Now that #Oklahoma and #Texas have officially withdrawn from the #Big12-2-2-2, several academic institutions in the league have started the process of backchanneling (while of course remaining committed to the Big12-2-2-2) for a new home.
Not wanting my own beloved college cast aside to a G5 league that is more aligned with our aspirations and history, I’ve taken it upon myself to produce a similar piece, so that another elite league may choose to add us and carry us on their financial shoulders.
I of course, am speaking of University of #West #Virginia. There are several things that set #WVU apart from your average D1 entity. These unique qualities define us, and should give us immediate consideration for our admission into either the #ACC, #BIG16, #PACnumber, or #SEC.

@mauscuba7500 @ggreenwald Please share with me the s[c]ience & how it works in those 3 books you presented as "evidence" & how they are based in empiricism (not anecdotes, feelings or magical thinking)

BTW you STILL haven't answered my original question

You're all over the place!
@mauscuba7500 @ggreenwald Did you even look at my thread

Especially the later Tweets on #Eugenics & #Euthanasia

A blanket of smoke is covering #Alberta today.

Climate change events like this are becoming more frequent. So here is a short thread on air quality.

#cdnpoli #ableg #abpoli
cbc.ca/news/canada/ed…
Right now there are air quality advisories across the province.

Health Canada uses a 1-10 scale where 1 is nice clean air and 10 is a like a #Conservative government in your lungs.

Alberta uses the same scale.

#ableg #cdnpoli #absmoke ImageImageImage
A 1-10 scale is beautiful in it’s simplicity, but it also fails to communicate what’s really going ok with air pollution.

@environmentca does offer explanations for these numbers, but you have to go looking for them. Image

Boris Johnson & many others dismissed taking the knee as "gesture politics", failed to condemn "fans" booing the #England team, & consistently downplay clear evidence of structural & institutional #racism, yet the Head of MI5 says racism in England is "toxic" & "widespread". 🤔
In 1998, Frances Heidensohn discussed how since the 1970s, law & order issues are subject to 'gesture politics' (political actions or statements that are chiefly symbolic & have little or no practical effect), rhetoric, & simplistic solutions - as practiced mainly by the Tories.
Ex-banker & failed Brexit Party candidate James Bartholomew regards the welfare state as "dysfunctional", & his his book 'The Welfare State We're In' received awards from the free-market IEA & Atlas Foundation.

He coined the term "virtue signalling" in a 2015 Spectator article.

If you want to understand why little progress is being made on #racistengland, check how this Home Office Minister talks down to a colleague of colour.

Incredible.
#racism #ToryBritain
I hadn’t had the misfortune to encounter this gruesome minister, Victoria Atkins, before, but I see she voted against private landlords, of which she was one, being required to make homes ‘fit for human habitation’, which feels about right. #ToryBritain

White people telling non white people what the most appropriate gesture is or isn’t for them to take in order highlight injustice by white people against non white people is a perfect summary of the problem, frankly.
#racistengland #racism #idiocracy
If one of the critiques is that #TakeTheKnee is imported from America we should cancel most television, Halloween, Black Friday and about a billion other things too. Idiotic.
“If only black people could find a gesture against racism that we white people can unite behind it will be the end of the problem”, said no sentient being, ever. #racistengland

Black people are about 18 times more likely to be searched than their white counterparts.

But according to our culture war Government, structural & institutional racism doesn't exist.

theguardian.com/world/2021/jul…
BME children make up over half of the child population in prison (28% are black). This is an increase of 15% over the past decade.

But according to the culture war Government, structural & institutional racism doesn't exist.
By the end of secondary school, Gypsy, Roma & Traveller pupils are almost three years - & black Caribbean students 11 months - behind their white British counterparts.

But according to the culture war Government, structural & institutional racism doesn't exist.

This is what racism leads to:

✝️ A Cross For Every Farmer Murdered! 😢🙏

The world has ignored #SA farmers' pleas for help, while media is ONLY pushing the #BLM narrative…

Farmers killed just for being WHITE, out of hate, on their own farm, by Blacks.
If the world is not looking, do their lives still matter?

At what point mass murder is called #genocide?

Why is the international community not saying anything — is it because the victims are White, and the perpetrators Black?

#Racism #SouthAfrica #SA
“I can't wait until Black people lynch White people!”

Activists part of Antifa/BLM at the protest against a Christian event near Seattle shouted anti-white racist statements and “Death To America” and burned U.S. flags…

Now that the country is trying to return to “normal”, expect the #Racism & #Retaliation to re-emerge. Some of the same people, even in our industry, who were involved in the #favoritism #nepotism #cronyism gossip and whisper campaigns -that comprise the foundation of racism…
Are returning to their old habits. Let’s not forget that some of these same people cried, protested, complained and railed against #SystemicRacism, simply because they had to, to avoid being exposed and branded as what and who they are. They key is to recognize and call them out
just as we did before #GeorgeFloyd was killed. I’m grateful for the allies of all races who’ve stuck their necks out literally to support racial justice in the last year. Without them, like it or not as @RobinGivhan suggested, it took those voices to bring the kind of pressure

A response to racism allegations!

SAY NO TO RACISM AND INCITEMENT OF VIOLENCE.

