    ALBANY — Aides to New York’s first African-American governor wanted a police entourage that looked more like their boss, so they made an unusual request to the State Police: Replace at least 10 white troopers assigned to protect Gov. David A. Paterson with black or Latino officers. The request prompted an extraordinary battle between the Paterson administration and leaders of the State Police shortly after Mr. Paterson, a Democrat, took office in 2008, according to court testimony, e-mails and interviews. Preston L. Felton, at the time the acting superintendent of the State Police and the first African-American to lead the...

    ......................Psychologists Yoel Inbar and Joris Lammers, based at Tilburg University in the Netherlands, surveyed a roughly representative sample of academics and scholars in social psychology and found that “In decisions ranging from paper reviews to hiring, many social and personality psychologists admit that they would discriminate against openly conservative colleagues.” This finding surprised the researchers. The survey questions “were so blatant that I thought we’d get a much lower rate of agreement,” Mr. Inbar said. “Usually you have to be pretty tricky to get people to say they’d discriminate against minorities.” One question, according to the researchers, “asked whether, in...

    Updated at 6:17 p.m. ET] The U.S. Navy's new class of carriers will be the first to go without urinals, a decision made in part to give the service flexibility in accommodating female sailors, the Navy says. The change heralded by the Gerald R. Ford class of carriers – starting with the namesake carrier due in late 2015 – is one of a number of new features meant to improve sailors' quality of life and reduce maintenance costs, Capt. Chris Meyer said Wednesday. Omitting urinals lets the Navy easily switch the designation of any restroom – or head, in naval...

    Come September, a small group of young female Marines will break through one of the last bastions of macho in the U.S. military. They’ll be the first class of female officers to take part in the grueling Infantry Officer Course in Quantico, Va., a test of both physical fitness and mental will that prepares the corps’ future platoon leaders. All of these women will be volunteers, and their training will be closely watched. The new coed class has sparked suggestions that such training could lead to integrating women in the Marine infantry, with some saying they “would make excellent grunts.”

    Well, it looks like the libertarians are mad at me again. Several of my libertarian readers have written to complain that my recent columns have been switching back and forth between making fun of homosexual rights activists and abortion rights activists. That must really make them angry because so many libertarians are homosexuals who need to have abortions. At any rate, I think I have identified the source of the problem and a possible solution. What my libertarian readers fail to understand is that I simply write about the insanity that surrounds me here at the University of North Carolina...

    Fifth Column: The FBI is investigating more than 100 Muslim soldiers and military contractors with the potential to carry out Fort Hood-style attacks. The administration has kept a lid on the growing threat. It's covering up the truth about an alarmingly widespread Islamist penetration of the military. The dangerous fifth column was discovered more than two years after Army Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire on fellow soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, killing 13 and wounding 29. The administration whitewashed the jihadist massacre as a run-of-the-mill case of "workplace violence." Now it's trying to postpone Hasan's trial until after the election...

    Less than a year after the Defense Department's "Don't ask, don't tell" (DADT) policy toward gay and lesbian service members was repealed, the Pentagon says it will hold its first-ever Gay Pride event Tuesday. The event is likely to be a more toned-down version of the Gay Pride parades that take place every June in cities around the world—sans the flags, wigs, beads and boas. (Though some have suggested rainbow camo or berets.) Instead, the Pentagon has planned a somber-sounding panel discussion entitled "The Value of Open Service and Diversity," according to a Defense Department press release. The event will...

    Anyone my age or above will need no reminding of the late, great Michael Wharton, whose Peter Simple column on these pages introduced readers to, among other creations, Dr. Heinz Kiosk. Chief among Dr. Kiosk’s inventions was the “prejudometer”, an anti-racist measurement device. When used on suspected racists, it emitted a reading in “prejudons”, the “internationally-recognized scientific unit of racial prejudice”. When I was a teenager, the antics of Heinz Kiosk made me laugh. I wonder now, though, if those lost in the modern world of corporate correctness might find Wharton’s work eerily prescient. What he didn’t foresee was that...

