    The Social Memo ^ | 3/25/17 | Aurelius
    April Hathcock, an attorney and NYU librarian, argues that "whiteness... has permeated every aspect of librarianship" and must be "dismantled." Her article, titled "White Librarianship in Blackface: Diversity Initiatives in LIS," offers ways to "correct for whiteness" in the field of librarians. "It is no secret that librarianship has traditionally been and continues to be a profession dominated by whiteness," Ms. Hathcock begins her piece. "In this article, I use “whiteness” to refer not only to the socio-cultural differential of power and privilege that results from categories of race and ethnicity;" she writes. "It also stands as a marker for...

    Bartenders at a West Village hot spot served up discrimination — with a liberal twist — refusing to serve a customer because he was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, according to a lawsuit. Greg Piatek, 30, an accountant from Philadelphia, claims he was snubbed and eventually 86’d by workers at The Happiest Hour on West 10th Street over his conservative fashion statement, popularized by Donald Trump on the campaign trail, he told The Post. “Anyone who supports Trump — or believes what you believe — is not welcome here!

    A prominent Christian group in Nigeria has accused U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry of being “discriminatory...and divisive” during a recent trip to the West African country. Kerry was in Nigeria on Monday and Tuesday and was hosted by the Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III, the most senior Islamic cleric in the country.

    When he didn’t get an interview for another position, Butcher said he asked his manager, who questioned Butcher’s level of training. When Butcher requested training opportunities, he said he was denied. He was noticing an ugly trend. Not only was he not afforded an opportunity to interview for writing positions, those positions were being filled by his white colleagues. CNN vice president of communications Barbara Levin declined to comment. In addition to the race discrimination claim, Butcher, a devout Christian, also accuses the network of religious discrimination. Specifically, Butcher’s attorney Ed Buckley, said the suit alleges Butcher was offended by...

The U.S. Justice Department complaint, filed in Manhattan federal court on Wednesday, accused the bank of willfully violating the U.S. Fair Housing Act and the Equal Credit Opportunity Act between 2006 and 2009 and showing "reckless disregard" for the rights of at least 53,000 African-American and Hispanic borrowers. "We’ve agreed to settle these legacy allegations that...

Conway divulged her fears to other parents at the Elisabeth Morrow School in Englewood, NJ, on Thursday night, when her twins, George and Claudia, performed a concert with other students. Alicia Keys was also there to hear her goddaughter perform. Conway, who was Trump’s campaign manager, is moving to DC to be counselor to the president.

The poster, which took over 25 hours to make, included hand-painted hearts and the phrase “3,000 Lives Are Ended Each Day.” . . . Administrators also asked the students to refrain from using the word, “abortion,” in club material, in written or oral communications, or on social media. Administrators even went as far as asking students from the club to sign an agreement that would bar them from seeking legal assistance to protect their right to express...

    When planning December office parties that coincide with the Christmas season, it is a challenge for event organizers to make celebrations "all-inclusive." Many employers may wish to offer a traditional Christmas or holiday party if they know this approach makes sense for their employees and their organization, notes Mark Kessler, Ph.D., professor of multicultural women’s and gender studies at Texas Woman’s University. However, not all faith traditions have holidays in December, and not everyone identifies with a particular faith tradition. With this in mind, professor Kessler offers two approaches for those who want to make all employees feel included during...

The other team went into their formation to defend against the punt. Then somebody noticed that the man set to kick the punt was black. "Fake!" one of the defenders cried out. That cry was immediately echoed by others, and the defending team changed their formation, to guard against the kicker either running with the ball or throwing it. But in fact he punted. Why did anyone think he was not...

    Open auditions are being held for the hottest show on Broadway — but whites need not apply. Already the hottest ticket in town, rap-based musical “Hamilton” put out a casting call, seeking “NON-WHITE men and women” to audition for its Broadway run and touring companies. Producers are also looking for actors “ages 20s to 30s” who can sing and rap — but “no prior theater experience necessary,” the ad says. The seemingly prejudicial race and age poster flies in the face of the culturally diverse cast that has helped “Hamilton” surge to success and garner stellar reviews. The modern musical...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The hottest show on Broadway has won praise for its groundbreaking casting of black and Latino performers, but now, “Hamilton” may have run afoul of the strict New York City Human Rights Law. As CBS2’s Tony Aiello reported, the controversy was sparked by a casting notice posted by the producers of “Hamilton,” which specifically seeks “non-white” performers. One critic said “Hamilton” takes a story that “valorizes dead white guys” and replaces it with black, Latino and multi-ethnic performers playing America’s founding fathers. But as the blockbuster musical looks to expand to other cities, the casting notice...

