The term “people of color“ exists to distill diversity in favor of excluding one specific group.
The term “people of color” has gained quite a bit of popularity among the intersectional groups on the left. Now, for those of you who have studied history at any level, it should immediately strike you how similar it sounds to the old racist term “colored people”.
This term comes on the heels of a well-known group, black lives matter, pushing racial tension and even going so far as to get some colleges to segregate their dorms based on race. It’s OK to advertise events that say “no white people allowed”. It’s even OK to be deeply racist, and have it documented over the course of five years, and still get hired by the New York Times. It’s OK because it’s against white people.
See, there is a common thread these days: white people are the devil, and everybody needs to fight against it. The term people of color works to simplify that. The term doesn’t just encompass black people. “People of color” can mean black, Mexican, Asian, Indian, Native American, or Polynesian. It means anything but white. It is not an inclusive term, it is a specifically exclusive term. It allows the people of earth to combine into two teams: White, and not White.
That’s the point. That is the whole point of that term existing.
Here’s the rub: have you ever met and spent a lot of time with a Ugandan, a Kenyan, and a Jamaican? I have. The word black doesn’t even encompass those three people. There is a world of difference between those three cultures, and to boil them down to the word black would be an insult. To further boil them down to “people of color” would be far worse. To the intersectionals, though, the Ugandan and the Jamaican are exactly the same as the Chinese and the Mexican, because they are not the white devil.
On that note, you would be hard-pressed to find a Pakistani who is the same as an Iranian. Find a person from Sweden who is the same as a person from Arizona. Here’s one for you; find an Inuit who is the same as an Apache.
It is an insult to all of these people’s diverse cultures to boil them down into any sort of general language.
The sanitization and changing and generalizing of language is always used to control. They say that it is used to be inclusive, or to spare certain people’s feelings, but when it really comes down to it, it is about control.
Do not be controlled. Do not be divided. Beyond that, don’t even begin to suggest that someone from Kenya is the same thing as a Native American, other than being human.
The New York Times recently hired a prolific racist. When presented with evidence, they chose to defend her and her racism rather than do what is right. This is a five-year documentation of her racism.
The New York Times recently hired a woman named Sarah Jeong. The hiring of this woman was controversial not simply due to the woman’s impressive history of racism, but due to the fact that even when presented with evidence, the New York Times chose to defend her.
I’m sure you’re wondering, how racist could she have been? It couldn’t have been more than one or two things, or the New York Times certainly would not have hired her or defended her. Not only was it more than one or two things, it was more than one or two things spread over the course of five years.
Now, for a little backstory: her defense about this level of racism was that she was simply responding to white racists in like fashion. The mistake she made here was not deleting her Twitter before making that claim. What you are about to see is a shocking level of racism from one single person.
Let’s start with 2013.
Wow, what a trip. Pretty amazing that all that got through, right? If you’re already shocked, I recommend going and getting your pearls, because you’re about to clutch them harder than you’ve ever clutched in your life.
As we move on to 2014, you might notice that it is somewhat more voluminous than the previous year. She starts by joking about a little kid getting shot in an airport. It’s funny ’cause he’s white.
What a trip! Amazingly, her Twitter account survived that year. While 2014 was obviously the most prolific out of these years, you’ll notice that while she gets better, she doesn’t stop.
Now you may ask yourself, how does somebody go three years being so racist without anybody noticing? For your answer, I would direct you to the body of work of Tariq Nasheed. Some people just get the privilege of flying below the radar.
…Anyway, let’s move onto 2017.
Now that we have seen her secret catalog of work on the subject of race, obviously we can understand why Twitter ended up verifying her and the New York Times not only hired, but then defended her. That reason? Excellent journalism.
At this time, I would like to thank Nick Monroe for taking the six hours to dig through her profile and find all of her racist tweets. Donald Trump is pilloried for saying one or two things over the course of a number of decades. We know that Richard Spencer is a racist, yet nobody can produce an amount of evidence to show his racism to equal what is shown here about Sarah Jeong.
When Chris Rock said “it’s alright ’cause it’s all white”, he certainly didn’t have this in mind.
I suppose the question I would leave you all with is this: didn’t somebody once say that if you associate with racists that you are a racist? What sort of publication is the New York Times these days, then?
