Data driven understanding is NOT white supremacist. It kills white supremacy.

Data driven understanding shows white supremacy has no basis in reality. It shows that race is a bogus concept and that there is no supremacy when the playing field is levelled.

It is subjectivity that subjugates people. It is individual narratives that over-ride other people. For example, "The Great Man" theory of history. Another example is the white man who ignores white privilege and class privilege to say "I worked hard for what I got" while disregarding that they had books at home and tutors and a rich school district with music classes and school trips to Europe, etc. Meanwhile people of colour had to work two jobs just to provide essentials and health care for their children.

"Individual narrative" is just a short hand for "my ignorance is just as valid as your knowledge".

Not a single share of Biden stock


Andrew Weinstein
Seems like a good time for a reminder that when @JoeBiden first ran for office in 1972 he pledged not to own a single share of stock so long as he held public office. He kept that promise for his entire political career. Honesty and ethics matter.
