Outrage isn't enough. Robin DiAngelo, the author of ‘White Fragility,’ explains why the birding community must examine itself.

I reject the idea that birders (most of whom are on the left, btw) are racist. To me it's ridiculous for the Audubon Society and the American Birding Association to focus so much attention on fighting nonexistent racism among their ranks. Rather than bring people together, articles like this are intended to be divisive. It's framed as an attack on all white people, accusing the entire group of having some vague unprovable bad characteristic called "fragility." The intent is to shame and silence people. If you argue that this fragility is bullshit they would counter that your response is itself based in white fragility. A windmill you can't even tilt at. How convenient.

Government officials denied they had suppressed information about the outbreak and said China had set a strong example for how to combat it.

Article needs to be re-titled: "New York Times Defends China and it's Coronavirus Response."

These rioters won't come for the suburbs here in Texas. We got guns and prepare to use by putting in range time. They wouldn't stand a chance.

Private investment firm Franklin Templeton tweets: "We do not tolerate racism of any kind."

Tale of two assholes, and she won the prize for being the bigger asshole of the two. But the guy who confronted her is also an asshole. In his facebook post he admits to threatening her and trying to lure her dog away from her. he instigated and escalated the situation on purpose, then started recording video and got what he wanted - the white racist of his dreams. Christian Cooper, the black birder, is loving this. The birding community, which is mostly comprised of leftist assholes, is lauding the guy. But he's just an asshole who fanned the flames and she's just the bigger asshole who got stupid on video.

Viral video of the woman urgently telling police she was being threatened by an "African-American man" has illustrated how racism can be weaponized.

The birder, Christian Cooper, was initially in the right. However when he (by his own admission) made a vague threat and then tried to lure her dog to him he escalated the situation. He made her fear he intended to take or harm her dog. Cooper was being an asshole too, but the media is only going to focus on the woman dropping the race card, and not his threat and action which was intended to scare her.

More media shilling for Joe Biden. Funny how charitable the writer of this article is to Joe Biden, and how willing to overlook a Biden's mistake, even mind reading Biden to provide the word the writer believes Biden meant to use. All this writer is showing is a lack of sense of humor when the target of that humor runs counter to their political biases. Usual misleading headline, btw.

Commune Magazine, a flashy and professional looking "antifa" publication that sought to provide intellectual direction to the anarchist movement, announced yesterday that it would discontinue its operations and refund all its subscribers. The catalyst for this decision were allegations that an unnamed editor had raped another left-wing activist. A source familiar with the

Is this a real story or satire? "Raven then confronted him, demanded an apology and asked him to read four feminist essays. After Khanna agreed to read the articles, he raped her again, the accuser says."

British Muslims – many who have lived here for generations – are packing up their belongings, parting ways with their loved ones, established careers and the country they were born in to move to somewhere safer. In recent years, the rates of hate crimes against religious minorities in the UK has rocketed, and for some, it has just become too dangerous to stay. There is an

A man sustained an injury to his face during an incident at the holiday park where the far-right extremist was staying.

This is what passes for "journalism"? No mention of the reason this occurred - the "victim" had sexually molested his 8 year old daughter. Goddamn I don't know who is the worse scum, the pedophile or the police and journalists who protect them while smearing a father protecting his daughter.
