The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the 109 year old civil rights organization, will not renew the contract of its president, Cornell Brooks, and will “recast” its mission by conducting “a systemwide and strategic revisioning process that will ensure that the NAACP can address these 21st century challenges.”
Reading between the lines isn’t difficult; the NAACP will become more like Black Lives Matter and less like a mainstream organization dedicated to advancing the economic interests of blacks.
A blogger for the American Mathematical Society (AMS) posted a racist, sexist screed in which she bluntly tells white, heterosexual males in the field that they are “taking up room that should go to someone else” and they should voluntarily make way for minority mathematicians as repayment for their historical oppression.
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Yale University dean has been placed on leave over offensive reviews she made on Yelp, including one in which she refers to customers of a local restaurant as “white trash.”
Pierson College Dean June Chu issued a public apology Saturday after reviews from her personal Yelp account began circulating at the Ivy League school.
Pierson Head Stephen Davis sent an email Thursday informing members of the residential college that Chu had been placed on leave after he discovered there were numerous “reprehensible posts,” not the two he had been led to believe existed.
“What takes priority,” Kay wrote for the National Post, “the right of artists to extend their imagination to the entire human experience, or the right of historically marginalized communities to protect themselves from possible misrepresentation? Personally, I land on the free speech side.”
There has been a raft of apologies over this latest petty outrage.
One thing is certain, it illustrates the general cowardice of our PC chattering class.
Is it any wonder they consider criticism of Islam to be the greatest sin of all?
Officers tried to stop the car on Park Avenue about 5 p.m., but the driver kept going, leading the officers on a brief chase, traveling the wrong way on Fairfield Avenue and hitting several other cars, police said.
Eventually the the car stopped, and as officers approached and tried to take the driver into custody, the driver sped in reverse and hit one of the officers, pinning him beneath the car, police officials said. A second officer opened fire, hitting both the driver and a front-seat passenger were hit, state police said. They did not say how many rounds were fired.
Hal Niedzviecki has resigned as editor of the Writers’ Union of Canada magazine after sparking outrage with an opinion piece titled “Winning the Appropriation Prize” in an issue devoted to indigenous writing.
In it, he states that he doesn’t believe in “cultural appropriation.” “In my opinion, anyone, anywhere, should be encouraged to imagine other peoples, other cultures, other identities.” Niedzviecki, who has been the editor of Write for about five years, later wrote: “Set your sights on the big goal: Win the Appropriation Prize.”
In the same editorial, Niedzviecki goes on to note that most Canadian literature is written by people who are “white and middle-class,” and exhorts those same white, middle-class writers to look outside of their own community and write about “what you don’t know” in an effort to “explore the lives of people who aren’t like you.”
If you’re a Democrat, and your program is wealth redistribution—with a big cut for yourself as a ruling middleman—it turns out that racism is a much better rationale than inequality for robbing selected Peter to pay collective Paul. Inequality, as New York mayor Bill de Blasio ruefully found, is too fuzzy a cause to fire up most people with righteous indignation, since American liberty has always meant that people free to use their different talents and virtues in their own way will arrive at widely varying outcomes. But racism—oh, racism is the original American sin. It is so obviously, wickedly, unjust as to get the blood boiling in blue states and cities across the land.
“Let’s celebrate 5 de Mayo by going to Dolores Park and beating the shit out of white people, in the spirit of La Batalla de Pueblo,” tweeted Prieto, who later locked his Twitter account. The illegal immigrant student referred to a battle in Mexico in which the Mexican army defeated French occupiers.
“After celebrating the 70th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in April, baseball was just reminded of how far it still has to go,” claims the Huffington Post after Baltimore Orioles center fielder Adam Jones claimed people were calling him nigger. What a pile of horseshit. If a fan yelled that word from their seat at a baseball game, the only people not attacking the guy would be busy having a stroke. A quick check-in with people who were at the game confirms our suspicions. Jones is just another social justice warrior feeding off the myth that America is a racist hellhole. When the San Francisco 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick was all over the news last year for taking a knee during the national anthem, Jones jumped on the bandwagon, claiming he goes through similar pain because “baseball is a white man’s sport.” This got traction despite the fact that one in four pro baseball players are born outside the U.S. and a good third of all players are Hispanic.
It wouldn’t be Saturday night in Jacksonville without a good old-fashioned brawl. On April 23rd, the city witnessed a 60-person royal rumble at the Orange Park shopping mall that ended with five “youths” being arrested. And of course when I say “youths,” I’m using the common journalistic euphemism for black kids.
The student government of the University of Wisconsin-Madison unanimously passed on Wednesday a divestment resolution targeting companies operating in many countries that included an amendment specifically about Israel.
First off, he’s black. He can’t shut up about it. He’s one of those latter-day American blacks who has his head so far up his ass sniffing his blackness, he fails to see all the sunshine this white world has to offer him. Even Hitler wasn’t as obsessed with being Aryan as Kori is with being black. After all, every once in a while, Hitler ate vegetables and played with his dog.
Consider impact of systemic racism before sentencing black offenders, Canadian judges urged
Canadian judges are being urged to take systemic racism into account before sentencing black criminals, similar to the special consideration often given to aboriginals who break the law.
Defence lawyers behind the push say asking judges to consider how historic discrimination and marginalization may have influenced their clients’ behaviour is not meant to be a “get-out-of-jail-free” card; it simply gives judges a fuller picture of their clients before their fates are decided.
Representatives for Legal Aid Ontario say they plan to start nudging Ontario judges to use so-called “cultural assessments” in the near future and will set aside some money for test cases.
How about a Bob Marley Aboriginal Healing Circle Tee Pee where the “victims” of their own criminal activity can pass around some of Justin’s weed?
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.
