Open Thread

Lots of things are being proposed in the wake of the mass shootings, the most pernicious being the red flag laws. Imagine an America where liberals get to turn you in to the police with the accusation that you’re insane, and then you have to prove you’re not in order to keep your right to bear arms.

Democrats, sick people that they are, are fundraising off the shootings. Beto has been the most vile in this, directly accusing the President of racism.

The Dayton shooter seems to have been a far-left kook, while the El Paso shooter supposedly had some rightwing leanings. This works out to the MSM covering El Paso while downplaying Dayton.

The people of Hong Kong are rising up against their Communist overlords – but they will not be successful. The Chinese government would like to defuse the situation with little or no bloodshed, if possible, but make no mistake about it: Hong Kong will be brought fully under the heel of Beijing. The people of Hong Kong have no way to resist: they don’t have guns.

Meanwhile, China is developing a plan for a Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere…and like the last one attempted by Japan, they aren’t asking Great East Asia if they want to be part of it.

Leftists forced the New York Times to memory hole a headline about Trump the left didn’t agree with. Paper of record, ya’ll…its just a record of how to surrender to Communist apparatchiks.

    Another example of Democrats detachment from reality:

    Before he killed nine people in a mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio, early Sunday, Connor Betts was deeply involved in the misogynistic, male-dominated “goregrind” or “pornogrind” extreme metal music scene. It has a regional following in the Midwest and is known for sexually violent, death-obsessed lyrics and dehumanizing imagery depicting women.

    They are now worried about violent and dehumanizing song lyrics, yet people like Jay Z are still large democrat donors and friends of the Obama’s. And Jay Z’s music also has a regional following … primarily in large inner cities where violent episodes like El Paso happen every weekend.

    A letter to the editor of our local newspaper this morning cited the fact that, even before the recent Mosque mass shooting New Zealand had 23 times fewer (adjusted for population) gun homicides than the U.S. I just sent the following response:

    I always get a chuckle from letters to the editor in which the writer attempts to make a point by comparing the United States to a country half the size of Chicago. Such was a letter by XXXX on Tuesday, August 6th in which he points out that the United States has 23 times more gun homicides than New Zealand, a “fact” that he attributes to stronger gun laws in New Zealand. But let’s look at some other factors. In addition to the population of the U.S. being nearly 70 times larger than New Zealand (supposedly accounted for in his statistics), gun ownership in the U.S. is 5 times higher than New Zealand (112.6 guns per 100,000 population vs. 22.6/100,000 according to Wikipedia) The cultural differences between New Zealand and the United States are even more stark. The largest city in New Zeland (Auckland) is 1.5 million – about the size of Indianapolis. Teara, the encyclopedia of New Zealand, describes New Zealand’s inner cities like this: “Once the scene of seedy lodging houses and commercial buildings, New Zealand’s inner cities have become cultural hotspots and home to the affluent and urbane.” Would you use those words to describe the inner city in Baltimore or Detroit or Chicago?

    I’m not trying to downplay the tragedy of gun violence, and I’m not naïve enough to think that guns are not a factor in gun homicides, but there are societal and cultural factors that far outweigh the actual tool used to commit the homicide. According to the FBI, more than twice as many homicides are the result of beatings with hands and feet than with so-called assault rifles. If guns were the only means of killing someone then we could solve the problem by eliminating all legally owned guns and collecting the ones used by criminals through attrition. Great Britain essentially tried this and the number of knife homicides increased to the point where knives are now severely restricted in the UK, while violent crime in London exceeds that in New York City.

    One thing that should be noted about gun violence statistics is that most studies are biased and selectively use data from years and periods that yield the desired results. A quick Internet search can yield whatever figures one needs to make whatever argument one wants to make. Case in point: Wikipedia’s comprehensive list of gun homicides by country shows the rate per 100,000 in the U.S. as 4.2 vs. XXXX’s 4.46 and the rate in New Zealand as .9 vs. XXXX’s .187. I’m not vouching for the accuracy of Wikipedia’s data, but using their figures, the U.S. has 5 times (not 23) more gun homicides than New Zealand. Since there are 5 times as many guns in the U.S. per 100,000 than in New Zealand, gun homicides in both countries are the same. See how that works?

      Very well said. You could be the voice of the Right I keep saying we need.

