Students sign petition to ban ‘offensive’ white man in crosswalk signs

By Ethan Cai

  • GWU students recently voted to change the school’s “Colonials” mascot and told Campus Reform that President Barack Obama is the best president in history.

  • Campus Reform went undercover to George Washington University to ask students if they supported changing the “offensive” and “oppressive” white man in crosswalk lights, as well.

     

    With the rise of politically correct culture, students and universities have vehemently pushed for diversity and inclusivity movements, resulting in many things being labeling “offensive.”

    In the past, students have signed fake petitions to ban “offensive” holidays like Valentine’s Day and even Christmas to push diversity and inclusion.

    “I can see like, I guess, why some students have a problem with it… I’ll totally sign that.”

    Amid these ongoing diversity and inclusivity movements, Campus Reform went to George Washington University in Washington, D.C., where students previously voted to ban their “offensive” Colonials mascot. GW students also previously told Campus Reform that President Barack Obama is the best president in U.S. history.

    Campus Correspondent Ethan Cai asked George Washington students if they supported changing “offensive” crosswalk lights because the “walk” sign only portrays an image of a white man.

    How far will this movement of diversity and inclusion go? Where will the line be drawn for what is considered offensive?

    WATCH:

    “As we students cross the street, we are told by the symbol of a white man when it is okay to cross,” the fake petition stated. “Many students from diverse backgrounds, including individuals of color, gender fluid individuals, and LGBTQA+ individuals, feel oppressed by this.”

    By signing the petition, students “vehemently urge[d] the University to consider changing the crosswalk signs.”

    Many students signed Campus Reform’s fake petition. Even one university faculty member expressed support, as well.

    “There’s definitely a lack of representation,” one student said about the crosswalks. Another said that she thought the change would be “one step” to a more welcoming campus environment.

    “That’s so cute! Oh my god yeah,” a student said with excitement about the idea. “I can see like, I guess, why some students have a problem with it… I’ll totally sign that.”

    “Oh that’s so lit,” another student exclaimed.

Kamala Harris: $75 Billion for Black Entrepreneurs, Colleges

WASHINGTON, DC - JANUARY 21: U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) speaks to reporters after announcing her candidacy for President of the United States, at Howard University, her alma mater, on January 21, 2019 in Washington, DC. Harris is the first African-American woman to announce a run for the White House …

By Joel B. Pollak

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) released a $75 billion plan Friday aimed specifically at helping African-Americans overcome the wealth gap. The plan includes $60 billion to historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and $12 billion to support black entrepreneurs.

The Root notes the details of the plan:

Harris’ latest plan to address the wealth gap calls for pumping $60 billion into HBCUs, like her alma mater Howard, and other “minority-serving institutions” or MSIs, to increase the number of black graduates in STEM [science, technology, engineering, and math] programs.

Under her plan, $10 billion would be allocated to a fund to help HBCUs build out their STEM facilities, while another $50 billion would be provided in a competitive fund to help HBCUs and MSIs do such things as provide students with scholarships, support post-doctoral fellows, build curriculum, and gird cutting-edge research programs.

Harris also said she will provide another $2.5 billion toward HBCU programs that train black teachers.

Harris’ plan also calls for helping African Americans start small businesses by creating a $12 billion “capital grant and technical support” program, with the funds distributed by the Commerce Department’s Minority Business Development Agency.

(Read the full article at The Root here.)

Harris is on record supporting a form of reparations for slavery. She told NPR earlier this year that the reparations could involve spending on mental health for African-Americans, adding: “What I mean by [reparations] is that we need to study the effects of generations of discrimination and institutional racism and determine what can be done, in terms of intervention, to correct course.”

President Donald Trump has also made support for HBCUs a central focus of his education policy, and a core part of his outreach to the black community.

 

Second Largest Teachers Union Protests For Illegal Immigrants, Calls Trump Racist

American Federation of Teachers Illegal Immigrants

The country’s second largest teacher’s union spent the day celebrating illegal immigration and bashing the Trump administration.

