A marketing executive who was fired for being a white male and replaced by two woman, one of whom was black, as part of a diversity goal, has been awarded a $10 million dollar discrimination payout.

David Duvall sued Novant Health in North Carolina after working there for five years as the Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communication and receiving plaudits for his contribution.

However, Duvall was terminated shortly before reaching an anniversary that would have secured him a higher severance pay than he was given.

As part of the company’s “diversity and inclusion program,” Duvall was “replaced by two women – Kate Everett, a white woman who had worked with him and was promoted to take the role of Chief PR and Communications Officer and Vicky Free, a black woman who was given the role of Chief Marketing Officer,” reports the Daily Mail.

Duvall’s attorneys argued that he was fired “because he was a white man” and was sacrificed so the company could meet its five year plan to boost diversity by 2020.

“They said he wasn’t the only white executive fired; in his complaint, he says the Chief Legal Officer, Medical Group President, Chief Information Officer, Patient Experience Officer and President of Haymarket Medical Center were all replaced either by a black person or a woman in the 12-18 months after him.”

After a jury were convinced by the argument that Duvall was terminated for no other reason than his race and gender, the former exec won a $10 million reverse discrimination lawsuit.

“The jury was clearly sending a message to punish Novant for doing this,” Fox 46 Charlotte’s Seema Iyer said.

“Duvall was a strong advocate of diversity at Novant,” said S. Luke Largess of Charlotte, Duvall’s attorney. “We believe the punitive damages award is a message that an employer cannot terminate and replace employees in order to achieve greater diversity in the workforce.”

As we previously highlighted, a prestigious art museum in Chicago fired hundreds of unpaid volunteers and replaced them with paid workers because they were too white.

A similar thing happened last month when the English Touring Opera (ETO) kicked out half of its orchestral players in an effort to prioritize “increased diversity in the orchestra.”

This is another reminder that the only form of ‘acceptable’ institutionalized racism is targeted against white people.

The fact that Duvall won however should set a good precedent that makes this less likely to happen in future.

Video: Biden Education Secretary Says Biological Males Should Be Allowed To Compete In Girls’ Sport

Refuses to answer question on whether school districts should keep a child’s involvement in gender transition a secret from parents

Joe Biden’s Education Secretary declared Thursday that he believes biological boys should be allowed to compete against girls in sports, and even accused his questioner, GOP Congressman Jim Banks, of wanting to exclude children by discussing their biological gender.

During a Congressional hearing, Banks questioned Cardona on the administration’s attitude toward “gender identity”.

Banks told Cardona that “Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex. However, your department is currently pushing a rule to force every school in America to add non binary as a sex characteristic.”

“How can the Department of Education enforce sex based discrimination when the very definition of sex is so unclear?” Banks asked.

“We’re not pushing for that. We are allowing states who have different categories to use those different categories of data collection that they’re already collecting,” Cardona claimed.

“So you’re not waiting for a rule to add non binary?” Banks further asked Cardona.

“We’re allowing states to report whatever classifications they have in their states,” Cardona responded.

Banks then moved to probe on the sports issue, asking “do you believe that biological male athletes competing in women’s sports are in conflict with Title IX protections for female athletes?” 

After failing to properly answer the question, Banks doubled down, asking “Do you think it’s fair for biological boys to compete against girls in sports?”

Cardona responded “Sir, I see where your questions are going, and I’m going to be very clear with you — our transgender students need to feel supported, included, and seen,” adding “And, your line of questioning is, even by describing it the way you’re doing it, shows me that you don’t believe that all students should have access to the extracurricular activities that schools provide.”

Banks told Cardona that “somehow, somewhere you and this administration believe that Title IX somehow protects biological boys for competing against girls and sports. You’re okay with that.”

Watch:

The Congressman then asked Cardona three times if he agrees “that school districts should keep a child’s involvement in gender transition a secret from their parents?”

Cardona again did not properly answer the question, instead referring to such situations as “very sensitive.”

Watch:

Before he took up the position of Education Secretary, Cardona made it clear during his Senate confirmation hearing that he supports biological males competing against girls in sports.

“I think it’s critically important to respect the rights of all students, including students who are transgender, and that they are afforded the opportunities that every other student has to participate in extracurricular actives,” Cardona said at the time under questioning from Senator Rand Paul, who noted that such a development would “completely destroy girls athletics”.

Paul told Cardona “A lot of us think that that’s bizarre, you know? Not very fair,” adding “I think most people in the country think it’s bizarre. You know? That it’s just completely bizarre and unfair that people, and you’re gonna run the education? You’ve got no problem with it?”

“I mean, to think it’s okay that boys would compete with girls in a track meet, and that somehow would be fair,” the Kentucky senator continued, positing “I wonder where feminists are on this. I wonder where the people who supported women’s sports are on this.”

