    NPR is mad that not enough purveyors of a 1970s nostalgia musical style called hip hop won Grammy Awards last night: Do you realize how racist it is that Jay-Z has only been nominated for 74 Grammys and won but 21 times? Seventy-four Grammy nominations is no more than Sir George Solti had and four...
  • Steve – you seem to be having selective memory on this one. My recollection was the Grammy awards were always second string and the top acts would not attend as they were too busy touring / living like rock stars. Second tier performers like Quincy Jones and Stevie Wonder were always available and would always show up, therefore they ended up getting the bulk of the nominations hence awards.

    So your complaining about the awards is off base.

    The Grammys were always a joke. They used to give them to the kinds of acts that middle-aged people who were desperately trying to be cool thought young people should like.

    When our sons were younger we would take them into Chicago to work as volunteers serving meals to the "homeless and poor" on holidays. Pacific Garden Mission and the Chicago Christian Industrial League were a couple of places where we helped. We wanted them to see that not everyone lived like they did. Not that we were wealthy or anything but we had/have a fairly comfortable standard of living. We wanted them to appreciate the many blessings they sometimes took for granted.

    Once during the drive home our youngest son asked, "I thought those people were poor. How come almost all of them had cell phones?" We tried to explain that poor in the US was a lot different from poor in the rest of the world and that not all of the people who were served were really indigent, many of them just came for a free meal.

    After this son graduated high school and was having trouble deciding on next steps, we invited him to become independent. He and some friends got an apartment in the city and he got a job at Whole Foods in the South Loop. He would tell us about the large number of folks who shopped at this store with their SNAP Link cards. And he would refer to his soup kitchen experiences and "poor" people with cell phones.

    Where I am from the social agencies provide the cell phones as a method of keeping track of them.

  • From Newsweek: One reason fans aren't bothering to show up on time for games is that the NFL's offensive execution has appeared to be more inept this year: offensive production is down.

    1. Africa has explosive birth rates. They will immigrate here

    2. People of Color (not just Blacks) support the kneelers and decry white racism

    3. whites are dwindling

    4. white girls are giving birth to Children of Color

    I'm looking to the future when whites will have no power and People of Color will have all the wealth and influence

    You are stuck in the past

    “Africa has explosive birth rates. They will immigrate here and support DC United.”

    Fixed it for you.

    The NFL will be fine. Most young people (who are People of Color by the way) support the NFL. These are the future viewers and consumers

    This is just another example of the dying rages of the old white majority males who are not going to be the future and whose daughters are going to give birth to Children of Color

    I hope the Black players give the middle finger to racist white viewers and continue to kneel

    You are funny. The only support for NFL is black american descendants of slaves and their white trash oppressors.

    Black Africans, all brown people and upper middle class whites are soccer or baseball. You must not know many people of colour.

    The NFL has several African players from Nigeria & Ghana. In fact there was a big write up early in the season about the Nigerian & Nigerian American players in the league and how the coaches like their worth ethic & discipline.

    Haitian players have been a big force in South Florida football for years now.

  • In the fourth game of the National League championship series to determine who goes to the World Series, the Chicago Cubs survived a threat of elimination by beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 on 3 solo homers to 2 solo homers.

    OT: Siemens just announced the finalists for its highly prestigious science contest for high school students. Out of the 11 here on Long Island the breakdown is four East Asian males, four South Asian males, one East Asian female, one South Asian (maybe Middle Eastern) female, one white female.

    Kids science projects are meaningless – more an indicator or the parents resources and interests.

    New trend? Seems like the same old thing packaged in new language. Same thing as when we were all given Myers-Briggs tests in the 80s and told that the real diversity was between ISTJs and ENFPs, not genders or races. Same old excuses for keeping the Old Boy network going.

    Many minority candidates are actually far more flexible than the "standard-issue" average engineering graduate. A minority candidate has often had to overcome discrimination in school, in admissions, in the classroom, and in team projects --and in consequence is far more flexible and adaptable, less brittle, and far more independent. And a different life background can not be compared to the "diversity of thought" possible among individuals sharing the same cultural milieu.

    You need to work with Indian and Chinese engineers more often. They tend to be very rule bound and hierarchical. Particularly funny is an Indian of lower caste managing and Indian of higher caste, often due to age or experience. They hate each other hehehehe.

    The Indians are like the brits. When two of them meet and after one talks they hate each other as the accent determines class and caste and all that other stuff.

Invite NFL players to form a White House Working Group to address equality and urban violence, both police and gang violence. They have knelt down and said they are patriotic. He could ask them to now step up.

    Steve pointed out years ago that Florida confused cause with effect. The artists didn't make Houston rich; energy sector engineers and businessmen did. Rich Houston attracted the artists.

    Agree. Cause and effect and reversible or irreversible processes. I mean art and such make for a nicer place but they don’t mean much in the way of economic development. Funny how Florida always focuses on the arts never sports as everyone knows economics of sport are dodgy at best.

