When members here stereotype NT’s in a far less disturbing manner they usually get pushback. If a member here said they fantasized about killing NT’s and followed up by saying what she said about whites about NT’s action would be taken as soon as the mods found out about it. But Yale, one of the mo...

Yeah that is cool, but when that argument made about other flawed historical figures that did great things, those making that argument are assumed to be racists and said historical figure is canceled anyway. Which historical figure has been cancelled? Jefferson still hasn't been and his legacy is t...

"Anti-racism" (or "reverse racism") is only the opposite of "racism" in the same way that "-1" is the opposite of "1". It is not a default (neutral) position, but rather an identical force being applied in the opposite direction to that which it is ...

What others here seem to be missing is that CRT provides an opportunity for the historically oppressed members of society to start taking ownership of their own narrative about how they feel. . In the past white academics, media commentators seem to be the ones writing the narrative and this is mis...

Well young lady(LOL) Most of us Boomers here on WP did not have two houses a career and a family when we were your age because we had this issue called undiagnosed autism. Because of that I understand what it is to be judged as lazy and weak because I did not obtain what my peers did. OTOH there wa...

death tends to come when we least suspect. any number of times i shoulda been gone but yet i still survive. for lord knows what. having arthritis also makes it hard to lose weight.

My parents are technically Baby Boomers (Generational Cuspers close to being Gex X) and I am Gen Z (also a Cusper and if I were a bit older I'd be classed as a Gen Y millennial like my sister). Personally, I do find it bewildering when I hear stories of my parents' experiences along with Gex X and ...

Some of my former high-school classmates have remarked that no one our age is a major celebrity or politician. This comment made me think.

They felt every candidate was part of the "deep state" not only working against them but looking down and mocking them so they took a gamble, figuring nothing to lose. Ok so what changed the GOP electorate from the 2012 election to look to somebody like Trump? 8 years of Obama too much fo...
