    Royce Mann, an eighth grader from Atlanta, Ga., took the Internet by surprise with his poem called, “white boy privilege” that he wrote and recited at his school’s poetry slam contest in May. In the video recently posted by his mother on YouTube, 14-year-old Mann expresses his thoughts on race, gender and equality issues. He began the poem by saying how grateful he was to have been born a white male and said that he loved his “white boy privilege.” “Dear women, I’m sorry, dear black people, I’m sorry… Dear everyone who isn’t a middle or upper class white boy,...

    Is the American population at large capable of independent thought anymore? With politics going the way they are today, it’s a question worth asking. As the 2016 election season progresses, it becomes more and more apparent on a daily basis that a vast majority of Americans on both the left and the right require their news to be ruminated, masticated, hashed and rehashed prior to consumption. Instead of using their brains to consume and synthesize facts concerning their country’s politics and politicians, Americans – more often than not – have consigned themselves to a state of cerebral laziness. For such...
  • Ten Reasons Why Glenn Beck Is Wrong About Facebook’s Bias Against Conservatives

    Glenn Beck has been shamelessly man-crushing on Mark Zuckerberg after the meeting he and 16 other conservatives had with the billionaire. The radio talker has been quick to assure conservatives that Zuckerberg is “sincere” and can be “trusted” despite reports from several Facebook whistleblowers that the social media giant actively suppresses conservative news stories and boosts leftwing causes like Black Lives Matter in their “trending” news section. If Beck read Breitbart, he would have ample proof of why Zuckerberg is anything but an impartial player when it comes to politics. Here are ten reasons why Facebook shouldn’t be given the...

    If you've never come close to murdering members of your own family over a friendly game of Monopoly, you're probably doing it wrong. We don't think we've ever played a game where someone didn't have a hidden stash of cash, tried to swipe a C-Note while no-one is looking or bargained for their lives, prolonging the agony for way longer than necessary. Now a new version of the game is seeking to settle those dangerously vociferous arguments once and for all by doing away with paper money altogether and bringing the game into a digital age. The Monopoly Ultimate Banking...

    Mainstream outlets have used polar bears to show the alleged dangers of climate change, but now this left-wing mascot is making its way to the big screen. Norm of the North will bring environmentalist propaganda back to theaters with its story of a talking polar bear who rescues his Arctic home from a housing development project "for the one percent." The film's writers pit eco-friendly protagonists against Mr. Greene: a greedy CEO who calls ordinary people "peasants," says things like "wake up and smell the profits" and "it doesn't matter if I'm corrupt," and hides a caged a polar bear...

    Following his executive actions this week, President Obama will participate in what CNN is calling a "town hall" style discussion about gun control at George Mason University tomorrow night. The one hour show will be hosted by CNN anchor Anderson Cooper and airs live at 8 p.m eastern. But according to a memo sent to faculty and students by GMU Communications and Marketing Vice President Renell Wynn earlier this week, participation in the town hall is by invite only. There are no tickets available to people who are not specifically invited to the event. "This is an invitation-only event. No...

    A Virginia school district is defending a classroom assignment that required students to practice calligraphy by writing the Muslim statement of faith, "There is no god but Allah. Muhammad is the messenger of Allah." Female students at Riverheads High School in Staunton, Virginia, were also invited to wear Muslim clothing -- a story first reported by The Schilling Show. "Neither these lessons, nor any other lesson in the world geography course, are an attempt at indoctrination to Islam or any other religion, or a request for students to renounce their own faith or profess any belief," the district said in...

     All that's necessary to assure our compliance is shaming us into silence.  Our best hope for substantial political change in the past generation was Sarah Palin. When she self-imploded during her Iowa Freedom Summit address last January, what we saw was, not just a personal failure of nerve, but the sure-thing, efficient result, the calculated application of ridicule as one of the key techniques of thought reform. The more one examines this field of study, the more pessimistic one becomes about the prospect for any meaningful resurgence of American democratic republicanism. When Sarah jumped the shark, she was showing understandable...

    Alec Dent, a student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, broke the story in The College Fix [1]: An English class offered at UNC Chapel Hill this fall called “Literature of 9/11″ explores the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks from the perspective of radical Islamists and those who view America as an imperialist nation. The course represents virtually everything wrong with American academia today.The reading list consists entirely of writings by Leftists who view the War on Terror as a massive exercise in American racism and imperialism. Most of the other writings are by Muslims who …...

    Case in point is a freshman-level English class taught at several major universities across the country called “The Literature of 9/11” — which focuses almost entirely on writings from the perspective of the Islamic terrorists, rather than the nearly 3,000 Americans who were slaughtered by them. “These readings offer points of view that justify terrorism, paint the United States and its government as wholly evil and immoral and desecrate the memory of the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks,” the UNC College Republicans said in a recent letter to Chancellor Carol Folt.

    “Though additional work always remains, the physical sciences have completed their core task when it comes to climate change,” says Bill McKibben... "What we don’t know is how to stop ourselves from harming the climate, which is why this book and the social sciences are so important.” Edited by environmental sociologists Robert J. Brulle, PhD, a professor in Drexel University’s College of Arts and Sciences, and Riley E. Dunlap, a professor at Oklahoma State University, the book highlights new things by presenting climate change as a completely social phenomenon, implanted in behaviors, institutions and cultural practices. “We need to develop...

    A report from the Centre for National Security in New York paints a surprisingly diverse portrait of the growing number of U.S. residents becoming foreign fighters for ISIL or plotting domestic attacks in its name.But the report, released Thursday, also provides insight on the motivations driving youths in both Canada and the U.S. to engage in terrorist activities, and strategies to deter them, as the number of homegrown extremists in both countries continues to rise.Since March 2014, a total of 56 people have been arrested and charged in U.S. federal court with supporting ISIL, and another three were killed by...

    --SNIP--As the 55 distinguished members of the National Association of Scholars explained this week, the teaching of American history faces “a grave new risk.” So-called “reforms” by the College Board, which holds a virtual monopoly on AP testing across the country, “abandon a rigorous insistence on content” in favor of downplaying “American citizenship and American world leadership in favor of a more global and transnational perspective.” The framework eschews vivid, content-rich history lessons on the Constitution for “such abstractions as ‘identity,’ ‘peopling,’ ‘work, exchange and technology,’ and ‘human geography’ while downplaying essential subjects, such as the sources, meaning and development...

    It may be possible to reduce biases regarding race and gender while a person sleeps, according to a new study published in the journal Science. Prior research has shown that biases can be reduced with a technique called counter-stereotype training. Neuroscientists at Northwestern University wondered whether sleep might bolster the effect. Study participants were shown images “that are opposite to what they might have been exposed to when growing up,” said Ken A. Paller, one of the study’s authors. These included images of women and African-American men. When participants were shown images of women alongside scientific words, and African-American men...

    Saying that children “instinctively” understand the importance of the environment, President Obama said Thursday that climate change should be taught in schools and “weaved” into science and social studies classes. During a Twitter question-and-answer session, the president responded to about a dozen tweets, most about climate change. One tweet asked Mr. Obama how he believes children should be educated on environmental issues such as global warming.
