Canada’s State Funded Broadcaster CBC Decides to Highlight BLM Terrorist Protests Rather Than Lockdown Protests
Cornell University is defending a new rock-climbing class offered to minority groups.
Among the Ivy League school’s Outdoor Education offerings for the spring 2021 semester was a course called “BIPOC Rock Climbing.” The course description, according to the Cornell Daily Sun, specified that the class was “for people who identify as Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, or other people of color.”
That prompted an uproar from across the internet. The university was accused of violating federal and state civil rights law, while one Reddit user decried what they described as a “horrifically and monstrously racist practice that has no place in the modern world” and “literally evil.”
Earlier this year, the course description for “BIPOC Rock Climbing” was changed to read: “This class is designed to enable Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, or other people of color underrepresented in the sport of rock climbing to learn the sport and to feel included and supported. The class is open to all Cornell students interested in learning rock climbing with this special focus.”
University spokesperson John Carberry told the Daily Sun on Monday that while such classes “may include a focus on students with specific identities, they are not restricted to only those students.
“Cornell offers many programs that support interests and perspectives of different parts of our community,” he added. “We encourage any student who is interested to take advantage of the unique opportunities across campus to learn from and with the many diverse perspectives and voices across campus.”
With the semester winding down, students and instructors defended the course’s emphasis on non-white students. One student, freshman Thomas Gambra, told the Daily Sun that “[h]earing people complain about this class, saying it’s taking away from our white peers is laughable and frustrating.”
Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, who’s about as far left as far left goes, told “60 Minutes” host Scott Pelley that George Floyd bears zero responsibility for his own death — that it’s all due to police brutality, police racism, police officer Derek Chauvin’s brutal, racist acts.
This is a lie about Blacks and police that’s being replicated around the nation by leftists who want to destroy America.
Floyd may not be 100% responsible for his own death. Chauvin and his nine minutes of bearing down on Floyd’s neck certainly played into the final moments of life — and in fact, a jury just found the former officer guilty of unintentional second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
But had Floyd simply done what police requested-slash-ordered, he’d most likely be alive today. And that’s a common denominator in many of the police officer interactions with Blacks that turn fatal that is always, always, always pushed aside by the press, by the leftist politicians, by the Black Lives Matter movement: When police are trying to do their jobs, it’s best not to resist.
Pelley to Ellison: Does Floyd bear any responsibility for the May 2020 events that led to his death?
Ellison to Pelley: “No, he doesn’t,” The Hill reported.
Pelley to Ellison: “If he’d gotten in the car, he’d be alive today.”
Ellison to Pelley: Floyd was just having a bad day and police, who are “trained to deal with people who are having problems,” ought to have recognized this and reacted accordingly.
“[If police can] use deadly force on people who are just having a bad day,” Ellison said, “then we’re going to be in a very, very lethal situation.”
Having a bad day?
Democrats have actually suggested sending out the psychologists in place of police. But that’s not a solution to criminal behavior. That’s an enabler.
Leftists are trying to create division in America and pit populations against each other, to cause the chaos to make the Constitution appear ineffective to justify the creation of a new form of government, a socialist form of government, a total top-down form of governance that empowers the collectivists while killing individualism. Leftists are actually trying to create race wars.
But the line that police awaken each day with the intent to hunt and kill young black males is ridiculous enough that even the most cursory glance at facts and stats underscores its lunacy.
Statista reports that in 2017, there were 223 Blacks shot and killed by police; in 2018, it was 209; in 2019, it was 235; in 2020, it was 241; and in 2021, so far, 30.
The same outlet reports that in 2017, there were 457 Whites shot and killed by police; in 2018, it was 399; in 2019, it was 370; in 2020, it was 457; and in 2021, so far, 50.
The left rebuts these facts with percentages — by arguing that Blacks only account for just over 13% of the nation’s total population, while Whites, about 73%.
But consider this: Statista also found that in 2017, police shot and killed 179 Hispanics or Latinos; in 2018, it was 148; in 2019, it was 158; in 2020, it was 169; and in 2021, so far, 20.
Hispanics and Latinos make up almost 17% of America’s population.
How come we’re not talking about police targeting to kill Hispanics?
Where’s the Hispanics Lives Matter movement, with the accompanying Democratic Party blind eye support of brick-throwing good times in the streets, masked as First Amendment peaceful protests?
It’s a lie. It’s all deception. The whole police-murder-Blacks message from the left is lie and deception.
