    Hundreds of protesters have marched through the streets of Minneapolis to honour the life of an Australian woman shot dead by a cop. Justine Damond was killed by police officer Mohamed Noor as she stood in her pyjamas outside her home in the US city on Saturday night. The 40-year-old former Sydneysider was gunned down after calling police concerned a woman was being raped in an alley behind her house.
  • Say Goodbye To X+Y: Should Community Colleges Abolish Algebra?

    NPR ^ | July 19, 2017 | Kayla Lattimore and Julie Depenbrock
    Algebra is one of the biggest hurdles to getting a high school or college degree — particularly for students of color and first-generation undergrads. It is also the single most failed course in community colleges across the country. So if you're not a STEM major (science, technology, engineering, math), why even study algebra?

    Campus Reform ^ | July 19, 2017 | Toni Airaksinen
    Public museums and memorials serve our nation’s “foundational commitments to white heterosexual male supremacy,” according to two Texas A&M University professors. Tasha N. Dubriwny and Kristan Poirot, both of whom teach Women’s Studies at TAMU, advanced the claim in a July 12 article in the Southern Communications Journal, further alleging that U.S commemorative practices serve an inherently conservative agenda.

    A flash mob of an estimated 500 teens threw bottles, jumped on cars, and taunted police officers in Philadelphia Sunday night, police say. Police told CBS Philadelphia that a large crowd — mostly made up of children between the ages of 12 and 17 — appeared in the street and on the sidewalk outside of the Lonnie Young Recreation Center in Germantown around 6 p.m. Sunday.

    Killer policeman Mohamed Noor has said he was 'startled' by his victim Justine Damond seconds before he opened fire. The cop has told friends about why he gunned down the bride-to-be, 40, in his first account of what happened Saturday night. DailyMail.com has spoken to those friends to reveal for the first time his account of what happened that night.

    Washington Times ^ | July 19, 2017 | Douglas Ernst
    A USA Today review of “Dunkirk” is under increased scrutiny from industry peers for warning viewers that it lacks women and minorities. Social media ridicule followed the publishing of writer Brian Truitt’s reaction to director Christopher Nolan’s latest film, a World War II tale about Allied soldiers attempting to survive while pinned down by German adversaries. The columnist gave the film a glowing review while saying its lack of diversity “may rub some the wrong way.”

    Truth Revolt ^ | 7.11.2017 | Mark Tapson
    Welcome to the politically correct, multicultural utopia of the San Francisco Bay Area, where transit authorities are refusing to release surveillance videos that captured a wave of robberies committed by groups of teens at BART stations, because to do so might inspire racial animus toward minorities. Red State's Kira Davis, whom you may remember from her video for TruthRevolt here, reports that the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) authorities are withholding surveillance videos of the following violent robberies committed over the last three months: April 22: Forty to sixty kids boarded a train at the Coliseum stop and robbed seven...
  • Long After Protests, Students Shun the University of Missouri

    NY Times ^ | July 9, 2017 | Aenmona Hartocollis
    In the fall of 2015, a grassy quadrangle at the center of the University of Missouri became known nationwide as the command center of an escalating protest. Students complaining of official inaction in the face of racial bigotry joined forces with a graduate student on a hunger strike. Within weeks, with the aid of the football team, they had forced the university system president and the campus chancellor to resign.

    Jezebel ^ | July 6, 2017 | Aditi Natasha Kini
    The Big Sick has been roundly lauded in the press lately, including here at Jezebel, and not without good reason: it’s a funny, heartwarming love story based on the true-life experiences of cowriters/married couple Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon. But as much as I liked it—and I did—I also found myself exhausted, yet again, by the onscreen depiction of a brown man wanting to date a white woman, while brown women are portrayed alternately as caricatures, stereotypes, inconsequential, and/or the butts of a joke.
  • Why I Write about Race and IQ

    The National Review ^ | July 5, 2017 | Robert VerBruggen
    There are good reasons not to confine the discussion to academic journals. In the latest issue of National Review, John McWhorter has a challenging and thought-provoking essay about the topic of race and IQ — specifically, about whether that topic should even be up for discussion in liberal-arts classrooms and in the media, as opposed to in scientific journals. He suggests not, as there is nothing to gain from discussing it. I read McWhorter’s essay with special interest because I have violated the norm he proposes. I have written about race and IQ on numerous occasions — and for a...

