    Apple’s vice president of diversity and inclusion will be stepping down at the end of the year after outrage over comments she made claiming white men can still bring diverse viewpoints to the workplace. According to Quartz, at the One Young World Summit in October, Denise Young Smith spoke about her efforts to increase diversity at Apple. Instead of saying she specifically tries to recruit people based on their race and gender, Young Smith said, “I focus on everyone.” “Diversity is the human experience. I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the...

    Students are demanding university bosses change the name of a halls of residence because of its links to former Prime Minister William Gladstone and his association with the slave trade. The Roscoe and Gladstone building at Liverpool University was partly named after the Liberal politician, whose family wealth was built on slavery in the 19th century.

    'This stuff makes my head hurt'In the world of the politically correct, where Associated Press news-style gurus say a man who calls himself a woman is a woman and woman who calls herself a man is a man, it’s easy to see how mistakes could happen.As AP found this week when it had to delete a tweet promoting a gender story because it misgendered a transgender.“We’ve deleted a Wednesday tweet about two transgender city council members elected in Minneapolis because it misidentified one of them as a woman. A replacement tweet is upcoming,” the wire service said. We’ve deleted a...

    WTOP News [Washington DC] ^ | November 3, 2017 5:10 am | Nick Iannelli | @NickWTOP
    WASHINGTON — Fairfax County Public Schools, the largest public school system in the D.C. region, is asking for financial donations to help cover the substantial costs associated with renaming J.E.B. Stuart High School in Falls Church, Virginia. Following a vote to rename the school last week, county officials set up a website, asking people to send in money. So far, the effort has generated more than $8,000. Officials said any donations will help with name-change expenses, which otherwise would need to be covered entirely by county taxpayers. The full cost of changing the school’s name is expected to be somewhere...
  • At Today’s Universities, Philosophy Is The Handmaid Of Political Correctness

    At Today’s Universities, Philosophy Is The Handmaid Of Political Correctness University philosophy departments are supposed to be centers of open inquiry and rigorous analysis. What happens when that comes up against political correctness? By Robert Tracinski “Political Correctness Enforced on College Campus” is pretty much a “Dog Bites Man” story these days, but I just came across a new entry in the genre that is particularly interesting because it happened in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Philosophy departments are, in theory, supposed to be centers of open inquiry and rigorous analysis, where received...

    The Divided States of America! Political correctness is stifling freedom in the United States and it’s making people refrain from expressing their political beliefs.According to the Cato Institute’s 2017 Free Speech and Tolerance Survey of 2,300 U.S. adults: 71% Americans believe that political correctness has silenced important discussions our society needs to have. The consequences are personal — 58% of Americans believe the political climate prevents them from sharing their own political beliefs. These feelings are strongest among Republicans (73%) and independents (58%). Unsurprisingly for Democrats, 53 percent don’t feel any need to censor their political thoughts. Though nearly 60 percent believe even unpopular...

Let’s say you’re in Manhattan and you need to go from point A to point B, and you put those addresses in, and it calculates your route and tells us how long it’s gonna take you to get there if you’re driving or if you take public transit or...

    Mixed Times ^ | October 14, 2017
    Figures obtained by The Times through the Freedom of Information Act reveal that 3,395 people across 29 forces were arrested last under section 127 of the Communications Act 2003, which makes it illegal to intentionally “cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to another”, in 2016. The true figure is likely to be significantly higher, as thirteen police forces refused to provide the requested information and two did not provide usable data. Around half of the investigations were abandoned before being brought to prosecution, which critics say is an indication that the authorities are being excessively strict in their interpretation of...

    A federal appeals court has found that a 40-foot-tall cross on a Maryland state highway median just outside Washington violates the U.S. Constitution. A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit of Appeals in Richmond ruled Wednesday that the 92-year-old monument known as the Bladensburg cross amounts to government sponsorship of a particular religion. […] The American Humanist Association said it endorses Christianity while ignoring non-Christian veterans. …

    Market doomsayer Marc "Dr. Doom" Faber has launched a racially charged diatribe in his latest newsletter, alleging that the U.S. is great primarily because it is ruled by white people. The eccentric Gloom, Boom & Doom report author, who often speaks on CNBC and other financial media, generally forecasting some type of market downturn, focused his latest comments on the racial conflicts happening around the country. (A CNBC spokesperson said it will not book him in the future.) "And thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks. Otherwise, the US would look like Zimbabwe, which it might look...