If the Black male Michael Brown in 2014 had not struggled with the White officer, Darren Wilson, then the Black male Michael Brown would probably be alive today. If the Black male Rayshard Brooks had not struggled with officers after they awakened him at the Wendy’s drive-through line in Atlanta, then the Black male Rayshard Brooks would probably be alive today. If the Black male Daniel Prude had not struggled with officers after they apprehended him running naked through the streets of Rochester, then the Black male Daniel Prude would probably be alive today.
This list goes on. See the theme?
Schools Chancellor Meisha Ross-Porter called for an end to the specialized high school entrance exam Thursday while fuming about new admissions data that showed Asians dominating the controversial test once again.
Citing the minimal number of offers to black and Hispanic students, Ross-Porter called the current single-test entry format “unacceptable.”
Asians comprised 53.7 percent of those admitted, whites 27.9, Hispanics 5.4, and African Americans 3.6.
“I know from my 21 years as an educator that far more students could thrive in our Specialized High Schools, if only given the chance,” she said in a statement accompanying the results. “Instead, the continued use of the Specialized High School Admissions Test will produce the same unacceptable results over and over again, and it’s far past the time for our students to be fairly represented in these schools.”
But backers of the existing format — especially those representing Asian city groups — blasted Ross-Porter’s characterization.
“What is unacceptable is the targeting of one particular group,” said activist Wai Wah Chin. “Especially with what we see happening on the streets of this city. What is unacceptable is telling Asians that they don’t belong in these schools despite their hard work.”
Critics of the exam call it a narrow measure of student potential and argue that additional metrics should be introduced into the admissions process.
While 70 percent of all city students are black and Hispanic, they only accounted for 9.4 percent of specialized high school acceptances for next year.
Kaliris Salas-Ramirez of Community Education Council 4 said the exam should be scrapped, asserting that it promoted an outdated reliance on standardized tests to measure talent.
The CBC invited an author who wrote about “detonating” white people, while “the exits are locked and the air vents [are] filled with gas” to be interviewed on their flagship arts program.
Ben Philippe, a fragile black man with an inferiority complex appeared on Q where he discussed his newest book and racial issues in North America, talked about documenting the experience of being the token Black friend in his new collection of essays, Sure, I’ll Be Your Black Friend: Notes from the Other Side of the Fist Bump.
NBC “news” race baiting propaganda edits out 911 call and don’t show viewers the knife:
Huffpost’s Domonique Mosbergen, society subverting, race baiting piece of garbage outs police officer who saved black girls life, making sure to mention that he was white.
Entitled BLM is allowed to call for subversion of society by looting and destroying peaceful taxpaying citizens cities and livelihoods without recourse. Are they not a terrorist organization? Imagine if a Trump supporter called for looting and terrorizing of their city…
Blacks already commit the most crime, receive 3x more welfare than whites, and yet they still want more… they still want to keep destroying civilized society because nothing is ever enough, thanks to race baiting media telling them that they are oppressed.
Target will spend more than $2 billion at Black-owned businesses by 2025 as part of its effort to advance racial equity. That’s a significant increase in overall spending on Black-owned businesses, according to Target, though the retailer declined to be more specific Wednesday.
The Minneapolis-based company said it will add a broad spectrum of products from more than 500 Black-owned businesses and will increase its spending at more Black-owned vendors for the 1,900-store chain, from marketing to construction.
It will also introduce new resources, like a dedicated team to help Black-owned suppliers scale their businesses to work with mass retail chains. The Forward Founders program builds off Target’s accelerator program that helps entrepreneurs.
The point I’ve made through all of those experiences is that anti-Asian racism has the same source as anti-Black racism: white supremacy. So when a Black person attacks an Asian person, the encounter is fueled perhaps by racism, but very specifically by white supremacy. White supremacy does not require a white person to perpetuate it.
White supremacy is an ideology, a pattern of values and beliefs that are ingrained in nearly every system and institution in the U.S. It is a belief that to be white is to be human and invested with inalienable universal rights and that to be not-white means you are less than human – a disposable object for others to abuse and misuse
White supremacy as the root of racism can be seen in the Latino man in Texas stabbing a Burmese family in March 2020, claiming he did so because they were Chinese and bringing the coronavirus into the U.S. Though the suspect may have mental health problems, his belief that this family posed a threat is driven by the white supremacist ideas of Chinese people being to blame for COVID-19.
Two doctors in Boston have called for the allocation of medical resources to be done on the basis of race. Writing in the the Boston Review, they call for the implementation of standards that would show racial preference to patients. This would be in addition to federal reparations.
