    A white professor at the University of Texas at San Antonio has come under fire allegedly calling the police on a black student for putting her feet up on a chair. Biology professor Anita Mos is now under investigation for potential discrimination after footage of her kicking Paige Burgess out of her Anatomy & Physiology class on Monday, went viral. The video, filmed by a classmate, showed the moment three campus officers arrived at the classroom. Moss then directed them towards Burgess who stood up, and was escorted out.
  • We Have an Identity Problem

    According to a recent report in The New York Times, Health and Human Services Department officials have been circulating a proposal to define sex. Their memo says, "Sex means a person's status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth." They add, "The sex listed on a person's birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person's sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence." I think the latter statement lacks complete rigor. It's chromosomes, not what's on a birth certificate, that determine one's sex. Therefore, if a fetus has XX chromosomes,...

    The midterms left us with a lot of things to think about. One of the most mind-numbing was when Oprah and Obama made it pretty clear that they believe America still oppresses black people. “All of us may have been created equal,” a preachy Oprah said at her Stacey Abrams rally. “But if ya woke! If you woke; if you woke just-a lil’ bit – you got sense enough to know that everybody’s not treated equally. The reality is this: We see injustices – big and small – all around us every single day of our lives. … (A)s our...

    Members of Missouri's legislative black caucus on Thursday elected state Rep. Steven Roberts, D-St. Louis, to chair the group — but Roberts' ascension drew criticism from one of his colleagues who two years ago accused Roberts of raping her. Rep. Cora Faith Walker, D-Ferguson, announced Thursday on Facebook that she was leaving the caucus. "I have resigned from the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus," Walker wrote. "I stand in my truth and am incredibly grateful to my colleagues who stand with survivors."

    The Gwinnett County, Georgia community was in shock last weekend after members of one its high school marching bands spelled out a racially offensive term during a performance. During the halftime show at a football game last Friday, four members of the Brookwood High School marching band used instrument covers to spell out the slur “COON.” The covers typically are used to spell out the school mascot name “BRONCOS.”

    Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont says the reluctance of white voters to support minority candidates explains the defeat of a number of a highly touted progressive candidates in Tuesday’s midterms. “I think you know there are a lot of white folks out there who are not necessarily racist who felt uncomfortable for the first time in their lives about whether or not they wanted to vote for an African-American,” Sanders told The Daily Beast in an interview published Thursday. “I think next time around by the way it will be a lot easier for them to do that.”

    A shocking scene was filmed on a flight arriving at LAX as a black woman yelled an onslaught of homophobic slurs at another black passenger. The Friday clip shows the woman shouting a plethora of offensive marks at the man, who can occasionally be heard retorting his own dig. It is currently unknown where the flight had been coming from. The woman repeatedly tells the man to 'shut the f**k up,' growing louder as other passengers laugh in the background.

The government partnered youth employment initiative is a job creation programme. It involves a partnership between government and labour. It hopes to combat the country's rising unemployment rate.

    In case you missed it earlier Wednesday, we highlighted an Election Day piece by Tiana Lowe, who predicted that if the big blue wave didn’t happen, white women would be made the scapegoats by the Left by Wednesday. And she was right. We’ve already done a couple of posts on the “vagina shaming” of conservative women who voted Republican, but the hits just keep coming. Here’s the Atlantic’s Jemele Hill making the exact same argument: that white women are voting against their own interests to preserve the patriarchy.

    With the loss of Beto O’Rourke, Stacey Abrams, and Andrew Gillum, some progressives were looking to explain why far left candidates have so much trouble winning elections. The conclusion they reached? White women aren’t voting for their interests and are instead supporting the patriarchy. Let’s start with this tweet by the Women's March:

    FLORIDA - The U.S. Senate race between Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Sen. Bill Nelson is still statistically too close to call – despite Scott calling the race for himself Tuesday night. Poll results are counting in at 50-50 with Scott pulling ahead slightly with less than 40,000 votes between them. In a speech to supporters in Naples just before midnight on Tuesday, Scott said he was confident in his victory.

    When I was a freshman at the University of California, Riverside, in 1988, I drove a carload of excited fellow Vietnamese students to nearby Orange County. It was only 13 years after the end of the Vietnam War, but already there was a Vietnamese American Dream, symbolized by our destination, the Asian Garden Mall in Westminster. To the strains of Vietnamese pop music, we ate Vietnamese food, browsed Vietnamese goods, and sat in the balcony of the American-style mall, sipping Vietnamese iced coffee while we watched Vietnamese people. The mall was the heart of the Little Saigon in Orange County....

    A 16-year-old rapper has become London's fifth stabbing victim in under a week as the number of people knifed to death in Britain this year hits 250. The teenager was found with suspected stab wounds in Tulse Hill, south London, after police were called to reports of a shooting at 10.53pm last night. Paramedics tried to save the boy, but he was pronounced dead at 11.41pm, forcing Metropolitan Police to open its 119th murder investigation in the capital this year. Friends said the boy was a drill rapper known as 'JaySav' and claimed the attack may be connected to the...

    Florida voters are still casting ballots in the race for governor, but already some liberals can’t help but ask: Could Democrat Andrew Gillum be their answer to 2020? The 39-year-old African-American mayor of Tallahassee is in a dead heat with white 40-year-old pro-Trump Republican Ron DeSantis. Gillum lit up national progressives by pitching Texas voters an unabashedly progressive platform, including....

    Among the many questions about an FBI corruption probe that is nagging Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum – one that could follow the Democrat uptown to the governor's mansion if he wins election next week – is something few people outside Florida are asking: What does his political rise have to do with 311 E. Jennings St.? An arcane question, perhaps. Yet the Tallahassee address offers a window into how politics is done in Florida's capital, and may say a lot about how Bernie Sanders-endorsed leftist has mastered the game.

    A Catholic university recently cancelled classes for the day in order to address the alleged problem of racism on its campus, with the school also bringing in a professor from California “who focuses on diversity and inclusion” in order to speak to the students this week. The University of St. Thomas, a Catholic school in St. Paul, Minnesota, gave students the day off of classwork as part of its plan to “[take] action after a racist message was recently written on a student’s door,” KSTP reports.

    Don Lemon has doubled down on his statement that white men represent the biggest terrorist threat in the country, with the CNN host saying there are 'cold hard facts' that back up his remarks. Lemon has attracted criticism from conservative circles ever since he made the initial statement on Monday night in a guest appearance on fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo's show. The CNN Tonight host started out by talking about the negative attention given to a caravan of potential refugees currently making their way from Mexico to the U.S. They also discussed the fatal shooting of two black shoppers...

    Democratic Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill sparked a fierce backlash from a Democratic legislator in her home state after listing her as an example of a “crazy Democrat.” In a scathing series of tweets on Monday and Tuesday, Missouri Democratic state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal referred to McCaskill as “Dixie Claire,” described her as a “piece of shit,” compared her to a slave owner and accused “McCaskill and her racist democratic friends” of alienating the party’s base voters. McCaskill raised eyebrows in the final weeks of the midterm campaign by running a radio ad that described McCaskill as “not one of those...

    Sen. Joe Donnelly (Ind.), a conservative Democrat in one of the tightest reelection battles in the country, made a cringeworthy and puzzling statement about some minorities on his staff during a debate Tuesday night. To begin, here’s a quick vocab refresher. The definition of the word “but,” according to Google, is “to introduce something contrasting with what has already been mentioned." So it was strange when Donnelly, in what seemed like a genuine effort to compliment his aides, said this when asked how he would bring diversity into his staffing: “Our state director is Indian American, but he does an...
