Black females are the absolute bottom economically and socially out of every race, gender, and creed. They’re the least married, least desired, most single, earn the lowest wages, are the poorest, highest in poverty, highest on welfare, etc.
And when black women do work and are not laying up collecting welfare and government assistance like they normally do, it’s some low wage job. Black women all overepresent low wage jobs and earn the lowest pay overall.
They also have the highest rates of breast cancer deaths.
Yes, cardiovascularar and obesity related illnesses are leading causes of death for black women.
Black women are going bankrupt:
Maybe it’s has something to do with this:
Black women make up 8% of the population, yet make up the largest consumers, despite being the most broke, powerless, poverty living, government assistance mooching females in the country.
Have a medium worth of $5.
And 10.6% of you bums are unemployed!
A teenager was arrested as he made his way to behead a British soldier, the Old Bailey has heard.
Brusthom Ziamani, 19, had a rucksack containing a 12in knife, a hammer and an “Islamic flag” when he was held on a street in east London in August 2014.
He idolised the killers of Fusilier Lee Rigby, researched Army cadet base sites and told an ex-girlfriend of a plan to “kill soldiers”, the court was told.
Mr Ziamani, of Camberwell, London, denies preparing an act of terrorism.
Jurors heard Mr Ziamani had converted to Islam in early 2014 and his arrest came after he had shown the former girlfriend the weapons and described Fusilier Rigby’s killer Michael Adebolajo as a “legend”.
Prosecutor Annabel Darlow told the court: “He didn’t say anything when he was arrested but he was remanded and told a security officer that he had been on his way to kill a British soldier at an Army barracks when he had been arrested.
“He said that he was going to behead the soldier and hold that soldier’s head up in the air so that a friend could take a photograph.
“You may think that his aim was to emulate the dubious feats of his hero Michael Adebolajo, who had murdered a British soldier close to the Woolwich barracks where he worked.”
The jury heard Mr Ziamani also put posts on Facebook under the name Mujahid Karim, supporting Sharia law and stating he was “willing to die in the cause of Allah”.
Mr Ziamani is charged with preparing an act of terrorism on or before 20 August 2014.
City University of New York’s Graduate Center tells faculty to ‘eliminate use of gendered salutations and references’
Professors and other employees at the City University of New York’s Graduate Center have been forbidden from addressing students and prospective students with the title “Mr.” and “Ms.” because, campus leaders say, the terms may be offensive.
“Effective Spring 2015, the (graduate center’s) policy is to eliminate the use of gendered salutations and references in correspondence to students, prospective students, and third parties,” Louise Lennihan, interim provost, states to employees in a recent memo. “Accordingly, Mr. and Ms. should be omitted from salutations.”
Lennihan instructs staffers to interpret the new policy “as broadly as possible,” that it applies to “all types of correspondence, such as: all parts of any letter including address and salutation, mailing labels, bills or invoices, and any other forms or reports,” states the memo, a copy of which was provided to The College Fix by school spokeswoman Tanya Domi.
Rather than using “Mr.” or “Ms.,” staff are instructed to refer to students by his or her full name. The policy will “ensure a respectful, welcoming, and gender-inclusive learning environment … [and] accommodate properly the diverse population of current and prospective students,” Lennihan states in the memo.
The Graduate Center is the principal doctorate-granting institution of the City University of New York. It employees more than 140 teachers educating about 4,200 students in graduate and doctoral programs, according to its website.
School spokeswoman Domi told The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the new policy, that it aims to work “within a regulatory framework to comply with Title IX legal principles.”
But Ari Cohn, free speech lawyer and advocate at the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, took issue with the spokeswoman’s suggestion that Title IX requires or even encourages a policy similar to the one the graduate center has implemented.
“Title IX prohibits discrimination—nothing more,” he said in an email to The College Fix. “Unfortunately, this problematic justification is emblematic of a pattern that FIRE is increasingly concerned by: Title IX is being turned into a Swiss army knife that can be used by colleges and universities to justify (and provide political cover for) virtually any academic or institutional policy even tangentially related to sex or gender.”
