  • An 'Honest" Conversation About Race? Just Give Me My Coffee!

    I don't frequent Starbucks.

    If I did, I wonder how many baristas would be ready with an answer to the question, "isn't it true that the blacks who were purchased as slaves by the slave-traders were sold into slavery by other blacks as an instrument of tribal warfare?"

    Yeah, just the thing everyone else in line wants to hear when they are jones-ing for their first caffeine fix of the day, right?


    How is it that every so-called "honest 'conversation'" about race is so one-sided? Is 'honest conversation' the new euphemism for 'snooty condescending lecture on political correctness' these days?


    "Racism" is pretty much like any other economic reality: the rich of every race use whatever tricks and tools they have available to keep poor people so busy arguing among themselves that they never stop and notice, "hey, what are we fighting with each other for? we're all poor, and [I]they/I] are all rich."

    News flash: Al Sharpton, Eric Holder, Barack Obama, they are all part of the 1%. "Racism" hasn't held them back, has it?




    Clarification: racism is quite real and quite pernicious. I am not denying it nor minimizing it.

    I am merely saying that racism is not "white vs black", simply it is a clever and insidious way for rich people to keep poor whites and poor blacks so busy fighting amongst themselves that they do not even think about banding together based on their common poverty.

    You may not be denying it, but you are minimizing it. But that's par for the course for someone who quotes the WSJ and NY Post editorial pages as gospel.

        Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

                That Starbucks garbage is not even worthy of a USCHO thread - and that's saying something!

                            So the 1619 Project is getting coverage today. It's a series by the NYT timed to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the first slaves coming to America. This caught my eye on the Wiki page:

                            Portugal was granted a monopoly on trade in West Africa and Spain by the Vatican, in the fifteenth century.
                            Holy ****. I had no idea.
