"Google suspended its Gemini image creation tool last week after it generated embarrassing and offensive results, in some cases declining to depict white people, or inserting photos of women or people of color when prompted to create images of Vikings, Nazis, and the Pope.

The controversy spiraled when Gemini was found to be creating questionable text responses…"

Personal Share About Speaking Out Against Hate and Division👇🏾

🗣️Yet, I admit: There are moments when I feel vulnerable, even hopeless. The weight of this battle can be overwhelming. But my mentor's words echo in my mind: "You are not helpless." And so, I press forward, fueled by the belief that change is possible.

Are you with me?🗳️🌎

Paul Waldman says,

"If Donald Trump gets back to the Oval Office, it will be because — once again — rural Whites put him there. Which is why I hope that White Rural Rage: The Threat to American Democracy, my new book with Tom Schaller, will be particularly timely as we head into the general election."

Then he provides an overview of the book, which explores the implications of this central finding:

"The more we looked into patterns of public opinion, the more it became clear that rural Whites are more likely than other Americans to express racism and xenophobia; to fall prey to conspiracy theories; to have the thinnest commitment to foundational democratic principles; and in extreme cases, to support violence as a political tool."

"While those kinds of beliefs can be found everywhere, if they are particularly prevalent among rural Whites, America has a serious problem on its hands. That’s because while rural Whites are treated with kid gloves — and often lauded as the realest of 'real' Americans — they also wield outsize power in our political system."

"Not only are they given added political leverage by the Electoral College and the anti-democratic design of the U.S. Senate, in state after state, Republicans have built their own power on drawing district lines to maximize the electoral influence of rural Whites."

Health effects of structural racism

"14% of Black Americans over the age of 65 have Alzheimer’s, compared to 10% of white people. By 2060, cases are expected to increase fourfold."

"75% of African Americans are likely to develop high blood pressure by age 55. High blood pressure was listed as a contributing factor in over 20% of COVID deaths of Black people."

"18% of Black youth said they were exposed to racial trauma often or very often in their life. 50% experience moderate to severe symptoms of depression."

"12.3% of Black children suffer from asthma. Black children are twice as likely to suffer from asthma compared to white children."

"14.8% of Black infants were born prematurely in 2021. Black babies were born prematurely more than any other racial or ethnic group."

🇺🇸While I may be one person, my love for America compels me to stand together with others against hate and intolerance in all their forms.

📣To those who speak out against elected leaders, individuals, or groups with a documented history of hate, affiliation with white nationalism, and fascism:

You give hope to us all.

🗣️To those who remain silent, I pose this question: Is tolerating racism the new patriotism?

🎯When we stay quiet, hate festers.

Structural in car ?

Quotes based on addresses seem to produce differential insurance quotes mapping onto ethnic character of areas.... of course eat ensures deny explicit racial profiling, but this is exactly how structural racism works, its not necessarily explicitly articulated to have an effect.

Looks like FCA needs to sort this out...

I will be supporting the federal at next elections because I can't forgive over & can't get over on several other issues that are very important to me & many voters

I don't even like NDP either but it's them or covert WS dude with a pretty face or full out fascist fuckers. Unlike USA - with no real decent election choices between racist sellouts - we still have some options in .

@Jon_Kramer I have never & will never shoot at humans (unless absolutely necessary). I fired 2 warning shots in air & told them to please leave before I shoot their trucks up. They laughed at me. I reloaded. Then shot out 3 of their truck tires & then told them - I won target shoot comps & I'm gonna shoot one of their ankles off next, if they don't leave.

I shouldn't have ever faced that racist shit. Don't believe whiteys on how there's no on . They don't experience it.
