  • Diversity is a Weakness, Not a Strength

    10/21/2017 5:37:55 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 42 replies ^ | October 21, 2017 | John Hawkins
    "Diversity is a strength” is one of those Orwellian maxims that’s just generally accepted as truth by most Americans despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary.Granted, if you’re talking about a DIVERSITY OF IDEAS, you can certainly come up with some situations where it’s a strength. For example, in the movie World War Z, Israel is saved (at least temporarily) by having a “tenth man” whose job is to forcefully argue for the alternative viewpoint to a situation where everyone agrees. So instead of laughing off the idea that Israel might face a zombie invasion, Israelis realized there was merit...

    RUSH: A couple recent examples of political correctness. I dont know how many of you use Google Maps, but Google Maps just issued an update to the app that they had to withdraw in less than 24 hours. Google Maps included a new feature. And let me describe it for you. Lets say youre in Manhattan and you need to go from point A to point B, and you put those addresses in, and it calculates your route and tells us how long its gonna take you to get there if youre driving or if you take public transit or...

    There are now so many entrances to the rabbit hole that you may trip and fall into one quite by accident. And once you do the rabbit warren is like a maze of drug-induced alternate realities. But thisthis might give even the most reality-challenged social justice warrior pause: Demonic Clown Drag Queen Does Story Time at Michelle Obama Public Library.The fact this diversity event took place at the Long Beach Michelle Obama Library alone qualifies for a Rabbit Hole Report special mention for alternate reality irony. But I sense a shift here, perhaps an indication that the Rabbit Hole brigade...

    t feels strange writing about this topic, some 25 years after I had it completely settled in my mind. But nothing is ever really settled, I suppose. The claim that I had long ago concluded was a basic historical and economic fallacy is back in a big way. The claim is that society needs homogeneity to be orderly and free. It is a core claim of the alt-right and its sympathizers (and, in a different way, of the alt-left). It is what leads them to reject freedom as a path forward and embrace state control of demographics. Its completely wrong....

    Daily Caller ^ | 10/14/17 | Derek Hunter
    Apples Denise Young Smith, the newly minted Vice President of Diversity at the tech giant, has caused outrage in the industry over comments she made in defense of diversity of thought. Silicon Valley has been in an all-out push to bring in more women and minorities, so when Smith said, I focus on everyone. Diversity is the human experience, without focusing specifically on race or gender, liberal publications criticized her.Smith ultimately apologized for the sentiment.Smith, an African-American woman, continued, I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of color or the...

    The United States Military Academy is being infiltrated and attacked by radical leftists, feminists and Islamists who are on a mission to transform West Point into a bastion of anti-American doctrine, feminist theology and Islamo-Marxist operations, just as they transformed the US Army into a leftist freak show in the last two decades. The Long Gray Line is quickly becoming nothing more than an undisciplined, insubordinate mass of brainwashed, entitled social justice warriors more focused on the LGBT agenda and diversity than they are about putting cold steel down range. After a summer of endless Navy misadventures and collisions at...

    City Journal ^ | August 2017 | Heather Mac Donald
    Few academic ideas have been as eagerly absorbed into public discourse in recent years as implicit bias. Embraced by a president, a would-be president, and the nations top law-enforcement official, the implicit-bias conceit has launched a movement to remove the concept of individual agency from the law and spawned a multimillion-dollar consulting industry. The statistical basis on which it rests is now crumbling, but dont expect its influence to wane anytime soon. Implicit bias purports to answer the question: Why do racial disparities persist in household income, job status, and incarceration rates, when explicit racism has, by all measures, greatly...

    Francisco Salinas is the Director of Student Diversity and Inclusion at Boise State University (BSU). He is perhaps the most intellectually constipated college administrator working west of the Mississippi and outside of the State of California. Due to his relative obscurity, his mendacity was well hidden until he decided to lash out at BSU Professor Scott Yenor. I am writing today in Yenors defense.The motivation for Salinas vicious attack on his colleague was that Professor Yenor decided to write an article in which he criticized feminism in general and gender identity politics in particular. In other words, he decided to...

