Do White Men Only Find White Women Attractive?

That’s the assertion of yet another self-identified liberal who says that there aren’t a lot of black women on television because white men don’t find black women attractive, because we’re all racist.  And tons and tons of people broke down laughing at this sad sack because clearly, that’s just not the case.  Even among self-identified conservatives, the vast majority could come up with at least some black women they identified as physically attractive.  I guess the regressive left loses again.

But it was an interesting topic so I thought I’d revisit it again here.  It got me thinking about actresses on TV that I thought were cute and the more that I thought about it, there are quite a few non-white actresses that I think look great, just on modern TV alone.  So here’s my list, in alphabetical order by show name and it could be a long longer if I spent more time thinking about it.  I guess the absurdly racist liberal left haven’t got the slightest idea what they’re talking about.

There’s a really good new show on Canadian TV called Frankie Drake Mysteries, set in the 1920s about a female detective.  Her partner, Trudy Clarke, played by Chantel Riley, is really cute.  The character itself is bright, creative and talented (Riley is has a beautiful singing voice that I could listen to for hours).  Honestly, of everyone on the show, if I was going to be shallow and only pay attention to looks, she’s probably the best.

Moving back to American shows with The Flash.  Candice Patton who plays Iris West is very attractive as well.  Again, another strong female character who is intelligent, brave and creative in her own right without having to rely on a man, although let’s be honest, Flash does have to save her (and everyone else) a lot.  I’ve met her in person and, while I didn’t spend a lot of time with her, she was really nice for the limited amount of time that we’ve spent together.

On to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow which has two gorgeous black women right now.  Masie Richarson-Sellers plays Amaya/Vixen and Tracy Ifeachor plays Kuasa, her granddaughter.  Again, it’s not just looks they have going for them, their characters are strong, independent, self-reliant and smart.  They aren’t damsels in distress that exist to be taken care of, they can kick all of the asses and take all of the names and outperform a lot of the male members of the cast in physical and mental prowess.  I don’t know, maybe you’re seeing a pattern here.

 

Getting back to Canada, Murdoch Mysteries had, until last season, a gorgeous black woman working as assistant coroner and I’m really sorry that she’s gone.  Mouna Traore was Dr. Rebecca James. Of course, they had to portray her as a black woman struggling in a white world, but she was one of the strongest characters, male or female on the show.  Great actress.

Jumping to a show that’s no longer on the air, but Sleepy Hollow had two really beautiful black women on it, sisters Abbie and Jenny Mills, played respectively by Nicole Beharie and Lyndie Greenwood.  Both of them are really good looking in my opinion.  They’re also both excellent actresses.

Now I could probably do the same thing for other actresses of any racial group you could mention, but I think that’s plenty for the moment.  I mean, Jade Eshete over on Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency is cute, if she’d only do something about that hair.  Of course, I’m not actually interested in any of them, even if I met them in person, because I’m happily married, but the idea that white people think black women are ugly is just absurd.  Even conservative white men who aren’t racists can find beauty in women of any color.  We don’t care.  It doesn’t matter to us.  It’s just that the regressive left are so busy playing the race card that they’ve given up even pretending that what they say is factually correct or not.  It just doesn’t matter.  But that’s not our problem, it’s theirs and it’s pathetic.

 

And the Extremists Can’t Figure it Out…

So not too long ago over on Gab, racist asshole Andrew Anglin had a tasteless post up that the registry of Gab took exception to and ordered taken down or they would take down Gab entirely.  And that started a shitstorm of epic proportions that probably rages on to this day.  Nobody cares that it was a matter of survival that it got removed, companies need to go out of business because “free speech!”

Then, BitChute decided to take down another alt-right racist video called “Kill the Kikes! Race War Now!”  Yeah, let’s think about that for a moment.  And of course, the shitstorm just moved elsewhere with everyone screaming that they have a right to free speech with no consequences!

These people are just idiots.  But worse, they’re idiots that can’t figure out why they have so many problems.  They just think they’re right and everyone else is wrong, which is why I’ve largely stopped engaging with them because, like the religious, they are incapable of holding an intellectual discussion about their fanatical beliefs.  It led me to make a video over on YouTube about free speech needing to be responsible speech, but nobody on the fringes, either left or right, is ever going to agree with me there.  It’s really why I’ve stopped caring all that much what goes on over on Gab, because rational people have pretty much given up the ghost.

Now I am an advocate of free speech, I think people ought to be able to say whatever they want to say, but as they say, actions have consequences and none of these people want any consequences at all for their actions.  They want to run around insulting people and suffer no repercussions because “muh free speech!” And I’m sorry but it doesn’t work that way. There has to be some base expectations below which people are not permitted to go.  You have to expect that people will operate relatively maturely and not sink to just calling each other every name in the book.  Yet that’s where Anglin and his cronies want to go, although I will admit that Anglin himself isn’t often as reprehensible as many others on his side, but they have to understand that actions have consequences and they simply refuse to do that.  And when you’re on someone else’s platform and doing things that could conceivably destroy not only their reputation but their entire livelihood, you have no basis whatsoever for demanding that they put up with your shenanigans.  None at all.  Yet that’s exactly what these idiots want.

I really hate humanity anymore.

Racist Trolls are Really Bad at it!

Trolling:  to make a deliberately offensive or provocative online post with the aim of upsetting someone or eliciting an angry response from them.  And if that’s the definition of the word, there are a lot of really blatantly obvious trolls online that are really, really awful at it. It’s like they don’t even know what they’re supposed to be doing.

I’ve come to the conclusion that a huge number of the most offensive racist posters over on Gab are, in fact, trolls.  Whether they actually hold any racist views of their own, it’s clear that these are just children who are trying to piss people off and doing a terrible job at it.  They’re not upsetting anyone, they’re just making themselves look like complete morons in the guise of being “edgy”.

They’re not even entertaining.  I’m not sure who they are trying to piss off because they seem so utterly unfocused.  If they’re trying to piss off the alt-left, which I guess could be interesting, they’re on the completely wrong forums to do it.  Are they going after the alt-right?  Seems like a pointless gesture because they’re saying things that most wouldn’t be offended by, and in fact would probably agree with.  So is it the rest of us, the centrist majority who hates both the far left and far right?  They’re still just a bunch of laughable buffoons who are so absurdly obviously trolling that nobody takes them seriously, yet they exist by the ton and take the bait with nary a moment’s hesitation.  It’s hard to believe anyone is this dumb, but they are!

But that seems to be the new norm online these days, kids pretending that pissing people off is fun, but only if they do it anonymously so they don’t get popped in the mouth.  Unfortunately, they’re not even good at it and they quickly get added to everyone’s ignore list so their idiocy is no longer seen.  Not that I’m complaining, I have a very low tolerance for stupidity these days as it is, but I really don’t understand why they’d think this is a worthwhile way to spend their time.  Then again, I’m sure I’m a lot more intellectual than these low-brows who would probably find kicking cripppled kids to be hilarious.  I weep for the future of mankind, really I do.

I Hate Trolling But I’ll Make an Exception…

In general, I hate trolls and I hate trolling, I virtually never engage in it, but this time I’m going to make an exception for the good of humanity.  I’ve been hanging out on Gab, the alt-right cesspool, and sniping at the racist assholes.  I’m doing so specifically so that they’ll open their fool mouths and show the rest of Gab what a bunch of pathetic losers they are.

And it works wonderfully because they apparently don’t know when to leave well enough alone.  I’m perfectly fine with that because I want them exposed as the immature, irrational shit stains that they are.  I don’t even have to do any work, they do it all themselves.  I just have to start the ball rolling.

It isn’t like it’s possible to debate with these people rationally because they are not rational.  They are every bit as crazy as the regressive left.  They operate solely on emotion.  Intelligence doesn’t even enter into it.  Therefore, I only have to get them spewing their grand Jewish conspiracy, master-race horseshit to get the whole place laughing their asses off at these idiots.  It’s good, clean fun.

Because anyone with half a clue is going to take one look at the garbage they spout and fall over laughing. It’s totally indefensible, just like the social justice nonsense that the regressive left dribbles all over their own chins.  What’s worse, they fall for it again and again and again.  It’s the gift that keeps on giving.  They can’t respond intelligently to facts, the second you point out that nothing they say is at all defensible, they erupt into a wall of impotent rage at every bad thing in the world that is keeping them from being great, except themselves of course.  Like the regressive left, nothing bad that ever happens to them is their own fault.  They take no responsibility for their own lives.  It’s always the faceless threat of non-whites, just like it’s always the imaginary patriarchy on the left.  These people are just idiots through and through.

And these professional idiots are only too happy to show the world just how absurdly ridiculous they are. They just need a little poke. Where’s my stick?

