  • Sociologist Tony Brown has it all figured out. He’s going to let you know how to tell if you’re a racist.

    Blaming “white privilege” for the Baltimore riots, Brown lays the responsibility precisely where it isn’t: You white people.

    So how did you – rotten white person – cause the Baltimore riots? Here’s Dr. Brown’s list of “signs you’re a racist,” courtesy his op-ed in the Tennessean:

    Your child’s behavior is racist and it’s your fault (mostly).

  • You never intentionally read children’s books with main characters of color, but you raised Sarah to appreciate diversity.
  • You lived in a residentially segregated neighborhood, and thought that fact sent no implicit messages to Evan.
  • You chose to worship in a church or synagogue where Katey was surrounded by white people, and she understood that way of life to be normal.
  • You choose the best schools for Chase, but never considered the fact that those schools were racially homogenous.
  • You talked to Isabelle about poverty but implied that all poor people are black and it’s their own fault.
  • You let grandma say n***** at Thanksgiving in front of Elizabeth because grandma is old and doesn’t know any better.
  • You told a racially insensitive joke in front of Liam, condoning symbolic violence.

Isn’t it cute how Dr. Brown threw in first names that are stereotypically white? But hey, that’s OK. Nothing like a little good-natured “microaggression” here.

Dr. Brown then has a call to action: He wants “black and brown” people – and what he calls “doubting whites” to video record everything.

 “Record the discourteous way co-workers or service industry workers or police officers treat you. Record your friends talking about the indignities and micro-aggressions you as a person of color, for example, face in all- or mostly-white spaces,” he writes. “If you happen to identify as white, then record Uncle Roy talking at a private family gathering about the good old days when blacks knew their place (what sociologists call backstage racism). Record how pleasant your interactions are with police officers doing routine traffic stops. Record whether and how the conversation changes when people of color enter the room.”

You first, Dr. Brown. If you want “black and brown” people being treated unfairly by white people, turn that camera around and record the culture of victimization that has been perpetuated in the black community by a ubiquitous welfare state.

The Odd Connection between Obamacare and Foodstamps

BY MICHAEL MINKOFF

Ever since Obamacare has been implemented, food stamp usage has increased, seemingly disconnected from the “improving” economy:

In most affected states, the enrollment increases were not huge, ranging from 1 percent to 6 percent over two years, according to an Associated Press analysis. The sole exception was Nevada, where enrollment shot up 14 percent.

The enrollment is climbing as Republicans try to cut the costs of the food program and at a time when food-stamp usage would normally be expected to decline. Eligibility rules have not changed.

West Virginia’s food-stamp enrollment increased 4 percent after a Medicaid expansion that was part of the health care changes. Enrollment jumped because people were “more engaged with our systems and more aware what they’re eligible for,” said Jeremiah Samples of the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources.

So Obamacare forces people to engage with the welfare system in at least one way, and some of those people are dipping into other welfare services while they’re there. Because why not?

Everyone knew Obamacare was going to be more expensive than anyone had predicted. But not even the most diehard opponent of Obamacare foresaw this. People would have said we were grasping at straws if we had predicted an up-tick in welfare enrollment correlated to Obamacare. Yet that is just what is happening.

So what’s the solution? The solution is obvious. Get the civil government out of the welfare business. They are really terrible at it. By that, I mean that they are really terrible at actually helping people. They are very adept at finding new ways to give “support” to people who would probably be better off without it in the long-term.

There probably isn’t a chance of abolishing Obamacare at this point. Everyone points to how well it’s working. No one seems to care that we can’t afford it. Well at least we’ll be able to eat some freshly minted food stamps when the economy collapses.

19 SIGNS THAT AMERICAN FAMILIES ARE BEING ECONOMICALLY DESTROYED

The systematic destruction of the American way of life is happening all around us, and yet most people have no idea what is happening

by MICHAEL SNYDER | ECONOMIC COLLAPSE | APRIL 9, 2015

The systematic destruction of the American way of life is happening all around us, and yet most people have no idea what is happening.

Once upon a time in America, if you were responsible and hard working you could get a good paying job that could support a middle class lifestyle for an entire family even if you only had a high school education.

Things weren’t perfect, but generally almost everyone in the entire country was able to take care of themselves without government assistance.  We worked hard, we played hard, and our seemingly boundless prosperity was the envy of the entire planet.

