    It’s always been a clown world.

    And always will be. All the shrieking and virtue signalling in the world won’t change this.

    As a black person I find it amusing that liberals believe they've actually helped us in some way.

    Paid propaganda to perpetuate the lie.

    You're coming at this from the side because you know I'm right about the history.

    The point is that the Left is trying to bring back segregation, racism, and everything we fought to end.

    Yes, those days were indeed terrible and nobody on this board is remotely glorifying or speaking fondly of them - nightmarish days, those. But those topics - abolishing slavery, civil rights etc - were actually important topics and 100% of people on this board would have supported those things had they been around then.

    Topics such as 'allowing trans people to play sports against women', are not important in the slightest. Completely irrelevant drivel that is only being pushed to placate the rabid leftists who continue to move from 'hot topic' to 'hot topic' and demand change where change is not necessary.

    Clownworld.

    Yeah, you didn't read TS's post.

    Clown world is a reactionary way of thinking. When one considers the full scope of history we can see that the world is a pretty decent place to live in today.

    Take NYC for example. All we hear about it from a certain group is how terrible it is but yet crime is nowhere near what it once was.

    People always talk about the 80's and 90's as if it was some sort of utopia in America. There was more racism and WAY more crime. Like a shit ton more but yet people romanticize that time period and call this period of time clown world.

    Who is trying to bring back segregation?

    And who is "we" when you say we fought to end it?

    This comes across like a Dinesh D'Souza movie tagline.

    People are tribal in nature. It comes naturally and makes sense to a large degree. It's how we kept societies together and avoided outside and possibly "dangerous" influence. Every race has enslaved their brethren, or, when allowed; other races. Religions fought with each other. That kind of thing isn't uncommon.

    Cheap labor makes sense. Making use of slaves made sense in the past since slavery had been around for as long as humans existed. It doesn't make it right, but it makes sense that people did something that was common and profited them. Show me a predominantly Muslim country that has allowed a Christian or Jew to gain the highest office in my lifetime. Many have laws forbidding this. Does that make these countries "clown world" since they don't have true equality? Would Israel be "clown world" if they didn't allow a Muslim to lead them?

    People call today "clown world" because idiots think a 4 year old can decide their sex or that it's legal and should be legal for a parent to decide on hormone therapy for kids. It's clown world when supposed "Anti Fascists" act like fascists and attack, denigrate, and suppress the rights of others. It's clown world when a man says he's a woman and proceeds to kick real women's asses in sports.

    It's clown world when we venerate a career criminal who f*cked up and died during interaction with the police. It's clown world when our major cities see thousands of Blacks murdered every year yet the same political party is in power and the focus is on police reform or "gun violence" instead of criminals, gangs, lack of parenting, job opportunities, or the failures of elected leaders.

    Today's liberals are bringing back segregation. Where have you been that you haven't seen liberal colleges adopting segregated dorms, activity centers, student bodies, etc?

    It's been chronicled by Forbes, APNews, USAtoday, FOXnews, WaPo, and others and has been a topic on Reddit and other sites.

    How many schools are doing this? Is it being adopted on a large scale? Do you think that in the near future we will have all white and black children going to separate schools?

    Honestly, I don't know how many overall have adopted this. NYU has moved towards this, Cal State University has already had a segregated space, Michigan State has done it, and I'd have to look for the other examples that I've seen as I don't want to lie and wrongly post.

    The schools or some media outlets deflect or cover because they say that the segregation isn't "forced" or the that it was "requested" and granted to the students who asked for it. They know it's wrong, they know it stifles growth, learning, and appreciation of other cultures yet it goes on.
