    Well, that was good for a laugh.

    Just because one has a patent, doesn't mean they invented it.

    The first one, Mark Dean, an IBM affirmative-action hire "was part of the team that developed the interior architecture [ISA Bus]" That says everything and nothing at the same time. What was his role? A team of how many? If you're 1 of 100, your role is relatively small. Some people here might not know what ISA is, but developing ISA, is not the same as "Inventing the PC".

    It must be over now.

    ADL Adds ‘We Wuz Kangz’ to ‘Hate Slogan’ List

    According to the ADL website:

    “We Wuz Kangs” is a racist catchphrase and collection of memes directed at African-Americans and other people of sub-Saharan African descent. Originating in 2015 and popularized by the website 4chan, the phrase is a racist shorthand reference to discredited but popular Afrocentric theories that claimed sub-Saharan Africans were descended from ancient Egyptians.

    The phrase and meme are intended to mock the Afrocentric theories and, by extension, anyone who might believe in them. Users employ phrases such as “We Wuz Kangs,” “We Wuz Kings,” and “Kings N Shiet,” featuring mock black American dialect that is intended to portray blacks as ignorant and a contrast to the ostensibly more civilized ancient Egyptians. Meme versions of the phrase similarly tend to feature images with racist stereotypes of black people, often contrasted with images of Egyptian pharaohs. The overall intent is to portray blacks as crude, ignorant and uncivilized.

    I mean what is ADL’s viewpoint on these people. Just leaving whites who ridicule the movement with ‘we wuz Kanye (autocorrect for kangs)’, and calling them racist, would be a racist move on part of ADL, no?

    The ADL loves "these people" as long as they can make money on a "cause".

    And can you blame victims of propaganda? It takes a lot to break through the bullshit barrier.

    Terry Gilliam called out Jewywood for their baloney. He must have some ironclad royalties.

    Terry Gilliam Absolutely Loathes Black Panther: 'It's Utter Bullsh-t'

    "I hated Black Panther," Terry Gilliam, whose writing credits include Brazil and Monty Python and the Holy Grail, told IndieWire. "It makes me crazy. It gives young black kids the idea that this is something to believe in. Bullshit. It’s utter bullshit. I think the people who made it have never been to Africa. They went and got some stylist for some African pattern fabrics and things. But I just I hated that movie, partly because the media were going on about the importance of bullshit."

    Someone quick call the ADL and let them know that stating that the notion of ancient african kings is a discredited theory makes them the very racist bigots they purport to be combating! Were they kings ("kangz") or weren't they? The blacks certainly believe they were, so how can you criticize those who say they weren't as using "racist shorthand" when you yourselves agree that they're correct?
