  • The City of Seattle held a training session for white employees called “Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness.”

    The City of Seattle held a training session for white employees called “Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness.” So I did a public records request to find out exactly what this means. Let's go through it together ... First, diversity trainers informed white participants that "objectivity," "individualism," "intellectualization," and "comfort" are all vestiges of internalized racial oppression.... What's next? The City of Seattle diversity trainers encourage white employees to "practice self-talk that affirms [their] complicity in racism" and work on "undoing your own whiteness." Then they go through a flow chart that outlines how white people "cause harm to POC,"...
  • 7 Ways White Women Have Used Their Privilege To Fuel Riots And Mayhem

    The Federalist ^ | 06/25/2020 | By Emily Jashinsky and Madeline Osburn
    Social media is awash with curious images of woke white women creating mayhem at Black Lives Matter demonstrations. They’ve burned down a Wendy’s, set fire to cop cars, screamed obscenities in the faces of police officers, and assaulted a Wisconsin lawmaker.It’s strange to observe white women in pricey athleisure scream at black cops and dress like they’re in “The Purge” to set fast food restaurants ablaze. It raises a question as to why members of the fairer sex are on the frontlines of riotous efforts to support a movement that insists they’re racist, capitalism is racist, and the whole...
  • Oregon County Issues Face Mask Order That Exempts Non-White People (Only Whites Have To Wear Masks)

    Lincoln County, Oregon, has exempted non-white people from a new order requiring that face coverings be worn in public — to prevent racial profiling. Health officials announced last week residents must wear face coverings in public settings where they may come within six feet of another individual who is not from the same household. But people of color do not have to follow the new rule if they have “heightened concerns about racial profiling and harassment” over wearing the masks, officials said. “No person shall intimidate or harass people who do not comply,” health officials said. With mask requirements becoming...
  • Double Standards – Cop Walks Away Free After Shooting White Male Multiple Times While Ex-Atlanta Officer Was Charged With Killing Of Rayshard Brooks

    The former Atlanta police officer facing murder charges in the death of Rayshard Brooks was reprimanded for pointing his gun at a car he and other officers were pursuing in a 2016 chase that violated policy, according to personnel records released by the Atlanta Police Department. Hundreds of pages of documents regarding the ex-officer, Garrett Rolfe, were made public Friday, as the city continued to face upheaval over the June 12 shooting in a Wendy’s parking lot. At least nine officers have resigned since June, interim police chief Rodney Bryant said Saturday. Others have called out sick, citing unease over...

    Los Angeles Lakers chief executive officer and governor Jeanie Buss shared a photograph of a letter on her Instagram account Friday containing racist and misogynistic epithets "so that everyone can see the hate is real and living out there," she wrote. The two-sentence letter, composed on a typewriter, begins with "Dear Whore" and continues with more vitriol.
  • Professor Calls For White People To Die, College Insists That He Did Nothing Wrong – While White Professor Is Being Investigated Over ‘Black Privilege’ Tweet

    A black professor tweeted that he wants white people to die and supports “fighting white people,” concerned individuals notified his university. However, instead of firing or even punishing him, the campus administration insists that he did nothing wrong. For Irami Osei-Frimpong, every discrepancy within minority communities can be reduced to racial inequality, namely the oppression of white people. Additionally, he has been afforded a gratifying platform to spew this racial propaganda and spread the idea of victim superiority at the University of Georgia, convincing young people that a certain race of people is inherently racist and, therefore, evil. Fighting White...

    ‘Y’all should have seen how QUICK the white people packed their bags and left!’ An apparent University of Virginia student urged white people to leave the campus Multicultural Student Center, claiming that it is a “space for people of color” and that there were “too many white people” in the building, according to video that surfaced Wednesday afternoon. The video, tweeted by the Young America’s Foundation, showed a young black woman pacing around a room while making a “public service announcement,” in her words: If ya’ll didn’t know, this is the MSC [Multicultural Student Center], and frankly there’s just too...

    If you or one of your children are heading off to get a degree from Yale, you’ve missed out on the last chance to enroll in their course called “Introduction to Art History: Renaissance to the Present” because this semester is the last time it will be offered. It’s not that the course wasn’t popular. It was always full. Unfortunately, the curriculum was simply too full of the work of straight, white, European men. Katherine Timpf at National Review has the details. According to an article in the Yale Daily News, “Introduction to Art History: Renaissance to the Present”...

