What is systemic racism, really?

Original Article

Posted By: Boni, 6/8/2020 5:21:55 PM

Sometimes big political developments arrive in the country like Sandburg’s fog, on little cat feet, silent and unnoticed until they envelop the nation. The emergence of Donald Trump four years ago is an example. Though a loud and clamorous candidate, he seemed to many like a kind of political clown destined for defeat. Establishment politicians believed almost to a person that the “blue wall” of Democratic electoral dominance would hold against this guy. The Midwest would stay solid, and Hillary Clinton would win the presidency.

Comments:

There will be a backlash by those who have remained silent for fear of putting their jobs, their families, their lives in danger - but this silence will not last forever.

What is systemic racism, really? From what I can observe, it's whatever the left say it is, and as such, they can all go to hell.

The author asks a question about a term that doesn't seem to have a clear definition and then goes on to explain how the vagueness allows the "deplorables" to be targeted. Good, so far. Then he ends up with a conclusion pulled from thin air: "Trump's is a failed presidency". Where'd that come from? Illogical. Something left on the editor's floor? Vagueness of a different type!

Once again the Left is projecting. It is the Left that has built systemic racism with affirmative action, welfare, child subsidies and automatic grade advancement. It is the Left, especially the radical black Left, that has built systemic racism targeted at white people. The black political elites have kept fellow blacks down in ghettos that have become shooting galleries. The "blame whitey" canard doesn't have the history of the original systemic racism practiced by the Democrat's KKK prior to the 1960's. Our country has come a long way, obviously too long to keep up the black victim card. The Marxists are using race to guilt white people in assuming the same public humility and debasement the blacks complained about the whites doing pre 1960's. Its the American twist on Mao's Cultural Revolution. I saw the video of that idiot white woman getting on her knees in front of that radical black man. It was disgusting, on the part of both the man and the woman. I'll believe black lives matter when something is done about the thousands slaughtered every year by other blacks.

Something that was eliminated in the 1950s, so has not existed in this country in 605 to 70 years.

What is systemic racism is a myth, a fairy tale and a raging lie. Play the game and participate with the vendors at your peril. They will hate you for playing their game and lying their lie. And, they'd hate you anyway.

Some conservatives have begun speculating the unrest in American cities—even as late as Monday night in Washington, DC, as “protestors” unsuccessfully worked to tear down a statue of Andrew Jackson and set up an autonomous zone across the street from the White House—may in part be an attempt to affect the upcoming presidential election, with the chaos and violence intended to make it as difficult as possible for Donald Trump to win a second term. Lending credence to this idea is the fact that at least one board member of Thousand Currents...

Ross Douthat’s column today centers on the decadence that has befallen the American system of government. Excerpts: It might surprise contemporary Americans that for most of our history, what we call “culture war” debates — arguments about rights, social justice, the moral organization of society — were often settled through democratic deliberation, rather than the kind of ruling the Supreme Court just delivered on gay and transgender civil rights. Congress debated and passed laws. State legislatures did the same. Constitutional amendments were proposed, passed, ratified — and when necessary, repealed.

For decades, the Navy's leading supplier of high-strength steel for submarines provided subpar metal because one of the company's longtime employees falsified lab results — putting sailors at greater risk in the event of collisions or other impacts, federal prosecutors said in court filings Monday. The supplier, Kansas City-based Bradken Inc., paid $10.9 million as part of a deferred prosecution agreement, the Justice Department said.     Corrections*

Democratic New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio’s “contact tracing team” won’t be allowed to ask COVID-19 patients if they attended a George Floyd protest recently, The City reported. The “contact tracing team” is tasked with finding an infected patient’s recent contacts and informing them about their exposure to the virus so they can self-isolate. However, the team is not allowed to ask people if they attended one of the many recent demonstrations where thousands of people gathered closely together to protest the death of George Floyd, The City reported.

As I have watched Confederate monuments being removed by state and local governments, and sometimes by the forceful will of the American people, the fact that 10 U.S. Army installations are named for Confederate officers has weighed on me. That number includes the Army’s largest base, one very special to many in uniform: Fort Bragg, in North Carolina.

lasdair MacIntyre, from After Virtue: But protest is now almost entirely that negative phenomenon which characteristically occurs as a reaction to the alleged invasion of someone’s rights in the name of someone else’s utility. The self-assertive shrillness of protest arises because the facts of incommensurability ensure that protesters can never win an argument; the indignant selfrighteousness of protest arises because the facts of incommensurability ensure equally that the protesters can never lose an argument either.

After a year of speculating whether she was taking advantage of extradition laws in Paris or smuggling In-N-Out burgers in Los Angeles, Ghislaine Maxwell was found hiding out on a 156-acre compound, which she had purchased with cash in the tiny town of Bradford, New Hampshire.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Wednesday blamed Russia’s annexation of Crimea on Republicans, though the invasion took place on President Barack Obama's watch. Pelosi slammed President Donald Trump and Republicans for their alleged inability to face Russian aggression—and tied them to President Barack Obama’s appeasement of Moscow. "You just described, not only for the president, but the Republicans in Congress, dereliction of duty," Pelosi told MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace. "Undermining our own elections, undermining our commitment to NATO, giving away the store, the base, in Syria. The list goes on and on. Ignoring the annexation of Crimea, the invasion of eastern Ukraine. The list goes on and on."

The bug may appear “exclusive” to students who are not White Anglo-Saxon Protestants, or “WASPs.” While a public outcry over racism continues around the nation, the college is already concerned that its two historical namesakes—Methodist Episcopal Church bishop John Emory and founding father Patrick Henry—were slave holders. The school mascot has also come under scrutiny. “Conversations must examine how Emory & Henry’s past has contributed to current and ongoing systemic oppression,” said Dr. John Wells, president of Emory & Henry College, according to the

The governor's office said the order applied to all counties in Texas with 20 or more confirmed cases of COVID-19, saying the move was necessary with other efforts to curb the spread of the disease. "Due to recent substantial increases in COVID-19 positive cases, and increases in the COVID-19 positivity rate and hospitalizations resulting from COVID-19, further measures are needed to achieve the least restrictive means for reducing the growing spread of COVID-19