    A Boise State University professor recently learned what happens when you challenge left-wing social narratives on college campuses. Scott Yenor, a tenured professor, has been under siege on campus after publishing articles with The Heritage Foundation and The Daily Signal about feminism and the transgender movement. In those articles, Yenor explained the similarity in philosophy between the early feminists and modern transgender movement and how they aim at undermining traditional family values. He wrote in a Daily Signal article on Aug. 2:

    Francisco Salinas is the Director of Student Diversity and Inclusion at Boise State University (BSU). He is perhaps the most intellectually constipated college administrator working west of the Mississippi and outside of the State of California. Due to his relative obscurity, his mendacity was well hidden until he decided to lash out at BSU Professor Scott Yenor. I am writing today in Yenor’s defense.The motivation for Salinas’ vicious attack on his colleague was that Professor Yenor decided to write an article in which he criticized feminism in general and gender identity politics in particular. In other words, he decided to...

    At Oxford, where the motto is, “The Lord is my Light.” Members of the Christian Union (CU) were banned from attending a freshman fair at the University of Oxford for fears that incoming students might face “potential harm” and feel unwelcome. According to Breitbart London, the university wanted to keep the freshers’ fair a “secular space” after concerns were raised by “student welfare representatives.” This was a strange turn of events for an institue established under Christianity. An internal e-mail explained the university’s reasoning: "We recognise the wonderful advantages in having CU representatives at the Fresher’s Fair, but are concerned...

    Well, it’s Christopher Columbus Day again. And this, of course, means that it is but another occasion for leftists everywhere to repudiate their own civilization. For a few decades now, the 15th century European explorer’s face has been held up as that of Western civilization, i.e. the face of all that is evil in the world. Columbus is the proverbial poster child for the White, Christian, Heterosexual Male, i.e. the contemporary left’s version of Public Enemy Number One. Columbus Day assumes a new significance this year, however, for monuments to Columbus are no longer alone in being targeted for destruction...

    As Americans, there’s much we can learn from other cultures. In fact, one of the best things about this country is the way we incorporate so many wonderful aspects of so many different cultures, from food and music to clothing and customs. If that’s what “multiculturalism” meant, it would indeed be a good thing. Unfortunately, it’s not, at least for progressives. To them, multiculturalism is the idea that all cultures are equal — that no culture is superior to any other. That’s patently absurd. It’s obvious to any intellectually honest person that western culture, rooted in Judeo-Christian values, has given...

    Besides defending his father, Trump Jr used much of his 35-minute address to mock the culture on most of the nation’s college campuses, which he said teaches young Americans to “hate their country” and “hate their religion” while squelching conservative voices. He noted instances where conservatives have been denied speaking opportunities or encountered protests upon their appearances. “Today’s conservative speech is violence. Unprovoked liberal violence is self-defense,” Trump Jr complained. “Words have lost their meanings.” He continued: “‘Hate speech’ is that America is a good country ... that we need borders ... anything that comes out of the mouth of...

    One of the unique features of the Sukkot service in the Beit HaMikdash was the daily offering of bulls, with the number declining from thirteen on the first day to seven on the seventh and last day. Throughout the holiday of Sukkot, a total of seventy bulls were offered, corresponding to the proverbial seventy nations of the world. These bulls served as atonement for their sins, which would ensure that they, too, were blessed with heavenly rain and prosperity. “Rabbi Yochanan said: Woe to the idolaters who lost something and they don’t know what they lost. For when the Beit...

    Comedian Mel Brooks says political correctness is the death of comedy. Brooks is currently preparing to open his stage version of the film Young Frankenstein in London’s Garrick Theater. As the theater prepares for an October opening, Brooks gave an interview about the show and his long career to BBC Radio 4’s Rebecca Jones.Asked if any of his films could get made today, Brooks replied, “No, no. I mean maybe Young Frankenstein and maybe a few but never Blazing Saddles because we have become stupidly politically correct, which is the death of comedy.” He continued, “It’s okay not to...

    Former Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) tweeted that she hopes all NFL players kneel during the national anthem on Sunday in response to President Trump's remarks attacking Colin Kaepernick. Edwards, who left Congress earlier this year, called Trump a "white supremacist who squats in our White House" in her tweet. Trump suggested at a rally Friday night for Alabama Senate candidate Luther Strange (R) that NFL players like Kaepernick who kneel during the national anthem should be fired and fans should walk out. "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say,...
