PG likes to listen to internet audio content while editing pictures. The idea is to listen to the talking voices, avoid interruptions, and create content. This works well, until PG hears something quotable. Today, it was Moby, on The Bret Easton Ellis Podcast. @chamblee54 “I’m feeling just a little bit smug because I just found out what cis gender means” @thelittleidiot @BretEastonEllis

Bloggingheads.tv is notoriously bad for multitasking. It has a video image, with the risk of taking screen shots. BHTV also has a device that allows you to make samples, whenever you hear something interesting. The Glenn Show, episode 43716, lasted 2:46 before the quote buzzer went off.

The show featured Glenn Loury and John McWhorter. The two men, both professors at Ivy League Schools, are the “Black guys at Bloggingheads.” They tend to talk about race relations a lot, like the rest of America. Whoever said that people don’t like to talk about race is mistaken. Americans LOVE to talk about race, often at top volume. Exaggerated gestures, logical gymnastics, and redundant rhetoric are the order of the day. Whether anyone is listening is another matter.

The first saved comment was when Dr. McWhorter said that someone called someone a racist. It sounded the same as someone saying, fifty years ago, that someone was a communist. PG has written about this before, comparing anti racism to McCarthyism and homophobia. There was an unsigned comment… “Will you just put on your white sheet and come out already?” Good times.

A few minutes later, Dr. McWhorter mentioned that a taxi has never refused to pick him up. This compares to a comment made by Ta-Nehisi Coates in the Playboy interview. “I’ve never had a white person call me a nigger.”

The Glenn Show tends to downplay the effect of racism, and focus on issues like mass incarceration and black on black crime. There was a comment made about the soft bigotry of low expectations. Another remark decried people who wave the racism bloody shirt.

Many people disagree. You will not need to look far to find them. This tweet is another POV. @kat_blaque White people will make it a hobby to create stock accounts to tell me I look like a gorilla, but deadass deny racism exists. lol.

Another example is a video. A cashier at a Family Dollar saw three children dressed in “cultural garments.” The lady made the mistake of asking them if they were going trick or treating. The mother of the children went ballistic. “Racist bitch” is one of the milder things she said.

Right now, it is highly fashionable to say that Donald Trump is a racist. A good case could be made that he is. However, a lot of people are tired of being yelled at about race. Dr. Loury presents a scenario how this constant racism bashing may help Mr. Trump might get elected. Pictures today are screen shots of Dr. Loury and Dr. McWhorter, edited by chamblee54.
