Discrimination is a good thing

Many corporations above the border and elsewhere are drawing attention to themselves, and not in a good way, for knuckling under to leftwing nonsense. Southwest Airlines was one when just recently it said unvaccinated employees would be fired.

And then Delta Airlines, to its credit, said it would not buckle under to the same White House diktat. When that happened, Southwest had a change of heart. Delta was always one of my favorite carriers, back when I went to airports.

And then there are corporations that sincerely promote leftist imbecility. One is AirBnB, which is headquartered in … drum roll, please … San Francisco, California!

Our Downtown Casita is listed on AirBnB. I’ve tried to switch to other services, such as VRBO, but it’s stunningly complicated and demanding. AirBnB is far easier, so I stick with it.

AirBnB embraces political correctness and woke-ness with a vengeance. Here are two laughable, imbecilic examples. For the hosts — people who offer their properties — we used to get photos of those requesting reservations. And as the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. Lots of truth in that.

No way.

I like to see who wants to stay in our Downtown Casita, what they look like. If the person resembles either Manson, Charles or Marilyn, I will refuse the reservation based totally on appearance, and I see nothing wrong with that. I have refused one request due to the photo of the fellow requesting it. Just one time.

Well, that’s out the window. A couple of years ago, AirBnB made it impossible for hosts to see what the guest looks like before accepting the reservation. This is, of course, to block discrimination!

In truth, it’s discrimination against the hosts.

But I favor discrimination. Being a discriminating person once was a compliment, and I still view it so. I bitched about this new rule to AirBnb, but it accomplished nothing, of course.

No Gringos!

We have tenants coming this weekend for two weeks, the first rental in about two years, mostly due to the pandemic. It’s a nice-looking couple in their early 60s who live in Dallas. I got to see them after accepting the reservation. Yesterday, we were exchanging information via AirBnB’s messaging, and I used the word Gringo.

Oh, dear me!

Before sending my message to the tenant, I received a pop-up from AirBnB advising me that Gringo was “offensive”! But I was given the option of sending the message anyway, which I did.

Let us look at this word Gringo. All Mexicans use it when referring to Americans. The only time they don’t is when there’s a Gringo they do not know who’s within earshot. And almost all Gringos who live in Mexico use the word too. Maybe some leftist PC dimwits don’t, and we have quite a few of them down here, sadly.

There is nothing wrong with the word, and almost 100% of our rentals over the past decade have been to Gringos. My child bride prefers them. She has more trust in Gringos than in her own paisanos.

She is a discriminating woman, which is why she married me.

The truths of the matter

truth

THERE IS NO white privilege in America. There is black privilege, loads of it.

If two equally qualified people apply for a job, and one is black, the other white, then the black person will get the job. The same applies to university admissions.

This is no systemic racism against blacks, but there is systemic racism against whites. It’s not as dire as the systemic racism against whites that exists today in South Africa and Zimbabwe, due to U.S. population numbers. Be thankful for that.

There was systemic racism against blacks a century ago. But not now.

Black Lives Matter. White Lives Matter too. Ditto for Oriental lives, Latino lives and the lives of American Indians. Buildings and businesses also matter.

Michael Brown was not shot by a white cop while saying, Don’t shoot! Numerous investigations, including by the Obama Justice Department, proved that.

Police shootings of unarmed black men are significantly fewer than police shootings of unarmed white men. The greatest source of violent death faced by blacks in America today come from other black people.

Having one drop of “black blood” labeled you black a century ago, and that put you at a serious disadvantage. Having one drop of “black blood” today still paints you black, and that delivers big advantages. It can catapult you into the White House.

That’s black privilege.

Women are not paid less than men for the same work. Not these days.

There are no more than two sexes.

Multiculturalism and diversity unsettle society.

The party for blacks is the GOP, not the Democrats. See video in comments.

Truth matters.

The equality people

I FOUND THIS video recently even though it’s from last year, and I’ve been thinking about how to address the situation.

One thing that has happened is that I’m adopting a new phrase: the Equality People (EP).

These are the folks known as collectivists, leftists, socialists, communists, and they make up a huge percentage of those who vote for the Democrat Party in America.

The rest of the people who vote for the Democrat Party (I never say Democratic Party because they don’t really believe in democracy as the last presidential election and its aftermath prove) are what I call the “Be Nice People.” Most are old folks. The EPs are normally younger and naive. Sometimes violent.

Americans under age 35 have never known existential threats, neither to themselves or their homeland.* This has made them goofy and easy dupes to propaganda.

Another aspect of U.S. life is the effect of the 1960s. A significant percentage of Americans in positions of power now sport suits and shiny shoes, but surrounding them still wafts the patchouli-soaked aroma of Woodstock.

Many of these people are now judges, lawyers, educators and even corporate titans. Think George Soros, not American, of course, but think of him anyway.

A nutty culture now exists in America, Western Europe and Canada, which brings us to the video up there. It demonstrates the culture of craziness and fear that grows daily.

Lauren Southern is a social media phenom, a Canadian, conservative activist, and is just barely 22 years old. She is also a reporter of current events.

Last year, to demonstrate the lunatic level to which the culture of Canada has sunk, she had her sex changed legally even though she had done nothing to her body nor did she intend to. She pulled it off due to Canada’s EP laws and people’s fear of saying no.

Southern was making a point, and it was made well.

Last week, her account with a website called Patreon, which exists to financially help “creators,” was abruptly canceled because, Patreon said, her activities might lead to deaths.

Meanwhile, the violent, black-clad, masked gangs known as Antifa continue to have accounts on Patreon. The only “creators” that Patreon wants to help are EP creators.

And left-wing thugs.

Here’s a video about that. She’s cute and talks out of the right side of her mouth, both literally and politically.

EPs swim in a deep, murky sea of irony. Don’t be one.

Poor black folks

LEFTISTS LOVE to scream racist at all contrary opinions.

And they love all black people and know them to be oppressed by whites. Problem is that black folks in America have not been oppressed by whites since around the 1940s.

That’s the early part of the previous century. And then only in some neighborhoods.

Here’s a video by an intelligent woman who will ‘splain to you why so many blacks in America are poor.

Nutshell: It ain’t racism. It ain’t lack of equal opportunity.

It’s bad behavior. It’ll get you every time.
