    The College Fix ^ | May 10, 2017 | by Greg Piper
    It wasn’t a Cinco de Mayo party. It had no sombreros or tacos, as far as anyone knows. Yet the University of Chicago’s Phi Gamma Delta, known casually as FIJI, has nonetheless been reported for the “bias incident” of throwing a party where attendees wore construction outfits. Relevant to know: Its fraternity house has been “under renovation and construction for two years.” But activists don’t care about context. If the left-wing arbiters of cultural appropriation get their way, FIJI’s members could face disciplinary action. The Chicago Maroon reports that the party was originally scheduled for May 5, but its start...

    Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D., N.Y.) spoke Thursday at Boys and Girls High School in Brooklyn, where he told the students that the Trump administration was trying to damage the African-American community. "Jim Crow might be dead," Jeffries said at the beginning of his speech. "He's got some nieces and nephews that are alive and well, and a few of them are running around 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue." The audience laughed and cheered in agreement with Jeffries' claim.

    Noted liberal Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe claimed without evidence in a series of tweets Thursday that a recently deceased New York judge was the victim of a racist murder. Sheila Abdus-Salaam was the first Muslim-American judge and the first black woman to serve on the New York Court of Appeals. Late Wednesday, her body was found in the Hudson River after she was reported missing. Abdus-Salaam was 65 years old.

    Rev. Al Sharpton is not happy with what he perceives as the White House's special treatment of President Trump's daughter. . . . "Giving a office on the West Wing of Ivanka Trump, somebody explain to me how you can give security clearance, access to classified material, and a office to somebody that don't have a title or job?" Sharpton said. "They say now she ain't got no title. She ain't got no role. We ain't payin' her no money. But she can see everything classified."

    Leaders of the Congressional Black Caucus emerged from a meeting Wednesday at the White House to say they found some areas of agreement with President Trump on helping minority communities but still are not convinced he’s not a racist. CBC Chairman Cedrick L. Richmond said that many of their constituents urged them to not attend the meeting because of their hostility toward the president. But he said the black lawmakers wanted to offer an “opportunity to engage” Mr. Trump, who aggressively courted black voters during the campaign and vowed to make urban neighborhoods a priority for his administration.

    Former President George W. Bush is criticizing President Donald Trump's first month in office, though he remains optimistic about the future. "I don't like the racism and I don't like the name-calling and I don't like the people feeling alienated," Bush told People magazine. "Nobody likes that." . . . "I didn't feel like speaking out before because I didn't want to complicate the job and I'm not going to this time. However, at the Bush Center we are speaking up." The Bush Center programs include immigration ceremonies, AIDS prevention programs in Africa and leadership training for Muslim women.

    Chicago police clear officers of racial profiling in stop of U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush On Aug. 4, 2016, U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush was pulled over in Bronzeville. He was let go without a ticket being issued, but later filed a complaint with IPRA alleging racial profiling. This video contains body cam footage from one of the officers that Rush filed the complaint against. (Source: CPD) Chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the department's Bureau of Internal Affairs found that the two Wentworth District officers acted properly because they had probable cause to make the stop. Earlier that day, officers at roll...

    A controversial painting depicting police officers as pigs has been permanently removed from the Capitol complex. The office of Rep. Dave Reichert, R-Wash., — a former sheriff who officially appealed to the Architect of the Capitol that the painting be removed — confirmed to the Washington Examiner that it was taken down for good on Tuesday. The painting, done by a black Missouri teenager, was one of hundreds of winners of the Congressional Art Competition. Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., hung it in the tunnel leading from the Cannon building to the Capitol complex.

    "Today, Donald Trump attacked me on Twitter. He said that I'm 'all talk' and 'no action,'" Lewis wrote in a fundraising email sent out by the Democratic National Committee. "Some leaders reject decades of progress and want to return to the dark past, when the power of law was used to deny the freedoms protected by the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and its Amendments," he wrote. "We need leaders who will stand up and speak up and speak out for Americans, not someone who will work against us. Not someone who will move us backwards.

    Journalists piled on criticism after President-elect Trump shot back at Democratic Rep. John Lewis for questioning the legitimacy of the election, many calling attention to the fact that Lewis is a civil rights icon and seemingly ignoring the fact that Trump does not mention race in his tweets. "Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to......mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results," Trump tweeted early Saturday. "All talk, talk, talk - no action or results. Sad!" Almost immediately Trump was decried...

    That has been a problem in my party, that when we’re in power, we’re nice. We bend over backwards to work with people. . . . Waters said she wouldn’t even bother to meet with Trump if he invited her to the White House, saying she doesn’t trust him. “I’m not going to go,” Waters said. “I have no intentions of sitting down with him … He can’t be trusted. Why should we work with someone I can’t trust? … I’m going to fight him every inch of the way.”

    Finally, a mass demonstration was called-off because students again couldn’t agree on what to demonstrate against. Some even balked at repeating the chant that they were asked to recite at the planned protest. ... Student Robert Gardner expressed his unhappiness over the “trauma some of the organizers made…It was really hurtful to have other marginalized identities silenced because a small fringe of organizers decided that their oppressions are more important (talk about Oppression Olympics)…” Gardner added that he did not “appreciate one of the organizers calling my friend a b---- because of the chants she was told to say.”

According to the Facebook post Stephan shared, “…about 20 of us walked down the block chanting & laughing, 4 or 5 Trump supporters confronted us & assaulted us yelling, ‘Blue Lives Matter’ ‘Get out of my country’ call us ‘faggots’ & ‘commies as they wailed on us…”

    In a new wrinkle in the "black lives matter" movement, an editor of a top-rated legal website is calling on blacks to scare whites by automatically acquitting African-Americans accused of murdering or raping whites, no matter what the facts. On Above The Law, African-American editor Elie Mystal called for "jury nullification" by blacks when on juries in trials that focus on white victims. "Jury nullification would get white people's attention. Remember how pissed-off white people were about O.J.? And that was just one dude. White people would notice if black jurors simply refused to play along," he wrote.

    Roseman lashes out at missionaries and preachers, and all who have propagated the myth of White Jesus. All their preaching is just one more instance of “White people telling minority peoples what to say, and how to behave,” she states. “By beating individuals into submission, and calling it love, White Christians have brainwashed, and whitewashed generations of POC’s traditions,” she announces. Never mind that for most black Americans, those traditions are intimately linked to the black community’s long-standing ties with the Christian Church.

I would say they probably need to look in the mirror at what they value,” Kaepernick said, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

    The election of Donald Trump has, at least according to some, produced a spike in so called “hate crimes” around the nation. Others find reason to doubt this, citing instances which turn out to be hoaxes or staged events by liberals, or simply a left leaning media focus on isolated incidents which blow it all out of proportion. There seems to be little reason to doubt it in the mind of New York’s governor, however. Andrew Cuomo is stepping up to create a special task force to battle this new scourge whether it’s happening or not.
