    Students from one of the most selective New York City public high schools, which is half white, staged a walkout to advocate for more diversity in the city’s schools. About 300 students at the prestigious Beacon High School walked out of class on Monday to demonstrate against the school’s stringent admissions standards, according to the New York Times. They believe that rigid screening procedures have contributed to segregation in the school system. “The abundance of privilege in our school is so universal that it usually goes unquestioned and unnoticed,” said Toby Paperno, a white student at the school. During the...

    Diversity and inclusion isn’t going so well at Syracuse University. In response to anti-black and anti-Asian graffiti found in a bathroom and bulletin board in a campus dorm last week, students are holding a sit-in and making several demands of the administration, according to The Daily Orange. One of those demands: the ability to deny roommates based on their race.

    Blacks destroy school systems and schools,” read one letter to county officials about the busing plan. “Black families (as a core group) don’t value education like other cultural groups,” read another. “The Black Community needs to take responsibility for the behavior of its people,” a third declared, “or the white man will take them back to place where they don’t want to go.” Don’t worry, though. The writer insisted they were not being racist. These letters were written in recent months in response to a Howard County (Maryland) Council resolution calling on the county school system to desegregate its schools....

    Wait long enough, and everything comes around again. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), one of the wokest womyn in the world, has this week blazed bold new trails by calling for the revival of not one, but two tried-and-true practices that have inexplicably fallen into neglect in American politics: Jim Crow segregation laws and the arrest of one’s political opponents. This brave leader said in a Detroit speech that if Trump Cabinet members failed to comply with congressional subpoenas, “they’re trying to figure out, no joke, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them? We don’t know. Where do...

    A South African court has partially banned flying the country's apartheid-era national flag, saying such display amounted to "hate speech" and "harassment". Wednesday's landmark ruling in South Africa's Equality Court in Johannesburg barred the so-called "apartheid flag" - comprised of three stripes of orange, white and blue with the emblems of Britain, the Orange Free State and the South African Republic at its centre - from being displayed except for academic, artistic or journalistic purposes.

    Beto O'Rourke, Woke Why did the Civil Rights movement succeed? It might have failed. In the U.S., unlike in South Africa, black Americans didn’t make up a huge, oppressed majority. They constituted just 11 percent of the population. Nor did they wield proportionate economic power — the heritage of slavery and Jim Crow had seen to that. They weren’t well-armed. Gun control laws, which always disarm the most helpless, had made quite sure of that. The militant approach favored by Malcolm X, and later the Black Panthers, certainly frightened white people. But it could have just as easily provoked...

    Senator Kamala Harris, who lives with her white husband in one of the most segregated neighborhoods in Los Angeles, has come out with a call for busing children to distant schools to fight “segregation”. That’s great for Kamala, who has no children. Her stepson, Cole, who works at the William Morris Agency, which is about as diverse as his dad and S-Mamala’s Brentwood hood, won’t be bussed to work at more diverse talent agencies, and Ella, won’t be bused from her studies at Parsons School of Design (4% black) to a more diverse design college. Like most politicians, Harris wants...

    In 1965, Mary Jane McGuire, her husband Cyril and their three children received a letter from the Michigan State Highway Department. It informed them that their Lansing home, where the family had lived for the past decade, would be demolished to make way for construction of Interstate 496. The letter was followed by an offer of federal dollars to purchase their property, a number the McGuires felt was far below its actual value. The couple’s initial refusal to accept the offer meant they were one of the final families of their African-American neighborhood to be displaced for construction of the...

    Former First Lady Michelle Obama refused to defend Joe Biden as the former vice president is engulfed in controversy for his longstanding views on busing and his more recent praise of segregationists. On Saturday, Obama was asked at the Essence Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana, if she wanted to share her thoughts on the recent “dust up” between Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) at the first Democrat presidential debate last month. The former first lady pointedly refused to engage on the topic, simply saying “I do not.” Obama added that she was not new to “this rodeo” and...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden apologized Saturday for his recent remarks about his ability to work with segregationists during his time as a Senator. The remarks are his first mea culpa over the comments this campaign cycle. The White House hopeful maintained he had done the right thing by working across the aisle with people whose views he found “repugnant,” but apologized if he gave the impression he was praising the senators. “Everything they stood for offended me. They represented everything that I ran against.” Biden said in Sumter, S.C. “I do believe we have work to do, even with...

    Kamala Harris's emotional response to Joe Biden's busing record has less to do with segregation and more to do with virtue signaling. Democratic presidential hopeful Kamala Harris was the talk of the debate last week following her supposed smackdown of former vice president Joe Biden. In the exchange, Harris told Biden that it was “hurtful” to hear him speak positively about working with segregationists to “get things done” in the Senate. She then pivoted to Biden’s past opposition to desegregation busing, describing a “little girl” who, in the 1970s, was part of the second class in her California grade school...

    My memory on forced busing for school desegregation is a bit foggy, but I believe this big government statist social experiment was unpopular among parents (black and white) of children forced to be bused sometimes miles away to unfamiliar schools and neighborhoods. I don't think it lasted very long, nor was it successful, and may have eventually been ruled unconstitutional. Guess it was good for little Kamala, though. Anyone remember the details of this program?

    Former Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday dismissed calls to apologize for invoking his working relationships with two segregationist senators as an example of "civility," saying that his Democratic colleagues knew better. Asked by a reporter outside a fundraiser in Maryland whether he'd apologize for his Tuesday remarks, the Democratic presidential candidate responded, "Apologize for what?" "He knows better," Biden added, referencing Sen. Cory Booker's (D-N.J.) call to apologize for the remarks. "There’s not a racist bone in my body. I’ve been involved in civil rights my whole career. Period. Period. Period." Biden has faced mounting backlash in the past...
  • The Bay Area of 1970 was less racially segregated than it was in 2010

    The Bay Area was more racially segregated in 2010 than it was 40 years prior, a UC Berkeley paper published Tuesday found. Segregation in the Bay Area persisted and, in some cases, grew since 1970. Seven of the region’s nine counties had more segregation in 2010 than they did in 1970. The only two that saw declines — San Francisco and Alameda counties — remain classified as “high” segregation places. Meanwhile, Marin, Santa Clara, Sonoma and Napa counties had relatively large increases in segregation. That’s according to a brief from researchers at UC Berkeley’s Haas Institute for a Fair and...

    This month and next dozens of universities across the nation, from private top-tier schools to public state institutions, will host segregated graduation ceremonies and celebrations for their black graduates. These supplementary ceremonies are voluntary and are offered in addition to the universities’ regular graduations. Sometimes they’re co-hosted by black campus resource centers and various academic departments. They serve to give extra honors and recognition to black students earning their degrees. The popularity in offering these segregated graduations also seems to be growing. A new report by the National Association of Scholars that looked at 173 schools found that 76 of...

    The National Association of Scholars recently released a study documenting the voluntary racial segregation of students of color on nearly 200 college campuses across the country. The association has coined this trend “neo-segregation,” and noted in its report its rise returns college campuses to the “separate but equal” façade of the Jim Crow segregation era. “The time has come to bring down the curtain on neo-segregation the way that the Supreme Court in Brown and the Civil Rights Movement brought down the curtain on the old forms of segregation,” the report states. The 216-page report is the result of two years...

    A black high school graduate is suing her Mississippi school district because she claims she lost out on a college scholarship after a white male student with a lower GPA was named salutatorian instead of her. Olecia James, 18, filed the federal lawsuit against the Cleveland School District last week. The teenager claims that district officials took away the chance of her being salutatorian - the graduate with the second-best grades - of Cleveland Central High School because they 'feared white flight'.
