France Unveils Plan To Combat Radical Islam In Schools: Increase “Diversity”…

Islam-in-France

In other words, they’ve learned nothing.

(Reuters) – France announced new measures on Thursday aimed at helping schools combat radical Islam, racism and anti-Semitism in reaction to deadly Islamist attacks two weeks ago.

The moves, including more teacher training and civic and ethics education in the country’s secular curriculum, come after dozens of schools complained of pupils refusing to join a Jan. 8 nationwide minute of silence for the victims.

French symbols such as the flag and national anthem will be explicitly celebrated and one day, Dec. 9, set aside as a “Day of Secularism”. Poor pupils will receive more grants and efforts will be made to make school intakes more socially diverse.

While millions of French marched to defend freedom of expression after the killings at satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, others have described its cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad as offensive and rejected the “Je suis Charlie” (“I am Charlie”) movement of national unity.

In an unprecedented indictment by a French leader of the country’s failure to integrate large immigrant populations from North Africa and elsewhere, Prime Minister Manuel Valls said this week the aftermath of the attacks demonstrated that a form of “social and ethnic apartheid” existed in France.

Academy President Responds To Nontroversy Over “Lack of Diversity” In Academy Awards

Cheryl Boone Isaacs

Via AP:

Responding for the first time to the firestorm of criticism over the lack of diversity in this year’s Oscar nominations, film academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs says the all-white acting slate inspires her to accelerate the academy’s push to be more inclusive. She also hopes the film industry as a whole will continue to strive for greater diversity.

The first black president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences spoke out Friday night in an exclusive interview with The Associated Press about the Oscar nominations and the widespread criticism that followed.

All 20 of this year’s acting contenders are white and there are no women in the directing or writing categories. After the nominations were announced Thursday morning, the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite started trending on Twitter.

The Asian Pacific American Media Coalition issued a statement Friday saying the nominations balloting “obviously reflects a lack of diversity in Oscar voters as well as in films generally.”

Rev Al Super Upset At Lack Of Oscar “Diversity”; Sending In Race Hustling “Task Force”…

Al Sharpton

Quick, send in the race baiting police!

Via National Action Network:

January 15, 2015 (New York, NY)— “The lack of diversity in today’s Oscar nominations is appalling and while it is good that Selma was nominated for ‘Best Picture,’ it’s ironic that they nominated a story about the racial shutout around voting while there is a racial shutout around the Oscar nominations. With all of the talent in Selma and other Black movies this year, it is hard to believe that we have less diversity in the nominations today than in recent history. National Action Network (NAN) has formed a task force on the movie industry to deal with diversity as I engage in dialogue with Sony Pictures Co-Chairman Amy Pascal. The movie industry is like the Rocky Mountains, the higher you get, the whiter it gets. I have called an emergency meeting early next week in Hollywood with the task force to discuss possible action around the Academy Awards.”

Intel Partners With Radical Left-Wing Male Feminist As Part of $300 Million “Diversity Drive”…

Is there anything more pathetic than a “male feminist?”

Via Breitbart:

Microchip manufacturer Intel, which has close ties to the state of Israel, has partnered with a radical far-left feminist activist who hates Israel, has accused the state of building an “apartheid wall” and has described Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev as “evil incarnate,” Breitbart can reveal.

Intel describes its company history as “closely interwoven with the evolution of the State of Israel.” The company was founded in the United States in 1968; just six years later, it opened an office in Haifa. Intel Israel is now the country’s largest private-sector employer, with nearly 10,000 people, spread across offices in Haifa, Jerusalem, Petach Tikva, Qiryat Gat and Yakum. […]

It is odd, therefore, to discover the company sucking up to far-Left campaigners Feminist Frequency, partnering with them as part of a new $300 million “diversity drive”–and even, reportedly, giving that organisation money, given that its due diligence checks will surely have uncovered the ugly public statements from Feminist Frequency co-founder, writer and producer Jonathan McIntosh, who has expressed no small degree of outright disgust for Israel, its people and its policies in the past.

