eventually they will ban everything "white", probably the white word itself and call it dis-black.

Apparently beating a black protestor is a line to far in St. Louis is a line too far when it turns out they are a undercover officer 'investigating' the protests.

I wonder how much was spent to move a "Racially offensive" ROCK!!!  Stupid is as stupid does.

No longer a memorial, rock removed from campus

The University of Wisconsin–Madison moved the former Chamberlin Rock, an object that had become a painful symbol of racism to generations of students, to a site off the main campus on August 6.

The rock had sat at the crest of Observatory Hill since 1925. That same year, it was referred to in a newspaper headline by a deeply offensive nickname that included a racial slur. The derogatory nickname was commonly used at the time to refer to any large, dark rock.
Last November, students testified at a meeting of the Campus Planning Committee that the continued presence of the rock was a daily reminder of the injustices, past and present, that students of color face on campus.

We all knew this was coming…I predict an epic fold to the snowflake woke. 

Pluck of the Irish: Notre Dame bites back after its leprechaun mascot is deemed one of the most 'offensive' in college sports


A survey by Quality Logo Products listed Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish leprechaun as the fourth-most offensive college football team mascot in the nation
After the results were shared, a representative from Notre Dame wrote a statement to defend its use of the leprechaun
The top three most offensive mascots were all considered culturally insensitive to Native Americans

I could try but I really can’t make this crap up….

Too White: Plaster Is Racist Now, Too

 It will erect signs to explain the whiteness of the plaster casts.  Faculty will be encouraged to include content warnings in course materials, lectures and readings.  Tutors will receive training on how to discuss sensitive issues, even if they are uncomfortable.  The present proposal is that all members of the classics faculty should be given implicit bias training every three years, and their teaching should be monitored.  Is Cambridge becoming biblical?  "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow?"

What a woke joke...

Squaw Valley, home of 1960 Winter Olympics, changes its 'racist and sexist' name - which has been used to describe Native American women since Louis and Clark in 1800s
The Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows Ski Resort in Northern California dropped the 'racist' and 'sexist' term squaw and renamed the resort
It is now called the Palisades Tahoe
It opened in 1949 and hosted the 1960 Olympics
Squaw is considered a 'racist' and 'sexist' term that referred to a Native American who provided sexual favors to white men
The name changes comes at a time when the United States is undergoing what some refer to as 'cancel culture'
The country's racial reckoning has included Native America the removal of what some consider to be offensive Native American terms
Over the last year, Washington D.C. dropped the word 'Redskins' from its football's team and the Cleveland baseball team dropping the word 'Indians

I mean, it basically means "pussy"

Would be pretty weird to have a resort called "pussy valley"

Trees (or lack there of) are now Racist...We have a tree race Gap!!! ;D ;D >:D

To understand what type of neighborhood is associated with more or less tree cover, we compared the tree canopy numbers with the median household income of each San Francisco census tract — a geographic area with about 1,200 to 8,000 residents. Overall, we found that wealthier census tracts tend to have more tree cover than lower-income tracts. On average, a census tract with a median household income of over $150,000 has 15 percent of its area covered by trees, compared to just 7 percent in a census tract with a median income of $80,000 or less.

This isn’t just an issue in San Francisco. Tree inequity exists in many U.S. cities. According to a study published in April of this year, low-income census blocks — small geographic areas equivalent to city blocks — have 15% less tree cover than high-income census blocks. A primary reason for this inequality is historical redlining and ongoing segregation within cities. A recent study showed a link between residential housing segregation from the 1930s and the size of tree canopies in several metropolitan areas. Researchers found that areas formerly graded A in neighborhood appraisal maps — the nicest neighborhoods generally inhabited by white residents — had nearly twice as much tree canopy as areas formerly graded D — areas with poor housing inhabited by racial minorities. Even today, cities are segregated by income, with wealthy families having the resources to move to areas within the city with more trees, while lower incomes families are unable to make similar moves.

I bet there’s also more grass coverage in wealthier areas.  Grass is also racist.  Flowers and shrubs, same!

The world is ending faster than I thought…the morons are in charge

Rolling Stones RETIRE 'Brown Sugar' after criticism over slavery lyrics: Keith Richards says 50-year-old song is about 'horrors' of the trade but he's tired of fighting with people 'trying to bury it' and band will not play it anymore

The British band are four gigs in to a 13-date U.S. tour, which begun in Sept 26
The rockers are yet to play Brown Sugar - their second-most played song
They last performed it live in August 2019 and have now retired the song for now
Brown Sugar's lyrics tell of slavery, rape, racism and sexual violence
Mick Jagger said the 1969 song has 'all the nasty subjects in one go'
The song was released in 1971 and is one of their most popular 
He said in 1995 that there is no way he would have written the song now
Jagger said the band decided to give the song a break, potentially returning to it

They want to kill comedy...we shouldn't let them...

‘Airplane!’ creator slams joy-killing threat: ‘Twitter 9 percent’

Last year marked the 40th anniversary of the release of “Airplane!,” the comedy I wrote and directed with my brother Jerry and our friend Jim Abrahams. Just before the world shut down, Paramount held a screening at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, followed by a Q&A in which an audience member asked a question we never used to receive: “Could you make ‘Airplane!’ today?”

My response: “Of course, we could. Just without the jokes.”

Although people tell me that they love “Airplane!” and it seems to be included on just about every Top Five movie-comedy list, there was talk at Paramount of withholding the rerelease over feared backlash for scenes that today would be deemed “insensitive.”

I’m referring to scenes like the one in which two black characters speak entirely in a jive dialect so unintelligible that it has to be subtitled. I’ve lost count of the number of people who have said to me, “You couldn’t do that scene today.”

Just a bit more comedy (although they don't think it is)... ;D ;D >:D

Three failed Miss France hopefuls SUE the pageant for selecting beauty queen contestants based on their appearance
The three former contestants have been joined by the 'Osez le feminisme' group
Plaintiffs allege that Miss France discriminates based on appearances
The feminist group said it has filed a complaint with the state labour tribunal
French labour code forbids companies from discriminating on the basis of 'morals, age, family status or physical appearance'
