New York considers ending literacy tests for prospective public school teachers because too many black and Hispanic applicants were failing
The New York Post reports:
State education officials plan to scrap a literacy exam given to prospective teachers
And why are they doing this? The article continues:
Sources said education officials also were concerned about the disparity between passing rates among white and minority candidates.
In 2013-14, only 48 percent of aspiring black teachers and 56 percent of prospective Hispanic educators passed, compared to 75 percent of white candidates, the website Chalkbeat reported in February.
And there you have it.
The public school bureaucrats think that when it comes to hiring teachers, racial diversity is more important than knowing how to read.
This is what happens when you put idiots in charge.

CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill says “there have been right wing riots on college campuses” but can’t name any examples
In this video, CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill says
“there have been right wing riots on college campuses”
However, when he is asked to name an actual real world example of this, he can’t come up with any.
I’m going to make an even broader generalization:
In the United States during the 21st century so far, whether it be on or off college campuses, whenever there has been an organized group of political protestors assaulting innocent people, pepper spraying innocent people, throwing rocks and bottles at police officers, committing arson, burning cars, burning buildings, smashing windows, looting, vandalizing cars while the terrified innocent driver is inside, standing in the street deliberately blocking traffic, or standing in front of and blocking oncoming ambulances that have their lights on and sirens blaring, these organized groups of political protestors have always been on the political left, and never on the political right.
And if I am wrong about this, please point out an example in the comment section.

Georgetown Islamic Studies Professor: Slavery OK, So is Non-Consensual Sex
February 10, 2017
A professor at Georgetown University is teaching his students that men do not need consent to have sex with women, and that slavery is justifiable under Islamic teachings.
Islamic Studies professor Jonathan Brown recently lectured at the International Institute of Islamic Thought, where he shared his alarming beliefs with students in attendance in his lecture, “Islam and the Problem of Slavery.” Freelance writer Umar Lee expressed his shock over the 90-minute lecture, which included explicit endorsements of rape and slavery.
Brown himself uploaded the lecture to YouTube.
According to Lee, Brown’s lecture was supposed to revolve around slavery in Islam, but the lecturer moved its focus to criticize the United States, United Kingdom and China. Brown described slavery in these non-Muslim societies as brutal, which they were, but lauded the historically inhumane practice in Arab lands and Turkey.
“Indeed, according to Brown, slaves in the Muslim world lived a pretty good life,” wrote Lee. “I thought the Muslim community was done with this dishonest North Korean style of propaganda. Obviously not.”
Brown decried the use of prison labor in the United States and highlighted other problems inherent in Western society, but refused to address the abuse of foreign laborers in the Gulf or the ghastly treatment of prisoners in the Middle East. It was a one-sided lecture that glorified his religion while demonizing Western society.
The Islamic Studies professor said that in Muslim societies, “slavery wasn’t racialized,” unlike the United States. Lee points out that this is untrue, given that in the Arab world, black people are referred to as “abeed,” the Arab word for “slave.”
Brown stated that slaves were “protected by Sharia,” omitting the various atrocities committed by slave-owners. Girls and women were forced into the sex trade and their male counterparts were often castrated.
“In general you don’t find the brutality that you see in American slavery,” said Brown, who described the historically common practice as “investments” and “walking venture properties” for slave-owners.
The soft-pedaling and revisionism of historical atrocities is deplorable, to say the least.
Historically, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams conducted warfare against vassal states of the Ottoman Empire to end the Barbary slave trade, in which North African pirates conducted constant raids into European coastal towns to capture men and women for slavery.
Brown defended slavery, stating, “It’s not immoral for one human to own another human” by comparing it to marriage—a quid pro quo arrangement in which both slave and master benefited from the arrangement.
“I don’t think it’s morally evil to own somebody because we own lots of people all around us and we’re owned by people,” said Brown.
A female attendee asked Brown about the permissibility of sex with slaves, to which the professor stated that “Consent isn’t necessary for lawful sex,” and defined consent as a Western concept that emerged with women’s suffrage and female body autonomy. Brown, he said, believes that marital rape was an invalid concept in Islam.
Had Prof. Brown’s words been spoken by a practicing member of any other religion, they would’ve lost their jobs and shunned out of the academic world.

For anyone who has never heard a Milo Yiannopoulos speech and is curious to know what all the fuss is about, this is the last speech that he gave before the Berkeley riots. This speech was given at Cal Poly on January 31, 2017 – just one day before the Berkeley riots.
And while you’re watching this speech, please keep in mind that more than 100 UC Berkeley faculty members signed a petition to ban Milo from speaking at UC Berkeley the very next day. Every Milo speech is different, but this speech from Cal Poly is representative of what these UC Berkely professors, and all of the other anti-free speech social justice warriors, don’t want you to hear, spoken by someone whom they claim is a Nazi.
I’m guessing that Milo has become about 1,000 times more popular than he ever would have been if people hadn’t tried to silence him.
Milo starts speaking at 5:46
Muslim student faked vile hate crime to get people to pay attention to him
February 4, 2017
A Muslim student at a liberal arts college in Wisconsin has been arrested for spray painting reprehensible anti-Muslim messages on his own dorm room door and then filing a report claiming that he was the victim of a hate crime.
The totally fake hate crime occurred last weekend at Beloit College, a 1,400-student bastion bursting with idiosyncratic individualists who enjoy leftist politics.
The student who falsely claimed that he was a victim of a terrible hate crime is Michael Kee, campus police told regional Fox affiliate WQRF-TV.
There were three spray-painted messages — all in bold red. In addition to “Sand nigger go home,” the other two messages read “#muslimban” and “Die,” according to a contemporaneous account by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Investigators say Kee, 20, eventually admitted that he perpetrated the hoax.
Kee faces a trio of charges: criminal damage to property, disorderly conduct and obstruction.
The cost for a single year of tuition, fees and room and board at Beloit is $55,206, according to the school’s website.
The school is located in a pleasant Wisconsin town, just over the Illinois border.

The social justice warriors who control Amherst College expelled an innocent student who was falsely accused of sexual assault, because they think emotions are more important than evidence
At Amherst College, an innocent male student who was expelled after being falsely accused of sexual assault says that he can use text messages to prove his innocence. But the school and a judge won’t let him do that, because it might hurt the feelings of the female student who made the false accusations against him.
Social justice warriors, as always, think that emotions are more important than facts.

Black Lives Matter crowd cheers as activist calls for an end to capitalism, demands white people give up all of their possessions, and says “we need to start killing people”
The fact that abolishing private property has been a total failure in each and every country where it has been tried, and has led to nothing but misery, poverty, hunger, famine, empty shelves in stores, dictatorship, oppression, censorship, political imprisonment, and a shortage of toilet paper, the crowd cheers as this Black Lives Matter activist calls for the U.S. to do the very same thing.
They also cheer as she says, at 1:50, “we need to start killing people.”

Women’s march speaker Donna Hylton spent 27 years in a maximum-security prison for being an accessory to the kidnapping, torture, rape, and murder of a gay man
Which is not surprising, given that we already knew that women’s march organizer Linda Sarsour wants the U.S. to adopt Sharia law.

The limousine that was set on fire by social justice warriors during the inauguration is owned by a Muslim immigrant. The driver was hospitalized.
I hope the scumbags who did this will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
The driver was sent to the hospital. I guess when these thugs smash windows and set things on fire, it never occurs to them that their damage of property might also cause damage to people. Or maybe it did occur to them, and they just didn’t care. Or maybe it did occur to them, and they actually thought it would be an added bonus. Regardless, they are evil, and I hope they spend a long, long time in jail for doing this.
Limo torched in DC protests belongs to Muslim immigrant, may cost $70,000 in damages
January 23, 2017
The limousine that was set on fire during the anti-Trump anarchist protest in downtown Washington on Inauguration Day is owned by a Muslim immigrant who says the damage could cost his company $70,000.
Muhammad Ashraf, the owner of Nationwide Chauffeur Services, spoke with the Washington Examiner’s sister publication, Red Alert Politics, about what happened.
Ashraf’s employee, Luis Villarroel, 58, was dropping a client off at their destination when things turned ugly. Protesters smashed doors and windows in the vicinity, but then turned their attention to Villarroel and the limo. People began pounding on the car and started throwing stones and bricks in his direction. The driver ended up going to the hospital for cuts on his hands and arms from glass being shattered by thrown projectiles.
Ashraf explained that with the loss of the vehicle, his company is now in the hole for $70,000 (if insurance doesn’t cover riots) plus commission and the medical bills for his driver.

This is what wikipedia says about the dangerous butyric acid that anti-Trump protestors were planning to release:
Inhalation of butyric acid may result in soreness of throat, coughing, a burning sensation, and laboured breathing. Ingestion of the acid may result in abdominal pain, shock, and collapse. Physical exposure to the acid may result in pain, blistering and skin burns, while exposure to the eyes may result in pain, severe deep burns and loss of vision.
Personal protective equipment such as rubber or PVC gloves, protective eye goggles, and chemical-resistant clothing and shoes are used to minimize risks when handling butyric acid.
Wow. That’s majorly serious harm that the anti-Trump protestors were planning to cause to innocent human beings.
My guess is that the release of this video four days before Trump’s inauguration is the only thing that prevented this dangerous and harmful attack against innocent people from taking place.
This undercover video by Project Veritas was published on the veritasvisuals YouTube channel four days before Trump’s inauguration:

In my opinion, any college student who tries to physically prevent other students from getting to class should be expelled.
Whatever their actual goal was, the only result they could possibly get from this kind of thing is to show the whole world that they are bullies.
And please keep in mind that this is not just any college – this is one of the most prestigious colleges in the U.S.
Actually, it seems to be that the more prestigious the college, the more dumb the protestors are.
I’m guessing that in this group of protestors, there are probably exactly zero STEM majors.
Berkeley protesters form human chain to stop white students from getting to class
October 24, 2016
Students at the University of California, Berkeley held a day of protest on Friday to demand the creation of additional “safe spaces” for transgender and nonwhite students, during which a human chain was formed on a main campus artery to prevent white students from getting to class.
The demonstrators were caught on video blocking Berkeley’s Sather Gate, holding large banners advocating the creation of physical spaces segregated by race and gender identity, including one that read “Fight 4 Spaces of Color.”
Protesters can be heard shouting “Go around!” to white students who attempt to go through the blockade, while students of color are greeted with calls of “Let him through!”
Students turned away by the mob are later shown filing through trees and ducking under branches in order to cross Strawberry Creek, which runs underneath the bridge.
Protesting students went on to march through the Berkeley Student Union, chanting and disrupting students who are studying.
One student, who was not a part of the protest, tells the videomaker that the demonstrators are “being quite childish.”
“I agree with the right to protest, but disrupting the peace of others is not OK,” he says.
The group later occupies the school store, chanting “Students Over Profits!” They place an “eviction notice” on the store, which claims the university “wrongly allocated this two-story facility to third-party corporations, keeping in line with its intensifying legacy of prioritizing financial profit over student needs.”
Demonstrators finally made their way to an intersection in front of campus, where students blocked traffic and chanted, “Whose university? Our university!”

First, a patient died because Black Lives Matter prevented an ambulance from taking him to the hospital.
Afterward, Black Lives Matter continued blocking ambulances from taking sick people to the hospital.
And now we have this latest incident:
Family with sick child was stuck on bridge during rally
Jul 12, 2016
Memphis, TN (WMC) – The Memphis Black Lives Matter rally shut down the I-40 bridge Sunday night with hundreds of protesters refusing to leave. Traffic could not go across, but paramedic Bobby Harrell with Crittenden EMS was determined to get to a child who was stuck on the bridge with his family.
“We received a call there was a child needing medical attention stuck in traffic up on the bridge and due to the protest going on the bridge the family was not able to get through traffic to get him to Le Bonheur,” Harrell said.
A photo shows parents handing the child off to paramedics on the bridge.
“The sheriff’s department had to escort us up the wrong way of the interstate to the child,” he said.
Harrell said after he had the very sick child in the ambulance, the driver had to go 25 minutes out of the way.
“We had to turn around and come back to West Memphis and cross over at MLK to get over to 55.”
Then from I-55, they headed to Le Bonheur Children’s hospital. Harrell said he knew about the protest on the bridge, so he had a contingency plan to take patients to Arkansas hospitals and fly critical patients to Memphis. He didn’t plan to end up on the bridge.
“It was kind of tense. I really didn’t know what to expect going up there.”
Harrell said he got the child to Le Bonheur just in time. The child’s father stayed with the family’s car and was eventually able to get there.
Why does Black Lives Matter repeatedly prevent sick people from getting to the hospital?
I love this guy’s videos, and this is one of the best ones that he has ever done.

Apparently, if you’re a social justice warrior, it’s OK to use racial slurs against blacks, even while simultaneously claiming that you’re against racism!
In the five minute video shown below, social justice warriors burn the U.S. flag.
In a rare case of social justice warriors defending private property rights, they say that they have the right to burn the flag because they own the flag. I agree with them.
They also use lots of profanity.
Beginning at 3:18, one of the social justice warriors begins to use racial slurs against a black person who supports Donald Trump. Apparently, this social justice warrior thinks that it’s wrong for a black person to support the political party that freed the slaves.
Social justice warriors at Salisbury University stop being mad over anti-black hate crime when they find out the perpetrators were black
At Salisbury University in Maryland, someone drew a body hanging from a noose, with the n-word, and a “white power” hashtag.
Here is the image, which I got from here, and am using under fair use:
Everyone at the college was upset over this, and justifiably so.
However, after it was discovered that the two people who drew the image and wrote the words were black, some of the people who had been upset, stopped being upset.
The social justice warriors no longer seemed to care.
The school police said that no charges will be filed.
And the school refuses to name the two students.
In my opinion, the fact that these two students are black should not make any difference in how they are treated.
Regardless of their race, they should be identified, expelled, and charged.
But because they are black, none of those things is happening.
There is definitely a huge double standard going on.

Social justice warriors at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are demanding that two students of Arabic heritage be expelled from the college because they wore Arabic clothing!
Let me repeat: the “offending” students – the students who were accused of “cultural appropriation” – are of Arabic heritage and were wearing Arabic clothing.
Those two students are in the bottom right of the picture, shown below.
The social justice warriors also want everyone else in the picture expelled too.
After being told that the two students wearing Arabic clothing were themselves of Arabic descent, one of the social justice warriors who had demanded their explusion said:
“Although that story might justify on an individual level, it does not justify on a systemic level because when people see it, they don’t know that story. When they see it, they see it as a justification for wearing cultural costumes.”
Four different social justice oragnizations at the college – “Students for Justice in Palestine,” “Black Students for Revolution,” “Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan,” and “Campus Union for Trans Equality and Support” – all joined together to form a brand new social justice organization called “Not Just a Party at UIUC” (NJAP).
Apparently, it never occurred to them that the acronym “NJAP” contains a racial slur.
That they would form a brand new organization in response to some students having a party that consisted of consenting adults is absurd.
That they would demand that everyone who attended the party be expelled is also absurd.
That they would consider it “cultural appropriation” when students wear clothing from their own culture, well, that’s absurd too.

This one fast food employee has more work ethic, integrity, and respect, than all of these social justice warriors combined:
‘Fight for 15′ Protesters Invade Fast Food Restaurant, Invite Worker to Go on ‘Strike’ — Just Watch How She Responds
April 15, 2016
A group of “Fight for 15” protesters invaded a Taco Bell restaurant in Austin, Texas, on Thursday and invited a worker to go on “strike” to demand more money and better working conditions.
The protesters’ message wasn’t well received by the employee, who said she just wanted to do her job.
After one protester informed her it was a “day of action,” the employee responded sharply, “This is also a job that I am trying to do.”
“Y’all are hindering my work, you may leave the building,” she added.
The apparent leader of the protest still finished his speech and invited her to go on “strike” and join the protest — but she didn’t seem interested in the least.
The Venezuelan military has troops stationed in supermarkets, and they are telling customers not to take pictures of empty shelves. But that hasn’t stopped people from doing it. During the first week of 2015, the Twitter hashtag #AnaquelesVaciosEnVenezuela (“Empty shelves in Venezuela”) listed more than 200,000 tweets.
For example: (posted here under fair use from https://twitter.com/Indiferencia/status/551547489565016064/photo/1 )

Every country starts out poor. Ten thousand years ago, every country was poor. It’s only when a country adopts and maintains widespread economic growth over time that the country becomes rich. The emergence of sweatshops in a poor country is often a sign that that country has climbed onto the ladder of economic growth and upward mobility.
Until fairly recently, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea were poor, third world countries. It was only after they started climbing the ladder of economic growth that they became rich. Sweatshops played a big role in these countries change from being poor to being rich.
More recently, other countries have started having sweatshops. Critics of these sweatshops complain about the low wages and poor working conditions of these sweatshops. But these critics never compare the wages and working conditions of the sweatshops to what the workers had before the sweatshops opened.
I trust the average person to choose the job that is best for him. So if someone is working in a sweatshop, I believe that he is doing so because it is his best option, out of all of his real world options.