Racist Liberals Ignoring Black Slavery

You know, it’s funny to watch liberals scramble to ignore things that go against their narrative. Someone recently brought up the fact that blacks had slaves in the U.S. as well, plus they are currently the biggest slave-owners on the planet, but hey, liberals ignore that.  And not only did they immediately spring to the defense of black slave owners, they did everything they could to minimize black slavery so they could get back to their “whites are evil” rhetoric.

And that’s the thing, this isn’t about racism, it’s about identity politics.  Liberals love anyone who isn’t a cisgender white male.  They will defend those people, no matter how far they have to contort their views, because white men are evil and everyone else is not.

This reminds me of a recent exchange where I brought up, in passing, the Malik Obama story where he presented a picture of what he claims was his brother’s Kenyan birth certificate.  Now I very clearly said that I thought the whole thing was stupid, just as I have said since 2008, but it’s interesting, at least, that someone who you might reasonably expect might have access to such things is now presenting it.  Interesting.  Not worthwhile, since Obama is out of office.  I don’t even think it’s true.  But it is conceptually interesting.  And apparently, my specifically saying I’m not a birther somehow makes me a birther to the liberal lunatics.  The very fact that I brought it up at all, in a forum dedicated to breaking news stories, was enough to make me a pariah for the liberal community.  These people are idiots.

I will never understand what is wrong with these idiots.  If something is true, be it Obama’s birth certificate or black slave owners, then it is true, whether it offends your liberal sensibilities or not. If it is false, it is false. Reality is what reality is.  How it makes you feel doesn’t change anything. But these idiots are so quick to defend anyone on “their side” or part of “their protected groups” that they are going to attack anyone who even dares to question their regressive faith without regard for the truth or falsehood of their statements.  Whether it’s actually true or not is irrelevant to the left.  It falls outside of their blind faith so it has to be not only rejected, but actively attacked, with the reputation of the offender impugned, because the very idea that liberal beliefs are not totally true is impossible to conceive of.

And this is the major problem with the political left these days.  You can see it in everything they do. Don’t tell me I’m the only one who can see this.

The Bechdel Test and Identity Politics

I will never understand it.  Everywhere I go, I see people talking about how horrible it is that women aren’t in every leading role in every movie, that blacks are not represented in every TV show and that gay people aren’t prominently and positively portrayed at every turn.  And my question to you is… who cares?

I was listening to a podcast and they started arguing about the Bechdel Test for Godzilla movies and I spent the whole time just shaking my head.  What difference does any of it make?

Because here’s the thing.  I don’t care.  I don’t give a damn about the sex or skin color of the people in my entertainment.  As most people know, I’m a big fan of Japanese dramas.  I watch a ton of them and review them on my other blog.  Not once have I ever given the slightest shit that there are no white people on screen.  Not once.  Because I don’t care.  And if you do, why?  Explain it to me. Rationally.

I just finished playing through Rise of the Tomb Raider and it didn’t bother me a bit that the only option I had was to play a woman.  Big deal.  Is that supposed to hurt my feelings?  Or in games that I’ve played where the main character is black, am I supposed to fall into an existential funk because they’re not just like me?  Or am I just supposed to play the game and not give a damn?  Because I fall into the latter camp.

So why do I not care and the identity politics fanatics on the left get butt hurt because they can’t personally identify with the characters in movies, TV shows and video games?  Why do things have to look or act or sound just like them in order to be worthwhile?  That comes off as terribly racist and sexist to me, but then again, that’s exactly what the left is.

The reality is, a lot of the movies that they complain about, the games they make teary-eyed videos about, those are things that are intended for and generally consumed by men.  It is the demographic that typically spends the most money to consume that content.  So it’s no surprise that the majority of lead characters in those games and movies are going to be men.  But you can hear the whiny feminists screaming whenever they notice this, can’t you?  You know what you don’t hear?  Men complaining about the content of chick flicks.  Men don’t get offended when women are the leads in movies and games and TV shows intended for women.  Oh no.  Men don’t scream because male actors are treated as eye candy. Men don’t care. Or at least most conservative men don’t care.  What the hell is wrong with liberals?

This is why I keep objecting to identity politics, because it’s mindless leftist stupidity.  I mean, probably the first time I recognized this was way back when I was a kid and people were insisting that they make black Barbies for black girls because they don’t want to play with white dolls.  It struck me as stupid then, it strikes me as stupid now.  I’m fine with them making whatever might sell, but to do so on racial terms because little black girls are being trained to only care about black people is ludicrous.  If a white kid wants to play with a black doll, good for them.  The reverse is also true.  If they complain that they only want to play with a doll that’s the same color that they are, get them out of that liberal indoctrination center that they’re clearly attending.

I find the whole thing to be terminally idiotic.  Why everyone else doesn’t as well is beyond me.

The Selective Liberal Dictionary

Have I said how much I hate liberals lately?  They are hypocrites of the highest order, at least the ones I tend to debate.  Recently, the story of Ben Carson calling African slaves “immigrants” came out and, of course, the liberal whine parade had to run around screaming that the sky was falling.  Slaves can’t be immigrants because it wasn’t voluntary!

So I pulled out the dictionary and presented the definition of the word:  a person who comes to live permanently in a foreign country.  Nowhere in that definition does it describe the circumstances under which a person comes to live in a foreign country, it just says that they do.  It’s a perfectly accurate term to use, whether the illiberal left likes it or not.

You’d think these people don’t know what dictionaries are.  Of course, we know they do, they trot them out whenever the definition fits what they want to claim, like feminism, but when it doesn’t, they shrug and say “what’s a dictionary?”  Words only mean things when it helps them. They’re a bunch of hypocrites.

But why is this?  Because they have no actual arguments, they are just constant rage machines.  They don’t think, they just react.  They’re looking for something to get upset about, even if what they get upset about makes no rational sense.  This is what happens when emotions are used in place of intelligence.  The left has become the ideology of virtue signaling.  They want to look moral so they get upset at anything and everything that they can justify to themselves just might be bad, even if it isn’t. It’s why we see so much political correctness and censorship on the left, because they have to be higher and mightier than you are, even if they’re really not.

Please people, before you go screaming about some word that made you feel bad, go look up what that word actually means in the dictionary.  It might stop you from looking like an idiot, or at least it might make you look less like an idiot before you open your fool mouth and confirm everyone’s suspicions.

It’s All Arbitrary

If occurred to me, as all good things do, while I was petting my dog.  She’s just about 18 months old now and has clearly taken on the characteristics of both a chihuahua and dachshund.  Yes, she’s a chiweenie.  But that’s just arbitrary, as all dog breeds are, there is nothing fundamentally different between a cocker spaniel and a beagle, they’re all genetically compatible and can interbreed and produce viable offspring.

But isn’t that how humans are too?  All of this nonsense about races is just arbitrary. If you look at the variation in skin color between those termed “black”, you get a huge difference between light-skinned blacks and dark-skinned blacks.  The same is true of whites, of Asians, of Hispanics and every other so-called racial group.  It’s all just arbitrary.  What group does a particularly light-skinned person fit into?  Does it really make a difference?  I don’t think that it does, or should.

Unfortunately, you get a lot of people who can see nothing but skin color as a means of dividing people into arbitrary groups.  They care what these groups are, not who the individual people are.  I find that tremendously disgusting.  And these are the idiots who spend all their time pointing fingers and calling everyone else racist.  What the hell is wrong with these people?

But don’t point out to them how racist they are.  They’ll completely freak out and probably get violent. Violence is something that is becoming part and parcel with young regressives these days.  If they can’t shut you up with words, they’ll do it with their fists.  It isn’t the conservatives that are out there burning things down, it’s the liberals.  Again, I ask, what the hell is wrong with these people?  The more that I study modern liberalism, the more I find wrong with it and the more disgusting I find people who practice it.  Race is arbitrary and apparently, so too is how the left treats it.  The darker you are, the more they care about you.  Isn’t that absurd?

George Lucas’ Redtails is Racist

I was talking to someone about Star Wars recently and over time it strayed into the life of George Lucas.  He brought up that what probably caused Lucas to sour on the Hollywood scene and sell the Star Wars franchise to Disney was his experiences with Redtails, a movie that he wanted a black cast, a black director and black writers to make into an adventure movie for black kids.  So it comes as no surprise to me that when I pointed out that the whole concept is racist, that he got upset.

So how is it racist?  Because catering to anyone because of their race, claiming that they somehow deserve different treatment because of their race, arguing that they have to have different interests because of their race, is by definition racist.

But that’s something a lot of people don’t understand.  Special treatment doesn’t necessarily have to be negative.  It can be positive too.  But it is racist because the treatment is different based on race, or sexist because the treatment is different based on sex.  But that’s how Hollywood works these days.

