    Stanford Prison Experiment

    I think I've had an epiphany of sorts. Do you remember the Stanford Prison Experiment, where college students were placed in a simulated prison environment, with some students as guards and others as prisoners? Basically, the results got ugly quick: The guards became abusive and the prisoners became traumatized.

    I've realized this is a good metaphor for what the Democrats are doing with our race relations, especially CRT theory. They are telling white people they are oppressors and POC that they are victims. Based on the results of the experiment, do you think anything good can come out of this race baiting? Clearly it is just going to create more division.

    CRT is an industry. Typically the firms will charge you $6-700 an hour for their expertise.
    Companies feel obliged to bring them in and use a well know source for credibility.

    I saw on Fox the other day diversity and inclusion officers can bring in six figure salaries. And the government pressures all the corporations to have them. A nice scam job if you're willing to sell out to get it.

    While we are not being trapped in a University Classroom or WOKE workplace like an actual Prison the situation is similar. You can't function very well without an education and a decent paying professional job so your stuck in this environment where you must be on your guard at all times. And all it takes is a few "empowered" trouble makers to make everybody miserable.

    I know because having lived in SoCal for so long I have met and worked with some very nice Gay people, minorities, ect....and in a few instances some real $#@!s!

    And with the direction this is going even the boss much higher up the food chain is going to be intimidated and resist going against any corporate "Diversity and Inclusion" policy along with the threat of lawsuits.

    It is becoming an industry just like the people who work with the homeless population that keeps on growing instead of being solved. And every year more Government monies thrown at it. Meanwhile these paid advocates are the ones telling the police to leave the homeless alone no matter what the behavior or local laws broken until serious felonies are involved.

    That’s a stretch. Conservatives aren’t prisoners, and liberals aren’t prison guards.

    The reality is, some people are trying to teach an unvarnished history of America’s relationship with race and how it still has ramifications today. It’s not Democrats that are trying to create legislation to prevent that. Democrats aren’t banning books and fighting to obscure uncomfortable realities.

    America has a relatively long history of liberals fighting for equality, civil rights, inclusion and tolerance. And an equally long history of conservatives fighting those changes. So nothing in any way like the Stanford prison experiments.

    It’s not race baiting or an attempt to create division. It’s not some grand conspiracy. It’s just an attempt to foster a more tolerant society.

    That isn't the metaphor, the metaphor is that the left is telling white people they are oppressors and POC that they are victims.

    The right does not want to hide the US's racial history, that is a lie and a strawman built by the left. We are against defining people by the color of their skin, and assigning victimhood and guilt accordingly. Teach history, but what we are arguing about is what is emphasized.

    I'm sure many libs think that teaching CRT will foster a more tolerant society. We believe it will create more division and resentment. Besides which, Marxists looking to bring in their socialist revolution want to teach this to undermine our democratic/capitalistic society. Many well meaning libs are being duped by them. Many more malicious libs would support that outcome.

    There was a special on our local homeless shelter. They get funded per person. So they were advertising to attract the homeless traveling I-95 some 75 miles away to come on down to the beach and get treated like a royalty. So they loaded Myrtle Beach with homeless people to net a per person profit for themselves and they were all pulling down 6 figure salaries. They just ran vans and dropped them off at public parks up to 40 miles away in the morning and then picked them up at night.

    They don’t want to hide that history? What, they only want to hide it from children?

    Some truths are uncomfortable. But acknowledging them isn’t a ploy to create division. Nor is it part of some commie plot.

    Stop pretending modern progressives are not todays Bullies hiding behind Government power. I lived through the 60's and 70's and you are not those Civil Liberties anti-big government liberals and this is not your legacy.
