Stevie Wonder: Can’t Say, ‘Black Lives Matter’ When Blacks Are Killing Blacks (Video)

While addressing “gun violence” at a North Minneapolis Conference on Peace, musician Stevie Wonder said it is contradictory to say, “Black Lives Matter” while black-on-black crime rages out of control.

According to Billboard magazine, Wonder said, “It is in your hands to do it. It is in your hands to stop all the killing and all the shooting wherever you might be. Because you cannot say, ‘Black lives matter,’ and then kill yourselves.”

He continued:

Because you know we’ve mattered long before it was said, but the way we show that we matter, the way that we show all the various people of color matter is by loving each other and doing something about it. Not just talking about it, not just waiting to see the media and press come when there’s a horrible thing.

He added, “The first thing you must do is stop believing the fallacy of you not being important. Because it is completely unacceptable for one to hate themselves so much that anyone that looks like you, you want to kill.”

Yale Dean Steps Down After Calling People ‘White Trash’ in Yelp Comments

June Chu, who came under fire earlier in 2017 for using disparaging terms like “white trash” in Yelp reviews, has left Yale University.

“Dean Chu has left her position at Pierson College and wishes the best to the students,” Pierson College administrative head Stephen Davis wrote in an email to students. “As a result, I am initiating the process of the search for a new dean, who will be in place before the start of the fall term.”

Davis claimed that he lost trust in Chu’s ability to lead students after he discovered that there were more than two concerning posts. He claimed that there were “multiple reprehensible posts” that were part of a widespread pattern.

Chu had been placed on leave by Yale towards the end of May over disparaging remarks she made on Yelp towards local establishments surrounding New Haven, Connecticut, where the university is located.

“This establishment is definitely not authentic by any stretch of any imagination and perfect for those low-class folks who believe this is a real night out,” Chu wrote in one post. In another review, Chu wrote that the restaurant was perfect for anyone who was “white trash.”

EU Greens Call for Brussels to Send ‘Whole Villages’ of Syrians to Eastern Europe

The migration spokesman for the Greens in the European Union (EU) Parliament has called for Brussels to resettle “whole villages” of migrants in Eastern Europe.

Vice-President of the Greens-European Free Alliance group, Ska Keller, told the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung that it is essential the EU implement a “solidarity distribution” system because migrants should be spread throughout Europe.

Noting how a large proportion of the migrants resettled in Baltic states like Lithuania quickly left to seek higher welfare payments in countries like Germany, the Green MEP said Brussels should send migrants to Eastern Europe in much greater numbers.

Keller suggested the EU could resettle “a whole Syrian village” in Latvia, “for example, if refugees are not wanting to move to a country without any other refugees”.

“People like to go where they can be among their own countrymen,” she explained, and claimed that moving migrants in huge numbers would improve integration.

Commenting on the European Commission’s decision to take legal action against Central European nations refusing to welcome a quota of third world migrants set by Brussels, the German politician stressed that “the refusal of the Czech Republic and other states to accept refugees violates EU law. That is why the EU Commission has launched a case against these countries for breaching the EU Treaty.”

Speaking last week on EU proceedings against the Czech Republic, the nation’s iconic former president Vaclav Klaus said withdrawing from the bloc is the only way to save the country from forced multiculturalism.

Europe’s Elites Seem Determined to Commit Suicide by ‘Diversity’

Politicians say with fury that their migration policies ‘must’ work. What if they don’t?

Europe in 2017 is racked with uncertainty—the eurozone crises, the endless challenges of the European Union, national elections that resemble endless rounds of bullet-dodging. Yet even these events are insignificant compared with the deep tectonic shifts beneath the Continent’s politics, shifts that Europeans—and their allies—ignore at our peril.

Throughout the migration crisis of recent years I traveled across the Continent, from the reception islands into which migrants arrive to the suburbs in which they end up and the chancelleries which encouraged them to come. For decades Europe had encouraged guest workers, and then their families, to come. As Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel once admitted, nobody expected them to stay.

Yet stay they did, with their numbers swelling even when there were no jobs. Waking up to the results of their policy, European societies rebranded themselves “multicultural” societies, only to begin wondering what that meant. Could a multicultural society make any demands of its newcomers? Or would that be “racist”?

