If I recall correctly, slaves were often fed lobster. I demand lobster reparations.

And bacon.

Meh, nothing new there, other than maybe evolving from "redneck white" to just "white".

I know but the full bore woke language used got my attention. A bit more over the top than usual

Prisoners in Massachusetts in Colonial America could be served lobster no more than twice a week.  More than that was considered cruel punishment.  The natives just chucked the lobsters into their planting rows for use as fertilizer.

The 2021 Edward S. and Melinda Sadar Lecture in Writing in the Disciplines will host Vershawn Ashanti Young, past chair of Conference on College Communication and Composition (2018 to 2021) for a talk titled “Say They Name in Black English: George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Atatiana Jefferson, Aura Rosser, Trayvon Martin and the Need to Move from College Writing Instruction and Toward Black Linguistic Arts.”

His address will argue that the exclusive focus on writing and standard language ideology in First Year Composition replicates and fosters state-sanctioned violence against Black peoples

I thought they were already doing that?  I am sure there are plenty of rich leftists to fund them.

Add automatic soap dispensers to the list

Quote
You know, the contraptions in public restrooms all across the fruited plain that magically emit gobs of liquid soap soon after you place your hands underneath them?

Anyway, Israel said one student said the dispensers "don't see her hands" because of her skin's dark pigment.
Quote
Oh, but it gets better. He added that another student said the dispensers force "black and brown bodies" to show their palms — which are "the only light areas of the skin" — before the soap will come out.

Woke students at prestigious college reportedly complain that automatic soap dispensers are racist
https://www.theblaze.com/news/woke-students-automatic-soap-dispensers-racist

Students claim soap dispensers are proof of systemic racism. Here’s my rebuttal

I never knew I was black. Those things take forever work for me.
I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you also were meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought

Add banning menthol cigarettes

Quote
Karin Brulliard
@karinbrulliard
SCOOP: The Biden administration is expected to announce a plan this week to ban menthol cigarettes, which advocates say are especially harmful for Black communities. Flavored cigars also on hit list. @lauriemcginley2 w/ @bylenasun https://washingtonpost.com/health/2021/04/28/ban-on-menthol-cigarettes/

Quote
Bo Erickson CBS
@BoKnowsNews
New: @ACLU warns Biden admin a menthol cigarette ban will have “serious racial justice implications.” The letter cites Eric Garner, Michael Brown & George Floyd and says ban will “lead to unconstitutional policing” & ‘trigger criminal penalties.”

This article explains that people of color are more exposed to all types of air pollution than whites.

Quote
“It doesn’t matter how poor, it doesn’t matter how wealthy, the racial disparities exist for all African-Americans and other people of color,” said Paul Mohai, a professor of environmental justice at the University of Michigan who was not involved with the study.

 It doesn't explain how or why, and I wondered that since we all breath the same air.  Then it dawned on me, the air is racist too.

Considering the picture in the article is showing a playground within view of a chemical plant/refinery in Port Arthur, TX, it is really just cheaper housing.  Can't really say for sure if the plants are the source or they just live in a heavily populated area with lots of cars and trucks driving around.

Oh, no!

I once watched an episode of Sanford and Son -- and I laughed. Does that make me a racist, or am I only guilty of cultural appropriation?


What's the status of black people of color who laugh at a Mexican comedian?