Now I understand that Redtails is really about the Tuskegee Airmen and is semi-historical in nature. That part is fine.  But the decision to make an adventure movie just for black people, because they are black, is the racist part.  Yes, you have to cast black actors in your historical drama about black people, but to demand that only a black director or only black writers could make this historical drama is problematic.  Who cares who is behind the camera?  Who cares who pens the tale?  Shouldn’t you just get the best people for those positions, regardless of their gender or race?  Because otherwise, you’re just being racist.

It isn’t limited to Redtails though, Hollywood and many moviemakers are explicitly racist as well today. If you make any movie, any movie at all, or any TV series at all, or hell, any video game at all, where you aren’t casting the best people for the roles, but instead pushing some ridiculous identity politics, you are a racist or a sexist.  Identity politics has no place in Hollywood, or anywhere else.

But hey, that’s what ludicrously liberal Hollywood is all about.  They’re not out there trying to make good movies, they’re out there trying to make liberal statements.  They don’t make movies with the best actors and actresses they can, they’re trying to promote identity politics and push a liberal agenda. And that agenda has nothing to do with equality, as they’d have you believe, it has to do with racism and sexism.

Getting back to Lucas, who I don’t think is really racist at all in the traditional sense. I just  think that anyone making movies for any racial or gender demographic has some problems.  This is especially true when it comes to race because it assumes that people are different, just because of the amount of melanin in their skin.  This is ridiculous on its face.  It is the assumption that Hollywood has that they have to put more black people on screen because black people will only want to watch movies about black people.  Or women will only want to watch movies about women.  Yet the moviemaking craft has been successful for decades without such pandering.  Write the best scripts, produce the best movies and employ the best actors and actresses without regard for their gender or  race and you will be fine.  That is unless the liberal left, with their inherently identity political racism, gets in the way.

Unsupported Liberal Claims of Racism

Liberals and the regressive left spend a lot of time claiming that there is institutional racism out there, but can never actually present any evidence to back it up.  Oh, they throw around a ton of claims and anecdotal evidence showing that blacks generally perform worse than whites, but they can never make the demonstrable link to racism, particularly institutional racism, as the cause.

The fact is, you can’t just claim that something is true, you have to prove it and you prove it by being able to demonstrate it through objective evidence and logical inference.  Liberals have done neither but are so emotionally attached to the idea that this failure never dawns on them.

For a group that makes up 13% of the American population, and since this is overwhelmingly male, that number drops to about 6.5%, they certainly commit far, far more than their proportionate amount of crime, according to FBI crime statistics.  But the liberals, instead of acknowledging this demonstrable fact, whine and cry because reality doesn’t make them feel good.  They’re perfectly happy to throw the facts under the bus if it gets them emotional comfort.  Sorry, that’s not how this works.

I have yet to see a single case of modern demonstrable institutional racism presented by the political left.  Not one.  Sure, they will pony up example after example of disparities between blacks and whites and claim this is because of institutional racism, but they can never actually draw the lines proving that it’s actually so.  Saying “this is racism” doesn’t prove that this is racism.  It takes more than that and they have nothing to show.

But they don’t care.  When you point out their own failures, they get upset.  They don’t step back and realize that their emperor has no clothes, they scream and cry and throw around insults, they never actually back up their claims with objective, demonstrable evidence.  That’s because there is none.  The fact is that blacks simply do commit more crimes, per capita, than other racial groups.  This is both economic in nature and because of the “black culture” that poor blacks have insisted on adopting, that teaches them that the world owes them something.  So long as blacks commit a disproportionate amount of the crime, they will represent a disproportionate percentage of the prison population and be executed a disproportionate amount of the time.  Welcome to reality.

Blacks are poor at a disproportionate rate, but this is because they have a disproportionately high rate of making bad life decisions.  They drop out of school at a disproportionate rate.  They get involved in drugs and gangs at a disproportionate rate.  They have children out of wedlock at a disproportionate rate.  All of these things are directly linked to poverty.  This isn’t racism, this is people making choices and paying the consequences of those choices.  That’s not racism, that’s responsibility and we all know that responsibility is a dirty word for liberals.

Of course, the fact that they’re so laughably wrong won’t stop liberals because they don’t care about the facts, only the feels.  They want their target demographics to feel good, whether they’ve done anything to earn it or not.  They can’t actually blame their target demographics for anything, they can’t point out where people fail, because according to them, nobody can fail, at least unless you’re white and male, so it has to be someone else’s fault.  That’s just not how reality works.

Subjects You Can’t Talk About

There’s an old saying that you shouldn’t talk about religion or politics.  I break that rule all the time. I speak truth and I really don’t care if it offends anyone.  But I recently ran into a situation where it’s clear there are other things that people really don’t want to talk about, whether they’re factually true or not.

I was sitting with some friends, talking about work and one of them brought up some of his problem clients.  These tend to be young and poor and, as he said almost under his breath, overwhelmingly black. And he wondered why that was the case, that a group of people that made up less than 13% of the population could cause more than 90% of his headaches.

So I told him.

The reality is, the poor black community has been lied to for generations by the liberal left. They’ve been told that society owes them things.  And society owes them things simply because they are black.  They don’t have to do anything to earn it, but if you don’t show deference and “respect” and fork over whatever they want, they get pissed because they’ve been told that simply because they woke up that morning with black skin, they deserve stuff.

And this guy got really nervous.  He said I shouldn’t talk about things like that.  Well why the hell not?  It’s true, after all!

I think the biggest reason things like this continue to exist in society is because we’re afraid to talk about it. We’ve been told that offending people is the biggest sin imaginable.  Political correctness is rampant in society whether we recognize it or not.  There are things that I think we all recognize, but lots of people are terrified to open their mouths because they fear that if they put it out there, people will think badly of them.

Personally, I don’t care.  I couldn’t care less what anyone thinks of me.  I tell the truth and deal with the consequences.  The people who don’t want to hear the truth can deal with it.  Maybe if more of them did, instead of living in a liberal fantasy land, these problems wouldn’t be so rampant in the first place.  And it’s not racist to bring up reality.  Facts have no race.  It isn’t the fact that these people are black that makes them irresponsible, unreasonable people, it’s the fact that they’ve been lied to, and have bought into the lie, that their skin color matters.  It does not.  We’re seeing the fallout of these liberal ideas today with Black Lives Matter and the return of segregation.  Far too many black people, particularly poor black people, think that the color of their skin makes them inherently different.  They think that they get a different set of rules to live by simply because they are black.  They are wrong.  They need to be told that they are wrong.  How else can we get rid of these ridiculous ideas if nobody has the balls to open their mouths and say so?

People need to stop pretending that they shouldn’t talk about things.  I talk about anything I want to talk about, to anyone who wants to engage in a conversation with me.  I don’t worry if they get offended.  I owe them nothing but the truth and if the truth offends you, the problem lies with you, not with the truth.  That’s something more people ought to figure out.

Stupid Progressives Don’t Understand Diversity

This is yet another case where the idiots on the far left, the so-called progressives, just don’t have a clue what they’re talking about when it comes to reality.  So this complete wingnut shows up and starts bitching about the “lack of diversity” in the teams the U.S. is sending to the Rio Olympics.  He posts lots of pictures, like the one to the right, of all white men on the team.  He also posts a couple of primarily white women and then asks why America is so racist that we’re sending almost all white people to Brazil.

Is it any wonder he conveniently forgot to post the picture of the Olympic basketball team?  You know, the team made up 100% of black men?  However could he have forgotten to post that one?  Oh wait, it doesn’t fit his narrative!

Someone here clearly doesn’t understand how a meritocracy works. These people got on these teams because they EARNED it. You know how they earned it? By being the best at their sport.  The idea of diversity for the sake of diversity is idiotic. The best ought to win. Those who do not win were not the best. You don’t get extra brownie points because you have a different gender or skin color or sexual orientation. We send the best we have to the Olympics. It doesn’t matter if they’re all black or all white, if they’re all male or all female, if they’re all straight or all gay. It matters only that they are the best.

The progressive mentality is idiotic.  Actually, calling it a mentality is an oxymoron.  These people don’t think, they just react.  Nothing they say makes any actual sense, it just caters to their precious little emotions and nothing else.

This is why I keep posting about how stupid the regressives are.  I know it gets tiring, it gets tiring to write about it, but I think it’s important that people realize just how idiotic these people actually are. They just don’t get reality.  They don’t like reality.  They don’t want to live in reality. They’re terrified of reality so they pretend reality isn’t real. That’s why they come off as such imbeciles.

And now you know and knowing is half the battle.

Is #BLM to Blame?

A funny thing has started to happen recently, as those involved with or supportive of the #BLM movement have started standing up for the movement in the light of recent cop shootings.  They say they’re not responsible because the leadership of #BLM didn’t directly and demonstrably order the murders.  Okay, I get that and I agree, the leadership of this movement isn’t personally responsible for these particular heinous crimes, any more than radically anti-abortion churches that teach that it’s better to shoot abortion doctors than allow fetuses to be aborted are personally responsible if someone goes out and pulls the trigger.  The only ones personally responsible for these horrific crimes are the ones who actually committed them.

