Slavery is a choice..according to Kanye

Black people could have easily just thrown down their shackles and walked out... what were they thinking?!
I think that Kanye West is a deluded egomaniac, but in his defence, I think that he was attempting to mount a very poorly-expressed argument that African-Americans are still obsessed by the history of their slavery and, as a result, still see themselves as victims. That victim mentality then holds them back and stops them from being successful.

That's my understanding of what he said, anyway. I think that he tried to explain himself further via Twitter after the interview.

Black owned coffee shops open their doors wider

"The arrests spurred protests against Starbucks and the Philadelphia police, as well as calls for the city's coffee drinkers to support small, black-owned coffee shops instead. Franny Lou's customers shared stories on social media about how Kind offered a 'safe space'; one patron left a handwritten note: 'I'd rather give my coins to Blew & crew than racist Starbucks.'"

Black people only congregating at black owned cafes. Isn't that reverse segregation?

The victim mentality is slavery.

This is the toxic end game of identity politics, segregration with groups and fanctions all competing for a share of the welfare and dole money. I'm more prejudiced against than thou!

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/briti...order-from-b-c-detained-for-2-weeks-1.4717060

"A visitor from France says she was jogging along the beach south of White Rock, B.C., when she crossed the U.S. border without realizing it. So began a two-week nightmare that landed her in a prison jumpsuit.

Cedella Roman, 19, didn't know it at the time, but as she ran southeast along the beach on the evening of May 21, she crossed a municipal boundary — and, shortly after, an international border.

As the tide started to come in, she veered up and onto a dirt path before stopping to take a photo of the picturesque setting.

She turned around to head back — and that's when she was apprehended by two U.S. Border Patrol officers."

"The family is unsure if Roman will be allowed back into the United States."

Pretty sure she doesn't want to go after experiencing American hospitality.

Iran women dance in support of arrested Instagram teen

"The Iranian government has strict rules governing women's clothing and dancing with members of the opposite sex in public is banned, except in front of immediate family members. Ms Hojabri's videos showed her dancing at home without the mandatory headscarf, or hijab."

Hijabs are required at home? I don't remember that being a rule. It makes you wonder the religious men who make these rules whether they are closet homosexuals who masturbate to gay porn.

No one wears the scarfs at home. They hate the theocracy as much as we do. They're a high IQ race who's diaspora is extremely successful and integrated second generation. That's the problem the mad mullahs have. The Persians are unsuitable for theocracy and authoritarian rule.

One of my fellow students was from Iran, she moved with the rest of her family to Florence in the 80's, I think.
She told us that, if you wanted to have a party at home, you had to invite a local policeman to avoid trouble when special police came to check up on you.
If the Anglo-Americans hadn't fucked up the region, Iran would have had a proper democracy since the 50's.

Why Jeremy Hunt's 'Japanese' wife gaffe is a bad mistake

"The UK's new Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt is on an official visit to China - but an embarrassing gaffe is stealing the headlines instead.
Mr Hunt tried to get into his host's good books by mentioning that his wife is Chinese - but called her 'Japanese' instead."

I had to read this twice. He's Foreign Secretary? Is he qualified for that cabinet position? Maybe he ought to stick to calling his wife oriental or yellow. Either that or he's clearly shagging someone else.

Just try it Saudi Arabia and we in Canada will bring our (limited) fire and fury to your desert kingdom.
Poor Justin. He just learned that even he cannot poke the Kingdom's hives with a short stick and not get stung.

Cannot be cured via selfies or dancing in native dress. He is out of ammo.

Maybe if he wears a burka and/or lets the foreign minister diddle him?

I'm not hearing the patriotism for Queen and country there. Maybe it's a west of Manitoba thing
