It has come to this. Hair care product ad is RAAAAACIST!

How dare Shea Moisture put White women in their ad! Yes, really!

Black women’s hair. You don’t know the shtruggle.

Shea Moisture is a hair product that helps with that shtruggle. Put a white woman in the commercial and the shtrugglers will destroy you. BLACK ONLY!

WHITES NEED NOT APPLY Shea moisture cream

Here is the super offensive ad

So, apparently this company is trying to sale more of their product, and this ad targets people who maybe are not their traditional patrons. How, in any rational sense, is this offensive? Are we really this petty, childish, and emotionally overwrought in America? Are we this obsessed with freaking hair? Are the Black women bitching about this so insecure and pathetic that they are truly offended? I would guess that about 99% of Black women are too busy having lives to be “offended” over the fact that this product might be used by White women. But, of course, the company has apologized for, I guess daring to advertise to Whitey or something

After the backlash, SheaMoisture issued an apology, saying they “f-ed this one up”:

Wow, okay – so guys, listen, we really f-ed this one up. Please know that our intention was not – and would never be – to disrespect our community, and as such, we are pulling this piece immediately because it does not represent what we intended to communicate. You guys know that we have always stood for inclusion in beauty and have always fought for our community and given them credit for not just building our business but for shifting the beauty landscape.

The company admitted that while the purpose of the ad was to demonstrate different “hair journeys,” they will try harder to make sure the black community is “well-represented”:

While this campaign included several different videos showing different ethnicities and hair types to demonstrate the breadth and depth of each individual’s hair journey, we must absolutely ensure moving forward that our community is well-represented in each one so that the women who have led this movement never feel that their hair journey is minimized in any way. We are keenly aware of the journey that WOC face – and our work will continue to serve as the inspiration for work like the Perception Institute’s Good Hair Study/Implicit Association Test that suggests that a majority of people, regardless of race and gender, hold some bias towards women of color based on their textured or natural hair. So, you’re right. We are different – and we should know better.

Oh good grief! What a groveling “apology” Someone grab me a vomit bag. The ad that so offended some malcontents was the first in a series of ads that features a variety of women with a variety of hair needs that Shea felt its product can help. There is something striking here. The CEO of Shea was being interviewed about this and noted that other makers of hair care products are trying to broaden their demographic appeal by targeting a more diverse pool of women. These ads brought down no anger did they? No one went to YouTube to make outrageously outraged videos. No White women whined and pretended to be offended and aggrieved. Apparently diversity is a one way street where the race mongers are concerned. Honestly it is a freaking hair care product ad!

Oh, one more thing that must be made clear. If you are offended by this ad, then you are the problem, because you are being racist. It is you that needs to take a long look in your mirror! Frankly, anyone offended by this deserves but one response. A two-word response. Wanna take a guess what those words are? Yes, the first one does rhyme with luck

 

So sorry, but your culture is not welcome in our multi-cultural world

It has come to this, segregated playgrounds

Like most mothers with young children, Coverdale enjoys opportunities to socialise with other mothers of children the same age while on maternity leave, especially in her neighbourhood in inner-city Sydney.

So when a Russian-born friend mentioned a playgroup on Thursdays, at the Alexandria Park Community Centre, she was enthusiastic.

Two weeks ago, on a humid Thursday morning, she bundled her eight-month-old baby in the pram and walked with her four-year-old son the short distance to the community centre.

When she arrived, her red-haired son raced off to play while she looked around for her friend.

That was when a staff member approached and asked if it was her first day. Coverdale thought how nice that she was so attentive.

But then the woman said: “Can I ask what your cultural background is?”

Taken aback, Coverdale, who has blonde hair and freckles, said: “I’m Australian”.

Immediately, the woman said: “I’m sorry, you can’t come here. It’s for multicultural families and people who speak languages other than English at home.”

This is what is happening to Western culture. The obsessive emphasis on identity and multiculturalism has led us here. It has led us to a place where the way people “look” is all that matters. A place where people are using “anti-discrimination” to discriminate.

This story also has a positive ending though

After being alerted to the problem on Friday, Education Minister Rob Stokes and his department, to their credit, instructed Fletcher to allow all families to attend the playgroup.

