So pretty much everything is racist now

Yes gun targets are now, well, you know

GUNS.com-

The No More Black Targets campaign argues that shooting ranges and instructors should not use “menacing” black targets, and is petitioning to end the practice, citing trigger bias.

“Young black men are 3X more likely to be shot by trained shooters than their white peers,” notes the site for the campaign. “A disturbing potential correlation: The most popular target for shooters to learn to use their firearm is a black silhouette. Unconscious bias can be deadly.”

Good Freaking Grief! But perhaps the most asinine claim is this

The group references a study by University of Illinois researchers that concluded shooters were more likely to fire at a black target.

One of the researhers in that study, Yara Mekawi, told National Public Radio in 2015 that people were “quicker to shoot black targets with a gun relative to white targets with a gun. And…people were more trigger-happy when shooting black targets compared to shooting white targets.”

 

The further indoctrination of our kids

Via The Daily Caller

The Caucus of Working Educators, a branch of a teachers union, wants educators to wear Black Lives Matter gear in the classroom and teach lessons based on the movement, reports ABC News.

The themes for the lessons vary day to day. Jan. 23’s lessons are supposed to cover ideas of “restorative justice, empathy and loving engagement,” while Jan. 24 will deal with diversity and globalism.

In other words Marxism, social justice, and propaganda about how racist America and its police forces are. Go read it all, and you will likely come to the conclusion that this is nothing more than indoctrination into radical left values. Please recall that BLM was forged based on a lies, the lies about Trayvon Martin being hunted down, the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie. The movement is infested with radicals, racists, and is backed by George Soros, a rabidly anti-American radical himself.

I have no problem teaching students about BLM, but I want the truth taught, not propaganda.

If you are skeptical, consider the 13 principles that BLM claims to be founded upon.

Do not expect to see anything remotely resembling a call to address the out of wedlock birthrate in the Black community. Or for a call for Blacks to leave gangs, and stop killing other Blacks Over 90% of Blacks killed are killed by Black people, usually young Black men with illegal firearms. Do not look for a call to reign in the disproportionate rate of violent crime committed by young Black men. Do not look for any call for anything that might actually save Black lives, or improve living conditions in the inner city. Those things just are not important to BLM.

Here is one you might find interesting Emphasis mine

BLACK VILLAGES

We are committed to disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, and especially “our” children to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable.

So, with a lack of Black fathers being a large issue in the inner cities, BLM wants to further “disrupt” the traditional family?

All the other principles are based in Marxism. Heather Mac Donald offers some important insight

For almost two years, a protest movement known as “Black Lives Matter” has convulsed the nation. Triggered by the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in August 2014, the Black Lives Matter movement holds that racist police officers are the greatest threat facing young black men today. This belief has triggered riots, “die-ins,” the murder and attempted murder of police officers, a campaign to eliminate traditional grand jury proceedings when police use lethal force, and a presidential task force on policing.

Even though the U.S. Justice Department has resoundingly disproven the lie that a pacific Michael Brown was shot in cold blood while trying to surrender, Brown is still venerated as a martyr. And now police officers are backing off of proactive policing in the face of the relentless venom directed at them on the street and in the media. As a result, violent crime is on the rise.

The need is urgent, therefore, to examine the Black Lives Matter movement’s central thesis—that police pose the greatest threat to young black men. I propose two counter hypotheses: first, that there is no government agency more dedicated to the idea that black lives matter than the police; and second, that we have been talking obsessively about alleged police racism over the last 20 years in order to avoid talking about a far larger problem—black-on-black crime.

This is an excellent source that exposes the Black Lives Matter scam. Go read it all, and pass it around. In closing let me add this from Mac Donald, it is powerful

Who are some of the victims of elevated urban crime? On March 11, 2015, as protesters were once again converging on the Ferguson police headquarters demanding the resignation of the entire department, a six-year-old boy named Marcus Johnson was killed a few miles away in a St. Louis park, the victim of a drive-by shooting. No one protested his killing. Al Sharpton did not demand a federal investigation. Few people outside of his immediate community know his name.

Ten children under the age of ten were killed in Baltimore last year. In Cleveland, three children five and younger were killed in September. A seven-year-old boy was killed in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend by a bullet intended for his father. In November, a nine-year-old in Chicago was lured into an alley and killed by his father’s gang enemies; the father refused to cooperate with the police. In August, a nine-year-old girl was doing her homework on her mother’s bed in Ferguson when a bullet fired into the house killed her. In Cincinnati in July, a four-year-old girl was shot in the head and a six-year-old girl was left paralyzed and partially blind from two separate drive-by shootings. This mindless violence seems almost to be regarded as normal, given the lack of attention it receives from the same people who would be out in droves if any of these had been police shootings.

Yet, none of this matters to Black Lives Matter? I implore everyone to ask why, and then consider what IS behind BLM? 

