  • Was I Right to Call the Cops on a Black Man Breaking Into a Car?

    05/10/2019 5:56:02 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 118 replies
    Recently, I witnessed a young black male cut across my yard, duck between my neighbors’ two cars and try the doors of both, before “breaking” into the unlocked one. I opened my back door and yelled, “I see you getting into that car!” He took off running. I called the police and then posted to the (admittedly sometimes racially charged) Nextdoor app, in the hopes that my neighbors would check the locks on their cars and homes. Break-ins are fairly common in my neighborhood, and this isn’t the first time that I’ve witnessed what appeared to be a theft and...

    Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni) attempts to procure a nuclear disarmament deal between India and Pakistan. Before the talks even begin, the India Prime Minister and Foreign Minister are apprehensive over working with the United States as “a country that has repeatedly subjected us to barbaric terrorist attacks and endless wars” with a “despicable record on human rights and racism.” Elizabeth and her CIA Special Activities Division head, husband Henry (Tim Daly), for their part, don’t disagree with that description.

    I recently listened to a lecture by a pastor, Tim Keller from New York, who argued that white people need to apologize to blacks for the sin of their fathers’ racism...... Keller says, “I mean I still hear it, though especially years ago when I lived in the South. I heard white people say, ‘Yeah, it’s a shame what slavery did, but I never owned any slaves so why in the world does anybody think that I as a white person now had any responsibility to that community over there at all? I didn’t own slaves.’ But here is Daniel...

    Police arrested a second suspect Thursday in a fatal shooting outside a north Atlanta country club as new details emerged about the leniency granted in an earlier case to the 17-year-old accused gunman. Jayden Myrick, who was arrested in the shooting last month, was “the big test case” for reforming juvenile offenders outside of adult prison, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Doris Downs told the teenager during a hearing on March 12, according to a transcript made public Thursday. Downs overruled a prosecutor’s insistence that Myrick was dangerous and a request to revoke his probation for an armed robbery he...

    A brewing company offered an apology after wanting to name its beer “White Guilt.” Lakeville Brew Crew, a yet to be opened Indiana-based brewery, apologized after planning on naming its beers controversial names such as “White Guilt,” “Flint Michigan Tap Water” and “Black Beer Matters,” The Associated Press reported Thursday. The brewery’s owners Jon Duncan and Rodney Chlebek said that after receiving an overwhelmingly negative reaction to the names, they “wiped clean” the list, according to the South Bend Tribune. […] The brewery’s owners claimed that they originally chose such polarizing names to bring attention to the Flint water crisis...

    Students will pair students of different political persuasions for lunch or coffee dates for a University of Virginia student initiative announced Friday. . . . While students split on whether the school should facilitate compulsory white supremacy training, UVA’s student council unanimously endorsed a list of demands including a call for the school to institute a black student quota and install a plaque on a statue of Thomas Jefferson detailing the monument’s history as “an emblem of white supremacy.”

    Loyola University-Chicago is expanding a controversial program that trains white students to become “anti-racist, anti-supremacist White allies.” While the school has offered the Ramblers Analyzing Whiteness (R.A.W.) program in the past, the number of recruits will nearly double this year, according to Loyola, which hopes to recruit at least 25 participants, more than double the 12 students who participated in 2016.

The sign was draped over the top middle section of the Green Monster and had a black background with white letters.

    Before analyzing Kid Rock as a cultural phenomenon, we first have to spend some time with the Frankfurt School, a group of European academics who rose to prominence in the mid 20th century. No, seriously. The word "dialectic" gets thrown around enough to warrant some clarification. Now used primarily as a pseudo-intellectual shibboleth to refer to social changes, the philosophical roots of the modern concept of dialectic are surprisingly important. Dialectic describes Hegel's idea that as society moves toward its perfected state, it must resolve internal contradictions – issues that cause social unrest and then lead to social change. According...

    An assistant professor at the University of Iowa who pledged to expose her students to “their own white ignorance” in a “peer-reviewed academic journal” was stunned and appalled that she was, well, criticized for it. Jodi Linley, a white education instructor, wrote that her goal was to make her “mostly white” graduate students keenly aware of their “white privilege” and use her classroom to “deconstruct whiteness.” If she did otherwise, she explained, it would make her “complicit” in perpetrating white supremacy. “For white students,” she wrote, “talking about race with an all-white group of peers … [reveals] their own white...

