Lol. Funny as hell but still includes the ignorant collectivist view of all Jews being Zionists.
Very funny nonetheless.

...some miniseries about Malcolm X ...

Watched this yesterday and this morning. A 6-part series called Killing Malcolm X. Very interesting. Speeches highlighted in the series from Malcolm X himself demonstrated how he often talked about the white man, achieving civil rights by any means necessary, etc. And in 1965 in America, I can be a little sympathetic towards that sentiment. If I were black at that time, I'd feel the same.

And by the end of it, he seems to discover who Malcolm X's real killer was... and LOTS of fucking people from that community know who he is and what he "allegedly" did... and all of them are okay with it. :o

I gotta imagine that REAL Muslims might view the Nation of Islam as a fucking joke. Because they claim that the man Elijah Mohammed was the "messenger", which... shouldn't that blasphemy and heresy according to both Orthodox Sunni AND Shia Islam? And the series also never mentions their views about Jews, and the fact that the SPLC considers them a hate group. And this is precisely where BLM got their list of demands from, as it was borrowed from NOI rhetoric. ::)

It's pretty funny how many of these people interviewed in the show can heap hatred and animosity upon the FBI and NYC police for spying on Malcolm X and the Nation of Islam, and act like they are culpable for creating the conditions that led to Malcolm X's assassination... but seemingly completely absolve the NOI for carrying out the deed itself. I just think it's really shitty that so many people even now look up to him for how obviously courageous and ballsy he was back then, and most of them don't realize he was killed by his own "brothers".

On the other hand... the reason he was ousted from the NOI before he was killed was because he said something to the effect of "The chickens come home to roost." as his reaction to the assassination of President Kennedy. One who told people that a solution to problems could come by "any means necessary" became a problem for the NOI who used any means to get rid of him. Them chickens again?

More programming recommended to me by Firefox. The headline is pretty funny.

A Belief in Meritocracy Is Not Only False: It’s Bad for You :dohdohdoh:

https://getpocket.com/explore/item/a-belief-in-meritocracy-is-not-only-false-it-s-bad-for-you?utm_source=pocket-newtab

And more than half the people who see it will actually believe that. :raincloud:

Quote
Despite the moral assurance and personal flattery that meritocracy offers to the successful, it ought to be abandoned both as a belief about how the world works and as a general social ideal. It’s false, and believing in it encourages selfishness, discrimination and indifference to the plight of the unfortunate.

Why are they "unfortunate"? Did they all work hard, do well in school, go to college, and by luck they became homeless?

The writings on the wall. Something's coming that none of us are going to like once it's here and running at full steam. Now might be a good time for us to think about packing up all our shit and moving to somewhere where this shit isn't being shoved down your throat.

They HAVE to be close to straight up saying "freedom = racist" and "MLK was a white supremacist". It's gotta be on the tip of many tongues.

 :eyecrazy:

They consider whiteness as being some type of classism that is naturally above people of color and thus requires measures of manual equalization to correct the imbalance. It's the most snidest form of patronizing racism I've ever heard of. :D

I posted an article about that a couple months ago, written by the guy that requested the public records release and discovered this "instruction". There's even more than what's stated in those tweets. Crazy.

Also on the topic of college football, many players from all teams in the PAC 12 conference are trying to unionize and and boycot their sport both for racial inequality and demanding that student athletes should be getting paid to play.

Everyone is such a pussy these days.

Whatever happened to "suck it up, buttercup"?

When crying and acting like a child is continuously rewarded, society will eventually crumble.

It's not ideal for 1v1 situations, but that's what the DM server is supposed to cater to. Also, there are 7 other maps besides DM4 (actually 8 for the automatic mymap map between dm8 and dm1). I think there are more positives than negatives.

It happens to better players too. I know I've been in first, or second place, only to die and spawn right next to the other leading player multiple times in a row, and having to dodge rockets in a narrow corridor without any weapons myself (other than blaster).

It's not the best for 1v1 situation