 

Rise of the new “tolerant” Fascists: Does this emoji make me look racist?

The newest “trigger” for the modern day Brown Shirts is, it seems, something called “Cultural Appropriation”. This appropriation, and the Leftist freak out that follows, occurs when someone dares cook a dish or style their hair in a way that is deemed to belong to a certain race or color. Some examples include anyone who is not Black cooking greens, or fried chicken, or other Southern dishes. This is idiotic of course, because Southern is not a color, and Southerners of all races have been eating such foods for generations. It is also asinine because no Southerner in their right mind gets offended if a Yankee decides to make cornbread, collards and fried pork chops. Why the Hell would we get offended, if anything such an act would be a compliment. Further, why should we be putting up barriers between ethnicities and cultures? Is this not the polar opposite of being color blind? 

Today, however, being color-blind is no longer a value the Left espouses. In fact, the opposite is true. Now, being a person who judges people based on shared ideals and values rather than race are smeared as racists. It is the politics of division the Left champions now. It has even gotten so bad that, as actress, Ellen Pompeo found out that White people using “Black” emojis are attacked for RAAAAACISM!

Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo has been criticized by woke social justice warriors after using black emojis on Twitter, with some users accusing her of overstepping her bounds as “a privileged white woman”.

It all started after the actress praised the A&E network for changing the title of its documentary about the Ku Klux Klan from “Generation KKK” to “Escaping the KKK: A Documentary Series Exposing Hate in America.” Pompeo thanked the network for “caring enough to make changes” adding black clapping and thumbs-up emojis.

No, this is not from The Onion, or any other parody site folks, this outbreak of racial Obsession Syndrome actually happened over, yes emojis!

One user, who has since set her account private, wrote: “It’s not fair to see a privileged white woman use [people of color] emojis just because you can.”

“It comes off as really obnoxious,” she added.

Obnoxious you say? As obnoxious as attacking someone because they do not segregate their emojis? REALLY! But, this miscreant was not alone in her outrageously outrageous outrage! Pompeo, being a reasonable person offered up this tweet

Of course, she was answered with more “tolerance”

This sparked further tweets directed at the actress accusing her of racism. After she said that it’s “sad to see racism is still alive and well on all sides,” people attacked her suggesting reverse-racism is real. One person wrote: “reverse racism isn’t real. White people don’t experience racism”.

To which Pompeo replied saying “I’ve been called a white B**** and countless other things 50000 times today what would you call it?”

Despite this, the people continued ganging up on the actress, saying “you literally said reverse racism exist JUST APOLOGIZE AND LOG OFF stop embarrassing and contradicting yourself”.

See? Tolerance! This is what the Left’s incessant message of identity politics, and grievance mongering has wrought. People so consumed with bigotry and bitterness that they attack people based on nothing more being the wrong color. I feel badly for Pompeo, she seems like a nice person, but being nice, nor being a Liberal are of any use when you transgress against the new Brown Shirts! Not at all. You must walk the line, or else! Of course, there is a positive here. The more the unhinged Left acts out the more Americans will reject such despicable attitudes and bigotry which permeate the Left.

Family of violent, armed thug outraged that police are allowed to defend themselves

Via Bearing Arms

Convicted drug trafficker Frank “Scooterbug” Clark was shot and killed by Durham Police earlier this week after he reached for a gun in his waistband after being confronted by cops, and his family and allies are really mad that violent felons aren’t treated with more respect by officers who know they are violent, woman-abusing drug dealers.

Family and friends are voicing their frustrations and concerns one day after police shot and killed a Durham man.

Frank Nathaniel Clark, 34, died after being shot during a struggle with three officers. Durham Police Chief C.J. Davis said the officers – Charles Barkley, Monte Southerland and Christopher Goss – stopped to talk to Clark when he reached for a gun in his waistband and they heard a shot.

About a dozen demonstrators marched a little over a mile from Fayetteville Road, near the McDougald Terrace community where Clark was shot, to Durham Police Headquarters, voicing their concerns about what they describe as a broken relationship between Durham police officers and the community.

The demonstrators took their call for justice to the front door of police headquarters before returning to the street and forming a circle in the middle of Chapel Hill Street, shutting down the intersection between Duke Street and Gregson Street.

“Not only do I want change, the community wants change too,” said Clark’s brother, Michael Clark.

Michael Clark said he and his brother, who was known to the community as “Bug,” grew up in the McDougald Terrace neighborhood. He said he wants Durham police officers to be more respectful to residents and that many who joined the march feel intimidated by police.

“The physical contact with the community, how they go about it; there’s another way instead of just hopping out, saying ‘put your hands up’, searching and patting you down for guns,” Michael Clark said.