That said though, in both cases listed above, there is a toxic ideology at work.  No one is saying “hey you should go kill people” but they are  certainly saying “it isn’t the worst thing in the world if this gets done”.  When you are openly teaching that it’s acceptable and a greater good to resort to violence, does it really matter if you are directly commanding the violence or not? And when  you are spewing this kind of hatred far and wide, does the fact that the person who acts on it isn’t actually a card-carrying member of your movement matter?

But in all honesty, I don’t blame #BLM for the violence because the real cause is actually much more insidious.  It’s the same thing that gave us the laughable “occupy” movement.  It’s the same thing that gives us campus crybabies looking for safe spaces.  It’s the same thing that gives us modern radical feminism.  It’s the regressive leftist political ideology that is totally toxic to everything that it touches.  And I’m trying not to call this liberalism because I recognize that a lot of self-professed liberals really, really hate this ideology too, but it’s hard when both occupy the political left. It’s hard when this is the ideology that is taking over the Democrats.  Something needs to be done, but I’m just not seeing widespread opposition to it.

This ideology really is poison to everything.  If Christopher Hitchens were still alive, I’m sure a book along the lines of “How Progressivism Poisons Everything” would be on the way.  It has reversed decades of racial equality, it has reversed decades of class peace, it has tried to stomp on everything good and decent in this country, replacing it with a policy of hands out, gimme gimme gimme, socialist nonsense.  The longer this goes on, the worse things are going to get.  It is a cancer and it is spreading and it is causing violence, not only against innocent cops who are doing their jobs protecting the people, it is putting good people out of jobs for daring to question the regressive narrative, it is causing violence against political opposition.  it is going to destroy this country and this planet.  It’s time that the left excises this regressive poison from their midst, just as conservatives have been excising the religious right from theirs.  We’ll never be better so long as we allow this toxic ideology in our midst.  Who is with me?

Stupid Racist Communist

Okay, I’m not going to blame this one on the liberals because this idiot is a self-identified communist, but geez, he sure talks like a liberal most of the time even though he claims to hate them.  So we’re in this discussion about racism and he’s making statements about “reverse racism” and I point out that there’s no such thing.  Racism is racism, it doesn’t matter what the race is of the racist or the victim, it’s still just racism.  And he freaks out.

He starts demanding that I tell him what is worse, racism by whites against blacks or racism by blacks against whites.  I respond that both are equally as bad but he doesn’t like that answer so he keeps demanding that I pick one or the other.  Sorry, I don’t play false dichotomies, thank you very much.  Racism is racism, racism against any person is just as bad as racism against any other person, period.  Don’t like that?  Don’t care.

See, he wants to make a point and wants me to pick a choice that lets him do that.  Either I pick that racism against blacks is worse, at which point he gets to attack me as a liberal, or I pick racism against whites is worse, at which point he gets to attack me as a conservative.  When I refused to play his game, he just got mad and started hurling insults, which I have to say wasn’t at all unexpected because people who are unable to articulate a decent point without a “gotcha” really aren’t all that stable or intelligent to begin with.  But he’s a communist, what more really needs to be said?

I honestly have no idea why I keep encountering these crazy people, I just do.  They’re everywhere and the more you encounter them, the more you get the stink of their craziness on you.  It makes me happy that I resolved to know when to walk away from insanity and stop beating my head on the wall.  Now, I just do it with twice as many crazy people for half as long.  Not sure if that’s a real improvement.

Racist Liberals can Read Your Mind!

Has this ever happened to you?  You explain to racist liberals that you’re not racist, that you don’t care about a person’s skin color, that you don’t take their race into account in making any decisions about an individual, and they just tell you, flat out, that you do.  Because apparently, they know you better than you do.  Somehow, liberals have developed great powers of mental telepathy, they know what you actually think and believe, even if they have no clue who you are.  They’re just amazing like that.

The problem here isn’t that people are racist, it’s that the liberal mindset tells them that people have to be.  Whether they are or not is irrelevant, their racist ideology makes it necessary to pretend like the world hates blacks and women and gays anyhow, reality be damned.  And when they run across people for whom that isn’t the case… well, that’s the case anyhow.

But it doesn’t stop there.  Another self-identified liberal decided, and I quote:  “In general, blacks face a greater chance of being discriminated against based solely on skin color.” Okay, that’s a claim, now back it up.  Please show us this data, explaining how you eliminated other potential factors that might skew your findings.  And yeah, as expected, not a peep.  They have no evidence.  They have no data.  They just have claims that they think ought to impress people because they said so, as if their say so is enough to convince anyone of anything.  I don’t care how much you want it to be true, it’s only actually true if you can prove your claim with objective evidence.  So why don’t you even bother trying?

And I wouldn’t say if it was just one guy, but it was 4 guys in the same thread, trying to tell me that they know how I think better than I do.  Another one said “Almost everybody says that. Most people are kidding themselves. You may be one of the relatively who actually acts that way, but if so you are indeed rare.”  No, I’m one of the ones who caught you in your empty and frankly offensive lies.  People who are not racist don’t fit into your liberal narrative, hence you refuse to accept that anyone who isn’t racist actually exists.

It’s like that execrable Ghostbusters remake.  Now that it’s actually out and people have actually seen it and, almost without exception, said it’s a horrible, awful movie, the SJWs are still scrambling to defend it because… women.  Every male reviewer who says bad things about it is a misogynist, no matter why they say they don’t like the movie.  And the female reviewers?  Well they don’t exist, unless they liked it, at which point they’re heroes, but if they have anything bad to say, the SJWs refuse to even acknowledge they exist.  Women cannot possibly hate the movie because… you know… women.  It just makes my head hurt.

But all of this makes my head hurt.  Dealing with these liberal idiots running around in circles trying desperately to rationalize their ridiculously false narrative ought to make everyone’s head hurt.  Facts don’t matter.  Reality doesn’t matter.  Only their precious and delicate little feelings mean a thing.  And that’s just stupid.

The Untruth Behind Privilege

So I usually try to give a little benefit of the doubt to young people who post stupid things on the Internet, at least if I see them trying to make some sense and apply some logic to their writing.  After all, they just don’t know any better and how are they supposed to learn if they never try?

But that doesn’t mean that what they write gets any less critical evaluation than anything else.  If you’re going to take the time to write an article or make a video, at least take the time to make sure your facts are correct, otherwise you deserve all the derision you receive.

Take this short article from Feminist Culture, written by 16-year old Sergio Pena. Is it technically well-written?  Yes.  Is it intellectually vapid?  Unfortunately, also yes. So I wanted to take the whole of the article and respond to it, pointing out just how ridiculous the whole thing is and how, with a little research, young Sergio might not have made such a fool of himself.  So let’s get started.

A social privilege is an advantage that is given to a specific group of people for a trait that pertains to that group. Privileges manifest themselves in many ways due to certain traits being favorable over others for a variety of reasons, to the point that they have been normalized and ignored by the groups that benefit from such privileges.

Except nobody has ever been able to prove that any specific group of people have been privileged just for belonging to that group.  In fact, if  you look at one of the left’s primary whipping boys, white men, you find that they make up the largest segment of the homeless population.  I guess that makes being homeless “privileged”.  The fact remains, there are no demonstrable privileges that can be traced to race, gender, sexual orientation, etc.  There certainly are social privileges that come with religion in this country and many others and a lot of unspoken but very real biases against those who fall outside of the local majority religious belief.  But none of that gets talked about in this article, beyond the standard boilerplate arguments about Islam.

Male privilege is one of the more widely acknowledged forms of privilege, which favors cisgender men over all other genders. This privilege is based on the idea that men are stronger and smarter than women, meaning men should be favored over women – thus giving men power. Male privilege manifests itself in many ways but the most significant one is patriarchy – a system of power which puts men as the head of the unit. The patriarchy enforces rigid gender roles that make women seem weak and need more guidance which leads to the subservience of women, while men have greater freedom without as many risks.

That’s absolutely not true.  In fact, you cannot find a single right that is slanted toward men, a single law that is slanted toward men, regardless of their “cis”-ness.  But we have tons of laws and rights that are slanted toward women.  Women can get abortions without consulting their partner if they want out of an unwanted pregnancy, but men have no means of eliminating financial responsibility for an unwanted pregnancy and may pay for 18 years for a child they aren’t even allowed to see.  Woman get reduced sentencing for identical crimes versus men.  Men receive 3x more jail time and are 20x more likely to receive the death penalty for identical crimes.  Women make up the majority of college attendees, yet are still seen as a discriminated against class and are given more gender-specific scholarships than men.  Women are more likely to get spousal support and almost automatic child custody compared to men.  Men work more hours than women and are 9x more likely to die at work than women.  Men are more likely, by far, to be attacked in public and 3x more likely to be murdered.  They are much more likely to commit suicide than women.  The list goes on and on and on and on.  But somehow, men are so much more privileged because… reasons.

