  • The majority of Harvard’s incoming class is nonwhite

    For the first time in Harvard University’s history, the majority of students accepted into the incoming freshman class are not white, a milestone for an institution that prides itself on educating future presidents, CEOs, and world leaders. But Harvard’s push to broaden the diversity of its student ranks comes as the Trump administration intensifies its focus on affirmative action policies and suggests it will investigate how colleges shape the racial makeup of their campuses. The US Justice Department is preparing to redirect resources from its civil rights division toward investigating and suing universities over affirmative action admissions policies deemed to...

    The Trump administration is preparing to redirect resources of the Justice Department’s civil rights division toward investigating and suing universities over affirmative action admissions policies deemed to discriminate against white applicants, according to a document obtained by The New York Times. The document, an internal announcement to the civil rights division, seeks current lawyers interested in working for a new project on “investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions.” The announcement suggests that the project will be run out of the division’s front office, where the Trump administration’s political appointees work, rather than...

    The NAACP is planning to move forward with a travel advisory warning people to steer clear of Missouri because of the state's alleged discrimination issues. Delegates for the NAACP voted on the advisory last week that cautions black people, the gay community and disabled people from visiting the state, reports the News-Leader.

    A federal judge has dismissed a class-action racial discrimination lawsuit filed by current and former black employees of Time Warner, owner of Turner networks including CNN, TNT and TBS. U.S. District Court Judge William Duffey of the Northern District of Georgia said in Tuesday’s order that the employees didn’t meet legal standards to prove “a pattern and practice of intentional race discrimination.” The lawsuit filed in December claimed a pattern of discrimination against black employees, particularly men, in evaluations, pay and promotions. …

    RUSH: We just told you about Jody Allard, the feminist writer who compares her own sons to rapists. They’re teenagers. She says they’re not safe because they have penises, and because they have penises they are prone to rape women, and she writes about them this way. And they’ve gotten old enough now that they’re able to find out that she’s writing this way about them, and they don’t like their mother. And she thinks that’s their problem.

  • U.S. Labor Department Facilitating Age Discrimination

    07/13/2017 2:16:04 PM PDT · by davikkm
    Americans age 40 and older have a new reason to fear age discrimination: the United States Department of Labor. The Work Opportunity Tax Credit is at the root of the problem. This program is administered by the Labor Department and gives businesses tax breaks for hiring people from certain target groups.1 Among those groups are people enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which provides food stamps.2 At first glance, that would seem to make sense. Helping the poor is the right thing to do. However, the Labor Department states on its website that SNAP recipients range in age...

    A recent “black power” student takeover at Evergreen State College in May shocked and appalled many Americans. Students were seen shouting “BLACK POWER!” inches away from a disoriented-looking white professor’s face while, ironically, later on claiming “whiteness is the most violent system to ever breathe!” The Gateway Pundit learned that the President of Evergreen State College in Washington State, George S. Bridges, stated that he is “grateful” for the “passion and courage” of the “black power” students who can be seen in footage harassing white professors and attempting to shut down classes. In the footage, the students were shouting expletives...

    According to Breanna Edwards of The Root.com, CNN is facing a growing racial discrimination lawsuit that according to The Hollywood Reporter “may grow exponentially.” CNN’s ongoing lawsuit is explained in an April 5, 2017 piece titled “CNN Facing Racial-Discrimination Lawsuit Claiming African Americans Receive Lower Performance Ratings in Evaluations”: Another major news network is facing allegations in a racial-discrimination lawsuit, stemming from a proposed class action in Georgia federal court. In the lawsuit, plaintiffs claim that at CNN and other Time Warner units, African Americans receive lower performance ratings in evaluations, that there are huge discrepancies in pay between employees...

    ITV has been accused of “racism” by furious social media users after advertising an internship for its flagship Peston on Sunday political programme which excludes certain candidates on the basis of race. Presenter Robert Peston, a BBC hire who became ITV’s political editor, tweeted out a message on June 8th telling followers that he and his team were “looking for an intern keen to learn about production and excited by politics”. Social media users soon realised that Creative Access, the company tasked with placing the intern, was excluding candidates based on race, with the post “only open to UK nationals...