There is also another way for people with long records of beating women, carrying illegal weapons and, dealing drugs to conduct themselves isn’t there? How about not pulling your illegal firearm on police? How about respect for law enforcement from the “community”? After all, the police are trying to protect innocent people from thugs like Clark. Consider this quote from the news article

“This community deserves safety and community policing has not created more safety. It has led directly to the death of Frank Clark,” said demonstrator Serena Sebring.

Hmmm, it seems Clark was the type of person that makes these communities unsafe. And, to be blunt, Clark caused his own death by pulling his illegal weapon on police. So, my suggestion to these protesters would be to stop excusing bad behavior. Stop blaming police for doing their jobs. If the police can improve their tactics, then fine. But, the excusing of criminals and thugs must stop.

The Mental Malfunctions of Leftism

Today, the Left has so perverted the definition of racism, that the only way to not be racist, is to be overtly racist somehow.

White students at Pomona College have launched a new student group dedicated to “owning our racism” and “deconstructing our whiteness.”

The organization—which calls itself “We’ve Got Work To Do: White People for Deconstructing Whiteness”—held its inaugural gathering Tuesday evening on Pomona’s campus, though students from all five schools in the Claremont College consortium are welcome to join.

“This is a group for White people at the 5C’s to work on owning our racism, deconstructing our Whiteness, and to engage in movement & action toward dismantling White Supremacy,” the organization explains on its Facebook page.

“Recognizing that White identity is a self-fashioned, hierarchical fantasy, Whites should attempt to dismantle Whiteness as it currently exists,” the description adds, drawing from a selection in the book Critical Race Theory: The Cutting Edge. “Whites should renounce their privileged racial character, though not simply out of guilt or any sense of self-deprecation. Rather, they should dismantle the edifice of Whiteness because this mythological construct stands at the vortex of racial inequality in America.”

This is self-loathing delusion, nothing more. The end result of years of indoctrination is as disturbing as it can be. There can be nothing more racist than demented blatherings such as this. This is solely about stamping every person of a certain race as despicable, and inherently flawed. There was a time when being color blind was honored by liberals. Now, to be color blind will get you described as a racist monster somehow. As I have written before, the Left latches on to just causes, like ending racism, and slowly perverts that cause into a new way to poison minds, divide people, and, of course further Collectivist thinking. One time Liberals fought racism, now, they perpetuate it

Dear Van Jones, shut the Hell up!

Redefining  pathetic. This Communist does nothing but divide, divide, and divide some more, he cries about racism while acting in a racist fashion himself. Many things elected Trump. Dislike of Hillary, a sickness of the elites, and yes, a push back against the race hustlers like Van Jones, who is too stupid to even grasp that it is he who is the bigot

Liberals and their history-free history

My Great-Great-Grandfather Allan Dean McWhorter fought Yankees with the 4th South Carolina Cavalry during the War of Northern Aggression. He was a “guest” at Point Lookout Prison Camp in Maryland, where conditions were horrific, with over 3,500 prisoners dying in the over crowded Hell hole in less than two years. So, I suppose Grandaddy Mac, as my Grandfather called him was lucky to get out alive. Anyway, I thought of my ancestor, one of many who fought for the Confederacy when I read this today

A South Carolina college is hosting a Confederate history event—but has banned the Confederate flag from being displayed.

York Technical College entered into a contract leasing space on campus to the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) for a convention in March 2017, and almost immediately after the information became public knowledge the school fell under intense scrutiny.

According to The Herald, the area NAACP chapter and other local citizens expressed concern that the Confederate flag would be publicly displayed and create controversy, arguing that a public institution should not agree to host any group that promotes the banner.

Oh, but of course the Leftist race baiters at the NAACP would take any opportunity to agitate and divide people instead of trying to fix actual problems facing Black Americans. Face it the NAACP makes bank on RAAAAACISM, even if they have to fabricate it, and their cash cow must be protected.

Local NAACP leaders were also at the conference, and assured the crowd they would be seeking legal counsel.

Member Jacques Days said the NAACP would hold York Tech accountable to its promise of prohibiting Confederate flags, but he also told the crowd there is still a possibility York Tech would not have to actually honor the contract, though he did not specify how that might be accomplished.

Days emphasized that the NAACP’s goal is to completely stop the convention from happening, citing the Confederate flag’s status as a symbol of “divisive history” and “division, racism, and hatred.”

See? History-free history! Stalin would be very proud. Again the Left shows itself to be an ideology of intellectual cowardice and an ideology of lies, and liars. Face it, if the bottom feeders at the NAACP were so sure history was on their side, they would welcome this event. Instead they seek, again, to erase history rather than to discuss or debate it. And, if the NAACP cared, truly cared about black people, they would be fighting to correct the obscene out of wedlock birth rate, the high violent crime rate, Black on Black murder, gangs, and other pertinent issues. That they are fighting to censor or silence historical events tells you every last thing you need to know about the NAACP
