A Common Language is Handy When Learning how to Skydive

Say you and your family decide to take a vacation. But instead of the normal touristy destinations, you place your brain in a box and go to Russia, or Pakistan or some other place that isn’t Americanized, or at least not necessarily accommodating of Americans.

You arrive, and right of the bat you realize this is a mistake. You know where you need to get to, but no one speaks English and none of the signage is recognizable.

Then, as luck would have it, something happens – some sort of disaster – an Earthquake or something. And there you are with your family in tow all looking at you for guidance. People are running hither and yon. Police are yelling out instructions, but you can’t understand a word. Pardon the vernacular, but you’re pretty much screwed.

Now imagine something very similar here in the United States. read more

College Diversity Scams are All About the Money

Want to really understand College diversity programs? Were they created to combat the scourge of sexist, racism and homophobia?

No – not really. Instead, Heather MacDonald for Prager University says it’s much simpler. All you have to do is what you would have when trying to find the source or reason of any swindle or scam. Just follow the money.

Candace Owens Explains how to use the Black Card

Black conservative (what’s that) commentator Candace Owens took to Prager-U to explain just what the Black Card is and how it has been properly used over the decades. It is an invaluable tool used exclusively by people of color to advance the liberal agenda while enriching themselves. All the while claiming to have suffered oppression of some sort.

WND Exclusive – THANK HEAVENS FOR POLICE BODYCAMS

I must admit that I have not been a fan of police body cameras. I thought they were unnecessary. After all, we’ve gotten along without them for so long. Save for a very few cases, what purpose would they serve? Also, I thought that the footage might somehow be able to be tampered with or a situation taken out of context to taint or skew an incident.

Well, I’ve now taken a full 180-degree turn and am all for bodycams. To prove the need for such devices, allow me to cite two recent incidents involving white police officers and “people of color” claiming to be victims of these “racist” cops. read more

Video Podcast – Civility on Campus is Racist

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Two professors at the University of Northern Iowa have theorized that being civil in college classrooms is a form of racism and that such behavior reinforces “white racial power.”

The two also claim that attempting to “treat everyone the same” is a way to “erase racial identity.” They call this Caucasian dysfunction, “whiteness informed civility,” which according to the professors is also a form of racism.

The bottom line appears, at least to these two, to be that being uncivil to persons of color is racist, and being civil is also.

So what is a white college student to do? By the way – both these professors appear to be white. read more

WND Exclusive – I’m White — Through no Fault of my Own

Talk about a great gig if you can get it. Being able to quit your day job and travel around the country, getting paid good money for bashing your own race. It’s possible you don’t even have to really believe it, as long as it sounds sincere and sufficiently vitriolic.

Not many have been afforded this opportunity. The only one I am aware of is Dr. Robin DiAngelo. She has a Ph.D. in Multicultural Education and was a lecturer at her alma mater, the University of Washington in Seattle. She is also white. However, it appears she feels quite guilty about this.

Now she receives invitations to speak at colleges by organizations such as the Public Affairs Alliance for Communities of Color at the University of Texas at Austin. read more

Dove Finds Mixing Business and Race Dangerous

On April 22, 1800, Thomas Jefferson wrote a letter to William Hamilton. Within the letter was the famous quote: “I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend. During the whole of the last war, which was trying enough, I never deserted a friend because he had taken an opposite side…”

The quote referred to Jefferson’s travel to Philadelphia to take the Vice Presidential oath of office on March 4, 1797. He said that many had come by to congratulate him – but many friends and acquaintances did not, owing only to political differences.

Yet as bad as Jefferson thought it was then, it is far worse today. These days, differences in religion and political views can get one hurt or worse. And it’s not just individuals. Sports teams and businesses are finding out that it’s better to steer clear of the caustic mix of business with politics.

However some corporations are wading in, trying mostly to curry favor with the socially progressive left. They are attempting to capitalize on what is today thought to be trendy. But they are discovering how dangerous it can be from both sides of the political spectrum.

Target stores took a major hit from the right when they announced their transgender bathroom and dressing room policy. And now Unilever, the makers of Dove products, are seeing a socially-conscious ad campaign backfire big time with leftists. read more

Maxine Waters Thinks Ben Carson is a Fool

California Representative Maxine Waters once again proves what an imbecile she really is, as she once again denigrates HUD Secretary Ben Carson. Does she have any idea of where Carson came from – that he came from dirt-poor stock to rise up on his own, to become the success he is today? Evidently not.

from the Blaze:

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) continued her mockery of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson while speaking to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights Thursday.

What did she say?

“Look at Ben Carson. My God. My grandmother would call him an educated fool,” she said. read more

WND Exclusive – In Defense of History’s ‘Imperialistic’ Explorers

We on the right – I mean the real right – have been insisting that the tearing down of statues and monuments from the Civil War era would not end there. The leftist radicals would inevitably turn their wrath beyond Civil War white racists and direct their hatred to any white American slave owner. As we’ve seen and heard, this naturally extends to whites of the Revolutionary era, who are simultaneously celebrated heroes and damnable slave owners.

And then we wondered – what’s next after that? Could there possibly be a next? Well, wonder no more.

Now, normally, when wacky ideas emanate from the left, they originate in Europe, leapfrog to California and then make their way across the U.S. to negatively affect the rest of us. read more

Boston Red Sox May Fold to Racial Pressure

Although not a native New Englander, I’ve lived up here for a lot of years. I walked Yawkey Way. I’ve listened to plenty of Boston Talk Radio including when Jay Severin was local and Howie Carr. They often discussed local Boston and Massachusetts politics. Not once in my time in New England have I heard what they are describing as a major racial issue. This is new and it’s ridiculous identity politics.

from the Blaze:

The Boston Red Sox may want to change the name of Yawkey Way. You already know why.
