College “Diversity Officer” May Lose Her Job After Tweeting “Kill All White Men”…

Same woman who claimed it’s “impossible” for a minority to be racist.

Via Daily Caller:

A diversity officer at a British university is back in hot water and may lose her job over tweets she made that appear to call for white men to be exterminated.

It’s the latest chapter in the saga of Bahar Mustafa, a student at Goldsmiths, University of London who works there as a welfare and diversity officer. In April, she drew attention for hosting an event about “diversifying” the school’s curriculum that banned whites and men from attending. A few weeks later, she attempted to defend herself by claiming that “I, an ethnic minority woman, cannot be racist or sexist towards white men.”

Now, students at Goldsmiths have taken action, launching a petition effort seeking to have her deprive of her post via a confidence vote. In the argument favoring a vote of no confidence, Mustafa is accused of repeatedly demeaning people from certain groups and engaging in hate speech, an approach that seems to sharply contradict her responsibility of promoting diversity.

“For example the consistent use of hash-tags such as #killallwhitemen and #misandry, and publically [sic] calling someone ‘white trash’ under the official GSU Welfare and Diversity Officer twitter account,” the argument says. “Any apologies given have been presented in a way that attempts to shift the blame and refuses to see genuine fault in her conduct, which has not changed. The response is still to attack or invalidate students who speak out.”

Girl Scouts Celebrate Diversity By Accepting Girls Who Are Really Boys: “There Isn’t One Type Of Girl”…

Screen Shot 2015-05-19 at 12.30.25 PM

Actually, there is.

Via GirlScouts.org:

Girl Scouts has valued and supported all girls since our inception in 1912. There is not one type of girl. Every girl’s sense of self, path to it, and how she is supported is unique.

The foundation of diversity that Juliette Gordon Low established runs throughout Girl Scouting to this day. Our mission to build “girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place” extends to all members, and through our program, girls develop the necessary leadership skills to advance diversity and promote tolerance.

If a girl is recognized by her family, school and community as a girl and lives culturally as a girl, Girl Scouts is an organization that can serve her in a setting that is both emotionally and physically safe. Inclusion of transgender girls is handled at a council level on a case by case basis, with the welfare and best interests of all members as a top priority.

As we face a complex and rapidly changing 21st century, our nation needs all girls to reach their full potential, which has been our focus for more than 103 years.

NC Teacher Celebrates Diversity By Reading Pro-Gay Marriage Book “King And King” To His Third Grade Class…

Shocked when people have a problem with it.

Via LA Times:

A North Carolina third-grade teacher is under fire after reading his students a children’s book about two princes who fall in love with each other.

Omar Currie, a 25-year-old teacher at Efland-Cheeks Elementary School in Efland, N.C., was criticized by angry parents after he read Linda De Haan and Stern Nijland’s “King & King” to his students, the News & Observer reports. Currie decided to teach the book after “a boy in his class who acts ‘a little feminine’ was being called a girl and the word gay was used in a derogatory way.”

About 200 community members, both supporters and opponents of the book, attended a public forum at the elementary school last Friday night. While the book won the approval of a review committee last week, Currie said the school’s principal has “instituted new policies that require teachers to notify parents of all the books they plan to read in class.”

“Here in Orange County, [N.C.], I repeatedly heard from school officials that the book might have been appropriate to read in a more progressive area without parental consent,” Currie, who is gay, said during the forum, “but in Efland we need time.”

One grandparent, Lisa Baptist, said the book is inappropriate for young students. “I’ve been called a racist. I’ve been called a bigot, and I am none of those things,” she said. “This is nothing more than bringing homosexuality into a school where it does not belong.”

Girl Scouts Celebrate Diversity! Decide To Let In “Transgender” Boys Who Are Living As Girls…

Group-of-Girl-Scouts-6-12

Who is the super genius in the Girl Scouts leadership who thinks allowing in a group that represents less than a half of one percent is their solution to boosting sagging enrollment numbers?

