  • Uh, That's Racist: White Liberals Dumb Themselves Down While Speaking To Minorities...

    The Democrats are the party of Jim Crow, black codes, and the Ku Klux Klan—but it’s the GOP that’s racist and has a racist history, or something. These historical debates get the Left and Right going on social media. Yet, a new study just drives the heart into the whole notion that liberalism is open and averse to racism.  It’s the seat of irony. The report found that white liberals dumb themselves down while interacting with minorities in order to get along with them (via Yale Insights): Racial bias can put people of color at a disadvantage when interviewing for...
  • Why the Announcement of a Looming White Minority Makes Demographers Nervous

    The graphic was splashy by the Census Bureaus standards and it showed an unmistakable moment in Americas future: the year 2044, when white Americans were projected to fall below half the population and lose their majority status. The presentation of the data disturbed Kenneth Prewitt, a former Census Bureau director, who saw it while looking through a government report. The graphic made demographic change look like a zero-sum game that white Americans were losing, he thought, and could provoke a political backlash. So after the reports release three years ago, he organized a meeting with Katherine Wallman, at the time...

    Declaring that it is unfair that whites have more money than minorities, Sen. Cory (Spartacus) Booker (D-NJ) has concocted a plan to hand wads of cash to deserving black kids. Dubbing these giveaways opportunity accounts, Booker boasted that theres no telling what these young people are capable of doing if only they had the money to do it. Under Bookers scheme minority youths would be eligible for no strings grants of up to $50,000 they could use for wealth-building purposes. Most of the investment opportunities in the ghetto require cash. Well be giving these youngsters cash they could use to...

    Some 40 percent of black likely voters approve of the job President Donald Trump is doing, according to the daily Rasmussen poll released on Oct. 29. The number marks a record high, the pollster noted, and shows a rapid rise in support for the president among black voters, compared to Rasmussens own results from a year ago. The poll showed 29 percent support for Trump among blacks on Aug. 6, compared with 15 percent on Aug. 3, 2017. Reuters/Ipsos polls also have revealed an increase, though more modest, to 16.5 percent approval among blacks in an Oct. 1822 survey, from...

    Illinois Review ^ | October 8, 2018 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    Last weekend, pop (formerly country) superstar Taylor Swift after years of carefully avoiding politics took to Instagram to issue a polemic against Congressman Marsha Blackburn, candidate for U.S. Senate in her home state of Tennessee. Swift, who has long had a broad following across the ideological spectrum, penned a social media screed that tarred Rep. Blackburn with the usual accusations that modern Democrats regularly level against Republicans: accusing her of supporting a patriarchy by taking positions that oppose women, LGBTQs, and other minorities. Now, we have no way of knowing for sure whether T-Swift came to this feeling...

    As we move closer to the mid-term election day, the stream of favorable economic news following the Republican tax cuts and President Trump's moves toward deregulation has spurred former President Obama to step forward to try to make the case that his policies were the real source of the current boom. In a speech at the University of Illinois, Obama attempted to persuade people that "the credit for the prosperity that is breaking out today truly belongs to me. The GOP tax cuts wouldn't have been as effective if taxes hadn't been so high during my term. Likewise for the...

    According to Round Rock ISD data, in 2017, African-American students represented just 8.7 percent of RRISD students, but received 33 percent of all discretionary discipline placements. Parents like Mischia Farrer say theyre concerned those numbers arent proportional. Its just really unfair and it makes it hard to feel safe, said Farrer. I want my kid to feel safe in school. I dont want them to feel like theyre afraid. Its not a prison... The new district police department is estimated to cost RRISD $2.7 million each year.

Its like hot potato/musical chairs, but with a penis, said the girl leading the group. The kids gathered on a spring morning in South Los Angeles were about to get a hands-on lesson in sex education. Many health experts say that public health problems are best tackled outside the doctors office that fixing the culture that perpetuates them is more effective than changing a single patients behavior....

