Opinion
Four Things That Are Not White Nationalism

Conservatism’s racism problem is real. So is a pattern of media smears against non-racist conservatives.


Interesting piece.  Please note that I do not share the author's support for ethnic cleansing terrorism.

Would be easier to list the Presidents that were not racist.  Ulysses S.

You could argue that Grant was the most progressive on the issue given the times he lived in.

In my back yard ...

Ohio jury dings Oberlin College for $33 million in punitive damages over anti-bakery protests

and a little bit more in depth, especially where the school claims to be poor, even with a $1 billion endowment.

Oberlin College to Jury: We’re cash poor and big punitive award to Gibson’s Bakery will hurt students

Plakas brought up the bigger national interest in the case, saying that “Defamation is where words are used as weapons … even more damaging than bullets can be from weapons. Once you are defamed there is no surgical procedure to fix it. That’s why the words are the weapons now, in our society at this time, because they cause permanent injury.”

“Why should we care about the Gibson’s? Why should the rest of the country care? What is it about this case that has generated such interest?”

“Because the Gibson family represents all of us and we are at a tipping point now,” Plakas told the jury. “This case is about fairness. It is about our youth’s education and its importance. You, as a jury, are helping your community right now, but you are also helping the national community.”

Plakas then looked over at Allyn W. Gibson, the 90-year-old who has been sitting behind the plaintiffs’ attorneys’ table since the first day in April, a walker in front of him and a brace around his neck, and the veteran attorney in his late sixties smiled and winked at “Grandpa” as he finished his opening statement.

“The school helped distribute a flyer that said, ‘A member of our community was assaulted by the owner of this establishment yesterday,’ “ Plakas said, looking directly at Mr. Gibson. “That is what the malice part of this is about.”

“Oberlin College apparently thinks Grandpa is able to assault somebody.”

America Through Nazi Eyes
The most radical Nazis were the most aggressive champions of U.S. law. Where they found the U.S. example lacking, it was because they thought it was too harsh.

Hitler’s American Model: The United States and the Making of Nazi Race Law by James Q. Whitman
Princeton University Press, 2017, 224 pp.

In September 1933, an important policy document known as the Prussian Memorandum began circulating among lawmakers and jurists of the Third Reich. The Nazi regime was still in its infancy; Hitler had been named chancellor just nine months prior, the result of a power-sharing arrangement with nationalist conservatives who thought they could control the mercurial Austrian. Following the Reichstag Fire in February of that year, Hitler had assumed emergency powers and within weeks usurped the authority of the parliament. By that critical autumn, the Third Reich had begun Nazifying the German legal code. The Prussian Memorandum that passed between Nazi legal hands was an early blueprint for the 1935 Nuremberg Laws, which stripped Jews of their citizenship and criminalized sexual relations between Germans and those thought to have impure blood. It was the foundational text of Nazi legal thinking. Incredibly, the Prussian Memorandum expressly cited the gold standard of racist lawmaking at the time: the United States of America. (...)

Felt good to see a non-animated, non-PG movie with Justine.

Turns out it sucks. Not just sucks, it set the world back 50 years. The worst Best Picture. Not just that, but by seeing it, I supported the 1962 status quo that only a Magical Negro can reform a racist white guy, ergo I am as bad as any of the bad characters in the movie. And I personally pissed on the grave of the legendary Doctor Don Shirley, a performer whose existence I was unaware of until this screening, and whose recorded output I will not in the future be able to identify, because I saw a movie that featured him, but did not make him the lead character. 

So, shame on me, I guess.
 

movies/films are art, they're subjective

Not you, but all of those involved in making that movie have some explaining to do imo.  At the very best they are completely tone deaf that their interpretation of a true story is racist as hell and I am not one to throw those accusations around lightly. This article is spot on.  Hollywood is just clueless and dripping with irony as they put on their fake ass progressive faces.
 


The movie's based on the book by the driver's son. It's his story, with his clear embellishments and faulty memory. If they wanted to do a biopic of Don Shirley, they sure could have, and I'd happily go see it. But it wouldn't be the same movie, for better or worse. Since it's the son's book of recollections his father told him, it doesn't pretend to be any sort of nonfiction account of Don Shirley. Maybe that movie needs to be made. Maybe that movie would be boring as hell. Here's a more recent take on the movie and the backlash that sums up where I'm at pretty well
