Racism

Internet Rage
Take a deep breath, and count to 10 - in this day and age, a rant could get you fired!

Hate filled comments posted by a city employee in New York against a Muslim teenager on Facebook, has cost him to be suspended and may even cost him his job.

Yamin Zohny, a 17-year-old Muslim and an honor student at the Lindenhurst High School was praised in a video posted on Facebook. However, things took a bad turn, when Andy Vita, posted comments criticizing Zohny of the traditional head scarf that she was wearing in the video.

“F**k you take it to f******* trash bag off your f***** head,” and the second read, “F**k this mutt,” read one of the comment(s).

Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer was fast to condemn Vita’s action. “This is one really sick person that needs to be held accountable for his actions,” Rich Schaeffer told CBS New York. “There is going to be consequences to what you say. People have to realize when you’re posting something on Facebook of social media, it’s like putting it on a billboard on the LIE.”

“Mandated to apologize in-person to this impressive young woman and go through sensitivity training so that we can determine the cause of the hate-driven anger he displayed in his posting,” he added.

“Vita — an equipment operator — now has no comment, and there was no response at his home or from his union. He’s been suspended for a month without pay, and the town is seeking his termination for conduct unbecoming of a public employee. If he remains he will be sent to sensitivity training,” CBS reported.

Zohny, on the other hand, has been offered a paid internship with the city, before she heads off to The University of Texas at Austin for college.

She had expressed that Vita’s remarks helped her become an even better person.  “We can’t all save the world obviously, but we can help it, even the people who have not been kind to me have taught me something I’m going to take with me,” she stated.

Racial Tensions
"Just remember that all your ancestors were evil, racist, meanies... Class dismissed!"

Judy Morelock, a University of Tennessee Knoxville professor was fired after she shamed a student on social media, for so-called racist behavior.

Kayla Parker, a student at the university stated that Morelock had presented her class, including Parker, a multiple choice quiz. One of the questions, on the quiz read, ““Historical research on African-American families during slavery shows that: A) Family ties weren’t important in African cultures where the slaves’ ancestors originated; consequently, family bonds were never strong among slaves. B) Two-parent families were extremely rare during the slave period. C) Black family bonds were destroyed by the abuses of slave owners, who regularly sold off family members to other slave owners. D) Most slave families were headed by two parents.”

Parker further mentioned that she selected the option C, as her answer, however, it was marked as wrong. Morelock had advised Parker that the correct answer was option D.

To this, Parker sent the professor an email to further clarify her response and to present information backing up her answer.

As per Parker, Morelock went on to disagree with Parker. Moreover, to make matter worse, Morelock posted a version of the Parker’s email on Facebook, where she and her friends took turns discussing Parker’s viewpoint.

“I was shocked,” she wrote. “I knew it was something out of the ordinary when I saw her posting on my Facebook, because I’ve never seen a professor do that.

Parker had indicated that Morelock began “making backhanded comments directed at me.”

“For example,” she wrote, “‘Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to bring the textbook to class today because my bag is full of other texts for a student who requires further evidence on subjects I teach in class.”

Ever since, the comments had gone viral, the school removed Morelock from her position and placed her on a suspension. This did not stop Morelock. Upon her removal, she wrote on Facebook, “A student and her friends posted inflammatory, derogatory, libelous comments on her Facebook page and demeaned my character, honesty, and integrity … Nonetheless, she filed a complaint against me with [the University] administration and they decided she has the right to impugn my character but I had no right to defend myself. Consequently, I’ve been placed on administration leave and will likely be terminated this week.” Morelock was suspended soon after her post.

While Parker insisted that Morelock did not make use of any racial slurs or nicknames, she felt that the way in which Morelock reacted to her correction portrayed “racism.”

“If students can’t raise questions in class, it’s not a thriving, healthy academic institution,” she wrote. “College is supposed to be a place where you can agree and disagree and have intellectual discussions and that’s all I was trying to do.”

Spelling Bee
"You want me to spell that?!"

The host of CNN’s New Day, Alisyn Camerota, was seen making a very insensitive and racist remark to twelve year old girl while interviewing her; after she had won the national spelling bee.