    If "diversity" is good, why do liberals congregate in lily-white enclaves like Vermont (the whitest state in the Union, according to the Census) and Marin County, California? White liberals hector others incessantly about the need for "diversity," but most have no interest in living in neighborhoods with large numbers of blacks. The ideal society in the liberal mind always seems to be a Scandinavian socialist one (which is to say that liberals strive to make the U.S. more like some of the most uniformly white nations in the world). The liberal enforcers of racial correctness are quick to decry the...

As perhaps the only regular Corner poster who’s also a veteran of an Ivy League law school admissions committee (at Cornell, where I taught for two years), I’m unfortunately completely inadequate for the task of communicating to readers how critically important “diversity” is to admissions and promotions in academe.

    The controversy over Elizabeth Warren's claim to Native American ancestry shows no signs of dying down, and is now threatening to derail her campaign for Republican Scott Brown's Massachusetts Senate seat. Politico reporter Maggie Haberman has now uncovered Pa 1997 piece from the Fordham Law Review that refers to Warren as "the first woman of color" hired by Harvard Law School. The piece cites as its source Harvard Law spokesman Michael Chmura, the same spokesman who bragged about Warren's Native American heritage to the Harvard Crimson in 1996. Warren has so far dismissed the story, which first surfaced when the...

    It’s official: Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren isn’t even 3 percent Cherokee. Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart.com counts coup: The slender thread upon which Elizabeth Warren’s claim that she is 1/32 Cherokee rests—a purported 1894 marriage license application—has been exposed as non-existent. Based on a review of the original marriage records found in the files of the Logan County, Oklahoma Court Clerk’s office in Guthrie, Oklahoma, and the statements of ReJeania Zmek, the Court Clerk of Logan County, Oklahoma, it is likely that the ephemeral 1894 marriage license application never existed. “In modern times we keep marriage license applications,” she said. “The...

    The Republican Party faces a threat to its existence. It’s not an ideological threat, but a demographic and mathematical one. Unless the GOP acts to change the math by broadening its appeal to minorities, it will cease being a major force in American politics. If you have any doubt about this, look at the numbers: In 1960, white Americans made up 94 percent of the electorate. By 2010, the figure had dropped to 75 percent. Among African-Americans, more than 90 percent vote Democratic, and in the 2008 presidential race, 96 percent chose President Obama. For Asian-Americans, a clear majority consistently...

    Every time windows are smashed and clashes erupt with police at Occupy protests in Oakland and San Francisco, one group is in the thick of it: masked, black-clad anarchists known as the Black Bloc. Police say they are pure trouble and point to conflicts at last week's May Day rallies as the most recent example. Most pacifist protesters wish they would go away. Hard-core Occupiers say they like having them around to diversify their movement's tactics. Exactly who makes up the Black Bloc is, by design, a bit of a mystery. Adherents rarely reveal their identity and say they aren't...

    In today’s society, conservatives are constantly lectured about fairness. The stereotype that conservatives don’t like minorities and want them to fail is a bit ridiculous. Now, as most conservatives would argue, we aren’t actually about injustice (who is?); we simply find intrinsic and extrinsic value in merit. Well-rounded, hardworking academics should have a better chance at getting into the top universities. Liberals claim that we need programs like affirmative action to ensure that minority participation isn’t hindered by racial profiling. This is a classic example of the left trying to implement justice and make nothing about race when actually, they...

In August 2007, 58-year-old Maria Hicks honked her horn and flashed her lights when she spotted a group spraying graffiti on a wall in Pico Rivera. That's when Angel Rojas, now 21, shot three to five rounds at Hicks. She was struck once in the head and died three days later.

Since then, California's most selective public colleges and graduate schools have struggled to assemble student bodies that reflect the state's demographic mix.