Via Breitbart:

The Girl Scouts of America (GSA) is the latest organization to cave to pressure from the LGBTIQA lobby, adapting its policies to extend membership to boys who identify as girls.

On the GSA website, the association states: “If the child is recognized by the family and school/community as a girl and lives culturally as a girl, then Girl Scouts is an organization that can serve her in a setting that is both emotionally and physically safe.”

Girls participating in the scouts will now be obliged to recognize transgenderism as a normal lifestyle, critics say. …

The conservative American Family Association expressed its outrage at the policy change, accusing scout leaders of “losing their moral compass.” …

“Boys in skirts, boys in make-up and boys in tents will become a part of the program. This change will put young innocent girls at risk,” the group said.

This isn’t the first time that the issue of transgender boys wanting to join the Girl Scouts has come up, though such cases are fairly uncommon. In early 2012, seven-year old Bobby Montoya, who was living as a girl, was allowed to join his local Girl Scout troop in Colorado.

…Since 2003, GSA’s enrollment has dropped by over one million girls, almost 27% of its membership, a decline that critics attribute to its “lurch to the left.”

Apparently there’s a “celebrate diversity” get out of jail free card.

Via College Fix:

Bahar Mustafa, a “welfare and diversity officer” at Goldsmiths University in the UK, reacted to accusations that she’s a racist by saying she can’t be one based on how society is set up.

Late last month, the school’s students’ union had organized a meeting about diversifying the curriculum. However, Mustafa took to social media to note that the meeting was only for “BMEs — black and minority ethnic women.”

After media in the UK and US (including The College Fix) pointed out that such an edict is, well, racially exclusionary, Mustafa upped the ante.

The Daily Caller reports:

“There have been charges laid against me that I am racist and sexist towards white men,” she said. “I, an ethnic minority woman, cannot be racist or sexist towards white men, because racism and sexism describe structures of privilege based on race and gender, and therefore women of color and minority genders cannot be racist or sexist, since we do not stand to benefit from such a system.”

“Reverse racism and sexism are not real,” she added, castigating the media for engaging in a “witch hunt and shameful character assassination.”

LGBT Diversity Enforcers Offended Over Utah Conference To Promote ‘Natural Families’…

Natural families

Wait for claims of “microaggression.”

Via Standard Examiner

With the support of the governor and pledged participation from the Mormon church, a conservative organization on Tuesday promoted its upcoming international conference in Utah as a mecca for supporters of the natural family dictated by God.

Leaders with the World Congress of Families said at a news conference in Salt Lake City that the fundamental base for good and moral societies is made up of families led by a man and a woman.

“That’s the established definition that has prevailed throughout history and across cultures,” said Janice Crouse, the conference executive director. “We’re unapologetic in our support of the natural family, but that does not mean disrespect for anybody else.”

The conference is the organization’s first worldwide conference in the U.S. Same-sex families and LGBT advocates are welcome at the event, scheduled for Oct. 27-30 in Salt Lake City, Crouse said.

But national and local LGBT advocacy groups don’t plan to attend, and they aren’t happy Utah was chosen for the conference. A group called Restore our Humanity held a news conference Tuesday on the steps of the Utah Capitol, where they said the conference will infuse discrimination and bigotry into the community.

“We do not believe in an either-or solution. We are pro-family. We are pro all families,” said Mark Lawrence of Restore our Humanity. “We are not counterfeit families. Our marriages are not counterfeit.”

The World Congress of Families is on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s list of hate groups for its anti-LGBT views. The Human Rights Campaign, which supports gay rights and gay marriage, accuses the group of being a network of extremist groups that has been working to promote anti-LGBT rhetoric and legislation abroad.

But Crouse pushed back against those criticisms, saying the organization keeps a positive tone and focuses on highlighting the benefits for children who are raised in families led by a man and woman.