I don’t have much to add here today that hasn’t already been said.
Whiteness is a public health crisis. It shortens life expectancies, it pollutes air, it constricts equilibrium, it devastates forests, it melts ice caps, it sparks (and funds) wars, it flattens dialects, it infests consciousnesses, and it kills people—white people and people who are not white, my mom included. There will be people who die, in 2050, because of white supremacy-induced decisions from 1850.
A line can and should be drawn from the actions of the white supremacist who walked into three Atlanta-area massage parlors yesterday, and allegedly killed eight people—six of whom were of Asian descent—to the relentless anti-Asian rhetoric pollinating national discourse over the past year. The former president, and the party of the former president, can and should be blamed for this and the sudden increase of racist violence against Asian Americans. The line doesn’t stop there, though. It extends back 400 years and has tentacles clawing everywhere white supremacy exists here, in America, which is everywhere.
There’s a line connecting this act of terror to the 11 people killed at the Tree of Life synagogue in 2018, and the nine people killed at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in 2015, of course. But also to gentrification, to red-lining, to racial profiling, to gerrymandering, to voter oppression, to mass incarceration, to the war on drugs, to the subprime mortgage crisis, to the vast disparities in both COVID deaths and who receives COVID vaccinations, to how the men and women who stormed the capitol just went home and had dinner with their families afterward. While we were still processing and recovering from what we witnessed, they were already back on their couches, watching Criminal Minds.
White supremacy is a virus that, like other viruses, will not die until there are no bodies left for it to infect. Which means the only way to stop it is to locate it, isolate it, extract it, and kill it. I guess a vaccine could work, too. But we’ve had 400 years to develop one, so I won’t hold my breath.
Ah yes, whites are a problem and not blacks who commit HALF of all violent crime, commit 3x more rapes than whites, comprise most of mass shooters while making up just 13% of the population. Just try to imagine an article titled “Blackness is a pandemic”… you’d be deplatformed, fired and it would be a non stop news story for weeks.
I am a liberal, White, upper-middle-class parent, and we live in a mixed-income, racially integrated urban neighborhood. When it came time to enroll our daughter in high school, we selected a school that was majority Black because it was close by, and we rejected the notion of getting caught up in which magnet school was most prestigious. Our daughter had a horrible time there—she was harassed so much that we had to pull her out, and other non-Black students there were victimized because of their race. I am struggling to make sense of the experience. I think she’s managed it well and hasn’t let it affect her general views on race, and I believe I’m doing the same, but mostly I am just so angry that our daughter had to endure this, and I feel guilty that I put her in this position. I also feel caught between friends who seem to want to say, “I told you so,” and those who seem to think that saying that she was the victim of racial harassment somehow makes me seem racist since it was at the hands of Black students. Maybe I should just chalk it up to bad luck, but how can I let go of the guilt and anger and all the other awful reactions I’m having to this?
I also recognize that in an area like the one you live in—one that sounds like it is somewhere in the process of gentrification—an influx of upper-middle-class White folks can be absolutely devastating. So again, bullying, regardless of the bully’s background, is not OK, but you asked about the larger context here, and so that’s what I’ll try to unpack.
After years of being told that your community was unimportant and unworthy of resources, you get to watch it become a “hot spot,” see investment that would have never been made on your behalf. Black folks, who once had “the hood” as a place to be surrounded by their own kind after long days of having to labor for White people, now have to watch Whites become the most affluent, and seemingly most content, residents of our ghettos. If that were not traumatic enough, there is also the matter of our interpersonal interactions with our new neighbors, many of whom have called the police on us, unilaterally organized to reshape our schools, or otherwise come into our sacred places and treated us as we are so often treated by White people: poorly.
Your daughter might not have done anything deliberately to harm anyone or to invite mistreatment, but her presence disrupts something truly fragile: the feeling of safety Black kids get from being with other Black kids. Those kids see their parents struggling to afford to live in an area that is changing to better reflect people like you.
I am sorry that your daughter was one of them, and I hope you are able to help her get through this difficult time with the right attitude.
Man up and change your attitude, you evil white person.
White people moving into black area making it better = racist.
White people bullied by blacks = white peoples fault.
Blacks when they see white people = scared of them.
Blacks wanting to be amongs their own = totally ok, but not when whites want to be amlng their own.
Some low-income families of color in Oakland will soon receive $500 a month in no-strings-attached cash as part of a privately funded program, Mayor Libby Schaaf said in a Tuesday announcement.
The Oakland Resilient Families program has raised nearly $7 million dollars to help families of color with at least one minor child making less than $30,000 a year.
