    A cadre of newly hired teachers will report to city schools this week following orientation sessions where they were given a book that includes an essay titled “Dear White Teacher,” The Post has learned. But unlike the Department of Education’s controversial “implicit bias” training — which, among other lessons, tells teachers that “racial equity” requires favoring black students over whites — the essay’s message is that white instructors should stop being afraid to discipline black students.
  • Oregon official objects to diversity training on white privilege, could be ‘shaming to Caucasians’

    Yamhill County’s Board of Commissioners approved a series of diversity training classes Thursday after debating the merits earlier in the month, when two of three board members argued that the training should not include the phrases “white privilege” or “microaggressions.” After opposition Aug. 6 and again Tuesday, the training was approved in McMinnville in a 2-1 vote. After the vote, Commissioner Mary Starrett said over email that she voted no on “a training that would have included training on ‘White Privilege,’ ” but that the other board members approved it.(snip) Starrett said the training had “red flags” and included “a...

    An adjunct professor from City University of New York says the “ideology of racialized terrorism” is the responsibility of all white people in the United States. In an interview with WBGO radio (which was taken offline shortly after being posted; the archived link is here), political science instructor Josie Gonsalves said that she has “seen enough” and proceeded to tie America’s racist and capitalist past to the current mass shootings of the present.

    The American Conservative ^ | July 26, 2019 | Peter Van Buren
    The exaggeration of white privilege has become a cornerstone of progressivism. It’s also one of the ways Democrats risk losing the 2020 presidential race, as it leads inexorably to the devaluation of voters needed to clinch the Electoral College. The problem with a race-based, victim-washed vision of 2019 America is that being white is not enough, and never has been. I was a diplomat for 24 years, about as privileged a job on paper as you can get. But inside the State Department, being white was only a start. The real criteria was “pale, male, and Yale.” Being white (the...
  • Biden concedes that under Obama 'a lot of people (white folks) were left behind'

    Joe Biden said the White House under President Barack Obama, when Biden was vice president, did not do enough to address the concerns of white working-class voters in the Rust Belt. "A lot of people were left behind," the 2020 Democratic candidate told the New York Times when discussing the post-recession economic recovery. "In areas where people were hard hit, I don't think we paid enough attention to their plight." Biden, 76, tried chalking up the disillusionment of white former Democratic voters to a messaging problem, saying Obama told him he didn't want to take "a victory lap [because] we...

    Seven years ago I wrote a piece for Democracy about where political trends would take us by 2024. Here’s one bit: Trend #5: The Republican Party will continue to become ever more dependent on the white vote, while the Democratic Party will depend ever more on minorities. ….So what does this all mean? One: Certain aspects of the culture wars will heat up. In particular, thanks to the increasingly polarized demographics of the two main political parties, fights over immigration and race may well be even more acrimonious than they are today. That’s all I said in that particular piece,...

    When exactly did racism become acceptable again? Anti-white racism has been a motivating force on the Left for a while now, but until recently they tried to hide it. Just a few years ago, you had to parse their language to decode their racism. Our colleges and universities concocted new phrases such a “white privilege” to express their hatred for people based upon the color of their skin. When challenged, they denied that the term “white privilege” was used to denigrate whites, but rather was simply a way to refer to social power inequality.

    (CNN) — A Florida man told Sheriff's deputies that he threw firecrackers under the bed of a sleeping 9-year-old girl in a "prank gone wrong," according to a post on the Okaloosa Sheriff's Office Facebook page. Matthew Morrison, 44, of Crestview, Florida, was arrested Saturday after deputies responded to a home after the explosion woke the little girl. The owner of the house where this happened told the Sheriff's office that Morrison lives in a tent outside the house and came inside without permission, according to the Sheriff's Office Facebook post. The homeowner told responding deputies he chased Morrison...

A teaching assistant at the University of Georgia (UGA), Irami Osei-Frimpong — who is also a graduate student — is facing expulsion over allegations that he had purposefully omitted a 2011 trespassing arrest from his admissions application, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The graduate student believes that the allegations over his admissions...

    The general election of 2020 was supposed to be a light at the end of the tunnel, a finishing blow for Donald Trump, and a mass rebuke of the bigotry that has fueled his support. “Supposed to be” is the operative phrase here. In one very important way, Donald Trump has already won the 2020 presidential election. “Democrats Know They Need White Male Voters,” blares an AP headline from earlier this month. The article cites Trump’s overwhelming support from white men (63 percent of whom voted Trump in 2016, with a smaller 60 percent majority voting Republican in the 2018...

    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...

    Caucasian populations are disproportionately contributing to climate change through their eating habits, which uses up more food — and emits more greenhouse gases — than the typical diets of black and Latinx communities, according to a new report published in the Journal of Industrial Ecology. Researchers tracked information from multiple databases to identify foods considered “environmentally intense” by requiring more precious resources such as water, land and energy to produce — and, as a result, releasing more greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide through production and distribution.

    Sara Thornton, head of Britain’s National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC), has said the law should be changed so forces can actively discriminate against white recruits in order to increase diversity. Currently, discriminating against people in job recruitment on the basis of certain “protected characteristics”, including race, sex, and sexuality, is technically illegal under the Equality Act of 2010. However, excluding certain people — generally white people, or at least white males — from supposed internships, even if they pay more than a typical working-class job, or deprioritising them from training schemes or workshops designed to boost employment prospects, is...

  • "Western Civilization" sometimes called "Christian Civilization" is now a racist concept?

    Western culture, sometimes equated with Western civilization, Occidental culture, the Western world, Western society, and European civilization, is a term used very broadly to refer to a heritage of social norms, ethical values, traditional customs, belief systems, political systems and specific artifacts and technologies that have some origin or association with Europe. The term also applies beyond Europe to countries and cultures whose histories are strongly connected to Europe by immigration, colonization, or influence. For example, Western culture includes countries in the Americas and Australasia, whose language and demographic ethnicity majorities are European. The development of western culture has been...