    This week, the league will begin taking applications for the MLB Diversity Fellowship Program, an initiative that will provide people of color and women 18- to 24-month jobs in 20 front offices across the game. Combined with three more spots in a three-year program with the commissioners office, it is MLBs strongest foray yet into widening its talent base by recruiting those who dont typically consider baseball a viable career path. Its not necessarily that baseball needs someone whos black or a woman, Tirado said. Baseball needs the absolute best talent possible to stay competitive and become a global entertainment...

    The Ghanaian migrant accused of raping a German student whilst threatening to kill her boyfriend if he intervened has branded his victim a prostitute in court. Identified only as Eric X. in local media, the failed asylum seeker is accused of raping the 23-year-old victim in a meadow near Bonn, after slashing the camping couples tent with a machete and demanding their valuables. The pair handed over six euros and a portable set of speakers, before hearing their assailant tell the woman, Come out, bitch. I wanna f*** you, in English threatening to kill her 26-year-old boyfriend if he...

    The swelling population of illegal immigrants and their kids is costing American taxpayers $135 billion a year, the highest ever, driven by free medical care, education and a huge law enforcement bill, according to the the most authoritative report on the issue yet. And despite claims from pro-illegal immigration advocates that the aliens pay significant off-setting taxes back to federal, state and local treasuries, the Federation for American Immigration Reform report tallied just $19 billion, making the final hit to taxpayers about $116 billion. State and local governments are getting ravaged by the costs, at over $88 billion. The federal...

    New York is losing its diversity cred. Affluent Starbucks-swilling, kale-grazing white people are taking over the citys multiracial ecosystem. At least thats what the sophisticates tell us. The truth is Gothams population even apart from the famously immigrant-rich Queens County is way more diverse and way less white than it was 25 years ago. According to the Census Bureau, 43 percent of the denizens of the five boroughs were white in 1990. As of 2010, the figure was only 33.3 percent. Over the span of those same two decades, the total population of the Big Apple increased by...

    SIERRA VISTA A Hispanic-owned construction company from Sierra Vista won one of four contracts awarded this week to build prototypes of President Donald Trumps proposed border wall with Mexico, the second round of awards in as many weeks. KWR Construction Inc. was chosen by U.S. Customs and Border Protection to build a demonstration section of wall near San Diego using materials other than concrete. The award comes a week after CBP awarded four contracts for wall prototypes made of concrete, one of which was won by Fisher Industries of Tempe. Construction on all the prototypes should begin this fall...

    Mandy Patinkin isn't an A-list movie star. He's a huge draw on Broadway all the same. It's why the minds behind Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812 cast him to boost lagging ticket sales. Not so fast. The veteran performer wasn't the right skin color, apparently. The "Homeland" star dropped out after some complained he was replacing an actor of color. The play subsequently closed. A similar event happened this week. Actor Ed Skrein ("The Transformer Refueled," "Deadpool") snared a role in the upcoming "Hellboy" reboot. Skrein celebrated the news on Twitter. Then the Social Justice Warriors pounced....

On one hand, the district is touting higher standards: a high school graduation requirement that all students pass the courses necessary for applying to a four-year state college. On the other hand, the district requires a grade of D only in these classes and the colleges require a C or better to apply. The district also offers an array of credit recovery...

    WOODLAWN The Obama Foundation is asking the four construction teams vying to build the presidential center to set high standards for local and minority hiring. The foundation announced four finalists Thursday morning and also the standards for hiring the foundation is setting for each. Each of the firms has to lay out how it would meet a commitment to awarding half of its subcontracts to diverse suppliers, which expands the normal definition of firms from women and minority-owned firms to also include veteran-, disabled- or LGBTQ-owned firms. As the definition of inclusive hiring is broadened, the foundation is specifying...