Gov. Gary Herbert wasn’t in attendance at the World Congress of Families event, but he sent adviser Pamela Atkinson to show his support. Atkinson said Herbert believes the organization has made a huge contribution to educating people around the globe about the value of families.

All Hail Diversity! Openly Gay MA Attorney General Prepares For Next Civil Rights Battle: Transgender Protection…

Healy

The next generation of MLK’s, only in drag.

Via Mass Live

For Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, transgender rights today is like gay marriage a decade ago: the next big battle for equality.

“Transgender rights is the important next battleground for civil rights,” Healey, a Democrat, said in an interview with The Republican / MassLive.com. “We need to do more, and we need to do better in this state, starting with a public transgender accommodation bill.”

Healey, the nation’s first openly gay attorney general, has made gay rights a priority since taking office in January. She led 16 states and Washington, D.C., in filing a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court asking the justices to establish gay marriage nationwide. She asked Massachusetts residents to share their stories about gay marriage, for use in the Supreme Court brief. She is now setting the stage for what could be a battle with the Republican administration of Gov. Charlie Baker over a transgender public accommodations bill, which would require accommodations for transgender people in public places, like restaurants.

“It’s a priority for me, and it’s where we need to be when it comes to civil rights,” Healey said.

The public accommodations bill is the current legislative priority of gay rights groups in Massachusetts. In 2011, the Legislature passed a bill adding non-discrimination protection for transgender people in employment, housing, credit, education and similar areas. But a mention of public accommodations got stripped out during debate. The public accommodation provision drew opposition from those who dubbed the bill “the bathroom bill,” out of fear that it would require public places to allow a transgender man to use a women’s bathroom and vice versa.

A standalone transgender public accommodations bill, sponsored by Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz, D-Boston, is pending before a legislative committee. Western Massachusetts co-sponsors include Sen. Ben Downing, D-Pittsfield, Sen. Eric Lesser, D-Longmeadow, Rep. Gailanne Cariddi, D-North Adams, and Rep. Jose Tosado, D-Springfield.

Marquette Minority Students Say Lack Of Mandatory Diversity Courses Is “Discriminatory,” Demand “White Privilege” Classes…

With guest lecturer Barack Obama?

Via College Fix:

A lack of mandated diversity courses at Marquette University is an example of “discriminatory violence” so oppressive that four “students of color” blocked a busy campus intersection earlier this week in protest, prompting their arrest.

And that’s not the only example of the oppression alleged by the so-called “Ad Hoc Coalition of and for Students of Color” at Marquette, a 134-year-old Catholic Jesuit college in Milwaukee that costs undergrads $37,000 annually to attend.

The group of students is also upset over the university’s longtime seal, which includes an image of its namesake Rev. Jacques Marquette, the French-Jesuit missionary whose 17th-century travels helped map Milwaukee and the Midwest.

The seal includes a standing Marquette pointing in a canoe with an American Indian sitting and holding an oar, an image that appears to have been inspired by an old painting of the explorer. But the student coalition has decried the seal as a “biased and impartial narrative” and have marquetteInsidedemanded the image be cropped or altered.

School Faces Backlash After Planning “Covered Girl Challenge”, Having Girls Spend Day In Hijab To ‘Celebrate Diversity’

This crossed the line from student-led to school approved.

Via Biz Pac Review:

In yet another event aimed to “celebrate diversity,” an Ohio high school planned what it called “A Covered Girl Challenge” where female students were to have spent the day wearing a hijab.

Mason High School in southwest Ohio scheduled the event for April 23, but in response to a storm of protest, it fizzled out and died before it got off the ground, according to Cincinnati.com.

The idea was to give female students the option of wearing a hijab for the day, then set aside some time for discussion and reflection.

Cincinnati.com reported:
The event was sponsored by MHS’ Muslim Student Association, but an email promoting it came from MHS’ Student Activities Department. In her letter, McCarty-Stewart said that should not have happened.

The event was student-led rather than school-sponsored, she said, adding that MHS will put policies in place to ensure further communication from the school email account is limited to school-sponsored events.

