Really. Please leave…

Dear Azealia Banks, Please Feel Free To Leave America And Never Return

I did notice, however, this portion:

“I hate everything about this country. Like, I hate fat white Americans… All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms… Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma — that’s really America.”

You then fantasized about eventually leaving this country:

“As long as I have my money, I’m getting the f*** out of here and I’m gonna leave y’all to your own devices.”

Finally you spoke a bit about the reparations you deserve, and said it’s unnatural for you to be American or Christian:

“Black people need reparations for building this country, and we deserve way more f***ing credit and respect… When you rip a people from their land, from their customs, from their culture — there’s still a piece of me that knows I’m not supposed to be speaking English, I’m not supposed to be worshiping Jesus Christ…All this s**t is unnatural to me.”

May I check that for you?

The Privilege of Checking White Privilege

When students are compelled to have “White Privilege 101” classes, we have every right to ask: Why, and for whose benefit?
If you’ve been white lately, you have likely been confronted with the idea that to be a good person, you must cultivate a guilt complex over the privileged status your race enjoys.

It isn’t that you are doing, or even quite thinking, anything racist. Rather, your existential state of Living While White constitutes a form of racism in itself. Your understanding will serve as a tool … for something. But be careful about asking just what that something is, because that will mean you “just don’t get it.”

I assume, for example, that the idea is not to teach white people that White Privilege means that black people are the only group of people in human history who cannot deal with obstacles and challenges. If the idea is that black people cannot solve their problems short of white people developing an exquisite sensitivity to how privileged they are, then we in the black community are being designated as disabled poster children.

So let’s start this stage of our “dialogue on race” with a simple question: When our mandated diversity director says, “This is messy work, but these conversations are necessary,” we have every right, as moral persons, to ask: Why, and for whose benefit?

One of their more stupid bandwagon jumps…

A Starbucks exec deleted his Twitter account after backlash over the company’s ‘race together’ campaign

ban-starbucksStarbucks is in hot water after launching a campaign that encourages baristas to talk about race relations with customers.

Critics have been lashing out at the company on social media, saying Starbucks is trying to capitalize on racial tension in the US.

Following the backlash, Starbucks’ senior vice president of communications, Corey duBrowa, deleted his Twitter account, which only added to critics’ outrage.

Makes me glad I don’t bow to the green mermaid.

I’d Like A Skim Caramel Macchiato With A Discussion Of Race, Please

 Starbucks Wants To Talk To You About Race

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has launched a new initiative that will encourage the company’s baristas to talk to patrons about America’s racial issues.

To trigger the conversations, in the next week baristas will be encouraged to write the phrase “Race Together” on customers cups, which is intended to “facilitate a conversation between you and our customers,” according to Schultz.

“If a customer asks you what this is, try to engage in a discussion that we have problems in this country in regards to race. And we believe that we are better than this, and we believe our country is better than this,” Schultz said in a video shown to Starbucks employees, according to USA Today.

The campaign is being bolstered by an 8-page supplement that will be published Friday by the coffeemaker in USA Today. The supplement will include “conversation starters,” such as the statement “In the past year, I have been to the home of someone of a different race ___ times.”

The campaign is said to be inspired by the controversy emanating from the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner last year, both of them black men killed by white police officers. What the initiative hopes to accomplish in the long run is unclear, though the company will be offering more information during its annual meeting on Wednesday.

Let’s call it what it is. The brain-trust which is Starbucks wants to make money off the promotion of racism…

Asians Penalized 50 Points On SAT – Black Students Given 230 Bonus Points…

Don’t let your jaw drop too far, this fundamental change is not just happening in college application processes.  This exact same methodology is also being applied to Credit Scores for home mortgages and car loans.

Complaints about bias in college admissions have persisted since at least the 1920s, when a Harvard University president tried to cap the number of Jewish students. In November, a group called Students for Fair Admissions filed a suit against Harvard University for admissions policies that allegedly discriminate against Asian Americans. The group cited the 2004 Princeton study and other sources that offer statistics about Asian Americans’ test performance.

At the University of Texas at Austin, an affirmative action policy that allows admissions committees to consider the race of prospective applicants has been argued all the way to the Supreme Court. (The policies were upheld by a lower court, but that court’s decision was voided by the Supreme Court. Another court upheld the policies and another appeal is pending.)

Those who defend “holistic” admissions policies insist that considering a broader range of variables ensures that all applicants are judged fairly. And the Princeton study Lee refers to has been widely criticized by academics who argue that it relies too heavily on grades and test scores to draw conclusions about racial bias and that the data the study uses are too old to be relevant.

Sorry, you called me what?


