The world is not only anti-God but is just plain crazy! The following gives forth some of this craziness including math being racist. Set yourself down with a cuppa and enjoy!
Where may a white person go and be welcomed?
‘In October, American University announced in its spring 2021 plan that students would have the option to apply for a temporary residential housing experience for half the semester. This program would welcome 1,250 full-time students to reside on campus from March to May 2021 in addition to the students already on campus for emergency housing, bringing the residential total to more than 1,500. The anticipated minimum cost for this experience, which includes housing, dining and health insurance, would be approximately $5,205.
While this brings excitement to many students who’ve been deprived of a proper freshman experience, it leaves me to question: Who does this plan really benefit? Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, more than 15,000 lives were lost in the DMV and 75 percent of lives lost in D.C. were Black citizens. Though Black citizens in D.C. often suffered more than white citizens during national economic downfalls, the pandemic has magnified and worsened the existing racial inequalities in the city, such as food insecurity and lack of access to healthcare.
The large influx of predominantly affluent white students into D.C.’s “chocolate city,” a term that refers to its large population of Black citizens, could evoke similar effects of settler colonialism and negatively impact the community. Settler colonialism is a form of colonialism that replaces the original population with a new invasive species. The settler system takes over the space, resources and culture of the environment it encompasses, displacing the original population. Through the Mid-Semester Residential Experience, students are entering into populations that are already struggling to support themselves through the pandemic. ‘https://www.theeagleonline.com/article/2021/02/opinion-mid-semester-residential-experience-could-enforce-settler-colonialism
What should be the goal of an educator? ‘The story of Buffalo Public Schools is a sad and familiar one: a dying industrial town, underperforming inner-city schools, and high rates of failure among racial minorities. Instead of focusing on improving academic achievement, however, Buffalo school administrators have adopted fashionable new pedagogies: “culturally responsive teaching,” “pedagogy of liberation,” “equity-based instructional strategies,” and an “emancipatory curriculum.”
Buffalo Public Schools diversity czar Fatima Morrell, architect of the district’s pedagogical revolution, summarizes these dense phrases in a single word: “woke.” Last year, in her role as director of the Office of Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Initiatives, Morrell created a new curriculum promoting Black Lives Matter in the classroom and an “antiracist” training program for teachers. According to one veteran teacher, who requested anonymity, Morrell’s training programs have pushed “radical politics” and, in practice, become a series of “scoldings, guilt-trips, and demands to demean oneself simply to make another feel ‘empowered.’” Teachers must submit to these “manipulative mind games” and express support for Morrell’s left-wing politics, or risk professional retaliation.
During one all-hands training session, the details of which I have obtained through a whistleblower, Morrell claimed that America “is built on racism” and that all Americans are guilty of “implicit racial bias.” She argued that “America’s sickness” leads some whites to believe that blacks are “not human,” which makes it “easier to shoot someone in the back seven times if you feel like it.” Morrell, who earned her Ed.D. from the University of Buffalo, said that the solution is to “be woke, which is basically critically conscious,” citing a pedagogical concept developed by Marxist theoretician Paolo Freire holding that students must be trained to identify and eventually overthrow their oppressors. After Morrell’s presentation, one teacher reaffirmed this political imperative, declaring that students must become “activists for antiracism” and public school teachers should begin “preparing them at four years old.”
Last year, as Fox News has reported, Morrell designed a curriculum requiring schools to teach the “Black Lives Matter principles,” including “dismantling cisgender privilege,” creating “queer-affirming network[s] where heteronormative thinking no longer exists,” and accelerating “the disruption of Western nuclear family dynamics.” The lesson plans, which I have obtained from the district, are even more divisive. In kindergarten, teachers ask students to compare their skin color with an arrangement of crayons and watch a video that dramatizes dead black children speaking to them from beyond the grave about the dangers of being killed by “racist police and state-sanctioned violence.” By fifth grade, students are taught that America has created a “school-to-grave pipeline” for black children and that, as adults, “one million Black people are locked in cages.”