    While there are many threats to religious liberty, few are more consequential over the long term than the state’s ever-expanding role in private life. If the government is able to vacuum up tax dollars, create programs large and small for public benefit, and then exclude religious individuals or institutions from those programs, it has functionally created two tiers of citizenship. Secular individuals and institutions enjoy full access to the government they fund, while religious individuals and institutions find themselves funding a government that overtly discriminates against them. That’s the issue the Supreme Court addressed today in Trinity Lutheran Church...

    Alyssa Milano excluded Sen. Ted Cruz from a virtual “group hug.” On Tuesday, the politically active actress tweeted, “Group hug. Get in” to her more than 3 million followers after Jon Ossoff lost the special Congressional election in Georgia to his Republican challenger Karen Handel. Then on Thursday, as senate Republicans introduced their new healthcare bill, with which Cruz has taken some issue, he retweeted Milano with the message, “We all need a hug,” along with a winking emoji. But the “Charmed” star wasn’t having it. Milano replied to the Texas senator, “Not you, @tedcruz. You’re not invited,” also with...

    The Knesset on Wednesday approved in a preliminary hearing MK Bezalel Smotrich's (Jewish Home) proposal to mandate that suits against Israeli authorities in Judea and Samaria be dealt with like the same type of suits elsewhere in Israel: in regional courts and not in the Supreme Court. This proposal would significantly lessen the Supreme Court's involvement in property and construction cases in Judea and Samaria, allowing the problems to be dealt with in a more legal and less political fashion. It would also significantly lessen the load on the Supreme Court, shortening the wait time for other cases. In his...

    Students and Jewish community members filed a lawsuit Monday against San Francisco State University and Cal State’s board of trustees, alleging that the San Francisco campus of the country’s largest public university system has long cultivated a hostile environment in which Jewish students are “often afraid to wear Stars of David or yarmulkes on campus, and regularly text their friends to describe potential safety issues.”

    The decision by Salem State trustees to choose a white male former state representative as the new president of the university has disappointed some faculty and ignited a simmering debate about the lack of gender and racial diversity in the top ranks of public higher education. To critics, the selection of John D. Keenan fit a troubling pattern of trustees at Massachusetts public colleges and universities turning to well-known local politicians to serve as presidents, rather than outside candidates with more experience in education.

"And when we say 'Women (and People Who Identify As Women) Only,' we mean it. Everyone working at this screening — venue staff, projectionist, and culinary team — will be female." Some people did not respond well to the announcement and perceived exclusion. "Alamo Drafthouse, will there be a male only screening for Thor: Ragnarok...

I am referring to Ahmed Mohamed, the teenaged poster boy for “Islamophobia” whom the Council on American-Islamic Relations relentlessly pimped as a victim. In fact, Mohamed is a bomb hoaxer called Clock Boy by some.

    A federal judge in Texas has dismissed a discrimination lawsuit brought by Ahmed Mohamed, the 9th grader who was arrested in 2015 for bringing a clock to school. U.S. District Judge Sam Lindsay on Thursday ruled the boy failed to prove discrimination, according to CBS News. The judge gave the teen’s legal team until June 1 to file an amended complaint against Irving Independent School District, high school principal Daniel Cummings and the city of Irving. Ahmed gained national attention in 2015, when he brought an alarm clock he had built to his Dallas-area high school. Rather than applaud the...

    President Donald Trump's choice for Army secretary announced Friday that he is withdrawing his name from consideration. "It is with deep regret today I am withdrawing my nomination to be the Secretary of the Army," Mark Green said in a statement. On Tuesday, CNN reported that the nomination was in serious jeopardy, and he could be withdrawing as soon as this week, three sources familiar with the matter told CNN. The decision by Green, Trump's second pick for the post, came after his nomination ran into trouble following a backlash after past controversial statements on LGBT issues, Islam and evolution...
