Felix Valiente’s photo-shoot for last October’s issue of Vogue Spain featuring the sensual and beautiful Cindy Bruna and Misha Japanwala’s “sculptural garments” was probably meaningful in that it was probably meant to convey some meaning and message, most likely one suitable to various SJWs and race-baiting sorts. I just don’t care, neither about the intended meaning nor the meaning that others will read into it.
Cindy Bruna is to me a very beautiful woman and Mr. Valiente’s portrayal of her more than showcases her charms. That’s what care about, not any deeper and/or possibly offensive meaning that might be there.
A Probably Meaningful Difference
And such lack of caring is possibly an exemplar of one the most glaring fundamental differences between the normative American majority and the various Liberal and Progressive SJWs. People like me, i.e., normal Americans in this context, can look at something like this and not be offended, outraged, or otherwise bothered by it. We can simply set that aside and enjoy what is good about it. Those Liberal and Progressive SJWs and all the Millennials who’ve bought into their dogma? They can’t do that.
As a lot of people already know, CNN’s “Legal Analyst,” Areva Martin recently accused David Webb of being a racist or, at least very much not “woke” while being interviewed on his Sirius XM radio show, “Patriot” while discussing race, job qualifications, and applying for jobs .
I’ve chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that I’m qualified to be in each one,” Webb, a host on Fox Nation, told Martin in the interview. “I never considered my color the issue; I considered my qualifications the issue.”
To which Martin, a civil rights attorney who co-hosts the syndicated talk show “Face the Truth,” responded: “Well, David, that’s a whole other long conversation about white privilege, the things that you have the privilege of doing, that people of color don’t have the privilege of.”
“How do I have the privilege of white privilege?” Webb asked.
“David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege. This whole long conversation, I don’t have time to get into — ”
“Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped,” Webb interrupted. “I’m Black.”
OK! Honestly, that’s just about as funny as things can get. Some professional race-baiting grifter – Martin’s a “Civil Rights” attorney – getting hoist on her own hate-fueled petard is hilarious and always will be so to me. Schadenfreude, it’s real.
Petards Mean Sappers
Funny or not though, Martin’s mistake highlights some of racial problems and problem causers inside America’s borders. We’ve too many like Martin who make a career out of racism and who see everything through the lens of “oppression,” and who – displaying a level hypocrisy well past the border of the absurd – make ignorance- and envy-fueled assumptions about people, e.g., assuming Mr. Webb being White because his opinion was contrary to “Being Black.”
And, of course, to people like Areva Martin and those, such as CNN, who pander to- and enable her sort, “White” equals “Bad.” “White” equals the “Oppressors,” either those seen as active so or merely those who have “benefited” from “Whiteness.”
But Webb Is White
Remember race is a social construct with little to no scientific significance outside of the modern pseudo-sciences of psychology and sociology. Therefor, Mr. Webb’s “Whiteness” or “Blackness” is also just a social construct and social constructs are determined by opinion and bias less than by a specific set of empirical facts
And yes, I make no bones about considering psychology and sociology to be pseudo-sciences. They’re both more of an art than a science and both are plagued by extreme biases.
And, as Mr. Webb is not maintaining the Black Narrative or behaving in a “Black Enough” manner, he’s essentially White. This is because the cultural gatekeepers of Blackness view that as the sin of Respectability Politics, something that they don’t willing tolerate.
Respectability politics is, at its root, the inability to look into the cold dark void of history. For if black people are — as I maintain — no part of the problem, if the problem truly is 100 percent explained by white supremacy, then we are presented with a set of unfortunate facts about our home.— Ta-Nehisi Coates
“Charles Barkley and the Plague of ‘Unintelligent’ Blacks”
And yeah, the Black Enough Blacks and those that make their living off of that particular narrative have names for such people: Uncle Tom, Oreo, Sell-Out, Race Traitor, Graham Cracker, and House Nigger to name the most common ones. But they all mean White or too close in culture and thought to being White.
So, while in one sense, Marin was stupidly and ignorantly wrong, in other ways – the ways that matter to her and her people – she was right.

Here’s the thing – until we, the People enact a societal climate change, there’s always going to be snowflakes at Christmas. And they’re always going to be attacking some number of the trappings and trimmings of this American holiday, much like how they’ve been attacking its very name.
But then, this makes sense when one realizes that what they want for Christmas is something to be offended by. 😉
As the results of- and the Dems’ petty, utterly graceless, and insulting responses to the elections in both Florida and Georgia show, the Dems, especially the anti-White, race-baiting Blacks they come up with as candidates, will say and do anything to attack the process and the will of the voters, who rejected these sub-par individuals.
Both Gillum and Abrams claimed that they didn’t really lose and the that the results were because the elections were stolen from them via some combination of election fraud, voter suppression, and – of course, given these candidates – racism. And, as expected in these times, they spent the next couple of weeks engaging in bemoaning the “theft” and engaging in lawfare – and outright election fraud – against the victors and the People, who rejected these candidates as unworthy of office.