Just saying, it goes both ways.
Some people have to go through great tribulation or means in order to become a target of public ridicule. Some people have to change their gender after hitting someone with their car. Others decide to live life as a gay man after being caught molesting children.
This story, however, is about a woman who could not get enough ridicule. No matter what she did, and no matter how much the public disliked her, she wanted more. She would do anything to get as much ridicule as she possibly could. She wanted her credibility to be the lowest on the entire planet. So, she persisted.
Though she didn’t want to, she defended a rapist in a case in the beginning of her career as a lawyer. The man had raped a little girl, and the woman did not want to defend this man. She was, however, told doing it would mean she had a career. Not doing it would mean the end of her career. She knew that she would be considered a patsy, and weak, and those in power would know that they could use her for whatever they wanted, but she persisted. The rapist won the case, and the little girl’s life was destroyed. The woman, years later, would laugh about it.
Her husband was embroiled in a case in which he, while wielding great amount of power, used it to sexually assault the people working underneath him. She could probably stop him, but that would mean being one of the good guys. She couldn’t have that! She knew she would lose credibility, and would be mocked, nevertheless, she persisted. He was removed from his job, and the two of them created a mafia.
An earthquake destroyed an island! Many people were hurt, and many buildings were destroyed. By this time, the woman and her husband had more than enough money to help these people out, and their mafia had embezzled enough funds to make sure that the island could be back at full capacity immediately. She could easily solve their problems. Nevertheless, she persisted. Setting up fundraisers, and skimming the money off the top, they left the island destitute. Their mafia was becoming known for destroying lives.
A chance to become president! Who wouldn’t want that? Everybody wants to be president. Well, decent people don’t want to be president, but they do it because they know nobody else will do it properly. This woman, however, would absolutely not do it properly. It was certainly going to be another vehicle for her mafia to grow in influence.
She swore at her bodyguards. She fell down stairs. She was thrown into a van like a side of beef. Nevertheless, she persisted. She simply could not allow her credibility to grow.
After her presidential bid was lost, she noticed that her credibility wasn’t as low as she wanted it to be. She began to wear a back brace, clumsily hiding it under ill fitting clothing so people would know it was there, but they would also know she was hiding it.
She fell down some stairs. She broke her ankle and her wrist.
Still, universities kept inviting her to speak. They kept treating her like a credible source of information and influence. Nevertheless, she persisted.
“Finally! At last!” she said, “the New York Post has begun speaking ill of me!”
She had finally destroyed her credibility to the point that even her most staunch and long-standing allies were turning against her.
All because she persisted.
It’s 2017, and despite what you’ve heard, things have never been better in the United States. It is so good, in fact, that even the poorest among us are in the top 1% of the entire world. According to the Global Rich List, a website that brings awareness to worldwide income disparities, an income of $32,400 per year will allow you to be part of the world’s top 1%.
With all of this talk of socialism and communism by late teens – early 20s college students, you would think that capitalism is a dud. The talk around college campuses almost suggests that capitalism is dying because of how terribly people are suffering under it. Let’s go ahead and compare the United States, a country that has espoused capitalism since it’s incarnation, to a socialist country. Let’s go one step further, in fact, and use a country that is now socialist that was once capitalist.
Venezuela, once a burgeoning free market economy, enjoying modern successes, became a country where eating your dog is now considered a good option. They adopted socialism under the watchful eye of Hugo Chavez beginning in 2000, and continued with Nicolas Maduro in 2013. For a few years, things were fine. In fact, literacy rates improved and income disparities became less pronounced. As time went on, however, Venezuela’s economy deteriorated, largely due to the lack of a free market and a lack of competition. Despite receiving over $1 trillion in oil revenues since 1999, the government had run out of cash and soon relied heavily on printing money to finance itself. The result? The highest inflation rate in the world. Into thousand 13, the inflation rate was 56%, though numbers suggest that the implied annual inflation rate was actually 330%.
You might say to yourself, America prints money, why don’t we experience the inflation rate that they experienced in Venezuela?
The US Federal Reserve, the central bank of the United States, has the responsibility of maintaining the money supply at the level that the US Federal Reserve considers best for the economy. Maintaining that level requires the US Federal Reserve to create or destroy several billion dollars every single day to ensure the balance.
