    Looking back at the unrest that followed Freddie Gray's death, Baltimore voters see events differently than do voters statewide, a new poll shows.City voters are less likely to sympathize with police, and they are more likely to see joblessness and racism as a cause of April's unrest, according to a poll of likely voters conducted for The Baltimore Sun and the University of Baltimore.Those living outside the city are more likely to blame "a lack of personal responsibility among residents" for the city's ills.The divided opinions were most pronounced when respondents were asked for their opinions of how Baltimore State's...

  • The Shameful Liberal Exploitation of the Charleston Massacre (black on white stats)2015

    11/24/2015 7:50:56 PM PST · by doug from upland · 7 replies
    FROM THE ARTICLE: In fact, white violence against blacks is dwarfed by black on white violence. In 2012, blacks committed 560,600 acts of violence against whites (excluding homicide), and whites committed 99,403 acts of violence (excluding homicide) against blacks, according to data from the National Crime Victimization Survey provided to the author. Blacks, in other words, committed 85 percent of the non-homicide interracial crimes of violence between blacks and whites, even though they are less than 13 percent of the population. Both the absolute number of incidents and the rate of black-on-white violence are therefore magnitudes higher than white-on-black violence....

    ..... "Because the gospel removes both fear and pride, people should get along inside the church who could never get along outside." But then life gets in the way. We hang out with people who look and talk like we do. We credit ourselves for financial success and judge others as getting what they deserve. We feature the beautiful and ignore the broken. Our actions reveal how hard it is to ground our identity in Jesus Christ when the world divides along the lines of money, age, and ethnicity. Last fall the events of Ferguson, Missouri deepened many of these...

    For over half a century, American universities, with few exceptions, have ceased teaching and begun indoctrinating. In the past few weeks, this downhill spiral has accelerated. The university is now a caricature of an educational institution. It is difficult to come up with an idea or policy that is more absurd than the ideas and policies that now dominate American campuses. The University of California, once an elite public institution, now circulates a list of “microaggressions” that students and faculty must be careful to avoid lest they engage in racism and bigotry. Some examples: “There is only one race, the...

    Harris-Stowe State University must pay a former full-time education instructor $4.85 million in damages related to her racial bias claims, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. A St. Louis circuit court ruled that the historically black university discriminated against Beverly Wilkins, who is white, when it fired her in 2010. Wilkins said one administrator in particular, Latisha Smith, a former dean and department head, failed to follow a reduction in force policy in pegging her for termination over several other black faculty members. The lawsuit alleges that Smith purged the department of all white faculty members, except one protected by tenure,...

The list of demands titled "A collective Response to Anti-blackness" labels UNC Chapel Hill as an "unethical institution" which exploits labor, runs an "athletic industrial complex", and treats people of color as "less than essential to the everyday running of UNC." The demands rang from the removal of the new system president, mandatory training for students and staff on the "historical racial...

    It's bad enough having a state hold an election that is racially discriminatory. Now we have a judge willing to allow it to move forward. That would be federal district court Judge J. Michael Seabright (a George W. Bush appointee, surprisingly enough). He's refused to issue an injunction to stop an election in Hawaii to set up a separate government that excludes anyone who doesn't meet the state's definition of "Native Hawaiian." Seabright's deplorable decision in Akina v. State of Hawaii is on an emergency appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals--which, unfortunately, doesn't always seem to believe in...

    Obesity is still rising among American adults, despite more than a decade of public-awareness campaigns and other efforts to get people to watch their weight, and women have now overtaken men in the obese category, new government research shows. For the past several years, experts thought the nation's alarming, decades-long rise in obesity had leveled off. But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a report Thursday that the obesity rate has climbed to nearly 38 percent of adults, up from 32 percent about a decade earlier.

That, at least, was the victorious argument of the intellectual heavyweights of Concerned Student 1950, who insisted that Wolfe acknowledge his "white privilege" before leaving office in a handwritten - not typed, dammit! - letter.This raises some rather obvious questions, like: What is "white privilege"? Why is it that Tim Wolfe's "white privilege" mattered while that of Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel (salary: $3.1 million for helping men in pads hit each other) and Assistant Professor Melissa Click...

Hampton, who ran as the now Governor-elect Matt Bevin's running mate, is an outspoken tea party supporter, making her a rare find among her white counterparts. She's also a newcomer to the political arena. Last year, the 58-year-old ran for her first political seat against Jody Richards, the longest-serving state representative in Kentucky history. Hampton lost, but gained an endorsement from Kentucky Senator and Republican Presidential Candidate Rand Paul.

The takeover occurred over the last week, when members of the sub .500 football team joined black activists in demanding the university president resign.

Lots of white students joined in, admitting they too were guilty of white racism. And because they could not quite figure out what it...

    If it's illegal and considered racist for a white, straight business owner to deny service to a gay person or person of color, shouldn't the same be true for a yoga class that bars white people from attending?

Teresa Wang, co-founder of the specialized class, said it was started by five queer people of color who came together to create a safe space for people of color who might otherwise be...

    Did the Obama administration refuse to accept intel from the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) that suggested Oregon shooter Chris Harper Mercer had Islamic terrorist connections? Coming to light is another alleged false-flag operation being floated to give President Obama one more opportunity to push through his legacy goal of controlling gun ownership/2nd Amendment rights in the United States. What may or may not be a continuation of the Sandy Hook conspiracy theories and the selective reporting surrounding what was originally deemed a work place violence incident at Fort Hood involves a news story reported by the EU TIMES, online...

    Even though Christopher Harper-Mercer, the Oregon killer, had a black mother who raised him, the media insisted that he was a white supremacist. Mercer was about as white as Obama. Most of his victims were white Christians. If being half-black and hating Christians qualifies you as a white supremacist, then Obama needs to be investigated for possible white supremacist leanings.
