  • Male students 'uncomfortable' on Texas campuses, education official says

    Houston Chronicle ^ | 11-17-2017 | Lindsay Ellis
    Outnumbered male college students in Texas have created a sharp gender gap in statewide completion rates – and, according to the state’s higher education commissioner, a campus cultural problem for men. “We’re getting to the point where males feel uncomfortable on some college campuses,” said Raymund Paredes, who leads Texas’ higher education coordinating board. Paredes spoke Thursday at the University of Houston System’s board meeting to address progress toward broader statewide goals of having 60 percent of young adults in Texas earn a post-secondary degree or certificate by 2030. He identified several target populations that are lagging in achieving those...

    A new FBI report indicates that hate crimes committed against white Americans are the fastest growing racial hate crimes in the United States. The FBI report on 2016 Hate Crime Statistics shows that in 2016, there were 876 reported anti-white hate crime offenses in the United States. In 2015, this number was 734, indicating a 19.34 percent increase. There were more racial hate crime offenses altogether in 2016 compared to 2015. There were 4,029 single-bias incidents that targeted “Race/Ethnicity/Ancestry” in 2015, compared to 4,229 in 2016. Anti-Hispanic or Latino hate crimes also increased in 2016. In 2015, the number of...

    Over the weekend, the failing New York Times ran an opinion piece, titled, Can My Children Be Friends With White People? These are the times we are living in today. When everything is political and no one can get over the fact that Donald Trump is president, liberals are falling over themselves to make race an even bigger deal than it already is for them. Well, this identity politics strategy worked so well for them in recent years, why not keep it going? These days, we live around Americans who care not about the content of one’s character, but instead...
  • No, Vox, ‘Small Government’ Does Not Mean White Nationalism

    The Daily Signal ^ | November 2, 2017 | Amy Swearer
    According to a recent article in Vox, conservatives who denounce government overreach aren’t really concerned about burdensome regulations. No—it turns out the “language of small government” is really just “a handmaiden to ethno-nationalism.” Proof? The author, David Roberts, points to a 2016 New York Times story that depicted a few white men in rural America venting their anger over regulations against “coal rolling”—the practice of modifying diesel truck engines to spew thick black smoke. Apparently, being a blue-collar white man who likes spewing black smoke into the air makes you a white nationalist. And apparently, spewing black smoke into the...
  • Law Professor: No, it’s Not OK to be White!

    The failing New York Times published a very racist op-ed on Saturday, an article written by a (black) law professor at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University. The professor’s name is Ekow N. Yankah and the op-ed is rather strangely titled “Can My Children Be Friends With White People?” Obviously, the “professor” concludes that no, his children cannot be friends with white people, and that’s somehow kosher, as race-relations under Obama-the Unifier reached historic lows and we’ll just have to follow into the steps of the dear leader, now with that white supremacist in the White...

    My oldest son, wrestling with a 4-year-old’s happy struggles, is trying to clarify how many people can be his best friend. “My best friends are you and Mama and my brother and …” But even a child’s joy is not immune to this ominous political period. This summer’s images of violence in Charlottesville, Va., prompted an array of questions. “Some people hate others because they are different,” I offer, lamely. A childish but distinct panic enters his voice. “But I’m not different.” It is impossible to convey the mixture of heartbreak and fear I feel for him. Donald Trump’s election...

    The murder trial of Jose Ines Garcia Zarate for the 2015 death of Kate Steinle has provided an occasion for right-wingers from coast to coast to demand vengeance on anyone who might look like an undocumented immigrant. A white person dies at the hands of an undocumented immigrant — and it may even have been an accident — and the Right springs into action, passing laws demanding justice. White people gunned down by another white guy at a church in Texas or in Las Vegas or every day in America … nothing. White people die in fires and floods caused...

    Taylor Swift’s reputation is a complicated mess. Love her or hate her, she knows this and we know this — it's what her newest album (uh, Reputation), is all about. One would need a corkboard and miles of red string to sort out the full medley of exasperation that has accompanied conversations about Taylor Swift over the past few years. In one quadrant of tacked-up evidence are Swift’s celebrity feuds, generally juicy but also exhaustively long-running. In another, you’d find everything about Swift’s personal life that alternately grates and thrills (depending on your preferences). Move over a little from there...

