I want as many of these people to run as possible.  There are still too many people who haven't heard about white privilege and I can't wait until they all chimp out over it at the primary debates.

Who remembers the spacex talk from a couple months ago?

Quote
SpaceX has won its first contract to launch a classified military satellite on its Falcon Heavy rocket, beating out rival United Launch Alliance, a joint venture of Lockheed Martin and Boeing.

The launch contract will cost the US Air Force $130 million, far less than the $350 million average cost of United Launch Alliance’s Delta IV, previously the heaviest lifter in the US arsenal.

https://qz.com/1311779/spacex-sold-the-us-air-force-a-falcon-heavy/amp/

2 more similar launches will make the cost savings exceed the entire investment the US Govt (USAF/NASA) put into SpaceX

"I'd add the consensus on diversity in general at a non-board level is that demographics diversity hurts corporate performance, while job diversity (ie having people from a lot of different fields and different stages in their careers) helps corporate performance.  i don't think either effect is massive but i only casually read a couple of papers on it."

My city is now trying to tackle the perceived problem of underepresentation of African and Middle-Eastern ethnic minorities and women in prominent positions of local government.

Yes, women are underrepresented, but some seem to forget that 87% of women refuse to participate in the full-time workweek, most women prefer part-time jobs, the remaining 13% quit their full-time job after 5-7 years.

If you have to compete for a promotion to a (more) prominent position, you will do so among male co-workers who are on the job 50-70 hours a week, you are going to lose.

Unless you are placed there, circumventing the filtering-road of merit that leads to such a position, kicking full-time hardworking folks in the face.

African and middle eastern ethnic minorities are absurdly over represented in problem statistics such as leaving school without diploma, crime, living of the dole, so you wind up with a far smaller group of viable candidates, in fact so severely compromised, that there may not be any candidates there, assuming any are even showing up for interviews.

The federal government keeps paying for rapports executed by left-wing academia that state the wonders of ethnic diversity.

My province is the last holdout in The Netherlands where these rapports are viewed with much deserved skepticism, and have so far been avoided by stating that the implementation of the advised diversity protocols would do more harm than good by damaging the public's trust, but the push from above is very real and we will eventually budge.

Quote
t recounts an incident that occurred "several months ago" when Friedland used the N-word during a meeting with Netflix public relations staff during a discussion about "sensitive words." Several people told him they were offended by his use of the full word, according to Hastings's memo.

Friedland again used the word a few days later in front of two black employees in Netflix's human resources department when they were speaking with him about the prior incident, Hastings said in the memo.

"We're not going to allow the word nigger to be used in programming"

 :ultlibrage:

"What I was just saying we were banning the word nigger"

This is the perfect low information story. 

Headline: Netflix exec repeatedly uses the word "nigger" in meetings.

Reality: Netflix exec used it once during a meeting discussing what words can't be used in their programming and a second time when discussing the incident with Human Resources.

As long as you just hear the headline it sounds like Netflix is bravely standing up to racism.  When you actually learn what happened, Netflix comes off as completely unreasonable.  Netflix's entire argument is that "nigger" is a magic word and as long as your skin color is whiter than Mocha Almond on the color swatch, you're not allowed to use under any circumstances.

Nigger has become a word white people are almost legally forbidden to say, with dire consequences if they do. It's now on a Draw Mohammed level of social censorship.

I don't go around saying "nigger" all day but as an American it really bothers me when someone tells me I can't say something, ever, under any circumstances.

The biggest concern is that it is an indicator of our nations inability to discuss issues and come to any kind of meaningful resolution. This word only makes it obvious because of its history and infamy but this same kind of softening is happening across the entire language spectrum. The danger is it reduces the primary purposes of communication, to convey information about the physical world.

How are we ever going to stop niggers from killing each other if the only reaction to factual relay of the information is anger at the "tone". Even if it is phrased better people react emotionally to the point where sad things just continue happening while people stand around arguing about how that information makes them feel down in their heartsong.


The american LTBGGIA cannot even mention they would be thrown off buildings in Iran. They self censor for fear of offense. When they see people like Trump asking for what he wants and defending his people instead of doing the same they revert to crabs in a bucket.

it's just frankly embarassing when you see a news outlet or any report that says 'the n-word' instead of saying it or even censoring letters of it. it's grown adults acting like five year old children tattling on another kid for saying fuck: 'he said the f-word!!!!'

At some point, there has to be a line where you're allowed to use a viciously vile, reprehensible hate slur in response to some of the most disgusting behavior known to mankind.

If there was some way to remove all the bias, stigma and social moors that revolve around racism and hate speech, I think at the very least that literally every human being on the entire planet of sound mental awareness can agree that the video of the black woman getting tazed in front of her her kids.... "YOU GAY! YOU GAY! YOU GAY! DAS WHY YOU GAY! YOU GAY!" would warrant use of the word, as a response.

Even the most extremely liberal/social justice driven socialist would admit "Ok, I thought about the possibility of her being a textbook nigger, while I was watching that."

you know for all the crying these guys do about patriarchial hegemonic power structures etc. they are obsessed with language and its capacity to order experience. see: every time you read about some soyboy's relief at a diagnosis "finally putting a name" to his disorder or how the DSM manual is slowly legitimizing every aberrant behavior under the sun with its refusal to consider a disorder what is politically expedient to not consider a disorder.

we're getting shoved into those people pods in the matrix by demented dangerhairs who can't live without some kinda noetic amniotic fluid to cushion them from the big bad Real so we can all swim around in our gay little fish tanks huffing soylent chips for all eternity and trying to have a conversation with the other fish in the other tank on the other side of the room with what might as well be fishy sign language. you ever notice how leftists are obsessed with logical fallacies in an argument because they're so intellectually stunted they think having a debate is like reading a fuckin' scantron sheet for the right pattern of bubbles?

if augmented reality takes off and these clowns can't grab a carton of milk across the street without needing to see prices and factoids for everything in their field of view it's  ogre

Correct.  They demand nothing more than complete submission and apologies for absolutely everything they can get.  It goes hand in hand with how you can't ever argue with any of them without their whole tactic of acting smug and throwing insults into absolutely every single line of dialog.  And it's remarkable how they all argue in the exact same fashion:  acting like a holier-than-thou prick in order to enrage their opponent, get them to say one of the many, many things they deem naughty, and then  :ultlibrage: SCREAM LIKE HARPIES :ultlibrage: about what our alleged something-ist had to say.

You can make the argument go absolutely nowhere by picking apart exactly what they said and asking why they're using such an unnecessarily rude tone over such matters.  They will try to ignore that and go back to their original point, but all you've got to do is take control of the argument and not let up on that.  They'll generally get smug about your questioning of their point, but just stay firm on that and you'll end up in an exhausting stalemate.  This works every single time, because all liberals think the exact same way, and not a single one is bright enough to escape the loop.  Try it on Reddit sometime and have a laugh.

If you can control language, vocabulary, and the medium of expression in addition to having a monopoly on deciding social taboos, you can prevent the dissemination and even the creation of wrongthink. People who can't express novel thoughts articulately aren't dangerous, especially if they know they can be ruined for saying one of the ever-increasing list of no-no words they do know.
Quote from: George Lincoln Rockwell
The Conservatives have a slogan which I think is despicable and defeatist: "It's better to be dead than red." And the Commies and Liberals have a slogan which is even worse, it's treason, they say: "It's better to be red than dead." We say this: "You don't have to be Red and you don't have to be Dead. Not dead. Not Red. Dead Reds"