Camerota and co-host jokingly asked Ananya Vinay, to spell the word “covfefe;” while interviewing the young girl of Indian origin after her big win at the Scripps National Spelling Be competition, one of the most recognized spelling competitions within the USA.

“Covfefe” was an accidental typo made by President Donald Trump, on one of his many tweets on Twitter. Ever since the tweet was published, it has gone viral with memes and jokes of all sort being based upon it.

Vinay attempted to spell the impossible, she left out the “v.”  To this, Camerota chimed in and called it a “nonsense word.” However, the worst happened when she went to remark Vinay about not being sure as whether the root of the word comes Sanskrit, “which is probably what you’re used to using.”

It is has been noted that while Vinay’s family origin is from India, she is actually from Fresno, California.

Moreover, Vinay’s family is of Kerala-origin and the primary language spoken in Kerala is Malayalam, and definitely not Sanskrit. In fact, Sanskrit is only spoken by less than one percent of Indians today and that too usually by Hindu priests during religious ceremonies.

A spokeswoman for CNN spoke with the Washington Post and said otherwise. She stated that Camoreta’s comment had nothing to do with Ananya’s heritage.

“Alisyn made the same joking reference to the root of ‘covfefe’ in an earlier panel discussion that aired Wednesday,” she told the Washington Post.

“If she’s guilty of anything it’s recycling a joke. To assign a bias to what was a fun and innocent segment celebrating Ananya Vinay’s incredible accomplishment is frankly extremely cynical.”

Sorry white girl. You're outta luck.

The American University in Washington, D.C., has agreed to allow black students an extension on their final exams all while preserving a “sanctuary for people of color.” All of this, came following an alleged racially charged incident that led to student protests.

Last week, it was reported that the campus was decorated with bananas hung in nooses with the letters “AKA” and the word “Harambe” written on them. “AKA,” the acronym for the black sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha.

The student group organized a protest in response to this incident, as a scheduled meeting between black leaders of campus and the school’s administration was rescheduled. The students blocked the traffic and set certain demands for school administrators.

The protestors laid out three major demands, as mentioned by Campus Reform:

“ ‘For the remaining [sic] of the semester, the Bridge will become a sanctuary for people of color,’ the ultimatum begins, referring to a student café and lounge on campus.Students also demanded that ‘all POC [persons of color] students get extensions, and should not be penalized for already scheduled finals after the incident,’ arguing that the racist incident on campus has distressed many students to the point that they are unable to focus on exams.The final demand calls for a ‘separate investigation team based out of the university (composed of a group of non-biased expert contractors) that can investigate cases of racism and discrimination brought against the institution of American University.’”

Freshman Jaha Knight stated, “These are the things that we have demanded from the university because of the oppression and discrimination and the hate we have faced, not just in these current events, but every day on this campus.”

American University Provost Scott Bass reportedly arrived at the scene and verbally agreed to the demands. “There’s nothing more important, in terms of my administration, than being a multicultural campus,” Bass said to the protesters.

“We are interested in getting to the bottom of the issue, and the sooner we can do that, the better,” he continued. “But I will also say that that doesn’t stop our commitment to do more. This is just a minimum. … This is not just one incident. It’s a deeper issue in our community.”

Are they controlling you?

During a quiet Sunday evening, I thumbed through my Instagram feed to find an image of a button that read, “No Nazis, No KKK, No Racist USA.” The three lines where followed by an upside down American flag – the sign of distress.

The man who posted the button, Canadian Chef and celebrity among hipsters and millennials, Matty Matheson, threw in the hastags, #IFTHISUPSETSYOU #URARACIST.

NO NAZIS. NO KKK. NO RACIST USA. ?????????? #JESSEBHARRIS #IFTHISUPSETSYOU #URARACIST

A photo posted by MATTY MATHESON (@mattymatheson) on

While I’m not one to engage in back-and-forth flame wars on social media, I had to go off on this guy . . . to the point that he had to post a video of himself visibly upset and asking “racists” to unfollow him.

A MESSAGE TO MY RACIST FOLLOWERS ????

