    Minnesota Reformer ^ | Nesterak | Max
    Employees at Minnesota Public Radio and its parent company American Public Media authored a letter to readers on Tuesday saying they’ve “lost trust in the company’s senior leaders” and have issued a list of demands to improve racial and gender equity. The demands, listed on a new website called “Transform MPR,” come a week after the public resignation of veteran reporter Marianne Combs and firing of Garrett McQueen, the classical station’s only Black host. Combs announced she quit on Twitter and accused editors of slow-walking her investigation into allegations that a DJ on the Current had been accused of “sexual...

    American Thinker ^ | September 19, 2020 | Allan J. Favish
    Before she was on the United States Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsburg supported a U.S. government racial quota plan when she was on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. The mainstream media did not tell the public about it. The Democrats and Republicans in Congress did not tell the public about it. Talk-radio hosts did not tell the public about it. As a Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg continued her approval of racial preferences, aka “affirmative action” as described here, here and here.

    Meryl Streep’s nephew allegedly hurled racist slurs in a road-rage incident in East Hampton, the victim’s lawyer said Wednesday, as photos of the teen’s horrific head injuries emerged. David Peralta, 18, filed a lawsuit against Charles Harrison Streep over the alleged beatdown on Aug. 24, which required emergency surgery to relieve pressure in his brain, attorney Edmond Chakmakian told The Post. The John Jay College student and aspiring detective, who lives in East Hampton, is now facing significant cognitive difficulties.

    On Wednesday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) introduced a new bill that would require the Federal Reserve to make reducing racial employment and wage gaps a central part of its mission moving forward. The bill, which is co-sponsored by 18 other Democrats including Sen. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.), Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), would require the Federal Reserve to have a Racial and Economic Equity Act that “minimizes and eliminates racial disparities in employment, wages, wealth, and access to affordable credit,” the proposed bill...

    Three North Carolina officers were fired over remarks they made, with one saying he was "ready" for a second "civil war." Now, 89 cases in which the officers were involved are under review for bias, according to the local district attorney. Donny Williams, Wilmington's first black police chief, said he fired the three officers on his first day in the role. "These individuals do not deserve to be in law enforcement," he told CBS News' David Begnaud. An internal investigation at the Wilmington Police Department accused veteran officers Kevin Piner, James "Brian" Gilmore and Corporal Jessie Moore of violating standards...
  • Planned Parenthood Accused of Racism – by Its Own Employees

    The nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, regularly claims that Black Lives Matter. In that sense, they would do well to scrutinize their own organization – in more ways than one. On June 18, The New Republic reported on a “worker uprising” at Planned Parenthood’s largest affiliate: Planned Parenthood of Greater New York (PPGNY). Staff writer Melissa Gira Grant revealed a letter signed by hundreds of employees calling for the removal of CEO Laura McQuade, a “toxic leader and autocrat.” Among other issues, they complained of systemic racism, fiscal mismanagement, an unseemly response to COVID-19, and, in related letters, a disregard for...

    Racial reconciliation will never happen in America until those responsible for systematic racism fess up and make it right. But why would Democrats do that?After all, their campaign to blame others for their bloodguilt has been a remarkable success.When George Floyd died, some virtue-signaling dog whistle that only leftists can hear sounded across the country, and Washington Democrats got busy stirring up division. Then they whipped out kente cloths and took a knee. As if they really care. If Democrats cared, and possessed even a smidgeon of remorse, they would spend the rest of their lives apologizing to black Americans for...

    A group of African American content creators has launched a putative class action against YouTube and its Alphabet parent company for allegedly violating various laws intended to prevent racial discrimination. The lawsuit represents the latest courtroom attack on the increasingly controversial immunities afforded digital services under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. The complaint filed on Tuesday in California federal court objects to the way in which YouTube is employing artificial intelligence, algorithms, and other filtering tools. The social video site uses these tools to help viewers screen out potentially mature content, but the plaintiffs here say that by...

    From reparations to "baby bonds," Democratic candidates are proposing big ideas to confront inequality. If you’ve been to an event with a Democrat running for president this year, there's a good chance you’ve heard about it: the racial wealth gap. Candidates are regularly bringing up the fact that the typical black family has only one-tenth the assets of the typical white family — a divide that has grown larger than it was 35 years ago. Far from a niche concern, candidates have incorporated it into their signature proposals. They've addressed it in speeches not just to black churches in South...

    The Metropolitan Opera will hire an all-black outside chorus next season for its first presentation in nearly three decades of the Gershwins' "Porgy and Bess," which opens the season on Sept. 23. Performances of "Porgy and Bess," which premiered in 1935, are licensed by the Gershwin family, which specifies an all-black cast. "Certainly it's more complicated, but it's worth the complications because it's such a great piece," Met general manager Peter Gelb. "Porgy," by George and Ira Gershwin, and DuBose and Dorothy Heyward, depicts a beggar in a poor African-American community of Charleston, South Carolina. When the Met presented "Porgy"...

    The headline should have been: “Security Guard Apprehends Shooter and Saves Lives.” Instead, it’s another case of the police shooting and killing an innocent black man. Eyewitnesses say that at Manny’s Blue Room Bar in Robbins, [Cook County, Chicago] Ill., security told a group of intoxicated men they had to leave. One of the men returned armed, at which point shots were exchanged between them and armed security guards. One of the guards, Jemel Roberson, 26, managed to restrain one of the gunmen. From WGN9: “He had somebody on the ground with his knee in back with his gun in...
