The Soros-backed Open Society Foundations said in a press release Monday that the money would be channeled to organizations and leaders in Black communities across the country, aiming to boost efforts to sustain the momentum of the police reform and racial justice movement sparked by the death of George Floyd.
The foundation said it will invest $150 million in five-year grants for Black-led racial justice groups.

    Chump change. LBJ's War On Poverty cost us 22 Trillion dollars and where did that get us?? No, Soros is about socialism - communism pure and simple. One of the central figures in the BLM Foundation is a convicted terrorist pardoned by Bill Clinton on his last day in office. These are scary times.

    I've come to the "concussion" that it's Not racism...it's behaviorism...we are complaining about and judging on behavior...not one's ancestry, skin color or economic station.

    A great percentage of all people stuffed in low income sections of the cities have a behavior problem.

      Gold teeth, pants around one's butt, chains, cars with giant wheels and tires that look like electrical tape wrapped around, speaking with bizarre slang, ignoring spelling and grammar... on and on.

      None of this is in genes or skin color. This is a culture of poverty that has limited the opportunities of so many. The only manner this was forced was not through any racism, but through welfare, enslaving generations to that limited culture.

        More from fear of not belonging.

          Interesting point.
          Also, Black Americans originally came from a barbaric tribal culture...and captured by other barbarians, I might add. For some reason, progressives, in their attempt to divide pushed that uncivilized culture upon them as an identity.
          That continued separation from embracing the American culture force them to invent their own identities instead of identifying as Americans.

          Have you observed that?

            Yes.
            The most important thing is to understand is that the past creates the present. There are no redoes. No, "if only I, whom was self created from scratch in that born body", were to have been born elsewise." There is no getting around the fact that every sperm, due to gene shuffling making each different and produced to compete with 200 to 500 million others to fertilize an ovum, will produce a unique human body. It is that bodie's job to produce the self, I, or soul depending ones preference.
            All that indicates is that nearly all humans are the result the large amount of slavery for centuries of the past.
            Just consider the difference that a small fraction of second delay in fertilization would have on gene expression. Example, the difference of bodies of fraternal twins and then their creation of their I-selves.
            If one cannot accept one's individuality, then one is likely wishing not have been born.

            As for the irrational call for reparations for having been born, in the USA one cannot and never should be held or even be considered as responsible for the "sins of the fathers" or any other human being even in the views of the religions.

              All ethnic groups enslaved each as booty from warfare, landowner to peasant farmer, to the poor selling their children to the rich as indentured servants. My grandmother was an indentured servant to a wealthy family in Poland in the 1890's.

                Had that not happened you would not now exist and had not all that happened almost all the present living persons would not now exist.
                Just learn from the past using reason and try not to repeat same horrors.

      Behaviorism = culturalism?

        It was my intention to redefine the problem using a word/concept people could connect with.
        I am sure there is a better word, a behavior embedded in a culture is not the problem, unless we are talking about the middle east perhaps but the behavior seems to emblematic of all people in the poorest parts of the cities, not just one group.

        I do get what your suggesting, it has become a culture, so to speak but it's not specifically confined to one's heritage...they are all or mostly Americans and the influence is post modern cultural marxism witch has a goal to take control of all things. They won't be putting up with the behavior they have induced once they win.
        The same would go for other countries too...their own people regardless of intersectionalities are influenced by cultural marxism.

        Do we really have to say it's the culture of marxism?...when in reality, the outcome is to take away all liberty and agency and put the power to rule into the hands on the worst and least qualified, to destroy individualism, responsibility and mutuality.

        That's the way I see it...calling out the behavior might hit home better.

    Soros is the anti-Galt. He is the dark that proves that the light exists. Most evil-doers fail through the use of physical force. He uses more subtle coercion, and as a result is more likely to succeed. Those who can understand evil when they see it are going to need to stiffen their backbones and face the discomfort of opposing the devil face-to-face.

    If George Soros was stood to face a firing squad there would be massive lines facing him hoping their shots hit the mark. The Webster Dictionary should define the word EVIL with a picture of Soros.

    I think you mean racial injustice.

      "Racial injustice"? Define that along with "social justice" and "systemic racism".
      Personal responsibility puts the lie to all such nonsense today. Those who take personal responsibility for their actions and their lives, succeed in life. They don't allow others to define what they can and cannot do nor accomplish. For any reason, including the false labels of "race", gender, etc. They just do what they need to do to succeed in their lives.
      Think about it. "All men are created equal...". What they do with the talents they are born with is up to the individual, not the society into which they are born.
      Just sayin'.

    "They won't be putting up with the behavior they have induced once they win." OlduglyCarl...had to emphasize this. It is exactly what will happen. Once the gain control of everything...behavior outside the norms will not be TOLERATED.

    In reference to the original post, perhaps Soros could invest in the communities where blacks are killing blacks at rates tens of orders of magnitude more than any police have done to them instead of wasting time and money on undoing the non-existent racism they keep crying about!

    I am a fan of Karl Popper. I have read everything of his that I can, and hope that I have some small understanding. I prefer long intricate books. I have read Atlas Shrugged many times.

    I have also read Karl Popper’s The Open Society and Its Enemies (New One-Volume Edition, Princeton 2013) in full detail many times. It is unfortunate that the title could not be licensed and prohibited from corruption by such as ‘S’.

    https://www.amazon.com/Open-Society-I...

    Popper put the lie to Marxian materialism for men having freewill. Popper’s OS was prologue to his The Poverty of Historicism

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histori.... See Popper, see Marx.
    Y’all are causing me to trash my bookshelves, now spending time everyday restoring floor space around my seat.