A video posted by MATTY MATHESON (@mattymatheson) on

The happily obese chef, who has a show on Viceland, then blocked my Instragram account to prevent future humiliation.

While the exchange and Matheson’s reaction was all fun and good, the reaction of the chef and his followers was eye-opening.

These people truly believe that if you disagree with their unjustified hatred of Trump, America, White people, etc., you are an unabashed racist.

Not to pull out my own race card, but I’m Native American . . . a card-carrying tribal member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation.

While I could easily throw on an eagle’s feather, grow a ponytail and start crying about the historical oppression of “my people” the truth is my bloodline has never affected my life.

I, like any other minority, am responsible for my own success and my own failures.

Having been raised in an integrated society where race really was a non-issue (growing up I attended an “all black” high school and didn’t think anything of it), to be labeled a racist without justification will make your blood boil the first time it happens.

But upon the 139th time you’re called a racist, you consider the source, take a step back and realize that using the “R” word is simply a tactic by the left to control and silence opposition.

While the tactic is not new, since the election of Donald Trump, the racism tactic is being used on the onset of nearly every disagreement.

As Matty Matheson stated through his use of hashtags, “If this upsets you, you’re a racist.”

But the Left’s overuse and abuse of the racist label, like oversaturation of any sort, has lost its power.

For those who have seen the movie, The Dark Knight Rises, you may recall a scene were the sympathetic villain, Bane, stands before a slimy corporate executive.

Bane asks the suited man, “Do you feel in charge?”

The corporate executive sheepishly responds, “I’ve paid you a small fortune.”

Bane boldly responds, “And this gives you power over me?”

Applying the liberal “racist” tactic to that scene, it would go like this:

Bane asks the outraged liberal, “Do you feel in charge?”

The snowflake sheepishly responds, “bu, bu, but, I’ve called you a racist.”

Bane boldly responds, “And this gives you power over me?”

The left has lost its ability to debate because it refuses to trade in facts and reasonable policy arguments; instead it pedals intimidation tactics, and now, violence.

While we don’t have to snap anyone’s neck like Bane would do, recognize that these ultimate insults are designed to control you, but in reality, have no power over your freedom of speech or expression.

There seems to be a new desire from the people on the progressive left to call anyone that has country pride or likes Trump a racist.

A London shopkeeper is being called a racist for having a British focused store. A man opened a store that hired local people that sold British-themed souvenirs. That is all he had to do in order to be called a racist.

The owner spoke to the local Hamsptead & Highgate Express local newspaper about one of the “racist” encounters.

“The shop is in no way meant to be political or pro-Brexit but we have had a lot of complaints saying it is or we are racist. A guy came in the other day and said, ‘What’s this, a charity shop?’ We said, ‘No, not at all’ and he said, ‘Well it’s racist’ and stormed out.”

Unfortunately, being called a racist for supporting your country is not just in England.

An American university took down the American flag to not offend any students. –

It doesn’t stop there. Apparently you can also be racist if you voted for Trump.

The left lost in the UK with Brexit in a shocking fashion. The left lost in America to Trump in a shocking fashion. Maybe it is time the left stops calling everyone racist and they might be able to win occasionally.

Is anyone that has country pride a racist? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

racist

A teacher at a high school in Norman, Oklahoma is teaching his students that “to be white is racist”, but that isn’t the worst part.

The unidentified teacher began a lecture talking about the mistreatment of Native Americans when a student started recording the lecture.

What the student recorded is making parents nervous all around the United States.

After rambling for a short time about what white people did to America and Native Americans, he really got into the meat of his lesson.

“To be white is to be racist, period. Am I racist? I say yea. I don’t want to be. It’s not like choose to be racist, but do I do things because of the way I was raised?”

According to this teacher, all you have to do to be racist is to be white, and this was actually taught in an American school.

The student who recorded the lecture wants to remain anonymous, but said she was offended because she was half Hispanic and didn’t like being called a racist.

After the student showed her parents the recording, they went directly to the school and to the media.

There is no report yet on the educator and if he is still teaching students that “to be white is racist.”

Do you think you are a racist if you are white? Let us know in the comments below.

shooting

Over the weekend, Baltimore saw a horrible shooting that left 9 people wounded including a little girl, but why were there not protests like Charlotte?

