    The diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) training forced on criminal investigators with the Internal Revenue Service featured content from a transgender professor who called for the “death of whiteness” in an academic journal article.The DEI training, obtained by Judicial Watch, was part of a mandatory continuing education program at the IRS, and began with a section by Dafina Lazarus Stewart titled, “Cultural Inclusion Is About Justice.” Stewart, a transgender-identifying woman, chairs a department at the University of Denver and has focused much of her academic work on “whiteness,” even calling on other academics to “commit to the death of whiteness.”Stewart,...

    A Harvard professor published a study that found no evidence of racial bias in police shootings – then "all hell broke loose," and he needed police protection. In 2016, Harvard Economics Professor Roland Fryer published a study to explore racial differences in the use of force by police. The study examined racial differences in non-lethal uses of force, such as "putting hands on civilians (which includes slapping or grabbing) or pushing individuals into a wall or onto the ground." The study found that Hispanics are more than 50% more likely to have an interaction with police that involves any use...

  • White 'Un-Privilege' In The NBA? Every Assault In The League Over The Past Year Has Been Towards White Players

    Three times over the past year, an NBA player has assaulted another player during or before a game. This week, Pistons' forward Isaiah Stewart punched Suns' forward Drew Eubanks during a confrontation before the teams' matchup Wednesday night. Earlier this season, Draymond Green struck Jusuf Nurkic in the face. Green stomped on the chest of Kings' guard Domantas Sabonis during a game last April. In each, the NBA saw a black player assault a white player. Perhaps that's why the trend isn't receiving much attention. White players account for just 16.8 percent of the NBA, yet accounted for 100 percent...

    The College Fix ^ | 02/16/2024 | Jennifer Kabbany
    A bill making its way through the California legislature could, if approved, pave the way for free college tuition for black students and other perceived marginalized communities.ACA-7 passed the state Assembly in September and sits before the Democrat-controlled Senate. If approved there, it would be put before voters this November.The bill would effectively allow the governor to circumvent the state’s longstanding ban on racial preferences first passed by a majority of voters in 1996 with Proposition 209 and reaffirmed in a 2020 referendum.The measure would allow the governor to use the state’s coffers to fund research-based or culturally specific programs...
  • Diversity Training Increases Prejudice And "Activates Bigotry" Among Participants, New Study Says

    Epoch Times ^ | 02/13/2024 | Lee Harding
    Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) training is divisive and counter-productive and can even serve to increase prejudice among participants, a new study by a Canadian professor says.David Haskell released his study for the Aristotle Foundation for Public Policy on Feb. 12. The social scientist and associate professor at Wilfrid Laurier University says DEI training does more harm than good and calls his findings a “reality check.”“A growing number of high-profile cases suggest that diversity workshops and their supporting materials regularly promote questionable claims—particularly about the overarching, malicious character of the majority population. Similarly, hostility toward those who challenge DEI claims...

    A professor who sued UCLA after he was suspended in the wake of the George Floyd-Black Lives Matter riots after refusing a request to grade black students leniently will soon get his day in court. UCLA accounting lecturer Gordon Klein is demanding well over $19 million in damages in a lawsuit scheduled to go to trial March 4 in a Santa Monica courthouse. The two sides have engaged in legal wrangling since September 2021, when Klein first filed suit — including a failed attempt by UCLA’s lawyers to get the case tossed by summary judgment. The causes of action to...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Republican and Democratic parties have distinct strengths within different subgroups of the U.S. population. However, Democrats have lost ground among some of their traditionally stronger support groups while gaining ground with others. This is based on analysis of Americans’ party preferences, which includes those who identify as Democratic or Republican and those who are independent but lean toward either party. Of particular note, * The Democratic Party's wide lead over Republicans in Black Americans’ party preferences has shrunk by nearly 20 points over the past three years. * Democrats' leads among Hispanic adults and adults aged...

