Six Degrees of Racism

by: Brent Smith

There is an idea or saying called Six Degrees of Separation, where all people on average are six, or fewer, social connections away from each other. A derivative of this is a game, called Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, where you choose 6 celebrities, and through a similar process, all roads lead to Kevin Bacon. I’ve never tried it, but I understand it does work.

However, the left is more apt to play Six Degrees of Racism, where they choose six political or current event topics (one and the same for leftists), and eventually all roads will lead back to racism.

To the casual observer, this may seem incongruous, but as racism is a leftist’s go-to, can’t-fail play, it is logical that every thought or emotion will lead back to racism.

The Daily Wire has chronicled another such example.

Schools are Becoming Increasingly Worthless

from the Federalist:

Your Kids Would Be Better Off Feral Than Going To Schools That Make Them Anti-American Racists

Critical Race Theory in a Nutshell

State-sponsored instruction that makes your child a dogmatic racist relativist is not worth any benefit you feel schools give in return. Not a single one. Being Mowgli would be better.

To obtain or keep teaching licenses, Illinois now requires all K-12 teachers to indoctrinate their students in critical race theory, destructive lies about sex and gender, and other leftist mind poison. The rules clearly communicate that in Illinois public schools are no longer places to learn, but places children will be lied to, manipulated, and warehoused as wards of a corrupt and malevolent state. And this kind of schooling is spreading nationwide.

Every decent parent, family, and church should refuse to allow this kind of instruction to be inflicted upon the children in their care, and assume personal responsibility for securing their genuine education outside such anti-public schools. Those who do not are abdicating their sacred duty to teach their children to love and know the truth.

The new Illinois rules require teachers to demonstrate that they “embrace and encourage progressive viewpoints and perspectives.” It clearly specifies that these include incorporating into all their teaching and curricula neo-Marxist falsehoods about race and sex, and actively discriminate based on religion, viewpoint, and race. The rules require teachers to:

  • Directly oppose and undermine the concept of objective truth: “Understand and value… that there is not one ‘correct’ way of doing or understanding something, and that what is seen as ‘correct’ is most often based on our lived experiences.” This is an exercise in forcing people to affirm two contradictory things, as the rest of the requirements are extremely dogmatic, not open to any other “way of doing or understanding something.”

 

  • Treat themselves and students as a determined product of their race, sex, and sexual behavior: “Recognize how their identity (race/ethnicity, national origin, language, sex and gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical/developmental/emotional ability, socioeconomic class, religion, etc.) affects their perspectives and beliefs about pedagogy and students.”

So What exactly will happen without Police?

from the American Spectator:

Breaking Out the Winchesters

The apparently unstoppable nuttiness of the present moment has more faces and features than a Summit supercomputer could keep up with. Here, possibly, is the most incredible of those features: the call to “defund” the cops. Whatever “defund” may mean.

That nobody can explain the meaning of “defunding,” or the need for it, shows the rushed and improvised quality of policy — er — “thinking” in a world currently run by those whose pusillanimous elders, back in the late ’60s, routinely labeled them “the brightest generation in history.” If they ever were that bright, I believe it’s time we changed the bulb. Defunding law enforcement is the dimmest notion on public display. read more

What’s Really Wrong in Black America

from Walter Williams:

Walter E. Williams bio photoThe True Plight of Black Americans

While it might not be popular to say in the wake of the recent social disorder, the true plight of black people has little or nothing to do with the police or what has been called “systemic racism.” Instead, we need to look at the responsibilities of those running our big cities.

Some of the most dangerous big cities are: St. Louis, Detroit, Baltimore, Oakland, Chicago, Memphis, Atlanta, Birmingham, Newark, Buffalo and Philadelphia.