    A professor at Occidental College who is well-known for calling for the “abolition” of college fraternities recently noted that “black fraternities” should be an exception. Lisa Wade, a sociology professor at Occidental College, argued in May that fraternities should be abolished because they “hoard power” for “wealthy white men,” and because of the dangerous party culture they promote.

    The ACLU and Taylor Swift are squaring off after the singer tried to get an article detailing how white supremacy movements have embraced her lyrics and music videos, and how her silence has exacerbated the matter, pulled from a website. On Monday, the ACLU sent a letter to Swift's legal team arguing that an article posted by PopFront that links the star to the white supremacy movement should not be taken down -- as Swift has requested -- because the writer has the right to free speech.

    Rarely is the question asked: Is New York ready for a white male political leader? But with a white man widely expected to be re-elected as mayor (Bill de Blasio), a white man as governor (Andrew M. Cuomo), a white man as attorney general (Eric T. Schneiderman), and white men as city and state comptroller (Scott M. Stringer and Thomas P. DiNapoli), race has emerged as a flash point in the elbows-out battle to lead the City Council for the next four years. The speakership contest, for arguably the second most powerful elected post in city government, has raged behind...

    The Democratic Party has learned to stop worrying and love “big government” liberalism. The party’s top presidential prospects are advertising their ardor for socialized medicine, free public college, universal child care and paid family leave. Even the party’s moderate senators are now pushing for the same kind of public health insurance option that their centrist predecessors killed in the early Obama years. And the party’s 2018 platform — the consensus agenda that ostensibly unites all Democrats, from Joe Manchin of West Virginia to Bernie Sanders — calls for vigorous antitrust enforcement to prevent mega-corporations from rigging the economy against working...

    Lido Pimienta: I started asking men specifically to go to the back of the room because in my 15+ years of attending shows, both on stage and in the audience, men make it unsafe for me to be in such spaces. From the audience’s point of view, [men] for the most part will not think twice before they put themselves right in front of you. I am a short woman, so I always have to show up very early to be able to enjoy the music, to see the acts... From the stage point of view, I noticed how most...

    Market doomsayer Marc "Dr. Doom" Faber has launched a racially charged diatribe in his latest newsletter, alleging that the U.S. is great primarily because it is ruled by white people. The eccentric Gloom, Boom & Doom report author, who often speaks on CNBC and other financial media, generally forecasting some type of market downturn, focused his latest comments on the racial conflicts happening around the country. (A CNBC spokesperson said it will not book him in the future.) "And thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks. Otherwise, the US would look like Zimbabwe, which it might look...

    In place of academic excellence for all, the district’s primary mission is now to ensure that students think correctly on social and political issues — most importantly, on race and “white privilege.” District leaders enshrined this new mission in EPS’s “All for All” strategic plan, adopted in 2013. The plan mandates that, going forward, the EPS must view “all teaching and learning experiences” through the “lens of racial equity.” If “equity” meant “treating kids equally,” all thinking Minnesotans would support it. In this context, however, it’s code for racial identity politics — a simplistic blaming of “white privilege” for the...

    Pop Culture, Commercials, and White Guys by Dystopic | Oct 14, 2017 | Culture War, SJWs | 12 comments It isn’t difficult to find people complaining about how “people of color” are treated in America today. Turn on the TV, and you’ll see highly-paid NFL players lamenting this. White liberals are constantly bashing “whiteness”, and attending lectures and classes wherein white people are variously termed devils, demons, oppressors, or some other thing. It is the same for men in general, as opposed to women. Whites, and white men in particular, are generally seen as squares. They can’t dance, can’t sing,...

    The left hates America – its history, its values, its customs, its success, its people. On Friday the far left Washington Post declared patriotism and love of country is racist. That’s how much the left and Democrat Party hates America.   At least they’re open about it now. The Washington Post reported: To Many Americans, being patriotic means being white. It’s definitely a new low for the American left. They are comfortable and open today with their hatred of America. And by definition, if you love your country and happen to be black, Asian or Hispanic, you’re a traitor...

Screenshots of the ad went viral on social media after makeup artist and model Naomi Leann Blake posted them to her Facebook page on Friday.
