  1. Even for skilled labor jobs....
    To go to school for 4 or 5 years and learn the math and other skills it takes to be a journeyman is too much for the average poor/working class person.
    You really do need to be ATLEAST average IQ or a little higher.


    This is why most people don't get skilled trades.
    They can't get past the math.
    The tangents and degrees throw them off....lol

  2. The problem with unionization is that it usually takes too much intelligence, skill, planning and subversive behavior for it to get off the ground and be effective and MOST poor and workingclass people don't have enough people in their ranks to pull that off.
    Or atleast....don't have as many as wealthier people.

    At my now FORMER job, in the 8 years I've been there people have tried to unionize it atleast 5 times and it collapsed because not enough people were interested.

    Most poor and workingclass people are of average to below average intelligence.
    Not all...but most.

    They aren't interested in reading and staying late or meeting off the work site to organize.
    They just want to put their little 8 hours in, clock out....and go get drunk, high, have sex, and enjoy themselves and their families.

    The solutions for most poor and working class people must be SIMPLE so that the masses of them can participate.

  3. ProfD

    Dr. Boyce Watkins was doing an entire show about this very subject a few minutes ago.
    This might seem a little disappointing, but I really don't have that much of a problem with the cover to be honest.

    This is a very interesting subject that probably deserves it's own thread.
    Let me know if you want me to throw up another canvass for you to paint on until Troy straightens out your account.


    I personally don't have a problem with it for several reasons:

    1. I'm no longer religious so I don't find nudity and using women for sex wrong, as long as they aren't being forced into it.
    I know you don't need to be religious to have morals...and I have morals...but they don't revolve around sexual activity.
    So I personally don't find it offensive.
    I know I'm not a Black woman so I can't answer for them but as a Black man I LOVE seeing the body of Black women.  


    2.I think too many of our sisters have picked up the "any appreciation of the female body is offensive" vibe from a lot of the White feminists they went to college with.
    So now any attempt to portray Black women in a sexual light is seen as offensive.
    The fact is MOST WOMEN....of all races...are sexualized...not just Black women.


    3. We can't have it both ways.
    We can't say don't sexualize the Black woman....but when a Black man says ok and then goes after the White woman who doesn't have ANY problem getting naked and being as freaky as she wants to be...then get mad at him for chasing after White women.


    We tell the brother stop disrespecting the sister and lusting after her....so he stops and goes after the White woman.
    We tell him to stop lusting after the White woman....so he stops and starts lusting after OTHER Black men...LOL
    We tell him NO BROTHER...stop lusting after other dudes.......

    Now the poor brother don't know WHO he's allowed to lust after.
    And starts lusting after HIMSELF to be on the safe-side.

    But that's just MY opinion after so many experiences and observations of Black man/female relations.

  4. CRT is a big DISTRACTION


    Something they put up to get Black folks worked up over and get people to fighting over WHILE they're enacting laws and codes that are REALLY harmful.

    Black folks should be building our own schools and teaching our own children anyway.
    Not running around arguing with White folks and trying to force THEM to teach our children about racism....if that's the goal of CRT.

    And if the goal is to teach White folks about racism.....that's like teaching a criminal about crime.

    MY idea of Critical Race Theory wouldn't be Black folks lecturing White racists about racism.

    MY idea of Critical Race Theory would be the other way around!!!!!

    It would consist of WHITE FOLKS who go around telling Black students how racism is practiced both overtly and covertly and exposing all the tricks and lies they use.
    Not some dried up nicca with veins running through his arms standing infront of a class full of racist White folks grinning at his silly ass as he tries to teach them how "hard" it is for Black people in the U.S.....as if the folks who MADE it that way don't already know.

  5. I HOPE the fighting and division continues to escalate.

    I hope the nation ends up shutting down again.

    As far as it being a 1st Amendment issue.....
    Since WHEN was the 1sth Amendment respected???

    The people never were free to say what they want or express themselves how they wished since the founding of this country.
    That's mere cheap talk.

    They are PRIVILEDGES...not rights.
    And anytime the government or law wants to take them away from most people, they just DO so.

    You don't have a "right" not to wear as mask any more than do you have a right NOT to wear clothes when you walk out the house.

    Yes, I read a comment from you on another thread awhile back about mental ill prisoners being released back into the community and this is a major subject that bothers me too. @Pioneer1



    Yes.
    Check it out.

    He stabbed his own mother to death and went to prison for it but got released.

    They are letting violent people with mental problems out ON PURPOSE to cause chaos and instability in the community.

    That man who killed Nipsey Hustle was let out of jail early....killed Nipsey...then they caught him down the street and put him back in.

    They are RELEASING these monsters into the community on purpose and using them as weapons.

  7. I've repeatedly said for over 10 years now that Black folks need a SOLID AGENDA.

    But what I've been saying for about 3 years specifically is that INTELLIGENT and DECENT Black folks need to get together and formulate this agenda because you'll never unite ALL Black folks on everything.
     

    Unfortunately, some of our people are just plain too STUPID to know what's in their best interests.  They'll sell-out for a pack of Black-N-Milds and 12 piece party pack of Popeyes chicken.


    You can't discuss anything of importance with them.
    They won't understand if and many of those who manage to....will just screw your plans.

    Da' fuck you thank???"



    INTELLIGENT and DECENT Black folks need to organized and form an agenda.
     

    I've discovered that INTELLIGENT Black people...meaning Black people with an IQ of atleast over 95..actually tend to think quite similar.
    We notice the same things in society and actually notice the same problems.  
    When intelligent Black men get together...and leave the dope and alcohol alone while we meet...we usually come up with VIABLE solutions to our problems pretty quickly.
     

