They are encouraging everyone to #CurbYourConsumerism for the holidays. Instead of buying, consider donating to Black organizations in the names of loved ones as their holiday gifts. If you must buy, #BuyBlack.

What? “Woke” campus faces grubby money woes?

From Patti Zarling at Education Drive:

Colleges and universities throughout the U.S. are seeing a drop in enrollment in recent years, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Enrollment dropped by 4% from 2010 to 2014 in degree-granting institutions, and the agency says that from 2014 to 2025 the number of students under age 25 enrolling in college will jump 13 percent, compared with 18 percent for students 25 or older as the size of high school graduating classes grows smaller.

That means higher ed institutions likely will see a dip in income. In Oberlin’s case, a group of trustees tasked with examining finances found the prestigious school relies too heavily on cash from gifts, and does not presently draw enough funding from charging students for tuition or room and board. More.

Reality check: But maybe Oberlin isn’t teaching skills the world needs. Anyone remember the Oberlin Klan hoax of 2013?

The College Fix reported on Monday that Oberlin College, once named the 3rd “most liberal college in America,” was shocked by an alleged sighting of a “KKK figure,” wearing a robe and hood on campus.

Although there were no cell phone pictures or videos to corroborate the story, the “KKK figure” was reportedly spotted by someone in the early morning hours near the college’s African Heritage House.

Oberlin officials immediately cancelled all classes after hearing news of the alleged sighting.

Which turned out to be someone wearing a blanket.

If it really is hard to get people to pay to learn how to be useless and helpless, perhaps there’s hope after all.

Self-Righteous Violence

If you’re even barely intelligent and mildly educated, you’d realize that ideas such as “guilt by association” and “two wrongs make a right” are commonly accepted logical fallacies. One needn’t be particularly bright, nor even fully pubescent, to grasp this.

But for growing swaths of the pro-globalist—and therefore the unwittingly pro-corporate, pro-capitalist, and pro-banker—radical left, even “two wrongs make a right” is no longer sufficient. For them, it’s now “Commit the first wrong based on the theoretical possibility that a second wrong will be committed if you don’t hit first.”

Epic Fail: The NFL Owners Try Bribing The Protesting Players

Faced with what amounts to a revolt from the protesting players on the one hand and the fans outraged at what they see as blatant disrespect for flag and country, the NFL owners decided to pursue several compromises, all of which failed…so now, they’ve resorted to what amounts to race based bribery.

Prof calls for ‘Black Xmas’ to ‘disrupt’ ‘white capitalism’

A California State University-Los Angeles professor is urging Americans to participate in a “Black Xmas” by divesting from “white corporations” and fighting “White Capitalism.”

In her op-ed for The Los Angeles Sentinel, Melina Abdullah, a Black Lives Matter activist and the chair of the school’s Department of Pan-African Studies, explains that “Black Xmas” is “an economic divestment from White corporations and an investment in building Black community through support for Black community organizations and businesses.”

Does that work both ways?

4chan Launches “It’s Ok To Be White” Campaign, Causing Mass Outrage WorldWide

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.

Glamour’s unworthy ‘Women of the Year’

Glamour Magazine just announced its 2017 “Women of the Year” awardees, whom they describe as “game changers, rule breakers, and trailblazers.” Perhaps some recipients are changing the world — though not all for the better — but nothing is changing at Glamour. The magazine continues its tradition of using this award to honor women who advance an extreme, leftist political agenda, while ignoring every woman with right-of-center views. The big question is, will this be the year that its readers decide enough is enough?

Kaepernick Seeks NFL Owners’ Cell Phone Records, Depositions To Prove Collusion

 

The filing, which demands an arbitration hearing on the matter, says the NFL and its owners “have colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick’s leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States.”

Employment rights?!
