I am now running my annual July fund-raising campaign to celebrate the twelfth anniversary of the establishment of Behind the Black. For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. These companies practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.

 

Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

 

Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.

 

Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

Brown University to offer segregated dinners to minorities

Bigoted academia: Brown University has received a $30K grant to offer segregated dinners for blacks and Muslim women.

The university received a $30,000 grant from the Association of American Colleges and Universities, which represents liberal arts schools, to create a campus center whose mission is to “break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative about race in the community,” according to The Brown Daily Herald.

These grants, provided with the assistance of the Newman’s Own Foundation and W.K. Kellogg Foundation, will go towards hosting racially and religiously segregated “dinner discussion groups.” These discussions are being led by Brown University Chaplain Rev. Janet Cooper Nelson, who told The Daily that “one [group will be] for black students and the other [will be for] for Muslim women on campus.”

Democrats created and controlled the south when segregation ruled. They now control all of academia, so no one should be surprised if they are once again encouraging the idea there.

It all comes down to bigotry. Modern academia is obsessed with race, gender, and ethnicity. It is all they see when they look at a person. Thus, it shapes everything they do, including building segregated societies founded on racial and ethnic hate. And we can see the long term result of this in what is happening in St. Louis this week.

Conscious Choice cover

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

 
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.

 

“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

    All and every worthwhile and “good” relationship begins with a personal philosophy of mutual respect and being tolerant of others differences as long as they are tolerant and respectful of yours. If you are not taught this or are able to figure it out for yourself during your existence you are doomed to be forever a Liberal, a Leftist, a racist, a bigot, a Marxist, a Communist, a NAZI, a Skin head, an institution of higher learning?

    This, like many things as of late driven by the Left while in the faux skin of the Democrat party is 180 degrees from rational and reasonable thinking and is just another reason why it is very correct to describe the Democrat party and the Liberals and Leftists that now populate it as being intellectually dishonest and subversive. Because that is plainly what they are and they threaten America.

    The Liberals / Leftists are so heavily invested in their doctrine of divide and conquer and not respecting all others that they have become what they profess to despise and they are unable to see what they have become. They have become ideological and political monsters.

    And there is only one thing to be done with monsters.

    (I was going to just allow that last sentence to hang there but decided to finish it least someone think I am now the monster)

    Monsters (political monsters) must be restricted and denied their forum and the power from which they operate from doing the harm that they would otherwise do if they were allowed to roam free and unopposed. This is true American political war.

    What a difference half a century on the Democratic Party’s plantation makes.

    Rosa Parks refuses to sit in the back of the bus in order to protest segregation, but now the left insists upon segregation as a form of “racial reconciliation.” The Democrat governors sicced the police and turned fire hoses on students who wanted to attend integrated schools, but today’s students demand segregation. The Democrats have made their victims of the pre-civil rights era into their victims once again, but this time the victims go willingly and eagerly to their fate. What was that sign that Dante pointed out? It reminds me of that Twilight Zone episode, “To Serve Man.”

    From the article: “build equitable communities

    Separate but equitable?

    Where, today, are those who protested segregation in the 1960s?

  • hondo

    Some of us actually favor such developments since they define and represent the fallacy of a multi-cultural/racial society.
    That these are within the academic world is a bonus – they will lead to strife and cannibalism within that community.

    You know, if you’re going to cast disparaging words on a whole group, and print quotes from other sources, you should at least quote from the source and not another rightwing rag. Far from being restrictive “segregated” meals, these are gatherings in which these minorities will be able to receive ideas and strategies to help them deal with asshats like you.

    Tallen Robertson–
    Do you classify all American citizens by their ethic background?

    No surprise democrat’s love segregation, they invented it.

    Tallen R:

    At what point are these children expected to grow up and engage the real world?

    “to engage and empower campus and community stakeholders to break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative about race in the community,”

    Let me interpret the above key sentence from the article you cite:

    *Lets spend a bunch of other peoples money to create a fictional narrative not related to the reality of the world about a pretend “reality” that makes us feel good about some differences that exist in our culture that were well on their way to being resolved for the most part because if we do not continue this fictional reality people will realize that all we are and have been was always intellectually dishonest in our own interests.*

    Its one long sentence but I think it sums it up, what do you think?

