    * An analysis by researchers at the UCLA College found that women hold only 32.0% of studio chair and CEO jobs; minorities just 8.0%. * Across broadcast, cable and digital, only 24.0% of credited writers are minorities and only 21.8% of episodes were directed by minorities in 2018–19. * Representation of women and minorities in acting roles has improved since last year’s report. * Ratings and social media engagement data show that audiences respond to diversity. When it comes to gender and racial diversity in television industry jobs, the playing field continues to level for women and minorities, but there’s...

    WSLS 10 News questioned Gov. Ralph Northam on the issue while speaking at an event in South Boston. “We talked about that very issue that racism is a health crisis issue. We’re looking at a proclamation. That starts with leadership and a message that comes from the Governor and other individuals. It’s something that I’m discussing with that advisory board. I’ll work with Del. Aird and I think you’ll see more in that regard,” commented Gov. Northam. Del. Lashrecse Aird represents Virginia’s 63rd district in the House of Delegates. Part of the General Assembly’s special session, Del. Aird introduced a...

    The two-star U.S. Marine Corps general in charge of all Marines in Europe and Africa has been relieved of command following an investigation into his alleged use of a racial slur, according to a U.S. official. Gen. David Berger, the commandant of the Marine Corps, relieved Maj. Gen. Stephen Neary of his command of Marine Forces Europe and Africa due to a "loss of trust and confidence in his ability to serve in command," the Marines announced Tuesday. Neary had assumed the role of the top commander of Marine forces in Europe and Africa on July 8. Though no official...

    MADISON — For parents who believe fleeing liberal cities for the suburbs will free their children from the racist Woke indoctrination smothering public school curriculum, think again.  The father of a student at River Bluff Middle School in the Madison suburb of Stoughton says the eighth-grade class has been assigned the book, “Stamped: Racism, Antiracism and You.” The book is co-authored by Neo-Marxist Ibram X. Kendi, peddler of “critical race theory” ideology which sees “white supremacy” behind every social injustice and promotes “anti-racism” through actual racism. Simply put, it promotes widespread discrimination against white people or those of Asian ancestry as a kind...

    The Marine Corps has removed its commanding general in Europe and Africa while he is under investigation for reportedly using racial slurs. Maj. General Stephen Neary, a two-star general, was relieved of his duties on Monday due to a "loss of trust and confidence in his ability to serve in command," the Marine Corps said in a statement obtained via email by The Hill. Stars and Stripes reported earlier this month that Neary was under investigation for reportedly using racial slurs when referring to African Americans.

    Leftist Marxist activist and Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors has inked a production deal with Warner Bros. Television Group to produce content across the company’s many multimedia platforms. You can add Warner Brothers to the list of Leftist propaganda outlets to put on the boycott list, they just signed Marxist Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors to begin producing projects for them. Won’t it be fun letting your kids watch cartoons telling them that the police are their enemy, and that the country they live in was created by a bunch of white, male racists? Yep, that’s what’s coming...

    A large ANTIFA mob attacked a group of pro-Trump attendees of a Free Speech Rally held at Twitter’s headquarters in San Francisco, including rally organizer Philip Anderson who is a black Trump supporter. During their debate, President Trump asked Joe Biden if he would condemn domestic terror group ANTIFA, and Biden replied that ANTIFA wasn’t real, that they were “just an idea”. Well, that “idea” viscously attacked Trump supporter Philip Anderson, a black man, as well as a white woman at a Free Speech Protest rally at Twitter headquarters in San Francisco. So now we have ANTIFA, the most fascist...

    Editor's Note: This column was co-authored by Vernon Robinson. Yes, Kamala Harris was right when during a Democratic Party presidential debate she accused Joe Biden of being a racist. After assuring Joe Biden that she wasn’t going to call him a racist, she did just that saying, “it’s personal and it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country.  And it was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose busing.” But, it isn’t just that Joe...

    Critical race theory likely advances the cause of white nationalism, and the president is right to oppose it President Donald Trump announced on Sept. 5 an end to critical race theory training in federal agencies. As explained by Russ Vought, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, the policy change targets “training or propaganda” pertaining to “white privilege” and efforts to advance the claim that “the United States is an inherently racist or evil country or … that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil.” On Sept. 22, the president extended this ban to companies doing...

