Group That Listed ‘Pitfalls Of Working With White People’ Received DOJ Grants
Daily Caller ^ | 5/20/14

Posted on 05/22/2014 5:16:34 PM PDT by Altura Ct.

An organization that published a list of 29 “Pitfalls of Working With White People” that was circulated at a diversity conference earlier this year received hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants from the U.S. Department of Justice, the Daily Caller has learned.

Beyond Diversity Resource Center, based in New Jersey, is listed as a partner organization for the White Privilege Conference which was held in Madison, Wisc. in March.

One of the “pitfalls” listed on the Center’s pamphlet, published by the website Progressives Today, is that white people “ask stupid questions”.

The diversity group, which claims that it “works to build a society that honors individuals because of their cultural differences”, wrote on the pamphlet that whites “benefit financially off the backs of people of color.”

White people “are arrogant”, they “say something stupid” and “get too friendly too fast,” the diversity center’s pamphlet claims.

The organization has published several books on diversity and racism including “The Anti-Racist Cookbook” and “The Great White Elephant”. They also lead educational seminars and workshops throughout the country.

And an increasing share of their funding has come from the federal government – mainly the U.S. Department of Justice.

In fiscal year 2011, the center received a $250,000 grant from the Office on Violence Against Women, which falls under the DOJ.

In Aug. 2012, they received a $249,479 grant from the Office for Victims of Crimes to conduct “National field-generated training, technical assistance, and demonstration noncompetitive continuation projects.”

According to the DOJ’s 2012 program plan, Beyond Diversity Resource Center partnered with the school of social work at Rutgers University on a “demonstration project” that involved providers of victim services from across the country.

“The center will implement organizational development strategies with the participating organizations, offer relevant diversity training, and develop organizational protocols in an effort to enhance LGBTQ victim services,” according to the DOJ’s planning document.

And in June 2013, Robin Parker, the group’s executive director, co-hosted an online discussion on “Incorporating LGBTQ Victims’ Needs into Mainstream Victim Services” for the Office for Victims of Crime, another sub-unit of the DOJ.

It is unclear if any of the funding from those programs overlapped. Parker did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller’s request for comment. Likewise, the Department of Justice did not respond to a request for comment.

The Center’s grants have increased substantially over the past several years.

They received nearly $325,000 in government grants between July 2012 and June 2013, according to their 2012 Form 990. In the year ended June 2012, the Center received just over $147,000. In the prior two years, the center received no government grants while receiving smaller grants in the years before that.

The White Privilege Conference, which partnered with the Beyond Diversity group, has been exposed recently for some of the statements made by conference attendees.

“The longer you are in the tea party, the more racist you become,” said one speaker at the conference, whose statements were captured by conservatives outlets who infiltrated the event.

Another conference speaker, a former English teacher, told a seminar that “being a white person who does anti-racist work is like being an alcoholic.” (RELATED: White Privilege Conference Labels Little Kids Racists)

One white student attending the conference thanked conference attendees for helping him identify what he perceived as his own racism. “I feel like I’m going to go home and tell my parents that I’m a racist and I’m not proud of that, but I’m proud that I can say that,” he said.

The attendance costs and some of the planning expenses for the event were paid for out of taxpayer dollars, several watchdog sites have reported. The MacIver Institute, based in Wisconsin, found that at least $20,000 had been spent by the state and the University of Wisconsin education system to help fund the conference.

It’s that pesky redneck God of ours (hey did you know Jesus was a redneck). Gets friendly too fast... yup. Acts like everybody’s life matters...yup. Insists that there is but one standard of right and wrong...yup.

The devil can’t stand it. It’s too unfair.

And look at a lot of these other guffaws. Looks like a list of implied faults of racemongers.

At what point will we be able to obtain a list which accounts for taxpayer funding for leftist organizations?

He’s encouraging division.

When will conservatives realize that he won’t ever make nice, so why keep on trying to make nice with him.

Find a highway and step in front of a tractor trailer doing 80 MPH. You’ll feel better about yourself and your race whore friends will absolve you of all your sins.

Most of the things that seem to irritate them most are things white liberals do. Happily, the only one I’m “guilty” of is number 25, not to say that I am “oppressed” too but to say that very few people of any color had anything handed to them, and anyone who thinks they did is a self-pitying fool.

