People Are Calling For A Total Ban On Cotton Because — You Guessed It — Racism

By Jenna Green | 18 Sep 2017

A woman in Texas berated Hobby Lobby last week for selling cotton as a decorative home accessory.

Daniell Rider posted her complaint to the craft store’s Facebook page:

There is nothing decorative about raw cotton. A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves. A little sensitivity goes a long way. Please remove this decor.

Daniell Rider, then received backlash for her sensitivity and responded to her critics:

All those who are offended by cotton being a decoration need to quit buying any product made of cotton!

Below is my response to this race-baiter  ~Angel

The following is a short list of products that are made with cotton or cotton/synthetic fabric blends:

  • T-Shirts
  • Sweatshirts, Sweatpants, and Hoodies (I suppose one could always go with fleece)
  • Bandanas (Antifa loons are gonna have to find something else to cover their cowardly faces with)
  • Denim (I am picturing protesters wearing polyester pants LOL)
  • Corduroy
  • Terrycloth (Towels, bath robes)
  • Sheets and Pillowcases (Most use cotton or cotton blend)
  • Canvas (Some is made using *gasp* cotton, some using linen)
  • Flannel (Some flannel is made using wool or synthetic fiber but a lot is made using cotton)
  • Underwear (For those of you who like the saggy pants look this includes boxer shorts)
  • Coffee filters
  • Fishing nets
  • Books
  • Tampons and Sanitary Pads (I suppose women can start using menstrual cups)
  • Bandaids and Gauze
  • Elastic bandages
  • Disposable diapers
  • Cloth diapers
  • Socks
  • Cotton seeds are delinted by a similar process to ginning. Some linter is used to make candle wicks, string, cotton balls, cotton batting, paper, and cellulose products such as rayon, plastics, photographic film, and cellophane.
  • Cottonseed oil is used in some margarines, salad dressings, cosmetics, soap, candles, water proofing agents
  • Yarn
  • Q-tips and Cotton Balls
  • Tires (Use of cotton in tires is limited – used mostly as a processing aid now)

Did you know that cotton remained a key crop in the Southern economy after emancipation and the end of the Civil War in 1865. Across the South, sharecropping evolved, in which landless black and white farmers worked land owned by others in return for a share of the profits. Some farmers rented the land and bore the production costs themselves.

And did you know that China and India are the two biggest cotton producers in the world? Also on the list: United States, Pakistan, Turkey, Australia, and Mexico.

And did you also know that slavery – yes slavery – is alive and well in the Middle East? Are you offended by THAT?

Teens’ brazen attack on officers caught on bodycam ‘could have been the next Ferguson,’ police chief says

The Blaze

cops-attacked-620x350

It started with a 911 call after midnight about a reported reckless driver spinning tires, losing control, slamming into a tree and a parked vehicle, and then taking off.

Police in Port Barre, Louisiana, soon found the vehicle at a nearby residence, KATC-TV reported, but those inside apparently weren’t very cooperative.

Lybeth Hardy and her 15-year-old son cursed at the cops, refused to answer questions, wouldn’t let them question the vehicle’s owner — Hardy’s husband — because they said he was sleeping and told them to get off their property, police told KATC.

Last Friday’s confrontation — which the town’s police chief said could have become the next Ferguson — escalated from there. And it was all captured on police bodycam.

As Hardy’s son continued cursing and threatening officers, police said about a dozen neighborhood people gathered and began approaching the officers in a threatening manner.

How The Transgender Pronoun Mandate Makes Teaching More Dangerous

From The Federalist
By M.G. Oprea | May 19, 2016

For a teacher, every day is a day you could lose your job because you said the wrong thing accidentally. The new federal transgender ‘guidelines’ make that worse.

trans
 
Among the Obama’s administration’s guidelines released last week for how to treat transgender students, teachers and staff are instructed to refer to each boy or girl as “he” or “she” depending on the child’s gender identity, not his or her biology. Not to be outdone, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is taking it one step further, pledging to fine businesses that don’t use a person’s preferred pronoun.

This effort to control the way we use language is central to the task of shifting how we think about transgenderism and forcing the acceptance of what some think is a mental disorder, not a true reality. But it also throws new obstacles into the path of teachers, who already have to navigate around accusations of political incorrectness and micro-aggressions.

According to the administration’s guidelines, schools aren’t allowed to require students to undergo a medical diagnosis, receive medical treatment, or produce a birth certificate before acquiescing to a student’s request (or the parents’ request on the child’s behalf) that they be referred to by a given pronoun (he or she, for example).

What A Social Mess

So, what would be required? It’s not clear if students would have to go through some bureaucratic process to request the change, or whether that would be considered a violation of their civil rights. Perhaps students simply have to tell their teacher what pronoun to use, but again this seems like it could be “triggering” for the student. Or maybe the teacher is just supposed to figure it out. But this too is fraught with problems. How does a teacher determine how a 5-, 10-, or 15-year-old gender-identifies?

‘Selfless’ Ebola Nurse Kaci is actually utterly selfish. Three weeks in quarantine won’t kill her – and it might just save someone’s life

From Daily Mail
By Piers Morgan for MailOnline | Published: 10:23 EST, 29 October 2014 | Updated: 20:31 EST, 29 October 2014

It’s not hard to take sides in the Battle of Ebola Quarantine.

In the blue corner, weighing in at over 300 pounds, is big, nasty bullyboy Governor from New Jersey, Chris Chriiiisssstttiieeee.

In the red corner, weighing in at less than 150 pounds, is kind, caring, gentle, heroine nurse Kaci Hickox.

At this point the fight would be stopped, right?

Kaci Hickox has made herself a media sensation trying to fight against her bola quarantine. But Christie is the real hero, doing what any sane person would have when presented with a nurse with Hickox’s background who had a fever upon landing from America
