Do tell, what is the leading cause of obstructive sleep apnea again?

Systemic racism of course.

Could be more to this but it apparently asking a black person where they're from is racist and an act of violence now.

I'm a white person and I've lost count of the number of times I've been asked where I'm from. It would seem that this charity boss doesn't want to be treated the way white people are.
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

Equal treatment: old, busted, and raciss.

Equity: it's anti-racist (meaning special privileges for non-whites)

Shark Week has too many white men

Quote
    [Allegheny College biology professor Lisa] Whitenack led a team of researchers to examine hundreds of “Shark Week” episodes that aired between 1988 and 2020. In a study published last month by the Public Library of Science, their research claims that Discovery’s programming emphasized negative messages about sharks, lacked useful messaging about shark conservation and overwhelmingly featured White men as experts — including several with the same name.

    The programming featured more White experts and commentators named “Mike” than women, said David Shiffman, a conservationist at Arizona State University who was a co-author of the stud

Serves Cameron right. I think I was reading the other day where he went on a rant about the poison that is testosterone.

Apparently the Hollywood play book nowadays is insult and attack your audience and when they don't go see your movie insult and attack them some more.

What I remember from grammar school art class is that white is comprised all ALL the colors, whereas black is the absence  of any color. So, unless my grammar school teachers were lying to us, it would seem more logical for whites to play blue people than for blacks to play blue people.

And if black is the absence of color ... how are blacks "people of color"? Shouldn't blacks be "people of no color"?

Except that nobody is "white" and nobody is "black". We're all just different shades of brown, from very dark to very pale.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Brown is actually a dark yellow. Many people of European ancestry would be considered pink, making them light redskins. (Until they spend some time in the sun.) Albinos would be an extremely light shade of pink, and I don't think they tan very well.

I've seen angry Orientals turn kind of a funny shade of orange. (Time for a comment about a former POTUS?)

As for coloration of aliens and comic characters . . . blue, green, it's all racist of course. Like everything else.

Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

I have not seen the new movie, but I am pretty sure the native wife of the hero from the 1st movie is a black actress. 

That said, it is just a cartoon.

Apple watches

Quote
New York man filed a class-action lawsuit against Apple on Dec. 24, alleging that the Apple Watch's blood oximeter has a "racial bias" against individuals with darker skin tones.

The Blood Oxygen app is available on Apple Watch Series 6 and newer and can "measure the oxygen level of your blood on-demand directly from your wrist, providing you with insights into your overall wellness," Apple explains.

New York resident Alex Morales alleges that he purchased an Apple Watch between 2020 and 2021, and was aware that the watch "purported to measure blood oxygen levels and he believed it did this without regard to skin tone," according to the lawsuit, which was filed in the Southern District of New York.

Without knowing more my guess is in reality it's just harder to get an "accurate" reading with darker skin tone so racism!
