If you wanted to be particularly devilish about it , you could even make the argument that a bánh mì is an offensive appropriation of the cherished French culinary culture.

It was not lost on me. Neither was the Japanese chic trying to make out like everyone in Japan is eating nightly at Jiro's place. Ain't nobody bitching about the "chicken Parmesan" that is one of those breaded Burger King Franken-chicken things with some Prego sauce and a slice of provel melted on it.

You should see the abomination that ensues when Japanese people make "western" food. That bootleg chicken parmesan you described would look like fine dining in comparison.

I think I'm sensing a shift in the matrix of discrimination. Rather dimwitted, prejudiced beauty queens from Puerto Rico < Muslims. There was a day when a Hispanic chic could get away with this shit but I'm thinking social mobility has struck.

I urge you all to read. It's a glorious "article". It quotes comments from a NYT "article". Quoting the comments section. Fucking amazing.

Don't worry, I'd say rumors of our death have been greatly exaggerated. Until they learn the difference between "reining" and "reigning" they have zero chance of getting out from under boot heels.

What? A democrat who was racist AND president? We must still fully support this political party.

Edit: but still remove his name from all gov buildings

(And dont tell me that the party lines have shifted... I know this but the Woodrow article states how Wilson was all for democratic liberties and human rights... except for blacks)

If you haven't been affixing reins to others, you'be been squandering your white privilege.

Abstract
A core hypothesis in developmental theory predicts that genetic influences on intelligence and academic achievement are suppressed under conditions of socioeconomic privation and more fully realized under conditions of socioeconomic advantage: a Gene × Childhood Socioeconomic Status (SES) interaction. Tests of this hypothesis have produced apparently inconsistent results. We performed a meta-analysis of tests of Gene × SES interaction on intelligence and academic-achievement test scores, allowing for stratification by nation (United States vs. non–United States), and we conducted rigorous tests for publication bias and between-studies heterogeneity. In U.S. studies, we found clear support for moderately sized Gene × SES effects. In studies from Western Europe and Australia, where social policies ensure more uniform access to high-quality education and health care, Gene × SES effects were zero or reversed.

This is hilarious. A Democrat pollster finds that 30% of Republicans (and only 19% of Democrats) support bombing "Agrabah" (a fictional Arab kingdom from a Disney movie).

So the GOP pollsters poll the Democrats and find that 44% of Democrats support allowing refugees from Agrabah into the US.

No one will ever go broke underestimating the ignorance of the public.


But, I think it's a little better to blindly support accepting refugees than blindly supporting bombing. Being ok with killing essentially any Arab sounding location vs allowing refugees from anywhere?
