Doesn't the UK prosecute people for defending themselves with cricket bats? Why is the guy with an effing machete not in jail (not that he should be)?

So let me get this straight. You want me to be less white, but also my becoming less white is also an issue. I see... Whites are always wrong, a classic double bind. Reject it and it's a Kafkatrap. The only winning move is not to play, if you can. I expect people to start getting fired or demoted for walking out ("failing to comply with conditions of employment"), and many lawsuits to follow. The question is whether you can find a contingency-fee attorney to take your case in states that are hotbeds of this sort of stuff, like CA or NY. I wouldn't be surprised to see attorneys who take such cases have their license threatened for violating the bar's "diversity" mandates.
What is "consuming black culture without the burden of blackness"? Listening to The Supremes? What burden is being referred to here?

Is this an escalation of "knockout game"? If the body slam itself didn't kill him it looked like he could have suffered a broken neck and skull fracture sliding headfirst into that garage door. Brutal stuff, I'm not sure a 20 year old would have survived it.

SCOTUS and Congress don't care about election fraud, so why bother? In any case, the impeachment is about alleged incitement. If Trump really wants to make a case for election fraud, then release all the evidence and statistics that the courts refused to even look at.

"Considerate" and "tolerant" are just about the last words I'd use to describe these people.
YouTube has publicly announced that starting today they will delete any video claiming there was fraud or error in the 2020 Presidential election.
Book deals can be extraordinarily lucrative, sometimes even when the book doesn't sell Whenever I see advances that make no sense given any reasonable expectation of sales I presume the book deal is a disguised bribe of some sort. It's pretty easy for somebody to "order" however many thousands of books and launder a bribe through the publisher.

I've been reading reports that the UK is using 45 PCR amplification cycles in its testing, and that WHO is recommending 50 amplification cycles for their "real-time" testing program. If true the case counts being used to justify the UK lockdowns are hopelessly corrupt. That many amplification cycles would give a coconut a positive test result, no wonder they're getting ridiculously huge "case" counts. Healthy people frightened into taking a test even though they have no symptoms would test false positive almost 100% of the time at that amplification level. That's quite aside from the fact that the inventor of PCR said unequivocally that PCR should not be used to diagnose disease.

Yet, curiously, the same people do not think that athletic ability can be poured into anyone through enough training. That's because the left has made it acceptable to say athletic ability is genetic, but you can't say IQ is. Ergo, superior athletic ability cannot be trained, but superior IQ can. Never mind the obvious unreality of the proposition, and the racism it creates in pro sports, racism that the left would deem unacceptable if different racial groups were the beneficiaries of it.

Of course, "failing schools" just means some schools don't have enough "resources", it's not an admission that some schools are crap Interesting how it's always framed as teacher incompetence and a lack of money. Some student populations are crap too. That's not something that can be publicly admitted though.

Prop 209 has been functionally dead in CA for a while now. Progressives have used the courts to attack it from the moment it passed, Prop 16 is just the final burial.
rather more to do with courtesy and treating other people as if they were real, just as real as you, and no more deserving of delays, frustration, or gratuitous disrespect If only my doctors got this message. I am routinely forced to wait 30-45 minutes later than the scheduled time for my doctor to deign to make their appearance.

I think they backed off the driver because they realized he was of a royal caste. If he wasn't his impertinence would have been punished by a beatdown.

But my heart still sinks at the spectre of teaching my sons to ask a White man for permission to do — well, anything What will those sons do should they end up working for a white supervisor?

Oberlin moved to transfer the case out of… their home county, because they didn’t think they could get a fair trial That's odd. You would think that if there is any place Oberlin could get a jury sympathetic to itself it would be its home county. If that isn't so then Oberlin has generated a lot of bad will among the general population.
If one does have expensive medication stolen, who would pay to replace it? Neither the medical insurer nor the shipping pharmacy, presumably. Homeowner's or renter's insurance?
I've posted before about the problem with “social justice”: that, in holding people to account for things others have done, it is, in fact, the opposite of justice. That's now official government policy in Germany. The right is being blamed by high officials for anti-Semitism and violence, when it's obvious to all honest observers that it's first the Muslims, then the left, that's doing those things.

What are "racist and sorting-based mechanisms"? This looks suspiciously like English, but clearly isn't.

Why did England keep rationing so long after the war? That seems whacked. In any case, how are diabetics supposed to fare under this regime? Meat is both tasty and zero carb, while eating a lot of beans, rice, and such seem the opposite of what the doctor ordered.

Bleach causes chemical burns. Pouring bleach onto someone's crotch is surely sexual assault? These guys are lucky none of that splashed into their eyes.
