The module in question, a publicly available lesson geared toward high schoolers on what makes communities “welcoming and inclusive,” featured a video on slide 19 describing “MAGA,” “All Lives Matter,” “colorblindness,” and dozens more mainstream and ideological terms and concepts as examples of “covert racism and white supremacy.”
The Advent School in Boston, Massachusetts, for preschool through sixth-grade students, aims to mold students into activists for social justice in order to “equitably value and meet the needs” of the community, according to the school website. As part of the push for social justice, the school suggests teachers, students and families create “affinity groups” to separate themselves based on race, sexual orientation and gender identity
In her letter to parents, Rosenberg argues that parents and teachers “have all been socialized with the same poison of whiteness.” She also advocates for the integration of “anti-racist teaching into all subjects at all grade levels” on the basis that it will give white students more “exposure” to “racially stressful encounters.”
The lesson encourages students to see race and oppression in every situation and falls in line with the promotion of critical race theory and deconstructionism. An artist’s statement claims that black Americans are systemically oppressed in the United States: “
The graph Theijsmeijer posted breaks racist math down into two categories, "Overt White Supremacy" which includes using the n-word while doing math. The second is "Covert White Supremacy" which includes "2+2=4," along with "Assuming math is neutral," "Standardized testing," and "Dismissing alternative algorithms."
It’s almost like MSNBCs twin race-hustlers, Tiffany Cross and Joy Reid, are locked in a daily contest in which they try their damnedest to concoct the most ridiculous race-baiting lie of the day. Far as I can tell, it’s pretty much a dead heat. Toss in “justice correspondent” for The Nation, Elie Mystal, on one of their shows, and that day’s race is in the bag. It makes for great entertainment, of course, and the delusion is epic.
Completed in 1964, the freeway was built through a historic district known as Black Bottom, which was home to a community of black-owned businesses that had become run down by the 1950s and 1960s - attracting lower-income residents who lived in overcrowded housing units.
Racial justice advocates say the freeway was constructed to facilitate 'white flight' and deprive black communities of housing and commercial opportunities, as more than 100,000 black residents were displaced by a barrier between downtown Detroit and communities to the east.
That said, some have warned that Michigan's plan to build a six-lane city boulevard risks replacing one busy roadway with another - while many longtime black residents worry they may be priced out of the city as the improvements will lead to gentrification.
This new take on speech produces a moral paradox, particularly among academics and journalists: Those who are most militant about policing what they deem to be hate speech against minorities, women, gays and trans communities are often the most tolerant of demeaning depictions, incendiary rhetoric and violent imagery against whites and men.
To those who see a double standard, such routine disparagement of masculinity and whiteness is a case study in hypocrisy that upends longstanding norms against stereotyping entire social groups. It’s a manifestation of what Columbia University linguist and social commentator John McWhorter dubbed “woke racism” in a 2021 book of the same name that warns of the dangerous spread of “the kinds of language, policies, and actions that Orwell wrote of as fiction.”
A University of Texas at Austin professor has sued Texas A&M University claiming a new faculty fellowship program designed to increase diversity at the flagship university in College Station discriminates against white and Asian male candidates.
The National Mail Voter Registration Form is used by many states to register voters. It asks for basic information like name, address, and date of birth. But WILL says the form also asks for someone’s political party, as well as seeks information on voters’ race.
Because Twilio is based in San Francisco and in the wokest city on the planet, it doesn’t matter the company actually fires white people based on their race. What matters is making people think you’re going to fire white people based on their race. That’s what gets the blood pumping and juices flowing for the good little wokesters in San Francisco. Giving voice to their shame and guilt at being so rich and white while other residents of color have so little is what Lawson’s little morality play is all about.
“I’m exhausted with these white folx in these [professional development] sessions.” Wing wrote in a July 2020 tweet, according to Fox News. This lady actually had the CAUdacity to say that black people can be racist too… I had to stop the session and give Karen the BUSINESS… [W]e are not the majority, we don’t have power.”
“Caudacity” is a slang term to describe “audacity” demonstrated by white people specifically in reference to ‘white privilege.’

Harvard is discriminating against Asian applicants in exactly the same way it did against Jewish ones, for exactly the same reasons, with exactly the same results, and exactly the same justifications. But when you look at media analysis of the issue, you get a dozen progressive think pieces about how calling this “racism” is just a conservative talking point.

> “Truth Still Matters, David can still overcome Goliath,” the Gibson family attorneys told 3News after the Ohio Supreme Court decided not to hear the appeal. “We and the Gibson family are gratified that all judges on the court of appeals and the majority of the Ohio Supreme Court recognized the rights of individuals rather than the bullying tactics of the big institutions.”
Of course, Big Media like NBC, CNN, and ESPN ran the hoax uncritically, boosting the narrative of the majority white — and Mormon — BYU being a bunch of closet kluxers.
But there are still no consequences for lying about racism, racist attacks, or “racial heckling.” In fact, the BYU statement encourages it.
Adams had originally claimed to be a descendant of a member of the Ojibwe-Lakota people/White Earth nation. Maclean’s magazine did some digging, only to discover that her grandfather was actually white. According to the Daily Mail, the Connecticut-born Adams said that the inspiration for her quilts came in visions from her ancestors, and the paper also reports that she was denied tribal membership because there was no provable ancestral link. This is particularly problematic since she was brought on board by the university as part of an initiative to hire more indigenous people, which included a vetting process.
