To wit:

New York City’s annual Inner Circle Dinner brought New York politicians together for an evening of food and fun but also for stiff politicians performing awkward skits. Such was the case when former New York Senator Hillary Clinton and New York City mayor Bill de Blasio were on stage. Clinton poked fun at de Blasio for his endorsement coming a little late in the game for Clinton’s taste. “I just have to say thanks for the endorsement, Bill. Took you long enough,” she said to laughter.

“Sorry Hillary, I was running on C.P. time,” de Blasio responded to a mixture of chuckles and gasps. CPT is known as “colored people time” the stereotype that African Americans generally tell as a reason for being late to an event or a traditionally black event not beginning on time.

The title of the piece is: Hillary Clinton and Bill de Blasio set off cringing with painful joke about ‘colored people time’

Cringing? If this was said by Donald Trump or Ted Cruz nobody would be talking about “cringing” they would be talking about institutional racism and there would be demands for apologies all around.

However a “D” next to your name not only means never having to say you’re sorry it also means that nobody in the media will ever ask you to be.

Here is the question: Will Bernie Sanders or his supporters call them on this?

When I saw this story:

Portland Community College has designated April “Whiteness History Month” (WHM), an “educational project” exploring how the “construct of whiteness” creates racial inequality.

And this description of what Portland Community College is doing with it

“‘Whiteness History Month: Context, Consequences, and Change’ is a multidisciplinary, district-wide, educational project examining race and racism through an exploration of the construction of whiteness, its origins, and heritage,” PCC states on its website. “Scheduled for the month of April 2016, the project seeks to inspire innovative and practical solutions to community issues and social problems that stem from racism.”

The WHM site makes clear that the project is not a “celebratory endeavor” like heritage months, but is rather “an effort to change our campus climate” by “[challenging] the master narrative of race and racism through an exploration of the social construction of whiteness.” (“Challenging the master narrative,” PCC explains, “is a strategy within higher education that promotes multicultural education and equity.”)

My first thought was instantly “Class action suit waiting to happen”

There are specific laws concerning Racial Discrimination and also very likely rules at the college concerning “hostile work / educational environments”. Our friends on the left have been pushing these rules for decades.

What happens if white students, white workers and white administrators decide to launch discrimination suits based on those laws?

I think the results of such suits might be very interesting, don’t you?

On an unrelated note it’s gratifying that the students at this school are so advanced on math, english and all the important disciplines that can get you a job that they have time for this kind of thing

It’s 24 hours since Vester Williams decided to take his racial grievances to a lethal ending murdering two people he believed wronged him, shooting a third because she was there filming it, facebook and tweeting it and then finally shooting himself.

Many of our friends on the left from Hillary Clinton to much less well known people didn’t let this crisis or the bodies go to waste, instantly using it as a meme to push their agendas. While that was both unexpected and despicable it was a totally expected result as was the sudden pivot of certain people once it was discovered that the shooter was a black man.

Additionally because of his perceived racial grievance that was his motive I suspect many people, who have for the last several years have been radicalized by a concerted effort by certain people to push racial division in this country for both their own monetary & political profit, will find themselves justifying and or excusing acts that would be normally be unquestionably condemned either on social media or in private.

While all of that is disgusting there is going to be one other result of this murder that while it will get little or no discussion is going to have a lasting effect in business in general and in newsrooms in particularly all over the country.

From this point on if you are a in a newsroom and someone cries “racial discrimination” the name of Vester Flanagan will come to mind and that news director, that manager and the others in that workplace will ask themselves: “Is there any chance that this person will crack and try to kill me?”.

Even worse thanks to the very public nature of this crime this thought is going to extend far beyond newsrooms. Just as the riots in Ferguson will be on the mind of every chain considering opening in an urban neighborhood every hiring manager who saw this story will have this in mind when a person is involved.

Now logically this is not a common thing, this is not a likely thing and such a reaction is not rational, but it is very human.

I’d hate to be a person of color seeking a job in that atmosphere.

While in his mind Vester Williams was striking a blow to right a racial wrong, and justified his actions and murder accordingly (likely considering the person being interviewed as collateral damage). This is a horrible evil thing, but the long term damage he will be doing, particularly to other professional young black men and women is incalculable.

This is the gift that Vester Williams has given to every black employee in every newsroom in the country and beyond. It’s not fair, but neither is life.