In middle and high school, schools must teach about “systemic racism,” instructing students that American society was designed for the “impoverishment of people of color and enrichment of white people,” that the United States “created a social system that had racist economic inequality built into its foundation,” and that “the [current] wealth gap is the result of black slavery, which created unjust wealth for white people,” who are “unfairly rich.” Students then learn that “all white people play a part in perpetuating systemic racism” and that “often unconsciously, white elites work to perpetuate racism through politics, law, education, and the media.”
In later grades, the curriculum proposes a solution to these problems. In a lesson on “confronting whiteness in our classrooms,” teachers ask white students to atone for their “white privilege” and to “use their voices” for the cause of antiracism. In another lesson, students learn the putative difference between white European and traditional African systems of justice. According to the lesson plans, whites have created a “retributive,” “merit-based” justice system, which relies on harsh punishment and creates inequalities; traditional Africans, on the other hand, relied on a “restorative,” “needs-based” justice system focused on healing, giving to each according to his need, and prioritizing “collective value” over individual rights.
The new training sessions and curriculum are unlikely to lead to better student academic outcomes. Buffalo Public Schools have been an abject failure: by fifth grade, only 18 percent of students are proficient in math and 20 percent of students are proficient in English; one-third of all students fail to graduate from high school. The numbers are even worse for African-Americans, who constitute 45 percent of the student population. And according to the veteran teacher, despite the new “antiracism” programming, the district’s poor response to the pandemic has accelerated racial inequalities, with virtual attendance rates as low as 30 percent in some classrooms.
Antiracist ideologues claim to have the solution to America’s deepest problems, but in institutions such as Buffalo Public Schools, they have failed to ensure that students reach minimum levels of literacy. If they cannot teach the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic, how can we trust them to reshape society?’https://www.city-journal.org/buffalo-public-schools-critical-race-theory-curriculum
I am an independent “rebellious’ Baptist but I found this article by aspiring SBC President Pastor Mike Stone very interesting. ‘There is renewed interest in the question of ethnic interpretations of the Holy Scriptures. Fueled in part by more general conversation on issues of race, the subject has reemerged in recent days within our Southern Baptist Convention.
A noted professor in one of our seminaries told his class, ““If you don’t know it yet, if all you have is males reading the Scriptures you have a very, very misinterpreted Bible. I need sisters within the body of Christ who can help to read the Scripture in ways in which my maleness is preventing me from reading it.” He went on to say the same thing about being white, being an American, and being a graduate of a certain institution.
In the summer of 2020, in an internet conference about race issues in the SBC, one guest said he was hopeful for a day in the SBC “It will not be black faces with white voices. Or black faces with predominately white theology.”
In early December, one our seminary presidents rightly tweeted that Christians would be wise to “study the Bible in community.” He correctly stated that we can “learn from one another, share insights and gain a fuller understanding of the text as a family.”
One of his Twitter followers replied, “Amen. And we as white men, need more exegetical community with our African American brothers and sisters (and other POC and minorities) to gain an even deeper understanding of the text as a whole family.”
The examples of this kind of thinking are numerous. Some suggest the argument is based in critical race theory and intersectionality. Others label it as standpoint hermeneutics or eisegesis. Those are needful conversations to have. But Christians should primarily ask, “Is that what the Bible teaches?”
The implications of this question are profound.
If the Bible teaches that a group of Christian men cannot rightly interpret the Scripture without women present, then every men’s Bible study has, by definition, taught error. Or at the very least it has been limited in its ability to fully convey the word of God.
If the Bible teaches that a mono-ethnic group of believers cannot gain a full understanding of the text of Scripture, then no body of believers has ever understood the Bible unless that group was ethnically diverse.
If the Bible teaches that melanin content creates a hermeneutical barrier that can only be overcome by learning from or listening to others with different skin tone, then no assembly of God’s people can ever have a sure word from God unless that congregation reflects the full ethnic diversity of God’s creation. Further, if individual cultures have unique insights that add to the meaning of the text, then no believer has ever had access to the whole counsel of God. For there are still unreached people groups that have yet to add their ethnic voice to the work of Bible interpretation.
Did the Lord Jesus, our Master Teacher, ever say anything on this subject that would be more helpful and authoritative than the latest theory or analytical tool? Indeed, He did.