    The Hallmark Channel has race-swapped nearly the entire cast for their upcoming adaptation of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. Sense and Sensibility was the first novel written by Jane Austen and is set in the late 18th century. It follows two sisters Marianne and Elinor who find themselves in tough circumstances after the death of their father, who leaves his fortune to his eldest son from his first marriage. The two sisters, their mother, and their third sister leave their home and move in with a cousin.
  • Should We Teach to Empower Students or to Keep Them as “Sacred Victims”? A black professor argues that “anti-racist” instruction is counterproductive.

    Among the many destructive ideas that “progressive” thinking has unleashed on education in America is that it’s unfair to hold students from “underrepresented groups” to the same standards as others. Schools and colleges should “help” minority students succeed by lowering expectations for them—somehow atoning for wrongs done to their ancestors in the distant past. That is how Claudine Gay wound up as president of Harvard. The notion that academic standards should be lower for minority students has swept through our educational institutions, but there are some dissenters who argue that this doesn’t help but hurts. One of them is Professor...
  • Calls for reparations for black Americans fall apart due to 'intense opposition by the American people': Squad member Cori Bush, who championed payouts faces DOJ probe and taskforces become 'a national embarrassment'

    Reparations advocates had the wind in their sails last year. Cities across the US set up teams to hash out plans to compensate black people for the legacy of slavery, taking their cue from a successful pilot in Evanston, Illinois. The landscape in 2024 is very different. Squad member Cori Bush, the Missouri Democrat who has championed payouts, is under investigation for campaign spending violations. Her bid for a $14 trillion federal compensation package is dead in the water. The reparations task force in Detroit — a hub for African-American culture — has descended into a 'shambles' of quitting and...

    Former Trump official Mike Gill, who was shot by a carjacker Monday in Washington D.C., died from his wounds on Saturday*** “It is with profound sadness that I wish to inform the community of the passing of my husband, Mike Gill,” his wife, Kristina Gill,*** “His sudden departure has left a void in our lives that can never be filled.” Gill had served as Trump’s chief operating officer of the Commodity Futures Trading. Gill was picking his wife up from work when 28-year-old Artell Cunningham got inside his parked car outside of an office building on K street and shot...

    SNIP According to its website, Gem’s software allows recruiters to track “gender and race/ethnicity throughout the entire hiring funnel.” Essentially, it appears to include a comprehensive race and gender tracking system designed to help companies fill race- and gender-based quotas with precision. For example, in a 2021 diversity webinar posted on YouTube, a Gem employee seemed to explain how the software could show how many candidates a company would need to reach out to if it had three engineering positions open, but didn’t want to hire men for them (in her words: “wanted to give women a chance”).

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban made headlines early this month when he sought to school X chief Elon Musk on the wonders of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) policies and insisted that it is not really race-based hiring. But the video of the woman he put in place to guide his DEI policies shows she did, indeed, use DEI policies to hire strictly based on race and gender to the exclusion of white males. Cuban engaged with Musk in a series of X posts on Jan. 4, where he defended DEI hiring policies and said there is “zero” evidence that...

In a panel on ABC News’s “This Week,” Brazile highlighted the gender discrepancy amid increased calls for Haley to step aside, and she noted Haley is not that far behind for total delegates.

    Five finalists are selected by a hiring committee for a tenure-track faculty position at a reputable regional university. The candidates are ranked based on skills and competencies. The top applicant is white. The second place is held by an Asian American and the third by an African American. Who do you think should get the job? In a merit-based system, the top-ranked individual should be hired. His or her race must not be factored in. Our laws, from the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to federal and state civil-rights statutes, dictate race neutrality. But in our present-day reality, wherein...

As Breitbart News noted in its election night livewire, “The fact that the AP called it right when the final polls closed is disastrous for Haley”:

    As the work-from-home trend took off during the COVID-19 pandemic, the term “quiet quitting” entered the contemporary lexicon. According to the Harvard Business Review, “Quiet quitters continue to fulfill their primary responsibilities, but they’re less willing to engage in activities known as citizenship behaviors: no more staying late, showing up early, or attending non-mandatory meetings.” Simply put, having perceived their jobs to not have value and meaning, they do no more than absolutely necessary. There is debate among scholars as to the extent of the quiet quitting phenomenon, but there is increasing evidence that white Americans are increasingly quiet quitting...
