  • Univ. of Vermont holds privilege retreat for students who 'self-identify as white'

    The University of Vermont held a three-day retreat so students who “self-identify as white” could confront their own “white privilege.” “Examining White Privilege: A Retreat for Undergraduate Students Who Self-Identify as White” took place last weekend, November 13-15, and was “specifically for white students.” According to the university, the self-identifying white students who attend the retreat will come to “recognize and understand white privilege from an individual experience” and have the opportunity to “conceptualize and articulate whiteness from a personal and systematic lense as well as the impact of white privilege on the UVM community and beyond.” The self-identifying white...

    The president of the University of Missouri, Tim Wolfe, had to go. He had to go because he benefitted from "white privilege." That, at least, was the victorious argument of the intellectual heavyweights of Concerned Student 1950, who insisted that Wolfe acknowledge his "white privilege" before leaving office in a handwritten - not typed, dammit! - letter.This raises some rather obvious questions, like: What is "white privilege"? Why is it that Tim Wolfe's "white privilege" mattered while that of Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel (salary: $3.1 million for helping men in pads hit each other) and Assistant Professor Melissa Click...

    How bad is Jeb Bush's Bush problem? A new Quinnipiac poll suggests it is very bad. The national survey shows Bush running well behind Donald Trump and Ben Carson, tied for third place in the GOP race with Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. But that is not the most serious problem for Bush in the poll. Quinnipiac pollsters asked respondents a simple, open-ended question: "What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of Jeb Bush?" Quinnipiac published a table of all the responses given five or more times. Here is the list of the top eight...

It is an elusive privilege, and all whites have it no matter your background, where you cam from, or even your income. If you are white, you are to blame, period. What is not realized is that the White Privilege meme was actually first mentioned by the Weatherman Underground group of Bill Ayers and Bernardine...

    What is Islam? The obvious dictionary definition answer is that its a religion, but legally speaking it actually enjoys all of the advantages of race, religion and culture with none of the disadvantages. Islam is a religion when mandating that employers accommodate the hijab, but when it comes time to bring it into the schools, places that are legally hostile to religion, American students are taught about Islam, visit mosques and even wear burkas and recite Islamic prayers to learn about another culture. Criticism of Islam is denounced as racist even though the one thing that Islam clearly isnt is...

CityLab noted the study's starkest findings in the PolicyLink study: San Francisco is predicted to be the "whitest county" in the Bay Area by the year 2040. San Francisco is the only county in the Bay Area that is becoming less diverse; surrounding counties are becoming more diverse as soaring rent prices continue to drive people into other cities and towns. "It's startling because the city's diversity and identity as a progressive, inclusive city is seriously at-risk," Sarah Treuhaft,...

Once made to feel guilty, the white individuals soon begin to hate themselves for...

Mr. Rifkins lesson will ask students to look at African American scientists of the past. The assignment asks the question, Why, percentage-wise, are there dramatically fewer black physicists than black Americans? Is it because black students are not interested in physics? Not capable? Something else? Oddly, Rifkins curriculum specifically bans studying any other minorities but African Americans. We do this, the lesson explains, because its a particularly illustrative example; we arent going to directly address other scientific minorities, and there...

Irigaray, who describes herself as a "Feminist Philosopher," wrote her thoughts in the 1987 book Parler nest jamais neutre. The quote was listed proudly recently by her current employer, The European Graduate School, as a cutting-edge example of their faculty's thinking. The quote itself is as incoherent as it sounds, but we have decided to post it in its entirety below to make certain that all context is given: "Is E=Mc a sexed...

    Privilege is a new Cargo Cult The concept of "Privilege" has been bouncing around in the back of my mind since I first heard of it. The concept is so ridiculous on the surface that I simply passed it off as race hustlers looking for a new revenue stream. However, it finally came to me: Privilege is a religion, a resurgence of the Cargo Cult of the South Pacific. During WWII, primitive Melanesian tribesmen saw (mostly) white men bringing enormous quantities of manufactured materials, "Cargo," through their home areas. Lacking in any grounding in technology they imagined that the Cargo...

