    TV shows will have to meet a series of diversity requirements to be eligible for Bafta awards under new rules. The BFI Diversity Standards, which cover race, gender and sexual orientation among other categories, are already part of the criteria for Bafta's film awards and are now being extended to cover small-screen productions. The rules will be piloted in Bafta's TV awards next year and will be fully introduced in 2021, the academy said. In addition, Bafta committees and jury members are receiving training in 'unconscious bias' in an effort to promote diversity.

    Kansas City, Kansas, police were still searching for one suspect, Hugo Villanueva-Morales, 29, in connection with the shootings at the Tequila KC bar early Sunday that also wounded another five people. Officers arrested the second man, Javier Alatorre, 23, late Sunday afternoon. Bartender Jose Valdez told The Star that he had refused to serve one of the suspects because the man had previously caused problems at the bar. Valdez said the man threw a cup at him and left, but that he returned later with another man shortly before closing time. Authorities identified the four people killed as Francisco Anaya-Garcia,...

    A new peer reviewed study by Danish academics has found that ethnic diversity has a negative impact on communities because it erodes trust. It turns out that diversity is not a strength after all. The study, entitled ‘Ethnic Diversity and Social Trust: A Narrative and Meta-Analytical Review’, was conducted by Peter Thisted Dinesen and Merlin Schaeffer from the University of Copenhagen and Kim Mannemar Sønderskov from Aarhus University. Seeking to answer whether “continued immigration and corresponding growing ethnic diversity” was having a positive impact on community cohesion, the study found the opposite to be the case. Studying existing literature and...

    Kansas City, Kansas — Authorities are searching for one of two men they say opened fire in a bar here early Sunday, killing four people and wounding five others in a shooting police believe stemmed from an earlier dispute. The other suspect was taken into custody late Sunday afternoon, police said. Javier Alatorre was nabbed in Kansas City, Missouri with the help of that city's police, the FBI and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, according to Kansas City, Kansas police. They said a manhunt continued for Hugo Villanueva-Morales, who should be considered armed and dangerous. Both...

    Gender-neutral toilets in schools have left girls feeling unsafe and even put their health at risk, parents and teachers have warned. Girls who are menstruating are so anxious about sharing facilities with boys that some are staying at home for fear of being made to feel 'period shame'. With a growing number of both primary and secondary schools installing unisex toilets, some girls are risking infections by refusing to urinate all day. Others are so fearful they have stopped drinking liquids at school.

    Matthew Yunho Chan, a former administrator at Virginia Tech, received an 11 year sentence, to be suspended after 6 months, for 11 counts of possession of child pornography. Chan was Virginia Tech’s Associate Director of Diversity Initiatives and Sustainable Nanotechnology, and was charged with 22 felony counts of possession of child pornography in June of this year. In a summation of evidence, Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Sam Norman said that on February 5th, a computer technician at the school was investigating Chan’s laptop, after he had learned that there was no storage left on the device. The technician emptied the recycle...

    While China unveiled a new ‘doomsday’ nuclear bomb that can “strike the US within 30 minutes with ten warheads,” a top US General declared gender and race “diversity” to be a “warfighting necessity” against the homogeneous forces of China and Russia. We’re truly screwed. Billed as the “ultimate doomsday weapon,” the fearsome super nuke was displayed during China’s 70th anniversary parade in Tiananmen Square. “The Dongfeng-41 is a 7,672 mph intercontinental ballistic missile that is said to have the furthest range of any nuclear missile and could reach the US in 30 minutes,” reports the Sun.

    James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal ^ | October 2, 2019 | Harry Lewis
    In his new book The Assault on American Excellence, Yale law professor Anthony Kronman traces many of the current woes of American universities back to the use of one word in one opinion in one court case. That word is “diversity” and the opinion was Justice Lewis Powell’s in the 1978 Bakke case about minority admissions. To consolidate a five-vote majority, Powell’s opinion allowed race to be considered as one factor in the admissions process but ruled out the use of racial quotas or separate minority admissions programs. Powell’s opinion has, Kronman says, “reshaped every aspect of educational policy and...

