Chicago Uni English Dpt. Says It Will Only Allow ‘Black Studies’ Students

The reason? “Black Lives Matter”.

The English Department at the University of Chicago has said that it will only enroll students who want to undertake ‘Black studies’ this college year, reasoning that it is a move in solidarity with the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement.

Campus Reform points to the University’s admissions webpage, which contains the disturbing announcement.

“For the 2020-2021 graduate admissions cycle, the University of Chicago English Department is accepting only applicants interested in working in and with Black Studies,” the post reads.

The justification for the decision is, according to the University “that Black Lives Matter, and that the lives of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and Rayshard Brooks matter, as do thousands of others named and unnamed who have been subject to police violence.”

“As literary scholars, we attend to the histories, atmospheres, and scenes of anti-Black racism and racial violence in the United States and across the world. We are committed to the struggle of Black and Indigenous people, and all racialized and dispossessed people, against inequality and brutality,” the announcement also declares.

The site claims that the ‘Black studies’ course works “in close collaboration with other departments to study African American, African, and African diaspora literature and media, as well as in the histories of political struggle, collective action, and protest that Black, Indigenous and other racialized peoples have pursued, both here in the United States and in solidarity with international movements.”

It also notes that part of the course focuses on “struggle, collective action, and counterrevolution as contexts for the emergence of ideas and narratives.”

The course also contains a working group called the “Race and Capitalism Project,” which focuses on “how processes of racialization within the U.S. shaped capitalist society and economy and how capitalism has simultaneously shaped processes of racialization.”

It thus appears that significant portions of the course are focused on Marxist ideology, which ties directly into the core principles of the organised element of the Black Lives Matter movement.

If this were merely a study option, then it would not be as disturbing, but the fact that the entire English department of a major university appears to be precluding any other forms of study unless this course is included is chilling.

Chicago University is not alone in turning directly to Marxist ideology, with the announcement last week that Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, is offering a course on “How to Overthrow the State.”

According to the description on the university’s website, the course “places each student at the head of a popular revolutionary movement aiming to overthrow a sitting government and forge a better society.”

High-End Brands Tell Security Guards to Keep Quiet About Looting Over Fear of Being Labeled “Racist”

Criminals allowed to shoplift because stores don’t want to be publicly shamed.

High-end brand stores in New York are telling security guards to keep quiet and allow looters to steal luxury items in case the company is accused of being “racist.”

Yes, really.

According to a report in the New York Post, “shoplifters are terrorizing Soho’s high-end boutiques,” stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of products on a weekly basis.

The stores have posted numerous security guards outside the premises in an attempt to deter thieves, but ever since nationwide riots at the end of May, many of them are being told to stand down if any looting actually takes place.

“If they [store personnel] stop them and say anything in the store before they’ve left the building then it often gets turned into a racial accusation,” a local source told the newspaper.

“The brands … tell their employees to walk away,” the insider added. “They don’t want to be the next Instagram video claiming they are a racist brand.”

NYPD Sgt. Joseph Imperatrice said “mobs of young, transient groups” are responsible for blitzing stores, grabbing as much stuff as they can hold before fleeing.

There have been dozens of these incidents in recent weeks, with looters targeting Adidas, Fendi and Burberry, Moncler, Celine and other stores.

The criminals appear to have become emboldened since the BLM movement picked up steam earlier in the year, presumably thinking that shoplifting a new pair of expensive sneakers is a form of “justice”.

“The era of Black Lives Matter is a golden age for criminals,” writes Dave Blount.

“In the near future, all stores will resemble ghetto liquor stores, with the goods secured behind bulletproof glass. A society that reveres criminals like George Floyd, Jacob Blake, et al can expect no better.”

Given this on top of everything else, is it any wonder that people are fleeing from New York in droves?

City of Seattle Paying Antifa Militants to Write F**k Police on BLM Mural

Live streamer laughs about how he is being paid by the authorities to support the ‘revolution’.

The city of Seattle is literally paying Antifa militants to write “f**k police” and “all cops are bastards” (ACAB) on Black Lives Matter murals near the infamous CHOP zone, according to a far-left live streamer.

