Correcting someone’s grammar is now racist

Note: This post was originally published on December 15, 2013, but it was disappeared after WordPress took down this blog, Fellowship of the Minds, on August 15, 2018. Although I have been able to restore most of our posts by retrieving them from our “Draft Posts” folder and republishing them one by one, this post is among a handful that are irretrievable. Fortunately, I was able to find this post on the net because it had been re-blogged on other sites, including FromTheTrenchesWorldReport. I am, therefore, republishing this post today.

Did you know that if a professor — whose job supposedly is to teach — corrects a student’s grammar, he is being raaaaaacist?

Of course, the “someone” who is corrected must be a “person of color” — not just any color, but a person of dark skin color.  

The plain truth is that in today’s America, under the sway of Leftwing Tyranny, criticizing a person of color about ANYTHING is being racist.

That’s what Val Rust, a professor emeritus of education and information studies at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), discovered.

Robby Soave reports for The Daily Caller, Nov. 26, 2013, that members of an UCLA student group, Call 2 Action: Graduate Students of Color, launched a sit-in protest against Professor Rust because he had the temerity to — GASP! – correct the grammar, punctuation and capitalization in “minority” students’ assignments.

According to Inside Higher Education, some 25 students participated in the sit-in, including five of the 10 members of Professor Rust’s class. The protesters wrote this statement to the college:

A hostile campus climate has been the norm for Students of Color in this class throughout the quarter as our epistemological and methodological commitments have been repeatedly questioned by our classmates and our instructor. [The] barrage of questions by white colleagues and the grammar ‘lessons’ by the professor have contributed to a hostile class climate.

As an example of Rust’s egregious racism, Ph.D. student and sit-in organizer Kenjus Watson, said the professor told one student that she should not capitalize the word “indigenous” (as in “indigenous” or native American) in her papers. Watson claimed the correction was “ideologically motivated,” whatever that means.

Rust, who was guest-lecturing in China at the time of the sit-in, sent a letter to his colleagues in the education department, saying he meant no offense to “minorities”: “I have attempted to be rather thorough on the papers and am particularly concerned that they do a good job with their bibliographies and citations, and these students apparently don’t feel that is appropriate.”

Rust also apologized for making matters worse by not aggressively and proactively taking the side of a “minority” student who was engaged in an argument with a white female student. The minority student told the woman that she had no right to feel oppressed, and Rust did not express agreement either way.

Rust wrote:

Two weeks ago a Student of Color and a white female student got into a big discussion. She wants to use Standpoint Theory [a method of analysis coined by feminist sociologist Dorothy Smith, based on the idea that all knowledge is subjective and based on one’s position in society] in her dissertation, and the Student of Color told her she had no business claiming that she was a member of an oppressed group. She came back saying there are all kinds of oppression. I likely did not handle the situation well, because I chose not to stop the discussion between them, so it went on for quite a while, and the Students of Color apparently interpreted my silence to mean I wasn’t supporting them.

Here’s Professor Rust’s email address: rust@gseis.ucla.edu

Wall Street Journal wades in on Meghan Markle controversy

The toxin that is Meghan Markle (and her thoroughly- and willingly-emasculated husband, Prince Harry) is no longer confined to the British Isles. Even Wall Street Journal is weighing in on the unending controversies she deliberately has fomented.

Gerard Baker is the Editor at Large of The Wall Street Journal. A former Editor-in-Chief of Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal (2014-2018) and former U.S. editor and an assistant editor of the Times of London, Baker covered economics for the BBC and worked as an economist at the Bank of England and Lloyds. He  holds a degree in philosophy, politics and economics from Corpus Christi College, Oxford University.

Below is Gerard Baker’s “An American Duchess Takes to the Barricades,” Wall Street Journal, November 1, 2019, which is behind a paywall. Fortunately, The Charlatan Duchess took screenshots of the article.

Meghan and her enabler Prince Harry blame her negative press on racism — the Left’s default catch-all excuse.

But it should be noted that before she snatched the British royal, Markle had never identified as biracial. Instead, her actress bio/resume identifies her as “Caucasian” (white).

Now she wears her half-black racial identity as a badge of honor and wields it as a bludgeon against her critics, including the UK taxpayers whom she no longer fools. Just read the overwhelmingly negative readers’ comments on any article about her and Harry in the Daily Mail, such as here. See also “Brits sign petition to stop taxpayer funding of Meghan Markle & Prince Harry“.

Little known is the fact that Meghan is so proud of her black ancestry that she had cosmetic surgery to shave her bulbous negroid nose. Below are pics of her when she was a student at Immaculate Heart Middle School, a private school for girls in Los Angeles, California.

Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle Sr., had paid for her private school tuition at the Hollywood Little Red Schoolhouse and Immaculate Heart Middle School. Markle also paid for Meghan’s considerable tuition and expenses at another private institution, Northwestern University.

During a speech at the University of South Pacific in Fiji in October 2019, Meghan said she had paid for her Northwestern University tuition through scholarships, financial aid, and her campus job. That was a lie, one of many from the pathological liar.

In September 2019, Thomas Markle Sr. set the record straight. He told the Mail on Sunday (which Meghan and Harry are suing) what Meghan claims is “completely untrue” and that “I paid every penny of her tuition [at Northwestern] and I have the bank statements to prove it.”

Mr. Markle also paid for Meghan’s internship at the US embassy in Buenos Aires when she was a junior at Northwestern:

“I paid for her trips to Spain and England. I paid for her internship in Argentina. I always upheld my responsibilities as a father. Meghan’s comments about paying her way through college are offensive to me. I don’t want anything from Meghan or Harry but I’m not going to shut up until the whole truth is out there. I will continue to contradict anything said about me that isn’t true.”

Meghan’s parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, divorced when she was six. She was brought up entirely by her father, whom she has “ghosted” and didn’t invite to her London wedding. Although “climate-change activist” Harry doesn’t hesitate to fly on gas-guzzling carbon-spewing private jets, he had never bothered to meet his 75-year-old father-in-law, who is bankrupt, in poor health, and lives alone in Rosarito, Mexico.

Doria was the only member of Meghan’s biological family who was invited to the wedding. Meghan has “ghosted” not just her father, but also her paternal half-sister and half-brother, both of whom have warned the British royalty and the world about how destructive Meghan is.

Professor claims SpongeBob SquarePants is racist

It would be quicker for progressives to make a list of everything that is not racist.

From Yahoo: Spongebob Squarepants has been accused of normalizing the colonization of indigenous lands by a professor at the University of Washington.

The children’s cartoon – which marked its 20th anniversary this year – was criticized in a report by Professor Holly M. Barker.

She wrote: “SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends play a role in normalizing the settler colonial takings of indigenous lands while erasing the ancestral Bikinian people from their nonfictional homeland.”

The character Spongebob is a friendly sea sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea among the other residents of a town called Bikini Bottom. Professor Barker believes that this is a reference to the real-life Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean.

Natives of Bikini Atoll were relocated in 1946 so the US military could use the area for nuclear testing during the Cold War, which drew criticism from the media after it was revealed that the inhabitants were left without adequate food or water to prevent them from starvation.

Later nuclear tests left the islands of the atoll contaminated with enough radiation to affect food grown in the soil, which meant the islands’ inhabitants were unable to return, and those who did experienced issues such as stillbirths, miscarriages and genetic abnormalities.

This has given rise to fan theories that the cartoon inhabitants of Bikini Bottom owe their mutation to the testing.

Professor Barker believes that as an American character allowed to inhabit an area that natives had no choice but to leave, SpongeBob showed his privilege of “not caring about the detonation of nuclear bombs”.

She also points out that the cultural appropriation of Pacific culture in Spongebob Squarepants, with Hawaiian-style shirts, homes in the shapes of pineapples, tikis and Easter Island heads, and the sounds of a steel guitar perpetuating stereotypes of the region.

In the article, Professor Barker claims that because of these themes, children have “become acculturated to an ideology that includes the U.S. character SpongeBob residing on another people’s homeland.”

The article concludes with this: We should be uncomfortable with a hamburger-loving American community’s occupation of Bikini’s lagoon and the ways that it erodes every aspect of sovereignty.”

The article was published in the journal The Contemporary Pacific: A Journal of Island Affairs.

“Justice for Victims of Lynching Act” – These Words Are Loaded

They Presume “white guilt.”

Did 2 Democrat presidential hopefuls conspire with an entertainer to raise race hatreds for their mutual benefit?

World Net Daily and Gateway Pundit just came out with evidence that the Jussie Smollet race hoax was directly connected to Jessie Jackson (Jr. and Sr.), Kamala Harris, Corey Booker, and Barack Obama.

The false accusati0n of white supremacist racism in the camp of Trump supporters was built to fan the flames of race hatred among blacks, and of white guilt among white liberals and leftists.

Let’s stop and think again about the name of the intended legislation:

“The Justice for Victims of Lynching Act”

Does this not imply that lynching is a current practice in America? And does not the Jussie Smollet hoax deliberately accuse Trump voters of being a hate filled lynch mob?

There is nothing that brings up images of the miscarriage of justice quite so much as the “work” of a lynch mob. And although the KKK is all but gone, the tendency of fallen human nature to do such a thing is all too real. We all need to stand for the rule of law, or the result will be out-of-control violence on all sides.