Can a Divided America Survive? by Victor Davis Hanson

History has not been very kind to countries that enter a state of multicultural chaos.

The United States is currently the world’s oldest democracy. But America is no more immune from collapse than were some of history’s most stable and impressive consensual governments. Fifth-century Athens, Republican Rome, Renaissance Florence and Venice, and many of the elected governments of early 20th-century Western European states eventually destroyed themselves, went bankrupt, or were overrun by invaders.

The United States is dividing as rarely before. Half the country, mostly liberal America, is concentrated in 146 of the nation’s more than 3,000 counties — in an area that collectively represents less than 10 percent of the U.S. land mass. The other half, the conservative Red states of the interior of America, is geographically, culturally, economically, politically, and socially at odds with Blue-state America, which resides mostly on the two coasts.

The two Americas watch different news. They read very different books, listen to different music, and watch different television shows. Increasingly, they now live lives according to two widely different traditions.

Historically black college must pay white professor nearly $5 million for racial discrimination

Retaliation by ‘black power’ dean, evidence destroyed.

Only white people can be racist, huh?

A state appeals court upheld a jury verdict of nearly $5 million – three-quarters of that punitive damages – against an historically black college for discriminating against a white employee.

One of its many sins that were meticulously laid out by the court? Deleting incriminating emails from the senior official who targeted the white employee.

Beverly Wilkins, a white woman from a poor family, steadily rose through the ranks of Missouri’s Harris-Stowe State University, from adjunct to full-time instructor (off the tenure track). She had regular contract renewals for eight years and “excellent reviews” within her majority-black Teacher Education Department, according to the appeals court’s summary.

When Latisha Smith was temporarily made co-chair of the department, “a faculty member” complained to top university officials that Smith had “repeatedly proclaimed her belief in ‘black power’” and her “flagrant prejudice should not be tolerated or accepted.” One of those officials told the complainer to drop it or any chance at tenure “would be jeopardized.”

Cultural appropriation: Make it illegal worldwide, Indigenous advocates say

Delegates in Geneva from 189 countries are looking at the issue, and some want UN to speed it up.

Indigenous advocates from around the world are calling on a UN committee to ban the appropriation of Indigenous cultures — and to do it quickly.

Delegates from 189 countries, including Canada, are in Geneva this week as part of a specialized international committee within the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), a United Nations agency.

Since it began in 2001, the committee has been working on creating and finishing three pieces of international law that would expand intellectual-property regulations to protect things like Indigenous designs, dances, words and traditional medicines.

The meeting takes place as concern grows worldwide about the rights of cultures to control their own materials. In the U.S. this week, designer Tory Burch agreed to change the description of one of her coats for women after Romanians protested that it had been described as African-inspired when it actually appropriated a traditional Romanian garment.

Speaking to the committee Monday, James Anaya, dean of law at the University of Colorado, said the UN’s negotiated document should “obligate states to create effective criminal and civil enforcement procedures to recognize and prevent the non-consensual taking and illegitimate possession, sale and export of traditional cultural expressions.”

Prof: ‘white marble’ in artwork contributes to white supremacy

In a recent op-ed, Professor Sarah Bond argued that the “white marble” often seen in classical artwork was initially colored. As a result, she suggests that “the equation of white marble with beauty” contributes to “white supremacist ideas today.”

A University of Iowa professor recently argued that appreciation of “white marble” used in classical artwork contributes to “white supremacist ideas today.”

Professor Sarah Bond demonstrates in an article published in Hyperallergic that “many of the statues, reliefs, and sarcophagi created in the ancient Western world were in fact painted,” meaning the “white marble” often seen in such pieces of art were intended to be colored.

Consequently, Bond argues that “the equation of white marble with beauty is not an inherent truth of the universe,” and is thus “a dangerous construct that continues to influence white supremacist ideas today.”

Bond goes on to point out that “most museums and art history textbooks contain a predominantly neon white display of skin tone,” which “has an impact on the way we view the antique world.”

“The assemblage of neon whiteness serves to create a false idea of homogeneity — everyone was very white! — across the Mediterranean region,” she adds, later stating that misconceptions of the classical era provide “further ammunition for white supremacists today, including groups like Identity Europa, who use classical statuary as a symbol of white male superiority.”
