In a domain where NU Sin' or lynching was a common process against perceived losers ... would fight or flight portion of PTSD overcome the state of wellness?

May be a righteous expletive innate as implicit query! Exclude that!

Is PTSD a sense of sympathetic erasure ... neuronic disturbance?

Thus blown ... one has to be beat down to a negative dimension compared to balanced norms ... before popping up from the depressed pit as illustrated in the Greek γ (gamma) or Roman þ (thorn) a prick of a rous all, but singularly (sol) deficient! In a literal sense it may be different as a divisive satyr! Thus asinine feedback as para sympathetic process as driven point (prial power of Ide).

In institutional fixation ... nothing can process as the impression is piously stoic! Take the impression from the wall of time (history) and process it in a gas ...
There’s people power in the air. Maybe less busi-ness, more thinking going on these days.

There was a march here on Saturday, that I missed.

The city says they are going to review the ethnic and gender composition of the police. To be totally honest, every single cop I have ever seen here is a white man, or very few white women. There may be non white cops here but I have never seen any. A bit more diverse in Vancouver. Though, I can understand why a minority who has been mistreated by the cops might not want to join their organization. There are some who try to “be the change” in organizations, and end up being tokens. Pardon the pun, it wasn’t deliberate.

I've been listening to Gil Scott Heron quite a bit. Really listening. Not from the perspective that he was some kind of cool counter-culture half secret from a time gone by when injustice was being (to an extent) overcome - but like it's right now. And it is. It's almost exactly like 30, 40, 50 years ago. Except the neoliberal economic experiment was just really getting revved up then - and people weren't living through a pandemic (and dying disproportionately among communities of colour; not from the viral illness itself - but because racism has always been pandemic) that was about to reshape society and the economy. We are really, quite literally, at a crossroads right now.

This is something. Changes are happening really fast. I generally support unions but I see the unhealthy paradox in having unions that fight to keep murderous and/ or corrupt cops on the job. When the cops are basically militarized, unions that perpetuate, and hence, systematize police violence, are fascistic.

I wonder if covid has taught people that change can happen faster than we’ve been typically used to - so why waste time now?

Also, the original BLM isn't that far in the past and I think that awareness set the stage for this to some degree. IOW, between covid and where we are in history generally, maybe the time was ripe. I'm still wondering how much real change we'll see. I mean, legislation to rein in police is a start, but it doesn't mean there won't be bigots in uniform, just limit the damage they do and make it easier to get rid of them. Real change isn't going to happen overnight, even if things like legislation will help move things forward.

BLM is fairly new, but black rights protestors are not. They’re an evolution of the organizations before them.

I think anyone who becomes a cop should have a psych evaluation and a psychopathy test (and not hired if they fail the latter...police forces, positions of authority in general, are no place for psychopaths. (Which reminds me of the band Rage Against the Machine - they’re trending right now. Songs written around the time of Rodney King.)

I just watched an interesting bit of discussion (American perspective) suggesting defunding police - money could be used for covid recovery - to stabilize the huge incoming economic hit about to happen once emergency unemployment cheques and eviction freezes stop, and so many jobs have been lost.

Is that your idea to redistribute the funds for COVID recovery or the position taken in the piece? That is not at all the focus of discussions I have heard here in the Toronto area re defunding police.

It was on an American vlog. I mean - recovery as in building up social resources for people extra affected by covid, or communities at risk. So it's part of the bigger defunding picture - reallocating to health and social services.

Calls by black communities in the US for defunding police and government programs linked to privilege - and put back into the health and social programs have been made for decades. So it was part of a broader discussion on where priorities for funds need to go.

Gil Scott Heron wrote a spoken word song about a sick girl who'd been bitten by a rat, but couldn't afford a doctor - family can't afford rent for a rat infested apartment - - while white people were spending enormous amounts of money to fly to the moon. He also spoke out about trigger happy cops. For example. These issues are not new. None of this is new.

