    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis took aim at college and university diversity programs during an event in Bradenton Tuesday. DeSantis, speaking at State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota, announced a proposal to strip funding for all diversity, equity and inclusion, or DEI, programs as well as critical race theory... DeSantis has crusaded against...CRT, defined by Oxford Languages as “a set of ideas holding that racial bias is inherent in many parts of Western society, especially in its legal and social institutions, on the basis of their having been primarily designed for and implemented by white people.” ....DeSantis and other conservatives have long...

    On Friday night, a viral video depicting the extrajudicial police killing of Tyre Nichols, a 29-year-old unarmed Black man from Memphis, prompted helicopters in Philly to hover near my house in West Philly. The reason? Media and police were preparing for potential mass protests following the public outcry. The situation was infuriating. There was so much premeditated presumption of a potential riot, damaged property, and another racial uprising. I began to be triggered by the last time such a viral traumatic video caused an uproar. In 2020, the extrajudicial police killing of George Floyd, another unarmed Black man, led to...

    New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) said Monday on “CNN This Morning” that racism was involved in the death of Tyre Nichols. Host Don Lemon asked, “Much has been made about the officers, all of them being black. You said that diversifying police departments would allow us to have a level of policing we deserve. These five officers are all black. Is there an entrenched police culture of aggression towards black people?” Adams said, “Clearly, we could not ignore the ethnicity of the officers that are involved. That is the pink elephant in the room. And people talked about...

    Left-wing CNN commentator Van Jones authored an opinion piece suggesting that the former police officers charged in the death of 29-year-old Tyre Nichols may have been tainted by racism, even though the officers are black, as was the victim. The five men, who have all been fired from the Memphis Police Department, were charged with second-degree murder, aggravated assault, and more. Video footage of the Jan. 7 incident was released on Friday. Nichols died just days after incident. Jones contended that the black officers could have been influenced by racism. "In short, racial animus can still be a factor, even...

    ROME — Norway’s University of Bergen has launched a study of the role played by white paint in extending white supremacy around the globe. The university has received a $1.2 million government grant for its research project “How Norway Made the World Whiter” (NorWhite) to investigate “how white paint has contributed to white supremacy around the world.” The project studies the Norwegian innovation of the white pigment titanium dioxide to show “how Norway has played a globally leading role in establishing white as a superior color.”

    BLM activist and hate preacher Talbert W. Swan evidenced his apparent preference for racial division over truth with a recent pair of tweets suggesting that the Virginia boy who shot Abigail Zerner earlier this month would have been treated differently had he not been white. Only, as Twitter user "The Redheaded libertarian" pointed out, the boy was in fact black.Swan, president of the Greater Springfield chapter of the NAACP, wrote on Jan. 14, "A six year old white boy in Virginia packs his mother’s 9mm Taurus pistol in his backpack, goes to school, and intentionally shoots his teacher.

    A 6-year-old who shot his teacher allegedly told another educator he wanted to light her on fire and watch her die, according to a report. Last month, the troubled boy nearly made good on his apparent murderous impulses, shooting first grader teacher Abigail Zwerner at Richneck Elementary School in Newport News., Va., officials have said. Zwerner survived. Zwerner and other Richneck teachers said they had shared their fears about the child’s grave behavior with administrators, only to have their concerns downplayed or ignored, The Washington Post reported. Zwerner had asked for support with the boy, and expressed concerns about his...

    Intellectual Takeout ^ | January 13, 2023 | Richard Moss, M.D.
    Among many tell-tale signs of the tectonic fissures dividing the nation, perhaps the most telling is the call by prominent Democrats and others for reparations. A recent proposal by California governor Gavin Newsom calling for reparation payments of a potential $223,200 per black resident pushes the matter once again to the fore. Reparations refers to a compensatory payment made to the descendants of African slaves brought to America through the Atlantic slave trade. It is unworkable but speaks loudly of the state of our politics and culture.Proponents of reparations argue passionately of the stain of slavery, the long, dark shadow...

    Is white paint racist? Norway's University of Bergen is exploring that question, asking how the aesthetic of white paint helped the nation contribute to white supremacy and helped "[make] the world whiter." "Whiteness is not only a cultural and societal condition tied to skin color, privileges, and systematic exclusion, but materialize everywhere around us," a rundown of the study read. "Although Norway is not a conventional colonial power, this project will show how the country has played a globally leading role in establishing white as a superior color," it said. "Until now, however, this story has been lesser known to...

    A Minnesota police chief was forced to apologize for posting an image of a 'thin blue line' flag to his department's Facebook page last week, after community members aired complaints labeling the symbol a representation of 'extremist views.' The flag, a black and white rendition of the American flag with a blue stripe running just under the stars, represents men and women in blue standing as a line between law and order. However, more recently, the symbol has been deemed divisive by some, as its meaning has shifted from one of nonpartisan support to one synonymous with the far-right

    Spit it out, Scarborough! Instead of making ugly, thinly veiled accusations against Republicans, have the guts to flatly say what you think! On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough, discussing the performance of Biden spox Karine Jean-Pierre, said: "When you look at the briefings [on Biden's docs situation], you know, there have been a lot of Republicans who have been critical of Karine Jean-Pierre, of course they have been from the beginning. I'll let people draw their own conclusions as to why. It seems pretty obvious to me." Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    It may be MLK Day, but Democrats aren’t here for all that “content of character” stuff. Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee, long in the running for being the vapidest member of Congress (oops, did I just commit a crime?), has introduced legislation that could make political criticism by white people against minorities a federal crime. In what can only be called a convoluted mess, the bill proposes that a white person who “vilifies” any non-white person and has their words end up on social media, accessible by “persons who are predisposed to engaging in any action in furtherance of a white...

    "In 1964, hoping to erase its image as a privileged cloister for white rich families, Wesleyan University contacted 400 Black high school students from around the country to persuade them to apply. The outreach led to the enrollment of what became known as Wesleyan’s “vanguard” class — one Latino and 13 Black students — which helped establish the university’s commitment to diversity. Nearly 60 years later, such recruitment practices face an existential threat."