    Video: Ted Cruz Gets In The Face Of Brit Journalist Who Blames “American Exceptionalism” For Mass Shootings

    “Stop being a propagandist”

    Texas Senator Ted Cruz lost his patience with a British journalist who kept on badgering him, asking why America is the global epicentre of mass shootings and blaming “American exceptionalism”.

    Cruz had just finished a press conference when Sky News reporter Mark Stone confronted him, asking “Is this the moment to reform gun laws?”

    “You know, it’s easy to go to politics,” Cruz responded prompting the reporter to interject “But it’s important. It’s at the heart of the issue.”

    “I get that that’s where the media likes to go,” Cruz replied, to which the reporter responded “But it’s not. It’s where many of the people we’ve talked to here like to go.”

    Cruz again attempted to answer the question before being interrupted, stating “The proposals from Democrats and the media inevitably, when some violent psychopath murders people —” .

    “A violent psychopath is able to get a weapon so easily,” Stone chimed in, adding “an Eighteen-year old with two AR-15s.”

    Cruz again attempted to address the question, saying “If you want to stop violent crime, the proposals the Democrats have — none of them would have stopped this.”

    “But why does this only happen in your country?” Stone continued, adding “I really think that’s what many people around the world, just — they cannot fathom why only in America? Why is this American exceptionalism so awful?”

    “You know, I’m sorry you think American exceptionalism is awful,” Cruz hit back.

    “This aspect of it. This aspect of it,” the reporter said walking back the statement somewhat.

    “You know what? You’ve got your political agenda. God love you,” Cruz responded, beginning to walk away.

    The reporter wouldn’t let it go and continued to hound Cruz, stating “I just want to understand why you do not think that guns are the problem. It is just an American problem, sir.”

    Then another reporter shouted “Mr. Cruz, why is America the only country that faces this kind of mass shooting?” as Stone repeatedly yelled “You can’t answer that”.

    Cruz, clearly exasperated turned to Stone and said “Why is it that people come from all over the world to America? Because it’s the freest, most prosperous, safest country on Earth.”

    “And stop being a propagandist,” Cruz added for good measure.

    Watch:

    As we noted earlier, anti-Second amendment sentiment began almost immediately in the wake of the shooting, with the media fanning the likes of Michael Moore who literally said the right to bear arms should be scrapped, followed by Joe Biden himself declaring “the Second Amendment is not absolute.”

    Biden Says “The Second Amendment Is Not Absolute”

    Claims “there’s always been limitations”

    Published

    Joe Biden declared Wednesday during remarks on the Texas school shooting that the right to bear arms in the U.S. is “not absolute”.

    After signing an executive order to reform policing, and wheeling out George Floyd’s family for the press, Biden addressed the shooting, saying he “just sick and tired.”

    “When in God’s name will we do what needs to be done to, if not completely stop, fundamentally change the amount of the carnage that goes on in this country?” Biden continued.

    Then came the kicker.

    “The Second Amendment is not absolute. When it was passed, you couldn’t own a cannon…there’s always been limitations,” Biden proclaimed.

    Watch:

    Biden continually makes this argument. Just last month, he repeatedly lied during a gun control speech, claiming that from its very inception the Second Amendment never allowed for Americans to own any firearms they desire.

    Really? “Certain people from the very beginning weren’t allowed to purchase guns.”

    That’s just plainly false.

    It isn’t the first time Biden has made this claim. When he was running against Trump, Biden outlined his gun control manifesto, and further claimed “From the very beginning you weren’t allowed to have certain weapons,” adding “You weren’t allowed to own a cannon during the Revolutionary War as an individual.” 

    Biden’s claim has been fact checked and found to be completely false.

    The Washington Post wrote that “Some readers might think this is a relatively inconsequential flub. But we disagree,” adding “Every U.S. president has a responsibility to get American history correct, especially when he’s using a supposed history lesson in service of a political objective.”

    “The president’s push for more gun restrictions is an important part of his political platform, so he undercuts his cause when he cites faux facts,” the Post added.

    As we noted yesterday, a whole host of anti-Second Amendment actors again jumped to action within minutes of the horrific event in Texas to play politics.

    Michael Moore literally called for immediately scrapping the Second Amendment.

    In response, Florida Congressman Randy Fine tweeted that Biden should “try to take our guns and you’ll learn why the Second Amendment was written in the first place.”

    Anti-gun ‘activists’ accused Fine of “threatening gun violence,” and immediately alerted the authorties:

    In response, Fine told Florida Today that “Joe Biden needs to learn a history lesson,” adding that “The history of our nation is predicated on people being afraid of an overbearing federal government.”

    “Joe Biden can go on TV and not wait one minute before he blames Republicans and demands our guns be seized. That’s apparently ‘peace and unity.’ We respond and we’re riling people up,” Fine further asserted, adding that “If the president of the United States wants to politicize a tragedy, he should expect people to get angry in return.”
