  1. Wow! Glad I'm color blind and grew up in Columbia. Racism is learned, and this school is setting these children up for hatred. Sad. Bank Street School in Manhattan is propagating to the children they are born racist if they are white. This is promoted by Wahi, who considers herself a social justice activist and has been the director of diversity at Bank Street since 2013.
  2. You Can’t Be Both Pro-Choice and Anti-Racist Slavery lasted because slaves were convenient. Abortion remains because babies aren’t. It is a well-known fact that slavery lasted as long as it did because the Southern economy was deeply reliant upon its free labor. While some slave owners may have appreciated the idea of freeing their slaves, there was little motivation for them to do so, both because slavery was legal, but also because freeing slaves was very expensive. The cost included not just adding wages for labor, but losing the initial investment of the slave purchase. It was just simply too convenient for slave owners to continue the infernal practice. While it is easy to point fingers at those who owned slaves, few connect the dots between it and the modern-day parallel of abortion. In the ruling of Roe v. Wade (1973), much like the Dred Scot v. Sanford (1857) decision more than a century before, the Supreme Court confirmed that people can be reduced to property. More sound logic. Abortion, racism and slavery are all morally unacceptable.
  3. Sadly, this radical view is shared by many in the Democrat Party. Why is overt racism tolerated as protected speech by a public employee? How can she be trusted to treat white males in her class fairly?
  4. There sure are some classy people out there. They would have accomplished more by just staying in their trailers and just let the protestors march.
  5. "Gawker revealed its bigotry in a post where the site ironically accuses two white people of racism for launching an app called SketchFactor that will use data and crowd-sourcing as a way help people of all colors avoid bad or "sketchy" neighborhoods. In the article Gawker references, that reports on the development of the app and how it will work, nothing about race is in any way mentioned: SketchFactor, the brainchild of co-founders Allison McGuire and Daniel Herrington, is a Manhattan-based navigation app that crowdsources user experiences along with publicly available data to rate the relative "sketchiness" of certain areas in major cities. The app will launch on iTunes on Friday, capping off a big week for the startup, which was named as a finalist in NYC BigApps, a city-sponsored competition that promotes technologies designed to improve quality of life issues in New York City and government transparency. While lashing out at McGuire and Herrington, Gawker revealed its own bigotry by doing so under the bigoted assumption that scary non-white people are the sole residents and therefore the cause of bad neighborhoods. The headline goes so far as to single out black people: Smiling Young White People Make App for Avoiding Black Neighborhoods Is there any way to keep white people from using computers, before this whole planet is ruined? I ask because the two enterprising white entrepreneurs above just made yet another app for avoiding non-white areas of your town—and it's really taking off!"
