    Texas congressional candidate Wesley Hunt (R) believes the economy and inflation will lead to a “big red wave, particularly when it comes to Black and Brown people” this midterm season. Speaking to NBC’s Zinhle Essamuah on Sunday, Hunt said Black excellence is needed everywhere and that Black Republicans can bring change to the Black community. “At least we’re in the room to at least add some color, if you will,” said Hunt, who is favored to win his race in a new Texas district. A record 178 Black candidates are running this year as Republicans. Though Black voters make up...

    UK Civil servants have axed the word ‘Christmas’ from a proposed government campaign, for fear the term will offend minorities. British civil servants have apparently embraced their inner Scrooge, vetoing the use of the word ‘Christmas’ from being used in a coronavirus testing drive aimed at students, arguing that the use of the term runs the risk of offending minorities within the country. The campaign, which reportedly would have revolved around ministers using the slogan “Don’t take COVID home for Christmas,” is part of a larger government effort to limit the spread of the Chinese coronavirus after two cases of...

    President Joe Biden plans Tuesday to propose new rules that will award minority-owned businesses 50 percent more contracts, ignoring a fair bidding process to lessen the “racial wealth gap.” “Under the Biden proposal, the administration would aim to increase the amount of federal contracting dollars given to small disadvantaged business by 50 percent over five years, amounting to an additional $100 billion in funding for those businesses,” the Hill reported.

    There was a time in America — a rather long time — when the most open-minded thing a person could do was not see color.These days, it appears “open” and “closed” have traded places.According to the Left side of the cultural aisle, the enlightened among us notice shades of skin — and proceed accordingly.The message is being made increasingly clear, in various sectors of society.And — so far as I can tell — we’re being told not only to see others by their race, but ourselves.That’s how we wind up with stories such as these:Ivy League School Offers Rock Climbing...

    In an interview with The Boston Globe, NFL assistant coach Eugene Chung revealed that he had interviewed for a coaching position in the off season but was told that he wasn’t right for the job because he isn’t considered the “right minority.”Chung is Korean-American and was the first Asian-American first-round draft pick in the NFL after an historic college career at Virginia Tech. He played three seasons with the New England Patriots before moving on to the Jacksonville Jaguars and ending his career with the Indianapolis Colts. Chung was elected into the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame in 2008....

    Documentary filmmaker and liberal activist Michael Moore said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Live” that white people voted for Republicans because they were “having a hard time” becoming a minority in America due to changing demographics. On the coronavirus stimulus bill passing, Moore said, “I’m just so happy to be in this moment here in the last few minutes and what has happened in Congress. It’s such a historic moment. I think in the next few weeks, people, the average Americans, will see the coming results of this. They are going to feel it. They are going to feel government helping them...

    Today in "affirmative action for public company boards" news...In a move that does little to help either diversity or equality, NASDAQ is now pushing for SEC approval of a rule that would require public companies on its exchange to have at least one woman director and one "diverse" director - meaning a director that self-identifies as an underrepresented minority or LGBTQ. You know, like how Elizabeth Warren "self-identified" as Native American.Oddly enough, there's still no requirement that Board Members need to know how to read financial statements. But, we digress.The exchange is also pushing for its more than 3,000 companies...
  • China sterilising ethnic minority women in Xinjiang, report says

    The Guardian ^ | 06/29/2020
    Chinese authorities are carrying out forced sterilisations of women in an apparent campaign to curb the growth of ethnic minority populations in the western Xinjiang region, according to research published on Monday. The report, based on a combination of official regional data, policy documents and interviews with ethnic minority women, has prompted an international group of lawmakers to call for a United Nations investigation into China’s policies in the region. The move is likely to enrage Beijing, which has denied trampling on the rights of ethnic groups in Xinjiang, and which on Monday called the allegations “baseless”. The country is...

    State Attorney General Letitia James is calling on the New York Police Department (NYPD) to step up measures to bridge the gap between what seems to be a disparity between social-distancing enforcement of black and Hispanic people as compared to white people. “The apparent unequal enforcement of social-distancing policies is deeply troubling, and deepens the divide between law enforcement and the people they are tasked to protect,” James said in a statement Wednesday. Statistics released by the department just a day earlier showed that more than 90 percent of coronavirus-related arrests made throughout New York City since the lockdown restrictions...

