Celebrate Diversity! University Of Texas Removes Jefferson Davis Statue…

Texas Removal

Soon to be replaced with an all-inclusive transgender minority statue to empower the special little snowflakes. Update to this story.

Via Stars and Stripes:

A statue of Jefferson Davis has been removed from its place on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin after a failed appeal by a Confederate heritage group.

Crews could be seen Sunday morning removing the statue of the Confederate president from its place near the university’s iconic clock tower.

University President Greg Fenves recently said the statue would be moved to a museum.

The statue has been a target of vandalism as well as criticism that it is a symbol of racism and discrimination. Confederate symbols nationwide are being re-considered following the recent mass shooting of members of a black church in Charleston, South Carolina.

A judge last week ruled against the Sons of Confederate Veterans, which sued to stop the university from moving it.

Apple Ramps Up Diversity Efforts, Most Employees Still White Guys


Instead of diversity, maybe they could work on not hiring Chinese slaves?

Via PC Mag:

Apple this week said its hiring efforts over the past year included its largest number of minority hires in a 12-month period.

“In the past year we hired over 11,000 women globally, which is 65 percent more than in the previous year,” CEO Tim Cook wrote on Apple’s website. “In the United States, we hired more than 2,200 Black employees—a 50 percent increase over last year—and 2,700 Hispanic employees, a 66 percent increase.”

Overall, that’s “the largest group of employees we’ve ever hired from underrepresented groups in a single year,” Cook said, while nearly 50 percent of Apple’s new hires in the first six months of 2015 were women, Black, Hispanic, or Native American.

All Hail Diversity! Target Removes Gender Labels From Kids Sections…


Next up the restrooms.

Via Bloomberg

Target Corp. is removing gender labels from most of its children’s departments after customers complained about signs designating certain toys for girls.

The kids’ bedding section will no longer feature boy and girl signage, and the toy department will be without labels and pink or blue paper on the shelves, Minneapolis-based Target said on its website Friday. Gender labels will remain in the kids’ clothing section because of sizing and fit differences.

Retailers have been moving away from gender stereotypes, and some startups have emerged to break down the divide in kids’ clothing and toys. The signage that sparked the dispute at Target was for building sets, like GoldieBlox, that are targeted at girls.

“As guests have pointed out, in some departments like toys, home or entertainment, suggesting products by gender is unnecessary,” Target said. “We heard you, and we agree. Right now, our teams are working across the store to identify areas where we can phase out gender-based signage to help strike a better balance.”

Illinois Taxpayers Funding $205K/Year Salary For University’s “Chief Diversity Officer”…


Every lefty’s dream job.

Via College Fix:

The recently tapped chief diversity officer at Northern Illinois University will make $205,000 a year – a $185,000 salary and $20,000 in allowances and expenses – collecting more than 99 percent of U.S. Congress members and all U.S. governors.

In an email to The College Fix, a spokesman for the public university confirmed Vernese Edghill-Walden’s compensation package of $205,000 annually, and defended the remuneration as a good use of taxpayer dollars.

“Northern Illinois University serves one of the most culturally and ethnically diverse regions in the country,” spokesman Joseph King said in an email to The College Fix. “…We believe that there is great value in that diversity. By creating this position we are trying to ensure that all of our students will reap the benefits of living and learning on a campus filled with many cultures and points of view.”

Edghill-Walden, whose full title is senior associate vice president for academic diversity and chief diversity officer, started her new job at NIU on Aug. 1, according to campus officials.

Edghill-Walden’s hefty salary comes at a time when Illinois is facing large budget problems, and state lawmakers are at an impasse. Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner, a Republican, has called for a 30 percent cut to higher education spending to help balance the budget. Rauner, who took office in January, has given up a $179,400 salary and only pays himself $1 a year.

All Hail Diversity! San Diego Pride Parade Celebrates Military’s Plan For Transgender Troops…

San Diego

The social experiments continue while the draw down continues.

Via Stars and Stripes

In a drenching rain, Evander Deocariza, an active-duty Marine, was the flag bearer Saturday for the transgender community flag in the color guard for the city’s 41st LGBT Pride Parade.

By sheer coincidence, the San Diego parade was the same week that Secretary of Defense Ash Carter announced formation of a six-month working group to study “policy and readiness implications” of “welcoming” transgender people to serve openly.