      Actually, many of us could, though probably not as well as you addressed the hysteric who wrote the original letter.

      But, for example, we could and should shut down, immediately and with force, every single use of the invented “white nationalist” calumny. Being white, and/or being a nationalist, have absolutely ZERO relationship to any kind or degree of racism. But we meekly let the phrase continue, unchallenged, uncorrected, building up acceptance as something real.

      We could start by demanding definitions. Just what IS “far right”? We know what “far Left” is—we have a century of examples and as Leftism is a political construct based on a certain structure of government we can see the spectrum of just a little violation of the Constitution (“moderate”) to advocating abandoning it completely for a totalitarian collectivist model (“far Left”). But what, exactly, is “far Right”?

      That is when we get into the manipulations of the language, as any definition of “far Right” has nothing to do with a belief that the United States should be governed according to its Constitution (which is the definition of “the Right”: in American politics) but depends wholly on applying the invented terms and definitions of the Left—“white nationalism” being the most recent, but including all forms of “racist”.

      In other words, defining “the Left” depends on objective analytical political analysis, while “the Right” depends on invented projected attributes and various pejoratives. We never challenge the Left on its defintions, never back them into a corner and make them explain where they came up with them or how they justify them. We just nod meekly and let them proceed with their attacks.

      • Amazona August 6, 2019 / 3:33 pm

        Of course it is hard to challenge and rebut an invented phrase when the President himself uses it. For all the claims that he trolls the Left, he also lets himself be led around by the nose by them every now and than, and adopting their rhetoric is a good example.

        He should have stood up and said “There is no such thing as “white nationalism”. It is a bullshit phrase invented by the Left. Nationalism means simply thinking your own country is a great place to live,and being proud of it, and that has nothing to do with skin color. This is just more divisive game playing by the Left, trying to demonize patriotism and skin color all in one lying, deceptive, invented phrase they have been using constantly. But there is no such thing. There are a very very few white supremacists in this country, so the Left has to try to convince people that there are millions by attaching patriotism, or nationalism, to that vile belief system. We need to be on the lookout for this and other deceptive manipulations of language designed to lead people into false beliefs”.

        But no, we get parroting of the phrase, giving it more credibility.


  3. Amazona August 6, 2019 / 2:37 pm

    The Left succeeds to a great extent by simply controlling the narrative. When it can define terms, even invent terms like “white nationalist” and then successfully insert them into the national consciousness, without any pushback from us, they will continue to gain ground.

    Here is another example: Most young Americans prefer socialism to capitalism, new report finds

    By presenting “socialism” as just another economic model, the Left is able to build support for it among the fiscally illiterate, while avoiding the reality that socialism is a POLITICAL construct, a model for governing a nation, not just a simple realignment of income. They get the WORD accepted, without any kind of accurate description or definition, and then slip in the governing aspect behind the idea that it just means getting stuff for free and making “the rich” pay for it.

    And we meekly let them do it, just as we meekly let them rant about “white nationalism”.

    As a line from the movie “Camelot” (the first one, not the stupid remake) —-It’s not the earth the meek inherit, it’s the dirt”. And the meek acceptance of Leftist manipulation of language will continue to leave us buried.

    Democrats control the language and narrative because they control 90% of the media who are more than willing to promote their agenda. At this point though, is it the media following Democrats or Democrats following the media? They are interchangeable.

    I caught just a little bit of Rush this morning and he nailed it by saying that throughout his entire life he has never seen the Democrats lurch this far left to the point of insanity. He termed it “Group Insanity” and he is right and we should harp on that every single day. Make the Democrats live by what they have been trying to convince Americans of. Make them own their rhetoric which follows.

    1. There is a serial rapist on the Supreme Court
    2. The POTUS is an agent of Russia and works towards Russia’s interests
    3. Russia changed the results of the election
    4. The POTUS is a white supremacist
    5. America is systemically racist
    6. White supremacy is our biggest problem
    7. Men can compete as women in sports
    8. There are more than 2 genders
    9. Illegal immigrants are more American than native born Americans
    10. The world will end in 12 years
    11. Americans are primarily responsible for the negative impacts of climate change

    – We need to ask Kamala Harris what she is doing to remove the serial rapist from the Supreme Court and why she would allow such a man to continue in that position.

