  • San Francisco supervisors to vote on ‘CAREN Act’ to discourage racially biased 911 calls

    10/20/2020 11:52:11 AM PDT · by C19fan · 17 replies
    LA Times ^ | October 20, 2020 | Staff
    Fed up with white people calling 911 about people of color selling water bottles, barbecuing or otherwise going about their lives, San Francisco supervisors are set to approve new hate-crime legislation giving the targets of those calls the right to sue the caller. The Board of Supervisors is scheduled to vote Tuesday on the Caution Against Racial and Exploitative Non-Emergencies Act, also known as the CAREN proposal in a nod to the widespread meme “Karen,” used to describe a specific type of middle-aged white woman who exhibits behavior that stems from privilege, such as using the police to target people...

    Charles A. Murray ’65 spoke to Harvard affiliates at a Friday webinar about his new book, which criticizes the idea that race and gender are social constructs. Faculty in attendance criticized his work, saying it makes unfounded claims and is rooted in flawed methodology. Government preceptor David D. Kane invited Murray — whose work the Southern Poverty Law Center terms “racist pseudoscience” – to speak about his 2020 book “Human Diversity: The Biology of Gender, Race, and Class” as part of a lecture series entitled “Data Scientists, Data Professionals, Data Dissidents.” Murray said during the talk that many of Harvard’s...
  • Attorney for group of ex-players fires back at Iowa Hawkeyes

    The attorney representing eight Black former Iowa football players who allege racial discrimination during their time with the Hawkeyes said Monday night that the university's rejection of their demands, which included a payment of $20 million, is not the end of the matter. Civil rights attorney Damario Solomon-Simmons of Tulsa, Oklahoma, had stated the players' demands in a 21-page letter to university officials dated Oct. 5. In addition to $20 million, the players called for the firings of head football coach Kirk Ferentz, offensive line coach Brian Ferentz and athletic director Gary Barta.

    I was recently contacted pursuant to my perspective on the damnable heterodoxy known as Critical Race Theory (CRT). For whatever reason(s) the person seeking my input failed to reconnect with me to hear my thoughts regarding same. That said, I've been planning to share my feelings regarding CRT – and there's no time like the present. Let me first say that I am an unapologetic, uncompromising, in your face when the situation calls for it, born-again Christian, ordained minister who has been called to a ministry that has kept me on the front lines of the political theater. I stand...

    Critical race theory likely advances the cause of white nationalism, and the president is right to oppose it President Donald Trump announced on Sept. 5 an end to critical race theory training in federal agencies. As explained by Russ Vought, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, the policy change targets “training or propaganda” pertaining to “white privilege” and efforts to advance the claim that “the United States is an inherently racist or evil country or … that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil.” On Sept. 22, the president extended this ban to companies doing...

    A scam artist got away with $122 from a Fort Mill ice cream shop after threatening to lie about them to the media, according to a police report. The manager of Cold Stone Creamery in Kingsley Town Center said a black female came into the shop on Oct. 1 while a young employee was working. “(She) stated that she had an issue with the way she was treated during a previous visit to the business,” a police report says. “She wanted a full refund for the items that she purchased, totally $122.72.” The suspect would not let the employee contact...

    When asked Tuesday about the video of George Floyd’s death, Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett said it is “obvious” racism persists in the U.S., but the issue of how the country should address it is up to policymakers, not judges. The line of questioning came from U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, a Democrat, during the second day of Judge Barrett’s confirmation hearings. Barrett, who has two adopted children from Haiti, said the Floyd video was “very, very personal for my family.” She said the events of this last summer was particularly difficult for her 17-year-old daughter, Vivian. “My...
  • A Feel-Good Report Card Won’t Help Children The National Assessment of Educational Progress considers a proposal to relativize reading tests.

    City Journal ^ | October 13, 2020 | David Steiner and Mark Bauerlein
    While cultural debates have roiled primary and secondary education, the National Assessment of Educational Progress has been largely free of ideological conflict. Known as the “nation’s report card,” NAEP tests students in math and reading and, less often, in civics, U.S. history, and science. These tests are not high-stakes student assessments because the NAEP does not calculate individual scores; rather, it measures school-system performance by state and large districts, and, as such, it is the nation’s best indicator of trends in student learning. The NAEP’s current framework defines reading comprehension as “a dynamic cognitive process,” involving “Understanding written text”; “Developing...

