YES - referring to someone as Squaw when that individual is misusing a bloodline percentage was in poor taste and I do apologize! As they say, two wrongs don’t make a right.

I guess me asking (and providing video) of the CNN reporter / Democratic Party referring to Kanye as a -Dumb Negro- was out of line? I’ve never used the ‘N’ Word here as slang or in a derogatory way.....but if that is how you or anyone else here received it......offended by my question......please accept my apologies and I’m happy to go back and delete the post.

The only other time I remember you raising a point of contention was with my use of the term, hermaphrodite, several months ago.

Again, All apologies to anyone here that I have offended......probably best that I go put up my shovel.

After a day of sleep and further review of my post over the past few weeks, other than using the term, Squaw......what else are you referring to?

Token Negro = Dumb Negro?

For those who didn’t watch the video, it was a black CNN show host who said, “this is what happens when a Negro doesn’t read,” regarding Kanye West’s visit with our President. Someone else during that broadcast referenced Kanye West was being a, Token Negro.

Asking if the Democratic Party was saying that a Token Negro equals a Dumb Negro isn’t me being racist......and respectfully, Sir, I resent the implication if in fact that is what you’re referencing?

re: Token Negro = Dumb Negro

Why didn’t any Democrats come out and say this is wrong? Why didn’t any Democrats point out that it was a good thing that Kanye West was being involved, possibly encouraging younger people to do so??? Like when the musicians would promote Rock The Vote.

Just imagine if Sean Hannity said, “that’s what happens when a Negro doesn’t read” when Obama hosted a rapper at the White House......everyone here and on TV would be SCREAMING about how wrong that was.

And guess what......they would be right!

And guess what......Republicans would stand up and say that was wrong!!!

Can you see the difference?

All I was really saying is that in these times,us white people really shouldn't be using the term "negro," and it doesn't set anyone up to listen to you when you use terms like that. That one is definitely outmoded, if not "offensive" per se.
Squaw, on the other hand, is definitely an outright slur and is seen as such.
If you want people to listen, let alone be persuaded, HOW you say it actually does count. And saying it that way, even supposedly quoting someone, only makes the other side dig in their heels.
That's really all I've got to say. I said what I said as a friend and I'm sorry you feel insulted.

Supposedly?

A) you didn’t watch the video?
or
B) you’re assuming I didn’t make the quote up?

I don’t believe using the term -Negro- when referring to a quote is racist at all. Personally, I don’t see it as being any different than saying -Negro League- when discussing a time in baseball long ago. It’s perfectly acceptable to say, so & so played in the Negro League.

When I asked black colleagues I work with if they had heard what the black CNN reporter said......then I quoted it to them before playing the video, not one of them said I was doing anything wrong. Of course, this is probably due to the fact that I’ve worked with them for over 25 years and they know me as someone who doesn’t go around using the ‘N’ word.

I’m happy to apologize again for using -squaw- as a slur......but other than that, I’ll let my years of posting here at SYG represent the good history I’ve established and I’ll heed your concerns when posting in the future!

Identity Politics, as it's defined from within and being implemented, privileges one voice over another, fundamentally. It believes that for one group to speak, another must be silent. That's my lived experience of it, at the level of working in an institution that's adopted it as policy. We can argue about the theoretical underpinnings of it but as you say yourself, it's about praxis, not abstract ideas. But my experience isn't necessarily extendable to the situation as a whole.

Either way, I don't think Trump is a phenomenon reducible to Identity politics, or a backlash against it (I'm sure you don't either). My real interest in it is why so many people who would've traditionally called themselves Left wing appear to be turning away from traditionally (but in my view now only nominally) Left wing political parties. My perspective was always focused on Britain/Europe but the Trump election made me interested in the US, too. I read J.D. Vance's book, Hillbilly Elegy, alongside, albeit more polemical stuff like Mick Hume's Revolting, which lead me to make real connections between what was going on in the US, with Trump, and what I saw happening here, with Brexit. As someone who considers themselves 'of the Left' who voted for Brexit against the EU, and (had I ben eligible) would've probably voted for Trump over Hillary (at least in hindsight) that interests me.

right. because it’s not. here for example some tribes said no oil pipeline through my water supply and the pipeline went through anyway.

black football players started protesting the killing of black people by police and the police keeps killing and the protestors get branded traitors

so, no, i don’t see this phenomenon in practice

here it’s always the same people that keep getting silenced

i do. i said so before. i see it primarily as an ethnic phenomenon.

sure it has other pieces but to me that’s the core.

this is the corollary of what the republican party has been doing since, oh... the 60s, 70s?

why so many people are turning away, probably because with universal ideals disappearing people are going back to their tribal identities.

and yes the loss of the ideal is why i think a way forward is important. what was called “the vision thing” in the clinton era. where is the new enlightenment?

here 2 interesting bits of stuff to make us all worry:

1. prof. brian o’blivion (lol) on the return of tribalism
https://youtu.be/FvATW2nfYZg
(had he only lived to see social media...)
long live the new flesh...

2. this article that harks back to david hume
https://www.wired.com/story/why-pure...can-tribalism/

yep, it’s the fall of rome... and attila is coming

Trump is the end result of a society/culture that has placed financial achievement above anything else. This is purely a class/money issue. The racism, the sexism, the patriarchal shit, the willful neglect of people who need help, all this comes out of the greed of the sociopaths on top.

i call it the corollary this person calls it the end, same difference—the monster is out

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...hern-strategy/

please note that the article correctly points out that for the majority of american history politics was OVERTLY racist.

in other words: the promise of the enlightenment was delivered only to one ethnic group

(because, as previously: passion enslaves reason, affect creates cognitive bias)

yes yes. we’re fucked as a species.

another chance thrown out the window

More Trumpjudges Ⓡ, this time, featuring NO HEARINGS!



Alison Jones Rushing, who graduated law school in 2007, is potentially one of the better selections in Trump’s cavalcade of mostly laughable judicial nominations. Beyond KKK lover Brett Talley, we’ve had Jeff “Satan Boy” Mateer, Matthew “the dog ate my homework” Petersen, and Ryan “what I meant when I said minorities were whiny ethnics was…” Bounds. At least she’s not in any danger of getting an ABA “not-qualified” tag like now confirmed Judge L. Steven Grasz and her appellate practice is certainly a better résumé line item than “anti-gay blogger” like confirmed Judge John Bush. When your expectations are so low, the little things matter.

https://abovethelaw.com/2018/08/trum...chool-in-2007/


in other judicial news: Manafort will have to wear his prison onesie to get sentenced

A federal judge on Wednesday rejected Paul Manafort’s request to wear a professional suit during a hearing later this week about his sentence, noting the former Trump campaign chairman is now a felon who has lost the right to wear street clothing in all his court proceedings.

“This defendant should be treated no differently from other defendants who are in custody post conviction,” U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis III wrote in a sharply worded order.

Thank President Trump! He's at least trying to stop these organized peace invasions, now he needs to address the situation in Honduras, to the point of sending in troops and overwhelming surgical force to take out the gangs and domestic terrorists that force the citizens to flee. The country has just been slammed with 2 massive hurricanes. We have too much to deal with and the economy is just about to tip.

Identity Politics are not class based: the struggle is not for land, the struggle is to have an identity.