    – We need to ask Nancy Pelosi why she refuses to impeach a Russian agent from the Oval office.

    – We need to ask Chuck Schumer why he supports men competing against women in sanctioned sporting events

    – We need to ask every Democrat how they are preparing for the end of the world.

    They are putting this bullshit out there but they are never to held to answer for it. Now is the time.

    They are putting this bullshit out there but they are never to held to answer for it. Now is the time.

    Too true. One at a time, we need to challenge every single lie, and the best way to do that is not to argue with it, but demand that it be defined and supported.

    • Cluster August 6, 2019 / 3:53 pm

      … the best way to do that is not to argue with it, but demand that it be defined and supported.

      Exactly. Accept it as truth and then ask what is being done to resolve it. I think that we should ask Nancy Pelosi why she scheduled a 6 week vacation when she knows that there is a serial rapist on the Supreme Court and a White Supremacist in the Oval House. Does she not care about Americans?

      • Amazona August 6, 2019 / 6:37 pm

        I can’t agree with the “accept it as truth” thing even if the strategy is to then ask what is being done about it. I think we let things go as if they are true and then wonder why people believe them.

        When I say “not to argue with it” I don’t mean agree with it, or let it pass as if you do. I mean instead of taking a defensive posture and saying something is not true, immediately snapping to a very aggressive OFFENSIVE posture and saying “prove it!” Prove it now. Define your terms. What do you meany by “serial rapist”? How can you use that term for someone who has never even been accuses of rape, much less convicted? What do you mean by “white supremacist”? Be specific. Be specific, and then be specific about when Trump ever said anything to indicate that belief.

        Never NEVER let something pass without a challenge. Nancy says there is a serial rapist on the Court? Get in her face and say “Who?” and make her say the name, then ask what she bases her claim on as he was never accused of rape of even one person much less several so where is she getting this crap? Call her out on it, make her say what she is basing her comments on. Ask if being in Congress is a defense against slander and libel. Ask her why anyone should pay the slightest attention to anyone who just tosses out unsubstantiated lies like this. But never NEVER accept it as true. Not to any degree. Ask her who accused him of rape. Hit her with the Constitutional right to due process and demand to know the name of his accuser and details of the legal process necessary—-REQUIRED—for him to have been found guilty. So she doesn’t believe in due process? Then what is she doing in the Congress of the United States? Didn’t she take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution?

        She claims Trump is a white supremacist? Again, get in her face. What did he say? WHAT DID HE SAY ? WHAT. DID. HE. SAY?? And then nail her with the obvious truth that her entire claim is based on the INTERPRETATION of PART of something he said, out of context and wholly dependent on being run through a TDS filter. And come back to how can the country be comfortable with a Speaker of the House who is so dishonest/gullible/confused? Hammer the “dishonest” part—-“any HONEST person would admit that what he really said was…..” Always go back to what her lies tell us about HER, and her credibility and her qualifications to be in the House.

        Do the same thing with all of them. AOC mouths off about concentration camps—hit her with facts. Real concentration camps arrested and detained people not for anything they did but for who they were or what they believed. Real concentration camps abused, tortured and starved prisoners and used them as slave labor. Real concentration camps never let people go free if all they wanted to do is return to their homes. So how can anyone this wrong about so many things be a member of Congress? Don’t we have STANDARDS of basic knowledge and common sense to be a member of Congress? If not, SHOULDN’T we? Don’t just point out that she makes no sense—spell it out.

        Trump supporters claimed they liked him because he was not afraid to fight back. But we seem to be afraid to fight back, ourselves. We can do what Spook did, and write letters to our editors. We can participate in comment sections of some blogs and point out things like this, instead of letting the trolls take over.

    Some of the things the President proposed in his speech to the nation yesterday I agreed with. I especially agreed with the death penalty for murderers, with the execution being carried out quickly. As opposed to a long carried out process that gives the defense time to bury the case under unnecessary legal proceedings, and dig up stuff to prevent Justice from being carried out.

    The red flag laws will never work. If a bill is passed to enact red flag law, the President will lose a lot of his voter base, and a civil war is likely to break out, a very hot civil war. People will not have their second amendment infringed upon. The nation will tire very quickly of being falsely accused of crimes that they have no intention of committing.