The success of women and other genders has been made difficult to achieve due to the existence of an entire system that favors one gender over others in many different ways. The wage gap is another obvious system that favors men over women but it also factors in race, ability, and other aspects of identity. For every dollar a white man makes, a white woman makes 78 cents, a Black man makes 75 cents, a Black woman 64 cents, a Hispanic man makes 67 cents, and a Hispanic woman makes 54.  Notice how the men of each race make more than the women of the respective race: that’s male privilege.

Except the wage gap doesn’t exist.  This has been so completely and absolutely debunked over the years that I really don’t want to waste time going over it again.  It is based on comparing all wages made by men and all wages made by women and finding that  there is a disparity.  This is not comparing men and women in the same jobs, with the same experience and the same skills, this is comparing apples to orangutans.  Men, on average, choose to go into fields that require more experience, more education, more time and more skills and thus pay more.  Women, on average, choose to go into fields that require less experience, education, time on the job and skills and thus make less.  Men work far more overtime than women.  Men take far less time off work than women.  Men retire far later than women.  It’s no wonder that men make more on average because men work harder on average.  This isn’t discrimination, this is personal choice.  But you still get feminists pushing for artificial gender quotas in the highest paying jobs, regardless of whether women have earned their place, or even want it.  There is a constant push for women to enter STEM fields, yet women, by and large, reject all offers, preferring to go into other fields that simply do not pay as well. The only demonstrable “victimization” going on here is by women, to themselves.

Another obvious example of male privilege is the different expectations set for genders when it comes to sex. When a man has sex and discusses it, he is celebrated and he feels empowered for having sex. When a woman has sex and discusses it, she is seen as dirty and promiscuous. Also the concept of virginity has been and still is being forced upon women to save themselves for men, but women should have the choice of when to have sex for the first time. The same concept of virginity is rarely applied to men and when he does have sex for the first time, he’s celebrated and is finally seen as a man. Men receive so many privileges that there are too many to list, but most are sexist and misogynistic in nature.

I don’t think that’s an issue in the west at all.  Sure, if you’re going to talk about the Middle East where women are demonstrably oppressed, you might have a point, but western feminists not only don’t want to talk about Middle Eastern abuses, they stand up and support Islam at every turn.  But let’s get to the concept of virginity.  It is true that in the past, female virginity was valuable, only because female virginity could be objectively measured.  You know if a woman isn’t a virgin, with men, not so much.  And no, that’s not sexism, that’s biology.  With men, they could go out and sow their wild oats, under the social radar of course, and nobody would ever know.  Today though, and it’s been like this for a long time, nobody really cares.  I think that’s a problem because it speaks to one’s moral character how they choose to act and running around rutting like donkeys in heat says nothing good about one’s moral character, male or female.  But in the west, nobody really cares and neither gender suffers any social harm for doing whatever they want to do.  That’s why the out-of-wedlock birth rate is skyrocketing.

Cisgender privilege is the favoring of cis people, those who identify with the gender they were assigned at birth, over non-binary and trans people. The normalization of being cisgender has led to a harsh view of trans and non-binary people since their genders don’t fit what society considers “normal.” Cis privilege is present in so many basic ways. A cis person doesn’t have to worry about somebody asking about his or her genitals or how he or she has sex; trans and non-binary people have to deal with that frequently. Cis privilege is known that you’ll be able to safely use gendered spaces such as bathrooms, locker rooms, and in-store dressing rooms, whereas trans and non-binary people are often forced to use the bathroom that corresponds with their genitals, putting them at a greater risk of being assaulted or harassed by cis people in the bathroom for their gender identities.

Here’s a secret for you.  Nobody has a gender assigned at birth.  Gender is what sexual organs you have, controlled by what genes you inherited from your parents.  Doctors do not assign you a gender at birth, they recognize the gender you are born as, based on an observation of your external sexual characteristics.  You are welcome to continue to identify as that gender or change your mind as time goes on.  Your mindset doesn’t change reality.  Bruce Jenner can become Caitlin Jenner or go back to being Bruce Jenner as much as desired, it doesn’t change the fact that she has a particular genetic profile that identifies her as biologically male.  I have no problem with people choosing, for whatever reasons, to identify as whatever they want to identify as, but their desire doesn’t change “normal”.  Normal is what is average in society and the overwhelming majority of humans identify as their biological genders.  When you operate outside of the norm, you are going to get questions from curious people and curiosity is normal.  It might be somewhat uncomfortable for the one being questioned, but as I say continually, actions have consequences and one needs to accept the potential consequences before they take the actions.  Such is reality.

Cis privilege extends beyond the basic necessities. For example, the portrayal of trans and non-binary in media is near non-existent but when there are trans and non-binary roles in a film or television show, they’re often given to cis people such as Eddie Redmayne’s (a cis man) portrayal of a trans woman in The Danish Girl. Also cis people don’t have to worry about their gender not being listed on forms that ask for gender or their gender identity being wrong on official forms of identification. Because of the normalization of cisgender, crime rates against trans and non-binary people are higher than crime rates against cis people.

Why do you people not understand the concept of “actors”?  Actors and actresses work by portraying people that they, themselves, are not.  The idea that studios only ought to hire gay actors to play gay roles and transgender actresses to play transgender roles is utterly idiotic and betrays a complete misunderstanding of what acting actually is.  More and more often, “other” is becoming commonplace on forms below “male” and “female” and because non-binary whatever you want to call it makes up a minuscule percentage of people in any given society, that is probably all that you have a right to expect.

Able-bodied privilege is the favoring of able-bodied and neurotypical people over those who are disabled and/or neurodivergent. The normalization and favoring of able-bodied and neurotypical people is the result of disabled people being seen as weak and inferior while neurodivergent people aren’t “stable.” This privilege was systematically enforced at one point through eugenics which tried to weed out the genetically weak, specifically targeting disabled and neurodivergent people in order to create a “stronger” gene pool and a more “efficient” society. In addition, the unemployment rate for disabled people is nearly twice as high as able-bodied people’s rate at an overwhelming 12.5% in 2014. Employers tend to overlook disabled people because disability may interfere with the person’s ability to do the job or able-bodied people are just believed to do the job better simply for being able-bodied.

I get really sick of this “neuroatypical” nonsense.  This is just more politically correct, don’t offend anyone for any reason bullcrap.  And of course the unemployment rate for disabled people is higher, they are not as capable of performing work as non-disabled people are.  He says right there, employers tend to overlook disabled people because their disability may interfere with their ability to do the job.  So are employers supposed to hire people who are unable to do the work for which they are being hired?  Is this guy stupid?  That’s not saying there aren’t jobs which the disabled can do and certainly, if they can do a job with or without minimal aid, they should be allowed to do the job.  That part is already written into the law.  But to suggest there’s some kind of overt discrimination going on is ludicrous, it’s like saying that newborns are being discriminated against because they have a near 100% unemployment rate.  Well that’s because they can hardly hold their heads up, much less do any kind of work!

Disabled and/or neurodivergent people may have difficulties paying for the services they need in order to function, due to insurance costs, not having insurance, or the insurance not covering the services needed. The portrayal of disabled and neurodivergent people in the media is very limited but when a character that is meant to be neurodivergent is portrayed (such as Deadpool who has schizophrenia), the disability or mental illness is erased as was done with Deadpool. The use of ableist slurs is extremely prevalent with slurs such as r*tard, and id*ot, being thrown around by able-bodied people as young as middle-schoolers. There are many more ableist slurs that are so commonly used such as d*mb and st*pid, and these slurs are ableist in nature since they note limited intelligence, which may be a result of a disability.

And that’s why most of these people are covered by free or ultra-low cost insurance provided by the government.  People with legitimate disabilities are already taken care of at taxpayer expense. And if you can’t spell “retard”, fuck you.  Enough with this childish nonsense.

Another systemic form of privilege is white privilege which favors white people over all other races. White privilege is enforced through eurocentrism and racism so that people of color aren’t seen as superior or even equal to white people. White privilege gives white people benefits that people of color don’t receive, such as a higher pay for white women and men, knowing that a traffic stop won’t end badly, and having more representation in the media. A fellow Feminist Culture writer named Salli Sanfo wrote a more in-depth article about white privilege.

