    Stock market is near all time high, so not sure how that plays into the economy category. Also, 3rd qtr will see 10-12% expansion. I bet this guy either changes his prediction by Election Day (if the polls continue to move in Trump’s direction) or he will say the pandemic confounded his methodology (which is true).

    And if only that would just take it and shut up and quit telling me I am the problem then I would say fine, you can have it, and good luck to you.

    The number one reason white men give for not getting involved in diversity and inclusion

    "Researchers from the nonprofit think tank asked white, straight, cisgender men with white-collar jobs in the US about their views on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the workplace."

    I'm a half-Cuban, white male who likes hot women.

    The reason I'm not that interested sometimes is because I don't want to be a Liberal. I'm not playing the game. To be pegged as cisgender is a label I reject completely. I'm not going into the box. So if you want me to support civil rights (WHICH I DO) then stop with the brain-washing Liberal HOGWASH. It's not good enough to preach kindness, civility and respect. Instead, you have to swallow the horse-pill of totalitarian "or else" and wear your sign so they can predict your movements and then counter them.

    Is this a joke? White men don’t help because it doesn’t mean squat when positions get axed. White men are the first to be laid off, so why should they help?

    Because the movement is designed to take everything away from them?

    I think people have been cutting BLM some slack, or trying to, by saying the rioting and looting is really antifa or just thugs taking advantage and it's not BLM. BLM is making sure they know that it IS them.

    BLM did a good job of naming themselves. If you are against them you are against black people according to their label. No one wants to be against black people. They are using the lack of racism in the US as a weapon to get what they want.

    Joe, I am not all that surprised. Big corporations will not shoot looters because none of the employees care enough about the business and would be fired if they did.

    Small businesses aren't protecting their business against looters because our culture has turned to docility and passivity. They will sit and let their business die before they will protect it by force. Our culture doesn't celebrate force or aggression anymore as a positive masculine trait anymore.

    The world is competitive. I use my energy to advance my career and my assets. I don't want to carry you also. that's what it comes down to.

    I'm not going to spend cycles every quarter planning, organizing, leading, discussing ways to lower the bar so that a minority can get special consideration for the next job opening.

    The debate these days is taking names off applications so that you can't infer someone's race. I bet they wouldn't want that same practice in place when it comes to deciding who gets into UT.

    A white person with a BLM sign is at best uninformed or is a freaking idiot. BLM actively promotes killing police officers and looting of property as reparations. I dare a liberal to prove me wrong.

    That would actually be the correct way to do it for schools and jobs. For jobs you want an in person meeting at some point, but the funnel to that should be blind to demographic categories.

    Trump doesn't outwardly condemn the white supremacists in Charlottesville and is deemed to support them. Any Dems who don't condemn this or any other riots are given a pass.

    He did outwardly condemn them and was still deemed to support them.

    Right, part of the false narrative was that he didn't.

    Universalist Unitarian churches are not Christian anyway. They are woke secular social clubs. I don't support burning any buildings, but I don't take burning down a UU building as an attack against the church. It's an example of Leftists eating themselves.

    This is about sports but it's also about the opportunity for blacks in America.

    Steve Nash's hiring leads to more questions as Black coaches sit on the sidelines

    Basically, Steve Nash was hired as coach of the New Jersey Nets. He has no prior basketball experience. Kevin Durant is a player of the New Jersey Nets. See this telling admission by the writer of the article:

    "Durant appears to want Nash, and Nash, revealing coaching has been a secret desire after years of denying interest, wanted in.

    When a player of Durant’s caliber seems to have the power to pick his coach, and he wants you, guess what happens? You become his coach."

    That should end the matter but of course it doesn't. But this writer and many others have loudly applauded the players seizing the power over their employers. But when Durant does it, there is no unconditional approval. What that means is this; it's not about real player power. It's about the political aspirations of black people and Durant is now possibly stepping off the Liberal cult by gushing about Nash (which he has done).

    I deem it political because it's not about true black freedom. It's about the Liberal agenda. There is no doubt about this in my mind.

    I wonder what the writer would have thought of Magic Johnson getting Paul Westhead fired.
