I just read it.
So how much does 2 + 2 = in the non-white world? Good lord.
I hope she has a terrible day tomorrow. Just a really terrible day.

Everyone knows that 2 + 2 = 5: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2_%2B_2_%3D_5.

But I'm surprised that Wikipedia hasn't taken that article down as "white privilege", as it's not nearly positive enough about 2 + 2 = 5.

and again, my suspicions that the left read Orwell as a manual not a warning are supported...
“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”

Belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort, or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence

I guess we white supremacist patriarchs aren't what we used to be letting stuff like this go on.
