Handgun Techniques – I
These videos deal with the same subject – How to “rack” a handgun slide. The first video is interesting because the instructor show off her skill at rapid draw and fire.
Does Systemic Racism Exist? NO!
By way of introduction, I am, by education, temperament, and profession an empiricist. Opinions, to be valid, must flow from, and be rooted in, objective data, not the other way around. For me, racism is objectively evil and must be called out at every opportunity. With that in mind, I’ve been interested in actively combating the evils of racism ever since I read Dinesh D’Souza’s book, “The End of Racism”.
The problem, however, is that the Left has devalued racism. Racism is now defined as having occurred if the execution of a policy results in a “disparate impact”. This means that if the outcome of a policy (e.g., educational, housing, employment, etc.,) is a distribution that is racially unequal, racism must have been the cause even if the policy was instituted in a racially neutral manner. Disparate Impact is the basis for the concept of systemic racism.
The concept of “white privilege” is a form of systemic racism in which the disparate impact of a policy results in racial inequality that favors Whites. In other words, White privilege is a specific form of systemic racism.
In the videos that follow, three black men, Colman Hughes, Larry Elder, and Brandon Tatum, address and destroy the idea of system racism.
In this video, Coleman Hughes lays out the big picture.
In this next video below, Larry Elder rebuts specific proof statements offered by advocates of Systemic Racism. As an aside, this video, according to Dave Rubin the interviewer, constituted his “Red Pill” moment – the signature event that started Rubin, a liberal at the time, on his road to conservatism.
In this final video, Brandon Tatum (a Black ex-Police Officer) and Dave Rubin discuss the reality of race and policing. It’s very long (1 hour and 9 minutes) and worth every minute of your time. However, if time is pressing, just watch the last 15 minutes.
Isaiah 5:20 – The Evil Inherent In The Floyd Riots
American justice is based on the biblical ideal that the guilty must get what they deserve. America expresses this ideal in a system of justice that assumes the accused are innocent until proven guilty. Once proven guilty s/he must be punished to the full extent of the law (mercy notwithstanding). The alternative, advanced by the morally confused Left, is mob justice exacted at the expense of the innocent. Mob justice is evil because it precisely imbues the rioters with self-righteous purpose. They think they are serving justice by attacking the innocent. God has something to say about this. Speaking through His prophet Isaiah God warns us saying…
Woe unto those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter (Isaiah 5:20)
As I think about this, it’s actually worse because rioting is not directed at the perpetrator, in this case the police officer who murdered Mr.Floyd. Rather, the rioters are targeting innocent people for “punishment”. The moral lesson to be understood is that mob justice is manifestly evil and must never be countenanced, much less supported. People lives are being ended or their ability to earn a living destroyed.
So, let me end by focusing our thoughts on the moral issue at hand – after watching the video linked below answer this question: did this innocent man deserve to be beaten to death any more than George Floyd deserved to be choked to death? Do any of you reading these words believe the people who beat this man should not be punished just as George Floyd’s murderer will be punished?
