    'There's a sense that conservatism is normal, and that white conservative men are the norm' MSNBC's AM Joy host Joy Reid on Sunday likened the coverage of President Donald Trump to the media's treatment of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Reid and her panel spent several minutes going after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) and claimed he was helping Trump allegedly empower white nationalism, according to Newsbusters. After other panelists spoke, Reid jumped into the conversation to suggest McConnell was intentionally trying to destroy the United States for minorities before they gain power in the future....

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Cory Booker on Thursday said he would create a White House office to combat white supremacy and hate crimes if elected, becoming the latest Democratic presidential candidate to call for action after a racially motivated massacre in Texas. Booker said he would also require the FBI and the Justice Department to allocate the same level of resources and attention to white supremacist-inspired violence as they devote to international terrorism.

    In the early days of the run-up to the 2016 election, I was just beginning to prepare a class on whiteness to teach at Yale University, where I had been newly hired.... I wanted my students to gain an awareness of a growing body of work by sociologists, theorists, historians and literary scholars in a field known as “whiteness studies”.... Given the seeming novelty of such white writing and the urgency of understanding white support for Ronald Reagan, ‘critical whiteness studies’ gained media attention and a small foothold in universities.” This area of study aimed to make visible a history...

    The DNC held a forum for candidates hoping to become chairman of the Democratic National Committee on Monday at George Washington University. One candidate, Sally Boynton Brown, the executive director of Idaho's Democratic Party, urged Democrats to provide "training" to teach people to be "sensitive" and "how to shut their mouths if they are white." "My job is to shut other white people down when they want to interrupt," Brown said. SALLY BOYNTON BROWN: I’m a white woman, I don’t get it... My job is to listen and be a voice and shut other white people down when they want...

    A few days before President Trump’s Twitter rant against four congresswomen of color, a few thousand progressives gathered in Philadelphia to hear speakers exhort them to make race a central issue in the 2020 election. “We’ve got to center racial justice,” Rashad Robinson, the executive director of Color of Change, told the Netroots Nation conference. Robinson told the audience that “racial justice is a strategy for gaining power and winning power.” Robinson represents a left wing of the party that wants to confront Trump’s demagoguery on race and identity head on, not shying away from the topic. “Democrats for years...

City Department of Education brass are targeting a “white-supremacy culture” among school administrators — by disparaging ideas like “individualism,” “objectivity” and “worship of the written word,” The Post has learned.

    This whitewashing of history and white people in general will continue unless we learn from and accept the past rather than demolish it For the first time, Democrat candidates for president won’t be allowed to avoid bowing at the altar of racial grievance to win the 2020 nomination. The now omnipresent racial grievance crowd that seeks acknowledgment of their perceived victimhood may insist that neither frontrunner Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders are “woke” enough to satisfy their ideological demands.

    COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — As Peter Johnson and Emily Neal waited for Senator Kirsten Gillibrand to arrive at Barley’s, a brick-lined sports bar in southwestern Iowa, they gamed out possible nominees in the Democratic presidential primary. Mr. Johnson, a 27-year-old law student, said the large field was a great equalizer, and “if at the end of it we get an old white guy, someone who represents the status quo, it’ll be because they’ve proven themselves.” Ms. Neal, a dental hygienist, made an agonized face at Mr. Johnson, her boyfriend. Wouldn’t something be lost, she asked, if the historically diverse slate...

    The Post Millennial ^ | April 17, 2019 | Roberto Wakerell-Cruz
    Perhaps Library Journal was intending to be provocative when they tweeted out a blog post by Sofia Leung, a librarian from “unceded Wampanoag land” (Massachusetts) about how libraries perpetrate whiteness through their collections. The concept is one of critical race theory. Which by the way, it has always been interesting to me that intellectuals and those associated with academia will argue that race doesn’t exist, yet filter their entire world view through the power dynamics of race relations. With that in mind, let’s take a look at what Leung had to say about whiteness in libraries: “Library collections continue to...

    One of strangest developments in today's internet culture is how website dictionaries, which one might presume to be objective, have dabbled in "woke" leftist politics as a way of drawing clicks. USA Today reporter Jessica Guynn, who explains that her job is to explore how the digital world can "amplify bias and widen disparities," delighted in reporting how the term "white fragility" has been added to dictionaries as a result of racial discussions on social media. Sociologist Robin Di Angelo, one in the endless line of perpetually bored, arrogant and/or ignorant "experts" on race, coined the term "white fragility" in...

