These guys may be going to the Racial Awareness Struggle Camps with us.
The Lunatic Left has invented something they call Multiracial Whiteness (more genteel than screaming "Coon" or Uncle Tom" at them) in order to discredit and defame Blacks that attempt to think for themselves.

Seems the best answer to any virtue signaling white who spouts this nonsense should be:

"So why don't you resign and let a person of color have your job?"

Nazis killed about 3M Poles in Poland, and more in Lithuania and Belorus. No one hears about that as well.

I heard about it from Polish relatives when I visited them. I thought they were just confused, but the truth is that I was the one suffering the politically motivated history blackout.

Nothing is allowed to compete with The Holocaust.

I remember the first time I watched Sowell. He was schooling some lady on the whole wage disparity BS in the 70's. Guy is ON-POINT!

Excellent documentary about Sowell:

The first gas experiment was on Polish Political Prisoners, Nazis first used carbon monoxide. This was only a few weeks after Fall Green.

They kept the Prisoners in the mental ward for a while after executing the actual mental patients. The had the foresters dig "drainage ditches" then give them the day off whenever they had to mass execute people.

Polish jokes aside, the smart Polish foresters instantly knew the drainage ditches were 110% BS, so they made blazes to indicate the sites, then they were uncovered after the War.

Probably my favourite aspect of Sowell's wisdom is that he sums it up so efficiently. No flowery wording added to make it sound pompous and intellectual, it gets to the point within a couple of sentences.

Right, you never hear in the US about the murders of the Russian POWs by the Germans.

What's so special about that? Plenty of German POWs were killed by Russians too. War is hell.

A quote I ran into today from the indispensable Dr. Sowell regarding the willful destruction of rigorous scholarship at the hands of lunatic ideologues:
“Ours may become the first civilization destroyed, not by the power of enemies, but by the ignorance of our teachers and the dangerous nonsense they are teaching our children. In an age of artificial intelligence, they are creating artificial stupidity.”

Artificial Stupidity, or A.S., I’m using that.

Not Sowell, but Heinlein.

I post it here anyway because:

a) I am 99% certain that Sowell has sad (probably more than once) the same thing in his quotes. But I am too lazy to try and look it up.
b) Too lazy to create a Heinlein quotes thread. Although the more I think of that, makes more sense to do.

“One of the most dangerous signs of our times is the growing number of individuals and groups who believe that no one can possibly disagree with them for any honest reason.” Thomas Sowell

"The political left's attempts to silence ideas they cannot, or will not, debate are a confession of intellectual bankruptcy."

It really is a tonic to listen to these guys if you are ever despairing from exposure to too much Leftist Lunacy. They have podcasts and books, talks on Youtube. Here is Loury talking to John McWhorter, another worthy voice:

Jesse Peterson. Not afraid to question Lez bee anns. He's amazin'

(And yes, almost all of them were abandoned/abused by a male figure or had a single mom with really weird behavior)

Here he is grilling some "Female" Pastor (impossible according to NT).

When I read this thread, it’s fuck yeah Thomas you are right on target. Why can’t you be our president/anchorman/editor and not the clowns in power?

Would vote for him if he ran for president.

Haven't you learned from the last presidency? He won't be allowed to change anything.

Still, it's useful to have truth-tellers in power when almost everyone else in power is corrupt.

I would absolutely vote for Thomas Sowell as well.

Unless Sowell is willing to die, he won't speak truth if he were president.

Look at the shit that Trump had to deal with? He pointed out that our intelligence agencies were corrupt, our media is propaganda and our enemies (although he softened it by just calling out the "fake news" which is all of it), he demonstrated the DOJ engages in selective prosecution, and that the leadership of both parties suck each other's cocks.

He is a billionaire, and he barely survived it. Sowell won't. He'd be assassinated, Ron Paul openly said if he were elected, he'd be assassinated. Trump had his own security as part of the secret service. There's no fucking areas of our government that is putridly corrupt.

Ideally, we need to aim for a Soviet Union style collapse. It wasn't bloodless, but it largely was. Civil war, that's the wrong enemy - the enemy is our government but few people have the balls to say it, and even fewer have the balls to do something about it - I don't. I don't think there are enough people yet.

"Some of the biggest cases of mistaken identity are among intellectuals who have trouble remembering that they are not God."

Thomas Sowell
A $100 bill would buy less in 1998 than a $20 bill would buy in the 1960s. This means that anyone who kept his money in a safe over those years would have lost 80 percent of its value, because no safe can keep your money safe from politicians who control the printing presses.
