I don’t wish to see catcalling made a hate crime either, that said you just know the head-space her bent stance is coming from. God forbid you’d want to target “minority” rape cultures. Best to keep blaming white men.
Are you guilty of microaggressions? Or are you just woke? Life gets confusing when people in positions of prestige and authority – college presidents and professors, media, and Democrat politicians – denigrate some races on a routine basis. Fortunately, an academic – a sociologist! – has stepped up with a footnoted guide to tell you whether something is racist or just woke.
While one of my legal clients (a 17 year old teen) was being interviewed by one of the most competitive colleges in the country he was asked why he was following Alex Jones on Twitter. My client, a teenager expected to talk about his stellar grades, top test scores, amazing extracurricular activities and volunteer work, but the interviewer focused on who he was connecting with online. My client had never “liked” or re-tweeted any of Mr. Jones’ content. His alleged “transgression” was that he followed Mr. Jones on Twitter. That was it.
Subsequently, the student’s parents engaged me about this troubling situation. Immediately, I performed a digital background check on the admissions interviewer and found her to be a Bernie Sanders follower. Interestingly, Mr. Jones’ is not a big fan of Mr. Sanders. To each his own; however, political discrimination has no place during the college admissions process and I told the college’s admissions director that the situation must be properly resolved immediately. The college didn’t want any negative publicity about this matter so it quickly resolved the situation to my client’s satisfaction.
This example demonstrates why teens need to not just audit their digital profiles and lock down their social media accounts during the college application process, they must also ensure that their web surfing history is not collected by an admissions committee because innocent digital activity is being used to reject students from their dream colleges. A teen’s web search history may include topics such as politics, religion, health status, creed, etc. According to The New York Times, some colleges are trying to buy these data points from the organizations that provide the SAT or ACT who obtain this data directly from student test takers.
“For people who are Indigenous who are coming into city hall, who may have been in residential schools, or their moms or grandmas or dads or grandpas were in residential schools, this statue is a physical manifestation of that painful colonial history that they themselves or their families have experienced,” Helps said in an interview.
Anti-white racism is endemic among liberals. For liberals, it is permissible to show disdain for white people in a way that would be totally, totally unacceptable to show for blacks, Hispanics, or people of other “colors” of the liberal rainbow.
This is clearer than ever now that we have been exposed to the ravings of The New York Times’ latest hire, editorial writer Sarah Jeong.
Read this entire thread. This was not a “one off”.
I decided to wait until now to talk about Sarah Jeong because I didn’t want to be part of the “outrage mob” on either side.
‘A dignified alternative’: the special cart for homeless people to keep their stuff
This ought to go over big in San Francisco.
It’s a challenge often overshadowed by the more pressing concerns of homelessness: where to store your belongings.
But since 2016, a group in western Canada has been designing a prototype vehicle aimed at offering those who live on the streets a better alternative to shopping carts when it comes to transporting their worldly goods.
“Part of the reality of being homeless is that you need somewhere to put your goods,” said Devon Siebenga of Metro Community, the church in Kelowna behind the initiative. “A lot of our people spend most of their days worrying about, or trying to take care of, or tracking down their stuff.”
What a display of arrogant classism! It demeans the creativity and resourcefulness of the homeless!
Charity workers raped homeless children while working in stricken countries, MPs have been told.
Corinna Csaky, a development consultant who previously worked for Save the Children, revealed girls as young as 14 were being abused by groups of men at peacekeeping camps, with some filming them on their mobile phones.
The children are often “on the edge of society”, said Ms Csaky, whose research has suggested significant levels of abuse of boys and girls by aid workers and peacekeepers occurred in emergencies.
Melinda Gates – Claim to fame? Married rich white guy.
Melinda Gates says she will preference women and non-whites over men and white people, specifically for these immutable characteristics that have nothing inherently to do with business success.
Melinda Gates has decided to enter the venture capital world by sending her money to people based at least partly on their sex and skin color, she said in a recent Fortuneinterview.
“It’s been incredibly disappointing to watch how few women-led businesses are getting funded,” Gates said. “Ultimately, if we want more innovation and better products, we’ve got to put more money behind women and minorities. That wasn’t happening, so I decided to step in and see what I could do to help a little bit.”
