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.
They've gone into plaid latey if you catch my drift.

At least the Democrats (read: socialists) will have all the minority groups neatly cataloged when their socialist plans fail and they need a scapegoat.  Socialists always find a minority, or several minorities, to blame when their schemes go gunny sack.
“Don’t be so open-minded that your brains fall out.” - G.K. Chesterton

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

They attacked gun rights in the 90s, and now they've done such a fine job eliminating the pandemic, they want to fight imaginary racism. Next, they should take on the public health menace of government bureaucracies abandoning their intended purpose, so they can promote autocratic, socialist nonsense.

From our Transportation Secretary

Quote
“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.

Add filibuster to the list

"We demand an urgent end to the racial, racist Senate procedural -- this procedural tool," she said. "This tool that blocks us from what we need, what we have to have to survive and to thrive. Blocking us from getting on with the business of protecting the communities that we were elected to serve."

She tried to cram too many woke buzz words in one sentence so it didn't really make sense, but in the context of the interview I'm guessing* she meant:

"instead of this bill women's sports should be given more money and don't forget racism is the root of all evil"

It's really going out on a limb to translate modern victim speak.

If I haven't mentioned it before, they're trying to sustain panic about something that doesn't exist (white supremacy). They need examples, so they just grab random issues, and cram them under the heading of scary white supremacy.

And it works!  =)

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.

The Cut: Fox News and Donald Trump have made blonde hair ‘the color of the right, for whom whiteness has become a hallmark’

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?

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms.

So, does this make all those minority owned BBQ restaurants "racist" as well ??

I finally watched the video.  The video they played essentially said former slaves like eating meat so if you cook meat, you are taking meat away from a person whose ancestors were slaves.   I am trying to make sense of that, but I really can't.  I am going to assume this person who said it is completely ignorant the history of who settled the US and where they came from.  I guess they assume the white folks were all rich aristocrats.

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