Carter’s implication was clear: Make it happen.

Once Carter made his announcement, Deocariza knew what he had to do. He announced to his command, where he is known by a different name, that he is transgender. And he decided to go public at one of the nation’s largest pride parades.

Deocariza, 25, a corporal, wore a T-shirt with the slogan “Serving With Pride” and a button reading “Trans and Proud.” His girlfriend, a civilian, marched along with several hundred military personnel as the crowd lining the streets of Hillcrest cheered.

“I want to set an example of what a transgender person can be like — a good Marine,” said Deocariza, a linguist.

Weeks ago parade organizers had decided to feature the transgender community as the collective grand marshal, under the slogan “Liberty and Justice For All.”[…]

As the U.S. military’s policy toward gays and lesbians has evolved, the annual LGBT Pride Parade in San Diego, as befits a military community, has been in the forefront.

In 2011, with the “don’t ask, don’t tell” rule still in effect, upward of 200 military personnel marched defiantly in the San Diego parade, many wearing T-shirts identifying their branch of the service.

In 2012, after the policy was repealed, the Pentagon issued a one-year exemption to the rule banning the wearing of uniforms in the parade just days before the San Diego event. Several hundred military personnel marched, some in uniform, others in T-shirts.

Now that the no-uniforms rule has been lifted permanently, the number of military personnel, active-duty and retired, in the San Diego parade has grown each year, many from local bases, others from bases around the country. Saturday’s contingent was estimated at more than 300.

San Diego Councilman Todd Gloria, who is gay, said that while he is pleased with changes made by the Department of Defense, there are still challenges facing the transgender community. “It isn’t time for a ‘Mission Accomplished’ banner,” he said.

Several activists staged “die-ins” along the parade route to emphasize the need for continued political action involving transgender issues, including spousal rights, health care, protection from violence, nondiscrimination in employment and housing, and overall public acceptance.

Palestinian Man Celebrates Diversity By Painting LGBT Rainbow Flag On West Bank Security Wall, Flag Whitewashed By Angry Mob “Just A Few Hours Later” …

Screen Shot 2015-07-06 at 9.16.18 AM

The guy’s lucky he wasn’t killed, but hey, let’s all focus on those evil Jews!


Via Breitbart:

A Palestinian artist who painted an LGBT rainbow on a security wall in the West Bank has angered many within the area, where homosexuality is illegal.

Khaled Jarrar– who, after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage is now legal in all 50 states, drew the LGBT rainbow on the wall to draw attention to the Israeli “occupation”– was disappointed that his own people decided to abruptly paint over his art on a security barrier.

The security walls, which divide the West Bank and Israeli territory, were erected following the first and second intifada – when Palestinian terrorists launched wide-scale attacks against Israel’s Jewish population.

The painting “ignited angry responses and [Palestinian] activists whitewashed the flag on Monday night, just a few hours after it was painted,” the Associated Press reports.

Jarrar told the AP that the whitewashing “reflects the absence of tolerance and freedoms in the Palestinian society.”

“People don’t accept different thinking in our society,” he added.

Muhammad al-Amleh, a lawyer, disagreed that Jarrar should have the right to free speech, telling the AP, “It would be shameful to have the flag of gays in our refugee camp.”

Another man named Muhammad, who participated in erasing the painting, said, “We cannot promote gay rights” in the Palestinian-controlled West Bank.

Macy’s Celebrates Diversity! . . . By Dumping Donald Trump…


Via CNN:

Macy’s is pulling Donald Trump brand merchandise from its stores after the Republican presidential candidate’s recent controversial remarks created a public uproar.

The department store has come under intense pressure to cut ties with the real estate magnate and businessman after he referred to immigrants from Mexico and other countries “killers and rapists.”

In a statement Wednesday morning, Macy’s said the company “stands for diversity” and that it had no tolerance for discrimination.

“We are disappointed and distressed by recent remarks about immigrants from Mexico. We do not believe the disparaging characterizations portray an accurate picture of the many Mexicans, Mexican Americans and Latinos who have made so many valuable contributions to the success of our nation,” Macy’s said. “In light of statements made by Donald Trump, which are inconsistent with Macy’s values, we have decided to discontinue our business relationship with Mr. Trump and will phase-out the Trump menswear collection, which has been sold at Macy’s since 2004.”