…then on every network you would be seeing activists decrying Parker and Ward as the lowest of the low. Stating they were emblematic of the Racism in media and demanding they be dismissed. On twitter you would be seeing people calling them bigots at best and likely a whole lot worse and both of them would have become so radioactive as to be practically unemployable and Flanagan would not only have been hailed as a heroic whistleblower, a symbol of black oppression he would have been invited to speak at events all over the nation, and any person who doubted his story or defended either Ward or Parker they would have immediately been denounced as racists both online and in media.

That would have been the end result if Vester Flanagan has shot off his mouth rather than his gun.

Keep that in mind the next time someone is so quick to cry racism and be ready to destroy someone.

Related: What happens when a meme goes wrong:

I suspect that if Flanagan had made those charges Deray would have been right behind him.

Update: Stacy McCain

If someone says they are a victim of racism, sexism or homophobia, and then they use claims of victimhood to justify violence, how seriously should we take their political arguments? It’s a hall of mirrors. If we say Vester Flanagan was just a disgruntled kook, what does that make Al Sharpton? Isn’t he just a more successful disgruntled kook?

Twitchy reported that fans of the Black Lives matter movement decided to poke fun at the “all lives matter” resonse using he death of Cecil the Lion:

This week, though, in the wake of the outrage over the killing of Cecil the lion, a number of activists have decided to swap #BlackLivesMatter for #AllLionsMatter. Honestly, #BlackLivesMatter plus a sense of humor is a pretty potent combination.

However there is an incredible irony that is revealed in this post at Althouse emphasis mine

“Why are the Americans more concerned than us?” said Joseph Mabuwa, a 33-year-old father-of-two cleaning his car in the center of the capital. “We never hear them speak out when villagers are killed by lions and elephants in Hwange.”

Apparently the black population of Zimbabwe have noticed that American activists are very selective about which black lives matter.  Particularly when compared to a lions.

Update:  Apparently it all comes down if you’re eating them:

Radio Equalizer’s Brian Maloney wonders where the outrage over Zimbabwe dictator Robert Mugabe’s treatment of endangered animals? 

While a social media mob has Dr Walter Palmer fearing for his life, it was only five months ago that Zimbabwe dictator Robert Mugabe was served a lavish feast that included lion meat and a mass slaughter of baby elephants and other endangered animals.

It was also described as a “lion trophy” and its age described as “old”, according to state and independent press reports.

Update 2:  what they said

Yesterday the big news was the indictment of police officer Ray Tensing for the killing of Samuel DuBose

It’s certainly a legit story and Samuel DuBose’s names deserves attention but let me ask you something.

Do you recognize any of these names?

Franklin Grayson, Michael Polston, Jaswinder Singh, Charles Diggs, Damon L. Ramey, Daquan Mason, Clerow Myers III, Jefferson Bolden, Raja’ee Naneem Sincere, Sina Masoodii, Albert Mullen, Shyteak Lawrence, Delvin Trusty, Damon Tidale, Terron Singleton, Ronald Davon Penn, Steven Justin Lewis, Frederick S. Taylor, Marvin Coston Jr, Dante Barnes, Darrius Johnson, Tyrell Hardy, James Ricardo Smith, Gregory Higgins, Gary Jackson, Eric Forrester, Antonio anderson, Jacqueline Parker , Gerald Thompson, Lamont Randall Jr., John F. Davis, Derwin Jones, Edward Burroughs, Keith Glascoe, Josh Remus Burnett, and Nathaniel Wheeler Jr.

All of these people have two things in common.

1.  All of them were murdered in Baltimore this month

2.  None of their murders were considered worthy of the coverage by the MSM

If you are surprised by this then you likely aren’t paying attention.

I suspect that the likelihood of the MSM finding these deaths worth their attention the same as a candidate running for president on a major party ticket plagiarizing this speech

Ok let me make sure I understand this:

Despite objective biological facts, the media and our culture demand that because a man by the name of Jenner insists and imagines himself to be woman, pays money for hormone treatment to increase female hormones into his body, and changes his physical appearance using makeup and clothing to portray himself as a woman, we are not required to accept it as fact. Furthermore our cultural elites insist that not doing so is a sign of closed minded bigotry.

