Why are democrats so obsessed with falsely accusing white people of being racist from the time they are born ?

Look there and find your answer !!! Its not a difficult assignment to find the answer unless a person is unconscious !!!
Will you be attending the funeral and at the grave site when racism is buried or will you be a part of what is being buried ? It is a choice !!!

Right? How are more people not reacting to this vs. the questionable idea he put forward?


Found a bio for him:


I have a PhD from Purdue University’s Rhetoric and Composition Program and currently teach at Macomb Community College. My early work focused on the ways that narratives about black athletes constructed blackness along a narrow and limiting spectrum. I’ve shifted that focus a bit, and for the last several years my scholarship has concentrated on privacy, institutional tech policy, digital redlining, and the re-inventions of discriminatory practices through data mining and algorithmic decision-making, especially as these apply to college students. I am currently developing a project that looks at how popular misunderstandings of mathematical concepts create the illusions of fairness and objectivity in student analytics, predictive policing, and hiring practices.

Oh, the snake videos cracked me up! We don't get anything that exciting on ours. Just the UPS guy, the FedEx guy, the mail carrier, and family visiting.

When everything is racist, nothing is racist (or something like that).

No, but you might be if you come to this conclusion based on the article.

Crime is increasing in some areas. Of course a good security system is of benefit. I'm not sure if this is some bubble-think that every place is gentrified and safe.

There was a surge in car break-ins around here earlier this week. The dozen or so cameras that captured pictures of the two perps were definitely racist cameras.

If you read what he wrote, you'll see he quoted a line from an article that has the same myth so many other people have repeated: “Black women are the most educated and entrepreneurial group in the U.S., yet they receive less than 1% of VC (Venture Capital) funding.”

This guy teaches college and doesn't know how to read charts?
