    Left-wing students at the University of California, Berkeley are protesting again. This time, however, these students are calling for “safe spaces” for transgendered people, as well as “spaces of color” at the University (which they already have). The protesters are also harassing white students trying to study, barring their path across a key bridge while allowing students of color safe passage.

    Emory University’s Campus Life Department will soon host what it hopes will become a regular social hour, but invitations will only be extended to students and staff “of color.” DeLa Sweeney, Emory’s interim director for Multicultural Programs, sent an email to staff at the school’s Campus Life Department, inviting them to attend an upcoming social “for students, alumni, faculty, and Emory Campus Life staff of color” only. “This event is intended to serve as an opportunity for people of color at Emory to connect with one another and strengthen relationships within and across various communities, identities, and positions in the...
  • How Toxic Multiuclturalism Is Brainwashing the White Race To Abolish Itself

    Flopping Aces ^ | 10-20-16 | Christopher J. Green
    There are many toxic aspects of multiculturalism but one of the most wicked concerns the way it has brainwashed the majority of white people to be ashamed of their own race on some level. Even proud white patriots on the so-called alt-right who are strongly opposed to the relentless transformation of their nations have been infected by this brainwashing to some degree as you’ll now discover. It’s important to remember that multiculturalism is a deception created by Marxists to bring about the destruction of the capitalist West. It’s a concerted attack on Western civilization and has nothing to do with...

The program, which is facilitated by the campus Gender + Equality center, aims to re-educate students to “use their influence on campus to prevent sexual assault and misconduct.”

    Student response to the recent announcement that transfers into the two new residential colleges will be randomly placed into either Pauli Murray or Benjamin Franklin college has shown that Yale’s campus is not of one mind on the significance of a college’s name to its community. When its name was announced last April, Pauli Murray College — which honors civil rights activist and 20th century intellectual Anna Pauline Murray LAW ’65 — became the first residential college named after a woman or a person of color. Under the shadow of a yearlong debate over the name of Calhoun College, the...

    Ratings in the NFL, while still stronger than any other challenger on the television landscape, continue to decline, and a new survey by Yahoo Sports and YouGov discerns several reasons why. In a survey of 1,136 Americans who identified themselves as NFL fans, 29 percent said they are watching fewer NFL games. (Interestingly, 27 percent said they were watching more, though that does not necessarily correlate only a 2 percent net loss.) The fans claiming they watch less of the NFL cited the following reasons: • Protests by Colin Kaepernick and others • Lack of opportunity to watch the NFL...

The proposal for additional environments for black students came after a 149-page-report on the “Black Student Experience” at Northwestern. The report concluded that black students feel “dissatisfied, exhausted and alienated on campus.” As a result, the report provided 14 recommendations on how the experience for black students could be approved at Northwestern.

    President Obama spoke to a group of young Southeast Asian leaders Friday in Malaysia and warned them about about avoiding the "pitfalls" the United States suffers from, the Washington Times reports. Human Rights Watch says on its main Malaysia page that the country’s government has engaged in a "strong crackdown on civil and political rights, including charging organizers of peaceful demonstrations. Though he had promised to repeal the Sedition Act, Prime Minister Najib Razak pushed through amendments to strengthen it, as well as a repressive counterterror law." Obama, however, warned the leaders about such American weaknesses as racial divides, income...

    A white pastor in New York has been swept up in a race debate following a proclamation that he would not say “all lives matter.” The mantra, he said, does not address an essential issue. The 37-year-old’s comment came just days after two police shootings left two black men dead. Terence Crutcher, an unarmed black man, was shot and killed by a white police officer in Tulsa on Sept. 16; four days later, another black man, Keith Lamont Scott, was killed at the hands of police in Charlotte. The shootings ignited peaceful protests interrupted by chaos in cities 1,000 miles...

    When Obama assumed office in 2009, there were high hopes that the first African American president with bi-racial parents would be able to bridge the racial divide and foster unity in the country. Those hopes were soon dashed. Nearly eight years later, the nation is more polarized than ever, as devastating race riots grip large metropolitan cities with alarming frequency. Instead of offering hope, Obama gave us demagoguery. Instead of fostering unity he stoked and encouraged divisiveness. Instead of providing concrete solutions, he issued speeches laced with empty rhetoric and platitudes. Instead of calming the nation in times of crisis,...

Alas, that was not to be. Not surprisingly, after almost eight years of America’s first black president, America is still a racist place… maybe even more of one.

It is fueled largely, if not entirely, by half-truths and outright lies. Truth is irrelevant. Only the narrative matters.

For college administrators and leftist faculty, the actual fate of black students is not nearly so important as the good feelings they receive from a black presence...

    Black men may have a legitimate reason to flee Boston police during investigatory or “Terry” stops, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled Tuesday. The court found that systemic racism in the Boston Police Department may be considered in conjunction with a suspect’s decision to flee from police during a stop. A Terry stop, named for the U.S. Supreme Court case which sanctioned the practice, refers to a brief detention and search of an individual due to reasonable suspicion of criminal conduct. In this case, a black male named Jimmy Warren was arrested in 2011

African-American students make up just under 6 percent of the campus population and it’s unclear how many dorm rooms will be dedicated to African-American culture. University officials says the plans are in the very early stages.

    ‘I think part of what we see is the Clinton campaign made a bad decision’ ...Princeton professor African-American studies, Eddie Glaude, is blasting President Obama for the "condescending" speech he delivered Saturday, during which he urged black voters to vote for Hillary Clinton. Failure to do so, Obama told the Congressional Black Caucus, would "insult" him. Glaude appeared Monday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." Here's an excerpt: GLAUDE: “They’re getting a little wobbly but they’re still still sturdy. (Laughter) And part of — you know, I am really — I was really annoyed actually by the president’s speech.” SCARBOROUGH: “Were you...

    A New Orleans activist group is threatening to pull down the city's most recognizable statue in response to what members claim are unreasonable delays in removing four other monuments honoring Confederate leaders and a 19th century white supremacist militia. Take 'Em Down NOLA says it will attempt to topple the statue of Andrew Jackson during a protest later this month in Jackson Square. Legal delays have kept the other statues -- honoring Confederate President Jefferson Davis, Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and P.G.T. Beauregard, and a militia known as the White League -- standing nine months after the City Council...

    A travel tip at the end of the magazine's latest cover story advised London visitors about going to neighborhoods with large populations of "Indians, Pakistanis and black people." The warning set off a storm of protest and prompted a British lawmaker to demand an apology from China's flag carrier. "London is generally a safe place to travel, however precautions are needed when entering areas mainly populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people," said the passage, which was spotted by a CNBC journalist. "We advise tourists not to go out alone at night, and females always to be accompanied by another...

    Police officers at Brown University are no longer including the race of criminal suspects when announcing crimes, after an outcry from Brown students who said the practice stigmatized certain groups. The policy was first implemented a year ago, but was only publicized Wednesday by The Brown Daily Herald. Including a suspect’s race is often harmful because “vague descriptions can reinforce stereotypes,” causing hostility towards some community members, according to police chief Mark Porter. To solve the problem, Brown police are making the descriptions even vaguer, including only the suspect’s age, sex, build, and general appearance (sans skin color). The shift...

    Have you noticed that we are becoming increasingly balkanized – by race, religion and in other ways?When an angry black gunman ambushed and killed five police officers and wounded nine other in Dallas, he said he was upset over police shootings of black men and that he wanted to kill white people, especially white police officers. When San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the national anthem, he said "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color."
