Yeah. I think that's common with most people when it comes to envy of success, but poor people take that to another level.

Well, back to my point...Gonzales if we're going with AGs.


Are you just going to ignore Bobby Kennedy?

Bobby Kennedy? Are you kidding? He's a Tea Partier. I saw a Merv Griffin interview with him where he talked about the breakdown of the black family, the destructive nature of welfare policies, and other right wing theories.

Okay, the American Anthropological Association has decided to launch an "academic boycott" of Israel over Palestine. My friend is understandably distraught but I think it might be because there's finally a SJW boycott she can't get behind and be morally indignant over.

Does the American Anthropological Association know how much time and money Israel has put into preserving historical objects and sites?

Did you seriously just try to introduce reason into a SJW boycott?

Wouldn't surprise me if Muslim countries with much more historical sites put pressure on them.

Palestinian society is a mess and this kind of nonsense doesn't help.

Meh, looks like they offered BLM their own special rec room/safe space, and then promised to form a bunch of committees and that kind of thing. Thats not really caving.

Apart from the name change and murals, the school will fund faculty and departments that will coach students on how to demand more changes and they will institute a mandatory course on why that is a good thing. At least Eisengruber is promising to consider/advocate for those things. It may be that he hoping the trustees will say no.

Theo Menon, a Minnesota Student Association representative and member of the College Republicans, realized that the university wasn’t doing anything to memorialize 9/11; on Oct. 6, he introduced an MSA proposal to do just that.

 

“The passing of this resolution might make a space that is unsafe for students on campus even more unsafe,” said Algadi. “Islamophobia and racism fueled through that are alive and well.”

 

Hey, David Algadi... kuss immak.

This was posted somewhere here recently. It's stupid, but the idea of a 9/11 remembrance is just as stupid. Stop wasting time on that shit and get on with it.

Here's a truly horrible example of the double standard,

University of Kansas professor placed on leave after using racial slur in class discussion


http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/11/22/university-kansas-professor-placed-on-leave-after-using-racial-slur-in-class/

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 80

Here is the vile racist, Andrea Quenette. Certainly, according to the snowflakes, her life and livelihood should be shattered if she is guilty of using the word Nigger, once in her class, in a non-threatening and non-racist way !!! It is time to respond to the precious lib snowflakes and their feigned BS claims.
