TED Talks have long since abandoned the pretense of being non-partisan, smartest-in-the-room, common-good topical explorations. Mostly they push lefty/liberal lines.The TED parodies floating around social media are hilarious.For all their cutting-edge smartness, I see zero evidence they come anywhere near mentions of race, genetics, DNA or IQ.Instead, TED fellow @acarrolldesign (Antionette Carroll), a woke black woman, informs us that poverty is a "system" that was made up by baddies who "made intentional choices around exclusion."Dumb though the comment is, it pretty much sums up the Establishment's mindset on race. We just need to tinker with the structural design a little, and it'll be all better.
"Systems such as discrimination, racism, or even poverty were designed by people who made intentional choices around exclusion. If these forms of oppression are by design, then they can be redesigned for a world that embraces the dignity of all people." - @acarrolldesign #TED2018— TED Talks (@TEDTalks) April 10, 2018