White privilege doesn’t exist.  If it did, we wouldn’t have affirmative action.  We wouldn’t have race-based scholarships for non-white students.  We wouldn’t have quotas for hiring of non-white workers.  If there was white privilege, then white people would have all of those things and non-white people wouldn’t.  But don’t bring that up to progressives or  they’ll shit themselves.  Again, just like the gender wage gap, the difference in average income between races has to do with life choices, not racism.  People are responsible for their own choices in life. Everyone is responsible for getting the best education they can while it is available and it is available to everyone.  Everyone is responsible for making the best, most responsible choices they can.  They are responsible for not breaking the law.  They are responsible for not joining gangs or doing drugs.  They are responsible for not having children out of wedlock.  But if you look at the statistics, 73% of blacks have children out of wedlock, compared to 29% of whites.  Now I think that 29% is absurdly high, considering that it was only 2% in the 60s, but 73% is just ridiculous and it is all personal choice.  Nobody is holding a gun to their head and forcing them to breed irresponsibly.  But if you drop out of school, if you join gangs and do drugs, if you break the law and go to prison, if you have illegitimate children, what do you expect to happen to you and to your children?  The dropout rate in California for blacks was 37% compared to 14% for whites and 10% for Asians.  Whose fault is this?  It isn’t racism, it’s personal irresponsibility.

Privilege is completely intersectional, meaning that you may benefit from multiple privileges at the same time. For example, the most privileged group in Western society is an able-bodied, neurotypical, wealthy, cisgender white man. Privilege also includes class privilege because of the benefits of being wealthy or well off, and straight privilege because being heterosexual is seen as normal. It is important to not feel resentful for having privileges pointed out; rather, you should acknowledge them and use them to empower and amplify the voices of disadvantaged groups.

Or you might not be privileged at all, maybe you just worked harder than the other guy.  Sure, we don’t all start off at the same spot, that’s just reality.  There are plenty of wealthy blacks out there that are far better off than I am and I don’t point at them and pretend racism got them ahead of me.  They worked hard and earned what they got.  Good for them.  I don’t blame others for my shortcomings.  That’s entirely on me.  And here we see more progressive whining about what’s “normal”.  News flash for you pal, being able-bodied, sane, successful, heterosexual and non-transgender is normal.  Normal just means that it represents the majority.  Being part of the majority doesn’t make you privileged.  Yes, we need to make sure that those people who fall outside of the norm are not abused or discriminated against and by and large, they are not.  Where they are, we need to fight for equality.  Mostly, those fights have been won.  But for the regressive left, they can never admit that their fight is over, they have to constantly look for more and more wars to wage under the same labels they’ve always used.  They don’t want to actually win, they want to constantly find more victims so they can proclaim discrimination.  Sometimes they just make victims up because it’s easier than admitting that their ideology is unnecessary.  They want the government to solve all problems and in so doing, they absolve their victim groups of having to take any responsibility for themselves.  This is why people laugh at the regressive left and honestly, they’ve earned it.  Maybe when this writer grows up, he’ll figure that out for himself but I wouldn’t bet on it.  Growing up is something the regressive seem resistant to doing.

Freddy Gray Got What He Deserved

The verdict has come back regarding the driver of the van that Freddy Gray died in the back of, clearing him of all charges, and as should have been expected, the liberal shitbags are up in arms because… reasons.  It has to be the fault of the cops that Freddy Gray died.  It just has to be.

It’s just that reality says otherwise.  The court found that the testimony given by another person in the back of the van held up to scrutiny, even though the testimony was eventually retracted because going against the racist #BLM thugs tends to be bad for your health.  The testimony matches all of the forensic evidence that states that Freddy Gray was told to remain laying down on his stomach during the van ride, he chose instead to stand up and act erratically, and that led to his injuries and subsequent death.

Well stupid, do what you’re told!

Apparently, the racist left think black people are too stupid to do as they’re told because it must be the fault of the police that this happened!  It can’t be the fault of Freddy Gray, who has a long criminal history in the first place.  It can’t be the fault of Freddy Gray that he violated his probation.  It can’t be the fault of Freddy Gray that he got arrested and it certainly can’t be the fault of Freddy Gray that he decided to stand up and dance around in the back of a moving police van in violation of orders to do otherwise.

Sure, not his fault at all!  It’s all a white conspiracy!

See, the law is colorblind.  There are no laws only for black people, no laws only for white people, the laws apply to everyone. If you violate the laws, you deserve to pay the penalty.  For some weird and wholly racist reason, the left seems to think that being black makes you special and that you can ignore some laws with impunity because they shouldn’t apply to you.

Liberals are idiots.  I am sick to death of idiots, especially the racist idiots that the illiberal left is turning into.  Freddy Gray got what he deserved.  It’s a shame that he’s dead, but his entire life led to that moment.  Nobody is to blame but him.  Maybe it’s about damn time the asshole left figured that shit out.

Why Can’t Liberals Stop Being Racist?

You know, I get so sick of this every single day when liberals are continuously racist and sexist and genderist and all the rest of “ists” that they throw around.  The most recent example is the furor over Scarlett Johanssen being cast in the live action Ghost in the Shell movie by idiot liberals who have no clue why they’re just wrong about the whole thing.  I actually did a video over on my YouTube channel about one of them so for an explanation, by all means go watch that.

But why is it for a group of people who don’t want racism and sexism and all of that, the only thing they can ever pay any attention to is race and sex, etc.?  Why is this all they see in everything?  Because I’ll tell you, they spend more time bringing up race than the most ardent racist, they spend more time focusing on gender than the most extreme sexist and their abject hatred for white men is legendary.  They are the biggest racists and sexists on the planet but they refuse to acknowledge it.

Race and gender and sexual orientation ought to be a complete non-issue.  It shouldn’t matter who Hollywood casts in a movie. They ought to hire the best actor or actress and the color of their skin or where they want to stick their genitals should be completely irrelevant.  The idea that they ought to hire people from one racial group or another ought to be totally ridiculous. Hire the best people for the job and stop focusing on irrelevant characteristics that honestly mean nothing.  But no, you get stupid liberal asshole racists and sexists screaming that if you don’t pick from approved categories (and who gets to approve those categories? Them, of course!), that somehow there’s something wrong with you.  No, there’s something wrong with them! I don’t personally care if Hollywood wants to hire a black lesbian dwarf with one leg to play Motoko Kusanagi.  It doesn’t matter, so long as she is the best person for the role that they can get.  It doesn’t matter if she’s black or white or brown or green or purple for all I care, so long as she’s a good actress.  I don’t even care if she’s naturally female, she can be transgender if that’s who is best at the role.  It makes no difference to me.

But it makes a hell of a lot of difference to these liberal fucks, who have their little checklist that they go down, who has to have more representation in every industry because somehow, enforced quotas are how you get equality.  These people don’t know what equality is.  They only know their own racism and sexism and genderism and ableism and anyone who dares to point out what they’re doing, as has happened to me plenty of times in the past, gets peppered with every nasty insult in the book.  Apparently pointing out the racism of liberals is, in and of itself, racism.  You try to figure that one out.

Cooking the Numbers for Diversity

They’re blue, stop making it about race!

There’s a recent news story out that says that “more diverse movies make more money“, saying that movies that have more than 50% non-white actors make more money than movies that have all white actors.  Um…  not really, no.

All you have to do is look at the highest grossing movies of all time.  Now I agree that it’s hard to gauge Avatar, the #1 movie, because it features a lot of blue CGI characters, but of the human characters, you have Michelle Rodriguez, Dileep Rao and Scott Lawrence and maybe James Gaylyn.  Sure, there are other non-white actors providing voices for blue people, but not on screen.  The overwhelming majority of actors in the movie are white.  Sam Worthington, Steven Lang, Sigourney Weaver, Giovanni Ribisi, Joel David Moore, Matt Gerald, Jason Whyte, Jacob Tomuri, the list goes on.  I’m only trying to list major characters that appear multiple times, not bit parts.

Or what about Titanic, which still lands at #2?  Again, almost entirely white actors.  Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Billy Zane, Kathy Bates, Gloria Stewart, Bill Paxton, Frances Fischer, Victor Garber, Bernard Hill… I could go on and on.  How many major non-white actors?  None.  Okay, maybe this one isn’t fair because it’s a period piece and I grant you that one, but still, Titanic has made $1.843 billion dollars worldwide so far.

Okay, the new Star Wars flick, it falls at #3, how did it do?  Well, it does have John Boyega and Lupita Nyong’o and that’s about it.  But for white actors, it has Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Gwendolyn Christie, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, plus the whole original cast, all of whom were white.  Are we seeing a pattern here?

One more.  Jurassic World, which comes in at #4.  Non-white major cast includes Omar Sy, Irrfan Khan, B.D. Wong and Brandon Richardson.  That’s not bad.  But the white cast has Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D’Onfrio, Judy Greer, Jake Johnson, Katie McGrath and a host of others.  In short, not one of the top four movies of all time has what this article describes as a “diverse cast”.

So what does this tell us?  It tells us that this article is a load of nonsense.  The movie-going audience goes to see good movies, not diverse movies.  This is a perfect example of correlation not being causation.  Even if the figures are correct and movies with a diverse cast do make somewhat more than movies without one, that doesn’t mean that the diverse cast is the cause of the movies making more money.

