The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing
the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to
"Please Do Not Feed the Animals."
Their stated reason for the policy is because the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will
not learn to take care of themselves.


That's really racist. You had to make a stretch that far just to make a racist comment. Congratulations

That's not racist, it's rather astute really.

The comparison is about Incentives. If you give out free food to anyone below $X per month of whatever then you incentivise them to stay below that value. People have more sophisticated minds than animals so various other desires will come into play, but the program does incentivise behaviour to stay below that limit, whether that be indolent unemployment or taking and losing jobs in order to stay low enough paid to qualify (maybe do a stint in jail as well to keep yourself low enough). The UK has a similar issue with it's benefits payment system where the amount of various benefits certain categories of claimant can amass is greater than a full time wage in the area they live. Effectively incentivising people to stay unemployed.

The comment also serves a second example - The US Department of Agriculture should be horrified to be distributing more free meals and food stamps than ever. Doing so shows an ongoing decline on the American economy. However the DoA is probably funded based on how much food it distributed and the more you have to distribute the bigger your budget, the more people you can hire, the larger office space you need and the greater your Empire within the organisation. That's a perverse incentive. The DoA should be trying to have that department put itself out of business (so to speak).

It's important to think about the longer term behaviours you're incentivising when you attempt these sorts of social safety nets.

So suggestions for charitable acts and report white supremacists to their employers, this is a problem why?

So basically, give us your houses, money and also ignore your aspirations in life, because we need attention and care more than you do. Huh, well I doubt the entire "organisation" stands for this, but in every political movement, there will always be complete cunts who ignore (or in this case) take them to the extreme (in a way).

A black lives matter leader made a request of us privileged whities! The list is so absurd you would think its from the onion. If your white then you should be ashamed of yourself while reading this \s



This was said in response to Charleston



Some things I’m thinking about that should change (in that Southern, black grandmama voice):

1. White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty.

2. White people, if you’re inheriting property you intend to sell upon acceptance, give it to a black or brown family. You’re bound to make that money in some other white privileged way.

3. If you are a developer or realty owner of multi-family housing, build a sustainable complex in a black or brown blighted neighborhood and let black and brown people live in it for free.

4. White people, if you can afford to downsize, give up the home you own to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.

5. White people, if any of the people you intend to leave your property to are racists assholes, change the will, and will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.

6. White people, re-budget your monthly so you can donate to black funds for land purchasing.

7. White people, especially white women (because this is yaw specialty — Nosey Jenny and Meddling Kathy), get a racist fired. Yaw know what the fuck they be saying. You are complicit when you ignore them. Get your boss fired cause they racist too.

8. Backing up No. 7, this should be easy but all those sheetless Klan, Nazi’s and Other lil’ dick-white men will all be returning to work. Get they ass fired. Call the police even: they look suspicious.

9. OK, backing up No. 8, if any white person at your work, or as you enter in spaces and you overhear a white person praising the actions from yesterday, first, get a pic. Get their name and more info. Hell, find out where they work — Get Them Fired. But certainly address them, and, if you need to, you got hands: use them.

10. Commit to two things: Fighting white supremacy where and how you can (this doesn’t mean taking up knitting, unless you’re making scarves for black and brown kids in need), and funding black and brown people and their work.

If they're so butthurt over not having "privilege" then they can hop on the first flight out to Africa, where they have their own racial privilege.

In the absence of family, relatives, and friends of my choosing, blacks have priority over whites in age, in order of cycles.

black lives matters has started more riots in the last 4 years than we have seen in the last 15. it doesnt matter if the given reason for the movement is a good one if their idea of protest involves Molotov Cocktails, and looting

These demands are just downright silly. If you think that black people and other minorities are trapped in a cycle of crime and poverty and other societal ills, then stop blaming the white man for all of it, and get up and solve it yourselves.

For example, I went to high school in a town that had a sizable Latino population. Our community was pretty middle-class or lower, for the most part, and we had a pretty bad problem with drugs and crime. But you didn't see the Latinos raising all hell about it or demanding that white people help them out, nor did you see that with the few blacks and Asians living there. They raised themselves up and became upstanding members of society. I have a lot of friends who are Latino, and I'm more than happy to be friends with them because they are fine, upstanding citizens.

If these people could do it, what's stopping the people at Black Lives Matter? Why don't they pull themselves up by their bootstraps and clean up the crime and drugs in their own communities? Because these activists love to play the victim card. And it's not like I wholly disagree with the idea behind BLM (hypothetically, at least); I believe that the power of the police should be limited to a point, but I also think that African-American communities have a lot of problems that the African-Americans in those communities need to resolve. But since the victim card is the easier way to go, these activists would prefer to cry over their supposed eternal victimization at the hands of the white man rather than take matters into their own hands and work for a better future for their children.

But that's just my two cents. I don't mean to offend anybody with this, and I hope we can continue to have a civil discussion as regards this topic.
