2021.12.06 21:30 jacktor115 Nigerian immigrants are the Woke's Cryptonite
Nigerian immigrants are, in my opinion, the group that closes the case on the question of systemic racism. Their success in America proves either that systemic racism does not exist or that it can be overcome.
Either way, their success renders the whole race as a barrier to economic mobility a red herring.
Even if systemic racism exists, it's clearly no match for Nigerian immigrants. They are Black, and they can succeed. Can we please stop blaming race? It's obviously not race.
Of course, we can't.
Below are some reasons the Left gives when confronted with the Nigerian case, along with my response to those reasons.
Please share with the Left. Would LOVE for them to chime in. Maybe someone actually has a decent explanation.
1) Nigerian immigrants are hand-selected for their education and skills.
Uhm, that's my point. Systemic racism is supposed to discriminate against people of a certain race. Last I checked, systemic racism did not carve out any exceptions for the educated and skilled. The fact that America is selecting immigrants based on education and skills proves my point, not yours.
2) These Nigerian immigrants are still discriminated against.
Perhaps. But as a society we do not care about discrimination for discrimination's sake. If we did, we'd care about discrimination against whites and Asians in university admissions. We only care when discrimination leads to inequalities, and in the Nigerian example, it does not.
3) Nigerians are the exception, not the rule.
Not so fast. The Nigerian example can be an exception to the rule or it can be contradicting evidence. To be contradictory evidence, something must contradict the main thesis. At first glance, Nigerians succeeding appears to contradict the main thesis of systemic racism, so we assume it is is contradictory evidence.
4) Nigerians have a different culture than Black Americans.
Congratulations. You've just identified the factor that does a better job of explaining different group outcomes than race.
I know they have different cultures. Change the culture, change the outcome. It's that simple.
5) Some minorities are bound to get through the cracks.
Minorities are not made of liquid, so how the analogy applies is beyond me. In any case, that argument may work for explaining why some Black Americans succeed despite systemic racism, But Nigerians are not random occurrences. They "systematically" outperform the average American. This is an established, undeniable pattern.
Your job is to explain why systemic racism allows a sub-group of Black people in the U.S. to consistently succeed.
6) White people will allow minorities to succeed if it is in the interest of white people.
Let's assume you are right. But you don't get to just say it and have it be true. You have to explain why the act of bringing Black educated individuals to this country is more in the interest of white people than, say, educating a Black American? In other words, how is it more in the interest of white people to have a Nigerian immigrant succeed but not a Black American?

All of the sudden I am not receiving email notifications when I receive a text on TextNow. I have tried with various accounts, and I am having the same issue. Everything was fine up until today - prior to today I was receiving emails every time I got a text on TextNow. I checked my spam folder, nothing. Tried with various providers - GMail and Outlook - and still no luck. The setting is turned on in the account and the email on the account is verified.
Anyone else experiencing this issue?

I’m looking for smaller cases, the same size as CD cases (I don’t mind if it’s wider, as long as it’s the same height and depth) so I can create custom covers for my switch games that will fit in with the rest of my custom cases for PS4/PS5/Xbox cases which are all in jewel cases.
Any suggestions would be extremely helpful

2021.12.06 21:30 yu1080p In Need of Dating Advice
Hey there, I am currently caught in a dilemma and would appreciate hearing other opinions. My coworker and I have sparked a romantic interest between each other and been talking to for the past four months (Not the best that we’re coworkers but it just happened). Everything was going absolutely great and we were talking daily and going on dates from Aug-Oct. We even discussed becoming exclusive with each other at one point or another, but I wasn’t ready at the time. November is when he began distancing himself so I asked if everything was ok. He stated he does not feel mentally stable at the moment (due to stress from work, family, his son). I told him I’m there if he needs someone there or a friend. For most of November we’ve kept in contact random messages/calls, talk in the office and hung out once since. I am now left feeling conflicted on where we stand. Here is my dilemma… do I not say anything and just go with things or bring it up and ask him where we stand. Thank you in advanced for taking the time to read this.

Billy boy says there ain’t many trades out there for Our Wussell here’s a few I like: Josh Allen makes around the same money and he’d be a decent from deep but probably probably shoot 40% from 2 feet to 80 feet. Mike Trout: Could finally get him on a contender The entire WNBA for like 4 years. One of them is bound to be decent.

2021.12.06 21:30 alexmwhite ISO: Rent Garage for Van Conversion
| Born & raised in the Springs since the late 80s, moved away in 2005 and just moved back last month. to be closer to my elderly parents. Needless to say, a lots changed in 16 years. I have spent weeks trying to find a workspace to convert our cargo van to live in full time, and have come up short. The challenge is finding an entrance with an 8.7 foot clearance.|
More than willing to pay rent, sign agreements/contracts, and provide personal/professional references. I am a wildland EMT/firefighter and my partner is a preschool teacher. A little more of our backstory can be found here. I've tried Neighbor.com with no luck, and after this Reddit post I'll try Craigslist and Nextdoor too.
Ideally we could rent a space with a nine foot garage door that has adequate electricity to run power tools, a lock, and we could rent month-to-month. Here are the exact dimensions:
In inches: 213.2” L x 103.6” H x 97.6” W
In feet: 17.8’ L x 8.7’ H x 8.2’ W
Any leads would be sincerely appreciated. As of now, we may have to move the build out-of-state :'(

2021.12.06 21:30 Solarisphere Is clean front diff fluid a good measure of the fluid's condition?
I drained the front diff of my Xterra shortly after I bought it and the fluid looked almost new. The rear diff fluid was quite dirty. This difference isn't surprising, as the rear diff is used for every km while the front diff isn't loaded 99% of the time.
Does this mean the front diff fluid had lots of life left? What causes the fluid to break down? Is it heat, fluid shearing, old age, contaminants, or something else? Is it likely to wear out without changing appearance?
I've got a 2006 4x4 Nissan Xterra with 265,000 km but I expect this would be relevant to all 4WD trucks.
