    Tyler Durden Jun 29, 2016 New research out by the Pew Research Center shows an interesting development in the United States. Using Census Bureau information released with 2014 population estimates, Pew found that the US is becoming ever more diverse, at the local level as well as nationally. In 2014, 364 counties, independent cities and other county-level equivalents did not have non-Hispanic white majorities, the most in modern history, and more than twice the level in 1980.(snip)(snip)

    Abdullah Demirbas risks his life to promote ethnic and religious unity Abdullah Demirbas, Kurdish human rights activist and twice-elected former mayor of the Sur municipality in Diyarbakir, has long been targeted by Turkish authorities who apparently view him as a threat to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s determination to “re-Islamify” his nation. “I would like to emphasize that we believe in that inter-religious and intercultural dialogue a will bring communities together in this century,” Demirbas told his lawyer, Ms. Irina Tsukerman, while he languished in prison. Turkish officials saw it differently. They apprehended Demirbas on Aug. 5, 2015, and...

    It often seems that no one has the courage to say anything until after the fact. Genocide is the systematic and deliberate attempt to extinguish a race, ethnic group, social group or religion. After the most well documented and systematic act of genocide in recorded History, the so-called Final Solution to the Jewish Problem perpetrated by the death cult known as the Third Reich, the surviving Jewish people adopted the motto, “Never Again.” They had been the target of countless pogroms throughout History and this was their vow, this is their pledge to themselves, “Never Again!”

    A couple of years ago I was out to lunch in Bangkok at a cafeteria-style restaurant with communal tables. I had ordered one of my favorite dishes, larb moo, minced pork with peppers and spices. A few bites in I started to feel the heat. About a minute later my mouth was in full emergency mode. Bright red and with sweat pouring from my forehead, I began chugging down one bottled water after another. My Thai tablemates watched in obvious amusement. Several were also eating the larb moo, yet clearly weren’t feeling the heat to the degree that I was....

If any child educated in Arizona is not exposed to the suffering, trials and triumphs of all ethnic groups who have contributed to our state’s rich cultural mix, then we are failing to teach accurate history.”...

    Sunday on CBS' "Face The Nation," Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, said he was “baffled,” by the White House's criticisms of Israeli settlements because "ethnic purification" goes “against the American values." Last week, after a Jewish group announced settlers are moving into several apartment buildings purchased in a predominantly Arab neighborhood in Jerusalem, the White House attacked Israel, saying the move is "poisoning" the peace process. Netanyahu said that putting any restrictions on where Jews could live is “against the American values. And it doesn’t bode well for peace."

    If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor under Obamacare — if you both belong to the same race. Obamacare’s spectacular flop of a rollout distracts from its crude calculus that encourages the allocation of healthcare resources along racial lines and a doctor-patient system splintered into ethnicities. While the 2010 Patient Protecion and Affordable Care Act’s language on diversity sounds innocuous, a review of the frankly separatist thinking of the law’s ardent supporters indicates Obamacare is aiming for a health care system that puts political correctness above the struggle against illness and death.

    Quebec’s separatist government is betting on broad popular support with a proposal that prohibits public workers from wearing headscarves, skullcaps and other religious symbols, yet it is dividing the movement that advocates independence from Canada. The proposal, unveiled by the ruling Parti Quebecois last week, plays with the explosive issue of minority rights in a part of Canada, a country that prides itself as being a tapestry of immigrants rather than a U.S.-style melting pot. The government’s proposed Charter of Quebec Values would ban teachers, doctors and other public workers from wearing highly visible religious symbols, including yarmulkes, headscarves and...

Investigators said the incident happened around 2 p.m. near the intersection of Concord and Itin streets. According to police, the girls threw a bottle at the woman’s car, and when she stopped to confront the girls, they attacked her. “It’s sad, but it doesn’t surprise me. Our youth …,some of them are going in the wrong direction,” said one resident who did not want to be identified. Officers said the woman was kicked, punched,...

    Italy on Wednesday became the first major economy to require an international bail-out as its debts hit “totally unsustainable levels”. The country's escalating crisis prompted questions about whether European leaders had sufficient will or financial firepower to rescue it. The interest rate at which the Italian government borrows on the international bond markets hit seven per cent – the point at which the smaller eurozone economies of Ireland, Portugal and Greece had to be rescued. Italy, the world’s eighth largest economy, has more than £1.5 trillion worth of debt, which has prompted speculation from some world leaders that it is too...

This is dangerously close to the point where cascade-selling begins and matters spiral out of control.

One rabbi said Obama was, in essence, asking for "ethnic cleansing" of thousands of Jewish families. “It’s immoral in that basically the president of the United States is asking that 500,000 people who live, work, and raise families around Jerusalem – Jewish families – that they be uprooted, resettled, deported from their homes, have their families broken,” Rabbi Aryeh Spero, founder of Caucus...