HOWEVER

If despite objective biological facts, a woman by the name of Dolezal insists and imagines herself to be black that’s different story:

Rachel Dolezal serves as chair of the independent commission, in addition to her work as an adjunct faculty member at Eastern Washington University and president of the NAACP local chapter. On her application to serve on the commission, she identified herself as African-American. But public records, including Dolezal’s own birth certificate, list her biological parents as Ruthanne and Lawrence Dolezal of Montana. The Dolezals told KXLY Thursday that Rachel is their biological daughter and that they are both white.

Hold on a second here, what do facts or a birth certificate have to do with this?

If a person physically alters themselves to remove male or female organs and has plastic surgery to create the appearance the other sex not only does the law allow them to be considered the opposite sex despite the biological & DNA evidence but they’re allowed in some cases to alter their birth certificates to reflect the sex they claim to because despite the objective evidence of biology gender is a “social construct” then why would not race be also a social construct? After all compared to the biological differences between men and woman the biological differences between various races are practically non-existent.

Furthermore most of us can not trace our ancestry back to the beginning of time race so who is to say that there is not a different racial ancestry in our past then what is physically apparent?

Given these facts It’s apparent that anyone who is unwilling to accept MS Dolezal transracial identity is properly identified as a bigot who is trapped in the evil western cultural racial identity paradigm.

Because if the NAACP and the left refuse to do so then they might have to admit that there is such a thing as objective fact and that admission would be too horrible for them to contemplate.

Update: Glenn beat me to it:

SHE’S TRANS-BLACK. DON’T SHAME HER. NAACP leader and civil rights activist outed as WHITE by her parents who say she’s been pretending to be black for years. She’s obviously transitioning, and we should support her choice.

Update 2: Kirk had the best advice against self delusion:

Update 3: Allahpundit:

“Trans” in this context is a term used to describe adoptions that cross racial lines, not to imply that she or her family had “transitioned” a la Caitlyn Jenner from one race to the other — although maybe now Dolezal has no choice but to make that argument. When you’ve committed a fraud this absurd and elaborate, involving fake dads and fake sons and almost certainly fake hate crimes, the only path back to a modicum of sympathy is claiming that your identification with African-Americans is so complete that your entire racial identity has shifted because of it.

and Batshitcrazy news looks at a picture and decleares #orangeisthenewblack

I keep thinking of Pilate’s questions to Jesus: “What is truth?”

Update 4: The Anchoress absolutely nails it:

Mark it down, people. June 2015 is when the human animal declared “who the hell are God and Science to dare tell us what the truth is, anyway?” Faith in one’s feelings trumps both. Individual feelings are become a personal truth, and personal truth is absolute and unassailable reality.
“Only a Sith thinks in absolutes”, said Obi-Wan, and only mean people think in terms of Objective Truth. “I know what I know, and it’s the truth”; subjectivity is The New Absolute. The New Absolute is the Almighty Me, and what I AM.

Thou shalt have no other gods but ME

One of the biggest problems for the left in election 2016 will be not having Barack Obama on the ballot.

Given the abject failure of his policies one would think that this is a good thing but it was not just conservatives staying home but black voters determined that the first black president not be considered a one term failure that even though he failed them dramatically they turned up in numbers to push him over the finish line.

But now with Hillary Clinton the likely nominee and all the alternatives being elderly white people (Elizabeth Warren is just as old as Hillary) how do you turn out the black vote?

Can a get a little racial tension here:

Police in riot gear made 71 arrests Saturday as protesters stormed the streets of Cleveland after a judge found a white city police officer not guilty in the deaths of two unarmed black suspects killed in a barrage of police gunfire.

The protesters gathered in downtown Cleveland and west side neighborhoods after the acquittal of patrolmen Michael Brelo.

The Judge in the Cleveland Case before reading his verdict said:

“The verdict should be no cause for a civilized society to celebrate or riot.”

However the need to create a racial division prior to a national election to make sure the right people get power, that’s another story.

What do you think the Soros group was paying protesters, just for the fun of it?

I could be dead wrong, but as our friends on the left say, “Never let a crisis go to waste” but perhaps the line should be:  If you can’t find a crisis to exploit, make one.

And if society and the people you are supposedly helping pay the price, what’s the difference?  It’s all about keeping power, and it’s not like we believe in anything anyways.

Update: By an odd coincidence

We aren’t hearing from the #blacklivesmatter crowd about these people but since none of these black lives contribute to a meme that re-elects democrats they apparently they don’t matter.

And they’re certainly not worth paying $5000 a head to have someone protest them.

10th Doctor: Interesting. A sort Absorbatrix? Absorbaclon? Absorbaloff?

