“Reason is not automatic and those who do not accept it, cannot be defeated by it” -Ayn Rand.
This story from Blazing Cat fur. I simply do not have the adjectives to express my disgust and contempt for what has become of our institutions of reason and learning. Seems we lost the cold war after all, and Russia certainly won it, as I doubt they would stoop to this level of Marxist political correctness.

While people in different contexts can experience prejudice or discrimination, racism, in a North American context, is based on an ideology of the superiority of the white race over other racial groups. Racism is evident in individual acts, such as racial slurs, jokes, etc., and institutionally, in terms of policies and practices at institutional levels of society. The result of institutional racism is that it maintains white privilege and power (such as racial profiling, hiring practices, history, and literature that centre on Western, European civilizations to the exclusion of other civilizations and communities). The social, systemic, and personal assumptions, practices, and behaviours that discriminate against persons according to their skin colour, hair texture, eye shape, and other superficial physical characteristics.