The Lord taught us in John 16:13 that the Holy Spirit, the ultimate author of the text, would guide believers into all truth. He, the Holy Spirit, comes into the life of every believer at salvation and He is well able to interpret the very text that He Himself inspired. The promise of the Holy Spirit means, among other things, that any believer living in any place, in any culture, and in any time period can get a sure word from God.
Of course, this does not mean that believers cannot learn from one another. There would be no need for the gift of teachers if that were so. And there would be no reason for the multitude of Biblical commands dealing with accurately teaching the Word or of correcting fellow believers in matters of doctrine. It simply means that such correction and insight are based on the Biblical text, not the gender, skin tone, or identity of the fellow believer.
As I asked in a message I preached at the 2019 Pastor’s Conference of the North Carolina State Baptist Convention, “If being a white American male presumes exegetical error…and I reach out to an olive-skinned Greek sister…and she has a different interpretation…how would we know that it’s my white American maleness that has led to the error and not her Greek olive-skinned femininity? We would have to judge that by going back to the inspired text. She would owe no particular hearing to me because of my gender, skin tone, culture or experiences. Nor would I to her.
If our gender, ethnicity, or personal experiences cause us to see something different in the text, then those biases lead to eisegesis and should be rejected, not embraced in the studied search for Biblical truth. We are indeed called to “rightly divide” or “accurately handle” the word of truth.” But that exegetical work will separate theological propositions into categories of right and wrong, truth and error, and sound doctrine and false doctrine. The divisions of sound exegesis are not male truth versus female truth, black theology versus white theology, or American doctrine versus Asian doctrine.
I agree with the seminary president’s original tweet. It is wise to study the Bible in community.
We can and should benefit from the community of faith around us. We each have biases and blind spots that should motivate us to study the Word together, learning as “iron sharpens iron.” But in Matthew 22:29 Jesus told His critics, “You do err, not knowing the scriptures.” He did not say, “You do err, being all first-century Jewish males.”‘ https://pastormikestone.com/are-there-ethnic-interpretations-of-the-bible/
I have never gotten addicted to cricket even though we have lived in a Commonwealth nation for well over forty years now. Be that as it may many are Cricket fans but unfortunately Cricket has now gone WOKE. This is from New South Wales’ One Nation state member Mark Latham’s Facebook page.
‘FROM THE OUTER AT THE SCG YESTERDAY, SOME OBSERVATIONS: 1. Test cricket has signed a suicide note, in thinking that fans will pay $100 a seat for 13 overs/hour, endless orange vests on the ground wasting time, Pujara/Vihari batting like statues, with larrikin barracking to alleviate the boredom now banned. 2. The Indian fans yesterday in front of the Trumper Stand were giving it to Tim Paine big-time for his dropped catches, with funny songs and chanted slogans. Paine heard the razz and turned around. If he was as thin-skinned and spoilt as Mohammed Siraj, he could have screamed ‘offence’ and had the fans ejected from the ground. But barracking like this is actually part of the entertainment at the ground, especially during boring periods of play. I say ‘well done’ the Bharat Army and Tim Paine. 3. It says so much about the media elites that, with absolutely no evidence, they are still trying to fit up those guys at the SCG on Sunday as racists. The elites want and need racism to verify their own warped, hateful view of Australia. Where none exists, they simply invent it. As they did with Adam Goodes, and now Siraj. 4. Three different groups of fans near the ‘Siraj incident’ on Sunday (including Indian fans) have now come forward to say there was no racial content. Yet NSW Labor’s Jodi McKay is calling for life bans on these innocent fans. She will always barrack for other countries ahead of the rights and freedoms of Australians. 5. The tragedy of today’s cricket commentary is its lack of authenticity, as we found out when Shane Warne and Roy Symonds gave us their real views, believing themselves to be off-air. Why do people live a double existence, muffling their own free speech, for the sake of false niceties? I will never understand.’https://www.facebook.com/MarkLathamsOutsiders/?ref=page_internal
Uncle ‘Al Sharpton said last week on MSNBC that President Trump loses his temper “because he is covering up for his lack of knowledge….Donald Trump always wanted to be in the circles of influence and was always rejected. Always seen as this outer-borough guy whose daddy had money. You know, with Roy Cohn—they were not considered respectable.”