    On Monday, the day after this year's NCAA March Madness selections, hardcore Vanderbilt University basketball fans plotted a pilgrimage to the desert, to Albuquerque, to exhort their Commodores in their struggle with the Harvard Crimson. Also on Monday, Vanderbilt battered the faithful and cast out the Christians, all in the name of diversity. March 12 marked the day Vanderbilt student groups must begin to submit applications to the university so the Ministry of Diversity, er, I mean, the Dean of Students office, can decree which student organizations are nondiscriminatory enough to haunt Vandy's hallowed halls. Forgive the Orwellian slip, but...

    St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday rooted in Christian values, however secular celebrations are also regularly held to commemorate the day. In fact, for a great many, the religious tones aren’t even a consideration, as alcohol, Shamrock shakes and other fun-filled elements regularly dominate the day’s observations. Somehow, though, the holiday is reportedly still too religious for one Massachusetts elementary school. At the Soule Road School in Wilbraham, St. Patrick‘s Day has been replaced as the name for the school’s celebration surrounding the popular holiday. It’s been replaced with the generic “O’Green Day.” MassLive.com’s Patrick Johnson calls the move “a...
  • White-dominated boards face legal threats over racial makeup

    Compton City Councilwoman Janna Zurita owes her Hispanic last name to a grandmother from Spain, whom she never met. Zurita considers her mother black and said her father “wants to be black” even though he “looks Latino.” Armed with 2010 census data, a network of attorneys is increasingly targeting local governments – from cities and school boards to hospital and community college districts – for not reflecting the demographics of their constituents. While the dispute in Compton, where Zurita’s race was under question, pitted Latino residents against the city’s traditionally black leadership, other cases seek to increase minority representation on...

    Here’s a lesson to the Hackers for the 99%: You’re not anonymous once you get caught. And you’ll always get caught, because, um, the internet was designed by the Department of Defense. And that’s a group that doesn’t want anyone to remain anonymous for long.  In fact, they are so good at tracking people down-with extreme prejudice- that they can make sure a very large bomb fits in a very tiny place. But that’s not your biggest problem. No your biggest problem is that hubris led you to a confrontation with Mexican drug lords who have all sorts of contacts...

    A SHAKEN mum told yesterday how she unwittingly used the voodoo killers of a terrified boy as BABYSITTERS for her toddlers. Dental practice worker Jaide Voller, 32, said as the crazed couple today face life sentences: "My blood runs cold. "I was lucky one of my children wasn't murdered." She was best friends with warped Magalie Bamu, 29 — whose victim was her own 15-year-old brother. Evil Bamu helped her lover torture the lad to death after the pair branded him a "witch". Jaide shuddered as she recalled how the murderess babysat for her "hundreds of times" during the five...

    In this video, not previously available online but licensed by BuzzFeed from a Boston television station, the future president speaks at a 1991 campus protest organized to demand tenure for minority and female law professors. It was perhaps Barack Obama's most intense immersion in the charged campus racial politics of the late 1980s and early 1990s: As President of the Harvard Law Review in the spring of his final year there, 1991, he aligned himself with Professor Derrick Bell's dramatic protest for diversity on the faculty of Harvard Law School. Bell was the first black tenured professor at the school,...
  • US Judge rules Muslims have a right to assault people who offend them

    Unbelievable. Yes, this happened HERE. People who are concerned about the spread of Muslim sharia law into American jurisprudence used to be dismissed as alarmists. That won’t happen again for a while, thanks to a Pennsylvania judge who just dismissed assault charges against a Muslim who was videotaped attacking a man dressed as “Zombie Muhammad” during a Halloween parade. The judge, who is a Muslim, didn’t even care to see the videotape, because the assault was entirely justified under sharia law, so the First Amendment doesn’t apply. In fact, the beaten Zombie Muhammad should just be thankful he wasn’t killed,...

    Perth detectives are hunting up to 20 youths, believed to be of African descent, who were involved in the attack in the city at 11.30pm last night. Two males - aged 16 and 17 - have already been charged, but police have not ruled out further charges being laid. This afternoon, 19-year-old James Claxon told how a night out with mates turned into a nightmare when he was allegedly set upon by the gang, attacked and robbed of his wallet and mobile phone. Mr Claxon said he and four friends had just got off a train and had been walking...