As salaam u alaykum and Good morning.

I write this message as a Muslim, Indian, South African citizen.

The events of the past few days are really disheartening and disturbing.

These are scenes reminiscent of war, something our country has abhorred and distanced itself from.
Destruction and desecration of property and the occurances of death and injury can never be condoned to forward a cause in the name of 'justice'

Any person who's family or possessions are attacked, will naturally do everything in his/her control to protect and preserve the same.

Thread - Everyone meet Charlie.

Charlie did not spend today racially abusing three England players online for missing a penalty. In fact, he didn’t even think to comment on the colour of their skin at all, nor hate them even a little bit. #ENGvsITA
Charlie simply asked if he could go and practice his football after school just in case Southgate needs him to take a penalty for England when he’s 19 too. ❤️
Charlie is SO in awe of those three boys; @MarcusRashford , @BukayoSaka87 and @Sanchooo10 - exactly like the rest of the younger generation who have watched them play with the incredible courage and resilience that they have done, to earn England’s place in the final.

Reflections on last night: #eng #racism

We did an incredible job getting to the final, scenes not seen for a generation. A diverse team championing what England aspires to be, a progressive collective moving toward a shared goal. Each earning more than their keep.
I applaud each of them, but special mention must go to @BukayoSaka87 , @MarcusRashford, and @Sanchooo10 who have not only represented a community of people under duress from common people and elites alike, but shown that ascendence to greatness is individual.
Reading the words of @GarethSouthgate from earlier this year, it is clear that the @England team is very much forward-thinking in tackling #racism and he, himself, a great and empathetic leader, is forthright in tackling, against potential anger, this great cause.

Yhread : On simple technical solutions to fighting online racism and other forms of hatred.
Last night after the England gane, and the resultant avalanche of racist vitriol aimed at a handful of players, we put out an alert / appeal on Twitter:

Well, after last night's post we've had a busy day.

Yes, we were - still are - covering other soc med platforms, and other players.

We have automated scripts for this.
The flood on the accounts of Rashford, Saka and Sterling tailed off from 2.00am onwards.

One of Israel’s most respected rabbis, Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, has released a statement on the status of America as a waning world superpower and a message of hope for Israel to fill the void.
Rabbi Eliyahu also recalled the collapse of #France and Great Britain who were once “considered part of the four powers that rule the world,” He added that they collapsed just as #Europe as a whole is collapsing because of #values…or lack thereof.
The #birthrate that fell below the red line caused European leaders -MERKEL to open the #floodgates to #mass_Muslim_migration that would fill the void,
and #Europe started to totally lose its character.”

The FBI reviewed numerous exchanges between the 3 men (Garfield, Wisdom, and Owens). In one, Wisdom allegedly messaged Garfield, saying, “We can take care of druggies anytime. We need to get rid of Jews ASAP though.”🤬
The group was preparing for a full-blown race war.. “WE CAN ACCELERATE TODAY FOR A NEW WORLD TOMORROW,” and, “SP**CS AND NI***RS NEED TO HANG FROM TREES.”

Dear Fellow White People,

I am a gay woman of Jewish ethnicity living in #Texas and have faced discrimination in my life. However, my experiences are through the lens of a white woman, someone who doesn’t face the daily #SystemicRacism embedded in our society and institutions.
Let’s be clear. The USA was built on the backs of slaves, human beings who were considered property for no other reason than the color of their skin, and the institutions within this country were both developed and implemented by, and for, white people.
By virtue of this fact, white people have the inherent privilege of living in a world that was created for their benefit.

Don't call him the “Woke” General just because he reads Mao, Lenin, Stalin and all the CRT junk!

#GeneralMilley @thejointstaff
Why is this illegitimate regime bringing Wokeness into the military?

“Biden wants to weaken the military so that it’s submissive to his regime.”

Gen. Mark Milley is busy pushing Critical Race Theory and fighting Whiteness.

@TheJointStaff @DeptOfDefense
“Critical Race Theory” — Calling what the “woke" General Mark Milley and the Left is pushing on your children in schools, and in our military, and in so many institutions is inaccurate.

It’s racism!

Anti-White #Racism to be specific.

— Tucker Carlson

The delusional idea that #CriticalRaceTheory is not #antiehite is beyond insane. It literally blames whites BY NAME and demand that whites (and only whites) become a subservient underclass. /1
Yes, of course it is also deeply rooted in Marxist theory, and the #racism is just a tool to conscript an army of violent minorities as pawns to seize power… /2
But to ignore the #antiwhite core is a mistake that will lead to South Africa style violence, purges and state sponsored terror. /3

⚠️ Woke: Critical Race Theory

🚨 What's it all about⁉️

Is it real? How bad is it?

🧵 Unroll the thread: ⤵️
The “Critical Race Theory” is in fact hateful *RACISM* only this time towards the white people.

#CRT is an offshoot of Marxism, is globalist in scope, profoundly anti-Christian, and fundamentally anti-American.

⚠️ It's what Democrats have now embraced! 🤦

#CriticalRaceTheory
It's going on in UK too: Hats off to @KemiBadenoch for eloquently making the case against #CriticalRaceTheory!
