The event, scheduled for Monday and sponsored by the student association at Trent University in Ontario, has been accused by some of being “inflammatory” and racist against whites.
However, an event organizer has pushed back against those accusations, saying the gathering is about “diversity, inclusion and conversations about how we can all work together to help achieve racial justice.”
Senior Aaron Epps, president of The Black Student Movement, said Black students often struggle to adapt to the environment of predominantly white institutions like UNC, especially if they come from a majority Black community like he did.
“It’s just a different pool at UNC,” he said. “It’s hard to navigate a very, very inherently institutionalized white space.”
He’s being forced to attend UNC?
From Barbara Kay at MercatorNet:
The state of Delaware is poised to adopt what is known as “Regulation 225.” Approved both by the Delaware State Education Association and Gov. John Carney, Regulation 225 would safeguard children’s “protected characteristics,” such as gender, age, race, sexual orientation and gender identity. Section 7.4(1) of 225’s Prohibition of Discrimination Code states, “All students enrolled in a Delaware public school may self-identify gender or race, which is maintained in the school.”
Gender isn’t news. But race? Are they really going there? Yes, they apparently are.
Big Pharma must be pretty pleased with this upward trend, since kids who present as trans and are encouraged to transition will spend a lifetime on hormones. That’s nice for pharmaceutical companies specializing in hormones. At the moment, there isn’t a hormone for skin darkening. But what if there was? If I were an amoral Big Pharma executive, I would be asking myself what it would take to create a race “chicken,” a hormone-like easy-popping substance that turned your skin dark and kept it dark as long as you kept popping it. And one that, unlike cross-hormones, didn’t render you sterile. More.
Reality check: Will fluidity cause more entitlement claims and demands for accommodation or fewer? Class, discuss.

At a reception marking Black History Month, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told Canadians to recognize racism and unconscious bias against black people in his country.
I am a 69 year-old proud American who happens to be black. The American Left (Democrats, Hollywood and fake news media) exploit Black History Month as an opportunity to further their lie that America is eternally racist and a hellhole for blacks. BHM should feature the truth that America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to go for it; regardless of race, color, creed or gender. Blacks are only 12% of the U.S. population. Therefore, black millionaires and billionaires like Oprah, Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Kaepernick and countless others confirm my point; white America made these blacks extremely wealthy.
And yet, sadly, most millennial blacks believe the Left’s lie that their opportunities for success are limited. They believe white cops murder black men on sight. They believe white America is obsessed with conceiving dirty tricks to keep blacks down.
Suicides, alcohol poisoning – and drug overdoses fueled in part by the opioid crisis – are the leading causes of rising death rates among white people in California, according to a new study that found the trend is widespread in rural areas of the state.

“Scientists invented race as an explanation for social inequality,” she said. Later, she reaffirmed this and said “there is a whole system designed to keep black children from succeeding, again and again.”
Roberts offered her insight to the overarching question. “What I’ve realized is it’s not so much about … thinking black children are inferior,” she said, “It’s about not wanting to confront white privilege and power.”
Last week we covered the story of a formal Police investigation being launched over the alleged hate crime that recently occurred at Boston College. A crime that was nothing more than the placement of a single poster on campus with the words “Don’t apologize for being white.” Seemingly inspired by this development and the overblown reaction to it. The infamous trolls over at 4chan’s politically incorrect board have just launched a new widespread campaign set to take this poster idea to the next level.
Thanks to the CBC’s Terry Milewski, we now know federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh doesn’t think it’s his job to denounce Canadian Sikhs who glorify suspected Air India bomber, and fellow Sikh, Talwinder Singh Parmar.
Why we know this — with Singh absurdly accusing Milewski of racism for asking him the question — is a case study in Canadian political correctness run amok.
Yes, the black community has a problem, but it is of its own making, and too often whites are the victims of a dysfunctional black community. America has lavishly poured billions of taxpayer’s dollars in recent decades to improve public education, outreach, and equal opportunity programs such as Affirmative Action for blacks in inner cities, but to what avail? We have stepped aside and watched silently as city after city, once safe and prosperous, became Third World outposts after decades of corrupt black Democratic leadership. They enriched themselves with unkept promises while the rest of the population floundered.
The monument — primarily concrete and marble, but with gold in the base and a gold figure atop — had been tagged with black lettering, but also with what appeared to be splashes of red and black paint.
The video has racked up nearly 5 million views in its first 24 hours – and shockingly has over 350,000 “thumbs up” votes verses only 30,000 “thumbs down” votes at the time of this writing.
Those 30,000 racists need to be banned!
They consider themselves Arabs or something. Bantu people are their traditional slaves. (“Ibrahim says Somali Americans have been hesitant to claim black identities in the past, because they associate being black with being powerless.”)
Re. the Justine Damond killing in Minneapolis:
“He is extremely nervous … he is a little jumpy … he doesn’t really respect women, the least thing you say to him can set him off,” Mr Miller said. “When they say a policeman shot an Australian lady I thought uh, oh but then when they said who it was I was like, ‘OK.’
He has little respect for women (well, duh – Ed.), he has little respect for blacks and kids,” said Mr Miller, who is African-American. “He has an air like you just couldn’t really be around him.” (Emphases mine – Ed.)
The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is entangled in a new controversy only a week after the public lashed out at officials for refusing to release video footage of crimes over fears the videos would incite racism.
Al Gore was in Australia Thursday promoting his new video, “An Inconvenient Sequel,” the follow-up to Gore’s 2006 “An Inconvenient Truth.” While speaking to attendees of the EcoCity World Summit in Melbourne, the former vice president compared climate change advocates to those who worked to end slavery, promote civil rights and women’s suffrage, battled apartheid in South Africa, and worked for gay rights. He said those activists had also experienced “ferocious resistance” to their cause.
Does he realize he’s talking about Republicans?
