Larry Elder shares a conversation he had in an airport with a gentleman wearing a “Protect Black Women” t-shirt on.
Another story From Larry Elder in an airport, this time discussion with a military dad/pastor opened up to another person expressing his dislike for Trump over calling Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas.” The Sage uses his “golf analogy” to make a point. Spec-Ops father/pastor noted that our enemies fear Trump.
A caller tries his best to prove to Larry Elder “systematic racism” is a fact. The interaction goes predictably. Thomas Sowell recently opined on the matter (via WASHINGTON EXAMINER)
A caller, while polite, was still trying to “trap” Larry Elder, but he was having none of it. In this long screed, Larry Elder travels through facts and reason to school the caller about the non-existence of “Systematic Racism.” Buckle up — it is Larry at his best!
BTW, Larry mentions in passing this story of bigotry via an MSNBC host:
“MSNBC Guest Cheryl Dorsey on Black Kentucky AG: ‘He’s Skin Folk But He Is Not Kinfolk'” (REAL CLEAR POLITICS)
“CNN guest Cheryl Dorsey slams Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron: ‘He is not kinfolk'” (WASHINGTON TIMES)
Larry Elder recaps one of the biggest lies by the media and Democratic Presidential nominee… Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. (e.g., Good Ol’ Joe). I include video “The Sage” had audio for, as well as extending some other audio – like Michael Smerconish doing what real reporters and media persons should do… that is… track down the real story [the truth of the matter]. This is Larry at his best, I only tried to embolden his points [hopefully I did]. I will be making a smaller truncated version to accent my just uploaded video, HERE.
Did President Trump call neo-Nazis “very fine people” during a famous press conference following the Charlottesville riots of August 2017? The major media reported that he did. But what if their reporting is wrong? Worse, what if their reporting is wrong and they know it’s wrong? A straight exploration of the facts should reveal the truth. That’s what CNN political analyst Steve Cortes does in this critically important video.
Jason has a way of making you look at an issue that broadens the mind.
Officer Characteristics And Racial Disparities In Fatal Officer-Involved Shootings (PNAC)
Despite extensive attention to racial disparities in police shootings, two problems have hindered progress on this issue. First, databases of fatal officer-involved shootings (FOIS) lack details about officers, making it difficult to test whether racial disparities vary by officer characteristics. Second, there are conflicting views on which benchmark should be used to determine racial disparities when the outcome is the rate at which members from racial groups are fatally shot. We address these issues by creating a database of FOIS that includes detailed officer information. We test racial disparities using an approach that sidesteps the benchmark debate by directly predicting the race of civilians fatally shot rather than comparing the rate at which racial groups are shot to some benchmark. We report three main findings: 1) As the proportion of Black or Hispanic officers in a FOIS increases, a person shot is more likely to be Black or Hispanic than White, a disparity explained by county demographics; 2) race-specific county-level violent crime strongly predicts the race of the civilian shot; and 3) although we find no overall evidence of anti-Black or anti-Hispanic disparities in fatal shootings, when focusing on different subtypes of shootings (e.g., unarmed shootings or “suicide by cop”), data are too uncertain to draw firm conclusions. We highlight the need to enforce federal policies that record both officer and civilian information in FOIS.
With the Democratic Party presidential campaigns going full steam, a number of candidates have argued that systemic racism has infected America since its foundation. Larry takes a look at former President Obama and his transition from saying that race wasn’t important to fully embracing identity politics. Larry also looks further into how disadvantaged Black Americans truly are and finds some interesting information.
I had a person say “yes, I agree with that” to my following analogy:
It is the common belief via university that someone cannot be a racist who does not have power. So – the story goes – blacks cannot be racist because they are a minority. I have a name memorized that I use in an analogy (I remember it because I associate it with General Mills — the cereal maker). I say, “So, you’re telling me that if the co-founder of the white supremacist prison gang, the Aryan Nation, Barry Mills, boards a plane in America and flies to The Federal Republic of Nigeria, the moment he touched his foot on the tarmac he is no longer a racist?” I will then sometimes have some fun and mention Barry might have ceased being a racist in midair through time zones, and then magically become one again when reaching another.
But this short video explains the ludicrous nature of this thinking, well:
