Study: anti-black hiring discrimination is as prevalent today as it was in 1989

This thing's setting off all my alarms, yet I can't quiiiite pinpoint the major issue. :p
Failing to clean up my own mistakes since the early 80s.

Maybe there wasn't really much in 1989 to begin with?

And just how well were these supposedly equivalent resumes matched up?  The study that demonstrated women are twice as likely as men to get offered US university academic positions in STEM fields didn't 'match' resumes, they used the same ones with just the names changed.

Well-known racist Tareeq Nashid (he of the swastika symbol for the system to publish any random accusation against white people) naturally pretended that the absence of black privilege is white supremacy.

I wandered from The Guardian's rather banal attempt to pretend they weren't entirely in agreement with Hillary about how she isn't responsible for being unelectable (penned by someone trying to act like they weren't agreeing with her, and doing a bad job of it), and found this prize:

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/sep/28/theresa-may-capitalism-jeremy-corbyn-conference

They seem magnificently out of touch with the political situation in the UK at the moment:  Corbyn is a communist, his senoir people are communists, he's stacked the Labour Party with his sycophants, and the only reason he isn't completely tanking in the polls is because May is almost as out to lunch as he is.  In fact, the only difference of principle between them appears to be that May doesn't appear to believe political violence is a valid tactic.

Guy by the twitter handle @izs has created a program to allow him to block anyone who disagrees with him. Which, according to this screencap (Original) (Mirror) amounts to over 376k people.

And gog, he's so openly proud of himself for building an echo chamber.

Surprisingly, he doesn't seem to have blocked everyone who's pointing out that he's a nutter or those who point out he clearly has no confidence in any of his opinions.

I think he's going to be quite surprised when Twitter shuts down because it cannot make money.

Another shooting another article complaining how "too easy" it is to acquire a gun:

So many problems, the biggest one overall is that overlooks cost.

I wish it were this easy.

As it is, I can't get a "fire-ready" Brown Bess: it's too bloody expensive! ($650)