Horror! Report Says America’s Top Spies At The CIA “Do Not Prioritize Diversity”…

Via Reuters

The CIA has consistently failed to promote minorities into its leadership ranks and progress in building diversity at the top of the spy agency has largely stalled in the last decade, according to a CIA-commissioned report released on Tuesday.

“Agency leaders, managers and supervisors do not prioritize diversity in leadership,” the report said.

“This fact is evident at the highest levels of the CIA, wherein the most senior positions – with few notable exceptions – are consistently occupied by white male career officers,” it said.

Among the report’s most striking findings is that since 2008, the percentage of minorities hired by the CIA has declined to below what is needed to sustain current minority representation in the agency’s workforce.

It also found that a 1984-2004 increase in African-American officers at the agency’s top rung, known as the Senior Intelligence Service, has been reversed in the last 10 years.

CIA Director John Brennan, who ordered the study in December 2013, said he was committed to improving hiring, promotion and training of a diverse workforce. Brennan described that as vital to the spy agency’s mission of understanding and predicting events in an increasingly complex world.

An insufficiently diverse workforce “has lead to less than comprehensive appreciation of the world as we know it,” the CIA chief said. Other perspectives are needed, he said, “so we do not fall prey to group-think.”

Since its 1947 founding, the CIA has often been seen as a bastion of white males – often educated at Ivy League universities.

All Hail Diversity! Oakland A’s Make History With First Transgender Woman To Sing National Anthem On LGBT Pride Night…

Oakland A's

Is nothing sacred?

Via Daily Mail

History was made at the Oakland Athletics stadium this week when a transgender woman sang the national anthem at a professional sporting event for the first time ever in the country.

Classically-trained opera singer Breanna Sinclaire took the mic at the O.co Coliseum for a sold out game between the A’s and the San Diego Padres on Wednesday.

Sinclaire had a 30,000 audience at the A’s LGBT Pride Night as she belted out the Star-Spangled Banner, and that wasn’t counting the people who were watching the game on television.

‘The biggest audience I’ve had before is 1,000,’ she told the San Francisco Chronicle before the game. ‘So you see where the nerves come from.’

Just years earlier, Sinclaire had been homeless.

The singer was studying at a small conservative Christian college in Canada when she was truly able to embrace her gender identity, Sinclaire told Out Magazine.

But it was a decision not supported by her peers, and soon her family disowned her as well.

Sinclaire lived on the streets of New York for several months before she was saved by her talent, landing a spot at the famous California Institute of the Arts before she became the first transgender graduate of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music’s classical voice program.

The singer, who began transitioning her senior year, battled both the changes hormone therapy brought on her voice and struggles to afford the surgery she needed.

In 2013 Sinclaire hosted a benefit concert dubbed ‘Opera’s Greatest Tits’ and raised $8,500. She completed sexual reassignment surgery two months ago, which she said has made her more confident performing female roles in operas.

Oklahoma Elementary School Invites CAIR To Conduct “Diversity Training” For School Staff…


Repeat after me, “Islam is a religion of peace.”


The name Sequoyah is synonymous with education and progress. Sequoyah, the great legendary Cherokee figure, worked towards these goals and preserved his native language by creating the first Cherokee alphabet, eventually propelling it to be the strongest surviving indigenous American language. In the spirit of his name, the Sequoyah Elementary School also takes great strides towards education and progress. In working to make a more open and accepting environment for its students, the school is creating a more productive learning environment.

On Tuesday morning, upon invitation by school officials, Adam Soltani and Veronica Laizure of the Council on American Islamic Relations Oklahoma Chapter held a diversity-training program for the school’s educational staff. In this diversity-training program, the two CAIR officials made presentations outlining some of the basics of the Islamic faith and the challenges faced by Muslim Students, and they answered questions in an environment which was truly open and inviting.

Veronica, CAIR Oklahoma’s Civil Rights Director, gave an outline of some of the basic tenets of Islam and showed the teachers how these would affect their students in their school. Her topics ranged from the significance and procedure of prayer and proper religious attire, to the meaning and scheduling of Islamic holy days. She and Adam also answered questions on how these religious matters would affect the students in during the school day and how to have an open, comfortable dialogue with Muslim families to facilitate a productive environment.

