There’s good news this week for Marlon Anderson, the black security guard at a high school in Wisconsin who earlier this month lost his job after telling a combative student who was calling him the n-word to stop using the word.

The Associated Press reports:

MADISON, Wis. — A Wisconsin school district is rehiring a black security guard after he was fired last week for repeating a racial slur while telling a student not to use it, a union official said Monday.

Doug Keillor, executive director of Madison Teachers Inc., said that the union was contacted by school officials Monday saying interim Superintendent Jane Belmore decided to rescind the firing of Marlon Anderson.

Anderson said in a Facebook post Monday afternoon, “I’m back!!” He said he learned of his rehiring while at his new job Monday.

“Thank you to the 1,000 plus students for allowing your voices to be heard and to all the people from across the globe for reaching out to my family,” Anderson said in his post.

I'm back!! While at work today at Boys & Girls Clubs, I learned from the Madison Teachers Union President that School…

Posted by Marlon Anderson on Monday, October 21, 2019

Anderson told multiple media outlets last week that the school dismissed him after a situation involving a black student quickly became volatile:

[Marlon] Anderson told NBC News on Friday that after a black student repeatedly called him a n—–, he asked the student last week to stop.

This week, Anderson said he learned that school officials terminated his employment, citing a zero tolerance policy on the use of derogatory language by staff members.

“My understanding of the policy was white staff shouldn’t use the N-word under any circumstances,” Anderson said. “But I had no idea me being called the word and me telling the student not to call me the word would get me fired.”

Having a “zero tolerance” policy on the n-word is one thing, but enforcing it by way of firing a black man for telling a student to stop using it on him was just over the top.

Fortunately, Anderson didn’t give up on the job he loved. Not only that, but students, faculty, and the community reacted to the news he was fired by showering him with support. A local boys and girls club location even gave him a temporary job just so he could make ends meet while the appeals process with the school district ran its course.

Watch the emotional interview he did with WFMY last week on what he went through, and how he describes hearing students use the word all the time:

The Madison Metropolitan school district is reportedly reviewing their zero tolerance policy in light of this incident.

Journalists are Amused by the Irony of Canadian PM ‘Jussie Trudeau’ Winning a Minority Government

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau managed to squeak out a narrow victory on Monday night, winning a minority government. Trudeau prevailed over his Conservative rival, Andrew Scheer, to win a second term. Late polls showed a very tight race.

Given the numerous photos and videos showing Trudeau in black and brown face that surfaced in the months leading up to the election, many journalists are having a little fun with the fact that he has won a minority government.

Conservative icon Michelle Malkin, who refers to the Prime Minister as “Jussie Trudeau,” tweeted that “Jussie Trudeau is now a real minority — and he doesn’t have to wear blackface!”

Twitchy points out that the New York Times‘ headline states that Trudeau’s party will lose its House of Commons majority, rather than saying Trudeau won a minority government.

Other media outlets, such as CP24 (above) and AFP News relished the irony of it all and couldn’t resist.

Here are some responses to the news by twitter users (via Twitchy):

Someone explain to Justin that minority here does not mean he has to go shoe polish shopping

Trudeau finally gets to be a real minority.

Congrats to Canada for re-electing its first black PM.

I see what you did there…

For those who may have missed the photos.

And finally, “That face when you’re ’bout to form a minority gov.”

Can you imagine if even a single photo emerged of President Trump wearing black face?

Beto O’Rourke Told a Room Full of Democrats That You – Yes You – Are a Racist

Democratic 2020 candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke is so woke that he’s officially become the wokest candidate among the pack. What’s more, he can’t wait to show you how woke he is.

While addressing the Alabama Democratic Conference’s semi-annual convention in Birmingham, Alabama, O’Rourke showed you just how racist he’s not by pointing out that everyone in America is a racist country because it’s racist at its foundations.

Bold strategy, Cotton.

