The True Believers tm , of which I'm sure Don Lemon is one, will tell you that the standardized tests have incorporated systemic racisim in them so the "lower" scores of minorities are not in fact indicative of lower competence, intelligence, or whatever is being tested, but rather they are a testament to how deeply the racisim is embedded in our society.

Many years ago back when Richard J. Daley was still mayor of Chicago, someone decided that the Chicago Police Department's written police entrance exam was racist since too many black applicants were failing, and ordered a new one created. They did do it (the new authors were mostly black officers) and it was approved and applauded. A police captain - a white guy - administered the written exam to his 11 year old daughter.

She not only passed it - but aced it.

Damn racist.

Nothing to see here because, you know, you can't be racist against white people

Shakespeare
Not the first time but this one steps it up a bit more

To be racist or not to be racist

Quote
    The “disproportionate representation” of William Shakespeare in the theatre has propagated “white, able-bodied, heterosexual, cisgender male narratives”, according to researchers in an £800,000 taxpayer-funded project.

    The claim has prompted critics to accuse the Arts and Humanities Research Council, which has funded the study by academics at the University of Roehampton, of promoting “cultural clickbait”.

    The project, devoted to “centring marginalised communities in the contemporary performance of early modern plays”, is due to be completed in two years’ time.

    The researchers want to challenge the “normative trend” in “classical theatre” arising from “the disproportionate representation of William Shakespeare in scholarship and performance”.

I never liked Shakespeare, probably because of high school English teachers who force fed him (along with other crapola) to the class.

Although one of my favorite movies - Forbidden Planet - was loosely based on The Tempest. (Of course, it was full of white people, so . . . )

Damn racist.

In other words, a "brain dead moron" could pass the new test.
There was a radio DJ in the St. Louis area that got in trouble for bringing up a NYC case where an applicant did well on the test but wasn't hired as he was "too intelligent" according to the testers.  They didn't want to pay for all that training only to have him become disillusioned and resign.  The DJ pointed out that most PDs were looking for people whose IQ rating was about 105 - barely average.

Is it any wonder the cops can't seem to solve anything?

Bridges
Because according to Pete Buttigie many were built too low to allow buses of mostly black and Puerto Rican children to pass under them.
I guess buses carrying mostly white children have some sort of white privileged superpower to allow them to go under.

Not sure if he was saying this before or after the Baltimore bridges collapse

That's a longstanding urban legend that's probably true. Everyone knows Robert Moses was blatantly racist, and everyone knows he made racist decisions. And it's a fact that the Staten Island bridges are built lower than similar bridges. But did he specifically build them lower because he was racist? You'll never prove it, but there's no reason to doubt it.

What I don't understand is why people would get upset about the bridges and not about destroying entire black neighborhoods, which is way worse and also not disputed. Actually I do... it's because everything you see in the media is a smokescreen for something else, always.

To quote the article:

Quote
The professor explained in the article that she is "a White, cisgender woman … currently living with my partner and co-raising our children in a committed heterosexual union outside the institution of marriage."

There are a couple of descriptive names that come to mind about a female doing that and neither one are "polite".  Those two names are "tramp" or "whore".  >:D

Tramps and whores are not known for commitment, or even the half-commitment she describes. I think the term you're looking for is "common law wife."

Couple wants the historic designation removed from a house build in 1906 they own because the builder had anti-immigration views
I'm thinking they just want to modify the house but are being blocked by the historic designation and are trying to use the racist bit as an excuse to change that.

Real Housewife and husband say $3.7m home's historic designation should be removed because it was built in 1906 by racist (after they were banned from refurbishing it)

And the city says it's got the designation not because it was built for a racist, but because of the architect who designed it.

In other words, facts don't matter, perception does!

That is one nasty assed staircase, though.

Sounds like the city should force them to give up the house, with no money in return. I mean it's a racist house, right? It wouldn't be right to live in it or sell it for cash. Dummies.

New State Department diversity officer calls for destruction of tradition and white dominance.

https://www.foxnews.com/media/new-state-department-diversity-chief-believes-us-failed-historical-model-colonizing-past

To me, having worked at State Department for the better part of a decade, is that she's going to bring in a tidal wave of change and destruction of tradition.

The State Department is the most hidebound, traditional, and most resistant to change organization I've ever seen.

The fact that ANY government agency even HAS a "Diversity Chief" let alone an entire "Race, Ethnicity and Social Inclusion Unit" is outrageous - it's proof that not only has government grown FAR too large, but that it has become increasingly committed to Discrimination, Exclusion, and Intolerance.  (Or perhaps the D stands for Deviance . . . or even Depravity.)

When Trump is re-elected, he ought to utterly abolish all such positions and offices in the Executive Branch.
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.
