Who was the white woman at the Oscars with the Black Women from 'Hidden Figures'?

Remember what the anecdote from the Soviet Union taught us about the communists: never be the first to stop clapping... Katherine Johnson was never celebrated as a major black contributor to NACA or NASA because she hardly looks black at all. More so, she never made any contributions - minor or major - worth hiding at all.

"Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe…": A T-shirt promoting 'The Walking Dead' pulled because of Racism Claims

A major retailer is causing an uproar by pulling a The Walking Dead t-shirt from its stores after complaints from a customer who said the shirt was racist. 
The t-shirt references an extremely violent scene from the runaway hit about the zombie apocalypse, where the main villain, Negan (Jeffery Dean Morgan) uses the rhyme, “Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe” to decide which characters to kill with his barbed-wire wrapped baseball bat. 
The Independent reports that a British man, Ian Lucraft complained to the retailer that the shirt was racist and “…relates directly to the practice of assaulting black people in America.” 
Lucraft , a Methodist Minister, notes that the counting rhyme originally goes: “Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe… catch a n***er by his toe.” 
“It was fantastically offensive and I can only assume that no-one in the process of ordering it knew what they were doing or were aware of its subliminal messages,” said Lucraft. 
He adds, “It is directly threatening of a racist assault, and if I were black and were faced by a wearer I would know just where I stood.” 
The Independent reports that after Lucraft wrote to the CEO of Primark, the company decided to remove the shirt from its shelves. 
A spokesman said: “Any offence caused by its design was wholly unintentional and Primark sincerely apologises for this.” 
But many took to Twitter to decry the company’s decision, saying the shirt has nothing to do with racism at all.
In virtually every part of the western world where communism never reigned, white people have abandoned Christianity for the religion of egalitarianism, devoting their lives to rooting out any oppression or persecution of white people toward non-whites (systemic racism) and annihilating from memory any white historical figure who ever dared utter an unkind word toward those individuals who comprise the rising tide of color.

It's a cult, but one where no tithing is necessary to fund the endeavors of this church since its teachings are already entrenched dogma as the standard operating procedure in academia, television, Hollywood, the judicial system and (especially) in corporate America.

Oh, you can't get out backwards. You've got to go forwards to go back

Hidden Figures is going to win the Best Picture at the 2017 Academy Awards.

But is okay.

Space, as Dr. Greg Johnson and I discussed, is but a dream deferred.

Because Hidden Figures is truly science fiction, designed to boost the egos of blacks today and paint white people of yesterday as nothing more than hideous racists incapable of reaching the heavens without... hidden black female mathematicians.

But that's not quite true, is it John H. Sengstacke?

Who was Sengstacke? In Lynn Spiegel's book Welcome to the Dreamhouse: Popular Media and Postwar Suburbs (p. 165), we learn just who he is:
By the following week, the Defender's editor and publisher John H. Sengstacke had reversed the paper's initial enthusiasm almost completely. In his editorial, "Lily-White NASA," Sengstacke admonished NASA for failing to rain any black men as astronauts since the death (in 1967) of Maj. Robert H. Lawrence. he thought this exclusion was not simply an oversight but intentional. "The Pentagon," he wrote, "has seen to it that [no other black man] is selected for that training." Then he concluded with a not-too-veiled threat: "In truth, there are virtually no Negroes involved in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration... This is typical American racism in action. Like all other areas of racial bias in American life which had to be assaulted by picketing and militant demonstrations, NASA awaits its baptism of racial fire before it integrates its space program." (column published by the Chicago Defender, July 29, 1969)
When you distill down black contributions to the United States of America, they all are nothing more than perfecting the art of picketing and militant demonstrations in demanding white people abandon their future to provide blacks with a present.

In so doing, we ultimately destroy the future for everyone.

To get to space today, our astronauts hitch a ride with the Russians.

I was born in a world where white supremacy had been supplanted by egalitarianism, which ultimately birthed black supremacy and the strange belief that every human on the planet somehow possesses rights to be an American under the U.S. Constitution.

And though Hidden Figures is poised to win Best Picture, the truth of what happened in the 1960s, when white men stepped foot on the moon a mere 66 years after white men flew for the first time in human history in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, represents the ultimate seeds of our liberation.

John H. Sengstacke knew it, too.

The black contributions to America are simply assaulting the American way of life white people collectively create with pickets and militant demonstrations, demanding we abandon our dreams so that we can fund theirs.

We mortgaged the future on the belief we could spend trillions of dollars to prove race was really just a social construct, but in so doing, we were provided with endless data samples proving the contrary.

The State of the Shelley House at 4600 Labadie Ave in St. Louis... a Powerful Reminder the 'Racists' Were Right All Along

You might remember the house at 4600 Labadie Avenue in St. Louis

It's pretty famous. 

At just under 1,800 square feet, this home is a civil rights icon. 
Courtesy of Google Earth, the infamous Shelley home (which helped defeat freedom of association) is in a now 100 percent black community that resembles a war zone. Look at all the burnt-out properties surrounding this civil rights icon, part of the National Register of Historic Places...