This happened to me yesterday. A young person interested in journalism asked me for advice about becoming a columnist. We sat down to talk things through. How did one pitch a subject to a commissioning editor? What process did I go through to think of a topic to write about? Who else other than The Times did I write for? The Jewish Chronicle, I told him. But that was much less frequent and at £X per column did not amount to a substantial proportion of my income though – I added quickly (imagining his circumstances) – I should not be so blasé.

And this is what he then said. “It’s not surprising is it? I mean, they’re notoriously tight-fisted.” Eh? What was that? “They”? He might as well have produced a platypus from his trousers. So, astonished and hoping I might have misinterpreted him but fearing that I had not, I checked. “Who is tight-fisted?” And he replied, in a mildly baffled voice, “Jews. They’re known to be stingy and miserly with money.” If my face registered my feelings it must have been quite a sight. “Are you serious?” I asked. “It’s what everyone says,” he protested. “It’s well known.” Not trusting myself to any further conversation and needing to calm down I sent him away. Later he returned to apologise. He had not meant, he told me, to be in any way offensive. He was very sorry if he had been. And I could tell he had almost no idea of why I had reacted as I did. For him the sentiment that Jews were money-grubbing misers was not just commonplace, it appeared that he had never even heard it contradicted. Perhaps in his part of the country (rural East Anglia, I discovered) it was what everyone thought. But you might have expected a three year degree course at a new university to produce at least one challenge to this medieval stereotype.

He was not Jewish himself, but was he joking in some kind of installation-art offensive way? In our previous discussion there was no hint of a smile or a laugh, he had shown no inclination to be witty. If anything he was over-earnest.

I have little doubt that his prejudice was held out of naivete not malice. By way of evidence for this, it seemed not to have occurred to him that someone writing for the Jewish Chronicle and possessing a name like mine might actually be, in some sense or relationship, a bit Jewish. I don’t think that even if he had thought black people were, say, animalistic, he would have sat down with a black writer and talked about “them” having smaller brains. (There is, of course, a comedy in this since I may be one of the better known “Jewish” writers in Britain, making his choice of insultee an improbably bad one, as the fact of this column demonstrates.)

I hated him for a few minutes, and couldn’t bear the thought of exchanging another word with him, but then the “why” supplanted the “what”. And I thought about what it meant. The first observation I would make is that for him, and possibly his generation, the idea of giving offence is more important than holding a terrible idea. Thinking and saying a dreadful and damaging thing about Jews (or whoever) was less of a crime than making me feel offended by expressing it to me. ”I don’t care about being offended,” I told him, when he apologised. “I care about you being a racist”.

The second observation is the obvious one. Is that what they really think? I can’t get the moment and shock out of my head. After everything that has happened and that day – the day – that the commemoration of the liberation of Auschwitz was actually on the TV screens behind us, a young Briton tells me about our racial shortcomings.

Anti-Redskins Rally Featuring 12 Whole Protesters


On Sunday, social media and pop culture news website Mashable jumped to report on the massive protest near the Washington Redskins stadium in Washington D.C.

The crowd, Mashable reported, was rallying to force the team to change its “racist” name. Mashable also helpfully included a photo of the big rally showing twelve whole people who were in attendance.

In her article, Mashable’s Laura Vito claimed that “more than 100 demonstrators” gathered a third of a mile from FedExField at a rally to change the name of the team. She also sonorously noted that “Sunday’s rally is just the latest in ongoing protests against the NFL team’s name.”

But Mashable chose a very unfortunate photo to affix to its tweet flogging Vito’s article. It was a photo that brought a lot of scoffing and rib-poking for the Mashable team.

The photo used to illustrate the tweet about Vito’s report showed only 12 protesters at the rally—two of them little kids.

This photo of a big 12 rally attendees brought the Twitter wags out in full force.

Obama’s Black Skin Privilege


We are allowing Barack Obama to get away with this because he is black. That’s it, and that’s all. To say if he were white he would have been impeached already is a non-sequitor; if he were white a man of his inexperience and radical background would never have been elected in the first place. America voted for him to prove they were not racist, and now we will let him destroy this government for the same reason.

It’s guilt that paralyzes us – this Progressive Obama dictatorship is built on guilt over the original sin of slavery.

It’s guilt – and also fear. That’s why Obama and Eric Holder have been encouraging the Ferguson protestors to stay the course. “We don’t give a fuck about your laws,” said one of them, and the President and the disgraceful Attorney General obviously don’t either. They need Ferguson to remind the American people of what will happen should they decide to hold the first black President accountable to the same rules as the previous forty-four.

Everyone knows it is true, and no one has the courage to say it. I believe that Barack Obama and his multiple, flagrant and impeachable illegal actions should be judged not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character.
