    Not sure about others but Cat not working for me. My two posts yesterday both disappeared and can’t see all posts in open forum.

    Ok that worked but Open thread just not working for me. If I click on a post at right top side it does not even take me to that post but some random single post in the thread which is not the latest one.

    Looking at the white audience I cannot tell how much is self-loathing, and how much is the sneakier dodge of denouncing your own group, standing outside of it, and thus separating yourself from its guilt, and basking instead in the cosmetic virtue of turning on allies for a cause.

    It is not selflessness but the most extreme selfishness, done conspicuously and in constant expectation of applause.

    As for the woman running the talk – can you imagine her on the deck of the Titanic? She would be tossing people out of the way, brow clenched like a fist, shouting loudly and without pause about how there had better be a boat left for her and how they better get some of those wrinkly white crackers out because she needs room.

    be careful Mark A or you’s be tagged a fatist ( by the fattest too)

  10. John Brumble says:

    Mother Lode – I’ve come to the conclusion that the people in the audience are just racists. They know racism is wrong, so they work against showing their own. But because racism involves thinking of yourself (and people like you) as better than others, it means they just assume everyone else must be the same. If everyone else denies that, then everyone else must be either lying or delusional.

    After all, imagine how racist you’d need to be to not own up to your own racism! That everyone has. Because they do and they’re better than everyone else. /s

  11. Dinky says:

    She would be tossing people out of the way

    That’s an outrageous lie!

    She’d be tossing them out of the way to get to the buffet.

    Oh and here I was saying I wouldn’t crack any lines.

    I saw this last night on Sky.

    No doubt her comfort eating “issues” are all down to being oppressed by the thrusting phallus of the racist white patriarky (or most likely in her case, not being oppressed due to her monstrous ugleeness).

    As for the vile imbeciles in the audience, never forget, the crocodile may come for you last, but it will still end up eating you – unless it’s chowed down recently on fatso above, which may gift you a brief reprieve.

    More than likely most of the audience were required to attend by the barren old duck running the ‘Wellness’ section of HR. It goes on their employment badge on the website. Just like the Soviet Union, everyone will be publicly complicit. This type of training is happening in government and semi-government departments and Universities around Australia. It’s an extension of the ‘welcome to country’ bs.

  30. Turtle says:

    I’m reminded of Thomas Sowell’s explanation of “black” language. The US blacks use a lot of slang they claim for themselves but it actually comes from southern white language, like “Y’all”.

    We have our own version. Members of the aboriginal industry use the term “deadly” to mean something good. I’ve never heard an ordinary aborigine use that word.

    University students are taught that “wadjula” just means “white person”. Growing up in the bush I never heard that word used politely.

    The real racists are the so called anti-racists.

  35. Spurgeon Monkfish III says:

    Not sure how many of you may have been to the states recently, but a significant proportion of black American women are as morbidly obese as the one in the video.

    Whether it’s poor impulse control, monumental self loathing and being treated like dirt all their lives by related or random black men, it is an absolute tragedy that so many of them are like this.

    Yet again, poisonous collectivist idiocy (as preached and practiced by whites) is the main reason why these poor women ending up living such empty, pointless and self destructive existences.

    You cannot end up that obese and end up not hating yourself. Those that hate themselves, will invariably lash out and hate others who they perceive are to blame for their misfortune. Remember, the bedrock of collectivism is envy.

  39. Kneel says:

    “The real racists are the so called anti-racists.”

    That much is abundantly clear – imagine, if you will, holding up a sign saying “All black people are <insert anything here>”. Would you be branded a racist? (rhetorical question) Yet the board in the photo says all WHITE people are racists, and that’s OK? No, it bloody well is not! And neither is telling me that I need to do special training because of my skin colour. Disgusting.
    To paraphrase Martin Luther King: I look forward to the day when I am judged by the content of my character, not the colour of my skin. Should such bunk ever appear here and I am “obliged” to do it, I will be quoting MLK as above and refusing to do it. Try to force the point, and you’ll have a law case on your hands.

    One point to remember: when you see leftists saying they are “anti” something, it means “opposite” not “against” – so “anti-fascist” means “reverse fascist”, and “anti-racist” means “reverse racist”. So an anti-racist is in reality a “black supremacist”.

    In San Antonio, I saw two gals waiting at the bus stop. I was sure they would never fit through the doorway of the bus so I waited to see if I was right. About 15 minutes later ( it was that fascinating) the bus arrived and they each squeezed in sideways. At that conference some people had to know how far to walk before they would go anywhere. Across the road was as far as they could make it. The buffet lunch has multiple black forest cakes and cheese cakes the size of pizzas topped with chocolate.
    In the end, the Chinese will invade and just push the yanks over. They’d never get up.

