America Fixates On 500 Assholes Instead Of Healing Its Own Institutional Racism


“The excuses are endless as to why the possibility of slavery reparations shouldn’t even be subject to mainstream debate, let alone actually tried. As soon as you suggest that liberals put their money where their mouth is because screaming at Nazis every once in awhile clearly isn’t working, they’re nowhere to be found. America’s mainstream liberals are only here for the virtue signaling merit badges; the possibility of giving black Americans a leg up after their unfathomably vicious history of exploitation and oppression is dismissed. It’s easy to condemn the white supremacists goose-stepping around outside oneself — it’s much more difficult to confront the white supremacy inherent in one’s own socioeconomic status.”

“Costa Rica is big on biodiversity and environmental conservation. In 2013, the Minister of Environment led a movement to “reinforce the idea of interacting with biodiversity in botanical parks in a natural way.” The idea was that no animal would be in captivity unless it was being rescued or saved.

Rehabilitation centers have sprung up across the country, nurturing a variety of animals (from anteaters to sloths to jaguars) back to health and releasing them into the wild.”

The rise corresponds with the beginnings of the industrial age, when factories began spewing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere that warmed the Earth at an unprecedented rate. The study was among the first to apply the methods of statistics to more precisely measure sea levels by emphasizing the precision of modern monitoring equipment and comparing it with the sedimentary record. It found that sea levels on the East Coast of the United States are rising more rapidly than at any time in the last 2,000 years.
