    Since Donald Trump was elected, marginalized communities have understood that life could become more difficult, but no one could have imagined just how difficult. From the moment Trump was inaugurated, we have borne witness to the ways in which his presidency has negatively affected our lives. From instituting a Muslim ban to emboldening and supporting white supremacists; from banning transgender people from serving in the military to ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, it’s clear to anyone looking that this administration isn’t acting in the best interests of marginalized communities.

  • Greek life retreat ends abruptly with bias concerns (Banana peels are racist)

    08/31/2017 6:05:24 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 96 replies
    This weekend, leaders from Ole Miss Greek life convened upon Camp Hopewell in Lafayette County for a three-day retreat designed to build leaders and bring campus closer together. The retreat was cut short Saturday night, however, after three black students found a banana peel in a tree in front of one of the camp’s cabins. The students shared what they found with National Pan-Hellenic Council leaders, sparking a day’s worth of camp-wide conversation surrounding symbolism, intended or not. In the midst of the open and sometimes heated discussion, senior accounting major Ryan Swanson said he put the banana peel in...

    Baltimore’s 225-year-old monument to Christopher Columbus, said to be the oldest in the country and the world dedicated to the explorer that is still standing, has been severely vandalized. A video posted today shows someone smashing the inscription at the base of the 44-foot-tall obelisk located at the intersection of Harford Road and Walther Avenue, across from Herring Run Park. This morning the words on the statue – Sacred to the Memory of Chris. Columbus Oct. XII MDCC VIIIC – were unreadable, a hole smashed in the stone. “Racism: Tear it down,” one sign leaning on the monument base says....

    By now, even those without two brain cells to rub together, have heard the news that President Trump's Chief of Strategy, Steve Bannon, is out of the White House. Initial reports were that he was fired; later, reports came out that he tendered his resignation some ten or eleven days ago, and that he and Gen. Kelly (the new chief of staff) mutually agreed that this would be his last day. (Not to worry about Bannon, though; by the early evening, it was announced that he had landed back at Breitbart News from whence he came.) Reaction from the usual...

    As the left mobilizes mobs to tear down confederate statues (and peace monuments) from city-to-city, it was only a matter of time before they would be going after our Founding Fathers. On CNN Thursday morning, liberal analyst Angela Rye argued that our nation’s first president was as detestable as Robert E. Lee because he was a slave owner. “To me, I don't care if it's a George Washington statue or Thomas Jefferson, they all need to come down,” she said before ranting about America’s “very violent past.” In a panel discussion with the Daily Beast’s John Avlon, journalist Farai Chideya...

    A group of anti-Confederate protesters aren’t happy enough with the declaration by the city of Memphis that it wants to dig up and move the remains of Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest. They want it done now. A group surrounded a shovel Wednesday and ceremoniously removed a chunk of grass and soil. “We are going to bring the back hoe, the tractors and the men with the equipment to raise Bedford Forrest from the soil of Memphis,” Isaac Richmond with the “Commission on Religion and Racism” declared to awaiting TV cameras, CBS 3 reported.

    Manhattan Contrarian ^ | 25 Jul, 2017 | Francis Menton
    A good one-sentence summary of the current American political divide is this: Republicans think that Democrats are wrong, but Democrats think that Republicans are evil. I mean, if you believe that all human problems -- poverty, racism, inadequate healthcare, income inequality, whatever -- can be solved, and that the world can be perfected, by another government program and some more spending and coercion, then who could be so evil as to stand in the way? And, if our opponents are evil, shouldn't we be angry? Really angry? We just need someone to articulate and channel that anger to rev up...

    Democrat lawmakers and climate change scientists warn that Trump’s disastrous environmental policies will culminate in the destruction of the Sun on August 21, 2017. Since taking office, Donald Trump has been rolling back Obama-era policies that curbed climate change on the pretense of liberating business owners from unnecessary job-killing regulations. However we now know that President Obama’s environmental regulations were the only thing keeping the world from being plunged into total darkness.

    townhall.com ^ | 7/15/2017 | California Doesn't Have Money to Fix Roads, But Drops Millions on Gun Violence Research
    This year California legislators passed the largest gas tax increase in decades, a move which will hit the middle class the hardest. When middle class taxpayers got upset, Gov. Brown hit back, calling them "freeloaders" and invoking the "everyone has to pitch in for society!" talking points. Maybe they'd have more money if they weren't spending it on things people don't rely on the government to provide. One thing legislators have found the money for is anti-gun research. They call it "gun violence research," but make no mistake, there is only one acceptable outcome for the research. During the 2016...

    Uh, sorry folks, but words mean things and science trumps feelings. Let's break this down. There are three sexual orientations: Straight, Gay, and Bi. If you have no attraction to members of the same sex, you're straight. If you have no attraction to members of the opposite sex, you're gay. If you have some attraction, some of the time, to members of both sexes, you're bi. If you have any degree of attraction to someone of the same sex as you, then you're Bi. You might be 1% Bi, you might choose to never act on your attraction (just as...

    I can’t wrap my brain around the level of crazy it takes to get us to this point in our nation’s short history, so I’m going to let you readers wrestle with this one, awhile. First of all, I can’t stop thinking of Jamie Farr’s “Klinger” character from M*A*S*H. Somebody forgot to tell the Department of Defense that that was parody. Klinger was playing crazy by dressing up in drag, hoping to get sent home, because that’s what is supposed to happen. You don’t allow those who have proven mental or emotional illnesses to serve in the military. They are...