  45. duncanm says:

    To e, its always seemed like much of urban America has a strange bimodal distribution of weight and health.

    Especially on the west coast around LA/SF, there’s the fitness nuts, and then the morbidly obese. What we use to consider ‘normal’ doesn’t seem to include the 90% of the population that it should.

  46. Mick Gold Coast QLD says:

    I see “Intersectionality” and wonder what this new systemic organic algorithmic unknown metric means? Is it yet another category in the cavalcade of sex fetishes beloved of the obsessives demanding that society offer up their children to their care?

    One is reminded for some reason of Shallow Hal’s observation twenty years ago, when he and his mate Mauricio were confronted with making a move on three wymminses of less fortunate attractiveness …

    Shallow Hal: I’m going for the one in the middle. You can have your pick of the other two.

    Mauricio: So you get the hyena, and I have to choose between the hippopotamus and the giraffe?

    Take a lot of guts to dress like that…..just sayin’

    A couple of months ago I was away from home and hungry. The only place nearby was a KFC. Inside was a very large tv screen that was pumping out Black American music videos. The female singers/dancers were smaller [edit: slightly]/younger versions of the photo.

    The clothing and dance moves were hyper-sexualised to the degree that not much more needed to be attempted by the dancers(?) for a full picture of their anatomy to be shown.

    Someone in the KFC had chosen the channel. The young kids working in the place, while busy, we’re seemingly oblivious [edit: de-sensitised] to this crap.

    A recent theme of KFC ads is the presentation of an embarrassing “moment” of the key protagonist with the by-line ‘did someone just say, KFC!’. Of the ads, the most recent has a mother [edit: chest-feeding, non-man] being caught dancing?/moving around provocatively on the floor by her daughter [edit: non-male close relative] and her daughter’s friends, to which she calls out the by-line, with the final scene having the mother, who is behaving like one of the group of 16 year old girls, whooping it up with them at the KFC.

    While some of the earlier ads are quite witty and cute, this one depicts the ongoing sexualisation of society to the extent that the mother is behaving like she’s ready for more than the strip joint.

    If music clips as well as KFC ads can depict females in this way then it’s not mentally any harder for black women [edit: and white woman] to dress and perhaps act like trollops.

    Re the clothes of the woman in the photo: clothing is designed to send a message – in this case it suggests “don’t mess with me!”, which is a standard power-posing attitude.

    Well yes, you’d think that but remember, for every self-indulgent land whale feeding on the projected bigotry of “progressives”, there is a whole squad of well-armed patriots that could occupy the same physical space – and they ain’t about to be takin’ this kind of crap from future Darwin-award recipients.

    That, and if you ask a black man who doesn’t buy this shit, he’ll tell you it’s fear. Deep fear of black people.
    Fear of possible violence and fear of possible complaint leading to deep troubles.

    Basically, blacks have the whites by the balls and they ain’t letting go.

    Whether it’s poor impulse control, monumental self loathing and being treated like dirt all their lives by related or random black men, it is an absolute tragedy that so many of them are like this.

    Successful black men almost always have white women on their arms. The other way is quite rare. (That’s why Moochelle was so loved and admired by black women. She got to keep her successful and handsome man. Rare feat deserves accolades).

    Having been used while a teenager and then dumped with a kid or three, Id imagine the loathing and hatred runs deep.

    By the way, I’m certain I saw that photo doing the SocMed rounds way back in 2016 or early 2017.

    Lies are being told about slavery as well as whites were more likely to be slaves than others . I remember the Roman could have been an early pope asking about the blonde slaves and told they were Engels no Angels was the reply . Then the pirates on the Barbary coast kidnapping white women for slaves THe pirates were the reason for the start of American Navy

    The excessive obesity of the US population would contribute to the high COVID-19 death toll, quite apart from Cuomo’s nursing home toll, and the incentives provided by special Federal payments for COVID-19 deaths making it lucrative to mislabel death from other causes.

    Spurge, you’ve nailed it. Such obesity brings self-hatred and leaves people open to tremendous excuse-making victimology, phrased as ‘racism’. There is a deliberate aggression in choosing that gear to wear, as someone further up noted too. She is by her form and the Lycra saying yah boo sucks, you can’t come and get me because I’m in control of you here.

