Ryan Reynolds Laments "Mistake" Wedding Choice With Blake Lively

Ryan Reynolds Laments "Mistake" Wedding Choice With Blake Lively | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have expressed deep remorse for their choice of wedding venue, not knowing it was an old plantation.
Al Cannistras insight:

Repentance seems to be the mood of the country…  down on your knees everyone!

How sad they are – and absurd to feel remorse for the sins of the great, great, great, great grandfathers who may not be theirs at all. After all, they must be related by skin color.

.

WAKE UP AMERICA – put on your big girl panties!

.

Why not look at it as a wedding venue held in a place where good and learned people remember the history of the past and celebrate the good of the present.

These Scientists Are Testing an Experimental COVID Vaccine on Themselves

These Scientists Are Testing an Experimental COVID Vaccine on Themselves | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Using just a pipette and a magnetic stirring device, a ragtag group of scientists is attempting to fast track the development of a COVID vaccine.
Al Cannistras insight:

“deviant approach compared to the staid world of conventional pharmaceutical research” – “PASSING IT AROUND LIKE A PARTY DRUG”

.

BUT

.

Similar approaches have been used to make other vaccines, as MIT Tech points out, including for hepatitis B and HPV.

.

SO – if they choose to self-administer and test – should the FDA have any say in the matter? What if it IS the cure?

Activists cautiously welcome decision as Oxford college’s board supports removing Cecil Rhodes statue

Activists cautiously welcome decision as Oxford college’s board supports removing Cecil Rhodes statue | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
The college’s decision has not been universally welcomed. Oxford’s chancellor, Chris Patten, called the demonstrators hypocrites and said the Rhodes Scholarship has benefited more than 8,000 students from around the world since its creation in 1902.

“There is a bit of hypocrisy … in Oxford taking money for 100 scholars a year, about a fifth of them from Africa, to come to Oxford, and then saying we want to throw the Rhodes statue in the Thames,” he told the BBC recently. He added that in 2003, Nelson Mandela paid tribute to Rhodes for his philanthropy and set up the Mandela Rhodes Trust to help heal divisions. “For all the problems associated with Cecil Rhodes’s history … if it was all right for Mandela, then I have to say it’s pretty well all right for me,” Mr. Patten said.
Al Cannistras insight:

Hate Crimes — FBI

Hate Crimes — FBI | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Defining a Hate Crime 
A hate crime is a traditional offense like murder, arson, or vandalism with an added element of bias. For the purposes of collecting statistics, the FBI has defined a hate crime as a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, or gender identity.” Hate itself is not a crime—and the FBI is mindful of protecting freedom of speech and other civil liberties.
Al Cannistras insight:

From the FBI website…   “the FBI has defined a hate crime as a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race,….”

.

So all the protesters – regardless of race – hate the “white race” or as they may camouflage it as “white privileged” and yet they are not being arrested and prosecuted for HATE CRIMES!

.

Can someone explain why that is?