“Despite my obvious pride in the role my community played in the civil rights history of America, despite what I think we represent to this country and the rest of the world — about the genius of America being able to integrate people who come from everywhere and call this country home…this country, though we may not be in El Paso, Texas, is still racist at its foundation, at its core, and throughout history,” said O’Rourke.

His calling this country “racist” naturally received applause from the Democrat attendees.

It’s odd to me that we still hear this kind of rhetoric from Democrats who currently govern a country where they elect minorities on both sides of the aisle. Democrats who live in a country where we just recently had a black president. Where we have celebrities, athletes, and business owners of every shade of skin color and ethnic background.

The institutional racism O’Rourke is mentioning here is nonexistent. A country that is racist at its core wouldn’t allow for any of the above. While it’s clear that many minority communities have their struggles, blaming it on some nebulous spirit of racism is like saying it rains because it does. The social justice left that O’Rourke belongs to would rather commit to the narrative that bad things happen to minorities because of racism, and not really look at the underlying causes as to why.

But the most insulting part is that in order for a country to be racist, there have to be practicers of racism. According to O’Rourke, that’s you. You’re racist. Maybe you don’t think you are, or maybe you don’t mean to be, but O’Rourke and woke Democrats like him are here to tell you that you’re just the worst.

In short, he thinks you’re horrible and that the only way to fix you is to give him power over you.

Trump’s Policies are Making Black Women Obese, ‘Kill Our People,’ Says Angry (Obese) Rutgers Gender Studies Professor

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-20-at-8.03.28-AM-620x504 Trump’s Policies are Making Black Women Obese, ‘Kill Our People,’ Says Angry (Obese) Rutgers Gender Studies Professor racism Race President Trump Front Page Stories Featured Story Allow Media Exception

Last month, Rutgers University gender studies professor Brittany Cooper appeared on an episode of the Oprah network’s show “Black Women OWN the Conversation.” She participated in a panel discussion about why so many black women are obese.

In case any of you missed it, she made the connection between President Trump’s policies and obesity rates among black women. Speaking to an audience of 100 black women, Cooper said, “I hate when people talk about black women being obese. I hate it, because it becomes a way to blame us for a set of conditions that we didn’t create. We are living in the Trump era. And look, those policies kill our people. You can’t get access to good health care, good insurance.”

She told the group that when black women follow the same diet as white women, “we lose less weight and we lose it slower.” According to Cooper, “public health practitioners think that our stress responses in the body change our metabolism.”

Drumroll, please. Wait for it.

“It’s literally that the racism you are experiencing and the struggle to make ends meet actually means the diet don’t work for you the same.”

The women in the audience all nod in agreement.

Leading the panel was a very fit young black woman. My heart rose for a moment when she said, “It’s also important for us to note that we have the power,” but fell when she completed her sentence with “to choose how we see ourselves.” What?

She continued “We will be fortified to fight all of these external issues when we pour into ourselves enough to say, ‘I love me. I’m not the conditions that surround me. I am not my experience. I am more than the circumstances I have gone through.”

To say that Trump’s policies are responsible for the obesity of black women is, obviously, ridiculous. I searched the internet for any year-over-year comparisons to see if obesity has increased over the last three years among this demographic, but was unable to find any up-to-date studies.

Studies do show that obesity is disproportionately higher for black women than any other group. Four out of five are considered to be obese. And obesity rates have increased in the U.S. overall in the past two decades.

But these women are preaching a victim mentality. It is self-defeating and it is dangerous. How about instead of telling these women “It’s also important for us to note that we have the power to choose how we see ourselves,” you tell them ‘it’s also important for us to note that we have the power to choose what we put into our mouths, to go out for a walk once a day or to go to the gym.’

To blame obesity on race is self-defeating. To blame obesity on President Trump’s policies is insane.

The U.S. economy is the healthiest it’s been in years. The unemployment rate, both overall and among blacks, is the lowest it’s been in half a century. I doubt very much that economic pressure among blacks has increased in the last three years.

Putting aside any Trump connections, instead of giving these young women excuses for their obesity, thereby perpetuating the cycle, why not tell them it doesn’t have to remain this way?