No doubt President Trump has associated himself with disreputable people, been divorced twice and sexually involved with various women. Furthermore, he has made revolting remarks often about disgusting people. Moreover, he is often rude, crude, and lewd, but being castigated by low-life Al Sharpton is outrageous, almost funny.
When one knows some of the highlights, or the lowlights, of Al’s life and listens to him for a few minutes, it is obvious that for him to call Trump ignorant is like a skunk accusing a rabbit of having bad breath.
The Reverend Sharpton is a high priced but lowdown clown who doesn’t seem to know that the foul breath of prejudice is deadly to the soul.
Sharpton’s first marriage was to Marsha Tinsley that lasted about a year. His second marriage was in 1980 to backup singer, Kathy Jordan, whom he met while on a James Brown tour in 1971. They separated in 2004. He has been seen at high profile events with Aisha McShaw, 20 years younger who without any hesitation has claimed to the media that she is Sharpton’s “girlfriend.”
Just Richest, an entertainment publication, declared, “This in itself would not be an issue, as the reverend is at liberty to date owing to his over a decade separation from his wife. But the issue rises from the fact that he is still legally bound to his former wife as their separation is yet to be legalized into a formal divorce.”
Al’s divorce seems to be in question since Heightline reported, “The preacher and his wife got amicably divorced in 2004. It is common knowledge that while still married to Kathy, the Social/political activist had a girlfriend in the person of Aisha McShaw.” Well, if true, it is tragic and no true Baptist preacher would try to defend such sleaze.
Al asked, “Don’t I have a right to date when my marriage has been over for a decade?” Yes, he does but not before he is divorced and there are many news accounts reporting that he is not divorced.
Moreover, his girlfriend dresses like a typical Hollywood floozy and has a daughter from a “previous relationship.” Just the observation of one Baptist about another Baptist.
The Reverend Al was a member of the Church of God that ordained him at age 10. Later he became a Baptist; however, he is a preacher who seldom preaches. When he does preach, it is contemptible preaching. His record reveals him to be a hater of Whites, Jews, and Conservatives of any color.
Al and his buddies at Black Lives Matter and the New Black Panther Party held a protest in defense of anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan and his black racist hate group, the Nation of Islam.
When speaking at New Jersey’s Kean College in 1994, Sharpton said: “White folks was (sic) in the cave while we [blacks] was (sic) building empires … We built pyramids before Donald Trump ever knew what architecture was … we taught philosophy and astrology (sic, astronomy) and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.”
Al neglected to mention that on the black continent of Africa, Blacks were so backward, they had never seen a wheel in the 1800s! Oxford University Professor John Baker, reveals in Race that the wheel was unknown in sub-Saharan Africa even in the mid-1800s. Baker quotes the missionary-explorer David Livingstone’s diaries which tells of thousands of Africans in Linyanti, (now Namibia) to see his “vehicles in motion and thus for the first time to observe the rotation of a wheel.”
Al would have us believe that Blacks developed vast civilizations (even the pyramids) yet less than 200 years ago did not know of the wheel. It seems the wheel was first used in Sumer in present-day Iraq, comprising the southern part of Mesopotamia in about 3500 BC, and spread across Europe, Asia, and North Africa.
The Kean College speech featured Sharpton explaining that America’s founders consisted of “the worst criminals, the rejects they sent from Europe … to the colonies.” “So [if] some cracker,” he continued, “come and tell you ‘Well, my mother and father blood go back to the Mayflower,’ you better hold your pocket. That ain’t nothing to be proud of, that means their forefathers was (sic) crooks.”
Real scholarship, huh? Evidently, Al’s forte is not English or history! What was that about “lack of knowledge?”
Al again showed his hatred for America when he said, “While the rest of the country waves the flag of Americana, we understand we are not part of that. We don’t owe America anything—America owes us.”
