    Breitbart ^ | 11/24/2015
    The chaos that erupted across college campuses earlier this month escalated racial tensions among students to levels not seen since the 1950s and 60s, as radical activists sought to enforce a new orthodoxy of ‘white privilege’ across universities. The inevitable consequence — a newly-racialized American campus — is beginning to emerge. In the space of a few days, Facebook pages for “White Student Unions” have sprung up on dozens of campuses across North America. The pages adopt the language of campus activists, promising a “safe space” for white students and condemning alleged anti-white racism on campus. Mainstream media outlets have...

    Students at the College of William & Mary want Thomas Jefferson’s status removed from campus because they call him an “incestuous rapist” and a “racist.” The Jefferson statue there is now covered in yellow notes that say things including: “he knew it was wrong,” “racist” “rapist,” “black lives matter,” and ” stop worshiping racists.” The College of William & Mary, Jefferson’s alma mater, is one of many schools in America where student activists are debating the legacy of the Founding Fathers and demanding the removal of anything that commemorates them. At Princeton University, student activists held a sit-in inside the...

    Universities can’t withstand mobs, as countless assaults have proven. I’ve lived through two: at Washington University in St. Louis, in 1968, and then about a decade later at the University of Rome. In the summer of ’68 I saw a good deal of the French “Revolution,” which took over most of Paris for a week or so. Its headquarters were at the Sorbonne. It’s in the nature of campus revolts that the leaders aren’t going to be satisfied with limited reforms to the school; they are inspired by inflated rhetoric, and they see themselves at the center of a great...

    A Central New York college is under fire for kicking Fox News Channel off campus after questions about the school's alleged "liberal bias." Bill O'Reilly spoke Monday night about a recent Cornell Sun newspaper report that claimed 96 percent of the more than $600,000 in political donations from Cornell University faculty went to Democratic candidates. Only 15 of 323 donors gave money to "conservative" politicians, the Fox News host said. O'Reilly complained that it didn't seem diverse enough, so he sent "O'Reilly Factor" producer and reporter Jesse Watters to ask professors and students if they thought there was a liberal...

    MEXICO, N.Y. Mexico High School quarterback Dante Turo believes its God who gives him the strength and abilities to be successful on the football field. The junior team leader often points skyward after big plays as a tribute to the Almighty, and his 73-yard run for a touchdown against Vernon-Verona-Sherrill Oct. 17 was no exception, reports. The solemn celebration, however, apparently didnt sit well with one referee, who flagged the teen for unsportsmanlike conduct and assessed a 15-yard penalty that ultimately cost his team the game. I was just trying to give glory to God, Turo told the...

    A gay and lesbian-themed graphic novel on an elite university reading list for some incoming college freshmen is generating pushback among Christian students who feel the material is pornographic. Fun Home, a best-selling story that features a girl coming out as a lesbian and discovering her father was gay, is among several books selected by Duke University to give incoming students a shared intellectual experience with other members of their class. Instead, the racy reading material -- which is recommended, but not required -- seems to have stirred up controversy.

    The University of New Hampshire has removed from its website a bias-free language guide that warned against using the word American because it fails to recognize South America. The guide was developed in 2013 by several advocacy groups whose members are appointed by the university president. It was mentioned in an annual report submitted by at least one of those groups in 2014, but the university said administrators did not know about it until this week, when it was criticized in the media. [] It suggested replacements for common terms, such as person of material wealth instead of rich and...

Next week, Barnards trustees are expected to vote on an issue that has arrived loudly and emphatically on the front burner for womens...

While the situation in Australia appears nowhere near as dire, it is the case here that Christianity is often misrepresented and undermined. This happens especially in subjects such as history and in relation to what American political scientist Samuel P. Huntington terms the clash of civilisations. The expectation is that school textbooks present a balanced, objective and impartial view of ideas, beliefs and events. Such...

His working paper, Measuring Diversity: Law Faculties in 1997 and 2013, challenges the notion that women and minorities are underrepresented in teaching the law. Those groups actually have made significant gains.... But viewpoint diversity did not improve. For example, 59 percent of lawyers in 2013 identified as white Christians, and that group comprised nearly 57 percent of the working population. Yet white Christians made up just 34 percent of law professors. Republican men comprised 23...

    Marquette University has begun the process to fire a tenured professor after he publicly said that students have the right to oppose gay marriage while in class, while also naming the professor who tried to ban it. In a letter to Dr. John McAdams, Marquette informed the professor that the "University is commencing the process to revoke your tenure and to dismiss you from the faculty. Marquette is taking this action after Dr. McAdams became aware that another professor, Cheryl Abbate, had banned a student from opposing gay marriage in her classroom. Parts of the incident were recorded secretly by...

    A feminist professor of communications at the University of Michigan has become a laughingstock for a poorly-sourced column in a socialist newspaper about the academic basis for hating Republicans. In the article, Susan J. Douglas began with the statement, I hate Republicans and declares that marrying a Republican is unimaginable to me A specialist on Gender and the Media, she is reportedly married with a daughter. Ive got something that beats that. Curtis J. MacDougall, the author of a journalism textbook that I used in college, was a Marxist with a 319-page FBI file, who wrote favorably about Fidel Castro...

    In a Dec. 5 op-ed, the president of California State University (CSU) claimed if you are light skinned you have significant unearned privilege and routinely think less of those who are different than yourself. In her piece, Privilege at The Beach,referencing the Long Beach area where the school residesJane Close Conoley, a white woman herself, asserts that light skin color and high income levels may attract significant unearned privilege. Those who qualify for such privilege, often unknowingly exert distrust and lower expectations of behavior on those of another skin color. Those who are less affluent with darker skin or from...

    The concept of white privilege remains controversial in the same way people still argue about climate change. A small, increasingly-fringe faction might argue that it doesn't exist at all. Another broad, more conservative group might concede that it does, technically, exist, but still disagree about what it means, whether it's important and what, if anything, we can do about it. Still, many others would argue that acknowledging and working to understand it is an important step toward fixing the problem -- in the case of white privilege, the problem being compounded, inter-generational inequality that, although sometimes subtle, is still present...

    ( - Secretary of Education Arne Duncan says government funded universal preschool is a social movement and compared it to civil rights and gay marriage during a speech in Los Angeles last month. At the end of the day for me this is really a social movement, Duncan said when discussing federally subsidized preschool at the LA Universal Preschool (LAUP) forum on Oct. 21. If you look at social movements, we all celebrate what happened in the 1960s. The civil rights movement was extraordinarily powerful, life transforming, earth shattering. But the question I have is, why didnt the civil rights...