Executive Director Adam Soltani gave the next presentation on how “Islamic Extremism” is perceived in the public and in the media. He also inspired an insightful discussion on how miscommunication and misunderstanding can cause problems for the overwhelming majority of Muslims who do not prescribe to this extremist ideology. These problems can be especially harmful to young students, which can affect the way that society continues to develop in the future as a whole.

The diversity-training program at Sequoyah Elementary School was a positive step forward in the cause of making our community more inclusive and open for all. From my own perspective, as a white-American-born-Muslim convert, I often find myself living in the midst of a common identity crisis among Muslim converts: that of living in two different worlds at the same time. This identity crisis is often exacerbated by feelings of abandonment and isolation because of personal choices, and it often results in an individual feeling as if they must abandon everything about one of these identities in order to be accepted in one of these worlds. Educational events like this go a long way as to help encourage inclusiveness in our society and ensure that these worlds do not become mutually exclusive.

Cincinnati Mayor ‘Disturbed’ By Lack Of Diversity In Police Department Command Staff, Blames Written Exams…


Lower the standards if it’s in the name of diversity.


Mayor John Cranley and the Sentinel Police Association want to change testing procedures used to determine promotions in the city’s police department.

“Mayor Cranley is disturbed by the lack of diversity in the police department’s command staff,” reads a prepared statement from the mayor’s office. “Of the three assistant chiefs, none are African-American; and of the 12 police captains, only one is African-American.”

U.S. Census statistics indicate the city of Cincinnati’s population is 49.3 percent Caucasian and 44.8 percent African-American, the statement reads.

A police department should reflect the city it serves to effectively police the community and to develop a good relationship with residents.

“We clearly need some diversity in our command staff to foster trust and cooperation with the community,” Cranley said. “For years, the Sentinels have said the way we test and grade the examination process for promotions is unfair.”

An upcoming vacancy in the captains’ ranks will create an opportunity to add diversity in the command staff of the police department. Last week, Assistant Chief Paul Humphries announced he is leaving later this month for an out-of-state job.

“…. not only will an assistant chief’s position be filled due to a retirement, but presumably a captain’s position will be vacated if a captain is promoted to assistant chief,” the mayor’s statement reads.

The Sentinels say they believe the lack of diversity stems from promotional tests that were written and graded by the command staff. They are calling for a fair test that is “double blind” – written and graded by outsiders, and graded anonymously.

Report: Growing Number Of High Schools Are Celebrating Diversity By Ditching Different Color Graduation Robes For Boys And Girls….


One of America’s most pressing issues.

Via WaPo:

Chloe Martin-Poteet will be wearing a white cap and gown when she graduates this month. Her brother, Julian, will be dressed in royal blue. It’s part of a two-color tradition at James Hubert Blake High School: girls in one hue, boys in another.

That tradition is ending.

As a growing number of the nation’s schools work to embrace transgender students and enact policies to protect their rights, there’s a movement afoot in Maryland’s Montgomery County to make graduation robes gender-neutral, with one color for all. Some students argue that no one should have to wear a garment that doesn’t reflect who they are, nor should there be any separation between the genders as they all cross into adulthood.

“Some people say it’s just a color, but if it is just a color, why can’t they all be the same color so we can be inclusive?” asks Chloe, a leader in her school’s gay-straight alliance, which has pressed for change in letters to principals at the county’s 25 high schools.

With graduation season here, three Montgomery high schools — Damascus, Sherwood and Walter Johnson — have shifted to single-color robes, and at least five others have decided to make the change for next year’s graduates.

Principals at several of those schools said the student letters played a role in the decision.

“They are all Class of 2015,” said Jennifer Webster, principal at Damascus High, where students graduated late last month in green caps and gowns. “Why differentiate?”

Webster said she has worked with students who are conflicted about which gown color to choose because they associate with one gender yet are listed as another. When she received the letter from students at Blake, it immediately resonated. “You’re right,” she recalled thinking as she read it.

The move comes amid growing awareness of the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students nationwide.

“Schools around the country are beginning to reconsider their policies to ensure that unspoken assumptions and long-held ideas about gender don’t have a discriminatory effect on their students,” said Eliza Byard, executive director of the national Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network.

All Hail Diversity! Transgender Children’s Books Hitting The Bookshelves…

TG Book

WTF, over.