Cohn also questioned whether the policy will intrude on academic freedom.
“A strict mandate would impose on the way professors conduct their classes—traditionally the domain in which they have the most autonomy,” he said.
Several CUNY professors did not respond to emails from The College Fix seeking comment.
Professor Juliette Blevins, a linguistics professor at the graduate center, has voiced reservations about the policy. She told the Wall Street Journal that dropping gender-specific titles may not enhance respect and inclusivity as it purports.
On the contrary, in some cultures, it is disrespectful to address a person without a salutation, she argued.
“[T]he policy, as it now stands—which encourages use of first and last name, without title—enforces one particular view of what is or is not ‘gender-inclusive’ without considering the negative effects it could have cross-culturally,” she said.
The internal memo was sent Jan. 16. It has since prompted robust debate among academic circles across New York City and beyond.
“If a student asked me to call him ‘Godzilla,’ I would happily call him ‘Godzilla’ or whatever anyone asked to be called,” Joseph Borelli, a Republican state Assemblyman who teaches a politics course at CUNY’s College of Staten Island, told the Journal. “But we do not need another ultra PC policy change.”
The memo makes no mention of how professors should act if a student wishes to be addressed with a traditional salutation.
“It’s difficult to find a principled reason why the perspectives of those who prefer traditional salutations should be valued less than the perspectives of those who favor their abandonment, and that is precisely why language policing is best avoided altogether—it always entails making distinctions based on subjective preferences for a particular viewpoint,” Cohn said.
College Fix contributor Alexandra Zimmern is recent graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Dozens of posters plastered across the University of Michigan caution students not to say things that might hurt others’ feelings, part of a new “Inclusive Language Campaign” at the state’s flagship public university that cost $16,000 to implement.
Words declared unacceptable through the campaign include “crazy,” “insane,” “retarded,” “gay,” “tranny,” “gypped,” “illegal alien,” “fag,” “ghetto” and “raghead.” Phrases such as “I want to die” and “that test raped me” are also verboten.
University spokesman Rick Fitzgerald told The College Fix in an email the campaign aims to “address campus climate by helping individuals understand that their words can impact someone and to encourage individuals to commit to creating a positive campus community.”
Students have been asked to sign a pledge to “use inclusive language” and to help their peers “understand the importance of using inclusive language,” according to campaign materials.
Though only in existence for one semester, the Inclusive Language Campaign has maintained a strong presence throughout the university. Students roaming the campus frequently encounter posters of all sizes reminding them: “YOUR WORDS MATTER,” and asking questions such as: “If you knew that I grew up in poverty, would you still call things ‘ghetto’ and ‘ratchet’?”
Representatives of the Inclusive Language Campaign did not respond to repeated requests for comment from The College Fix.
Junior Kidada Malloy, who helps promote the program on campus, told the Michigan Daily the campaign “is a great program because it will improve the day-to-day language of students on campus by providing education around words that are offensive.”
Fitzgerald told The College Fix the university budgeted $16,000 for the campaign. The program comes at a time when the university has raised tuition and fees for the last two consecutive years.
Men, you don’t count!
You have NO VALUE!
That is the absolute truth according to President Obama.
Just released budget documents from the President proposed budget for 2016 recommends that ALL CDC funding for Prostate Cancer be eliminated!
Let me make this clear, no, the President is not recommending that Prostate Cancer funds be cut, he is recommending that they be entirely eliminated (by 100%) from the CD’s budget! That’s right I said eliminated, gone, no money at all.
President Obama has lost sight that prostate cancer remains the second leading cause of cancer death among men but his budget request entirely eliminates prostate cancer funding at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Malecare is shocked to see this request, no I mean attack on men. Malecare will advocate not for a reinstatement of the CDC budget, but for an increase so that there will be a greater awareness of prostate cancer. Given the current state of the PSA test as a diagnostic tool it is ever more important that discussions continue between patients and their healthcare providers regarding screening decisions.
