Simple truths

It pains me to realize that many people seem so deluded as to believe obvious untruths.  It is undoubtedly so, however.  That being said, here is another short list of obvious truths that seem to escape of liberal/progressive/socialist, commie pinko enemies.

1.  There is no "rape culture" in America outside of Leftist enclaves like Hollyweird and Muslim majority communities.  In 2016, 95,730 rapes were reported in America, among a population of 323.1 million people.  That makes a rate of one in every 3,375 people raped, or 0.0296%.  The robbery rate that year was 102.8 per hundred thousand.  We don't talk about a "robbery culture", even though it is much more prevalent than rape.  And these statistics only include the rape of women.  It doesn't include the much larger number of rapes of incarcerated men.  We also notice that blacks and Latinos, who collectively comprise about one third of the population, perpetrate about half of all the rapes.  Please notice that the number of black women raped by white men has been unreportable for a decade - meaning the total number is less than ten per year.

2.  There is no institutional racism against blacks in America.  There is, of course, institutional racism against white men in favor of blacks.  We call it "affirmative action" and "preferential hiring" and "white privilege".  Blacks are disproportionately arrested for crimes because they disproportionately commit crimes.  Blacks are under represented in academia because blacks under perform academically.  Occam's razor says that blacks are dumb and violent, and therefore don't succeed.  Poverty doesn't cause crime, but crime does cause poverty.

3.  There is police brutality.  It is nowhere near the scale that the media makes it out to be.  There have always been bad cops.  There will always be bad cops.  It's the nature of people to be imperfect.  However, the fact that black thugs who try to kill cops get beaten or shot by those same cops is not a coincidence.  With very few exceptions (when the cop should be tried for murder or battery), if you want to survive an interaction with a police office, be calm, be polite, move slowly, keep your hands in view at all times, and do what the officer says.  Remember - a police officer is not a person, he's a loaded weapon.  Be nice and polite to the gun, and it won't bark at you.

4.  Black lives matter.  No they don't - not to blacks.  More than half of all the murders in America in 2016 were committed by blacks, largely against other blacks, who comprise 13% of the population.  And that's with a relatively large percentage of black males already incarcerated.  Fun fact - one in three black men have felony convictions.

5.  Only whites can be prejudiced.  This is obviously stupid.  The most racist, prejudiced people I've ever encountered in America are the blacks.  They're pretty blatant about it.  The knock out game is real, and ongoing.  If whites were really as prejudiced, bigoted, and violent as the media claims, then blacks would never dare to speak.  They'd be too beaten down and afraid for their jobs, homes, and lives.


Problems with dark matter

Warning:  Physics ahead.

Dark matter is postulated to solve the 'missing matter problem.'  That is the problem?  There's not enough observable matter in the universe to make the observed rotation of galaxies work.  You see, spiral galaxies spin as if they were pinwheels, with things furthest from the center moving fastest.  Or, if you prefer, as if the stars were dots painted onto a round sheet of plastic that was then spun about its center on a pin.

Stars shouldn't do that in real life.  All theories of gravity hold that stars in the center of a galaxy should move much more quickly than the stars half way out, which in turn rotate faster than the stars at the edge.  But this isn't what happens.  So, there must be a whole bunch of missing, invisible matter in a giant cloud around the galaxy, making the stars spin with the enormous total gravity.  Dark matter doesn't interact with regular matter at all except through gravity.  It may or may not react with itself in unknown ways, but we can't really know.

Except that this doesn't work.  Sure, it explains the problems, but it creates new ones.  If the dark matter is there, and it has gravity, should it be clumping together into larger and larger lumps?  Shouldn't there be dark matter stars and planets, acting darkly and suspiciously?  Shouldn't we see the effects of these clumps?  What happens when a dark black hole tears entire solar systems apart? 

We don't see any of that.  Apparently, dark matter also has some property that keeps it at the density of fog, never congealing or clumping at all.  Could dark matter have some sort of universal monopole property, where every particle is repelled by every other particle, even as they are attracted by gravity?  If the force were less than gravity, gravity would eventually overcome it, and dark foam would form, possibly like pumice.  If the repelling force is greater than the attraction of gravity, then we would expect the dark matter to be evenly spread everywhere, except where the extra attraction of normal matter might possibly gather together a slightly denser fog.  But this wouldn't be enough to count as the five-sixths of all matter that dark matter is supposed to be.

It's really quite simple.  If something is affected by gravity, then that something should form clumps.  Dark matter, as postulated, should forms clumps on a large scale, but not on a small scale.  No means for this distinction is postulated.  Alternately, dark matter objects do exist in profusion (5/6 of all matter, remember), but we have never seen their effects anywhere, because reasons.

What happens at the bottom?

Warning:  This is another physics post.

What happens inside a black hole?  According to standard theory, any particle falling into a black hole stops experiencing time at the event horizon, as it accelerates up to and then past the speed of light.  It's possible that particles experience negative or sideways time - the theories are inconclusive, and we can't have any experiential evidence for obvious reasons.  The particle then continues to accelerate, reaching infinite speed and infinite density at the central singularity.

According to my theory, the particle accelerates up to the speed of light - and then apparently stops accelerating.  There is no more source energy for the particle to gain speed, and the gravity gradient at the event horizon bends from a 90 degree vertical to a flat, zero degree horizontal at that point.  The particle would maintain its speed, and still wouldn't experience time, essentially acting like a normal photon.  The particle would zoom towards the center, eventually reaching and interacting with the particles already there.  Presumably, the forces that prevent particles from sharing states outside a black hole would still prevent them from sharing states inside of one, so at the center is not a singularity, but something like a Planck star.

Unless a negative energy state is possible.  Then things get more interesting, because the energy gradient wouldn't bottom out, and particles could accelerate past light speed to ludicrous speed (which is, naturally, plaid).  This speed isn't infinite, however, because the particles translate from our normal, real-number universe into the complex plane universe.  They would then accelerate out at relatively random speeds and energies into the i plane, while seeming to form a singularity in the R plane.

Which one of these conditions is true?  It's impossible to tell, really, without experimental verification.  To which I say, "It might be dangerous.  You go first."