McIntosh, who describes himself as a “pop culture hacker” and “transformative storyteller,” previously achieved brief notoriety on the internet for his YouTube videos, among them “Buffy vs Edward” and “Donald Duck meets Glenn Beck.” He is the mastermind behind the Feminist Frequency “Tropes vs. Women” YouTube series and hosts his own videos on the channel, including “25 Invisible Benefits of Being Male While Gaming”.

McIntosh sits on the board of the New Media Rights group and is an advisor to Silverstring Media. But he is also a far-Left agitator who attended anti-Israel events for years, who has acquired a notorious reputation in the video games industry for his outrageous and sometimes downright wacky opinions about “toxic masculinity,” feminism, capitalism, and, in particular, Israel.

He “refused to celebrate the killing” of Osama bin Laden, writing that he would not welcome the death “of any human being regardless of how reprehensible they might have been.” Yet McIntosh later wrote, on the death of Christopher Hitchens: “He was a despicable, vile, hateful, warmongering human being. Good riddance.”

McIntosh has spoken remarkably disparagingly about Intel’s native Silicon Valley, claiming that it is “full of repugnant white dudes who believe capitalism and their personal technology idea will save the poor brown people.” His Feminist Frequency co-host Anita Sarkeesian is an equally hard-line leftist propagandist who claims: “There’s no such thing as sexism against men.”

Ferguson-Florissant School District Faces Lawsuit For Lack Of Diversity

FERGUSON HS

Not enough blacks are being elected to the school board which caused the shooting of St. Swisher. The school cultivated a culture of distrust of whites in a position of authority.

Via KFVS

One of the school districts for students from Ferguson is facing a lawsuit alleging school board elections discriminate against black residents.

The American Civil Liberties Union and the NAACP announced the suit Thursday against the Ferguson-Florissant School District. It claims the district’s at-large elections make it more difficult for blacks to be elected, even though the district serves more black families than whites.

The suit seeks elections where candidates are selected by ward or sub-district.

University of Maine Bans Christmas Decorations To “Promote Diversity”…

Diversity = Anti-white, anti-Christian, anti-conservative.

Via Campus Reform:

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas—except at the University of Maine.

UMaine faculty and staff received an email on Monday forbidding candy canes, Christmas trees, Christmas presents, Menorahs, and wreaths in public areas on campus.

“Just wanted to remind everyone that Aux Services is not to decorate any public areas with Christmas or any other religious themed decorations,” the email states. “Winter holiday decorations are fine but we need to not display any decoration that could be perceived as religious.”

“This includes xmas trees, wreaths, xmas presents, menorahs, candy canes, etc.,” the email says. “What is allowed our [sic] winter themes, snowmen, plain trees without presents underneath, decorative lights, but not on trees, snow flakes, [sic] etc.”

According to a statement from the university, UMaine’s holiday decorations decision was made to better promote diversity on campus.

“[T]he university makes every effort to ensure that all members – students, employees, alumni and the public–feel included and welcome on campus. Decorations on the UMaine campus are therefore reflective of the diversity found in our community,” UMaine said in a statement obtained by Campus Reform.

University Of Chicago Male Student Fakes Rape Threat to Advance His Diversity Petition…

bogus

Man-on-man rape, how “progressive.”

Via NRO:

A federal investigation revealed that a racist rape threat against a University of Chicago student activist was actually fake, written by the student’s friend to gain support for their cultural-sensitivity initiatives.

Freshman Derek Caquelin posted a threat against junior Vincente Perez on his own Facebook wall on November 18 — and then claimed a racist hacker must have done it.

Perez had co-written a petition earlier in November demanding that the university address cultural-sensitivity issues after he saw students wearing Mexican Halloween costumes that had offended him. The petition’s demands included “a mandatory cross-cultural competency program” and faculty “diversification.”

Caquelin’s Facebook page makes it obvious that he is an activist for the same campus initiatives and causes as Perez. In fact, he often directly shares Perez’s own posts on cultural diversity issues.

The media spoke highly of Perez when the rape threat came out.

“Perez became a victim of the very violence he was trying to prevent when a friend’s Facebook page was hacked and someone posted an explicit threat,” a local NBC affiliate gushed after the “rape threat” came out.

CBC Members Oppose Federal Recognition Of Native American Tribe For Lack Of Diversity

VA Tribes

CBC is against the construction of another Tribal casino.

