re: There are entire TV series glamorizing, humanizing, and sympathizing White Americans! - funnystuff
The Wire, Power, American Gangster; the truth is that drug dealing plots are vastly over represented and glamorized on both television and film compared to reality, and that’s the case for absolutely every race. Selective outrage is obvious and ridiculous...

re: NBA, Disney, Google (and who else?) don’t get enough grief for their China policies - funnystuff
I can’t unfortunately, at least not yet. I have been hearing hints about it through a series of webinars coming out of Rice University’s Baker Institute For Public Policy. During these webinars, several of their researchers have been previewing a series of coming publications where they will lay out...

re: NBA, Disney, Google (and who else?) don’t get enough grief for their China policies - funnystuff
The NBA and Disney both have terrible policies as it relates to China, but neither of them pale in comparison to Google (and honestly, most all of big tech more generally). As the current landscape stands now, a significant number of US technology firms are actively partnering with the CCP in a trul...

re: Cut federal funds for “sanctuary schools” with token in person classes to circumvent ICE - funnystuff
What’s the problem here? When I’ve repeatedly asked what the value of this ICE regulation is, the only answer I’ve received is that it is a bargaining chip that will force universities to offer face-to-face classes. Now your saying, this regulation is forcing universities to offer face-to-face cours...

re: top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs "A clash is coming soon with China, people wi - funnystuff
It depends what he means by “violent confrontation”. I read that and hear actual fighting with human casualties. But the words violent and confrontation have both been so watered down recently that I’m not sure that’s what he means. For example, I could certainly see China continuing to step up t...

re: Cancel Culture and the illegitimacy of our government for allowing it - funnystuff
I have a right to say that I think the earth is flat, but I’d understand why SpaceX wouldn’t want to employ me if I said that. I get where you’re coming from, but in practice it would be god-awful policy to give the government the power to dictate who a firm must employ....

re: A Scene From My Po Dunk Louisiana Hometown Washed Over Me Like A Soothing Tonic - funnystuff
I love those places. Folks like to paint racism into every aspect of southern life (and could probably force it into even this story if it suited their agenda), but 99.9% of all of my interactions in Louisiana have been people living harmoniously with decency, respect and love for one another. I’ve ...

re: Going back to the theaters - funnystuff
Been a couple times already; it’s been extremely nice. Love having the extra space. Haven’t gone to any of the mega-chains though, wanted to go circulate some money with a smaller, regional company who is getting hit worse. But I can’t wait for tenet. Really looking forward to having something ne...

Can’t speak for any other fields than the one I’m in, but I’ve never had anything close to that type of clause/condition in any of my contracts (I’m in academia)....

re: Biden: Fast food workers have to sign non compete agreement - funnystuff
It’s possible, but when you think of a “fast food worker”, that’s not the natural image that gets called to most people’s minds. If he’s talking about that type of job, he could have referenced any number of other industries where his audience would have more naturally conjured that type of dynamic ...

re: Biden: Fast food workers have to sign non compete agreement - funnystuff
Like most people in this thread, I assumed this was bullshite, because it’s just such a nonsensical thing to say that I had to assume that no national politician would utter such idiotic words. Alas, a search for the speech proved me wrong. [link=(https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.rev.com/blog/tran...

re: Universities attempting to circumvent new rules regarding international students - funnystuff
A) That’s bullshite B) You missed the part about the rent, food, entertainment and general day-to-day spending that we also lose by deporting all of them. C) I still have not heard you, or anyone else, provide a single viable benefit to this policy. The closest thing to one I see is that we get...
