MEDIA, HISTORY, KAREN, AND HOAX
Media has been awash recently with informative highlights.
One supposes Representative Mfume (https://mfume.house.gov/) saw himself as in-the-know by stepping in it during his interview with Rev. Al on MSNBC. He should have been more alert because Rev. Al first stepped in it several years before. A few thoughts—-
*Rev. Al’s question to Rep Mfume was, do Americans place more weight in the contents of a man’s character than the color of his skin, in 2023? (paraphrase)
*Rep Mfume enumerated a number of examples of racist actions toward minorities
*Among the examples was one of what he called “Karens” chasing minority people out of neighborhoods into which a minority member may have wandered
*Reference to “Karens” originated with Rev. Al after an incident in which a young woman, presumably white, had attacked a black youth over a cell phone
*Karen is a stereotypical white woman’s name
*The news during the 2020 Presidential campaign was full of stories of wrong-doing by women, from Democratic strategists working their magic in the 2020 Presidential campaign, and to use the phrase coined by them, “especially white women”
*D strategists jumped on this story like a dog on a bone
*Then the woman was identified and interviewed on MSM, in which this spirited young woman emphatically announced “I’m not white”……you go girl
The story faded from the repertoire of D strategists, but reference from some Democratic Party advocates arises periodically, because they seem to have forgotten the origin, context or implications of this “news report”.
Free Speech reigns and Representative Mfume can say whatever he wishes, as can others then set the record straight. History in the USA is sufficiently strained. More isn’t needed.
Misogyny seemed a part of portions of Presidential-candidate campaigning in 2020. Perhaps if Democrats of that era had worked to codify Roe v. Wade, women wouldn’t be threatened with loss of liberty of reproductive rights in 2023, but then abortion couldn’t be used as a Democratic campaign strategy in 2024.——gotcha……
European culture is intensely rich and diverse, aside from stereotyping in Establishment history. https://wildhunt.org/2023/04/sacred-fire-beltanes-indo-european-roots-and-multicultural-connections.html –The common ancestors for anyone with heritage from Western to Eastern Europe, and south into India, are the Indo-Europeans. Around 6,000 years ago, the Indo-Europeans descended from the Pontic-Caspian Steppe, a region today found in Ukraine and Russia, and spread out into the Mediterranean, to the British Isles, into Scandinavia, and as far as Persia and India.

Communists nationalize right up front, while capitalists first drain the public of wealth and then nationalize, as seems happening with banks.
Beware of anything reported by RT, since Russia is our enemy. At the same time, apparent news black out in the US media on topics crucial if democracy is possible, may be found in such sources.

As one who would be perfectly contented to retain the Senate if they adhered to Oaths of Office more than to Citizens United campaign donations, one is interested in a topic raised as to the reason we maintain the US Senate—-