    It's usually White folks who come into the meeting interfering with the discussion or Black FOOLS who waste time talking loud and making threats that hinder progress.

    And don't let a bunch of Black fools AND some White folks be at the same meeting...they'll REALLY act up!!!
    Start showing out and competing with eachother over who the White folks agree with the most.

  8. I don't blame them at all  for leaving....I think more should.

     

    I'm a little disappointed more people haven't just given up on this society.


    It there's any justification for why we need a "Welfare State" it's this current Pandemic crisis where it's dangerous for most people to go back to work and they SHOULD be paid to stay home.
    But few people are talking about that right now.

    Too many people are "satisfied" and content with barely scraping by, leaving on pennies, hustling and scrapping like an animal, and living on people's couches.
    They've been doing it for so long...hustling like an animal is all they know.

    If poor and destitute people stuck together and refused to work unless conditions were safe and paid much more, they would have no choice but to give the people what they demand.  But too many are willing to work for scraps to feed their little drug and alcohol addictions

  9. One thing I WOULD say about the Blaxploitation films as stereotypical as they were...

    Atleast the Black man was the HERO in those movies, unlike most of the movies of today.

    They may have been low budget but the Black men always won at the end, kicking the ass and getting the women.
    They even uncovered some racist plots that were going on in the movies.
    Except for Get Out (I'm still surprised they let that movie come out) you rarely see that in a script in todays time

    I still remember Three The Hard Way and the cop scene with the martial arts...lol.

    Starting in the 80s, Black men started increasing their roles as just plain criminals, clowns, and buffoons.
    Con artists, car thieves, and then it elevated to drug dealers and kingpins like New Jack City.

    Spike Lee did his best to TRY to turn some of that around but the power of Hollyweird was just too strong.

    Like the OJays...Hollyweird had their hooks in some of these brothers to the point they went stone damn crazy!

    Why can't they stand on  that claim?? Your question makes no sense.  Secondly,  they don't have to answer for an opinion I expressed.  The can  maintain what they believe. .  


    You're CLAIM...that souls have no gender...makes no sense, if you feel that they can stand on the claim that their soul is in the "wrong body".

    IF you are right....then Transgender people who believe they are trapped in the wrong body ARE wrong for feeling that their gender doesn't line up with the sex of their body.

    Body and soul are not the same.

     

    I never said that, nor is that even my point

    The point is.....
    IF (and it hasn't been established) a Soul has no gender then how can Trans people who claim they are trapped in the body of the wrong sex -stand ON that claim?


  12. This is one of the reasons I have so much respect for Dave Chappelle.
    The man walked away from $50 million at what was at that time the height of his career....because they asked him to put on a dress.

    He has dignity and self-respect.

    I don't agree with everything he says and does because he became famous playing a powder lipped crack head and other silly stereotypes....but he stood by HIS principles and didn't sell out.

    That's the part I respect.


    I'll tell you who I WAS disappointed in though

    Wesley Snipes

    I didn't think he'd ever put on a dress but he did it for some Two Wong Fu movie for a hot second and I thought it was so disappointing.
    Snipes was my man.
    I don't think he did it again afterwards but, still.....

    Antwone Fisher said that his abusive step mother used to call him and his other siblings "nigga" instead of their actual names.

    He said she said it so much that they could tell which one of them she was calling or talking to by the WAY she said it.

    A record number of Americans are quitting their jobs

     

    New York (CNN Business)A record 4.3 million people quit their jobs in August, evidence of the considerable leverage workers have in today's economy.

    About 2.9% of the workforce quit in August, up from 2.7% in July, according to the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) report, released Tuesday. That marks the highest quit rate since the report began in late 2000.
    The number of workers who quit rose by 242,000 from July as more Americans demanded higher pay, better working conditions and more flexible arrangements. Those number of people who quit rose in accommodation and food services, wholesale trade and state and local government education.
    "If you're unhappy with your job or want a raise, in the current environment it's pretty easy to find a new one," said Gus Faucher, chief economist at PNC. "We're seeing people vote with their feet."
     
     
    Companies continue to grapple with a serious worker shortage. Job openings remained very high at the end of August at 10.4 million, the JOLTS report showed. However, that marks a decline of 659,000 from the end of July.
    The numbers show the worker shortage was even worse than realized this summer. The number of job openings in July was revised higher to 11.1 million, a record high since this report began in 2000.

    'Golden age' for workers

    Joe Brusuelas, chief economist at RSM, said this may be witnessing the start of what might eventually be considered the "golden age for the American worker."
     
    "The American worker is now confident that he or she has the bargaining power and can obtain a reasonable wage -- and have influence over the shape of working conditions," Brusuelas said.
    That bargaining power comes from their willingness to quit jobs they don't like and look for new ones. And this shift is not merely centered on simple economics -- but a broader reassessment around quality of life and purpose.
    "This is what happens after great wars or depressions," Brusuelas said. "It's hard to spot while you're in it, but we've gone through a shock that has elicited an unexpected change upon the population. And it will take some time to sort through."
    All of this helps explain why employers, including factories, trucking companies, restaurants, construction firms and schools, are having trouble finding workers.
    In the long run, such a workforce transformation will be a positive thing, allowing more people to find satisfaction in their careers and for businesses to have happier employees. And it can allow more workers to make a living wage and contribute to the broader economy, easing the alarming gap between rich and poor.
    In the short run, however, the worker shortage will continue to complicate the reopening of the global economy, contributing to rising prices, supply chain stress, product shortages and shipping delays.
    "It takes some for these things to work themselves out," said PNC's Faucher.
