And sadly, there is a large group of Blacks who have internalised this toxic messaging.

Sounds like she's the one with a toxic message.

David

Sounds like she’s the one with a toxic message.

Well, indeed.

I’m hardly an avid follower of celebrity gossip, and it would’ve been a full-time job to keep track of the subsequent, rapidly multiplying memes – which covered a comical range of topics, from customer service to pizza toppings. But I didn’t spot any obviously racialised and unsavoury ones. In fact, the only memes and comments I saw with racial connotations were from people mocking the woke takes that were bound to come from the chorus of parasitic race hustlers. People very much like Ms Hoskin.

NJH

Why is it, that the prominent philosophers of the current era all appear to be wimminzes? Impossible to describe them as sages, there are simply too many of them flooding the market and all seem to be blighted by the narrow vision which their obsessions decree.

What possessed him? Will Smith’s brutal childhood, and that Oscars slap

‘I SAW HER SPIT BLOOD’

Will Smith, 9, watched his father beat his mother, punching her so hard that she collapsed. Smith has spent the rest of his life beating himself up for his ‘inaction’.

A new angle to push out there with victim cards identified, sorted and deployed.

decnine

People who make their living portraying (and normalising) hair trigger violence get preachy when one of them indulges in hair trigger violence. Aaaaaand this year’s hypocrisy Oscar goes to……….

Penseivat

Perhaps that Rock bloke was trying to do at the Oscars what Ricky Gervais did when hosting the Foreign Press awards. The difference being that Gervais was funny and Rock isn't. As for Smith, he seems fine about other men, allegedly, having sex with his wife in an alleged open marriage, but upset about a comment on her hair, or lack of it. I wonder if he's got his priorities wrong?

WTP

All you need to know about Will Smith and Chris Rock is how y'all are so bigtoed.

...disqualifying Black people from receiving the same equitable treatment that whites enjoy as a birthright.

Smith has spent the rest of his life beating himself up for his ‘inaction’.

"Has", not "maybe". The writer seems amazingly confident in his (her? its?) opinions of what goes on inside Smith's head.

It's real, only a white supremacist would say otherwise.

I've been lurking about for a while, but just signed up to share one thing. For those who don't know Chris Rock he can be abrasive at times, but for my book this one video makes up for a multitude of sins.

David

I suspect that, like so many of her peers, Ms Hoskin, our self-styled “race scholar” and “speaker of truth,” is accustomed to being deferred to by utter twats of the kind seen here, and generally getting away with incoherent half-thoughts peppered with buzzwords.

Jack Klompus

I want to read "Professor" Maia's dissertation. I'm sure it's contributed mightily to the canon.

Again only something a yte supremacist would say.

ccscientist

The entire program of the Left is built on lies. One can of course go back to the lies of commies that they are "liberating" the "workers". But today, we have the following big lies which the media are 100% protecting:
1) cops shoot unarmed blacks just for sport. In fact: a) black cops shoot more often than white cops, b) white criminals with a gun are more likely to be shot (% wise) than black, c) unarmed people shot is very few (not ok obviously) but played up to a fever pitch by the media.
2) 78 cents/dollar for women's pay. In fact a) single urban women in their 20s make more than single urban men, b) most of the gap is due to women having children and staying home (missing years of seniority), c) women retire younger, work fewer hours, less overtime, less travel, and safer jobs.
3) racism is worse than ever
4) capitalism exploits workers (as if people didn't have to work in socialist countries). The controlled experiment of E & W germany shows how much misery communism can create.
5) Climate change: even the IPCC reports, as exaggerated as they are, have to make a big deal about larger rain events and imaginary sea level rise to scare you.
6) corollary of 5, that we can just shut off fossil fuels and switch to renewables.

When you pursue the policies implied by these lies, you destroy civilization.

Richie

The normal pattern is that when a black behaves in a stereotypically black way, you're racist for noticing it, or for proposing any ultimate cause other than white racism.

But in this case, the black guy was behaving like a stereotypical white man. A middle aged man throwing a punch to defend the honor of his middle aged wife is the sort of thing that John Glenn or Toxic John Wayne Masculinity might have done.

Not that there's anything wrong with defending the honor of women. Indeed, the enlightened feminist man spends every minute of the day wondering if his, for example, his Tuesday night Scrabble game is sufficiently proactive in defending the honor of women. But it has to be done without the expectation of gratitude, and without calling into question the moxie and agency of women. You need to defend the honor of women/women don't need you to defend their honor.

ccscientist

Implicit in the comment is that a white person could slap someone on stage and no one would object. Also implicit is that the very idea of civilized behavior is oppressive to blacks and is yte suprem somehow.

The decline of Forbes is a sorry thing to see.

pst314

And here is another liberal twat demonstrating how "inclusive" she is.
Will she also stop saying "goodnight" because halfway around the world it is morning?