I know. We are living in the era of Trump. And everyone is a victim.

Black High School Security Guard Booted After Warning Black Student Not to Call Him The N-Word Gets Good News

In a clear case of a zero tolerance policy running amok, a black security guard at a high school in Madison, Wisconsin was canned this week because he told a confrontational student to stop calling him the n-word.

NBC News reports:

[Marlon] Anderson told NBC News on Friday that after a black student repeatedly called him a n—–, he asked the student last week to stop.

This week, Anderson said he learned that school officials terminated his employment, citing a zero tolerance policy on the use of derogatory language by staff members.

“My understanding of the policy was white staff shouldn’t use the N-word under any circumstances,” Anderson said. “But I had no idea me being called the word and me telling the student not to call me the word would get me fired.”
[…]
The school board president said officials would review the district’s policies.

“We’ve taken a tough stance on racial slurs, and we believe that language has no place in schools,” the board president, Gloria Reyes, said in a statement.

So the best approach to fighting racial slurs in school is to fire a black employee who used the word in the context of telling a black student not to call him that same word?

That. is. crazy.

Here’s an email that was sent from the school district to parents about what happened, noting an incident involving “a staff member using a racial slur with students.” It also stated that the staff member “will not” be returning to the school, and stipulates there are no exceptions to the rule:

Fortunately for Anderson, there’s light at the end of the tunnel. After appealing the school’s decision, he had a temporary job offer. So now he’ll be able to earn a living while he awaits word on his appeal:

The Boys and Girls Clubs of Dane County offered a job to a security guard who was recently fired from his position as a security guard at Madison West High School.
[…]
“Marlon Anderson has an amazing track record working with local teens,” The Boys and Girls Clubs of Dane County said in a Facebook post. “We are pleased to welcome Marlon to this temporary position until his appeal is finalized by Madison Metropolitan School District.”

Thanks to the widespread outcry from students, staff, and the community, that appeals process is being expedited, which is great news.

If two trains leave Tulsa at 3 p.m., 1 traveling at 75 mph and the other 85, and if the first goes east and the other west, how long will it take for them to be 487 miles apart?

The answer: White cisgender b*st*rds have systematically subjugated all others through social constructs and capitalistic manifestations of the inherent patriarchal evil.

Perhaps you haven’t learned the new math, but there’s a lot of it goin’ ’round.

Just see: “Seattle Public Education Posts Its White-Privilege ‘Math Ethnic Studies Framework,’ And It Just May Blow Your Mind

But for those of you who understand that objectivity is outdated and not subscribing to microagressions is a microagression and commiting a microagression is a macroagression, do we have a job for you.

Dr. Kate Clancy is offering the opportunity of a lifetime to one lucky “anti-racist, intersectional feminist biologist” jonesing for a PhD.

If you’ve always wanted to study how…

Well, I’ll just let her tell it:

“Are you an anti-racist, intersectional feminist biologist looking for an awesome lab in which to get your PhD? Want to study how environmental stressors (including those from structural racism/sexism) influence women’s & gender diverse people’s reproductive function?”

She’s nothing if not specific. Because, what if you were a racist intersectional feminist biologist? Wrong fit.

But if you’ve got the goods, she’s sittin’ on go to “advocate for you”:

According to her Twitter profile, Kate’s an associate professor at the University of Illinois. Her interests: “Harassment, discrimination, stress, and menstrual cycles.”

Apparently, she also hosts the Period Podcast, “a podcast about ladypart science.”

And if you’re worried about sexual violence in the world, Kate’s fixing it:

As for the job opening, she’s got some interest:

“Can I get a second PhD? Because I think I would love that environment!”

“I mean… it’s too late for me. But are you looking for postdocs?”

“Is the fall start strict? I have a current masters student who would be really interested in this, but doesn’t finish until end of 2020!”

