Historic Mural Removed From School Because it Only Features White Children

Painting taken down because it doesn’t reflect modern day “diversity” of Chicago.

Published

A historic mural dating from 1937 was removed from a middle school in Chicago because it only showed white children and failed to reflect the school’s modern day “diversity”.

The mural was taken down at Percy Julian Middle School in Oak Park after the school’s “Social Justice Club” and “Diversity Committee” complained that it was upsetting to students of color.

“I have had students approach me pointing out that this picture does not represent our student body or the diversity of Oak Park,” Principal Todd Fitzgerald wrote in an email to staff.

The mural – entitled ‘Child and Sports–Winter’ was originally painted by Ethel Spears and was previously displayed in Lowell Elementary.

“This mural made students feel invisible because it doesn’t reflect the current student body,” Brito Millan said. “How can a student learn in a healthy environment when they don’t feel they are being seen?”

However, David Sokol, a retired professor of American art history at the University of Illinois at Chicago, described the removal of the painting as a “modern-day book burning.”

“There is nothing offensive with the mural; it just shows all white kids playing,” said Sokol. “Just because it doesn’t have any black kids, doesn’t make it offensive. It doesn’t display any stereotypes at all. That’s how Oak Park looked back then. You can’t erase history.”

Barbara Bernstein, a founder of the New Deal Art Registry, agreed, commenting, “I think it does a real disservice to remove a piece of historical work,” said Bernstein. “Not everything in your environment is going to be a perfect reflection of you.”

British Chief of Police Warns “Misgendering” People is a Form of “Abuse”

Amidst soaring violent crime and stabbings across the country.

Published

A chief of police in Britain chose to recognize “international pronouns day” by putting out a video warning people that misgendering transgender people was a form of “abuse.”

“Today is international pronouns day,” said Detective Chief Constable Julie Cooke in a video posted to Twitter. “Which is a day particularly important to people who identify as transgender or gender nonconforming.”

“Being misgendered can have a huge impact on somebody and their personal well being, it also can be used as a form of abuse for somebody and that just isn’t right,” she added.

“Today is about raising awareness, getting people to have conversations, and understanding why it is so important to understand the pronouns that somebody wishes to be used for them,” concluded Cooke.

The warning is no idle threat. Numerous people in the United Kingdom have been arrested for alleged “transphobia.”

Earlier this year, a 38-year-old woman was arrested in front of her own children and locked up for 7 hours after referring to a transgender woman as a man online.

A man was also interrogated for 30 minutes by police for liking a limerick on Twitter (he didn’t even write it) that made fun of transgender people.

A Christian doctor in the UK was also fired from his government job earlier this summer after he refused to refer to a 6 foot bearded man as “Madam.”

But who cares? It’s not as if the United Kingdom is currently experiencing record violent crime rates, with violent crime in England and Wales having risen by 19% in a year, is it?

No, it’s much more important to go after Twitter users who hurt someone’s feelings by referring to them as their biological gender.

Creator of Men in Black Told Having an Opinion on His Own Film Was ‘Old White Mansplaining’

And he apologized for it.

Published

on

The creator of Men in Black Ed Solomon was told during a conversation with social justice warriors that having an opinion on his own movie was ‘old white mansplaining’.

Yes, really.

“At the cafe where I’m writing the people next to me were disagreeing about the origins of Men in Black & I said “If you’d like, I could clear that up for you” & one responded: “I’m sorry, we do not need an old white male’s mansplanation.” So I apologized and that was that,” tweeted Solomon.

Solomon added that this wasn’t a one off interaction, he had been conversing with the group beforehand.

He subsequently tweeted that one of the group apologized to him for using the term “old” (but not ‘mansplanation’) and that they were having a “bad day.”

Perhaps the most depressing aspect of this story is that Solomon apologized for having an opinion on his own movie in the first place.

Video: Gender Studies Professor Blames Trump For Black Female Obesity

Says it’s harder for black women to lose weight because of racism.

Published

on

During a television appearance, a New Jersey gender studies professor claimed that Donald Trump’s policies were to blame for black female obesity.

“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,” said Brittney Cooper during a discussion on ‘Black Women OWN the Conversation’, which is broadcast on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

“We are living in the Trump era,” the professor added. “And look, those policies kill our people. You can’t get access to good health care, good insurance.”

Presumably, she believes there were no black obese women before Trump was elected.

Cooper then went on to assert that it’s harder for black women to lose weight than white women because they are more stressed about racism and it slows down their metabolism.

Yes, really.

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

Now a generation of clinically obese black women can just blame racism for their inability to lose weight and continue stuffing their faces with cake.

How inspiring!
