteness.”

When you think about it, it's kind of funny that the yellow ones didn't become racist until after the SJWs started demanding other colors. Having been around since "emojis" were simply ":)", as best as I can recall, yellow was the first color and the only one available for a long, long while.

Wow!

So a POC claims that music theory is White supremacy, a professor of music theory puts out an academic journal in which some articles support the White supremacist view while others rebut it (sounds like a healthy intellectual exercise to me) ... so the school

... and then, when he sues, claims his assertions are "baseless" and that the university didn't take any adverse action against him.

"The defendants have formally notified the court of appeals that we are appealing the district court’s decision to deny our motion to dismiss," a spokesperson for the school said. "Dr. Jackson’s faculty colleagues have not harmed him in any way, and federal court is not the place to try the plaintiff’s baseless allegations against them. Further, neither the Board of Regents nor the university have taken any adverse action against Dr. Jackson."
So they have taken action against him, but not any adverse action.  Sounds like they are saying they have done stuff aimed at him, but none of it actually hurt him so please dismiss the suit.

Well, my point was that, as I read the definition, the university's actions very much were "adverse" to the professor. Doing things that meet the definition in multiple ways while claiming the opposite hopefully won't get them far in court.

And now physical fitness

Quote
The intersection of extremism and fitness leans into a shared obsession with the male body, training, masculinity, testosterone, strength and competition. Physical fitness training, especially in combat sports, appeals to the far right for many reasons: fighters are trained to accept significant physical pain, to be “warriors,” and to embrace messaging around solidarity, heroism, and brotherhood. It’s championed as a tool to help fight the “coming race war” and the street battles that will precede it. Recruits are encouraged to link individual moral virtues such as willpower, decisiveness and courage, with desired collective traits such as virility and manliness. This also works in reverse, with white supremacists encouraging potential recruits or activists to stay in good physical shape as a way of managing self-presentation to the public. The neo-Nazi blogger Andrew Anglin advised his followers that “fat people” should be required to commit to losing weight if they are to stay involved with groups or in-person gatherings, noting that “continued obesity should not be tolerated.”
Quote
Physical fitness has always been central to the far right. In “Mein Kampf,” Hitler fixated on boxing and jujitsu, believing they could help him create an army of millions whose aggressive spirit and impeccably trained bodies, combined with “fanatical love of the fatherland,” would do more for the German nation than any “mediocre” tactical weapons training.

Earlier than that - my Dad told me during WW2 basic training they had an unarmed combat instructor who was well versed in karate, so that was in the early '40s. (Don't know how they represented it since there was still a prevailing mindset that the Japs were all sneaky nearsighted idiots with buck teeth. Combat changed a lot of minds in a hurry.)

Theodore Roosevelt practiced jiu jitsu. And he was not the first one. There was also bartitsu, a mixed martial arts system developed by a  Englishman named  E.W. Barton-Wright, that combined judo, boxing, canne de combat, savate and Swiss wrestling. This was in 1898. But the real popularity began with returning servicemen after WW2, and it really picked up in the 60s and 70s.

No surprise. Late to the game, but I've been poking around Reddit of late, and their "moderators" don't appear to be any better than the Twitter nitwits.

As an example, I went to the Reddit thread on "Resident Alien" to see if others, like me, were feeling that Season 2 went woke. I read posts from one of their moderators or reditors or whatever they're called boasting / complaining about the work involved banning something like "50 bigots in the past week" who had complained about one of the episodes being over the top woke.

"Free speech" as long as it aligns with the woke jerks that work at Reddit.

Any Star Wars fan that doesn't like the new Obi-Wan Kenobi series
You must like it because one of the main characters is a black woman, if not consider yourself racist.
Apparently she was making this claim even before the 1st episode aired

Yeah that's why Star Wars lost all it's fans after Lando showed up in Empire. That was the last movie or show, right?

And hot on the heels of the Heard/Depp verdict being racist
The Pirates of the Caribbean movies since they didn't address slavery are racist

If you need another reason to hate Johnny Depp, his ‘Pirates’ movies are ‘DEEPLY racially problematic’

If white people are afraid of black people, it's because white people are racist.

If black people are afraid of white people, it's because white people are racist.

Nature is racist now

Quote
While this may be a relatively new phenomenon within the modern far-right, white supremacy has deep roots in the U.S. wilderness and recreation movement, which long excluded people of color from its national parks and green spaces. And that history has made America’s national parks attractive destinations for white-rights activists trying to stake their claim to the land.

Don't recall ever seeing Whites Only signs in national parks

Heh. "White rights." Believing whites have any rights is racist, I guess.

It must be way up North where the wolves and bears all have white fur.  It is why they hunt the seals that show up as they aren't white.   =)

A group of very wealthy and empowered Black women enjoying a feast while gathered around a sumptuous banquet table venting about how oppressed they are . . .

Reality has outstripped the ability of satire sites like The Onion or The Babylon Bee to lampoon this absurdity.  :facepalm:
