Minneapolis Teachers to Be Laid Off Based on Race

Moonbats bark incessantly about systemic racism. To see how it works in the real world, consider a new agreement reached between the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers and Minneapolis Public Schools:

The agreement states that if a non-white teacher is subject to excess, MPS must excess a white teacher with the “next least” seniority.

To “excess” is to lay off. If a black teacher would normally be laid off, the white teacher with the next least seniority gets laid off instead. Because white people are racist and bad.

The agreement also prioritizes the reinstatement of teachers from “underrepresented populations” over white teachers.

Systemic racism is real. It works in favor of the privileged identity groups the liberal establishment tells us are “oppressed.”

As noted by Hans Bader,

This violates a well-known Supreme Court decision overturning the race-based layoff of a white teacher, and contradicts a well-known federal appeals court decision, which ruled that race-based layoffs of white teachers violate Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. …

Since the teachers union supported the adoption of this discriminatory provision, it may also be liable for discrimination along with the school district. Unions are subject to liability for racial discrimination under Title VII and 42 U.S.C. 1981, see, e.g., Woods v. Graphic Communications (1991), and the Supreme Court has ruled that people who conspire with the government to discriminate can sometimes be sued along with it under the Constitution, see Adickes v. S.H. Kress & Co. (1971).

The race-based layoff provision also violates the law against racial discrimination in contracts, 42 U.S.C. 1981, for essentially the same reasons it violates the Constitution.

Such inconvenient laws and rulings demonstrate why it is so important to progressives to do whatever it takes to put unprincipled apparatchiks like Merrick Garland in charge of the courts — even if it means castrating the Supreme Court with the TERM Act.

University of Utah Doctoral Program Is Blacks Only

Systemic racism against put-upon blacks has reached such an extreme that a doctoral program at the University of Utah allows no one else to take part:

The program, “provides a scholarly community and educational services for African American doctoral students,” according to the university. The program also provides scholarships to “full-time African American” students who “demonstrate a commitment to understanding Black life, history, and culture in the United States.”

The point of the program is to train clergy in the official religion of our moonbat ruling class, Critical Race Theory.

The school further stated that the initiative “creates a multidisciplinary, critical mass of African American scholars dedicated to the eradication of institutional and systemic racism and oppression by addressing the inequities endured by African American people.”

Among the inequities they are forced to endure are programs established exclusively for their use.

In the unlikely event that a university ever creates a program only for whites, the shrieks of outrage will be audible from outer space.

The liberal agenda calls for disfavoring, marginalizing, excluding, and eventually eradicating Caucasians. Academia promotes this agenda even more aggressively than the federal government.

A [Department of Education] spokesperson confirmed that “there is an open investigation into the University of Utah under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination based on race, color, or national origin in programs or activities receiving federal financial assistance from the Department of Education.”

The investigation is likely to peter out after people stop paying attention. Then our tax money can go back to training the CRT clergy.

Global Warming Is Racist

The beauty of modern liberal ideology is that everything in the universe fits into its core principle that blacks are oppressed. All bad things are aspects of black oppression — even global warming:

A letter from New York City Department of health officials warned medical workers…

…that extreme heat “is the deadliest type of extreme weather” and that black people are twice as likely to die from heat stroke as white people in the Big Apple.

“Cold weather is 20 times as deadly as hot weather” admit even the libs at USA Today. But that only applies to the real world, not the realm of pure moonbattery inhabited by the kooks running NYC.

“Structural racism and the resulting social and economic inequities” are the reasons that heat affects blacks more than whites, according to ideologically deranged Health Department bureaurats.

Historically redlined neighborhoods across the country that are currently home to a large black population can be 13 degrees hotter than majority of white neighborhoods, a 2020 study found.

The Experts are expert at proving whatever needs to be proven. That’s how government funding is acquired.

Since the natural fluctuation of the climate that leftists have exploited to justify wasteful spending and increase their power affects sacred blacks worse than the less worthy white race, it would be racist not to grant Democrats the total control required to take charge of the planet’s thermostat.

Deputy National Cyber Director Is Racist Kook

The greatest threat to American security is that its defense is in the hands of people like Camille Stewart, who appears far less interested in security than in the cultural Marxist ideology that likely put her in her position through Affirmative Action.

From the Washington Free Beacon:

Stewart, a former Google strategist whom Biden reportedly tapped for White House deputy national cyber director, has argued that “our #NatSec apparatus must be a part of dismantling systemic racism,” and “pursuing anti-racist and anti-hate policy outcomes” should be a chief national security focus for the administration.

Given that the official religion of the Biden Regime is critical race theory, by “anti-racist” she means “racist,” and by “anti-hate” she means “anti-white.”

Like most Democrat apparatchiks — especially those who took part in the Obama Administration — Stewart detests America:

Stewart, who served as policy adviser for the Obama administration’s Department of Homeland Security, has criticized the United States as an intrinsically racist society in her writing and on social media.

She barks that imaginary racism against obsequiously favored blacks like herself is part of “every institution not just the criminal justice system.”

By now, the message is familiar. Black lives matter, so let’s empty the prisons onto the streets and drive the homicide rate in black neighborhoods into the stratosphere. But what about cybersecurity?

“[Solutions] to cybersecurity challenges will never reach their full potential until systemic racism is addressed and diverse voices are reflected among our ranks at all levels,” Stewart wrote in a 2020 column for the Council on Foreign Relations titled “Systemic Racism Is a National Security Threat.”

Meanwhile…

Since at least 2017, federal officials have investigated Chinese land purchases near critical infrastructure, shut down a high-profile regional consulate believed by the US government to be a hotbed of Chinese spies and stonewalled what they saw as clear efforts to plant listening devices near sensitive military and government facilities.

Among the most alarming things the FBI uncovered pertains to Chinese-made Huawei equipment atop cell towers near US military bases in the rural Midwest.

According to multiple sources familiar with the matter, the FBI determined the equipment was capable of capturing and disrupting highly restricted Defence Department communications, including those used by US Strategic Command, which oversees the country’s nuclear weapons.

That way, when they nuke us, we can’t nuke them back.

Odds that Stewart knows about this are slim. It isn’t relative to her area of expertise, critical race theory.

Half the population deserves the hard fall that Democrats are making inevitable. The rest of us don’t.

The ChiComs must love her.

Dog Names and Racism

According to our state religion, the key feature of American society is racism against blacks. Finding actual examples of racism against a group that is treated obsequiously has proven so difficult that academics have been reduced to denouncing racist reactions to dog names:

Academics recently applauded a Social Psychology Quarterly study purporting to show a disparity in the time dogs were adopted based on racial associations with the animals’ names.

“White” names, according to the study, resulted in shorter adoption times compared to “Black” names.

The correlations were largely concentrated around pit bulls, “a breed that is stereotyped as dangerous and racialized as Black,” according to the study.

If you regard pit bulls — which often kill people — as dangerous, you too are a racist, so repent.

Academic responses to this moronic study provide insight into the level of uselessness much of academia has attained. For example:

“Dr. Nef” (a.k.a. Nefertiti A. Walker) makes her living barking woke jabberwocky at University of Massachusetts Amherst, where she holds the title Interim Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer. Her Selected Publications list includes “The tipping point: The intersection of race, gender, and sexual orientation in intercollegiate sports” and “Hegemonic masculinity and the institutionalized bias of women in men’s collegiate basketball.”

Academics draw six-figure salaries — lavishly subsidized by taxpayers — to spew poisonous nonsense that makes us hate each other.

World Economic Forum: Climate Change Is Racist

More wisdom has been bestowed upon us by our globalist masters. Now we learn that it would be racist not to give up our freedom and standard of living so that our rulers can control the weather, because global warming is worse for sacred blacks.

From the World Economic Forum:

Black communities in the United States will see the flood risk in their neighbourhoods climb at least 20% over the next 30 years, experts are predicting.

The ancient Greeks had the Oracle of Delphi. We have to settle for the Experts.

Led by the University of Bristol in the UK, the study, published in the journal Nature, looks at how flooding will impact different communities unequally.

Only reliance on government funding can explain why scientists goof around trying to prove that theoretical flooding caused by an imaginary climate crisis is racist, instead of doing serious research.

The Experts admit that currently,

it’s impoverished white communities who are most at risk from flooding in low-lying areas at risk from heavy rainfall, the study finds.

No biggie, right? Nobody cares what happens to impoverished whites. They are deplorable. But wait:

[R]ising sea levels are predicted to push storm surges and high tides further inland. This means that, over the next 30 years, the flood risk burden “falls disproportionately on communities with large African American populations on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts,” the scientists warn.

That settles it. We must cause total economic collapse by banning fossil fuels at once. Only the most gullible believe this would have any perceptible impact on the weather, much less flooding, but at least we will know that we meant well.

By the way, it isn’t only flooding that is racist:

For example, the risk of wildfires is 50% higher for Black, Hispanic and Native American communities in the US, according to a study in the journal PLOS ONE. Air pollution also causes three times more deaths for Black Americans.

If acts of God like flooding and wildfires are racist, then God must be racist. That’s why we should worship the Experts instead.

The Experts offer solutions:

Climate and environmental risks make up five of the top 10 risks in the World Economic Forum’s new Global Risks Report 2022. Its Climate Justice Challenge aims to advance environmental and socio-economic solutions for communities most impacted by climate change.

Race-based socialism sounds good to some, or Democrats wouldn’t keep getting elected. If wealth redistribution doesn’t perfect the weather at first, we’ll just have to double down and redistribute more.

Dems Can’t Have It Both Ways on Guns and Blacks

Democrats demonize the NRA, while presenting themselves as the heroic saviors of blacks. This won’t wash with people who know history. Sam Jacobs, for example:

[T]he NRA has historically opposed laws that were virtually tailor made to deny African-Americans the right to keep and bear arms. Many gun control laws to this day stem from the KKK’s fear of armed and independent minorities. The Rosewood Massacre in 1923 – a bloodbath led by a white mob that resulted in the destruction of an entire black community in Florida – was a clear example of how an armed black people could prevent future KKK raids. …

[T]he uptick in black NRA members as well as gun ownership and firearms acceptability in the black community isn’t an anomaly, but a reconnection with a deeper past stretching back to Reconstruction. The right to keep and carry arms was even mentioned in the infamous Supreme Court case of Scott v. Sandford, where the enslaved Dred Scott sued for his freedom.

Jerone Davison is a former ASU and NFL running back who is running to represent Arizona’s 1.8% black 4th congressional district. He knows history too:

Founded by Democrats, the KKK has been referred to as the terrorist wing of the Democratic Party. In its prime, it served a role similar to today’s Antifa. The more things change…

Guns are called equalizers for good reason. That’s why women carry them to prevent being raped.

More Evidence That Blacks Live in Terror of Police

If black men have to live in terror of the police, imagine what it is like for black women, who according to the intersectional ideology of our intelligentsia are even more oppressed. The video below provides an indication.

In broad daylight, as we have come to expect:

Welcome to Chicago under the moonbat rule of Lori Lightfoot.

Those with the belly for it can watch the whole scene:

Small wonder if cities where authorities side with criminals against the police have a hard time recruiting officers.

If we are not able to pry liberals out of power and reverse the decay they have caused before the collapse of civilization goes much further, America will inevitably find itself invaded by a healthier society, if only so that our natural resources are not wasted. Whoever our conquerors turn out to be, they will be welcomed as liberators, because at least they won’t be liberals.

Evidence That Blacks Live in Terror of Police

I was skeptical of the claim shrieked incessantly by the liberal establishment during the Black Lives Matter riots that blacks live in terror of the police, who supposedly oppress them out of sheer racism. Adjusting for crime rates, whites are more likely than blacks to be shot by police, which is unsurprising, considering that cops are probably terrified to lift a finger against black criminals lest they end up like Derek Chauvin. Then I saw this video, reflecting what life is like in Los Angeles nowadays:

Notice that this poor fellow, weighted down by generations of historic marginalization, is so terrified that the police will come and interrupt his mostly peaceful activities that all he steals is a laptop. If he had taken the time to get in the car and search properly, he might have been able to help himself to an officer’s lunch. But Darth Vader might have dialed 911 on him, conceivably resulting in a ticket for disorderly conduct.

Black Tulsa Shooter Accused of White Supremacy

Good thing the maniac who killed four at the Natalie Medical Building in Tulsa on Wednesday was black. That way, the media/Democrats will quickly sweep the event under the rug, instead of compounding the tragedy by exploiting it ad nauseam to attack our right of self-defense.

But wait — turns out the shooter is another black face of white supremacy.

Shrieks New York State Assemblymoonbat Rodneyse Bichotte Hermelyn:

“Today’s atrocity in Tulsa happened on the 101st anniversary of the Tulsa Black Wall Street massacre. White Supremacy is clearly a factor.”

Clearly. Because everything that happens centers on the solipsistic self-pity of a privileged identity group.

Meanwhile, Tulsa Deputy Police Chief Eric Dalgleish describes the maniac as a black male, 35–40 years old.

Spinning this as white supremacy might be a stretch, but if the media can just ignore the race of the shooter, it might still stretch this out until the next shooting. In a country of 327 million, it won’t have long to wait.

If Democrats manage to confiscate our guns, next they will come after our cars. These kill a lot more people than guns do, like guns empower individuals, and also make it be too warm outside according to their ideology. You’ll know that day has come when the news consists mainly of hysterical accounts of traffic fatalities, punctuated with shrill calls to “do something.”

Schools to Grade Based on Race

Moonbats oppose merit. They prefer a different standard of value, based on their Cultural Marxist totem pole of power. Under liberal rule, this new standard is becoming institutionalized. For example, school grades are to be based on race in northern Illinois:

Oak Park and River Forest High School administrators will require teachers next school year to adjust their classroom grading scales to account for the skin color or ethnicity of its students. …

In an effort to equalize test scores among racial groups, OPRF will order its teachers to exclude from their grading assessments variables it says disproportionally hurt the grades of black students. They can no longer be docked for missing class, misbehaving in school or failing to turn in their assignments, according to the plan.

Not even Joe Biden could believe this will help blacks to achieve. Leftists want blacks to be perennial losers who can be exploited for political purposes.

