  1. Republicans or Trump voters? I'm tempted to think there's a difference between the two. The Republican wears face masks. The Trump voter believes in conspiracy theories.
  2. My intuition expected the list to be comprehensive. So it's not. OK, sure. Nice way of presenting these data I guess.. Ignore all the stuff below the average. The "whites" and all that.
  3. Native American!? Euh, call me a silly European, but the Natives are not the caucasians, right? Looks silly to distinguish Latino and African and consider the non-spanish europeans as natives. I'm confused. I'm thinking of those Indians and the likes as the original natives. But if so, they decided to ignore the caucasians as a group? Anyways...So, if your grandparent came from Ireland, you're considered a native. But if your grandparent came from Africa, you're not considered a native. Sure. No institutional racism whatsoever. Just some European idiot not understanding what the hell is t
  4. Tbh, the number of confirmed cases at itself is quite meaningless. It depends on the number of tests done. And the percentage of positives from those tests. And then there's the obvious: look at the per capita to assess whether the highest count also means the highest per capita. There's not much to conclude from this graph, if you ask me.
  5. just a point of critique. institutional racism goes beyond what the law says. there's also the stuff which could be summarised under "policies and procedures". or standard practise, of you will. even with perfect laws, institutions could show signs of institutional racism just by how they operate. hypothetical example: if the law says stealing is illegal, but the police only (systematically?) goes after people of a certain race, there could be a bit of institutional racism involved. nothing wrong with the law. and potentially something wrong with policies and procedures. other than t
  6. Love some Skee Mask, and I hate to be a negative Nancy: but the EPs sound like a bunch of half-finished ideas to me. Not much interesting going on in there. Not my T. Sorry. Would have loved to love it. But can't. So I'll pass.
  7. *prays Darwin will take care of these fruitcakes*
  8. Getting in the mood for some post-Trump memes ;D
  9. Enjoying the social media trolling of trumpster by lincoln &co.
  10. I feel terrorised watching that. But sure, she's not a terrorist.
  11. Some interesting info in this youtube on cop training. With some explanation about procedures and what goes on in peoples (including cops) minds. At points he is critical wrt current habits. Also note how he warns cops about bringing this stuff up in their unit. It's basically a guarantee to get another job.
  12. for numbers and stats, go here: https://ourworldindata.org/coronavirus-data other than that, it's just silly to reduce this issue to a single indicator such as you're doing. not only are you ignoring the fact that the virus started spreading at different moments in time in different regions. you're also ignoring the underlying context of why numbers are higher in one location over another. much of the underlying causal relations are still unknown at this point, so this whole measuring dick-size nonsense is just that: nonsense. if you want to compare policies, you might want to compar
  13. nothing better to do with your time? it's still apples and oranges to make comparisons such as that. no matter the math. please go make some more tunes, or something.
  14. Yeah, Trump is not responsible! XD Most irresponsible president ever!!
  15. "I'm white and I'm privileged"
  16. As always, fighting against the establishment. Sound Trump strategy. Hope he'll reuse his old tweets as well. Establishment president has more interest in playing golf, and all that. ;D
  17. Trump will attack anything. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jun/11/trump-icc-us-war-crimes-investigation-sanctions Couple more headturners in that article btw.
  18. Yes, that's a good read. The shortest summaries of summaries: Good luck with those cultists. And keeping your sanity... 😞
  19. Haven't listened, but I'm already a fan! ;D
