    Ok...thank you for clearing that up.

    If a private entity wants to create a charity for a group they can by all means do so.

    I don't think the government should enact racial discrimination on behalf of private sector entities.

    If that is allowed....it's pretty hard to argue against anyone doing it.

    Clearly California sought to remove their civil rights act to do this racist garbage. There's a process for this....they can stand up in debate and explain whose children they want to oppress and why.

    Then the federal government should step in and explain why they aren't allowed.

    Spending $200K/yr / migrant child, including in-person education

    Seems greater than the level of spending for any other disadvantaged group

    The lady in the article sounds like she's suffering from projection and or wants to control how people of color think.

    I don't even get it. What's wrong with Rumble? It's awesome to see a site becoming a viable competitor to YT

    So you don't know what you're talking about or whom you're talking about...just making assumptions. And no non-rumble link to explain what it's about.

    Appears, to you. Well, that settles it.

    Of course she isn’t. What gives you the idea she is trying to explain history? The context is US history, what is in the articles at least is about the behaviour of a few people within that history. Where does anything indicate she is trying to ‘explain history’?

    What negative racist generalisations does she make that you base that conclusion on?

    No facts were given, not even a short synopsis. Something about Oakland and discrimination, but what exactly?

    Sure, because all sources are equal and equally valid.

    Did you know that there are non-rumble sites that are also informative with a right-wing perspective? It's true!

    Rumble is one site, that has videos. Posting a link to a video is not much different than embedding one except rules here are that the embedded ones must be accompanied by a synopsis.

    Also, rumble is only one, single site while "MSM" are a multiple of diverse sites with varying degrees of accuracy. That you blanket veto "all of them" says more about you than about anything else. You're not about sharing information, you're about shilling this particular site.

    You never learned the importance of "critical thinking" in High School Wellness class?[/quote]Oh, goody, personal insults is it? Great!

    Straw man. I have not claimed to be unbiased or even less biased than you. :) I haven't got a choir; I'm not preaching.

    She says something about these millions of latino voters wanting to hate people....

    Do you really want me to quote her?

    Which she characterized as white supremacist....

    You can ask me to interpret her vague nonsense...or you can agree it's too vague.

    Which do you want?

    Why do I care where the link is from?

    Sources don't affect truth.



    Golly gosh....would you like a pile of evidence?

    Wanna see Democrats supporting racial quotas?

    How about Democrats in favor of racist indoctrination?

    Different medical treatment based on race?

    It's an almost endless list of racist policies. Where do you want to start?

    "And so whiteness as an ideology is rooted in America's history of white supremacy - right?"

    ‘America’s history of white supremacy’ - do you take that to mean American history is white supremacy?

    How else am I to take it? She doesn't explain it at all.

    Do you think she's talking about white supremacist groups (people who actually have a white supremacist ideology)?

    Are you being serious here? Do you mean that you don’t understand the meaning of ‘a history of...’?

    If it is said someone or something has a history of, whatever, then that is something that person or thing has done or demonstrated or whatever in the past - a history of. It is not an all encompassing statement. I am assuming you know that.

    The US does have a history of white supremacism, this is undeniable. For most of US history non-whites have been treated differently, whether classified as sub human or denied many of the basic rights white citizens had. More specifically, membership of actual white supremacist groups and the influence of these groups in some historical events is also a feature of US history.

    Is this all of US history? Of course it isn’t. Where does anyone claim anything like that? I have an otherwise good sheepdog who has a history of too enthusiastically chasing stragglers. When I say this dog ‘has a history of’ this is a particular way of phrasing something. If I said ‘all he ever does is...’ then that would have a different meaning. But of course you know this.