“I was disappointed to hear that a mum and her young child felt they were not welcome… This is not acceptable. Everyone, regardless of their background, should feel included in these wonderful community activities.”

The Education Department also has “counselled the program facilitator [Fletcher] regarding the requirement of the program to be inclusive”, said a spokesman late Friday.

In this case the media reported on the bigotry, and a wrong was righted. But not the cause of the problem. The Left has taken a noble and good cause, ending racism, and slowly, but surely twisted it into a charge for encoding racism, as long as it is perpetrated against the right groups. They are creating a culture where discrimination is the worst sin on earth if perpetrated against certain groups, but completely justified and righteous if it targets other groups. Once more we see that Leftism destroys everything it touches.

Embracing Leftism is like drinking poison

I have opined before that Leftism destroys everything it touches. But, after reading this story at Moonbattery I would say that those who embrace Leftism might as well ingest rattlesnake venom

A whites-only group has been started at MIT. Is this pushback against the militant anti-Caucasian racism that dominates college campuses? Of course not, or the group would have been banned. The group is devoted to racial self-hatred:

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) now has a “White Person’s Accountability Group” to help white people understand their “roles both in perpetuating systemic racism and in dismantling it.”

An objective of the group is to develop a “sense of anger about racism.”

…begin holding monthly meetings to “hold one another accountable to advancing racial justice in [their] own personal, institutional, and societal spheres.”

To achieve absolute equality (i.e., “racial justice”), anyone who rises above the lowest common denominator must hold himself down with self-hatred.

MIT students and faculty who wish to start a “white caucus” are advised to “provide a summary report of each meeting [to] people of color,” remembering that “people of color should be the ones to determine what is appropriate,” but are also warned that “there is a fine line between seeking accountability and adding another burden on people of color.”

In short anyone who is not a member of a preferred race must not only hate themselves, and bear guilt for imagined crimes, but they must also force themselves to grovel like slaves before their “victims”. On the despicability scale, this ranks high. This is naked racism and anyone who embraces such moral backasswardness is doomed to a life of misery and self-loathing. And those that teach this garbage are no better than a KKK member, or any other bottom feeding bigot.

Again, one of life’s inescapable truths is that leftism destroys everything it touches, and anyone who embraces and accepts its morally depraved ideals.

So pretty much everything is racist now

Yes gun targets are now, well, you know

GUNS.com-

The No More Black Targets campaign argues that shooting ranges and instructors should not use “menacing” black targets, and is petitioning to end the practice, citing trigger bias.

“Young black men are 3X more likely to be shot by trained shooters than their white peers,” notes the site for the campaign. “A disturbing potential correlation: The most popular target for shooters to learn to use their firearm is a black silhouette. Unconscious bias can be deadly.”

Good Freaking Grief! But perhaps the most asinine claim is this

The group references a study by University of Illinois researchers that concluded shooters were more likely to fire at a black target.

One of the researhers in that study, Yara Mekawi, told National Public Radio in 2015 that people were “quicker to shoot black targets with a gun relative to white targets with a gun. And…people were more trigger-happy when shooting black targets compared to shooting white targets.”

 

The further indoctrination of our kids

Via The Daily Caller

The Caucus of Working Educators, a branch of a teachers union, wants educators to wear Black Lives Matter gear in the classroom and teach lessons based on the movement, reports ABC News.

The themes for the lessons vary day to day. Jan. 23’s lessons are supposed to cover ideas of “restorative justice, empathy and loving engagement,” while Jan. 24 will deal with diversity and globalism.

In other words Marxism, social justice, and propaganda about how racist America and its police forces are. Go read it all, and you will likely come to the conclusion that this is nothing more than indoctrination into radical left values. Please recall that BLM was forged based on a lies, the lies about Trayvon Martin being hunted down, the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie. The movement is infested with radicals, racists, and is backed by George Soros, a rabidly anti-American radical himself.

I have no problem teaching students about BLM, but I want the truth taught, not propaganda.

If you are skeptical, consider the 13 principles that BLM claims to be founded upon.

