    A record 51% of NFL team employees identify as people of color and/or women, the league revealed Thursday in advance of its quarterly owners meeting next week. The accounting includes people who work in football operations and business operations, as well as on coaching staffs and in executive roles. It does not include players or members of the league office. According to separate data, 57% of league office employees identify as people of color and/or women.
  • Does anybody really understand the meaning of diversity and tolerance?

    12/07/2023 11:49:22 AM PST · by nickcarraway · 12 replies
    Clearly, there are a lot of people out there who don't understand the meaning of diversity and tolerance. Unfortunately, quite a few happen to attend our prestigious university. And lately, diversity and tolerance have become part of a feeling of negativity that is gaining strength on this campus. What I wish to do is point out the misunderstandings about the D&T combo that have become evident over the past few weeks. First off, let's try and define diversity. Grouping together a bunch of definitions on, I'd say that diversity is the existence of a state of hetereogenioty at a...

    Bureaucracy raises the cost of higher education while clamping down on speech..

    The Navy announced they ‘safely’ recovered the Military plane that overshot the runway and has been stuck in Kaneohe Bay for almost two weeks. Kaneohe Bay (HawaiiNewsNow) -- The Navy announced they ‘safely’ recovered the Military plane that overshot the runway and has been stuck in Kaneohe Bay for almost two weeks. Navy officials say it took meticulous planning and assembling specialized equipment from off island, a multidisciplinary team of military and civilian experts to carefully raise the P-8A Poseidon from the bay. Officials say the operation lasted 13 hours, beginning at 6:30 a.m., Dec. 2. The aircraft was floated...
  • Drunk and Asleep on the Job: Air Traffic Controllers Pushed to the Brink

    The New York Times ^ | Dec 02, 2023 | Emily Steel, Sydney Ember
    A nationwide shortage of controllers has resulted in an exhausted and demoralized work force that is increasingly prone to making dangerous mistakes. One air traffic controller went into work drunk this summer and joked about “making big money buzzed.” Another routinely smoked marijuana during breaks. A third employee threatened violence and then “aggressively pushed” a colleague who was directing airplanes. The incidents were extreme examples, but they fit into a pattern that reveals glaring vulnerabilities in one of the most important protective layers of the nation’s vaunted aviation safety system. In the past two years, air traffic controllers and others...

    Have you ever been to Hamburg's Stadtpark? They call it the "green heart" of the city, over 350 acres of woods and lakes and meadows, playgrounds and sports fields and concert stages, plus Germany's largest planetarium. It's also a great place to rape someone. So a fifteen-year-old girl gets dragged into the bushes by a gang of four "youths". They rape her, and take the trouble to film themselves doing so. Because, after all, if you gang-rape someone, you want to have something to show to the lads who weren't able to make it. When they're sated and push off,...

    On those bleak corners of the Internet that fret about economic growth, social cohesion, and other boring stuff, there’s a common question: What the heck happened in 1971? On one chart after another for the United States, there is a pattern of steady growth and improvement in life that suddenly goes haywire right around 1971. Wage growth stagnated for all but the richest Americans. Inequality explodes. Housing prices began a long upward march that has yet to level out. Fertility rates crashed while illegitimacy surged. And so on, and so on. Many other nations have data that tells a similar...

Pauline O'Reilly: "We are restricting freedom but we're doing it for the common good...Yes you have rights, but they are restricted for the common good." — Chief Nerd (@TheChiefNerd) November 27, 2023 The obvious objection is that this is the rationale of totalitarian monsters throughout history. But, in our time, it's worse than that - because, when "diversity is our strength", there is no "common good".

    Today's headline may become a regular feature here at SteynOnline - because in the vibrantly multicultural west the stabbing of the native population is becoming a routine event. Following Saturday's pogrom at a village dance in rural France, in Dublin yesterday three schoolgirls and a member of staff were stabbed. Or as the BBC put it, lapsing into the passive voice: Three children and a school care assistant were injured in a knife attack in the city centre. Oh, that's so sad. Did the knife attack them all on its own or was there a human being as its accomplice?...

It’s a troubling sign when our military prioritizes diversity over defense. But sadly, this aligns with the progressive obsession for celebrating “firsts”—be it the first female president or the first cross-dressing, luggage-stealing Department of Energy employee. However, the problem with this unprofessional approach is the shift in focus from the actual job that has to get done to aimlessly promoting a laundry list of social issues. When you lose sight of the primary...

Investigators are still looking into the incident, though early reports suggest the air traffic controllers were responsible. ... “We just had a midair,” the pilot of the Hawker is heard saying in an audio recording posted on, which shares live and archived recordings of air traffic control radio transmissions. Someone in the control tower responds by saying, “Say what?” “You guys cleared somebody to take off or...
  • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion—and the Elimination of Jews

    All of our institutions—government, education, media, professions, and industry—are formally and fully committed to “social justice,” the explicit specifics of which are diversity, equity, and inclusion, with the quiet part being the elimination of Jews. The quiet part is not often said explicitly, except during the infamous “Israel Apartheid Week” celebrations at our universities. But after Hamas's sadistic atrocities against Israelis on 7 October, the widespread and enthusiastic celebrations on American campuses and in our streets shouted out the quiet part. “From the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea, Palestine Shall Be Free [of Jews].” Hamas, the heroes of the...

    A deranged trans shooter killed six in a horrific massacre at a Nashville Christian school back in April. The deceased shooter, Audrey “Aiden” Hale, left behind a manifesto. Nashville Police refused to share it with the public. We learned this week why. In screenshots obtained by Steven Crowder, Hale vented her murderous rage towards whites, whom she referred to as privileged “crackers.” Despite being white herself, the shooter wanted to kill those like her. This rhetoric isn’t found in the dark corners of 4chan. Anti-white hate is part of school curricula throughout the country. It’s broadcast by television channels and...

    The past month has led to agonizing reappraisals among some mainstream Jewish-American liberals over the traditional Jewish-American shibboleth that diversity must be good for the Jews. Not surprisingly to anybody who has been paying cold-blooded attention to the past half century, the older, unfashionably homogeneous American population has turned out to be wildly positive toward the Jewish state in its moment of crisis, while the younger, diverse upcoming generation finds itself roughly evenly split over whether the real bad guys are Hamas or Israel. In the wake of the October 7th atrocities, the Harvard/Harris Poll asked, “In general in this...

    After more than 20 years of working for his hometown newspaper, the Democrat and Chronicle in Rochester, N.Y., Steve Bradley was laid off amid pandemic-induced cost-cutting in May 2020. He was crushed, but he eventually took a communications job for a local school district. Sitting in the bleachers at the school softball field in July 2022, Bradley took a phone call from an unknown number. He listened as J. Nelson Thomas, an employment lawyer he’d never met, presented a jarring claim: Bradley was laid off because he is White. Now, Bradley is one of five named plaintiffs in a proposed...

    Governor Hairspray doesn't pay attention much to California's budget numbers when he signs off on a bill. It's as if putting on a green visor would mess up his costly coif. So, in no surprise to the rest of us, Gavin Newsom was in for a surprise. ... When Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a law that set a first-in-the-nation minimum wage for healthcare workers, three words in a bill analysis foretold potential concerns about its cost: “Fiscal impact unknown.” Now, three weeks after Newsom signed SB 525 into law — giving medical employees at least $25 an hour, including support...
