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.

Watch: Psaki Says Biden Will Continue To Call Americans Who Do Not Support Him ‘Extremists’

After Joe Biden declared Wednesday that “MAGA is the most extreme political organization” in US history, reporters questioned White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki if Americans should expect that kind of rhetoric to continue, and she said yes.

CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins noted that Biden “was sharply critical of the MAGA crowd,” asking Psaki “is that what we should expect to speak his message going into the midterms?”

Psaki responded, “I would expect you will hear” more of this rhetoric from Biden “over the next coming months.”

Watch:

When another reporter asked a similar question, noting how divisive the language is, Psaki responded “I think the president will be judged by Americans by his actions.”

Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy noted that Biden also claimed that Republicans might use the overturning of Roe vs Wade  segregate LGBTQ children from the other children in classrooms.

Doocy noted “The president said today, ‘What happens if you have states change the law saying that children who are LGBTQ can’t be in classrooms with other children?’” asking Psaki “What is he talking about?”

Psaki responded by using the word “extreme” again, asserting that “we don’t know what they’re capable of given what they’ve already done to date.”

“Which state is trying to segregate LGBTQ children in the classroom?” Doocy further probed.

Psaki again went to the “extreme”.

“Well, I think we’ve seen laws that are incredibly discriminatory. That’s what the President’s referring to and the fact that he doesn’t know what additional steps could be taken by extreme wings of the party that would rather divide rather than work on issues that the American people actually are focused on actually impacting them,” she responded.

    Adam Schiff: “I Don’t Care How the Draft Leaked”

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman tries to downplay unprecedented breach.

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff asserted, “I don’t care how the draft leaked” in response to the Roe v Wade decision leak, despite it representing an unprecedented breach in Supreme Court history.

    “I don’t care how the draft leaked. That’s a sideshow,” tweeted Schiff.

    “What I care about is that a small number of conservative justices, who lied about their plans to the Senate, intend to deprive millions of women of reproductive care. Codifying Roe isn’t enough. We must expand the court,” he added.

    As Breitbart reports, Schiff’s response is similar to how he attempted to protect the identity of the leaker of President Donald Trump’s classified call with the Ukrainian president.

    “Schiff, during Trump’s impeachment hearings, sought to interfere with Republicans’ questioning when it came to the identity of the leaker,” writes Kristina Wong.

    Speculation is rife as to the identity of the leaker, with some commentators calling for them to be arrested.

    The only people with access to the original document were the nine justices and their 36 law clerks, meaning it’s almost certain that one of the 36 law clerks leaked the document.

    When you consider that each justice has four clerks working for them, that probably narrows it down to one of 16 clerks working for the four Democrat-appointed justices.

    Conservative commentator Will Chamberlain was pilloried by the media for suggesting that the individual is almost certainly Elizabeth Deutsch, who is currently a law clerk for Justice Breyer.

    “I certainly think someone who has spent much of their academic and professional life fighting to expand the right to get an abortion could be desperate enough to do so,” tweeted Chamberlain.

    Watch: Tucker Carlson Reminds America That Its Current President Voted AGAINST Roe Vs Wade

    “Biden concluded Roe had gone ‘too far.'”

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson noted Tuesday that Joe Biden voted against Roe vs Wade when he was a Senator, favouring making it a State issue, rather than a decision that should be made by the Supreme Court.

    Carlson told viewers that “Joe Biden has always supported legal abortion, but nine years after the Roe decision was handed down, he was still willing to admit it was indefensible as a legal decision.”

    The host continued, “Pregnant women, Biden explained in 1982 as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, should not have “the sole right to say what should happen” to their unborn children, because, after all, no one creates children alone. It takes two people. That’s obvious.”

    “In fact, Biden concluded Roe had gone ‘too far.’ And of course, it had gone too far. That was obvious then. It’s obvious now. Then, as now, many Americans believe that abortion is murder. Many other Americans consider abortion a prerequisite to happiness,” Carlson further noted.

    During the monologue, Carlson called Roe vs Wade “the most embarrassing court decision handed down in the last century,” but noted that the leak of the draft opinion written by conservative Justice Samuel Alito was dangerous and that “people could get hurt”.

    Carlson suggested that the leak was an intentional attempt to pressure conservative justices not to go through with overturning the ruling.

    Watch:

    Recent polls have revealed that almost half of Americans believe that states should decide for themselves on the issue of abortion, with many of the opinion that terminations should be capped at 15 weeks.

    In a Marist poll, 44% of people said it should be down to individual states to decide, while 48% said they would support the same law to apply after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

    A Wall Street Journal poll also found 42% would support a ban on abortion after 6 weeks, while 48% supported a ban after 15 weeks.

    A Gallup poll also found that 48% believe abortion should only be legal under certain circumstances.