No arrests were made.Tyler Miller, one of the organizers of the event, had said rural areas should be treated differently than more urban locations with more coronavirus cases. Earlier Sunday, Inslee decried President Donald Trump’s call to “liberate” parts of the country from social-distancing decrees, saying Trump...

    The Republican Party is willing to get people killed to immunize itself from the threat of democratic accountability. Whatever happens in Wisconsin’s primary and State Supreme Court elections Tuesday, that should be the headline. **SNIP** By Monday, it was clear that Wisconsin had no means of holding a free and fair election this week. A majority of the state’s poll workers had announced that they were not willing to jeopardize their lives by greeting continuous streams of voters for hours on end (in often tightly packed and poorly ventilated quarters). In Milwaukee, election officials revealed that they only had enough...

    Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer is resigning. But he says he will stay on as leader until his replacement is chosen and continue to serve as MP for Regina—Qu’Appelle. His resignation comes as a direct result of new revelations that he was using Conservative Party money to pay for his children’s private schooling, according to Conservative sources who spoke with Global News. Senior Conservatives say the expenditures were made without the knowledge or approval of the Conservative fund board, including the chair of the board. There are also calls for the party’s executive director, Dustin van Vugt, to resign over...

    Eyeing stricter controls in the federal government’s minority contracting program, a House oversight panel on Tuesday is expected to address the findings of a Times investigation that showed that companies received more than $300 million in taxpayer-funded contracts based on unverified claims that their owners were Native American. The committee oversees the U.S. Small Business Administration, which certifies federal contractors as minority-owned. Its subcommittee on investigations will conduct the hearing.

    WASHINGTON, DC — Societies must end the use of the word “minority” and redefine the “concept of citizenship,” a top Vatican official argued Thursday at a religious freedom event hosted by the U.S. Department of State. The comments from Archbishop Paul Richard Gallagher, the Holy See’s secretary for relations with states, came during a three-day summit, July 16 through 18, at the State Department — the second annual Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom.Gallagher said there is a “need to develop and respect the concept of citizenship,” adding: The concept of citizenship is based on the equality of rights and duties...

    BOSTON—The man behind the scheme to help wealthy students get into elite colleges by cheating on tests and faking athletic credentials also advised some families to falsely claim students were racial minorities, exploiting the push to diversify campuses, according to two people familiar with the situation. A son of Marjorie Klapper, a parent scheduled to plead guilty Friday for participating in the scheme, was incorrectly listed on his Common Application as being black and Hispanic, the people said. William “Rick” Singer, the college counselor who has agreed to plead guilty in the case and is awaiting sentencing, also arranged for...

    Okay, so Senator Warren had her friend take and analyize her DNA. He came up with the conclusion that she MAY BE 1/1024 Cherokee based on a marker that some Cherokee sometimes have. And the margin of error is 1/256. She may be 0.00097561 Cherokee. Does that count? The margin of error says that all of us may be 0.00390625 Cherokee. Shall we claim it as well?

    I sat in silence and bowed my head for the closing prayer as I had done nearly every Sunday for the past 21 years. This Sunday, however, I wanted to be at home, in tears, as I had found out the night before that I was pregnant. Thoughts were racing through my head of tragic visions of my future. I was 21, not married. I was once the "church girl." However, not one of those thoughts that were flooding my mind involved reaching out to my church. I'd seen the way that my church had treated my sister when she...

    Here is what is happening. This country has been ruled for a VERY long time by an oligarchy originating in Washington with supposedly two parties. Both parties have been pretending to be for one group of people or another when, in fact, they are all the same people. We have been the fools. They talk to each other, they visit each other's favorite places, they go on vacations together (I know for a fact that Republicans and Democrats go TOGETHER to hunt white tail deer and birds in Northern Mexico - Mexicans who have worked on the ranches have told...

    In Turkey, a NATO member and a candidate for the European Union, citizens are systematically persecuted or even murdered for having been born non-Turkish or non-Muslim. For decades, the Turkish government and much of the Turkish public have victimized millions of people – Jews, Greeks, Armenians, Assyrians, Kurds and Alevis. Here are six victims whose life stories I hope will give you an idea about what it means to live as a minority member in Turkey. Yasef Yahya, 39, a Jewish dentist from Turkey, was brutally murdered on Aug. 21, 2003 in the Şişli district of Istanbul. Yahya was married...