It’s the first program to limit participation to people of color and indigenous communities — a nod to the legacy of the Black Panther Party, which was founded in Oakland.
“Guaranteed income has been a goal of the Black Panther platform since its founding,” said Jesús Gerena, CEO of Family Independence Initiative, which is partnering with the program. “Direct investment in the community in response to systemic injustices isn’t new.”
During a Louisiana State University event discussing the “Religion of White Rage,” one professor stated that “conservatism” is a “euphemism for white supremacy.” One state lawmaker previously expressed concern over the event.
According to a statement from Louisiana State University, “Race, Religion and the Moment We’re In: The Religion of White Rage” was supposed to “shed light on the phenomenon of white rage and map out the uneasy relationship between white anxiety, religious fervor, American identity and perceived Black racial progress.”
“Religion is a source of connection and community for many Americans; however, it is also the primary motivating factor for the rise of white rage and white supremacist sentiment in the United States. The Capitol insurrection is the latest example of this,” said panelist and Louisiana State professor Stephen Finley in the statement. “In this episode, we will hone in on this relationship between White apprehension, race and religion, and their subsequent effects on communities of color and the struggle for equality.”
March 2020, blacks go crazy, police crack down, NAACP says this is “racism”
Miami police arrest statistics; 1050 arrests, 398 felonies, 102 firearms seized
As soon as the city starts clamping down, “black leaders” say this is unreasonable force. How dare the government not let blacks keep destroying the city and terrorizing peaceful civillians…
Demonstrators took to the streets of the eastern Belgian city on Saturday to protest the arrest of a black woman by police earlier this week. The march was peaceful until a group of rowdy youth joined in, and then spread through the city center, wreaking havoc.
“We are dealing with two hundred young people, ‘casseurs’, who move very quickly, in groups, and loot stores,” a police spokeswoman told AFP.
Vandals smashed store windows and “ransacked a whole McDonald’s” in their assault on city businesses, police said.
Oumou Kanoute (inset) claims she was singled out due to her race while eating in a lounge in 2018 Alamy; Boston Globe
A black student’s allegations that she was targeted for “eating while black” at a private Massachusetts college were deemed unfounded, according to an investigation of the incident.
Oumou Kanoute, then a rising sophomore at Smith College, had claimed that all she “did was be black” when a janitor called security on her when he found her in a closed lounge in July 2018.
The incident began when Kanoute went inside a cafeteria in a dormitory that was reserved for a summer camp program for young children, the outlet reported.
Since students were not supposed to use the area, a cafeteria worker Jackie Blair reminded her of that fact but then decided to drop the issue, the outlet reported.
A janitor, who was in his 60s and had poor vision, then noticed a figure in the distance eating in a closed-off lounge area of the dorm.
School guidance called for employees not to confront strangers on their own — so the janitor notified security about the person, who turned out to be Kanoute, the outlet reported.
The janitor, who reportedly later claimed he couldn’t tell the person’s gender because it was dark, told dispatchers that there’s someone “sitting there laying down in the living room.”
“I didn’t approach her or anything but he seems out of place,” he reportedly said.
A security officer then drove over and engaged in a polite conversation with the student, who recorded the encounter on video and later posted it to Facebook, the paper reported.
“It’s outrageous that some people question my being at Smith, and my existence overall as a woman of color,” Kanoute wrote on Facebook about the private, all-women school
In an effort led by Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock of Georgia, the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill that passed on Saturday includes a $5 billion provision that will forgive debts for Black, Hispanic, Indigenous, and other farmers of color, to enable reforms that will assist farmers with building generational wealth.
Last week, Warnock, Georgia’s first Black senator, praised the incorporation of the Emergency Relief for Farmers of Color Act into the COVID-19 bill.
He said that Democrats sought to “ensure equity in our recovery efforts and address longstanding injustices that have left some communities behind for far too long” and pledged that the aid “will not only help farmers of color, but will also lift up the economies of our rural communities working to recover from the economic turndown,” according to Rolling Stone.
An ODE newsletter sent last week advertises a Feb. 21 “Pathway to Math Equity Micro-Course,” which is designed for middle school teachers to make use of a toolkit for “dismantling racism in mathematics.” The event website identifies the event as a partnership between California’s San Mateo County Office of Education, The Education Trust-West and others.
Part of the toolkit includes a list of ways “white supremacy culture” allegedly “infiltrates math classrooms.” Those include “the focus is on getting the ‘right’ answer,” students being “required to ‘show their work,'” and other alleged manifestations.
