Unless all the Men and women shave their heads their really isn't much they can do...

There we have it. Mongoloid, Caucasoid and Negroid Olympic swimmers should shave their heads. Those of any race who don't are at a disadvantage.

...does not flatten out like caucasian hair or even Asian hair.

Was not capitalizing Caucasian racially motivated?

They're investing 100% in infrastructure and when they think they're ready, flip the switch and turn on the profits.

Laughable.

And Tesla still loses money on every car they sell.

Tesla makes money by selling emission credits for its cars to other automakers.

Posted in: U.S. keeps Tier-2 rating of Japan's efforts against human trafficking See in context

Weird given that nowhere in this article or the report does it say, “The U.S. is better than everyone.” Sounds like sour grapes.

The document on the state department site is preceded by dozens of pages of who great the US thinks it is. And this report card is created by the US government.

I've spent as much time in China as most people here. Hell, when I first went to China, I was followed by two people 24 hours per day and Beijing was busses and bicycles.

China was a magnificent culture 50o years ago.

Tell people that Mao and his wife killed a million people and Chinese people say they've never heard of that. It's hard to put an exact number, but 750,000 to 3 million is the estimate of people killed in the Cultural Revolution.

Posted in: U.S. keeps Tier-2 rating of Japan's efforts against human trafficking See in context

Well, I have a search engine thing called "Google." I looked up the document on the US State Department site. I also found many other things that run counter to the US "We're better than everyone" proclamations.

To the victims of trafficking, it doesn't matter about government involvement. The US construction, landscaping and food industries are filled to the brim with people trafficked to the US. Have you ever heard of a single US company being charged with harboring or hiring illegals and illegally trafficked people? Never.

Why not? Because it is condoned and encouraged to keep people confined to slave-labor wages and the fear of imprisonment. The Immigration and Customs agents are bribed by companies to look the other way.

Profit is the master enslaver in the US.

And the US is Tier 1? Yeah, right...

The US lives in a bubble of nonsense.

"A common misconception about human trafficking is that it does not happen in the United States. This is false, as the United States is ranked as one of the worst countries globally for human trafficking. It is estimated that 199,000 incidents occur within the United States every year." --

Very easy. Cancel the games, many if not all problems avoided, including this one.

The Japan Olympic Committee would probably consider that to be "hate speech."

Are downvotes considered "hate speech?"

Posted in: Serena Williams says she will not play at Tokyo Olympics See in context

The US pays only $25,000 for a gold medal, $15,000 for silver and $10,000 for bronze, so in the rarified financial air that Williams lives in, that might not be enough to entice her to leave her child. She already has gold medals.

Did none of you read my comment that she now says that she was just hot and wanted to be in the shade and was not protesting anything??

Posted in: Message sent: Berry turns away from flag during anthem See in context

Well, what do you know...

Now she says that what she did "was disrespectful." She's backtracked and said she was hot and wanted to be in the shade. She put here shirt over her head because she was hot.

Of course, she also said that she was "set up" because they played the anthem while she was on the podium. The victimhood never ends.

I'm sticking with my statement that it was probably calculated to try to get some *Osaka money. She's trying to play everyone for fools. She just happened to have that shirt on. Yeah, right.

*Osaka money : protection money from companies who think being woke will keep someone from calling them racist and canceling them.

Posted in: Message sent: Berry turns away from flag during anthem See in context

Good. All these angry comments only show that this type of protest is both necessary and efficient.

There are no angry comments. Freedom of expression is a two-way street.

People have the right to disapprove of her action and also to question her motives.

Is this just a flagrant "look at me" moment like Osaka, hoping to collect sponsorship money?

Precisely what is it she is protesting? Is she protecting being Black?

We've been reading for 40 years about Japan sinking into the sea from debt, deflation and a declining population. All of it written by agenda motivated people who are parroting what the banks want, what real estate people want and what the government wants.

You can manage growth and you can manage negative growth.

From the advert:

She should give the all of the contract money to build a hospital in Haiti, her other nationality. She is already the richest female athlete in the world. But, I'm sure she'll go buy another $7 million house somewhere to hide out in.

That's only 22% of them testing positive. What's the problem?

Let's see... 11,000 athletes coming X 22% = 2,420 people.

That's nothing. 14,500 people in Japan have died from Covid-19.
