    Yeah that image was a Babylon Bee story like a week ago, but the only reason that image is believable is because you've seen real ones with similar themes.

    And as far as "systemic racism" goes tell me what's more systemic than coding it explicitly into the system's laws by Congress giving only non-white farmers cash and LA giving only non-whites $500/mo up until $9000.

    White professor sues N.J. college for discrimination, says Black colleagues make more - nj.com

    In the lawsuit filed Friday in federal court in Camden, William T. Lavell, 66, claims that he is paid between $45,000 and $50,000 less than two Black engineering professors despite having similar qualifications and experience.

    ...

    Jamison Mark, an employment lawyer practicing in Springfield, said lawsuits claiming reverse discrimination generally have to meet a slightly higher standard in court when suing under discrimination laws because the plaintiff is not a member of a minority group.
    I don't recall the 14th amendment only applying if you are minority in the US. Does the 13th amendment only apply to black people too?

    A plaintiff of color has to prove that he or she was discriminated against only due to race, or a female only due to her gender. But he said the courts have held that a plaintiff who is part of the majority group also has to prove that the employer is “of the type that discriminates” against the majority by, for instance, showing a pattern of discrimination against a certain type of employee.
    Today I learned that females are a minority. WTF?

    Your relative youth is showing. The late 60's and 70's were all about women as minorities. Several black guys older than me even (this was some 15-20 years ago) were still grousing about how white women got appended on to the civil rights legislation.

    It's the equivalent of telling folks on this board that they'd have to train or get fined.
    Except I don’t think most on this board would be fine with your scenario. I know I would not be. I would be as much against a public health initiative that fined people as I am against mask mandates and lockdowns. That may be true of most “fitness” types, however, I think this board would take exception.

    Many months ago I asked jfsully what would have a greater impact on public health and mortality, mask mandates or mandatory nutrition standards and public exercise. I let the question and his response end there because I felt that was enough to make the point. If you can justify mask mandates and lock downs as in the interest of the public good (based on bullshit like -‘maybe it helps a little’) then you can justify damn near anything. Surely we would achieve much better results; for all Americans, by mandating forced exercise and diet standards.

    I'm increasingly at a loss on so many posts in this thread.

    The military was going to stage a coup for Trump. The military is now going full Wehrmacht on personal oaths to the Dear Leader. Both of these were/are true?

    Sidney Powell was the oracle of Delphi invoking the Kraken in her zeal over vote fraud. She is now claiming no reasonable person would have/should have taken her assertions seriously in her defense in the Dominion suit.

    QAnon has the no-shit real inside scoop on what's going on. QAnon is a bunch of loonies.

    Perhaps a collective (you should forgive the dialectic term) deep breath is in order along with some sober reflection here.

    Meantime, DB and I have had both our shots and are dispensing with our masks. Special Olympics is cycling back up for Spring Games next month, with granted, some overly cautious temperature taking and screening protocols. But at least I can start coaching the athletes once again. Finally, the park district has green lighted me to start Jujitsu classes once again.

    Life is going on. Maybe not in as complete a manner as before and we would like just yet, but the sheep are gradually overcoming and ignoring their shepherd overlords.

    It is no longer obvious what is satire and what is real.
    The doctored images and the real ones are equally ridiculous and inflammatory.

    I came across this video on life in North Korea, which was recently published by the German State Propoganda Media outlet:
    It appears to be real, even though it could just as easily be viewed as a satirical take on communist/socialist propoganda
    Life in North Korea | DW Documentary - YouTube

    I actually watched the whole thing.
    It is a look at what "new normal" often means under communism or socialism.
