post #3796 of 5316


And of course it comes with only the most exceptional comments:

DoesntThinkTooHard Africans were the ones that SOLD Americans the slaves in the first place. They were criminals and unwanted on that continent to begin with. The NAACP needs to be disbanded and banned from any future establishment because that organization continues to breed racists. To be honest the ONLY racists I have ever met are Black people.

--

DoesntThinkTooMuch This is an important statistic for another reason. It debunks the idea that the Civil War was fought over slavery. Really? Would Southern men leave their families, forfeit their possessions, fight and die to preserve an institution practiced by 1.6% of the population? No, they would not. They fought to preserve their freedom, their lives, and the right of the states to determine their own destinies.

Honestly, why, Facebook is beneath you.

Not posted by a dumb friend. Rather, posted by Lawyerdaddad, who is a very smart guy with a bit of a sanctimonious streak. (No, no. Silence your astonishment. I assure you it's true, however hard it may be to believe.) And as you can probably guess, his politics make me look like Artisan Fan.

Aside from whatever else one might think of it, the ridiculous amount of build-up before getting to the "punchline" is painful.

LDD posted it with the heading "An Important Message":

Wasn't there a survey done where they found that Native Americans were even less concerned about the putative racial epithet "Redskins" than white people?

I defer to AmbulanceChaser because he's a fan of the DC professional football team formerly known as Prince. And he's neither white nor Native American, so he's the perfect tiebreaker.

I've been seeing this on the internet for years, and I still whip out the same canned response, "My name in English is Robert. My name in Japanese is also Robert— or, I suppose, Wob-buhht."

Can anyone tell me what, if anything, this is supposed to be?

I took Slate's "Which buzzfeed quiz are you" quiz

It told me I was Buzzfeed's "Which buzzfeed quiz are you" quiz.

Which told me I was Buzzfeed's "Which hogwards house do you belong in" quiz.

Which told me Ravenclaw.

How delightfully meta.

one of my friends made a big hoof about moving from Washington State to the rust belt to look for work. State school education in psych and sociology, MA in sociology, and "doctoral coursework" in sociology. Resume objective include works like "freelance social science research", "millennial interest", and "social justice".

then Facebook got to read about the perils/excitement of interviews (er, an interview).

And then about not getting the job.

And then a post about looking for work, and "I didn't get the one job that really suited me, anybody know of any other opportunities?"

And then a comment of "This article gets that education alone isn't going to guarantee well paying jobs if the economy is the sort that has either stagnating or declining wages. Instead, the ubiquity of a degree ensures credential creep- higher reqs for lower wage jobs" with the obligatory link to a NY Times opinion column.






People. Also, she named her daughter Alyx.

I've seen similar posts from a friend who is trying to find a job in academia. Her area of expertise is religion, and she's currently in the last semester of a year-long adjunct position. She applied for a lot of positions, but the search didn't go well for a job for next year, so it's looking like she won't have anything. She posted the other day about filling out a FAFSA because she somehow still has student status and is eligible for financial aid.

Now, I like this woman. She's intelligent, nice, and could probably be successful if she'd chosen an area of study that's actually marketable, but I have a real problem with the fact that taxpayers (myself included) are apparently going to be subsidizing her because she spent half a decade acquiring "skills" for a laughably poor job market.
