  • North Carolina parents protest forced ‘equity training’ on ‘structural racism’, ‘white privilege’

    Parents are outraged that a North Carolina school district which faces a nearly $6 million budget shortfall is paying for so-called “equity training” for school staff which includes topics such as “structural racism” and “white privilege.” Rockingham County Schools is paying OpenSource Strategic Consulting a flat fee of $45,000 and will reimburse up to $1,500 for travel expenses over the course of the training, according to a June 20 report by A.P. Dillon of American Lens. Rockingham County commissioners recently cut the county’s education allotment by $269,000. The district faces around a $5.7 million shortfall, the report said. The Rockingham...

    Republicans won special elections in Georgia and South Carolina, ending all talk of a referendum on Donald Trump's leadership. White men and women (and their allies) run the Democratic Party, including the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee. Yes, people who are 10 shades lighter than me run all of the committees. So are their consultants who receive big bucks to lose pivotal races like Tuesday’s special elections in Georgia and South Carolina. The races were supposed to be referendums on Donald Trump and his policies, but...
  • Mattel Gives Ken Doll A Makeover: Heavy-Set, Cornrows, Man Bun, 'Ethnically Diverse'

    06/20/2017 12:50:08 PM PDT · by drewh · 96 replies
    CBS Local– Mattel, the makers of the famous Barbie and Ken dolls, decided to shake up the Ken doll’s previous image. Typically he’d be portrayed as a “nice guy,” as Mattel put it, with wavy blonde hair and piercing blue eyes. He would have had hardly an ounce of body fat if scaled onto a real human. He’s the guy Barbie would take home to mom to compliment her pot roast and taste in cardigans. But he’s vanilla no more: Mattel has released a line of 15 new and improved Ken dolls. ADVERTISING Diverse beyond just their ethnicity, these new...

    Europe in 2017 is racked with uncertainty—the eurozone crises, the endless challenges of the European Union, national elections that resemble endless rounds of bullet-dodging. Yet even these events are insignificant compared with the deep tectonic shifts beneath the Continent’s politics, shifts that Europeans—and their allies—ignore at our peril. Throughout the migration crisis of recent years I traveled across the Continent, from the reception islands into which migrants arrive to the suburbs in which they end up and the chancelleries which encouraged them to come. For decades Europe had encouraged guest workers, and then their families, to come. As Germany’s Chancellor...

A second stab opens the left abdominal cavity. Nurettin B. then pulls out the ax. With the blunt side he hits her head, cracking her skull. Then he grabs the rope.

    The decision by Salem State trustees to choose a white male former state representative as the new president of the university has disappointed some faculty and ignited a simmering debate about the lack of gender and racial diversity in the top ranks of public higher education. To critics, the selection of John D. Keenan fit a troubling pattern of trustees at Massachusetts public colleges and universities turning to well-known local politicians to serve as presidents, rather than outside candidates with more experience in education.

    ISIS murders young girls and teenagers in Manchester and Prime Minister Theresa May can’t even say radical Islam, but instead refers to the fact that the terrorists will never win.

The tangos are terrorizing a society which has no clue on how to defeat evil and which believes that preaching kindness will pay peace dividends. It won’t. It never has.

    There was just one fatal shooting in the whole of 2015 THE stake-out lasted a week, but it paid off in the end. The tireless police of Kagoshima, a sleepy city in the far south of the country, watched the unlocked car day and night. It was parked outside a supermarket, and contained a case of malt beer. Finally, a passing middle-aged man decided to help himself. Five policemen instantly pounced, nabbing one of the city’s few remaining law-breakers. Japan’s cluttered streets are not always pretty but they are remarkably safe. Crime rates have been falling for 13 years. The...

    Sadly, this type of disciplinary action is just as common as it is outrageous, as girls of color face many overlapping barriers to succeed in school, the workplace and even in society. National data shows that Black girls are 5.5 times more likely to be suspended from school than white girls, and that rate balloons to 8.5 times in my own state of New Jersey.

    ESPN's audience saw a decrease in conservative leaning viewers between 2015 and 2016, according to a new analysis. Deep Root Analytics conducted the study which found that ESPN viewership in 34 of 43 television markets saw a decrease in Republican viewers between the years that kick-started the presidential campaigns and election. Multiple channels in the ESPN family saw their viewership move to the left of the political spectrum. While ESPN and ESPN 2 saw just a 5 percent and 10 percent decrease in Republican viewers respectively, ESPN News viewership became 36 percent less Republican. The decrease in conservative viewers was...

    If faculty cannot bail out on and disparage diversity training, students don't stand a chance: Resistance is futile. "I exhort you not to attend this training," Paul Griffiths, then a professor at the Duke Divinity School urged his colleagues via the campus e-mail. "Don't lay waste your time by doing so." "It'll be, I predict with confidence, intellectually flaccid: there'll be bromides, clichés, and amen-corner rah-rahs in plenty. When (if) it gets beyond that, its illiberal roots and totalitarian tendencies will show. Events of this sort are definitively anti-intellectual. (Re)trainings of intellectuals by bureaucrats and apparatchiks have a long and...

    Back in the in 40s and 50s, Americans could be blackballed, expelled or otherwise punished if they wouldn’t declare their national loyalty. The ideological fervor for conformity abated for decades, but has recently returned on our college campuses in the form of mandatory “diversity statements” by current and prospective faculty members. The difference is that instead of having to pledge support for America in its battle against communism, the new pledge is support to the “diversity” agenda in its battle against a color-blind nation where people are evaluated on their own merits rather than group membership. This recent paper by...

    Fort Worth police broke up a cockfighting event that ended in the arrests of three men, and 130 birds confiscated, but many had to be euthanized. Officers were called to a home in the 4300 block of Windowmere Street just after 11 a.m. Sunday. Police said 95 cocks, 17 hens and 18 chicks were seized. Seventeen recently-dead cocks were also found on the property. "We humanely euthanized 90 roosters, all who were in some state of suffering," Diane Covey with the Fort Worth Animal Shelter said via email. "Some of the roosters were still wearing gaffs, they were bleeding from...

From the Star Ledger: How every town in N.J. rates on income inequality Despite what Montclair wants you to believe, outside of the typical wealth enclaves like Saddle River, Far Hills, Deal and the like, Montclair ranks as pretty much the most unequal large town in New Jersey. There are few towns in NJ that show such a blatantly obvious amount of geographic segregation as Montclair, less than 1 mile separates some of the wealthiest residents of NJ from some of it’s poorest.

    The Kool Aid appears to still be on tap at the Pentagon and in the Beltway… I thought things would be different with this administration and with General Mad Dog Mattis at the helm. I still have faith in him, but my hope is dwindling. Every day, little bits and pieces of evidence are accumulating that the Pentagon PC insanity so prevalent and so destructive during the Obama years will roll on like a giant tsunami, until the US military is shattered into a thousand pieces. Today, State Senator Dr. Mark Green of Tennessee was forced to withdraw his nomination...

    Diversity....Quick. Make this woman Commander in Chief! Elizabeth Warren, U.S. Senator, probable future presidential candidate, fake Indian, and world-renowned military strategist wants you to know something. She’s done the research and determined what our military’s greatest strength is. Her findings will shock you. Our military’s greatest strength is not the gargantuan MOAB bomb we dropped on Afghanistan. In fact, our weaponry has nothing to do with it. That means it’s also not our nuclear arsenal, our combat gear, or our defensive countermeasures. It has nothing to do with the planet’s greatest collection of tanks, planes, and ships, either. Heck, it’s...