Do not expect to see anything remotely resembling a call to address the out of wedlock birthrate in the Black community. Or for a call for Blacks to leave gangs, and stop killing other Blacks Over 90% of Blacks killed are killed by Black people, usually young Black men with illegal firearms. Do not look for a call to reign in the disproportionate rate of violent crime committed by young Black men. Do not look for any call for anything that might actually save Black lives, or improve living conditions in the inner city. Those things just are not important to BLM.

Here is one you might find interesting Emphasis mine

BLACK VILLAGES

We are committed to disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, and especially “our” children to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable.

So, with a lack of Black fathers being a large issue in the inner cities, BLM wants to further “disrupt” the traditional family?

All the other principles are based in Marxism. Heather Mac Donald offers some important insight

For almost two years, a protest movement known as “Black Lives Matter” has convulsed the nation. Triggered by the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in August 2014, the Black Lives Matter movement holds that racist police officers are the greatest threat facing young black men today. This belief has triggered riots, “die-ins,” the murder and attempted murder of police officers, a campaign to eliminate traditional grand jury proceedings when police use lethal force, and a presidential task force on policing.

Even though the U.S. Justice Department has resoundingly disproven the lie that a pacific Michael Brown was shot in cold blood while trying to surrender, Brown is still venerated as a martyr. And now police officers are backing off of proactive policing in the face of the relentless venom directed at them on the street and in the media. As a result, violent crime is on the rise.

The need is urgent, therefore, to examine the Black Lives Matter movement’s central thesis—that police pose the greatest threat to young black men. I propose two counter hypotheses: first, that there is no government agency more dedicated to the idea that black lives matter than the police; and second, that we have been talking obsessively about alleged police racism over the last 20 years in order to avoid talking about a far larger problem—black-on-black crime.

This is an excellent source that exposes the Black Lives Matter scam. Go read it all, and pass it around. In closing let me add this from Mac Donald, it is powerful

Who are some of the victims of elevated urban crime? On March 11, 2015, as protesters were once again converging on the Ferguson police headquarters demanding the resignation of the entire department, a six-year-old boy named Marcus Johnson was killed a few miles away in a St. Louis park, the victim of a drive-by shooting. No one protested his killing. Al Sharpton did not demand a federal investigation. Few people outside of his immediate community know his name.

Ten children under the age of ten were killed in Baltimore last year. In Cleveland, three children five and younger were killed in September. A seven-year-old boy was killed in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend by a bullet intended for his father. In November, a nine-year-old in Chicago was lured into an alley and killed by his father’s gang enemies; the father refused to cooperate with the police. In August, a nine-year-old girl was doing her homework on her mother’s bed in Ferguson when a bullet fired into the house killed her. In Cincinnati in July, a four-year-old girl was shot in the head and a six-year-old girl was left paralyzed and partially blind from two separate drive-by shootings. This mindless violence seems almost to be regarded as normal, given the lack of attention it receives from the same people who would be out in droves if any of these had been police shootings.

Yet, none of this matters to Black Lives Matter? I implore everyone to ask why, and then consider what IS behind BLM? 

 

Rise of the new “tolerant” Fascists: Does this emoji make me look racist?

The newest “trigger” for the modern day Brown Shirts is, it seems, something called “Cultural Appropriation”. This appropriation, and the Leftist freak out that follows, occurs when someone dares cook a dish or style their hair in a way that is deemed to belong to a certain race or color. Some examples include anyone who is not Black cooking greens, or fried chicken, or other Southern dishes. This is idiotic of course, because Southern is not a color, and Southerners of all races have been eating such foods for generations. It is also asinine because no Southerner in their right mind gets offended if a Yankee decides to make cornbread, collards and fried pork chops. Why the Hell would we get offended, if anything such an act would be a compliment. Further, why should we be putting up barriers between ethnicities and cultures? Is this not the polar opposite of being color blind? 

Today, however, being color-blind is no longer a value the Left espouses. In fact, the opposite is true. Now, being a person who judges people based on shared ideals and values rather than race are smeared as racists. It is the politics of division the Left champions now. It has even gotten so bad that, as actress, Ellen Pompeo found out that White people using “Black” emojis are attacked for RAAAAACISM!

Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo has been criticized by woke social justice warriors after using black emojis on Twitter, with some users accusing her of overstepping her bounds as “a privileged white woman”.

