Those of you who are still trying to make Ms. Hannah-Jones out to be a victim (and the rest of us racists) need to finally shut up. The Orange Beast was thought to have outdone herself by claiming we fought The American Revolution to preserve slavery. But get a load of THIS:
Yeah. Everybody’s dirt poor. Oh, and TRY to complain about the Cuban government while in Cuba. See what happens.
[….] Joining host Ezra Klein – who has taken trips sponsored by Chinese Communist Party-linked group in exchange for “favorable coverage” of the regime – on his podcast “Conversations,” Jones asserts that Cuba should be a role model to America for integrating schools
“Are there candidates right now or even just places that you think have a viable and sufficiently ambitious integration agenda, and if so, what is it,” Klein asks Jones, prompting her to laugh.
After admitting she’s “definitely not an expert on race relations internationally,” she posits that “if you want to see the most equal, multiracial democ… it’s not a democracy – the most equal, multi-racial country in our hemisphere it would be Cuba.”[…]
There it is, folks.
[…] She attributes the alleged absence of inequality to socialism:
Cuba has the least inequality between black and white people of any place really in the hemisphere. I mean the Caribbean – most of the Caribbean it’s hard to count because the white population in a lot of those countries is very, very small, they’re countries run by black folks, but in places that are truly at least biracial countries, Cuba actually has the least inequality, and that’s largely due to socialism, which I’m sure no one wants to hear.
The unearthed podcast follows The National Pulse revealing Jones authoring an op-ed praising Cuba and the role of education as “the cornerstone of the revolution.”[…]
“It manifests in what Cuba has accomplished, through socialism and despite poverty, that the United States hasn’t,” she writes before identifying an advantage of the communist revolution as bringing about the “end of codified racism.”
*I don’t know about y’all, but this is making me all warm, fuzzy, unified, and socially-justified inside. *
Actually, these comments would place her right in the mainstream of the UNC faculty. The people on-campus who are harrassed and intimidated beyond belief are conservatives. Conservative faculty members — the few there are — have to keep their mouths shut to avoid a public lynching. (NEVER forget UNCW’s Mike Adams.) Students who bring conservative speakers to campus often face leftist hecklers and rioters seeking to shut it all down rather than allow others to express their freedom of speech.
Instead of piling one more commie-symp onto the dung-pile in Chapel Hill, try evening things out with some right-leaning (or at least FAIR and sane) professors. Just say NO to indoctrination. Say YES to exposing students to both sides of arguments.
