Chaos as San Francisco Blackout Shuts Down Everything

Dahboo7 claims there are power outages all over the U.S.

Either the Russians did it or you engage with reality and understand that power outages happen in third world countries like Mexifornia all the time.

Alternatively, this power outage is a dry run created by the Deep State in order to see how people cope with an emergency.

A massive power outage in San Francisco on Friday morning caused a blackout in neighborhoods across the city, from the Financial District to the Presidio, forcing the closure of businesses, a federal courthouse and a BART station, officials said. As SFGates reports, a spokesman for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. said at least 90,000 customers lost power.

BART’s Montgomery Station was closed due to the outage, which struck after 9 a.m. BART rains were running through Montgomery Station without stopping. Cable cars were also impacted and shuttles were put in place to provide service, according to the Municipal Transportation Agency.

There were reports of traffic lights out in many city intersections, and traffic was backing up on downtown streets. The Phillip Burton Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse at 450 Golden Gate Ave. was among the many buildings closed down by the outage.

A PG&E spokesman said the company was trying to determine the cause of the outage, as well as how long it would take to restore power.

The San Francisco Fire Department was responding to calls for service, but reported no injuries as of 10 a.m.

Of course, it could be worse..

So far the Russians have not been blamed.

Obama must make an emergency flight to San Francisco in order to comfort the LGBT snowflakes who are cowering in fear in closets all over the city.

Hey, you liberal dummies. Ann Coulter’s speech isn’t till the 27th. You shut everything down too early.

Racist babies? Infants prefer to learn from adults of their own skin color, study says

Another academic study blows up the “race is a social construct” nonsense theory that liberals love. We’re not “one race, the human race.” Race is real. Even babies know it.

Babies who aren’t old enough to walk or talk still manage to exhibit racial bias, according to a new study. The research found that infants prefer to learn from adults who share their skin color.
As part of the study, researchers from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) and the University of Toronto – along with collaborators from the US, UK, France and China – gave infants a series of videos to watch.

In each video, a female adult looked at one of the four corners of the screen. In some videos, an animal image appeared in the direction she had looked. In other films, an animal image appeared at a non-looked at location.

The results showed that the infants followed the gaze of members of their own race more than they followed the gaze of members of other races.

“This occurred when the faces were slightly unreliable, as they are in the natural environment…” a press release from the University of Toronto states. “This result suggests that, under uncertainty, infants are biased to learn information from own-race adults as opposed to other-race adults.”

Infants under the age of six months were not found to show such bias, according to the study, which was published in the journal Child Development on Monday.

The findings follow a separate study which was conducted by the same researchers and published in the journal Developmental Science in January.

In that study, the researchers played a sequence of videos for three- to 10-month infants. The films depicted female adults with a neutral facial expression.

Before viewing each face, infants heard a music clip. They then participated in one of four music-face combinations: happy music followed by own-race faces; sad music followed by own-race faces; happy music followed by other-race faces; and sad music followed by other-race faces.

The research found that infants aged six- to nine-months looked longer at own-race faces when paired with happy music as opposed to sad music. They looked longer at other-race faces when paired with sad music compared to with happy music.

“Results showed that after six months of age, infants begin to associate own-race faces with happy music and other-race faces with sad music,” the press release states.

As with the first study, infants under the age of six months were not found to have the same bias.

Dr. Kang Lee, a professor at OISE’s Jackman Institute of Child Study and the lead author of both pieces of research, said the findings of both studies are “significant for many reasons.”

“The results show that race-based bias already exists around the second half of a child’s first year. This challenges the popular view that race-based bias first emerges only during the preschool years,” he said.

Meanwhile, Dr. Naiqi (Gabriel) Xiao, first author of the two papers and a postdoctoral fellow at Princeton University, said the findings are notable because they contradict the belief that racial bias is associated with negative experiences a person may have had with other-race individuals. In other words, the children in the study were simply too young to have memories of such experiences.

Pointing to previous studies which indicate that many babies typically experience 90 percent of own-race faces, Lee said that racial interactions during infancy may influence our perceptions about race in adulthood.

“These findings thus point to the possibility that aspects of racial bias later in life may arise from our lack of exposure to other-race individuals in infancy,” he said.

Lee concluded that it is important to identify the starting point of racial bias in order to find ways of preventing it.

Tucker Carlson interview the amiable Dr. Kang Lee in this youtube clip. Tucker gives Dr. Lee a bit of a hard time, but Dr.Lee is NOT one of Tucker’s liberal idiots that he loves to destroy.

Interestingly, dogs are racist too, but only toward blacks. I wish academics would do a study on that.

HuffPo: Time to Deny White Men the Right to Vote

I have the feeling that the Jews will suddenly become nonwhite when white males can no longer vote.

This op-ed is out of the pen of a South African Jew feminist, Shelley Garland: “Shelley Garland is an activist and a feminist and is currently completing an MA degree in philosophy. When she’s not gagging at South Africa’s unique brand of rainbow politics, she’s working on ways to smash the patriarchy.”

SHELLEY GARLAND. HAS ISSUES WITH WHITE MEN.

If this one is not a Jew, then she’s one of the worst race traitors one can imagine. Just because she looks sane in the picture doesn’t mean that she’s not a lunatic.

Huffington Post

Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year have often been due to the votes of white men. If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa’s biggest cities.

Grateful Freed Whale Doris Puts on a Show

DORIS THE WHALE, HAPPILY FREE FROM AN ENTANGLING FISHING NET.

Excerpt from The Telegraph

humpback whale rescued after being trapped in fishing nets for several hours has shown no ill effects from her ordeal by putting on a stunning show for tourists.

The 20-tonne mammal – known as Doris – thrilled onlookers as she frolicked off the coast of Cornwall at Falmouth Bay.

Sightseers on a local wildlife cruise were treated to the sight of the gentle giant breaching the surface a total of 25 times.

Keith Leeves, who has run AK Wildlife Cruises for many years, described the moment as ‘pure joy’.

He said: “We know it’s the same whale that got herself entangled in nets in Devon because we could see rope burn marks on her.

“So we know this is Doris.

“But thankfully she was freed by the RNLI and conservationists and there she was putting on a magnificent show on her journey to the Atlantic.”

Last month the 45ft humpback got tangled in whelk pot lines off the South Devon coast around 100 miles away.

She was in danger of drowing from exhaustion as she got herself into difficultes at Blackpool Sands near Dartmouth.

But she was saved in a three-hour rescue as the RNLI and the British Divers Marine Life Rescue joined forces with local fisherman.

A team of nine eventually managed to board a fishing boat and haul the whale to the surface to expose her tail and cut the rope tangled around it.

Capt Lees said whale sightings were becoming increasingly common around this time of year.

He added: “Last year we sighted humpback whales off the coast of Falmouth on April 8.

DORIS CELEBRATES.

Have A Laugh Video: Rapper Gets Jumped by deer!!

When I had my house on an acre in an area populated by hundreds of deer, a special herd would come up to me, led by Mama the deer. She brought her big family up to meet and greet me. Soon I had bread and pizza (thrown out by a local restaurant) for the herd. Once in a while one of them would challenge another by rearing up on hind legs. Deer are cute, but crazy.
