    "Kappy" is out of work because he is ignorant, not be cause he is "Part" black. Is he a good QB, its debatable. A QB is only the field general. Its takes a team to be great. Point now is to sustain his relevance he keeps spewing his shit to keep in the media to make it look like he was singled out.

    Patrick Mahomes signs 10-year contract with Kansas City Chiefs, reportedly worth as much as $US503 million

    A new look to remove racial stereotyping-11924806-16x9-xlarge-jpg

    The Kansas City Chiefs have handed 24-year-old Super Bowl-winning quarterback Patrick Mahomes a contract extension reportedly worth between $US477 million and $US503 million.

    Key points:
    • Mahomes has more than $US27 million left on his current deal, leading into a 10-year contract extension
    • The new deal on its own is worth $US450 million but with incentives will see him earn far more
    • Earlier this year, Mahomes led the Chiefs to their first Super Bowl win in 50 years


    Those numbers over 10 years are believed to be the biggest contract in the history of professional sport.

    People voted Trump in because they hated Hillary more not because he was the sharpest knife in the drawer. Trump is a tool, everyone knew it going in and he opened his mouth and removed all doubt to confirm it.

    'Ignorance' clearly does very different things for different people.

    One person is a thoroughly despicable individual as exhibited in his words and behaviour for decades, the other states an opinion borne of his experience with which some disagree.

    The first person leads a life of luxury and is feted as the most powerful person on the planet, the second is out of work.

    You have to marvel at the difference. I wonder why there's such a disparity?

    Additionally we got to enjoy Colin Clapperdick spew his hate that the 4th of July is a "White Supremacist" celebration.

    And its pathetic to watch all these businesses or media NOW start virtually every event or show supporting BLM and they only do it to be PC so they do not lose an audience or sponsor. As has been said, ALM, not just African American.

    Ya just can't make this shit up.

    so much ignorance and stupidity......"Ya just can't make this shit up."

    No they didn't, trumpanzees are fucking stupid, that's why they voted for him.
    They believed all this "Drain the Swamp" shit.

    Why would it not be called 'esky' and why would you bother googling "is the esky brand racist"? This seems to be a recurring theme with you, David.
    It is in no way meant in a derogatory manner, nor are there, I'd suspect, many Inuit/Eskimos in Australia. If the companies using the term want to change it, so what. Hardly 'history-changing'.

    Explain the negative conotation of eskimo.
    Keeping in mind no one who would be referred to as eskimo is offended by it.

    Google is our friend

    "In Canada and Greenland, the term Eskimo has largely been supplanted by the term Inuit. While Inuit can be accurately applied to all of the Eskimo peoples in Canada and Greenland, that is not true in Alaska and Siberia. In Alaska the term Eskimo is commonly used, because it includes both Yupik and Iņupiat."

    Maybe it's like British and English/Welsh/Scottish.... Not all Brits are English but all English are Brits kind of thing

    I don't think 'Eskimo' is used as a pejorative term

    XENOPHOBIA, RACISMAND ANTISEMITISM PARAMETERSIN PRESENT-DAY RUSSIA

    Analyzing the dynamics in public opinions (Tables 8-11), it may be said that the share of publicethnically conditioned ressentiment, the share of respondents feeling envious or prejudiced hasconsiderably decreased over 15-18 years, and on the contrary, the bulk of the people not inclinedto maintain xenophobic attitudes and positions (deny the habitual discriminatory stereotypes) hassomewhat increased. The opinions that “non-Russians” have a “better” life are clearly fading (from 38down to 25%, with the opinion that “non-Russians have a worse life than Russians” remaining verymuch at the same level of 17 -15%). The share of opinions that national “minorities” have “too muchpower” is shrinking (from 47 down to 34%).

    The belief is maintained that social differences (as a basisfor mass envy and projection of own complexes and frustrations onto others) are not determined byaffiliation with a certain ethnic group. These shifts may be viewed as an erosion of social foundationsunderlying xenophobia. Besides, let us add that the categoric nature of all xenophobic opinions hasslightly worn off.However, over 20% of the surveyed are still ready to accuse the “foreigners” of being the reason ofRussia’s unsatisfactory situation, of Russia’s “current troubles”, shifting the responsibility from theirown social and political passive stance and the awareness of their own helplessness onto imaginaryenemies or strangers, traitors, etc.

    This component of public consciousness is extremely important forunderstanding authoritarian tendencies in the Russian society and the grounds for potential aggressiveantisemitism and xenophobia.5.1 ANTISEMITIC COMPONENT OF RUSSIAN NATIONALISMCompared to the treatment of other ethnic groups, public opinion of the Jews in Russia remains fairlyfavourable, with no aggression or dislike.

    This may be seen from the expressed minimum willingnessto set a social distance and resort to other restrictive measures and actions (Table 1, Fig.2). But the samemay be also said about the ideological component of antisemitism, being a basic element of Russianconspiratorial nationalism (if we take anti-Jewish views), and specifically, of the idea of the existence of aglobal Jewish conspiracy.

    In recent 25 years (after coming out in the open during the perestroika and theweakening of censorship of the darkest blackhundredist prejudices of the Russian nationalism), abouta third of the population has been aware of this myth, with only the last measurement conducted thisyear showing a visible decrease in the awareness of this ideologeme. So far, it is hard to tell what exactlywe are dealing with in this case: random measurement fluctuation or an appearing tendency of thisidea being gradually wiped out from the public mind as it is disappearing from the information field.

    https://www.ohchr.org/Documents/Issu...WJC-Annex3.pdf


    If we have a look at how the population understands the “Russia for Russians” motto, we can seethat each second person views it primarily as the state support of the Russian culture and traditions.Restrictive measures regarding the “non-Russian” ethnic groups are supported by a smaller number ofthe surveyed. At the same time, understanding of this motto is differentiated dependent on the ethnicaffiliation of the respondents. The sample of this research does not allow differentiating during theanalysis between the answers given by the people with a more or less fractional ethnic self-identification.Therefore, in this case, we divide the surveyed into “Russian” respondents and respondents belongingto other ethnic groups.

    There is a broad consensus among students of contemporary Russia that the political system constructed by Vladimir Putin is authoritarian and that he plays a dominant role in it. By building and expanding on these two features and by engaging in a deconstruction and reconstruction of the concept of fascism, this article suggests that the Putin system may plausibly be termed fascist. Not being a type of group, disposition, politics, or ideology, fascism may be salvaged from the conceptual confusion that surrounds it by being conceived of as a type of authoritarian political system. Fascism may be defined as a popular fully authoritarian political system with a personalistic dictator and a cult of the leader—a definition that makes sense conceptually as well as empirically, with respect to Putin's Russia and related fascist systems.