UCLA To Mandate Undergraduates Take Course On “Diversity”…

USC Trojans v UCLA Bruins

Blatant liberal brainwashing.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The University of California, Los Angeles faculty has approved a new policy that requires most future undergraduates to take a course on diversity.

The university announced late Friday that the faculty voted for the requirement by a large margin, ending an effort that began two decades ago and was defeated three times before.

UCLA Chancellor Gene Block says in a statement that he’s pleased with the outcome because he thinks the course will help prepare students to live and work in a multicultural society.

Opponents have said students were overburdened with other requirements and that the budget-strapped university couldn’t afford extra classes.
The Los Angeles Times reports most other UC campuses already require diversity courses.

Huge Diversity News! Obama Makes White House Bathrooms “Gender Neutral”…

What happens when ‘gender neutral’ becomes un-pc?

Via Politico:

President Barack Obama’s staff and visitors now have the option of using a gender-neutral restroom, a White House spokesman said Wednesday — the latest in a series of symbolic steps the Obama administration has taken to work the priorities of the LGBT community into its broader themes of inclusiveness and tolerance.

The newly designated restroom is an example of how the administration has been advancing the discussion by raising the profile of transgender issues, an area of debate that is especially hotly contested right now. The restroom will be located in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, where much of the White House staff works.

“An all-gender restroom is also available in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, which provides guests and staff an additional option,” said White House spokesman Jeff Tiller.

It’s aollow-up on Obama’s executive order, which went into effect Wednesday, banning discrimination against gay and transgender employees of companies that contract with the federal government.

“The White House allows staff and guests to use restrooms consistent with their gender identity, which is in keeping with the administration’s existing legal guidance on this issue and consistent with what is required by the executive order that took effect today for federal contractors,” Tiller also noted

Army Diversity Training Session Features Slides To Teach Soldiers About “White Privilege”…

Shorter slide: White soldiers should hate themselves for being white and minority soldiers are “victims” of a white supremacist society.

Via USA Today:

Army officials are investigating a diversity training briefing at Fort Gordon, Ga., in which a slide about “white privilege” was inappropriately shown to soldiers, according to an Army spokeswoman

The Equal Opportunity briefing took place Thursday for about 400 soldiers of the 67th Signal Battalion, Capt. Lindsay Roman, an Army spokeswoman, said Friday. The slide titled “The Luxury of Obliviousness” has bullet-point items about “white privilege.”

One item reads, “Race privilege gives whites little reason to pay a lot of attention to African Americans or to how white privilege affects them. ‘To be white in America means not having to think about it.’ ”

An image of the slide appeared later Thursday on a Facebook page and generated a torrent of negative comments about political correctness run amok.

The presentation was not authorized, nor was it part of the standard slides shown to soldiers, Roman said.

All Hail Diversity: Beltway Commandos Win, Army Ranger School Will Have First Female Students…

Lowering of the standards to make the latest social experiment a success.

Via Stars and Stripes

The first-ever version of the elite Army Ranger School to include female students is set to begin April 20 with at least 12 women participating, following the recent completion of a required prerequisite course by six more female soldiers.

The latest wave of women passed the 16-day Ranger Training and Assessment Course (RTAC) on March 19, doubling the amount approved to attend, Army officials said. The assessment course resembles aspects of the grueling 62-day Ranger School, which includes phases in the jungle, mountains and swamp and is considered among the toughest courses in combat in the world.

Top Army officials opened the Ranger School course beginning April 20 to women on a one-time basis as the Defense Department grapples with what jobs should be opened to women for the first time as part of a greater integration of the sexes in the military. The women who pass will not be allowed to become elite members of the Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment, which remains closed to female soldiers. But they will be considered trail blazers by many and allowed to wear the service’s prestigious Ranger tab.