Kitty Shackleford shared clips from the individual’s live stream which went out on Monday, which show the mural tagged with phrases like “abolish capitalism,” “ACAB,” “no good cops in a racist system,” & “abolish ICE”.

“The funniest thing about this is… the city of Seattle is paying me to do this, so it’s beautiful, you know what I’m saying,” the live streamer says while laughing.

He also makes clear that BLM is “coming for” Mayor Jenny Durkan next, despite her literally overseeing financial aid to the agitators.

The mural is also tagged with the words “100% Antifa,” a reference to the manifesto of Antifa terrorist Michael Reinoehl who murdered Trump supporter Aaron Danielson in cold blood in Portland in late August.

SDOT announced that it will maintaining the integrity of the mural, which deteriorates much faster than other surfaces, and that the total cost will remain unknown until the project is finished.

“Imagine thinking you’re a revolutionary fighting the system when you’re getting paid by the system to take part in said “revolution,” writes Chris Menahan.

One fears for the future of cities like Seattle given that the controlling authorities, not merely the rioters, are pro-Antifa.

As we highlighted yesterday, the likely next Mayor of Portland is also a vehement Antifa supporter and recently wore a skirt which championed the legacy of Chairman Mao, the Communist dictator who was responsible for the deaths of around 50 million people.

Video: White BLM Supporters Flee From Black Trump Supporters in Cleveland

Optics check?

Published

on

Video Screenshot

Video footage from outside the debate venue in Cleveland last night shows white leftist BLM supporters fleeing after they are confronted and out-argued by black Trump supporters.

The incident took place during a 5 hour-plus live stream broadcast by YouTuber Baked Alaska.

The initial argument took place between Baked Alaska and Biden supporters dressed as doctors. As the two groups debated abortion, one of the Biden supporters sardonically attempted to hand Baked Alaska a face mask as his friend, who is seen wearing an ‘I can’t breathe’ face mask, then tries to get in the YouTuber’s face.

However, the atmosphere suddenly changed when several black Trump supporters joined the fray, eventually prompting the white BLM leftists to flee in panic at the dreadful optics of them supposedly supporting ‘Black Lives Matter’ while shouting at black people and telling them to shut up.

“She told me to shut the F up,” a black Trump supporter tells the camera as the white BLM female begins to get triggered.

“They don’t care about black lives,” says the Trump supporter, adding, “They think it’s 1868…white Democrats used to hang us from trees, they used to burn our churches,” as the white ‘I can’t breathe’ mask wearer begins to make a hasty retreat.

“If you can’t breathe, you need to take that mask off,” the Trump supporter jokes, adding, “They’re want to appropriate some slogan because they support thugs.”

Another group of BLM leftists then walk by and are opposed by a black female Trump supporter who tells them, “All lives matter.”

The same woman then confronts a white pro-abortion female and tells her, “Black baby’s lives matter,” before the leftist’s friend almost immediately drags her away and the two flee.

They are followed by an African-American man with a ‘Burn Loot Murder’ sign who is challenged by the leftists to answer how unwanted babies are going to be taken care of if abortion is outlawed.
“It’s called adoption and foster care, I have three adopted children in my family,” responds the black Trump supporter.”

The pro-abortion leftist begins screeching and is then encouraged to leave by her friends for a second time as the group continues to try to flee.

“Get to steppin’ you racist liberal, get across that street!” the black Trump supporter shouts at them.

The same individual then confronts another white BLM supporter, telling him, “We don’t need no white savior, we’ve got Jesus!”

The white woman who previously screeched at the African-American man then gets back in his face and starts jabbing her finger at him before asserting that she understands black people because she works in a black area of the city.

However, when she is asked where she lives, she admits it’s not in the same area.

A separate African-American Trump supporter then informs the woman about how Biden is an “ass grabber” who likes to assault women.

The white leftist then claims Trump assaults women, but is unable to cite any actual evidence.

“We’ve got video evidence, we’ve got videotape, show me a videotape of a woman getting her ass grabbed by Trump,” the black Trump supporter tells her.

The group then flees the scene for a third time.

The video is well worth a watch to see how truly stumped and vitriolic leftists are towards black people when they dare to disagree with them.
