Inequality For Minority Men

Al Jazeera America:

Obama: Inequality facing minority men behind unrest in Baltimore, Ferguson

(snip)

He tied the call for justice with an economic message for the 60 donors who paid $10,000 to see him at an expansive, art-filled Upper East Side apartment — including actor Wendell Pierce, who played a Baltimore police detective working in drug-ridden projects on “The Wire.”

Obama later held a discussion with about 30 donors contributing up to $33,400. That event was closed to the media.

Inequality is apparently not a problem for one certain minority man.

Helping launch a foundation to assist young minorities, Obama said the catalysts of protests in Ferguson, Missouri, and in Baltimore were the deaths of young black men and “a feeling that law is not always applied evenly in this country.”

(snip)

The White House sought to distinguish the operation of the organization from Bill and Hillary Clinton’s family foundation, whose financing has attracted criticism. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said My Brother’s Keeper Alliance would be responsible for determining its own fundraising policies.

The nonprofit, to be headed by Joe Echevarria, former chief executive of consulting firm Deloitte, will develop guidance for companies to increase access to jobs for racial minorities.

Racial minorities named Sasha Obama and Malia Obama, e.g.

Note that it was part of this day of yapping about inequality that led Michelle Obama to mouth off about museums.

No Convenient Locations

Really, Howie?  Is that want you want?

First off, it says that Starbucks baristas (people with master’s degrees in useless fields and six figures of student loan debt) are “free to talk about race relations with customers.”  Are they really?  Let’s see what happens to the first Starbucks barista that talks about race relations the way Jared Taylor does.

Then there’s the matter of this:

starbucks-stl

Right.  A map of St. Louis Starbucks locations.  Guess where you don’t see a lot of red pushpins.  The only reason there seems to be one in Ferguson is because it’s on the campus of Emerson Electric’s world HQ, which is technically in Ferguson.  Otherwise, you don’t find one Starbucks in the areas that the NYT Census Explorer would show are the heavily black census tracts.

Put these two things together, and what this means is that Starbucks baristas (white liberal SJWs) are free to engage in left wing racial agitation with Starbucks customers (white liberal SJWs), simultaneously showing solidarity with and being a safe distance from the black undertow.  Meanwhile, they can all complain about evil Chick-Fil-A, which at least in the St. Louis context, is right where they are.

That, and all those Starbucks baristas with degrees in some sort of race studies field can finally put their diplomas to good use.

UPDATE

People on Twitter took this offer seriously, and guess what happened next.

 





Penny Saved

Davos, Switzerland

Bloomberg:

Billionaire Jeff Greene, who amassed a multibillion dollar fortune investing in real estate and betting against subprime mortgage securities, says the U.S. faces a jobs crisis that will cause social unrest and radical politics.

“America’s lifestyle expectations are far too high and need to be adjusted so we have less things and a smaller, better existence,” Greene said in an interview today at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. “We need to reinvent our whole system of life.”

And then, blah blah blah, and later we found out about how much he’s spending on his Davos sojourn, $43 for a hot dog, two nannies in tow, cue accusations of elitist hypocrisy.

I like throwing around accusations of elitist hypocrisy as much as anyone, so much so that I even have a category for it on this blog.  I also think that elitist hypocrisy really digs deep into the anger of the public consciousness.  Remember, one of the most effective political campaigns against Barack Obama, and there haven’t been many, was the NRA’s ad of about two years ago entitled “Elitist Hypocrisy.”

But that’s not what interests me here with this Jeff Greene thing.  What does are two things:

One, he says that “America’s lifestyle expectations are far too high…”  He’s not saying this because he thinks there are some forces beyond our control that are mandating that.  He’s saying that because he wants it to be true, and the reason he wants us to embrace happily a lower standard of living, for whatever contrived cock and bull excuse he and his ilk are going to trot out, (mainly “save the environment”), is that the less we are happy with, the less they need to pay us, which in turn amounts to another constant steady transfer of wealth from labor to capital.  It’s the same reason they all want “comprehensive immigration reform.”

Two, notice where he said these words and where he went.  Davos, Switzerland.  That angle can’t be overlooked either, because as Steve Sailer has noted, the general trend in today’s plutocratic class is less Bilderberg and more Davos.  That is, Bilderberg was all about plutocrats and their favorite politicians all hanging out at expensive resorts so that the former can bark orders at the latter.  Eventually, the PR of that got to be so bad that it bled through the propaganda that our noticing Bilderberg skullduggery was just a function of our tinfoil hats being on too tight.  OTOH, Davos is a metaphor for the plutocrats going to an Alpine ski town mostly by themselves and bathing themselves in the lush warm do-gooder waters, a massive public relations campaign wherein they try to pass off their greed and selfishness as compassion.  The rich get richer at the expense of everyone else?  Naw man, it’s compassion for the oppressed non-white immigrant, opposing *-ism + *-phobia, and saving the Earth.





Greenwich Mean Time

Greenwich, Connecticut

Jeb Bush, who wants amnesty, open borders, practically unlimited immigration, so we can grow grow grow without end, is de facto kicking off his Presidential campaign in a city whose population growth rate in the last decade was 0.1%.

Growth, like taxes, is only for the little people.





You Don’t Shoot

Staten Island

I have sort of a rhetorical question:

Why are the national media and the good hipsters and trust fund brats of Park Slope way more upset over Michael Brown and Ferguson, Missouri than Eric Garner and Staten Island, New York?

You’ve never heard of Eric Garner?  Well, then, you better start with your favorite internet search engine.  You’ll find out that as far as police-black conflagrations, it’s way murkier and maybe way more the cops’ fault than what happened in handsupdontshoot country close to me.

You’ll find hints in this very blog post, not only in the actual text, but in the categories.





No Person Is Illegal, Borders are Inhumane, Comprehensive Reform

Washington, D.C.

The border patrol sprang right into action.

Don’t arrest him, give him a job inside the White House.  He’s only going there to do the jobs that the people already inside won’t do, hopping the fence for a better life.
