    I can't see an end to racism as long as there are different rules for different groups of people. It feels like It's a chicken & egg problem, special consideration is given to group A because they are disadvantaged so group B views group A as different. I truly don't know how this ever gets resolved.

    Racism will always exist simply because it always has. People inherently group each other by different traits, forming in-groups and out-groups. Anyone not in a particular in-group gets treated differently, which could be racism but not necessarily.

    The problem currently is that Critical Race Theory (CRT) and the ideas coming out of it, such as "White privilege," are racist. Fighting racism with racism will always result in more racism. CRT and its proponents are moving society backwards in regards to racism.

    Beautiful place but a complete mess now with all the mismanagement and corruption of the past 10 years.

    When will Antifa get a manager like Bobby The Brain Heenan and Proud Boys can get a manager like Jimmy The Mouth Of The South Hart so that this circus can truly call itself a circus?

    They could both try to use Hulk Hogan's theme music and that would trigger the "brawl" to start.

    Another Wendy Mesley type situation, this time when a school principal asks as group of students why it’s ok for them to use the word ni**er. Students get suspended for violating the schools code of conduct (not for using the word, but for unauthorized recording) and the CBC finds some activist to say that it’s not ok to police the use of the word if it’s spoken by a black person

    https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calga...ents-1.5745427
    I try to stay out of these discussions but my father in law just told me about this and its complete BS that the principal could get any backlash. If anything they need more people like her because she actually cares enough to try and stop them from using that word.

    Maybe teachers should have bodycams like cops? Actually, students too.

    and I did not have the only say in the matter (most people just want it done ASAP and don't care about quality).

    If anything we made a better decision because we had a consensus and were all on the same page.

    That's a really good video. At the very least Lane appeared to be trying to help Floyd.

    NYT did an investigation based on the interview videos, scene photos and transcripts and put together what happened. It's quite interesting:

    Takeaways:
    Ultimately, the main, undeniable conclusion is that one officer erred in committing a cardinal sin of gun safety: firing your gun without seeing what you're aiming at.
    There remains lots of doubt on whether the police identified themselves.
    No mention of why none of the 6 executing officers didn't have a body camera recording

    I always felt there was a huge bias to rewarding overconsumption. The USA is the epitome of overconsumption.

    White people work better when they are given massive amounts of resources to finish a project, regardless of damage or cost. Asian people work better when they have limited resources.

    Give an Asian engineer two cents of electricity and task her with delivering 100 pounds of groceries 10 miles, and she will come up with a solution. The white guy will simply say its not possible or is a stupid idea - just use more fuel.

    As for blacks, they are definitely not on the side of overconsumption to achieve goals either. No megaprojects in Africa, no grand schemes. The main problem with overconsumption is that if you burn 2 million tons of fuel to get 100 pounds of iron - is that really helping anyone other than the first person you pay to go get it?

    BTW: on two cents per 100 pound delivery, a loaf of bread should cost what? 35 cents? No wonder Galen is a 10 Billionaire. Give an Asian programmer a 16K HDTV video, and they will find a way to put it on a cellular network for 1/100th of a cent. What is the more valuable ability, and has one been oppressively using their weight.

    Although I will say that I think that Kanye music is also overvalued at $1 Billion.

    Ah China, energy is basically free when you have slaves. Between India and China you have the large majority of polution in the world. Wouldn't be the case if they were such a noble race as described.

    Its all a matter of perception. California is coming around to the idea that overconsumption is just plain dumb. The combustion engine ban pretty much solidifies this position. No doubt Boomers are solidly on the side of more consumption is better, because how would you get to the moon otherwise?

    In many ways, it really doesn't matter what Canada thinks, the USA will dictate demand - and if they say no to the combustion engine, there will start to be talk of removing pipelines instead of building them.

    As for power, do black people in the USA have enough power to dictate demand to demand defunding of police. Hell no, they are barely hanging on from being evicted as is.

    What is actually kind of crazy:

    They are talking about going back to windpower for overseas shipping. Serious. As is now, you can burn oil and get something from China to North America in three weeks. But if you are already waiting three weeks, what is four months? As long as it isn't perishable food, is it really that much of a wait to get your Kandi? Completely emissionless even with shipping is not impossible.

    What does this have to do with BLM, probably nothing.

    We have come full circle.

    Couldn't have been more fitting to have a thread that ran in circles about a movement that achieved nothing, be put to bed by Zenops with some random shit. Bravo!

    Is there anyone on here that is a visible minority with respect to skin colour that sees this move as reasonable / positive or is it just plain old virtue signalling?

    Finally I can enjoy my Saturday breakfast free at last, free at last, thank God almighty I can eat my pancakes free at last, of guilt.

    (Ok, racism is a huge issue yes. I do wonder though if THIS was actually seen as oppression by the regular unwashed masses?)