The value of this infamous home has nearly doubled in four years, while homes around it are going for $1,000, $2,000, $2,500 (just next door), $2,000, and a home just down the street sold for a whopping $500...

It's listed on the National Register of Historic Places, which might be the primary reason this home is valued at 661.31% more than homes in the same community...
Property Overview - 4600 Labadie Ave, Saint Louis, MO 63115 is a multi family home built in 1906. The median sales price for the Greater Ville area is $64,237. The $114,196 estimated value is 661.31% greater than the median listing price of $15,000 for the Greater Ville area. 
Give up on what house this is

Oddly enough, it has an appraised value of $13,400 (2016)... though Zillow claims the value of the home is $82,000. 

Guess it yet?

Here's a pictorial you might like to jog your memory...

Here's another hint. [North St. Louis house changed civil rights history,, 2-13-17]:
In the 1940’s, J.D. Shelley wanted the American dream in St. Louis. 
“He wanted a nice place for his family to live while he was here,” said Jeffrey Copeland, Professor and Head of the Department of English Language and Literature at the University of Northern Iowa. “There were nine of them in the family.” 
In 1945, Shelley bought a house at 4600 Labadie Avenue in north St. Louis. What Shelley, an African American, didn’t know was there was a 1911 covenant barring blacks from owning the property. To block the home sale to the Shelley family, Louis Kraemer sued. According to author and filmmaker Copeland, Shelley’s legal fight to buy a home for his family changed the course of civil rights in the United States, via the U.S. Supreme Court. 
Courtesy of Zillow, we see the property value near the Shelley house in North St. Louis... a hilarious reminder of the consequences of desegregation: black people depreciating home values (the free market reacting to social dysfunction, crime and negative social capital created by blacks)
“Shelley v. Kraemer was actually one of the more milestone rulings in the history of this country,” said Copeland. 
Prior to 1948, blacks in St. Louis and throughout the U.S. could rent property, but racial covenants often prevented African Americans from buying real estate.“As of 1945 through 1948 when these events took place, people could be denied where they lived because of their race, color, creed, national origin,” said Copeland. 
“In this particular case, the covenant was specifically designed to keep African Americans out of the community.” 
Although it took multiple court cases, the Shelleys prevailed. 
“Mr. and Mrs. Shelley eventually do win in court. They win in St. Louis Civil Court.  
They lose at the Missouri Supreme Court, then they win at the United States Supreme Court,” said Copeland. “And when they win, people are overjoyed. This is a major victory. This literally changed the face and color of America.” 
The winning attorney in Shelley v. Kraemer was the NAACP’s Thurgood Marshall, who went onto become the first African American Supreme Court justice. 
Copeland said he is fascinated by Shelley v. Kraemer. He produced a documentary and wrote a book about the case. “Olivia’s Story” looks at Shelley v. Kraemer through the eyes of Sumner High School teacher Olivia Merriweather Perkins, who joined a group of people assisting the Shelley family with their legal battles. 
“People of different races, different religions, different national origins all got together and said ‘Look, enough is enough. This is an inequality that we cannot let stand,’” said Copeland. “They put themselves on the line without regard for their own personal safety. They decided they were going to stand up and say ‘This is going to change and we’re going to do it.’” 
Copeland said Shelley v. Kraemer inspired civil rights activists for decades to come.“Once Shelley v. Kraemer was on the books, then people started looking at other injustices as well and they weren’t as afraid to get up and say ‘We see what they did in St. Louis. Now you know what? It’s our turn.’” said Copeland. 
Copeland debuts his documentary on Shelley v. Kraemer Saturday, February 18 at 7 p.m. at the Missouri History Museum.

It turns out the first black couple to move onto Labadie Avenue, J.D. and Ethel Shelley, purchased the long-celebrated (it's a National Historical Landmark after all...) "Shelley House" for $5,700 in 1945.

The neighborhood was 100 percent white until this transaction, which of course was illegal due to the restrictive covenant placed on the property.  

But that was 69 years ago.

Located in zip code 63115, 4600 Labadie Avenue is in an area that is now nearly 100 percent black.   

It wasn't but 69 years ago two atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end World World II; but the end of World War II saw the birthing of a new nation...

Today, the "Shelley House" has an appraised value of $13,400.
Consulting an inflation calculator (God Bless the Internet), we learn that a house valued at $5,700 in 1945 would be worth $76,899 in 2017 dollars; and yet the Labadie Avenue property at 4600 is appraised by the city of St. Louis for $13,400 in 2016. 

We call this the Visible Black Hand of Economics and the precise reason why restrictive covenants existed: to protect white people, their posterity and their civilization from the consequences of blacks. 

As we move further into the future and the consequences of the great American experiment to prove race really is a social construct fails magnificently, the horrific reality becomes clear: the racists were right all along.