Why, you would be referring to Yakub, the genius black scientist of the Nation of Islam:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yakub_(Nation_of_Islam)

"Yakub (sometimes spelled Yacub or Yakob) is, according to the Nation of Islam (NOI), a black scientist who lived "6,600 years ago" and was responsible for creating the white race to be a "race of devils". He did this through a form of selective breeding referred to as "grafting", while living on the island of Patmos."

i was thinking the same thing. If the list were called “Pitfalls of Working With White Liberal People” the list would be OK with me.

But if a white person said that they DO see color, and people are NOT all the same, everybody goes into hysterics and the white has to apologize, grovel, and/or go to sensitivity training. Whites just can’t win no matter what they do.

Those that are masters for The Third World are simply creating a mythos to bolster Third World egos all while suppressing the whites. In the long run it will work. Place this medium in the context of the larger media.(Television, Movies, Plays etc. Television, the most potent influential medium, shows blacks in almost every advertisement. Portrayals of respected professions almost always use blacks or females. Movies depict blacks in charge. In the long run this will harm white male children.

However, the youth of white America is currently showing a predilection for a life devoted to eating, drinking, drugging, copulation, bowel movements, snoring and attending Rock Concerts or "The Games." This produces a person incapable of meaningful resistance to any part of the ongoing conquest.

A lot of the problem of working with white people is most of them don’t want to turn our own country into a third world shiite hole like the ones your ancestors come from, still inhabit, and unfortunately still run - and most likely you would run the same way if given a chance.

Frankly, I think most “people of color” respect us more when we don’t try to play this game. I just go about my business and take people on a case-by-case basis. And I don’t even try to pretend I like everyone. I don’t. I try to be polite and respectful to everyone but that’s it till I get to know them.

LOL... I just went to Buzzfeed and took the "Privilege Quiz". I only got 23 out of 100 and scored "underprivileged." Apparently most of what they call White Privilege is just spending your life amongst mostly white people and never knowing poverty.

But I haven't had that life and I'd bet a LOT of white people haven't. I grew up poor and joined the military. Now I work in the inner city. Yes, I've been called "the white girl," yes, I've had people want to touch my hair, yes I've had to be afraid to walk alone places. Yes I rode the bus, for years, yes I've been in debt, no, my parents couldn't help me... that is LIFE for pete's sake.

Small staff for that size of grants, but then professional hatemongers, like many grifters, do tend to pull in the coin, don't they? Let's examine these creatures:

Robin Parker, director. Smile nice for the marks, Robin. Since 1994 - 20 years, really? - Parker has made a living off "bias crime" in the state of New Jersey. Statistics for racial bias crime are available for New Jersey HERE. These appear to be just after Parker's tenure. Note the disparity between black and white victims, roughly 8-10:1 black versus white. There may actually be a few people credulous enough to believe this.

Pamela Smith Chambers, Training Director. She's been at the "fairness" game since 1987. Degrees in English and Counseling. Co-author of the work cited below.

Nancy Mamis-King, Research and Development Director. Masters in Social Work. Been at the game since 1963.

What might you see in one of these workshops if you can read through the tears of shame? Well, there's this:

And this:

Oh, but wait, there's more:

These are the people who are tearing the country apart and profiting handsomely from it, and it is they who are responsible for one of the most disgustingly racist screeds since Martin Bormann was pounding them out on a manual typewriter. Remember these names. You're paying them.

It isn't conservatives that must realize it, it is the dopey RINOs that must see him for what he is. We get it already.

One could easily come up with a list of pitfalls when working with people of color. But of course, that would be considered horrid and hateful.

Funny you should mention DNA. ( ... BTW, this is an atrocious fantasy-classical depiction of the DNA molecule, just as are the depictions shown in the new COSMOS ... )

I note that “It’s in our DNA.” and such expressions have entered the lexicon, usually to describe habitual or acquired characteristics. Consider today’s ( 5/22/14 ) DILBERT for example, with the line “PERHAPS THEY’RE SENSING THAT YOU HAVE TROLL DNA.” ( Cartoon caps in original. ) The next panel continues, “DID YOUR MOM EVER LIVE UNDER A BRIDGE?”

What are we to make of this? The popular discourse has transgressed all bounds of science and logic.