The Baptist preacher’s statement on perversion clearly puts him in another denomination. He declared, “As a Baptist minister, I don’t have the right to impose my views on anyone else. If committed gay and lesbian couples want to marry, that is their business; none of us should stand in their way.”
As a Baptist minister he has the right and obligation to preach truth. But it seems the reverend might be planning an international office in Sodom.
When David Dinkins (an African American) was mayor of New York City, Sharpton angrily denounced Dinkins (when the black mayor was unsupportive of Sharpton’s activities) in the following terms: “David Dinkins, you wanna be the only nigger on television, only nigger in the newspaper, only nigger that can talk. Don’t cover them, don’t talk to them, ’cause you got the only nigger problem. ‘Cause you know if a black man stood up next to you, they would see you for the whore that you really are.” He also referred to Dinkins as “that nigger whore turning tricks in City Hall.”
Sharpton, like many other Blacks, has no problem using the forbidden word. “There are white niggers. I’ve seen a lot of white niggers in my time.” But, don’t you be so careless.
Sharpton was involved in an incredibly sleazy episode that almost destroyed white, former Assistant District Attorney Steven Pagones who was accused by Tawana Brawley in 1987 of raping her. Al jumped to her defense (since she was black) and was another opportunity to “play to the gallery.” Sharpton was found guilty of defamation of the prosecutor by a jury in a New York court. Moreover, Sharpton has refused to accept responsibility and expresses no regret for defaming Mr. Pagones.
With such a deplorable résumé, it is no surprise that he is powerfully ridiculed on the one side and weakly defended on the other side. Liberals cringe during Al’s television show as he stumbles through hollow, hateful, and humiliating diatribe. Thinking people laugh.
A 2013 Zogby Analytics poll found that one quarter of Blacks said that Al Sharpton speaks for them. Radicals like Sharpton have taken “civil” out of civilization and put “cult” into culture. He speaks with forked tongue so it might be wise for Blacks to be more careful whom they have speak for them.
With Al Sharpton’s dismal, disgraceful, and dubious life, he has the gall to criticize Trump for anything. Maybe this an example of the pot calling the kettle black.
But then, that might appear to be racist.’ http://donboys.cstnews.com/al-sharpton-charging-trump-with-lack-of-knowledge-is-like-a-skunk-accusing-a-rabbit-of-having-bad-breath
Is it possible for a nation or a state within a nation to have a two tired justice system and do true justice? That is, one law for those of one ethnic group and another system for the rest of society! Well, as I said yesterday, the Australian Northern territory is seeking to do just that. Here is a video from Sky News Australia informing us about such a move.
There are some people you NEVER want to meet. Here is one of them.
‘A radical Drexel University professor who once wished for “White Genocide” for Christmas and hoped to “Abolish the White Race” is under fire again. This time, he said he wants to “vomit or yell about Mosul” after someone gave their seat to a uniformed soldier.
“Some guy gave up his first class seat for a uniformed soldier. People are thanking him. I’m trying not to vomit or yell about Mosul,”
Senior Townhall columnist Kurt Schlichter slammed Ciccariello, saying: “You tried not to vomit or yell? No, you just sat there quietly like a little bitch. Ignored, irrelevant, wishing you were a man.”
“Because you’re a douchebag?” tweeted prominent conservative Ben Shapiro.
This isn’t the first time the Drexel professor has been criticized. Last December, he tweeted how “All I want for Christmas is White Genocide.” Dexel investigated the issue and ended up releasing a statement claiming the professor’s tweets fall under the category of “protected speech” and that he wouldn’t lose his job.
Ciccariello, meanwhile, brushed off the backlash, insisting it was just a joke because “White isn’t a race” and blamed white supremacists for trying to make his tweets into an issue.
The professor has made a near-habit of posting inflammatory tweets on social media. He once tweeted “Abolish the White Race” and claimed that Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof “simply put into practice what many white Americans already think.”
He has also claimed that the murder of some 4,000 white people during the Haitian Revolution was a “good thing.”’ https://heatst.com/culture-wars/giving-up-a-seat-for-a-soldier-makes-pro-white-genocide-drexel-prof-want-to-vomit/
Nice guy! (NOT)
