    American University is hosting a seminar for its faculty to teach them a new way of grading students without relying too heavily on the quality of their work. The seminar will be taught by University of Washington–Tacoma professor Dr. Asao Inoue. “Grading papers based on their quality imposes ‘white’ standards that are insensitive to alternate ways of thinking and communicating,” Inoue explained. “Just because a student’s writing seems incoherent and ungrammatical to a white professor doesn’t mean he should give it a bad grade. President Trump often makes grammatical mistakes. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) is often incoherent. These...

    An Ivy League professor bashed "the smiling face of Whiteness" in response to the recent controversy involving an interaction between a Native American man and a Catholic teenage supporter of President Donald Trump. “Whiteness endlessly forgives its own transgressions,” University of Pennsylvania associate professor Ebony Elizabeth Thomaswrote on Sunday about the confrontation between Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann and Native American Nathan Phillips. “It rarely, if ever, gives those of us it harms and maims and kills time to process our motions [sic].” According to Thomas, the “smiling face of Whiteness” is one that “always hides a knife...

    Native American activist Nathan Phillips confronted MAGA hat-wearing teens from Covington Catholic high school at the March for Life, where video of his interaction with the students went viral in the mainstream media. This is not the first time Phillips has garnered media attention accusing students of racism. Phillips previously accused students from Eastern Michigan University of being racist toward him in 2015. (READ: Phillips Starred In Skrillex Video About Attacking Police). In that 2015 instance, Phillips also approached the students, not the other way around, though he claimed the students called him over. Here is Phillips describing the encounter,...

    en. Kamala D. Harris of California joined the 2020 presidential contest on Monday, thrusting a daughter of immigrants from Jamaica and India into the Democratic race two years after she arrived in the Senate. Harris, a 54-year-old former prosecutor raised in a state that has been the crucible of the Trump resistance, expanded a growing field of candidates fighting for the nomination of a party that is increasingly nonwhite and fueled by women alienated by the president. She made the announcement during an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and in a video that her campaign posted online.

    The white and black oppressors of the lawless Left Democratic Party, who abhor Almighty God the Creator and His RIGHTEOUSNESS (Rom. 1:18-32) only seek to agitate, control, use, enrage and scare their black Democratic voters and to keep them on their state plantation. This was NEVER MLK's vision for Africain Americans. The very ones who are black America's lawless oppressors are usually put back in power each time by Black America; making heavier their chains of social ills. The Left is horrified of losing their political stranglehold and power and truly care nothing about black America. The black population are...

    Dear friends, have you had enough of the lawless race baiters on both sides of the color chart today? Lawless blacks and lawless whites dividing America and creating a horrific wake of envy, violence, lawlessness and discord because of their hatred and lawless mindsets (Psalm 14, Rom. 1:18-32; 3, 1 Cor. 1:18, Gal. 5:17-21, James 4:1-7, Jude 1:10). Almost everyone today is offended by something and a victim of someone yet none seek to look in the mirror and make a judgment based on the Word of Almighty God. Such is the world of lawless moral relativism. Many celebrities and...

    Rev. Jacqui Lewis, a senior minister at Middle Collegiate Church in New York, took the stage Saturday at the Women’s March and announced what she believed to be Americans’ greatest enemies. “I am so glad to be able to follow my indigenous family and share some words of blessing,” Lewis said as she opened her speech. “Standing here and looking at you and thinking about this movement makes me want to tell you what it means for me to be a Christian pastor.” “There’s all kinds of Christians, but I’m the kind that believes that there’s more than one path...

    Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) wrote in a USA Today op-ed Sunday that some people affiliated with the GOP have recently "made racist comments that give legitimacy to hateful ideologies." "As a Republican, I believe it’s unfortunate that a perception still exists in the minds of some Americans that the GOP condones racism. Our party was built upon the beliefs of President Abraham Lincoln, who took the significant step to put us on the long path for equality," Hurd wrote in the op-ed published on the eve of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. "Sadly, some people affiliated with our party have...