Looks like our rulers have a long way to go to impose equality of outcome:

According to the Illinois State Board of Education, 38 percent of OPRF sophomore students taking the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) failed.

The OPRF failure rate was 77 percent for black students, 49 percent for Hispanics, 27 percent for Asians and 25 percent for whites.

Allowing blacks to blow off their homework, secure in the knowledge that they need not exert any effort because they will be graded on their skin color, obviously will not reduce the underlying disparities. Yet we are asked to believe that liberal educrats mean well.

[Assistant Superintendent for Student Learning Laurie] Fiorenza called for a switch to race-based grading last August, after issuing a report chronicling a spike in “F” grades by OPRF students in the 2020-21 school year.

This lunacy extends beyond the culturally decaying Chicago area:

School districts across the U.S. are “experimenting with getting rid of zero-to-100 point scales and other strategies to keep missed assignments from dramatically bringing down overall grades,” according to a March Associated Press report. “Others are allowing students to retake tests and turn work in late. Also coming under scrutiny are extra-credit assignments than can favor students with more advantages.”

Anything that allows the pursuit of excellence is viewed as a threat to equity.

A more unjust, unreasonable, and unproductive ideology than that of our ruling class would be difficult to imagine. There will be one hell of a backlash, if America survives long enough.

Karine Jean-Pierre May Be Qualified After All

Karine Jean-Pierre gives the impression of being yet another unqualified Affirmative Action hire. Unlike Kamala Harris and Ketanji Brown Jackson, she wasn’t explicitly given her position for identity politics purposes. Yet she checks more boxes than either of them, being not only a Woman of Color but also ostentatiously sexually aberrant and an immigrant born of a Haitian mother in Martinique. However, watching Mark Dice’s summary of her career as a propagandist suggests that she has the one skill required to be spokesmoonbat for Biden’s failing presidency.

Democrats are down to their last resort — namely, yelling their favorite word “racism” as if it were a magic incantation. Fortuitously, the one thought in Karine’s otherwise empty head appears to be, “Racist!”

Black Accused of Wearing Blackface

Unless you are a prominent moonbat like Justin Trudeau or Jimmy Kimmel, wearing blackface is thoughtcrime of the utmost seriousness. Those not punished by cancelation are subjected to pious reprimands of the sort liberals are so eager to inflict that even a black guy can be the target:

[Last] week, an [Arizona State University] instructor, and a librarian, who hold themselves out as being Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) gurus, falsely accused a Black DJ of wearing blackface during a charity event for the Scottsdale Unified school district.

The event had a disco theme. But the costumes didn’t extend to skin color.

Stuart Rhoden and Jill Lassen attacked the Scottsdale Unified School District’s Hopi Elementary PTA for hiring Koko Kim Hunter to host their charity auction.

They denounced Hunter for wearing blackface. He’s black.

The Arizona Library Association describes Jill Lassen as “an ardent community volunteer, activist, and ally to the LGBTQ+ community.” But she wasn’t too woke to wipe the egg off her face and sheepishly apologize.

In contrast, ASU instructor Stuart Rhoden, a member of Scottsdale Unified’s Equity and Inclusion Committee and the Scottsdale Human Relations Commission and a black guy himself, doubled down:

I did not state that the person was White. It was assumed that was my intent, and perhaps it was, but nonetheless, looking on his FB page … it seems at the very least he is in darker make-up if not “Black face” or I am completely mistaken and it’s the lighting of the patio.

A true moonbat never backs down from moonbattery. Once they start admitting to being wrong, their whole ideology will come unraveled.

Patrisse Cullors Is Triggered by Tax Forms

Race hate grifter Patrisse Cullors, cofounder of Black Lives Matter, has been getting uncomfortable questions about what happened to the tens of $millions virtue-signaling fools gave to her organization while it was burning and pillaging American cities during what the complicit media called “mostly peaceful protests.” She has responded exactly as you would expect — by wielding the “I’m a victim” cudgel:

The embattled activist, who is facing renewed criticism following reports BLM Global Network Foundation, while under her control, purchased a $6 million Los Angeles mansion, said she gets triggered whenever she hears the term IRS Form 990, the document charities are required to file to the public every year disclosing their financial activities.

As noted previously, Cullors evidently spent some of the money on her own luxurious homes. After she stepped down, leaving no one in charge, most of the fortune that liberals had shoveled at Black Lives Matter vanished.

“This doesn’t seem safe for us, this 990 structure — this nonprofit system structure,” Cullors said. “This is, like, deeply unsafe. This is being literally weaponized against us, against the people we work with.”

A self-described Marxist who was instrumental in setting off many hundreds of declared riots feels unsafe because laws against fraud, embezzlement, and tax evasion may apply even to a sacred Person of Oppressedness. The heart bleeds.
