    John Hamilton I saw her on Amanpour & Co last night. Delightful person, great vibe, articulate and courageous. I, male, veteran, former football player, building tradesperson (plumber, electrician), am not threatened by strong and intelligent women. I have a slightly different take on race - that, as geneticists recognize, there is no such thing as race. There are no consistent characteristics that constitute a race. Historically there wasn't a concept of race, but it emerged in the era of colonialism and African slavery. It is a natural human tendency to be tribal and to look for differences to define other people as meaningfully different. Bob Dylan wrote a song many years ago about this - Only a Pawn in Their Game - and performed it at the March on Washington in 1963. It is available on ISsofts.

    White privilege makes no sense. Every situation needs to be looked at individually not because a black person is denied certain privilege doesn't mean its because of race. Black people have the privilege just like everyone to succeed. 1 fact, how did a black president got elected, when majority of the country is white? You guys need to stop pulling this race card. Why don't you talk about the blacks that die everday it far out weighs the amount of police killings & majority of the times they are criminals but the news won't focus on that or even say it was justified.. they just want to talk about white police kill black man, isn't weird black police killing white don't make it big, I'm sure videos out there but don't we hear about those? All this what they are saying in the video might sound good but it all comes down to facts & common sense, evidence etc. Do we know the names of most of the blacks that are killed not by the police? We should start with us black people, what's causing us to die by our fellow blacks in such high numbers ?we must can be held accountable just like we want to hold others accountable, I think that's fair. Jamaica 92% black and crime is really bad there, I'm sure it's not white supremacy...one common thing Jamaicans & black Americans have in common is, missing fathers 🤔 just to give one example.

    Covid19/Corona Virus is not a disease of nature it is a cyber (celestial) virus sent thru data. The 5G and 6G technology it is an Data driven Ether based cyber (celestial)Entity that is using our body as a host. It is a wake up call for us to know the truth about: 1) planetary colonization, 2) racisim our white or "pink" brothers planned to transform us into "Ailens" and 3) slavery or kill us thru anatomical manipulation of our lungs and air passages for breathing(Covi19/Corona Virus) but, "pink" fucked up like the African's and enslaved his "pink" brother (Bitcoin) which has broken the ban of slavery on all blacks a code introduced by Napoleon Bonaparte. Man has mastered energy, chemicals, and algorithims. Some doctor and scientists have agreed on a code of conduct that requires people to behave in a certain way (face masks, social distancing, and a pland - demic . This behavior and the closing of stores and the antisocial behavior causes Disease in the body and death (psych, social, emotional trauma); altering the norms in society: Is in essence scientist have called on an evil spirit and they have created a place for it in society. Our bodies were seasoned and conditioned in advance via the technology we have been using over time for (Covid19 Entity attachment & to turn human beings into multi-planetary beings). Elon Musk of South Africa has a company called SpaceX and they have been colonizing Mars and the Moon (see the Wall Street Journal). Elon Musk also has a company named Neurolink - they link brains together as a data base like we link computers together to manipulate data. We become the data (AI) being manipulated. Bitcoin the new Crypto currency is actually people being controlled by the bit of their teeth. Wear a bandanna -The mandatory mask's people are wearing now is to train the ear lobe DNA -the ears allow for remote control of the feet where you are going and access to the spine (nervous system). A bit is a horses teeth. Ether (Entity) Crypt (death) They have turned / are turning human beings into multi - planetary beings in order for them to survive in space. Something happened and people are starving on the planets and man on Earth has decided to enslave us via technology. Trying to use technology to turn us into remote controlled people. Man on the planets figured out a way to tell us what is happening to them and the scientist are calling it: Covid19. Some men on Earth are walking around outside their bodies as Entities and they enter other bodies on Earth at will. Some men from the planets are walking the Earth as Entities, and Entities (esp. known to Asians) are walking the Earth as themselves Entities. All three forms of Entities have feelings, emotions, and desires and the vaccine will harm any form of Entity. The dairy or vitamin D3 if you are lactose intolerant is to sustain your body thru the process people wiill go thru physically in Jesus name to look back the way God created us. Man has decided that their is no God or Jesus and he will do as he please's - God gave Jesus the last word. My name is Elizabeth and I am an unknown Oracle. The tech industry introduced a (Sexual Entity) into society and they call it Cybersex a "new" way to have sex - mentally - no one is there (physically touching you) but the woman or man knows (can feel) the Entity in the room touching and feeling you. They have introduced this same technology Entity to Doctors as the "virtual doctor" that allows doctors to work on you while he is in New York and you are in Nigeria. This is the same technology used for AI (Automated Intelligence) and Automated Cars. Ether + Electricity + Industrial and house hold chemicals = An Alien Thru our computers and cell phones an algorithim is sent out (signal) to our bodies, creating nodules that alter the DNA - the nodules tell the altered DNA (fluid flowing in a redirected path) to reshape the mind and body. They planed to make us look like creatures (human genomes, mutants). People like Elon Musk have even been celebrating ritualisticaly "the burning of man" I guess they wanted to get rid of the image of man as we know ourselves but they didn't get permission from God. We are at the time in the bible were Jesus steps in and turns us into HIS creation "new" creatures in Christ. I hope this explains it all but if you have any more questions I am here to help.