To use the accusation of lynching at this time is akin to shouting fire in a crowded theater. All reason leaves the dicusion, and adrenaline overrides every conversation. We all go onto full war footing because of the threat of such a thing happening again.

Here’s my take away on this subject

President Lucifer

Obama called himself a man of peace, but worked constantly to divide society on ethnic, racial and religious boundaries for his own advantage. He even tried to re-ignite Catholic-Protestant hostilities during a visit to Ireland. This “lynching” threat is right out of his play book. And it is clear Obama was in support of Jussie Smollett’s awful false accusation. It is no small thing that every entrenched person in the justice system that let Smollett go free has direct ties with Barack Obama.

Here’s the WND article, with a link to the Gateway Pundit article:

Fake MAGA Crime: Former NFL player charged for spraying the “N” word and MAGA on walls to make it look like a hate crime

Faux victim Edwan Coughman

From Daily Mail: A former NFL player was arrested by police for allegedly wrecking two of his own businesses to stage a fake hate crime and be eligible to receive insurance money.

Authorities from the Gwinnett County Police Department in Georgia responded to a ‘burglary in progress’ call around 9.30pm on Wednesday when a witness reported a man damaging businesses.

The two businesses, Create and Bake Restaurant and Coughman’s Creamery, belonged to former NFL player and local business owner Edwan Coughman.

Inside the businesses, officers found ‘monkey’, the n-word, ‘MAGA’ and swastikas scrawled on the walls in fresh black spray paint.

‘The smell of spray paint was very fresh. When officers touched it, the paint appeared wet,’ a news release from police said.

The cushions were reportedly sliced open, mirrors were broken, wires were cut, TVs were missing and the surveillance system was broken.

According to a news release, the witness told officers the suspect was driving a Chevrolet Silverado with no license plate.

Cpl. Michele Pihera told Gwinette Daily Post: ‘We believe he used that possibly not to have the truck or identity of the truck return back to him.’

After authorities dispatched to look for the suspicious vehicle saw one that matched the description leaving a shopping center. Behind the wheel was Coughman.

Officers noticed several TVs both inside and in the bed of his truck that were still attached to brackets with damaged drywall. Coughman was also wearing a pair of gloves, the Gwinette Daily Post reported.

The 31-year-old told authorities he realized his businesses had be burglarized earlier in the day, but contacted his insurance company instead of local police.

Suspicious, police officers obtained a search warrant to search Coughman’s car on Thursday.They found cans of black spray paint and a crow bar allegedly used to pry open the back door to one of the businesses.

Coughman was arrested in the early morning hours of Thursday for false report of a crime, insurance fraud and concealing a license plate.

The police statement said: ‘It appears as though Edawn conjured a premeditated plan to damage his own property, attempt to make it appear as a hate crime, file a claim with his insurance company, and sell off the undamaged appliances and electronics.’

Cpl. Pihera told the Gwinette Daily Post: ‘We don’t know if he was trying to get attention for this. What we do know is, if that witness had not called us and if those officers had not responded as quickly as they did, we would probably be sitting here talking about a completely different crime in which Mr. Coughman would be trying to say he’s a victim.’

As the investigation continues, the number of victims will be determined.

‘We’re also looking into the fact that his insurance company could also be a victim, depending on if a claim was in process. … There’s also a possibility the owner of the building could also be a victim,’ Pihera said.

‘The case does not fit the mold of our typical criminal investigations, so we have to look outside of the box to see how many victims we truly have.’

Coughman was bonded out of jail.

Steven Crowder’s latest edition: President Trump is not a racist, change my mind

It’s amazing how people fall hook, line and sinker for the media narrative.

And it’s amazing how they jump from point A to point B then point C without any correlation between their positions. That’s liberal logic for ‘ya.

Eco-hypocrites: Prince Harry & Meghan took private jet to Ibiza for 5-day vacation

Sanctimonious environmentalists Prince Harry, 34, and his D-listed actress-wife Meghan Markle (MM), 38, and “baby” Archie, recently took a secret trip via a private jet to Ibiza, a Mediterranean island off the coast of Spain, to celebrate MM’s birthday on August 5.

Alexander Robinson reports for Daily Mail that the royal couple and baby Archie stayed in a secluded villa away from prying eyes, and travelled with security personnel for the 6-day trip. A source told Majorca Daily Bulletin: “No images have emerged of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Archie, who stayed at a villa well away from the cameras. ‘They travelled with security personnel, and it is reported that local security forces were not needed.”