The work of the CDC to educate both patients and providers is pivotal to insure that fair and balanced discussions take place.
Information on the proposed FY 2016 budget for prostate cancer can be found at: http://www.cdc.gov/injury/pdfs/budget/cdc_fy2016_pb_overview_table.pdf
Malecare will strive to reverse this budget request. Malecare is reaching out to all cancer advocacy organizations as well as the prostate cancer organizations to work together to protect the CDC’s prostate cancer budget.
Please let me know if you are with Malecare. Please send an email, including your city, state and zip code to: firstname.lastname@example.org We’re asking for your location to help us understand which Congressional districts we might have influence.
Write to your congressional representatives and to your Senators.
Protect the prostate cancer CDC budget.
When was the last time an Asian American actor starred in a major Hollywood film as the handsome romantic lead? Exactly. Sadly, that’s been the missing scene, if you will, in U.S. studio-released motion pictures. Certainly, there’s no shortage of attractive actors of Asian ancestry in America to play those romantic roles. Yet, Hollywood studios continue ignoring them as leads. Speculation points to institutionalized racism of studio executives who still stereotype Asian men as too emasculated to play sexualized or romantic characters.
Writer/director Steven J. Kung was so troubled by the obvious exclusion of Asian American actors as leads that he made a movie about it. In A Leading Man, Kung pontificates about disparity in the film industry through a young, urbane actor named GQ Qi (Jack Yang). While GQ considers himself leading-man material, he can’t seem to convince casting directors of it. That’s not surprising given that he’s Taiwanese American. He can look glamorous in a white collar, cuffs, and tie. He can sip elegantly from a wineglass without spilling a drop. He can even “get the girl.” But how come the suave and sophisticated GQ can’t get a role that doesn’t require speaking heavily accented broken English?
After winning the role of a foreign exchange student on a TV series, GQ is elated until he learns that the producer sees his character as a caricature. After all, what student from China meets his American host family dressed in a Chinese silk jacket and coolie hat? But that’s what producer Bruno Oliver (Mitch Lebowitz) requests of GQ. In fact, he demands that GQ be “more Chinese” by bucking his teeth and talking as if he were illiterate. With the name Kung Pao (yes, as in the spicy stir-fried dish), GQ’s character seems to endlessly bow and scrape to the white family he lives with. When GQ protests a scene where Kung Pao erects a shrine to his ancestors at the dinner table, Bruno is livid. As far removed from a leading man as he can get, GQ finally loses his cool and is promptly fired.
Already under pressure by his mother to get a real job with the family business in Taiwan, GQ is ashamed to admit he’s no longer employed. At restaurant gatherings with his extended family (that seem to be disproportionately comprised of Harvard grads), he’s already the butt of their jokes over his inability to pick up the tab. Seriously considering his options, GQ begins dating a powerful white female casting director, Rachel, very capably played by Heather Mazur. Although GQ’s intentions aren’t all that honorable, Rachel is sincere about her feelings, which makes their situation a sticky one. Hoping Rachel can salvage his career, GQ soon moves in with her.
The interrogation of an Iranian citizen apprehended by the Free Syrian Army reveals the military and terrorist infrastructure that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps and Hizbullah have built on the Syrian Golan, which, according to the IDF’s intelligence branch, is also directed at Israel.
On February 3, 2015, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, accompanied by Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, visited the Hermon Brigade and IDF outposts that keep watch on the Syrian and Lebanese border at Har Dov and on the Golan Heights. The newspaper Israel Hayom reported that during the visit Netanyahu addressed the military and terrorist threat to Israel that Iran has positioned at the Syrian border.1
The paper quoted him as saying, “I came here with the defense minister and IDF commanders to view the IDF’s deployment against the threats developing on the Golan Heights.” Netanyahu added that “Iran is trying to open a new front here, in addition to the fronts in southern Lebanon and the Gaza Strip.”
