13. I can speak in public to a powerful male group without putting my race on trial.
Well Peggy, if you plant yourself in front of this powerful male group and open that yap hole, you can rest assured, that your whiteness will indeed be on trial.
It does not make one a racist to point out the truth…
14. I can do well in a challenging situation without being called a credit to my race.
The preeminent ideology of low expectations is the democrat party, which has long been the party of slavery, Jim Crow, the Ku Klux Klan, and mass incarceration.
Texas GOP Chairman Allen West perfectly highlights this in his statement below:
“We hear the rantings from the left about systemic racism, but the truth cannot be hidden. Joe Biden is a representative of the real purveyors of systemic racism in America, the Democrat Party. Their delusional hypocrisy is utterly disconcerting, abjectly disturbing. This short video gives evidence, using Biden’s own words, of the depth of the disdain they have for the Black community. And shame upon Kamala Harris to embrace the politics of personal opportunism to further betray those with whom she claims unity as being “Black.” Never forget, the Republican Party of Texas was founded on July 4th, 1867 by 150 courageous Black men. At the same time the Democrats were creating the Ku Klux Klan. The once violent racism of the Democrats has been replaced by the soft bigotry of low expectations, but it’s just a continuation of systemic racism.”Texas GOP
I’d bet my best layin’ hen that no one is calling Allen West a credit to his race. He’s just a patriotic man with great ideas.
If a group of folks are tired of comments like, “you’re a credit to your race”, maybe that group should police itself and stop letting this (below) be representative of “success” in said group.
It does not make one a racist to point out the truth.
15. I am never asked to speak for all the people of my racial group.
Because you’re stupid Peggy. Not much more to say about that.

Poor Fox News, Rachel Maddow’s Ratings Are Through The Roof
Fox News has forever excused their dishonest propaganda programming with the reply “but look at our ratings!” Fox can’t brag about their ratings anymore. To do so, they would have to bring up one Ms. Rachel Maddow, who is kicking them in the pants not only compared to other cable news programs, but across all of cable television.Crooks & Liars

“We Do This ’Til We Free Us”: Mariame Kaba on Abolishing Police, Prisons & Moving Toward Justice
This week, the House passed the police reform measure known as the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, sending it to the Senate just as former police officer Derek Chauvin is set to go on trial Monday in Minneapolis for his role in the police killing of George Floyd. But outrage over police killings and harassment and the mass incarceration of Black and Brown people and immigrants has also generated calls to go beyond reform, to defund and abolish the police. This is the focus of our next guest. Mariame Kaba’s new book, titled We Do This ’Til We Free Us: Abolitionist Organizing and Transforming Justice, has just hit number nine on The New York Times best-seller list.Democracy Now