    I forget sometimes that Donald Trump is president. I’ve tried to convince myself that this is intentional; a willful misremembering of reality necessary to process his span in office. There’d be a nobility there, I think, as this would suggest I’m so empathetic, so down, so woke, that I can’t even sleep without tricking myself into amnesia.

    The past 24 hours provided a clear and painful picture of the momentous challenges American Jews face these days. The day began with news that President Trump has issued an executive order designed, the White House said, to fight anti-Semitism. Reporting on the order, The New York Times stressed that it will “effectively interpret Judaism as a race or nationality, not just a religion,” and that it “could be used to stifle free speech and legitimate opposition to Israel’s policies toward Palestinians in the name of fighting anti-Semitism.” Leftist NGOs echoed the same talking point, and a phalanx of pundits...

    Some polls in recent weeks have provided an encouraging picture for President Donald Trump of strengthening support among black voters. I like these kinds of reports. But I wonder how much of reality they are really capturing. The Wall Street Journal, for instance, reports on new polling from the Kaiser Family Foundation showing outsize support from blacks for "Medicare for All." According to this report, 74% percent of blacks compared with 69% of Hispanics and 44% of whites support a single-payer health care plan. Even when told that there would be a high likelihood that such a plan would mean...

    Two 17-year-old boys accused of harassing four African-American middle schoolgirls — using racial slurs and urinating on one of the victims — are facing charges including bias intimidation and lewdness. Police say the boys are of Indian descent. Instead of asking what the boys’ reported racial identity tells us about the nature of the attack, we should see the boys as enacting American whiteness through anti-black assault in a very traditional way.

    Jeromy Brown, a 46-year-old teacher in Iowa, considers President Trump a white supremacist. "If the shoe fits, then say it, and the shoe fits him," Brown said, while waiting in a "selfie line" at an Elizabeth Warren rally in August. "Why should he be excused from that label?" Brown, like many white liberal voters, appreciates that some Democratic presidential candidates have begun explicitly referring to Trump as a white supremacist. His top choice, Warren, told The NPR Politics Podcast in August that "when the white supremacists call Donald Trump one of their own, I tend to believe them." But she's...

    Over the years, many prominent conservatives have asked me why blacks are not more involved in the Republican Party and the conservative movement. The answer is very simple: Conservatives have shown no demonstrable indication to the black community that we are welcomed by the party or the conservative movement. As a matter of fact, conservatives force “real” blacks to make a false choice: to be black or conservative, as though we can’t be both. Most blacks are conservative by nature and by upbringing. “Real” blacks don’t check their blackness at the door when they join a conservative group. We still...

    In 2008, Barack Obama won 26% of the evangelical vote; in 2012, he won 21%. Hillary Clinton won 16%. If she had simply replicated Obama's performance among evangelicals, she would likely be President. In his new book, Do We Have a Center? 2016, 2020 and the Challenge of the Trump Presidency, Walter Frank, author of Law and the Gay Rights Story and Making Sense of the Constitution, warns that Democrats ignore the many lessons of the 2016 campaign at their peril. "The Democrats," Frank counsels, "are in grave trouble if they don't understand exactly what happened in 2016 and all...

    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.

    MSNBC contributor and BBC anchor Katty Kay argued on Wednesday that President Donald Trump's administration wants to keep the United States a "majority white country" after a top immigration official claimed the poem under the Statue of Liberty welcoming immigrants was referring only to Europeans. Kay, who was a guest host along with MSNBC's Billie Geist on Morning Joe on Wednesday, made the remarks while leading a panel discussion about the Trump administration's new immigration rule that would deny green cards to immigrants who are expected to access food stamps and other government subsidies. Pointing out that Hispanics make up...

    Helen Hudson will tell you what the 15th Ward was like when she was a girl. In the 1950s and early ’60s, the Syracuse neighborhood was home to thousands of predominantly black residents who had settled in the growing upstate New York city during and after the Great Migration. Those who remember it, like Hudson, describe it as thriving, self-sufficient community they were proud to call home. “Oh my god, the things we had,” she said recently, her voice softening with the distinct twang of nostalgia. “We had two bowling alleys. We had meat markets.” Charlie Pierce-El will tell you...

    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...
