    There is no evidence these tests measure anything reliable despite what is claimed in the article:

    Researchers believe IAT tests reveal attitudes that people would be unwilling to state publicly, or might not even be aware of on a conscious level.

    Or maybe the white folks are afraid to lose their jobs if they answer incorrectly.

    Speaking of DeSantis
    The NAACP has declared Florida to be dangerous for poc to travel to.
    Funny the Chairman of NAACP lives in Tampa. DeSantis offered to with moving expenses to move out of dangerous Florida:clap:

    And then there is this wacko
    A Democratic activist visited Florida for spring break despite praising the NAACP's travel advisory against the state.

    "I really appreciate the NAACP's guidance on this issue," activist Aisha C. Mills said during an interview with MSNBC Monday. " I just took my family to spring break in Florida, and I think about all the folks who travel there for sun and joy and peace and restoration and to be reminded that actually this is getting to the point where Florida is about to be a terrorist state to many of us here in America, certainly as a lesbian, as a Black woman, I don’t want to have anything to do with the place" UNTIL NEXT MAY VACAY

    The NAACP doesn't like a Republican. Wow. What a surprise.

    Did the naacp add Chicago to the list? Lot of black folks get shot and killed there.

    My gut says this isn’t true. Why not add Baltimore?

    I'm with you. First, the cities with the highest number of murders don't match up.
    Plus, in 2021 there were just over 26,000 homicides in the USA, with a per capita rate of 7.8 per 100K. (Yes, I am aware the city stats are for 2022, and national stat is for 2021, but I suspect the math would be very similar if I hunted for same year data.) The number of homicides in the top 5 cities accounts for just about 10% of the national tally.

    I have very serious doubts that a 10% reduction in the murder rate would vault us from 3rd to 189th in the world.

    All the one chart proves is that the drive by shooters in Houston are really bad shots.

    Saw on GatewayPundit that McCarthy caved on the IRS army increase. That would be enough for me to vote nay.

    Understand, but the IRS issue is a budget fight; not a debt fight. Getting work requirements is a debt fight.

    They cut all of the $1.9b for the coming year. So, you’re right in that it’s only a temporary stop . But , hey, if republicans stay in control of the house they will still have control of the purse strings after that.

    Republicans will do very little if they win the Senate. We saw this before when Obama was President.

    Why do they say "rate"? How about "count" because of those lunatic cities.

    I don't know about that. For all of my dissing of DJT i think changing the willingness of GOP reps to stand up to MSM is his greatest accomplishment. Before DJT, most were scared of MSM and would scurry back to the safety of approved MSM language. After DJT many more (not all) are willing to stick to the conservative principals even if they get crap from MSM.