But over the past several decades things have completely changed.  We consumed far more wealth than we produced, we shipped millions of good paying jobs overseas, we piled up the biggest mountain of debt in the history of the world, and we kept electing politicians that had absolutely no concern for the long-term future of this nation whatsoever.

So now good jobs are in very short supply, we are drowning in an ocean of red ink, the middle class is rapidly shrinking and dependence on the government is at an all-time high.

Even as we stand at the precipice of the next great economic crisis, we continue to make the same mistakes.  In the end, all of us are going to pay a very great price for decades of incredibly foolish decisions.  Of course a tremendous amount of damage has already been done.

The numbers that I am about to share with you are staggering.  The following are 19 signs that American families are being economically destroyed…

#1 The poorest 40 percent of all Americans now spend more than 50 percent of their incomes just on food and housing.

#2 For those Americans that don’t own a home, 50 percent of them spend more than a third of their incomes just on rent.

#3 The price of school lunches has risen to the 3 dollar mark at many public schools across the nation.

#4 McDonald’s “Dollar Menu & More” now includes items that cost as much as 5 dollars.

#5 The price of ground beef has doubled since 2009.

#6 In 1986, child care expenses for families with employed mothers used up 6.3 percentof all income.  Today, that figure is up to 7.2 percent.

#7 Incomes fell for the bottom 80 percent of all income earners in the United States during the 12 months leading up to June 2014.

#8 At this point, more than 50 percent of all American workers bring home less than $30,000 a year in wages.

#9 After adjusting for inflation, median household income has fallen by nearly $5,000since 2007.

#10 According to the New York Times, the “typical American household” is now worth 36 percent less than it was worth a decade ago.

#11 47 percent of all Americans do not put a single penny out of their paychecks into savings.

#12 One survey found that 62 percent of all Americans are currently living paycheck to paycheck.

#13 According to the U.S. Department of Education, 33 percent of all Americans with student loans are currently behind on their student loan debt repayments.

#14 According to one recent report, 43 million Americans currently have unpaid medical debt on their credit reports.

#15 The rate of homeownership in the U.S. has been declining for seven years in a row, and it is now the lowest that it has been in 20 years.

#16 For each of the past six years, more businesses have closed in the United States than have opened.  Prior to 2008, this had never happened before in all of U.S. history.

#17 According to the Census Bureau, 65 percent of all children in the United States are living in a home that receives some form of aid from the federal government.

#18 If you have no debt at all, and you also have 10 dollars in your wallet, that you are wealthier than 25 percent of all Americans.

#19 On top of everything else, the average American must work from January 1st to April 24th just to pay all federal, state and local taxes.

All of us know people that once were doing quite well but that are now just struggling to get by from month to month.

Perhaps this has happened to you.

If you have ever been in that position, you probably remember what it feels like to have people look down on you.  Unfortunately, in our society the value that we place on individuals has a tremendous amount to do with how much money they have.

So if you don’t have much money, there are a lot of people out there that will treat you like dirt.  The following excerpt comes from a Washington Post article entitled “The poor are treated like criminals everywhere, even at the grocery store“…

Want to see a look of pure hatred? Pull out an EBT card at the grocery store.

Now that my kids are grown and gone, my Social Security check is enough to keep me from qualifying for government food benefits. But I remember well when we did qualify for a monthly EBT deposit, a whopping $22 — and that was before Congress cut SNAP benefits in November 2013. Like 70 percent of people receiving SNAP benefits, I couldn’t feed my family on that amount. But I remember the comments from middle-class people, the assumptions about me and my disability and what the poor should and shouldn’t be spending money on.

Have you ever seen this?

Have you ever experienced this yourself?

These days, most people on food stamps are not in that situation because they want to be.  Rather, they are victims of our long-term economic collapse.

And this is just the beginning.  When the next major economic crisis strikes, the suffering in this country is going to go to unprecedented levels.

As we enter that time, we are going to need a whole lot more love and compassion than we are exhibiting right now.

As a nation, we have made decades of incredibly bad decisions.  As a result, we are experiencing bad consequences which are going to become increasingly more severe.

The numbers that I just shared with you are not good.  But over the next several years they are going to get a whole lot worse.

Everything that can be shaken will be shaken, and life in America is about to change in a major way.