“The concept of mathematics being purely objective is unequivocally false, and teaching it is even much less so,” the document for the “Equitable Math” toolkit reads. “Upholding the idea that there are always right and wrong answers perpetuate objectivity as well as fear of open conflict.”
The ODE, led by Colt Gill, confirmed the letter to Fox News. ODE Communications Director Marc Siegel also defended the “Equitable Math” educational program, saying it “helps educators learn key tools for engagement, develop strategies to improve equitable outcomes for Black, Latinx, and multilingual students, and join communities of practice.”
Google officially supports black owned businesses only – highlighting them in maps and in chrome browser. Is this not black privilege? This dispels the myth of “white privilege” or “systemic racism” if blacks get this sort of beneficial treatment.
40-year-old Amelia Doris had pursued Linda Lancaster, a woman in her sixties, out onto the street after what Judge Sally Cahill QC described as “some slight that [Doris] appeared to have taken” in a Tesco supermarket.
Lancaster was just “shopping, minding her own business” in London when she supposedly bumped the head of Doris’s son with her basket by mistake at the checkout.
Doris rounded on her, railing “you’ve met the wrong woman, you white bitch” and shoving her to the ground, according to a Court News UK report.
Doris then lurked outside the Tesco waiting for Lancaster, shouting “watch what happens when you come out” into the store.
Sure enough, and despite Lancaster’s efforts to avoid her assailant by walking around the back, Doris found her and shoulder barged her into the path of an oncoming bus. Fortunately she did not go under it, instead colliding with the moving vehicle “so that she hit her head against the front doors”, recalled John Livingston, prosecuting.
EDMONTON (CityNews) – Alberta’s Black community leaders are denouncing a photo of a man wearing a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt in Edmonton, calling it “racist.”
The photo, taken at a Walmart in Northgate, shows a man inside the store wearing a white t-shirt with the words “White Lives Matter” in big black lettering on the back.
That slogan is widely considered as the racist response to the Black Lives Matter movement.
“That is a racist sentence and phrase,” said Tiera Williams, a racial justice advocate.
The woman who posted the photo online did not respond to CityNews’ request for an interview. But in her Facebook post, she said she was shocked by what she saw.
No anti-white hatred here.
Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development and Minister responsible for Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), Marci Ien, Member of Parliament for Toronto Centre, Evan Siddall, President and CEO of CMHC, and Julia Deans, President and CEO of Habitat for Humanity Canada, announced a new investment of $40 million to create 200 home ownership opportunities across the country for Black Canadians.
Black privilege is having leaders or inventors who comprised a fraction of a fraction of the population of overwhelming majority white countries and wanting history books written about you. By that logic Africa and Asia should have history books written about white people living in their countries who accomplished great feats.
According to data presented by the district, under the old grading system, teachers fail minority students more than White students – a lot more.
During the first semester of last year, 30% of all D or F grades were given to English learners. One in four, 25%, of failing marks went to students with disabilities.
By ethnicity, 23% went to Native Americans. Another 23% of failing grades went to Hispanics. And 20% of D or F grades went to Black students.
By comparison, just 7% of failing marks went to White students.
In an effort to change that racial imbalance, the school board voted unanimously this week to make several big changes to its grading system.
Academic grades will now focus on mastery of the material, not a yearly average, which board members say penalizes students who get a slow start, or who struggle at points throughout the year.
Another big change, teachers can no longer consider non-material factors when grading. Things like turning work in on time and classroom behavior will now instead count towards a student’s citizenship grade, not their academic grade.
“I think this reflects a reality that students have described to us and it’s a change that’s a long time coming,” says Barrera.
Student School Board Member Zachary Patterson, who is also a junior at University City High School, says while some classmates expressed concerns about grade inflation, overall the feedback from his peers is positive.
“I know students all across the school district are really happy with the idea that these other accountability measures are no longer going to be defining their understanding of knowledge,” says Patterson.
After Patterson expressed concerns at this week’s meeting, the board will also review potential student disparities stemming from its zero-tolerance disciplinary policy on cheating in the coming weeks.
Nearly 106,000 students attend a San Diego Unified School District school.
The King County library in Washington State have been holding “separate but equal” training sessions for their employees, all in the name of social justice.
The consultants “begin with an anti-oppression framework” and use segregated sessions in order to root out “institutional privileges and systemic inequities embedded in the current socio-political conditions that influence and affect our institutions.”
