For years, government officials and assorted experts have emphasised the problem of racism in education. Even as British society has become palpably less racist, more and more policy, advice and guidance has descended on schools. There has been much focus on both the spectre of racist playground incidents and the low attainment of black pupils. And, in recent years, such official interference has actually worked to re-instate racial thinking.
In celebration of Earth Day this Saturday, let’s review how the Sierra Club sold its soul and screwed the Earth for a $100 million donation. They must hate themselves for it, so why shouldn’t we hate them, too?
After Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act began dumping millions of Third-Worlders on the country, the Sierra Club talked of little else besides reducing immigration.
In 1970, the club adopted a resolution complaining that the country’s growing population was polluting the “air, water and land” — to the point that “our very survival (is) threatened.”
In 1978, the Sierra Club adopted a resolution urging Congress to “conduct a thorough examination of U.S. immigration laws,” noting that the United States, Canada and Australia were the only countries admitting “more than a handful of permanent immigrants.”
In 1980, the club dropped its promotion of birth control, in order to focus on immigration. “It is obvious,” the club said, “that the numbers of immigrants the United States accepts affects our population size and growth rate,” even more than “the number of children per family.”
In 1989, the club’s Population Report expressly called for reducing the number of immigrants.
In 1990, the club’s grassroots leaders voted overwhelmingly to launch a major national campaign on the immigration problem.
Would any of this be of interest to an alleged environmental group? It used to be — until the early 2000s.
That was when the Sierra Club was given $100 million by hedge fund billionaire David Gelbaum in exchange for never opposing immigration again. The club said, How dare you ask us to abandon our principles for filthy lucre!
Just kidding! It said, SURE! Did you bring the check?
1) Millions more people are tromping through our country;
2) The new people do not share Americans’ love of nature and cleanliness; and
3) We’re not allowed to criticize them.
WASHINGTON – Immigrant-rights advocates are calling for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers to not enter courthouses to arrest individuals living in the country illegally, arguing that such arrests violate their constitutional rights.
In a joint letter to a California judge last month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and DHS Secretary John Kelly noted that “some jurisdictions, including the State of California and many of its largest counties and cities, have enacted statutes and ordinances designed to specifically prohibit or hinder ICE from enforcing immigration law by prohibiting communication with ICE, and denying requests by ICE officers and agents to enter prisons and jails to make arrests.”
Neufeld apologized — twice — in Facebook posts on Thursday and Friday this week.
“I have to own my white privilege and my station in society. As a teacher of 25 years, I have no excuse. And intention is not enough,” he said.
He should apologize for the apology.
German-based skincare company Nivea was forced to pull an ad after leftists whined it was racist.
The ad was for a new “invisible” deodorant that promised not to stain clothing, but the slogan was, “White is purity.”
N.J. woman enraged by ‘fancy white people’ attacks man, Porsche with hammer: cops
A Newark woman enraged by “fancy white people” is being sought for allegedly attacking a man with a hammer and smashing his Porsche and boat at a gas station in what Virginia police described as a racially-motivated attack Saturday.
Angela M. Jones, 26, faces potential hate crime charges after allegedly beating the man at an Exxon Station off Interstate 95 in Caroline County, Va., according to WTVR.com.
Jones has not been located or arrested as of 10:45 a.m. Tuesday, according to a spokesman for the New Jersey State Police.
One such chaotic example is the ever-increasing racist rhetoric being directed at white people. Such slogans as “All White People Are Racist”, “The White Man is a Devil” and “No Whites Allowed” have gone mainstream and are circulating the physical and digital networks of western society. With the rise of the criminal ideology, Black Lives Matter, white people as a whole are now being viewed through a malformed lens.
Brittany Pettibone and her twin sister, Nicole, are very active on Gab. If you’re a member, they are worth following. We have invitations that will speed up the process if you’re interested in joining Gab – just ask.
It seems that you can’t get through a day on social media, or watching news programs, without hearing the words racist, bigot, sexist, homophobe, or some other offensive term, the use of which has become so routine as to render its usage meaningless. I’ve read threads on Facebook that begin with a poster telling us how much he detested the policies of the Obama administration. Within minutes, someone is sure to counter with accusations of racism. It’s an effective tactic, because such a label strikes terror in the hearts and minds of decent people. (Genuine bigots are not bothered by such accusations because they recognize the accuracy of the charge and may even be proud of it.) It also has the effect of controlling the dialogue in a given situation. Putting people on defense forces them to assure their accusers how open-minded and fair they are, rather than debating the issue in question. The accuser is on offense, the accused on defense.
‘The rose-coloured glasses are off’: Why experts, students suspect racism under-reported on campuses
So let’s see, one girl was upset about a Hip-Hop themed party where students imitated rappers or whatever they’re called and another girl was upset because students mocked her Halloween costume demands.
My God! It’s like Hitler’s Germany out there!
DH: So you’re not a fan of affirmative action?
VV: I’ll answer that with a question. Do you believe that using race as a factor in evaluating a person is a good way to operate?
Years of sensational coverage has made the ‘implicit bias’ test out to be a foolproof predictor of racist belief. The evidence strongly suggests otherwise.
One of the more pervasive assumptions of modern American society, particularly in my generation, is the notion that “everyone is racist,” “society” has made everyone racist, and—most importantly—much of this racism is “implicit” or “subconscious,” something that isn’t directly observable but nonetheless real.
“They’ve done tests,” people insist. “These tests show that you are more likely to have positive responses towards white faces and negative responses towards black faces. It’s been proven by science. You’re probably racist, too, even if you deny it.”
These “tests” have constituted a critical cornerstone of the modern progressive view of racism: where no actual racial animus can be found, liberals have often resorted to accusations of “unconscious” racism, pointing to alleged research that shows an alleged subliminal streak of racism deep within the hearts of us all.
Carmen Figueroa, a student at Hampshire College in Massachusetts, has pleaded not guilty to various charges of assault and battery stemming from a January 27 incident where she accused members of Central Maine Community College’s women’s basketball team of “culturally appropriating” their braided hairstyles. When the CMCC players did not remove the braids from their hair, Figueroa and another Hampshire student then proceeded to pull the hair of one of the players, started a fight, and stomped on a player who had been knocked to the ground. Figueroa also allegedly grabbed a CMCC player by the head and threw her to the ground before coaches broke up the fight.
At a carnival in Oakland over the weekend, hundreds of “teenagers” went on a rampage stealing everything they could get their hands on and attacking workers with bricks.
The Facebook post, quoting the pop star’s hit Irreplaceable, said Ashton would take the party “To the Left, to the Left.” It was removed Wednesday after the Vancouver chapter of Black Lives Matter tweeted at her that “Appropriating Black culture is not intersectional feminism.” Ashton, a vocal feminist and social justice advocate, was sensitive to the charge she wasn’t practicing intersectionality — which, simply put, is a version of feminism that recognizes the complexities race, class, ability and sexuality add to debates about gender equity.
It is a great wide world in which the strangest things bring people together. Two prominent feminists, from different political parties, one of whom is already a leader, the other seeking that status, have found themselves in the judgement court of the inquisitional Black Lives Matter branch plant in Canada. Just over a month ago, our pridefully feminist Prime Minister was left withering in the rhetorical wind from a blast issued by BLM Toronto’s megaphonic Yusra Khogali.
