Tidbits #46

How many times should you look up to the sky, before you observe that you don’t own the universe?

How many should die of famine before local agriculture are made priority in investment?

Up to 20% of Africa’s debt is owed to China, what amount to about $2 trillion.

There are 4 national anthems without official lyrics. Spain has argued over which words to add for years.

I wish all national Anthem cover basic rights of humanity and kindness. Thw world will be much better instructed with repeated singing of a great anthem

What composer Francis Scott Key meant in “no refuge” in the “land of the free” in “The Star-Spangled Banner”?  The British in the battles that inspired “The Star-Spangled Banner” rescued 6,000 slaves from the US colonials.

Is a reflected cruelty the one unpardonable sin? What if this predetermined cruelty was a response to a prolonged reflective cruelty of the other person or a group of people? Wouldn’t that cruelty be considered a self-defence legitimate reaction?

The public reckoning for police use of facial recognition software. On Monday, IBM disavowed the technology entirely and CEO Arvind Krishna condemned its use “by other vendors, for mass surveillance, racial profiling, violations of basic human rights and freedoms.” Amazon responded Wednesday by putting a one-year moratorium on police use of its Rekognition software, closely followed by Microsoft’s promise not to sell the technology to US police.

The main difference between human genders is: After sex, the male’s mind is blank, while the female’s is overcrowded. If the female fails to prime the silence with an opinion, without any questions, the conversation is declined. And you have people claiming that it is Not the woman who generates the ideas. I deduce that people who are denied sex, their opinions are Not shared and go unnoticed.

This useless cruel pride of America and worst, the predetermined mind to inflict cruelty for a sick unbounded ego of superiority, even when living a wretched life in isolated and desolate corners in their land.

We are trained to become racist: by the family, the community and schools. On devient racist: la famille et la communauté’ nous ont coupe’ les ponts. Et l’école n’est pas mieux avec son enseignement tacit. Comment peut-on communiquer si les questions fondamentales ne sont pas pose’ pour réfléchir dessus?

5 facts we have to contend with: Climate change, frequent recurring deadly viruses, tougher resistant bacteria to antibiotics, degraded air quality, degraded potable water quality. Either we fight back or we adapt.

3/4 of babies born by sterilized caesarean surgery have high risks for allergies and asthma: The natural bacteria received from natural birth are lacking, such as lactobacilli and womb germs, especially if they don’t sucks their mom’s milk or are severed prematurely. It is like they were Not immersed in the magical potion at birth. Babies can become adult in intestine bacteria flora at the age of 3.

There are at least 3 different kinds of intestine in predominance of bacteria or enterotypes:

1. Bacteroides that produce plenty of biotin (B7 or B8 or H) which the foetus consume a lot and are dedicated to carnivorous specimen

2. Prevotella that produce vitamin B1 or thiamine that is used mainly by the brain, The lack of it generate beriberi (deficiency in movement)

3. Ruminococcus that manufacture blood through the heme. Each of these families of bacteria have common characteristics for splitting the food, manufacturing substances and neutralizing varieties of toxin.

Kids observe their parents: if the parents behave according to humanity standards and are active in confronting social unfair and Not equitable behaviors, they raise themselves accordingly. Actions of parents translate into positive peer pressures at school.

 

 

 

Millennial people: Numbers show they are more Racist than they think

Young whites have the same level of racial stereotypes as their parents

Just look at the numbers.

News about race in America these days is almost universally negative.

Longstanding wealth, income and employment gaps between whites and people of color are increasing, and tensions between police and minority communities around the country are on the rise.

A few claim there’s a glimmer of hope: The next generation of Americans, they say, is “post-racial”—more tolerant, and therefore more capable of easing these race-based inequities.

Unfortunately, closer examination of the data suggests that millennials aren’t racially tolerant, they’re racially apathetic: They simply ignore structural racism rather than try to fix it.

Millennials Are More Racist Than They Think

In 2010, a Pew Research report trumpeted that “the younger generation is more racially tolerant than their elders.”

In the Chicago Tribune, Ted Gregory seized on this to declare millennials “the most tolerant generation in history.”

These types of arguments typically cling to the fact that young people are more likely than their elders to favour interracial marriage.

But while millennials are indeed less likely than baby boomers to say that more people of different races marrying each other is a change for the worse (6 percent compared to 14 percent), their opinions on that score are basically no different than those of the generation immediately before them, the Gen Xers, who come in at 5 percent.

On interracial dating, the trend is similar, with 92 percent of Gen Xers saying it’s “all right for blacks and whites to date each other,” compared to 93 percent of millennials.

These questions don’t really say anything about racial justice: After all, interracial dating and marriage are unlikely to solve deep disparities in criminal justice, wealth, upward mobility, poverty and education—at least not in this century.

(Black-white marriages currently make up just 2.2 percent of all marriages.)

And when it comes to opinions on more structural issues, such as the role of government in solving social and economic inequality and the need for continued progress, millennials start to split along racial lines.

When people are asked, for example, “How much needs to be done in order to achieve Martin Luther King’s dream of racial equality?” the gap between white millennials and millennials of color (all those who don’t identify as white) are wide.

And once again, millennials are shown to be no more progressive than older generations: Among millennials, 42 percent of whites answer that “a lot” must be done to achieve racial equality, compared to 41 percent of white Gen Xers and 44 percent of white boomers.

The most significant change has been among nonwhite millennials, who are more racially optimistic than their parents.

(Fifty-four percent of nonwhite millennials say “a lot” must be done, compared with 60 percent of nonwhite Gen Xers.)

And this racial optimism isn’t exactly warranted. The racial wealth gap has increased since the 2007 financial crisis, and blacks who graduate from college have less wealth than whites who haven’t completed high school.

A new paper by poverty experts Thomas Hirschl and Mark Rank estimates that whites are 6.74 times more likely to enter the top 1 percent of the income distribution ladder than nonwhites.

And Bhashkar Mazumder finds that 60 percent of blacks whose parents were in the top half of income distribution end up in the bottom, compared with 36 percent of whites.

As to how well whites and nonwhites get along, only 13 percent of white millennials say “not well at all,” compared with 31 percent of nonwhite millennials.

(Thirteen percent of white Gen Xers and 32 percent of nonwhite Gen Xers agree.)

In a 2009 study using American National Election Studies—a survey of Americans before and after each presidential election—Vincent Hutchings finds, “younger cohorts of Whites are no more racially liberal in 2008 than they were in 1988.”

My own analysis of the most recent data reveals a similar pattern: Gaps between young whites and old whites on support for programs that aim to further racial equality are very small compared to the gaps between young whites and young blacks.

And even though the gaps within the millennial generation are wide, as with the Pew data, there is also evidence that young blacks are more racially conservative than their parents, as they are less likely to support government aid to blacks.

Spencer Piston, professor at the Campbell Institute at Syracuse University, used ANES data and found a similar pattern on issues relating to economic inequality.

He examined a tax on millionaires, affirmative action, a limit to campaign contributions and a battery of questions that measure egalitarianism.

He says, “the racial divide (in particular the black/white divide) dwarfs other divides in policy opinion.

Age differences in public opinion are small in comparison to racial differences.” This finding is, he adds, “consistent with a long-standing finding in political science.” Piston finds that young whites have the same level of racial stereotypes as their parents.
