Stealth Reparations Continue Unabated

The White House has opted for a dog whistle strategy: making proposals that Blacks will recognize as beneficial and targeted to their special problems without triggering white backlash.

I noticed. Other whites are picking on the code, and can now hear the dog whistle.

We know the "invasion" is not going to be at Calais.

Perhaps white people pick up on it a lot faster in the desegregated south... we've been pushed around by the fucking NAACP for so fucking long now and it doesn't matter what you say or how you live, if you are white, you are racist.

Yes, RC, they've had to educate a whole generation into believing that. But the belief isn't holding too firmly in these parts, largely because of places like Philly, where we behold from not too far away, a cesspit of their own making. Lancaster County is the refugee camp of white Philadelphians.