    MSNBC host Katy Tur asked on Wednesday whether Fox News Channel has a "responsibility" to "vary" its primetime lineup by replacing former FNC host Bill O'Reilly with someone who is not a "white man." "They had three white men: Bill O'Reilly, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity in their primetime lineup," Tur said.

    Loyola University Chicago offers a campus club “for self-identified White students” to admit their own racist feelings and to complain about the racism they perceive around themselves. The segregated “affinity group,” called Ramblers Analyzing Whiteness, allows all students “who self-identify as White” to talk about their “anger and confusion about institutional racism” and to confess “guilt and hope about internalized racism.” Members can also “examine what it means to be White” and “begin the journey of operating in solidarity with others and their privilege.”

    Scholar Claire Lockard argues in a new work that white people who acknowledge their privilege are less likely to engage in actual anti-racism efforts. In her work, “Unhappy Confessions: The Temptation of Admitting to White Privilege,” recent Emory graduate and Elon University scholar Claire Lockard argues that acknowledgments of white privilege or racism are “pleasurable to enact but ultimately reinforce white people’s feelings of goodness and allow them to avoid addressing this racism.” In the abstract for her work, Lockard explains how an admission of white privilege could lead to a complacency that leads individuals away from anti-racist activism.

    With the inauguration of Donald Trump just days away, droves of his supporters are preparing to meet in Washington D.C. to welcome the new President. But there are also darker forces assembling; a gathering of at least 75 anarchist, socialist and communist groups preparing for an event called #DisruptJ20 that has officially called for violent Black Bloc protesters to gather at 10:00 am on Friday, January 20th in Washington D.C. at the Logan Circle and the Francis Scott Key Memorial. The group’s call-to-arms is blunt: Wear all black | January 20th, 10 AM | Logan Circle, DC We are calling...

    2 million migrants who arrived in Germany -only 34,000 found work. Angela Merkel went to lay white roses at the scene of the Christmas market attack in Berlin. Thousands of Germans did the same. Many brought candles and cried. But anger and the will to combat the threat remained largely absent. Nothing better describes the present state of Germany than the sad fate of Maria Landenburger, a refugee relief organization worker, ...who welcomed migrants...[Maria] was raped and murdered by [a refugee she was helping]. Her family asked anyone who wanted to pay tribute to their daughter to give money to...

    [Snip] White America has prided itself as a nation based on acquired citizenship, freedom of religion and the rule of law, and formed by immigration. But that ideology was dominant two generations ago. The defining distinction, from the beginning, has been race and color, not religion or nationality. What post-Trump white America has expressed by endorsing Trump's campaign to "Make America Great Again" is not merely anger against elites in general but targeted resentment against the recent history of success by Americans of color. The racism in this year's election was not about an older stereotype of the Willie Horton-type,...

    A spokeswoman for Washington, D.C.’s public school system tweeted Tuesday about her desire to “abolish” all white men. The declaration by Hilary Tone, who works a day job as communications director for D.C. Public Schools, was prompted by president-elect Donald Trump’s selection of Rick Perry to lead the Department of Energy. Pointing towards Perry’s stated desire to abolish the department he’s been tapped to lead, Tone quipped that she would personally like to lead (and presumably also eliminate) the “Department of White Men.”

    Prop. 58 effectively would repeal the 1998 Proposition 227 that required English language learners in California schools be taught largely in English only Language Immersion programs are the optimal approach to learn a language. This is never more evident than in the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA, a Department of Defense educational and research institution which provides linguistic and cultural instruction. They use classroom teaching as well as immersion techniques for maximum results. Immersion is also the best way to assimilate immigrants into any culture. California Proposition 58, “Non-English Languages Allowed in Public Education” would put an end to...

    The City of Seattle is sponsoring two taxpayer-funded workshops on “white fragility” as part of a series of “racial equity” workshops put on by the city’s Office of Arts and Culture throughout August and September. The two “white fragility” workshops will take place on August 17 and September 7, running four hours each. The workshops will focus on “the specific way that racism manifests through White Fragility.” (The city website defines “white fragility” as “the inability for white people to tolerate racial stress.”) Each workshop also “provides the perspectives and skills needed for white people to have more constructive cross-racial...
