If you're applying to Harvard in the first place, don't you think you've already got the bare minimum skill to write succinctly?

Not anymore.

If I were in some hiring capacity at an organization today, I would avoid the Ivy League like the plague. Or at least I would conduct my review in a non-obvious way that would provoke the woke, so I could screen for toxic candidates.

Do they really need any more provoking?

Yeah, they're "provoked" enough.  All they need is the "trigger" to set them off.  >:D  :rofl:

Trump visiting PSA

Quote
    A lot of the media has focused on whether Trump actually purchased a gun and violated the law, but less attention has been paid to Trump’s decision to visit Palmetto State Armory, as opposed to any other gun store in South Carolina.

    In late August, a white man opened fire in a Dollar General store in a predominantly Black Jacksonville neighborhood, killing three people, all of whom were Black. The shooter, who then killed himself, used a Glock handgun and an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, at least one of which was painted with a swastika. Jacksonville Sheriff T.K. Waters said the shooter “hated Black people” and acted alone.

    At least one of the guns came from Palmetto State Armory, a store in Summerville, South Carolina. The Jacksonville sheriff’s office shared photos of the firearms used in the attack on its Facebook page. One of the guns is clearly engraved with the Palmetto State Armory logo. The shooter had also drawn swastikas on the gun.

    When the Jacksonville shooting happened, Trump did not issue any statement on the tragedy. But you could argue that this campaign stop is a kind of tacit statement. He put the spotlight on Palmetto State Armory, praised its inventory, and tried to offer it business.

Pumpkins and Pumpkin Spice

Quote
When Lisa Powell and Elizabeth Engelhardt published a peer-reviewed research article titled “The Perilous Whiteness of Pumpkins” in 2015, many conservative, White scholars responded with outrage and disdain.

For instance, Margaret Wente, a Canadian columnist for The Globe and Mail, suggested the scholarly article reduced White people’s affinity for pumpkin spice lattes to “the ultimate expression of white privilege” and that it intended to inspire feelings of “shame,” in White people who buy them to fulfill their caffeine cravin

Quote
Why is it so hard to believe that pumpkins have a connection to whiteness in America? Perhaps it’s because so many feed into the myth of meritocracy and believe that resources in our community are made equally available, that those who work hard are able to succeed, and that blaming anyone struggling as having a poor work ethic. They need a pumpkin to be just a food item and nothing more to feed the myth that we live in an equal society, but we know that’s not true. As Powell and Engelhardt point out, to understand the “racial politics of pumpkins,” we should realize that they are more than a food item but also a symbol.

Quote
Furthermore, pumpkins are a common symbol of pranking culture in America, which is ultimately White since Black teenagers are not allowed to make mischief without it being viewed through a criminal lens. As City Ott, an American studies professor, told Mic, “shaming pumpkins and misrule at this festival are seen as an affront, but an affront that lets people let loose without challenging norms. The white kids here are just acting out. Black people are actually trying to change a violent political system.”

It then goes into the aspects of the white "Pumpkin spice latte culture"
Basically a PSL cost more than a reg coffee which automatically in their mind makes it's racist... I think

I need a drink now.

And they missed the most obvious clue of all -

Pumpkins are (for the most part) . . . ORANGE.

And . . . ORANGE MAN BAD!

Ergo - PUMPKINS ARE RACIST!

Right to repair
Because hospitals might start doing their own repairs and that will effect POC the most.  :O


Quote
One report from researchers with UCLA, Johns Hopkins and Harvard shows that hospitals with a large share of African American patients have significant funding disparities and receive lower payments for care from programs like Medicare. Unfortunately, these facilities are the ones that will most likely use the unregulated repair option to fit necessary maintenance into tight budgets. Therefore, we could be unintentionally putting our community on the front lines of the increased risk a broad right-to-repair policy would enable.

Apropos of nothing, I was just checking my Vanguard account, and saw that the scrolling pictures on the home page had zero white people in it. For kicks, I started clicking through all the Vanguard pages, and the models they use for "clients" are easily 95% POC. There are some clearly white women, and a couple of old white couples. Otherwise, any younger "white" man that shows up is ambiguous enough to be of European descent or of Middle Eastern descent.

I'm curious as to how that relates to their actual client demographics.

I was playing with Bing Create...

"I love being black" produced four positive cartoons about black people.

"I love being white" produced a forbidden content warning.   ;/

*edit* and "I love being Asian" produced a collage of Asian memes!   :rofl:

The plague
Cue the black death comments

They could be right in that it affected woman of color more, assuming there were even that many in medieval England to begin with, but the writer just can't resist the urge to inject the modern woke idea of racism into it.

Speaking as someone on the traditional right wing, I think the moral rot among the right is advancing, just like it is among society at large.
The traditional right wing is dead, they've for the most part abandoned bible morality personally and from the promotion of it as a cultural necessity. The traditional right has turned their hearts away from the most high God.

The traditional right wing is dead, they've abandoned nationalism for globalism. Sold the birthright for a box of plastic Chinese etc crap.

The traditional right wing is dead, they show zero loyalty to heritage America when they happen to get into a place of influence. The country is run by folks who are either foreigners at heart or they are in league with them that have no loyalty to Americans. The right wing are fellow travelers these days.

The traditional right wing is dead, they are simply the not so quickly and lets work the evil orderly under color of law party.

Globalist economics rotted out our manufacturing base through global trade, minimalist (un)ethics based on freedom ie (lasciviousness) and equality of outcomes (modern equity). All that along with the final wave (starting in 1965) of cultural diluting mass immigration has destroyed the nation called America.

Mass immigration, looting of resources and demoralization of citizenry = WAR.  "Our government" has been waging war on the America they claim to represent most if not all of our lives.

The traditional right wing have given only token resistance, if any at all, to the very vectors where the nation was attacked. They believed the lie of "the proposition nation". Nations aren't propositions. They are people, people with a shared history, culture and yes, normally a majority race or ethnicity. We are an empire run by globalists. The concerns of the people in the USA have become bothersome, so they have decided to get new people and sideline the annoying heritage Americans.

We ain't in Kansas anymore Toto.

For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity, that they may be without excuse. Because knowing God, they didn’t glorify him as God, and didn’t give thanks, but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.