About 40 new students plus about a dozen returning students took part, and about $16,000 was set aside in the university’s...

    A majority of black Americans say that at some point in their lives they’ve experienced discrimination or were treated unfairly because of their race or ethnicity, but blacks who have attended college are more likely than those without any college experience to say so, according to a recent Pew Research Center survey. About eight in ten blacks with at least some college experience (81%) say they’ve faced discrimination or been treated unfairly because of their race or ethnicity, compared with 59% of blacks who have never attended college. These differences also extend to more specific incidents of racial discrimination. For...

    Equal Employment Opportunity Commission: It might be discrimination or something You know that government can’t restrict your speech. Officially. But they can in all kinds of practical ways, just as they can do lots of other things to you without ever really taking an official action against you. Take the famous “Don’t Tread On Me” cap. Congress will never pass a law that says you can’t wear that cap, just because politicians may not like what the cap stands for. Constitutionally, Congress cannot do so. But if you think that means the government can’t come down on you for wearing...

    It was about a year ago when Steve Horner told young proprietors of the Wet Republic Ultra Pool at the MGM Grand that he had just transitioned to a woman and should be allowed to pay the woman’s price of $20 to get into the pool party. They looked him up and down and saw no signs that the person stood before them ever had any intention of being a woman for anything other than not paying the $33 entry fee for a man.

    The NCAA on Friday said cities looking to host future championship games must submit details by Aug. 12 about how they will protect participants from discrimination, a move that could hurt North Carolina's chances of landing future games. The announcement came one day after the NBA said it was moving the 2017 All-Star Weekend from Charlotte over a controversial North Carolina law known as House Bill 2. Cities that have already been awarded games will face a separate questionnaire deadline, which will be determined later, the NCAA said. [Snip] Cities bidding for games now must complete a questionnaire from the...

    If there were a contest for the most stupid idea in politics, my choice would be the assumption that people would be evenly or randomly distributed in incomes, institutions, occupations or awards, in the absence of somebody doing somebody wrong. Political crusades, bureaucratic empires and lucrative personal careers as grievance mongers have been built on the foundation of that assumption, which is almost never tested against any facts. A recent article in the New York Times saw as a problem the fact that females are greatly under-represented among the highest rated chess players. Innumerable articles, TV stories and political outcries...

    I've used a couple of dating sites in my time, and went to college with an active dating and hookup scene. Somehow, it is socially acceptable for non-thin girls to think a fit, in-shape male who happens to be short is "too short" for them, or that the girl is too good for them. Height can't be controlled at all and therefore, like race (whatever race tho, not just blacks but whites, reds, browns, yellows too), does not reflect one's values or personality traits. Weight can be easily controlled; fat girls are usually too lazy to go to the gym,...

    An elite Manhattan school is teaching white students as young as 6 that they’re born racist and should feel guilty benefiting from “white privilege,” while heaping praise and cupcakes on their black peers. Administrators at the Bank Street School for Children on the Upper West Side claim it’s a novel approach to fighting discrimination, and that several other private New York schools are doing it, but even liberal parents aren’t buying it. They complain the K-8 school of 430 kids is separating whites in classes where they’re made to feel awful about their “whiteness,” and all the “kids of color”...

    Reverse discrimination is alive and well in the United States, judging by what transpired at the Supreme Court last Thursday and a bill that recently passed New York’s state assembly.In a 4 to 3 ruling, the court upheld the University of Texas’s affirmative action program to admit minorities over similarly or more qualified white applicants.Abigail Noel Fisher, who is white, had sued over her rejection in 2008.  Her case reached the Supreme Court in 2013, was remanded to the Fifth Circuit, and re-emerged this term.  Writing for the majority, Justice Kennedy denied her claim that the university’s race-conscious policy violates...
