Black Sleep Matters

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 2/20/2021 4:31:58 AM

Teen Vogue magazine recently published an article by two writers who are calling for “rest reparations” in addition to the regular, old, garden-variety reparations for African Americans (snip) Navild Acosta and Fannie Sosa contend that, on average, Black lives are shorter than white ones because Black people experience “generational fatigue” due solely to the fact that they are, in fact, Black. The two allege that “the American dream is a sleepless one” for Black folks, and claim to have had an epiphany when they realized the reason they were always tired was because they were impacted by "hundreds of years of sleep deprivation" that was due to systemic racism.

Try counting black sheep when trying to go to sleep. Or a good shot of Johnnie Walker Black.

So, how to explain the tons of black people that have successful and productive lives?

Any outrageous train of thought from the black community is being accepted as truth. This is insane. Millions of successful black Americans know the secret to success. The country gives us ample opportunities to better ourselves regardless of race, religion or ethnicity. All we have to do is want it and work toward success and it can be ours. Wallowing in victimization will not produce success. It will only produce resentment and frustration. Many people will not put the effort to better themselves regardless of their race, religion or ethnicity. The ones who do will be successful and each generation builds on that success. We all benefit when our neighbors are successful. The community improves. Our relationships improve because we all are working toward a similar goal. It is about the content of your character and not about the color of your skin. Any race will be welcomed into a community if there are shared values. Our country is proof of that. Reject the lie of liberal thinking that some races are out to get other races. Not true. We just want to live in communities that are safe, prosperous, and show respect for themselves and others, and love for this country. It’s not about race. Dr. Martin Luther King was right. People with the same values will come together regardless of their race. The prosperity that was growing in minority communities under President Trump should have been championed by both political parties. It was a natural point of coming together for the benefit of all Americans. Democrats could not have that. They would rather sentence our minority communities to failure rather than join the President in lifting them out of the cycle of poverty that they were trapped in by years of failing policies. President Trump was betting on the success of minorities while the democrats wanted only to sentence them to the victimhood mentality they had created for their political benefit. This is the legacy of the democrat party.

Two prime examples of this warning. "The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read or write, but those who cannot unlearn the many lies that they have been conditioned to believe, and not seek out the hidden knowledge that they have been conditioned to reject.” - Gavin Nascimento, 1928

This has got to be the dumbest article I've seen in weeks. This is right up there with the one about sharks in the ocean waters eating or desiring black meat tossed in the water off slave ships. These lazy people can really come up with some real doozy excuses. These two authors must have to explain to someone why they are so lazy and stupid. I'm having 'fatigue' over all this black nonsense. Spike Lee could make a movie 'Sleepless in Detroit' or just pick a predominately black city.

Its scary watching people reject reality, reason, and logic to make their point. It seems to be happening more and more. Life is akin to crossing a busy 4 lane highway. One yields to the traffic because they will get run over otherwise. These people don't seem to get that. One does not deny reality. To do so usually means death.

They're jumping the shark, and as with pretty much everything else they're throwing against the wall these days most of this silliness will likely backfire, eventually. All I do is read the news and commentaries every morning and it's slowly leaking out that a lot of good, caring and tolerant people are quietly beginning to exhibit symptoms of NFS, Negro Fatigue Syndrome. Racism is a door that swings both ways, obviously. Just an observation.

Lack of success in life tends to come as a result of listening to those community activists telling you that you don't need to work at becoming successful, or that whites are just born lucky. Guess what, you folks have had some serious AA programs aimed right at your community, yet you still complain nobody is helping you. How about helping yourself for a change, and dump your community activists while you are at it. Success takes work and personal responsibility for one's own life. Something the community activists would rather you didn't do.

They are saying blacks inherited sleepiness. And that sleepiness is an inferior trait. Do they even realize they are exactly saying blacks are inferior due to their genetics? Do they know what the word racism actually means? It's not just a pejorative. It has a specific meaning. And they just stepped right in it.

Well when you put so-called inherited Black sleeplessness together with the new math to be taught in the Northwest, saying that just as privileged White folks believe that 2+2=4 is a correct answer, that when the so taught Black folks believe that 2+2=22 is a correct answer, that both answers must be considered correct. So in the years ahead we will be bound to see Black structural engineers who came up under such “woke” concepts who will construct bridges and buildings that will come tumbling down. After that is when we will see a substantial backlash, that will be defended against by the “woke” using the brilliant excuse that everything that goes up must come down.

One must be very careful when describing any adverse qualities in the black population, especially those measured by the Bell Curve, but this report makes it okay by eventually blaming whitey for the problem. Most important, do not mention the shorter lives of blacks in the same sentence with violence and shooting. It's a totally acceptable cultural thing and we should feel obligated to make it a part of our own culture to adhere to diversity and inclusion guidelines.

Texas has 254 counties. Biden approved only 77 counties for disaster relief. The governor calls it an important first step but it falls far short of what Texas officials requested.

Harvard Medical School assistant professor Michelle E. Morse says a new study she participated in demonstrates how slavery reparations “could have been as effective as a vaccine” for COVID-19. Researches claim that infection rates for the contagion would have been reduced by up to 68% if Black Americans possessed $250,000 per individual or $800,000 per household for the historical injustice of slavery. “[Slavery reparations] could have been as effective as a vaccine,” she said for a Harvard Crimson piece published Feb. 16. “I think the fact that the U.S. has skirted its responsibility and avoided reach for reconciliation in a meaningful way