Defense Minister Yaalon said during the visit, “Iran has been stepping up its effort to open a front against us on the Golan Heights. This is the Iran that sends contingents to Afghanistan and Iraq, to Lebanon, to Syria and Yemen. Wherever Iran is involved there is no stability.”
An official document of the Free Syrian Army (February 5, 2015) confirms Israeli intelligence assessments regarding Iran and Hizbullah’s military presence on the Syrian Golan, based on the initial interrogation of an Iranian citizen who was apprehended by the rebels. Below is a translation of the document, which is written in Arabic:2
Police are now arresting a suspected terrorist every day with ministers poised to boost funding amid fears of attacks from Isil “misfits and criminals”.
Metropolitan assistant commissioner Mark Rowley revealed fanatics were being detained on a daily basis following a sharp rise in arrests because of the growing threat from Islamist jihadists.
Mr Rowley, the country’s most senior counter-terrorism officer, said he had been lobbying Government for additional funding to tackle the threat and there were “indications” that would happen.
He said the greatest danger to the UK were “misfits, criminals and vulnerable” who were being targeted by Isil to carry out atrocities on home soil.
Police are also taking down 1,000 web pages of extremist material every week.
“Heteronormativity and gender roles also rear their ugly heads on Valentine’s Day. Gifts for ‘him’ or ‘her’ are clearly divided and marked and it’s almost impossible to find cards that represent queer couples. . . .
“It’s not hard to see why Valentine’s Day is problematic for many feminists. Celebrated traditionally, Valentine’s Day magnifies many of the very systems of domination that we work to critique and dismantle.”
Yes, it’s tragic that advertisers and greeting card companies aim their marketing efforts at the normal 98% of us, rather than pander to the 2% niche market of LGBT-OMG-BBQ-WTF.
Pink Triangle Services has graciously let us use a board room at their office to host a feminist mixer to get together to make Valentine (or Anti-Valentine) Day cards.
We will be supplying card stock and supplies, as well as lots of non-hetero-normative, queer and non-binary card ideas! There will also be tea and candy.
This event is *FREE* but we are asking for a $5 donation if you are able to help cover some supplies and to give back to PTS.
PTS is a safe space*, we are asking everyone to be kind and considerate of the other attendees ie: ask for proper pronouns. Please no strong perfumes. There are non-binary washrooms available. There is an elevator if needed. PTS office is on the 2nd floor of the building.
PTS is having their Women’s Night who will also be welcomed to join.
Everyone is welcomed! Please spread this event.
*friendly reminder that safe space is not the same as an empowered space.
“Gee, Stacy, how do you find these kooks?”
You have to dive headfirst into the craziness, my friends. So I wassearching Twitter for “heteronormativity” — one of the buzzwords of Women’s Studies, an academic swamp crowded with lesbian radicals — when I discovered Ms. Spagnoli boasting of her success in promoting her queer Valentine’s Day event on social media:
Ayn Rand once wrote, “Show me the woman [a man] sleeps with and I will tell you his valuation of himself.” If this applies to American men in general, our nation is rocketing towards Gomorrah like a fat kid on a water slide. No less than an authority than the New York Times has declared that booty is in, with pop singers and movie stars like Iggy Azalea and Beyonce showing off their asses and music videos for songs like “Booty” providing a butt buffet for America’s simpletons.
This is not a good thing.
I don’t mean to trample on anyone’s preferences, but America’s increasing ass addiction is further evidence of our decline as a society. Not only is booty worship associated with primitive, backwards cultures, but America’s burgeoning butt cult is yet another expression of female narcissism. By cheering on the likes of Meghan Trainor and other ambassadors of ass, you are helping perpetuate the degradation of women into fat, self-centered sluts.
