  • Incoming White House Climate Team Blames ‘Systemic Racism’ for Climate Change

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | 01/18/21 | Collin Anderson
    A pair of top incoming White House environmental aides has blamed "systemic racism" as a driver of climate change in an attempt to justify a government-led economic overhaul. President-elect Joe Biden named progressive policy adviser Maggie Thomas as Office of Domestic Climate Policy chief of staff and climate advocate Cecilia Martinez as "senior director for environmental justice" on Thursday. Both Thomas and Martinez have cited racial inequality as perpetuating climate change, arguing that the Biden administration's environmental policy must be centered on "racial and economic justice." "Unless intentionally interrupted, systemic racism will continue to be a major obstacle to creating...
  • Sephora’s plan to combat racial bias: Fewer security guards, more Black-owned brands and new protocols

    International makeup chain Sephora is implementing sweeping changes in its merchandising, marketing and employee training practices in one of the most public efforts by a major retailer to mitigate the potential for racial profiling and other discriminatory practices at its stores. The initiative announced Wednesday is the culmination of customer and employee surveys, interviews and academic research that have been underway since 2019. But issues around race and inequality took on new urgency following the summer’s Black Lives Matter protests and the police killing of George Floyd in May, executives said. The chain also has faced backlash from Black shoppers,...
  • Joe Biden revokes Donald Trump's order banning 'critical race theory' and other diversity training which ex-president called 'un-American'

    Joe Biden revoked a Trump administration order that had banned federal agencies, contractors and recipients of federal funding from conducting certain diversity training. The order had targeted workplace training that explored systemic racism and privilege, including 'critical race theory,' which former President Donald Trump had deemed 'un-American' and potentially harmful to white workers. The Trump administration had said the order prohibited training that implies anyone is racist or sexist 'by virtue of his or her race, sex, and/or national origin.'

    In response to those who defend The Bell Curve ("Defending The Bell Curve," Opinion, Oct. 24, 1994), please use the following theories and observations to assist you in your search for truth regarding the genetic differences between Blacks and whites. One: Dr. Richard King reveals that at the core of the human brain is the "locus coeruleus" which is a structure that is Black because it contains large amounts of (neuro) melanin which is essential for its operation. Two: Black infants sit, stand, crawl and walk sooner than whites. Three: Carol Barnes notes that human mental processes are controlled by...

    During his opening remarks, Lloyd Austin stated: We also owe our people a working environment free of discrimination, hate and harassment. If confirmed, I will fight hard to stamp out sexual assault, to rid our ranks of racists and extremists, and to create a climate where everyone fit and willing has the opportunity to serve this country with dignity. The job of the Department of Defense is to keep America safe from our enemies. But we can’t do that if some of those enemies lie within our own ranks. Democrats in recent days have sounded the alarm over the prospect...

    Popular entertainer Demi Lovato posted a video on her Instagram page showing comments critical of diversity efforts in the Carroll school district that has generated more than 2 million views. “It is horrifying to see how some of the parents at Carroll ISD in Southlake, TX are literally FIGHTING to uphold white supremacy and are resisting the anti-racism work that is so needed. @southlakearc keep pushing for change, this work is more important than ever,” Lovato wrote. The video is a compilation of comments from parents who attended Carroll school board meetings and who were critical of the school district’s...

    An elementary school in Cupertino, California—a Silicon Valley community with a median home price of $2.3 million—recently forced a class of third-graders to deconstruct their racial identities, then rank themselves according to their “power and privilege.” Based on whistleblower documents and parents familiar with the session, a third-grade teacher at R.I. Meyerholz Elementary School began the lesson on “social identities” during a math class. The teacher asked all students to create an “identity map,” listing their race, class, gender, religion, family structure, and other characteristics. The teacher explained that the students live in a “dominant culture” of “white, middle class,...

    Why can’t Republicans be as smart as this caller, J.C., on Rush Limbaugh’s program on Thursday? Want to solve the problem of reaching the black community, Republicans? Then find this man and put him in charge of the whole darn party.I’m a black American conservative here in West Texas, El Paso. I’m concerned about the messaging—the verbiage from people on the conservative side to get folks who look like me who are straddling the fence to say “Hey, I’m all in.’How is it not systemic racism that if I’m in California and I go to jail and someone who is...

