Charlottesville not only took down a statute of Generals Lee and Jackson, but also Lewis and Clark and Sacagawea.

Resets always erase the current accepted history.





The wish not to believe can influence as strongly as the wish to believe.

I'm not sure if it's the weather or karma, but one of them has to be racist.

Well since the white devils have those weather control machines, or is it the Jews I forget. Doesn't matter since Jews are white, oh wait they were actually black and white people stole Judaism from them.... Anyway, since the genetically inherent racist people have weather control machines, which they no doubt stole from a black inventor, you bet lightning is racist. 

And don't forget, Zeus is a white guy.

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.
Quote
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

No longer a memorial, rock removed from campus

Here is one that I am a bit shocked is still in circulation given today's popular attitudes.  I remember seeing them in the '80's.  I figured they were long gone.  Lots of racial jokes of all kinds about any group you can think of.  Surprised they are on Amazon.

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.

That makes about as much as sense as the notion that all caps indicates screaming or anger. In other words, none. People are stupid.

I'M WHISPERING IN ALL CAPS RIGHT NOW.

Vaccine mandates

Quote
Chivona Newsome, the other co-founder of BLM NYC, targeted Mayor Bill de Blasio’s vaccine mandate more specifically in her remarks. She implied that the edict has resulted in repeats of historical episodes when blacks were disenfranchised from society.



“Seventy-two percent of black people in this city from ages 18 to 44 are unvaccinated. So what is going to stop the Gestapo, I mean the NYPD, from rounding up black people, from snatching them off the train, off the bus?” she added.

Othello

Quote
    The Professor, a renowned composer who survived the Cultural Revolution, showed his class at @UMich a video of Laurence Olivier playing Othello. Now he’s being investigated, vilified, & shamed for subjecting students to blackface. He apologized, but that only made things worse. https://t.co/0GrTcLT5f8

Welcome to the American Cultural Revolution

Quote
    One colleague has accused Sheng of “pedagogical racism and abuse”—and she has alerted the MacArthur Foundation and Pulitzer Committee about his behavior. Imagine having a colleague like that. https://t.co/k8wR3wPT8M

Halloween

Quote
    EXCLUSIVE: A Seattle elementary school canceled Halloween over "equity" concerns.

    The district claims that black male students don't celebrate Halloween–it marginalizes them.

    Instead, the school will provide "thematic units of study about the fall." https://t.co/lfHNIqaZMJ

    — Jason Rantz on KTTH Radio (@jasonrantz) October 13, 2021
Quote
“Historically, the Pumpkin Parade marginalizes students of color who do not celebrate the holiday,” the spokesperson claimed. “Specifically, these students have requested to be isolated on campus while the event took place. In alliance with SPS’s unwavering commitment to students of color, specifically African American males, the staff is committed to supplanting the Pumpkin Parade with more inclusive and educational opportunities during the school day.”
