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?

The Riot Events To Be Memory Holed

Veteran blogger Pierre Legrand emailed a massive core dump of video clips of the past several days’ events

He has tried to post these in DISQUS but to no avail. He says these links need to be posted before the Left dumps them into the memory hole. To quote Legrand, “Not sure this will work out but I want to post this list of terror attacks before it’s deleted.”

Per Glen Reynolds (@Instapundit): “To be fair, the AP assures me that none of that looting ever actually happened. And based on today’s NYT and homepages, none of the other events captured in the videos linked below happened, either.”

Leftists: Trump Has Blood On His Hands!

Oh really? Here’s truth

LEFTIST LIE #1: Trump has blood on his hands because his denials and delays have cost thousands of lives because of his inaction. Is any of this true? Let’s see.

Beginning on January 6th, Trump’s team made repeated offers to send CDC officials and scientists to China to assist in characterizing the novel coronavirus. China repeatedly refused the offers.

On January 15th the first COVID-19 patient enters the U.S. Trump immediately orders selected airports in the U.S. to begin screenings for Coronavirus. By January 17th the screenings had begun. On January 31 Trump imposes travel restriction on all flights from Wuhan. On Feb 9th, Trump imposed travel restrictions on Iran. On March 11th Trump imposes travel restrictions from 26 European countries. Trump was the first leader to impose travel restrictions to protect citizens from coronavirus.

LEFTIST LIE #2: Trump dithered in Late January after his Trade Advisor, Peter Navarro and HHS Secretary Alex Azar briefed him about the Virus

Trump was the first leader to ban in-coming travel from other high risk countries. On Jan 31 Trump banned all travel to/from China for which he was called a racist and a xenophobe by Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer and others. . On March 11th Trump banned all travel from 26 European countries. In all cases, these bans were described as unnecessary. For example, here’s what the main stream media had to say:

  • USA Today (1 Feb), “Coronavirus is scary, but the flu is deadlier, …”
  • Los Angeles Times (Jan 24), “Should you panic about the coronavirus from China? Here’s what the experts say.” 
  • The New York Times (Feb 5),
    • Who Says It’s Not Safe to Travel to China?”
    • “Why we should be wary of an aggressive government response to coronavirus
    • “Beware the Pandemic Panic”
  • Washington Post:
    • How our brains make coronavirus seem scarier than it is
    • Get a grippe America. The flu is a much bigger threat…”
  • Associated Press: “Is the new virus more ‘deadly’ than flu? Not exactly”
  • CNN: “What’s spreading faster than coronavirus in the US? Racist assaults and ignorant attacks against Asians.”
  • VOX: “Is this going to be a deadly pandemic? No!”
  • Reuters (Feb 3), “WHO says widespread travel bans not needed to beat China Virus.”

LEFTIST LIE #3: Trump lied about the travel ban when he claimed that all travelers returning from China were to be banned.

Trump’s ban allowed U.S. citizens to be repatriated provided they undergo a two week quarantine. Non-citizens were not allowed in.

LEFTIST LIE #4: Trump waffled and was indecisive. A strong, decisive leader would have locked the country down in mid-February.

On Feb 24th Nancy Pelosi visits San Francisco’s Chinatown encouraging large groups of people to celebrate the event. She later blame’s Trump early “denial” for the spread of the coronavirus. On Feb 27, Trump asks congress for $2.5 billion in supplemental funding to combat coronavirus outbreak, Pelosi tables the request and proposes a ban on flavored cigarettes instead.

LEFTIST LIE #6: Trump failed to get testing started soon enough.

In the December-January timeframe Trump instructed the CDC to begin development of coronavirus screening tests. However, China refused to give the CDC actual samples of the virus! When they did, the CDC botched the development. In addition, long-standing FDA regulations prohibited private industry from developing these tests. In mid-March, Trump reversed these regulations allowing state officials to take charge of coronavirus tests developed by private labs in their states.

LEFTIST LIE #7: Trump should have locked down the U.S. by mid-February.

By March 3rd there were only 102 cases in the United States. Italy was the first country to enter a lockdown on March 8th. Spain didn’t lockdown until 14 March. The U.K. locked down on 23 March.

The U.S. is a federal republic and Trump has no power to shutdown a sovereign state. But the President can facilitate state shutdowns by declaring a national emergency. On March 13th Trump did exactly that so that by March 16th, 48 states had begun targeted shutdowns (e.g., restaurants, nightclubs, movie theatres, etc.,).

LEFTIST LIE #8: Trump Was Responsible for the national PPE’s stockpile depletion.

The national stockpile of PPE, including N95 masks was depleted by the Obama administration’s response to the H1N1 influenza outbreak in 2009 and the SARS outbreak two years later. The stockpile was never replenished by the Obama Administration. Here’s what USA’s fact checker reported:

Our [USA’s]rating: True

We rate this claim TRUE because it is supported by our research. There is no indication that the Obama administration took significant steps to replenish the supply of N95 masks in the Strategic National Stockpile after it was depleted from repeated crises. Calls for action came from experts at the time concerned for the country’s ability to respond to future serious pandemics. Such recommendations were, for whatever reason, not heeded.

LEFTIST LIE #9: Trump is overly-optimistic. We need serious leadership not flag-waving polyannas.

On Feb 24th Nancy Pelosi visits San Francisco’s Chinatown encouraging large groups of people to celebrate the event. She later blame’s Trump early “denial” for the spread of the coronavirus. Here’s what Dan Crenshaw, ex-Navy Seal and Texas Congressman said about leadership, “Exuding positivity and calmness in crisis is exactly how we ask our SEALs to lead. When bullets are flying past my head, I don’t need to raise my voice,” Crenshaw continued. “Calm breeds calm. Panic breeds panic.”
