Borrowed from a friend: "PARTY OF TOLERANCE UPDATE
Teachers in Burbank, California, have been told they have to stop assigning five classic novels to students due to complaints of racism. They include Harper Lee’s “To Kill A Mockingbird,” long considered one of the greatest anti-racist books of all time.
One of the complaints against the books was that a white student who called a black student the “N-word” claimed to have learned it from one of the books. It’s interesting that he didn’t learn it from any of the thousands of rap songs that he probably has on his cell phone, but from a book that I bet he didn’t want to have to read."
5 trends pointed to a Trump win, but, didn’t. WSJ noticed one anomaly in the election.
“Bellwether counties” have consistently pick the winner of the national election. Of 3,000 counties nationwide, only 19 have predicted winner in every election since 1980. That 4-decade record came to a halt when 18 of those 19 counties failed Biden and voted for Trump. Not even close: on avg, Trump won by 16 points. Biden won Clallam County, Wa., and by 3 points. Vigo County, Ind., correctly predicted the winner in every race since 1882 but two, in '08 and '52. 2020 polls showed a virtual tie, but Vigo Co. voted Trump by nearly 15 points. Bellwether 58 counties picked winner since 2000, Trump won 51 at avg of nearly 15 points. Biden won 7 by an avg of 4 points.)
The 19 co. also more likely to switch parties, which is why they tend to pick up trends, like a swing toward Biden. That “trend” failed in nearly 95% of these counties. Maybe these counties finished counting their votes before 4 a.m."