Adam

I must be thick because I didn't hear an insult in what Chris Rock said. It sounded like typical observational humor: Jada is actor, has bald head. Demi Moore had bald head in GI Jane. Hollywood is into remakes of action movies with POC in starring roles. Ergo - Jada is ready for the part because she already has the bald head.

Rock didn't mention Jada's scalp condition, or the "open" state of her marriage to Smith. So where is the grounds for Smith's violent defense? Rock did call attention to Jada's bald head, but she was not trying to hide it.

In the immortal paraphrased words of Rene Descartes: I am white, therefore I am right.

aelfheld
I fear I’m not fully comprehending what’s happening in that video.

Obviously it's white supremacy in action.

David

And then there’s the implication that any black viewers who don’t think Mr Smith’s behaviour was entirely optimal are merely expressing views “deemed acceptable to whites,” having somehow “internalised” the “toxic messaging” of “white supremacist culture.”

I don’t have strong feelings on the incident one way or the other – it was all rather farcical – but I doubt my first impulse would be to suggest that black people who disapproved are merely aping whitey and don’t know their own minds.

Hey David, in the UK do websites leave biscuits on your computer instead of cookies?

Oscar

In my mind, the question is not why someone, somewhere would think that there is relationship between the Oscar’s stuff and something that we all think is obviously totally unrelated. There is always someone. What bothers me is that the editorial staff of a “respectable” publication such as Forbes saw fit to use it. What is wrong with THEM ? Are they just trying to attract attention?

David

Oops. Don't know how the double post happened. I only clicked once.

It was an open-hand pussy-ass bitch slap too. It barely affected Rock. If you're going to defend your wife's honour you deck the guy. Smith must have almost a foot and 40 pounds on Rock and he hit him like a girl.

When I was in junior drama group at school, we were taught to throw a stage punch. You swing to miss, and use your other hand to slap yourself on your collarbone to make an impact noise. Watch the footage. That's exactly what Will Smith did.

Gillies: in fact, insisting on proper spelling and grammar IS white supremist. Did you not get the memo? Goes way back to Ebonics.

Will Z

7 billion people understand that if an Aussie says summer he means our winter.

The top two ice-breaking banalities on multinational Zoom calls: (a) what time is it there? (b) what's the weather like there?

"I hear that it rains a lot in England and that English people do not like the rain, is it not so? Here in Gungbungastan it is very hot and dry,so when it rains we are glad....". If you're coming in two minutes into a Zoom call when everyone is still gathering, that's the kind of banality you're likely to hear. Lots of differences aren't safe to talk about, but the differences in weather are safe.

Maybe if we were properly trained in cultural sensitivity we'd break the ice with "white people are the cancer of the world", or "the Muslim call to prayer is one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset". But we're stuck in our hidebound prejudices like "don't talk to strangers about politics or religion", or "don't be a smartaleck with foreigners who might not understand your humour" (what's offensive about those prejudices is that they give an operational definition of an outsider - somebody you can't discuss religion with and can't joke with - but white people aren't allowed to have any reasons to discriminate or "other").

Forbes

Two entertainment performers performing an entertaining act live on TeeVee, on a "Plaques for Blaques" program whose viewership has sunk like the Titanic. And so much commentary. So much meaning.

I wonder. Watch frame by frame on Youtube: pause the video, then use "," and "." ("lowercase" < and > ). I'm not sure he does go all the way to the collarbone. Also, he appears to connect with Chris a few frames before his left slows down and then reverses.

That says more about American shrinks than Americans; that statement assumes that I've classified your work categorization correctly.

My work categorization is "defecation output port software engineer" just to be clear.

I believe that I've mentioned that I worked for BNR (Bell Northern Research/Big Nerd Ranch), Northern Telecom, Nortel, and Nortel Networks from 1995 to very near the end of that company's existence in the USA. (I honestly don't remember the various naming permutations of the company.) The Canadian engineers that I dealt with the entire time were top-notch; some of the engineering management were very good as well (certainly no worse than the American engineering management).

Software engineers generally being who they are, discussions of governing systems didn't come in meetings.

Stephanie Richer

Again, has anyone noticed a common factor in all of these videos of shoplifting and "smash and grabs?" Or are we not allowed?'

Excusing bad behavior because of the skin color of the perpetrator is as racist as expecting bad behavior because of the skin color of the perpetrator.

And Chris Rock missed a great opportunity when he did not say to Will Smith as the latter returned to his seat, "At least I didn't f*ck your wife like most of the guys in this room already have." No doubt hilarity would have ensued.

Horace Dunn

Says our queen of woke wisdom and magic blackness.

Since these people are so much cleverer and more sophisticated than us plebs, I can't help wondering why they can't see the obvious flaw in their approach to educating the lower classes. Surely they must realise that if you want to win someone over with your argument, presenting yourself as a hectoring, whiny, sanctimonious bitch simply isn't sensible.

As I said, these people are supposedly the sophisticated ones, yet somehow they seem incapable of being even moderately polite and respectful.

I first noticed some political bias back in the late 70's, watched it steadily increase, and dropped my subscription around 1990.