Via CNS News

Several members of the Congressional Black Caucus are urging the Obama administration to withhold federal recognition of a Virginia Indian tribe because of its history of banning intermarriage with blacks.

In January, the Interior Department proposed recognizing the Pamunkey tribe in southeast Virginia, which would make members eligible for special benefits in education, housing and medical care — and allow the tribe to pursue a casino. A decision on recognition, which would be the first for a Virginia tribe, is due by March 30.

The Congressional Black Caucus members urged Interior Secretary Sally Jewell and Attorney General Eric Holder to hold off until the Justice Department investigates any discriminatory practices by the tribe. Neither department has responded to the request, made in a Sept. 23 letter, according to a spokeswoman for Mississippi Democrat Bennie Thompson, who signed the letter.[…]

Brown told the CBC that the intermarriage ban was rooted in Virginia’s culture of racism. “Racial intermixture was raised repeatedly as a rationale to divest us of our reservation and our Indian status,” he said.

Brown cited Dr. Walter Plecker, registrar of the Virginia Bureau of Vital Statistics in the first half of the 20th century, who ordered that Indians be classified as “colored” on birth and marriage certificates.

“His rationale was, of course, racial intermixture among the Indians,” Brown wrote, adding that the “antiquated and now repealed” tribal law was an attempt to protect Indian identity. “It was never an attack on, or reflective of, ill will toward African-Americans.”

Marvel Celebrates Diversity! Says Next Captain America Will Be Black…

Captain African American?

Via Vibe:

Are we in a post racial America? No and tragedies like the slayings of Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin are reminders of that fact. However, America is leaps and bounds past
the Civil Rights era and president Barack Obama is proof that we live in a time where skin color isn’t the biggest factor when it comes to who the country’s comfortable calling to leadership positions.

Given our real life social climate, the Marvel universe is proving to be progressive too. Old characters like Black Panther will be revisited in coming movies and it was recently announced that Captain America, one of Marvels more recently reprised characters, will now be portrayed in a new series by an African-American character.

Is America ready for a Black Captain America? We spoke to lead writer, Rick Remender about the new Captain America, why this was the time for the change and more in the following interview.

VIBE: Rick, thanks for talking to us man. First, can you explain to our readers the inspiration behind making the new Captain America African American and the new characters origins?

RICK Remender: There’s been a lot of Steve Rogers stories and he’s a great character. I got into Sam Wilson’s character, who readers should know from the character Anthony Mackie played in the movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the first African-American super hero from Marvel and he’s a great character. There are lots of little gems about him that most don’t know.

As for inspiration, there’s an instance in the storyline where Sam has to rescue a photographer who has a camera with lots of classified info on it. He has to choose between giving it back to her or not and she asks him ‘do you really believe in freedom of the press or only when it’s convenient?’ In that moment, he realizes he can be patriotic but doesn’t have to be such a soldier [than Steve is].

VIBE: What went into the decision to make the new Captain America a black character?

It’s too convenient to say we live in a post racial society and everything is OK. But I think things are getting better in this country. When we announced it, some teachers sent me pictures of classes with predominately black students and a lot of the kids were Captain America. One big problem in the media for a long time, was that it only reflected White people. This is representation and it’s pretty amazing beyond just telling a cool story.

Montana KKK Group To Embrace “Diversity” By Recruiting Non-Whites…

KKK

Racist Democrat Charlie Rangel would be a perfect fit.

GREAT FALLS, Mont. — One of Montana’s most well-known white supremacists is recruiting members for a new Ku Klux Klan, one which he said will be all-inclusive and shows he no longer holds supremacist views.

John Abarr claims he is a reformed man, which is why he’s started a new KKK group called the Rocky Mountain Knights. Though he won’t say exactly how many members this new KKK group has, the organization will not discriminate against people because of race, religion or sexual orientation.

“The KKK is for a strong America,” Abarr said. “White supremacy is the old Klan. This is the new Klan.”

Though he’s long been involved in white supremacy organizations growing up in Wyoming and Montana, Abarr, of Great Falls, Mont., claims his opinions have slowly evolved. Last year he met with members of the NAACP in Casper, Wyo. It has inspired him to organize a peace summit with the NAACP and other religious groups in the summer of 2015.