    Scale and diversity are the other two concepts Florida gets wrong. Scale screws up development and cities as the increased specialisation is not great to live around. Yes a neighbourhood pub is great, as maybe are two but who wants to live near a bar strip?

    Diversity is another one – yes some diversity is good but can there be too much? What is needed is diversity of thought and product not necessarily ethnic diversity. For example the above mentioned bar strip will function better with a bunch of different types of bars and restaurants, with different offerings and different price points etc. Guys like Florida associate diversity with variety but this is not always the case as you can get mono though within an ethnic group.

    I'll take a stab at explaining that Canadian mobility map.

    - Alberta shows high economic mobility for the same reason as North Dakota - an ongoing resource extraction boom.

    - Big cities have high mobility because they are big cities, and because of the high concentrations of striving South and East Asian immigrants that Canada gives preference to. Dad and mom worked 16 hours a day at their family's restaurant for peanuts but all three kids are doctors - that sort of thing.

    - The vast swath of low economic mobility across sparsely populated NW Ontario and Northern Manitoba and Saskatchewan is because those areas are primarily First Nations, and they are not doing well. It is similar to the Pine Ridge situation.

    - Rural parts of the Atlantic provinces have low mobility because the fishery collapsed due to overfishing in generations past.

    - Rural southern Quebec does not do well because over the course of two generations they have transformed from a bilingual society to a monolingual one and the English speaking middle class has departed for other parts of Canada

    - I cannot account for why rural B.C. and coastal B.C. do so badly. First Nations?

    - I cannot account for why Southern Saskatchewan does so well.

    “I cannot account for why rural B.C. and coastal B.C. do so badly. First Nations?”

    The terrain is inhospitable for humans and the weather awful. Because of this the First Nations have been banished there.

    “I cannot account for why Southern Saskatchewan does so well.”

    Oil, potash and large scale industrial farming with not many people means high output and not too many to share it with.

    "Banished" is the wrong word, at least for the coast.

    They were there all along. The rainy weather is tedious but the fishing used to be excellent. It's been overfished by now.

    Most of the coast north of Vancouver is uninhabitable. People live only in the Bella Coola area, Prince Rupert and the Queen Charlotte Islands (I think they changed the name of the latter to Haida Gwaii or something).

    Based on excellent salmon fishing, they were immune to famine. And rain beats the bitter cold of the interior. So their descendants still live there (unless they decided to move).

    I agree absolutely. Other commenters have suggested there may have been provocation or even a need for self-defense. If so, either was/is an affirmative defense. The judge in this case sounds biased enough that he might have suppressed such evidence. The MSM fake news would avoid presenting it.

    Even if unprovoked, the offense was comparatively minor, assault with a deadly weapon, Aggravating factors may have been the involvement of children and that appalling designation, "hate crime". Even so, in my neck of the woods such cases seldom result in more than six months behind bars and, more usually, several years on probation with community service, fines, etc,. as garnishes.

    I'll bet the sentence is greatly reduced on appeal; the verdict may even be reversed if provocation or self-defense were factors.

    I see your point. Thanks for the reply.

    As someone who had the misfortune to live in a neighborhood that shifted to majority Negro during my relatively short residence, I suspect there may be a back story here. Negro "parties", even children's birthday parties, have a tendency quickly to get out of hand. Loud, obtrusive, and incredible obnoxious behavior - to levels defying belief among those who have not experienced these events - is the norm. (Anyone not believing me do an internet search on Chuck e Cheese, party and phrases like fighting and riot.)

    I quickly learned that calling the police to restore order was futile. The police had learned that their arrival often escalated rather than reduced the misbehavior. Only when a near riot was occurring or serious crimes, e.g., discharge of firearms, were being committed would the police respond. At that point any hope of a peaceful evening/early morning was gone forever.

    When I first heard of this incident my immediate reaction was to wonder whether the involved non-Negroes had not been provoked beyond measure by continuous obnoxious behavior from Negro neighbors. Needless to say this is a factor that SJW fake news MSM would not report and that would be an embarrassment for the impotent law enforcement, prosecutorial, and court systems to even consider

    You could be right. But if it was not provoked as you say then what they did was totally uncalled for. At the same time the disparity in sentencing as pointed out is glaring. The whole thing is sad.

    Interesting to note the harsh sentences given these two and the slaps on the wrists given the Antifas who were planning on bringing acid to the Deplorable. As usual, there is not downside to being a violent leftist. But, if the other side gets out of line at all the full weight of the law will come down on them. Same with all the rioters in Berkeley, Ferguson, Baltimore, etc. etc.

    “The other side” should find a more constructive way to get “out of line” than bothering innocent people celebrating a birthday party like these did. Just bad.

    I completely agree that left wing thugs should get more than they often do, but that is a non sequitur as far as this incident goes.

    June 16, 2016 Supreme Court Ruling: Police Have No Duty to Protect the General Public

    However, did you know that the government, and specifically law enforcement, does not have any duty to protect the general public? Based on the headline and this information, you might assume this is a new, landmark decision. However, it has long been the court’s stance that, essentially, the American people are responsible for taking case of their own personal safety.