The consultants discovered widespread “institutional racism” in the library system—and dismissed employees who reported “not experiencing or witnessing racism while working at KCLS” as likely suffering from the false consciousness of “internalized racism.” When reached by e-mail, Racial Equity Consultants said it was not authorized to comment.
Rufo told The Post Millennial that the pictures of the signs for the training sessions he posted on social media today came from a whistleblower and reminded him “…signs on (segregated) water fountains in the 1950’s.”
King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg and senior staff have recently required employees to sign a “equity and social justice” pledge and assigned “continued training for white employees,” who must “do the work” to “learn the true history of racism in our country.” Rufo said that every time he writes an article or posts a picture from the sessions, more whistleblowers come forward.
Washington State government officials, especially those in King County and Seattle have been infusing “critical race theory” into their policies and trainings including in public schools.
Earlier this year, The Post Millennial exposed critical race theory practices and curriculum being practiced and taught in Seattle schools. Seattle public schools released a plan to bring students back into the classroom from remote learning, but differentiated the priorities for who should come back first based on many factors involving a measure of those who are most marginalized. Per the guidelines, “students furthest from educational justice,” and “students of color” would be given priority on returning to school for face-to-face instruction.
Documents from the Superintendent of Public Instruction Chris Rehkdahl outlined the phased approach prioritizing grade level, such as “serve all elementary students first,” or “serve students furthest from educational justice first, including students with disabilities, English learners, students experiencing homelessness, students experiencing poverty, students of color, and other student groups.”
This past summer, Seattle Public Schools Superintendent Denise Juneau sent an email to students only, saying: “This country has a long history of oppressing people of color, especially Black and African American people. The last couple weeks we have seen demonstrations of systematic racism on full display across our country to the point of murder of Black people. I share in the horror and sadness displayed by the police systems across the country and by some officers here in our own city.”
Students in Washington as young as 11-years-old to refer to a riot as an “uprising” and rioters as “freedom fighters” and that “cops are racist.” Students were even encouraged to donate to bail-funds that have recently been tied to helping release an accused child rapist.
Over 2,000 mathematicians have signed a letter agreeing to boycott all collaboration with police, and insisting their colleagues do the same.
They are organizing a wide base of mathematicians in the hopes of cutting off police technologies at their source. The letter’s authors cite “deep concerns over the use of machine learning, AI, and facial recognition technologies to justify and perpetuate oppression.”
Tarik Aougab, an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Haverford College, was one of many mathematicians who saw the recent uprising as a push to take action against these practices. “If there is already disproportionately large amounts of time and energy being spent criminalizing Black and brown people,” Aougab explains, “the predictions the algorithm puts forth are just going to reflect that. It’s a way to perpetuate that over-criminalization.”
Black people not only face higher murder rates at the hands of police but disproportionately high arrest rates as well—twice that of their white counterparts.

The popular use of racist predictive policing technologies is unsurprising for Aougab, who traces the history of the police, which is rooted in slave patrols and private security forces hired by the rich to break up labor strikes. Their primary motivation is not to serve and protect, Aougab said, but “preserving a social order that is put forth by the will of elites to protect property. The institution has never drifted away from that basic function over its entire existence in this country.”
“At some point we all reach a breaking point, where what is right in front of our eyes becomes more obvious,” says Jayadev Athreya, a participant in the boycott and Associate Professor of Mathematics at the University of Washington. “Fundamentally, it’s a matter of justice.”
The mathematicians penned an open letter, collecting thousands of signatures for a widespread boycott. Every mathematician within the group’s network pledges to refuse any and all collaboration with police. Called out in particular was a mathematics foundation that allowed the founder of PredPol, a major predictive policing company, to host a sponsored workshop encouraging mathematicians to work with police.
JPMorgan Chase said Thursday it will extend billions in loans to Black and Latino homebuyers and small business owners in an expanded effort toward fixing what the bank calls “systemic racism” in the country’s economic system.
The New York bank said it is committing $30 billion over the next five years toward programs that include earmarking more money for getting Black and Latino families into homeownership and providing additional financing to build affordable rental housing units.
“Systemic racism is a tragic part of America’s history,” said JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon in a statement. “We can do more and do better to break down systems that have propagated racism and widespread economic inequality.”

“Tackling racial inequality” event where they discriminate against whites.
Blacks commit insane amounts of crime, ‘activists’ call to abolish police and prisons.
