Recommended Reading: Racism Everywhere!

See Even Air Is Racist Now by Jim Treacher (March 12, 2019).

Brief excerpt:
...It's "pollution inequity." White people have a "pollution advantage" because we breathe less pollution than we generate. Every time we go pretty much anywhere or do pretty much anything, we're widening the atmosphere gap. We're creating air disparity. Presumably we owe some sort of oxygen reparations....
Read the rest HERE.

At what point does the very term racism become such a nuisance and so ludicrous that the term no longer has any meaning?

  1. If you're a Democrat, everything is race (a major component of intersectionality).

    "Intersectionality's greatest flaw is in reducing human beings to political abstractions, which is never a tendency that turns out well—in part because it so severely flattens our complex human experience, and therefore fails to adequately describe reality. As it turns out, one can be personally successful and still come from a historically oppressed community—or vice versa. The human experience is complex and multifaceted and deeper than the superficial ways in which intersectionalists describe it."

    1. The point is to get every American to perform an "autocritique" of their "white privilege." And then force them to "confess their crimes" in a public humiliation called a "struggle session". This is why there are so many trolls at conservative websites calling every nationalist a "white nationalist/racist". The Left is consolidating it's political gains since '68 through a social media based "cultural revolution." It's all B.S.. We're fools if we self-criticize. THEY are the ones who actually were racists. Republicans never have been, nor never were.

    2. Since '68, the American Left has made a mockery of politics. Our best recourse, IMO, is to "mock the mockers". Let them autocritique the immorality of their own struggle session.

    3. I agree, Farmer. We need to spur them on. The more "out there" they get, the more people they lose and the weaker this poisonous movement becomes.

    4. Joe Biden's "struggle session" over the Anita Hill hearings was kinda hilarious, though. ;)

    5. FJ, Indeed. I love watching guilty white Democrats apologize for being who they are. What they don't realize is, the beast they are trying to satisfy is insatiable. They are in an infinite downward pander-spiral and don't even realize it.

    6. Yes, what did his struggle session earn him? More accusations from women about his creepy behaviour.

  4. The leftist agenda absolutely depends upon pitting "people of color" against "white people," and convincing "people of color" how oppressed they are here despite the fact that...

    "black" people live better here that "black" people in any "black" country on earth

    Muslims live better here than in any Muslim nation on earth

    Hispanic people live better here that in any Hispanic nation on earth

    1. ...otherwise there's be no "basis" to their arguments. America's existing (though less daily) system makes EVERYONE who has the desire to be, successful! Why? Because there are no guarantee's in life. The social safety net is a trap, not a hammock, no matter much they talk it up.

    2. All that is generally true SF. Very few folks challenge those truths. The point is the degree of prejudice and discrimination they face from institutionalized Caucasian bigotry IN America. Fact is America, just like other countries, are prejudiced and have been historically so.

      Fortunately we have come a long since our most racist days.. But we still have a ways to go.

      Why can't exogenous people just get along with the endogenous ones?

    4. Wanna know the difference between "like" and "other"? You can easily take your eyes off the "like".

    5. And agape love is not philia, storge or eros. It requires from all one's devotion to a single god. It is also a uniquely "Christian" attitude.

    6. America is the least bigoted nation that ever existed on the planet, EVER.

    7. ...but only because of their institutionalized agape... which the Left continues, through "hate crime" legislation and in the name of "Social justice", unravel.

    8. Chloe Valdary was so right (see 1st post on this thread).

    9. Joe,
      America is the least bigoted nation that ever existed on the planet, EVER.

      My opinion as well. I'm sure there are data to prove that assertion.

    10. ...and if you were to ask me, I'd say that the people who study and/or complain of racial inequities in pollution are suffering from a serious case of affluenflammation!

    11. Joe,
      Very informative map in that first link!

    12. Yes, as the map conclusively shows, racism in the USA todaaay is largely an IMPORTATION problem... of IMPORTING racist people frm OTHER countries into the USA and then questioning why racism hasn't been completely eradicated....

    13. You cannot do the game of erotic seduction in politically correct terms: Another thing that bothers me about this multiculturalism is when people ask me: 'How can you be sure that you are not a racist?' My answer is that there is only one way. If I can exchange insults, brutal jokes, dirty jokes, with a member of a different race and we both know it's not meant in a racist way. If, on the other hand, we play this politically correct game - 'Oh, I respect you, how interesting your customs are' - this is inverted racism, and it is disgusting. -Slavoj Zizek

  5. We are today long past the point where the term "racism" no longer has meaning.

    1. It has meaning but it's being applied indiscriminately.

    2. Orwell called it. The left is destroying the language, shrinking it, dumbing it down.

  7. btw - All that "White Privilege" we're being forced to "confess to" is really "Global Capitalist Privilege"...

    The ideal form of ideology of global capitalism is multiculturalism, the attitude which, from a kind of empty global position, treats each local culture the way the colonizer treats colonized people—as ‘natives’ whose mores are to be carefully studied and ‘respected’. That is to say, the relationship between traditional imperialist colonialism and global capitalist self-colonization is exactly the same as the relationship between Western cultural imperialism and multiculturalism: in the same way that global capitalism involves the paradox of colonization without the colonizing Nation-State metropole, multiculturalism involves patronizing Eurocentrist distance and/or respect for local cultures without roots in one’s own particular culture. In other words, multiculturalism is a disavowed, inverted, self-referential form of racism, a ‘racism with a distance’—it ‘respects’ the Other’s identity, conceiving the Other as a self-enclosed ‘authentic’ community towards which he, the multiculturalist, maintains a distance rendered possible by his privileged universal position. Multiculturalism is a racism which empties its own position of all positive content (the multiculturalist is not a direct racist, he doesn’t oppose to the Other the particular values of his own culture), but nonetheless retains this position as; the privileged empty point of universality from which one is able to appreciate (and depreciate) properly other particular cultures—the multiculturalist respect for the Other’s specificity is the very form of asserting one’s; own superiority. -Slavoj Zizek (excerpt)
