You can already see some politically incorrect numbers.

AP CS student demographics from the first link in the summary.

- 31.4% Asian
- 3.8% Black
- 8.4% Hispanic
- 0.3% Native American
- 50.5% non-Hispanic White

Compare to current US demographics from the Census Bureau

- 5.3% Asian
- 13.2% Black
- 17.1% Hispanic
- 1.2% Native American
- 62.6% non-Hispanic White

It looks like every race except Asian is under-represented.
Is this evidence of systemic oppression by USA's Asian-American overlords?
Are White people so hateful they'd rather cut themselves to spite the Black and Brown people?

socialism is found in scandinavia, belgium, netherlands, france, and the former western-germany

In what way? Is private enterprise disallowed? Do workers own the means of production?
If not, how is it socialism?

It would seem to me that you are merely co-opting the success created by capitalism, and casting the social welfare policies funded by the wealth generated by capitalism as the new definition of "socialism". A common mistake.

As for the encoding timestamp, that's simple. It was re-encoded for streaming after it was uploaded, as Youtube typically does for most video formats. Primary Youtube servers are located in California, UTC-8. Ukraine is UTC+2, a difference of 10 hours. The encoding timestamp of 19:xx hours on Youtube servers corresponds to early morning in Ukraine the next day.

Russian news sites were just yesterday trying to insinuate that Putin's presidential plane took the same flight path as MH17, and that this was a botched assassination by Kiev. Of course, a quick glance at a map will reveal that a plane flying from Brazil to Poland to Russia never even comes close to Eastern Ukraine.

This guy compares wealth in his argument, yet he seems to make a conclusion about income. Does he use the terms interchangeably to both mean income, or does he conflate the one with the other to obscure the differences between wealth and income? For instance, you can earn $35k/year and live frugally, not take out huge loans/mortgages and have 100000x more wealth than another person earning the same salary but made different choices.

Does that happen because open-minded people will tend to form more inclusive groups AND perform better, or because switching up sexual orientation and skin color makes people perform better? That is, do inclusiveness and higher performance merely coincide together with the third variable of open-mindedness, or does inclusiveness itself trigger higher performance?