    Schools made up of only ethnic minorities By Julie Henry, Education Correspondent Last Updated: 4:08AM BST 04/05/2008 More than 30 state schools in England are made up solely of ethnic minority pupils with no white children on the roll, according to government figures. The finding follows a warning from Britain's race watchdog that schools are becoming increasingly segregated along racial lines. This year's school census, carried out in January, found that 27 primaries and four secondaries were entirely non-white. The schools, which were not identified, are likely to include England's nine state Muslim schools and two state Sikh schools. The...

    Barack Obama’s church published an opinion piece [http://tucc.org/upload/tuccbulletin_june10.pdf, " Open Letter to Oprah from Ali Baghdadi on Her Visit to Palestine"] that accused Israel and South Africa of working together to develop an “ethnic bomb” to kill Blacks and Arabs. Here are the principal excerpts from the Pastor’s Page (the pastor being Jeremiah “God **** America” Wright), which pretty much speak for themselves. …I must tell you that Israel was the closest ally to the White Supremacists of South Africa. In fact, South Africa allowed Israel to test its nuclear weapons in the ocean off South Africa. The Israelis were...

    The classic blood libel accuses a religious group of using human blood for its rituals. The most infamous is the accusation that Jews used the blood of Christian babies to make matzoh (unleavened bread), although early Christians also were falsely accused of drinking human blood. It is quite likely that Roman emperors like Nero and Diocletian picked up on the Mass, in which wine stands in for the blood of Jesus, as a premise for this blood libel. In general, however, a blood libel is a vicious false accusation whose purpose is to incite ferocious hatred of a religion, ethnic...

    New research into inter-ethnic unions suggests we're reverting to a less romantic idea of marriage I grew up in a traditional Chinese household, where I was taught my future life partner must have an equal, if not better, upbringing than mine. That mentality is embedded in the ancient saying, "A bamboo door should match a bamboo door; a wood door should match a wood door." Essentially, what it means is you have to marry someone in the same social class if you want the relationship to last. The Chinese are not alone in this worldview. Many Indians are still bound...

    Projecting their own experience onto the rest of the world, Americans generally belittle the role of ethnic nationalism in politics. After all, in the United States people of varying ethnic origins live cheek by jowl in relative peace. Within two or three generations of immigration, their ethnic identities are attenuated by cultural assimilation and intermarriage. Surely, things cannot be so different elsewhere. Americans also find ethnonationalism discomfiting both intellectually and morally. Social scientists go to great lengths to demonstrate that it is a product not of nature but of culture, often deliberately constructed. And ethicists scorn value systems based on...

    Here in Chipping Norton, there is a picture-perfect little theatre. It’s exactly the same as a London theatre, with a balcony and a bar, only it’s much, much smaller. You really do feel, as you perch on your primary-school chair, gazing on the Punch and Judy stage, that you are locked in a Cotswold-stone dolls’ house. It’s an enchanting place and everyone round these parts is very proud of it. So consequently everyone is very cross that the Arts Council recently announced it would no longer be supplying Ł40,000 a year to help fund it. And Chipping Norton is not...

    Kenya's opposition leader has denied his supporters have engaged in ethnic cleansing, blaming government forces for targeting certain communities. Raila Odinga was responding to accusations by Justice Minister Martha Karua that his group had planned to carry out systematic ethnic cleansing. Mr Odinga told the BBC his Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) had done all it could to prevent such violence. He was speaking on the first of three days of protests over a disputed poll. Police fired live rounds and tear gas in clashes with opposition party supporters who were defying a protest ban. Clashes broke out Nairobi, Mombasa and...

    Ethnic cleansing in San Franciscoby Don Santina Wednesday, 10 October 2007 San Francisco is pushing out the poor to give the rich their million-dollar views. Not so long ago, San Francisco was home to about 100,000 Blacks, and the Fillmore district was a thriving Mecca of African American life. Today, Fillmore is gone, wiped out by "Negro Removal" in the guise of "redevelopment," and the city's Black population has shrunk to 40,000 - less than half the Black population of Augusta, Georgia. The last bastion of concentrated Black life, Hunters Point, is slated for ethnic cleansing designed to rob African...

    Christian America may soon be the death of Iraqi Christians. Although Islam long has been in the ascendancy in Iraq, the so-called Assyrians, who speak a neo-Aramaic language, predate the rise of Islam. Today, however, the Iraqi Christian community faces possible extermination. The irony is extraordinary: America, a nation with deep Christian roots, has inadvertently loosed the vicious forces bent on destroying Iraqi Christians. Persecuted by Islamic extremists and targeted for their frequent cooperation with occupation authorities, Christians have ever less hope in a nation that has fallen into violent chaos. The Assyrian International News Agency has released a new...