A group of people were hanging outside when three gunmen, two with handguns and one with a shotgun, intentionally ran up and started shooting.

During the ambush one woman and seven men were injured plus one little three-year-old girl. Everyone was given care and they all are expected to live, but where is Black Lives Matter?

In Charlotte, the police shot a man that had a gun and resisted the officers warnings, yet protests have continued six days.

Could it be that everyone survived in Baltimore or they didn’t have the organization to plan a protest?

Maybe nobody protested because it was three black criminals that shot up the barbeque. Maybe it was because this was possibly a revenge shooting, and the little girl that got shot was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The truth is, Black Lives Matter is not am organization that supports black people, it is an organization that is anti-cop.

The only time BLM organizes a protest is when a police officer, white or black, shoots and kills a black person.

It is obvious that Black Lives Matter doesn’t think that black lives matter because they would rather protest the 150 or so police shootings a year than dealing with the fact that over 50% of the murders in the USA are committed by 14% of the population.

Black lives do matter in America, but not to Black Lives Matter. The organization is more focused on attacking police than they are actually helping their culture.

Look at this video of the “peaceful protests” in Charlotte instigated and led by the Black Lives Matter supporters to get a better understanding of what happened in Charlotte.

It is time for America to reject Black Lives Matter until they start proving they really believe that black lives matter.

Bieber dreadlocks

When Justin Bieber, the young pop star who has had his share of idiot moments, showed off his new blonde dreadlocks, the liberal piranhas came out.

Notice the very telling and racist hashtag, #StopWhitePeople2016

Some people didn’t worry about the racist implications. They just wanted him dead.

The backlash for the Beibs changing his hair is to be expected, but the cultural appropriation is just crazy. People are saying that Black people are seen unkempt and are categorized as druggies if they have dreadlocks, but if a white guy does it, then it’s cool!

That argument just doesn’t work, because Justin Bieber looks like a druggie and unkempt. Sorry, but he does.

In the Beib’s defense, he did grow up in a culture where dreadlocks were part of it. He grew up in the American culture where we encourage self-expression and equal rights. Since he was a kid he worked in a very diverse industry. Dreadlocks are part of Justin’s culture and you can’t take that away from him.

“Ironically” the attack on civil liberties is coming from the left and it is okay because the attacks are against white people. White people have to pay. #StopWhitePeople2016

Once we start getting into stealing each other’s culture, then we all are going to be left with nothing. Imagine being white and not being able to eat a taco or listen to Ray Charles. Imagine being black not being able to eat pasta or watch baseball. Imagine being Latino and not being able to eat a hamburger or fly a plane. What about space? White people found space and explored it first, is that theirs?

This whole thing is just ridiculous and the fact that it is being pushed by the left, whose presidential front runner is under FBI criminal investigation, is just embarrassing.

star wars

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry–a favorite of the liberal Left–went on a tirade about the so-called “racism” in Star Wars.

According to Harris-Perry, who is black, the series’ supremely evil villain Darth Vader was “totally a black guy.”

“While he was black he was terrible and bad, awful and used to cut off white men’s hand, and didn’t actually claim his son,” she said. “But as soon as he claims his son, goes over to the good, takes off his mask and he is white.”

Angry, she added, “Yes, I have many feelings about that.”

While Darth Vader technically wears black armor–and is, in fact, voiced by a black man, James Earl Jones, whose voice was added in the post-production editing of the film–it’s a stretch to claim that his “color” is explicit racism on the part of series creator George Lucas. When his helmet comes off, and he’s revealed to be a white man–which makes sense, considering his two children are white–it’s also not necessarily a statement of his “becoming a white man,” either.

In fact, in the more-recent prequel trilogy that depicts a younger Darth Vader (a white man, played by Hayden Christensen), he gets progressively more corrupted. And remains white.

Harris-Perry, who portrays herself as a journalist, has grown infamous for her ability to see the racial “injustice” in just about anything.

Now? It looks like she’s taking offense at one of the most successful and beloved film franchises of all time–simply because the villain happens to wear black armor for much of the film.