In reaction to the murder of two local residents, Brian Henry, founder of Palmetto Cheese and mayor of Pawleys Island, South Carolina, took to Facebook on Aug. 25:
“I am sickened by the senseless killings in Georgetown last night. 2 [sic] innocent people murdered. Not 2 thugs or people wanted on multiple warrants. 2 white people defenselessly gunned down by a black man,” Henry wrote. “So why do we stand by and allow BLM to lawlessly destroy great American cities and threaten their citizens on a daily basis … this has gone on too long. Rise up America. This BLM and Antifa movement must be treated like the terror organizations they are.”
Following Henry’s statement against Black Lives Matter, Costco removed the product from 120 of its stores. A corporate spokesperson declined to comment to TODAY. However, the Post and Courier, which broke the story, obtained a photo of a sign from Costco in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina that specified the cheese was “discontinued” and would “not be re-ordered.” Henry also confirmed to the Post and Courier that his product was in the process of being removed from shelves.
The Georgetown, South Carolina NAACP branch president Marvin Neal called for Henry’s resignation as mayor.
“When two White people were allegedly killed by a Black man in Georgetown, SC, Mayor Brian Henry of the neighboring town of Pawley’s Island Beach had the opportunity to bring citizens closer together. He instead chose to use his platform to cause further racial divide and controversy by venting his frustrations on social media,” Neal told TODAY Food.
But it’s perfectly OK to single out whites that commit crimes against blacks? It’s ok to riot and destroy cities? It’s ok to cause racial divide in this case, but not when it’s the other way around.
“I am profoundly sorry to those I offended with my post last week. My comments were hurtful and insensitive,” Henry said at the conference in a prepared statement. “I spent that past 10 days listening and learning. The conversations I’ve had with friends, our staff, the community and faith-based leaders provided me with a deeper understanding of racial inequality and the importance of diversity sensitivity, which is very much needed to heal Pawleys Island, Georgetown and our country.”
So speaking out against murder of whites by blacks, and being against an organization that has been terrorizing the US for months is now taboo. He must repent to the black masters who he has offended.
The group noted that “undergraduate students whose identities are underrepresented at the University of Minnesota, or undergraduate students whose studies focus on racial and social justice” were eligible for the scholarship.
“The broad nature of this description not only invalidates the Black experience that is linked to police brutality, but also speaks to the inability of the University to see to the needs of Black students specifically,” the group wrote.
According to the Minnesota Daily, administrators were slow to move following the group’s demands because of legal issues behind race-specific scholarships. However, the scholarship’s webpage has now been updated to include that “an additional consideration will be given to Black or African American students if they are underrepresented in the University.”
Other eligible candidates include “those with financial need and those who have been victims of police violence.”
Interim Chief of Police Robert Schroeder declared a state of emergency for the Louisville Metro Police Department on Monday. The department has also canceled all off-day and vacation requests “until further notice.” The announcement comes ahead of Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s announcement in the Breonna Taylor case.
Leftist terrorists are holding an entire city hostage, forcing businesses to close and board up because of fake news race baiting about false police shooting statistics and the lies about black people being oppressed. Leftists in charge allow this to go on.
20-09-23: Thousands march in New York
Christina M. Johnson, President of Ohio State University race baits about blacks being killed, lies about Breonna sleeping when shot.
The power of propaganda and brainwashing. Completely false post saying that the cop was only charged for the shots missed.
Officer Leath was killed in April when the guy shot through the door. They knocked, announced themselves, and he shot through the door and killed her
Because gun-crime prosecutions disproportionately impact the black community (because that’s the primary community committing gun violence in not only Washington D.C., but all of America) black prosecutors in America’s capital city are calling for the criminal justice system to be more “fair.”[32 Black federal prosecutors in Washington have a plan to make the criminal justice system more fair, WaPo.com, September 5, 2020]:
What began with a few emotional phone calls and emails quickly became a more organized effort of heart-wrenching, reflective Web meetings and detailed policy discussions.
In the end, 32 Black federal prosecutors in Washington signed a 10-page memo to acting U.S. attorney Michael Sherwin outlining changes they say will help ensure that prosecutors make the fairest decisions, void of nonlegal influences and biases
They called for implicit bias training for prosecutors and the end of a strategy for gun-crime prosecutions they said disproportionately targets Black communities. They also called for a new focus on alternatives to incarceration.
This is black privilege. Being allowed to murder thousands of people, and have the government try to excuse, downplay and give you leniency.
The editorial board for New York University’s student newspaper Washington Square News penned an editorial defending a student-led push to provide Black student-only housing.