    U.S. President-elect Joe Biden must place environmental justice at the heart of his plans to tackle climate change by tailoring policies to address the global inequalities at the root of the crisis, guests in a Reuters Next panel said on Thursday. The United States now had an opportunity to heed calls from climate justice movements around the world to push for a fundamental transformation of the global economy, said Osprey Orielle Lake, founder and executive director of the California-based Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network International. “The climate crisis really emerged from interlocking systems of capitalism, resource extraction, racism, patriarchy...

    In just a few short days, Joe Biden will address the nation at his inauguration, themed “America United.” This unity message, the Presidential Inaugural Committee declared, “reflects the beginning of a new national journey that restores the soul of America, brings the country together, and creates a path to a brighter future.”The announcement of this bipartisan theme seemed apropos following a week of turbulence and destruction perpetrated by Trump supporters at our nation’s Capitol, the seat of American self-government— upheaval that serious figures on both the left and the right have categorically and correctly condemned. After Biden’s speech on Jan....

    President-elect Joe Biden says his priorities to grow businesses will only be for some Americans, not all Americans. “Our priority will be Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American owned small businesses, women-owned businesses, and finally having equal access to resources needed to reopen and rebuild,” the vice president said. What about white men who own small businesses? Will they be left to fend for themselves? Why is the president-elect judging small business owners by the color of their skin?

    All teachers in Illinois would be required to “be aware of the effects of power and privilege and the need for social advocacy and social action …” under the “Systems of Oppression” standard. Teachers would additionally be required to “implement and integrate the wide spectrum of fluidity in identities in the curriculum.” Further, they would be required to “assess how their biases and perceptions affect their teaching practice and how they access tools to mitigate their own behavior” including on such concepts as “unearned privilege.” These standards ignore what is most important for our students — that is, increasing the...

    On his Substack last week, Matt Yglesias tried to throw woke piranhas a bone by supporting the idea of picking what kids read in school according to the tired identity categories of race, sex, yadda yadda. The discussion resurfaced with a Wall Street Journal article noting teachers — like librarians, publishing houses, corporate news media, and the rest — banning books based on authors’ skin color and sexual preferences, now in the name of “antiracism.”This isn’t new. “Hey ho, hey ho, Western civ has got to go” was the chant Jesse Jackson led at Stanford University back in the 1980s,...
  • America is Not a Racist Country in the 21st Century

    In my view, it’s not all that hard to see that America is not a racist country. Every time there are even mere accusations of racism brought up, most everyone in the nation freaks out. Just look at what happened when Bubba Wallace said he found a noose in his garage. All of the Nascar drivers went out on the track and followed his car in support! And that’s from Nascar, a traditionally Southern sport! If you listen to the fake news media, the South is supposedly full of racists. Does it make sense that they’d go out in support...

    A critically acclaimed young adult author has been “canceled” and dropped by her agent after vociferously defending classic books in a Twitter-fueled rage. Jessica Cluess, the author of the popular “Kingdom of Fire” series (among others) picked a fight with an anti-racist and anti-bias educator Lorena Germán who founded the #DisruptTexts movement which aims to get more works by people of color into schools and to look critically at works by famous white “classic” authors. “Did y’all know that many of the ‘classics’ were written before the 50s? Think of US society before then & the values that shaped this...
  • A Great Quote by Ben Shapiro on Systemic Racism and Why It Does not Exist

    “If you cannot define a problem clearly, you cannot propose a solution. ‘Systemic racism’ or ‘institutional racism’ or ‘implicit racism’ is a miasmatic, deliberately vague charge. Name the racist policy, name the racist person, so we can all fight the racism together.” -Ben Shapiro on Systemic Racism I completely, 100% agree with this quote by Ben Shapiro on systemic racism. Frankly, I think it is something that the right, especially young conservatives that are the future of the conservative movement, needs to keep in mind and accept as the truth about systemic racism. Right now, we’re letting the left set...

    SUMMARY Critical Race Theory (CRT) makes race the prism through which its proponents analyze all aspects of American life—and do so with a degree of persistence that has helped CRT impact all of American life. CRT underpins identity politics, an ongoing effort to reimagine the United States as a nation riven by groups, each with specific claims on victimization. In entertainment, as well as the education and workforce sectors of society, CRT is well-established, driving decision-making according to skin color—not individual value and talent. As Critical Theory ideas become more familiar to the viewing public in everyday life, CRT’s intolerance...
