Meanwhile, Yale's Divinity School is now home to Black Lives Matter movement agitator DeRay Mckesson who was awarded a sinecure to promote the violent racist movement.what a world! here's a teacher at major US university inciting criminal violence. and denying violence is violent on the basis that it also has the purpose of expressing anger.
“Looting for me isn’t violent, it’s an expression of anger,” the guest lecturer recently preached to students. “The act of looting is political. Another way to dissolve consent. Pressing you to no longer keep me out of this space, by destroying it.”
he advocates destruction, which he claims will help get invites into the kinds of spaces that are attacked.
and he's not getting fired for this stuff. he got hired for it!
this is very dangerous. people are getting hurt. more will be hurt. and not very many are doing a good job of standing up against it.
two standout organizations defending civilization are Front Page Magazine and Breitbart News.
A few good comments from https://www.reddit.com/r/dataisbeautiful/comments/5fle47/frequency_of_the_word_racism_in_new_york_times/
> the phase "people of color" is equally as silly. To lump in everyone who's not white as a single group is lunacy. A Chinese person has zero in common physically, socially and culturally with a black person. It probably is the most striking example of identity politics and the most desperate. Other than the usual suspects you see on Reddit or twitter. I don't see anyone other than white liberals or black people use the term. If I called my Vietnamese friend a "person of color" he'd probably hit me.
Yeah. If "person of color" were just a synonym for "non-white", that would be one thing, but it's often used in a dishonest way to imply a false similarity between different groups of people. For example, Japanese on average have much different experiences in America than blacks who in turn have different experiences than hispanics.
> Whenever the topic of "diversity" comes up at work I always feel a little bad for the Chinese and Indian guys because it's pretty much implied that diversity isn't really about them.
"Diversity" is another word that seems to be used in an dishonest way, rather than the original dictionary definition.
> I hate 'reverse racisim'... like wtf. You mean regular racism?