    • Amazona August 7, 2019 / 12:07 pm

      Re: the new Colorado red flag law. Several sheriffs have stated they will not respond to red flag calls on people alleged to be dangerous to themselves or others, because of the unconstitutionality of the law The state will be forced to defend lawsuits over the law, and that is before a citizen files a suit after having his guns taken away with no due process.

      But we need to step back and look at what citizens are already tolerating, and what some openly celebrate—that is, the process of identifying a person based on his political affiliation or beliefs or associations and then setting the attack dogs of federal agencies on him to try to find a crime. We have a nation in which there is little outcry at the spectacle of many of our media supporting and advocating this, of members of Congress openly demanding it, without concern that it is an identifying factor of tyranny and abuse of government power.

      The red flag laws are just another incarnation of this approach to the use of government powers to control the public. I don’t know why we can expect much opposition to this when the preceding abuses have been so accepted.

      • JeremiahTMM August 7, 2019 / 9:56 pm

        The second amendment guarantees all of the other rights and privileges granted to us Constitution. Without the second amendment, we don’t have the right to peaceably assemble, we don’t have a right to free speech, we don’t have a right for redress of grievances. Most importantly, we don’t have a right to live if the government so chooses that we don’t have that right. So, all of those basic rights disappear. And red flag laws are just one part of, or one half of an organized plan to bring about type of persecution that the left seeks.

        As far as there being no resistance to red flag laws, it is possible, seeing as a large of Americans have already been indoctrinated into a communistic worldview. The problem is that, the left is the most intolerant of God-fearing Christians, many of whom are pro second amendment, who are law abiding citizens and would never use their guns to mow down other citizens. But they are the ones who will be the first to be targeted for simply having opinions different from the left, and so, will be framed as incompetent, and unworthy to keep a firearm. But they will not just give up without a fight. And their families won’t let them go either. Quite simply put the red flag laws would lead inevitably to something larger, conflict wise.

        These red flag laws are what gives other countries incentive to decide plans to destroy and take over the United States. Because the second amendment is what protection for families which are the backbone of America, and without the second amendment then families can’t protect themselves from their own government or foreign governments. So goes the loss of freedom. I think though that there are enough people to see and understand this, and that will not comply with such unconstitutional mandates. At least I’m crossing my fingers!! 😊🤞

    Are people dead because of guns somehow more dead than people dead due to other reasons?

    • Cluster August 7, 2019 / 8:08 am

      Statistically speaking
      – More people died of drug overdose’s over the weekend than died at El Paso and Dayton
      – More people dies of car accidents
      – More people died of medical malpractice

      The media doesn’t care about lives. They care about their agenda and just to give everyone a glimpse into that agenda this morning’s regressive media is in full rage … despite the El Paso racist lunatic specifically saying in his manifesto that his views pre date Trump and have nothing to do with Trump AND despite the fact that the manifesto spoke directly to the fear of climate change – Morning Joe is unequivocally saying that Trump’s racist rhetoric is DIRECTLY responsible for this mass shooting on “good decent Hispanics”, which is a lie, and then of course there is no mention of the climate change angle. That’s how the regressive media covers the story. And of course, very little coverage of the Leftist who killed folks in Dayton.

      Absolutely, just as people who get the death penalty for murder are less dead, less punished, if their crime is just murder and not a “hate crime”..

      In the wacky wild world of the Left, everything is relative, which eventually boils down to being relative to political advantage.

    • Amazona August 7, 2019 / 11:53 am

      Republicans are complete idiots if they give in to the hysteria and pass “gun reforms” period. That is when the chasm between Republicans and Conservatives will widen enough to be visible to anyone.

      Colorado’s new radically Leftist legislature recently passed a red flag law,which is going to cost the state millions in lawsuits and probably some LEO lives as well, as it allows anyone to report anyone for allegedly being a danger to himself or others (a nicely vague description) upon which law enforcement is to arrive at the address, without warning, and confiscate all guns there. No due process, no investigation into either the gun owner or the person making the report. Gee, what could go wrong?

      Then the gun owner has to get a lawyer and go through a legal process to get his guns back, basically having to prove himself innocent of somethng that is not a crime.

      There is concern that law enforcement officers will be killed as they descend, without warning, onto homes of people who own guns. And, of course, there is that same upside-down, inside-out approach to the use/abuse of the legal system I have been talking about, that of requiring people to prove innocence.