Can christian stoics losing their openness to the hated ... become hateful? So the incarnation of negative emotions ... in the anarchy of emotions that displace demiurge to process the thoughts through.

Yet some sectors remain closed to such data, information and intelligence to prey over ... as the stuff is the pits as in the "V" einers ... hubris vs nemesis!

It is suggested that the eternal power is open on both ND's ... heart and SOL! Semi urges ...

Never say anything that appears reasonable to a determinant that already believe they know the hole thing ... when they are scattered and broken ... assis! The uncertainty grows as indeterminate (formless void)?

Did Darwin Promote Racism?
The human heart is a factory for all kinds of evil—including the evil of racism (see Jeremiah 17:9 and Matthew 15:18–19). Still, while Darwin certainly didn’t invent racism, his ideology of evolution has fostered it. Consider the case of Ota Benga—a pygmy from Central Africa, who in 1906 was caged in the Bronx Zoo with an orangutan. Remember the Jews in the gas chambers devised by Hitler to advance the Aryan “master race.” Reflect on the Australian aborigines hunted down in the 1800s by evolutionists in search of the “missing link.”

Descent of Man
The full title of Darwin’s most famous work included some stark words: On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. Darwin envisioned the spontaneous formation of simple life evolving into higher forms through the pitiless forces of nature selecting the fittest.

Darwin demonstrated how he believed evolution shaped man in his subsequent book The Descent of Man. In it, he theorized that man, having evolved from apes, had continued evolving as various races, with some races more developed than others. Darwin classified his own white race as more advanced than those “lower organisms” such as pygmies, and he called different people groups “savage,” “low,” and “degraded.”

Darwin wasn’t the first to propose biological arguments for racism, but his works fueled the most ugly and deadly racism. Even evolutionist Stephen Jay Gould wrote, “Biological arguments for racism may have been common before 1859, but they increased by orders of magnitude following the acceptance of evolutionary theory” (Ontogeny and Phylogeny, 1977).


Skin Deep

Darwin’s error was later exposed through the field of genetics. What Darwin didn’t know was that people have the same brown-colored skin pigment called melanin. A person’s genetic makeup determines his potential to produce a certain level of melanin. That’s why we see a range of skin shades in people from light to middle brown to dark. Our differences are only skin deep.

Through an understanding of biblical history and genetics, we see that variations in human skin pigmentation are the result of reshuffling the genetic potential of Adam and Eve and later the eight people aboard the Ark. After the scattering at the Tower of Babel, groups of people became more isolated, allowing for concentration of certain variations within those groups. Thus the development of lighter or darker skin in certain demographic groups has nothing to do with molecules-to-man evolution, but only the decreased genetic potential for variation in isolated populations.

One Race—the Human Race
Darwin was wrong. Humans are not split into various races at higher and lower stages of evolution. The Bible makes it clear that God specially created mankind in His image. We are all descendants of Adam, “the first man” (1 Corinthians 15:45), and Eve, “the mother of all living” (Genesis 3:20). So only one race exists—the human race.

God, who made the world … has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord … Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead. (Acts 17:24, 26–27, 30–31)
No matter what your skin color or ethnic background, your critical need is the same as every other person’s: just like Adam, you have rebelled against your holy Creator and must appear before Him one day.

Thankfully, God will judge the world by the Lord Jesus who died on the Cross as the perfect substitute for sinners who turn to Him in repentance and faith. Jesus Christ’s Resurrection was God’s stamp of approval on His Son’s teachings and sacrificial death for our sin. Knowing this, we echo the words of Revelation 5:9, “For You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation.”

my view
I say ----We need to start believing and seeing the truth----- instead of believing and being blinded by the lies of Darwin's and others who make up their own man made theories -----of man coming from apes etc ---and believing some people become better than others as they evolve -----what rubbish ----Satan's work I say ----Racism will remain in this world until we humans come to our senses and understand where the origin of racism started and want to change the way we think ---relying on what God says not man ----