The fact is, it doesn’t matter to anyone… except the racist liberals who pay attention to nothing but race and gender and sexual orientation, who are looking for quotas and not paying the slightest bit of attention to the quality of  the movies.  But that’s what sells.  Good films.  Quality movies.  Flicks that people really want to see.  That’s what makes money, not slavish attention to the skin color, genitalia and orientation of everyone hired to be in the thing.  That’s just stupid, but then again, we are talking about liberals here, aren’t we?

Liberals Don’t Have a Clue What Racism Is

I don’t know about you, but I get really sick and tired of liberals ranting and raving about racism, only to prove that they have no clue what racism actually is.  They scream about institutionalized racism but cannot produce a single demonstrable case of it.  I ask, they fail to produce but they won’t abandon their unjustified claims regardless.

So recently, another crazed liberal showed up and started making all of the same old tired claims and I called him on it. I asked him to list cases of demonstrable institutionalized racism, not racism caused by individuals, but racism caused by and enshrined in the system. After all, while I’m happy to admit that it’s happened in the past, I cannot think of anything today that hasn’t already been addressed.

His response:

Cool, when will race based policing be addressed? What about the historically insufficient funding for inner-city schools? People are waiting.

Okay.  Beyond the fact that neither of those are institutionally racist, he apparently has no clue what racism actually is. But by all means, I’d be happy to address these, as I said I would.  And did.  And he ignored it, as liberals tend to do.  So I’m going to do it here too.

What is race-based policing?  We know, from FBI crime statistics, that blacks commit a disproportionate percentage of many crimes.  Blacks make up something like 13% of the American population, yet commit far more than 13% of the crimes, especially when it comes to violent crimes.  In fact, if  you look at the crime statistics in aggregate, blacks commit 28.4% of all crimes, at least in 2011 which is the last year that statistics are available.  When you look at murder, they commit 49.7% of all murders in the nation.  Robbery?  55.6%.  Gambling?  66.9%  In fact, in pretty much every single category on the list, with the possible exception of DUI, they commit far more than the 13% of the total crimes that we’d expect if crimes were actually in keeping with their percentage in society.  They’re just not and it isn’t some racist conspiracy that gets blacks arrested, it’s that they are actually guilty.  Now it really has nothing to do with race and almost everything to do with socioeconomic class and poverty, the people who get arrested for many crimes are almost entirely poor and because blacks are disproportionately represented among the poor, of course they are going to be arrested more because they are simply committing more crimes. But to a liberal?  It’s a conspiracy, not a reality.

And “historically insufficient funding for inner-city schools”?  Well, we really can’t address history here, we can only look at what is happening right this minute.  Schools have traditionally been funded out of the property taxes of the surrounding area, such that more affluent areas with more valuable properties have more taxes levied and thus, the schools receive more money. This isn’t racist, this is just how the system works.  Nobody has their fingers on the purse strings, saying “that school has a lot of black people, let’s give them less money!”  That’s absurd.  But even in states like California, where every single school gets the same amount of money, inner city schools do far poorer than those in other areas.  It isn’t the money to blame, it’s the culture in those inner city ghettos.  When you have people who don’t value education, who don’t value responsibility, who promote gangs and drugs and single parenthood and teach kids that if they try to rise above the ghettos, they’re race traitors and “Uncle Toms”, what the hell do you expect?  But liberals never blame the actual culprits, they’ve got quotas to enforce and it can’t actually be the people involved that are responsible, it has to be racism!

It isn’t racism, it’s a failure in their ideology.  Like it or not, all cultures are not equal. Yeah, I know that’s horrifying to the multicultural crowd, but some cultures are simply more successful than others.   The ones that teach personal responsibility, the ones that teach education, the ones that teach upward mobility, those are the ones that produce the best outcomes, and guess what?  Those cultures tend to be conservative, not liberal.

Imagine that.

White Guilt

Recently, there was a story out of Virginia where a high school was showing students a video about “white guilt“, but it was eventually stopped following criticism of the content.  I’ve included the video below for those who are curious.  Of course, a huge explosion on the left occurred because they want all white people to be forcibly taught that they’re awful, just like feminists want all men to be taught they’re rapists.  It’s part of the leftist indoctrination campaign.  Get ’em while they’re young and you’ll own ’em for life.  Religion operates exactly the same way.

So this brought up a lot of people crying about “white guilt” and “white privilege”, which in turn brought up the image to the left.  Yeah, I know what the liberals are thinking, there’s a white guy dressed up as an American Indian, speaking down to an actual American Indian.  Boo hoo. My response is… so what?

Why should anyone be offended at this?

I get so sick of the left’s race politics. For people who supposedly want a color-blind society, they sure pay a lot of attention to color.  But let’s be honest, they don’t want a color-blind society at all, any more than they want a gender-blind or a sexual-orientation-blind society.  What they really want is an anti-wealthy-white-men society and that’s what they push.

They also push “pride”.  Black pride, brown pride, Asian pride, but not white pride.  Never white pride.  Being white is something you ought to be ashamed of.  White people have to bow down to non-whites because of bad things that were done in the distant past by people who aren’t even alive today.  If a white person dresses in black-face for Halloween, liberals lose their shit.  But you know something?  If a black person dresses in white-face, should I be offended?  Well I’m not.  Go ahead!  It doesn’t bother me!  It doesn’t bother anyone!  Knock yourself out!  Why?  Because I don’t think of myself as white.  My skin color is not a defining characteristic of my self-image.  I am who I am, not what my genetics defined me to be.  I think that’s the biggest problem with liberal racial politics.  It’s not character that matters, it’s what you look like.  That’s stupid.

So that brings us back to the image at the top of the page and why I think it’s so stupid that people get upset at it. That guy on the left didn’t dress up to make fun of the guy on the right.  He did it because whatever sports team he’s rooting for uses an American Indian-based mascot.  And you know why?  Not because they’re making fun of the American Indians, but because they are proud of them.  Because the Indian motif is a symbol of strength.  It’s the same reason sports teams call themselves things like Cougars and Bears and Panthers and not Pomeranians and Chihuahuas.  It’s because they are proud of the imagery, because it evokes a feeling of power and strength.  It’s something that these groups should take pride in, not offense, but that’s not the liberal way.

Liberals need to grow the fuck up.

Stop Being Black Men

Spike Lee is boycotting the Academy Awards because he’s mad that the awards are not being given away along racial lines. He’s not alone, Jada Pinkett Smith is doing it as well.  I suppose that the Oscars will have to stumble along without them because there’s something they entirely miss.  Maybe, just maybe, the good movies this year were dominated by white people?  Did they ever give that one a thought?  Of course they didn’t.

Now I can’t say for sure that this was a statement by Lee, although it came from a radio news report on this whole debacle so it probably was, but he wants black men to be proud of being black men. Presumably, he also wants black women to be proud to be black women, but hey, this could be sexist as well as racist, who knows?  How about you stop being proud of being black.  Honestly, how about you stop being proud of being men.  Just be decent people.  Is that too much to ask?

Apparently so because lots of people see skin color as something to take pride in.  Well, black skin, maybe brown skin, perhaps yellow skin and red skin, if you want to attach arbitrary colors to such things.  White skin, no, you can never be proud of that! That’s racist!  But it’s just stupid.  Why in the world would you take pride in something that is entirely an accident of birth? What purpose does being proud of your skin color or your hair color or your eye color or your height serve?  Isn’t it the quality of your character and not the conditions of your birth that make you a worthwhile person?  Not to crazy racist liberals, I guess.

But for these people who see race in everything, then spend all their time pointing fingers at everyone else and screaming racism, I guess we can expect no better.  The Academy Awards, indeed any award show, isn’t about equal outcome and political correctness, it’s about recognizing excellence in performance among actors and other technical individuals in the movie industry.  If black people don’t win more awards, maybe it’s because they aren’t in good movies or don’t turn in memorable performances.  But no, that couldn’t be it, it has to be racism!  By all means, if Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith want more black actors and actresses to win awards, they can join the Academy, they can cast their votes like everyone else and see how things go.  There is a process, but the members are expected to vote on merit, not skin color, and it’s clear that some people are incapable of doing so.  It’s racists screaming about racism.  Hope they enjoy sitting home on their proud black asses while everyone else has fun on the red carpet.

#BlackRacistsMatter

Oh look, the left are racist again and nobody is paying any attention!  At Dartmouth College, you got #BlackLivesMatter protesters who invaded the college library and started screaming racial epithets at white students and not only does nothing happen to them, the school pulls all coverage of it off of the website of the Dartmouth Review.  It used to be located here, but you’ll notice it sure isn’t there anymore.  Sure, we’re all surprised.

Of course, if this had been white students screaming racial epithets at black students, you would have had the riot police out in force and the whole school demanding mass expulsions for everyone involved.  Instead, at least as of this writing, the school has done nothing and frankly, I’m not holding my breath that anything will happen at all.

[youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJAuVQlLxD0′]

But this is symptomatic of the modern liberal educational system.  Some people, those favored by the left, get to get away with murder and those the left isn’t wild about are held  accountable for their actions, even actions they haven’t even committed. You have feminists pulling fire alarms to stop men’s groups from peacefully meeting and apparently suffering no negative repercussions.  How much do you want to bet that if a men’s group protested a feminist meeting and did the same thing, they’d be in handcuffs?

[youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GO_X4DkwA_Q’]

The fact remains that there is a distinct double standard here.  Liberal social justice causes get away with murder and anyone else gets shouted down as being essentially sub-human  But these people are committing crimes, it is against the law to do what they did, to go around using what amounts to racial terrorism to attack other people.  These people need to be in jail, prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, expelled permanently from their school and made an example of so everyone knows what kind of behavior is absolutely not acceptable.

Any bets they’ll all get away with it scot free?  Yeah, I think so too.  Clearly they need another, more accurate hashtag: #BlackRacistsMatter.

Blackface for Halloween

This might seem a bit late, being somewhat about Halloween, but it’s actually more about hypocrisy that we see on the left all the time.  Chairman of the San Carlos Apache Tribe, Terry Rambler has been very vocal in demanding that the Washington Redskins change their name because he sees it as racist.  However, he only seems to see racism as it relates to Native Americans, he doesn’t seem to think about it much when it comes to supposed racism toward other groups.  How do we know? Because Terry Rambler went to a party for Halloween dressed as Bob Marley, complete with blackface.  Apparently, it never even occurred to him until it was pointed out after the fact.

Of course, he apologized, but the fact that he did it in the first place shows that he isn’t as “politically correct” as these people tend to pretend they are.  This is something that I see all the time on the left though, the social justice idiots who are screaming about racism, but who are really only concerned with “racism” toward certain groups, they entirely ignore it toward others. This is particularly true when it comes to white people, who the left are entirely fine with attacking, they overlook any racist comments made toward white people, as though they deserve it, but when it comes to someone of another skin color, they freak the fuck out.

Now personally, I don’t think this is a big deal.  I don’t think that anyone has a right not to be offended by anything, for any reason.  If someone insults your race, your gender, your sexual orientation, your height, your eye color, you name it, too bad for you.  It is up to you what you choose to be offended over and I couldn’t care less, on a personal level, what Rambler chose to dress up as.  Halloween is about having fun.  It is not about being a representative of some group you’re dressing up as.  It gets ridiculous, I’ve seen Wiccans whining that kids dressing up as witches is somehow insulting to them.  Heck, I saw someone arguing online that anyone dressing up as a vampire is being purposely insulting to people in the “vampire lifestyle“.  What’s next?  Claiming that zombies are insulting to the walking dead?  Seriously?

I think these people need to take a serious step back and look at reality, rather than the bizarre little fantasy they clearly have going on in their heads.  The Washington Redskins isn’t insulting to Native Americans.  If you think it is, grow up.  People dressing up as Count Dracula is not offensive to people with weird sexual kinks.  If you’re offended, fuck off.  Stop searching for insult in things that are not intended that way.  At the very least, stop pretending that you get to control the narrative and only pay attention to your own little group, if you’re going to insist that nobody offends you, the least you can do is not offend others. But the left doesn’t really understand that, do they?

 

Losing Their Shit

I could have predicted this, in fact I did, and as usual, it came true. I recently did a video about the fundamentalist religion of libertarianism, in which I predicted, accurately, that I’d have libertarians coming out and screaming at me because I’d somehow offended them by making a video all about them and how awful I was because I’d made them look bad.

No, they made themselves look bad and it’s really funny to watch them rant and rave about how bad *I* am that they are reacting the way that *THEY* are.  It’s more evidence of the abject emotional insecurity of humanity.

First off, I already said that I was only talking about a particular set of libertarians, I was very specific in my video, but the people who came back at me, one in particular, was screaming that he was not that way at all.  Then why is he responding? He already knows, if he watched the video, that I’m not talking about him, but just  by his very response, it’s painfully clear that I am and he knows it, he just doesn’t want to be honest about it.

There’s this really weird human reaction that if  you use a word that someone uses in relation to themselves, even if you’re clearly not talking about them, even if they clearly don’t fit into whatever you’re talking about, they have to get mad because somehow, your criticism of other people reflects  badly on them.  This is a very immature reaction.

And of course, it isn’t just the libertarians that do it, that’s just the most recent example.  Liberals.  Feminists. Conservatives. Christians. Muslims. All of them are equally guilty.  They are more concerned with the label they choose to wear than the content of the discussion going on.  They don’t even care if what you’re saying is completely accurate, if it makes them feel bad, they drop trou and spray feces on everyone and that’s a problem.

Seriously, shouldn’t the actual content be more important than how the discussion makes you feel?  This is why the religious have such a problem having a rational discussion about things like abortion and gay marriage.  The idea disgusts them on an emotional level and they are unable to rise above it.  The feelings are all that matters.  The same goes for libertarians and their claims about statism and natural law and all of that.  It doesn’t make any sense, they cannot demonstrate any of it, but if you criticize it, they freak out.  Or liberals who can’t talk about feminism or racism or gender politics without throwing around words like “misogyny” in an irrational attempt to smear their detractors.  It’s why so many important discussions these days are at a complete stand still, because you have two sides who can do no more than fling poo at each other.

So anyhow, here’s the video, you can go over to YouTube to see the comments if you really want, but I’m sure you’ve run into this plenty of times yourself.  It really is sad, isn’t it?  Can’t people just talk intellectually without losing their shit?

Stupid While Being Black

This is what I feel like when I read articles like this.

Things like this make me want to slam my head into a wall repeatedly and I have no idea how anyone with half a clue could possibly write something this utterly idiotic.  Oh wait, they’re liberal!  How silly of me.

Now seriously, I really don’t get why it is that so many black people make it so utterly important that they are black.  Being black is fundamentally the core of their being, apparently.  Not being human, not being American, not being male or female, but being black.  Why? What difference does it make?  And this guy, Damon Young, even makes sure that he points out all of the stereotypes so he can play right into them. Right away, he says “You drove to work, and even got there on time! (Which you’ve made a point to do this year. Because stereotypes.)”  No, not because stereotypes, because that’s what EVERYONE is expected to do!  If the only reason you’re getting to work on time is because you’re trying to break some black stereotype, you’re a lazy little shit with no work ethic.  That’s like saying the only reason you don’t go around raping, pillaging and murdering is because you’re afraid to fall into some stereotype.  No, it’s because you’re supposed to be a decent, moral person!  Is this guy an idiot?  Don’t answer just yet.

But then, the horror, some idiot you knew in high school sends you something hashtagged #blacklivesmatter and you just lose your shit.  Why?  Well, if you’re a decent person, you think #blacklivesmatter is really idiotic because all lives matter, regardless of skin color, but no, a lot of people on the left have now been indoctrinated to think that there is some difference between black lives and all other lives.  But hey, because you are not being catered to, that just ruins your day and now, you just need to be given a paid day off work because… you’re a fucking idiot.

Seriously, what in the hell is wrong with these people?  Oh no, things don’t go your way so you’re now entitled, and yes, these people think they are entitled, to get special treatment because life isn’t perfect.  Too bad, so sad, fuck you, get over it. Honestly, what has happened in these people’s lives that race politics has now become the defining factor in their lives, the entire point and purpose of their existence, that they cannot imagine themselves separate from the color of their skin?  Welcome to modern day liberalism!  And if some white person makes you mad while you’re wallowing in your identity political funk, you just might go postal on their ass and that certainly won’t be your fault, will it?  Except it is.

These people are just out of their fricking gourds.  They have no grasp on reality, but liberalism doesn’t make you want to accept reality as it is, it wants people to be victims, abused by the very existence of anyone who is different, because they can only see the world through the lens of race or gender or sexual identity.  You are not an individual.  You are a skin color. You are defined by what’s between your legs.  You are defined by where you put what’s between your legs.  Nothing else matters and just acting like a decent human being, for the sake of being a decent human being, that’s antithetical to your cause.  Why, if you actually had to act like everyone around you, if everyone was held to a common standard, you might not be able to be constantly angry at the world!  What would happen to you then?

In a world of liberal professional victims and constant rage, this is what the world has come to.  People seething just under the surface, ready to lash out because they think everyone is out to get them.  This is why Michael Brown has been a martyr for these people.  He attacked a cop.  He got shot. But apparently, to these black-lives-only activists, the people who think that blacks deserve to strike back at authority, Brown deserved to get in his licks and get nothing in return.  He got what he deserved.  A bullet.  You don’t attack the authorities, I don’t care what color  your skin is.

Now shut the fuck up and get back to work.