The latest assessment course included 34 women, of which six (17.6 percent) passed, and 85 men, of which 25 (29.4 percent) finished. It’s the third preparatory RTAC class since the Army announced it was integrating the Ranger School course later this month. One more RTAC course will be held beginning Friday, with those who pass joining those who made it through the previous three RTAC at Ranger School.

Historically, more than half of the soldiers who complete the RTAC course go on to successfully complete Ranger School, Army officials said.

There’s a fair amount of variation in how women — and men, for that matter — have fared in the recent RTAC courses. In the frigid version that ran from February 6 to Feb. 21, one of 17 women and 35 of 83 men passed. The first RTAC with women concluded January 3 with five of 26 women and 53 of 96 men completing it, Army officials said..

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

Via WWMT:

A school bulletin board highlighting transgender equality is sparking controversy in Marshall.

The Gay Straight Alliance recently decorated the school’s bulletin board to spread a message of acceptance for their transgender classmates.

When that was taken down, some students say their right to free speech was silenced, but the district says that’s not the case.

It was meant to promote inclusion and acceptance, but instead, the board is pinning some parents against students.

“This was surrounding a Facebook incident surrounding a mother that was very upset,” said Kate Samra, the President of the Gay Straight Alliance. “She thought it was inappropriate for the school setting and that it didn’t exhibit Christian values.”

Samra says two weeks ago, the group put up the Transgender Day of Transparency board, in honor of Transgender Visibility Day, March 31.

The board was taken down on Monday.

“I met with the principal of my school today and he said he felt like the situation needed to be diffused, so that’s why he did take the board down,” Samra said.

“We have had complaints once in a while from a parent about that. We talk about the fact that our students have a right to freedom of speech and equal access, and each of those times we didn’t take the posters down, we didn’t change what the kids were trying to do,” said Randy Davis, Marshall Superintendent.

Miss Governor Attacked By Diversity Enforcers For Not Appointing Enough Blacks To College Board…

Not one legislator has attacked the Governor for not appointing a LBGBTQXYZ to the board.

Via The Clarion Ledger

Black legislative and higher education leaders are protesting Gov. Phil Bryant’s appointees to the state College Board, saying they lack diversity and representation of historically black public universities.

The protest came shortly before a Senate committee on Thursday passed the last three of Bryant’s four new appointees – including one African American – to the full Senate for ratification. It also comes as the College Board is under fire for the ouster of Ole Miss Chancellor Dan Jones.

“Gov. Bryant’s College Board appointments damage higher education and disrespect Alcorn, Mississippi Valley and Jackson State universities,” said Sen. Kenny Wayne Jones, D-Canton, chair of the Mississippi Legislative Black Caucus. “For the first time in 50 years, these state institutions will not have a voice on the IHL board.”

The Black Caucus and the Mississippi Coalition on Black Higher Education in a press conference at the Capitol on Thursday called for Bryant to reconsider his appointments. Jones said the caucus will vote against Bryant’s appointments in the Senate, which must ratify them with a majority vote. The caucus has 12 members in the 52-member Senate.[…]

ryant spokeswoman Nicole Webb defended the governor’s appointees, saying there’s been diversity in his appointment to the College Board and other positions.

In a statement Webb said: “In 2012, Gov. Bryant appointed a woman and an African American man to the IHL Board of Trustees. This year, he appointed an African American graduate of Tougaloo College to the Board of Trustees. He has appointed a woman to the Board of Education and a woman to the Worker’s Compensation Commission. He also recently appointed an African American, Jerry Griffith Sr., to the Mississippi Gaming Commission. This is the first time in the history of the Gaming Commission an African American has been appointed.”

Webb also said Bryant’s first appointment as governor was Maj. Gen. Leon Collins, the first African American adjutant general of the Mississippi National Guard.[…]

State Sen. Hillman Frazier, a member of the Universities and Colleges Committee, said it was no reflection on new appointees, but he was concerned that no female was among them.

“They should be at the table,” Frazier said. “It’s a step backward not to have women at the table.”
