That was the easiest way to give $10 each to Race Forward, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and The Bail Project.
Thanks Humble

Speaking of COVID-19 -- the US genius leader has figured out the solution. If you just don't test, then you will have no cases. Easy.
That makes his bleach moment seem like a career high point.

Even though it's not worth it as you have nothing to do with the United State.
And considering that when you where with a group of friends or co-workers (I can't remember which) and claimed they knew that you were not racist but you were shocked when you said something racist and your friends or co-workers got upset.
I'm guessing you probably still don't get that when you say racist things and then add "but guyz, you know I'm not racist", that's on you.

It's obvious that you need to be spoon fed, so open wide.

The following interview (also transcribed in the link) explains how Blacks (Not Asian's) were excluded from their slice of the American pie.

You won't read the book but the 35 minute interview cover a large portion of the wealth differences and how government mandated housing segregation created the gap we have today and why its legacy continues to do so.
A 'Forgotten History' Of How The U.S. Government Segregated America

I've snipped what I found covers where you are confused on the wealth issue
in 1968 we passed the Fair Housing Act that said, in effect, "OK, African-Americans, you're now free to buy homes in Daly City or Levittown" ...
but it's an empty promise because those homes are no longer affordable to the families that could've afforded them when whites were buying into those suburbs and gaining the equity and the wealth that followed from that.

The white families sent their children to college with their home equities; they were able to take care of their parents in old age and not depend on their children. They're able to bequeath wealth to their children. None of those advantages accrued to African-Americans, who for the most part were prohibited from buying homes in those suburbs.
/snip

Also read every link in my here here and here post that you partially quoted for further enlightenment.
It was started and mandated by the biggest institution in the USA. That is the quintessential definition of institutional racism.
Redeye you made a bull's eye. Red-Lining and preventing blacks from purchasing homes in white suburbia has had everlasting consequences.

What a smart move by tender. I can't believe they were stupid enough to ban people in the first place. Normal people don't want to hang around or date racist scumbags.

The missing six weeks: how Xxxxx failed the biggest test of his life
"The US response will be studied for generations as a textbook example of a disastrous, failed effort,” Ron Klain, who spearheaded the fight against Ebola in 2014, told a Georgetown university panel recently. “What’s happened in Washington has been a fiasco of incredible proportions.”


The incredible thing? His approval ratings are going up.
dude, he's a war hoax time dotus
They're obviously not polling family members of Covid19 victims, governor's he ignores or hospital personnel.
There's more than just getting thumbs up from funeral home directors.

Once again, Cutter doesn't know how numbers work. Someone please quote this - the coward has me blocked because I routinely point out how flawed his logic is.

His own article says:
In the winter seasons from 2013/14 to 2016/17, an estimated average of 5,290,000 ILI cases occurred in Italy, corresponding to an incidence of 9%

Cutter, Italy has about 60M people. That 9% is what percentage of the population gets the flu, not dies from it.

Furthermore, your next line says:

More than 68,000 deaths attributable to flu epidemics were estimated in the study period.

Let's do some simple math. What percentage of (5,290,000*4) is 68,000? Hint: it isn't 9%.

You're whining about who is lying and making false claims, when you're not even capable of reading what you're citing, nor of basic math. You're also making the same mistake other people convinced this is all normal keep making - you're looking at how many people died vs infected, rather than died vs recovered, since many people in those infected numbers will still die!

Right now, in NYC, we're averaging about 1 death every 15 minutes. But sure, it's just like the flu.

Stick to what you know. We don't know what that is, yet, but we're certain it isn't anything you're demonstrating here.

This HL VR game is 99% guaranteed to be a Vive/Index exclusive OR it will be shittified for other VR sets to the point that only Vive/Index are going to be a viable option to play this shit on.

It's the Index controllers, man, the best motion controllers released to date. They offer a new depth in input that will mind blow people today...

The controllers will completely change in-game problem solving from "Press A" to interact, to "Reach down and move a piece of metal sheeting, discover an object you've been searching for. Pick it up and rotate in your hands to find the keyhole, use the fragile key in your other hand, apply gentle pressure to unlock it by loosening your grip of the controller, observing the rumble feedback as your try to turn the key, maybe a jiggle, so you don't break the key inside the hole..... you hear a headcrab squawk behind you! Quick!!!... switch to your crowbar and smack it out of the air as it jumps to mount your face!!!"

Just wait, gentlemen, for 11pm PST.