It’s universally accepted that a man’s preferences in female beauty are indicative of his class and attitude. Historically, ass fixations were considered trashy, because butts signify the primal and hearken back to our animal origins. Boobs were associated with working-class men (think the original Playboy), while legs were the preference of the upper classes because they signified good breeding (since height is an indicator of good nutrition and genes).
This was confirmed by a recent Pornhub study analyzing the types of search strings their sites get. The map below displays whether boob or butt searches are more popular in certain countries:
As you can see, asses are preferred in Africa, South America, and the Middle East, regions known for their crushing poverty and corrupt governments. The civilized, wealthy nations of the world, from Europe to Asia, prefer boobs. Egypt and Argentina, historically the most advanced countries on their respective continents, also prefer boobs. The U.S. is the only first world nation in the Butt column, and that’s primarily because of our large black and Latino populations.
Looking at a state-by-state breakdown, we see the exact same pattern. The states where boobs reign are the whitest ones, as well as the ones with the highest quality of life, the least corrupt governments, and the lowest crime rates. Vote Ass if you enjoy paying 50 percent of your taxes to a government that can’t even pave the roads or protect you from criminals, while your city devolves into a third world cesspool.
So maybe you think my civilizational explanation is cracked out, or you just don’t care about the fate of the U.S. But even if that’s the case, there’s still a very good reason to oppose the MSM’s booty crusade: it’s feeding the self-absorption of young women.
The reason why asses are considered low-class is because developing a big ass requires less discipline then any other female beauty standard. The butt is the only part of a woman’s anatomy that improves when she gains weight. Contrary to what fat girls think, getting obese doesn’t make for better boobs, because a fatty’s tits are veiny, distended, and saggy. Absolutely no effort is required for a girl to get a big ass; perfect for a nation in which the majority of women are turning into cellulite-ridden hambeasts.
This is the most troubling aspect of America’s butt cult: virtually all the ass anthems being pushed by the media are paeans of self-love. Take the video for Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” as an example:
Trainor is a fat white girl rapping about how she’s fine just the way she is, how beauty standards that expect her to cut down on the bon-bons are oppressive, and denigrating women who have “stick figure,” “Barbie doll” physiques. The message to girls is clear: don’t work on yourself, don’t take care of your body, and any man repulsed by your undulating stomach flab and toilet paper-infested asscrack is a meanie misogynist.
The same attitude is present in last year’s other major butt worship song, Jennifer Lopez’s “Booty.” When that video first came out, I was talking about it with some friends and one commented on how anhedonic and unsexy it was. I told him that “Booty” wasn’t supposed to be sexy. J.Lo and Iggy Azalea aren’t flaunting their butts because they want to look hot for men, they’re doing it out of narcissism: “You better worship my big booty, or else!”
Contrast these music videos to Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back,” which ass-lovers point to as an example of how butts have gone mainstream. “Baby Got Back” is sexy and appealing because it was sung from a man’s perspective, about what men liked. It wasn’t even representative of black America’s tastes, because the majority of attractive black women didn’t emphasize their butts, even going all the way back to the sixties (NSFW link).
The current crop of ass anthems are by women, about women, and are about shaming men for not giving these women the deference they think they deserve. What you prefer as a man is irrelevant: big booty is the only item on the menu, and if you don’t like it, you can starve for all they care.
It’s fine to prefer booty, but the left never stops at tolerance. Gay rights were originally sold to the public with the “tolerance” canard, but in the year 2015, Christian bakers are getting sued left and right for refusing to make gay wedding cakes. Eventually, if you don’t worship the flabby ass of every narwhal lumbering down the street, you’ll be treated like you’re personally jamming your finger down the throat of every bulimic in America.
Again, if you like asses, there’s no problem with that. But the booty cult being pushed by the mainstream media isn’t the product of what men want, it’s yet another way to bolster the already inflated egos of women. Iggy Azalea, Meghan Trainor and their ilk are horsewomen of the female narcissism apocalypse, slipping poison in the ears of this nation’s already slovenly, slutty, selfish girls.
