People who are twisting themselves in knots to tickle confirmation bias among a group of morons. In days past they'd be known as "court jesters". Today, we call them "journalists".

We jumped the shark when comedian Michael Richards was raked over the coals for being a racist after he returned like for like against a pair of hecklers at one of his shows. How long should/can a man stand in front of people and be called "cracker" by a pair of blacks before his response with the equivalent and appropriate slur in retaliation isn't knee jerked against as something more than what it was, a man lashing out in response to being provoked and attacked?
Another way to look at it: if i do something in response to something you did, it doesn't change that I did that thing. I can blame you for bringing out the worst in me, sure. But in the end, its still ME that did it.
The woke continue imitating their favorite German group from the early to mid 1900s and like them, blame one group above all for all of the problems in the world.

So I apologize in advance if I duck out on this thread for a bit at a time---but I just read this and while I normally don't post in the mud pit....this seems like it belongs. I cannot fathom the level of racism one must have in them in order to frame the actions of other races as rooted in white supremacy. How far is academia willing to go in its fight to excuse the actions of any person that isn't white? It seems there are no bounds when something like this is published and accepted.
I'm sure we are going to see this splashed across the left leaning rags as a amazing breakthrough while the right leaning rags will have kittens about some of the comments in the article. Like this gem:
The point I’ve made through all of those experiences is that anti-Asian racism has the same source as anti-Black racism: white supremacy. So when a Black person attacks an Asian person, the encounter is fueled perhaps by racism, but very specifically by white supremacy. White supremacy does not require a white person to perpetuate it.
So here is the article ATS'ers---news.yahoo.com...
What say we? Also---if someone else posted this already....my bad I did not see it