It all started after the actress praised the A&E network for changing the title of its documentary about the Ku Klux Klan from “Generation KKK” to “Escaping the KKK: A Documentary Series Exposing Hate in America.” Pompeo thanked the network for “caring enough to make changes” adding black clapping and thumbs-up emojis.

No, this is not from The Onion, or any other parody site folks, this outbreak of racial Obsession Syndrome actually happened over, yes emojis!

One user, who has since set her account private, wrote: “It’s not fair to see a privileged white woman use [people of color] emojis just because you can.”

“It comes off as really obnoxious,” she added.

Obnoxious you say? As obnoxious as attacking someone because they do not segregate their emojis? REALLY! But, this miscreant was not alone in her outrageously outrageous outrage! Pompeo, being a reasonable person offered up this tweet

Of course, she was answered with more “tolerance”

This sparked further tweets directed at the actress accusing her of racism. After she said that it’s “sad to see racism is still alive and well on all sides,” people attacked her suggesting reverse-racism is real. One person wrote: “reverse racism isn’t real. White people don’t experience racism”.

To which Pompeo replied saying “I’ve been called a white B**** and countless other things 50000 times today what would you call it?”

Despite this, the people continued ganging up on the actress, saying “you literally said reverse racism exist JUST APOLOGIZE AND LOG OFF stop embarrassing and contradicting yourself”.

See? Tolerance! This is what the Left’s incessant message of identity politics, and grievance mongering has wrought. People so consumed with bigotry and bitterness that they attack people based on nothing more being the wrong color. I feel badly for Pompeo, she seems like a nice person, but being nice, nor being a Liberal are of any use when you transgress against the new Brown Shirts! Not at all. You must walk the line, or else! Of course, there is a positive here. The more the unhinged Left acts out the more Americans will reject such despicable attitudes and bigotry which permeate the Left.

Family of violent, armed thug outraged that police are allowed to defend themselves

Via Bearing Arms

Convicted drug trafficker Frank “Scooterbug” Clark was shot and killed by Durham Police earlier this week after he reached for a gun in his waistband after being confronted by cops, and his family and allies are really mad that violent felons aren’t treated with more respect by officers who know they are violent, woman-abusing drug dealers.

Family and friends are voicing their frustrations and concerns one day after police shot and killed a Durham man.

Frank Nathaniel Clark, 34, died after being shot during a struggle with three officers. Durham Police Chief C.J. Davis said the officers – Charles Barkley, Monte Southerland and Christopher Goss – stopped to talk to Clark when he reached for a gun in his waistband and they heard a shot.

About a dozen demonstrators marched a little over a mile from Fayetteville Road, near the McDougald Terrace community where Clark was shot, to Durham Police Headquarters, voicing their concerns about what they describe as a broken relationship between Durham police officers and the community.

The demonstrators took their call for justice to the front door of police headquarters before returning to the street and forming a circle in the middle of Chapel Hill Street, shutting down the intersection between Duke Street and Gregson Street.

“Not only do I want change, the community wants change too,” said Clark’s brother, Michael Clark.

Michael Clark said he and his brother, who was known to the community as “Bug,” grew up in the McDougald Terrace neighborhood. He said he wants Durham police officers to be more respectful to residents and that many who joined the march feel intimidated by police.

“The physical contact with the community, how they go about it; there’s another way instead of just hopping out, saying ‘put your hands up’, searching and patting you down for guns,” Michael Clark said.

There is also another way for people with long records of beating women, carrying illegal weapons and, dealing drugs to conduct themselves isn’t there? How about not pulling your illegal firearm on police? How about respect for law enforcement from the “community”? After all, the police are trying to protect innocent people from thugs like Clark. Consider this quote from the news article

“This community deserves safety and community policing has not created more safety. It has led directly to the death of Frank Clark,” said demonstrator Serena Sebring.

Hmmm, it seems Clark was the type of person that makes these communities unsafe. And, to be blunt, Clark caused his own death by pulling his illegal weapon on police. So, my suggestion to these protesters would be to stop excusing bad behavior. Stop blaming police for doing their jobs. If the police can improve their tactics, then fine. But, the excusing of criminals and thugs must stop.
