More than 1,700 congressmen once enslaved Black people. This is who they were, and how they shaped the nation.

Black Lives Matter stands with Jussie Smollett after verdict, but Don Lemon does not

Well, at least the members of BLM and Trump supporters have something in common.

Could have also put this in the What Makes You Laugh...HA!

Black Lives Matter is still standing with Jussie Smollett after the actor was convicted Thursday of staging a racist, homophobic attack and lying to police about it.

Black Lives Matter calls for month-long boycott of 'white companies' during the holiday season to support 'Black Xmas' and end 'White-supremacist-capitalism'

Not particularly impressed with Black Lives Matter. That said, I fully support the notion that oppressed visible minorities have an inherent right to hurt their own.   Maybe BLM would like to bring Robert Mugabe back from the grave to help make Black people in North America suffer? 

The BLM trash in Toronto recently got involved in a debate that saw the Green Party of Canada implode.   The spokesperson for BLM (Canada) expressed support for the anti-Semitic ethnic cleansing of the Holy Lands. 

Fellow anti-Arab terrorists in North America should rejoice at this source of political support for a greater and more glorious Israel with its lovely discourse of cultural superiority.

After that, it is hard not to think of BLM Canada as just more vocal racist trash.

“It’s an allegation as old as America — a sex-crazed Black man accused of attacking a white woman — and it came in Shelby County, the jurisdiction with the most recorded lynchings in the state’s history and a disproportionate number of death sentences.”

That is not my point.

You cannot have a meaningful conversation without first agreeing on definitions used in the conversation.

Conflate away and prevent a meaningful discussion from happening.

I give up.

I understand your point entirely. Which is to state that the US is not racist by definition, so any marginalised groups should either shut up or leave.

The issue here is to get everyone on board, including marginalised groups. All of the semantic bullshit going on between members of the dominant culture as to whether they or their systems are racist or discriminatory under their own definitions and which definitions apply is all well and good but is not going to do anything to get marginalised groups on board, if all you want them to do at the end of the day is suck it up and shut up anyway.

It gets worse when the institutions are designed to be fair and equal but are demonstrably exercised in ways that are not. Then your credibility is shot so you can talk till you are blue in the face.

Not very helpful.

Fail, again.

You two are quite lacking in your abilities to differentiate between culture and ethnicity. 

You are trying to conflate two completely different things in order to justify your claims.

cul·ture

noun
1.
the arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively.
"20th century popular culture"
Similar: the arts, the humanities, intellectual achievement(s), intellectual activity, literature, music, painting, philosophy
2.
the customs, arts, social institutions, and achievements of a particular nation, people, or other social group.

Racial and Ethnic Categories

In 1997, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued the Revisions to the Standards for the Classification of Federal Data on Race and Ethnicity. See, https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/omb/fedreg_1997standards. These standards are commonly used for federal data collection purposes, not only in the decennial census, but also in household surveys, on administrative forms (e.g., school registration and mortgage lending applications), and in medical and clinical research. The revised standards contain five minimum categories for race: American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, and White. There are two categories for ethnicity: "Hispanic or Latino" and "Not Hispanic or Latino."

Definitions for Racial and Ethnic Categories

The Revisions to OMB Directive 15 defines each racial and ethnic category as follows:

American Indian or Alaska Native. A person having origins in any of the original peoples of North and South America (including Central America), and who maintains tribal affiliation or community attachment.

Asian. A person having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, or the Indian subcontinent including, for example, Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippine Islands, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Black or African American. A person having origins in any of the black racial groups of Africa. Terms such as "Haitian" or "Negro" can be used in addition to "Black or African American."

Hispanic or Latino. A person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race. The term, "Spanish origin," can be used in addition to "Hispanic or Latino."

Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander. A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Hawaii, Guam, Samoa, or other Pacific Islands.

White. A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa.

The categories and definitions provide a common language to promote uniformity and comparability of data on race and ethnicity. Moreover, federal agencies have a continuing commitment to monitor the operation of its review and award processes to detect, and deal appropriately with, any instances of real or apparent inequities. All analyses conducted on race and ethnicity report aggregate statistical findings and do not identify individuals.
