People have the right to an opinion , but it looks like sometimes it would be best if they kept it for themselves, as complete nonsense just hit national headlines.
As Conservative Tribune reported , Law School Professor Alice Ristroph has determined that the total eclipse of the sun due to occur on Monday will fail to affect enough black people. She details how the solar eclipse starts in Oregon, which is mostly white, and then cuts through pro-Trump states Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa and Missouri. “From Kansas, the eclipse goes to Missouri, still mostly bypassing black people,” she bloviated.
“On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will arrive mid-morning on the coast of Oregon,”
“The moon’s shadow will be about 70 miles wide, and it will race across the country faster than the speed of sound, exiting the eastern seaboard shortly before 3 p.m. local time. It has been dubbed the Great American Eclipse, and along most of its path, there live almost no black people.”
“Presumably, this [where people live] is not explained by the implicit bias of the solar system. It is a matter of population density, and more specifically geographic variations in population density by race, for which the sun and the moon cannot be held responsible. Still, an eclipse chaser is always tempted to believe that the skies are relaying a message.”
“The shadow of the moon doesn’t care where it falls or who lives below. And in certain respects, the federal government designed in our Constitution doesn’t care where people live, either. But perhaps the strange path of the eclipse suggests a need for reorganization” Ristroph writes.
The Boston Globe also noted the problem with the eclipse, which in addition to being racist is apparently also Republican.
“Is the eclipse throwing shade at Clinton supporters? The path of ideal viewing spots for this month’s highly-anticipated total solar eclipse cuts overwhelmingly through places that voted for President Trump.”
Meanwhile, Twitter reacted by noting that it would hard for the eclipse to not cut across pro-Trump territory, since he won most of the electoral map.