We’ve seen so many of these things now, all eerily interchangeable, as if these self-imagined radicals were merely regurgitating the same set of lecture notes. And they are, I think, interesting only for reasons that are presumably unintended.

For instance, one gets the impression that, despite the posturing, the aim isn’t social harmony of some kind, but rather personal status. Which is to say, superiority, a pecking order. And so, there’s the tribalism, the invocation of some magical otherness, and the default tone of scolding, and the signature body language, and the curious absence of any acknowledgement or expectation of reciprocation. (Once you’ve spotted its absence, you may notice that this rather telling detail is practically a default.)

They were my go-to purchase at airport bookstores before boarding a flight. Finally decided to subscribe early/mid 90's. Stopped the subscription about two years later, IIRC. I always knew their economics writer was full of s*** but trusted/enjoyed most of the other articles until I started to notice problems with and repetitions of the AGW narrative. And other overtly political and out of place statements slipping in.

ccscientist

NatGeo can't just have a story about Gypsies, they have to talk about how oppressed they are. Every story about nature ever has to mention extinction or climate change or both. Really tiring.

Think about what it meant in the past to be virtuous. Mother Teresa ministered to the poor. Even the Marvel super heroes spend their time helping and don't go around bragging about their super powers. In contrast, the Woke super heroes must have someone to criticize, to look down on, to hate (men, ytes, capitalism). It is an inversion of virtue. It is pure status seeking wrapped in the flag of virtue. And of course in a world of billions, to prove you are truly on top, you must get more and more extreme.

I was speaking of philosophers who are currently active, so I didn't consider dead ones. That being said, I have to admit that I wasn't aware of Scruton or Kolakowski. Clearly, I have some reading to do. Thank you for the recommendations.

I really need to make more time for books. Currently, my reading queue also includes books about stoicism (mainly Epictetus, Seneca, Marcus Aurelius) and Eric Hoffer's The True Believer -- all recommended by my son, who is much smarter and better-read than I am.

And Chris Rock missed a great opportunity...

Chris Rock quite deliberately chose to bite his tongue. I've no doubt he could have delivered five or six different lines that would absolutely have become the talk of the nation, but he had enough sense of time and place, and enough maturity, to decide that he would just keep the show moving.

I have a lot of admiration for somebody who can leave his weapon in the holster in a moment like that.

By the way, if the term “respectability politics” sounds familiar, you may be thinking of this.

I was speaking of philosophers who are currently active, so I didn't consider dead ones.

Only a small fraction of Scruton's journalistic essays have been collected in book form, although many can be found in the online archives of the Spectator and the Salisbury Review, among others.

Kolakowski's books that I am most familiar with are Main Currents of Marxism, a devastatingly critical 1200 page survey of Marxism, and My Correct Views About Everything (love that title), essays on everything from socialism to God.

This guy waves the term "trans" like some magical "get out of jail free" card and will continue to "remain the same person". Kind of like that other male who called himself "queer" but is just another straight "cis"gender male.

I'm puzzled. Elsewhere it's alleged the Z symbol stands for "zapad" ("west") and is painted on the T67s and battle-taxis to remind everyone that's where they're headed.

But there's no Z in Cyrillic. The buzzy-zed sound in "zapad" is the character 3. (There are characters for the phonemes "ts" and "zh" too...when I first saw my name transliterated the J was a combination "dzh". And of course my last name, phonetically "vayt", came out "Baum" because lower-case y and t are u and m.)

Not sure what buttons must be pried off the keyboard now. All explanations gratefully received.

Directrix Gazer

Saul Kripke is still around, though I don't know how active he is. Sadly it looks like Nagel passed away in 2014. Agree that Kolakowski should definitely be on the list. I put people like Peterson and Sowell more in the bucket of "public intellectual" rather than philosopher per se, not that that is in any way a slight. Scruton comes closer, though.

But there's no Z in Cyrillic. The buzzy-zed sound in "zapad" is the character 3

"West is indeed" Запад, the letter З being "Ze", oddly enough. The Roman "Z" has nothing to do with going west, just a tactical marking to distinguish Russian equipment from Ukrainian to reduce friendly fire incidents given they are using much the same stuff.

If you look at pictures of allied equipment from Iraq, for instance, there are similar markings to help SPC Baggadonuts in all the excitement tell whether a tank was Challenger or T-72.

There is something very wrong with this woman

Karey Burke, president of Disney’s General Entertainment Content, said the company must do more to make its content more inclusive in a company-wide Zoom call Monday that was later posted to Twitter.

“I’m here as a mother of two queer children, actually,” Burke said on the call. “One transgender child and one pansexual child, and also as a leader.”

I know only a handful of families (including my cousin's) with multiple offspring where one is gay/lesbian. Yet now there are even Facebook groups with large memberships where people claim to have 2 or more kids are "queer" with any number of the 57 genders. It's like it's the new social competition. Parents are no longer bragging about their kid's actual achievements, but their identity-du-jour.