      I agree that we have to have a working mechanism for reporting people who legitimately appear to be dangerous, and having those reports result in something. But this knee-jerk spasm of gun freakout is not the way to go.

      And once again, though I like a lot of what Trump says and does, I do wish he had a seven-second delay and a little more personal discipline. Instead, he bites on the bait dragged in front of him and mouths off without enough thought or analysis, and we end up with a president giving presidential credibility to the BS invention of “white nationalism” and supporting a gun grab idea. Then he has to try to walk back his cockamamie comments, making him look like a fool or a liar.

The Left like to “talk” about common sense gun laws, and if there was ever a place for common sense it’s with Red Flag laws. There should be a due process component as well as legal recourse by the accused against someone making an unfounded accusation. Anything less just invites catastrophe.

        As I said, Trump needs a seven second delay and a good editor for his speeches. Any time anyone, including the President of the United States, advocates for violating the Constitution to address any issue, that is profoundly wrong.

        Trump is often wrong. He is right more often than he is wrong, when he is right he is VERY right, and he usually realizes his mouth got ahead of his brain when he is wrong and goes back to try to correct it, but the fact is, he is often wrong.

        In this case, he is wrong in his speech, but not in any action. And I hope you hysterics who claim that Trump supporters do so blindly out of adoration pay attention when his base calls him out on this.

      • Amazona August 8, 2019 / 11:21 am

        We act as if reporting someone for being a potential threat, and disarming him, is the answer. But the problem goes back a lot farther than that.

        For example, the Leftist hysteria about confining the mentally ill has led to allowing them to live in society, where they cannot function well and often do pose threats. Back in the 60s there was a movement to release severely mentally ill people because to confine them to mental hospitals was just exactly the same thing as punishing them for being sick, doncha know, and criminalizing mental illness, blahblahblahblah. So these people were dumped on the streets, forced to find housing and fend for themselves, where they became victims of predators and suffered greatly.

        If we can’t legally confine the mentally ill, what good does it do to swoop in on someone and take away his guns? He can get other weapons, if he is violently inclined. Someone that unbalanced and focused on doing harm to others, for any reason, is going to find a way to do it. He will build a bomb, he will rent a van and drive it into a crowd of people, he will find a way to express his hatred and insanity.

        The fact is, most of the so-called mental health community is Liberal, and full of mushy claptrap, instead of having clear-eyed focus on dealing with real problems.

        I also suggest that getting rid of societal approval and encouragement of violence in response to disagreements with others would be a very important first step. If you are already unbalanced, already teetering on the edge of expressing your hostility and rage, you will only be encouraged by seeing millions of people supporting ugly violence such as strutting around waving an image of the bloody severed head of the president.. If you are leaning in the direction of violence, you will be encouraged by the belief that millions of people will admire you and praise you and support what you do.

        If we have a society that celebrates violence, excuses it and even praises it if it targets political opponents, makes it into entertainment the way Hollywood and Nintendo do, then society itself is to some extent responsible for the belief that violence against others is acceptable, at least to some. To someone mentally unstable the two faces of society, when it comes to violence, have to be confusing and contradictory. On one hand we ostentatiously mourn the deaths from some kinds of violence. On the other hand, some lives are considered completely devoid of any rights or value as they are snuffed out legally by abortion and we pay billions of dollars a year to wallow in carnage on television and in movies as death porn dominates our “entertainment” world.

        We teach young people to see exploding bodies and spraying of virtual blood in video games as fun, and rewarding. We see elected officials in the Congress of the United States openly encouraging people to seek out and harass and intimidate people simply for working for a political opponent, the kinds of intimidation that closely skirt actual violence by accepting things like having food thrown at them. or being hounded out of public places like restaurants.

        I see the red flag laws as the legal equivalent of a band-aid on a gushing wound. It is symbolic, mere virtue signaling. “Well, we voted to take guns away from some people who were reported as being potentially dangerous, so our work is done” and we pat ourselves on the back for dealing with a problem. But the problem should have been addressed years earlier, when bad behaviors in childhood, in schools, was excused or glossed over, when discipline was not accepted and evaluation of mental health issue precursors was written off as “judgmental” and “intolerant”.

