    A new study shows that employers are less likely to call back applicants with Black-sounding names than those with white-sounding ones. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Chicago recently filed 83,000 fake job applications for 11,000 entry-level positions at multiple Fortune 500 companies with names like Brad, Greg, Darnell, Lamar, Amanda, Kristen, Ebony and Latoya. The study, “A Discrimination Report Card,” found that the white-sounding applicant names were favored up to 24 percent more than the likely Black applicants. “It’s of course upsetting and discouraging that in the year 2023 and so on that this...
  • More evidence of anti-white bias at Google

    Following Google’s anti-white Gemini debacle, no one in their right minds needs convincing of their discriminatory practices anymore. Still, it’s appropriate to document another example of anti-white bias at Google. It’s almost unfortunate that Google makes some good products. It instigates a form of cognitive dissonance because they are so woke -- and sometimes worthy of boycott. The latest example being their new AI photo editing tools available to Google Photos users. Or is it more sinister than simply being woke? On the high-profile webpage touting the Photos enhancements are several images showing before and after shots. What they don’t...

    “When natural disasters strike, they don’t discriminate based on race and sex. Neither should the Department of Agriculture,” request for federal injunction says. A group of white farmers in Texas is asking a federal judge to block the U.S. Department of Agriculture from using race, gender or other “socially disadvantaged” traits to determine who gets disaster and pandemic farm aid and how much, arguing the agency’s current administration of eight emergency funding programs is unconstitutionally discriminatory. “When natural disasters strike, they don’t discriminate based on race and sex. Neither should the Department of Agriculture,” the group of farmers wrote in...

  • Seattle Public Schools shuts down gifted and talented program for being oversaturated with white and Asian students

    Seattle Public Schools is dismantling its gifted and talented program, which administrators argued was oversaturated with white and Asian students, in favor of a more “inclusive, equitable and culturally sensitive” program. The district began phasing out its Highly Capable Cohort schools and classrooms for advanced students in the 2021-22 school year due to racial inequities, the school district notes. The program will completely cease to exist by the 2027-28 school year, with a new enrichment-for-all model available in every school by the 2024-25 school year. “The program is not going away, it’s getting better,” school officials said on the district...
  • It’s ethnic discrimination to force NYC pizzerias, matzah-makers to comply with ‘green’ edict: new bill (only 6.82 years left)

    It’s ethnic discrimination to force Big Apple pizzerias and matzah-makers to cut the smoky pollutants from their wood- and coal-fired ovens, according to a new bill sponsored by a state lawmaker. Assemblyman Sam Pirozzolo (R-Staten Island) told the Post that his proposed law would exempt businesses — some of them legendary local establishments — from a controversial city green edict that orders them to reduce such emissions by 75%. “I’m trying to stop discrimination against ethnic restaurants. These misguided laws go against businesses that cook ethnic cuisine,” Pirozzolo said. “A cop just got killed. People are getting thrown in front...

    In the months since I was terminated for expressing opinions, I have learned that my experience is all too common in Big Law. I am a Navy SEAL and Iraq war veteran who transitioned back into civilian life as a lawyer. Recent experience has taught me that people with my beliefs and values are viewed as parochial, at best, and in any case are not welcomed by many of those who are considered “leaders” in the legal profession. One of the things I realized soon after I started practicing law is that there are very few practicing attorneys who are...

    Billionaire Nelson Peltz criticized Disney's film strategy as pursuing woke messaging instead of simply being entertaining. Owner of Trian Fund Management, Peltz has been rumored since 2023 to be seeking seats on Disney's board of directors for his company. With a reported $3.5 billion stake in the company, the investor has criticized CEO Bob Iger's reinstatement and other company moves. With Peltz launching criticisms at the company, Disney has claimed that Peltz hasn't "presented a single strategic idea" over the course of two years that he has campaigned for board seats. Peltz was asked in a recent interview about the...

    The Washington D.C. based Smithsonian Museum recently agreed to pay $50,000 to tourists who were previously kicked out for wearing pro-life apparel. According to CBN News, The National Air and Space Museum agreed to pay the settlement to a group of 12 plaintiffs, who are students of Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic School in Greenville, South Carolina, and their parents. The students initially filed a lawsuit after visiting the museum during the March for Life rally on Jan. 20, 2023. At the time, they all wore beanies with the words "Rosary PRO-LIFE" as they toured the Smithsonian. The American...

    U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres has declared reparations are due now to compensate for the trans-Atlantic slave trade as a way to tackle “its legacy” in today’s society, including “systemic racism and white supremacy.” In a statement to mark the U.N. International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery, Guterres said the past “laid the foundations for a violent discrimination system based on white supremacy.” “We call for reparatory justice frameworks to help overcome generations of exclusion and discrimination,” Guterres said.

    He doesn't specify that he wants white men to self-deport, but, come on, they're the people getting screwed by DEI, so they're the ones most likely to oppose it. And his response is just to make conditions at the company unlivable for them so that they'll leave, supposedly of their own accord, thus sparing the company the need to fire them and the hazard of racial discrimination lawsuits. Warner Bros. Discovery's Chief Global Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer Asif Sadiq recently shared his tact on how to get rid of opponents of DEI from major corporations.

    A college in North Carolina recently required student athletes to watch a video that claimed all white people are racist and that people of color could not be racist. Now, Davidson College alumni are calling on the college to change how it discusses topics like racism with students in the future, The College Fix reported. Not only were student athletes required to watch the film, titled “I’m Not Racist… Am I?” but they were required to do so on a Sunday, outside of normal school hours.

    Last year, conservatives began taking action against the “diversity, equity, and inclusion” bureaucracy. The Manhattan Institute released a model policy to abolish DEI, exposed abuses in public universities, and advised political leaders, most notably Florida governor Ron DeSantis, in the crafting of legislation abolishing public-university DEI programs at the state level. To date, three states—Florida, Texas, and Tennessee—have passed laws abolishing or restricting DEI. A total of 17 states have either passed such laws or are considering them. Our efforts are bearing fruit. Last week, the University of Florida, the flagship state institution, announced that it had dissolved its DEI...

    What happens when generations of children are reared to view others as less than human, unworthy of basic human rights? It creates a dysfunctional society, which has lost any sense of morality. It’s a society in which rape, torture, kidnapping, and the wanton murder of innocents is met not with moral outrage, but with celebration. It’s a society incapable of coexisting with others, because its values have diverged from anything considered “civilized.” When such a society is created, it must either subdue others around it or be subdued itself. There can be no negotiated peace when one side of a...

The San Francisco Chronicle reported: Dozens of people packed the San Francisco Board of Supervisors chamber Thursday to hear for the first time a resolution apologizing for the forced removal of Black communities from historic neighborhoods, ongoing tensions with the Police Department and underinvestment in key public services. A task force set up by the city released recommendations last summer...

    A federal court ruled Thursday that Louisiana’s state House and Senate district maps dilute black voting strength in violation of the Voting Rights Act, and has ordered the maps to be redrawn. The ruling by U.S. District Chief Judge Shelly Dick came just weeks after Louisiana Gov. Jeff Landry signed on Jan. 22 a bill creating a new congressional map that establishes a second majority-black district. The new map reshapes Louisiana’s 6th District, that of Rep. Garret Graves (R-La.), giving it a black population of around 56 percent and making it the state’s second majority-black district. In her ruling on...