    National Review ^ | 07/05/2017 | By John McWhorter
    Suppose it’s true. Suppose that, at the end of the day, people of African descent have lower IQs on average than do other groups of humans, and that this gap is caused, at least in part, by genetic differences. Of late, since Charles Murray was all but physically assaulted when he tried to speak at Middlebury, the issue as to whether his claim (with Richard J. Herrnstein) in The Bell Curve that blacks on average have lower IQs, and that it’s “highly likely” that genes play a role, has entered the public discourse once again, in part through a podcast...

    Students studying “multicultural competence” at one college are taught that white people can pretty much live wherever they want — and afford it, too — according to screenshots of a quiz question obtained by The College Fix. Students enrolled in an online “Wellness Coaching & Communication Skills” class through the American College of Healthcare Sciences, which offers online schooling as well as a campus in Portland, Ore., were recently quizzed on privilege.

    I'm certain this rather long essay has been around before. Because it is long, some of you may have not bothered to read it. If you do so now, you may agree with me that it outlines in brutal detail the origins of many of the troubles we now face. For that reason, I forward it again and encourage you to read it now. If you are EVER to understand why men like Jefferson, Lincoln and others believed that, while there are exceptions (think Sowell, Williams, Ben Carson, Colonel West, Herman Caine and others), it would take a looonnnggg time...

    An advert for a beauty chain has sparked furious allegations of racism when it depicts a woman with 'blackface' as being undesirable. Watsons said the ad was about the legend of Dayang Senandong, which is Malay folklore about a lady 'cursed with black skin but blessed with a beautiful voice'.  In the story, a wealthy merchant falls for an enchanting female voice.

    Horrific CCTV footage has been released of the moment a thug exposed his pregnant girlfriend's skull when he viciously beat her up at a convenience store. Jamar Bernard Woody, 35, launched the brutal attack on Shatory Irving in Roanoke, Virginia, in June last year. The 26-year-old victim was three months pregnant and dependent on crutches because of a broken ankle.

    Loyola University Chicago has chosen to renew a program limited to white students that appears to violate the Catholic school’s own nondiscrimination policy. Ramblers Analyzing Whiteness started three years ago as an “affinity space on campus for self-identified White students” who yearn to “become anti-racist, anti-supremacist White allies.”

The first episode of Tales, a six-part hip-hop anthology series, premiered Tuesday with a “reverse” retelling of NWA’s controversial 1988 song “F**k Tha Police.”

    Six teenage boys, aged between 14 and 16, are accused of stealing a Porsche and $200,000 during a Florida burglary - before blowing the cash on gold jewelry and teeth, and high end cars for themselves and their mothers. The teens; Rural Scott, 15, Jeremiah Laplace, 15, Michael Bush, 14, Joshua Sargeant, 14, Shomari Smith, 14, and Walter Walker, 16, all from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, were charged with burglary and grand theft this week.
  • Is Boston racist? Poll shows city is split — along racial lines

    Boston Globe ^ | June 25, 2017 | Jim O'Sullivan
    Bostonians are fairly evenly divided over whether theirs is a racist town, 42 percent saying yes and 45 percent believing it is not, according to a new Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll. But, perhaps unsurprisingly, views vary dramatically among the races themselves. Fifty-seven percent of those who identify as black said the city is racist, compared with 37 percent of those who call themselves white. Hispanics fell in the middle, with 44 percent believing their hometown is racist.
