For several decades, a few black scholars have been suggesting that the vision held by many black Americans is entirely wrong. Dr. Shelby Steele, a scholar at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, said: “Instead of admitting that racism has declined, we (blacks) argue all the harder that it is still alive and more insidious than ever. We hold race up to shield us from what we do not want to see in ourselves.”
Dr. John McWhorter, professor of English and comparative literature at Columbia University, lamented that “victimology, separatism, and anti-intellectualism underlie the general black community’s response to all race-related issues,” adding that “these three thought patterns impede black advancement much more than racism; and dysfunctional inner cities, corporate glass ceilings, and black educational underachievement will persist until such thinking disappears.”

I remember when America was a free country. You could get on an airliner without an ID. Driving licenses didn’t even have photos. If a friend was coming through your city on a flight and had a few hours layover, you could meet them inside the airport for lunch or dinner. You could meet friends, children, and relatives at the gate or see them off at the gate. Parents could actually put children on the plane and grandparents could take them off.
Your flight ticket was good at any airline. If something happened to your flight or you missed it, you could use the ticket on another airline going to the same place. On international flights you were permitted two free stopovers prior to your destination. If you were going to Athens, Greece, for example, you could first visit Paris and then Rome. It worked both ways, over and back. So one air ticket, six cities.

A billboard spotted in Texas is likely to send people running to safe spaces and cry rooms. The billboard tells liberals to continue driving on I-40 until they have left the “great state of Texas.”
“Liberals,” the billboard reads. “Please continue on I-40 until you have left our GREAT STATE OF TEXAS.”

WESTERN EUROPE Iraqi murderer of German teen girl bragged: Everything is for free here, no working and a salary from the state
from Voice Of Europe:
The murderer of the German teen girl Susanna, bragged about Germany to his relatives in Iraq. He and his family would not have to work and they would get a salary from the state, MMnews reports.
During their stay in Germany for several years, Ali B. and his family apparently raved about the conditions in this country to relatives in northern Iraq. “They said that they are doing well in Germany,” says a cousin of Ali B. from the Iraqi Kurdish region.
“They would not have to work hard, they would take care of them and they would get a salary from the state,” relatives said.

Hillary Clinton is a talented liar despite a shoddy memory because she doesn’t even care about getting busted lying
Simply because she can lie her way out of the original lie.
Cover a lie with another lie.
The Democratic mantra.
Females Are Outperforming Males On Every Educational Level, And That Has Staggering Implications For The Future Of Our Society
by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
It is an uncomfortable truth that most educators simply do not want to talk about. Females are dramatically outperforming males on every educational level, and many are wondering what this means for our future. If men do not feel a strong sense of purpose and meaning, they can get into trouble really quickly. As I write this article, the vast majority of those that abuse drugs are men, the vast majority of those that commit violent crimes are men, and the vast majority of those that we put into prison are men. I began researching this article by looking into the fact that the labor participation rate for men has been declining for decades, but our problems run much deeper than that. Today, so many men feel lost. Millions of them don’t have a sense of direction, millions of them don’t have anything that really drives or motivates them, and millions of them are deeply depressed and greatly dissatisfied with life.