    Two of Bostons top teaching hospitals said they are expanding efforts to hire more black and Latino doctors, and to ensure their facilities are welcoming to minorities they treat an attempt to address two longstanding issues in the health care industry. Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, one of the nations leading cancer centers, plans to hire a new leader for diversity programs and to require all faculty and administrative leaders to complete a bias awareness workshop, and has set diversity goals in its 2018 strategic plan.

    The Miami New Times ^ | March 19, 2018 | Luther Campbell
    It's time to mount a serious campaign to end tolls in Miami-Dade County. Any time the government wants to charge people money, we should be allowed to vote on it. Florida's Turnpike Enterprise and the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX) are highway robbers preying on predominantly poor motorists struggling to have a roof over their heads, put food on the table, and take care of their families. I remember the days when there was only one toll on State Road 112 when you left Miami International Airport to get to Miami Beach. Now there are tolls on virtually every major highway...

    The Trump administration is being accused of racism for targeting an Obama-era directive compelling schools to ease up on discipline for minority students even though the policy has made life more difficult for kids, including minorities, stuck in increasingly unruly classrooms. Ask Virginia Walden Ford, who runs a church-based after-school snack program in Little Rock. She was recently surprised when a young, fearful black girl turned up before the end of the school day and admitted she had skipped class. Why? She had been involved in a fight the day before with another girl, but the school had refused...

    New Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) statistics show the number of white people at British universities is in decline, with minorities surging ahead. The figures show there were 1,507,815 white students enrolled at all levels in 2012/13, but this fell to 1,459,735 in 2013/14 and 1,418,685 in 2014/15. Numbers declined slightly again in 2015/16 to 1,417,300, before ticking up slightly in 2016/17 to 1,425,665 for an overall decline of around 5.5 per cent over a five-year period. Meanwhile, the number of black, Asian, and other (including mixed race) students are up significantly across the board despite left-liberal politicians...

    Were cutting off money for schools, cutting off money for police, allowing people to be forced to live in food deserts, closing hospitals, closing access to mental health facilities, Kennedy told reporters during a news conference that began as a criticism of the citys efforts to stop gun violence. What choice do people have but to move, to leave, and I think thats part of a strategic gentrification plan being implemented by the city of Chicago to push people of color out of the city, he continued. Asked who is behind this alleged plan, Kennedy pointed to Emanuel. I believe...

    Minneapolis To Reduce Police Psych Testing After Screening Out Too Many Minorities Anders Hagstrom Justice Reporter 1:53 PM 12/15/2017 The city of Minneapolis may fire its police psychology evaluator because his tests screened out too many minority candidates, despite already lowering psych evaluations far below the national standard. The July police shooting of Justine Damond triggered the city to scrutinize its psychological standards for police, with many claiming theyd become lax. Psychiatrist Thomas Gratzer has run psych testing for the Minneapolis police for the past five years, and in that time, he has eliminated four of the five tests used...

    Dominick White has a bleak but clear-eyed view of his Atlantic City home in a public housing project known for crime and drugs. I grew up in a bad neighborhood, he said. Im trying to beat the odds and get away, and not become a statistic. On Monday morning, White will start training for a career as a construction worker, a move that could be a life-changer for him and 14 other young city residents. They were selected for a 12-week program that will teach them construction skills, and then connect them with jobs at the Hard Rock Hotel &...

    If any force on Earth could be powerful enough to unite the Democratic Party, youd have thought the words President Donald Trump would do the trick. Instead, Hillary Clintons defeat last November only served to intensify the split within the party. Nine months in, two warring camps continue to offer seemingly irreconcilable versions of what went awry and how to fix it. On one side, populists like Bernie Sanders and Rust Belt Democrats like Representative Tim Ryan of Ohio argue that the party lost by neglecting working-class voters while catering primarily to identity politics. On the other side, an equally...

That brings the total number of concealed handgun permit holders in the country to 16.3 million, with some of the biggest increases occurring among women and African-Americans, the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) said.