    For three years, and without evidence, The New York Times falsely claimed that Donald Trump's presidential campaign colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election. Thereafter, their hopelessly biased executive editor, Dean Baquet, decided to switch gears. After the Mueller report imploded, at Baquet's direction, the Times would shift its focus of its coverage from the 'Trump-Russia affair' to the president's 'alleged racism.' "We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well," Baquet said, apparently unaware of the historically profound idiocy of his statement. "Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to...

    More than 150 business and nonprofit groups, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, are asking President Trump to withdraw his executive order that puts a limit on some diversity training. In a letter sent to the White House Thursday, the groups said that the order creates confusion, leads to unnecessary investigations and hinders employers from combating workplace discrimination. The group said the order “is already having a broadly chilling effect on legitimate” diversity training and its ambiguity could lead to unwarranted complaints and investigations. The executive order, issued on Sept. 22, prohibits federal agencies, companies with federal contracts and recipients...

    How is it possible to debate Critical Race Theory yet fail to mention its salient characteristic—that it is exclusively and ethnocidally anti-white? One Federalist piece, "Critical Race Theory Is A Classic Communist Divide-And-Conquer Tactic," brings it back to communism. Quite how this adds up is unclear, but the author decries a way of thinking that exploits the amorphous "tragedy of racial divisions in America." In essence, some bad people with a communistic manual and mindset aren't interested in healing us. Really? Did Communism, an equal-opportunity oppressor, revolve around the exclusive blackening of whites? Western democracies are third way political and economic systems. They are already...

The two-hour “Recovery from White Conditioning” lecture, hosted through the school’s Center for Practice Transformation, featured therapist Cristina Combs. Combs is a University of Minnesota alumnus who created the white supremacy 12 step program -after years of struggling to navigate the role and presence of whiteness in...

    Whites and non-whites training to be Residential Assistants at the University of Kentucky were segregated according to their race and put through different presentations. The separate trainings were provided to Young America’s Foundation through the organization’s Campus Bias Tip Line, which included emails and documents about the training. White RAs were sent to a “White Accountability Space” where they were given a document that listed 41 “common racist behaviors and attitudes of white people.” ... The person who alerted YAF to the segregation wished to remain anonymous and said that white students were required to have the document on their...

    It is becoming more difficult for educators to elude the oppressive imaginings of diversity squads on college campuses. Professors are loath to admit that the classroom has become a minefield where they routinely risk a combustible encounter with an angry student. “You show me an angry student” says a retired college administrator, “and I’ll show you a complaint about racial bias,” he wrote in a now-deleted post. “Implicit bias,” and the even more obscure, “microaggressions,” cover a nebulous area of academic terrain, but that doesn’t stop students from harming careers of perceived offenders. Educators are now caught in the crosshairs...

    It’s seven in the evening and you’re working late. You’re interrupted by the soft rumble of hunger pangs, an unmistakable reminder that you haven’t eaten dinner yet. There’s this newish fusion restaurant a couple of blocks away that you’ve been wanting to try, but haven’t had the chance to. Every time you’ve walked past, it’s buzzing with activity. So you look the restaurant up on Yelp to see if it’s worth your time and money. You launch the app and search, only to be hit with an alert emblazoned with an ominously large exclamation point: ‘Business Accused of Racist Behavior’...

    VIENNA, Ill. - Ask around this time-battered Midwestern town, with its empty storefronts, dusty antique shops and businesses that have migrated toward the interstate, and nearly everyone will tell you that Black and white residents get along really well. But in Vienna, as in hundreds of mostly white towns with similar histories across America, much is left unspoken. Around here, almost no one talks openly about the violence that drove out Black residents nearly 70 years ago, or even whispers the name these places were given: “sundown towns.” Unless they’re among the handful of Black residents. We wanted to take...

    Black Lives Matter is the operational arm of “critical race theory,” the postmodern philosophy of “critical theory” applied to race. Critical theory suffers an inescapable epistemological conundrum. It’s the Liar’s Paradox: If a Cretan says all Cretans are liars, is he to be believed? Or, in the case of critical theory: If a theory denies objective or universal truths, claiming that the powers-that-be subconsciously construct “reality” by projecting their will to power onto the transcendent screen of axiomatic certainty, all to perpetuate structures of power in which they’re on top, then does not critical theory itself fall under that same...
