  • Inclusion Means Excluding White Males

    Dear Chancellor Miller: On May 9, you announced that you were initiating a process to "rethink" our university's approach to diversity and inclusion. Then, on August 16, you announced that eleven individuals agreed to serve on your Chancellor’s Committee on Diversity and Inclusion. For the following reasons, I find the composition of the committee to be deeply problematic. 1. Your inclusion committee is 0% white male. I have written three books dealing with campus diversity issues. I have been invited to speak on issues of diversity (largely ideological) at 78 college campuses. Over the last ten years, I have written...

    Barack Obama’s latest plan to reshape America will involve punishing white communities for their lack of inclusion. Already the Obama Administration has doled out “damages” to 25,000 Americans in the last three years in housing reparation payments. It’s like Pigford on steroids. FOX NEWS VIDEO America Live reported:Shaun Donovan, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, in a July 16 speech to the NAACP about a new regulation and database aimed at adding “protected classes” into predominantly white neighborhoods. The federal government is getting serious about pushing racial and ethnic diversity into America’s neighborhoods–and is using big data and big money...

    Tampa (CNSNews.com) – In the lead up to Mitt Romney’s nomination at the Republican National Convention, GOP runner up Rick Santorum – who consistently accused Romney of being insufficiently conservative – said Republicans can be proud of their nominee. In the same speech, Santorum said that Obama and the American left talk about inclusion while advocating the destruction of more than a million lives each year through the abortion of unborn children. “We can walk out of Tampa proudly with a platform and with a nominee who stands for life, who stands for love and a welcoming society that is...

    Thousands of Muslims gathered in London on Saturday at a rally "to fight extremism and promote a moderate, inclusive version of Islam." The event's organizers, Minhaj-ul-Quran International, said prior to the event that some 12,000 Muslims are expected at Wembley Arena. The group's founder, Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri, told journalists that killing innocents is forbidden in Islam and Muslims must integrate into the societies in which they are living.

    Just when you think that our govern ment can't get any sillier, along comes something like the Military Leadership Diversity Commission -- and let's face it, up to now you didn't even realize such a thing existed -- to crush your hopes that any sensible people are left in Washington, DC. The diversity commission last week issued its completely unawaited report to call for, you guessed it, more diversity among military leadership. Not great fighting effectiveness, which should always be job No. 1. Not smarter leadership. Not braver fighting generals and fewer rear-echelon paper-pushers. No, what this country really needs...

    Nov. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Eric Cantor, the second-ranking Republican in the U.S. House, said his party needs to be inclusive and criticized some comments by talk-show host Rush Limbaugh as inappropriate. “The Republican Party in its roots is a party of inclusion and we ought to be promoting that and making sure that voices are heard,” Cantor, of Virginia, said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt,” airing today.

    A coalition of American Muslim leaders gathered Friday on the steps of Los Angeles City Hall and angrily called on Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to represent all residents on the Israel-Lebanon crisis, not just those who support Israel. The mayor, they said, has expressed strong support for Israel while ignoring repeated invitations to attend interfaith vigils for victims of both sides of the conflict. They noted that Beirut, the scene of heavy shelling, is one of Los Angeles' newest sister cities. "The mayor serves all Angelenos, and his public appearances should reflect that," said Edina Lekovic, spokeswoman...

    Carlton Pearson has still got it. The dapper clothes. The voluminous vocabulary. The toothy smile. And, perhaps most important, Mr. Pearson still has an unshakable conviction in his controversial "gospel of inclusion" – the belief that everyone will go to heaven, regardless of his or her actions on earth. The high-profile pastor lost followers, his church building, money and prestige – especially among conservatives – after he started preaching a few years ago that the gates of heaven are open to everyone, even, theoretically, to Satan. One prominent Pentecostal pastor, Clifford L. Frazier of St. Louis, summed up his reaction...
  • Liberal groups demand the exclusion of groups that exclude groups

    From Agape Press: Several liberal organizations are displeased that the Colorado-based men's ministry Promise Keepers has been granted permission to use facilities at the University of Arkansas for one of its stadium events. Critics claim PK is non-inclusive and intolerant and should therefore be precluded from visiting the campus.Next month, Promise Keepers will be holding a conference at Razorback Stadium on the University of Arkansas campus in Fayetteville. However, groups like the Arkansas chapter of the National Organization for Women, the Washington County Green Party, and the Omni Center for Peace, Justice, and Ecology want the Christian men's outreach organization...

    Placing Special Education Students in the Regular Classroom Can Be Detrimental to All by Steve Leadley 08 December 2004 The new trend of "inclusion" refers to the placement of special education students in the "regular" education classroom. A new trend has emerged in today’s educational environment. It is called “Inclusion.” For those not familiar with this term it refers to the placement of special education or “classified” students in the “regular” education classroom. The main motivation for this change in policy is the decision to place students’ self-esteem at the top of school objectives. Placing the classified student in with...

