IMHO, George Floyd died of a fentanyl overdose or, at worst, a fentanyl overdose complicated by his forcibly resisting arrest. We're at each others' throats over an OD.
|I've noticed the yellow line. I read the WSJ every day and the number of race articles has grown alarmingly.|
Important tidbits from the link above.
You think racism got that much worse in six years, so that double the number of white liberals thought it was a “big problem” in America? Goldberg goes on to say that the percentage of black and Latino Democrats who say they know someone who is racist did not really increase over that time — but it shot way up among white Democrats. In other words, white liberals — who totally dominate our media class — came to believe that America is a more racist place than do blacks and Latinos who share their politics...
I bet most people think that “equity” is a synonym for “equality.” That’s not how these woke journalists and academics see it. What Goldberg’s analysis predicts is that the mainstream media are propagandizing the country to prepare it for racial oppression and the seizure of property for redistribution. Or, to put a fine point on it, they are providing the ideological framework for elites to justify redistribution.
A reader who ask that I withhold his name, and who is not white (you’ll see why this may be important), writes:
I was once a first responder. Over ten years ago, I responded to a call at a women’s shelter for a mother who’d been savagely struck in the face by her husband (or ex-)...
Like most events in this line of work, you compartmentalize and all but forget these incidents. Years later, however, as racial tensions began to boil up again, I thought back to that incident and realized how troubled I was by it. It wasn’t just the fact that a woman was so severely beaten and her children had to witness their mother in such agony, but that this sort of thing was happening on a regular basis, yet, nobody really has any idea.
What I mean by this is that Whites are cited as the greatest threat to Black life in this country. Yet, I can guarantee you, the person who struck that Black woman wasn’t White. I don’t know for sure, of course, but I don’t believe in narratives. I believe in statistics. In all likelihood, the person who hurt that woman was a Black man.
When academics, elites, the media, and left-wingers of the public criticize law enforcement, they often treat them as ignorant of or even perpetuating the horrors of the reality of life for Blacks and other racial/ethnic minorities in this country. But that’s not what I’ve seen and I’m fairly certain that’s not broadly the case. If anything, it’s the cops and other first responders who are often the front-row witnesses to these terrible acts that disproportionately affect people in the Black demographic. Worse, the cops are often the only defense they have against their predators.
This is what I'm on about when I write about racialist / Nazi stuff. Real people are being hurt, but our Elites refuse to see it or, if they do see it, refuse to tell us. Instead, it's race, race, race all the time. The press, the academy, the entertainment industry and the tech companies are all pumping race hate like they were Hearst newspapers trying to get the Spanish-American War going.
There's a cynical side of me that is gaining strength. I think this is happening because the Democrats saw themselves losing support among black voters after decades of failure. The only purpose of the race craze is to maintain high levels of paranoia and cement in party loyalty.
Meanwhile, black women go to emergency rooms after having been beaten by their live-in boyfriends.
The Catholic Church Has Failed Utterly
The solution is Catholic sexual morality or some derivation thereof. We preach marriage before sex. The stats show that marriage before sex reduces abuse by a factor of 10 or more. All of the churches I've attended in the last ten years have had a strong social justice movement. In case you weren't following along, that translates into obsessions with race and homosexuality. There is almost no emphasis placed on sexual mores.
We're simply an extension of the popular culture when we should be fighting to save civilization. Without it, we're screwed.