“NYU has not agreed to provide housing only designed for students of one race, contrary to the claims made in several articles,” the editorial pointed out. “Instead, NYU has moved to implement a themed engagement community celebrating Black culture in residence halls. Themed engagement communities are a longstanding tradition in NYU dorms where students can apply to live on a floor centered around a common interest or theme.”
“Calling themed engagement communities ‘segregation’ — a term heavily associated with the creation of white-only spaces under Jim Crow laws — overlooks the oppression Black individuals suffered under legitimate segregation and the institutional racism that persists today,” the editorial continued.
It further argued that Black students need separate housing since “White people have never experienced anything close to systemic racism.”
The writers acknowledged that the Irish have faced discrimination in the past, but unlike Black people, they were able to get ahead socioeconomically “by oppressing Black people.” According to the writers, anyone who is accusing NYU of segregation is ignoring ongoing “institutional racism” that causes “Black students to need a supportive space in the first place.”
A Nebraska bar owner that killed a rioter has been charged with “terrorism” and “manslaughter” by a District Attorney who initially admitted it was blatant self defense.
The DA has also admitted that they were “pressured” by local activists and politicians to bring the charges.
On May 30, the 38-year-old bar owner confronted a group of rioters outside one of the bars he owns in Omaha and was knocked to the ground.
“From there, he fired two warning shots and tried to get to his feet, prosecutors said. As he did, Gardner got into a fight with one man, James Scurlock, 22. The two scuffled before Gardner fired a shot that killed him,”
The incident prompted a wave of further “protests,” particularly after Donald Kleine, the Douglas County attorney, determined that Gardner had acted in self-defense and declined to bring charges.
“A week later, Kleine said in a statement that after hearing from local residents and elected officials he would welcome an outside review ‘in this rare instance.’ He added, ‘I made a decision and I would not change that decision based on everything I know today,’” the Yahoo report explains.
Douglas County District Court Judge Shelly Stratman then appointed a special council, Fredrick Franklin, an assistant U.S. attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Omaha, to handle the case, though they said they expected the same outcome.
Instead, Franklin bowed to pressure and dug up evidence and came up with charges.
“The manslaughter charge, he said, is related to Scurlock’s death; the attempted assault charge resulted from the second warning shot Gardner fired; the charge of making terrorist threats is linked to ‘a verbal confrontation’ that Gardner had with Scurlock, Franklin continued,”
The Abundant Birth Project is the first program of its kind in the country, and will study the health impacts of providing people with targeted supplemental income during pregnancy and for six months postpartum
San Francisco, CA — Mayor London N. Breed, in partnership with Expecting Justice, today announced the launch of the Abundant Birth Project, a pilot program that provides targeted basic income to women during pregnancy and after giving birth. The pilot will provide an unconditional monthly income supplement of $1,000 to approximately 150 Black and Pacific Islander women in San Francisco for the duration of their pregnancy and for the first six months of their baby’s life, with a goal of eventually providing a supplement for up to two years post-pregnancy. Expecting Justice, a collective impact initiative led by Dr. Zea Malawa at the San Francisco Department of Public Health and supported by the Hellman Foundation and the UCSF California Preterm Birth Initiative, will study the resulting health impacts of the pilot program, which is the first of its kind in the United States.
Everything is racist – to take vaccine and to not take vaccine
Black privilege is having so much support for people of your race, compared to whites who have nothing. [image source]
The more we get lectured about White Supremacy, the even less supreme whites get, both quantitatively and qualitatively. Is this merely because whites are losing power demographically and thus it’s ever more risk-free to insult them? Or is it also that white performance is being depressed by all the libels?
For example, one of the most striking but least mentioned stories of the 21st century has been that Asian-Americans have been pulling away from whites on a variety of measures. But Asians are the great unmentionable during the Black Lives Matter mania, because they don’t fit into the fashionable narratives of White Privilege and Systemic Racism
The College Board recently released the average SAT college admission test scores for high school seniors in 2019–2020.
The results don’t fit in with the usual journalistic portrayal of whites as effortlessly dominant both in numbers and in rankings.
Whites are down to only 41 percent of high school seniors taking the SAT.
Even more strikingly, the gap between the mean scores of Asians and whites has grown from only 6 points in 2000 to 113 in 2020. The standard deviation is around 210. So the median Asian in 2020 would score about the 70th percentile among whites.
A Harvard Dean of Admissions testified Harvard sends recruitment letters to African-American, Native American and Hispanic high schoolers with mid-range SAT scores, around 1100 on math and verbal combined out of a possible 1600, CNN reported.
A Princeton study found black applicants got a 230 SAT bonus; Asians had 50 subtracted.