    When children who attend the McHenry County school gathered in the gym last week to brighten friends and parents with holiday cheer, they sang of lighting candles for Hanukkah, gave their rendition of a Jamaican folk song and even did their lists for Santa. But their songs never mentioned Christ or the Christmas story--an omission that drew swift criticism from Christian groups pushing public schools to remember the meaning of Christmas. Officials at Spring Grove Elementary School said they were just trying to be more inclusive of all holiday traditions and cultures during concerts Wednesday and Thursday nights. Any overlooking...

    When Ronald Reagan emerged on the California political scene in the mid-1960s, the conservative movement was a collection of ineffective, naysaying right-wingers huddling in Orange County and San Gabriel Valley backyards, feverishly parsing school books for signs of communist or pornographic influence and flirting with the oddball extremists of the John Birch Society. Reagan taught manners to these misfits and, in the process, gave them respectability. He shared their intense patriotism, their economic and social conservatism and their militant anti-communism, but he was likable, more genial than fierce. Most important, Reagan understood that a successful political movement had to be...

    His wife, Teresa Heinz, used to call herself an "African American," but when it comes to hiring top staff for his presidential campaign, Sen. John Kerry apparently prefers white folks. CNN's Carlos Watson reports today: "The Kerry campaign, as of yet, has no one of color in the innermost circle, including Kerry's campaign manager, campaign chairperson, media adviser, policy director, foreign policy adviser, general election manager, convention planner, national finance chairman, and head of VP search team." Kerry's all-white staff is likely to make for some uncomfortable comparisons with the Bush administration, notes Watson, which has appointed African-Americans to the...

    I am certified to teach public school students up to the 12th grade. In order to teach kids in grades 6-12, I must have a major or a minor in a particular subject. If I don’t have the qualifications I won’t be eligible to teach at that grade level. It’s as simple as that. As a matter of fact, even though I am already a teacher of middle school students and have a M Ed in Education, I will be considered unqualified to teach middle school according to the more stringent standards of NCLB if I do not take two...

    HONOLULU (AP) - A federal judge ruled Monday that the exclusive Kamehameha Schools may continue its Hawaiians-only admissions policy, rejecting a discrimination complaint from a student who said the policy violated his civil rights. U.S. District Judge Alan Kay said the admissions policy passed muster because of the school's unique historical circumstances. Since the private school receives no federal funding, it should not be held to the same scrutiny as public schools, Kay said. The school's trustees, sitting behind their attorneys, cried and hugged each other after the decision, while outside the federal courthouse, several hundred Hawaiian activists wearing red...

    It's Al's party now Posted: November 10, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 Creators Syndicate, Inc. In a single news cycle last week, the nation got a splendid lesson on why the Democratic Party has ceased to be America's Party. For months, Howard Dean, in his own Vermont way, has tried to connect with working-class whites who have deserted his party to make the South a bastion of Republicans like Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. Dean has told Democratic audiences that Southern folks who paste Confederate flag decals on their pickups should vote for us, because we...

    Here are selected excerpts: AFFIRMATIVE ACTION is how colleges do business, a familiar practice we don't want to change. . . . I support some racial preferences in college hiring and admissions. Academics argue - correctly, in my view - that we have an obligation to offer our students diverse learning communities, to broaden them. My problem is with the hypocrisy of most academics. While colleges strive for ethnic diversity, they actively oppose ideological diversity. Surveys find that only about 10 percent of social science and humanities faculty vote Republican. On leaving his political science department for a think tank,...

    Hurricane Latonya? Hurricane Names Raise a Warning The 2003 hurricane season is here, and that means a whole new list of names such as Larry, Sam and Wanda ready to make tropical-storm history. Although Spanish and French names are included in this year’s lineup, among them Juan and Claudette, which struck Texas last week, popular African American names, like Keisha, Jamal and Deshawn, are nowhere to be found. Some black lawmakers don’t seem to mind, but Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) does. “All racial groups should be represented,” said Lee.

    ***STATEMENT OF REV. JESSE LEE PETERSON REGARDING FALLOUT AT THE NEW YORK TIMES AFTER JAYSON BLAIR SCANDAL*** The resignation of Executive Editor Howell Raines and Managing Editor Gerald Boyd of the New York Times is the direct fallout of the Jayson Blair scandal. The Times allowed racial diversity and political correctness to trump truth and character. By hiring and promoting a con man [Blair], the Times further damaged its already tarnished reputation and hurt the ethical journalists who work for them. If Blair were not a black male, he probably would not have been hired without a college degree. If...