    Based on the recommendations of consultants they paid nearly half a million taxpayer dollars, the Loudon County school board recently approved an Equity Plan steeped in critical race rhetoric. Ever since the unfortunate death of George Floyd, corporate media, virtue-signaling neighborhood leftists, and politicians have been talking about “systemic racism” in America, even though there was and still is no evidence that Floyd’s death was motivated by race.This is emblematic of the growing concern about “critical race theory,” in which everything is viewed through the lens of race because, the theory claims, “racism is present in every aspect of life,...

    President Trump, on Charlottesville: ‘I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and white nationalists because they should be condemned totally.’ If a dollar were deposited in the U.S. Treasury for every time President Trump was misquoted about the 2017 Charlottesville, N.C. standoff between neo-Nazis and the mostly Antifa crowd, we could make significant inroads in paying off our national debt.In 2020, Democrats are still lying about the president’s actual statements and pushing the propaganda that he said “there were fine people on both sides,” referring to neo-Nazis. Democrat vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris made the false claim again in her debate...

    Israeli actress Gal Gadot has been slammed on social media after she was cast to play Cleopatra in the upcoming historical epic about the iconic Egyptian queen. The 35-year-old on Sunday confirmed she will play the titular role in a new movie after Paramount Pictures won the rights to the film in a bidding war between Universal, Warner Bros., Apple and Netflix. The casting however, immediately drew outrage from confused social media users who wrongly assumed Cleopatra was black and North African.

    If you listen to the left, you would think that conservative Americans are primarily White racists who want to preserve a White America. These White nationalists, frightened by foreign immigration and terrified by the rising prominence of Black Americans, have aligned themselves with Donald Trump in order to “make America White again.” In reality, while this may speak for a tiny minority of conservatives, it does not speak for the masses. It is a destructive ideology we resist. Race is not the issue. Our universities have shifted dramatically to the left, to the point that, in 2016, a Harvard student...
  • (White) Girl beaten unconscious in food court of Coastland Center mall in Naples (by black male)

    A man was arrested at the Coastland Center mall Tuesday after a witness said he beat a girl unconscious for spurning his advances. An officer from the Naples Police Department responded to a call at around 4 p.m. regarding a fight in the food court. Bruce Gordon, 37, told the officer that he had struck the victim, who police say is a juvenile, in self-defense after she had accosted him unprovoked. But a witness reported that Gordon had responded violently after the victim had refused Gordon’s flirtation with her in the Panda Express line. The witness said Gordon swore at...

    America is heading towards the abyss – whatever the outcome of the coming election. If Trump wins, we have a fighting chance to save our democracy as we know it. If he loses, the racial totalitarians will be in power and our fight will be a rearguard action based on the hope that when the American people get a full dose of governance by the party of hate they will gather their forces to defeat them. Michelle Obama – to pick one among a myriad of examples to hand – has declared the coming election to be an election about...

    Recently, the State of Virginia has begun pushing forth new legislation which would prohibit officers from making what is termed as a pretextual stop. Pretextual stops are when an officer uses a mundane traffic violation to stop a vehicle because he or she believes there may be criminal activity afoot. For instance, an officer may see a tag light out on a vehicle driven by a little old lady coming out of Walmart. That officer probably is not concerned that the woman driving is a criminal. However, spotting the tag light out on a vehicle that is coming out of...

    Retired Los Angeles police sergeant Cheryl Dorsey on Wednesday suggested Kentucky attorney general Daniel Cameron is a foe of African Americans because prosecutors aren't bringing murder charges for the death of Breonna Taylor. "Let me say this as a black woman, [Cameron] does not speak for black folks," Dorsey said during an appearance on MSNBC. "He's skin folk but he is not kinfolk. And so just like he thinks they can’t speak for Kentucky because he’s up there with a black face, he does not speak for all of us." Dorsey criticized Cameron after a Kentucky grand jury decided no...

The helicopter gunshop Mi-28NM is being fitted with drones which Russia will be able to fire from missile launch tubes, an insider told state news agency Tass.

    Agitators for critical race theory have fanned out of academia into mind-hacking workaday Americans, trying to convince them the nation is unredeemably evil. They doggedly attempted to do this to federal employees as well as all big corporations.Christopher Rufo, a research fellow with the Discovery Institute, has described how trainers for critical race theory (CRT) in the federal government are defying President Trump’s executive order to cancel their race-baiting training. In the State Department, for example, they are pushing a “’21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge,’ in which staff are asked to recite a racial equity ‘pledge,’ ‘select a...
