    I’ve had someone ask me why I’m ashamed to be white when I was talking about historical facts from the civil rights movement. It was weird and an uncomfortable, but eye opening moment.

    Are there weirdos on the left being confrontational about shaming white people of all ages for the history of this country? I know the right wants ppl to believe that’s the whole left. I don’t doubt there are some people with extreme views, but I don’t know shit about that.

    When people ask if you have white guilt for simply acknowledging the ramifications of our country's history - they're being disingenuous fucks.

    It doesnt take someone feeling guilty to acknowledge historical facts.

    I'm sure on social medial and protests you could have a heated conversation, but talking to non-white non-RWNJ people you aren't ever going to be hit with "you need to be ashamed of your whiteness" unless you're intentionally being an asshole or something.

    This is what I've never understood about the white guilt thing. It's very simple to acknowledge all the fucked up shit white people have done while not feeling individually responsible. It really feels like a hard self-tell.

    I've had someone accuse me of hating my own race for the same reason.

    I can't think of an example I've ever seen where someone was trying to shame white people over the history of this country. The people who accuse THE LEFT! of that are (imo) conflating empathy with shame.

    Yeah. If there are some people who do then believe the right will find a way to amplify them and make it seem like a majority.

    Also, agreed. When you’re a garbage person it’s hard to differentiate sympathy for ppl who aren’t like you with weakness or shame.

    You should tell them that race is a social construct, used by the ruling class, to subjugate the working class.

    Basically, if they aren't anti-racist, then they are class traitors and dupes for the ruling class. The only reason someone should be ashamed, is if they are not anti-racist, and are complicit in their own exploitation and the exploitation of those that they love.

    Yep, had him in 2003 or 2004 as a professor. He just wanted to be edgy and piss people off. He had a lot of hot takes from what I remember, but the thing that really stuck in my head was him taking an entire class period to lecture us on why circumcision is bad. It was like a sociology class or something, so it was hardly on topic. It was just his pet peeve issue. I’m guessing he must have had a girl get weirded out by his uncircumcised dick and vow to change the world’s view of the issue.

    fuck this pos. The right is pushing both of these things. The right created the outrage over CRT and has been pushing outrage over GRT. The only connection is the right using these two “theories” to create and stoke white fear and violence towards POC.

    It’s the same shit they do with leftists and right wingers beliefs.

    “wanting everyone to have healthcare is equally as bad as wanting a white ethnostate” - liberals deserve whatever awful shit right wingers do to them. Fucking cowards

    I still struggle to grasp why MAGA folks went to these lengths to overturn the election. I can understand why your average MAGA retard believed the election was "stolen." Lack of education + disinformation by major media explains why those folks took the bait. But this example, amongst many others, reveals intelligent and sophisticated people were doing everything in their power to not only perpetuate the lie but make the lie a reality. Why did Ginni care so much? Why did Joe Biden winning feel like an extinction-level event for them? Why were four more years of Trump that god damn important? These people operate at a level in society where almost nothing affects them and their standard of living is incredibly high. I simply do not understand.

    The smartest MAGA follower is still mind numbingly stupid. Status has nothing to do with intelligence or achievement. Some of these people believe the bullshit, others need it to continue to bilk the even dumber ones. It’s all very stupid.

    Nearly 90,000 Small Businesses in US Expected to Close After Senate GOP Kills Main Street Relief Bill
    "The fate of these small businesses," said one advocacy group, "will be tied to those senators who voted down this lifeline today."
    [​IMG]
    JULIA CONLEY

    May 20, 2022
    Advocates for independently-owned businesses warned that restaurants, gyms, and other Main Street businesses across the U.S. will be forced to close in the coming months after Republicans in the Senate on Thursday blocked a $48 billion package to provide relief to owners who have struggled to stay afloat during the coronavirus pandemic.

    The bipartisan Small Business Covid Relief Act (S. 4008), which was meant to replenish the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) passed last year, was cosponsored by Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), but still failed to get more than five Republican senators to support it.

    The vast majority of GOP lawmakers claimed that helping locally-owned restaurants and bars to stay open and continue employing people in their communities would worsen inflation and contribute to the deficit, with Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) saying on the Senate floor that "dumping more money in the economy is simply pouring $5-a-gallon gas on an already out-of-control fire."

    As a result, said Erika Polmar of the Independent Restaurant Coalition (IRC), "we estimate more than half of the 177,300 restaurants waiting for an RRF grant will close in the next few months."

    The bill would have given $40 billion to independent restaurants left out of the restaurant relief program which passed last year but ran out of funds in just three weeks, with only one in three applicants receiving grants.

    "Ironically, this filibuster followed a vote to stand in solidarity at a similar level of funding with a group of European allies that handled some of the worst effects of the past two years with far more grace and unity."

    "Local restaurants across the country expected help but the Senate couldn't finish the job," said Polmar. "Neighborhood restaurants nationwide have held out hope for this program, selling their homes, cashing out retirement funds, or taking personal loans in an effort to keep their employees working."

    The RRF bill would also have given $2 billion for gyms and fitness centers, $2 billion for live event companies, $2 billion for bus and ferry operators, $1.4 billion for companies near border crossings which have shut down during the pandemic, and $500 million for minor league sports teams.

    The Community Gyms Coalition told The Hill that although an RRF replenishment bill passed in the House, the Senate "failed to invest in fitness and exercise despite their obvious benefits for Americans' mental and physical health."

    "After hanging on for another year, hurting restaurants and bars throughout America, especially in rural communities, may not see any relief despite the House passing a bill just last month to put more money into the RRF," said Didier Trinh, policy and political impact director for Main Street Alliance (MSA). "The fate of these small businesses—including ones owned by women and people of color that were left behind—will be tied to those senators who voted down this lifeline today."

    Along with Wicker, Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), and Bill Cassidy (R-La.) were the only Republicans who joined Democrats in voting for the bill. The Democrats needed at least 10 Republicans to support the legislation to reach 60 votes required by the legislative filibuster.

    "Senators who ensured this fate instead of providing the relief small business needs now must be held accountable," tweeted MSA.

    Tyler Akin, a board member of the IRC and a chef in Wilmington, Delaware, noted that the GOP's rejection of the bill immediately followed a vote approving $40 billion of military and humanitarian aid for Ukraine—more than $7 billion than President Joe Biden had requested.

    "Ironically, this filibuster followed a vote to stand in solidarity at a similar level of funding with a group of European allies that handled some of the worst effects of the past two years with far more grace and unity," Akin told The Philadelphia Inquirer. "It's clear that those who aligned with Senator [Pat] Toomey today have little or no desire to support small businesses."