    Oprah has more privilege than most millionaires. Let's also talk about the pyrimid scheme - a system that expiloits working people for the benefit of the millionaire class. The new "antiracism",mired in identity politics, has been weaponised to undermine a class consciousness. As Adolph Reed Jr., The eminent Scholar and Black activist, states, this "new antiracism" is playing the role that racism once played- to divide workers along racial lines. The author appears sincere, but seems to espouses CRT. A traditional workers solidarity antiracism champions a multiracial movement to challenges the oligarchy

    The biggest mistake those who talk about race make is when they keep referring to Brown, red, pink, blur skinned people white. White colour denotes; pure, innocent, smart, superior, neutral etc and I have not come across any human who is white in completion; I have seen dark, chocolate, pale, blurr but not yet met a black person yet....

    Basically she is saying a bad apple as as the head of anything leading us is a bad idea because it teaches the rest to do bad things. Just don't buy into someone else's promise of power especially when they have a history of not sharing things and just using people to get something turned in their favor, to fight their fight for them with a false promises given. She said everything I've been telling my friends and family lol... Good to know she shared those thoughts on a large scale. I see the determination in her and hope the best for her.

    Dear Trevor please tell your personal private friends & family that vitamin D3 and dairy products cause the Covid19 test to come back negative. Dairy products like milk, cheese, and *yogurt are suggested. When eating yogurt swish some between your teeth and gums and cell phones should be used only when needed until our bodies adjust to the new frequencies. We are becoming new creatures in Jesus Christ's name because the tech company's made a deal with entities to turn us (man) into creatures (human genomes and multi-planetary beings) - changing God's creation into creatures - because of this abomination against God and because some men think they are God we have to go thru a mental and physical change in Jesus name. This change in Jesus name will bring society back to normal again - The intake of Dairy products or Vitamin D3 are important to focus on right now because that will help to usher in the old normal.............

    I still believe it is not about race as behind that discussion is the collective trauma of Africans being kidnapped for slavery. It is the notion of colonialism, exploiting other human beings and treating them as objects. And it lives on until today. The US need more historical series and movies which treat the stories from a human perspective, like The movie Color Purple or the series Finding your Roots.

    Read her book, eye-opening to how privilege works in 🇺🇸. Sorry about your 🏡 burning down.

    I think an interview with Cokeman Hughes would be a nice balance ~ a lot of folks believe that MLK's non-racism is actually better than reverse bigotry like demonizing white men with no nuanced analysis & one-way empathy. ~*

    She should not only lecture but also teach at universities, instead of these white old conservative men.

    the u.s.&a. are always talking about George Floyd, but NEVER about Cedric Chauviet who died EXACTLY the same way in france altho he was white. WHY IS THAT SO?

    Watching the problem of white supremacy on a global scale helps a lot to understand it's nature. First of all, white people are used to the fact, that their skin color is never an issue. This is the major privilege (normalis boring's comment hints to this). It doesn't mean you cannot have existential problems as a white person but the problem of being discriminated just by the color of your skin will never come on top of it. This still counts even in many African countries which shows the persistence of white supremacy around the globe. Whiteness is never spoken about and white people don't recognize this - because it's never spoken about. That's why the resistence is so strong. It's about the loss of privileges those inheriting them only realize them, when they feel that they are about to loose them. There is not much room for the understanding, that it is - like Trevor Noah correctly said - not about you loosing and me winning but about all of us winning by improving the overall situation.

    I will have to come back and actually listen to her wisdom. For now, I am just distracted by how pretty she is, the fact that she kept her gap tooth which in the Nigerian culture is one of the features that represent beauty but in the Western culture it is not hence people use braces to close the gap! Ride on my Igbo ( Nigerian tribe) sis!!!

    What Noah does not understand is not that Whites are uncomfortable about race but the ideological framework it comes in. White male supremacy is an abstraction - it is the ideological way in which Nazi-Marxists - a template in which they present it. It is no different from theb Hitlerite attacks on Jews. It is also true that it is exactly the rich Blacks 0 like Trevor Noah - who became stinking rich in America on the basis of "White" capital. There are enough American Blacks who see right through this ideological attacks.
