Sounds Like a Personal Problem to Me

Harambe memes = a form of racism?

I say “gorilla.”  You say “you’re insulting black people!” I say “I didn’t say anything about black people.”

What it all means is that they’re the ones thinking that black people are gorillas, and then, projection.

And, from the way I’ve read, seen and heard black people call each other gorillas, apes and monkeys, they’re definitely thinking it about themselves.

Also, I don’t get the through line between Harambe and “rape culture.”  Unless someone has it in the back of their mind that black men have a tendency to rape, why anyone would think that, I don’t know.

Wait what?  We were told they’re already more naturally musically inclined.





“Super Subgroup”

Jefferson City

DESE releases preliminary 2015-16 MAP data.

Same old same old.  That pesky gap just won’t go away.

In the initial report, DESE combines blacks, Hispanics, low income students, disabled students and English learners, all groups that for various reasons would score lower than native-born whites, into one big category of the disadvantaged, termed here the super subgroup.  That’s going to create a problem down the line.  After all, on which side of the ledger do you put transgender students?  It’s already a hassle to figure out which restrooms and locker rooms they should use.

Amid Growing Debate About Homework, One School Bans It

(snip)

“We want kids to go home tired; we want their brains to be tired,” Jackie Glasheen, principal of the school, whose kindergarten through 8th-grade students are nearly all poor and Hispanic, told ABC News. At home, she said, “we want them to engage with their families, talk about their school days and go to bed.”

In reality, the prime impetus for the anti-homework movement is social justice, that NAM students have horrible home lives.

“We want their brains to be tired.” Work that is mentally taxing is also physically taxing.

Cal State LA offers segregated housing for black students

‘A safe space for Black CSLA students …’

California State University Los Angeles recently rolled out segregated housing for black students.

The worst part about that is that the rest of the student housing won’t have any blacks.

Can you at least detect a hint of sarcasm?

If I was a non-black student at CSLA, I’d sarcastically and disingenuously organize a protest wherein I would complain about being robbed of black roommates. That’s because I know the net effect would be to drive blacks even further away. I know, the rest of the world isn’t as Machiavellan as I am.

The arrangement comes roughly nine months after the university’s Black Student Union issued a set of demands in response to what its members contend are frequent “racist attacks” on campus, such as “racially insensitive remarks” and “microaggressions” by professors and students.

I hope they survived.

“[It] would provide a cheaper alternative housing solution for Black students. This space would also serve as a safe space for Black CSLA students to congregate, connect, and learn from each other,” the demand letter stated.

The black section is the low rent district. See also: Everywhere else.

The newly debuted Halisi Scholars Black Living-Learning Community “focuses on academic excellence and learning experiences that are inclusive and non-discriminatory,” Cal State LA spokesman Robert Lopez told The College Fix via email.

Trying to wrap my mind around how “black-only” and “inclusive and non-discriminatory” fit together in the same concept, unless one thinks that inclusivity and non-discrimination don’t mean what they literally mean, and are instead weapons that blacks wield for their own racial benefit.

Lopez declined to answer any additional questions or provide more details on the new community, such as how many rooms it encompasses, and whether it’s a whole floor or just a few rooms.

And whether the dorm will have a weave installation salon.

In addition to the Black Student Union’s housing demand, the group also demanded a $30 million dollar scholarship endowment to aid black students, three new black faculty counselors, a new anti-discrimination policy and cultural competency course for faculty and students, and finally, a meeting with the president for them to discuss the “fulfillment and implementation of each demand.”

The tertiary education environment is such a threat to black bodies that they’re making demands of such a sort that the end result of them is that blacks would easily be able to be admitted onto one and never have to leave as they migrate from education to work. What this means is that this is just more gibs by any other means.

Why do they think they must atone?

For what sin are they atoning?

The two most educated and intellectual denominational corps of Christian clerics are on the polar opposite sides of a lot of theological disputes:  Jesuits and Missouri Synod Lutherans.  Therefore, Jesuits know that there is not a single condemnation of slavery as an institution anywhere in the Bible.  I would excuse such ignorance from theology lite touchy feely hucksters of the Joel Osteen mold and mammyookem cracker jack box theology degree AME black pimp preachers.  Jesuits are supposed to know better.

If the Maryland Jesuits had helped fund Georgetown University with the proceeds from murder contracts, then yeah, I can see the necessity for atonement.  And because Jesuits are works-justification, it would make sense for them atone through Earthly works.

Otherwise, this whole exercise is about black people who are fishing for a reason why they should never be held accountable for anything, and their non-black allies who agree with that notion.
