Smollett case highlights hate crime hoaxes
Many individuals with minority status have developed the bad habit of claiming racial bias or discrimination every time something doesn't go their way. Most claims of hate crimes, racial bias and discrimination are fake and that's becoming more and more obvious with every passing day.

Tucker: Hate crime hoaxes are real and do damage to society
Hate crime hoaxes are extremely common. A long list of such cases exists. It is a certainty that many alleged hate crimes that are believed to be true were actually also hoaxes. It's unfortunate that so many people are eager to believe that hate crimes are much more prevalent than is actually the case.

Network Meeting - SNL
The Jussie Smollett case is the perfect example of how false claims of racism were at one time believed, but are now treated with appropriate skepticism. It's like the fable of the boy who cried wolf. People just stop believing you after awhile!

Parents Outraged After Photo Of Teachers Holding Noose Emerges
This is a big nothing burger. In order to see racist intent that intent must be read into the image. The image in and of itself provides no indication of racist intent. The viewer of the image has no legitimate reason to reach any conclusion based on the image. Only a pathetically stupid person would conclude anything negative based on the image alone.

ergot: So apparently an ambiguous picture is now all it takes for people to be put on leave and to potentially lose their jobs. This is sooooooo stupid! Who knows what they were thinking and unless they make an explicitly racist statement, no offense should be taken. This outrage culture we are living in needs to stop!

Stupid people jump to stupid conclusions. For someone to think they know the intent of the ladies in the photo just by looking at the photo is absurd, but we live in a world now where absurdly stupid conclusions are taken seriously and where outrage for the sake of outrage is the new norm.

Voice sexism - it's a thing: UNESCO claims Siri & Alexa promote gender stereotypes
Sometimes it's just plain amazing the lengths people will go to in order to dredge up some insignificant nothing that they can hold up and call sexism as if it were some kind of prize. I think it's called virtue signalling and some people seem to have an obsessive need for the approval of others when it comes to this sort of thing.

Cops disciplined for 1000s of racist FB posts
The problem is that the examples used in this video, with a possible example of one or two, are totally not racist! That sort of proves one of the implications of this thread: That hypersensitivity is more of a problem than actual racism. For example, claiming that white privilege is a myth is clearly not racist. Also asking "When is white history month?" is also obviously not racist. On top of that the "protester plow" post is just funny and has nothing to do with race. We can only assume that this news clip included only the MOST DISTURBING of the supposedly thousands of disturbing posts discovered by the pseudo journalists who compiled this list. If that's the case, then they proved that racism is not an issue, but that hypersensitivity is rampant!
