    What would you think if your 8-year-old came home and told you that “white privilege is something that white people have, meaning they have an advantage in a lot of things and they can get a job more easily”? You would have heard that at the recent 15th annual White Privilege Conference in Madison, Wisconsin, attended by 2,500 public-school teachers, administrators and students from across the nation (http://tinyurl.com/lkoqj9b). The average parent has no idea of the devious indoctrination going on in classrooms in many public schools. What follows are some of the lessons of the conference. In one of the...

    Would it surprise you to learn that educators were recently taught at thefifteenth annual White Privilege Conference in Madison, Wisconsin, that racism is central to America; the longer you are in the Tea Party, the more racist you become; and this country was built on white principles for white people? -snip The trio said the speakers repeatedly emphasized how important it is to start teaching students about white privilege when they are as young as four and five years old, and that they also conflated racism was conflated with capitalism. Olson said one of the main messages was, in order...

    When the Provisional Irish Republican Army agreed to end its paramilitary insurgency (and/or terrorist campaign) against British rule in Northern Ireland with the Good Friday accords of 1998, it was unambiguously a good thing for the people of Ireland and their British next-door neighbors. Its not like everything suddenly became hunky-dory in the long and troubled historical relationship between those islands, but the peace has largely held splinter groups and isolated sectarian violence aside and an era of relative normalcy and increasing prosperity has followed. Given the global context of the 21st century, an intractable religious-cum-nationalist dispute between...

    Much has been said lately about something called white privilege. I had never actually seen this creature, so I decided to do a little bit of investigating. What does it look like? How will I know if I cross its path? I have asked several people. The problem then is the responses: no two are alike. It seems this white privilege thing is quite controversial, and while no two people who believe in this thing can agree on specifics, they all agree it exists. Apparently its not a physical creature at all but a societal truth. Its kind of like...

    Political Correctness: A healthy, white, heterosexual, Christian man has unfair advantages in the U.S. military over other soldiers, says a training manual approved by the Pentagon, warning in great detail about a so-called White Male Club. Those who thought the U.S. military was already the ultimate level playing field, a place where skill and fighting ability were what mattered, not gender, race or religious belief, were sadly mistaken, at least according to a 600-plus-page manual used by the military to train its Equal Opportunity officers. According to the manual, put together by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI), and...

Being white is an unearned privilege; I did absolutely nothing to get the white skin I have. Yet my white skin gives me power and credibility. I am not just a member of the club; I am a member of THE club. And the best part is that I don't have to show a membership card; the color of my skin is my membership card,...

EAGnews decided to join them, to get a first-hand look at what the program, sponsored by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, is all about. State officials contend the CREATE program is nothing more than an effort to help teachers better understand and serve minority students. But as EAGnews previously reported, CREATE appears to have a much more broad and progressive agenda than simply working to close the achievement gap between students of color and their white counterparts.

The New York Post reported that Zucker is looking at Erin Burnett to revive the cablers moribund morning ratings and quotes a CNN source who said Zucker will team Burnett up with a guy, and theyll go after the audience watching Today and Good Morning America."

One day it got back to me that a black fellow at the courts, whose name I forget, said, "Selwyn doesn't like black people." This raised my eyebrows. You see, I had never really thought about the man one way or the other. And what occupied my mind were forehands, backhands, topspin, and volleys, not race.

The New Black Panther Party has offered a reward for the capture of Martins shooter George Zimmerman, and cited street people law during the interview Monday night as justification for charging murder against George Zimmerman while calling for a citizens arrest. When pressed by Cooper on the legality, he responded that he could make a citizens arrest of Zimmerman, who has not yet been charged for...

    In 1961 a play titled "The Blacks : A Clown Show" by the French petty criminal and homosexual prostitute Jean Genet, was the avant garde sensation of New York. At the St. Marks Playhouse it starred a cast of Black actors, then young but now well-known to us all -- people like James Earl Jones, Louis Gossett, Cecily Tyson, Godfrey Cambridge, Maya Angelou, and Roscoe Lee Brown. As I recall --though the cast most certainly changed over time -- it remained one of the longest running off-Broadway plays of that decade. In its review of the play, the NYT's Taubman...

    When asked by CNN's Soledad O'Brien about the definition of critical race theory (CRT), Emory Law Professor Dorothy Brown offered the following: "Critical race theory seeks to explain judicial decisions by asking the question, What does race have to do with it?" CRT simply "looks at race in America," professor Brown stated. That's a bit like saying that a religious zealot just "looks at" theology. Critical race theorists do not merely look at racial questions. Like zealots, they give answers; they preach a doctrine, seek converts, and condemn nonbelievers. Indeed, CRT is the primary source of Orwellian "hate speech" proposals....

In her conversation with Pollak she at first appeared not to know what Critical Race Theory actually was while at the same time she was sure Pollak was wrong. From somewhere she came up with a definition that happened to be curiously similar to the one found in Wikipedia. Soon after the Wikipedia page for CRT was changed repeatedly and...

    The story of Cassandra Butts is an important example of how Critical Race Theory and its adherents continue to shape President Barack Obama's worldview and his administration. At Harvard Law School from 1988-1991, Butts was one of the student advocates of Professor Derrick Bells strike for "faculty diversity." She was also a fast friend of Obamas, whose career she has helped to promote from the halls of the Harvard Law Review to the White House. Her role in the Obama White House is not a mystery. Rep. Harold Ford Jr. noted on MSNBC on January 22, 2009--shortly after Obama's inauguration--that...

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has taken the unusual step of issuing a permit allowing an American Indian tribe in Wyoming to kill two bald eagles for religious purposes. The agency's decision comes after the Northern Arapaho Tribe filed a federal lawsuit last year contending the refusal to issue such permits violates tribal members' religious freedom. Although thousands of American Indians apply for eagle feathers and carcasses from a federal repository, permits allowing the killing of bald eagles are exceedingly rare, according to both tribal and legal experts on the matter.

    In November 1985, the Harvard Law Review published an article by Derrick Bell that was a "classic" in the development of Critical Race Theory. The article was edited by then-student Elena Kagan, and was cited by Prof. Charles Ogletree in support of her nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court by President Barack Obama in 2010. The article makes clear that Critical Race Theory sees the U.S. Constitution as a form of "original sin"--a view later embraced by Obama as a state legislator, and reflected in his actions and appointments. The following is an excerpt from the non-fiction portion of the...

It is interesting, for example, to reconsider Attorney General Eric Holders incendiary statement in 2009 that America is a nation of cowards with a view towards the influence of Bells ideas on Obama's cohort of left-wing legal minds. In his speech, Holder expressed a brazen skepticism of the concept of America as a melting pot, seeing that as a form of self-deception. Despite...

    Derrick Bell, the man whose scholarship inspired Barack Obama, was the Jeremiah Wright of academia. And a Hollywood cult hero. Bell was one of the chief proponents of Critical Race Theory, a radical doctrine that holds that American legal institutionsincluding our civil rights lawsperpetuate white supremacy.

    A Closer Look at the 'Five Stooges' Investigating Ward Churchill by Jim Paine from Dictionary.com: stooge(stj)n. The partner in a comedy team who feeds lines to the other comedian; a straight man. One who allows oneself to be used for another's profit or advantage; a puppet. One would think that with all the public attention on the actions of CU's Standing Committee on Research Misconduct (SCRM) vis vis its treatment of the Ward Churchill investigation, SCRM would approach the task of selecting the final investigating committee members with care, nay, with great fear and trembling. One would think SCRM...