    Teacher claims: "This institutionalizes "white fragility". A code of ethics for public school teachers that was recently introduced in the Maine Legislature is making headlines, and will serve as an important test-case for efforts to prohibit indoctrination in our nation’s schools. But local educators are responding with hysteria to this commonsense education reform proposal, even as its legislative sponsor responds with calm and logic. The bill, LD-589, was introduced by Rep. Larry Lockman and co-sponsored by several of his colleagues in the state legislature. It establishes a code of ethics for professional conduct that must be observed by public school...
  • ‘Mary Poppins,’ and a Nanny’s Shameful Flirting With Blackface

    01/30/2019 3:47:33 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 24 replies
    “Mary Poppins Returns,” which picked up four Oscar nominations last week, is an enjoyably derivative film that seeks to inspire our nostalgia for the innocent fantasies of childhood, as well as the jolly holidays that the first “Mary Poppins” film conjured for many adult viewers. Part of the new film’s nostalgia, however, is bound up in a blackface performance tradition that persists throughout the Mary Poppins canon, from P. L. Travers’s books to Disney’s 1964 adaptation, with disturbing echoes in the studio’s newest take on the material, “Mary Poppins Returns.” One of the more indelible images from the 1964 film...

    A University of Georgia (UGA) teaching assistant wrote Wednesday on Facebook that “some white people may have to die for black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom." He added that to suggest otherwise is “ahistorical and dangerously naive.” UGA philosophy TA Irami Osei-Frimpong made the comment during a conversation on the Overheard at UGA Facebook page. The comment has since been deleted. Osei-Frimpong claimed in May 2017 that Facebooksuspended him for quoting from an article which detailed how Texas A&M professor Tommy Curry had said “in order to be equal, in order to be...

    California Women’s March cancels upcoming event for being “overwhelmingly white” The California chapter of the Women’s March has canceled an event that had been scheduled for next month, because it would have been “overwhelmingly white.”The group’s official statement on the cancellation says (the bolding is mine):“The local organizers are continuing to meet and discuss how to broaden representation in the organizing committee to create an event that represents and supports peoples who live here in Humboldt. Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community… Instead of pushing forward with crucial...

    When asked about his thoughts on the 2020 field, outgoing California Governor Jerry Brown (D) recently told the Associated Press that white men will “probably be running things for quite a bit of time” and wondered, “What’s wrong with white men?” The Associated Press asked Brown, who recently told NPR that national Democrats are becoming too radical for voters, for a piece over the weekend if having three white men—Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), former Vice President Joe Biden, and Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke—as his party’s early 2020 frontrunners hurts Democrats, especially after the 2018 midterm elections in which Democrats...

    The clothing chain Forever 21 said they were sorry for hiring a white model to sell its new “Black Panther” sweater, which has the words “Wakanda Forever” on the front. Of course, the film “Black Panther” broke ground, not only in the box office, but for being the first Black superhero movie to get major studio backing. The predominantly Black cast was also a different look for a superhero film, so many believed the person who modeled the sweater should’ve been Black....

    A University of Manitoba student says hateful messages posted on campus and sent to at least one fax machine add an "element of fear" to being on school grounds. "I think it's sickening," said Charlene Hallett. "But, on the other side too, I want to roll my eyes and say, "You know what? No, you don't get to try to intimidate us this way.'"  Sheets of paper with the phrase "It's okay to be white" were taped to walls around the U of M campus this week. Faxes with the same phrase were sent to offices around the campus, including the women's and gender studies program. Hallett is...

    During an appearance on NBC’s “Late Night” with Seth Meyers, film maker Michael Moore called on “angry white American guys” to “give it up” because their demographic time is over. “They are fanatical about this because they know their time is up. And it’s sort of the angry white guy, which actually — I’m really Trump’s demographic,” said Moore. “I’m an angry white guy over 50 with a high school education. So that’s me. So if I could just speak to my fellow angry white American guys who are semi-uneducated like me. Dudes, give it up. We’ve been running the...