Celebrate Diversity! New Emoji Characters To “Reflect Human Diversity” With Brown And Black Skin Colors…

diverseemoji

Finally!

Via Business Insider:

Great news: Diverse emoji are on their way.

The Unicode Consortium sets the international standards for characters — like emoji — across different software platforms, and the latest draft of its emoji report clearly demonstrates intentions to represent characters of all skin tones.

“People all over the world want to have emoji that reflect more human diversity, especially for skin tone,” the report reads. “The Unicode emoji characters for people and body parts are meant to be generic, yet following the precedents set by the original Japanese carrier images, they are often shown with a light skin tone instead of a more generic (inhuman) appearance, such as a yellow/orange color or a silhouette.”

Unicode Version 8.0 is adding 5 symbol modifier characters that provide for a range of skin tones for human emoji,” the report reads. “These characters are based on the six tones of the Fitzpatrick scale, a recognized standard for dermatology. The exact shades may vary between implementations.”

Black Congresswoman Enters Fight Against CNN’s Alleged Lack Of Diversity

220px-Marciafudge

Hilarious that media that makes every effort to stoke the fires of division gets nailed for its approach to African American employees.

Via Daily Caller:

The brawl between CNN and a black media group just got nastier.

In a statement released early Saturday morning, Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) said the recent cuts at Time Warner are “troubling.” Specifically, though, its layoffs of African Americans in senior and executive roles at CNN, the company’s flagship news organization, that are particularly “concerning” for her.

Her statement comes on the heels of a few weeks of rough relations between CNN and the National Association of Black Journalists. Last week, NABJ condemned the practices toward black employees at CNN. This week, CNN supposedly pulled funding requested by NABJ for a jobs fair. According to Politico, CNN disputes that it has reached any final conclusions on the matter and that funding has not definitively been pulled.

Moonbat Students: Transgender Woman Can’t Be “Diversity Officer” Because She’s Now A White Man…

No surprise this is coming from the radical-liberal Wellesley College here in Mass.

Via NRO:

A student who was born female felt perfectly comfortable identifying as a man at Wellesley College — until people said he shouldn’t be class diversity officer because he is now a white male.

Timothy Boatwright was born a girl, and checked off the “female” box when applying to the Massachusetts all-women’s school, according to an article in the New York Times. But when he got there, he introduced himself as a “masculine-of-center genderqueer” person named “Timothy” (the name he picked for himself) and asked them to use male pronouns when referring to him.

And, by all accounts, Boatwright felt welcome on campus — until the day he announced that he wanted to run for the school’s office of multicultural affairs coordinator, whose job is to promote a “culture of diversity” on campus.

But some students thought that allowing Boatwright to have the position would just perpetuate patriarchy. They were so opposed, in fact, that when the other three candidates (all women of color) dropped out, they started an anonymous Facebook campaign encouraging people not to vote at all to keep him from winning the position.

On October 1, the State Department opened the annual DV random lottery to applicants from around the world. Yes, it’s completely random, like a Powerball drawing. Up to 55,000 lucky winners will snag permanent residency visas (green cards), which put them on the path to American citizenship ahead of millions of other foreigners patiently waiting to come to this country.

Mexican President Attacks Amnesty Opponents In U.S. For “Rejecting Diversity”…

He’s president of the same country that deported 93% of illegal immigrant minors.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mexico’s president spoke of the need for U.S. immigration reform on a two-day visit to immigrant-friendly California, saying those who reject diversity and inclusion will ultimately be proven wrong.

“We want to be a factor of cohesion, not division, with full respect for the sovereignty of the United States,” President Enrique Pena Nieto said Monday. “This, at the end, is about — and only about — a matter of justice for those who contribute so much to the development of the American society.”

Pena Nieto was welcomed by Gov. Jerry Brown, who played up his immigration credentials in a speech that highlighted the close cultural and historical ties they share across borders.

“It wasn’t very long ago that the governor of California was outlawing driver’s licenses for people who were undocumented from Mexico,” Brown said. “That’s not the law anymore.”
