Not a thing wrong with embracing a life in the arts - - that is, dirt poor as long as you can make art. A true artist or academic is not driven by money :wink: This is why I found it baffling that a "starving artist"-type character should be so reviled on a discussion group for fans of th...

Critical Race Theory and the ‘Hyper-White’ Jew ...In the critical social justice paradigm, that is how Jews are viewed. Jews, who have never been seen as white by those for whom being white is a moral good, are now seen as white by those for whom whiteness is an unmitigated evil. This reflects the ...

There are ordinary people who accept CRT and don't bully anyone or silence other opinions. I don't mean to suggest that everyone who accepts CRT is a bully. Likewise, as an atheist, I'm aware that there are many religious people who don't use their religion as a pretense to force their views onto o...

Yes, frequently. It's especially frustrating when the person has a very limited time to give me instructions and then leaves, but expects everything to be done how they want it when they come back. Then, I start doing the task and find that everything is more complicated than I expected. It feels li...

Point 2.The central assumption of the field of CRT is —that personal narratives from people of color should be central to academic study of oppression. I can't say how this kind of thing plays out in the halls of academia. I'll leave that to people who have experience in that area. However, may I a...

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img924/5517/MG84Bi.jpg My issue with this cartoon is not that it points out systemic racism. The issue is who it places the blame on. In my view, the fault lies with the people in power depicted in the cartoon who allowed their racist views to cloud their judgement. ...

I feel the same as the OP. I was never that into politics, but I have never felt more alienated from it in my life. The more omnipresent it seems and the more people try to threaten and guilt me into being involved with it, the less I want to do with it.

As I understand it, Free Speech means the government can't arrest you for criticizing it. As a kid, I saw this exemplified in an animated TV special called "Liberty and the Littles." There's a scene where a man asks a cop to arrest another man for "calling the mayor a knucklehead"...

I never said it was all bad; only that the bad vastly outweighs the good. Never let YouTube do your thinking for you. I started watching YouTubers like Lindsay Ellis because they were funny and made good points about movies (sometimes.) I've noticed a bit of a trend where certain people went from c...

Can anyone distill what the fuss is about because Ive read three articles on how she's cancelled but nobody actually explains how she "transgressed"?? From what I understand, she compared the plot structure of Disney's new animated movie "Raya and the Last Dragon" to the TV seri...

Yeah some of these extremists don't listen to apologies. All I can think is that they are very young. I hope that if this is the case, they'll grow out of it. What bothers me is the idea that defending yourself in any way is only "making things worse," something that was expressed in the ...

I just found out that YouTuber Lindsay Ellis has been “cancelled” over a tweet comparing the plot of Disney's “Raya and the Last Dragon” to “Avatar: The Last Airbender.” I have a somewhat odd perspective on this. Ironically, I recently unsubscribed from Ellis on YouTube because I felt she got too po...

I work retail. Leading up to our annual Inventory, my store was scheduling me for stretches of 8 days in a row followed by 2 days off. When I asked to get a day off in the middle to break up the multiple days, I was told the "needs of the business" wouldn't allow for it. I mentioned that t...

I like trains, but that ties in to my obsession with Disneyland. Walt Disney was also obsessed with trains.