    The concept of white privilege remains controversial in the same way people still argue about climate change. A small, increasingly-fringe faction might argue that it doesn't exist at all. Another broad, more conservative group might concede that it does, technically, exist, but still disagree about what it means, whether it's important and what, if anything, we can do about it. Still, many others would argue that acknowledging and working to understand it is an important step toward fixing the problem -- in the case of white privilege, the problem being compounded, inter-generational inequality that, although sometimes subtle, is still present...

    One of the current liberal cliches tells us whites are privileged. The color of their skin evidently bestows benefits others do not receive. They are therefore supposed to be grateful and defer to those who are less fortunate. But in what does this privilege consist? Yes, whites have not been discriminated against the way African-Americans have. They have not been denied jobs or forced to drink from separate fountains because of the pigmentation of their epidermis. This is surely an advantage but how big an advantage? Charges of white privilege make it sound as if every Caucasian is automatically...

The phrase, handed down by my moral superiors, descends recklessly, like an Obama-sanctioned drone, and aims laser-like at my pinkish-peach complexion, my maleness, and the nerve I displayed in offering an opinion rooted in a personal Weltanschauung. Check your privilege, they tell me in a command that...

    Submitted by Simon Black via Sovereign Man blog, In the Land of the Free, people grow up hearing a lot of things about their freedom. You're told that you live in the freest country on the planet. You're told that other nations 'hate you' for your freedom. And you're told that you have the most open and fair justice system in the world. This justice system is supposedly founded on bedrock principles-- things like a defendant being presumed innocent until proven guilty. The right to due process and an impartial hearing. The right to counsel and attorney-client privilege. Yet each...

    by John UrbanTop Right News How much longer will the once-legendary NBC News permit the unhinged freak show at MSNBC to continue? Reacting to the news that A&E was reversing its "indefinite suspension" of 'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson, after a massive viewer revolt -- the inmates at the MSNBC asylum are truly losing it. After panelist Gregory Angelon advocated for a dialogue between left and right, sayingwere getting into a dangerous point in this country right now, where it is almost an us versus them culture, guest host 'professor' Michael Eric Dyson responded. Conveniently ignoring that there is...

    When I read about Boriss speech, and when I think about all the patronising, elitist, offensive stuff that this government and pretty much every government I can remember have said, it makes me angry. Things like accusing poor people of not knowing how to budget, how to cook, how to feed their kids, how to make good decisions, or of being lazy, stupid etc. Suggestions from ministers that they could easily live on the amounts people get in benefits. Suggestions that people dont try hard enough to get jobs. Suggestions that they dont work hard enough. They all make me...

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev), as well as Senators Ron Wyden (D-Ore), Tim Johnson (D-SD), Barbara Boxer (D-Calif), Patty Murray (D-Wash), and Thomas Carper (D-Del), have exempted their staffs from having to comply with the Affordable Care Act requirements. The extraordinary difficulties and complexities of getting insurance via the federal healthcare exchange are too severe for these key members of government to have to deal with, Reid maintained. The work that they do for me is too important to be sidetracked while they try to cope with the large volume of new regulations and the poor performance of the...

    Under the Affordable Care Act, members of Congress and their staffs are slated to lose their gold-plated, Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) and be forced to purchase coverage from one of the insurance exchanges established by the Act. The prospect of having to live under the same law as ordinary citizens has sparked widespread fear and continuous griping from these lawmakers and their aides. President Obama has heard their pitiful cries and arranged for the Office of Personnel Management to issue a regulation that will have the taxpayers pick up any costs over-and-above what these beneficiaries were paying under...

    A federal judge gave a skeptical reception Wednesday to the Obama administrations arguments that the courts should stay out of the dispute over the Justice Departments refusal to turn over some Operation Fast and Furious-related documents to a House committee. Last June, the fight led President Barack Obama to assert executive privilege over the records of the controversial gun trafficking investigation, and to House votes finding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena from the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson spent most of an hour-and-a-half hearing Wednesday

    Dr. Prager provides a brief summary of his longer article: The subsequent dominance of the Western world can largely be attributed to the sexual revolution initiated by Judaism and later carried forward by Christianity. This revolution consisted of forcing the sexual genie into the marital bottle. It ensured that sex no longer dominated society, heightened male-female love and sexuality (and thereby almost alone created the possibility of love and eroticism within marriage), and began the arduous task of elevating the status of women."