Socialist countries don’t do this. There is never enough money to go around due to all of the welfare programs that are required to ensure that everyone has what the government deems them to deserve. In order to have the money to pay for all of these programs, the socialist country will simply print more. That sounds all well and good, right?
Sorry grasshopper, it’s not. While there is more money, the bigger pile still only has the value that the smaller pile had, meaning that each individual dollar is now worth less than it once was. These are simplistic terms, but that’s the point.
Now, imagine you have worked all of your life and saved up $1 million. Suddenly, your socialist country decides to print enough money that your $1 million is suddenly only worth $1000. It could turn even the most honest man into a criminal. Imagine then, what the criminals must be doing about all of this.
Venezuela experienced a horrific rise in crime. The country became one of the most dangerous places in the world with almost 25,000 homicides in 2013. A murder rate of 79 killings per 100,000 inhabitants. Videos online showed thieves simply shooting people and taking their backpacks or purses, rather than demanding them.
When things became this bad, the government cast aside any pretense that they had of being a democratic country. Maduro, once content with ruling by word of law, became dictatorial, making sure that all TV stations either belonged to the government or said and did what the government wanted. International networks were blocked from cable and satellite. Opposition radio stations would see their licenses revoked and the newspapers shut down from lack of currency with which to operate.
In the United States, The election in 2016 was a close call. Bernie Sanders, a known socialist, had gained more votes than Hillary Clinton in the primary. Luckily, the DNC did not allow that to deny Hillary the primary win. Sanders, known for stealing from neighbors and having a criminalwife, would have, with the support of millions of inexperienced and naïve college students, steered this great country toward the black hole that is socialism. Many celebrities encouraged voting for Bernie, citing the success Venezuela has had with socialism.
If socialism ever found its grip on the United States, you could rest assured that you would never again be part of the top 1% of the planet.
Despite what suffering you may feel you have, despite what roadblocks might appear in your life, be happy that they are all surmountable. There are still countries in which your birth place might determine your chances of success. Take heed of history and pay attention to the fact that this Country has remained number one for hundreds of years, while giving all of its citizens, even the poorest, better living conditions than anywhere else on the planet.
With the meanings of words changing, and some words being given more power while others are given less, it comes as no surprise that a popular magazine would release an article that appears to attempt to normalize incest.
This article go so far as to change the meaning of incest, however, softening it into genetic sexual attraction. This has been going on for decades, and has even been lampooned in a popular George Carlin rant. Adding softer language to something does not change what it is. Instead, it serves as a line of division with which someone can call themselves proper and another person improper.
Beyond that, it blurs the lines yet again of hate speech. When will come, the first instance in which someone calls it incest, and another person gets offended because they were merely engaging in genetic sexual attraction?
The term “slippery slope” gets thrown around a lot, but in this case it is clear that we are on one.
Kierkegaard said that there will come a time when the only thing we lack is lack. It appears as though we’ve reached that time right now. People in the United States are so privileged and so inundated with things to have in things to make their lives more comfortable, that they are now inventing problems.
Beyond that, when those invented problems are solved, they simply create new problems. The LGBT community is a prime example of this. It used to be that they wanted gay rights. They got them, and then it became about transgender people. OK, go ahead and be transgender. We’ll even make one of you woman of the year. Then, they wanted to pass laws, which were passed in Canada, that force you to change your child into a transgender person if they even mention feeling like the opposite sex. It is also considered hate speech(another made up problem) to misgender someone, even if they have a made up gender such as xir or ze.
It’s classic psychological maneuvering. If I want you to go a mile from where you are and you don’t want to, I’ll do my best to convince you to move an inch. Once I’ve succeeded, I’ll convince you to move another inch. It continues that way until one day you find yourself a mile away from where you started. That’s what’s going on right now with all of these social justice movements.
It seems as though the days are long gone when a person would count their blessings. In the United States, and most other westernized countries, even the poorest citizen is in the top one percent of the world. Americans live in a place that most other people on this earth would gladly give up everything to come to, and many have. There is no other country on earth as sought after as a home than the USA.
Maybe it’s time to count our blessings instead of creating new things to lack.