Harry has warned about the “terrifying” effects of climate change on the world when he revealed this month that he and MM had decided to limit their family to two children — a not-so-subtle jab at his brother, direct heir to the throne Prince William, who has three children.

For her part, Meghan Markle had said: “There is a ticking clock to protect our planet – with climate change, the deterioration of our natural resources, endangerment of sacred wildlife, the impact of plastics and microplastics, and fossil fuel emissions, we are jeopardising this beautiful place we call home – for ourselves and for future generations. Let’s save it. Let’s do our part.” (Express)

The Ibiza holiday came just days after Harry attended Camp Google — a celebrity climate-change summit in a luxury resort hotel on an island in Sicily, Italy, which was blasted by environmental groups for its hypocrisy. Italian media reported that 114 private jets were scheduled to land in Palermo airport for the summit. Google did not respond to requests for comment.

See my post “Hypocrisy on steroids: Global elite take private jets & super-yachts to Google Climate Summit”.

Sources told Daily Mail that Google paid for a private chartered jet and a helicopter to ferry Harry from London to Palermo airport, then to the Sicilian hotel for the summit, where Harry delivered an impassioned speech about the environment and humanitarianism while barefoot. When pressed whether Harry had flown commercial or private, the CEO of Palermo airport Giovanni Scalia said: “Being royalty you can guess which.”

Harry is also believed to have stayed in a superyacht during the summit. According to experts, a 390 ft. super-yacht produces about 3.3 tons of damaging carbon dioxide each hour at sea by burning through around 200 gallons of fuel.

Yachts spotted during the Google Camp included the 300ft Eos, owned by Expedia billionaire Barry Diller, and the 290ft Infinity belonging to former Google boss Eric Schmidt.

MM’s birthday was four days after the summit. It is unknown if Harry returned to the UK first or whether he joined MM in Ibiza. Daily Mail asked Buckingham Palace if Harry had travelled to Ibiza directly from the climate summit via private plane, but a spokesman refused to comment.

If Harry had flown directly from the summit to Ibiza via a private jet with five passengers, it would have put around a ton of carbon into the atmosphere. If he had returned to the UK first, the private jet would have used up about 1.3 tons of CO2, followed by the flight from London to Ibiza which would use about 0.8 ton.

Altogether, Harry’s travels via private jet would have put around 3 tons of carbon into the atmosphere — 10 times more carbon dioxide than going via commercial airliner. To offset just the one-way private-jet flight, Harry would need to plant around 190 trees, environmental group Trees for the Future said.

In January 2019, MM also used a private jet (owned by Trump-hater actor George Clooney) to her £300,000 New York baby shower. (Express)

But if anyone so much as dare criticize Harry and bi-racial MM, Harry already has a ready-made accusation — that their critics have “unconscious” racism.

NFL announces Obama supporter Jay-Z will be their “live music entertainment strategist”

Videos NSFW.

Yeah, that’s the ticket! This will definitely change my mind about returning to watching the NFL. NOT.

From Yahoo: (The post JAY-Z announces entertainment and social partnership with NFL appeared first on Consequence of Sound.)

Always remember, JAY-Z isn’t a businessman, he’s a business, man. Not long after becoming the world’s first billionaire rapper, he signed up to be the chief brand strategist of cannabis company Caliva. Now the hip-hop mogul has entered into another high-profile partnership — with the NFL.

The New York Times reports that the NFL and Roc Nation have signed a deal that makes JAY-Z the league’s “live music entertainment strategist.” The role will involve JAY-Z and his team consulting on the Super Bowl halftime show as well as other league concert events. That’s heartening news for those of us who have been disappointed in recent lackluster Super Bowl performances from the likes of Maroon 5 and Justin Timberlake.

What’s interesting about the deal, however, is that JAY-Z has been a vocal critic of how the NFL has handled the anthem kneeling protests and Colin Kaepernick’s apparent blackballing. In fact, the buzz in 2017 was that he turned down the halftime gig as an act of solidarity with the former NFL quarterback.

Which is likely why the partnership is far from limited to music programming. Roc Nation will be heavily involved in the league’s key social initiatives. That includes the “Inspire Change” social justice campaign, which makes donations to “groups fighting for criminal justice reform, opportunities in economically challenged areas and better relations between the police and local communities.”

“The NFL has a great platform, and it has to be all-inclusive,” JAY-Z told the Times. “They were willing to do some things, to make some changes, that we can do some good.”

“We don’t want people to come in and necessarily agree with us; we want people to come in and tell us what we can do better,” said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. “I think that’s a core element of our relationship between the two organizations, and with Jay and I personally.”

An official announcement will be made a press conference tomorrow. We’ll see if Roc Nation can help change the culture of the NFL or lead to more artists being willing to work with the league again.