“If this had been two years ago I would have been there in a second! Doing my PhD already but if/when you’re looking for a post doc in a few years, you’ll hear from me so quick”

Some naysayers got serious:

“Dr. Clancy, you should come see the institutional racism and slaughter of whites in South Africa. Some liberals calls it payback. Was never this bad under Apartheid though. Read the book “Kill the Boer” by Ernst Roets.”

“Makes me highly suspicious of your work. The study of biology should have no political leaning, and to recruit on ideological bent is a huge red flag. I knew this crap was in the humanities, but it seems it’s metastasising…”

“If you had any sense whatsoever you would completely and utterly ashamed of yourself for spreading this ideological excrement. It is truly a a clear indication of a deep disorder of the mind.”

And there was this head-scratcher:

But then there were these:

And this:

I’m posting this one mostly for the screen name:

And just in case you’re interested in the opening but intimidated by Kate’s academic disposition, she’s a chick who can get casual with the best of ’em:

Hillary: British tabloids might be a wee bit racist in targeting Markle

Westlake Legal Group hillary-view Hillary: British tabloids might be a wee bit racist in targeting Markle The Blog tabloids Royal Family racism meghan markle Hillary Clinton

Finally, the Brits have their own reason to feel annoyed at Hillary Clinton. For some reason, the former top diplomat decided to weigh in on a controversy involving the press and the royals in an interview with the Times of London. While doing a press tour for her new book Gutsy Women, Hillary accused the tabloids of unfairly scrutinizing former American Meghan Markle, and said she believes the now-princess’ biracial ethnicity is at least part of the reason:

Hillary Clinton defended Meghan Markle in a new interview, saying her biracial background “certainly” played a role in the British tabloids’ harsh treatment of her.

“I do want to say that the way she’s been treated is inexplicable,” the former Secretary of State told The Sunday Times of London in an interview.

“If the explanation is that she’s biracial, then shame on everybody,” Clinton said — adding she believes race is “certainly part of it.”

First of all, whether it’s true or not, why is Hillary Clinton lecturing Brits over their alleged latent racism? It’s as much a non-sequitur as having Boris Johnson or David Cameron drop by to lecture us on whatever wokeness deficiency they might see among Americans. Whether or not it’s factual is almost beside the point. How would they grasp the issue without living here to know the parameters of the issue? It’s cultural imperialism of the kind over which we actually do get lectured by our elites.

Anyway, the charge is almost impossible to verify, plus it ignores decades of rabid coverage and criticism of the royals long before Markle showed up on the scene. British tabloids have hounded royals without shame or ethics at least since Charles courted Diana, and the tabloids literally chased Diana to her death 22 years ago. It’s not difficult to believe that the tabloids are treating Markle unfairly, but they’ve been doing that with royals for a very long time without needing racism as animus. One would imagine that Markle would have understood that before marrying into the highest-profile, most privileged family in the West, if not the world.

And let’s not pretend that the royals aren’t playing the media at the same time. Prince Harry and Princess Meghan have been doing publicity for a show that will air this weekend titled Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, a show that includes exclusive looks at their baby Archie. The show also airs their side of the couple’s fight against the tabloids while at the same time serving as a platform for their self-promotion. If the British tabloids treated anyone else outside of the royal family unfairly, would they also get an ITV Sunday night PR film to set the record straight?

If the royals want to use accusations of racism as a brush-back pitch, that might be one thing. Why Hillary feels the need to inject herself into that feud is impossible to grasp, unless it’s out of solidarity from one self-regarded royal to another.

SJWs Are Now Going After Dungeons & Dragons for a Very Stupid Reason

Westlake Legal Group dungeons-and-dragons-4413056_960_720-620x465 SJWs Are Now Going After Dungeons & Dragons for a Very Stupid Reason uninclusive Social Justice SJW Sexism racism Politics Front Page Stories Featured Story Entertainment Dungeons and Dragons D&D Allow Media Exception

One of two things has to be true about social justice warriors and the things they complain about.

Either they’ve never played the games or experienced the media they’re “outraged” about, or they live so deeply in their own world that it puts them into a sort of psychosis, forcing them to see a “reality” that is starkly different from actual reality.

