Superbowl halftime show featured a “latinx” stripper. Was there really a pole dance?

Progressives are taking their minor setbacks as well as expected. It’s almost as if giving in and aceeding to every temper tantrum kiddies have since they were born had negative consequences which nobody could have foreseen.
I predict this will be a steady, even growing theme as the 2020 election approaches its inevitable.
Shouldn’t somebody be stitching these together to make a campaign video?
Parents in the state of Washington are fighting a Democrat bill that would mandate LGBTQ-focused sex ed for children, including kindergartners.
Democrats in the State House are pushing House Bill 2184, a measure that would mandate “comprehensive sexual health education” by the year 2022.
I’ve made this point dozens of times, but if you say there is nothing wrong with, say, sodomy, then it follows that there is nothing wrong with sodomy. And if there is nothing wrong with sodomy, there is nothing wrong with teaching it to kids. One follows from the other.
The alternative is to be brave and say that sodomy is bad. Go ahead. Your HR department will thank you for your honesty.
Freshly made pasta is drying on the wooden bannisters lining the hall of a beautiful home in Denver, Colorado. Fox-hunting photos decorate the walls in a room full of books. A fire is burning. And downstairs, a group of liberal white women have gathered around a long wooden table to admit how racist they are….
This is Race to Dinner. A white woman volunteers to host a dinner in her home for seven other white women — often strangers, perhaps acquaintances. (Each dinner costs $2,500, which can be covered by a generous host or divided among guests.) A frank discussion is led by co-founders Regina Jackson, who is black, and Saira Rao, who identifies as Indian American. They started Race to Dinner to challenge liberal white women to accept their racism, however subconscious. “If you did this in a conference room, they’d leave,” Rao says. “But wealthy white women have been taught never to leave the dinner table.”
Rao and Jackson believe white, liberal women are the most receptive audience because they are open to changing their behavior. They don’t bother with the 53% of white women who voted for Trump. White men, they feel, are similarly a lost cause. “White men are never going to change anything. If they were, they would have done it by now,” Jackson says.
Rao is the grifter who got her start on Twitter bashing whites in ways designed to be absurd. She’s easy to handle. But the idiot white women who flock to her? How do we straighten them out?
Repeal suffrage? Well, sure, that would work. But how to do the repeal? Since no one in any authority, or who loves their paycheck, has any guts or will, nothing can be done. Save a miracle—which I wouldn’t count on.
The EU is planning to implement laws that make historic rebuilding illegal. “When new parts/elements are necessary, a project shall use contemporary design adding new value and/or use while respecting the existing ones.” EU is literally staffed by demons.
You can tell its art, or architecture, because it’s ugly.
About a third of FTSE 100 companies have no ethnic minority representation on their boards, a report has revealed.
The Parker Review Committee found 31 of the 83 firms which provided relevant information fell into this category.
Ms Abimbola said: “I found a number of barriers to entering the profession because I had an African name and am a black woman, without any doubt.”
She told the BBC: “I had to make over 100 phone calls to get a foot in the door.
“I have experienced bias and situations where, being a black woman, I was judged more harshly over other colleagues. You are more likely to be noticed and are far more likely to have negative judgements made about you if you are part of an ethnic minority.”
The opposite conclusion, and one just as justified by the data, is that black women aren’t as good at these types of jobs as other candidates.
Of course, my white name keeps me from getting good jobs in Japan. I demand equity!
DeKalb-based Northern Illinois University announced that it will stop using standardized tests in its undergraduate admissions process and will instead admit every applicant with a grade point average of 3.0 or higher.
Some evidence suggests the school’s decision may be related to the fact that it’s having a hard time attracting students….
The move is meant to “eliminate unnecessary and biased barriers,” NIU President Lisa Freeman said in a statement. The policy change “comes from our deep commitment to making a college education both accessible and equitable for a broad and diverse student population.”
Provost Beth Ingram added that a student’s grade point average would suffice in the future because it makes standardized testing scores “irrelevant.” She said the school was optimistic that the new policy would “encourage good students to focus on getting the most out of their high school classes.”
Bias, racism, etc. etc. It’s all so tiresome, as the meme goes.
Steve Sailer elsewhere wondered whether some of this wokeness is simulated in a calculated attempt to lure students, as the article semi-admitted. There’s a demographic deficit of students coming soon, and unless colleges can stuff seats with “refugees” and “migrants”, there’s going to be a lot of empty lecture halls. Some schools will be forced to close.
If, that is, standards are kept. Only choice to lower or eliminate them, and blame it on wokeness since blaming it on money sounds too mercenary.
What was that about the love of money being the root of all evil?
How will the liberal whites vote?
