Stefan Molyneux had published a video about Race and IQ with Charles Murray, and this video was posted to a Facebook group for supporters of a broadcast radio show I was hosting called Free Talk Live. The poster called Molyneux a racist, and after concluding the video was an honest intellectual inquiry, I challenged the merits of this accusation. For this, I too was called a racist.
The show demanded I apologize for my racist statements, and I said I would gladly correct any factual error I had made, but I would not apologize for speaking truths that had upset people.
For this I was fired from broadcast radio, and my cohost even said to me at one point
“That true statement, is racist”
If truth and racism are the same thing, then paint me racist, I guess.
I have always thought it was more important to be honest than popular, and so I decided to try and educate myself more on matters of race, seeing as to how I had never really investigated the matter. Growing up in New York, I had lots of interactions with ethnically diverse people, and though I noticed patterns amongst them, I never considered stereotypes a reliable way of judging individuals, and certainly not a cause for hate, so I thought racism was stupid.
What I realized in the course of my inquiries, is that the people everyone called racists weren’t claiming that race was a reliable way of judging individuals. They were only observing demographic trends, and hate was not the focus of their efforts. They were trying to reduce the amount of conflict and violence in their society, and they figured out that discrimination based on ethnic categories was an efficient method of accomplishing this goal.
That seemed to coincide well with my libertarianism. Libertarians also want to reduce conflict over scarce resources.
In libertarian philosophy, nobody ought to be compelled to associate with anyone else. People should be free to exercise complete control over their own person and property. If blacks are committing crimes, or Jews are spreading communism, discriminating against them is the right of any property owner.
The fact that he may or may not miss out on good blacks or Jews is a risk he takes, and the merit of his decisions will be proven out by the market. Since a libertarian society would permit this, it seemed foolish that I should be compelled to support a democratic government policy which did not.
Do I even half to point out that I am So Sick of Blacks The Coloring Book Experience, I am So Sick of Jews The Coloring Book Experience, and I am So Sick of Women The Coloring Book Experience will not be available any time soon?
I am So Sick of White Guys: The Coloring Books Experience combines the long and revered American tradition of political satire with the latest popular craze, ‘adult coloring books.’
If you are sick of news reports of yet another white guy abusing his power and taking advantage of your government, your financial system, your society and your culture, to pad his own wallet, then I am So Sick of White Guys may provide an amusing outlet for your frustrations.
(Time to break out your crayon – you’ll only need one color!)
Jim Corbett and Tim Jones collaborated with caricature artist, Steve Hartley to create a collection of beautifully crafted images that skewer some sacred cows (and a fair number of pigs as well) that have grabbed more than their fair share of the pie over the years while convincing the world that the only opinion that really matters is the opinion of a white guy with money or power. Each image is accompanied by witty, sarcastic and sometimes even snarky comments that just might be the elixir you need to help you cope with what is happening to the greatest democracy the world has ever known. (Remember when our elections were decided by an insane thing called the ‘Electoral College,’ instead of an even more insane thing called Russia?)
I am So Sick of White Guys will look great on top of that pile of magazines accumulating on your coffee table you’re never going to get around to reading and will be a provocative conversation starter as guests peruse the depictions of some of your favorite prime-time foils.
It has been suggested (by the authors) that if enough people buy I am So Sick of White Guys, more people will be energized to vote in America, which could lead to a world in which the opinions and contributions of ALL people were valued equally and perhaps—just perhaps— a world in which true progress could be made toward life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. So, in a way, buying a copy of this book just might change the world. Not a bad return on your small investment.
The authors are donating ten percent of the profits from book sales to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which devotes its efforts to opposing hate groups.
Damn! I sure hope these hideous looking white European Czech women breed with some black men soon. We just can’t have such ugly women populating the planet. If only they will not be racist and spit out some mystery meat babies.
Still, hope springs eternal and there are times I catch myself having some. Or perhaps there’s an unconscious, inherent and infrastructural care about humanity’s freedom and the advancement of society. Perhaps I just don’t like seeing a perfect piece of economic art such as the United States destroyed just like you wouldn’t like to see the Statue of David marred.
And so perhaps if a Trump gets elected…
the economy grows a bit and a touch there…
maybe even we grow a pair and actually defend our own borders like every other country in the world…
I’m soon tempted once again to have real, genuine, and long term hope in the future of the United States. You might actually begin to think there’s reason to fight again. You might even have a country, a society, a community you belong to and want to fight for. Hey, it’s time to get the band back together again!
So let me introduce another reality that will quickly squash your hopes. A dose of reality that will douse the flames of a potential future.
Not because I want to be a Debbie Downer or that I’m the perpetual cynic, but there’s nothing more wasted than a life of let downs.
There’s nothing more painful than a life of failed expectations.
Who says there is no good news?
Sophia Lösche, a 28-year-old German “refugees welcome” activist, was found dead yesterday around 3.20 pm at the Egino gas station in the community of Asparrena in Álava, Spain, Bild reports.
For a week, nothing was known about her whereabouts since she boarded a truck with Moroccan license plates in Schkeuditz, East Germany. She hitchhiked to her hometown Bamberg, about 260 kilometers south.
About 20 years ago the French health service had every hospital in the country get DNA from all new babies and parents.
The study revealed that 10 percent of the fathers named as fathers were not the biological fathers of the babies.
Fucking kill me. They are going to fucking destroy Shazam. This looks like 101% pure shit.
5. “Wait a minute, if holding a shopping bag is okay and holding a purse is not, then who would hold the shopping bag if you weren’t there? Why is holding a shopping bag okay but a purse not okay? It doesn’t matter; they’re both bags.”
Incorrect. If she asked you to try on a pair of jeans just for a minute, would you do it? Probably. If she told you to try on a dress for just a minute, would you do it? No.
Why? They’re both clothes, so it doesn’t matter. Right?
Wrong. Of course it matters. Men and women both wear jeans, but wearing a dress is something only women do. News flash, holding a purse is something only women do. Hell, even gay men don’t hold purses!
If you’re saying that holding a purse for her for just a minute is no different than holding a shopping bag, then you need to explain the difference between wearing jeans and wearing a dress.
If you tried on a dress for her, even if for just a minute, even if no one else saw you besides her, what do you think happens to her attraction for you? It’s the same concept with a purse. It’s not as bad, but it’s the same concept.
