Episode 64 – Cultural Appropriation – So, So, Good!

Episode 64 - Cultural Appropriation - So, So, Good!
https://youtu.be/Hd_L5wNYEw4 Actually, Jackass, it is reasonable to believe that people have been sharing their cultures from the very beginning. As long as there have been humans those humans have been sharing ideas. Ogg and the chieftain Kroup'!tun met around a camp fire and told stories, shared food, and exchanged a slightly better way to sharpen a stick. Ogg left with a necklace and a flint...

Reparations are Racist and Wrong – Post#508

Reparations are Racist and Wrong - Post#508
This is a tactic of the political class that we should always pay attention to. They say things that pretty well everyone can agree to but leave off the solutions they propose because they know that people won't agree on those. We aren't as divided in the country as people thing. We agree on most things. It's what to do about those things that causes contention. Let's break down a little from Whit...

Episode 59 – Black History Month Racism Run Amok

Episode 59 - Black History Month Racism Run Amok
It seems no matter where I look I see people telling me to pay attention to race and skin color. They want me to watch shows from a certain skin color and even buy from certain vendors because they have a certain skin color. I have been taught my entire life that this was racism but people are acting like it isn't. They are wrong.

Racism Exists Because People Won’t Let it Die

A girl holds up a sign saying justice for floyd with his face on it
I had a conversation about racism the other day that was quite eye opening for me. I will get to that, and another story, in a moment. Systematic or institutional racism does not exist. A conclusion like this should be logical. It certainly isn't the first time it has been put forth but like so many things that become "true" people cling to the idea. When people try to explain their objections t...

Is immigration about racism or respect?

No human being is illegal
The below video explains correctly that in the early days of America there was no such thing as illegal immigration and that we had open borders. What was controlled was not who came here but who was a citizen. That's why naturalization was originally the purview of the federal government and immigration was up to each state. That changed relatively soon after the nation's founding with legal meas...

The Black Klansman, Based on a True Story

davechappeleklan
This new Spike Lee movie is based on a true story. A black police officer in the late 1970's went undercover and infiltrated the KKK. Sounds like a Dave Chappelle sketch I know, but it really happened. He made contact over the phone and built a relationship that way. Then, when it came time to meet with them a white officer stood in for him. https://youtu.be/pFc6I0rgmgY Today, the KKK is a v...

“This Is America” Preachy PC Art or Honest Opinion on America?

My comments here are less about the video and more about the author of this editorial's comments. He writes, "Didacticism is the art of balkanization and tribalism. That’s because it shouts the same message over and over again, it appeals only to those who already want to hear it and repels those who don’t. You will see exactly the same thing with “This Is America.” Those who are inclined to write...

Black Professors in America Can be Racist too 

As you know I think racism is stupid. Just, dumb. It requires one to suspend intellect and caring at the same time. There is nothing about it that is redeeming at all ever. I've also said that goes both ways. Racism on the part of minorities does exist and is equally as stupid. This editorial is from a black professor and starts out, "Dear Nigger Professor." That was the beginning of a message tha...

Racism within Racism and the Danger of Frustration

There's so much wrong with the below article to me. First off is the notion of a "black freedom struggle". What's wrong with that? These aren't blacks in some other country, it's Americans. They are free. They can move about the country, work, play, get jobs, be on TV, become president. If that doesn't suit you, if that level of freedom doesn't suit you, I'm telling you now to wake up, it's all th...

Black Lives Matter | Make this Christmas a Black Xmas

black woman in BLM tshirt
Have any of you ever doubted for one moment that black lives do matter? Did you have to be told? There are those who wonder why people are offended at the name "Black Lives Matter". Well, it's because it's insulting and racist. It insults the integrity of people and singles out one race. That it is racist is made clear by the efforts of the group. Take this latest, a "Black Xmas". The idea ...

The Racist Right Looks Left

Richard Spencer
I don't talk about the Alt-Right very often. There are a few reasons for this. First off, they just make me very uncomfortable and angry. When I read the things they say and write it wells up within me a certain emotion I am most uncomfortable with. It's that emotion called frustration. I have often said frustration is the most powerful of all human emotions. Frustrated people are by far the most ...

Libertarianism and the Alt-Right: a Connection and a Cartoon

Alt-Right Cartoon
Liberty Hangout posted this cartoon recently then deleted it. I wrote out a comment then when I clicked to post I got the message - it was gone. That was a shame as far as I'm concerned because the cartoon provides a lot to discuss. Regardless how one thinks I feel this cartoon lends a talking point that is great for discussion. The cartoon is not so great if you want to have just one particular d...

Firefighter fired over racist fruit

Water Mellon
This story is about a probationary firefighter. He has a name, but we'll call him "the white guy". He gets transferred to his station house. It is a tradition among the fire fighters that the new guy brings a gift. So the white guy brings a really big and juicy watermelon with a bow on top. Turns out most (but not all) of the other firemen were black. I'm sure you can see the problem. The Whi...

DAMNATION! Jesse Jackson claims Trump not going to Heaven over immigration

Jesse Jackson
Recently the ever less relevant Jesse Jackson made a speech in which he said, “The Department of Justice and the current administration are undermining Dr. King’s Dream. We are marching to reaffirm that religious leaders will recommit to being at the forefront of social justice and civil rights.”   It's sad when dead people, who can't speak for themselves, have words put in their mouth. Ar...

Your Skin Color Does NOT Make You Special

Man with Confederate Flag
Your race, whatever it is, is nothing to be proud of. That's because you didn't do anything to become a part of it. It takes no skill, talent, work, or special effort on your part. It's unearned as it were. It simply happens to you. It's collectivist nonsense. Ayn Rand put it well when she wrote, "Racism is a doctrine of, by and for brutes. It is a barnyard or stock-farm version of collectivism...