Doctor Who Love & Monsters 2006

Yesterday there was joy in Baltimore and the cause of justice as six police officers were charged with crimes ranging from 2nd degree murder to manslaughter in the death of a person in custody.

But there was an even greater triumph for the cause of equality as it was revealed that 50% of the officers arrested were black and 16% were women demonstrating that at least in the case of police negligence (I say negligence because the charges involve inaction of not securing or aiding their prisoner rather than action such as beating him)  blacks and women have apparently reached parity with white officers in the left’s meme of oppression of people of color.

However this development has not been met with joy but with concerning from Joan Walsh of Salon:

I must confess being a mere conservative the idea that Blacks and women by the regular association with white men might “absorb” their evil racial attitudes of them never occurred to me.

But this should not be a surprise as this has been seen before in the third world as places like Africa & India took on some of the traits of those who colonized them (such as christianity) that still result in oppression today.

This is a serious problem and even more terrifying if you consider that police officers go through rigorous training, both physical and mental in order to do their job properly.

If such highly trained people are subject to such absorption how much more vulnerable would school children of any age, workers or even the average homeowner in a neighborhood be to this syndrome? After all the phrase “acting white” didn’t come out of thin air!

Well we as a just and liberal society must do all we can to stop this in its tracks.  .

1. Classification:

The first step of course is to classify this social disease.  How can we stop it if we don’t know what it is.  As we can trace and document this absorption of “white attitudes” to the days of colonization the logical name is

Contagious Oppression Of The Indigenous Entities Syndrome

or “Cooties” for short.

This must be immediately recognized by any and all medical and psychological organizations nationwide.  Any such organization or that would deny the existence of “COOTIES” should be defunded and any such individual denied a degree or certification in any medical or psychological field.

2.  Education:

Having named this social disease and recognized it.  The next step is the necessary federal grants to institutions of higher learning to study and combat this syndrome.

I would suspect the lions share of such grants would need to go to racial and gender studies programs as they are the most sensitive to even the slightest signs of oppression by white males.

And of course community groups should not be ignored, ACORN and other organizations should be fully funded by the government to make sure activists on the street are trained to recognize  “COOTIES” wherever they may be.

This will of course require higher taxes, particularly on corporations but isn’t it worth it to stop the dreaded scourge of “COOTIES”?

3.  Prevention:

While the full funding of ongoing research is a positive step it is not enough.  We need to stop COOTIES in its tracks.  So until there is a cure for COOTIES there is only one thing to do.

It is necessary to separate those vulnerable to COOTIES from those who carry the disease. Therefore in order to protect people of color it will be necessary to educate such people in an environment completely free of White Males, from preschool days to the end of higher education.

And given this solution it we might take the opportunity to nip the entire “rape culture” business in the bud by educating young women in a safe space completely free from males of all colors. This will minimize the potential for any trace of COOTIES to reach them.

All of this will of course require even more government spending but it’s a small price to pay to make sure the most vulnerable of us are not exposed to COOTIES.

As for the protection of general public. Until generations can be carefully taught to avoid White Males and the COOTIES they carry it’s clear that laws will simply have to be passed to protect the vulnerable public from this scourge.

Eventually, with government funding,  alternatives in business, transportation and housing will exist.  This is the ideal as it will mean people shopping, traveling, buying a house or going out to eat will never in their lifetime be exposed to those carrying COOTIES.

Until that can be achieved laws will have to be passed to protect the public NOW!  We must as a compassionate and diverse society ensure that a person going to a store, traveling on a bus, buying a house or even sitting at a lunch counter will have minimal exposure, if any, to white male carries of COOTIES and severe penalties must be imposed on any who might break these barriers and risk the spread of this dread syndrome to our loved ones.

I would like to thank Joan Walsh and the entire Salon staff for highlighting the problem of Contagious Oppression Of The Indigenous Entities Syndrome and remind you that if you oppose any of these sensible solutions to stop it, not only are you a racist, bigot, sexist, homophobe, transaphobe hater but are clearly a carrier of COOTIES who must be removed from the general population at once!

It’s for the children.

Update:  moved a classification

Naturally I would expect millions of dollars in government grants so I can further study COOTIES and their effects on the public, but until these come through I would ask you to hit DaTipJar and help me pay for this vital social research:

How many of the people currently rioting have been told that they are oppressed and justified in doing so.

And now we have CNN asking where are the police?

Amazing simply amazing
