University To Mandate ‘Race And Ethnicity’ Course For All Students

Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia is to mandate that all of its students take a “Race and Ethnicity Requirement” course from next year, following consistent demands from the university’s black student group.

Campus Reform reports that the university wants all students to understand “how racial and ethnic antagonisms and inequality develop historically.”

“After careful consideration over the past six years, and in ongoing consultation with faculty, students, and administrators, the Emory College Faculty Senate and the Working Group on the Undergraduate Curriculum concur that Emory University has a particular obligation and opportunity to focus a diversity requirement on the crucial role of race and ethnicity in shaping our institutions, and in furthering students’ understanding of current domestic and international political and social relations,” a statement reads.

Black students at the university have been lobbying for the move for over five years.

Back in 2015 a letter from the group noted that it was “still reeling at injustices made by the University and the lack of adequate action.”

The students demanded that officials at the university “understand and then appropriately address the mental stress incurred by Black Students at this institution on a daily basis.”

“The Bias Incident Reporting that Emory University has not been efficient because they have not thoroughly tended to the concerns of those who have used the reporting system,” the students also declared, adding that “The microaggressions and macroaggressions that Black students experience which lead to our trauma should not be regarded for the sole purpose of data collection.”

The development comes in the wake of black and native American students at several colleges and universities increasingly demanding action against professors and academics who have expressed opinions not directly in line with their own.

A senior researcher at Michigan State University was effectively fired after sharing facts from a study conducted last year that conclusively proved there is no widespread racial bias in police shootings.

At Loyola University New Orleans, students demanded the firing of professor Walter Block over his opinions on slavery, even though he vehemently opposes it.

At UCLA, a professor was suspended for rejecting requests to allow black students to take final exams at a later date as a response to the death of George Floyd and black lives matter protests. Accounting lecturer Gordon Klein was punished for saying that students should not be treated differently according to the colour of their skin.

Meanwhile, other academics have been lauded and rewarded for promoting opinions in line with the woke mob that even Twitter removed for being hateful.

Bike Store Cancels Contract With Austin Bike Police After ‘Woke’ Employees Complain

Staffers upset bikes being used for crowd control at BLM protests.

A bike store in Austin, Texas has cancelled its contract with the Austin Police bike patrol unit after three ‘woke’ employees complained that the bikes were being used for crowd control during Black Lives Matter protests.

In a Facebook post, Christopher Carlisle explains how for eight years he maintained a contractual relationship with Mellow Johnny’s Bike store in downtown Austin to provide bikes and other equipment for the Down Town Area Command (DTAC) Bike Patrol and the Bicycle Public Order Team.

Now thanks to the last two months of BLM social justice protests in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd, that relationship is apparently over.

“Today I received a call the sales manager I have worked with for years at MJ’S, he informed me that they have three employees who work for them that are complaining about providing bikes to the police department in this time of social unrest in protest and disturbances,” writes Carlisle.

“They stated to ownership that they did not like the fact that we use bicycles to help us manage crowds and crowd movement.”

Carlisle asserts that the store caved in to the woke employees by canceling the contact with Austin police that had four years left to run, “because three employees do not like police officers and did not like us in the store.”

The APD had been purchasing around 50 TREK police bikes a year as part of the agreement, meaning the amount of income the store is sacrificing in order to satiate its leftist staffers is reasonably substantial.

Tim Enlow responded to the news by posting, “That is their absolute right as business owners. It’s also every citizen’s right to decide to take their bicycle business elsewhere,” calling for a boycott of the store.

New Poll Shows Majority of Americans Now Oppose Black Lives Matter

Numbers have flipped since early June.

After enjoying a surge in support following the death of George Floyd, a new polls reveals that a majority of Americans now oppose the Black Lives Matter movement.

The survey, conducted by Civiqs, shows that in early June, 44 per cent of Americans supported BLM and 34 per cent opposed it.

However, those numbers have now changed, with 41 per cent supporting BLM and 44 per cent opposing the movement.

“This is a return to normalcy more than anything,” commented one Twitter user in response to the poll.

The flip in support has no doubt been fueled by almost two months of rioting, looting and statues being torn down across America.

Despite the public now turning against the movement, giant corporations continue to virtue signal in support of BLM, although Red Bull bucked that trend by firing two directors who had tried to pressure the company to take a pro-BLM stance.

The founders of BLM openly state that the movement is about overthrowing capitalism, the “patriarchy” and western enlightenment ideals in general.

While many leftists would support that, it seems as though the majority of Americans don’t.

Black Portland Cop Details Racist Abuse From White Leftist Protesters

“You have more minorities on the police side than you have in a violent crowd.”

Black Portland police officer Jakhary Jackson has gone public to detail the racist abuse he has received from white leftist protesters while pointing out that there are often more minorities on the police side than those demonstrating.

Jackson made the comments in a 27 minute video released by the Portland Police Department.

Noting that he has been repeatedly attacked with explosive devices, Jackson described the protests as “bizarre.”

“It says something when you’re at a Black Lives Matter protest and you have more minorities on the police side than you have in a violent crowd,” he explained. “You have white people screaming at black officers, ‘you have the biggest nose I’ve ever seen!’ You hear these things and you go, ‘are they gonna say something to this person?’ No.”

Jackson also detailed how leftists try to demoralize black police officers by telling them that they are hurting black people.

“Having people tell you what to do with your life, that you need to quit your job. Saying you’re hurting your community but they’re not even part of the community. And you as a privileged white person telling a person of color what to do with their life – and you don’t even know what I’ve dealt with or what these white officers that you’re screaming at — you don’t know them. You don’t know anything about them,” he said.

The police officer also revealed how white leftists try to prevent black protesters from talking to black police officers.

“Every time I try to have a conversation with someone that looks like me, someone white comes up and tells them not to talk,” he said.

Jackson also defended his white colleagues who have consistently defended him and also put their own safety at risk to help black people.

“They’re accused of being racist when I’ve seen those officers helping people of color, getting blood on them, trying to save someone’s life that’s been shot in gang violence,” he said.

“They’re truly trying to help save someone’s life and they’re turned around and called a racist by people who have never had to put themselves out there. It’s disgusting,” added Jackson.