By

The second largest education union in the United States is the driving force behind a rally to protect illegal immigrants featuring presidential candidate Jay Inslee.

The American Federation of Teachers has been busy live tweeting their protest against so-called family separation at the U.S.-Mexico border, a policy started by President Barack Obama, aimed at separated illegal immigrant children from the individuals, sometimes human traffickers, purporting to be their parents when they are brought into the United States.

Dozens of members and employees of the union gathered, wearing t shirts with the union’s logo, to shout catchy slogans like “No hate, no fear, immigrants are welcome here!” and “Let our babies go!”

The American Federation of Teachers also used its verified Twitter account to accuse President Donald Trump of racism, writing “Mr. President, racism is not patriotism.”

It is not known whether they also consider President Obama to be racist.

At one point, Jay Inslee, the Democrat governor of Washington who is running for president on the platform of “defeating climate change” who is polling at close to zero per cent after he failed to distinguish himself in the first Democrat debate, joined the stage to bash the Trump administration.

“I have come here to speak with pride for a prideful nation,” said Inslee. “Here is what we are proud of, we are proud that educators in America speak out against oppression of children in America.” “We are proud that the state of Washington understands that diversity is a strength and not a weakness.”

Inslee also doubled down on a conspiracy theory popularized by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), claiming that migrant children are not given soap to wash themselves with.

“There is nothing to be proud of,” said Inslee, “for putting a 5-year-old kid in a cage and not giving them soap to clean themselves with.” At this point, for some unknown reason, a member of the crowd began laughing maniacally. Really.

For some reason, the American Federation of Teachers also occasionally posted a tweet in Spanish.

The American Federation of Teachers is a member of the country’s largest union federation, the American Federation of Labor, which recently posted a meme advocating beheading the CEO of Delta Airlines.

Unions seem to be increasing their march toward the complete destruction of all facets of American society, and even school children and classrooms are not safe.

I’ve met a few people from Stanford…all filthy rich. “Kid you don’t do your homework. You cheat on exams. You game all day. How do you expect to get into college?” The teacher inquires. “Back door.” Comes the response from the Mayor’s son.

COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR WANTS TO “PUNCH” POLITICAL ADVERSARIES “IN THE NECK”

Colorado State University Professor Wants to "Punch" Political Adversaries "In the Neck"

“I’m done going high”

JULY 8, 2019

A Colorado State University professor says she is done “going high” and is now ready to “punch” her political adversaries “in the neck”.

Professor OiYan Poon was responding to a tweet that stated, “when they go low, you fucking punch them in the neck”.

“I’m almost done reading Michelle Obama’s Becoming, and in reading the subtext, I don’t think she even believes the whole “when they go low, we go high” b.s.,” tweeted Poon.

“Also, this tweet is a mood! I’m done “going high”. #ImReady to “punch them in the neck,” she added.

The phrase “when they go low, we go high,” was used by Michelle Obama in 2016 to encourage taking the high road against low blow tactics and dirty tricks by Republicans.

“Poon teaches higher education leadership at Colorado State and also serves as director of the school’s Race and Intersectional Studies for Education Equity (RISE) Center,” reports Campus Reform.

Poon previously complained that “there was not enough racial diversity in gifs”. She also praised her friend, activist Tanzila Ahmed, who was banned from the Tinder dating app for saying she would not date white men in her bio.

Following Campus Reform’s story on her comments, Poon placed her Twitter account on lockdown.

Portland State U Students Demand Disarming Of Campus Police

PSU Disarm Campus Police

By Faye Higbee and Jeff Dunetz

Never mind how stupid this sounds. Never mind how much students today are afraid of mass shooters. Portland State U students have decided they want their campus police disarmed.

KGW8 TV reported,

Portland State University students rallied at a Thursday board meeting, calling for campus police officers to be disarmed.

