Seems to me, we are going backwards in race relations.
The goal was to integrate and to have skin color become meaningless.
I’m told that I shouldn’t judge people based upon their skin color and I do not do this. I do judge based upon accents, though. lol
So…no judgment based upon skin color.
Yet, I still see an ever expanding set of distinctions for awards based solely upon color.
Black Engineer of the Year Award Black Athlete of the Year Award Black Entertainer of the Year Award
Is there something about engineering that is specific to the color a person’s skin?
I know what the reaction would be if some organization created a White Engineer of the Year Award. It would be derided as racist, WHITE SUPREMACISTS, horrific…the organization would be boycotted, canceled and much gnashing of teeth and great lamentations to the heavens would be set upon the idiotic social media world and by those minions who live their life electronically and no where else.
I remember an interview with Barry Gordy from the 70s. He said something to the effect that the goal of Motown was not to produce the Best Black Entertainers or the Best Black Music. His goal was to produce the BEST MUSIC and BEST ENTERTAINERS in the world.
According to racial equality activist Richard Lapchick, the NBA in 2020 was composed of 74.2 percent black players, 16.9 percent white players, 2.2 percent Latino players of any race, and 0.4 percent Asian players.
Since the NBA is a majority Black American Organization, are we going to start giving special awards to the NBA’s minority communities?
Best Asian Male Athlete Best LGBTQ+ Non-European Male Athlete Best Athlete of European Descent Best International Athlete Best Arab Athlete Best Chinese Athlete Best Indian Athlete Best Han Chinese Athlete Best Southeast Asian Athlete Best Atheist Athlete Best Muslim Athlete Best Mormon Athlete Best Yazidi Athlete Best Armenian Athlete Best Indo-Aryan Athlete Best Pacific Islander Athlete Best Native American Athlete
NOTE: I purposely left out any mention of White so as not to be called a White Supremacist. That is the only skin color that, apparently, cannot be mentioned without much angst amongst the minions of the social media world.
I have no issue with BLM as a movement. The loose organization that wants Blacks to be treated with respect by Police. I’ve got too many Black friends and I’ve researched Police and LEO corruption a good deal. I know there are issues with Police. I do not completely agree with the BLM movement and believe that it is inherently divisive and, often, achieves much the opposite of its intent. That said, I understand the appeal of the name based on the history of Black Americans in the US.
That said, the organization known as BLM is marxist scum.
It’s easy to conflate the two and difficult to separate them.
It’s a difficult conundrum for young Black Americans and, really, any Black American.
And it’s all too easy for non-Black Americans to dismiss the issue. It is especially easy for White Americans who don’t actually interact with Black Americans except on a superficial level such as being a fan of Kentucky.
Most White Americans have very little interaction with Black Americans. It’s not anyone’s fault. It just is. The average White American is clueless as to the Black experience in America. They know only what they see on TV or read on social media and all of that is caricature and some level of hyperbole.
“I could have done it today, but I’m giving these guys that are in front of him the room that they need to be able to miss shots,” Calipari said.
He said that!
When asked why he isn’t giving more PT to Dontiae Allen. Allen, who average 40 plus in high school and redshirted last year, has been glued to the pine this year. Allen will be another in a long line of transfers out of the program who go on to become scoring threats at places like UCLA, Arizona and Illinois.
Why? Because Cal won’t play or develop his non Five Star players.
And that has led the Kentucky Wildcats program to where we are today.
1 win against a nobody and 4 losses against real competition and 1 loss to Richmond. Thank the Gods the Detroit Mercy game was mercifully canceled. Cal’s Golden Boys may have been given the room they need to lose that game as well. Kentucky may not win another game this year. This team would probably lose to Robert Morris. This team is worse than the Gillispie teams. Cal has lost his way.
And Cal will spend all year spewing stupidity such as that above and wondering why his program has not continuity.
Another year like this and I’ll be ready to part ways with Cal.
No, I don’t think that COVID 19 is not real. It is. It’s real.
That said, it is a Leftist Scam.
It was a biological weapon used by the Left against that idiot Trump who never quite understood that positivity would be used against him. Trump never understood that no matter what happened, no matter how many people died, the Left MSM was going to blame him.
98+ percent of the population will never be affected physically by COVID 19. However, the Democrats made sure that COVID would affect negatively every living human being in America.
Democrats are the greatest evil in the history of mankind.
Poor, wretched, and stupid peoples, nations determined on your own misfortune and blind to your own good! You let yourselves be deprived before your own eyes of the best part of your revenues; your fields are plundered, your homes robbed, your family heirlooms taken away. You live in such a way that you cannot claim a single thing as your own; and it would seem that you consider yourselves lucky to be loaned your property, your families, and your very lives.”