Via Inquisitr

Transgender children’s books, which address a topic once considered so taboo that no mainstream publisher would touch it, are gaining a wider audience thanks to a handful of authors and a few mainstream publishers willing to reach out to children struggling with gender identity, the New York Times is reporting.

Children’s literature has often been reluctant to take on taboo subjects — Judy Blume’s candid descriptions of menstruation and teen sexuality were considered scandalous in their day, according to NPR. But the children’s publishing industry has taken on a handful of difficult subjects in recent years, including rape, suicide, and sex trafficking. But the subject of gender identity in teens, adolescents, and children has gotten scant little attention.

David Levithan, vice president and publisher of Scholastic Press, says that publishers are now becoming willing to take on the subject of transgender children — however slowly.

“In our culture, it was really something that was in the shadows, but suddenly people are talking about it. As our culture is starting to acknowledge transgender people and acknowledge that they are a part of the fabric of who we are, literature is reflecting that.”

Much of the body of work in transgender children’s literature is aimed at teens and adolescents, according to SFGate. Sam Martin, a 43-year-old who has transitioned from female to male, will be releasing later this month a semi-autobiographical teen novel about a transgender teen boy who falls in love with another boy. Similarly, the memoir Rethinking Normal by Katie Rain Hill, about a transgender teen girl in Oklahoma who falls in love with another transgender teen girl, hit the shelves last year.

Director Cameron Crowe Apologizes To “Diversity Campaigners” For Casting White Actress Emma Stone As A “Part-Asian” Character…


I love when libs get a taste of their own PC medicine.

Via Guardian:

Cameron Crowe has apologised for casting the white actor Emma Stone as a “part-Asian” Hawaiian in controversial “whitewashed” romance Aloha.

Crowe addressed the issue on his blog after diversity campaigners took him to task for allegedly failing to recognise that Asian-Pacific Islanders make up the majority of the state’s population. The casting of Stone as the quarter Asian and quarter Hawaiian character Allison Ng drew particular criticism.

“Thank you so much for all the impassioned comments regarding the casting of the wonderful Emma Stone in the part of Allison Ng,” Crowe wrote. “I have heard your words and your disappointment, and I offer you a heartfelt apology to all who felt this was an odd or misguided casting choice.”

The film-maker said he had based Ng on a real-life redheaded Hawaiian who always struggled to explain her unlikely ethnicity. He took the blame for the casting decision entirely upon himself and praised Stone for her “tireless research”.

“Whether that story point felt hurtful or humorous has been, of course, the topic of much discussion,” he said. “However I am so proud that in the same movie, we employed many Asian-American, Native-Hawaiian and Pacific-Islanders, both before and behind the camera … including Dennis “Bumpy” Kanahele, and his village, and many other locals who worked closely in our crew and with our script to help ensure authenticity.

“I am grateful for the dialogue,” the director continued. “And from the many voices, loud and small, I have learned something very inspiring. So many of us are hungry for stories with more racial diversity, more truth in representation, and I am anxious to help tell those stories in the future.”

Bruce Jenner Celebrates Diversity… Announces He Will Now Go By Name “Caitlyn” In Vanity Fair…


Must. Celebrate. Diversity.

NEW YORK (AP) — Bruce Jenner made his debut as a transgender woman in a va-va-voom cover for the July issue of Vanity Fair.

“Call me Caitlyn,” declares a headline with her photo in a strapless corset, legs crossed, sitting on a stool. The image was shot by famed celeb photographer Annie Leibovitz. Prior to the unveiling of Caitlyn, Jenner had said he prefers the pronoun “he,” but contributing editor Buzz Bissinger, who wrote the accompanying story, refers to “she.”

According to Vanity Fair, which took to Twitter with the cover Monday, Jenner spoke emotionally to the magazine about the gender journey: “If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life.'”

White House: Iraqi Army Trounced By ISIS In Ramadi Because Of Their Lack Of Diversity…

Josh Earnest

Via Keith Koffler:

No, really. You’re not misreading the headline.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest Tuesday exculpated Obama’s Iraq strategy and instead blamed Iraqi leaders’ failure to integrate their armed forces for the dramatic loss of Ramadi to ISIS.

Earnest said:

What we have indicated all along is that it will require a multi-sectarian force to succeed against ISIL.  And the reason for that is Iraq is a very diverse country and they’re going to need every element of their diversity to counter this specific threat.

