    Yeah. I mentioned no fault divorce....given to us by "conservative" Ronald Reagan who basically wanted one for himself. Oh and he was an early proponent of gun control too. Reminds me of another more recent "conservative" president...but I digress.

Edit: But keeping with the Juneteenth mood. 1803414550475116679

    :rolleyes: I'm talking about specifically regarding the break up of the family. You're welcome to jump into the stream of a conversation but not welcome to change the subject. Please address what's actually being discussed at the moment thank you very much. Edit: And please understand that the words immigration and integration are not the same thing. Consult a dictionary if necessary. For a further reference see: Americans can look back to the Irish immigrants of the 1850s to see that criminal justice disparities are very often a symptom of vast socioeconomic disparities, not traits inherent to a certain group of people.

    Well I have a son who's become acclimatized to Chicago. Okay. But I thought the point of the 3 hour Tucker interview that I haven't watched yet is that the problem with the Civil Rights Movement is that it got people thinking collectively? I'm seriously confused as to what your position is. :confused: Did you watch the Joe Rogan interview I posted about Sparta? Just curious.

    Maybe. Maybe not. As Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, and others have pointed out far more effectively and eloquently than I could ever hope to do, as long as "diversity" hiring and honoring are things, suspicions that "diverse" hires and honors might have been otherwise undeserved will also be things. Such suspicions may be incorrect in any particular case (such as this one), but they are not automatically unreasonable. That is one of the ugly things that makes the practice of "diversity" hiring and honoring so nasty and pernicious (and counter-productive in the long term).

    No offense, but your winter doesn't look that appealing to me. :) I'll listen to it sometime when I have a 3 hour drive by myself. But this begs the question. Isn't this entire thread collectively viewing people? I'm seriously stunned by the genetic trauma argument coming from you as that is the kind of argument I would be expecting from a critical race theorist. If Pat Buchannan endorsed that view that's even more shocking. This reminds me of a song.

    It's only racist if "doing for your people" requires you to mistreat someone else. I would have no problem with Larry Bird going to his old neighborhood and starting a "White people can play basketball too" camp. Institutions that blacks have set up to help ourselves have almost universally been open for everyone else. Whites were always allowed to attend HBCUs if they wanted to and if local segregation laws didn't prevent it. Black churches have always been open to white people. And while Vanilla Ice got booed when he was nominated for best R&B single, he still got nominated and the did a biopic of him on BET. Meanwhile Eminem has been fully embraced by black people. (I still don't get that but okay).

    Christianity went from the Middle East to Africa in the first century AD and Christianity was established as the official religion of Ethiopia about the same time that Constantine converted. Constantine was pagan, but Ethiopia was Jewish prior to Christianity. And Ethiopian Judaism had not been polluted by the Babylonian Talmud. (Probably why it was so much easier for Ethiopian Jews to convert). Meanwhile, you got your "rainbow tribe" from the Greek Spartans who, despite their bravery for standing up against the Persians, had a thing for little boys. Is that what you call "enlightenment?"

    How many Americans own oil wells? Does that change the fact that since WW2 America has dominated through the petrodollar? No. No it does not. The slave economy benefited more people than just the slave owners. There were the overseers. There were the people who owned the cotton gin. There were the slavecatchers. When the transatlantic slave trade was going on there were the people who owned the slave ships (a significant portion of them in the "small hat club" as Anti Federalist points out). There were the sailors on the slave ships. There were the textile manufacturers who bought and processed the cotton (some in the North and some in Europe). It was an entire economy that benefited from the same system. We go to war over oil (and don't pretend we don't) because our entire economy is dependent upon it. Gaddafi had made peace with the U.S. under George W. Bush and our first black president, Barack Obama, facilitated his overthrow and murder because Gaddafi wanted to get Libya off of the petrodollar. The only reason we aren't bombing Saudi Arabia right now is because the United States is weak and BRICS is strong. See above. You still don't realize you're destroying your own argument. Interesting.

    Actually you've just made the case for reparations. If someone is damaged the damage should be repaired. Integration and diversity have already worked so that's a non argument. Besides, if you did your own genetic history you're probably not pure blood anything. German, Italian, Dutch, etc are all "diverse." But there are communities that need to be repaired. America gave reparations to Nazi traitors (Ford and GM) who turned around and gave reparations to their Jewish WW 2 slaves. America also paid reparations to Japanese Americans for a few short years of interment and loss of property. But the other week an Oklahoma court denied reparations to two survivors of the Tulsa ethnic cleansing (yes, well over 100 years old), for reasons I don't know as I haven't read the case. Reparations are typically a legislative remedy anyway so that's probably why they lost. The other thing that you've proven is the Brandon Johnson speeches you highlighted may have a basis in reality. If there is "genetic trauma" then it's okay to blame black people's problems on white racism. Note I didn't make these arguments. They just naturally flow from your genetic trauma argument. I think life is much more complex than pure genetics and even epigenetics (Fancy word for genetic memory). The problems are communal rather than individual. That's why I'm excited about what happened in Tangelo Park Florida. It was a community wide fix that happened without government intervention! I get it. You're probably worried when you look at the unqualified successful outcome of what happened in Tangelo Park that someone might think "Hey! Maybe the government could do that?" Well...the government could if it wasn't so inept and corrupt. But sometimes even inept and corrupt government get it right. I have been very pessimistic about the black democratically run government in Birmingham Alabama. Schools were failing. Crime was (and still is unfortunately) rampant. But, and I have to do more investigation to find out how this happened, in 2024, 91% of Birmingham public school third tested reading at grade level! Now, I have no idea how this happened. At the beginning of the 2023/2024 school year the mayor made news by complaining that 50% of third graders were truant and asked the DA to prosecute the parents, which the DA declined to do. I'm not sure how you go from 50% truancy the year before to 91% reading at grade level. But they did do some innovative ways to fight truancy. They entered low income parents who's kids had perfect attendance into a raffle for $300 towards rent or utilities. The result was a huge increase in students with perfect attendance! One could say "The parents should be making their kids go to school anyway" and they should, but that one $300 raffle was much cheaper than trying to prosecute the truant parents. Anyhoo, there are real problems in the black community, but regardless of how we got here (genetic trauma from slavery, ethnic cleansing events after slavery, Jim Crow, red lining, the CIA bring drugs in, the war on drugs disproportionately being waged against black people, drop in church attendance, God being taken out of schools, no fault divorce, perverse welfare incentives for single motherhood, "urban renewal" purposefully destroying black communities, corrupt tax officials stealing property, corrupt banks stealing property, lead poisoning in water in places like Flint Michigan, gansta rap music being elevated of music with a conscious, fill-in-the-blank), the only real concern I have is where do we (my community) go from here? Anyway, that's all I have to say. Happy Juneteenth!

    This Bridge Should Have Been Closed Years Before It Collapsed {Practical Engineering | 18 June 2024} Why Fern Hollow Bridge collapsed This is a crazy case study of how common sense can fall through the cracks of strained budgets and rigid oversight from federal, state, and city staff. And the lessons that came out of it aren’t just relevant to people who work on bridges. It's a story of how numerous small mistakes by individuals can collectively lead to a tragedy.