    Allowing these highly emotional and disturbed individuals free rein to act in this way merely reinforces that aggression rather than ameliorating it, because at the same time the body hatred can kick in more strongly in them by the obvious unresponsiveness of the audience to the aggressive challenge being set.

    Or something …. I might be wrong about the whole thing, but my being taken for a ride hackles are up.

    Interesting how all those ancient cultures separated by millennia, continents and oceans would make those “Venus” figures that get dug up at archaeological sites. The ones of similar representative, perhaps larger proportions than of the esteemed lecturer in this post. Interesting also how there were long periods over the centuries where very chunky ladies seemed to be the favourite of painters. I.e. the art at the Vatican.

    I wonder though was there some kind of public speaking correlation with the above ancient sculpture and more recent paintings with the phenomenon we maybe seeing here. Were people afraid what would happen to them if they didn’t listen to what was being said?

    Recalling how she went ballistic at that umpire a couple of years back for his racism in docking her a point against the Black Japanese Naomi Osaka at the US Open, it’s kinda expected to see her at it again isn’t it?

    What’s the prob exactly?

    You are always going to be racist actually. So even when you are on your path to try to figure out how to be a better human being. Aah… because… I believe white people are born into not being human.

    If only she would sing!

    “I see “Intersectionality” and wonder what this new systemic organic algorithmic unknown metric means?”

    Mick, Mick, Mick – get woke!

    Clearly, a black, lesbian, transgender woman is much, much more oppressed by the white patriarchy than YOU. And since we need “equity”, we need to take into account – and counter – each and every oppression said person suffers. This is what intersectionality is all about – seeing who can claim the most discrimination by belonging to the most “minorities” at the same time.

    Most amusing in all this guff is that Asians are now “white” – they obtain “white privilege” by virtue of their parents valuing education, especially mathematics. Asians need to out score blacks by at least 20% in university entrance exams in order to “beat” them to a place in that university – that’s assuming that they even have entrance exams any more, such things are “racist” don’t you know.

    I have no idea where black asians fit this scheme – especially if they are homosexual and/or transgender. That’s why we need intersectionality – to help us solve these conundrums and ensure we asymptotically approach equity for all, and thus societal perfection.

    You know it makes sense.

    And you better tell everyone too – if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. And if you’re part of the problem your going to be de-platformed from everywhere – including SalesForce. So obey – or else you and your business will be disappeared. No pressure though…

    Interesting also how there were long periods over the centuries where very chunky ladies seemed to be the favourite of painters. I.e. the art at the Vatican.

    I would guess being skinny was the norm for 95% of people throughout mankinds history. Food was scarce, work was labour. The only ones with some fat on the body would have been the ruling classes.

    In order to eat and have a roof over their heads, painters needed the ruling classes to commission their work. Many of the women painted (real or imagined women) would have been from the ruling classes and would naturally be a little overweight.

    I am finishing off a higher-ed certificate in university teaching as a contract lecturer (here in land of Oz). The first reading of my last subject in this degree was about this dude’s approach to teaching, which miraculously changed because he became aware of the power structures in relationships, and this (i.e. critical theory) now informs his teaching. We are all in this together. No one is superior, blah, blah. He even cited Gramsci! Sigh.

    Beats me how some take critical theory seriously. How can I take critical theory seriously, when there are no more universals or concepts to learn, other than power, which these white knights want to re-distribute (and with idiots at the helm)? I reckon this is what Mises had in mind when he referred to polylogism. It is just a set of propositions, based on what they perceive as a power imbalance in relationships, based on their own set of presuppositions. Presumably critical race theory is just a variant. Very partisan, exclusive and guilt manipulating. Their solution is re-education, revolution and equalitarianism. It ain’t going to happen. And in the words of a recent post on the Cat, follow the MONEY – these are the tyrants who want to guilt you into poverty into more power for them and out of your money. Those without a sense of moral direction buckle under the weight of these numb nuts. Bunch of intellectual dunces!

    Not sure about now but when I travelled through India in the mid-80’s the advertising posters of celebs like Kapil Dev or Sunil Gavaskar always showed them slightly lighter of skin (caste issue) and slightly plumper (wealth issue, as you say) than they were in real life. The idealisation in art does indicate aspirations.

    Dot at 10:59; close to 20 years ago I was pulling together the relevant people to discuss a agronomy strategy, including a fellow from another department. The idea was a simple meeting to discuss the issues and decide a course of action. He showed up with a facilitator, and all the bullshit accoutrements, fat markers, butcher paper, blu tak. That crystallised for me a lot of things about a lot of things!