You’ll recall from even the earliest days of the military campaign that the support of the United States was predicated on the commitment of the Iraqi political leadership and the Iraqi military leadership governing and fighting in a multi-sectarian fashion.  And that was true at the beginning in terms of the air support that the United States was prepared to offer; that’s also been true in some of the successful military operations that Iraqi security forces have carried out.

Now, there’s some truth to his, like any bit of spin. It’s not unreasonable to question the commitment of Iraq’s largely Shiite force to defending Sunni areas like Ramadi its ability to relate to the local population. But this isn’t enough to explain the catastrophic failure of Obama’s policy.

Via Conservative Byte:

My neighbor was telling me about how his daughter took her kids to see the Liberty Bell and how they had redone the history signs there. It is now all about civil rights with the founding of our country barely touched upon. I’ve been trying to find a news story about this and am not seeing anything.

I did find the Nation Park Service website basically endorsing the LBGT movement. While their curriculum is nothing but a list of modern civil rights lessons.

You mean to tell me that the founding of our nation isn’t an exciting enough story that you have to ignore it and try to somehow connect civil rights? This sad rewriting of our national history is wrong and should not be ignored. We have let liberals take over teaching our children and our society.

Not to mention why is it ok for an official government service to endorse LGBT? We constantly hear about the separation of church and state, yet a hotly contested issue like this is ok for liberals to act like the know best. Another example of how liberals are prochoice until you disagree with their choice.

Check it out:


Students will learn the connection between the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and the GLBT Civil Rights Movement.


  • Students will be able to identify and explain the connection between the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and the GLBT Civil Rights Movement.
  • Students will examine and analyze photographs and a historical marker to identify and research the key people involved in the movement and exemplify their understanding of how the Liberty Bell has been used as a symbol by various groups, particularly by young activists during the Civil Rights era.

Middle School “Diversity Day” Speaker Tells Young Teens: “Gender Is A Lot More Than What Your Genitalia Are”…


Science begs to differ.

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Piedmont Middle School’s annual “Diversity Day,” included Cuban music, dance, jazz, hip-hop, and a transgender man who grew up a girl in Southern California.

Volunteers helped to organize the event and some parents brought foods representing their cultures while students were rotated through the classrooms to hear 16 speakers “representing different races, disabilities and sexual orientations.”

The driving force behind the annual celebration is the combined effort of Piedmont art teacher Kim Lipkin and film class teacher, Anne Smith, according to San Jose Mercury News.

It was in Lipkin’s classroom that students heard the story of Ali Cannon, a transgender man who grew up a girl in Southern California.

“Cannon talked about his journey, including feelings that he was different, rejection and ostracism by other girls in middle school and his final decision to change his gender.”

“We think of boys and girls in terms of biology, what’s between your legs,” Cannon said, “when gender is really a lot more than what your genitalia are. People identify all along the spectrum of what they feel inside.”

College “Diversity Officer” May Lose Her Job After Tweeting “Kill All White Men”…


Same woman who claimed it’s “impossible” for a minority to be racist.

Via Daily Caller:

A diversity officer at a British university is back in hot water and may lose her job over tweets she made that appear to call for white men to be exterminated.

It’s the latest chapter in the saga of Bahar Mustafa, a student at Goldsmiths, University of London who works there as a welfare and diversity officer. In April, she drew attention for hosting an event about “diversifying” the school’s curriculum that banned whites and men from attending. A few weeks later, she attempted to defend herself by claiming that “I, an ethnic minority woman, cannot be racist or sexist towards white men.”

Now, students at Goldsmiths have taken action, launching a petition effort seeking to have her deprive of her post via a confidence vote. In the argument favoring a vote of no confidence, Mustafa is accused of repeatedly demeaning people from certain groups and engaging in hate speech, an approach that seems to sharply contradict her responsibility of promoting diversity.

“For example the consistent use of hash-tags such as #killallwhitemen and #misandry, and publically [sic] calling someone ‘white trash’ under the official GSU Welfare and Diversity Officer twitter account,” the argument says. “Any apologies given have been presented in a way that attempts to shift the blame and refuses to see genuine fault in her conduct, which has not changed. The response is still to attack or invalidate students who speak out.”