    Everywhere you turn progressives are pushing the idea of diversity. It’s in our school curriculum, in every TV show and movie, and now even in corporate commercials. But within the era of Newspeak, what is now called diversity is actual progressive dogmatic orthodoxy. The only permitted diversity is in the narrow, acceptable progressive doctrine. It is acceptable to hold any opinion on the number of human genders if that number is greater than twelve. The current politically acceptable number is one hundred twelve. To say there are only two genders will get you send to re-education camp, or diversity training,...

    A top Democratic official in Alabama has said that one of his party's U.S. senators in the state "is a racist" and accused him of marginalizing black party members and wanting them "to pick the cotton" but not "manage the plantation." The Democratic National Committee's Black Caucus Vice Chairman Randy Kelley, who is black, blasted Doug Jones, who is white, and his allies in the DNC for pressuring African Americans to increase the representation of Hispanic, Asian, youth, gay, and disabled party members in a new "Diversity Caucus," a move he argues would reduce the influence of black Democrats. Kelley...

    Back in the Eighties when “diversity” and “multiculturalism” were starting to invade the universities, critics like me used to ask proponents if they wanted to apply “diversity” to selecting brain surgeons and airline pilots. Seems our common sense was naïve. According to an op-ed by Stanley Goldfarb, a professor of medicine at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine, medical schools are under pressure to include in its curriculum  “social justice” shibboleths like gun-control, climate change, and eliminating racial disparities. We are reaching new levels of dangerous absurdity when the study of medicine––perhaps our most practical, science-based discipline with...

    A Dutch lawyer in a major gangland case has been shot dead outside his Amsterdam home - a crime described by police as exceptionally brutal. Derk Wiersum, 44, was the lawyer for a state witness in a case against members of a violent drug gang, who are accused of five murders between 2015 and 2017. A hoodie-wearing suspect fled on foot. Police chief Erik Akerboom said "with this brutal murder, a new limit has been crossed: now even people simply doing their work no longer seem safe".

    On learning that the U.S. Army War College capitulated to the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (“CAIR”) hysterical demands, Lt Col. Allen West wrote: “This is embarrassing, disgusting, appalling, and highly disconcerting. My Army has just emboldened and encouraged the enemy, and they are laughing at us.” Recent events validate his prediction: having cowed the Army War College into obedience, an “emboldened and encouraged” CAIR replicated its demands with Congress. ... after inviting me to lecture on my recent book on the military history between Islam and the West, the U.S. Army War College (USAWC) reneged once CAIR cried “Islamophobia” and...

    At the end of July, MSNBC’s biggest and dullest conspiracy theorist got some very bad news. After over a year of booming ratings, The Rachel Maddow Show’s viewership had crashed. It had been a long road for Maddow, the former blonde Catholic high school girl who had decided she wanted to be a media personality and ended up with an MSNBC show through the efforts of Keith Olbermann. And after Keith was gone, MSNBC had to settle for a slightly less effeminate version of Olbermann. Maddow had retained the key elements of Olbermann’s personality, the unhinged conspiracy theories, histrionic delivery,...

    Archaeologists in Peru have unearthed what is believed to be the largest single mass child sacrifice in history. The bodies of 227 victims, aged between five and 14, were found near the coastal town of Huanchaco, north of Peru's capital Lima. The children were believed to have been sacrificed over 500 years ago. The discovery comes barely a year after 200 child victims of human sacrifice were found at two other sites in the country. Archaeologists told AFP news agency that some of the bodies in this latest collection still had hair and skin when they were dug up. The...

What would a fruit salad be without diversity, if it contained only watermelon or only grapes? Diversity in the marketplace caters to the needs and preferences of consumers. Some want chocolate, others vanilla. Some want a coupe, others a sedan. Some want Fast and Furious, others Beauty and the Beast. Diversity in education offers a variety of study opportunities for people with different interests. Some major in mathematics, others in literature, others in engineering, others...
