What’s the most outlandish thing claimed to be racist?

I feel like “Six degrees of Kevin Bacon” has been replaced with “One degree of racism”. Same game...connect anything...ANYTHING...to racism in one step.

I always thought “Math is racist” was the most ambitious, but the country’s SOT says “highways”. That’s bold.

Anyone else have a good one?

The most outlandish claim is that systemic racism exists in America.

or basically any of Appalchia who can’t get to his/her Chemo appointment because of no transportation? Cause it happens every single day. But no one cares cause he isn’t in high density population and it’s not divisive enough for the media.

determine who and what you are, we call that culture. When a black person does it, we call it racisim.

The source of those cultures and the fix for them, if indeed a fix is wanted, is a great subject. But to call it all racism is degrading to blacks. If there is anything systemic, the inner city culture is systemically neutering black males; if a system needs addressing it is that one. It will cost both whites and blacks more than they want to admit, I think.

you can throw just about any rural area into that hat, as well as all of the minorities that live there too, unless you are going to convince me that blacks don't have the same problem in the rural south? Our dependence on the automobile, back to Buttigeig's foot in mouth, is more a hindrance to the poor and one that should be addressed with investments in mass public transportation, no?

and the fact remains, statistically speaking, blacks are far less likely to own a car than whites. They are also far less likely to own a home, far more likely to be incarcerated, and have , on average, far less in savings. Look it up if you like.

Now is where you have a few arguments. Blacks are inferior to whites, they are incredibly bad with money, or structural racism is real.

Or in general their culture needs a major “fixin”. They celebrate the worst of their race while often considering the articulate and successful ones as “acting white”. Black people need to make role models out of the ones who are deserving and can actually lead.

Detroit is a great example, but which party ran the city has nothing to do with it, Sending manufacturing overseas destroyed these cities, and Detroit was not the first, Camden NJ was one of the first in line here.. It used to be a beautiful bustling city until the whites all moved out into the farmland to the east that was converted into track housing. Over the generations, the money generated from home ownership was passed down, allowing their kids and grandkids the same opportunities because their parents had enough equity and access to help secure their loans.

And while whites in the 1950's were given cheap loans and ultra-cheap prices on land and housing, blacks were denied these loans, and even if they did have enough cash to purchase a home in the suburbs, they were denied. So over the generations whites who owned property in the suburbs saw their wealth increase, while blacks who were renting in the city accrued no generational wealth. it is not complicated my friend, and this is just one instance of how institutionalized racism has set blacks behind in this country. It was intentional at one point, no longer is, but is still baked into our cake.

You are more than welcome to say you do not give a fugg, I'll respect that a lot more than you flat out denying that the color of your skin has allowed you and your family more and better opportunites throughout the past 7 decades.

Bad example. It’s not what you’ve seen on TV.
Best highways and roads on the east coast, better hospitals than you would expect in rural areas.
But still, the lowest life expectancy in the US, but you know what sticks out? The death rate from accidents is more than double the national average. I think that includes overdoses.

Nothing can be laughed out of the room, as it should be, because that in itself would be deemed racist, and the left has successfully elevated "racist" to such a level that no one dare risk being called that, truth and reality be ######. Just accuse all opposition of being racists, no matter how ludcrous, and they will fold. The flip side is also true; want to rally people to your cause? Tell them you're doing it to fight racism, and watch them jump on board! I mean, who wants to be known for NOT being against racism?

I’ve said it many times. I do not care if I’m called racist. I will not change my values just because some idiot wants to throw the word racist around. The word no longer means anything to me because the left had thoroughly desensitized me to it.

The math thing is pretty bad too.

I think you highlight a pretty big issue. Racism is still a major problem in America and we're seeing it leaking all over the place. We have openly racist people on this board who think nothing of it.

But when people start attacking crap like syrup bottles or math or highways, it detracts from the actual real cases of racism and hurts the cause.