This happens with everything. Movies, video games, and comic books are all pegged by social justice warriors “racist,” or “homophobic,” or “sexist,” or “uninclusive.”

All of these claims are demonstrably false. Nerd culture specifically has been nothing but inclusive, seeing as how nerds have always been a subculture that has almost been forced to stick together. People forget that before being a nerd became cool in the present day, being one meant you were going to be the target of ridicule and, likely, a little bit of violence. Nerds found their clique because companionship is needed, in part, for their own sanity.

One thing nerds loved to do is play Dungeons & Dragons and, wouldn’t you know it, just like every other thing nerds hold dear, it’s now come under attack by the SJW crowd too for being “uninclusive.”

By Gygax, the claims by this woman are ridiculous by the premise alone.

When it first became popular, people thought it was some kind of demon worship. It wasn’t, but it was also looked down on as incredibly nerdy. Over time, the game became more popular, and despite the fact that there are video games that allow you to play games like D&D without all the dice rolling and math, it still remains a popular game to play today.

I should know, as I’m one of those nerds who like to play D&D.

I like it because it becomes more than just a game. You’re hanging out with your friends, drinking, and joking around while you use your imaginations to solve problems and create stories on the fly. What’s more, all of the D&D games I’ve played, with the exception of one, had a mixed bag of people.

Men, women, lesbians, Hispanic people, black people, right-wing, left-wing, and more have all been in my D&D sessions. Like most nerdy things, there’s such a wide array of people involved in it that the word “uninclusive” has never been something I’ve associated with it.

I’ve never, in my life, seen someone forming a D&D group say that someone wasn’t invited because of what they were born as. Not once. Ever.

I’m not saying it hasn’t happened, and perhaps this woman has been excluded from games before, but I’m willing to bet it was because of one of two things. Perhaps it was because it was a group of men wanting to form a men’s only game, which is perfectly fine. Men and women should be able to form groups of exclusively men or women if they so choose.

Or second, and most likely, this woman is an annoying bore who is so caught up in identity politics that the group just didn’t want her around, killing the buzz.

And fair enough.

But this is more than just one woman. This is the BBC making this claim that D&D is uninclusive. Why?

Because social justice politics demands it has a seat at every table, no matter what that table is, in order to force anyone at that table to act and speak a certain way. While they’re attempting to force Dungeons & Dragons players to adhere to the rules of social justice etiquette, they’re also in the sports world, attempting to force football players to do the same.

This isn’t just a take over of nerd culture, it’s a takeover of the culture, period. Nothing is safe, everything will be attacked. Everything is up for infiltration and alteration.

This is what SJWs do. It doesn’t matter if their excuses for doing so are demonstrably false.

Little Girl Busts Justin Trudeau With Awkward Question: ‘Why Did You Paint Your Face Brown?’

Screenshot from this video

Liberal Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been making the rounds of media events, trying to make amends, since he became embroiled in a blackface scandal, prior to the election for PM on October 21.

One stop was on the Facebook Watch show, “New Mom, Who Dis?.”

But when the interviewer gave one of the little girls the opportunity to ask him a question, she did. The little girl asked, “Why did you paint your face brown?”

“Ooh! Um, it was something I shouldn’t have done because it hurt people,” Trudeau replied. “Um, it’s not something that you should do and that is something that I learnt. I didn’t know it back then but I know it now, and I’m sorry that I hurt people.”

Noticeably, he failed to answer the “why” part of her question. Nor did he explain why he didn’t know that as a 29 year old man or why he had repeated incidents of blackface including one with his pants apparently stuffed.

The little girl had a follow-up. “But did you paint your nose and your hands brown?”

“Mmm, hmm, yeah,” Trudeau responded affirmatively. “And it was the wrong thing to do.”

Trudeau then gave a lecture.

From Fox News:

“And I had a good conversation with my kids around taking responsibility for my mistakes and making sure that we’re always sticking up for each other and not teasing each other and being respectful towards each other.

