Why is she busy with nonsense about what word or words President Trump said instead of using her influence, name and popularity to actually help needy black people? There are problems aplenty in the black neighborhoods that Omerosa could help with. Why isn’t she stepping up? 

She needs to talk to Kanye West, … to Oprah, to the kneeling NFL players and start to solve real problems instead of nonsensically showboating about the president. 

The FBI released its official crime tally for 2016 on Monday. Nearly 900 additional black people were killed in 2016 compared with 2015, bringing the black homicide victim total to 7,881. Those 7,881 “black bodies,” in the parlance of Ta-Nehisi Coates, are 1,305 more than the number of white victims (which in this case includes most Hispanics) for the same period, though blacks are only 13 percent of the nation’s population.
The increase in black homicides last year comes on top of a previous 900-victim increase between 2014 and 2015.

Who is killing these black victims? Not whites, and not the police, but other blacks. Where is Omerosa?

 In 2015, a police officer was 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male was to be killed by a police officer.

Black males have made up 42 percent of all cop-killers over the last decade, though they are only 6 percent of the population. That 18.5 ratio undoubtedly worsened in 2016, in light of the 53 percent increase in gun murders of officers — committed vastly and disproportionately by black males. None of those unfortunate homicides were caused by president Trump. None were caused by the “N Word”.

Have you noticed the large percentage of people who marry people with the same color skin? Notice also the color of the skin of babies and compare that with the skin colors of their parents. Why is skin color inherited? 

 “There are, after all, in this world, some people who are naturally aggressive and violent,” Bannon wrote, evoking one of scientific racism’s ugliest contentions: -that black people are more genetically predisposed to violence than others. In the book: “Why Race Matters” by Michael Levin it is revealed that in Washington, DC 85% of the black males will be arrested at least once in their lives. See page 290, 1st paragraph, last phrase to make sure it’s an accurate quote. But is it an accurate statistic? Because if it is there’s a set of serious problems associated with black people, at least in the Washington D.C. area. 

Not to mention the hideous negative reception given Professor Charles Murray, the surviving author of “The Bell Curve” because of the information in it on race. It claims that based on the results of Intelligence tests and head sizes that Orientals are the smartest race. Can that possibly be true? the Bell Curve argued that poor people, and particularly poor black people, were inherently less intelligent than white or Asian people. When it was first published in 1994, it became a New York Times bestseller, but over the next few years it was attacked more than it was praised. It continues to be a best seller.   

Another one of the people behind the revival of race science was, not long ago, a mainstream figure. In 2014, Nicholas Wade, a former New York Times science correspondent, wrote what must rank as the most toxic book on race science to appear in the last 20 years. In “A Troublesome Inheritance”, he repeated three race-science shibboleths: that the notion of “race” corresponds to profound biological differences among groups of humans; that human brains evolved differently from race to race; and that this is supported by different racial averages in IQ scores.

In 2005, Steven Pinker, one of the world’s most prominent evolutionary psychologists, began promoting the view that Ashkenazi Jews are innately particularly intelligent – first in a lecture to a Jewish studies institute, then in a lengthy article in the liberal American magazine The New Republic the following year. This claim has long been the smiling face of race science; if it is true that Jews are naturally more intelligent, then it’s only logical to say that others are naturally less so.

The background to Pinker’s essay was a 2005 paper entitled “Natural history of Ashkenazi intelligence”, written by a trio of anthropologists at the University of Utah. In their 2005 paper, the anthropologists argued that high IQ scores among Ashkenazi Jews indicated that they evolved to be smarter than anyone else (including other groups of Jews).

This evolutionary development supposedly took root between 800 and 1650 AD, when Ashkenazis, who primarily lived in Europe, were pushed by antisemitism into money-lending, which was stigmatised among Christians. This rapid evolution was possible, the paper argued, in part because the practice of not marrying outside the Jewish community meant a “very low inward gene flow”. This was also a factor behind the disproportionate prevalence in Ashkenazi Jews of genetic diseases such as Tay-Sachs and Gaucher’s, which the researchers claimed were a byproduct of natural selection for higher intelligence; those carrying the gene variants, or alleles, for these diseases were said to be smarter than the rest.

Pinker followed this logic in his New Republic article, and elsewhere described the Ashkenazi paper as “thorough and well-argued”. He went on to castigate those who doubted the scientific value of talking about genetic differences between races, and claimed that “personality traits are measurable, heritable within a group and slightly different, on average, between groups”.

In subsequent years, Nicholas Wade, Charles Murray, Richard Lynn, the increasingly popular Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson and others have all piled in on the Jewish intelligence thesis, using it as ballast for their views that different population groups inherit different mental capacities. Another member of this chorus is the journalist Andrew Sullivan, who was one of the loudest cheerleaders for The Bell Curve in 1994, featuring it prominently in The New Republic, which he edited at the time. He returned to the fray in 2011, using his popular blog, The Dish, to promote the view that population groups had different innate potentials when it came to intelligence.

Words are important for many, many and varied reasons including proving people guilty of being a racist when they use a forbidden word like the “N Word”. But is the use of a word important especially compared to actions?