    In other words these “programs” are for the most part fraudulent “well intentioned” intellectualized Bovine Effluent and attempts to craft a world within our protected university enclaves that are a disservice to the young adults (And their parents) that attend them and its all really about the money. When its all boiled down its always ultimately about the money. All ideals and intellectual honesty goes out the window when a workable “cause” / method of cash flow is established. In this case it is characterized as being more “Moral” and “compassionate”. Over all, any actual good intentions aside because good intentions really mean nothing when talking about the realities of the world, these activities going on on the campuses of American universities are fraudulent and childish.

    I will provide an excellent example:

    Who (and why) do you think someone is worth a $400 K dollar speaking fee after they have served as the president? And I am certain that there will be many, many more to come. Imagine what the Iranians will pay for a speech.

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-09-18/obama-goes-from-white-house-to-wall-street-in-less-than-one-year

    Obama the philosophical Marxist succumbs to the “evil’s” of capitalism. Oh, power and money are the ultimate opiate. I am certain Obama will struggle through his philosophical conflicts. Don’t you? Its a sweet gig if you can get it.

    “break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative about race in the community,”

    Segregation is unlikely to accomplish this even if meal time is filled with re-education seminars in how to be used by Democrats in service of identity politics. Not sure why Tallen thinks mealtime should be abused this way. Can’t people just eat without being required to undergo Democrat indoctrination?

    Far from being un-restrictive, using mealtime this way is uber totalitarian.

  • wodun

    Some of us actually favor such developments since they define and represent the fallacy of a multi-cultural/racial society.

    Democrats engaging in segregation doesn’t show that people of different ethnicity can’t live together. In a perverted way, it shows that people with different ethnicities can adopt new ideologies. In this case, the ideology is horrific and the cause of endless human suffering over the last century.

    The reality is that anyone can adopt a traditional American way of viewing the world and enjoy the same success that Americans have. This is why Democrats and white nationalists fight so hard against America.

    Tallen Robertson,
    You wrote (although it is unclear whether you were addressing the College Fix article, Robert, or me): “Far from being restrictive ‘segregated’ meals, these are gatherings in which these minorities will be able to receive ideas and strategies to help them deal with asshats like you.

    So, Tallen, does this mean that sitting at the back of the bus allows those minorities to receive ideas and strategies, too? Do you think that separate drinking fountains prevent the spread of cooties? How about separate restroom facilities? Are all these segregations also as good as segregated dinning rooms? Are you name-calling in an attempt to cause someone to shut-up?

    And isn’t the root source the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, from which The Brown Daily Herald quoted? Yet you linked instead to the Herald. Perhaps the points made were not source-able from either the foundation or the school paper.

    It seems that, despite claims that the 1950s were terribly racist and that bad-word hats want a return to racist ways, we have already gone back to the 1950s — or rather worse than the 1950s, because at least in that decade blacks and Republicans were advocating for civil rights. Today blacks and Democrats are advocating for segregation and victimization.

    Is their next step the voluntary and eager adherence to Jim Crow laws?

    In the 1960s, the dream was that “my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” We had that nation, just a decade ago, but the Democrats and the blacks themselves are rapidly fundamentally transforming it to the KKK’s version of paradise.

    No longer is the content of one’s character important but it is only the color of one’s skin that matters. For instance, it is only black lives that matter, not all lives, and anyone who suggests otherwise is intimidated into silence or bullied into apologizing. It is only whites who are discouraged from being on campus, discouraged through bullying and intimidation if they do come on campus. These are two cases where only skin color matters, not character.

    Who are the racists, anyway?

    It is clear that what the students really need are ideas and strategies to help them deal with those like you, Tallen, who encourage them to be victims, not free men and women who are equal in stature and status. The wrong person or article was accused of being the bad-word hat.

  • Steve Earle

    Well said Edward, sadly for our country I couldn’t agree more and I feel the need to copy and paste your most powerful point:

    “…..In the 1960s, the dream was that “my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” We had that nation, just a decade ago, but the Democrats and the blacks themselves are rapidly fundamentally transforming it to the KKK’s version of paradise.

    Who are the racists, anyway?….”

  • Edward

    Steve Earle,
    Yes. It is sad that this is the new direction that our nation has taken.

  • pzatchok

    Just reverse the situation and change the characters to see if it sounds racist.

    How about instead of blacks and Muslims we make it whites and Christians?

    Sound racist now?

    You can not improve Muslim Christian relationships without including both groups in the discussion. The same with Black White relationships.
    Otherwise your just secretly discussing ways to influence or target the other group.

    And thanks for calling everyone here butt hats.