“Police with guns are ticking time bomb,” said Olivia Pace, one of the students who spoke in front of the Portland State University Board of Trustees.

Students in favor of disarming campus police held signs and spoke at the board meeting. They said they believe it has taken far too long for university leadership to take action…

At Thursday’s board meeting, multiple students spoke directly to trustees, voicing their frustration with the lack of decision making on the issue.

“We feel like the longer the university pushes this off to more and more committees and more and more third parties, the issue will kind of just dissolve,” said Pace.

Earlier this year a report, commissioned by the university, found that more than half of students and faculty supported disarming campus officers. That same report also recommended keeping campus police armed.

Really? And what happens if a criminal with a gun comes onto the campus. Will the Campus police tell them to drop the weapon or they will tell the dean? Or their mommies?

Last year PSU officers shot and killed Jason Washington – who was a legal gun carrier that happened to drop his weapon as he was trying to break up a fight. The Campus Cops testified:

When Washington got up, the officers say he was holding the gun in his hand.

“I’m screaming, like, begging really – for this guy to drop his gun,” Dewey told the grand jury.

Both officers said they told Washington to drop the gun. Then they said he pointed it in their direction.

“In my mind, I’m like thinkin’ I’m gonna be shot right there, and I fire a couple rounds,” said McKenzie. “I see him fall to the ground. Uh, when I see that, I saw firing. I, my next thought process is if he’s wounded, he can shoot at us again at the last know location we were at.”

That testimony was confirmed by a Portland Police forensic technician who was called in to examine the body camera video of the shooting, slowing it down and enhancing the video to see whether Washington pointed his gun at police.

Video shows PSU officers fatally shooting man; grand jury report says the gun was friend’s

The technician, Portland Police Bureau officer Anthony Eugenio, showed the grand jury that Washington’s right arm was extended in front of his body with a black object in his hand, consistent with a firearm.

When asked if he believed that Washington pointed the gun towards the officers, he said that is “correct.”

A grand jury cleared the two Campus police and based on the testimony it seems that by using their service revolvers the two campus police saved lives (including their own)

Even so, the story of Jason Washington was a tragedy.  But the students think the campus police officers are “dangerous” because they carry guns—and they are dangerous to students who point a gun at them.

How many of these students worry about a mass shooter, armed robber, a rapist with a gun, or any other kind of gun-wielding criminal gets onto the Campus? How many of them would be quickly shot dead if their campus police were unarmed? Who would stop a shooter? They are valid questions, ones that the “social justice warrior” crowd ignores.

Erasing America ‘Offensive’ George Washington Mural to Be Removed From — George Washington High School

CAP

By Tom Ciccotta

George Washington High School in San Francisco, California, plans to remove an “offensive” mural of George Washington. At a school board meeting this week, no board members spoke in defense of the historical art, which one speaker claims causes “visual offense.”

According to a local news report, George Washington High School in San Francisco plans to erase a 13-panel mural from 1936 that depicts George Washington. Many critics of the mural have condemned its depictions of slaves and Native Americans. Now, the school is on the verge of removing the mural altogether.

Breitbart News originally reported on the push to remove the mural in May, when alumni backed the calls for removal. Although many members in the local community, including students, have argued in favor of keeping the mural, others still insist that it be taken down. At a meeting that was held on June 18, not even one school board member argued that the mural should stay up.

“Why do we have to explain the pain caused by visual offense that we see in that building that is supposed to be an institution of learning,” one local said.

Others, still, are pushing back against calls to paint over the historical art piece. “We should be teaching about the mural and what it means. I’m half native American.  I have no problem with the mural.  It depicts what happened,” another local added.

Joel Britton, the Socialist Workers Party candidate for mayor, surprisingly argued in favor of keeping the mural. “Destroying or covering it would be an act of censorship and a blow to freedom of expression that would set a precedent for further such actions,” Britton said. “Censorship creates precedents that will always come down hardest on the working class, including African American, Latinos, Native American, and Asian American working people.”