        Red flag laws as they stand are nothing more, or less, that efforts to shift the blame and responsibility for a major societal cancer onto anything that does not require a hard cold evaluation of the defects in our society as a whole. And that is because those defects, for the most part, are the direct results of Liberalism, and therefore cannot be addressed without political fallout. So the same Liberalism that has corroded our culture and stripped so much personal responsibility and common sense from it now has to find a substitute “reason” for the problem. And they have chosen inanimate objects—guns.

    OK IT”S OFFICIAL – The democrats have lost their collective minds

    “The president said that we will fly our flags at half mast, until August 8th. That’s 8/8. Now, I’m not going to imply that he did this deliberately, but I am using it as an example of the ignorance of the adversary that’s being demonstrated by the White House,” he said.

    “The numbers 88 are very significant in neo-Nazi and white supremacy movement. Why? Because the letter ‘H’ is the eighth letter of the alphabet, and to them the numbers 88 together Stand for ‘Heil Hitler.’ So we’re going to be raising the flag back up at dusk on 8/8,” he continued.

      “…I’m not going to imply that he did this deliberately,” but I’m going to explain how he did it deliberately.

      The man’s tinfoil hat is just a wee bit too tight……..

    America needs to repent. We cannot begin to receive God’s blessings on a societal scale until there is repentance. It was the reason Israel spent 40 years in the wilderness, God patiently waited for His children to repent, seek Him and obey Him.

    4 people died …. no media coverage. Simon???? I think we need knife control

    A 33-year-old Hispanic man has been arrested outside a California 7-11 after stabbing and robbing his way across two cities in a bloody rampage that killed four people and seriously injured two others. The man, who hasn’t been identified, was taken into custody by multiple officers on Wednesday evening as he walked out of the convenience store in Santa Ana. He dropped a knife and gun he had taken from a security guard he had just killed as he was surrounded by police. Police say the man robbed more than half a dozen businesses and killed two men at his own apartment complex during the two-hour wave of violence earlier in the day. He also killed the security guard and a male worker at a Subway restaurant. The man seriously injured a female bank employee during his crime spree and stabbed a man – nearly severing his nose off – while he was pumping gas.

    I’ve been surfing the web and listening to talk radio more than usual the last day or two. There’s a backlash coming, and the Dems haven’t got a clue. Just keep up the vicious, divisive rhetoric, Donkeys — please!

    Depending on whose data you believe, between 20 and 34 times more people in the U.S. die from medical errors than die from gun homicides. We obviously need common sense doctor control.

      You’re right. Medical malpractice is a leading cause of death in the US, much more so than guns and the opiod crisis is off the charts. And this is where we need to hold Democrats accountable once again. There concern and passion for life immediately springs up when guns are involved but they are awfully silent on numerous other issues involving loss of life …. including abortion. In fact I directly blame the Democrat party for Kate Steinle’s death.

      Expose this and hold them accountable.

      And I agree Spook, the Democrats are in for a rude awakening in November 2020. They do not represent most Americans and they are soon to learn that painful truth.

    Leave it to Michelle Malkin to turn a phrase: “CRISIS VULTURES”. You gotta love it.

    She scorns the “gun-grabbing crisis vultures” in an excellent article about how the VA already has its own version of red flag laws, listing veterans for “disruptive behavior” when they object to poor treatment or to being ignored.

      Michelle is great, I need to read more of her stuff. Yesterday Rush coined the term “white apologist” which is what we should start calling every white regressive. They call us white nationalists so I think the term white apologist is perfect. Case in point:

      Hollywood Actress Rosanna Arquette apologized for being “born white,” saying she felt “shame” before locking down her Twitter account after a backlash.

      “I’m sorry I was born white and privileged. It disgusts me. And I feel so much shame,” the Pulp Fiction actress tweeted on Wednesday.

      Someone should tell her to get a tan.

        There used to be words to describe people suffering from self-hatred, people who were disgusted by themselves. They were all words associated with mental illness. Now the Left has tapped into THIS element of crazy and validated it, just as it has validated hate and racism, trying to make it seem noble.

        No, not noble. Just nuts.

        But Roseanne has had some options. She could have her breasts removed, dye her lovely blonde hair a mousy medium brown and wear it in a nondescript style, dress frumpishly and find a profession that does not pay her to be a cute white blonde. The only reason anyone has ever heard of her is that she has played up her whiteness for money.