“And I’m sorry that I hurt you as well. I’m sorry that I hurt kids who … face teasing and discrimination because of the color of their skin. That’s just not right in this country or anywhere around the world. We all have to work together to make sure that that doesn’t happen.”

As The Post Millennial explained, the show is a pre-taped, written and rehearsed show, which means that the question was likely staged for him to use as another way to explain himself.

But even considering that, the explanation was awkward and fell flat. And lecturing others for something he says he did wrong is just a bit precious.

Does wokeness not add up to you?

If you think 2 + 2 = 4, you might just be a sick oppressive b*st*rd.

As reported by The American Conservative, the Seattle public school system is teaching kids that math is more than numbers and objective reality. It’s also about, well, I’ll let the curriculum tell you.

The AC’s article links to the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction site, which lists its mission as follows:

The goal of Washington’s K–12 education system is to prepare every student for post-secondary pathways, careers, and civic engagement. Led by Superintendent Chris Reykdal, OSPI is the primary agency charged with overseeing public K–12 education in Washington state. Working with the state’s 295 public school districts and 6 state-tribal education compact schools, OSPI allocates funding and provides tools, resources, and technical assistance so every student in Washington is provided a high-quality public education.

And how do they “prepare” students?

A “K-12 Math Ethnic Studies Framework” curriculum page posted in August reveals that it covers “Origins, Identity, and Agency,” defined as the following:

Origins, Identity and Agency, as defined by ethnic studies, is the ways in which we view ourselves as mathematicians and members of broader mathematical communities. Mathematical theory and application is rooted in the ancient histories of people and empires of color. All human endeavors include mathematical thinking; from humanities to the arts to the sciences.

Or, as MyNorthwest puts it, the syllabus “explains math as a racist study used to oppress students — and if you correct a student’s faulty math logic, you’re guilty.”

Another theme of the outline — Power and Oppression:

Power and oppression, as defined by ethnic studies, are the ways in which individuals and groups define mathematical knowledge so as to see “Western” mathematics as the only legitimate expression of mathematical identity and intelligence. This definition of legitimacy is then used to disenfranchise people and communities of color. This erases the historical contributions of people and communities of color.

Here are the theme’s “learning targets”:

  • SWBAT analyze the ways in which ancient mathematical knowledge has been appropriated by Western culture.
  • SWBAT identify how the development of mathematics has been erased from learning in school.
  •  SWBAT identify how math has been and continues to be used to oppress and marginalize people and communities of color.
  • SWBAT explain how math and technology and/or science are connected and how technology and/or science have been and continues to be used to oppress and marginalize people and communities of color.
  • SWBAT critique systems of power that deny access to mathematical knowledge to people and communities of color.
  • SWBAT identify the inherent inequities of the standardized testing system used to oppress and marginalize people and communities of color.
  • SWBAT explain how math has been used to exploit natural resources.
  • SWBAT explain how math dictates economic oppression.

The theme of History of Resistance and Liberation, which explores “the stories, places, and people who helped liberate people and communities of color using math, engineering, and technology,” offers more of the same.

Finally, the curriculum’s Reflection and Action theme celebrates “a sense of advocacy, empowerment, and action in the students that creates internal motivation to engage in and contribute to their identities as mathematicians. Students will be confident in their ability to construct & decode mathematical knowledge, truth, and beauty so they can contribute to their experiences and the experiences of people in their community.”

This isn’t Seattle’s first move toward UltraWoke education. In 2006, as relayed by Seattle Weekly, the school system declared an official definition of racism to teach students:

The systematic subordination of members of targeted racial groups who have relatively little social power in the United States (Blacks, Latinos/as, Native Americans, and Asians), by members of the agent racial group who have relatively more social power (Whites). The subordination is supported by the actions of individuals, cultural norms and values, and the institutional structures and practices of society.

So there ya go.

If you wanna get educated these days, you gotta go way beyond reading, writing, and ‘rithmetic.  Or, possibly, around them.

When it comes to math, you’re never going to get there ’til you realize White = Evil.