    It took 14 months for the noose to show up. Fourteen months where Marcus Boyd says he endured racist comments, slights, even threats in a hostile workplace run by General Motors. A workplace where people declared bathrooms were for "whites only," where black supervisors were denounced as "boy" and ignored by their subordinates, where black employees were called "monkey," or told to "go back to Africa." A workplace where black employees were warned a white colleague's "daddy" was in the Ku Klux Klan. Where white workers wore shirts with Nazi symbols underneath their coveralls. In Ohio. In 2018.

    An ESPN host suggested Wednesday it was racist for President Donald Trump to serve fast food to the Clemson football team at the White House, saying such food being given to players of a "predominately black sport" gave her pause. Paid for by Trump, the White House offered a spread of Wendy's, McDonald's, Burger King and Domino's pizza to the Clemson players on Monday when they visited to celebrate their national championship win. While the players appeared to enjoy the food, some political and sports observers took Trump to task for what they considered a low-class gesture.

    A new bar in Jersey City, N.J., is already racking up a bad reputation — for displaying a dress code that was interpreted as “racist.” The Ashford is a highly anticipated addition to the up-and-coming area, but its debut seems to have fallen flat during the first week, based on some reviews. And although a number of people have posted some semi-flattering comments about the food and interior of the speakeasy-style eatery, others couldn’t get past a sign that was posted outside its front door. “Confused with the dress code,” a Yelp reviewer named Sam K. wrote. “My blonde female...

    Anyone who’s NOT a leftist Democrat has been called a racist. If you want lower taxes, you’re a racist. But lower taxes are for all races, not just one. If you want capitalism over socialism, you’re a racist. But blacks or anyone of any other race who makes a million or billion dollars under capitalism gets to keep it. True racists would not want this. What’s the implication here? That “people of color” cannot succeed or achieve? And therefore they need socialism? No other implication could be made from the constant, hysterical shrieking by leftists that anyone who opposes their...

    Sirius XM radio host David Webb, who happens to be black, had an awkward moment on his show this week when a CNN analyst began lecturing him on his alleged “white privilege.” [snip] “David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege,” the guest replied. “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black,” the Fox News contributor deadpanned. “You went immediately with an assumption. You’re talking to a black man who started out in rock radio in Boston, who crossed the paths into hip-hop rebuilding one of the greatest...

    American Thinker ^ | 12-19-2017 | Thomas Lifson
    Shopkeepers in Philadelphia's neighborhood convenience stores that serve food and beverages, locally referred to as "beer delis," face a legal prohibition on the thick glass barriers around cashiers that protect them from stickup artists wielding guns, knives, and other weapons. Because the shopkeepers predominately are Asian, and the customers (and robbers) are mostly black, this imbroglio looks a lot like a racist quest for vengeance against a commercially successful minority group.(Koreans) Julie Shaw of the Philadelphia Inquirer provides the details: Despite strong opposition from Asian American beer deli owners and their supporters, Philadelphia City Council voted, 14-3, Thursday to approve...

    Democratic councilwoman says the safety measure relied on in low-income neighborhoods hurts shoppers' feelings. Philadelphia is one step closer to getting rid of bulletproof glass in many of its small businesses as part of a larger effort to crack down on loitering, public urination and potential drug sales -- but it's triggered backlash from the shopkeepers.
  • Bill would force Philly's 'stop-and-go' stores to remove bulletproof glass

    12/03/2017 6:40:14 PM PST · by BusterDog · 32 replies
    A Philadelphia city councilwoman is defending her controversial bill that would force certain businesses to remove bulletproof barriers separating cashiers and customers. Councilwoman Cindy Bass said in a statement her proposed legislation only affects stores applying for a "large establishment" license, or sit-down restaurants where food is served and there is seating and tables for 30 or more people. The goal is to crack down on so-called "stop-and-go" shops, or convenience stores that sell hot food and alcohol, many of which have become nuisances to neighborhoods with intoxicated and unruly customers, according to Bass and other lawmakers.
